THE SETTING SEASON IS ON—
AUGUST 23, 24, 25, 1921 MEMPHIS, TENN.
SLIP YOUR EGG UNDER. SHE’LL HATCH OUT THE BIG IDEA!
WHAT THEY SAY.
Mr. Joe Greaves returned Sat
urday from Chase, La., where he
has been visiting his &on, Mart
Greaves, for a we< j k. There is a
settlement near Chase made up
of former Neshoba Oountians,
John Wells, Jim Lofton, Mart
Greaves etc. Mr. Greaves says
they have the finest crops he bus
seen, corn and Gotten They have
planted half their lands in corn
and half in cotton They do not
use any commercial fertilizer in
the neighborhood but the Coun
ty agent is experimenting with
fertilizer this year. Mr. Greaves
brought a pretty pair of eight
pointed buck horns back with
him. John Wells killed the buck
last fall. The horns were sent
back to Dr. J. Stribling. Mr
Greaves participated in a fox
hunt while away. The chase end
ed with one grey fox to its credit.
Uncle Sam Stribling has brought
us in the first open boll. It was
grown by Andy Kirkland, a ne
gro tenant on Mr. Stribling’s
place.
Open bolls have also been
brought in by W. D. Gillie. They
were found on J. H. Dses’ plac,
just over the Kemper line.
F. R. Gardner, Union R 4,
brought in two open bolls Mon.
Rev. J. S. Purcell was in town
Sat. Says he cam < home for a
clean shirt. Be has been ho d
ing a meeting at New Uope near
DeKalb. Be left Sat, for Inde
peudence in Scott, where he will
be till Sat. the tbh.
W. R. McDonald, Route 3, suf
fered considerable damage from
the hail storm that struck his
farm Friday one week ago. Hail
seldom injures cotton, but it rid
died his field. Many have called
to inspect the damage.
O. 0 Bottoms has returned
from a profitable trip lo the Stale
A. & M College. He has attend
ed the State Demonstration
Agent’s meeting there. He says
that he made arrangements (here
to have C. T. Ames of Holly
Springs State Experimental Stt
tion, and 0. J Goodell, Assistant
in Animal Husbandry at the
College, to attend the Fair. The
former will make an address and
judge the agricultural exhibits
at the fair, the latter will judge
live stock.
Uncle Bob Barrier brought us
a gourd-squash thirty inches long
Tuesday. He said he wished he
had brought us one of really long
ones. It is the first of the variety
we had seen, and eats well. It is
said that W. D. Gillis introduced
it here. It is easily cultivated,
flourishes right on during dry
weather. It has a smooth skin
and is shaped like an exiggera
ted base ball bat.
E A Holder, Noxapater R. 1,
had prospects of a good corn crop
i month ago. !!' told his son
that they would have to build an.
other crib to hold the coin, but
prospects look less promising af
ter the dry spell, and he says now
that lie can put a partition in the
old crib and use a part of it for
Something else.
R. J. Hearing, Dixon, was in
Monday. He says he used t>
economize pretty closely on
things, but he told Mrs. Dearing
that when lie put off buying
things to wear very long he jus;
had to buy twice as much to re
pleuish. Folks are not buying
much but it is true that they
wearing out stuff, and when they
do have to buy they will buy
more. Folks all over the world
are doing the same thing. When
they begin to buy cotton will go
up.

A crowd of troubles passed him by
As he with courage waited;
He said, "Where do you troubles fly
When you are thus belated?”
“We go,” they say, ‘‘to those who
mope,
Who look on life dejected,
Who weakly say ‘good-hue’ to hope.
We go where we’re expected.”

of a cave In Lincoln county, West Vli>

Are You Up To Date?
[No doubt the following verse was
written for some of our good readers]
Do you load it at the muzzle
When you want a shot or two?
Do you wind It with a watch key
Dike your father used to do?
How’d you like to hop a horse car
Like they did long years ago?
Don’t the auto beat an ox-cart
Well, I rather recken so.
Do yon argue that an hour glass
Beats a Waltham all to smash?
Do you use the same old system
Keeping books and counting cash?
Do you trim a goose quill ueatiy—
When you want the Ink to flow?
Don’t you think there’s been im
provement
In the last decade or jto?
Tell us, are you advertising?
In the same old foolish way
That your gran dad did before you
And persist, ‘‘lt doesn’t pay.”
Think the whole town knows your
address
’Cause It hasn’t changed In years,”
Wouldn’t the pathos of such logic
Drive a little goat to tears?
Just a card Is all you care for?
Hidden, lonesome and unread
Like the sign upon the tombstone
Telling folks that you are dead.
Wake up and take a tonic.
Bunch your hits and make a drive
Run a page and change your copy
Advertise and keep alive.
—Endeavor.

THAT’S OUR IDEA in making
CAMELS—the Quality Cigarette.
Why, just buy Camels and look at the package!
It's the best packing science has devised to keep
■ cigarettes fresh and full flavored for your taste.
Heavy paper outside —secure foil wrapping inside
and the revenue stamp over the end to seal the pack
age and keep it air-tight
' , W
And note this I There’s nothing flashy about the
Camel package. No extra wrappings that do not
; improve the smoke. Not a cent of needless expense
that must come out of the quality of the tobacco.
Camels wonderful and exclusive Quality wins otf
merit alone.
Because, men smoke Camels who want the
® taste and fragrance of the finest tobaccos, expertly
blended. 'Men smoke Camels for Camels smooth,
refreshing mildness and their freedom from ciga-
Camels are made for men who think for them
