men, larmers and all who are interested
in the growth of our town and county
to the groat importance of establishing
a canning factory at Iuka, which would
benefit both our agriculturists and town
people, and why is it that a movement
*s not on foot to establish one? There
!j enough vegetables and fruits raised
here every year to supply a small can
ning establishment—even the black
berry crop, if taken care of would be
worth several thousand dollars to the
country. If there was an establishment
of tnis kind here our farrrters could
reali.-e at least one hundred dollars per
acre by raising vegetables and Pinal1
fruits, instead of ten dollars per acre in
raising cotton. The Alliance and
YY'heelers would do well if they looked
to the establishment cf industries of
this kind instead of spending their time
in discussing financial and other mat
ters that they can not control. Uy a
united effort much good can be done
for our town end county . Who will be
the first to move in this matter?

Wat amaiter on Advertising.
John YVanawakor, the great l*hila>
delphia millionaire merchant, recently
spoko as follows about advertising
“I never in all my life used such a
thing as a poster or handbill. My plan
for fifteen years has been to buy so
much space-in- a newspaper and fill it
up with what t want. I would not give
an advertisement in a newspaper of 500
circulation -for 5000 dodgers or posters.
If I wanted to sell cheap jcweiry or run
a gamohog scheme, I might use pos
ters, but I would not insult a decent
reading public with handbills. The
class of people who read such things are
poor material to look for support in
mercantile affairs. I deai directly with
the publisher- I say to him, ‘How long
wiil you let me run a column of matter
through your paper for $10C or $6000
as the oase may be. I let him do the
figuring and if I think ho is not trying
to take more than hi3 share I give him
the copy. I lay aside the promts on a
particular line of goods for advertising
purposes. The first year I laid aside
$0,00; last year I laid aside arid spent
#40,000. I have done better t’hisyes1
and shall increase tho sum as tho profits
warrant it. I owe my success to the
newspapers, and to them I shall freely
jiyo a cortain profit of my yearly busi- I
aess."-—The Builders’ Gametic.

\Y e know of no prettier or more suit*
able location than the beautiful grove
which nature has provided than that or
near the Cayce spring, for the erection
of a camp ground. The citizens of
luKa and surrounding country could act
in concert and erect a large and com
modious shed, provided with scats sui‘
aule to seat a thousand peoplo at a very
little expense to each individual, and
this could be set apart as a place for a
yearly reunion and revival of the differ
ent churches. While some would come
for religions purpose?, others again
would merely come through gregarious
instincts, yet it is scarcely necessary to
add that it would lend attractions not
only to tbo town by drawing people
trom all parts of the country, but would
provide a well modulated place for en
joyment once a year that would be
looked forward to by many as a coro'.ty
well worth seeing.
Undoubtedly this would add attrac
tions by the many rustic dwellings that
would be erected by parlous persons
who would camp for the week. The
neat grove, would, with its pure sweet
water, lend many charms—a steady
breeze sifting through the drooping
plumes would add delight to the mate
rial pleasure of those who conie from
the coniines r.f the hem Pil nnr! cnlhrxr
city. Those grounds neatly cleaned
ar.d proparad with tents for tb? accom
odation of guests could be re fed to
persons who come from a distance.
We should like to hear what the peo
ple have to say on this subject and how
many are willing to take stock in an
enteiprise of this kind? l’y judicious
advertising and lot the people know that
they could get accomodation at a ref „
sonablo rate, several thousand would
visit Iuka during a ten days camp
meeting. Airangemont can be made
with the railroads for a cheap ram of
; transportation. Let us go to work and
get up the stock and erect the building
which could be used for many other
purposes during the year.
