MISSISSIPPI GAINING EYES_OF NATION Mississippi Is a State That Leads All Others in Many Lines of Industry . Statistics made by the Government Census Department show that Misis sippi, next to Colorado, is the health iest State in the Union. Comparsons of the death rate per thousand pop ulation by States show that Missis sippi’s per centage was 11.1, both white and black. With blacks elim inated, the per centage was only 8.6. The death rate per thousand in Cali fornia, the much advertised State of Sunshine, was 13.1; for Massachu setts, the state that prides itself on its education and sanitation, 12.1; for New York, 12.2. Mississippi has generally been re garded by the people of the states further North as a swampy un healthy state, where typhoid and malaria raged rampant. Mississippi ans and those familiar with the facts knew this to be an absurd notion, yet it has existed, to our detriment, or many years. The above figures should correct this impression and put us before the nation in our true light. Mississippi is the second healthiest state in the Union. Think of that! Recently the United States Com missioner of Education said Missis sippi has “made more progress edu cationally with the past few years than any state in the American Un ion.” Mississippi leads in Health and Educational advancement. Missis sippi has the richest land in the United States. These three essential advantages offer the home-seeker the most desirable location in Ameri ca. Yet Mississippi has even more to offer. Mississippi made the greatest per centage of increase in the sale of but. ter fat of any state in the last census period. Mississippi lead the entire Missis sippi Valley with a 34 per cent in crease in corn production during the last census period. Mississippi led every state in the Union during the last census period with a 96 per cent increase in hay production. Last year Mississippi ranked third in the production of cotton by states. Mississippi stands in line to be bene fited as much as any state in the United States by the development of the water power at Muscles’ Shoals, Ala., only a few miles from the Mis sissippi state line. Mississippi has as good, if not bet ter, transportation facilities than any state in the South. Both water and rail transportation are well devel oped. Thousands of other advantages can' be truthfully enumerated. What Mississippi needs is an advertising campaign that will cover the whole country. We have the advantages; our assertations are backed by facts and figures. California was made by advertising; Florida came into her own by shouting her advantages. Mississippi can do the same. LOOK OUT Look out for Williamson if he gets you by the nose, You’ll never know when the dinner hour blows. Look out for Hendricks, if he gets you by the neck, You’ll never know but what your name is Heck. Look out for Tarver, if he gets you by the tail, Just leave your q»r at home and hunt you up a rail. Look out for Robinson, if he gets you by the arm, He’ll do you no good, but possibly some harm. Look out for Murray, if he is elected, 'Twill be no more than Bob expected. —A VOTER.

PA’S SPEX Just a day or two ago We had a private show 'Twafi Pa and his darned old spex Which are forever lost To Ma ‘tis quite a cost For he yells for her to “hunt ’em by Hex.” Now Ma flurries ’roun 'Till the glasses she has found Then calmly continues on her way . While Pa takes a cheer Where Ma’s work is quite near Opening all the mail for the day. But a day or two ago As I have said before His glasses were shore nuff gone Ma found them on the floor One lens broken, first before Ma put two pieces back all wrong. Pa put specks on, looking sad Said to Ma “I’m feeling bad Get the Dr. here right soon Everything looks mighty queer” Th«i poor Ma wipes off a tear Got some water and a spoon. Pa said “Ma, if I should die You and children mustn’t cry I’ll leave everything I’ve got to you” Then Ma kissed him, saying “Dear, You look well, why so queer?” — P* said, “It is your first, your due ” Pa took from his moistened eyes Then it was the lens he spies Says to Ma, “I’ll walk around” Ma sees glasses, then guessed why Pa was sick en’uf to die First smiled, then laughed pro found. N Pa said, “Darn it, it was you You keep me always in a stew Why it is I’d like to know. Next time you play such a trick Putting me in such a fix Divorce I’ll get and then I’ll go. —MRS WALTER JONES DANGER FROM ILL-ADVISED LEGISLATION Fire insurance affects directly the protection and credit of every in dividual. Representatives in legislatures are prone i^o believe that every evil, or every practice that they think is evil, can be remedied by legislation. They wish to regulate by statute per sonal and business conduct of every kind. Laws are piled upon laws; pro posals for state and municipal owner ship in various fields, and other pat ernalistic measures are common. In Arizona a bill for a state cement plant andi another for a state fund insur ing state employees were introduced recently; in Colorado it was urged that the state shbuld write automobile insurance; and a similar bill was in troduced in Massachusetts, where an effort was made to compel insurance companies to invest forty per cent of their premiums in dwelling houses. In theory these measures are ap pealing, but in practice they tend to disturb business. Insurance is the basis of credit. When a man has a fire and his property is insured he want3 his money at once. Insurance reserves must be kept in assets that can be turned into cash immediately. If forty per cent of insurance com panies’ funds were loaned on dwell ings, and a conflagration should strike a community during a period of de pression, it would be impossible for the companies to convert their mort gages into cash with sufficient speed to pay insurance claims a spromptly as would be desired. This illustrates an ill-advised measure which would undermine the stability of a business that is vital to the nation. WHY DODGE THE ISSUE? The new inome tax figures tell a : plain story with a plain lesson. In i one year, the number of Americans paying taxes on incomes above $100, £00 decreased from 3,600 to 2,300. That is a loss of 1,300. The governments of the United States are practically inviting people to evade their taxes by seeking re lief through investment in tax-free securities. The governments, local and nation al, lay before the man of large in come a great mass of their securities, every few days, and say to them: If you will hand over some 6f youi money in exchange for these securi ties, we will see that you pay no tax es on the income that you draw from the loan. Many taxpayers accept this in vitation and thus evade, or dodge taxes, thereby unloading a fierce tas burden on the rest of us. , So long as the governments impost enormous taxes, and at the same time offer a ready way out, the presenl abuse will go on. Politicians who rage against riel tax dodgers, and then vote for tax free securities, are merely beating the air, and they know it Colds Cause drip aod influenza IAXAT1VT PROMO OUIMN* rate** • b imam.

