Don’t Mistake tlie Cause of Your
Troubles. 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.”

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
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
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
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.

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.
