The city doctors have worked faithfully night and day and the remarkably low death rate speaks volumes in favor of their skill and the constant and efficient service rendered the public during the ravages of the epidemic. The disease seemed to have reach ed its crest or high state about Sun day and has been gradually abating or "running out” every day since. The men who were first stricken are beginning to return to their work at the I. C. shops, the Yocona Mills have again begun operation, and there is a general improvement in conditions all over the city. If the public will continue to exercise due caution and care it is hoped to wipe the disease out entirely within the next 10 days. WATER VALLEY FAIR PRIZE WINNERS AND CONTRIBUTORS Although there was only about two weeks announcement the community fair here on Oct. 5 was quite a suc cess. In fact it surpassed the reason able expectations of the County Agents as well as the people of Water Valley and the surrounding community. Ther were on exhibition 28 differ ent agricultural products including several of the importory clovers. The display of alfalfa attracted quite a bit of interest. This was grown on Mr. J. It. Sissel’s place in south ! western part of town by Mr. A. Crocker. The piece of ground on which this was grown was planted 7 years ago, and today has almost a perfect stand. There was a fine display of sorghum, and its products. The exhibit of the various varities of field peas, velvet beuus and soy beans was especially good and shows just what good forage crops can be grown here. There was quite a variety of fruits : h(A. n, both fresh and canned, which snow* uiul tuc folks are all thorough believers in the home orchard propo sition. In order for the people to become acquainted with a disease of peaches there were shown several brown rot peaches (mummies, as they are called.) These were collected from an orchard clinging to the trees the day before the fair. These mummy peaches can be found n al most every orchard in the county that has not been sprayed for the disease. The exhibit of vegetables only shows that the people are complying with the wishes of the War Depart ment in having war gardens. There was shown either fresh, canned or dried nearly every vegetable that can be growu in this section. There were more than 70 head of fine hogs shown, most of which were ic^ioicicu ux suujou tu and all first class specimens of their respective breeds. Hardly anyone knfew. that there were so many nice hogs in the community. • Quite a few of these were hogs that The Peoples Bank had bought and sold, to the farmers and their boys to encourage hog raising. The Elks Club has done its bit in encouraging hog rais ing. There were several good milch cows and young mule colts on hand also. In spite of the fact that the peo ple had but a few days to prepare for an exhibit of any kind the col lections of everything did credit to Water Valley and it is proof sufficient that the people are prepared for liv ing at home and that they do not have to depend on having this food shipped in from other points. Mrs. Woods, Miss Mary Agnes Carter, Supt. J. E. Hodnett and Cir cuit Clerk, Wallace Young rendered Suable assistance to the County Agents in preparing for the fair. Everybody seemed well pleased with the day's results and several have expressed themselves in favor of a fair here next fall. So the thing to do is to begin now for next year for there is sure to be one. Every body wants it. There is no better way for the farmers to show and ad vertise their stock and farm products than at fairs.

We are still enjoying the Freedom which they are fighting and dying for. Yalobusha County's Allotment $220,000.00 i Subscribed to Date Only $165,000.00 Deficiency $55,000.22 With only two days in which to raise our deficiency of $55,000.00, the question is to ask yourself, “Have I done my part?” “Have I done what I could?” There is only one person who knows what you should do—and that is yourself. What is the money to be used for from the sale of these bonds? To support our home boys, of course. Every other county in every other state is doing what we are asked to do, subscribe to the Fourth Liberty Loan with 4 V4 per cent interest on your money, payable every six months, with your property as security as well as your wealthy neighbor. Now what are you going to do? Just make up your mind, go to your Bank and hand in your subscription before 12 o’clock Saturday, October the 19th. Make a sacrifice if necessary, one time in your life. Yalobusha County has never failed to do its part and is not going to fail when our Uncle Sam calls on us for Men or Money—Now do your part. H. K. HUNTER, Co. Chairman , J. LELAND TRUSTY, Sales Director Water Valley, Miss., October 18th, 1918 UNCLE SAM SAYS YOU MUST PAY UP WITHINTWO WEEKS Only Two More Issues of The Herald Before Your Name Is Taken off The List, If You Are Not Paid Up. In order to conserve print paper the War Industrial Board has issued the fallowing regulations governing the publication of weekly newspa pers which every newspaper will be compelled to observe. We must have our subscription books in order not later than November first, show ing that no subscription is overdue more than three months. We trust that our friends will appreciate our obligation to meet these war require ments, of our government and not make it necessary to drop a single name from our lists on account of arrearages. The Herald has never failed to grant credit to any deserving person, and the management would gladly extend further extension of time on the back subscription accounts if it was possible. But in this case we are compelled to enforce the collec tion of ALL back accounts. Now we hope you will treat us as fair and square as we have treated you during all the years we have been publish ing the paper. We don’t want to take a single name off the list, neith er do we want to give your account to a lawyer to enforce collection—so we ask you to kindly comply with the government’s order and settle your account at once. Following is the text of the gov ernment’s order affecting every news paper: The discontinuance of all subscriptions that are not re newed and p£’id in advance at the time the subscriptions ex pire. The elimination of all free copies except one to each advertiser. The elimination of all exchanges ex cept where the papers received are absolutely essential to the conduct of the paper. The discontinuance of the practice of conducting subscription contests or clubbing arrangements when the weekly paper does not receive ap proximately full subscription price. MUST REPORT AMOUNT USED. Publishers of weekly news papers wall be supplied by the war industries with blanks for the purpose of report ing the amount of paper used by them each month from Sept 1, 1917 to Sept. 1, 1918. The statements made by the pub lishers will be in the form of affida vits, and each month for the next twelve they will be required to make a sworn statement showing the a mount of paper consumed during that month, and it is expected that this amount will be 15 per cent less than that used during the same month of the previous year. Publishers who have stock on hand will not be allowed to use in larger ratio than those who must buy from month to month. Failure to make accurate reports, or failure to make reductions will re sult in either mills or jobbers being required to shut off the supply of paper to the offending publisher. It is not the desire of the war in dustries board to seriously injure the business of any weekly newspaper, and there will be some exceptions made to the general rules in order to avoid such injury. But these ex ceptions will be announced general ly, and will govern in all cases to which they apply. The board can not undertake to consider each in dividual case. It is not expected at this time that any further reductions in the use of print paper will be made, but the war industries board has made it clear that should the fuel problem become worse further reductions may be found necessary they would be based on the amount of paper then being used by each paper, and for that reason it is very important that while each publisher should make the required reduction that is now asked, he should not, for his own protection, make more than the required reduc tion. REQUIRE PAYMENT IN ADVANCE The saving should be made by cut ting off every particle of unprofitable circulation. Cut off the dead-heads, the people who do not pay in advance, and set the subscription pries M ft point where, even with a less number of subscribers, there will be a greater revenue. A reduction in size will inevitably mean more than a 15 per cent reduc tion in paper consumption, and when a greater reduction is made its pub lisher simply places his paper at a disadvantage with its competitors, and should another reduction he necessary he would be unable to meet it without going out of business en tirely, a thing the government wishes to avoid. Every weekly newspaper must be prepared to swear to the amount of paper used during the past 12 months, by months, and then he must figure a monthly reduction from these figures of only 15 per cent. OAKLAND FAIR PRIZE WINNERS The Community Fair at Oakland Tuesday was considered by many the best ever held there. There was a big crowd of people present.
