" Senator Leroy Percy spoke to ine* audiences at every appoint nent during the week and there s no doubt of his being in the ■un off in the second primary. How can you reconcile your ;onscience,your duty to yourself, ind vote for Bilbo? llo not dis grace the State and yourself by Iasting a ballot for such a man. The Senate, on Saturday, pas ed the reciprocity bill by a vote f 54 to 27. The democrats stood y the President and saved him rom defeat at the hands of his mn party. The Mississippi Bank & iVust Jo,, of Jackson, the bank which gained so much notoriety in con lection with Governor Varda man's deposit of state funds to nis credit there, failed the past week. It had been suggested fthat the bank closed its doors for the purpose of evading the I aw officers who are endeavoring !o have the books shown, with he hope that after the primaries he doors could be re opened for business. The condition of the iank, however, seems to be in such shape that there is no likeli hood that it can resume business. Ihe records speak for them selves. Major Vardaman made them himself and must stand or fall by them. They are against him and by them he will go down in defeat. The article appearing in the Issue of last week from Major Vardaman, directing how you shall vote, is a reflection on your good sense and every intelligent voter should resent this pre sumption. * ! JAMES L. GILLESPIE. ’Land Commissioner, Indorsed by Uemocrauc Executive Com. The Democratic Executive Committee of Leflore County, at its meeting held in Greenwood June 26, 1911, unanimousiy - adopted the following resolution [indorsing James L. Gillespie for i State Land Commissioner: “Resolved, That the Leflore County Democratic Executive Committee views with keen sat isfaction the splendid record of Hon. J. L Gillespie, as State Land Commissioner. When he was appointed by Governor Noel we were all assured that the state would have one of the best officers that has ever served the people. We have known Jim ■Gillespie over a score of years, and he has always made good, I just as he is doing now, and we heartily commend him to the good people of Mississippi, feel ing that they will indorse by electing him on Aug. 1st.” S. L. GWIN, Chairman. Notice to Creditors. Letters of administration having this day been issued to Z. T. Harper on the estate of Miss Ella K Hollimon. notice is hereby given to all persons having any claims against the said estate that the same must be probated and registered by the clerk of the Chancery court of Lee county, Mis sissippi, within one year from this date: and failure to have said claims probated and regis tered according to law within said time will for ever bar said claims. This 24th day of July 1911. ever Dar saiu ^ T H.RpER Administrator. Clayton, Mitchell & Clayton, Sols, for Adminis trate* 18-6t HOW SHALL WE VOTE? 71 - \ On Tuesday next the great battle of ballots will be fought in the state and the question of who shall serve the people will be reduced to two candidates. In weeding out the can didates we shouid have a conscientious regard for the welfare of the state and county and select only those candidates that represent the best type of citizenship. In choosing for county officers, we have a personal ac quaintance with each candidate and can therefore determine through this acquaintanceship who would best serve the peo plein our local offices. The governor of the state has been nominated. Mr. Brew i er receiving the unparalled honor of having the nomination go to him without opposition, a distinction most worthily be stowed. In the matter of selecting a candidate for the Senate, there is greater difficulty in making a choice. For the Senate we have three candidates from which to choose. We find in two of them men whose public records speak in their behalf and the conservative voter could make no mistake in casting his ballot for either Mr. Percy or Mr. Alexander. The former is; the present Senator and during the short time he has served, he has made a record that has proven him to be a legislator of great ability and one able to cope in legislative matters w ith the ablest men in the Senate. Mr. Alexander has a character above reproach and his record as a citizen and a man is sec ond to no one in Mississippi. The third candidate, Major Vardaman, also has a record as a private citizen and a public official. As a private citizen his neighbors know him and a majority of them refuse to vote for and support him. As a public official the records show that he has been unfaithful to every public trust and that at no time has he kept his promises to the people. With this rec ord he goes before the people again, asking for their support. Can you vote for him is a matter that you must determine for yourself and in doing so, you must remember that upon your action may depend the disgrace of Mississippi in sending a man to the Senate who is unworthy a seat in that august body. Answer This Question, Mr. Voter! The books of the Mississippi Bank & Trust Co., of Jack son, which has just gone into the hands of a receiver, (probably on account of its dealings with Vardaman,) would demonstrate whether Vardaman while governor embezzled the public funds. Why haven’t the books of this bank been shown? Answer: Because its officers, who are ardent Vardaman men, enjoined in the chancery court of Hinds county public ac countant Moore from making the examination. The bank would have shown the books if Vardaman had agreed to it. Why did he not agree to it? Answer that question, Mr. Vo ter. Do you want to set the example to your son and the oth er youth of the state of endorsing such a man for the highest office in the gift of the people? If that is your idea of your duty how do you expect your son to be honest and patriotic? Another question: Mr. Vardaman says Gov. Noel wants the books examined for political reasons. How would it fur nish Mr. Noel campaign argument if the books are correct? SHOW THE BOOKS! WHAT BOOKS? The Banks in Jackson which kept the Contingent Fund, the Battleship Fund, the Spanish War Fund, and the Bryan Fund. Private Accounts? No!!! An account containipg the taxpay er’s money is not a private account. WHO? Ex-Governor Vardaman. The Banks would make the showing. Ex-Governor will not permit it. He who boasts that ‘‘he never had a secret from the people” is now alone standing between the taxpayers and ‘’the blessed sunlight of publicity.” wuv? Because thousands of taxpayers believe Ex-G >vernor Varda man mixed their funds with his own and used them, and had to be aided by his friends to raise what he did pay over. Because he failed to pay over the Spanish A rican w ar fund for months after leaving the Governor’s office, and failed to pay over the Bryan Fund for months afterwards, and failed to pay over the Battleship Fund until after he had borrowed $1700 and then paid it over after threats of an investigation, [and after re peated demands. Because he publicly promised his supporters in his caucus to clear up these matters. Because the books are the only way now of finding the facts. WHEN? NOW!! Before the primary. So you can KNOW when you vote. So you can vindicate Ex-Governor Vardaman IF the books show up clean, clear and straight. HOW? Show the books themselves. Books, not Denials!!! Books, not Affidavits! Books, not Epithets!! Books, not Oaths !! Books not Abuse!! think!! If the record is clean, why oppose their production? If not, you would expect REFUSAL, RESISTANCE, INJUNCTION. This is what you find. Ex-Governor Vardaman refused to show the books, and his bank enjoined the State’s own officer from ex amining them. What do you think? Answer at the polls.

CURIOUS BITS OF HISTORY By A. W. Macy. AN ALBINO KINO OF ENG LAND. It Is quite probable that Eng land once had an albino for a king. Edward the Confessor, who reigned from 1042 to 1066, Is said to havs had long hair and beard, both as white as snow. His skin was of a milky color, and hia face Inclined to roslnese. Hia hands were long and very white. An albino al ways has a skin of a milky hue, with hair of the same color, and eyes with deep red pupil and pink or blue Iris. These peculiarities are said to be' caused by a deficiency of cer- * tain coloring matter In the blood. The name albinos was first given, by the Portuguese to negroes they found on the African coast who were mot tled with white spots. Albinos are found, however, among all races of men, and also among some of the lower animals, as mice, elephants, etc. From the descriptions of King Edward’s personal appearance that have come down to us, ar.d which are evidently reliable, It Is rea sonably certain that he was an albino.
