Board of Supervisors of Adams county passed an ordinance last week placing a tax of $2.00 per annum on all hunters in that county, and now petitions are being circu- lated asking for i* repeal.

A visitor to our "town, who had not' been here during the past three. months, remarked to this writer that l he had never seen such an improve-! meat in any town as had been made in Woodville since his last vit. He explained that this improvement was! due not only to the new sidewalks,! but largely to the excellent grvel streets that Marshal Thomas has con- structed, and to the improvement that has been brought about in the street corners ad crossings. Most certainly our marshal deserves much credit for the excellent results which he has secured in his labors on our streets Be it said to his credit that he has put in many days of real, genuine hard work. Mr. C. S. Miller, member of the faculty of the A. H. Schoolere, and Prentiss Jensen and Robert Nettles, two of the students, while on their way to attend the foot ball game in Natchez last Friday morning, had narrow eapes from death when the automobile in which they were riding turned turtle down a fifteen-foot embankment on the "Devil's Back- bone," a nawow link of road on the Prentiss Highway: The coupe, whicb was driven by Miller, turned com- pletely over and the thrde occupants were thrown out through the top, the driver being knocked unconscious and I the other two escaping withotl injury. Miller was brought to ] Woodville and did not regain con- t seiousuess until late that aternoon, [ but he appeared to be all right on the I following day. The many friends of I the young men are thankful that 1 they escaped so fortunately. I The Wilkinson County Chapter of] the Red Cross had a called meeting at the court house on Monday after. noon to consider the possibility of employing a Red Cross public health nurse for child welfare work in WiL ktnson county. This being the season for the nual Red Crom roll call, it was thought that by means of this and by using the funds now in the treasury a sufficient sum to defray the nurse's expenses for a year might l be raised. But after considerable discussion it was decided that the work could not be put on. Mr L. B. Robinson, of Centreille, was elected county president, to fill the vacancy caused by the resignation of her husband, who has had thi office for several years.
