Byrd,, of Bowling Green, stopped over'a few minutes Thursday enroute to Yazoo Citv.on a profession al visit. It seems that time has dealt gently with the 'Doctor, there being no bald spots nor gray hairs on his head. Prof. J. H. Fuqua was a "between train"' visitor Wednesday. In the past few years, we are infin itely sorry to say, in this great empire of ours, the land of the few and the home of the many, there has been a slow hut decided change, we might say retrogation, in the editorial col umns of some of the so-called classical journals, the mighty solons of the north and north-west,, the lords of lords and kings of kings who scorn the teachings of the Lowly Nazarene, who commanded that we do unto oth ers as we would tie done by—who smile in derision at the commands of an Almighty God pull their cloaks of hypocrisy closer about them, dip their pens of deceit and conceit in t he black ink of slander and immorality and spurt lurid,, hell-belching senten ces of vituperation through their me dium, the subsidized press, the yellow* journal, the hell-creating, pusillanim ous social stink-weed, that, to the nos trils of decency is as undesirable as 'tis dirty. And this avalanche of poi sonous slander is directed at oneSouth ern man and gentleman ! Why is the vials of wrath of these gods of false hood turned loose on this one man? Is it because he chooses to wear his hair long, or because he aspires to the senate! What has he ever done to give these negro loving, back sliding, hypocrite cause to speak of him as "the unspeakable Vardanian ;" fs it because that he, like a man, speaks his sentiments and has the strength of his convictions? Who can say, and truthfully say, that the black brute that infests our land,as did the plague infest the land of Egypt, a menace to home and fireside, is not an issue and a burning issue? An issue that can now lie settled by legislation, that later on will have to lie settled by bloodshed. A warning has been sound ed through the death of some of our prominent citizens who have met their untimely end at the hands of a vicious brute, a brute who had received a "higher education" which education has made a loafer and murderer of him, and which education was given him by the white man, and has made the negro as good, in his own ostima tion, as the white race. The man, who will, from biased motives, take the negro's part in this the important issue that now confronts the Southern people ought to be hung by thfe side of his "protege." Civil Engineer Stanfield is surveying Lynden plantation this week. The Ladies Aid Society,an auxiliary of the Methodist church here, gave a very elaborate dinner Saturday in one of the new stores on Main street, that have not yet been occupied.

Mr, lewis reports Gulfport as still being in the progressive state and predicts a rise in real estate that will enrich the proper ty holders of that city, which is soon to tie the Queen City of Mississippi. The question of a night watchman is being agitated by the public minded citizens of our town. Tis hoped that this remedy will prove effectual in putting a stop to the promiscuous use of artillery on the streets after dark which is not calculated to ease the nerves of an excitable person.

Etoen* AwnrRgor^Pre^_ t Coffins, Caskets, Burial Robes. M. M. RAYNER. AND NOW THE. fARMER, Noticing an article in The Adver tiser's pages last week, signed "W. P. ", who had a few words to say in regard to the fanners selling their cot ton direct to the spinners, in which he went on to say that the spinners were gathering themslves together not only to have a "good time" but to devise some way to get the cotton cheaper from the tanner. Of course that is what they met and held a con vention for; and he said that the far mers were trying to knock the so call ed "middle man" or "speculator" out; and I can say one thing that the farmers can sell their cotton cheaper to the spinnners than the so called ' 'middle man ' ' could; because he has to make his living out of the profit he makes on the poor old farmer when he sells him, (the speculator) his cotton. Upon the shoulders of the fanner the whole world depends, because if it were not for the farmer the world would suffer for sufficient clothes, and I dare sav that all of the speculators, wherever they may be, live off the products of the farmer who toils and sweats during the summer months while the speculator sits in his office thinking of nothing but dealing in futures which is no more than gamb ling. The contributor also stated that if speculation tended to make prices lower in the cotton market that the spinners would he the last person* in the world to try to abolish it. Of course the speculators may think that they can sell cheaper to the spinners than the farmers could, out suppose the farmer tries and see if he can't sell cheaper, if they can't sell cheaper let them nocket the money that the specu lators make off them when they give them so little for their cotton. He also stated that the farmer would cut a pretty figure selling direct to the spinner. 1 want to know if the farm er hasn't got about as much sense sell ing cotton as any speculator ever dared to have? Now Mr. W. P. if you are a speculator and all of the crowd had better be hunting them up an old one eyed mule and come out and help the farmer maac cotton, if you want to continue in working for cotton ; it not you will staive, for the farmers are going to go! vheir prices for their cot UNION MAN.
