City Administration Begins
New Year
TNe city administration begins
■ the new terth with but few
^charges in t’:e personnel. Mr.
’Robins begins his fifth terra at
mayor; Marshal Robertson be
fgins his 30th year as marshal;
.the board of aldermen is now
Tothposed of the following: S. P.
|Tlayton, first ward; F. C. Me*
jGaughy, Second ward; D. S.
;Ballard, third ward; R. H. Mul
aen, fourth ward, and C. R.
^Strain, city at large.
1 Owing to the fact that his
fheiUh would not admit of his
^longer remaining indoors, C. E.
Got dlett, who for the past eight
years has been city clerk of Tu
pelo, tendered his resignation to
the board to take effect imme
diately. Mr. Goodlett is excep
tionally qualified to hold the re
sponsible position that he has
held so acceptably to the people
of Tupelo and his retirement will
be regretted for many reasons.

bookkeeper, and the books of
tfye qity are models of neatness
and correctness. The annual
checking of the books by experts
always resulted in finding them
correct and well kept Mr.
Goodlett will leave soon for San
Angelo, Texas, where he will
remain during the winter to re
cuperate. His health requires
outdoor exercise and the climate
of southwest Texas affords an
opportisniiy that he could not
find whtre the weather is
changeable. He will leave pos
sibly semetime about the middle
of; this month, after the new
foitae in the office has been in
stalled and gets the harness on.
hie office of city clerk and
manager of the electric light
plaint have been separated. The
c ty clerk will continue to be
e epted by the people and will
receive only the fees which are
a iqwed hy law. The manager of
t ifei light plant will be elected by
me mayor and aldeimen and'his
salary fixed by them. At the
first meeting Tuesday night of
thej new administration, Hoyle
DJfeibs was elected to the position
of : manager. He is thoroughly
capable of discharging the very
important duties of this (osition
and;has already entered upon the
work. The board could not have
made a more popular selection,
and he will piove to the peoi le
that the seketion was wise. An
election has been ordered for the
15th of January to elect a suc
cessor to Mr. Goodlett. Mr. H.
A. Jones, who has been in the
mayor’s and clerk’s office for a
number of years, is a candidate
and will no doubt be elected
without opposition. He is thor
oughly familiar with all the de
fa It a nf th#» i nqitinn and will an.
ter upon the discharge of his
duties when elected with infor
mation he has acquired after
years of service in the mayor’s
office. His candidacy meeL with
general favor and the city ad
ministration will continue to
have a cltrk thoroughly trust
worthy and able to discharge the
duties of the position.
Mayfield Reese was elected
night police and Mack Crawford
will continue to operate the
street work, while H. T. Gray
will continue in hia present posi
tion as night watchman.
The new administration begins
wiih all of the affairs of the city
in first-class shape and we ex
pect a continuation of the pro
gressive policy which has brought
the city up to its present position
as the first town in the state.
We take this means of thank
ing the people of Macedonia for
the kindness they showed ua
during the recent illness of our
deceased wife, daughter, sister
and mother, Mrs. Lila Gregory.
May God shower his choicest
blessings upon you.

Says Vinol Creates Strength
Rosary Hill Home, Hawthorne, N. Y.
—“I have used Vinol for many run
down, weak or emaciated patients with
benefit. One young woman was so weak
and ill she could hardly creep to my door
for aid. I supplied Vinol to her liberally
and in a month I hardly recognized her.
She was strong, her color charming and
her cheeks rounded out.”—Mother M.

■•iuty of Pennsylvania.
In one reipect only Pennsylvania Is
unchanged and unchangeable. Men
have dealt harshly and shamefully by
her, but nature has crowned her with
beauty. Her founder, knowing noth
ing of his broad tracts, save that they
were forest lands, gave to the new
province the pretty name of Sylvanla.
and Charles II., always a postmaster
of words, prefixed the Penn, for which
pleasant conceit every sou and daugh
ter of the state owes him a grateful
thought. Thus the word Pennsylvania
perpetuates history, honors a noble
name and symbolizes the loveliness of
the land, a land of woods and waters,
hills and valleys, fat farms and rocky
solitudes. The shrieking engine that
drags its trainload of passengers
through the valley of the Juniata,
across ridge after ridge of the Alle
ghenies, past the Tuscarora gap and
the succession of narrows—Long Nar
rows, Jack’s Narrows, Packsaddl$
Narrows—has traversed a country so
widely and nobly beautiful that, In Eu
rope, it would attract the tourists of
the world.—Agnes Repplier in Ameri
can Magazine.
Sitting on a Tack.
A thing is tragic or humorous ac
cording to the point of view. The
man who sits on a tack does not share
the onlookers’ amusement In fact, he
is not only pained at his own misfor
tune, but he is pained because he oc
casioned some one else to find a de
gree of pleasure in his unseemly plight
Now, it is perfectly safe to make this
positive statement in this connection—
the pefson who witnessed the other’s
unfortunate encounter with the tack
never deliberately sits on the same
tack himself. Indeed, he is particu
larly cautious about sitting down any
where soon thereafter without looking
for a tack.
Nor 1b this an indictment of tacks.
Tacks serve a very real and , useful
purpose in this world, but they have
their place, which is not in localities
where they may be sat upon.—William
C. Lengel in Hoggson Magazine.
Caught Him Both Ways.
"I ask you to pay me this bill,” said
a tailor to a waggish debtor.
“Do you owe anybody anything?"
asked the wag.
“No, sir,” replied the tailor.
“Then you can afford to wait” And
off he walked.
A day or two afterward the tailor
called again. Our wag was not at his
wits’ end, so, turning to his creditor,
he said:
“Are you in debt to anybody?”
“Yes, sir, I am sorry to say I am.”
“Well, why don’t you pay?”
“I haven’t got the money,” replied
the tailor, with a woebegone counte
“That’s Just my case, my dear sir. I
am glad to perceive that you can ap
preciate my position. I always re
spected your Judgment, sir. Give me
L your band, slr.”--J,oudon Mail

Some Geographical Doublea.
Accidental doubles of geography are
very curious. There are the two total
ly unconnected Galicias, the one in
Austria-Hungary and the one in Spaiu.
As to the Carpathians, the doubling
occurs between the ancient and the
modern atlases. On the map of the
ancients we And a people named Carpi
in the north of what is no\y Hungary
and uorth of them the Carpatus moun
tains. But “Carpathian” in Vergil,
Horace and Ovid means something
quite different The Carpathian sea
was the sea between Rhodes and
ureie, irom tne island or carpatnus,
now Scarpanto, and the “Carpathian
old man” was Proteus, who lived and
no doubt practiced his quick change
tricks there-—London Spectator.
Fooled Hie Subjects.
King Erricws of Sweden publicly con
fessed that he was a sorcerer and ma
gician. He was the owner of an en
chanted cap, which he pretended en
abled him to control the spirits and
change the direction of the winds at
pleasure. So firmly did his subjects
believe in the supernatural powers of
their ruler that when a storm arose
they would exclaim, “Ah, the king is
again wearing the magic cap!"
What She Miaaea.
“I suppose you miss your husband
“No; 1 can’t say that I do. I was a
golf widow for years before he died,
but it does seem strange- not to have
him phone that he is going to be late
for dinner.”—Detroit Free Press.
