OUR COUNTY SCHOOLS
Craig Spriags Consolidated School
Prof. William F. Monday was
iu attendance at the Countv Teach
ers Meeting which was held here
last .Saturday. Prof. Mundav is
Principal of the New Consolidated
School at Craig Springs A splen
did school spirit prevails in that
community, and the people of tha'
district are contemplating building
a modern school house in the near
future, which is very badly needed
as the school has out grown the
facilities. A modern school
building in that community, will
make Craig .Springs one of the
most np-to date, aod progressive
rural committees in that county.
The enrollemeut this year has
gone considerably over l!H) mark,
which shows that (ho people oi
that community are very much hr
terested iu better school advantages
for their children. They realize
the value of having high school
advantages at home, so that their
children raa> he kept at home at
least until they have completed the
high school course.
Prof Mundav has for his help
er- in the school, Mbs Carrie San
ders ot Bradley as primary teacher,
and (Miss Laura Haines if Louis
ville as intermediate teacher. These
young ladies ate doing splendid
work in their departments.
The trustees of the school are
W. J Mcllvaney, U. ,J. Spier and
Luther Muiphv. A good board of
trustees of business men always
ready to look after the interest of
the school is what makes a school
worth while, and that is what they
have at Craig Springs.
On account of increased attend
ance, another transporation wagon
has been added wuich now makes
tour wagons transporting children
to the school. These wagons are
being iluvon by responsible men,
who are W. J, Mellvanev, John

BEE DISEASES DECREASING,
Eradication Bj Plant Foard Progresses
Very rapid progress in eradicate
ing the serious disaasea of bees.
European and American Punt brood
from Mississippi is shown in a re
port just received bv the State
Plant Board from J. L. E. Lauder
dale, Assistant Entomologist in
charge of the work.
Acvjrdiug to the report, these
diseases are found only in Bolivar,
Coahoma Panola, Quitman, Shark
ey, Snr.fl iwer, Tallahatchie, Tuni
ca, Washington, and Yazoo cirtin •
ties, and have caused very serious
leases to the beekeepers in these
counties. As an example, it in
stated that out- apiary in Wc.sh'iig
ton Caunty suffered a loss of ap
proximately $5,000 during 1920
from Atnetiean Foulhrood alone,
The eradication work began in
•Inn, 1021. and during the season
325 separate apiaries containing!
li4'i4 colonies war- inspected. .Most
of these were reinspeot and making a
total of 00.51 colonies inspected
during Ilia year, At the first in
spection 570 colonies were found
inflected with European Foul •
brood, By the last inspection,
this number had dropped to 211. a
decrease of per cent. Still bel
ief results were obtained with
American Foulbroud, (he number
of inflected colonies falling from
353 at the first inspection to 53
colonies at the final inspection, h
■'education of 85 per cent in the
Such progress the first year of
the work is especially gratifying
and since the beekeepers will mors
thoroughly understand the aims of
the Plant. Board and will be more
familiar with the details of eradi
cation during the coming year, it
is expected that equal or even
greater progress will be achieved in

as poasible, once should be men

There are several exceptions to
this rule, The peddler with a

should talk price first au4 nlwars
The trader who has a small shop
in a poor neighborhood should talk
price. He is not expected to have
good merchandise. Uw apples are
specked aud his bacon is salty and
his butter is rancid—it has to be,
or his prices would be too high.
In every lown there are several
cheap shops. But the

In general it is best to advertise

Col. Camp’s Address on Kn Kim Klao.
OoJ. J. T. Camp delivered his lecture
on Klu Klux Klan at the Mayoi’s Hall
last night to as many as could crowd In
the small space afforded by the hall.
The speaker was Introduced In a very
appropriate speech by Hon. John D.
Greene of the Starkville bar
The speech wae booked for the Court
house but Judge Carroll Issued orders
prohibiting the Colonel from deliveing

He was bitter against the Jews -and
Catholics and seemed to regard them as
a grave menace to American institutions
and the the Government. A
He also intimated strongly that nagdl
domination was threatening the country!
■and when be brought bis oratorical
powers to bear oa this subject, he,
seemingly touched a responsive chord
in the hearts of his hearers.
At the close of bis speech he asked ati
who endorsed the methods and purposes
of the Clan to sign cards that had been
furnished them and later on a represen
tative would call upon them and effect
an organization of the Clan in Oktibbe

signed the cards.
Col Camp is an orator of m mean
ability. His eloquence and word pain
