Chancellor J. Q. Robins then delivered the annual address taking for his theme, “The Call or the South to Her Youth. ” Judge Robins delivered one oi the most practical and forcible addresses ever made before a graduating class. In his opening remarks he stated that he had at first felt inclined to decline the invitation on accountof pres sing official duties, but leconsid , ering he felt it his duty, if with in his power, to say and do what he could for the encouragement of the youth of the country. He directed the attention of the young women and the young men to the necessity of laying foundations for future success by a thorough preparation for the practical duties of life and the grounding into character the principals of civic rightousness. Following these lines, Chancel lor Robins made a deep and last ing impression upon his hearers and the words of the speaker found lodgment in the minds and hearts of his youthful hear erS# In dealing with the problems of education as affecting the youth of the State, he digressed far enough to advocate the es tablishment of a Reform School for both white and negro boys, taking the position that the State should not be parsimonious in furnishing the means to correct the evil doer injthe incipiency oi his career and that money thus spent was more wisely used than money expended to prosecute the same evil doer after he had be come a hardened criminal. The address was made up ol such wholesome thoughts and suggestions and the audienct was highly enlightened and en tertained- _ f I l * I K day at 11:00 a. m. Every member c the church is earnestly requested t be present. SOUTHERN OFFICIAL VISITS TUPELO President W. W.

The efforts of the members of the Commercial Club should meet with every possible encourage ment from the citizens generally, and a hearty co-operation should prevail among the members. The latter are investing their money in the organization, and some of them are devoting much time and thought to the work of advertis ing the advantages to be found here.

In practically all of the larger cities, a publicity bureau is maintained, and large sums are used to employ the best talent to advertise the superior advantages which each city claims over her business rivals. This spirit of advertising has spread over the entire country, and the town that fails to employ some means of advertising itself will become dwarfed, and will be lost in the big fight now being made for business. Thek motive which prompts this local movement, is by no means selfish, but public spirit ed- The benefits derived cannot be limited to those most active in the work, but the greatest benefit is derived by the man who holds largely of real estate and other property from hi 3 profits are increased- It is a public en terprise in which every citizen of the place should feel a person al interest, and should be backed up by the best brains in the community and the hard cash of the man with money. If you are a member, do not fail to attend this “Smoker.” If not, become one beforehand, and be on hand. Remember the date, Thursday night May 27. Medical Society Meeting.
