Carnegie s Immense Wealth Andrew Carnegie says that he. is in a kind of dregm when he contemplates the places his mon ey is providing, and cannot real ize that he has anything to do with architectural develop ments. Moreover, that the more money he gives away, the more he seems to possess —his pile is constantly increasing. It cer tainly seems like a dream. Think of a man having so much wealth that he tries to give it all away, yet he finds it impossible to do so ! In the multitude of fantas tic imaginings told of in the Ar abian Nights notone approaches this reality in its wild improba bility, yet it is a reality. Yet the most strange thing is that it is made possible by industrial conditions based essentially up on unsound economocial practice. -Mobile Register. ■ —' Editor New Albany Gazette:— When we contemplate the negli gence of a great many of our members in regard to their non attendance at the regular meet ings of their locals, it produces a feeling of regret that any ol our members should be so neg ligent of their interest, their duty and their solemn obligation. When we enlist our name as a member brother and fail to attend our meetings and to do every thing reasonably within our pow er to promote the interest and the growth of our order, wo are not only a very careless unreli able person, but are actually de trimental to the interests of the cause we are supposed to advo cate. This fact is undisputable, and to attain any degree of suc cess in any enterprise it requires individual effort properly applied and directed. We must not think, bretheren, that all we have to do to accom plish our purpose is to become a member for this only signifies our willingness to be governed by the rules and regulations of this order and place us in a pos ition to do something for the bet terment of our condition. As our name implies we are first an educational institution and without the proper exercises of this special feature at our meetings wo cannot hope to suc cessfully pursue the course as outlined by our constitution. When we look upon the success attained by business and profes sional organizations we are im pressed more fully with the ab solute truth of this statement. We do not mean by this that it is necessary for every member to take a course at co’lege, but that we should thoroughly inform ourselves in regard to this great remove upon the part of the pro ducing classes of and to under stand the true relationship exist ing between ourselves and every other industry and enterprise. Who of us would think of go lug out upon the field of battle in time of war, facing an enemy heavily armed with arms an am munition thoroughly drilled and mustered without so much as a musket. This same rule applies most forcibly to us brethern in our tight for justice, equity and the golden rule. The great bat tle for freedom is now upon us and we should lose to time in equipping ourselves with knowl edge for an onward march to victory. I would say to those on the outside that we do not oppose any honorable, legitimate busi ness. but our aim is to constantly strive to secure entire harmony and good will among ail mankind and brotherly love among oursel ves. Now brethern let us oe more attentive as a member at our regular meetings and put forth every effort possible to ad vance the interests of the cause we advocate. M. L. Jarrett, Center Point Local No. 272. Mrs. J. G. Bell returned Tues day night from Laurel where she ha n on a visit to her son s family, Mr, J A. Richey. —7" . . . Miss Grace Wood is visiting her brother, J • C. Wood in Brooksville. Wyfi Holcomb. Wo rsproducethe caption of an article published in the < liarlottc (N. C.) Ob server, one of the loading newspapers of Charlotte North Caroline together with one or more paragraphs: “The Holcomb meeting has closed — preached to eight or ten thousand peo ple—nearly live hundred souls convert ed and reclaimed —great service render, oil by the newspapers of the city. The music—Smott's solos —general impress slon.” The meeting was continued for three weeks, botli day and night, no lag at any time. The congregations somewhat arger at night than day services. “Those who have followed Mr. Hol comb closely in his sermons throughout the meeting have gone with him into the theatre and have seen him deal death blows to the “tommy rot" shows that frequent our townsjthey haye stood with him at the entrance of the saloon and have seen him hatter |down with Cod’s word Hu* bar-keeper who stands behind the counter, dealing out spiritual death to tin* sous of hoys and men who are crushing the hearts of their sisters, wives and mothers, and then going down to a drunkhard’s grave; they have ac companied him to the place of murder and watched him as in* grasped the : 1 ■ " Walt Holcomb Evangelist now conducting the Waie House Revival. hand of the murderer and wrenched from it the weapon of death; they have gone with him into the gambling dive and have seen him sweep the cards from the table and then bade the gamblers to church to the alter and to Christ;they have gone with him to the race track and watched him as heT'ode shoulder to shoulder, brest to brest, nock to neck with sin and have shouted aloud when he dashed oyer the goal a horse’s length ahead of the enemy and rode safely into the Kingdom of God; and last of all they have stood with him at the uoarlv gate t as he pictured the golden streets of the beautiful city of God <ind beacon them on.” We regret very much that we have not the time and space at this late hour to publish in full the account of this great meeting. We deseire to say that we heard Mr. Holcomb on Wednesday night being as inclement as it was his congre gation was large, appreciative and res ponsive. Success is assured here. The Ware House is in the proper condition and the proper place to accomodate those who wish to hear. Wo* expect large crowds from far and near. Those who have to attend court will have an opportunity to hear the great preacher and singer. Everybody is invited to attend all the meetings. D. B. JACKSON fs a Most Eeffwient And Popular CandUlulate For the Office of County Assessor. This is no supprise to most of the people of Oktibbeha County. This candidate is a native of Oktibbeha county being borned and reared in the southwestern portion thereof. He never sought public office before, - having been a tiller of the soil from his child hood, “a horny hand son of toil.” This gentleman is in every res pect worthy and qualified to till this important office and we know of no better or purer and an up right man. As above indicated this gentleman has never made any pretention to anything more than to cultivate the soil, which we really regard as the noblest and most aristocratic of all call* Mk Editor: - > V Then* is being a great deal of talking and limiting done for a man lo represent the Western District in the lower House, and some think that Ur. Crumpton is the man, and 1 for one would have put in no objection to this had he stayed with us, but we still have a number of men who would make good represen tative that are still with us. Dr, Crumpton is an alright man and made us a good representative, but he left us and he don't ex pect this of our District. Beat 3 lias a number of men that would till the position with credit, and, by the way, I don’t know if she is not entitled to it in one sense. What we want is a man that will take the held on a platform de manding cheaper money ;and that all property sold under the ham mer shallsell for at least its asses sed valuation for taxes;we want a survey of the county from a place in Winston county called Handle to Columbus, Miss.,asset* • lain the cost of a canal between the two points which would give us a water way to the Gulf. Now this may seem a little ab surbed, but as little as you may think of it we can get it by the time that Williams beats Varda nian for the Senate. Respectfully, VOTER. Sturgis. lug or avocations of life—the real, ()uro, genuine stuff. We hereby with authority take r ial and great pleasure in presenting to the vot ers of Oktibbeha county the name of Dmiel Boone Jackson as a candidate for county Assessor, Mr. Jackson is popularly known and greeted by his neignbors and friends simply as Boone Jackson. Mr. Jackson and his friends are confident that lie will be the sue cessful candidate for the oftice. We can all agree upon one thing sure, that if Mr. Jackson should lie elected he would make a faith ful,competent and honest official. He sincerely asks that you give his clainis x due consideretiou be fore deciding and if consistent with your views to give him your iulluence and votes. These are necessary and essential in leading a candidate into office. He hopes to be able to see as many of the people as possible between this and the primary election, though being a farmer he will be pretty much engaged in his crop. He further asks that yon tell your neighbors and friends and speak a good word for him. These are reasonable requests. Mr. Jackson is before you and all know what he desires.
