J. W. Prather reports a fine Sun

accompany Mr. Prather, but a case of
sudden illness prevented. The next

is expected.

catchy and all the actors did their
parts in good style.
The honor conferred on L. S. Per

R. E. McKinney stopped to spend
a day at Sslmer on his, way from
Memphis' to Henderson Saturday.
He was accompanied by his daugh

yet knows them and can in some

This (Wednesday) morning the

indication of a great blessing is
comine to this whole legion. So
mote it be While at Corinth
last Friday we had the pleasure
of visitingGish's big store , and
seeing what he is doing in his
great July Clearance Sale. He
is getting big results in large
sales at the cut prices, which are
a reality. Send for what you

Mississippi penitentiary seems to

It seems there is some hitch in

Sweat's barbecue on the 4th was

a few hundred new subscribers
but have no premiums to give,
but offer the subscriber the worth
of his money in a clean, live,

can keep abreast of the times
and not read and pay for his
county paper.. The financial
report of the county Monday
shows that an indebtedness of
several thousand dollars must be
met by the present year's taxes.

"TheUFEofa wagon is what counts
that's why I buy a Studebaker"
i matter
'.'That's reasonable, isn't it?"
"A wagon that doesn't last is expensive no
what price you pay for it
"Suppose you buy three wagons, one after the
other, and the three of them don't last as long as one
Studebaker which is the best bargain?"
" didn't find tliia out myelf. I heard my grandfather ay it -
good many year. ago. He (aid he had proved that it paid to buy
Studebaker. 1 followed hi. advice to my own satisfaction.'
"A wagon can't have life in it unles it ha. tho material and
work and finish in it. The Studebaker peoplo have been making
vehicle, for .ixty yeai They ought to know how to make wagon,
right and they do. They have the reputation because they've
produced the good. They don't put the name Studebaker on
until the wagon', right, and when you M the name Studebaker
on a vehicle of any kind it i your inaurance of quality."
"That, why I buy a Studebaker. I trurt a Studebaker wagon
because I trust the people that make them. it', good busineaa.
"A Studebaker promise i. alway. made good."
