"K /T 'vi i starkville. -J-V-i .CWWOOV \ww Jk -U 7 MISSISSIPPI. ro ihe honorable B. Beil: Your caustic article in last week’s issue of the Times, addres sed to me,was a source of painful regret, for ten long years our as sociations were such that I had hoped that subsequent differen ces would never arrise, especial \y such as would call for the very mdecent and reflective language yo" persist ia hurling at me. It is true, as vou suggested, f,hat on a former date there was a pontroversy between us, begun by you as you doubtless know, which was dropped by mutual consent; but it was not my under standing that such agreement diould have any bearing upon .ny question except the then present controversy. However, f I have, according to your un derstanding, transgressed the pounds of that compact, then I aost humbly beg your pardon, nd now earnestly pray that our iterest may not again run coun er, one to the other. •If you will pardon me for a suggestion, I shall say that you take your self entirely too seri ously. You seem to be laboring nder the delusion that the great /eight of government, together fith all things said and deeds pramitted, rests upon your Moulders. You must have dream 'l that you were Atlas, lith the whole worle resting pon your broad back. T hat I mean is this; You referr d to my two articles, one in the iews and one in the Times, as Ding directed at you. Now please allow me to inform m that the articles in the News as not directed at you. I did >t have you in mind or any ing you had ever said. Did not J 1 your name, refer to you or ink of you. If you will not coo ler me too nonchalant I will say at I should have written just I did if you had never existed. In the little “squib” printed in Wa Times, all which was written la jocular strain, I did make |fme reference to your legal con cisions in the Hemingway case, Rt as I would have made in the iurt room, without one single llrsonal reference to you. There ■s not one word in that part of % article that could have of feud al the most sensitive. Unless it ■yas the point made therein Rich you very studiously evaded ■your reply, Ido not see what live you umbrage. But you came Kk as vicious as a spoilt child ■h whos worthless toys some STARKVILLE, MISSISSIPPI, FRIDAY, JULY 14, 1011. comrade had presumed to pi ay, or some tigress whose lair had been disturbed by the spoiler’s haild. You became rampant with words a gentleman could ill afford to take and no gentleman would give except under the greatest provication. I submit that in neither of the articles re fered to by you was the word, “lie” or “liar” used by me, and your imputation of the same to me was gratuitous and wilfully false. I shall not compromise my self-respect by attempting a re ply to your childish “prattle,” for it sounds ton much like the whimper of well earned chastise ment, or an attempt to raise a personal difficulty so popular with your cult. But out of deference to memor ies of the past, and hoping to reflect some little light along yonr pathway, I most earnestly direct your thoughts and deepest meditations to a passage found in Mr. Burns’ poem dedicated “To A Louse”, written while he was in church attending religious worship and viewing the object of his thoughts, perched upon the topmost feather on a ladle’s hit. That part of the poem to which I call your especial attention runs about as follows, if my memory serves me correctly, giv ing his Scotish dialect as nearly as I can; “O wad some power the giftle gie us, To see oursel’s as others see us ! It wad frae manie a blunder free us, Ard foolish notion:” Now please understand there is no personal comparison or refer ence in this, but only the thought therein contained; therefore I deem it unnecessary to offer an apology either to you or that bra zen “parasite” so imortalized. Observer. MAYOR SUDDUTH. Mayor Sudduth is active in looking after our street. He had Messrs Egan, Brown, and Me Gee,officials of the Ills Cent ral R, R. here Satuday inspecting the Street Crossings with a view of having some improvements done on same. All crossing should be of such grades as to afford protection from accidents. The railroad in terests desire and needs proper conditions and will do their part.

Mrs. Linney Hannah Dacus and little daughter of Amory, are visiting relatives here. Miss Leland Edwards returned to Memphis this week. We hope she may find her mother’s condi tion much improved. A crowd of about five hundred of our county people assembled here on Thursday last to hear the Hon. Senator Bdbo’s address. They were greatly incensed over the cowardly attempt to as sassinate him while enroute here. No honest minded person can excuss the perpetrator of such a deed and in such manner. If Sen ator Bilbo had merited a thrash ing he should have been attack ed face-to-face and man-toman. The Lord Jesus is fair in his encounters with the arch-fiend, Satan and man might do well to follow his example. Hon. Ross Collins addressed the people in a very manly way and received strict attention des pite the excitement prevailing. Dr, W. E. Murphy of this place and Dr. R. K. Prewit of Acker man gave Senator Bilbo prompt medical attention. Dr, Murphy and Mr George Morgan accom panied him to the sanitarium at Jackson. We intend to invite Senator Bilbo back when he is sufficient ly recovered to speak and expect a larger crowd than before to welcome “Mississippi’s Martyr,” For Sale. House and lot. Apply to A. J.
