SAMPLE __ A. C. McVAY_ For Justice of the Peace 5th Dist. AMOST. ESTES C. R. WILLIAMS » GEORGE PETTY J. R. BLYTHE. H. B. GRISSOM Sweep of the Twc c ^nt Fare. The popularity of the 2-cent passenger fare is taking like an epidemic. Nothing seems to stand in the way of its progress. It is evidently generally lecog nized that the time is ripe for its adoption, and the states are falling into line day after day. Six states have already acted within the past two weeks, or given evidences of action which means the 2-cent fare will soon be adopted. Others have the matter under present or pros pective consideration with the light of wide-spread example be fore them. Nebraska and Mississippi are the latest to take action, follow ing Alabama, Missouri, West Virginia and Pennsylvania. In most of these cases the adoption has come through legislative ac tion, but in one, at least, that of Mississippi, it was brought about by the order of the state railroad commission. It is interesting to note in the Mississippi case, too, that sever al of the railroads Have promptly signified their willingness to adopt the rate without protest, and it is not expected there will ba any injunction proceedings restraining the commission from enforcing its order. There is, indeed, no good rea son that we can see why the railroads should attempt to block this legislation. It is an inevita ble condition which confronts them, and they might as well o-mpf. full v ripppilp to it. The de mand for it has become general; it is sweeping the entire country. Passenger earnings have grown enormously in recent years, and thousands are traveling now where there were hundreds some fiye or ten years ago. Then,too, with the enormous reduction the free list, as the result of the new interstate commerce law, passenger earnings are bound tc be further materially increased. Georgia’s railroad commission has the same powers in this mat ter as have been exercised by that of Mississippi In fact there is no railroad commission in the country with wider authorit y in the matter of rate-making than our own. This rate in Georgia was reduced from 4 to 3 cents by the railroad commission; it has the same authority to make stiP further redurtion, if it be shown that the conditions and circum stances warrant it.—Atlanta Constitution. HYPOTHETICAL. “Miss DeSmith,” began the young man, "I want to ask you a hypothetical question.” The girl nodded assent. “If a young man of good fam ily and sound health and an in sured in com of $5,000 were t: meet the most charming of girls and feed her ice cream for a year; if she had a complexion like a rose, hair a crown of golden glo ry, the hand of a i airy, the bear ing of a queen; if she knew how not to play the piano, how to in duce her small brother to absent himself; was vers< d in cooking, competent to superinted a home; and if the young i an,auspicious ly catching the gi i alone, were to murmur into her ear of pearl, ‘Will you marry me?’ what, in your estimation, .vould be her condition of mind and what her answer?” “While not an expert alienist” responded the gir. coyly, “I think she’d believe him a chump for being so slow, but she’d say ‘yes.’” ... With the preliminaries tnus settled, the naming of the day was but a simple matter. Geo. A. Goodllett. Among the several new candi dates announced in this issue will be found the name of Geo. A. Goodlett of Chesterville for the office of Sheriff. No man in the race is better qualified to per form the duties of this impor tant offce than Mr. Goodlett. He is a member of one of the oldest and most prominent families in this section of the State and has personally a large following of sincere anfl earnest friends, who will support him in the coming election.—Pontotoc Sentinel. Leroy T. Taylor of Lee county candidate for trustee of the state penitentiary from this district, passed through the city on his way to Ackerman on Wednesday last. He is much encouraged over the prospect for his success. He is a most excellent gentle man and is fully capacitated for the position he seeks. The prob ability is that Clay county will give him a solid vote.—West Point Leader._ A young couple in Kansas be came the proud parents of a lit tle girl the other day. They wanted/to weigh the youngster, but had no scales. Just then the ice man came along and they borrowed his scales. To their surprise the little one weighed forty-four pounds. She would doubtless have weighed a ton on the coal man’s scales. Presumably the people of Nic aragua and Honduras are trying to demonstrate to the world which /5f these countries has ac cumulated the most ignorance in the art of war. ANNOUNCEMENT! .
