We, in this Issue, announce the name
of Mr. H. A. Beattie as a candidate ter
Mayor of the City of Starkville. Mr.
Beattie needs no introduction to the
voters of the town. He Is well and
favorably known, having filled the office
one term. He has a record that stands
for bis acts and points to it with pride
in his aspiration for the office. During
his administration there was more than
three miles of concrete walks con
structed; taxes reduced from 18 mills
to 14; the addition to the Public School
was provided for, which is an ornament
to the city as well as a necessity; the
new negro school house and the mag
nificent roadway from the overhead
bride to the College. These are only a
few of the useful items that his friends
claim for him under and during his ad
ministration as Mayor, and well might
he feel proud of and point to the rec
Mr. Beattie wishes to be remembered
In this race by every voter, and, if you
belleye him to be the right man for the
position, asks your support, and thanks
you in advance for same.
He can only ask that you do by him
as you would like to be done by in con
sidering his claims to the
We were in Sturgis for a short
time last Saturday, and while
there was told that tne large saw
mill there that has been idle for
so long a time would soon be
over-hauled and put in operation
by some parties in Birmingham,
and that electric lights would be
installed and all modern improve
ments would be added. We in
ferred that many hands would be
employed and that the pay-roll
would add very materially to the
commercial increase and pros
perity of the town. It is possi
ble that a log road mav be built
for some miles south and in the
future form a link to some rail
road that is now being sought in
and through Noxubee bottom,
that has an abundance of hard
Several bales of cotton were
brought to town while we were
there and people were doing a
goodly little trade.
The Sturgistes have great faith
in the future of their town.
There is no reason that they
should be otherwise. If all will
work in harmony there is a
bright future, and for any other
place that all will pull together.
Let the majority rule and if
wrong the correction will be a
thing to follow. The more pros
perous our towns and communi
ties, the more prosperous is our
county and state.
President Hardy of the A. &
M, College spent several days in
Jackson this week on business
connected with the college. It
is a great misfortune to the edu
cational interests of the state
that we are to lose Dr. Hardy
who has accepted the presidency
of the Baylor Female Baptist
College, of Belton, Texas. The
state of Texas is to be congratu
lated upon being so fortunate in
having Dr. Hardy as one of its
citizens. He will remain at the
A. &M. College through this
session, which will close some
time in June, which he has so
ably administered and presided
over for the last twelve years
and the best of wishes will follow
him in his new home in the Lone
Star State. We regard Dr. Har
dy as one of the best men that it
has been our privilege to have
eyer known. We have an admi
ration for him for .his personat

Some thief, with-braoe and bit,
bored the panel of one of the
back door? o f Caldwell and
Lampkin’s store-house, Saturday
night. The change that was left
from late trade of the evjning
was taken, but no other articles
were missed. Whoever did it was
familiar with the customs of the
keepers who place the money in a
sack and put it down by the safe.
They did not get any large sum.
Breaking into stores is getting
to be common throughout the
country. It is a good way to break
into the penitentiary, the right

years ago and lam only too glad to

I began to have trouble from mv back

I found that my condition was getting
worse. The pain In my back was almost
unbearable and often I could not stand

back was weak and ray biadder became
inflamed. The kidney secretions were
a source of annoyance and I rested so
poorly that when I got up in the morn

by physicians here and finding no
