A Kentucky editor says be enjoys watching a citizen read a fmft ot himself in the paper. “The narrow minded man reads it over seven or eight times and fcbcu goes around and begs all the copies he can. The kind hearted one goes home and reads it to his wife and then goo”: around to the office and pays what, he owes. The successful business man, who advertises regularly aud makes money by it immediately starts out to find the editor, and then the two walk silently down the street and the businessman takes sugar in his’n and both eat a clove or two and life is sweeter, and pease settles clown on thief lives for a moment Such as th« experience of a mus tard seed that falls on different ground.” O-Wt » ■■ '■ i" Tin Breath of Life.

I never took a paper that did not pay me more than I paid for it. Onetime an old friend oi piine smarted a paper down South and sent a copy to me and I sub scribed just to encourage him and after -awhile it published an order to sell a lot at pualic auc tion. So I inquired about the lot and told a Lriend to run it up to $50. lie bid oft the lot at §38 and i sold it in less than a month for §1.00, so it made §62 clear by tak pig the paper. My father told pie that when he was a young man he saw a noticeiu the paper that a school teacher was wanted away off in a distant country aud he got the situation and a little girl was sent to him, and after a while she grew up sweet aud beautiful and he married her.

Mr. Sanford Graham, young, active, capable, progressive ami public spirited, heads the pro cession in the announcement col umn—takes a front scat in the band wagon and heralds his name to the voters as a candidate tor a seat in the lower house of the next general assembly. He deserves promotion for the prompt manner in which he pre sents himself lor civic honors, lie ought to reach lhe goal of his ambition iu this race because be has thrown his banner to the breeze and thus asks your kind consideration of his claims while others are “beating about the bush” in a sort of “still hunt” to ascertian their strength. Mr. Graham is always plain, I rank and opeu in his methods, and in the canvass that he has now inaugurated he not only wants but is anxious that the people should thoroughly under stand his position on all matters of legislation that may aftcct their wellfare. Hoke Smith, of Georgia, enter ed the canvas for gubernatorial honors sonic fourteen months be fore the primary and was laugh ed and sneered at for being pre mature; but the other day there was a Hoke Smith cyclone in the empire state of the South, and his opponents were left in the wreck with no moans of identifi cation, except their drawn faces had the “dry grins” and they were croaking too late, too late, t o o 1 a-t e. You will never catch Mr. Gra ham in that sort of a box, for he is promptitude itself,and if elect ed will look after your every in terest with the greatest fidelity and care. His watchwords arc, t.-i(1-ilnnr>p iirnflr-npo niif] nnnnrtn. ' A A A nit.y. lie is thoroughly conversant with every phase of legislation, having been asociated with the legislature lor a period of eight years. The intelligent people of Amite county, when deeply in tercsted in local bill, selected Mr. Graham to present the merits of the measure to a committee of our last general assembly. This is proof positive of the trust and confidence those people had in his good senco and sound judg ment and is a strong endorse ment of his personal ability and qualifications to fill the important office to whicn he aspires. In the full flush of young man hood (26 years) he is well equip ped morally, socially, education ally and religiously to fill any of tice to which our people may pro mote him. He dolts his hat to the suffra gans and making his profoundest bow, solicits your kind words, your best wishes and your cordi al support in his race for repre sentativo from Kemper county— Southern Star. Mr. Graham though from in a diferent portion of the county, is very closely identified with this community, for it was in our lit tle city that he made first his start in life. On being offered the janitorship in the High School here in ’98, he jumped at the offer as it was his only op portunity. Leaving this school with first honors, he entered College in Jackson, where he graduated in ’05. and was chosen by the faculty to represent the Celleg in an inter collegiate ora torical contest at Gulfport. lie is now Superintendent ol one of the best High Schools in South Mississippi. He has been spending his vacations trying to implore the educational states ot Kemper County knowing as he does, that Democracy and public education go hand in hand and knowing that the stability effic iency and prosperity ot any gov ernment that is, “of the people, by the people, and lor the peo ple” depends upon the intelli gence of its citizenship. He has never tailed to raise his voice iu tavor of the course of tree public education. , The past week has been more favorable to a good yield ot cot ton than heretofore though the plant continues to 6hed and there is no question as to the crop be ing much less than was at first anticipated. Excessive heat has retarded the.picking somewhat in many places. Only in a few places have the rains been sut ficient to do uuy damage or re tard the gathering.

Imagination plays an import ant part in the coloring of a life. ‘Dou’t let your imagination run away with you’ is a sentence that has chilled, if not checked, most of us. But imagination is really the master-builder ol one,s most satisfactory life structures, and when it ‘runs away’ with one, becomes a dynamo that moves seemingly immovable things. What does imagination mean? Imaging: building a thought pattern, a mental model, an ideal. ‘Nothing great was ever achieved without enthusiasm,’ declares Emerson. Imagination is en thusiasm’s vital principle, its in ward life, its vitalizing fire. Millions of careers have proved the truth that it is the poised, the patterned, the always-aspir ing life, the life of the home, the mannfactory, the store, the school, the studio, all places whore the demands for food, raiment, spiritual sustenance and nourishment for the finer senses are met, that it is most thor oughly and adequately colored. All color is caused by viberation. The higher and stronger the viberation the deeper aud more beautiful the color. When heart and braiu aud body all vibrato with high resolves and constant upward reach and endeavor, the life will glow and shine and attract to itself all that makes for health, happiness and holi ness.—Lida A- Churchill in the October Delineator.
