Chalmers,, which occurred in Memphis last Satur day morning, removes one more of the very few remaining distinguished lead ers of the Confederacy. The brilliant record of Gen. Chalmers is familiar to Southerners, generally, and especially to Mlssissippians, among whom he lived. His record as a man, as a lawyer as a soldier are without a flaw or blemish. He was one of the most brilliant lawyers in all the great galaxy which has made Mississippi famed for its great lawyers. As a man, as a gentleman, undor any test of a gen tleman, he was without a superior. Kind-hearted, courteous, generous and hospitable, he was a most lovable com panion and friend. It was as a soldier, however, that Gen, Chalmers shone brightest. He himself felt a greater pride fn his mili tary career than in any of his other achievements. He was a model of dashing courage, of chivalric devotion to his cause and to his duty. He soon won the confidence, love and esteem of his comrades, which he held through all his after life. Gen. Chalmers had a brief but brill iant career in politics. He was soon gstranged from his party and the great majority of his people. For this he has been severely censured by some. But while his people could not follow him politically, be still retained their es teem and respect. He doubtless com mitted a grievous error, but it was one from which he atone suffered. Perhaps it was a fault—a weakness, but he had bright and lofty virtues sufficient to enable us to forget his faults in admi ration of his better qualities. It would be neither appropriate nor necessary to review Gen. Chalmers 1 war record here in detail—it is an open book to all the world, to which his countrymen can refer with pride and gratification. K jAsS Torturing Rheumatism * Is no respecter of persons—the healthy and vigorous are as liable to its attacks as the weak. The symptoms of the disease are almost unnoticed at first, so insidi ously do they steal over the body; gradually the little pains and stiff ness increase, until they develop greater inconvenience day by day. The knees, ankles and other joints of the body, ache constantly, swelling to several times their natural size; the patient finds himself unable to get around—is soon incapacitated for business, and later is confined to his bed, utterly helpless. It is not generally known that the usual treatment for Rheumatism is decidedly injurious to the system. The doctor is able ^relieve the first touch of the disease, but with the return of cold, disagreeable weather, the pains become sharper, and more constant, the nones ache more severely, and the disease gradually, but surely, possesses the entire body. Rheumatism is a disease of the blood, for which all physicians pre scribe potash, mercury and other mineral mixtures. The effect of these drugs is like adding fuel to the fire—hence the in- _ creasing severity of the disease. The right remedy for Rheumatism is a real blood medicine—one which is more than a tonic, promptly reaching and curing deep-seated blood diseases. Swift's Specific (S. S. S.) is the only known for obstinate blood diseases, and is the only blood remedy guaranteed purely vegetable, containing not a particle of potash, mercury or other minerals. Half the hobbling rheumatics in the world were made so by mineral remedies. I 1 The m .yjmr 431'i Right Remedy. cure I Mr. J. A. LeSeur, Atlanta's well-known architect, says; "For years I have suffered with Sciatic Rheumatism and often felt as if a frag ment of bombshell had passed through my left hip. I could pet absolutely relief, though many remedies were tried. After taking a few bottles of S. S. S., the disease grew less painful, and very soon disappeared entirely." Mr. Frank T. Reynolds, of Rome, Ga., writes: "I have suffered intensely with Muscu lar Rheumatism, which, at one time, kept me in bed for eiphtecn months. 1 took all kinds of treatment, and visited many famous springs, but could pet only te porary relief. S. S.

Says the Jackson Bureau of the Com mercial Appeal of Tuesday: The monotony of ordinary office life was broken for State Superintendent Kincannon this morning in a way altos gather unexpected, but at the same time not in a way that is exactly with out precedent. A female school teach er, whose name and address are with held for the present for obvious reasoos, submits a business proposition to the State superintendent, which he declines to accept as a matter of course. He has, however, put machinery in motion to establish the identity of the writer, who, by the way, prefixes her name with "Mrs." leading one to generously infer she is "a poor widder woman." This is not the first time Mr. Kincan non has had such propositions, but, strange as it may sound, it is a fact that in each and every instance they have come from women. The usual "P. S." was added in the form of an extra sheet of paper, on the top of which was inscribed the word "Confidential," and which was followed by this: "Would you sell me the questions of the first grade studies? If so, what would be the price of the questions? I am willing to pav you a reasonable price for them. You can rest assured if you were to sell me the questions I would not expose you to the public. I also ask the same of you." The Commercial Appeal has formed a news alliance with the New York Herald, an arrangement by which the former receives all the important war news published by the latter. The Commercial Appeal has had the frank ness to admit that "yellow" journalism has demonstrated its superiority as a nswsgathering agency, and it had the enterprise to get "in the push." True it claims the Herald is not a yellow ! paper, hut if there is any such thing as a yel.ow journal, the Herald is the yel lowest of the yellow. But as the term has come to he synonymous with news paper enterprise and first class news dissemination, our Memphis contempo rary may gladly welcome the charge of being tinged with a yellowish hue. Many over-zealous admirers of ex President Cleveland are demanding that the public consider that the $50, 0J0,000 emergency fund recently voted by congress for coast defenses was put in the treasury by the courage and pa triotism of Mr. Cleveland, who issued $263,000,000 of interest bearing bonds, in order to raise the money which came to save the present administration from embarrassment in a grave crisis. Mr. Cleveland's friends are unfortunate in referring to this matter. Now, Mr. Cleveland either foresaw the emergen cy which came, three years before any body else saw it, or he did not. Tf he foresaw it and unselfishly made provis ion for his suceessor. then he wilfully deceived his countrymen and made them pay heavy interest unnecessarily on an enormous bond issue, for it was his avowed purpose at the time to pre serve the treasury gold reserve. If he did not foresee the Cuban crisis, ther, according to the logic of his admirers, he was wholly unjustifiable >n saddling a heavy interest bearing bonded debt upon the country. Mr. McKinley bus the same power to issue bonds that Mr. Cleveland had. Then why not have saved the interest on the bonds for the intervening time? necessity for the bond issues at that time is amply proven by the fact that there remained in the treasury for one year after McKinley's enough of the bond money t) meet the emergency of a threatened bombard ment of coast cities by forei; Mr. Cleveland's friends stick to That there was no their loyalty playss ! judgment at times. inauguration n war ve him with admirable pertinacity, but ad havoc with their "Clothes Hampers," big stock, and all sizes and kinds.
