Work has so far proirre.-sed on ibi. important enterprise that a pretty dear nea can be formed of the dimensions nf the several buildings and the extent of the business to be carried on, and aa the work progresses the interest increases. The building for cotton seed is two hundred and fifty feet long, and another building to be located sixty or seventy feet east of this, for hulls ami m.ni will be two hnndrod and sixty feet long. Mr. white, the brick-work contrac tor, is making rapid progress on the house fer the machinery, and to ex tract oil from the seed an immense power is required to he had with very costly apparatus. Much of this must be placed before the house is built, and it is work that can be done only by men who have tne most accurate knowledge of their business. A misplanning of some of the parts by only the fraction of an inch, may require alterations that will cost hundreds of dollars. There are thousands of pieces and they must be so adjusted as to make a perfect whole, and all the machinery work smoothly. It is to the men who are capa ble of doing inch perfect work that the world Is indebted for its greatest progress. It will not be long before more tall chimneys will mark the progress now going on in Macon, and we hope the day is not far distant when chimneys still taller will tower above these. But what is the use of having all these good things if we do not have good roads to lead to them? That mnut be the foundation of our futnre pros perity, and unless some steps are taken to improve our highways, Macon must continue to be known a ' 'the old stick in the mud." W. P.

Dr. Isham Harrison Dead. Dr. Isham Harrison, of Brooksviile, Miss., died last Sunday night at Lau derdale Springs, where he had gone hoping his health might bo benefitted. His death was quite sudden and as a grent shock to bis relatives and friends. About a week ago a throat tronhle as serted itself and thinking it was only a minor complaint he went to Lunderdalo for a few weeks rest and recreation. He grew rapidly womn and on Sunday night strangled to death. Dr. Harris was one of Noxubee's leading and promising young men, being at the time of his death, only 35 years of age. He stood 'ugh professionally and personally and his death beroaves a wide circle of devoted friends and brings sorrow to numberless relatives. The interment was at Deerbrook last Monday. Gen. Lee, Mr. Chas. Sher rod, Mrs. E. T. Sykes, Mr. E. T. Sykes, Jr. , and others from this city went down to the funeral. Co lumb.is Dispatch. The death of this able physician and polished gentleman was a seyere blow to his family, friends and the commun ity where his valuable services were indispensable, and it will be difficult to find a man who can fully rill his place in the confidence and esteem of the peoplo among whom he was reared and lived so long. Mr. W. D. Hell, brother-in-law of Dr. Harrison met the body at Macon on Monday evening and it was carried through the country to Decrbroak. The sincere sympathy of the entire I community is extended to tho bereaved family. Dr, Minor, last Monday, received a telegram from Decatnr, notifying him of ths death of his brother, Lncian, the night before. He. was tronbled with asthma and subject to smothering pells. His wife was awakened by his struggles in one of those spells, and she went immediately for a doctor who lived close by, but Dr Minor died be fore medical aid reached him . He was in his 7Sth year and although not strong physically, was capable of doing much work, and this he persisted in doing to the day f his death. Died-On Monday, July Hi, Mr. D. B. Shepherd, a citizen of Macon for ab:ut forty-five years. He had been aa invalid for a long time, and not able to attend to any business. He left a large family of children, two or three of tender years, but the others are married, or in business for themselves He was bnried in the Odd Fellows' cemeterv. services by Revs. Mr, Cam eron and Grace. One by one the old Mtizens are dropping off, and soon the . d generation will be numbered with the past. Notice, Voter.
