"Mike" Conner is hitting straight from the shoulder in dealing with Bilbo in his campaign. In the course of a recent address he said that he l was forced to apologize for mention- ing the name of the former governor, but said that the time has come to take the "Bill" out of Bilbo, and that when the call of decency and clean government demanded it, he is willing to skin an asylum skunk and to pick the feathers out of a jail bird.

The highest primary vote ever cast in a Democratic pri- mary in Mississi.vpi was in the run-oft race between Stephens and Vardaman in 1922. In that primary there were 180,084 votes east, 95,311 being for Stephens and 86,153 being for Vat. daman.--Gloster Record. Sometimes the editor of a paper is criticised because some legitimate item of news has been omitted. The critics do not stop to remember that an editor is humanthat the Lord has only blessed him with one pair of eyes, with a like number of ears, with one tongue, two hands and a couple of feet, and that he is not even gifted with second sight. Add to that the limitation of only being a]51e to be in one place at a time, and you have a fair conception of the average editorjust a plain citizen like yourself. If you have a legiti. mate piece of news the editor of this paper will be sure to hear of it if you tell him. The other fellow may forget to do so.Yazoo Sentinel. o- And what has become of the old fashioned car driver who used to dim his glaring headlights when passing another auto Two or three years ago huge sums of money were spent in buying new lenses which were sup- posed to prevent glare. Every car had to be equipped with the new lense and it eerteinty sounded like a sensible idea. It worked satisfae. tortly to a degree, but the idea saems to lave been lost ght of. Headlights are more glaring than ever, and the custom of dimming has become a ost art.--Hattiesburg Citizen. The car driver who dims his lights now is rapidly gaining a place among those who are gone and forgotten. It is out of style to "dim" in this day nd time so why this discussion? Shut your eyes and get out of the I road, is the order of the day. t If you ----to do overnor Rus.,t sell's bidding just go to the polls and cast your bllot or Frankfin for governor; Robertson for revenue agent, and" Bond for superintendentl of education, if Fanklin is elected I you must know what influence the] present governor will have with his ] successor If we are to judge b the past, this infuence will notbe for the good of our state. If Robertson h elected we may "expect to see new industries (whicWgive employment to our labor and help build up the state) fight shy of Mi.%issippi, and the pres- ent recumbent wiL[ continue to pull down a salary practically equal to that of the president of the United Stata If Bond is re-elected state of education, by you keep your mouth shut the high cost of school books and always wear a smile while dig- ANNOUNCEMENT of Interest to MILLIONS of FAMILIES "1 will buiid a oar for the mulHtue" Said Henry Ford in 1903--Read how the fulfillment of that vrophecy i now made poibla through the Ford Weekly Purchase Plan For many years it has been Henry Ford's per. sonal ambition to make the Ford the universal car --to put it within the reach of the millions of people who have never been privileged to enjoy the bee fits of motor car ownership. During the past fifteen years over 7,500,000 Ford ears have been placed in the hands of retail customers--more than a millilon and a half of them within the past twelve months---and yet there are still millions of families who are hopefully looking forward to the day when they can own a Ford. And now the way is open. Under the terms of this plan you can select your Ford Car, set aside a small amount each week and you will be surprised how soon you will own it. In the meantime your money will be safely deposited to your credit where it will draw interest. Think it over. Five dollars will start an account. The whole family can participate in it- father, mother, brothcrs and sisters each doing a little. Why not start today. Stop in and talk it over with your local Ford dealer. He will be glad to fully explain the details of the plan and help you get started toward the ownership ofa Ford ea. Ford Motor Company, WOODVILLr M010R £0. THOS. A. ROLAND, JR., Manager.
