picture is being presented. Mr.
Herrington has corrected the ob
jectionable feature that so many
complain of as injurious to the
eyes, and when his device has
been adopted by all the movies,
which will be done as soon as
they can secure it, the glimmer
will be entirely done away with.
The writer has witnessed the
operation of Mr. Herrington’s

Cupid Invades Postoffice
During the past week cupid
invaded Uncle Sam’s realm at
the local postoffice and succeeded
in converting two of the em
ployees into happy benedicts.
The first victim to succumb to
his dart was Leland Epting, who
having secured the necessarv li
cense, repaired with his bride-to
be, Miss Annie Lynn Lawson to
the Methodist parsonage where
Rev. 0 VV. Bradley soon said
the words that joined them to
gether as husband and wife.
The same evening Mr. Ralph
M. Reese also duly armed with
the necessary authority from the
State of Mississippi, repaired to
the home of hia hridp to hp Miaa
Laverne Merritt, where Rev.
Cloar of the Baptist church soon
joined the happy twain together
in the presence of the family and
a few intimate friends
Miss Lawson is the daughter of
Mrs. J. M. Lawson and is a pi
quant blond who has had many
admirers since her childhood.
Miss Merritt is the daughter of
Mr. and Mrs. R L. Merritt and
is one of Tupelo’s pretty and at
tractive girls.
Messrs Reese and Epting have
held positions at the postoffice
for a number of years and their
popularity is limited only by the
number of their acquaintances.
May they live long and prosper.
Fall Vegetables
The entry of JJtrs. J. S. Yates
from her garden of fall vegeta
bles attracted, we may truthful
ly say, more atteniion than any
one entry during the Lee county
fair. Mrs. Yates had twenty
seven varieties of vegetables on
display and they were all of the
finest quality.
The collection included many
things that most of us never at
tempt to have in the fall, but
Mrs. Yates proved conclusively
that they could be grown very
successfully here notwithstand
ing the dry weather. The veg
etables were raised without being
watered but through a successive
system of working the soil and
keeping the moisture in the
Those on display were: Irish
and sweet potatoes, beets, car
rots, cabbage, collards, butter
beans, lettuce, salsify, sweet and
hot peppers, turnips, eschallots,
radishes, parsley, spinach, cu
cumbers, egg plants, English
uuu, uiuotai u, uuiuuo,
beans, tomatoes and squash.
At the home of the bride in
Guntown Tuesday morning Miss
Mabel Huey Mitchell was mar
ried to Mr. Robert Ogden Jones,
Jr., of Hattiesburg, Miss., the
ceremony being said by Rev- M.
H. Armour of the Christian
The bride is the daughter of
Captain and Mrs. L. A. Mitchell
and possesses all the attributes
that go to make Southern, wo
men attractive. Possessed of
high intellectual qualities she
has been a social favorite since
her entrance into society, and is
admired by all who know her.
The bridegroom is one of the
leading young business men of
Hattiesburg and stands high in
business circles.
The bridal party left over the
M. & 0. north for points East
where they will spend several
weeks before returning to Hat
tiesburg where they will make
their home.
Lee County Hogs
Lee county’s leading breeder
of the large bone Poland China
hog, B. F. Ballard, had his usual
success at the Tri-State fair in
Memphis where he captured
some good prizes. He secured
the first and junior champion
boar, second aged boar and fourth
aged sow. The boar that won
the grand championship was also
raised by Mr. Ballard and sold to
its owner. In addition to the
prizes won, Mr. Ballard sold one
one year old gilt for $50; one ten
months old gilt for $60; one two
year old boar for $125; one
eighteen months old boar for
$170, and three aged sows for
$495, and pigs enough to make a
total of $1,238.50.
The entries of Mr. Ballard in
the Lee county fair also were
winners. He will enter his hogs
both at Meridian and Jackson.
Thursday afternoon the 12th
inst., Miss Ida Leopard was
quietly married to Mr. Frank M.
Burton, the ceremony being said
by Rev. J. D. Hunter. A tinge
of romance was injected into the
match from the fact that the
family of the bride was on the
eve of moving west and with thi
prospect of being separated from
his affiance brought Mr. Burton
to a very serious mood and he
got busy in bringing the affair to
a close. Securing the license he
called in Brother Hunter who
soon joined thfeir hearts and
hands for life.

Fair a Success
The most successful fair that
Lee county or North Miss, has
ever seen came to an end Friday.
October 13th. Too much can not;
be said about this fair as it was
the most successful one that we
have ever had. The business
men of Tupelo are behind the or
ganization which ensures its suc
cess. The fair property is owned
by the city and is now and will
be kept in a high state of im
provement. New barns have
been built and the exhibit and
floral hali practically remodeled
and the entire grounds put in
first class condition.
The entire premises have been
whitewashed and the grounds
are the best in the entire State,
being practically in the business
district and only a very short
walk from each railroad termin
al. There were so many special
exhibits that it is hard to men
tion any one individually, how
ever. the booth and exhibit of
the Standard Oil Company was
one of the best on the grounds.
The exhibit was under the su
pervision of Mr. Watson and nu-Ji
merous prizes were offered by
them in guessing the attendance
each day. The lucky ones in
guessing were Miss Christine
Kennedy, Mrs. F. M. Hudson.
Miss Ethel High, Miss Florence
Wiley, Miss Mildred McCord and
Mrs. John McCullar.
Attention has been called
through these colums in last
week’s issue as to the exhibits
of the corn clubs, canning clubs,
and agricultural shows. The
carnival was first class in every '
respect and is a distinct credit to |
the fair. Contracts were made'
for a flying machine, and so ad
vertised extensively, but on Mon
day night at 7 o’clock a telegram
was received from the flying
people advising that they could
not fill thei- dates. While this
was a disappointment it is no
fault of the Association and no
fair minded person will hold the I
fair responsible for the failure
of the flying machine.
Let us all get together individ
ually and collectively and put on
the biggest and best fair that
