WALKER I Starkville. 1 -rr- '****■ *m * -w Attention! Your Attention! The present and the future, probably are more interesting and joyful than the past, for now is always the accepted time, or should be. Now is the time to take notice that Mrs. Mollie Ros seau Portlock, the stylish and popular Milliner, will make a grand display of the latest styles of Fall Ladies Hats, the finest ever brought to the market, the Grand Opening to be on the 29 — 30th. and a most cordial invita tion is extended to the ladies of Starkville and vicinity to attend and inspect these hats and other goods that will be on exhibition, usually kept in a fashionable millinery establishment, of the most modern styles. Mrs. Portlock is delighted to announce to her patrons and the public generally that she has se cured the services of Miss Rebec ca Wilson who is one of the most artistic professional hat trimmer extant, who was with her last season and contributed so much in pleasing customers and pat rons and in making the past a complete success. Miss Wilson endeared herself very much to the good ladies of Starkville and vicinity and is en eminently pleased of the oppor tunity of meeting friends and ac quaintances and serving them. We would suggest that there is nothing more pleasing to a husband than to see his wife under anew, beautiful hat purchased from Mrs. Port lock. And we might add that same or kindred pride thrills the heart of the single man to see his best girl wearing a similar crown—for they are crowns worn by queens. Be on time and purchase one of these hats to wear to the Ok tibbeha Fair. Husbands, sweethearts, don’t forget to remind the dear ladies of the correct day of the Grand Opening. This much you can do in their behalf. I Have You Seen It?? I If not, look it over. IS Butterick Fashions 25c, 1 Including A Free Pattern Coupon. ® S (AUTUMN ISUE) I B.

The Starkville Uuion is rejoicing In the good accomplished by Mrs. Atkins, the expected speaker on Wednesday evening at the College at 7 o’clock and in the Methodist church at 8 o’clock; also at a “Mothers Meeting” Thurs day morning in the Baptist church. A wash-out near Yazoo City prevented the fulfilment of her engagement to lecture Tuesday evening, to the regret of the Union and the audience assem bled. But “all’s well that ends well” for when she did come it was by the power of a loving spirit and a match less eloquence to conquer all who came within the magic of her presence. By the co-operation of President Hardy and Mr. Bindley at the College, a splendid body of students greeted her, voluntarily and not through compul sion, in the chapel, to whom she talked from the fulness of her mother love, of “the things that are worth while” in the battle of life. The special burden of her message was to warn against the triple evils of alcohol, cigarettes and impunity, and well did she prove that failing in these requirements was to fall far short of the exactions of even a a successful business career, not to mention the higher attainment of men tal and spiritual culture Her own experience as a mother and her deep interest in boys in general caused her utterances to meet a merited response in the hearts of the students. Mrs. Atkin’s lecture at the church on “Esther” was profoundly impressive and no one with even the semblance of a heart could have heard it unmoved, and the result financially and in mem u*3ij.uip was immediate and splendid. For the loyal response of our brothers to aid financially in a sum of twenty-five dollars for state work our hearts swell with gratitude to them, and to God. Fifteen new names were added to the membership roll, and to these dear women we can truthfully say, “Come with us and we will do thee good.” The Mothers Meeting was attended by at least twenty-five women eager and earnest to meet the responsibilities of womanhood. Words —plain, sincere, golden words fell from the lips of Mrs. Atkins in this talk to women of the sacred duties and privileges of mother hood. Amid uttered and silent benedictions Mrs. Atkins bade adieu to these women and boarded the train at 10:13 tor Eu ♦ pora, her next appointment. We stand ba*k of them. We want you to stand in them. “Fabian” Suits at Blumexfei and & Fried.
