This is the day that Christ .v..s'iitrn,
Hark to the mu,ie sweet and wiIl.

That Christ was lot n to -dav.
Ring till the chi!rdrh n start fromn sleep,
Sweet with the dreami of joy to be, I
And clap their little handlls and leap,
And shot aloud in glee.
Ring till the sorrowful ones of earth
Whose lives are spent in toil and tears, 1
That leaves, aSas! no place for mirth
In all the dreary years
Shall hear the tender words ie said:
•'Come unto Me all ve that mouru!"
And gather strength anew to tread
The path His fet t have worn
Ring loud, ring sweet, O Christmas
Avid tune each waking soul to prayer,
The while your joyful pa:an swells r
Upon the wintry air.
Through misty dawn and sunshine
Rine till the callous hearts of mien. C
Stirred with the thought of Christ so "
Grow warm and soft again.
Ring till the tender impulse turns
To pitying thought, to generous
Ring till the eager spirit burns
To succor all that need.
And while ye ring, with heartand voice.
Glory to ,Godt lot all metn say,
And every living soul rejoice e
That Christ was born to-day. I

A horrible murder was committed a
near Arcadia landing, Miss., last in
Sunday night by a gang of levee is
negroes. A trading boat had stop- "
ped near the landing, and on thet
little boat was a white man, his
wife and babe, and during the night te
the toan and .wife were murdered ci
and their bodies thrown in the river, N
while the babe was not killed, but st
pitched overboard to drown. The si
negroes after doing their hellish V
work took what money, hlothinig to
and jewelry they could find, and:,
then set the boat on fine, hoping to sic
destroy all trace of what they had oi
It is reported that several of the in
levee negroes were connected in the m
terrible murder and one was caught pl
who had on clothes and jewelry be. st
longing to the murdered family. thl
He was arrested and confessed, but ly
would not tell who the others were gt
that were with him, excepting that 't
there were four others. All kinds at
pf rumors have reached IProvidence nt
that the infuriated citzeos of Issa- th
quena county took the law in their'
own hands and hung the negro who ,(
eonfessed, and then called at the St
levee camp, where about forty ur:
negroes are employed and tried to no
fmind out who the others were; btt r
falling to find out anything, which th
is always the case in levee camps, itl
the citizens almost exterminated the tic
entire camp. These are the rumnore ir

,T '4de of the moet unrelifble things
on, earth is >> ',estirnblt" of the
ytiid of a Uotton crop. Whether
r. made by an individal or the gov
ernment, it makes no difference.
Any man who has watched his own
crop, week after week, from May
until September, knows how impos
sible it iei to make a satisfactory
estimate at any given time, even on
a few hundred acres. And in this
the planter has the tremendous ad
vantage of being familiar with the
land, and knowing what it has done,
at under various conaitions, from year
We do not believe that one plan
ter in ten can, )n the first of August
or September, estimate within one
huIndred bales of the yield from
1,-00 acres of cotton. In making
this statement we suplpose a
thorough knowledge of his land on
the part of the planter. A differ
ence of twenty pounds of lint per
acre, means, on 1,200 acres, 24,000
pounds, or forty-eight hales.
If it is so difficult to approximate
one crop, it appears to u:s to be but
little short of athurd to attemUt an
estimate of the yield from 25,000,
000 acres, scattered throughout the
entire Southern states, embracing
all conceivable grades of soil, under
all possible conditions of climate
s and cultivation.
It is no argument to say that
many accurate "'estimate-" have
been male. All best, these have
e been but little more than fairly suc
cessful guesses, and .have relpre
o sented the closest of many attempts.
For every one such there have beep
a dozen to go wide of the mark.
s Mr. Neill was never more plausible
than last year, and never more
cocksure of his figures. Yet, pur.
suing his usual ''methods," he
proved to be as fallible as the veri.
est tyro. This year we have Neill,
BuIt'on, the government and various
amateurs, in addition to the regular
cotton firmn. If two or three hal,
4 pen to strike it it will Uot be strange;
e yet tte accurate gue.ses will be pro
claimed from the housetops, while
nothing will be heard about the
hundred that failed.
The government says 10,100,000,
t and a few days later Latham, Alex
ander & Co. say 9,767,000. Either
may prove correct, either may miss
it three quarters of a million bales,
or more. It would be a most for.
tunate turn for the planter if all
should go wild. A reputation for
close "estimates," such as Neill pos.
sessed, fur instance, gives one man
far too great an influence over the
price. "Estimates" do the plianter
no good, but merely serve the ends
of the speculator.
Rough on J. R. 0. Pitkin, New Or
The Daily States of Monday last
has a very severed article on J. R.
G. Pitkin, the post master of New
Orleans, which we publish below.
This is not the first time that Pitkin
has been shown up to be anything I
but a gentleman. McKinly has
another in a fat l)osition down there
(Wimberly) who was provedl to be a
partner in one of the lowest negro
dlives in the city.
This is what the States says about
For some dlays past the press of
tle North has been reveling in the
nauseating details of a shocking 1
scandlal occurring in official station(
in this city, the particulars of which
are unprintable and unspeakably vile.
The central figure and most prom
inent actor in this disreputablle drama
is Mr. J. R. G. Pitkin. whom the
President appointed as postmaster of
the City of New Orleans, and the es
capades of which he is the hero are
enough to cause the blush of shame
to mantle the cheek of every decent
citizen of New Orleans. Some time
i ago, long before the press of the
North had scented the salacious
story, the States came into posses
sion of the disgraceful facts together
with such incriminating evidence as
to fasten unmistakably the guilt up
on the postmaster, but the details
were so uuspeakably vulgar and olh.
scene as to place it beyond the pale
of decent journalism. The States
enters the homes of the biest citizens
of the city and the South, it is read I -
in the homes and the firesides of the
most cultured and refined of our peo
ple andti its aim is to maintain a high
standlard of clean journalism andti not
to pander to the depraved tastes of
the vulgar and the vicious. Sincere
yIv hoping that the facts in the dis
gusting case, which we bad reason
to know were conveyed to the Post o
Otlice )Department and the President
at Washington, would bring the
national authorities to our relief, and a
thereby render puhlicity unnecessary '
by the removal of the moral pervert I
who has dtlisgraced the position of
postmaster of this great city, tte i
States rigidly eschewed from its col- "
ums as long as a proper regard for a
putilic decency would permit, any
reference to the vile subject. r
But this forbearance, in view of
the non-action of the Federal author
itles and of the apparent indisposi- fE
tion of the chief actor to step down a:
and out from a position which he has a
disgraced and to retire from tlie pub- a'
ic view, can be maintained noP

