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
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.

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
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
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.

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.
