VOL, W TUPELO MISS. MARCH 7,1913 NO. 50 _ _—.. .a 31 1 -— - ■ 111 ' I Call for the Children. The Tupelo high school is well equipped for the entertainment of the boys and girls of the high school. Basket ball, foot ball, shot put, hammer throwing, hurdling, high jump and races are provided for the older pupils, and the school is well equipped with all the necessary items for the playing of these games. The little fellows are not provided with anything of a similar char acter, but must content them selves to look on and get their enjoyment from seeing the games of the other pupils. Prof. Windham has called our atten tion to this inequality and we are going to make an appeal to the patrons and friends of the school to come forward with enough money to buy all the f playthings the little fellows need. It is too much trouble to make a personal canvass asking for the funds necessary, and we are go ing to open a popular subscrip • tion and ask that you come ior ward and give whatever you feel able to give to this cause. It should be a pleasure to get close to these little fellows with a sub scription and we want to hear from you promptly. The Journal opens the subscription. Who will be the next ?

S. Vincent, Observer. Largest Side-wheeler In The World The new side-wheel steamer “S eeandbee, ” which will be placed in service between Cleve land and Buffalo this year, will be the largest and most luxurious passenger steamer on the Great Lakes and the largest side-wheel er in the world. A picture of the vessel appears in the March Popular Mechanics Magazine. The length on deck will be 500 ft., and the breadth on deck 96 1-2 ft. The main propellin engines, which are of 12,000 hp., will drive feathering peddle wheels 32 ft. in diameter. These wheels, turning at only 30 revo lutions per minute, will drive the vessel at a speed of 22 miles an hour. The reason why side-wheel propulsion is adopted for such a large ship is that this system af fords the maximum comfort for the passengers, the vibration be ing negligible. The “Seeandbee” has state room accommodation for 1,500 passengers, and will have a government permit to carry about 6,000. A classified ad. will bring results. Board of Supervisors meet.

Silos For The Farm. Atlanta, Ga., February. 26th, — How the average far ", us ing ordinary farm tools. an expense of only $65.00 ca. con struct a silo with a capacity of I 55 tons—enough sfiagej to feed 20 cows 40 pounds per day for four months—is told in a booklet just gotten out by the Live Stock | Department of the , Southern : Railway, a copy of which will be ' mailed free to any farmer ad dressing request for same to Mr. F. TL. Word, live stock agent, Southern Railway Bldg., Atlan ta, Ga. ■"Where there is Live Stock on the Farm There Should be a Si lo” is the title of this booklet which tells of the advantage to the farmer having a silo and the great saving which it enables him to make in the cost of win ter feeding for his live stock. The figures given are taken from the practical experience of a Tennessee farmer who built a silo on the lines indicated twenty years ago, who finds it as good as new to-day, and feels that it J has paid for itself many times over every year. Secretary of Agriculture Wil son has recently declared that the Southeastern states consti tute the ideal section of the United States for live stock raising and must be looked to in future years for the nation s food supply. To stimulate inter est in the live stock industry and to aid farmers to successfully fol low this line, the Southern Rail way has established its Live Stock Department which is giv ing undivided attention to this work.
