It's Your Chum.
Writing in an eastern paper C. N.
Greig, well-known journalist, says:
"The home paper is your chum, your
pal«and your intimate friend; the big
city daily is your casual acquain-
tance; the magazine is our occasion-
al visitor. And when it comes to ad-
vice, we trust a chum and an inti-
mate friend first, don't we? You
may not know it, but the small-town
paper not only delivers more friend-
ly and intimate' home-influence cir-
culation, but it is trusted, far more
widely than the big city dailies pro-
duced by men so far away that they
can't possibly be in touch with our

you want to sell something—offer it
to those who read the home-town
paper, because they have long ago
learned that they can believe what
they see in its columns. It isn't so
full of .advertising, either, that your
message will be buried, as often hap-
pens to advertisers in big dailies.

about advertising in your home-town

More than one Meridian man will
give three cheers for something he
wouldn't give anything else for.
A Real Benefactor.
James Lewis Cowles died recently
at his home in Richmond, Va. To
residents of Meridian and vicinity
this announcement means little, un-
til it is explained that Cowles was the
man who first conceived the idea of a
parcels post system. Then everyone
will know him as a great public ben-
efactor. He met with opposition,
but finally Uncle Sam decided to try
out the scheme. And now when we
reflect' upon the many advantages
that have grown out of its introduc-
tion and development we are immedi-
ately impressed with the fact that
not since the post office department
was first established has any man ad-
ded to it a single development as im-
portant or as popular as the parcels
post. In fact, it has about reached
a state where we doubt if the coun-
try could get along without it. 'We
build monuments to andf celebrate
the birthdays of men who haven't
done one-half as much for humanity
as J ames Cowles did when he
thought out our parcels post system.
Everything is moving along
smoothly out our way.
The farmers are all busy breaking
land, sowing grain, etc.
Our school is doing fine and every
one seems well pleased so far.
The Sunday School was ^vell at-
tended last Sunday. The young
people drew out of the old folks Bible
class and organized one of their own,
with Mrs. Jeffie Terry as teacher.
We think this a wise decision and
hope they will come prepared and
keep up an interesting class.
Bro. Hocker is conducting his
meeting now and we have a house
full every night, and fine song ser-
vice and all who ever heard the min-
ister know we are having some able
sermons to listen to and ponder over.
Bro. Arnold, a Baptist minister of
Fort Worth, preached for us last
Sunday at 11 a. m. Bro. Arnold said
he felt like he was getting back home
when he got in our community.

are welcome in our community at all
times, but bootleggers, lawbreakers,

On Thursday, November 2nd, the
Meridian High School football team
defeated the" representatives of the
McGregor High School in one of the
fastest and most interesting games
ever played on the McGregor grid-
McGregor kicked to Meridian, who
failed to make first down and Mc-
Gregor failed to kick goal. Score 6
Then our boys went back with re-
newed pep determined to score. This
determination did not have to last
long for soon C. Hallmark completed
a pass to T. Hallmark, and thereby
Meridian scored, but failed to make
goal. Score 6 to 6.
The game was then in favor of our
boys "who were really outplaying
their opponents. After the ball had
been pushed up and down the field
for awhile, McGregor succeeded in
kicking a field goal, with the result
that the score was 9 to 6.
One of the features of the game
was Rundell, half back for Meridian,
playing in his bare feet owing to the
muddy condition of the field. Later
this proved an aid to him in scoring
With only thirty seconds |eft in
which to play, C. Hallmark complet-
ed a pass to Rundell, who simply ran
off and left the McGregor boys, and
the result was Meridian was credited
with a touchdown, Rundjell having
carried the ball sixty yards.
Thus ended the game in Meridian's
favor, the final score being 12 to 9,
and another scalp is attached to her
belt of victories for this season.
McGregor recently held Waco to a
26 to 0 score, which gives Meridian
an excellent chance to the district
championship in the Interscholastic
Meridian High has not been scored
on this season until she. went up
against the McGregor team. The
results of the games played this sea-
son being as follows:
Meridian 47, Walnut Springs, 0;
Meridian 39, Hico 0; Meridian 33,
Dublin 0; Meridian 6, Clifton 0; Me-
ridian 12, McGregor 9; total, Meri-
dian 137, opponents 9.

continued success and that it will be
possible for them to enter the State
finals and "come home with the ba-

An interesting communication was
received recently from Mrs. Julius
Brown now residing at Springfield,
Tenn., and the recipients of this let-

The World Can
America went into the conflict as a nation
with the sentiment of the mother who said:
"America, here is my only one
My hope, my pride and joy,
But if I had another
He should march beside his brother,
America, here's my boy."
We poured our millions of men and billions
of dollars into the conflict and turned the tide
that saved the world from an awful fate.
"Splendid they passed, the great surrender made,
Into the light that nevermore shall fade."
And though internal vexations are bound
at times to come, the great spirit of America
will triumph over all obstacles, and we shall
continue through the ages to be the most glo-
rious nation the world has ever known.
In memory of all those who gave, we contribute
this space—a public acknowledgment of our sacred
obligation to keep this nation The Land of the Free.
