—... ■' ... .-!LJ!__lisk* hkookhatgii. Miw.. THURSDAY. JULY| THE 7th._ ^Xi o o «.l_ <*r fj””~ — ' i 1 ■——rsr ^ ABOUND TOWN. The days are growing shorter. Have you seeu the cornet yet? A few Wessonites paid our town a visit Sunday. Miss Ella Bethea is on a visit to the country. Joe Perk turned to St. Louis Mon day night. L. Miller, of New Orleans, was in town this week. No roasting cans have made their ap|>ear ance yet Two comets—or one comet, seen twice; which is it? The colored |>opulation had a festival on last Saturday night. No market Sunday morning. Many dis appointed boef-caters. We hear of no more weddings soon. Wli >’ll be the next? Miss Josie Johnson left for Chicago Monday night on a visit. Assessor K. W. McNair is busy making out the assessment rolls. Don’t forget the mass meeting at the Courthouse next Saturday. More New Orleans pai>ers w'ere sold here Sunday than for several years. Vegetables are scarce in town. The dry weather played havoc with the gardens. There is to he a picnic and dance at Ike Hoskins’mill to-morrow. Are you going? Kememlk r the precinct meetings Satur day. Pick out vour best men for delegates. Peter Lucich has moved into his new stand,and everything looks as neat as a pin. Candidates for county offices are not com ing to the front very fast in Lincoln county. A good many watermelons coming in hut they are high—from fifty to sixty cents. Brookhaven was treated to some line mu sic Monday morning by the Wesson Brass Band. The comet is said to be thirty millions of miles from the earth. Don’t vou feel !>ct ter now? Attend your precinct meetings Saturday, and don’t be afraid to speak out in the meetings. Miss Cola Barr, of Jackson, has been s|iending sometime with Misses Mollie and Joe Daughtry. Chancery Court is now in session. It is not creating much excitement, as there is but little business. Now is the time to put the different roads leading into town in good order. To retain trade this must be done. In different parts of the State they are enjoying the luxury of ripe peaches. There are none to be had with us. Mr. Sam Mayers, of Handsboro, son of the immortal 1’. K., was in town last week and honored our office with a call. Clerks Martin and Warren are serene and happy. No canvass for them this year. They are to be congratulated. A young friend wishes a remedy for love sickness. Can’t some of our Cherokee street young men give the information? J. M. Buckley and his little daughter came down from Jackson Sunday morning and remained until Monday night. A few Sheriff’s sales took placelast Mon >)>.,' One farm wmaiujog one hundred and sixty acres sold for five dollars. Times arc hard, money scarce, bacon high, weather warm, flies abundant, fleas saucy, but still we are a happy people. A nice rain fell on Friday evening, which was hailed with delight. It was hardly enough to be considered a “season.” Dan Buie, near Caseyville, has lost some valauble sheep, for which he offers a liberal reward. Bead notice in another column. As the comet will not api>ear again in a century or so, our citizens should see it now. They may not hold out until its re-appear ance. Would it not be a good idea to have a large cistern on the college grounds? It might insure the safety of the college build ings. Miss Mollie McMorris, of Port Gibson, is on a visit to Miss Hattie Martin. Her many friends are glad to see her with them again. We are sorry to learn that Mrs. Magee, editress of the Democrat, has been quite ill. We trust her sickness may be of short du A good many men in this county intend to “run on their merits.” It would be h had idea for a man to run if he didn’t have a “few merits." It is reported that the world will come to an end about the middle of August. If it docs, what will become of all poor paying snliscribers. The mass meeting will he held at the new Court House next Saturday. Every Demo crat in the beat, who can leave his business should attend. Every voting precinct in this county should hold a meeting next Saturday and send delegates to the County Convention, to be held here on the 16th inst. Not much amusement among the young folks now. Too much warm weather. They might try sitting up to see the comet, provi ded they can corn-et over the old man. Mr. Tom Martin has returned from Cof fecville, and resumed control of the Brook haven Democrat. We trust that he may meet with the success his merits deserve. A young man passed by the College a few days ago, and said the lines, “I feel like one who treads alone, some banquet hall desert ed,” were very forcibly impressed upon his mind. A number of young men went out to Dogwood Church last Sunday. There must have been some unusual attraction, for the day was uninviting and the distance about fifteen miles. Miss Annie Parker, of Yazoo City, re turned to her home last Friday. She had been visiting Miss Fannie Decell, and we learn she created quite a flutter among the masculine hearts Mike Suttel, who has been doing business for Ike Cope for a long while, left last week for Vicksburg, where he spent a few