It.doesnt matter how many are appointed to that high office, since it is honorary more than anything else. The office wouldn't furnish a tobacco fiend in the weed The condition of the back yards of Durant arc simply horrible. Durant is one of the prettiest towns in the state, but we'll lose our "rep" if we don't clean up. The Business League had a committee appointed to look after the sanitary condition of the town/and there's work for them to do right now.—Durant News. Durant is not the only town where backyards need sanitation. There are others. That is as it Aside from the misguided dupes oi others, all opposition to the ratifica tion of the Panama canal treaty rests first on the sinister influence of trans continental railroads, seeking to kill the measure by delays and by divid ing its friends into conflicting camps; next comes the intense desire for the Nicaragua route or none ; and lastly, the/insane preference of killing the measure altogether, rather than hav ing it started under a republican ad ministration. Editor Seitzler of the Gulfport News, has accused David Holt, a ver satile young man who does heavy work on the Biloxi Herald, of eating mul lets—and that's the unpardonable sin down on the coast. If Holt were to retaliate by telling the people of the coast about the bullfrogs that Seitzler used to eat before they shed their tails, then the governor would have to'call out the stated militia to quell a But David would not dare to riot. do it Seitzler is a fighter. .The fact is that" he had to let.ve_ Hattiesburg because he had licked every jnan in the.town, anfl the monotony was more Greenwood than he could stand. Commonwealth. Daniel/J.!Sully, who up to a few days ago posed as.the friend of cotton in New York, played a sorry trick on all who placed confidence and money in his pretensions. He played the same game a year ago and loped out for Europe. Before starting his play this season he came to New Orleans, and while being fed and drenched with the best vintage of France, set his net to catch the suckers about the cotton exchange down there. Daniel is tbe genuine article of the northern and eastern promoter, being plausible, persistent and patient, and don't jet k until he has his fish well hooked, then he pulls them and gets out of the country until the excite ment of the catch has died out, and calls it taking a rest. his of of by they They our town to The Gorman resolution in the United States Senate, asking the President for a history of the uprisings and revolutions in Panama of former years, and the actions, if any taken bv the United States at the time, was adopt ed. This resolution supplies republi tnaterial, since it ad can campaign mitB the Senate is not informed, but ignorant of Panama history and its connection with this country. The resolution also admits that- the Senate Jacks either in formation or ability to acquire unaided the necessary knowl edge, and that on this subject the President is authority. Gorman's resolution does not call for a report of action of this administration, but for a presentation of past history. The President's reply will be a lesson in called for by those who must realized their deficiency before is history have I ■■ 1 pahlialy aaking for the information. An Erroneous Idea. An iir.pres.-ion has gone out and is i taking the rounds of the people, re j suiting from certain blind tiger ac quittals at our recent circuit' court that, is calculated/unless counteract ed, to work much evil, by encouraging j crime. Case after case in our last court, the evidence of, men who had j been indicted was accepted against the direct testimony of J good men. 1 In explanation of these verdicts, hith erto unknown in Holmes county, it has gone abroad that an old law was resurrected which the court acknowl edged in its instructions to the jury, and which is that, where a defendant denies his guilt under oath, no convic tion can be had on the testimony of one witness- If this was the law, then blind tigers and all other crimi nals have the aid and protection of law in their criminal daeds if they careful not to sell liquor, to steal, rob, burn murder in the presence of but one witness. Such a law would place a premium on crimes skillfully perpe Except as to a very few' crimes, such as treason, which to be effective must be open and far-reach ing, and perjury where something more is needed than oath against oath, any criminal can be lawful and justly convicted on the evidence, even though the defendant and others may swear to innocence. Our judge granted no instruction declaring'directly or indirectly that it needed more than one witness to overthrow the sworn denials of a man' charged with retailing or like crimes, ] nor that such denial, even when backed by"the testimony of other witnesses, nullified the evidence of one state witness. Our laws leave to juries/the question of'saving what witnesses will be believed. It was the juries and not the judge who effected the acquittals 1 on in trated in The following from'the United -States secretary of the treasury looks J like we are going to have a canal: Last Thursday Secretary Shaw sent the following letter to all national bank depositories holding special gov ernment deposits regarding prospect ive calls for funds on account of the Panama canal purchases: "Sir—It sesms probable that the '" government will be called upon in the near future to pay $50,000,1)00 pre liminary to the construction of an the inter-oceanic canal.

