A happy and prosperous New Year to all. On January 1st the penitenti ary board of control turned over to the new officers the peniten tiary property of the state. The appraisers of the property com pleted their work and after sum ming up the grand total the prop erty was valued at the sum of of $1,074,785.88—being thus in creased in value from $147,000 since 1899. The frequent attempts at mur der and the riotous and unbecom ing conduct of the negro troops out west is going home to the President and he is beginning to realize that none of them should be enlisted in the service as sol diers. The dismissal of the ne gro regiments for the murder of citizens Brownsville seems to have aroused negro troops to similar deeds, and the frequent outrages since the Brownsville affair is giving the President all the evidence necessary to con vince him that they are not made of the right material for soldiers. The service would be improved ane a better class of soldiery would follow the dismissal of all n QrrrA frnnnc -o--JC Capt. P. M. Savery died at his home in Tupelo, Mississippi, of pneumonia, on Thursday, Dec. 20, after an illness of several weeks, and was buried at Bald wyn on Friday, with masonic honors. Capt. Savery was for merly a resident of this place, where he was engaged in bus iness before the civil war. At the beginning of hostilities, he cast his lot with the Southland, and served four years in the Mis souri troops, along with Capt. Reddish, Dr. Allen, William Drake, Robt. Taylor and other of our citizens. At the close of the war he decided to remain in Mississippi, and located at Bald wyn. Later he moved to Tupelo where he engaged in business in which he was very successful. Capt. Savery was a brave and daring soldier, an honorable gen tleman, and his death will be greatly regretted by those who knew him.—Liberty (Mo.) Her ald. explanations given by the roads when these horrible disasters oc cur and greater protection must be given the travelling public by the roads. One of the causes for so many wrecks is the em ployment of young and inexperi enced operators in places where old and more trustworthy men should be placed. The placing of these overworked, inexperienced men in such responsible places should be abandoned by the roads and fewer accidents and a much leeadoss of life will be the results. Christmas. Christmas day and the entire week following was more gener ally and quietly observed in Tu pelo than we have ever known before. On Christmas day there was no business done and the people generally remained at home. The Christian spirit was manifested not only in the quiet observance of the day and atten dance of divine services by many, but also in that broader sense of ministering to the poor, the af flicted and the bereaved. While several of our homes were visit ed by the angel of death, yet in their sorrow the bereaved ones were made to feel that all the world was akin and that in their grief they were not desolate, but that the love and sympathy of the entire community was theirs. It is gratifying to know that the true Christian spirit pervaded the homes of our people and that but few, if any, forgot the sa crednesB of the day. A Happy New Year. It is with sincere appreciation that we return our thanks to the patrons generally of the Journal for their liberal support and uni formly kind treatment received at their hands during the past. It is no easy task to satisfy the public in running a newspa per, yet we arer' made to feel that our efforts have been appre- ! dated by our constantly growing ; subscription list and additions to the number of our patrons in the other departmenis. For this evidence of their friendship we are truly grateful. To all we extend our best wishes for good health, happiness and prosperity. May 1907 be the best year you have ever seen. 1 J. C. Kincannon, It must not be presumed be cause Commissioner Kincannon voted against the Governor in the last goround with the board of control that he stands with that faction which is charged with the mismanagement of penitentiary affairs in general. On the con trary, Mr. Kincannon's record is against any such presumption. He it was, be it remembered, who began the fight for penitentiary reform in the last administration in ousting Warden Parchman.and now that the work has been com pleted no doubt he feels gratified at the result. Mr. Kincannon's position that the penitentiary management should be divorced from the railroad commissioner ship and his support of law mak ing this change at the last ses sion warrants the statement that he has been a consistent and earnest advocate of prison re form in this State, and his record has proven him a potent factor in bringing it about. Now that he is retiring from the prison man agement along with the others of the board of control, it is perti nent and proper to make this statement of simple justice.—Co luraKno or\Q f There are a few adherents of the Governor who blindly claim that Mr. Vardaman is the man who instituted the fight for pris on reform, but the people of the State who are willing to give credit where credit is due accord Clayte Kincannon the honor of initiating that movement. As stated by the Dispatch, Mr. Kin cannon has labored earnestly and zealously in behalf of the people since he became a member of the board of control of the peniten tiary m 1899 and his record ante dating the Governor in office will attest that he has been faithful to every trust. Another wreck in the vicinity of Washington City resulted in the death of thirty-five passen gers and the wounding and maiming of many more. The wreck was on the line of the Baltimore & Ohio road and oc curred at a suburb of the city as the train was entering and a dense fog made it impossible for the engineer of the approaching train to distinguish the signals. The road employs the block sys tem in running its trains and the officials are non-plussed in trying to account for the acci dent’ While the block system has been adopted by many roads and is endorsed by many of the leading railroad men of the day, there seems to be some defect that must be remedied or the system superseded by another that gives greater security to life. The frequent wrecks within the past few years has caused the people to view with distrust the Ring put the Old, Ring in the New. Ring out, wild bells, to the wild sky, The flying cloud, the frosty light: The year is dying in the night; Ring out, wild bells, and let him die. Ring out the old, ring in the new, Ring, happy bells, across the snow; The year is going out, let him go; Ring out the false, ring in the true. Ring out the grief that saps the mind, For those that here we see no more; Ring out the feud of rich and poor, Ring in redress to all mankind. Ring out a slowly dying cause, And ancient forms of party strife; Ring in the nobler modes of life. With sweeter manners, purer laws. Ring out the want, the care, the sin, The faithless coldness of the times; Ring out,ring out, my mournful rhymes, But ring the fuller minstrel in. Ring out false pride in place and blood, The civic slander and the spite; Ring in the love of truth and right, Ring in the common love of good. Riug out old shapes of foul disease; Ring out she narrowing lust of go’d; Ring out the thousand wars of old, Ring in the thousand years of peace. Ring in the valiant n an and free, The larger heart, the kindlier hand, Ring out the darkness of the land, Ring in the Christ that is to be. Resolutions of Respect. F. E, and C.

We suppose that you use Fertilizers liberally, you can't afford not to. It will soon be time for you to make your decision as to what Fertilizers you will use in 1907. Are you going to buy a i popular brand? If so, be sure you get “COTTON BELT” , ; It is popular, and deservedly so, with those who used fertilizers the past season, because they found it in the best mechanical condition, with a large percentage of PLANT FOOD, which gaye most satisfactory results by increasing their yields wonderfully. It is not the name, how- I ever, with which we wish to impress you, but rather the quality that is what should interest you. Look carefully into the guaranteed analysis. We lead all of them in this respect, and that is why we can boast of one of the NEWEST and most POPULAR brands of Fertilizer sold in the state of Mississippi. Available plant food is the one valuable property of Fertilizers If the “old and popular brands” contain less of this than ours, you are the loser if you fail to patronize your home plant. We deserve your patronage and believe you a.e going to give it to us. , Our Fertilizers are for sale by the following Dealers: * i J. J. Rogers & Son, Tupelo, W. C. Burt & Sons, Belden.
