Moses Levi, the prince merchant of
this county. His stock of goods is
equal to any retail store in the State,
and he wishes to reduce it prior to

select your goods, name any reasona

Rev, Mr. Rooke, of the Baptist church,
gave us two fine sermons on yesterday. In
the morning from the text, "Charity suffer
eth long, and is kind," and in the evening
from these words: "Forgive us our debts as
we forgive our debtors." Combining several
circumstances, these sermons were thought
to be very appropriate, and are much and
favorably commented upon.
Dr. L. W. Nettles will represent Claren

Mn. Enrron:-The joint stock company
alluded to last week for pounding stock has
culminated into a final organization. It
will not be a secret order. Its main object
will be to assist the needy ones whose stock
may be seized by those not members of the
company. A small contribution from each
member will thereby enable them to re
deem their stock without pecuniary loss.

Capt. A. L. Lesesne is now running his saw
mill. His mill, located on Sammy Swamp,
is finely situated for business. Capt. Les
esne is a young man. At a very early age
he was placed in charge of his mother's
farm at Rockland. It has been repeatedly
stated, for one so young at the time, his
business tact, energy, and push could not
be e..eelled. With these qualifications most
any enterprise will succeed at his hands.
Mr. J. H. T. Coullette is building a fine
house. The model differs from that of any
house yet built at Panola, and from the out
side viewv when completed will in beauty
excel any build~ng put up here since the
war. In consequence of his advanced views
he has constructed an evaporator for boiling
The calendar for Judge Mahoney's court
shows a heavy docket. Some twenty odd
prosecutions for crime, variously brought
from petty larceny to aggravated assault and
battery with intent to kill. Grime is on the
increase. It seems old satan has turned
loose his legion of angels with their mighty
satanic influence, and poor fallen nature,
has fallen an easy victim to his power. How
can it be otherwise? Whiskey is flooding
the country, aold secretly almost anywhere.
Friend Strange should punt his hotel in bet
ter order, for, from all appearances, every
room will be occupied.
Another crime against society is the prac
tice of carrying concealed weapons. The
law against concealed weapons is a nullity
upon the statute books. Eveiy negro has a
pistol with the end sticking out of his vest
pocket. Did not our law makers intend
otherwise? Did not they intend the spirit
of the law to mean that we should carry no
deadly weapon about our person at all?
Another curse to any -community is these

I am not wanting for news. The general
public know this, but how to write, we are

SEVERE CASES OF BLOOD POISON.
Thousands srfler from blood poison, who
would be cured if they gave B. B. B.
(Botanic Blood Balm) a trial. Send to the
Blood Balm Co., Atlanta, Ga., for book of,
wonderful cures, that convince the most
skeptical. It is sent free.
J. 0. Gibson,. Meridian, Miss., writes:
"For a number of years I suffered untold
agonies from blood poison. Several promi
nent physicians did me little if any good.
I began to use B. B. B. with very little faith,
but, to my utter surprise it has made me a
well and hearty person."
Z. T. Hallerton, Macon, Ga., writes: "I
contracted blood poison. I first tried phy
sicians, and then went to Hot Springs. I
returned home a ruined man physically.
Nothing seemed to do me any good. My
mother persuaded me to try B. B. B. To
my utter astonishment every ulcer quickly
Benj. Morris, Atlanta, Ga., writes: "I
suffered years from syphilitic blood poison
which refused to be cured by all treatment.
Physicians pronounced it a hopeless case.
I had no appetite, I had pains in my hips
and joints and my kidneys were diseased.
My throat was ulcerated and my breast a
mass of running sores. In this condition
I commenced a use of B. B. B. It healed
every ulcer and sore and cured me complete
ly within two months."
This powder never vanes. A marvel of
purity, strength and wholesomeness. More
economical than the ordinary kinds, and

titude of low test, short weight, alum or
phosphate powders. Sold only in cans.

important matter in making or taking re

insert the post office as their place of resi

live on as being their place of residence,
