Mott, editor of the Yazoo City Herald, has an. nouuced his candidacy for the office of Lieut. Gov. of Mississippi. Mr. Mott represented his county in the lower house of the Legis. lature for lour years and has a clean record behind him. He advo cated and assisted in passing some of the most progressive laws now on the statute books, notably the Initiative and Referendum, the banking law with the guarantee of deposits, and was also one of the three authors of the May-Mott-Lewis prohibition law. He is very popular among his home people and will, no doubt, make a splendid race. Board of Trade a Town Builder. When a town is like a cow’s tail—growing downward—it needs a board of trade. No town that aspires to do things can afford to be without a good, live board of trade or some similar organiza tion. The board of trade is to the town what 11he aggressive adver tisement is to the business man—it puts all the telling points prominently before the prospective customer. A live board never sleeps it is always alive to the- possibility • f adding another citizen and another enterprise to the communi ty. And that is what builds a town—the adding, one by one, of people and enterprises. The town that doesn’t get out and hustle for new enterprises will soon tind itself wondering what has be come of those it had. Business is not conducted in graveyards—they are places of rest. Our own actions will tell whether we are citizens of a town or inhabitants of a graveyard. We Have a Few. ihe super-sensitive man or woman is a puzzling proposition for a community to handle. The person of acute sensibility suffers slights where none are intended. He is forever imagining that his friends are not as cor. dial as they should be. The sensitive man wears his feelings on his sleeve, as it and they are forever being ruffled by the passer by. If this extreme sensitiveness in our neighbor were a fault in the strictest sense of the word we would know how to deal with him. But it is not such a fault. It is purely the result of self, consciousness and is frequently found in persons of a warm heart, ed disposition. They have a cordial liking for their friends and are perhaps of an impulsive, ardent temperament. Their feelings find vent in an effusiveness that rarely meets with the response which they think it merits, and disappointment is the result Tne great trouble with the sensitive man is that he has not yet realized that all men are not built on the same plan as himself. He should remember that there are almost as many different na lures as there are individuals, and each has his pwu peculiar man. consuls and modes of expression, A smile is simply the working of a certain set of facial mus cles. and is just as easy to call up as is a frown.

Topsy— Swift & Company Has Not “Jest Crowed” Swift & Company, in fifty years of well ordered growth, has become one of the great national services because it has learned to do something for the American people which they needed to have done for them, in the way in which they fweferred to have it done. It has met each successive demand, in the changing conditions of national life, by getting good meat to increasing mil lions effectively, efficiently, economically, and expeditiously. The Swift & Company packing plants, refrigerator cars, car routes, branch houses, organization, and personnel of today are the practical solutions, bom of practical experience, to the food problems of half a century. Because of all these elements working in correlation and unison, Swift & Company is able to supply more and better meat to more people than would have been pos sible otherwise, at a net profit per pound of meat so low (a fraction of a cent) that the consumer price is practically unaffected. Strip away any portion of this vast, smooth-running human machine, and you make a large part of the meat supply uncertain, lose the benefit of half a century of fruitful experience, and scatter the intelligent energies of men who have devoted a life work toward meeting the needs of a nation in one vital field.
