OKOLONA MISS., JIN 22. 1916 ANNOUNCECENTS For Congress C. li FRANKLIN WILLIAM C. WARD T. U. SISSON Senator John S. Williams is said to have won a great per sonal victory at the Democratic convention at St. Louis in secur ing the adoption of a plank in the platform favoring a clothure rule in the Senate. Mr. Williams is usually right when he makes up his mind and arises to speak on any subject, yet we still believe he is human and liable to err; and this is one time we believe the liability has over taken him. Since the Senate was first or ganized, it has been the right of each and every senator to speak on any measure before that body and to talk just as long as he pleased, provided he could find something to say and physical endurance lasted with his voice. This riht, as privilege if you wish to call it such, has at times been abused and that very badly ; it has also served to defeat bad measures, and that perhaps a. often as to prevent good legisla tion. The Senate is supposed to be a body of gentlemen, chosen by the- people, a free sovereign people, to represent them and to see that their interests and rights respected by the whole natior; and it-is wrong to close the mouth of one of these so long as 1 e thinks the interest of his peop e is at stake. Such a rule has lorg been in force in the House and many times has gagged tie minority, and even forced a con siderable portion of the majority party to remain quietly in the r seats, while the 'bosses" put over a job not rue!- to their liking. . A clothure bill is wrong . in principle and bad in practice ai d will rise up" :to haunt its makers -no matter 'who they may be. The lpublicans are gettii. theirs in the House now, and if the Democratic Senate passes such a rule the time will come when the party will regret it. Having What Others Have Do not let your child be servilely ! WflMA M 0101119 imitative of others, but do not! If Ulflflll nVUIUO We all know that the desire to have what others have causes more than almost any other soc ial instinct, We must go where others go. we must do what others do, ,ve must dress like others, we must eat like others, we must travel like others. How often we do things quite indill'erent to our own "tastes and wishes simply because others do them. This tyranny of the notion of others is especially marked in a democratic society, . where evereyone is striving to get up in the world, and to have his wife get up in the world,- and to have her show it by dressing and entertaining as others do, or a little better. Most of all are we anxious not to have our children in any way outdone by the children of others. If Maude next door takes violin lessons at five dollars a lesson, our Gladys must pay five, or six. If Maud's brother, Jim, has a motor cycle, our Tom also must have one. This pro cess too often lands Gladys and Tom in the poorhouse, where, to be sure, they will find a good many others only they are not the others we wish to imitate. Therefore, prudent and thrifty parents never tire ot counseling' wwvniaiciwiicu their children.'Do not consider , many sections of the cotton belt what others have. Govern your I in such numbers as to', be a nutiau lw vmir inMmo nA hzva present menace to tne crop. L.asc only those things that you can let him and still more her be odd, be different, be out of touch with his little world in those minor things that count more for success in life than many persons realize. Watch chil dren's fashions and follow them. When you buy a new toy or a new implement of sport, buy one that will be right, not one that perhaps costs a few cents less and that will be mocked at with the bitter mockery, that children practice and feel. You were young once yourself. Go right back there and try to save your children some of tjie unnec essary misery that you felt. There will be enough necessary misery that you cannot save them. As the main rule of life, hav ing what others have is pitiful. As a correction- for individual oddities and little tactless awk wardnesses, it is -a most useful guide and not to be neglected.
