There is a statute law in this State to
prohibit the firing of woods in certain
masons of the year and if we mistake
tot, the time expires about the first of
March, and if any person or persons set
ire to the woods after the time prohibi
,ed by law, are guilty of a crime and
fable to indictment and prosecution,
file grahd jtiry would do well to look
nto this matter and see if the firing of
woods fit this sedson of the year can't be
rat a stop to. It is getting to be dan
;erous to fencing ana housed; especially
Lt so dry il time as at present. II the

1 effect • against the carrying of con

the report of the deadly pistbi. This
should be looked after and thfe practice
pot a stop to. YVe have a county con
tractor who should hdye a few of these
law-breakers in his charge. It may be
that some gentleman do harry concealed
weapons, but it is a notorious fact that
thieves and blackguards do carry them
tor the purpose of assassination and
robery, ( and force good citizens to do so
n self defence. YVe insist that a law
made t>y our government for a civil
sommunity should either be onfoifced or
‘epealed. It has been said with a good
leal of truth, that the practice of carry
og concealed weapons, was for the
rant of both moral and physical cour
se.

Here are two, of a hundted progressive

another to a town, incites a livelier in

have money to invest, lock it up in the
vaults of banks far from home, to lose
it entirely by the failure of the bank, 01

The following froth Mr. K S. Stoors
of Vernon county, Missouri, a ihan thor
oughly versed in the canning busioes,
should induce our citizens to intestigatt
'he feasibility of establishing a canning
factory at Iuka.
Mr. Storris says:
••I do not know Of any investmenl
which pays better than a canning fac
tory. Ordinarily they will retiirn from
25 to 40 per cent; ana even more when
judiciously managed.
“You can dispose of the goods juts as
fast as they are ready fpr the market
and that feature enables you to transact
the business with a comparatively small
sapital. Ai the work is done ip sum
mer a cheap, biiilding will answer all
requirements, and that together with the
machinery for a laitfe business; winch
will not cost over .$3000. That money
will provide a factory that will give em
iloyment to 100 women and girls, and
he disbursements each week for vege
tables and labor wqtild run from $800
o $1000. ^n, aotiye woman earns
