In the farming areas the effect of

How silly is this doctrine; worthy

The story of Guthrey's murder was
printed in the Star, the Banner, the

many white citizens are there in this
county who do not read one of those?
Why does a civilized people spend
millions on education and then allow
lawyers to try to fill jury boxes with
men who can read nothing but the
Bible and the almanac, and generally
read only the almanac?
