DEAR MR. EDITOR: t
Since my last news notes so t
much of importance hascrowded
itself into the life of this commun
ity, of which I am a part, and of
such interest to the public in
general, that I have decided to
furnish you with some running
1etters covering the ground, as I
view it, that has not as yet been
traversed. My last letter was 1
relative to the Lake Arthur camp
meeting. Since then I see from
the "RECORD" that some of the
young ladies of Jennings have (
gone to the "East Misissippi Fe
male College" of Meridian, Miss. t
to school That is an excellent i
christian home and a fine school. f
I hope they may alldo well there. a
Returning home from Lake
Arthur I found our ward in the t
midst of a hot prohibition cam- t
paign. This second campaign i
was necessitated by the contest
made by the whiskey element
after the first election; in that in
that one,the election commission
ers had not been careful to see
that each box was properly de
livered at the desired destination.
The final outcome (as you know)
was a big victory for the temper
ance people-They gaining one
hundred and twenty-one votes in
majority in favor of 'o license.
Debarring a few trivial affairs of
no great consequence the elec
tion was a quiet and peaceful.
This scribe was attacked by a
saloon keeper who considered 1
himself the master of the situa
tion and supreme dictalor for
ward one. This unlucky party
paid dearly for his "fool hardy"
rashness both in hard cash and
For this victory on the side of
morality and righteousness we
give God the glory.' The next

We Must Have Waterworks.
The question as to whether we
will have water works in Jennings
or not is practically settled. It
is almost universally agreed that
our city must have a system of
waterworks for fire protection, if
for no other purpose. The only
question at issue is whether the
city shall own and operate a
aystem or shall a franchise be
granted to a private corporation
No city or town of importance
thinks of granting a waterworks
franchise to individuals. The
RECORD sincerely hopes that the
city will put in a system as other
towns are doing.

Lest I should over tax your
generosity or tire your readers
I will close here.
Have just learned the full par
ticulars of the sad catastrophe
that has as a besom of destruc
tion, swept away so much of
your beautiful little city in fire
and smoke. This terrible con
flagration spreading consterna
tion and desolation in its walk,
has come like a thunder cloud
from a clear sky, and in the busi
est season of the year, to a thrif
ty business like, and deserving
people. Allow me, just here,and
through the columns of the"REc
ORD" to express my sympathy
to my many friends there in the
time to this tryingordeal through
which they are passing. May
Jennings rise from the burning
cinders and ashes of her former
self to the glorious future that
lies ahead of her.
Truly and Sincerly,
W. F. VANVALKENBURGH.
Brown Funk a Hero.
This morning at 9:05 as a
through freight train was com
ing through the yards at about
25 miles per hour. and when in
about 100 feet of the crossing,
close to Remage's store, a little
girl 5 or 6 years ran up on the
track. Mr. Funk saw her and
ran and snatched the child out
from in front of the engine. Just
as he got the child off, the engine
went steaming by. He cleared
the track about three feet with
the child. This was a very nar
row escape from death. He
risked his life to save another.

TO TRY A SCHIEME
Her Army Leaders Will Try
to End the War Ere
London, Nov. 11-According
to the Daily News, Major Gener
al Ian Hamilton, who sailed Sat
urday for South Africa to. act as
i.ord Kitchener's chief of staff,
takes a plan prepared in London
for a more vigorous campaign
with view of ending the war be
tore the coronation festirities
"General Hamilton's appoint
ment," says the Daily news. "is
part of a plan arranged after the
king's return from the continent
about six weeks ago. Unless
Lord Kitchener should decline to
be complaisant, the new scheme
is likely to develop about the be
ginning of the year."
'The Welsh Jou rnal has the fol
lowing to say about the oil situa
tion at that place:
"Practically the oil situation is
unchanged. The only great strike
was in landing the drill through
a ten-inch rock. The manage
ment, as well as expert drillers,
say that with the great auount
of oil that has been coming up
daily there is no doubt that a
paying well will be struck. At
this writing the well lacks 400
feet of being as deep as Jennings
No. 1. Mayor C. E. Smith, the
Port Arthur oil expert, was a
visitor at the well Wednesday,
and predicted success for the
Woods well No. 1.
The well of the Crowley Oil
and Mineral Co. has been sunk
to a depth of over 250 feet and
the workgoes on uninterruptedly
although the drilling is not so
rapid as could be desired.
Work was begun this morning
laying the foundation for the tine
$25,000 building of the Citizens
bank, corner Main and North
Market street. Work will be
rushed on this building and it
will very likely be occupied with
in 90 days.
On the Old site.
The Jennings Banking &Trust
Co. moved to their temporary
building on the site of the burned
building this Imorning. Things
are beginning to look a little
natural around that corner.
