A. Stinson, who has distinguished herself as the trick aviations of the world, has telephoned the Un ited States States government from Japan, that in event of war with Germany, she will tender her services in the defense of this country.—Aberdeen Weekly. John Sharp Williams’ bill for the appointment of a Federal Judge for the Southern district of Mississippi, was passed by the Senate Monday. There is a little doubt but what it will be' passed by the House. For some years Judge Niles, in holding court in the two districts, has had more to do than should bo imposed upon one ofllcial, and mainly for this reason, the appointment of an ad ditional Federal Judge is sought. The Yazoo Sentinel has hosited the motto ' Printed in Mississip pi at its mast head and writes a very sensible editorial on the ques tion of newspapers practicing what they preach, and not iTave then papers, or the greater part, print by tho Syndicate which furnishes newsppers with street) ped pages. It took the publisher of the Times a quarter of a century to learn that the only successful way to tun a country newspaper was to print it all at home and control your owu advertising space, even it you had to reduce it to tho size of .a tour page pamphet, and lu maintain a strictly cash hindrance subscription list, though it reduces the circulation to oue-tourth. ‘‘The merchant who uses station ery decorated with gargling oil, axle grease, or other cheap adver tising matter, is to the home print er what the mail order house is to the home merchant.—Madison County herald. The above is certainly true) but can you blame them for using that kind of stationery when it is given to them? Merchants and others who use it tell ns that it is given to them free gratis for nothing) but sometimes we opine that the wholesaler or jobber "get’s his u’’ in the price charged for the bill of goods bought at the time the gift is made, —Koscuisko Herald. A BUSINE'S MAN FOR GOVERNOR Ihe Htai.fi press ami the rank ami file of the MissDsilipi voters are demanding a business man for governor for the next term, an I several prominent mui in business have been menti tied. There is one man in this state who has never engaged in politics, who is rated by the standard commercial agencies of ilm romitry as "the best business man in the South.” lie is not only a business, man, but is progressive and has used his means freely to promote agricul ture and de'eh p* industries in this stale, and has done this, not from a selfish standpoint, but from purely patriotic motives. The Times believes Unit if he were elected governor, he would remedy Mississippi’s financial troubles and give the Stale a sound business administration. Wo have never heard his name mentioned in con nection with the gubernatorial race. We are satisfied that the idea of being governor, or holding any other office, has ever entered his mind. To accept Ihe governorship would be a financial sacrifice for him and he, us far as we know, has never entertained political ambitions. His chief ambition has been to devc op .Mississippi, and he has freely furnished money to do this when it was of no pos sible financial benefit to him. He is a man of extraordinary executive ability, and should the people call upon him, it would be a clear case of the "cilice seeking the man,” Asa business governor, the Times can conoieye of no better qualified man than J. T. Thomas, president of the Grenada bank. THF. DOLLAR. * Just a dollar on a mission sen), makes a lot of people glad each time the coin is spent. You pay it to the batcher for the m at to g\e yon gtienglli; ho (ales if to the grocer from whom it goes nt length, some pretty luce or cloth his better half to buy, or help to get her summer hat to make her rival sigh. The day goods man sent on the coin to pay the market bill, and through the coin is often spent it stays a dollar still, and every time ‘tis spent at home, some net of good is done; in boom ing lodal industries it’s bound lo make them run. But if you take the shining coin and break the local chain, the chances are that from afar ‘twrtl not return again. If once it pusses out of town the butcher and baker, the grocer and the dry goods man, the furniture man and carpenter, the wagon man and blacksmith, the shoeman and the printer, every one will lose lie chance to touch the coin ore the setting of the sun. Just keep the little coin at home, just keep it moving well, and everylime it changes hands somebody’s goods ‘twill sell. That single little dol lar has thus a wondrous power to make somebody happy a dozen times an hour. It fays the bill and wards oft' ill and ne’er its power relaxes, to soothe the doctor, buy the coalaudpuy for clothes and taxes.—Ex. A Kansas editor is about as hard to get ahead of as a Kansas cyclone. 0. W. Weaver, of the Sedwick Pautagraph, recently raised the price of his paper from SI.OO to $1 50 a year and in reply ing to some complaint heard about the change, says! “You may be of the opinion that the paper isn’t worth $1.50. Neither is a gallon of gasoline worth 21 cents, nor 10 pounds of sugar worth SI,OO, nor a pound of veal worth 30 cents, nor a bushel of corn worth 80 cents, but these are the prices the ptople are paying. Potatoes are retailed at $2.00 per bushel and ‘sow blosom’ at 23 ceuts a pound. 8c don’t get mad at us.
