Civic Associaiion Department.
Edited by Publicity Committee. “If eyes were made for seeing. Then Beauty is it’s own excuse for being.” Remember the next meeting, at the Court House, Friday night Dec, 28th. at seven o'clock. The public invited to attend, whether members or not. Civic Improvement. “It is a great and fearsome thing to hold power over an en tire city—power for good, or evil —for beauty, sanitation and pleasant living—or for unsight liness, disease and discomfort. Strange, so few city fathers seem to think of that, and strang er still that so many cities jog a long, allowing themselves to be saddled with extra taxes, cheer fully tuning themselves to the song of “pay, pay, pay,” yet finding in return only thg same old slipshod management, which results in bad lights, worse streets and the worst sanitation, not to mention rampant vice and law lax keeping. Some Ameri can cities are awaking, rubbing their dusty, grimy eyes and be ginnihg to look about, seeing how foreign municipalities have made themselves of such world charm, that travelers go there to spend freely their tinkling sheckles from year to year.

The Sand Creek School was opened again Wednesday after being closed for several days owing to Miss Bevill’s illness, Mr. W. M. Dadds has purchas ad the mercantile establishment of Miss E. Hunt. We regret to lose Miss Hunt from the mer chant’s ranks. Dr. Luther Dawkins and Miss Celia Alexander were married at the home of Mr. Jas. Alexander the start, and Chicago, which would rectify old wrongs, are sending abroad for experts to aid them in accomplishing, as near as can be, civic perfection. Mayor Schmitz, of San Francis co, is already in London, and means to visit other distinctive European cities to gather all the best points of municipal admin istration, in order that the new city shall be one of the finest and most beautiful in the world. In Chicago, the Merchants' Club, are developing plans whereby archinecture, public places, driveways and the city’s water front shall grow into lines of beauty, at the same time hold ing a wise hand on the gauge of public expenditure for public good. Every little Southern town lacking such guidance, and the funds ot these great cities would do well to engage the attention of its woman’s clubs in some of these matters, at least. It may be the men have not time to think about the pleasing look of trees, refreshing strips of grass, the uniformity of sidewalk pav ing, or the police banishment of all papers, tin cans, old shoes, bottles, ancient garbage and such impediments, from city gutters. Surely there are always enough vagrants everywhere to be put tu this civic house cleaning.” Sunday afternoon at three o’clock. Both are well known young people of this community. We wish for them a prosperous voyage across Life’s sea. We heartily second Governor Vardanian's suggeston of Hon. Walter Clark, of Coahoma coun ty, for president of the Southern Colton Association.

He is the only fficer of the Association of high rank, in whose leadership producers and handlers of cotton have confi dence. Aberdeen Examiner.
