VOLUMN IV. The Gambler's Dream. By Maud Gii.lis. I dreamed of my mother last night And the old home o’er the hill; h here bloomed the roses rare and bright, In the garden coo! and still. Over the meadows far and wide, Was a drift of clover pink; The hllies nodded side by side. Upon the river's brink, I saw the orchard where I played, In ray happy childhood hours; The hills, where once I strayed. ■ And gathered the wildwood flowers. I saw the dusky bats awing, In the azure vault, the stars shown out; I heard the call of a night bird ring. And a husky voice of a laborer shout. As I sit here tonight, it comes again. And the clink of the gold grows dim And I soothe the lire of my burning brain, With the touch of the goblet's brim. NOTICE. To the farmers and Business bden of Oktibbeha County.

The Oktibbeha County Teach ers’ Association will meet in Starkville, February 24, at 10 o’clock, A. M. By a special agreement with the President ot the Cotton Growers’ Association, Prof. Boyd will address the Teachers and Colton Growers’ Association at one o’clock on that date. Let each Teacher bring as many patrons a$ he or she cap. J. M. Kelly, Pres. S. J. Wallace. Supt. A CANADATE. Hon. E. S. Candler, Jr. will be a candidate for re-election to the sixtieth Congress and will at no distant dale announce. We are of the oppinion that he will not have an opponent. The Ist, District never had a more active or efficient representative than in the person of Hon. E. S. Candler, Jr. Mr. Rasba Cannon was here Wednesday. We have been knowing Rasha all his life and his kindred all our life, but he corrected us on his name. We jumped al the conclusion lhal his name was Horatio and that they called him Rash, for short. He not unlike other people, prefers his own proper name, in J*he language of Townsend of the Choctaw Plaindealer, he left with % us, as a mento of his good will a “Silver Wheel”. We appreciate our subscribers. Mr. Cannon began with the Nows and always pays in advance. We make the correction and it is unnecessary to say, Mr. Cannon, we thank you; that is always understood as the preposition “to”. The newspapers of East Miss issippi are boom mg Hun. Wiley N. Nash, of Starkville, for the office of Lieutenant Governor. Mr. Nash is a lawyer of ability and a citizen whom the people of Mississippi should delight to honor. He would make a strong candidate. —Greenwood Enter prise. * The erudite editor, Edgar Har ris, aply places Hon. Wiley N. Nash before the people who is a candidate for the position, for Nash is a man of the people and for the people. No Purer man resides within the common wealth than Hon. Wiley N. Nash, whom we have known intirniatelv for thirty years as a citizen, lawyer and in different official relation ship. He would make an ideal Governor so far as matters are concerned. We are pleased to see that in all sections of the State that Hon. Wiley N. Nash is endorsed. Messers. C. B. and W. W. Miller was here last Saturday looking altar business. Charlie is a Critical reader of the News, and was very much impressed with the history of Coal Oil Johnnie, the Spend thrift in our last issue. We like Charlie, wish that we had had something of the kind many years ago, but yet we can profit by it. For good reading subscribe for the News. STARKVILLE, MISS., FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 16, 1906. Our Endorsement of Nash. The Record is glad to see the favorable comments of the State press regarding the probable candidacy of our honored citizen, Attorney General Wiley N. Nash for lieutenant governorship. We have known him all our lives, and recognize in him the acme of true and noble manhood, and are proud to utter our hearti est endorsement of the sugges tion that he is the man who would best serve Mississippi. —The Oktibbeha Record. Capt. Isaac Winston was here Wednesday strictly on business. The Capt. complimented us by saying that the News would measure up to any weekly within the State. He takes several and we really felt complimented com ing from one so capable to judge. Asa sincerity of his opinion he gave us a wheel which glitter ed like a dew drop in the first rays of the rising sun in Spring time. Continue friends, andglad en our hearts and others. Read this to Your Boy. Judge Wofford, Kansas City, in a recent address to boys, gave advice which, if heeded, would revolutionize the country. If should be read to every boy in the United States: “I have been t _ on the bench fourteen during that time of boys have been brought before mo, but not one of them was a constant attendant at church or Sunday school or obedient to his father or mother. I have inquir ed of many boys what caused them to get into trouble and have found that in most instances, stay ing away Iron home and school, playing pool, hanging around sa oous and cigarette smoking are responsible. Start right, boys. To be anybody, to