a triumph of art in the amateur

E. J. Clark died in Bolivar
Tuesday morning, February 24th,
aged 70 years, liis remains were
interred in Union Cemetery TueS'
day afternoon, Rev. Nevill Jovner,
of St. James' Parish, officiating.
Deceased was a native of England
and came to America in 1867 and to
Bolivar about fifteen years ago.
Honest, accommodating and courle
ous, he had many friends. Mr.
Clark was married four times. One
child in England and one, Mrs.
Katie Tate, of this place, and his
present wife survive him. A touch
ing incident connected with his last
illness is the fact that T.R.B. Law
rence, of Fulton, Tenn., a life long
friend who came with him from
England, left home and business on
learning of his sickness to come to
his bedside and remained with him
to the last. The love of the two
equaled that of David and Jona-
The "Sigma Beta Kappa" was
last entertaiued by Miss Jennie
Cunningham'. The feature of the
evening was a "Musical Guessing
Game," over which the guests puz
zled until refreshments were served
Miss Edith Wellman bore away the
first prize, which was a quaint
burnt wood placque. The second
prize, a tastefully mounted picture
of the charming little hostess was
awarded to Miss Loretta Calder. A
merry laugh arose when Miss Flor
ence Capers displayed her booby
prize, a hand painted guitar, to
which was attached a card, bearing
the invitation, "have a pick on me."
Delicious refreshments were served
by Miss Cunningham and Miss Gor
don. On the face of each menu
card was a dainty design and an ap
propriate quotation from Shakes
peare. Miss Cuuningham's room
was artistically decorated with ev
ergreens. When the evening ended
the guests declared that it was one
of the most delightful they bad ev
er spent at St. Katharine's.

The County Jail.
At the January term of Circuit
Court, the grand jury submitted a
report to Judge Woods, which re
port the Court ordered presented to
the next term of Quarttrly Court.
From the grand jury's report, we
make the following extracts:
"We have visited the county jail
in a body and we find that the
Sheriff is doing his full duty by the
prisoners committed to his care, and
is keeping the jail in as good a san
itary condition as could be expected
under the circumstances.
"We would recommend however,
that the Couuty Court have a com
mittee appointed to examine into
the sewerage of the jail and to recom
mend that improvements be made in
"We further find that no separate
department is provided for the sep
aration of miles and females, or for
the separation of whites and blacks,
except when locked in their cells,
and we would recommend that the
County Court make Buch orders as
to remedy this defect.
"We find that the mattresses at
the jail are laid upon the iron floor,
and ve suggest that bunks be pro
vided, to be placed in the cells, upon
which the. bedding may rest, in
stead of being on the floor. The
iron flooring is entirely too cold for
the comfort and health of the prison
ers to put mattresses upon, and we
recommend immediate attention as
to this matter."
Card of Thanks.
We desire to express our sincere
thanks to the good people of Bol
ivar for the many kindnesses shown
us recently, when friendship was
needed and appreciated, and to as
sure them that they will always hold
a warm place in our hearts and will
ever be remembered in our prayers
