A. Critz, of West Point. When we were both much younger than we are now, we lived in the same town, and then his charactar as a gentle man and Christian, was unim peachable, and if ever he has cll3iig'<4> iv oi,vwrv the, informa tion has never reachecF^^^^s one of Mississippi’s distinguished sons—thoughtfuls^courageous and fruitful—eminentbj^qualified, both in heart and mind, for any position in which the people may place him. He is not what is termed a self willed man—not in any sense—but lie possesses firmness, and would not swerve in setting forth the courage of his conviction, on any and ail questions touching the in terest of his people. This has been his character from his youth up. Make him Governor of the great State of Mississippi, and the peo ple will never have cause to regret i their action.

It is right weary ing to hear a fellow tell how tired he is, without finding out about what made him tired. It does strain some people, during these campaign years, to find an engraft tion is: Who made the taxes high? It must have been the representa tives of the people. Please don’t put everything on one man! You don’t want to make it appear that one man is running the State. If you will elect first-class, pure men to represent you in every official position, these things, of which you complain, will be corrected, j My dear unsophisticated fellow citizens, it is not the man that can throw his hat the highest, hollow the loudest, or who tells the most vulgar yarns, that is the best man to represent you. Take the peacea ble, quiet, thoughtful man first every time, for he will certainly look to your interest. Symbathy is the most beautiful of all_ characteristics, and mbe usbdlTfevery point in life. Many people need it that never get it at all. If high taxes bring a correspond- | ing benefit upon their expenditure in developing high-grade public institutions, why, lpt them be high - —the city is just making an excel lent investment; but if the money derived from taxation is to be fool ed away—put to an indifferent use, then cut them down. The people must be able to see the results.