S.jN.'Sample's bill amending the existing''primary"election law, is a good one and removes all and sin gular objections developing in "the last primary election. It abolishes the electoral college feature—an imposition upon common sense-and decent fairness. It pro vides that a candidate must receive a majority of the popular vote in the first primary, or run the'gauntlet in the second with , the n xt highest competitor. The cost of primaries must be di vided equally between state and coun ty candidates in order to'prevent the mulcting of'the former,'as was done in the last primary. The surplus re maining in the ; hands of ^executive committees, after all expenses are paid, must be returned to candidates pro rata. In case there is but one candidate for an office, state or county, the ex ecutive committee may declare him the nominee fifteen days before elec tion and thus "save the expense of canvass. Mr. Sample was wise enough to let Section 1 of the present bill/remain as it is. This section makes it man datory that all 'nominations for state, district and county officers/ shall be made on the same day throughout the state by primary election.—Water Valley Progress. a Jackson, Miss., Feb. 9, 1904. Lexington Advertiser: As a legislator, I vote my convic tions on the merits of each measure as it arises.

Tln-na I A Russian peasant named Masunin. of the village of Alagir, near Vladi kavkas, in the Caucasus, had for some time shown signs of mental derange ment. His relatives ascribed this to j an evil spirit, and resorted to the local ! sorcerer, who is to be found in every ] Russian village, and is supposed to j cure ait kinds of diseases by means of ,, , spells. He ordered that Masunin should be | washed with "charmed" water every! day at sunset and sunrise. In spite of j the patient's opposition, this injunc tion was strictly carried out. His con- ed dition. however, became worse, and at last resulted in religious mania, under the influence of which Masunin cut off his right ear. his tongue, three fingers of his left hand, and three toes of his are as M. a left foot. On tbe police investigating the case he wrote on a piece of paper that he had crippled himself because these parts of the body were unnecessary. The people are now beginning to consider him as a saint, and make pil grimages to him. vice on pieces of paper, peasants believe to be endowed with special powers. Instead of sending him to an asylum his relatives are now making money by selling his oracular notes of advice.

Dr. since , Archibald K. Ward, veterinarian of the the ! University of California agricultural bet- department,in pursuing investigations to many discover whether there is any relation ship between this and bovine or human tuberculosis. I 1 urtherinore, the cousid '-ration of the possible significance of Key- fowl tuberculosis has awakened the de sire to know whether or not the deadly organisms are present in the egg. Both cen- these points art vitally important, and and the animal industries department, in for conjunction with the recently estab Hshed poultry experiment station, will make a careful study of the caws that are brought to their attention. Dr. Ward, although just commenced on these investigations, has this tc say on the second point: "It appears to be true that hens badly infected do rot lay. In the 30 post-mortems of tube nations hens that, have come- under the writer's bservation, but one hen contained an egg. The thorough cooking to which poultry is subjected renders rather re lote the possible danger of human in Now that his experiments with dis eased fuypls in California have demon strated the fact that tuberculosis is one ■ases par sad and had fection by ingestion. Careful observa tions to determine if newly hatched chicks suffer from tuberculosis will throw light on the question of tubercle bacilli in eggs."" Owing to the fact that tuberculosis in owls seldom kills a sufficient number yet, of the first d in his en of birds at one time to excite fear, its existence in a flock has come to be- re garded as a matter of course and has at tracted little attention front the own ers. Under the conditions obtaining in ♦ he poultry industry in' California. Dr. Ward says that all the individuals of an infect'd flock must be regarded as pos sible sources of danger to healthy birds. Taking advantage of the experience in the control of tuberculosis in caltle, he says that it will be easy to raise a flock of healthy chickens, provided they are kept constantly from contact with dis used birds or from land recently con taminated with tuberculous fowls. Since the life of a fowl Is so short, he predicts that such a procedure would result in the eradication of the disease in three or four years. to j ! ] to j i.atest xoveity of LONDON HAS A RAT SHOW. , i Exhibitor.!. | be | - , The most recent live stock novelty in of j London is the rat show, At one recently held in Cheltenham 60 rats were exhibit- i ed and judged. ■ at These are not the fierce rodents that infest buildings and sewers.

To demonstrate that the bugs actual ly ate mortar, all those captured were placed In a pall containing several pounds of the dried mortar.

The worn-out stomach of the over-fed millionaire is often paraded in the pub lic prints as a horrible example of the evils attendant on the possession of great wealth.