days. From there he went to Carthage on a visit to his sister. One evening last week we had a shower of hail, which cooled the atmosphere con siderably. The stones that fell were not ex actly as large as partridge eggs, the size usually repo: ted. Pat Quertermous’ baker, Mr. Wliat’s-his name, quietly left one night last week for parts unknown. He left just as a rush of business was on hand, much to the disad vantage of Mr. Quertermous. We learn that Mr. K. P. Clarke is a can didate for Representative. He seems to be in favor of “No Convention," but does not say he will refuse to submit to the action of one, should the people decide to make nom inations. He made a good Assessor, has made a good Supervisor, and we aee no rea son why he would not make a good Repre sentative. WHITWORTH OOLLBGK. ▲ Bynopaia of the Commencement Exercise*. gxwiikv fit ii hitworth Colligt were unusually intereating ami were well attended. The Chapel waa beautifully decorated with featoona of evergreen and flowers, while in the centre, wrought in arbor vita1, was the motto: “Do Right!" Monday, 10 a. mm was devoted to reading of Essays, by mem bers of the Senior Class, inters|H‘rsed with the most delightful and well executed music ever listeued to. Miss Emma Grain lingread “Commencement Essays,” which was well com|H)sed and gr*x*ted with every manifestation of delight. The essays upon “To-day,” by Miss Cora Matthews, and “Samples,” bv Miss IX)ra Matthews, were both highly pleasing, Miss Lula Wright’s essay on “Words,” was well received. “Perseverance Essential to Success,” was a very pleasing production by Miss Annie McLaurin. “Only a Woman,” by Miss Lizzie Ho kins was so much admired that it was highly applauded, notwithstanding applause was prohibited. Miss Hallie Hickman then read “To lk*, We Must IX),” a finely composed essay which was highly appreciated. “Busybodies,” by Miss Julia Scberch, was happily conceived and well rendered. Next followed “Be a Waman,” an exquisite essay by Miss Ella Seaman On account of the sickness of Miss Willie Streater, we were deprived of hearing her essay. Miss Bessie Bundle next favored the audience with an essay upon “Influence of Indiscriminate Beading,” which con tained many valuable suggestions. “Dido,” a felicitous contribution by Bessie Coker was a pleasant conclusion to the exercises. Monday, 8 r. m., we were favored with exercise’s by the Alumna* Association, consisting of recita tion by Misses Lollie Bussell and Bettie Cain, which were well delivered and well recieved, and an essay written by Mrs. Peyton. Between each, the audience was favored with music. Hon. E. John Ellis, of New Orleans, was then introduced, who delivered the annual address, and for more than an hour he held the audience spell bound by his matchless eloquence and logical argument. He handled his subject with ease and grace, and captured his hearers. TCESDAY, 10 A. M., was Commencement Day, and the pro gramme throughout was decidedly one of interest. A grand march was played and then a very able prayer offered by Bishop Keener. Te Deuui Laud am ns was sung, after which came the Salutatory of Miss Victoria Pickens, which was well written and appropriate. “The Comet,” an essay by Miss Mary Cheatham, was quite inter esting and creditable in the highest degree. The Valedictory, by Miss Bessie Coker, was a little out of the usual way, and was there fore greatly appreciated for its originality and fine composition. Piesident Johnson, in very feeling and appropriate remarks, then conferred the degree of Mistress of En glish Literature upon thirteen graduates, and of Mistress of Arts upon two others.; The address of Rev. B. M. Palmer, of New Orleans, was certainly one of the finest ever listened to by a Brookhaven audience. The subject w as well chosen and his style of delivery faultless, and for nearly on hour and a half the vast audience was transfixed by his almost superhuman effort. Dr. Johnson was fortunate in having him to de liver the address, and the people were de lighted in listening to the man, of whose great fame they had heard so much. After the address, the doxology was sung, a bene diction invoked, and thus ended the present term of Whitworth College. TUESDAY NWHT. a grand musical entfrtvw »»***. uuder the auspices of the Alumaaie Associ ation. The musical department of the col lege has very able teachers, and the pro gress of the pupils is an evidence of the fact that they have been thoroughly taught. Six pianos, three violins and a flute accom panied thirty-six voices in “Bird on the Wing.” The music was well chosen, and we would like to mention each piece sepa rately, but will have to content ourself with saying they were all magnificent. “Dark ness,” by Miss Katie Johnson, “Wounded,” by Miss Minnie Collier; and “Minerva’s Disappointment,” by Miss Allie Berglund, were recited in a truly happy manner, and they received very flattering praise from the audience. The Alumna* may well feel proud of their entertainment. We wish it was in our power to mention all participants in the manner that