VOL 40. INDUSTRIAL AND TRAINING SCHOOL HOLD PUBLIC CONCERT WED BUSINESS FIRMS OF PUIUDELPHII PH COST OF CONCERI MAKING ADMISSION FREE. The public spirited business firms of Philadelphia contributed SBS for n free band concert at Philadelphia Wednesday evening. It was Tuesday night before It was definitely known that the State Industrial and Train ing School baud would fill Its en gagement here. Cards were mailed out on the rural routes Wednesday morning, but rains during the day kept many people away who would have come, the weather preventing. It was first Intended to hold the con cert in the open, but rain drove the band to the court room. So many folks gathered that the court room would not hold them, so the band repaired to the street, and played under one of the street lights. Sever al automobiles were called Into ser vice >ind with their lights the band managed to complete Its program. But Inadequate lights and position handicapped the boys and they play ed to a disadvantage. At tlie intermission Band Master, Helms, gave a short talk on the work of the State Industrial and Training School. The wonderful work that is being done was well presented. The boy’s band was made up of boys as young as ten years of age, and they played well, especially their marches The business houses making the concert possible were as follows; Philadelphia Insurance Company, Philadelphia Compress, M. F. Sew ard & Son, G. W. Mars, Dr. W. H. Mars, Henderson-Mol pus Lumber Cos., Bank of Philadelphia, Tieweese & Rogers, Turner Hardware Cos., D. Kasdan, Turner’s Drug & Jewelry Cos., Henderson- Moipus Mercantile Cp., City Drug Store, Spivey Ross Hardware Cos.. Grubbs & Son and the Neshoba Democrat. The boys were billeted In the following homes; .1 Bowie, Paul Dees, J. S. Purcell, H. L. Austin, John Cooper, Sam Turner, A. Deweese. M. Mitchell, Ben Howell, Max Hawkins, -Otto Seward, Jim King, .) Stribllng, Hotel Rush and K. J. Drake. A DEMOCRATIC GADFLY. Senator Harrison of Mississippi seems definitely established In the role of chief irritant or gadfly to the overwhelming Republicans majority In the Senate. He Is the Democrat al ways most likely to turn up embar rassing quotations from forgotten Republican policies and acts. Unlike the melodramatic Hoflin of Alabama, who Indulges in tirades, Invariably full of rhetoric and generally barren of thought, Senator Harrison has some concern for arming himself with facts. From the Republican standpoint Senator Harrison, in a purely politi cal sense. Is an unadulterated nulsl unce, Just us the Democrats have found similar gadflys In Republican ranks. The late Congressmen A. P. Gardner was not content one year with verbally exposing certain glar ing Democratic inconsistencies but had blackboards set up iu the House corridor, bearing In large letters quo tations from earlier speeches of Champ Clark which were utterly an tagonistic to the course he was then following, Clark had to walk by those blackboards dally and stand It. Pat Harrison is a clean-cut and forceful-looking young man whose vigorous physique and close cut hair are In contrast to the disappearing southern politician who still wears long, flowing locks that went ont of fashion years earlier In North. Var danian could easily have been for given for wearing his hair tu that way, In curl papers, or lu-nny way he chose, If he had been willing to talk and act in what E. S. Martin of life, suggesting Improved manners to Col Harvey, has happily called a “sanitary” manner, Senator Harrison Is one of the youngest, if not the youngest In the Senate, being still short of Ids 40th birthday. A Senator who at that age and early in his first term—al though he served grevlously tu the House—has demons rated such a fac ulty for confronting the opposition with Its past history, promise to have jv career of considerable useful ness. While Harrison’s tactics must be annoying—he seems at times to en joy almost a complete monopoly on the Democratic' side in the work of drawing historical parallel- his man ners I# debate seem fortunately to be superior to those of that petulant Democratic ralstlt, Reed of Missouri. It Is possible to be offensive. —Spring- field (Mass.) Republican. ACCIDENTALLY SHOT. COMPANION THOUGHT HIM A SQUIRREL Clifton Chuun, uge 25, was serious ly shot. perhaps fatally, at duy break, eight miles south of Philadel phia, this morning, by Will Ladd. The shooting was accidental. The two boys were squirrel bunting, when Ladd a short distance awy, thought he saw a squirrel run up the trunk of a tree he fired. Asa matter of fact Chunn/ who was standing near the tree, hud raised his hand to Ills shoulder to adjust his suspenders. A full charge of squirrel shot was fired Into Chunn who was facing his companion. He was peppered about the face, chest, abdomen and down to Ills knees. Four shot penetrated his lung. He was taken today to the Matty Hersey