Does not the latter depend on the ex tent of the privations? Prof. Robert Hamilton Powell, physical director at the University of Mississippi, has taken a course in the Japanese art of jiu-jitsu, at Ashe ville, N. C., and will introduce it at the University of Mississippi this fall. Natchez is behaving beautifully. It is true that before she became a storm center she was rather nervous; as soon as, however, the real danger came she righted up and is facing the situation with unflinching firmness and dignit y. The Board of Trustees of the Uni- versity of Mississippi appointed Prof. Dabney Lipscomb to the professor- ship of Civics and Political Economy at the Industrial Institute and Col- lege for young ladies, at Columbus.

As will be seen by a letter from Judge Kimbrough,in this issue,Holmes County will have no Circuit Court this fall, and cotton growers need not stop picking cotton, even for an hour whenever the weather is favorable; that is when the dew is not too heavy in the morning, and the sun too ex cessively hot in the middle of the day.

The people of the South, especially those of Mississippi, are by no means united in wishing for an early frost, A considerable amount of land, account of the unusual rains in May, were planted the beginning of June and much was hoped from them in event of a late killing frost. Then there are those who, yellow fever, wished for an early frost. From latest reports of the cotton army worms, all may now unite in wishing or praying for early frost, since the worms are beginning to dispose of all the late planting of cotton. on it, ! j in the owing to an now A German engineer says that he can empty a church in thirty seconds.

Through the efforts of this committee, and the United Daughters of the Confederacy, as well as the help of a few of the schools and indiv iduals, there stands in the hands of the treasurer to the credit of the "Monument Fund" about five hundred dollars. At the meeting of the U. C. V. on the first Monday of .Sept, of the pres ent year, there was subscribed by the few members present, one hundred and forty-two dollars, each and every veteran present pledging himself to do any and everything in his power to secure any and every amount of mon ey to further the object. A resolu tion was also passed, requesting the various schools throughout the Coun ty to give such entertainment as they might see fit, fixing the entrance fee at any price that might suit them and to turn the proceeds thereof, to the treasurer, (who is Mr. W. L. Young cashier of the Bank of Lexing ton) with the amount stated, already in the treasury, and the hearty port of the people throughout the County, the Committee and veterans are encouraged to believe that the necessary funds will not be long de layed. When it is remembered that the following Captains, organized compa nies at the following places, viz; Lex ington, Capt. L. R. Page, Capt. I). . 1 . Red, Capt. J. I.. Watford, Capt. I. F. Harrington, Capt. .J. T. McBee, Capt. J. P. Povall, Capt. and J. M. Wilson; Durant, Capt. J. A.Cason; Richland, Capt. Wade; Emory, Capt. W. C. Red; and that the surviving wives, sons and daughters, brothers and sisters and sup grand children of the members of these various companies are scattered throughout the length and breadth of mir county, it should indeed, be a mat ter of surprise and regret, that the shaft lias not been towering skyward long since. Let me suggest to you, Mr. Editor, and through you to the good people of Holmes County, that the soldiery represi nting the county were among out their life's blood on the fields of Shiloh, the best who poured Chickamauga Fredericksburg—in fact in almost Gettysburg every battle of the war occurring be tween the Mississippi River and the Atlantic Ocean, and from the Gulf of Mexico to the Ohio and Potomac riv ers and beyond, the bones of the majority, of these soldiers, bur ied throughout the length and breadth of our southland, and many, many in prison cemeteries, with few exceptions, marked. Through the instrumentality ot the ( olonel of a Federal Regiment an Arch lias been erected to the pris on dead of Camp "Chase" at Colum bus, Ohio, at the entrance to the Cem etery, with the inscription"Americans" ami on decoration day, this Colonel with hundreds of the citizens of Co lumbus, collect flowe un ts from their own people, as well as from cities, towns and hamlets throughout the south, and deck these unmarked Chicago, 111 ., has already erected a shaft at Camp "Douglas" or is making an effort to d Federal soldier, a citizen of our eoun ty, has contributed five dollars to our | Monument fund, and only regrets his inability to do more, a mounds. A 0 so. If those who fought us, have such a profound re spect for the Confederate soldier, how shall we the living kinspeople and lin eal deseendents, escape the condemn; tion of future generations should we fail to perform such a sacred duty? This Monument will be history i bronze or marble; it will illustrate eventful period in ourCounty's historv; it will 1 in an commemorate the fame and gallantry of all her Confederate Sol diers; it will attest the undaunted courage which won triumphant victo j ries against fearful odds. i fail or halter when reve'rsea came: it • «* <* ** * »«*» are the proud heritage of our people: yea, more than this, Mr. Editor and did not when you and I and the small remnant of the old soldiers who are still livincr have passed to the other shore, it will be a silent reminder to the ris county youth of generations yet unborn. °f the principals for which we fought and that if this Republic is to stand as a government "of the people ' by the people and for the people", these principles must live on coextensive with time itself, and that they will he perpetuated only, through the pure Anglo-Saxon blood of the south.

The work will not be hard and need not be long; a short time in town and community will suffice. not be large; but the larger the better If the; blood relatives of the county Confederates would each contribute small amount, these small amounts when put together would lie ample for the purpose. those who are desirous of contribut ing. who have not the opportunity of handing it to some one who is collect ing, they can send it direct to the treasurer, or to me, and if there are those who are willing to undertake any part of the work, and are not certain as to how best to proceed, if they will write me J will take pleasure in advising them. gest that all go to work in ( heir own way and do the best they can.
