Subscrlp „on price §1.50 per vear 1914—MEMBER —1916 Mississippi Press association When ignorance is bliss all fools are wise. Trade where you live or live where you trade. Let’s make it Am Tica first, last and all the lime, and then some. When a man’s head begins to swell what few brains he has just slide down into his heels. The “favorite son” idea with regard to the presidential notns nation is springing up all over the country. We decline in ad. vance, Uncle Sam and the Central and South American republics are recognizing Carranza and his government, but hanged if we would want to recognize the cuss or any of his horde in a dark alley. You feed your horse well be cause you know it is of no value to you when it is dead. Why don’t you do as much for you*- home town by trading here? Without either you would be in a bad way. A bullet fired at a fleeing rob ber went wide of its mark, flat tened itself against a steel rib of a corset worn by Mrs. Charles Chadwick in Chicago, and tell harmlessly at the lady’s feet. Will it be corsets for the army next? Thev say beauty ts only skin deep. But u has a practical val ue to its possessor when angling for an American millionaire. Live merchants will be telling you about it in this paper from now on until Christmas. Use your eyes and save the pennies. Four hundred and fifty million Chinese tremble at the menance of seventy million Japanese—a giant helpless at the feet of a pigmy. Japan has a magmfi cent army of seasoned and dis ciplined veteran troops and a complete equipment of modern gunsand munitions of war,while China is without the means of self defense —311 st like Uncle Sam. Wheal and Oats. • The people of this county have and are planting more wheat and oats than at any time since the war between the states. During that stormy and eventful period there was no planting of cotton and everybody had the necess aries of life. Diversification of crops will make the state of Mississippi a self sustaining peo pie within twelve months. Mr. W. L. Clardy has planted this season one hundred acres in oats and fifty in wheat* In many sections both wheat and oats are up and growing nicely Wo are having a most favorable sea son tor the planting of grain. Mr. Clardv did so well with wheat and oats from last plant ing, he went on a larger scale. Mr. J Ward has planted about tiftv acres of oats and a small acreage of wheal, about eight acres only. We were out with Mr. Clardy one day last week at his place two and a half miles south-west of town and it is one of the most pleasing sights to see the work of so many different agricultural implements in use. He expects to plant about one hundred acres in corn ana fifty in cotton next year and other crops such as potatoes, goobers, etc. He is on the right track aud will make it alright. The Man With The Team. Did you ever pass the man with the team on the road? Looking back what do you see? The wealth producer of the country. He’s the man whose toil is making nature yield her richest stores for the use of mankind. He’s the man upon whose work rests the whole structure of our social and econ omic and commercial life. Stop the man with the team on the road and the wheels of industry stop, the channels of fimance are clogged with debt, the social life of a community atrophies and ossifies. He’s the man whose work creates the wealth and in its distrubtion comes the oppor tuinty of our millions. As you motor past the man with the team on the road did you ever contrast your position with his? He’s making wealth; while you are destroying it. He’s creating and you are large ly tearing down. He’s furnishing the basis tor the industry of the world; you are the beneficiary of his work. But for him there would be no cities with their throbbing business life; but for him there would be no trade, no expansion,no opportunity. He’s entitled to half the road; half the time he does not get it. Ha de serves all of it. All hu.nor to the man with the team on the road for he is the wealth builder of our nation. —Columbus Dis patch. We copy the above because it is good and ought to be enticing to all well balanced owners of automobiles and partake of it so that they may grow strong in the belief of the article. It has only been a wonder that more trouble about the right of way to people with teams along the public highways has not taken place. People with teams will after a while organize for pro tection, as the auto people have their organization for protection and pleasure. There are some extremely cautious and consider ate owners of autos, but there are so many who seem to think that no one has rights but them selves We would suggest to these that they be at once un. deceived before too late. We have had some near serious, and some real serious accidents. Electric Bitters Succeed when everything else fails. In nervous prostration and female weaknesses they are the supreme remedy, as thousands have testified.
