   Laurel Ledger, The (Newspaper) - December 16, 1909, Laurel, Mississippi                                WUff I m will pay-You to Entered as Second-Class Mail November at the Poatofflce at Laurel, of Congress of March VOL: ix.

DRIVER IN CHARGE Runaway and are Checked by Jus- tice Singley, Who is Injured. Justice of the.Peace Singley is around on crutches, the result of preventing a public-cab standing at the depot, with no driver in charge, from running into a country wagon carrying women and children. The cab team frightened at something about the depot, as teams often do, and with no one to check them, the animals star- ted off on a run. Mr. .Singley, he said, seeing no driver, acted promptly by grabbing the lines, but these checks in case of neces- sity, proved to be too weak to stand the strain, and both lines broke off at the bits, Mr. Singley to the ground, the wheels running over both of the judge's legs, quite badly bruis- ing both. The judge while get- ting along well, is somewhat un- easy about one of his knee-caps, which is worrying him. Fortunately, Mr. Sinley's act prevented any one else being in- jured arid possible damage suits. Animals left on th'e streets any- where are generally recognized as dartgerous to life, and it the common custom to class negli- gence such as this as a misde- meanor punishable by a fine or imprisonment. But to leave an- imals unguarded where passing trains and locomotives, or ordi- nary noises incindent to depot life, may at any time frighten them, appears to be the limit. RAILROAD ON WAY TO LAUREL Well, did you know it? There is one Railroad coming Laurel's way, for sure.' It's not a Trunk Line; that is, not" just now. But, when completed to Laurel it will connect two Trunk Lines. These two are the Mobile and Ohio and the New Orleans and North Eastern. far as Laurel's commercial interests are concerned, it will be "just as if not much better. Laurel's Local Trade will be benefited thereby. It would run through Laurel's territory. Laurel's. Progressive Business Men would do the rest and turn the trick to a'nicety. Information has come in from from several sources that the line has reached Thompson's Creek and is being pushed ahead west- ward toward Laurel. The road in question, is being constructed this way by the Hia- wanna Lumber Company, with headquarters at Shubuta. Laurel to Shubuta! It would not be a very long line. But, think of its importance as a feeder to the local trade. Why not encourage it? Just as soon as the proposed Laurel Business League is or- ganized it will find something at hand to'work on. Laurel's next business season might well be opened with: "All Aboard, For CALENDAR SEASON ON IN FULL 5LAS1 Star Confectionery's Calendar an Excellent Piece of Art. Among the calendar? exhibited to .and admired by the Laurel public, the Star Confectionery's is worthy of special mention. The subject is "A Venitian Hon- and is a reproduction of the painting by Leon do ciers, the noted French arlint- poet. The painting depicts beauti- fully Venitian lite and customs, harmonions with her poetic at- mosphere, illustrative of her ro- mantic sensibilities, and the re- production of this painting is a good one. This calendar is a very costly one and The Star has hit upon a plan for it to benefit the greatest number possible. It will be seen at the Mississippi Drug Co., at The J. C. Clark Drug Go's., at ,he Y. M. C. and other pla- ies in the city. The Ledger wishes to grate- fully acknowledge the compli- ment of a beautiful calendar of the quail and dog design from The Mississippi Drug Co. Toys ,for all the children at Laurel Hardware Co.

DEPOT N. 0. N.E. DEPOT blSEASED MEAT CONDEMNED City Inspectors Enforce the Law arid are Abused Therefor. Some feeling has been aroused among meat sellers from "the country because their pork ha? 'been condemned by the city meat inspectors. Some of the meat, it ,is said, was offensive .to the smell; indi- cating that it was so badly dis- eased, it was unfit to eat. Though those who offered the meat for sale, expressed much indigna- tion against the inspectors, it is hot believed they showed their confidence in their own meat by eating it at home. Sellers from the country should appreciate that meat inspection enforcement is intended not only for the protection of the buyers, but it also protects the-well-in- formed and the honest seller against the dishonest or ignorat, the latter perhaps, not knowing that their meat is unfit to eat. The inspectors are not to be blamed. It is their duty to en- force the meat inspection law, and the better they do it, so much the better will it be both for the raisers and for the eatere of meat. Hence, those who unfit meat for sale have no just ground to complain. The housewives should be on the lookout for the inspector's tag before anjj also see to it that the cooks are not care- less in the purchase of meat, whether animal, fish or fowl. PER YEAR. NEW PASTORS FOR UUREL CHURCHES. Rev. T. W. Adams and Rev. L. F. Alford are Transfered. Rev. T. W. Adams, of the Main-street Methodist church returned Tuesday from Brook- haven, where he had been at- tending the conference of the Methodist ohurch, to which he had the pleasure of presenting from his church the finest report of the conference.
