named the park for Mr. J. G.

quite a nice and merited compli
ment. Mr. Neudorfer has been

vice implies much more than
words can express. He was pre
sent and agreeably surprised and
acknowledged the compliment
most gracefully stating, that it
could be named for others more
worthy than himself. The
I. C. R. R. Cos., has expended
quite a sum of money within the
last few weeks through the in
fluence of the Civic League,
whose active membership is com.
posed of our dear, sweet women,
to whom we are indebted for the
Park. Mr. Neudorfer made
some splendid suggestions upon
which the League will act. One
was to get the park in shape be

cises at the A, & M. C. That
was a good suggestion. It will
be nice for all visitors to see itj.
It will be nice for the next

ANOTHER GOOD MAN
For State Senator.
The name of Mr. J. A. Me-
Reynolds was handed in too late
last week to appear in the an
nouncement collumn of the News,
but is in proper position and due
form this week.
Mr Mcßeynolds was born and
reared in Western Oktibbeha
County, where he has ever
lived, excepting the years that
he attended and taught in Col-
in Virginia and three years
that he taught school in the
He is a thorough gentleman
and a finished scholar; an up
right citizen and a Christian
He.too,intimates that he would
prefer meeting the people at
public places instead of house to
house canvass, but will endeaver
to see every citizen of the Coun
ty. The many friends who have
been instrumental in bringing
Mr. Mcßeynolds out feel and be
lieve that he would be the right
man in the right place in the
Senate chamber, representing
the 23rd Senatorial District,
composed of the Counties of Ok
tibbeha and Choctaw.
As between the gentlemen as
piring to a seat in the United
States, Hons, Jas. K. Vardaman,
Leßoy Percy and C. H. Alexan
der, his decided preference is for
Jas. K. Vardaman “first, last and
all the time, 7 ’ that he will stand
to the Vardaman post “with
out hitching from start to finish.”
We with his friends believe
that if elected he would make a
good representative that would
honor the district and one that
we would not be ashamed of un
der any circumstances.
He asks that the good people
of the District investigate and if
found worthy to give him their
support and influence for which
he thanks one and all most kind
ly in advance.
He is before you for your con.
sideration and his request is en
tirely fair and reasonable.
The observance of the Lord’s
Supper will be celebrated at the
United Presbyterian Church, on
next Sabbath morning, April the
2nd, at 11 o’clock. Preparatory
services will be held on Satur

tion for Sunday a. m.
