Ail Contestants are Active.
The past week has been the busi- j
est one of the contest, thus far. It
seemed ns if all of the contestants
wanted to gain the top of the list
this week. And, as predicted,
there are many surprises in store
for nil.
The special ballot offer has been
made for the coming week, is the
best that, has been made—and
there will not be a better one made.
Ton have our word for it, that
there positively will not be a better
offer.
The contestants may earn ns
many of there special ballots as
they desire, and if they hope to
figure in the distribution of prizes
they had better secure several of
them,
This offer makes it possible for
those who are near the bottom of
the list, to get to the top very rap-
Even those who haven’t been
nominated as yet may enter the
race now, and with a very little ef
fort, find themselves among the
timers at the close of the contest.
(If the special ballot offer were on
this week, anew candidate could
come in this morning and by pay
'ng ?20. on subscription, be at the
head of the list.)' The regular
tchedule for a S2O. payment,
Would give 5,000 votes, then the
two special ballots would count
10,000, the nomination blank would
count 1,000, the total .would be
16,000 votes, making enough to
head the list.
STOP AND THINK, ARE NOT
THESE VALUABLE PRIZES
WORTH TRYING FORf
A few Suggestions to the Friends
of Contestants.
At this time, a few words as to
the method to employ in assisting
the contestants, will not eon s
amiss.
It seems that it would be no
more than fair to your friends, it
von should subscribe to the paper
or if you are already a subscriber,
pay a little in advance, you expect
to pay some time, why not now?
Haven’t vou a mother-father—
brother-or sister, that is interest
ed in the happenings in this vicinity,
w’hy not send the paper to them
for a year?
Many people are heard to say,
“I certainly do hope that
wins the Grand Prize,” yet these
same people have failed to support
their friends, except by verbal as
sistance.
Your friends need your support.
Now is the time to give them
that support.
They want to be winners-
Votes will make tern winners.
All the candidates on the list,
, have a chance to win one of the
three beautiful prizes. There is
no one candidate, who can be over
hauled by a little effort.
Remember, the number of votes,
resulting from the getting of only
a few subscriptions, is going to
make a difference in the way in
STARKVILLE, MISSISSIPPI, MAY 6, 1910
j which the moe will end. There-
j fnrp it behooves the contestants to
leave no stone unturned lost they
they realize at the end, the truth

SAD WORDS OF TONGUE OR
I‘EN, THE SADEST ARE THESE

"Might have beei, ’’that they had

In Memory of Brother W. H. McCann.
Whereas, our beloved brother,
W. H. McCann was a true and
faithful member of Ridgely Lodge
No 23,1. 0.0. F. Starkville, Miss.
He was also a true husband and
father and a useful citizen, having
lived up to the principles of Odd
fellowship as near as it is possible
for one to do. Standing above ex
perience his ponderons character
made itself felt on every occassion,
in whatever corayany or dealings.
His pure manhood was much in
evidence, and no man could men
tion his name but in praise. May
his surviving children emulate his
noble example, and keep his char
acter ever fresh in their memory,
and live secure in Jesus Christ.
Therefore be it resolved:
1. That this lodge has in his
death lost one of its best and most
influentiol members.
2. That we express to his wife
and children our profoundest
sympathy and condole with them
in their grief, and that the memory
of his puie life and the Grace <f
God cheer and comfort the hearts
of the loved ones.
3. That we join with the Long
view community in general in
mourning the loss of one of its
noblest citizens.
4. That a copy of these resolu
tions be spread upon the minutes,
and a copy be furnished the family
of the deceased, and also a copy
be given to the town papers for
publication.
Signed by Committee,
R. B. NEAL,

For the Uncle Remiu Memorial.
An event of the week which
should appeal to the interest and
challenge the public spirit of thou
sands of men, women and children
in Atlanta, is the performance of
the musical extravaganza, ‘' Jappy ”
for the benefit of the Uncle Remus
Memorial.
Three performances are to be
given, Thursday and Friday even
ings and Saturday matinee. A
cast of 3()0 children and adults of
Atlanta, assisted by several pro
fessionals from outside the city,
have been rehearsing for several
weeks, and people privileged to
witness these “try-outs” testify
that the extravaganza will be one
of the most charming and pictur
esque ever seen in Atlanta.
The proceeds for the three per
formances are to be applied to the
purchase of the West End home of

“Uncle Remus” and to the south's
premier litterature.
Plans are already on foot to
make a branch public, library of
part of the home place, while other
portions of the building, notably
the work-rooms of Uncle Remus,
are to be maintained as they were
iiuhis life-time that pilgrains from
the country over may pay homage
to his memory. It is also expected
that a play ground for children
will occupy part of the spacious
premises surrounding the house.
Packed houses should greet
every performance of 1 ‘Jappylnnd,”
not alone for the intrinsic merit
of that production, but on account
of the rarely appealing nature of
its object.—Atlanta Constitution.
