MISS HAMMOND
IN THE LEAD
DOUBLE VOTE OFFER CONTINUES
ONE WEEK MORE.
Miss Sadie Hammoud, of Maben,
is now at the head of the list, and
if the people from that neighbor
hood continue to support their
candidate, she will surely be
among the winners.
Airs. E. O. Mcllwain, who is
second today has received some re
markable support, during the past
week,
Mrs, ft, A. Cox, who won the
special prize that was donated by-
Mr. J. O. Gunn, last week, is do
ing the kind of work that counts,
and as she is known ns a very
earnest worker, jt stands the oth
ers in hand “to keep PJ’W
open,"
It has been decided to continue
the double-vote offer for another
week, that means that ten single
subscriptions will count the same
as one for ten years, and will en
title the contestant to 5000 votes.
It will not matter whether the sub
scriptions be new or old,-to the
Times or Uncle Bemns Magazine,
neither is it essential that they be
single subscriptions, one siibscqp;
tion fqr two years will count U
same as two singles-
Interest From Afar.
While it Is conceded (hat a con
test should create interest, still we
are some surprised that interest
should be displayed from the far
away state of Connecticut.
One of the contestants came to
the office Monday, having in her
possession, a letter from a “very
dear” friend, who resides in that
state. The gentleman had been
more or less interested in another
contest,.and his letter was full of
encouragement and ideas, which
goes to show that “he” is a keen
observer of events, and knows just
what value to put upon them.
There were “other things” in
the letter, that the didn’t
get tp see. therefore the lpt(er eu.
not be published, then too it would
reveal the lady’s name, and that
wouldn’t do either.
The names of all contestants hav
ing less than 5000 votes, will be
withheld until such time as they
have that number.
Stop and Think—Only Three More
Week* of the Contest.
If you want to know when your
subscription expires, use Phone 10
—or call at the front room of the
Nash Bldg., over the post office.

Oktibbeha Schools Close.
A special from this city to the
Commercial Appeal says 1
The county rural
schools haye just completed a most
successful and harmonious six
inontkfi term. There has been
less friction and more interest in
school matters in all sections of
the county among patrons, pupils
and teachers than ever before in |
the history of the county. Pa
trons have subscribed liberally for i
the improvement of their school
houses, painting and furnishing
them and beautifying tbe grounds-
Teachers have received better saP
aides than ever before, and have
shown their appreciation of same
by an active participation in the
mantbly teachers meetings and by
asiisting the county Superinten
dent in encouraging and building
up the Oktibbeha Farmer Boys
Cokn Club, in addition to their
regular school room work. This
cognty will have a seven months
term next year, but it will necessi
tate a small cut in teacher’s salary.

The Lecture on the Flags of the
Nations, by Mrs. Goodale, at the
Public School building last Fri
day night, was very interesting in
deed and notwithstanding there
were several other entertainments
in town, the ladies of the Episco
pal church, under whose auspices
the lecture was given, netted about
$5,00.
