Let the people look after the interests of the country and keep posted, too, upon the political situation. It is very hard to do the latter, for the professional politician is very certain that he is right and none else but of his like. Political headquar ters ! can't politics be as good in Jackson as in Starkville, Colum bus. West Point Carrollton or any other place *r Every community is possessed of its political leaders and schem ers and they are kept in position simply because no one takes the trouble or care to displace or sup plant them. It will ever be so. So far as Starkville is concerned the Cotton factory now in opera tion here is worth more to the people and the State than all the most gifted and slick politicians within the county or out of it, so far as that is concerned. Many they were rated with the Past Masters of the craft, they would % retire in disgust for the estima tion placed upon them would not give satisfaction and of course would not be appreciated. The candidate as a general rule that has the most gall poured upon him and vituperation heaped upon his head and good character is the better man aspiring for position; but it is always understood that there are exceptions to the general rule. We must confess that we do not understand how men find time without compensation to ride up and down railroads to see what the candidate is doing in the various counties. If they are not paid for their valuable and indispensable services(?) they must have the promise of some thing in the future; they will bo the political adviser of their can didate if elected and the voters will sing their songs of self praise and approach his august majesty elect through the creators. Let every one act the part of a man, think and speak an honest opinion and act accordingly; vote for no man for personal consider ation; decide the proper question is he capable, is he honest and worthy of the position to which he aspires. Surely this is the proper, course and just rule to which there can be no exception. From such there is no fear to appre hend, no harm to befall any per son or interest. Do and act as well as we know how and there will be a comfort in thought and reflection, let its results be ever so imperfect, for we do not hope for entire satisfaction and per fection on this side of life.

Twenty-eight years ago on the 19th day of this month there was not a single store house and in fact very few dwelling houses in what is known as Starkville now; no Court House and no Jail house, and to day we have the most magnificent and imposing struc tures and edifices to be found in East Mississippi; as we before said we had no Court House or jail then, but now we have both to which there are none to com pare. There was very few people here then, but we have now a beautiful city with a population of more than two thousand souls, water works, electric light plant and etc., modern and up to date, and complete in every plan and detail. What better showing can be made for progress and ad vancement than Starkville. Aberdeen Examiner’s Anni versary .

During its long life it has missed but four issues—incident to the total destruction of its plant by tire—and has never published an editorial that was not from the pen of its editors, or advoca ted a measure that its manage ment did not believe to be for the good of city, county and State.— Aberdeen Examiner Major may you liv e to see many more,be possessed of good health, happiness and prosperity. The Examiner is the News’ encyclopedia for State and na tional information digested. You have a right to be proud of your claim and all your brothers rejoice with you. We were glad to see General J.
