We are in receipt of a letter from a subscriber to the Weekly Sun, patron for several years, offering to send us one dollar for the paper an other year if we will send him a 75c or SI pocket knife.

But, thank God, men of this calibre are but few. Most people have realized long ago that it takes a lot of hard cash to run a newspaper and the newspaper man is not worried with 0e class that a few years ago made it a rule to pay their subscription in pumpkins, persimmons and promises.

LOCAL BOARD FOR GREENE COUNTY. Former Citizen Dies at Home In Mississippi Greeneville citizens were shocked to learn of the death of Mr. E. D. Self, at his home, Meridian, Miss., Sunday afternoon. Davis Self was born and reared to manhood in Greeneville. Some twenty years ago he removed to Mis sissippi, where he married. His first wife died about twelve years ago. To this first union three children were born. He was married the second time about ten years ago, and to this last union two cildren were born, his last wife and all the children surviv ing him. Mr. Self was 52 years of age. He was a son of the late Rev. W. F. Self. His last visit to his old home was only a few weeks ago, when he ac companied the remains of his aged father here for burial. On account of the press of important business at that time, he was unable to spend but a few hours here, and as a result did not get to see many of jhis old associates, acquaintances and friends For a number of years Mr. Self had been district manager in Mis sissippi for a big insurance company, Since the outbreak of the war he has devoted much time to wark work and at the time of his death he was Fed eral labor agent for his district. He was a man that made friends easily and had the happy faculty of retain ing them. He will be greatly missed by the people of Meridian and that section of Mississippi where he was best known. Interment took place in Meridian Monday afternoon by the side of his first wife.
