TH' TAPER rrPPECENTEO FOR FOREIGN ADVERTISING BY THE i I GENERAL OFFICeS new york and chicago Ianches in all the principal citie? f Announcements. We are authorized to announce e following parties as candidates r the offices named, subject to th 'democratic primary election. T 1 i m i i i v- i i tin it li la a few days we hope to run at Ifust two columns of political news. Most of it will be puked from our exchanges and when we prints "KNOCK" there will be a "BOOST" riht close to it. Theo the people can draw their own conclusions. We will print the name of the paper in which the original article appeared aod in that way the people can see the sentiment of every part of the state. Later on we want to print in full each speech of the gubernatorial candidates. We have two of them now and as they are a page in length they will run in serials. The first speech to be printed will be decided by the flip on a coin. We think that w ill be fair to each man. The Hummer did not jump into publication for political purposes nor are we backed by politicans. We have not dabblied heretofore and it is our honest hope that we will NEVER get burnt in the seething cauldroa Ripping up men, rearing about this and ithat, ranting over so and so and roaring hither and you, never made frends. A man needs nowadays all the friends that he can get and we shall not make enemies by CUSSING CANDIDATES r or Secretary of State & JOE OWEN For Tax Assessor JESSE GILLIAM. R. C. KIRBY. JOHN T. MARION W. A. DENDY W J WILLIAMS Rural Credits. Too many laws are passed that the people can't understand. If they do it takes about a month's hard study and then when the whole law is learned what have they got? NOTHING. Just as the cotton pool was a failure so will be the Rural Credits that is, to the small farmer the man who feeds the world Big bugs can get up and with two spasms and three sweeps of the stars they will proclaim their love for the common people. They think up some bill that will blind the people as to its goodness the law is passed" nd the bibugs get the pie. So with Rural Credits. Tf """ "V. . u: If . ...

Hot Shots From The Political Pot During the political campaign this summer we intend to print a page or clippings from the state papers. Our idea is to give both sides of the question and let the readers detsjde for thetiselves. We will NOT be unfair enough to tell anybody HOW TO VOTE. That is their busi ness and ours is to give them the sentiment of the state. By printing these hot shots from both sides we will not show partiality. Now if we happen to get in a longer article for one mai thin another please don't say we are showing favors. Wait and see if we don't print just as hot hots on one side as we do the other. We shill endeaver to give credit for every clipping so the reader can know just how certa'n sec tions of the state are thinking. If this plan is not fair to both sides then we don't know what is the best way to run a newspaper. We would like to get every paper in Mississippi and before the election is hejd we want to print at least one article from tach pap.;r. NOW is that fair? We would like to hear more about it, For Sheriff B. M. SM1TIL JOE L DAVIS J. LUNDY SMITH R. F. BEASLEY For Chancery Clerk ; i W. A. WILKINSON. ( TOM H. JOHNSON . H. E. BRANNON r For Circuit Clerk W.

To L D.Roberts, whose post-office address is Rossville, Georgia: You are commanded to appear : " ire the Chancery Court of the i rat District of Chickasaw County, k ' lute, on the fourth Monday May, A. D. 1913, to defend the it in said Court of W. H. Neal. w herein you are the defendent. This the 11th day of March, A. D, ,:m. H. E. Brannon. Clerk. of 4k he shu Ther Swipping Editorial s. There is one thing about newspaper work that should be forever eliminated and that is using the other fellow's stuff without giving credit. It takes only a few seconds and a very small space to add the paper's name from which an article is copied. What little time is lost will be amply repaid in good will and in other ways that are helpful to the country paper. The first man who copies an editorial or other reading matter, sometimes puts "Ex" right under it. Thsn if another man copies it he must put Ex because he doesn't know what paper it originally came from. Many times it is not printed and the subscribers think it is the editor's own "effusion." Eve.y editor should regard his editorial page as the MAIN part of the paper. His name is up in the left hand corner and the editorials under his name MUST be his or credit given to the clippings that is if he wants to stand straight with the readers. Come on brother editors, let's cut out bought copy, let's give credit always, let's kill the old germ of laziness and father OUR OWN EDITORIALS. A Hearty Handclasp. One of the quickest ways to "size up" a man or woman is a casual handclasp. It will generally let the cat out of tbe bag, although there are exceptions to the rule. Shaking hands is an art with some people with others it is a nuisance. In a day's time you will meet a handclasp that i? a "gee whilliken" for pressure joints snap in the crash and your toes almost turned with pain. Meet another and the quick thrill of life flashe over your body with a "thank you, that's the way to do it." Another lays his hand into yours and you, feeling no desire to response. can hardly respond yourself. Then comes the shy, lifeless what do ytu call it anyhow? Sometimes you get to grab two fingers right at the end, but when it comes to ONE that's the limit. There is much in the grasp of hands that teHs character still no man should always condemn a poor handshake, because many people have never thought just how they do it. Did you ever see a candidate, traveling salesman or any regular business man with a poor handclasp? It is one of the best "go getters and come fetchum" in a man's personal possessions. It would be a great thing for teachers to teach the art. Try it.

We have read the Congressional Record and oodles of editorials about the famous Shipping Bill and it seems that one side has just as many supporters as the other. Enough ink has been used to make a good sized lake and still the thing isn't settled. When one paper flings an argument another hits right back with one a little bit stronger. Then it soars and soars until there seems to be no end to the argument. No bill in the history of the United States has hardly had as much notoriety as the Shipping Bill. It has been pummeled, praised, jabbed, petted, blotched, commended, and everything else in the way of praise or condemnation was hurled its way. If it were to look in the mirrow we wonder if it would know its own mug? Certain Illusions. l 8'e, New Shoe Shop in J. A. 11 meat 8tmd at Houlka. ; fciaranteed.
