ness, by seriously considering laws
to correct the evil of which com
plaint is made. Some of these
will make an honest effort to give
to the farmer the same considera
tion that has long been shown
others.
The source from which opposi
tion has sprung, should readily
convince fair-minded people that
it was a fair and just solution of an
inequality that was richly deserv
ing of equalization.
No argument has been advanced
against it that has not been met
with a fair and convincing reply.
But what are the farmers doing
about it? Are they interested?
Hundreds of letters come to State
Department of Agriculture com
mending the suggestion, but are
you talking it to your neighbors?
It is now time for the farmers
themselves to begin agitating the
matter. Talk it to your neighbor,
Write an article to your home
newsbaper. Get the people suffi
ciently interested to seek informa
tion, and then be prepared to give
it to them.
Did you write tor the publica
tions cited last month? If not, get
the address and do it now. Be
ready to meet the argument that
may be advanced against it.
Ignore ridicule, sarcasm and
abuse.
These do not constitute argu
ment, and are not worthy of con
sideration.
When you have justice and right
on your side you are bound to be
successful.—The Bulletin, Jack
son, Miss,
Mr. and Mrs. J. E. Perkins of
east of Coffeeville, returned home
last Thursday after a few days’
visit to our city the gueet of Mrs,
George Perkins,
Mrs. S. D. Cotner and daughter,
Mrs. Susie Grohlson and three
children, left last Thursday for a
few days’ visit to Dubard.
Mr and Mrs John L. Chapman,
of Durant, returned home last
Thursday after a few days’ visit to
relatives and friends in our city.
Miss Dessie Bratton left last
Thursday for a few days’ visit to
her sister, Miss Lillian Bratton in
Taylor.
Mrs. E. K. Roper and little
daughter, Dorothy, returned home
last Thursday from a few days’
visit to Jackson, Tenn.
It is nothing but right that the
crap game should be surrendered
to the negro. It is his rightful
property, and it should not be ta
ken from him in an unceremonious
manner, If you are going to en
trench upon the negro’s gambling
ground he should at least be noti
fied and given time for evacuation
Two many insignificant criminal
cases are subject to appeal from
magistrates’ court. Delay, in the
administration of justice, is dan
gerons. Many a criminal hasgone
unwhipped because of the slow
process of the law. We are ma
king anarchists by temporizing
with crime—dealing tenderly with
offenses. Our sympathy frequent
ly outruns our judgment.
Lookout! Wheu you think you
are in position to receive the glad
hand for something that has de
lighted your soul, you may be
sadly fooled, for people differ very
materially upon what constitutes
ground for congratulation. Of
course this is disheartening to a
high degree, and if you do not suf
fer from it you will have to pre
pare before hand to meet it. No
boy or girl expects to receive the
glad hand upon the commission of
crime, however insignificant that
crme, but when they have done
the best they can, they do not ex
peot to be turned coldly down.
See all the good there is in your
children and they will make better
men and women. Our country
wants and needs good citizens, and
they have got to come from our
boys and girls.
