FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 4, 1903.
that Monday, September 7th
be observed as Labor Day.
Major Yard am an has
been nominated in the dem
ocralic primary for Governor
of Mississippi. His election
is a foregone conclusion, and
his inaugural address will
doubtless, give the northern
press something to write
about. He is Southern to
the core and believes in
white man's government.
The farmers' institute
held here Monday, while no
largely attended, was enjoy
en. All who are interested
in agriculture would have
been benefited by the sensi
ble suggestions and valuable
information imparted. Es
pecially were the remarks o
the Commissioner of Agricul
ture, Mr. Ogilvie, Live Stock
Inspector, Mr. Kittrell, the
State Superintendent o
Public Instruction, Prof.
Mynders, instructive and in
tercsting, as well as the paper
read by Mr. John R. Black
on "Truck Farming," which
appears elsewhere in this is

institutes are held for the
farmers' benefit, and if they
will attend, they will not re

for canned goods, while its

the production is great

employment of men and

several different ways. Let

T" It 1
15UT ie.v, pernaps, are
aware of the fact that the
last legislature made an ap
propriation of 2,000 for re
pairing and improving the
road from Bolivar to the
"Western Hospital. The
committee on charitable in
stitutions recommended an
appropriation of $3,500
for thrs purpose, provided
the county of Hardeman
would give a like sum; but,
there was a change made in
the general appropriation
bill, and the Comptroller was
directed to draw his warrant
on the State Treasury for the
above amount for the purpose
named. The money is and
has been available for some
time and work should be
commenced as soon as pos
sible, before the winter season
sets in. The road ought to
be graded and graveled and
put in first class condition,
but of course, the amount ap
propriated is not sufficient to
do this. If the money is used
judiciously, however, and we
believe that it will be, it will
be sufficient for a start and
will lay the foundation.
Farther appropriations will
doubtless follow to complete
Saturday last about 500
people assembled at Piney
Grove to attend a barbecue.
The place is an ideal spot
for an occasion of such
character, situated as it is
upon an elevation, with an
abundance of shade and
spring of pure, cold water
that seems to be inexhaus
At noon, eighteen carcasses
and the contents of scores of
baskets and oxes were
spread upon a long table
erected under the trees.
ITT! . 1
wnen everything was in
readiness, G. W. Lambert,
the chief, announced dinner
and requested the ladies to
occupy one side of the table,
the gentlemen the other.
The crowd gathered, and
when all were in position,
Esquire J. J. Siler arose and
invoked a blessing. In
quiet and orderly manner all
present proceeded to enjoy a
feast, the like of which
seldom falls to the lot of
man. There was no elbow-
ing.no pushing, no rushing
there was room for ail and
an abundance for everybody.
The barbecue was well cook
1 t .
eu, juicy, seasoned to per-
iecnon ana tne aroma rising
from the pits was alone suf
ficient to whet the appetite
of even a sick man, to say
nothing of the many tempt
ing dainties the good women
of the community had pre
pared. All ate heartily and
everyone enjoyed it.
After dinner, the crowd
scattered over the hill and
rested under the shade of
the trees for an hour, the old
folks talking about crops,
the young folks about some
thing more interesting.
loout jl o clock it was
announced that Hon. A. J.
Coates would speak at the
church, and in a short time
the crowd gathered in the
comfortably seated building.
After musical selections, in
which the audience took part,
the speaker wis introduced
by Chief Lambert.
iur. coates remarks were
confined to Christianity and
education, which he said he
considered twin sisters and
the bed-rock of all good
citizenship. He spoke of
the great good that had been
accomplished by churches,
and especially by Piney
Grove Church, which is one
of the oldest in Hardeman
County, and one whose in
fluence has been actively ex
erted for more than half a
century. He alluded to the
change for the better in the
rals of the community,
attributing it to religion.
He said that education was
the hand-maid of religion,
essential and beneficial to
good citizenship, and he put
hiaiself upon record as fa
voring separate funds for the
education of the races the
axes paid by white people
o be applied to the education
of white people only, and the
taxes by negroes to be used
for the education of negroes
alone. The sentiment was
applauded and met with the!
approval of all present.
Alter Mr. Coates' speech,
remarks were made by Sena-
or J. C. Jackson, Messrs.
W. A. Ross and John Rush.
The day was pleasantly
pent and will long be re
membered. No more hos
pitable people live than those
of the Piney Grove neigh
borhood, to whom the editor
of the Bulletin desires to re
turn thanks for many courte

A Remarkable Record.
Chamberlain's Cough Remedy
has a remarkable record. It has
been in use for over thirty years,
during which time may million bot
tles have been sold aud used. It
has long been the standard and
main reliance in the treatment of
croup in thousands of homes, yet
during all this time no case has
ever been reported to the manufac
turer in which it failed to effect a
cure. When given as soon as
the child becomes hoarse or even as
soon as the croupy cough appears, it
will prevent the attack.' It is pleas
ant to take, many children like it.
It contains no opium or other
harmful substance and may be
given as confidently to a baby as to
an adult. For sale by Cox & Co.,

Jackson, Miss., Aug. 28. In
view of the confident claims made
by the Critz faction and the small
ness of the majority claimed by the
Vardaman faction prior to Thurs
day's primary, Major Vardaman's
splendid victory in the governor
ship contest assumes almost the
proportions of a landslide.
His majority will be between
8,000 and 10,000 when the complete
reports from remote interior
counties are received and this is
5,000 more than his campaign man
agers hoped or expected.
The defeat of Judge Critz and
the overwhelming victory of Varda
man is due to several causes, chief
of which was a desire on the part
of the people of Mississippi to show
their resentment of President
Roosevelt's attitude on the negro
