Mr. J. J. Henry spent a por%
tlon of Saturday and Sunday at
home with his family. The N.
M. & C., the railroad with which
he is connected, is planning for
greater things and will be. In the
near future, one of the greatest
trunk lines in the railroad world,
being a part of the great system
of the Frisco. Since the taking
over of the N. M. C. connection
with the latter at New Albany,
the traffic has increased marvel,
ously. Whenever the short gap
is tilled in from Jackson, Tenn.,
and thence to some point in Ken
tucky to connect with a road of
the Frisco system that goes into
Chicago, it will be the shortest
route from the lakes to New Or
leans and Mobile of any railroad
system in existence. It now en
ters New Orleans over the New
Orleans & Northeastern from
Hattiesburg. We are reliably in
formed that on account of the
great increase in business the
New Orleans & Northeastern will
soon build double tracks from
Meridian to New Orleans.
The Man Who Does.
It is cot the man who talks
and criticises who does things.
It is not the man who points out
the way to success that is success
ful, nor the man who knows it
all who wins wealth and fame in
the great nowadays battle of life.
The credit of accomplishment
belongs to the man who is in the
arena doing things. He whose
face is wet with the sweat of
honest effort he who strives val
iantly and who bravely faces ev
ery condition, he who makes
mistakes but who corrects them
in time, he who puts every bit of
strength and energy he possesses
into the project he is working
on, who gains the goal and
wears the victors laurels. Such a
man knows no such thing as dis
couragement or defeat, and in
yaribly wins out because he de
serves to do so. He tackles the
problems of life deliberately, in
yaribly accomplishes what he
starts out to do.—Bx.

Dear Sir:
As my subscription to your

I will write a few lines and en

enjoy its colums; yet it makes
my heart sad to read of old-time
friends passing into the “Great
Beyond.” I realize more fully,
as we move along with the years,
that each year brings us nearer
our Heavenly home.
We are getting along in our
Western home just fine. This
winter has been a severe one
tho rather dry. Heavy rains
have fallen witiiiß the past two
weeks, which means much to the
farmers. Monday night almost
a cloud-burst fell —the best rain
in fiye yeans.
We trust times wont be so
pressing in the future. Some
predict that the presidential cam-*
paign will cause times to be
harder. It is to be hoped that
those predictions will prove un

Convicts Being Flogged.
Washington—The convict la
bor conditions that prevails in
the operation of subsidiary
plants of the United States Steel
Company, paticularly in Ala
bama were recently probed by
the House steel trust investiga
ing committee. Shelby M. Har
rison of New York, a magazine
writer, testified that h e had
made an exhaustive investigation
of these conditions. Mr. Harrison
told of the large number of state
and county convicts in the camps
of Alabama and of minor offenses
for which some of these men
had been convicted and as penal
ty made to work in the mines.
Ile'stated that men who created
no other offense than walking on
the right of way of railroads had
been arrested for misdemeanor,
convicted and ordered to work in
the mines. Mr. Harrison said that
the state of Alabama derived an
annual revenue of about $400,000
from convict labor leases, and
that the wardens in the labor
camps, who frequently flog the
convicts, are employes of the
steel company. Mr. Harrison al
so stated that he once saw a
prisoner flogged with a threeply
leather strap. Mr. Stanley,
chairman of the investigating
committee, inquired particularly
if the men convicted of misde
meanors were walking on rail
road rights of way, playing golf
on Sunday and similar offences,
were subject to floggings as pun
ishment in the camps, and Mr.
Harrison replied affirmatively,
Mr. Harrison said that the con
vict laborers are forced to lie flat
on their faces to be flogged, a
strap five feet long usually be
ing the instrument of torture,
with fifteen lashes the usual tor

Mrs. A. S. Payne, Sol S. Third Ave.,
Columbus, Mist., says: have not had
a sympton of kidney complaint since
Doan’s Kidney Pills cured me some
years ago and lam only too glad to
again speak in their praise. In 1903,
I began to have trouble from my back
and kidneys and it was not long before
I found that my condition was getting
worse. The pain in my back was almost
unbearable and often I could not stand
for more than an hour at a time. My
back was weak and my bladder became
inflamed. The kidney secretions were
a source of annoyance and I rested so
poorly that when I got up in the morn
ing, I was ail tired out. I was treated
by physicians here and finding no
relief sought help from a physi
cian in Memphis. The result of
his treatment was the same and
I was discouraged. Having heard of
Doan's Kidney Pills highly spoken of

•‘Five years ago two doctors told me
1 had only two years to live.” This
startling statement was made by Still
man Green, Malachite, Col. “They
told me I would die with consumption.
It was up to me then to try the best
lung medicine and I began to use Dr.
King's New Discovery. It was well I
did, for today I am working .and believe
I owe my life to this great throat and

another victim.” Its folly to suffer with
