Resolutions of Respect.
Whereas, the great Master of the
Universe has called from labor here
to his reward in the eternal world,
that noble workman, Thomas Turner,
who was born in Anson county, North
Carolina, on Jun° 3, 1822, and moved
to Holme t county, Mississippi, in 1859.
Brother Turner was made a Mason
in old Eureka lodge at Richland in
1860, of which he ever remained a
faithful member to the day of his
death, which occurred January 2,
1904; therefore be it
Resolved, by Eulogy Lodge No.248,
A. F. & A. M., that in the death of
Brother Turner we have lost a true
and faithful member, his childrc n a
wise counselor, the community a good
citizen, and that his death is very
much deplored by his brethren.
Resolved, (2d) That we hereby ex
tend our sincere condolence to tbe
bereaved family.
Resolved, (3rd) That copies of these
resolutions be furnished for publica
tion to Lexington Advertiser and the
Durant News.

A Card of Thanks.
Mr. Editor.
Will you kindly permit me a brief
space in lyour columns to voice the
impulses of gratitude in expressing
my heartfelt thanks to the many
friends, who stood by me so truly
and supported me so ably in the re
cent supreme sorrow and bereavement
of my life. During the whole of the
continuous vigils, as the slow hours
of agony "dragged their weary length
along." there was never a moment
when there was not from one to a
number, just at hand, ready to per
form any service that one brother or
sister may perform for another—and
so skillfully, that there was not even
break in the daily routine of house
hold affairs.
May no one of these over lack a
friend to minister to them as they
have ministered to me; and that the
great Author of Love may reward
each with a specific benediction is the
earnest wish of
Their grateful friend,
Mrs. R. M. Bridgforth.

Although the Russian govc:ament
fancies itself secure Horn the i.iue.ann
tio'ns of the
conspirators against il :
integrity, who have been exiled to the
barren wastes or the noisome mines
of Siberia, it is by no mean- certain
that all danger from this source has
been overcame. The exiles, as well
as the general population, are striving
to organise resistance against the au
thorities. The number of escape : and
attempted escapes Is increasing. Help
ing hands are extended on all sides.
In England and in other countries
money is collected and sent to Si
beria so as to facilitate the escape of
political prisoners.
The jailers themselves and the
troops or police are sometimes pur
posely careless in the execution ot
their duties. That some persons in
authority sympathize with the revo
lutionists is further demonstrated by
the fai t that a recent circular, though
headed "absolutely secret," has never
theless fallen into revolutionist hand3.
It is entitled: "Instructions Given to
the Governor by His Excellency tbe
Governor General of the Town of Ir
kutsk, Count ICoutayssoff. in 1^03."
This document is worded as follows,
and gives a picture ot what this high
official thinks of the present situa
"According to the reports concern
ing tho surveillance of the political ex
iles who have reached the place of
their exile, and who are there submit
ted to public control,' I remark that
their frequent escapes and the unau
thorized journ.ys they make, going be
yond Siberia, are due to the lack of
proper watchfulness. The authorities
content themselves with sending offi
cial reports. According to the in
formation supplied, taking as a basis
the reports of the department of po
lice of August 1 and September 14 last,
which are numbered 7,201 and 8,20',. it
is easy to see that the exiles have di
rect relations with the revolutionary
league. THey take an active part in
the criminal work done in Siberia by
the league committees. The object,
therefore, for which these persons
were exiled has not been attained.
"The lack of proper watchfulness is
more particularly evident, in the dis
tricts of Minusinsk and Atchinsk,
which are within the government. At
Enisseisk not only do the exiles often
escape or travel to other places with
out being authorized to do so. but it
has been clearly shown that the ex
iles Kracikoff, Dr. Heycine, Pokrov
sky, Arklianguelslty, and others, en
tertained direct relations with labor
"In order to put an end to the crim
inal action of the political exilis, 1
recommend all the police agents in
the country who are under my au
thority to watch continually the pri
vate life of the exiles. For this pur
pose a police must be organized for
the surveillance of all places to
which exiles are sent. This po
lice must draw up a daily report on
each exile, according to the accom
panying formula. Those individuals
who by their manner of living give
rise to the suspicion that they are
acting for criminal groups, should he
subjected without warning to exam
ination. The commissioner of police
of the district should give orders for
these examinations, indioatng at the
same time their motive. The exam
inations should be made frequently.
"It is absolutely necessary to read
the entire correspondence of the po
Itical exiles. Individuals who are sus
pected of bad political intentions must
not be allowed to live in the same
houses as the exiles, but should be
sent away from the exiles' quarters."

