Mississippi Penitentiary Board Refuses to Pay the Bills. Jackson, Miss., January 17.—(Special.)— Detective A. J. Hoyt, the “old Sleuth*’ who turned up some three hundred citi zens of the county of Frankling as bold, bad white cappers about six months ago, and who has since that time been in the employ of the penitentiary board of con trol for the purpose of running down and returning to the Rankin farm a convict of high social connection who escaped therefrom nearly one year ago. was in Jackson today and presented the board with a bill for balance due on services rendered—or alleged to have been render ed, is the way the board looked at It. Mr. Hoyt is supposed to have chased a crip pled man. a dope fiend and a drunkard, all over the state of Texas. He wrote the secretary of the board on one occasion that he was In the same town with the fellow and that the escape was drunk, but he missed him by just a few minutes. The board paid Mr. Hoyt's drafts till it grew weary and then quit. It was of the opin ion that he should have captured the crip ple for a great deal less money, and after paying him some five or six hundred dol lars cut him off. When his bill for three hundred more came up today it was promptly turned down by the unanimous vote of the board. Mr. Hoyt was not pres ent, but wrhen he learned of the action of the board he expressed himself in no coni plimentry terms. Steamer Makes Fi.*st Trip.

SCALY ECZEMA ALLJVER BODY Eruptions Appeared on Chest, and Face and Neck Were All Broken Out—Scales and Crusts Formed — Iowa Lady Has Great Faith in Cuticura Remedies for Skin Diseases. ■ ANOTHER WONDERFUL CURE BY CUTICURA “I had an eruption appear on my chest and body and extend upwards and downwards, so that my neck and face were all broken out; also my arms and the lower limbs as far as the knees. I at first thought it was prickly heat. But soon scales or crusts formed where the breaking out was. Instead of going to a physician, I purchased a complete treatment of the Cuticura Remedies, in which I had great faith, and all was satisfactory. A year or two later the eruption appeared again, only a little lower; but before it had time to spread I procured another supply of the Cuti cura Remedies, and continued their use until the cure was complete. It is now five years since the last attack, and have not seen any signs of a return. I have taken about three bottles of the Cuticura Resolvent, and do not know how much of the Soap or Ointment, as I always keep them with me; probably one half dozen of each. “ 1 decided to give the Cuticura Rem edies a trial after I had seen the results of their treatment of eczema on an infant belonging to one of our neigh bors. The parent took the child to the nearest physician, but his treatment did no good. So they procured the Cuticura Remedies and cured her with them. When they began using Cuticura Rem edies her face was terribly disfigured with sores, but she was entirely cured, for I saw the same child at the age of five years, and her mother told me the eczema had never broken out sinoe. I have more faith in Cuticura Remedies for skin diseases than anything I know of. I am, respectfully yours, Emma E.

