Shoe Department.
That the School Shoe question is a
very important matter. We firmly
believe that if every parent who
intends buying school shoes would
come here, examine our school
shoes, learn the good points in
them, see how well they are made
and how well they look, and how
our men fit the children, we would
sell every pair of school shoes sold
in Tupelo this season. To parents
not able to come with their children
we would ask to send them alone,
they will be treated just the same
as if you were with them, receive
the same good lit and come home
pleased and happy.
Every pair of shoes in our store
is marked in plain figures with the
price, and your child buys a- cheap
ns if you were along.

Northern People Coming
Work of Southern Railway.
The cry of the time is for cheap
laud, cheap in price, bnt rich in
productiveness. Laud lias become
so high in the middle West that
farmers are looking elsewhere for
a more favorable locatiou where
they can become owners and not
renters. '1 lie southern states are
offering some exceptionally good
bargaius m laud Values aud in lo
cations that are easily accessible
to railroads. A demonstration of
what these lauds can produce was^
exemplified in the fiue exhibit
shown on the Iowa State Fair
grounds last week by the Southern
Railway. Fair visitors were
amazed to see what can* be raised
in southern states, and especially
was this noticeable in the many
varieties of grain growu. The
showing of fruit could not be ex
celled anywhere, aud the grasses
grown for fodder were the equal
of anything in that line. There
is a fiue field for the northern
farmer in the South, and many of
those who have gone down there
have made a great success of their
farming. These lands are suit
able for every branch of agricul
ture and can be purchased at a
verv low fisrure. This is esnecial
ly so iu the states of Virginia, the
two Carolina*, Georgia, Alabama,
Mississippi, Tennessee and Ken
tucky. Mr. John F. Olsen, who
had charge of this flue exhib’t ou
the fair ground, said to a repre
sentative of “The Homestead”
that the prople of the North were
fast 1 tiding out that a good farm
ill the South was very valuable,
and that other grains besides cot
ton could be grown at a profit.
No section of the United States
can offer a better place for stock
raising, at a less cost, tkau the
South. Water and pasture are in
abundance. Not an acre of this
land requiresvirrigation to make
it productive. The climate genial,
and healthful educational facilities
good, and where success can most
easily be obtained, they should
write to Mr. John F. Olsen, land
, and industrial agent of the South
ern Railway Co., 225 Deaborn St.,
> Chicago, III., and he will be pleas
ed to answer all inquiries and fur
; nish maps and pamphlets descrip,
tiye of the new South.
The above editorial which ap
. peared iu “The Homestead,” Hes

Good Meeting at Bissell.
A the close of a good meetiug
of eight days held at the above
named place conducted by the
writer, great good has been accom
plished, mauv souls converted and
neighborhood greatly revived.
Bro. W. F. Davis of Saltillo,
arrived Thursday night and
preached for us each day and writ
er at night. Bro. Davis’ sermons
were appreciated by all. Perfect
order prevailed throughout the en
tire meetiug. The house was not
large enough to hold the congre
gations at night. This closed
eight weeks of meetings for the
■writer. I have five churches in
charge and two school house ap
pointments, have Baptized in the
eight weeks seventy-five persons.
At the close of the meetiug Bro.
Davis and l were called as a Pres
bytery to organize a church at
this place, which we did. Seven
teen holding letters were organiz
ed into a church and the church
named Bissell with S. W. Price
as pastor. Au opportunity was
given for receiving members by
experience and Baptism, seventeen
joined by Baptism and on the fol
lowing Sunday, in the presence of
four hundred people, estimated by
a committee, the writer buried
them with Christ by Baptism.
Arrangements have been made
to build the church. The Messrs
DaLee donated one acie of ground
near the store for the purpose.
As God has put it into their hearts
to give this spot oE gVound, I pray
that the Holy Spirit may lead them
to give their hearts to God for
they are noble men.
Yours for Christ
S. W. Price.
