Those who are looking for opportunities are
rarely looking for work.
The mills of the gods grind slowly but they
never stop for repairs.
This is the kind of weather for action and
vigorous garden work. You can go fishing later.

By adopting prohibition during the remainder
of the war the British government proposes to
make its soldiers tight fast or quit.
The bachelor is to be congratulated at this sea

King Albert of Belgium says, “I am not a
hero, —the heroes are found in the trenches.”
King Albert was once a reporter on a daily paper
out on the Pacific Coast, and consequently he lias
no false ideas about heroes.
Hon, Marion VV. Riley, candidate for Gover

nesday, Notwitestanding the farmers were all
busy planting, a crowd of about 100 voteies turned
out to hear him and he made a good impression,
gaining several strong followers. At night he
spoke at Mathiston, .Webster County, to a good
house. 80 far, Mr. Riley has failed to induce any
of his opponents to join him in debate-
From all indications there is going to by
plenty to eat raised in Oktibbeha county this year.
A representative k of the Times has taken the
.trouble to interview several farmers from various
,-sectiohs of the oouuly, and invariably they tell
-that iu their locality their neighbors are making
.an extra effort to raise large crops of sweet po
tatoes, more corn than heretofore, and planting
peas and Irish potatoes for market aid have de

hay.e .only had a family cow are now engaging in

Butter. The Agricultural High School at Long

.the facilities afforded by Hie parcel post and better
country roads has made this possible. At any

THE ART OF PLEASING
The art of gaining people’s confidence ipiickly
and retaining it is of priceless value to any man
wh° would get on in the world. Few possess it.
Most of us throw barriers in its way. By die
agreeable manners, lack of tact, or an unplensiug
personality, we freguently antagonize and repel
those whom we are anxious to win over.
Many people have to work hard to overcome the
prejudice created by their first impressions, while
a few without any apparent effort charm everyone
It is not the teacher who knows most, for in
stance, who is successful beyond others; but it is
the one who pleases and iuterests by means of her
tact and winning ways.
Neither is it always the salesman who knows
his business from A to Z who is most valuable to
his employer, but the one who has learned the art
Well pleased is half persuaded We are so
•constituted that we are influenced by what pleases
.us, even sometimes agaiust our judgment-
While the art of winning people’s favor and
■confidence is in many instances a natural gift, like

required by earnestly seeking it,

JUST A CASE OF “WHY.”
Why do yon continue to reside in this com
Why do you want to see the community
Why do you want to see some of Europe’s
gold flow into the pockets of your neighbors, or
into your own?
Why do you want to see bumper crops?
Why do you want to see local industries hnm
Why do you want to see everybody working,
and earning money?
Why do you want to see new blood come in,
new works go up, new mouths to feed, and plenty
of money for the feeding?
Why do you want to see the schools con
tinued. the churches supported, and public im
provements inaugurated from year to year?
Why do you want to see a thriving, growing,
prosperous, happy community, anyway?
Why do you want to see all of these things?
Isn’t it, us a matter of fact, because they con
tribute to Your Own Prosperity•
And if that is true, just be honest with your
self and ask yourself a few more “whys.”
Why don't you keep your money at home ?
Why do you send away for goods when you
know you can buy them just as economically at
Why do you scud your money away for the
enrichment of outsiders when you know it con
tributes just that much toward the impoverish
ment of your own town, of your own community,
Why (it l you send your money to some city
millionaire, where it goes to swell his enormous
bank account, or to buy a thousand dollar coat for
his wife, or anew affinity for himself/
Why do you send your money away and de
prive our local churches and other worthy insti
tutions of support, when you know at least a por
tion of that money goes to swell the rampant vice
Of a big city f
Why do you seek (te fhl'Pffi® the prosperity of
your own home by sending yogr u%rs parued dol
lars away to strangers who consider you but
other sucker hooked?"
Why decrease the circulation of money at
home, and thereby depreciate the value of your
own prosperity f
Why write your name in history as a knocker,
a killer, a destroyer, as a local blight?
Why kick yourself down hill, anyway?
The blindest man on earth is the fellow who
robs himself, who destroys his own community,
who seeks to cover our fair countryside with the
cobwebs of commercial stagnation.
How is your sight, brother?
AN IMPORTANT GATHERING.
The “Grown in Mississippit’ Association
which holds its lirst annual convention ill (lack
son on June 10th and 11th is a gathering of groat
importance and every man who is interested ip
Mississippi farming, industrial, or commercial re
sources should attend it possible. There seems to
be a misapprehension about this convention, ft
is not a convention of “authorized delegates.”
As an inducement to get a good attendance the
mayor of every city, town and village was asked to
appoint ten or more delegates. Every supervisor
in the Htatc was likewise asked to delegate as
many of bis progressive constituents as he saw fit,
to be on hand and join in the proceedings. Every
business organization has been InviUd; ju face it
is the desire of Commissioner Elakeslee, who upp
ceived and originated this movement to gather to
gether, the producer, the consumer, aud the buyer
of farm products in Misaissippi aud every oue
else interested, lu a personal letter from the
commissioner to the editor of the Times, he en
closed a circular from which we make the follwing
"The first annual convention of the “Grown
in Mississippi” association will be held at Jackson
on the dates above named. The arrangements and
entertainment will be under the supervision of the
Young Men’s Business Club, of Jackson, anew
organization of red-blooded young fellows who
are anxious to do something for their home city
and the Stale as well. Visitors will find the latch
string on the outside, and while the meeting will
be one for work, there will be sufficient of a good
time for any and all.
All officials are urged to be on hand and a
broad invitation is extended every one who is in-,
terested in the future welfate of the State of Mis
sissippi and the happiness and prosperity of her
people to come. It must be the largest attended
and most important meeting held iu Mississippi
during the year 1913.
Cun you see all the fan in your neighbor,
And enjoy on yourself a good joke;
Cau you smile when the money is plenty,
And still laugh when you really ara broke!
Can you summon up courage for striving
And give aid to your friends if they fall;
I Are you willing to do all your darudest
To accomplish and never to stall!
Can you see all the good that’s in others.
And be conscious of motes in your eye;
Are you ready to make the endeavor
To help truth and stamp out the lief
If you are, then old boy, you’re some punkin’,
So get busy and do all you cau;
And your conscience will truly applaud you,
l*’or you’ll know in your heart you’re a man.

A South Carolina farmer had a large number
of hogs which were ready to kill. The weather
was so warm that killing was out of the question.
He went to his telephone, called a dealer in
Columbia over Long Distance and sold his hogs
at a good price. He then called the local freight
office and arranged for shipment.
The telephone is now a necessity on the farm.
You can have one on your farm at small cost.
See the nearest Bell Telephone Manager or
send a postal for our tree booklet.