There were three of them, and they
were charming young things of the
matinee girl variety. They had bright
eyes and rosy cheeks, and they were
all talking at once, a* is characteristic
of their type. A Greek florist poked a
bunch of violets under the nose of the
prettiest, says the New York Times.
"Fina violet," he cooed. "Looka nice
on lady dress."
"They are pretty." said the young
thing. "How much?"
The Greek smiled with courtly grace.
"To lofely lady a-twenta cent."
"Three for 75?" asked the girl with
lightning calculation.
"Three for a-seventy-flve if my lady
say so," said the Greek with humility.
The bargain was clinched, and the
three young things were arranging the
blossoms among their furs when one,
who had been wearing a rather puzzled
expression for a few minutes, suddenly
"Ruth, it oughtn't to have amounted
to 75 cents. Didn't he say 20 cent*
There was an awful silence while the
three young things laboriously worked
the problem out in mental arithmetic.
Then Ruth, with her cheeks all aflame,
turned to the smiling Greek.
"You've overcharged me," she said.
"It ought only to have been 00 cents."
But the Greek's Bmiie only broadened.
"The lady mada her owna bargain,"
ho said, with a Chesterfleldian wave of
his hand.

young things had nothing more to say;
but somehow, quite suddenly, as it were,

Department— Large Fund
llelut Rained.
In a paper published iu a recent is
sue of a journal devoted to the ge
ographic interests of the country, F. H.
Newell, chief engineer in charge of the
reclamation of arid lands tn the west,
details at considerable length the prog
ress of the work. Some of the facts
he mentions are presented here.
The reclamation fund now amounts
to about $ 1.5,000,000, and is increas
ing rapidly. The fund is accumulated
under the provisions of the recla -a
tion law, which set apart the proceeds
from the sale of public lands iu 13
territories for the construction of ir
rigation works.
The land sales in 1901 started the
fund with $3,000,000; In 1902 the sum
of $4,000,000 was added, and in 1903
about $8,000,000. The more irrigation
works are built the more public land
within reach of water supply will be
come marketable, and thus the prog
ress of the work will help to swell the
As the water is supplied, the owners
of the land benefited will pay for what
they use, and will ultimately pay for
the entire cost of the improvement.
All the money they pay will be turned
back into tho fund, and thus will be
used over and over again, for the build
ing of storage reservoirs.
When finally the limit of water at
tainable has beer reached, and it is
not practicable to irrigate more land,
the entire fund will be turned into the
general treasury.
The work of surveying the western
streams to ascertain the amount of
water supplied, how the lands may
be reclaimed by irrigation, has been in
progress since 1888, and is still going
on. The wor e of building the storage
reservoirs ha ; only just begun in Ne
vada and Arkiona.
Borne of tho states and territories
from which the largest, contributions
to the fund are received, because they
include the greater part of the acreage
sold, will dlorive least benefit fro m the
fund. The contribution of North Da
kota is very large, but there will be
little irrigation in that state, becauso
irrigable lands and. an adequate water
supply are hard to find.
Oklahoma is a large contributor, but
with its sub-humid climate it has tit
tle need of Irrigation. On the other
hand, little land is sold in Nevada,
and its addition to the fund is small,
but the state affords the largest op
portunity for irrigation development.
Colorado is the greatest mining
state, but the proceeds from the small
irrigation area in Colorado are al
ready more valuable than the gold and
silver produced. The area of land
that can be reclaimed by irrigation is
relatively small,, but if two or three
per cent, of the vast area of arid land
is ultimately reclaimed, and put un
der cultivation, it will mean a pop
ulation in the. western half of the
United States almost as great as that
now r in the eastern part of the coun
Nearly all the land has value in one
way or another, and the grazing in
dustry will always occupy 80 or 90
per cent of the arid lands. But tho
value of the grazing products w ill not
be so great as that of the crops raised
on the reclaimed lands.

February, 1892, an order was issued by
the secretary of agriculture fixing the
northern boundary of the infected
area, as nearly as had been determined
up to that time. This boundary has
scarcely been changed since that time,
and remains to-day as the government's
quarantine line, across which cattle
from the south are not allowed to pass
except at certain times of the year and
under certain pro-bribed conditions.

The jewelry trade of the country is
cautioned to beware of a man about five

several retail jewelers iu the eastern

His method is to go to a jewelry store,
look over some diamond rings and then
disappear. In a short time he conies
again to the jewelry store and asks that
the rings be sent to his house for clo < r
the unsuspecting jeweler, who
goes himself with, the rings to the house
or sends a clerk. The man accomp
him to the house, and. after making a
show of ; xaminlng the d

his mother, who, he declares, is in the
next room. He takes the diamonds into
the "next room," and that is the last the
jeweler ever sees of them. On one or
two occasions the jeweler or clerk be

man disappears through the door which
leads into the "next room," and follows

pluck it out and cast it from th*e;
for it is profitable for thee that
of thy members should perish, and
not that thy whole body should b*
cast into hell.
And if thy right hand offend the*,
cut it off and cast it from thee; for
it is profitable for thee that one of
thy members should perish, and not
that thy whole body should be cast
into hell.