Montgomery, January 17.—(Special. )— President Harvie Jordan and Secretary Richard Cheatham of the Southern Cot ton association were here today, with sev eral other leading men of the ootton belt to have a look at the Lowrey cotton picker, recently perfected in many of its parts. A test was made on a cotton field on the place of Moses McLemore, and it was found that with six boys to run it it would gather 3000 pounds a day. The party was given a dining at Yung's res taurant after returning to the city. Mt. Jordan and Mr. Oh eat ham expressed them selves as sanguine that the machine will be a success in the harvesting of the great crop of the south. There were in the party which went out to the McLemore farm the following gen tlemen: Mr. Jordan and Mr. Cheatham. W. L. Foster, member of the railroad commission of Louisiana; Gen. John W. A. Sanford, F. P. Glass, J. I. McKinney, Montgomery; R. R. Poole, commissioner of agriculture and his chief clerk. Jesse C. Adams; B. D.v Armstrong of Coffee county; W. H. Seymour, president of the Alabama Cotton Growers' association; W. A. Gayle, A. M. Baldwin, M. C. Scott. Montgomery, H. P. Heftin of Birmingham and several others. Mr. Jordan believes that the cotton growers of the south are going to meet every request of the New Orleans meet ing and he is looking ahead to continued prosperity. Big Earnings. Though there have bee>n several stories about the earnings of the state cotton mill at Speigner’s, it is a fact that no figures that were reliable have been given out until today. President Shirley Bragg of the state board of convict inspectors said as much this morning. The net re ceipts from the mill for last year were, as a matter of fact, $16,655.13, which is remarkable when it is remembered that it has not before been possible to run the mill save at a loss. The plan under which the mill is oper ated is a partnership between the mill and the convict board. The mill, run by Manager Clark and the state, rents con victs from the state at so much per head. The bills are all paid by the mill concern as If It was an entirely separate affair. It has been demonstrated that in this way money can be made for the state and at the same time good w’ages received for convicts which are not able to work in the mines. Prominent Men. A son of a prominent Alabama family has been here for a few days in the per son of W. C. Meek of Columbus, Miss., and a nephew of A. B. Meek, the poet and author who lived many years in his life in Mobile and Tuscaloosa. He is also a nephew of the late E>r. B. F. Meek of the state university faculty before his death. T. E. Atkinson. Jr., a prominent law yer of Macon, Ga., has also been here for a day or two. The Traders and Farmers’ bank has been organized at Haleyvillc with capital of $25,000. The incorporators are C. L. and W. W. Haley, J. G. Johnson, Mid Tur- | ner, J. C. Taylor, W. H. Cleare, John Lovelady. Reward for Pennington. The governor has added to the efforts of the people of Houston county to cap ture Thad Pennington, under charge of the murder of a man named Faulk. He has offered from the funds of the state the sum of $150, which will be added to a like amount by the relatives of the mur dered man. A man will be sent at once to Cuba where it is thought Pennington has taken refuge. The following new corporations have been reported to the secretary of state for approval: Southern Security and Trust company, ■ Birmingham; capital, $6000; W. A. Davis and others incorporators. Mineral Belt Gazette Printing and Pub lishing company, Birmingham; capital, $5000; incorporators. Jack Ansley and others. Creek Lumber company. Mobile; capi tal, $15,000; C. A.

These appointments have been made by the governor: Notaries public, W. W. Beall. Luverne; T. E. Grier, Luverne; R. L. Varner, Hayneville; J. H. Vaught, Stevenson: Miss Catherine Shea, Birming ham; E. J. Tucker, Opelika. Regimental Officers. The terms of the two majors, J. E. Car ter and C. F. Adreson of the Second in fantry. Alabama National Guard, having expired, and Lieut. Col. C. R. Bricken having been promoted to the colonelcy elections have been ordered to fill the vacancies. The order is numbered 5, and was mailed from the office of Adjutant General Brandon today. It Is understood that a slate has been made up to give the highest place, lieu tenant colonel, to Major Carter, who lives In Selma, and the two majors to Capt. G. O. Dickey, Company I, Luverne, and Capt. v\r. A. Collier, Company F, Tusca loosa. All these are men of long service and very popular with the members of the guard. Several improvements have been made in the Second since Col. C. R. Bricken took charge some weeks ago and he ex pects to take the command up to the en campment next summer with a full com plement of companies, each well filled, and better drilled than ever. He has been busy at this work ever since he took charge. Confidence in New Railroad. Meridian, Miss., January 17.—(Special.)— At a special meeting of the directors of the board of trade and cotton exchange, a letter was read from an eastern cap italist, who requested that for the present his name be withheld, suggested a plan for the construction of the proposed Phil adelphia and Meridian railroad. The gen tleman asked for a conference and the same was promptly granted and arranged for. This gentleman stated that he had recently been over the proposed route of the road and believed thoroughly In its practicability, and thought It could be quickly constructed. He gave an in timation of the plan he had formulated, in which he wishes the assistance of the people of this city, and will probably ap pear In person before the board during the coming week.