I sons acting singly or jointly with an other or others, by means of any kind of force, threats, coercian, in timidation, or violence to cause or induce or to attempt to cause or in duce, any person engaged in a law ful occupation to quit such employ ment, or to refuse or to decline to accept or begin, a lawful employ ment.” The penalty for violation of this law shall be a fine not exceed ing $300, a jail sentence of six months or both. Utah is determined to give every man his constitutional right to work at a lawfufl occupation. This may be objectionable to dictators but it is a fine thing for the country.

RADIO IMPROVES RIVER SERVICE The radio developmet of radio and its use in commercial life are illu strated in its application to the opera tion of steamboats on the Mississippi river from St Louis to New Orleans 1100 miles. One of the great ojections to river traffic in the past was its isolation. Today all of the towboats and self propelled barge units used on short auxiliary runs as feeders are equip ped with wireless. They report their positions several times a day and their movements are watcher as closely as are train movements in a dispatcher’s office. Radio is revolutionizing Missis sippi river shipping and speeding up the arrival and departure of freight though, putting tha shipper and the boat companies in close touch with each other, thus obviating delays in loading and unloading freight or in waiting on the arrival or departure of boats. In this manner radio supplies a missing link in our inland water ways transportation. SIGNALS OF DISTRESS Water Valley People Should Know How Co Read and Heed Them. Disordered kidneys give many sig nals of distress. The secretions may be dark, con tain sediment. Passages are sometimes frequent, scanty, painful. Backache is often present day and night Headaches and dizzy spells may oc cur. Weakened kidneys should receive quick help. Don’t delay. Use a special kidney remedy. Doan’s Kidney Pills are for weak kidneys, backache and urinary dis orders. Water Valley evidence proves their worth. J. B. Trusty, mechanic, Central St., Water Valley, says: “Some time ago my kidneys became weak. They act ed too often and the secretions were changeable in color, sometimes they were dark and then again as clear as spring water. I heard Doan’s Kidney Pill's so well spoken of l bought a box at the Trusty Drug Store. Doan’s cured me of the trouble and my kid neys are now as strong «s they ever were. I am glad to recommend Doan’s. Price 60c, at all dealers. Don’t simply ask for a kidney remedy—get Doan’s Kidney Pills—the same that Mr. Trusty had. Foster-Milburn Co., Mfrs.. Buffalo. N. Y THE PEOPLE MUST HELP Senator Reed Smoot of Utah, in an address in Los Angeles, wams the A merican people that never again will federal taxes l^e less than $3,000, 000,0(10 a year, and says that prob ably in a few years they will be more than that. With such an annual overhead star, ing us in the face, it would seem the height of folly for either states or nation to burden the taxpeyers with socialistic undertakings which Involve the government in industrial activity in various forms such as ad vqcated by so-called progressive, ultra-progressive and radical politi cal leaders. The best way to keep the tax bill down is to keep the govern ment out of business, reduce the of ficial overhead at every point possi . ble, do away with the issuance of tax-exempt bonds which now offer a loophole for billions of dollars of wealth to escape taxation, and to fight for business administration in every department from the smallest school district up to the nation itself. ne Kind You Have Always Bought, and which. has been use for over thirty years, has borne the signature of — on the wrapper all these years just to protect the coming . generations.
