T11K COXTKNDINO VACTIONS
ut Friar's Point had not conio in collision
an lar as lieonl from up to a late hour yes
terday, nml tho prevailing opinion Is that
there will be no Woodshed. Tho nrmod
negroes arc a motley throng of some 200
In number, variously mounted on mules
and spavined work horxes, without expe
rienced military lenders, and not a single
white faced person to counsel or advise.
Their military ogerutleM ara directed by
Militia Urlgadler Cenural Wm. Fence,
thiformer slave of Dr. .fames A. I'cdcc.
whose plantation la twelve miles back of
Friar's Point. Tho Urlgadler General's
old master Is n private In tho ranks of the
white lorces. The latter nrc directed by
Senator Alcorn and General Chalmers.
The cavalry, home 70 strong, are com
manded by n preacher named White, for
merly a (soldier iu a Tennessee regiment,
a prudent but brave man. They arc
aided by 40 lootmeii, tho whole variously
and Indifferently armed with repeating
pistols and shot-guns, briar hooks, and
anything they could pick up In the shape
Over In Tallahatchie county, which
adjoins Coahoma on the cast, Is an or
ganized company of white militia. These
were sent to by special messenger from
the Alcorn ami Chalmers party. Should
they march to their aid they will come
up directly hi the rear ol tho hostile
blacks. Kegardiug the appeal sent to
this city for volunteers, nodellulto action
had been taken up to a late hour la-t
evening, tho general temper being that
there would be no bloodshed, and even If
there Miould be a collision, the impres
sion I? that thu Chalmers party will be
able to lake cure of themselves.
TUIIMV AFTKItNOON'M DEMONSTIUTIO.Y.
it Is said that when the ho-tite blacks
approached the lower edge of the town
of Friar's Point lost Tuesday forenoon,
commanded by Urlgadler General Peace,
and between two and three hundred in
number, Shcritl Urown was unaware of
incir intentions, lie deprecated their
belligerent attitude and hastened to pre
vent them from entering the town.
While actually pushing them back, and
urging Fcacv, their leader, to avoid pre
cipitating a conflict, the rear eud of the
rabble pressed and crowded those In
front, and Hie disorder! v rabble presented
a confused and rcallvlauirhnblu nsix-ct.
It was then that General Chalmers ap
peared In front ol them and ordered their
dispersion. Peace tlieu marched his iranir
out to Sheriff Hidge, a mile and a half or
thereabouts to the south of town. Hear
Inir thev were nrenarltic to make an
other move with hostile intent, General
Chalmers marched for them iu good or-
uer. urcw lils party up within a lew hun
dred yards of thu negroes, and went for-
waru to ten mem to scatter or no would
lire upon them. They moved ofl, and
alter that nothing occurred of a threaten
in'' nature. The fever of excitement was
kept up by rumors, nearly all unreliable.

