It is being cut up into 40 and 80 acre tracts. When the people of the timber section loose the art of making cross ties they will be the happiest and most prosper ous people under the sun. The truth of the business is the Flatwoods ought to be a var iable garden. It is one of the : finest sections for the growth of 1 the apple tree and a tine truck ing soil.

Yes, it is strange or seems to us that people of iutellegence will send off to concerns that they absolutely know nothing a bout to purchase musical instru ment and get worthless things, only musical in shape and noth ing musical within, but a fraud and a sham. If you want a piano or an or gan for your girls patronize something or somebody -who is responsible. The best are the cheapest. Give the boys and girls the best. Every home should possess an instrument. CRAIG SPRINGS DOTS. Dr. G. W. McGowen and family re turned home last Tuesday from Chatta nooga, where he has been attending medical school.

Dear Colonel: We were visited by a very heaw wind storm yesterday and it destroyed our Methodistchurch and a Masonic Hall, belonging to the colored populace; trees up rooted and fences blown down, and I am glad to say no fatalities nor injuries to individuals, but brought some on their knees in prayer. This is a good people here and are making rapid strides religiously, but they are not financially able to replace our church,so want to request throu gh your paper to send out an ap peal to the dear Oktibbeha Coun ty people for help in the recon struction of this church edifice. It will be contributing to a good cause, the helping to promote the loving Saviour who has done so much for the children of men. I would be so glad if my home folks, whom I love dearly, would donate freely in the reconstruct ion of this building of our dear Lord. It will encourage these good people who has made for ward moves religiously lately, (and others too that are out of Christ, this class is in great num ber up here too ) So I do hope and pray that the dear people will open up their hearts and pocket books and help us on the reconstruction of this building. We will rejoice and be thankful for your aid and help in raising contributions. Thanking you and the people in advance for kindnesses and contrubitions, I am, Cordially and sincerely, W. V. .Shearer. The cause is commendable and hope that Mr. Shearer and his members may receive substantial support, aid and assistance. We have been visited in a great por tion of our county, several deaths and a total distinction of proper, ty. We make mention of this to indicate that If assistance is not granted to the extent anticipated it will ne for the cause that our people have contributed liberally and are in need of further funds. Let everybody do what they can. Ed. Mr. W. P. Riker, who makes Starkville in the main his base of operation, has been in New York.

We have quite a number of the best citizens of Oktibbeha County, who are delinquent in the payment of subscrip tions to the News and good as gold, but as a matter of business we need it and ask them to either remit or call and settle up. Please heed this kind and respectful request which we will rightly appreciate. D. C. Morton’s Shaving Parlor has in creased its force. There will be two white barbers in attendance all the time. For services and polite attention it is the place. There Is no establishment in the state that will excell the furnishings of this parlor and few to equal, if any. The electric face massarge is one of the modern improvements. The old hand process seems good enough, but the electricity cures the headache and all other pains, In fact makes one feel good from the feet to the crown of the head. You will enjoy a visit to this parlor, and the work more. ADATON DEPARTMENT By A Nuisance Mr. K. R.

A young man that will loaf around town until he becomes an eye-sore and let his father and mother support him, dons not oromlse his community much as a useful citizen for the future.— Santa Rosa Record. All of which is very true, but it should not be forgotten that the parents of that young man took charge of him from the hour of his birth to mould his character as they saw lit, and bring him up to either a useful or useless life. The public sentiment which condemns ths young loafer and withholds from him respect and esteem of the community, is right of course) but the parent who peimitted him to become a loafer, to hate work and live In unmanly idleness — should public opinion spare them entire ly and put all the burden upon the youth.—Live Oak, Fla., Democrat. Disgrace Is upon both. There is no opportunities for loafers nor any for their parents In the sense above embrac ed. No man never gets too rich or independent to become a loafer. It l a bad habit to fall into. Suppose young ladies loafed? What promise would there be for them?
