In this issue Mr. J. C. Pinkerton announces his candidacy to the voters of Lexington for tlie office of Mayor. Tho Times takes pleasure in calling the attention of Lexingtoiiiaus to this gentleman.

In a business way lie lias devoted his time to fire insurance, and his energy and fair dealing have contributed to swell the vohimn of bis business to great He is keenly alive to the proportions, iiest interests of this town and his talents would find a congenial field in administrating the mayor's office.

The Times job department has just received the largest order that lias ever been given to any plant in this county, and possibly in Mississippi, 109,000 checks for the Merchants & Farmers Bank. Another large order 20,000 placed with us last week was deposit slips, by tlie Bank of Lexing ton.

It is a shame that the railroad company will not elevate the tract to prevent this inconvenience to the travelling public, If the citizens of Lexington and Tchula will petition the commissioners, we believe they will order the railroad to take steps to prevent the constant re currence of this trouble at every freshet.

Deal - Editor : When I wrote tiefore the farmers were Since that time we have had, several nice showers, and on last Sunday, the 29th, we hail one of the hardest rains that has fallen this year. It lasted nearly till day and did much damage to crops. In many places corn was blown flat to the ground and consequently will lie badly damaged before it can lie gathered. One of our neighbors said the 'rain damaged his crop to tlie amount of ten liales of cotton. Many others were considerably out not to that extent. But this, there will lie more corn made this year than has lieen made for several years. One good farmer says that in order to make room for his corn, after fill ing his barn, cribs and outhouses, he will lie forced to tighten the wire around his pasture to hold the balance. Potato and Louisiana cane' crops were never finer at this season of the year. Potatoes are large enough to eat and cane taller than a man's head. Several from this neighborhood at tended the picnic at Benton on Fri day, the 27th. All seemed to have had a pleasant time. There were many people present, being at least eight hundred or more, and plenty of din ner for all. Hon. E. F. Noel of Holmes county and Hon. Thomas of Washington county, both aspirants for the governor's office, ad dressed the people. Mr. Noel seemed to lie the favorite. The many friends of Mrs. Henry Zeigler will be glad to know she is rapidly improving from an operation for gallstones, which was performed Thursday by Dr. E. J. Johnson of Yazoo City. Misses Josie and Kate Hollowell, Mr. J. R. Anderson and children were for rain. damaged, after all E. N. last Your Prescription D What the doctor thinks counts.

Fear of reformation keeps some men single, while the lack of a chance koeps others thus. Only blind love keeps some men from seeing through the coat of pow der on the damsel's face. Some girls smilfe for the benefit of others, never dreaming it will cause a wrinkle later on. Some men hold up others to the world as being in debt, while they can't pay interest on theirs. Some men make mistakes and try to justify themselves on their good in tentions. Some women talk most about what they'know least. It.s very easy to convince ourselves that we are lietter than our neighbor. It's nice to build castles ib the air, but let's do some real live work to see (lie difference. The mail at the liottom lias one ad vantage over tlie one at the top. lias not so far to fall. Some men know more than they can tell, while there are others who tell more than they know. There is no difference between a smart girl and a foolish one, they both think they are smart.. It's lots easier to see others' faults than our own, because we are looking that way most of the time. All people are built of clay, but there was no refining process in con nection with some, judging from their morals. Do unto others as you wish them to do unto you. lias been revised and now reads Do unto others as you wish to. If you realized what we hoped for. we would be greatly astonished at our selves. Make all you can. Keep all you get, pay no debts, uml trust no man, is old, but is practical yet. _ If we could see ourselves as others do, there would be a great difference in our make-up. If our eyes were in the back of our heads, we could catch our neighbors —often—grinning at us. Don't do what you think to lie right and risk the consequences; but do what you know to be light and there is none to risk. Never tell all you know at once, save something for next time, or you might lie embarrassed for something to say. Well, Hayseed, hast thou, like the little birds of the air, when the last rose.of summer has faded; the trees have lost their beautiful foliage, fall ing to mother earth to rise no more, and the chilly wintry tilast approaches, — flown to a more sunny clime? If so, fly back to us, and cheer us up with your bright and sunny sayings; for we miss even one of our number. Thanks, W- VV. L., for your mention of us. We appreciate all such from Christian gentlemen, like you. Be caret ul, Daisy Dean, or we may get our hat on one-sided and bow some, because of your reference to us. Well, we had the loveliest rain of the year last Sunday ; rained all (lay and jioured at that, even the hills overflowed. I think the ''old man" must have pulled out the bung and forgot to stop it again. J. D. Autry and family hied them selves off to Durant Saturday to visit relatives.

