A Starkville Citizen Shows How to Cure Them, Many people never suspect their kid nevs. If suffering from a lame, weak or aching back they think ihat it is only a muscular weakness, when unrinary trouble sets in they think it will soon correct itself. And so it is with all oth er symptoms of kidnev disorders. That is just where the danger lies. You must cure these troubles or they may lead to diabetes or Brights’s disease. The best remedy to use is Doan’s Kidney Pills. It cures all ill which are caused by weak or diseased kidneys. Starkville people testify to permanent cures. J. J. Dennis, Sr., Ames St.. Starkville, says: “I have used Doan’s Kidney Pills with good results and in return, am pleased to recomend them. My kidneys troubled me some, evid enced by a severe pain in the small of my back and a weakness across my loins. My kidney secretions were irregnlar in passage and I was forced to arise four or five times during the night. I seemed to be gradually growing worse and when I learned of Doan’s Kidney Pills, I procured a box. The benefit I derived from their use convinced me of their great curative powers.” For sale by all dealers. Price 50 cts, Foster-Mi I burn Cos., Buffalo, New York, sole agents for the United States.

This the Isth day of March* 1910. S. M. WELLS, Adminstrator, CLOTHINGS ARE GOING AWAY. New and Better. Starkvilleand Oktibbeha Coun ty are coming into their own. Our people are awakening. We, it seems, have been asleep. The county, the town, the col lege authorities, and citizen com rnittee have got together and al ready have accomplished won ders. How was it brought ahoul ? Simply by activity and the peo ple seeing the necessity for la ing up and doing. The Good Road Movement is an active; moving, living reality. Only a short time since a few of our best citizens got together and talked the matter over. It looked like a little thing and it was, but it has grown like a great tree from the little acorn and now work is being done under t he broad spreading boughs as it were. Col. Simon Fried and Dr, J. W. Eckford were elected presi dent and secretary respect!v *ly, for their peculiar fitness and qualifications, not simply honor ed by preferment hut merit, bo mg good workers. This was done last Thursday and at the same time a committee was ap pointed to meet with the Boa -d of Supervisors Monday and th ,j Mayor and Board of Alderman Tuesday evening. This committee met the Board of Supervisors Monday. There were people from all portions of the county. What might have appeared to a looker on as oppo sition was not, but the ‘‘how to do things.” At the last meet ing of the board an appropria tion of $2,000 was made to assist in the building of this road, h it there were doubts ah iut tlie legislation, a law was passed b : the present legislature authoriz ing all counties where state ed ucational institutions are located, to build good roads, authorizing the boards of supervisors t make appropriations fnr sam These roads will be object hs sons for the students and all p< r. sons visiting these institution -. The Board at this meeting made in due form the appropr’ ation of $2,000 and the expend ture is well and wisely guarded and will be judiciously disbursed. About the same amount ap propriated by the city. Tlie College authorities will expend probably three times as much on and through the College proper ty* The private citizens have con tributed the sum of $2,300 for the cause and it will require about $2,500 from this source which we feel sure will be readi ly contributed. Verily the peo ple are in earnest and if there be any real opposition it will surely vanish as the mist b.fore tlie rays of the morning sun. There were many good speech es made but Prof, J. W. Fox, Director of Greenville Experi meat Station, was most convinc ing, for he told how good roads were made in the Delta, where it was thought for many years such could not be done. If the road bed is put in proper shape and the road dragged after each rain at the proper time, good roads The Sinai 1 Salaries of our National Judiciary. The Judiciary of the United States and of tin* states themselves should be the ablest iavyejs and at the same time men of the highest moral charrc ter to be found. It would be. unnecessary to argue that, all judges should be honest and up right as that they should thoroughly know the laws concerning which they are t<> declare judgment. In older to -ecure such a judiciary it is not only n -eessarv to exercise due care in appointing them to office, but it is also absolutely requisite to pay them such compensation as will not only en able them to live in a manner conform able to their high stations, but will pay great jurists to abandon an extensive and remunerative professional practice and devote tie ir abilities to the public service. These remarks are suggested by the fact that congressional comraitiees on the judiciary of the United States will soon take no a bill tu increase the sal aries of United .States judges. The Cliief Justice of the United States Supreme (’ourt to-pay receives a salary of 813.001) a year, it is proposed to raise it to SH.OOo. The associate justices of the same court receive each 812,500. It is pro posed to give them 817,500. The United States circuit judges re ceive 87,000. It is proposed to pay them 810,000 each. The District judges of the United States receive 80.000. It is proposed to pay them $0 000 each. When we consider that the Lord Chief Justice of England has a salary of 840.C00 and other judges are paid $25,- 000 each, the niggardly amounts dealt out to our rational judiciary are strik- I Ingly demonstrated, j The increase- proposed by the bill now in committee will make up an ag i srregatc sum of three hundred ninety six thousand dollars, and should that be : allowed by Congress, the salaries of our I national judges w ill make but a poor ; show by the side of those of the English 'judiciary. There ought to be no delay in making the increase proposed—N. O. Picayune. Strayed or Stolen.

The finder will be suitably re warded for the return of or in formation leading to the recov ery of same. L. M. Prichard, Snirkville, Miss. can be had the year round. It was a very instructive talk. To demonstrate the earnest ness the Board indicated that an appropriation of SIOO 00 per mile from ihe corporate limit, would be made to put the road in shape due West to Trim Cane swamp on the Greensboro road, and different parties volunteered to drag as necessary with their team. Another demonstration of earnestness. District No. 1. may submit a proposition for the issuance of bonds to build good roads North, South, East and West from the County Site. It appears to be the most practicable thing to do. Now that there is a county or ganization of Good Roads it would be well to get together. Dr. J. W. Eckford, Sec’ty will take great interest and pleasure giving any information he can. We hope, in the future, to be able to give better details of the all important work. Give the organization your best thoughts and suggestions. NO. 5
