This is a prohibition township, still some people "see snakes." In the early spring rats, snakes and minks got so bad after my chickens I concluded to build a rat-proof chicken house. I got four sills buried them in the ground and was careful, all the way up to leave no space for a rat to enter. After' about a month I heard a noise in the chicken house (this was at high noon). I went to see what was was the matter and found a large black snake half in and half out of the chicken house. He had found a knot-hole in one of the boards. As I approached I saw he could not go forward nor get backward.. There .was a lump on either side of the board which held him fast. I killed- him and cut him open and found the lumps to be hen eggs he had swallowed; one he got In the weeds before going into th hole and the other he found on entering the house. -As I said before the lumps formed in .the, snake's body held him fast. I marked the eggs and put them under a hen that had been set that day. Both hatched and both are roosters; have nice silver plumage, extra long spurs and are both fighters — not for spoils, but for principles. I have named them Bryan and John R. McLean. My reasons for naming them after the two statesmen are that their story is prophetic of what will happen in 1900. Bryan will be nominated and elected; John R. McLean will be his running mate ad they will get on the inside of the trusts and other robbing schemes allowed by the present administration and de* stroy them while the gorged pets of Mark & Mcil w.lbec oetaohta of Mark & Me. will be ca,ught in the crack. Yours for a change, '•'"-'. '" JAMES L. WHITE Mayor of Shover Springs (From files of the Star of Hope, January 1900) At a meeting of the Council of this City the following gentlemen were selected and appointed to act in the capacity of a Board of Health for the town of Hope; Drs. Geo. H. Andrews, W. F. Saner, H. J. F. Garrett; Messrs. W, Y. Fos;ter, Jas. H. Belts and S. L. Reed. It was determined by resolution that all who have not been successfully vaccinated with the past 7 years shall at once take the precaution to prevent spread of smallpox in this city, Those who are .unable to pay will be vaccinated free by signing up at the Mayor's office, The board suggested to the city council that request be made to city to name two health officers whose duty it will be to inspect all persons coming to this place to prevent the introduction of smallpox suspects. The city was divided into the following health districts: The Iron Mountain Railroad, running east and west and Main street, running north and south shall divide the city into four districts. Tho board also passed a resolution urged the city council to strictly enforce the vagrant law, and to allow no idle men or boys, women or girls, white or black, to lounge about the streets, (To this last the STAR desires to utter a hearty Amen). T.he council at its meeting in- trusted the board of health to provide a pest house, in a proper locality in which aqy cases of smallpox may be Isolated. As yet no suspected cases have appeared or come into Hope, but our city fathers are wisely providing for protection of our people in case of usch an emergency. The unusual, we may say the unprecedented, number of deaths in Hope during the past thirty days, is by no means an indication of the locality being particularly subject to disease, or a high death rate. One explanation is that during that time we have had the first epidemic of measles since 1879, and measles this year have been a peculiarly malignant tupe, not only here by elsewhere. Do not be alarmed or discouraged; even with the unusual number of deaths in Jattnary and February, if you will average up the last five years you will find Hope an extremely low death rate, and if you will take into consideration and calculation the 27 years of the history of the town you will get a rate surprisingly low. (From the files of the Star ol Hope, Jan. 1900) City Collector Doty says that the receipts from water and light last month ran over'$500, and that the plant is now a source of revenue instead of an expense to the city government. Not a little credit for this satisfactory state of affairs is due to the zeal of Mr. Doty in collecting the rates. He is a good officer. (Fromes Files of the Star of Hope, December 1899) The show presented at the Opera House Tuesday night was by a large vote a good one. The presentation of the old time negro character always pleases the Southern people, and it natural accompaniment, singing and dancing, is always greatly enjoyed by our people. A large crowd came down from Nashville and went home well pleased. The only disagreeable feature of the evening was the per- formance of some "booze fighters" who came from somewhere else but Hope, and behaved themselves rather boisterously until Pappy Kyle moved into their vicinity and quiet reigned. (From files of Star of Hope, December 1899) There came near being a serioils accident at Miss Mary Winston's school last Monday. Several little girls were standing by the stove warming, when it was noticed that the frock of Mary Bell Meadows was on fire. Ov/ing to the presence of mind and prompt action of Lulie Simms the fire was crushed out and great calamity averted. (From files of the Slar of Hope, December 1899) 8 A. P. Dyke, who has just returned from St. Louis and other northern points said to the editor of this paper that it is now an assured fact that a cotton seed oil mill will be put in Hope. He also found some more good things which are coming to Hope. This town is going away to the good the coming year.

