A great many corporations are
being granted charters under the
laws of our Btate. The list em
braces nearly all the various
branches of business, both mer
cantile and manufacturing. These
are located in eVery part of the
state and the companies obtaining
them are organized, as a rule, by
citizens of the state. The majori
ty of them are located in what are
known as the “piney woods” and
most of these are for the manufac
ture of timber in some shape or
other. This part of the state is
booming rapidly to the front in
industrial enterprises and bids
fair to Soon distance other sections
in the nnmber and size of its
plauts. It possesses an unlimited
supply of the finest hard woods,
of many species, and presents an
inviting field for investement in
these lines. No part of the union
is blessed with so rich a store of
natures treasures and no where on
earth is there a more genial and
healthful climate. The entire
breadth of this region is covered
with forests of long, leaf yellow
pine, only seven per cent of which
has beeu nsed. In addition to
this there are thousands of aqres
covered with live oak. magnolia,
poplar,aud other species of valu
able timber. The live oak is an
imperishable timber and the mag
nolia furnishes the best of materi
al for gin-stands, piano stands and
many articles of furniture. This
region was, for a loog time, re
garded as almost worthless but it
is now proviug to be equal to any
part of our favored state in the
elements of wealth. Population
is flocking in with unprecedented
rapidity, eities and towns are
springing up as if by magic and
the region is presenting a scene of
progress and development that
equals the booming times in the
history »f the great west.
We hare for a long time be
lieved that the day would come
when the restless population of
our great country wonld discover
and rightly estimate the real,
worth of the wonderful state of
Mississippi. There is no region
on earth, of equal area, that sur
passes it in variety and fertility of
soil, in salnbriety of climate and
in latent resources aud wealth.
There is no other region on enroll
where honest toil is more freely
ami fully requited and none that
presents more enticing opportuni
ties for its employment.
It is evident that the good day
is at hand when the country at
large is,beginning to understand
onr state aud its people. Notwith
standing the malicious warfare
that has been waged against ns
for a third of a century by the
vile n publican press of the north
the truth is dawning upon the out
side world aud onr glorious state
is beginning to be known and un
derstood abroad. Let our people
maintain the same dignity and
pursue the even tenor of their way
as heretofore, confident in the un
fainnar application of the axiom

Uoosevelt has given one more
illustration of his fondness for the
negro and this time has given his
friends in dear old Boston the pill
to swallow. Acting upon his rec
ommendation, the United States
District Attorney for the Eastern
district of Massachusetts has ap
pointed a negro as his assistant
ml has installed hirn ’n office.
1 he negro is a graduate of Har
vard and is said to be a persou ' of
good education and attainments in
the law.

Meat in Abtradaace.
Contrary to the general opinion
that prevailed during last year
th'ere has been enough pork
slaughtered this winter to supply
the wants of the farmers of Lee
county, i^t ono tirpe it appeared
as if there would be but few hogs'
fattened in the oouutry; but when
it become apparent that the corn
crop would be a heavy one nil the
farmers went to work to obtain
hogs and prepare them for slaugh
ter. There proved to be many
more hogs within reach than wrs
thought to ejtist nnd everybody
who could buy'enough to make
their meatdid ho. ^ The price was
very high and money wrtsvvery
hard to get, but all the farmers
managed to get a few. Meat had
been very scarce with most of
them and many were a little
huugry for sausage and chitterlings
and the consequence was that extra
feed aud attention were given to
their hog pens. Many bogs but
a few 'mouths old Were fattened
and were made to weigh surpris
ingly. A good lessou was taught
our people iu this way. The fact
was proven that it is not ueoessary

old to get good results. Many
hogs were killed, this winter, that
were not over ten months old that
weighed as much ns the average
two year old. The two year old
generally eats his lipad off before
he is ready to kill nnd its meat
is not so good as the younger hog.
There is very littlo profit iu the
two year old, but there is lots of
it in the tpn mouths pig that is
pushed for all that is in it by
care and liberal feeding. We trust
our friends will profit ’by their
experience this winter and belive
that experimentation in that line
would be profitable.
The wtather during this month
has been exceedingly inclement.
At present it is cold and cloudy
with lots of ice on the ponds and
ditches. The farmers have not
gone to work yet. As soon as the
weather grows balmy and bright
every tiling will begin to hum.
The old mules humped themselves
last year and have lieen enjoying

Over their last years success in

for the sun to shine out and thaw
the earth so they may set in fbr

this year that crowned their labors

As the Indianola affair is open
ed up it is developed that the ani
mus that governs Roosevelt’s ac
tions is the desire to secure the
negro vote in the next republican
national convention. He is very
ambitious and is exceedingly anxi

oils to occupy the presidential
chair through the votes of the peo
pie. In order to attain the frui
tion of his aspirations lie 1ms
shown in this matter that he is
willing to over-nide the will of the
people and to disregard all sense
of decency and* propriety. Tim
further he goes the more he shows
the'cloven foot. We take no part
iu the attempt to prove that there
is ‘•nigger” blood in bis veins, but
it is palpably evident that the
southern maternity which lie
claims did not impress his charac
ter greatly and that the puritan
lineage of his father predominates
in his make up. He evidenilv
likes the “nigger” better than lie
does tfie Southern white man.
There is a confident belief which
is shared by everybody in the
south that cotton will advance in

