While former President Wilson would not accept any office within the gift of the people of this country at the same time he will most posi. tively have a voice'in naming the man Who Is to lead the Democratic paty in the next presidential campaign. rmtor Pat Itaison, of Missis- Ifippi, who is vi.ifing his borne state: declared in a recent i.terview, that a Democrat would be elected to suc. eee President Coolidge.

It will be remembered that the cattle in certain sections of that county are being dipped under the direction of the state and federal authorities, owing to the opposition to the dipping movement which develop- ed there during the early spring. A the same time we agree with The Record in it statement that to dip cattle up to Christmas seems to be carrying matters too far, as it will result in injury to the cattle and therefore create renewed opposition to the dipping movement. However. that's Amite county's fight. The ruthless slaughter of game by pot hunters, both in season and out of season, reaches the capital city from many localities of the state Uuless something is done to put a stop to such slaughter it will not be many years, according to hunters who observe the law, before game of all kinds will be extinct in Mississippi The report is current that the law is being evaded even in the game sea. son, by pot hunters with autonmtic guns, who never let birds get away and .when they kill the number of birls allowed by 1,-vw they have some ersons along who could not kill s bird if it were tied and use them in accounting for the number of birds as pawn, filling their bags with the number of birds allowed by law in order to get by game wardens. Mis- sissippi Comment by Edgar S. Wilson. The Houston Peat'well says: "Many" people seem to think that the posses. sion of great numbers of automobiles by the country folks is a sign that [ they are making a lot of money that [the difficulties that the farmers are ] supposed to encounter are largely ira, [ aginary. Many people living in out- lying districts, however, can testify that the automobile is an absolute necessity for them. With their old team of horses, it might have taken them a day to get to market town and back again. But With the auto- mobile, they esn usually do it in half the time. Time is worth a great deal of money to the farmer now, with the high price that must be paid for help. Gasoline and tires on his fliv- ver are cheaper than the pay for a farm hand. But when the use of the automobile is abused the upkeep may overbalance their usefulness." It is remarked by more than one observer that the autumnal woods of West Feliciana are increasing each year in beauty.. From some unknown cause there are more gum trees with their wonderful effects in varied shades of red leaves, more sumacs,. many more, randing like .Indians against baekgrounds of eye.sen windbreaks, or flaming amid fence raiIs or hiding in fence corners, not to mention the autumn yellow of certain oaks and the hedgerows scarlet with yupon.

Mathews, wealthy sugar planter and prominent citizen of the Lafourche ction, died on his Catherine plantation, West Baton Rouge parish, Wednesday night, while there on an inspection trip. The body was taken to his former home on Georgian plantation, near Raceland, and from there to Thibo- daux, where the funeral was held in St. James Episcopal cemetery. Mr. Mathews was a native of West Feliciana,and, though he removed to Raceland many years ago, he never lost contact with the old home and made fequent visits here. He was a brother of Mrs. S. M. Ventress and the late Mrs. H. M. Lawrason. Mrs. Mathews and their little daughter were with Mr. Mathews at the time of his death. He was 71 years of age.St. Francisville True Democrac. A. H.