hospital in Meridian for treatment. Though fully con scious he Is not expected to live. He says that the shooting was acciden tal. $500,000,000 Added To Col ton Value. In the last 00 days the advance in cotton has made the new crop and the carryover worth nearly $500,000- 000 more than they would have been worth at the prices then prevailing. Moreover, the gambling bears wece bent on beating prices still lower, but fortunately they have been caught lu their own trap and are l>elng right gloriously punished. This $500,000,000 means a change difficult to exaggerate. It will won derfully affect the whole atmosphere of the South’s business and agricul tural Interests; It will save many a man and many a business from bnnk ruptey; It will revive trade; It will nourish every industry with new life blood; it will quicken the hopes of the disheartened; It will put new courage Into all the people; It will show the tremendous blunder com mitted when the former Administra tion curtailed credit and killed the War Finance Corporation, and It will prove the power for good of the freer credit and the re-estahllshment of the War Finance Corporation by the present Administration. This advance will also show the wisdom of a reduced cotton acreage, with an Increase In foodstuff produc tion, In this lesson the South should find the road to permanent prosperi ty, greater than It has ever knowu^ If the South will, now and forever, be Independent and rich, let It cut Its cotton acreage heavily for all time to come and Intensify the acreage It does cultivate In order to reduce the cost of production and then concen trate on foodstuffs for Itself and for the country. Then home-made fertili zers will enrich Its soils, grain and grasses aiid cattle and hogs will di versify its agriculture, enlarge the horizon of Its farmers and add euor mouSly to their prosperity. Never was there a better object lesson than the present. If the South had raised 12,000,000 hales of cotton, the price would probably have gone to 6 cents a pound; but with a crop of only about 7,000,000 bales the price has gone to more than three time that figure and many a farmer will now live who at 6 cents would have been hopelessly bankrupt and In poverty for years to come. A crop or 12 000,000 bales with a carry-over of, say 8,000,000 In round figures,-or 20,000,000 bales, at 6 cents would have been worth only SOOO,- 000,000, which would have meant bankruptcy for the entire cotton growing Interests. A 7,000,000 bale crop and a carry-over of 8,000,000 bales at even 18 cents a pound—and It should go higher—would be worth $1,350,000,000. Let the South reverently thunk God for this Increased' wealth, take courage and go forward with new zeal and energy.—Mfg. Record. Patience, Tolerance and Triumph. PHILADELPHIA, MISS. THURSDAY.

Former Governor Will Speak At Rally Sept. 20. f Jackson, Miss., Sept. 11. —The an nouncement by a committee on ar rungements for the Vardanian rally, scheduled to take place here Sept. 29, that Ex-Gov. G. Bilbo would be one of the speakers on the occa sion pas been the subject of much comment, but has been received as a matter of course by those qn the In slde.of state factional politics. Gov. extensively advertised as a candidate against Yard amah on the condition tha t he would be given an open field agplust Varda nian atone, and when Mr. Stevens announced as a candidate Mr. Bilbo declared he was himself out of the race. He said he would have run with Miss Belle Kearney only In the race as the outsider. Speaking of the coming rally, Gov. Bilbo stated to The Commercial Appeal correspond ent that he would be on the speaking programme and would declare for Vardaman. Referring to his recent political maneuvers against Varda inari, lie Said that was merely a fam ily affair and was simply the cross ing of the ambitions of two men of the same political faction. He would not, he said, lend himself to any movement to beat. Vardaman by pos sibly throwing- the seiiaiurshlp to the other faction. There aye some among the politi cal prophets who predict 'that. If Vardaman Is elected, Bilbo go In against Pat Harrison. The Vardamhn rally will Of course be the beginning of a .stated wide, or ganization of the friends of his can didacy, and It seemS to foreshadow an active and aggressive campaign in Ids Interest to be waged In every county of the state, 141 which It Is probably contemplated trained po litical will he put on the stump. There Is ho doubtjthat many of the prominent Vanjiimiin men who broke with him on hw wtir.jpoll cles and vote<l for Harrlrfon are re turning to his standard on the ground that the war Issues are now dead and that, new and live issues have taken their pinch.,, Mr. SteVeiva has already declared fh.t he w4R a whirlwind can vass and will give the people In every comity of the state an opportunity to bear him. kTV < I ,* •_ DeKalb News Vctemn Frank M.
