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.
