The Gulf Compress Co. are negotiating for the purchase of the People’s Compress at Vicks burg. The Gulf Co. have been , buying out compresses through out the cotton belt for several years and the indications are that the company will before many years have entire control of the cotton compressing bus iness. With this powerful lever age the Gulf Co. can make or un make towns at its pleasure and we fear that it will not be long before the business intrests in those places where the Compres ' ses have been taken in by the combination may find it necessary to erect compresses as a matter of necessity.

A Increase of Assessment. Tax Assessor George W. Green has completed and filed with the clerk of the Board of Supervisors the assessment rolls of the county for the year 1906 and both the real and personal rolls show a very gratifying increase. The gain in the realty assessment for the year over that of 1902 is $910,266; the gain on the person al roll over that of 1905 is $250, 032, making a total gain of$l, 160,298. Both rolls will be re viewed by the Board of Supervis ors at their next regular meeting sitting as a board of equalization, and it is more than probable that the land assessment will be in creased by more than $100,000 in raises from the assessments given in by individual landowners. This will place the total land in crease at more than a million dollars over the assessment of the year 1902. The value of our lands has advanced during the past five years and the top notch has not yet been reached. The steady increase in the valuation of the property of the county shows a very healthy state of af fairs financially and our people are to be congratulated upon the increase of value and material improvement of their property. What’s Worth While Having but one life to live, that which is useless, needless and time-waisting should be cut (Ut as detrimental to the well rounded life. We all want to make tie best of life, ana might profitably ask our selves what may be left out and what we may lay hold upon. As a rule we may let go i all thincrs that are transient and but take up our time. Life is too short for shams of any de scription, what we really are we should be without fear. If we could divert ourselves of every form of falsehood, or make be . lief, we would be rid of much foolish fear and unrest. Then too, a sham always results in trouble and morification, no mat ter how promising it may appear at the beginning. We could leave off worry, and be stronger in body mind and soul. Worry distorts the moral and mental vision and does no good to mortal man or womrn. We could dispense with discon tent and be all the bette Any simpleton can preach and prac tice discontent, but it takes gen uine heroism to bear life’s trials and sorrows patiently and with out complaint. Self-seeking, is another hin drance in making our span of life the best possibl. The world was made as much for one man as for another, and grasping ava rice brings only dissapointment. The best things of life are with held J'rom those who exist only for self, while the richest bless ings comes to those who exist only for self, while the richest blessings come to those who for get self and help the world when ever they can. Having let go the useless, we must seek what we should lay hold upon, First should be a wise use of time. Everything else of value may be replaced, but time lost can never be restored We might each take into consid eration the problem of howmuch time is ours to devote to harmful pleasures and idleness and how much to honest work. We may with pleasure and profit seek friendship. It is a privilege we have of making friends for both life and eternity. Sometime in eternity we may form new friendships, but the ties that will bind us to those perfect beings cannot be so strong as those that united hearts and souls while we were struggling, suffering mortals. Cherrish friendship as a priceless jewel for it like other things of true value is immortal. Work that occupies body mind aud soul is another thing to lay hold upon. To fihd the work for which we are suited, and to do it well should be our ambition. Each day is a gift from our Maker with new opportunities. What will we do with them? If we fail to do the work intended for us alone, it must forever be gone. • Let us then let go all things unworthy and take strong hold upon that which is worth while, and our lives will be blessings to those with whom we come in contact.'-Oxford Eagle. Townkillers There are about eight classes of townkillers, and every town is offlicted with one or more of them. Frst those who go out of town to do their trading, second those who are opposed to improve ments; third, those who prefer a quiet town to one of push and business; fourth, those who op pose movements not originating with themselves; fifth, those who deride public-spirited men; sixth, those who imagin they are the town; seventh, those who oppose every* movement that doesnot appear to benefit them; eight, those who seek to injure the cred it or reputation of their neighbors —Pratvflle (Ala) Progress. \ Eradicating Johnson Grass Prof. A. M. Soule in Southern Farm < Magazine of Baltimore for August: j The difficulty of eradicating Johnson grass is due to the stolo niferous nature of its roots, which penetrate the ground rapidly in all directions and throw up a stalk from each joint. Cultiva ting the land and cutting the root stalks up into pieces simply tends to make the grass grow more prolific and to priduce a larger number of stalks from a given number of roots within a year. Salt, and various other remedies which have been used to control some forms of weed pests have little or no effect on Johnson grass Arsenic was used with fair suc cess in some experiments in Texas but it destroyed the land and it is expensive and dangerous to us. Hogs will become fond of the roots, and if a sufficient num ber are penned on the ground to work it over and over they will pretty thoroughly clean it. If this practice is pursued for a num ber of years one might rid the land of the pest. Smother crops like cowpeas, are of some service but not effective. Cutting the crop repeatedly to prevent its seeding will not destroy it, owing to the peculiar nature of the roots already referred to. The method advised by the United States Department of Agriculture to which reference has besn made, and for which strong claims are made, is about as follows: Plow the ground shal low in August to just sufficent depth to bring most of the root stalks to the surface. Then run over it with what is known as a root digger or grass hoe- This has long sharp teeth, and is an implement constructed very much after the pattern of the or dinary Planet, Jr., or Iron Age one-horse cultivator, except for the difference in the character of the teeth. This will bring the creater Dart of the roots to the surface, and they can be gathered up in bunches and burn ed. The operation repeated two or three times during a season will eventually destroy the grea ter part of the Johnson grass, and then if hoed crops and smoth er crops are used, followed by hogs, there might be some chance of holding it in check and ven tually eradicating it. It is a dif icult undertaking at best, and only persistence and continuous effort will bring reward. Wyoming Watermelon. Watermelon, law sakes alive!