DIEST OF FIRE III GRATE Little Mary Elizabeth Hooper Adams Passes Away CAUSES SORROW IN SELMA Tom Russell, Aged Negro Janitor at Postoffice In Selma, Dies Sud denly While Sitting In a Chair. Selma, January 17.—(Special.)—With un speakable sorrow the friends of Mr. and Mrs. J. Hooper Adams learned of the death at 6 o'clock of their daughter. Mary Elizabeth, aged about 2Vfc years. Added to the sadness of the little one's death is the lamentable accident which was the cause. Yesterday afternoon while Mrs. Adams was at the home of a relative the child's clothing caught fire from an open grate, burns being sustained that proved fatal after a night of untold suffering. The little one was playing In the room of her aunt. Mrs. George H. Craig. Jr., when the telephone called the latter out In the hall. Before she could return, the child had picked up a hearth broom and was attempting to sweep the ashes up when her clothing caught fire from the grate. Mrs. Craig entered the room to find the little one in flames which she hastily extinguished but not until burns had | been receded too severe to give even hope of recovery, despite the skill of physicians quickly summoned. Mr. Adams was down at Snowhill on a hunting trip and as soon as possible an engine was dispatched from this city for him and he was brought home, reach ing here during the night. Died In a Chair. This morning sitting upright in a chair at the postoffice, Tom Russell, the old negro janitor, suddenly died. He had been complaining all the morning and sat down in the chair. In a few seconds he gave a few gasps and was dead. He was a faithful negro and his death is learned with sorrow by many. For Better Roads and Paved Streets. A stop forward was taken last night by Selma at the meeting of the Com mercial and Industrial association when a determination was enthusiastically made to have Broad and Water streets paved and permanent macadam roads in the county by the end of the present year. The present system of road-building is, in the opinion of the association, Im practical and gives good roads only in fair weather. The association believes that bonds to the amount of $600,000 should bo issued for the purpose of build ing roads and a committee was appointed to take the matter up with the county authorities. As to paving Broad and Wa ter streets, a special election will have to be held, and the legislature petitioned to pass a baby bond act for the city. Elected Officers. At a meeting of the Dallas County Medical society new officers were elected for the ensuing year as follows: Dr. W. W. Harper, president; Dr. B. B. Roger, secretary; Dr. Clement Ritter, treasurer; Drs. S. G. Gay, C. Ritter, W. McLean Pitts, W. W. Harper and .1. M. Donald, board of censors. Dr. Gay is chairman of the board. After the election of officers the board of censors held a meeting and Dr. S. G. Gay, who lias served for a number of years as county health officer, nominated Dr. B. B. Rogan for the position of coun ty health officer and he was unanimously chosen. Dr. Gav served the county during the late yellow fever epidemic in Mississippi and Ixmisiana with signal ability. He has performed the duties of the office for many years with a faithfulness that de serves commendation. Teachers Licensed.

Many a man sees his wife bend and Lug at burdens that strain the back and the heart alike, without any idea of the outrage. Ohildren follow In too quick succession to allow the mother time to recuperate. The womanly organs become displaced, there are debilitating,disagree able drains, with the added pain of in flamed or ulcerated parts. In this condi tion the woman bravely tries to oarry her household load, afraid to take the rest she needs lest a meal will be late. No wonder she Is pale, weak, wretched, surly of temper and snappish of tongue. She would be false to nature if she were any thing else. No persons need help so much as the class of whom this woman Is tho type. And for such women no help is so sure, so wonderful, as that given by Dr. Pierce’s Favorite Prescription. It re stores all the womanly organs to perfect health. It establishes regularity in their functions. It restores the strained and shattered nervous system. It clears up the complexion, rounds out the form and makes life a dally happiness. "Favorite Prescription” contains no alcohol or whisky. It is the best medicine for women. Nothing can be "Just ss good” as the best. Tell tho dealer so if he offers a substitute. "I wrote to you in 1902, about my case,” writes Mn. Klla W. Robhlnson, of Nuttree. Va.
