F. H. Reno, of Highland, was in Iuka

The Reporter representative dropp
ed in at the lirka Normal 'institute
last Tuesday at 2 o’clock. Wo found
tlie school assembled in the chapel,
discussing the great Pullman strike.
Some charges against the President
for calling the United States troops
were read and the discussion began.
| It was intensely interesting for a time,
I and the speakers ontered into the dis
| cession with spirit l'or an hour this
was kept up, sometime some one on
one hand arguing against Mr. Cleve
land, making some very astonishing
and remarkable statements that
smacked greatly of anarchy and popu
lism. On the other hand an array
of able speakers championed the Pres
ident’s cause and tore the fabric of
tlu-ir opponent’s argument into shreds.
The hour was up before a vote was
reached, and Prof. Dean adjourned the
meeting until the following day.
Accepting an invitation of our polite
street commissioner, A. 15. Patterson,
the Reporter scribe walked out toseo
the work that has been dme on the
streets since he tins taken the work in
hand, lie 1ms been engaged on the
streets north of the railroad and has
them in excellent condition. Ho has
turned gullies and watercourses, and
has put streets in tine traveling condi
tion that a short time ago were impas
sable. Only two more streets have to
bo worked on this side of town, w hen
he will turn his attention to those on
the south side of the railrord. He
spoke of several places that need work
right away, which he would attend to
as soon as he could get to them. Mr.
Patterson is doing a much-needed
work, and judging from what he has
already done, he will use what funds
he has at his command judiciously.
Olen Matthews, who has been circu.
latiug among his host of Iuka friends,
returned this week to his farm on Bear
creek. Mr. Matthews is one of the
most popular young men of Tisho
mingo, and is a stanch champion ol
the young democracy. His f lends are
urging him to enter the race for the
office »of Sheriff, and undoubtedly he
would receive a strong support. Some
may think it a little early to speak of
such things, but not too early for can
didates to coma before t’te people.
Should Mr. Matthews decide to enter
the race he will doubtless make the
fact known th ough the columns of the
Reporter.
The handsome advertisement of R.
H. Watson & Son appears on the first
page of this issue’s supplement. Such
enterprise is highly commendable and
well worthy the emulation of other
business men in our town. Mr. Chas.
Watson is a capable young business
man, handsome, polite, and approach
able at all times. We invite the friends
of the Reporter to patronize those
who give their patronage to us—a
rule which this paper strictly observes.
The rain that fell Sunday afternoon
was at the right time and has revived
the appearance of vegetation. About
two miles south of Iuka there is a strip
of country that failed to have more
than a slight shower, but beyond this
a few miles a splendid ruinfail is re
ported. At Rooneville only a slight
shower fell, but with these two excep
tions it seems that the rain was nrettv
general throughout northeast Missis
sippi.
The County School Board met last
Friday. There was very little business
before the Board. Wright school was
made a line school, anti a cut-oil school
was established at the old Union
church in the 5th distric'. After some
other matters of minor importance
were settled the Bt>urd adjourned until
the regular meeting next year.

Since wo visited your town during
circuit cou t we have concluded that
wo will have to be annoyed with can
didates for two years before the elec
tion. Sometimes I conclude that the
election is e!o-e at hand, as some seem
to be very enthusiastic over the office
of sheriff. Hope I will be able to vote
for some one when the time comes.
The health of the people is generally
good at present, except whooping
cough among the children.
We hope that you will be able to
visit us in the near future and take a
view of our beautiful valley and see
how bad we need a railroad.
School opened up this week with a
good attendance and M. T. Shook as
teacher with his usual skill.
One can almost discern that there
are a few saints in these parts since
circuitcourt. Things seem very quiet.
