Charley Armistead, the colored man
who carries the mail daily between
Providence and, Duncaneby, had his
skiff stolen at Wilson Point sometime
during Sunday night, and had to'
bring the Monday mail back
to the postoffice on account ofl
not being able to cross the
river. Sheriff Chilton ,at Mayersville
telephoned to Sheriff Doun on Monday
that two men-one white and one col
ored-bed crossed in a skiff and had
sunk it, and that they acted so sus
picious he arrested them and plhaed
them In jail. He wanted to know if
they were wanted here, and Mr. Dunn
'phoned back that they had stolen the
mail carrier'6 skiff and to bold them.
Mr. Dunn feels confident that they are
either escaped convicts from Arkansas
or have committed some crime In that
State and are trying to make their es
cape. The men will be brought here,
and no doubt Uncle Sam will take a
hand in prosecuting them for lIteofer
lug with the malls.
Mr. Robor, working out at Flscher's
saw mill met with a very unfortunate
accident on Tuesday morning. It is
his work to keep the saw duet pitt
cleaned out, which is under the saw,
and was at this work wheat he met
with the accident. A small piece of
slab.got caught in some way near the
saw, and the unfortunate man reched
up for it with his left hand (no dotbt
carelessly), when it was jerked to the
saw in an instant by the slab. His
three fingers and thumb were cut and
mashed horribly. He was brought to
town immediately and Drs. Artand
and Bernard had to take off the three
fingers, and by the careful operation
they hope to save part of the thumb.
The fingers had to be amputated at the
nuckles. It was an unfortunate acci
dent for the young man, and we hope
he gets along nicely.

*There is some consolation in the
fact that if the corntlropis not so good

made in the parish this year than in
many years before, and that it Is of a
flee quality. A few years ago it was
a hard matter to fins three hay presses
in the parish, but now there are twen

they are kept busy at work bailing for
those who have no presses. The hay

At the present time the prospect,
for an abundant sad large yield oft
cotton never looked better, and if
nothing unforeseem happens we will
have a crop equal to 18997, in which
year there was so mch- cotron made
io East Carroll that a great deal of it
was never picked. The planters have
worked bard, sad from what we mca
learn the colored people went ln'st the
beginning of tihe year with better
hearts than in many Jears, for the rea
son that the majority of them received
a good price for their cotton last year
and made money. Many of them
made enough to "run" them almost the
entire year without asking to be
"furnished," and many of them failed
to make money for the reason that
they would "take up" the earth and
all that is in It if there were no strings
to it. These kind never make money,
nor bardly a living, and don't care to.
There is no parish in the State, nor a
country in the South, where the col
ored people are treated any better, or
given the chance that they get in East

they keep it, and there bhas never been
any unpleasantness among the whites

might come down the Mississippi. Mr.

carefully looking at all points along
the entire line of the fifth district
where new work may be needed and
to have it built without delay. Mr.
Robertson thought that the entire
stretch of Bunch's Bend levee would
be raised five feet, and that all
low places in the levee from Provi
dence to Wilson Point would be
brought up to grade. The gentlemen

A negro, who gave his name as Tom
Whitlow, was arrested by marshal
Peck last Friday, on a telephone mes
sage sent to sheriff Dunn, from the
sheriff of Sharkey county, Mis. The
negro had crossed the river and had
been in town and was returning to the
landing, no doubt to take a boat, when
he ran into the arms of the marshal
who was on the lookout for him. It
is said that Whitlow had stolen $1.50
from James Shoodera storekeeper at
Niaryuma. Whitlow had a wound on
the inside of the leg near the hip, and
bad wrapped leaves around the wound
to keep the blood from showing. Ten
dollars only was found on him, and it
was thought he had hid the other
money. He volunteered to return
without requisition papers, and be was
taken back within a few hours after
his arrest. It don't do for fugitives
to come this way and to let shertif
Dunn or marshal Peck know of it.

in the house and gave him four drops
in a teaspoonful of water and he got
better at one." For sale at J. S. Gue
