It is with sadness that we are bidding adieu to, the good people of Starkville, among whom we have sojourned for more than three years, and who have, by their many acts of kindness and expressed good-will and fellowship, woven around our hearts the teuderests chords, forming ties that would in deed be hard to break. In think ing of these good friends we can not say with the poet, ‘‘What is friendship but a name” etc., for we have found them true and tried, “Weighed in the balances and not found wanting.” We shall sound their praise as through lifes’ jour ney we go, and shall ever wish for them all the happiness that this life can give, and a final home beyond the skies. To one and all we say good-bye. , C. R. Moteb and Family. Pay Your Taxes. According to the tax collector'a books, there is u large number of g >od citizens who have not yei paid their taxes.
