A BIT OF HISTORY.
Editor McComb Enterprise: Reading China Grove news to ( the Magnolia Gazette the writer . says Gen. S. D. Lee lays the , blame to Gen. N. B. Forrest, for the massacre at the battle of Harrisburg, Miss.,and as to what he says about it I must say Amen, Amen. I was there and I am here now and will tell of a little that I know—a Mr. D. J. Gordon, and myself were on the out line picket post the night before the battle and about 10 o’olock that ni;;1-' Gen. Foraet, rode up, we dis mounted him and after wo recog nized him he :ol<i us that he was going to vi the Ennaiy’s situa tion in camp and see what they were doing, and asked one of us to accompany him as he did not like to go alone because he muht be captured and that one of us may escape to tell the tale. And either of us was more than glad to accept his invitation as we had every confidence in him leading us through all right, and it fell to my lot to go with him and Mr. Gordon’s to remain at the post until we returned. So we viewed the camp all pver and saw the entire situation and when we re turned to the picket post we fount} Gordon and Gen. For eat'a horse all 0. K. It was a Cloudy moonlight night. Some times the. moon would shine a little but not bright, and I have .so often seen nights that brings my mind back to the night before the Harrisburg battle. We were both quite tired and Gen. Forest, sat down in the shadow of a stub by oak tree, and told us the pro gram for the next day it was then after 12 o’clock. He said we would have a fight and he feared that it would be a bloody one that he and Gen. Lee did not agree. But Lee, was his senior and he, Forest had to give under. That Lee was going to fight by detail a brigade at the time and that our brigade would open the fight—and that he. Forest, was in favor of a bulldog fight be up and in to them times with a storm and capture thd entire layout without a check until it was fin ished. He told my companion and myself to remain at our post until he could go to camp and send 100 mounted men to re lease us. And then we could go to our respective commands and would be excused-from duty the next day and stay out of the fight next day if we chose to do so. And sure enough it was fought by detail and our brigade opened the battle. My friend and companion B. J. Jordon bot 0 went in the battle and Jord ^ wr.s killed and I am here todLn to stand up tor Gen. N.B.Fore.^j, —I. A. Quin. Stipt.

SUGAR PRODUCTION AND pONSUMPTION. “The World’s Sugar Produc tion and Consumption, 1800* 1900’’ is the title of a mono graph just issued by the Treas ury Bureau of Statistics. It discusses the sugar production and consumption of the world during the past century and es pecially during the last half cen tury in which the burden of su gar production has been trans ferred from cane to the sugar beet, and in which the world has so largely increased its consump tion of sugar. The world’s su gar production has grown from 1,150,000 tons in 1840 to 8,800, 000 tons in 1900. During the same period the world’s popula tion has grown, according to the best estimates, from 950,000,000 tojabout 1,500,000,000. 'Thus, sugar production has increased about 650 per cent while popula tion was increasing .but about >0 per cent. Coming nearer lome and considering the United States alone, it is found that the jonsumption of sugar which in .850 was only 22 pounds per cap ta, was in 1901 over 68 pounds jer capita. One especially striking fact ihown by the statistics presented n this study is the rapidly in sreasing proportion of the world’s enlarged sugar consump ,ion which is supplied by beets. According to the figures pre sented by this study, beets which supplied in 1840 less than 5 per sent of the world’s sugar, in 1900 supplied 67 per cent of the greatly increased consumption; while cane, which then supplies 15 per cent of the world’s sugar consumption, now supplies but 33 per cent. Stated in quanti ties, it may be said that the world*8 cane sugar supply has grown from 1,100,000 tons in 1840 to 2,850,000 tons in 1900 an increase of 160 per cent; while that of beets has grown from 50,000 tons in 184 to 5,950,000 tons in 1900, an increase of 11, 800 per cent.—Selected, YOU KNOW WHAT YOU ARE TAKING When you take Grove’s Taste less Chill Tonic because the formula ia plainly printed on ev ery bottle showing thst it is Sim* ply Iron and Quinine in a taste less form.

Homicides follow each other in quick succession and yet no progress is made to arrest the reprehensible practice. The laws are inadequate to correct the evil,' as we would want to see it, still if the officers of the law will conform to the oaths they have taken and per form their duty as becomes those who do not want to prove reore ant to their trust, the number of homicides can be diminished. The knife and the ever ready pistol must be got rid of. We live in an age of civilization when we do not think it should be necessary to make a walking arsenal of one’s self, unless one be so weak as to fear for life if he is not loaded with a deadly weapon.