as if the darkies were calling each other
WHAT CAL'SKI) tiik TiioL'nu:.
The lirst Indication of intended trouble
ou the part of tho darkles was when
Shcrifl' llrown sent to this city for two
kegs of powder and 150 pounds of buck
shot, several weeks ago. It was shipped
to a merchant at Friar's Point, who never
rcccivcu it, uut when called upon to pay
thu freight bill discovered the ruse prac
ticed by llrown. Gen. Chalmers went to
Urown and plead with him to send it
away. Ueliig unsuccessful, thcfrlend ol
order began quietly the work ol prepara
tion iorticicusc, in me event ot violence.
K0LKI.Y A qCAIiRKI. OF FACT IOHS.
The urcvnllliiL' trouble In Coahoma Is
wholly n fiiiarrel between tmrtii fur.
merly pulling in tho same political traces
hut now divided against themselves. Pre
vious to the beginning of the discussions,
two years ago, Senator Alcorn controlled
the entire county, the colored voters go
ing for his measures en masse. Up to
that date none but white men held ofli
eial position ; the county was entirely free
irom tieni; trie political wncel seemeu to
turn smoothly, and not a single Ill
tempered person gave vent to the
slightest indications of spite or rivalry.
n uen mo race lor uovernor octween
Alcorn and Ames came up, Gen. Chal
mers, State Representative Urown (since
Shcrifl), Senator Alcorn's son. Major M.
S. Alcorn, and a number of others, went
strong for Ames, for whom they carried
the county by an overwhelming major
ity. Then John Brown was elected
Sheriff and M. S. Alcorn county clerk.
Since those events occurred contentions
have Increased and party feeling run
mountain high. Senator Alcorn entirely
lost control. As one ot the results of
tho campaign of 1873, the blacks slipped
Into ofllcc, and have managed badly.
DAMON BROWN AND PYTHIAS SMITH.
About six months ago a Bolivar county
negro named Smith made his appearance
nt Friar's Point. He went Uicro to visit
his wife, who was herself a visitor at
Shcrifl' Brown's house. Ho was a col
lego mate of Sheriff Brown at Oberliu,
Ohio. Smith nt tho time was State Sena
tor from Coahoma and Bolivar counties,
ou tho south. Ho was also a school fund
commissioner, nt a salary of SOOO per an
num ; also clerk for tho Attorney Gen
eral of tho State at $2000 more per an
num, and thinking one or two moro nice
places with good salaries, would not ex
ceed his talent and capacity, ho went to
work with his Irlcnd Slierifl Brown to be
come circuit clerk and chan
cery clerk of Coahoma, tho
two best places in the county. Tho
ticket concocted, self appointed, or any
thing it may bo called for it was never
nominated, tliouch thev dculirned It
should be was Johu Brown, colored, I
lor sncriu; .Major m. . Alcorn, (tno U.
S. Senator's son, and an excellent ex
Confederate olllccr). for county treasurer;
Smith, colored, cf Bolivar, for chancery,
and circuit clerk, and M. C. Prlddy,
white, an ox-Jonestown merchant, for
merly of this city, for tax assessor a
placo not worth very much In a financial
sense. This ticket. If successful, would
pull together, and should Brown's bonds
men go bick on him, tho chancery and
circuit clerk would accept most anybody
ho might offer In ll.ui of them.
A "I'KOI'LE'b" ticket.
In opposition to this scheme, a people's
ticket was proposed, Judge II. P. Held,
formerly or this city, and now General
Chalmers' law partner, offered himself
for sheriff. Julius Flagg, a clever col
ored man, raised hi tho vicinity, was
pronounced an available man for circuit
clerk, and Georgo Alcorn, n cousin of tho
senator, was proposed for the other
clerkship, with tho understanding that
he wnidil Irarli Flaffff how to nerfonn
his duties in the event of the success of
the ticket. It was to indorse tneso nomi
nations that a mas meeting was held last
Saturday, at which Senator Alcorn made
very cutting remarks about Brown and
some of his friends nnd supporters.
Ai.con.v'9 wo nAV noun:.
After the meeting culminated In a
threatened row, Senator Alcorn, siding
with Chalmers, Is said to have tlgurcd In
the affair, mounted on a bay horse, armed
with a double-barreled shotgun, nnd
thirsty for revengo against the Sheriff,
Brown, who had so soundly abused him
in his speeches through the cotintv.
Brown was exceedingly lively In some of
ms remarks, and called tnc benator
"Windy Jim," and other distasteful
names ever so many times. It is said
that the Senator's son, M. H. Alcorn, has
not been on speaking terms with his fa
ther since his election, to tho county
trcasurcrship, a( which time he also be
came a bondsman and supporterolShcrlll
A PcmlNtcut Whitlow Drrnker.
Ten years ago a man named lllchard
Hampton broke the shop window of a
harmless watchmaker in Woolwich, Kng
luud. He was sent to prison lor nine
mouths, and on the very day ol his dis
charge returned to Woolwich and smashed
tho same window. This time the court
gave him 18 months ; iiud once more, ou
the day his sentence expired, ho returned
and again broke the same window.
Ills third sentence was lor 10 years : but
thu other day he was, for good conduct,
discharged on a ticket of leave, having
served nearly eight years. Promptly,
forHio fourth time, he went straight to
Woolwich, and ouce moro smashed tho
same whitlow, and being thereupon
brought Into court for a fourth sentence,
he remarked that lie would break that
window us often as lie got the chance, for
tho rest of his life, lie is now iu for an
other ten years.

not altogether unfounded, prejudice
airulnst "patent medicine?." ouTn.'tn tho
small amount ot merit which manv of

as no patent has ever been asked for or
obtained upon them, nor have they been
urged upon the public m "cure-alls."
1 hey nre simply some favorite prescrip

have proved their superior remedial vir
tues iu the cure of the diseases lor which
they are recommended. Every practlclu
physician has his lavorltc remedies, whic
he oftenest recommends or uses, because
he has tho greatest confidence In their

niiow meir composition. . Kven
prescriptions aro usually written In a lan
guage unintelligible to any but the drug
gist. As much secrecy Is employed us
in the preparation of proprietary medl
clues. Docs the fact that an article is
prepared by a process known onlv to the
matiulacturer render that article les valu

Some persons, while nilmilting that
my medicines are good pharm.iceullc.il
compounds, object to them on the ground
that they arc too often ucd with IiimiIII
eicnt judgment. I propoo to obviate
this difficulty by enlightening the people
as to the structure nnd functions ol their
bodies, the cau.-es, character, and symp
toms of diseases, and by Indicating the
proper anil Judicious employment of my
medicines, together with such auxiliary
treatment os mny bo necessary. Such U