shockingly outraged by the bold de- T
fiance of every canon of morality.hy 1
this libidinou. public official, de
maands that a protest be made by the L
decent press of this city against the re
continuation in high offlcial station 3'
of one who has demonstrated such le
an appalling state of beastly doe- st
pravity; whose moral degeneracy ia
a reproach to the public service and
it an insult to the moral sepahilitieaof
the honorable manhood tpd the re
fined an4` virtuotu woaafnlhod ,of
e New Orleans. In their narse and
r behalf the .States enters a solemn
v- prosest agaainst the pruotitution and
e. degradation of the public service
,n brought about by the unspeakable
conduct of this moral monstrosity,
y and it calls upon the President in
s- behalLf.of public, morality and de
ry cency to remove from office at once
n one who has brought reproach and
contempt upon the dignity of public
is station and whose continued pres
d- ence in power is an insult to New

Dennis Brown of Lake Providence.

e Williams in Lonissille, Kentucky, Dec.
In 12th, 1900. at 10 o'clock a. in.
The ceremony was performed by
a Father Murphy of the Cathedral.
in The home was decorated with palms,
- smylax ferns and beautiful white roses
~r and carnations, which made a perfect
1 setting for the picture long to live in
the hearts of the: very few relatives
and friends who witnessed the cere
it Miss Nellie May Williams. the little
'I niece of the bride, played the wedding
march. and as the sweet strains from
ie Lohengrin" floated softly out into
g the room. the bridal party entered.
.r Father Mnrpy led the way. lie wasJol
e lowed by Mr. Brown and his-best man.
Mr. David Williams. Then came the
bride on the arm of her brother, Mr.
J. P. Williams, looking, as the revereund
Father explained it. -'sweet, pure and
h beautiful," dressed in a simplle gown
of pure white, her tulle veil fastened
with a bunch of lilies of the valley.
She carried a boquet of her own sweet
II flowers--narcissus and lilies of the
. valley,. and an exquisite fan which had
e been her mother's. Mr. Brown tho'
e among entire strangers, was thorough
ly at his ease. and carried himself in a
e manly way that won the hearts of all
The ceremony was performed in the
presence of her family and four life
long friends. Though the witnesses
were so few in number, their hearts
overflowed with love and good wishes
for tha happy couplo. The perfect
simplicity of every detail made it ex
e qui-itely elegant.

tions. a beautiful wedding breakfast
Mr. and Mrs. Brown soon after bade
r, good-bye, and left on the 12 m train