they deserve. The exercises were creditable throughout, and it would lie unjust to dis criminate and extol the merits of any particular one where all did well. Tuesday night most of the young ladies | left for home on the 11 o’clock train, carry ing with them the best wishes of our citizens. Death of Penn McRee. Wo vprv imirli to h-riril of the death of Mr. S. P. McKee, of Casey ville, which took place at Ilia home on Monday evening last at four o’clock. lie was bur ied Tuesday at Bethel church. The cause of his death was flux. He was in town last week, attending the college exercises, and we thought he was as tine a specimen of manhood as we ever saw, little dreaming [ that we would be railed upon to chronicle his death in this issue of our paper. Mr. McKee was a high tolled, honorable gentle man, a good citizen and a genial compan ion, and his presence and influence will be greatly missed. To his bereaved family we extend the heart-felt sympathies of the peo ple. -—. Panther at Large. It is reported that a panther has been seen on the Halbert Branch, about one mile from town. A negro woman declares she was at tacked by it, and exibited some pretty se vere lacerations on her person in support of tier assertion. We learn that his panther ship also attacked Mr. Lem Lewis, but did not succeed in capturing his scalp. It is reported that other persons have seen it. If it is a panther, where did it come from? The probabilities are that it is only a cata mount, which has been magnified into a panther. Knighta of Honor. The following were installed as officers of the Lodge of Knights of Honor, on last Monday night: P. P. Quertermous, Dictator, W. H. Penn, Vice Dictator; J. L. Mikell, Assist taut Dictator; Rev. W. B. Lewis, Chaplain; J. B. Daughtry, Reporter; A. E. Moreton, Financial Reporter; E. M. Bee, Treusnrer; W. K. Wood, Guide; L. C. Matthews, Guar dian; P. Fitzner, Sentinel; Dr. E. J. Bowen, Medical Examiner. Shooting Scrape. Last week a negro named Felder, living in the south-eastern portion of the county, shot another, and it was thought he wonld die. He was tried before Justice Price, and sentenced to jail. He waa brought in by a Constable, and is now in the County Boarding House. We did not learn the origin of the difficulty. Card of Thanks. Bey. H. F. Johnson desires us to return his sincere thanks to the citizens of Brook haven for their efforts in behalf of the col lege, on the night of the late fire. He be lieves that to the hard work and determi nation of the people was due the perzerva tion of the buildings, and he feela that he owes them a debt of gratitude. High Honor*. Miss Anna Bailey, an accomplished lit tle lady of Winona, returned home from Brookhaven last Tuesday night, where she has been attending school for the past two years. She brings home with her from the college high honors having taken three out of live medals. As she will graduate next year, we wish her unbounded success, and will here express a hope that she may cap ture every medal otiered during the next session.—Winona Advance. You may well feel proud of Miss Annie, Brother Jones, when you are informed that there were something over two hundred competitors. Besides being intellectual and accomplished she was quite popular with both teachers and scholars. Why u It Thus? As we were wending our way homeward pretty late one night last week, we over heard a young man quoting |>oetry. We took it that he had been to see his “jimp sun-weed,” and had been jilted, or some thing of that sort. We could only catch the following verse: Alas! why was the mandate made, That man must live alone to sigh? That brightest dreams are doomed to fade And sweetest ho|>es are doomed to die? At the request of several Democratic citi zens, that there may be no misunderstand ing, we annoance in advance that the meet ing for this I Holt to select delegates to the Convention to be held to send delegates to Slate Convention will take place at the court house at 12 o'clock M. Saturday next. We ask that there lie a full and prompt at tendance. - »» -— A Bar Meeting was held at the Court house on Tuesday uight. A large crowd of iadii-s and gentlemen were present to listen to the address of Judge Van Eaton, upon “The Life and Character of Judge 11. Cas sedy,” deceased, which w?.s an able etlbrt. Col. Stockdalc was called upon, and though wholy unprepared, he delivered an elo quent address of some length. Lea Female College, of Summit, has an advertisement in another column to which we direct attentton. Mr. Otken, the princi pal, is a gentleman and scholar of high stauding, and the school has the reputation of being one of the best in South Missis sippi. The glorious 4th of July was not celebra ted to any great extent. A few guns were tired, a few hurrahs given,one or two drunks, and thus passed away the day that in times past was celebrated throughout the length and breadth of the Union with the greatest pomp and splendor. There was a barbecue at Chamberlain’s mill last Saturday. We understand a good many were on hand, and all had a splendid time. We will give an extended notice next week. We did not receive an account until too late for this issue. Kev. W. B. Lewis and family will occu py, for the present, the residence of May or Cuming, on Cherokee street. We are informed that steps have been taken to build another parsonage. We had the pleasure of a ease yesterday from M. Suttel, of Brookhaven.