IV re presiding, though he did not arrive- until the afternoon, together with Miss Florence Wiley, of Tupelo, the Court's accom p lished stenographer. Shff. James. Clerk Long and other court attendants were at their post of position and acted their respective parts with ease and dignity The chancellor has demonstrated that the people did not make a mistake in their se lection, he is able and and in ev ery manner efficient-most patient and painstaking. There is no position more important than that of chancellor, nor can one be too particular or cautious in the discharge of the varied duties to be discharged. Quite an amount of business disposed of at this term, though divorce cases not so numerous and may be accounted for on ac count of the stringency of the financial depression of the pres ent times It would be well that there should be a decrease of this character of litigation any way. Visiting attorneys in atten dance: Frank Pinson, Acker man; C. H. Hale, Columbus; J. C- Robbins, Tupelo; J.

So of course the game is to our credit if counted at all. The forty hours a month law caused but a slight ripple in the school, even our few gentlemen ?) boarders bowing to the Inevi tab’e and going to work. Most of the boys were working seven ty hours a month already. The girls promptly dismissed the cook and took entire charge of dairy, kitchen and dormitory, in this way they not only get in the required time, but help pay their board also. SUPERVISORS PROCEEDINGS OKTIBBEHA COUNTY. Sturgis Locals. (By MUs Sallle H#*vill) Miss Kdyth Sullivan is on the sick list. Mr. G. K. MoElvanoy has i>oen seriously ill for a week but is a little belter today, (Tuesday). Mr. Clarence West came in Sundav night but the death an. had preceded him sevt'ral iiours and borne away the spirit of his dear mother. Mrs West had been in poor health for sev. oral months but she grew much worse Friday. Loved ones were called in but only one of the three sons reached tier bed side. We extend sympathy to the be. reaved husband, sous and rela tives. May God comfort them in these sad hours. Rev. and Mis. N. H.

We can't afford to pay the edi lor le‘ alone buying anew hat. Mr. Smith Sikes after an at), senoe of several months in J>nn* essee is at home. Dr. Murphy returned home last week. He is still quite weak but is improving. Kev. Cody of Meridian deliver ed an excellent sermon Wednes day night at I tie close of Presby tery. Ur.
