ALL THAT SOUTHERN GENTLE MEN GET NOW IS LITTLE BEER AND "TIGER WHISKY," ACCORD ING TO MISSISSIPPIAN. Chicago, III., June fi. -The time hon ored tradition that, the Mint Julep still holds its fragrant reign over the "Kentucky Colonels" and the "South ern gent.'man" was rudely shattered by a party of fifty-five Mississippians who recently Htopped in Chicago on a tour through the North Riven by the M ississippi Bankers' Association. Ac cording to them Ihe famous drink which for so many years has tempted the palates of th- people, in '"Dixie Land" is fast dying out. and bids fair to disappear. "No suit," said J. L. Trusty, of Water Valley, Miss., "we all are sure forgettin' how to mix that grand old drink. Our State is rnighty nigh dry now and all we get down yondah is a little beer and "tiger whis key." The prohibition mov-ment makes ouah private sideboards a necessity. There are very few towns, may hp ten in all, that have saloons." lie sipped lovingly at the brownish mixture and pushed the bright red cherry below the surface where it glistened through the leaves of the mint, like a cigar in the dark. 'You all aren't, quite so fast as we are down yondah," continued Mr. Trusty. "We pet up at five o'clock. Coii'so we all don't have much to do in the 'evenin' ' or what, you call 'afteriuon' up here. Oh yes. we still wear the old John H. Stetson right smart down in our state and we are nearly all for Hryan too. It sure hurts to see the old mint julep go, and the men nowa days don't even know how to mix it It. sure is most discomfiting." And Mr. Trusty gave a gentle sigh of resignation at the deterioration of the present generation who know not how to combine the corn juice with the mint to make that venerable drink once so famous in the South.

Dean's Auditorium Stock company will make its first appearance before n Richmond audience at the Gennett next Monday night. This company, although playing at popular prices, is not by any means a cheap company. The various members are all well known in their various lines in the theatrical profession and have had years of experience in their various departments. Mr. Dean was fortunate In being on the slot when the Lafay ette Lyceum companies disbanded for the summer in Detroit, and find ing that several of the members of both companies were not averse to summer work, he engaged the major ity of the present company on the ppot. The fact that they have been so long associated together adds much to the smoothness of their representa: tions. The company is practicaly one large family, and a pleasanter family could not well be found. Miss Maces the leading lady, is a most charming actress of extended experience. Her last engagement was as leading wo man at the Lafayette in Detroit. Miss Ella May Fitch the second in rang among the ladies is also from the La fayette stock, and adds to a charming personality and fine stage presence, an excellent wardrobe and a charming singing voice. Mr. Harry 15. Sherman, the leading man, although still young, has had an extended experience both in "stock" and "repertoire". Mr. J. A. Sullivan, is another member of the Lafayette players, with whom he was "producer and stags1 director," a posi tion which he holds in the Dean Stock company.

WOMEN MAY YET GEI TO VOTE Movement for Suffrage England Assumes Great er Proportions. in GREAT MEETINGS PLANNED SAID THAT THOSE TO BE HELD THIS MONTH WILL DO MUCH TO AID THE CAUSE ENGLISH WOMAN'S VIEWS. (By Lady Henry Somerset) London, L'ng., June 6. When the National Union of Women's Suffrage societies marches along the South Side of Hyde Park to Albert Hall, there to hold a great mass meeting, demonstrating to the entire world that the movement for suffrage is be coming irresistible, one of t ie most momentous events in the history of the organization will be in progress. This mass-meeting, together with the meeting to be held in Hyde Park, on June 21. is expected by many to" be the fore-runner of success. We want now, and have long been striving for suffrage by constitutional right, but we have not gained a vote. But the coming demonstrations will cause the movement for suffrage be ing carried on by England's women to be viewed in a new light. There will be representatives here from many different countries and the govern ment may be impressed that, where women from all ports of the world band together for a purpose, there is a determination that justifies serious consideration. There is little doubt that the great meetings to be held this month will be the cause of suffrage movement re ceiving renewed impetus in all civi lized countries.

Prof. Thompson has been connected with the high school fac ulty longer than any of the other male members and he is pointed to as the logical successor. Prof. Heironirnus is principal of the Garfield school. Prof. Thompson has been called up on a number of times to act in the capacity of principal during the ab sence of Prof. Kllabarger.

Railroad President Hits on Novel Method to Escape From Cares. MUD TURTLE FARM "IT.' Chicago, 111., June 6. A mud turtle farm, which will also be devoted to the raising of mushrooms, gold fish and guinea pigs, is the latest venture of the head of one of the big Western railroads. President H. I. Miller, of the Chicago and Eastern Illinois, is the men who has hit upon this novel form of diversified farming as a relief from business cares, and he intends incidentally to show the farmers of the grain belt that 200 acres of terra pins and guinea pigs will pay bigger dividends than even eighty cent corn. The farm is located at Barrington, a suburb of Chicago, and is a tract of rolling timbered land. Numerous la goons and roads are being dug at var ious points on the property and an elaborate system of irrigating ditches will be established. The guinea pig yards will cover several acres and will be the largest, it is expected, in the country. The mushrooms will be allowed to grow wild wherever they will in marshy spots and damp nooks in the woods. With the starting of the farm comes to light some interest ing facts about a little known indus try. It is estimated that over 10,000 turtles are consumed annually in Chi cago restaurants. Some of them are terrapin, but the greater part are mud turtles, soft shell and "snappers." The demand for mushrooms is enormous and several hundred men and women make a business during the summer and fall of scouring the woods along tho "north shore" and gathering the wild varieties that grow there. Oth ers make a living hunting frogs to supply the big hotels and the growing of Belgian hares for market is now an established industry. Car Hierc-.a in China."

One of the latest publications issued by the office of the public roads of the United States Department of Agricul ture, treats of the split log drag, an implement which numerous experi ments have conclusively shown to be the greatest possible Doon to keep earth roads smooth and passable. Be cause of its simplicity, its efficiency and its cheapness, both in construc tion and operation, it is destined to come more and more into general use. With the drag properly built and its use well understood the maintenance of earth roads becomes a simple and inexpensive matter. At the present time there are approx imately 1I,h,oxn miles of earth roads in the United States. Some of the most important of these roads will eventually be improved with stone, gravel and other materials. Many others which are equally important, can not be so improved on account of same manner over tne oiner nan oi lack of funds or suitable materials, j the roadway.

By many it is deemed best to place a strip of iron along the lower face of the front slab for a cutting blade and to prevent the drag from wearing. The drag may bo fastened to the doubletree by means of a trace chain. The chain should be wrapped around the left- hand or rear stake and passed over the front slab.

Mr. Sanborn said "the least expense per mile per annum for split-log dragging was .$l..r, the greatest a little over Jftl. and the aver age expense per mile for ,Vi miles a little over .'!., I have lived along this road all my life and never in 4o years have I seen it freer from mud and dust, despite the fact that during the season we have experienced the ex tremes of weather conditions." The testimony of Mr. Aishton is equally strong. Learning that a township in Iowa had been making an investigation of the split-log drag and had been experimenting with it for a wear on lis miles of highway, he sent an agent to secure information. It was reported that although the town oij tua ,k d and of hJr, two m(,g to operate them, the total expense for one year averaged but $2.4 a mile, and the roads were reported to have bfen "like a race track" the greater portion of the year.
