The Board of Supervisors have the
option of four sites for the new coart
house to be built in this district of
Hinds county-three in east Jackson
and one in the western part of the
city. It is now thought probable that
the supervisors will go ahead and bay
a site so as to begin at once on the
building instead of waiting and try
ing to get the legislature to donate
one. The equitable claim of the city
to a site from the legislature for a
court house cannot be denied, but
much delay would be caused by wait
ing until January.

For the first time in twenty years a
thief was publicly flogged at the whip
ping post in New Jersey the other day.
The culprit was a white man named
James Fisher, and he was accused of
stealing a diamond pin. Nearly all of
the city officials of Dover were pres

out. Many ladies of the town occu

through the air and fell upon the
white skin with a dull sound as though
striking putty; others pressed in
against the fence surrounding the poet
and expressed their approbation in va

over and the shackles loosened an
overcoat was thrown over the man's
bleeding back and he was taken back
to the Jail where ointment was ap
plied.

SOriln of a Prasm-Wt by Wi. a
ty It is a curious fact that "slang travels
l aster than steam." This is vagusely
at ascribed to the telegraph and the eper
ators, but no one save the operators
seems to know how quickly catch
plhrases are made to fly from city to city.
All things center in the telegraph of
fices; to them go all sorts of people-
theatrical foIk, "hersey" men, commer
cial travellers, men about town, mes
sengers, receiving clerks, and, in smal
Icr cities, even the operators hear and
are quick to "pick up" the "latest"
i phrases and catch-words, such as will
lend themselves to interjection between
the messages handled on a busy wire.
1e Telegraph offices are busy places, and
Ib those working in them must needs con
In dense their humor into the smallest pos
st sible space or go without it; hence tele
s- graphic wit is generally confined to crisp
as things that come out with a click, and
un are so edged with sarcasm as to reach
's hundreds of miles to the man at the
: other end of the wire.
p. One somewhat vulgar word, "bug
house," originated in a telegraph office,
and had a surprisingly quick popularity.
. On a busy morning, the first wire of a
a telegraph company between New York
L and Baltimore "went out of balance."
I. In other words, the delicate currents
s traversing it encountered a resistance
i4 great enough to cause them to cease
a. intelligibly to actuate the m'ultiplex in
. struments connected with it. The wire
my chiefs between Baltimore and New York
a. were called in, and, after much testing
d. the trouble was located in Baltimore's
r instruments. The Baltimore wire chief,
1) upon close examination, found that the
et trouble was caused by a cockroach,
s which, after tumbling into an ink-well,
flush with the table, crawled out and
dragged its wet body upon the top of
ar the resistance box, trying to escape in
to the box's interior through one of the
o switch-plug holes.
of The insect's wet body formed a con
, nection, and the current traversed it as
readily as it would have a metal plug
a, placed in the hole; therefore many hun
10 dred ohms too much resistance was
D thrown across the path of the passing
currents. Hence the resistance box
"had a beg," which created "wire trou
ble." This information was repeated
to New York when the wire started
again. The story was told about the
metropolitan office, discusqed and com
, mented upon, and a new slang word
4 came into being, one just suited to tele
, graphic uses. Variations were settled
upon within fifteen minutes, and the new
bit of slang was seni flying over the
i country in every direction, as the poor
wit of the operators found opportunity
to use it.
r Soon after I was assigned to the St.
Louis wire. I knew the man in the Mis
souri city personally, and we sere much
by given to joking with each othtr. I was
ready to pass the new word on to him
when occasion offered, but before the
opportunity came a difference-of opinion
arose between us over the wntter of a
newspaper special theji pass'ag between
us. At an interesting, point It the con
troversy my distant friend calhily click
ed off the opinion that I was "bug
to house." "Where did you get hold of
that ?" I asked. He said, "Thy man on
rk the Cincinnati wire just yelled t at me."
to So Baltimore had passed the new slang
to Cincinnati. St. Louis go sit next,
r. and probably passed it to Ogden, and
na- Ogden sent it flying to the Pacific Coast.
'' Chicago had it from Cincinnati, and
, passed 4it to the Northwest. St. Louis

" rate it maintained in the first fifteen
minutes of its life, have traversed the

clerks in each office, the clerks to the
messenger boys, and the boys bore it in
to every nook and corner of their re

"The civilization of to-day has not
been ground to that raor-edged keene
ness when the painless putting to their
ia by final sleep of incurables would be jus- I
the tified," said a well known Washington
alienist to a Star reporter.
"But it does not follow that the civ
ilization of two years hence may not
be such that the power of the state over
oper- the lives and property of its citizens will

p f- "First, the passage of a bill by the

worthy of strong commendation, but its
wire. practical workings are nullified because
and such couples may cross the border into
con- another State and be legally married. To
- become an effective measure of protec
pos- tion the law would have to be universal
in the respective States.
and The progeny of a single couple of
,anh degenerates and paupers have been
traced to their various ramifications
the through several generations, and out of
b over i,ooo descendants 95 per cent. have
become paupers, thieves, convicts, mur
derers, persons of ill-repute and charges
aty upon the public in one form or another,
of a male and female alike. Students of this
York interesting social question have made
other compilations of degenerate fam
rents ilies with equally authentic and startling
tance results.
ceae "The power of the State to legislate

been The importance of keeping as many

it of by the fact that eggs are usually in de

mur- be sold for cash. In proportion to the
arges apital invested in poultry compared
ther, with larger stock the profits are very
this large. The fowls give returns every
nade month in the year, and if the supply of
fam- eggs begins to fall off there is some
tling compensation in the higher prices ob