Old man Dawson was ; but recently discharged from Arkansas Lunatic Asylum, where has has been for three years, but had sufficiently recovered to be at liberty. He is an old Federal soldier and draws a pension. (From files of the Star of Hope, February 1900) Is will be seen that Capt. Gus Kyle, our present city marshal!, is again a candidate for re-election to the office which he has so long and so faithfully filled. Pappy is an institution of the town. He is known from one end of the Iron Mountain to the other as Hope's city marshal!. If a man should come here from another town and "get gay" and anybody else but Pappy offered to arrest him he would think it was a "josh."

HOSMER, mechanical superintendent, been with the Star since consolidation in January 1929, over 26 years. Cox, Dr. B'Shers and John Schoolfield of Fulton left Monday morning to go to the Indian Nation on a big hunt.

The Negro had an altercation with one of Capt. Benson's wage hands. Capt Benson interfered, saying ho would have them arrested. The Negro retorted, "If you do you will never make another trip to town." The Captain came to Washington and informed officers of the case. On his way home he was attacked by the negro from ambush. The captain wheeled in the saddle and shot the negro in the stomach, inflicting mortal wounds. At this writing (Thursday night) the negro is still alive. P. S.

This is evident to the viewer who compares present program- ing with what he saw two or three years ago. and is emphasized by the statistics. The biggest of the film manufacturers (Eastman Kodak Co.) says motion picture film now accounts for 55 to 60 per cent of good scripts. "The important thing in this business is quality. Sure, you can fio after the fast buck and live iike a king for a while. But when you make inferior pictures, there's only one way you can go—down." It's generally conceded here that a star can't amass any real riches on straight salary, even if it's $300,000 a picture. There are two ways of picking up the big loot. One is by incorporation to produce pictures. The shining example of this method is Burt Lancaster. Another is Humphrey Bogart, who dissolved his firm recently for a profit of a cool million. The other method is by participation. The: .most successful has been James Stewart. He makes most of hjs pictures at a minimum salary or none at all, then collects 50 per cent of the profits. All he has to do is act; some one elsa worries about producing the picture.

GREEN WASHINGTON I* — The Hoover Commission today urged Congress and the President to crack do\vn ; on what it called mismanagement: and wasteful use of the govern-! ment's vast real estate holdings, i In the latest of. a series of re-! ports, the commission said tho government owns 472 million acros! of land—one fourth of the nation's! entire area—and controls federal structures with space 1,250 limes; that of New York City's Empire; State Building. Yet the government has no up- to-date inventory of its holdings j and exhibits little familiarity wilhj j "modern real property manage-' 'meht" in. their use, the commission said. As a result, agencies frequently! buy new property when they could' occupy ground or buildings al- '• ready owned by the government, 'said the 12-member 'commission headed by former President Herbert Hoover. The report asked President Eisenhower to make a larger fcrant jof authority to'.the General S«M-V-| ices Administration, and to force j compliance with orders of that! j government wide housekeeping agency, which it said are now sometimes ignored by the 27 prop erty-holding agencies. The commission also asked Con gress to strengthen the Bureau of the Budget as a coordinating agency. The commission sidestepped some property management issues, which, when raised by the original commission six years ago, set off political fireworks. That commission recommended that a single agency be given sole responsibility for the management of forest lands and grazing lands, then as now divided between the Interior Department's Bureau o£ Land Management and Agriculture Department's Forest Service. Today's report recommended only that Eisenhower create a committee to study the federal rural lands and "make recommendations for their improved management," and that a uniform policy then be developed for all agencies involved. Similarly the commission devoted two pages to reciting the reasons—as developed by its task force headed ! by John R. Lotz, New York engineering executive "—why the government should write off or sell to private industry about 100 of the 288 industrial plants held in reserve for a war emergency.
