ESTABLISHED 104. Yalobusha County Miss. 1907. THURSDAY, FEB. 7____ ""-~ niPripfln The days are kv~m favor of true summer—tbrriotism, and as sure for a save a great country his po is a correct one, A large standing army is unnecessary where love of country ranks so high in the heart of the American citizen as it does. It may be, as some one said, the Philippies gives us the key to the situation; they also will give us the key to more trouble than we are able to take care of comfortably: “They are howling at Washing ton for more army and navy, more money to fortify the Pacific coast to cut off imaginary enemies and / more for fortifications in the blessed Philippines. The best thing to do with these islands is to give them away to the first man who comes along with a “yaller dog he wants to swap. Then bring home the army that has been engaged in killing savages and dying itself of diseased livers, discharge it into the productive industries and here after keep a standing army of not over 20,000. That’s enough to guard forts and police the country. If we should have a real war the people may be depended on to volunteer to fight it and quit after the trouble is over. Give the money saved from all these re trenchments to agricultural experi ment stations and farm colleges where it will do some good.” --♦ Messrs. Gordon Gillespie and Edgar Jamison were down from the University and spent Friday and Saturday. Mr. Ben Davis was down from Oxford- and spent Sunday with friends in the city. -—♦-->*» Miss Bertha Clower, who has been residing in our city for the past two years with her sister Mrs. Shine, left last week to make her home with her sister in Hatties burg. v Death of Mrs. Barry.