I hope all the correspondents will write regularly, that their spicy say ings may be read by REX. He were Cypress. Well. Mr. Twenty Six, will you hand me a chair and allow me to have off my old sunbonnet while I sit quietly in the corner and tell you all about what the good people are doing down here ia this ''moral vineyard" If so, I'll be "obliged" to you.

Murtagh and son, Ewin, to Elnmezer, jiassed through here en route to Pickens, where he met his aunt, Mrs. Graham, and, cousin, Harvey Graham, of New Orleans, they are sending a few days with he ami his family. Mr. Preston Rogers has l)een wrest ling with the chills this week. We are glau to stay lie is improving. Say, Mr. Ninety Six, here did you get that new patent umbrella, I saw you riding along with Sunday evening. Got it up there mongst them telephone girls, I guess, eh? Looked mighty "sporty,'' anyway. Mesdames B. S. Gallagher and R. K. Nilaml called on Mrs. T. II. Murtagh Thursday eve. In our last items we were telling you all about all the boys leaving. Half of them are back already. But don't shed so many tears, ''Bess," he will come back bye and bye. "M, " I can guess why you are all smiles again.

Twenty-Six. you know I am a mighty good girl, sometimes, only when I am in bad company, you could have seen the pitiful look upon my face when I came back, you could not have been so cruel as Pete, as to suggest smashing me with the breadspoon—I am so very small. Miss Bena Niland of this charming burg visited Misses Wherry at Franklin last week. Well, as news is getting scarce, I guess I had better chaw off for this time. Much success to The Times and readers. If DUTCHIE. Tchula. Dear Editor; AVill write you dots from our little town this week.

To The Holmes County Times: Friday of last week was a big day at Benton in Yazoo People came -from all over the county, that is from nearly every part of Yazoo and a few from Holmes. Two of the candidates for governor spoke, Mr. N. E. Thomas, of Washington and Mr. E. F. Noel, oi Holmes. Both sjieeclies were well re reived. Mr. Thomas taught school m Some of his Benton 23 years ago. former pupils were there, with large families, to welcome him on his first return, since those days. He had quite a number of friends. He dealt with state affairs showing that the money used in builed the capitol, during he Longino administration should have been raised by bond, as provided by law, instead of being paid out of rent revenue, and that this was the of the subsequent issue of state lKinds. He dealt with the state pen itentiary question, showing gross mis management and large losses to the state and that many things were un accounted for,especially large amounts Mr. Noel spoke after cur cause .,| cot till) ed dinner to a large and attentive au dience. He spoke of his work in the legislature, including tho primary election law, which he wrote; the elective judiciary amendment, which he prepared, which was adopted by the people and defeated on ateehnicality of the C. O. D. liquor bill which he prepared, and which was introduced by Hon. 3. N. Sample, which cut off that kind of business; and especially of pure elections and nominations, made so by law, which would lint it the purposes and amounts of money that could be expended to obtain nom ination, thus giving the poor man the same chance of success as a rich one, and make the nomination turn in the man instead of the money expended. The part of Yazoo county that was represented at the gathering, and over a thousand people were present, w.s tor Mr. Noel bv a two thirds majority.
