Success is trotting right along beside you, but you will have
to crook your arm before you can embrace it.
An exchange says a man should have a good excuse ready be

excuse.
Hon N. A. 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.

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.

the pecking industry will be mailed on request to
