Jackson, Miss.,--A bill to re duce what he terms the excess ive sums being received by sheriffs and chancery clerks will be introduced at the next session| of the legislature, by Hon. Ed l Franklin, of Sunflower county, according to a statement made by him last night. It will be remembered that in 1912 Mr. Franklin introduced such a measure which was tde feated, However, he is not in the least discouraged and says that the people of this State now realize the need of such legisla tion. It is not the plan of Mr. Frank lin to put these officials on a sal ary basis, as he says the consti tution would prevent. He does propose, however, to arrange a maximum of fees to be received in such a manner that the high est paid sheriffs will not receive more than $5,000 per annum. Mr. Franklin also proposes to place the office of revenue agent on a salary basis and in this con nection declares that the inter ests of the people demand that the revenue agent be taken off of the fee basis on which he is now operating. Another measure Mr. Frank lin intends to fight for is one- to provide that in counties having county attorneys he shall be the attorney for the board of super visors. Mr. Franklin has been here the last two days attending to business at the State Capitol. He leaves this morning for his home In Ruleville. Caot. John Burgin spent a portion ot Tuesday here and in the afternoon went to Long vie w where he visited in the home of his daughter, Mrs. Lamb.

June 22. —The secret division of fees between physicians and surgeons is “criminal dishonesty,” said Dr. Win. I). Haggard, of Nashville, Tenn.. in an address today be fore the American College ol Surgeons, holding its conven tion here. “Fee splitting,” he said, “is criminal because it leads to un necessary operations, to incom petent work resulting in unnec essary death and to a constant lowering of the moral and pro fessional standards in medicine. The practice has all through it ihe element of theft.” Prof. J. C. Herbert, on his re turn from Memphis, stopped over with his sister, Mrs H.

What Is "Dignified” Work? •Secretary Red field, in answer to the complaint of an employe of the department of commerce that he was required to* do work beneath his position, is reported to have said: “I do not know what the kind of work can he which is beneath any man’s position, I think there is no work of which I know or have heard that is beneath my dignity to do and I am glad to sav that 1 have clone the plainest and hardest, and what is some times mistakablv called the most menial work, and am ready to do* it again if there is occasion.” The secretary’s theory of the dignity of work is hopelessly out of date. As any one of hundreds of young men inform him, only that kind of work possesses any dignity which can he performed with the least possible effort and maximum of pay, and preferably in supervising the work of some body else. The country is lull of employes to whom the first consideration is not their tliness for their duties but whether their duties tit their social position. These ideas are really based on a distaste for work for work’s sake. At their rate of growth, apparently soon the only people who will do whatever work lies at hand will be the very rich and the very poor. It is only a sell conscious “social class” which disguises its contempt for work by questioning its quality and •‘dignity ” —New York World. Young Men Wanted! Every young man in our town is wanted!
