WOMEN VOTERS ARE REGISTERED Sixty-six women of Oktibbeha County had registered up to Wednes day afternoon with Circuit Clerk Clardy. . . ... This was registration week with the women of the state, and it is an ticipated that before the week closes the list will show a substantial in crease. About forty women answered the call for a mass meeting of the women of the county for Tuesday afternoon at three thirty o’clock at the Com-t House. The meeting was for the purpose, as the call stated of formu lating a plan whereby effective edu cation may be acquired to meet the grave responsibilities that have come upon the women of the country with the ballot. Miss Madge Montgomery, who was instrumental in getting up the meet ing, was not present, owing to a dis tressing accident to a member of her family, and the meeting was presided over by Mrs. Gillespie. After several papers were read, the chairman introduced Hon, W. W. Magruder as the first speaker of the afternoon. Mr. Magruder made a most in structive talk, illustrating to the la dies how they must vote and mark their tickets. He appealed to the ladies not to make the mistake of organizing as a body for political purposes, as such a move would prove disastrous to woman’s suffrage. t Mr. J. B. De Motte was called upon for a few remarks, and after con gratulating the women upon attain ing the ballot, extended to them in the name of the Chamber of Com merce the use of the “Rest Room” of the Chamber. Prof. F. D. Mellen, of the A. & M. College, was the next speaker. Prof. Mellen made a strong appeal to the women to use their ballot wisely. CO-J-D QSy&ssek tekcliifzvelfe: $32.50 The Style Shop Mil.

PIONEER CIIIZER OF OKIHI PISSES M THIS WEES X With the passing away of Mrs. Julia H. Russell on Monday afternoon at the residence of her daughter, Mrs. W, H. Sudduth, Oktibbeha County and the State of Mississippi loses a woman who has been a citizen for nearly 77 years and a notable land mark. Within a stones throw of where she was born she breathed her last. In 1843 the deceased was born in Stark ville on the site which is now oper ated as a picture show by Goodman Bros. The building was used as a hotel in which her parents resided. During her girlhood, she saw In lians passing to and fro going to dif ferent counties trading—they were friendly and good to the white peo ple. Starkville at that time con tained one small store or two, and armers traveled over a hundred miles -o get supplies. The woods abound ed with game and the forests were laden with big timber. , She was a sister of Mrs. R. G. Pear son, whose husband was a noted evan gelist. Her education in part was obtained in the historical building now occupied by Prof. A, M. Max well, and is one of the most notable n this section. It was built in 1854 vvhen the sunny South was at its ze lith and when money was no object and when every home was a palace of repose. The most learned educators were eachers of this academy, especially worthy of mention was Dr. Webb, afterwards one of the founders and president of Clinton, Miss,, College. Under him was fostered and tutored idle minds of the highest and wealthi est daughters of the South. Mrs. Russell had been ill for some iime but during the period of her ill ness' she bore the afflictions with a legree of patience and fortitude char acteristic of'a Christian. When in her childhood she united icrself with the Methodist Chui'ch of Old Cedar Bluff in Clay County. Her whole life was turned toward God, and was possessed with the su pi’eme elements of a full, rounded and complete faith that prepares us to pass out into the great beyond un afraid. She was pure and spotless in her life, kind and gentle in spirit, a true and devoted friend to all. It must be a source of comfort to her children to know that they had a mother that loved them devotedly, and that they did everything for her comfort. The funeral services were held at the home of her daughter, Mrs. W. H. Sudduth on Tuesday, conducted by Rev. J. T. McCafferty, of the M. E. Church, Starkville, after which the remains were borne to its last rest ing place: Odd Fellows Cemetery. On the new mound were heaped myr iads of beautiful flowers typical of the high regard and esteem in which she was held. She is survived by her aged hus band, three daughters and one son: Mrs. Shaw, of St. Paul, S.- C. ; Mrs. W. H. Sudduth, Starkville; Mrs. Britt who resides at the old homestead; and R. C. Russell, of Houston, Tex. To the loved ones left behind, The News extends its condolence. Their hearts are sad, and the clouds seem to hover over them, yet death to a Christian is a great consolation—it’s only falling asleep to awake anew with God. Little Joseph Brittanall, son of Mr. and Mrs. Earl Brittanall, was knocked down by an the Col lege campus Monday afternoon, and seriously injured. The car was be ing driven by Miss Anne Pffpe and from all acounts was unavoidable. At last reports the little fellow was doing nicely, and it is hoped that he will soon recover from his injuries. While Miss Pope was in no way to blame, she has been prostrated over the accident. LOST—Bunch of keys. Name “M. Mitchell” on tag. Finder re warded by returning to Bell Cafe.

Attention of our readers is called to a series of advertisements that are appealing in The News and other papers of the state in regard to the telephone situation in Mississippi. These advertisements are being placed in the papers by the Cumberland Tel ephone and Telegraph Cos. in order that the people may become familiar wit hthe telephone problems. The telephone company is petitioning the state commission for an increase in rates. With the increased cost of maintaining their system, together wit hthe many improvements contem plated by the company, they are making this educational campaign in order that the people can see the justness of their claim to the in creased rate. It would be well for our readers to read the advertise ments carefully.
