IRON DEPOSIT FOUND.
Rich Field Near Enterprise Will Be
Developed.
Enterprise.—The citizens in this sec
tion hre elated over the report of Dr.
T. N. Louis, state mineralogist, in re
gard to the iron ore deposits and the
prospects to develop them in this sec
tion. It has been known for several
years that the land in and adjacent to
Enterprise was underlaid with au iron
ore vein—being an ore of superior qual
ity. At one time an Englishman pur
chased several thousand acres of land
here, with the intention of developing
the iron, but owing to his demise the
land fell to other heirs and the proposi
tion was not carried out. At that time
several official analyses were made of
the ore by mineralogists, and they re
ported that the ore would make a gen
eral average of 40 per cent iron. Last
summer Dr. Lowe’s attention was called
to same, and he paid this section two
visits of several days’ duration, made a
thorough investigation of the field, se
lecting specimens sufficient to make an
analysis, and after ranking same, at his
annual report to the state, lie gave out
the information that the tost showed a
general average of 32 per cent iron, that
the quality was excellent and, consider
ing the unlimited supply and many nat
ural advantages, that the ore had a
commercial value and could be handled
at a highly remunerative profit.
Prosperity Despite Weevil.
Enterprise.—While the boll weevil re
duced the yield of cotton, below/a 50
per cent average, farmers are not dis
couraged, and they are meeting their
obligations without ascrificing their
property. The corn crop is the best in
years.
Cleanliness Advocated.
Okolona.—Carefulness, cleanliness and
pride of home were emphasized in a
strong and common sense address by
Wallace A. Battle, principal of the Oko
lona Industrial School, before an assem
blage of negro farmers, students and
other citizens.
White Boy Pardoned.
Jackson. —Gov. Brewer lias pardoned
Frank Howell, a white boy, 10 years of
age. The governor discovered that the
hoy’s parents had died when he was a
baby, and his rearing had been entrusted
to an irate old uncle, whose cruelty to
the boy was known throughout George
county. One day the uncle gave the
boy a severe lashing, and ho still bears
the marks of the thrashing. The lad
brooded over what he considered unjust
punishment, and securing a gun, shot
and killed his relative.
Confederate Veteran Dead.
Jackson.—Thos, J, Love, a Confeder
ate veteran, who served from beginning
to the end of the Civil War, died at
the home of his daughter, Mrs. A. R,
Coleman, aged 80 years.
Issue Road Bonds.
Marks. —The board of supervisors of
Quitman county ordered an increase of
$25,000 road bonds. This is the sec
ond issue of this amount within the past
twelve months, and it will be divided
among the five supervisor’s beats.

HEAD A MASS OF PIMPLES
Hyattsville, Md. —“My little boy was
taken with an itching on the scalp.
There was an ashy place on his head
about the size of a ten-cent piece, and
the hair was falling from this place
by the roots. In about ten days all
over his head were these ashy spots
which looked like ringworm, but were
porous-llke. The Itching and burning
made him scratch a great deal. His
head had gotten so that it was just a
mass of mattery little pimples all
heaped on each other, and when I took
off his night-cap, the hair and flesh
came off at the same time. I really
thought he would lose his whole scalp.
He couldn’t sleep for five weeks, It
would Itch and burn until I thought
he would go Into convulsions.
“I used different soaps and salves
to no satisfaction. Then I decided to
use the Cuticura Soap and Ointment.
Finally I noticed he began to sleep all
night. I used one cake of Cuticura
Soap and one box of Cuticura Oint
ment and he was entirely cured. He
has a better growth of hair now than
he had at first.” (Signed) Mrs. Ida
S. Johnson, Mar. 26, 1912.
Cuticura Soap and Ointment sold
throughout the world. Sample of each
free, with 32-p. Skin Book. Address

Epigram.
“That wasn’t a bad epigram on the
magistrate’s part,” said the somewhat
educated tramp, who had been con
victed for vagrancy.
“What did he say?” asked the
tramp’s pal.
"Seven days,” came the reply.
"That ain’t no epigram, Is It?”
“I’m sure It is. I asked a parson
once what an epigram was, and he
says, ‘lt’s a short sentence that
sounds light, but gives you plenty to
think about.”
Th# Way.
“Come, my dear, let’s travel into
slumberland.”
‘Well, mamma, can we travel on
the sleepers?”
Unworthy Competition,