accomplish anything for yourself or the com inunity you cannot be idle. Don't drink —liquor destroyes the body and nmid. Don't swear —gentle- men do not. It is low and vulgar. Don’t read trashy literature. It leads to the devil. Don’t hang around saloons. Good men are not made that Wav. When* ever you see a man lying around a saloon the devil is after him and will get him sooner or later. Benjamin Franklin would never have accomplished anything if he had been guilty of these practices. Be honest above all things. Poor boys make the best future citizens. To make a good man you must be a good boy. So start right. The graveyard is fill ed with those who started wrong* The world is growing better. The teachings of Christ are be gining to be felt. Let me impress upon you the only road to success is by living aright life. Be hon est, industrious and frugal. It is not necessary to be sanctimonious to wear a long face. Keep laughing. Have a good time as you go through life, but let it be the right sort of good time. If we were all angels the world would not be fit to live in.” Ex. The Grand Masonic Lodge will meet at Brookbaven next week. Mr. W. W. Scales, Jr, W. M. will represent Albeit Lodge No. 89. of this place, at that grand body. Opinion of Judge Niles. The full text of the decision of Judge Niles of the Federal Court in the famous C. O. D. liquor in junctions to all the wholesale liquor dealers appearing as com plainants, and upholds their right to ship liquor into the State. In part, Judge Niles says; “So long as whisky is recogni zed as an article of commerce, and is in the hands of the express company, to be delivered by it on orders made in good faith, and believed by the shippers to be such order, the liquors arq not subject to seizure by the State of ficers. Under the commerce clause of the constitution intox icating liquors shipped from one State into another on con tract is interstate cjmmerce and can not be controlled by State laws,” We dont presume that the de cision was a supprise to any one as the law seemed clear. There will be many devices suggested to aid prohibition, but the thing is for the people to get right and quit giving patroage. we have too many laws already and too few enforced. Trouble in Matrimoy. A Chicago attorney wants a law against marriage except be tween persons who hold health certificates. If the tinkerers keep up they will make marriage as formal and difficuft as match ing silk from a sample at a bar gain counter. It is pretty well demonstrated to our mind ihat County Supren tendent of education, Mr. S J. Wallace made no mistake in re commending to the trustees of Chestnut Grove School. Prof. Bundle Allen. He came well re commended and to demonstrate that he is well appreciated m my of his old friends and fellow-citi zens of Indiana have purchased homes in that vicinity and others will soon follow. Immigration from lllinoise and Indiana is the right- kind. Prof, invite others of your friends and acquaintances. When a man is chosen as a re presentative of his county in the legislature, this choice is suppos ed to express the wisdom of a majorityof the voters of the coun ty. It also carries with the as sumption that he has the ability, the integrity and the moral cour age to do so, fearles ly and con scientiously. Some members construe it otherwise, or have too little confidence in themselves or too little moral courage; allot which, jointly or severally is to be deplored.—Kosciusko Herald. Lost or Stolen.

The New Dorado Now Open to the Public. The long expected, much talk ed of, opening of the White Riv er Country, between Carthage, Mo., and Newport, Ark., is now an ;accomplished fact; through trains in each direction on the new White River Line having been inaugurated on January 21. In connection with the Tide Water-Line along the Mississippi River to the Gulf, this marks the completion of anew route be tween the Northwest and the Southeast, of great and growing importance. The commercial in vasion by the railway of moun tain fastnesses in the White Riv- Country. in Mossouri and Arkan sas, and of the lowland river dis trict of Southeastern and Louisiana lias not appeared feasible until the present day. With the accomplished fact of a through line, a variety of land scape and social conditions of the most diverse character is brought to view. The products of the mine (coal, zinc, lead, mangnese, onyx and building stones—inex haustible quarries of fine marble of almost every known variety), of the forest(oak, pine, walnut, ash, cypress and cedar lumber,) farms in the valleys (cotton, and the various temperate zone grains and grasses,) and the orchards of the uplands (peaches, apples, pears, berries and the fruit of the vine.) with the sports of the chase, and of angling in lake and stream, are now offered to the enterprising who m*y plan a shorter or a longer abude in this new country.
