Latest from the Balkans. In time we may be able to say of Europe that “water flowed like blood.” Since euteiing the war the Turks have massacred 800,000 Armenians. A dozen or two es caped. Something’s wrong with this dinged war somewhere. Accord ing to “official reports” there are about six victories to every scrap. “Extra! Extra! President Shot Through the Heart!” But. of course, the arrow was launch ed by Cupid and the shaft was barbed with iove. It is related that only once did a certain man have an oppor tunity to get a word in edgewise with his wife, and that was after she had talked herself to death. Billy Sunday says every man is either on the road to heaven or on the road to hell. If B. S. speaks from experience he must have travelled them both. A subscriber wants to know what we would do if we had a million dollars. Hand us the million and we’ll show you darn ed quick. The vote for women sufferagist in New Jersey Tuesday was lost by a large majority, two to one. It will come alright in due course of time. We hope to see it be fore we die. Time and patience will bring it around. Whenever you see a town that is dead you may know that what tew profits are made in that com munity are sent away to outsid ers, and that the town is going down hill every day. We don’t want to be in that class. We want to go up hill, and reach the top, and stay there and we can never do it unless we keep the profits at home. When the president of the United States, one of our great est advocates of peace, publicly takes the stand that it is impera tive that we have adequate means for national defense, isn't it about time for the laymen to look the facts square in the face? American gold will look mighty templing to foreign nations when this war is over, We have the gold, but not the means of pro tecting it. Why don’t our Board of Alder men place some restrictions on auto traffic on our thoroughfares? At limes it is dangerous to life and limb, for pedestrians to at tempt to cross Mam Street. Not only must they dodge around stopped cars, which are in all parts of the street, and often blocking the crossings, but they must also run the risk ot being run over by drivers who seem to think that they alone have right of wav. It does seem that they wouldn’t wait for a serious acci dent to occur before regulating this menace, but would see the need, and prevent any such oc curreuce. Cars should not be allowed to stop just where they please, in the streets, but should he re quired to head in to the pave ments before stopping. STRANGE BED FELLOWS! Already we can hear whisper ing of a senatorial race in 1918 We know nothing in the wide world about it, but if there are but two candidates, the junior senator and the governor elect, we shall cast our ballot for the latter. Let ’er go, Gallagher!— The Aberdeen Weekly dues not subscribe to the sentiment, “let ’er go Gallagher, as express, ed above by our distinguished con temporal y. Aberdeen Week kly. When in Jackson last week, we came in contact with several Triends of the same as the Gre nada Sentinel. One told us that it would be his pleasure to vote for Bilbo for he would oppose Vardanian for U. S. Senate There must he something wrong with the Sentinel man; under the heavy strain that he has been lor the last few months, it looks as if his mind was giving away, for he does not write like a man with a sane and rational mind. He writes like a hopeless man, that he and his crowd are “£one up the spurt’'. Let ’ergo Gallagher” is no good now in this matter. The Congressional Race. The congressional race in the first district promises to aff >rd three aspirants for the honor. There will be, it rumors are to be credited, one from Oktibbe ha and one from Lee, to contest in a triangular race with the gen. tie man from Corinth, E.S Cand ler. “Little Zeke,” in the last several races, has shown himself strongly entrenched in the es teem and confidence of his con stituency. and the race appears to all at this time,as being equiv ocal as to where the aspirants will find grounds upon which to urge their candidacy.—Aberdeen Weekly. Within the last few days we have heard that it was probable that our townsman and fellow citizen, Hon. W. W. Magruder, would enter the field, but of ibis we are not advised. We will say, however, we believe advisedly, that should he enter that he would carry his coun:y by a large majority. He is well equipped for the honorable positiou and very popular with the people of the couuty. Mr. Candler,in the columns of this paper in times gone by, knows that we have said that “Little Zeke”has made us one of the best congressmen that this district has ever had. We could not say otherwise were we disposed to do so, lor the people know for themselves.

Circuit Court convened at 9 o’clock Monday morning Jud Thomas B. Carroll presiding, Hon. M. A. Saunders, district attorney, Hon. B. F. Bell, conn ty attorney, M. R. Fulgham, circuit clerk, L. H.

Car roll delivered at length one of the most forceful charges that ever eminated from a judge upon the bench, ll the laws of the stale are not executed within the county of Oktibbeha, it is no fault of the presiding Judge, for lie does not omit anything that of duty as judge. We are almost pursuaded that it is me duty of everybody to attend the opening of circuit court; the law compelis all officials to do so ana* failure so to do, there is a penally affix ed. It the public generally would attend, it would be better understood why tlie laws of the land are not enforced in the man uer in which they think they they should be. Public senti ment is not sufficiently demon strated; when public sentiment is behind the officers tney dis charge their duties much better and to a greater satisfaction lo themselves it appears. We hope to see the day come that the ministers of the gosp* 1, the ladies of the W. C. T. U and other similar objects in view for the uplift of their fellows, pres ent on the opening of the courts of the state. This district is most fortunate in having Hon. T. B Carroll for circuit judge, certain.y the right man in the right place, and it is pleasing to know that he is ac ceptable to the masses of the people. PROSPERITY. Some weeks ago wo published from the Yazoo City Herald a comment about the Doha Plant mg Cos., headquarters at Scott, Miss., the plantation consisting of about 30,000 acrrs mostly all in use for agricultural purposes. Prof. J. W Fox. formerly a member of the A. & M. College faculty is the general manager, ana none abler, in our opinion, within the stale, or the South so far as that is concerned. Our esteemed contemporary, seemed perturbed, that these large con cerns did little, if anything, to wards promoting prosperity or adding prosperity to the section of country in winch located; that lhev had offices in Memphis; purchased closely all kinds of goods, wares and merchandise and sold them at their own store upon the premises and in so many words the idea conveyed that they got everything in the way of profits and no chance for any one else in the endeavor to make anything. This concern gives employ ment to quite a number of peo ple and quite a number of young men from this county and other sections have profitable employ ment with the above Company. It is not our purpose in this to make any defense, for none is needed, but to turn on the light from another angle. On Monday a second section of a cattle tram left over the Ills. Cent, R. R , consisting of 34 cars of feeder beeves, consigned to this Cos. These beeves were pur chased of Starkville caititmen and meant depositing into ihetr bands of about $50,000. While this is not a drop in the bucket Trustees Sale.
