WOOD - - - Editor Our Motto: 44 Te1l the truth—No matter whom it helps or hurts.” Entered the Post Office at Starkvllle, Mississippi, as second class mall matter Published every Friday. Subscrip tion price $1.50 per vear : - —— I*I4—MEMBER—I9I* mmimipw Press association The man who knows he Isn’t a man Is more of a man than the man who prates that he Is a man. That dollar you are carrying around in your pocket looks mighty big .to ns— If It Is due on subscription. For the girls to answer: Why is It a young fellow will tear around by the hour In a ball garoejand then howl like a kicked hound because his mother asks him to carry In an armful of wood? Keep both eyes on the man who ad vertises. His goods are worth adver tising. and hence worth buying. What Is prettier than a pretty girl? A prettier one, of course. The real test of manhood comes in lending money to a fellow when you are morally certain you will never see ii again. We dearly love the women and al ways have a bright smile for the young bride—when our wife Is not around. Of course the man who struts is a strutter, but a strutter Is just a strut ter and Is never a man A Boy Worth While. Down at Soso, Miss., there is a 16 year-old boy who last year raised 303 oushels of corn on one acre of ground. The Rotary Club is planning to Invite that boy to Jackson, to be a guest of honor in the capital cltv tor one day, and the business men are going to see to it that he has the time of bis life. Most anybody could write an editorial on this subject. At least a thousand good thoughts are suggested by the achievement of the piney woods youngs ter. One Idea, however, that we would like lo advance is that It Is more worth while lor a 10-year-old boy to raise 303 bushels of corn on one acre of ground than to waste his time trying to raise a skimpy mustache on one inch of lip. The lesson ought to Impress itself on several hundred 16-year-old boys who spend the summer months sucking cl garetts and loafing around street corn ers and oooi rooms.. That Soso lad probably wears a hick ory-shirt and brogan shoes, but he will he clad in purple and fine linen and riding about in automobiles when these lads of leisure in Jackson are having a hard time keeping out of the poor house. —Ex. It Can’t be Beat On the Clardy place miles southwest of town, a remarkable crop of wheat and oats have been harvested, thrashed and sacked; off of 8 acres of lands, 150 bushels of wheat and 8 acres of oats 401£ bushels. This land is known and classed as flat woods ana is peculiarly adapted to the growing of small grain and cotton where properly drain ed will produce fine corn. Mr. Clardy has about 100 acres in corn, and from present pros pects will make from 50 to 70 bushels per acre. No country can excel these crops and this is not an isolated case. The eyes of the East and Northwest are looking to our Southland. One good thing, we will have plenty to eat in this section and to spare. No. MS will cure Chills and Fever. It is the most speedy remedy we know. Trustee’s Sale. I By virtue of the terms and conditions of a Deed of Trust made on the 18th day of October, A. D. 1913, by W. J.

The musical recital given and con ducted by Miss Jerome Sage, at the auditorium of the Starkville High School Thursday evening of last week was most instructive and withal most intcr taining and well attended. We are pleased to say that as a rule, our com munity is a music loving people and furnish many pupils. Miss Sage and all concerned are to be congratulated and are entitled to the thanks of the splendid and refined au dience that was present on this enjoy able occasion. When I Shoe_ A Horse I leave the feet of that horse in the best of con dition for its comfort in walking. The shoe is of the proper size, is shaped for a perfect fit, and is scientifically adjusted and nail ed. This prevents lameness, something that de serves your consideration. If you bring them to me and leave it to me, I WILL DO THE REST. J. D. DEANES Starkville, Miss.

Phone 290 for wagon._ City Pressing Club. More Wheat. Mr Frank Hogan planted a piece of land, about 5 1-2 acres, adjoin ing his home, in wheat which yielded 110 bushels of good heavy, choice wheat, so pronounced by those experienced and compe tent to judge- After harvesting he planted the very same land in corn and the prospects are good for a fine crop. Mr. W O. Page, also had about 3-8 of an acre, just back of the post-office, from which he gath ered 8 bushels of as good wheat as one would care for- A portion of this looked as if none was left during the winter for the very close grazing of chickens, but it came out in the Spring, grew tall and thick- These are demon strating patches and shows what can be done in this section--*in Mississippi The latter patch was planted in corn also and it is wheie we can all see what the result will be. Mr- Hogan also lives within the town and anyone may have an opportuni ty of seeing what progress he will make* We have the best state in the Union, there is no fault in the soil, but it is with the man- For best results, advertise in the News—the best advertis ing medium in east Mississ ippi.
