While lolling In the lobby of the lien-

broader of girth and 'face, and healthily

dlocuss the breezy days when ho held
down the governorship.
He Is not much Interested In politics.

valley, for cotton raising, for cattle and

"You know wo need 00X000 families In
tho Mississippi valley," said Planter
Sheldon. "And we could use to excellent
advantage $0,000,000 tor waterways Im
provemcnts. If the federal government
should spend this sum In confining the
Mississippi to a permanent channel It
would be a wise and profitable Invest
Continuing to boost for his adopted
state and Its sister commonwealths Mr.
Sheldon said It was something to marvel
at when one knew what white families
could, do It they would buy nnd settle
moro densely In tho rich region ot tho
"The climate. Is not bad, ' he sold.
"Crops are sure. Tho land Is selling at
figures below Its Intrlnslo worth, while
the high-priced land In tho north Is
really selling at moro ttmn Its Intrinsic
worth. There are flno pasture lands In
tin south; flnn farm lands; flno timber
lands, but tho timber atone seems to at
tract capital and this timber Is bring
cleared away at great waslo."

"There Is a great future for chicken
raisers in tho south," said Mr. Sheldon
"but the trouble seems to ho tho whites
like chicken too welt and keep eating
them, unmindful ot tho fact that theyl
would lay tho yrar around."
Referring to tho so-called negro prob
lem In tho south tho ex-governor said In

with Impartial Justlco by tho courts. He
said In recent years there was a greater!
tendency for negroes, and whites to keep