islate little in price compared with eggs, as

SUCCESSFUL CALF RAISING.
)FF. A calf rearer who has lost only one
cshe out of ninety calves born alive in five
long seasons, and that one an animal which
not was born with an internal malady, may
with be accepted as a safe guide upon the
the subject. With such credentials Mr. Law
food rence, manager of the Newton Rigg
if it Farm for the county councils of Cum
berland and Westmorland, came ber
fore the Chamber of Agriculture of
those counties a few days ago to de
for scribe his experience. In rearing calves
min- by hand losses are often numerous, but
valu- Mr. Lawrence showed how they could
only be reduced to a minimum by proper
t be- feeding, attention to. sanitary condia
body tions, and the timely administration of
for a little medicine, chiefly to cure "white
pur- scour" in its early stage.
and When a calf is born it is immediately
removed to a pen well littered with dry
straw, rubbed well with straw and cov
JUL- ered over with a little of the same ma
terial. In half an hoer the calf is fed,
by means of the fingers, with about a
nany pint of its mother's first meal of the day.
rated During the first week the calf has no
Sde- thing but its mother's warm milk, get
can ting a pint and a half three times a day
> the at first, and a quantity gradually in
craed creasing to two quarts at the end of a
very week. On the third (lay the young ani
very nial is taught to drink without the
y of fingers. The food is the same, two
some quarts three times a day through the
ob- second week, while in the third week
half the milk i; separated or skimmed,
* half a pint of linsecd soup being added
early to it, to take the place of the cream. In
the fourth week the only alteration is
food the addition of a handful of sweet hay
sum' twice a day. In the fifth week the diet
ndit consists of two and a half pints of warm
separated or skimmed milk, with half a
pint of linseed soup mixed with each
quart, three times a day, and a little
'. sweet hay night and morning.
!very This diet is continued to the end of
cater the eighth week. After this the linseed

e-de- twelfth week the midday meal is omit

into cake and crushed oats together being
will given at midday, with half a gallon of

PURE FOOD
LAW VIOLATED.
Interesting Facts Concerning the Rosstin
of Coffee Brought Out by Scientifio
Expert.-Presence of Bacteria.
Toarno, August 10th-The jury in
Judge Meek's court in this city has
found James White, a local grocer,
guilty of selling adulterated coffee.
y The prosecution was based on a pack
i age of Ariosa coffee.
The State of Ohio, through the Pure
Food Comnmission, prosecuted White.
The case was on trial for nearly a
month, and attracted national atten
tion.
The manufacturers of ArLosa coffee
conducted the defense for Grocer
White. Attorneys of eminence
V were retained to defend him.
Y hut after a short consultation a verdict
of guilty was returned by the jury.
r The State of Ohio considers this a big
y victory. Pure Food Commissioner
Blackburn has been waging a warfare
on spurious food articles and the de
partment has been successful.
The complaint of the State of Ohio
was that Ariosa coffee was coated with
a substance which concealed defects
in the coffee and made it appear better
S than it is. The State charged this coat
Ing or glazing was a favorable medium
for the propagation of bacteria.
t Prof. G. A. Kirchmaier. of this city,
a well-known chemist, was the prin
e cipal witness for the State. He tes
tifitled that he had made scientific ex
d aminations of samples of Arlosa
d purchased from Grocer White in
t the open market, and found that
each berry contained sita average
of 800 bacteria. Mr. Kirchmaler
further testified that other cof-1
e fees he examined contained few bac- 1
r teria or none at all. He declared that
the glazed coffee was not a wholesome
food product.
r Chemist Schmidt, of Cincinnati, cor- I
r'f oborated the testimony of Prof.
U Kirchmater. The State did not present
r further testimony.
e The defense secured some of
h the most eminent chemists and
scientists in the United States
to give testimony in theirbehalf. Prof. I
H. W. Wiley, of the United States
e Agricultural Department; Prof.
d Vaughn, of Ann Arbor University;
a Profs. Bleile and Webber, of the Ohio
n State University, were called to de
d fend Ariosa. Dr. Wiley made a care
f /nl ovemnation of the method of mnn.
le uzacturmg. He told of the l),
d 000,000 eggs used yearly in the prepar
at stion of this glazing. On this point,
e In cross-examination. the State's at
,n torney deftly drew from him the in
formation that these eggs might be
kA ept in cold storage for a year or two
at a time.
n The experts who heard Dr. Wiley's
h testimony were pleased to listen
id to so famous a chemist. The
r doctor at one point in his testimony
explained very clearly how it is that
the egg put into the coffee pot by

said that the heat coagulates the egg.

Later on in his cross examination, he
admitted that when the egg was

became coagulated, and as egg cannot
be coagulated but once, that the coat
ing on coffee was practically no value,
n as a "settler" when it reached the
s coffee pot.

'r Pure Food Commissioner Blackburn
.e says: "The State is very much eslated
- over its victory. We are now concider
ing the advisability of Informing every
o grocer in the State of Ohio that it is
h an infraction of the laws to sell
s Ariosa, and at the same time give
'r warning to consumers that the coffee
t- is an adulterated food article."
n The verdict of the Jury in this case
is of national importance because a
r, great many other States have pure
f' food laws like that of Onio, and it
;" is natural to suppose that similar ac
a- tion will be taken by other Pure Food
a Commissioners to prevent the sale of
