The State of Mississipi, Oktib
beha County. To his excellency, JAS. K. VARDAMAN. Governor of the State of Mississippi: We, the underigned citizens of the aforesaid County and State, do earnestly petition your Ex. cellency for the pardon of one John McAdams, who was sen tenced at the May, 1901 term of Circuit Court of said county, to to serve a term of ten (10) years in the Penitentiary, under con viction of manslaughter; and we would offer as reasons for this pardon the fact that previous to the time of the trouble out of which grew his conviction, the said McAdams was a quiet, polite and peaceable negro and a hard worker. We believe that the punishment that he has already suffered is sufficient and ample to meet the ends of justice. His record as a convict is clean, he having served out four and one half years of his sentence with out giving any trouble to the officers in charge of him. His mother, who has a record far a hove the average negro for hon esty and faithfulness, is getting old and is badly in need of the help of this son, who was her main dependence before the time of his trouble, and we believe that if he is pardoned he will make an exemplary negro. Respectfully and earnestly submitted. Y. A. Pearson and one hun dred others. 4 ___________ Seethe News; Read the news; Subscribe for the News, Continue to take the News; Pay your subscription to the News.

Through the generous hospitality of our guests, a most beautiful dinner was served to all present. And in departing after a season of very pleasant social fellowship, they left with us many valuable articles for the house as. tokens of their personal regard. For these gitts in themselves we feel very grateful indeed, and also greatly appreciate them for the kindly feeling and spirit of good fellowship they express. In re turn, it is our earnest desire and prayer that we may be able to render to them a still longer and better service than in the past, and that their lives may be en riched bountifully with all spirit ual blessings, R. E. and M, H. Wilkin. Mr. E. E. Card ofTremont, Q. is visiting his brother, Mr, D. P. Card, this week. “Fewer Gallons; Wears Longer.” The secret is out and Stark ville can go on living just as if the riddle had never been asked. No it can’t, either. Starkville is not going to be what it was be fore. Its houses are going to be brighter; its people a little more prosperous-—they are going to have some of their money left to buy other tilings with. The answer to the riddle is this: you can paint a building with fewer gallons of Devoe Lead and Zi nlc paint than with mixed paints, and it will wear several times as long as a building painted with lead and oil mixed by hand. There’s proof ahoundant of it all over the United States. There will soon be proof abundant of it in Stark ville. What will people do with the rest of their money. In a. country grave yard not far from Kosciusko upon a tree on the center of ihe city of the dead is a placard telling of the wonderful virtues of a medicine for Hie pro longation of life the alleviation of pain* In fact it claimed to cure all diseases the human race is heir to. It warns the visitors against the fate of their loved ones and pro mises an avenue of escape. A st range place to advertise, but the imprssion made a lasting one inasmuch as no other advertise ment is to bo seen in the immed iate vicinity.—Kosciusko Herald.

Rainey. By H. P. Dodson A noble man has passed away, Across the boistrous river, To live in an eternal day For ever and forever. For many years, he cried aloud, With earnest voice of warning To both, the humble and the proud, At eventide and morning. We miss his social, winning ways, There we ever want to meet him, Yes, in that blessed, “by and by” Among the saints in Glory; We’ll meet the Savior in the sky, And tell the pleasing story. Time flies away ’twill not be long. Till on the blissful shore; You’ll join the universal song, And live forever. Everybody should subscribe for the Commoner, W. J. Bryan’s paper.