—Vicks burg Herald. What kind of a case—Champagne'/ Sutton’s Picnic. Coi.d Spring Switch, July 4th. Editor Ledger:— On last Saturday, the 2nd inst., a gala day was spent at Sutton’s Picnic. The crowd gathered early, notwithstanding rain seemed inevitable. About ten o’clock the diurnal orb peeped through the clouds and lightened the hearts of all present. A nice platform had been erecled beneath some wide-spreading oaks, which gave shade the entire day. The sound of the violin was soon heard, and in a few moments the “light fantastic” was indulged iti by the young folks. They glided through the ma te* of the dance with ease and grace—espe cially the young ladies—who, by the way, were very pretty and full of animation. About one o’clock dinner was announced, and I must say I never saw a liettcr one spread on a similar occasion. The tables fairly groaned with substantial*, and tho delicacies were in abundance—something to satisfy the appetite of the most exacting Epicure. A great deal of praise is due Mrs. Sutton, Bostwick, Kelly and Gill lor the manner in which they arranged and managed the tables. Ice cold lemonade was served to quench the thirst of all pres ent. After dinner dancing was resumed for two hours, and the remainder of the even ing was spent in some innocent plays, Your humble servant participated in the latter and enjoyed it hugely, considering his be ing so young and timid. There was not a candidate for office on the ground. Don’t vou think that a miraculous catastrophe? In all, the picnic was a success, and a simi lar repetition is always accceptable to the undersigned. J. E. P. Re-Instated. Brookhaven, July 5th. Editor Ledger:— Please permit me to say that I have been appointed to the pastorate ot the A. M. E. Church atOkolona, Miss., bv the presiding Bishop of this District, Bev. H. M. Turner.

A Fool Once More. “For ten years uiy wife was confined to her bed with such a’ complication of ail ments that no doctor could tell what was the matter or cure her, and I used up a small fortune inhumbug stuff’. Six months ago I saw a U. S. Flag with Hop Hitters on it, and I thought I would lie a fool once more. I tried it, but my folly proved to lie wisdom.

A Card■ Editor Lkix;eb:— J see in the issue of your paper of the 23rd of June a comm illusion, brief and to the point, from the Hon. Ryrd, from which two facts are made manifest: 1st. that he is a candidate for Floater, which, I suppose, means Representative from the counties of Amite and Lincoln; 2nd, that while in the Legislature from Franklin county he did not vote for mixed schools. The first appears atlirmalivcly and the sec ond negatively, and from die emphatic epi thets used in negativing the report that reached him, the conclusion is drawn that lie is opposed to mixed schools. As he is announced as a eandidm £pr Representa tive, and if elected will km-&. something to do m shaping a fivoq" ■ h«n>l system for the State, it is important? for the voter to know exactly his views on tlie question. Does he mean to say that he is opposed, un der any and all circums:ancts, to mixed schools? If he is, we would suggest to him to consider the expense that would attend the support of such a system. It would ne cessitate the establishment of four schools where only two now exist—a separate one for males anil females for the whites and the same for the colored, l'he present sys tem works very well, and for one 1 protest against any such expensive system. Re sides, the society of male and female in youth is beneficial to both, and is approved bv the most advanced educators. Vote® of Beat l wo. RUNAWAY SHEEP.

I have watched the use ol' the medicine now known us "Swift Syphilitic. Specefie” since the year 1827—over 50 years—and have never heard of a failure to cure when properly taken. I commenced the use of it on mv slaves, between I8u0 and 1855, and as also did a number of my neighbors, and in even- case that came within my knowl edge it effected a cure. In 18:15 my broth „rn Walker, bouaht at auc tion a slave not warranted. After the pur chase it was discovered that he had had Syphilis for twelve years. His head was without a hair on it.' He treated him with this remedy, and in four weeks he was sound and well, and in a short time had as tine a head of hair as was ever owned by a negro. He owned tins slave many \ears, and he never had any return of the disease nor lost a day’s work. This is only one among hundreds of instances of remarka ble cures made by this medicine. In all my past life I have never known a remedy that would so fully accomplish what it is recommended to do. II. L. Dennard. The Swift Specific Company, Proprie tors, Atlanta, Ga. Sold bv Dr. T. T.
