Gen. Ross Collins went down in

The politician who goes about
the country attempting to stir up
strife between the races for political
purposes is an enemy to si cietv
and a dangerous firebrand. He is
worse tnan an anarchist and ought
to be in jail, Tnere is not the
least friction in Mississippi be
tween the races and is not likely to
be nnless some of these political
mimtebacks of the state bring it
about.
There is not a white man in Miss

A course in Junior Farm Me

College. August 18-27, has soap
pealed to Director I, W, Hill of
Washington, in charge of Boys’
Club Work in the south, that he
declares in the Weekly .'lews Letter
of the Department of Agriculture
that be is planning to come down
and take the course himself.
| In the coarse of a careful and
I official analysis of the junior me-,
[chanics work, Mr. Hill declare-1 “I
think it.one of the most pra< t cal
'that I have ever seen given 10
[boys. The boys in our territory
need just such a course more than
anything else and it strikes me
that the time has come iu the his
toryofour agriculture that mute
atteutiou must be given eu im
proved farming implements. In
I the south especially, the fanner
has relied too much on hand labor.
If such a course as this is given in
the college, in the near future a
great many more imnruved imple
ments will be used.”

Eggs in 1895 were selling in the

Politicians assert that the next
campaign must have an issue, a

If an issue it warned it is easily

almost without ixcepiion, pinched

and deficits in the family pocket
