It is a in hi lei* of public know, ledge that resorts of evil are be mg mami amen in this communi ty where vice in various forms flaunis itself with little if any concealment. Wo believe that proper dih genc ,j on the part of Municipal officers would stop I his situation The racetrack here is lenown to be a gambling den, where games run from Saturday even ing till Monday morning. There are houses here occu pied by men who do not work, and whose record is known to the officers of the town. They ought to be broken up. and can he broken up, if the officers of tlit- law will do their duty. Cheap shews, whose every in fluence is for evil, are allowed to come here to exercise their de bauching and corrupting devices upon the young men of the com mumty. The women of tne comm unity I are powerless 10 protect their sons from these evil inflaences without the aid of the law and its officers. The grand jury in its work of only a tew days found ample evi dence of the existence of this situation, and called upon the local officers for the enforcement of the law. WILL YOU DU IT ? The people of the community have the right to expect it of you. Evil ana notorious houses where sin e.nd shame flourish can be suppressed, if The officers of the* mw are willing to do their duty. At Clarkesdale a lew days ago a terrible tragedy drove the of ficers to the performance ol their duties. Why wait for thL kind of thing here? The women of the community can not enforce the law. We appeal to you to do it. Shall our appeal be in vain? Yours for a good town, The W. C. T. U. Pnr Qjila 1 lil 7 Ivl Olilt* year old mules sound and tine workers. Weight about 800 pounds each.
