Cloys, of Union City, who had charge of the swine and sheep department at .the Tri State Fair, Memphis, came to Tupelo at the request of the managers to judge the agricultu ral exhibits. 'In conversation With the wri ter, Mr. Cloys gave his experi ence with a car load of hogs bought in Mississippi on March 7th'. The car contained 236 hogs and cost $957 delivered at Union City. On August 6th he sold 85 head that brought him $1811, which paid for the cost of the entire lot and the cost of their feed to that time. These hogs had had the run of a 50 acre clover field and had been fed a thousand bushels of. corn worth 80 cents. From this clover field he cut U> tons to the acre. There v ere 85 pigs came which increased his numbers. Of the entire lot he lost 22 head. The second car he sold brought $2050. He now has 159 hogs left. His neighbor, Robert Wade, of Reeves,Tenn., handled 3000 Mississippi hogs and has cleaned up a profit of $20,000 on the lot. Now, the above is some hog story, but nothing offers the op portunity at this time that hogs and cattle offer for good profits. The interest at our fair iast week should satisfy the most skepti cal, if any there still be, in the possibilities in this county for those who turn their attention to hog and cattle raising. Accidentally Killed Eldridge Satterwhite, colored, the 15 year old son of Simpson Satterwhite, accidentally shot himself Monday evening on the farm of Rube Brookshier, a mile south of Beldon, while hunting rabbits. The poung negro was alone and seated himself on a log with the gun bv his side. When he saw the rabbit he pull ed the gun toward him and the hammer striking the log fired a wolley of shot into his bowels. An hour afterwards parties pass ing heard his calls and went to his relief. He was taken to Bol den where Drs. Nash and Caruth examined him, but his condition was such that the physicians could only relieve his sufferings. He lingered until twelve o’clock when he aiea. * Federal Reserve j Service Your checks when drawn on this bank are payable through any Federal Reserve Bank in the United States.

One instance, an old gentleman’s buggy was knocked in a ditch and the dri ver did not even stop to inquire if he was hurt or to see what damage had been done. There seems to be considerable negli gence on the part of many auto mobile drivers in failing to blow their horn or to keep a horn on their cars and sound it in passing or coming up behind a vehicle. ; The law requires this to be done and also to drive not faster than eight miles an hour in passing. That is very slow, nevertheless, I there must be some precaution ! taken to guard against danger in I passing and the legislature fixed ! that speed as in its judgment j safest for both parties in pass ing. A great many complain that automobile owners do not give i i /» . i i une nan me ruau as requireu uy law. Now, this complaint can be made against a great many people who also drive vehicles. They get in the middle of the road and turn a deaf ear to honks of the car, which is not right. Both parties are entitled to the same consideration on the road and the laws of the road should be rigidly observed. It should be a case of give and take and due regard had for the right of everybody, Unless this con sideration is shown we are going to have some bad accidents that may cost the lives of some in nocent people. Now is the time to resolve to be careful in passing whether you drive a car, a horse or a mule. Program For Health Day in the Tupelo public schools, Oct. 27, at 1:30 p. m., at the opera house.

There is no more important subject than public health. A man’s health is his capital. On this depends his dividends, it matters not who he is or what profession he follows. The im portance of a knowledge of itm laws of hygiene and sanitation cannot he stressed too much. No factor effects the child’s welfare more than nis health. Healthy children are teachable children. Quite a number of the backward children have some physical de fect that should be looked after at once.

McGaughey, of Net tleton, and owned by Dr. Dabbs, at Shannon, won over seven en tries in his class, five of them be ing from out of the state, one each from Oklahoma, Kentucky, Tennessee, Alabama and Indi ana. at the Lee county fair last week. Dr. L 0. Ciruth also caDtured one of the prizes with a black Angus bull raised in Pontotoc county. Every entry that Mississip ' cattle make in foreign or sta exhibits goes to prove the sup | riority of Mississippi raised cat | tie. The climate, the character of our food products all go to the advantage of Mississippi raised cattle. The Hereford, headed by old Old Point Comfort, the famous M ' ceicoi nm Knll Atirnnr] Kir W T Davis & Son, of Jackson, have forged to the front as the leading beef breed of cattle and its pop ularity is spreading. While the above entries were awarded pre miums there were many other entries of high class animals in these classes. The exhibits brought together many animals that proved to be a revelation in cattle breeding in Lee county. Football November Third The annual game of football between the University of Miss issippi and the A. & M. College will take place on our local grounds on the afternoon of Fri day, November the 3rd. The line up this year gives the University a much stronger team than last year which has been demonstrated by two successive winnings already over two Ark ansas teams—the Jonesboro Ag gies and the Hendrix College teams, both games were won by big scores. The agricultural, College, in its line up has seven of its old men playing with Schwill as full back who played fine ball last year. Frank Walton is the local rep resentative of the team and is advertising the game extensive ly, The probability is that the girls from the Industrial Insti tute & College will attend and the game will be witnessed bv the largest crowd everpresent at a football game in the state. The A. & M. won the past week over Chattanooga,Tenn.,33 to 0. Both teams are getting in fine shape and those who witness the game here this year will see a game worth going miles to see. P. D.
