&ood iioads Convention.
At a Greeting of the cit izens of Lowndes county Tuesday the people unanimously declared for good roads and passed a resolu tion that a tax of 3 mills be lev ied on all real and personal property for the purpose. The Board of Supervisors was then in session and it was thought it would make the levy. If so, it will put $15,000 in the treasury for road purposes per annum. It was our pleasure to meet Mrs. G. U. Walker of Jackson ville, Fla., who is on a visit here to her girlhood friend, Mrs. ,T. Adolphe Glenn. This is her first visit back here within 28 or 29 years. Many changes have since taken place and many of her friends and acquaintances have passed away. We feel under obligations to Mr. Glenn for presenting us, for she wiHi to meet as many of her oi l i.c quaintances as possible, and we appreciated Hie privilege and the real pleasure. Mrs. Walker will be remembered as the beau tiful, attractive and charming Delia Russell, who was a fre quent visitor to her friend, Miss Emma * Lampkin, who after wards became the wife of Mr. Paul Harrington, both of whom have long since departed from the scenes of this life. The friends of Mrs. Walker were glad of her visit and the best wishes* of them follow her to her home, in which we most sincerely and cordially unite. May time continually deal gent ly and kindly with her as in the past, and that she will not make it so long in making another visit to the place of so many hours of joy and pleasure as a young lady. Returns Thanks. We return our thanks to those of our new subscribers and promise that we will endeavor to make the News a welcome visit or to your homes weekly. Give us your continued encourage ment and speak a good word for the News. We hope that you will observe improvement from time to time without mak ing mention ourselves. Our cir culation is increasing all the time, but not as rapidly as we would like, but it may be that we can't be satisfied along this line. The more business we do the better paper we can furnish you. If we had all the business that we have promised we would feel very comfortable, we think. A town is judged by its papers, but the papers can’t make the town without the co-operation of its citizens —give the papers business to do. We are sometimes told that we should write up this and that industry. They are established, and if they need further notorie ty or desire it let them help the paper to further their cause. Let us all work hand in hand and we will accomplish good things for everybody. Less poli tics and more work for the com mon ca\*se of town and county and state. The general election of officers are too remote to be considered now. Let us build up on material lines. Mrs. M. E. Spencer arrived here on the noon train yesterday from Birmingham where she has been visiting her son, Mr. William Spencer. Nearly a year ago she went to spend some time with her son, Robert, at; Valiant, Indian Territory. Choctaw Nation. We are glad* to see her in so good health as do her many friends. .•* Young Man’s Suggestion. We had a most pleasant con versation with a young man the other evening in our office. We must confess that we were, somenhat, and most agreeably surprised at the drift ot Ills con versation. One thing brought on another and he advanced I lie suggestion that lie thought a literary or reading room would be the best thing that could be established for young men; that they would not ail take to it at first, but that it would prove a success. Ho advanced many good ideas along this line, and we were impressed most thor oughly that he has been doing some good thinking for himself and forming' < ood associations If there is not another young !n t n v\ I • Ii 1111;v > as In* an d• ■ , v< * leei encouraged and hope that his views will materialize. We are willing to give such aid as we can to promote the cause and led that we are not alone. We would suggest that a special meeting be culled, look ing to an organization for the desired object. Every good citi zen will be in full sympathy, and no doubt, aid in various ways. A refined and cultivated citi zenship is a great blessing. Too much zeal cannot be manifiestod in such a course. For the Country. The country schools of Oktib beha will have 8 months from now on. This shows progress along educational lines. It will be one of the best advertise ments that can be given to the county. People wish to settle in a country where school ad vantages are to be had. Pat rons of the schools will take more interest in public roads now than before; they will have some good reasons to contend for good roads at that season of the year that they are most needed. -Mr. John Lewis has purchased the home of Mr. Joe L.
