This term of court adjourned on Thursday after s session of over nine days. no court having been held on last Saturday. This is the firsl time in many years that a term of court in this county has extended be- yond the first week, and we hope that it will be as long at, sin before such an unusual thing will happen. REPORT OF GRAND JURY. To the Hen. R. L. Carbon, Judge of the Sixth Judicial District of the State of Mississippi: We your grand jury, empanneled and sworn for the October Term, 1923, for the Circuit Court of Wil- kinson county, beg leave to this, our final report. We have been in session five days examined 59 witnesses; found 1 true bills; dismissed 1" ease; contin- ued one case, and ignored 3 cases. We have examined the books of the county officers, including the Pen- sion Rolls, and find them neatly and accurately kept, posted as near to date as practicable, and all accounts balanced. We attach hereto the re. port of the chancery clerk as to the aecountz of the various justices of the peace. An inspection of the County Home showed its condition to be clean and sani_tary and inmates as well eared for s limited amount of per capita will allow. There is an insufficient amount of bedding for cold weather. that in ue being about worn out. New bedding should be provided. We find that there is urgent need of at lea. three new mattresses and bed- din: to o with them. We also sub- mit that $5.50 per capita, at the pres- ent higix cost of sunplies, provides only the simplest and barest necessi- ties. We therefore recommend that the allowance be increased to a mini- mum of $7.50 per capita. We find the county jail to be as clean and as weU kept as its condi- tion will permit. Its sanitary eondi. tion, however, ie bad end needs im. mediate attention. The interior walls, where broken, should be repaired at once, and the entire interior be given at least one coat of paint. We find that the county roads and brides are in as good condition as could be expected, weather conditions considered, except tha the bridge known as the Cory Bridge, on the Natchez road, is unsafe and should be repaired at once. We also recom- mend that the iron work on the Bur. falo River bridge near Fort Adams be scaled and painted as soon as pos- sible, as the rust is rapidly eating the iron away. We recommend that the heating plant in the court house be examined. In its present condition heat is not evenly distributed, so tha several parts of the building cannot be made comfortable. We believe that a few minor repairs will effect a saving of 20 per cent in the coal consmned. We wlso recommend that the carpets in the court room sad rotunda be taken out and thorouwly cleaned, and the floors washed. They are in "anything but a sanitary condition. We also call attention to the general unsani. tory condition of the court house as a whole, and urge that it be kept ele.ner and more sanitary. We understand that the Board of Supervisors, during 1920 paid the County Asseor a larger amount on dog taxes than he was lawfully en- titled to. We suggest that the Dis. trier Attorney look into the matter and fa'ke such action as he finds prop- er in te premises. We' examined tl,e Will:in son Coun- ty A. H. School and found it clean and well ket and the students being well cared for. We wish to thank Distrfct Attorney Bennett for the valuable assistance wich he has ven us, and also the sleriff and other county officers for their prompt atfention to our re- quests. Having performed the duties de- relying upon us to the best of our knowledee and ability, we ask to be filmily dhr'od. HARRY P. JONES, Foreman. i E. T. SMITH, Clerk. "Sky-scrapers shrink turing cold weather." says a h,dine in one of the daily papers. Well, w.y should we worry? Pccke books do the same thing, and we don't have any eky-scrapers, but we do have coal bills.

He would howl because he could find ao one to gather the coin in for him, While our cotton crop this season is short, it is not nearly so short as many predicted, and the same is true of the corn crop. Besides we have other crops and industries that are bringing in ready money. Visitors to this county report that condition here look fine to them. Just quit your drawling. The Mississippi legiiature will meet in the new capitol on Tuesday after the first Monday in January, 1924. In all probability it will be one of the hortest sessions for man) years, since it is reported that the concensus of opinion among legisla. tars is that it will be a business se sion devoting itself first to the pas age of revenue bills and thereafte to cutting the appropriation'ci0th to fit the revenues ohe state. The press of Mississippf'is already saytng that there are too many laws and that very few, if any, new ones are necessary. In fact it is intimated that there might be an omnibus re. pealing of useless laws which now encumber the law bobket---tH!nds Qounty Gazette TRUSTEE'S SALE.

DAMPF & MORGAN. _ II ro00ds li00e ModeGood Oil IllClr PK(Iq The railroads have made good on their pedge of lash April to meet the unprecidented demand for transportatio.u this year. Although the amount vf freight traflts offered has been the largest in the history and much greatex, than was anticipated, th railroads have moved it promptly and efficiently. It was predicted last spring that railway freight traffic would reach new high levels during the summer and fall. In prepar,tion for the task of mov- ing this record tralie, the railroads announced a program af expenditures upon additions and betterments to their properties amounting to more than $1,100,000,000 or the year. They set out to reduce the number of freighg cars needing3repaire to 5 per cent of the total and the number of locomotives needing heavy repairs to 15 per cent of the total They agreed to lay i surplus stocks of coal during the summer, in order to relear equip*nent fo" ether use later in file year. They agreed to carry forward their construction and maintenance programs to have as much work as possible completed by eptember I. All of them objectives have been substantiall]f obtained. For example,. between January 1 and October 1 the railroads installed 134,636 new freight cars and 2,963 new locomotives, and on the latte date they had on order, with del|veriees being made daily, 4,601 new freight cars and 1,242 new locometivM. On October 1 the railads had-in reserve 17,663,448 tons of. coat, as ompared with 6,756,886 tons on January 1. The swprkg achievement of te year is th a traffic reater than ha ever been known has been moved without interraptinn or delay. It was an. ticipated th ear feedings would exseed a million ears a week in nine week prior to October I. In reality, car feedings exceeded the milffo mark iu fifteen weeks, In the week immediately prior to October 1 more cars were' landed with t than ever before in raihvay hihry-.-a t@tal of 1,092,567 cars. Prior to '1923 the record loamg was 1,018,539 car in the week of October 15, 192@. Loadlngs in the nine month up to 0ctobez 1, 1923, amounted to 37,308,891 ers, an increase of 9 per cent over the' first nine mtlm of 122, 28 per cent over the first nine months of 1921 and I0 pet" cent over the fltt nine months of 1920.

There may be same daan,, howevee that this great acldevement f the nlroads wil eate te fal impremio that a further increase in railway facilities is not needed. To be able to meet the future demand for transportation as they have met it tl year, the lailreads must not ret upon their oars they mu continue to extend and improve their' faeilitie& Funds must be #btained t provide the additional facilities necessary to reduce th costs ef operatio and to enable the railroads to furni the public adequate transportation at the lowest poible rates.

Attacks upon railway credit are attacks upon tle'llbIic'elfare. More- over, uch attacks tend to dew up bu.iness and to effect unfavorably the market for all kinds of products, including the products of agriclltu3re.
