TUPELO, MISS., NOV. 22, 1912
The announcement of the resig
nation of Assistant Attorney
General Claude Clayton came as
a distinct surprise to his friends
here who were unaware that he
contemplated such a step. Mr.
Clayton assigns as his reason
that he had longed for some
months to return to Tupelo ai d

law. During the eleven months
Mr. Clayton has served in the
Attorney General’s office he has
industriously prosecuted the work
assigned him in the different de
partments and made for himself
an enviable record.
It was his duty to appear for
the state before the Supreme
Court, and in matters affecting
the public interest before the
Railroad Commission, the Com
missioner of Agriculture and the
department of Education, where
legal services were necessary,
Mr. Clayton appeared.
Mr. Clayton assiduously ap
plied himself and in all cases
where his advice was sought his
counsel was in harmony with the
decisions of the court and he
gave a clear cut interpretation
of those statutes which had not
been passed on.
His friends here hope to see
him enjoy a lucrative practice.

Before leaving on his- vacation
to be spent on the Bermudas,
President-elect Wilson declared
that he would call an extra ses
sion of congress about the 15th
of Ap il next. Gov. Wilson de

the country to let them know
what steps would be taken by

We received by mail a sample
lot of doughnuts made from cot
ton seed meal with the compli
ments of the Cotton Seed Crush
ers Association. The advent of
cotton seed into the realm of hu
man food is no surprise to those
who have watched the progress
which has been made in the util
ization of cotton seed oil and
cake. The lower animals revel
in its succulent and nutritious el
ements and thrive on it. The oil
has for many years been em
ployed as human food and many
housewives have adopted it to
the exclusion of lard. The favor
won by this great Southern plant
has come through regular pro
cesses since the Civil War. At
one time cotton seed were under
the ban except as seed for grown
plants Back in the fifties a very
wise Mississippi legislature
passed a bill making it a misde
meanor for a farmer to leave his
seed lying loose around the
place. This bill w as a hygienic
measure and was intended to
protect the families and tenants
of the slothful. Strange it is
now that the fertilizing value
was rot discovered irom me
good patches of corn and cotton
that grew next to the old fash
ioned gin houses where the seed
were left to decay.
Since that time cotton seed has
become the principal and most
valuable element in fertilizers

I have certainly had a terrible
fall, but it might have been
worse. Suppose that instead of
getting eight electoral votes I
had gotten none at all. Then, I
would have been everlastingly
disgraced. Then suppose that
horrid, hateful old Teddy had
been elected instead of Professor
Wilson, then I would have felt
like crawling into a hole.

Notwithstanding the heavy re
ceipts of the past week in*the
cotton markets, the spot market
has shown a steady advance and
judging by the tone of the mar
ket it is now evident that the
manufacturers believe that the
crop will be shorter than was an

that there is no cotton at the gins
nor stored on the farms.

Baking Powder;
Purity in food, lower cost of living—
these are the demands of the day. ;
Pure food is health, and health is economy
itself. We cannot have health without health- ,
ful food.
The most healthful foods are the quickly \
raised flour foods — biscuit, cake, muffins,
crusts and other pastry, when perfectly made
from wholesome ingredients.
Dr. PRICE’S baking powder makes these
foods in specially attractive, appetizing and
wholesome form, and for both economic and
hygienic reasons, such food should be more
largely substituted for meat in the daily diet.
But bear in mind that alum, or
unwholesome baking powder,
can never make pure, whole
some food.

/^OLUMBUS would never have discovered America, if he hadn’t
^ been persistent and confident-it was only after years of pleading
that he was finally fitted out with three small vessels, and a New
World was put on the map.
Now, we’ve been talking STYLEPLUS to you for quite a while, and we propose
to keep it up—we’re confident that STYLEPLuS CLOTHES are right, the best
quality and the most value this country has ever seen in clothing at a medium price.
AVe re confident that sooner or later you 11 come round to our way of thinking,
that when you buy your first suit of
H " The same price the world over ”
you’ll have such a pleasant surprise that you’ll really wonder how in the world you
could have passed up these “good things so long.
Of course, what is past can’t be undone-but we know you’ll stop paying some other dealer $20
to $25 for your clothes-you’ll realize that keeping in your own pocket that difference of $3 to $8 in cold
cash will do you a heap more good than if handed over to that dealer.
Call in some day soon and look over our new Fall models of STYLEPLLS Suits and Overcoats,
every garment guaranteed by the makers--we feel confident that a try-on and a look in the glass will
make you as strong for STYLEPLiUS as we are.
No other store in town but ours sells STYLE
