The management had issued invita tions to the stockholders and the cottor nen of the city to a dinner which wa served at the Monaghan hotel at twr o'clock. For this repast there wen nore than fifty spreads. During tin hour a number were called on and re sponded in short talks. The first, Mr. I. M. Allen, delivered a very encourag ing talk. Mr. Allen reluctantly re sponded, and said, "This is an eatinf dinner and not a speaking dinner,” ; cue which a majority who were no' speakers were glad that the speaket furnished them. Mr, Allen reviews ih: 'il of business for the pas ‘ two years and spoke of the splendir conditions now nrevalent and conitrat ulated the stockholders and patrons o the bank upon the magnificent growt! and popularity of the institution. H> predicted that the future would brin continued growth and prosperity to th< bank. Mr. J. M. Thomas, one of the direc tors, responded and said that in re ferring to the affairs of the bank h< would confine his remarks to one fea ture of its management which he fe! had teen of inestimable benefit to th« business interests of this section; am that was that no merchant or fame’ had been requested by the bank to sel his cotton, and that the accounts hac been carried cheerfully.

At the regular meeting Tues day night, the 4th inst., th mayor and marshal submitted t the Board of Aldermen thei annual report of the busines done during the year 1909 From the criminal side of tha report we take the following fa its and figures: Fines imposed during the year 55,050.80. Of this amount $2, 736.53 was paid in cash into th* iity treasury and the balanc* vas worked out on the street? in such cases as were not ap oealed to the circuit court and ire now pending.

In addition to the sidewalks aid by individuals the' city has aid 7,632 square feet in the illeys between the stores. In addition to the grading of he sidewalks, a great deal of work has been done by the street force on the streets and many 'uprovements male. The con lition at the beginning of a new /ear is tne cause or congratula tions on the part of the people of (\1p2loand with the advent of spring and other work that is >eing carried on the town will >resent a very different appear mce from a year ago. While there was some opposi don to begin with there is now nt complaint as the great benefits vre being realized. The work 11s been done well and we ex tend our congratulations to out •ity fathers for their foresight ind perseverance in getting sc nuch accomplished during the /ear 1909. A Message to Farmers. A great deal of interest has teen manifested, editorially and otherwise, throughout the South n the coming tour of Dr. Sea nan A. Knapp, of the Depart nent of Agriculture in January, md many inquiries have been re I teived by him asking what topics le will discuss on this Journey. Dr. Knapp has very kindly con sented to furnish the press, and hrough the presg the farmers, vith the subjects of his iddresses. At West Point, Mississippi, vhere he will speak on January 18th, at the Court House ^at 2 p. m., his subject will be‘‘Dlver sified Farming Adapted to Con ditions in Easterp Mississippi,” ! 1 rt tV UiaVi Tl r 111 Vv a /Haaiiaa a<*1 a IW ' M lit V Miuwuuuvu i tiv general problems of diversified farming and the greater profit to be realized from it. The same general method will be pursued in the addresses in the several states, outlining in each such policies as are most important and applicable to, the rural population. Let's Do Better in 1910. The average Mississippi farm er buys canned and dried fruits, likewise canned and dried other goods. He gets up at the alarm of a Connecticut clock, fastens his suspenders made in Chicago to his Detroit overalls, washes his face with Cincinnati soap in a Pennsylvania vyaghpan," sits jjovyn \9 § $rand Rapids table and eats Indiana hominy fried in St. Joseph lard on a St. Louis stove. Then he puts a St. Louis bridle on a Tennessee mule fed on Iowa corn, and plows a farm covered by an Ohio papriffags with a Johp Deere plow. When bedtime comes he reads a chap ter from the Bible printed in Chicago, says a prayer written in Jerusalem, and crawls undei a blanket made in New Jersey, only to be kept awake by a Mis sisslppi dog, Which is about th< , only homeRaised product on th( place /.

Respectfully submitted, E. F. Noel, Qovernor. The Women In Politics. Rev. C. R Nesbitt, a Presby terian minister of Nashville, on Sunday delivered before hi§ con gregation an interesting sermon on, “Woman in Politics.” Among other things he said: “When a good woman is led in to the advocacy of a measure and that measure is made a political issue, nndpr thp hpnt and nnscinn of political debate, she is caught up and carried on. She is will ing to sacrifice everything—the friendships of years’ standing and the traditions un^v which she was rear.§dv to carry the day I for hfcr. idea or the individual. “It has always been true that when a woman goes into poli tics, moved by sentiment 'rather than judgment, she sees onb one side.” Ginners Report.