Maj. S. A. Jonas
The Aberdeen *‘Ex imdier,” in
many respects, is one of the very
best exchanges that comes to onr
table. Its distinguished editor is
<one of the best posted men in the
8ta|e in all matters relating to its
material growth and prosperity.
He takes more pains to collate
statistics bearing upon the agri
cultural and industrial products of
the state than any man in it. He
is more familiar with the history
of the'state than any man in it
and in every thing that pertains td
it that he prints, lie fchows the
^.tudv and care that lie has expend
ed in its preparation.IJe patches
e’.osefy the- farming interests of
his county and his paper teems
with items which show his research
and his knowledge oT its affairs.
Heisamauof exceedingly reten
tive memory, of broad information
and possesses rare faculties for
add adaptation to his favorite
labor of hunting ,up statistical and
historical facts. His life has been
chiefly spent in lines in which he
has cultivated these tastes until, it
mav be said of him that he has be
borne ’ an encyclopaedia of knowl
edge on these subjects. We once
heard Secretary Limir say that
*‘Maj. Jonas whs the best posted
and most widely informed man
that he ever knew.” This is high
commendation, coming from such
a source,.
The Journal,is pleased to make
these remarks in view of the fine
work which its old friend is doing
in behalf of his county and state.
We feel iudebted to him for second
ing our efforts in bur labors on
similar lines. If all onr papers
would follow the “Examiners” ex
ample, great good would be ac
complished throughout the state
Col. J. H. Duke.
We congratulate onr old frun
Col. Jim Duke of Scooba, on the
successful issue of his suit iu New
York against the Journal news
paper of that, city It will be
remembered that when the cele
brated insnr atice cases, at Scooba.'
were engrossing public attention,
Col. Duke was included in the
list of those charged with poisiu
ing subjects in order to get the
insurance on their lives. The
New York Journal published
sensational , statements against
Col. Duke, and he brought suit
against that paper in ordcjr to
vindicate his reputation, The
suit was decided, last week, in
his favor aud he. came out with
flyiug colors. We have known
Col. Duke since his boyhood nnd
did not, at any time, believe that
his good name would suffer be
cause of the charges against him.
We are glad to hear of his triumph
and congratulate him upon his
houoable defense of his character
and his complete vindication.

Tupelo, Miss.
Dear Sir:
I have been riding the Saddle I bought

I consider it the best Saddle on the market
today--the easiest on both rider and horse.
Yours truly,
Guntown, Miss Tax Assessor.
There is no disease so insinuat
ing, so slow but sure, as kidney dis
ease, or so wide-spread. The symp
toms are so slight as to generally
escape notice. j
The first indications appear in
the urine, with varied effects. The
quantity may be increased or de
creased; it is likely to be highly col
ored and scalding; it may be pale
or thin, or thick and milky with a
sediment. Later on more pro
nounced symptoms will be present,
such as dizziness, bloating, etc.,
with marked bladder and urinary
Poisonous waste (natter is collected
by the blood from all parts of the sys
tem and carried to the kidneys, where
it is separated and cast out through the
urine. The kidneys deal with tbe blood
only, deriving nourishment there
from. Hence, if the blood is bad tbe
kidneys are not only overworked, bu.
underfed. How necessary 13 it, there
fore, that the purity and vitality of the
blood should bo maintain ed. It is plain
why the great blood purifier and
strengthener—Dr. Harter’s Iron Tonic—
has been successfully used in treating
kidney diseases and in preventing same.
In purifying the blood the kidneys are
greatly relieved, while, at the same time,
new strength and vitality are given
these organs. The following letter tells
a very old story:
Pine Knot, Ky., June 25,1902.
The Dr. Harter Medicine Co., Dayton, O. \
Gentlemen: I had a severe case of
typhoid fever six years ago, which left
my kidneys in bad order. I have tried
a number of remedies and taken treat
ment from doctors, but Dr. Harter’s Iron
Tonic has done me more good than
everything else. C. Cordell,
Merchant and Mine Operator.
There are thousands of just such
cases as the above that are treated
without ffesults because they are
wrongly treated. Mr. Cordell’s
condition resulted from an exhaust
ing fever; the kidneys, as well as
the rest of the system, had been
wasted by disease. No wonder Dr.
Harter’slron Tonic promptlycured,
because it purified and enriched the
blood, ana such blood carried new
strength and vitality directly to the
kidneys and to all the organs.
