MISSISSIPPI news notes. Chancellor Fulton, of the Uni ve'fitf Mississippi, expresses himself as highly gratified at the failure of the Legislature to pass Ibii bill declaring against co-edu cation of the sexes at the institu tion, Chancellor Fulton is on re cord as having opposed the co education scheme " hen it was first rtiggeated by the board of trus tees, but ho now declares that the experiment has proven a complete nice ess. * * * Ancient of much interest to Sunday school workers in this Ktc iviH hO-Rie meeting of the tfysippi Conference Sunday School Association which will bo convened at Utica on the 24th of fMarch for a three dflV-’ session, ftmf.

Thar o will he about one hundred delegates in attendance. • • • Fruit growers in this section of Mississippi report that the pros pect for the coming season is the (.tightest for several years,and the outlook fora record breaking yield. The weather has I*on continuously cold fur over two months, betokening an early spring, and thus far there has been no swelling of buds in any variety of fruit. The first two weeks in March are regarded as the critical period, and if these can be passed without, damage to the prospective crop the fruit fanners will feel safe for the sea son. • • * The fruit acreage in this State has been steadily increasing for several years and during the pre sent season thousands of new or chards are expected to bear. The peach is the favorite fruit, being, in fact, the only fruit that can bo grown with any great degree of success, followed by financiifl re muneration. Many of the fig trees killed by the severe weather of 198 have since sprung into life and will hear this year. Among the truck farmers the situation is also unusually bright. Tomato and cabbage acreage will lie fully equal, if it does not great ly surpass that of last year, and the sale of fertilizers has been ab u)l rnally heavy. Tomato and cabbage plants in the central and Southern sections of the State arc now in cold frames awaiting the first opportunity for transplanting to the fields, and a large variety of other vegetables will bo plant ed. < The many successes of Inst sea son in favored sections has inspir ed other communities to experi ment in truck and fruit farming. The last opportunity of the Choctaw Indians in Mississippi to establish theft identity and right to participate in the distribution of Indian Territory lands will bo accorded by the Dawes Commis sion, which meets in Meridian on the 14th of April, and will conti nue in session two weeks. It is officially announced that this will be the last session of the commis sion in this State. The lands which those Indians arc now en deavoring ,to establish proof of claim were promised by the Gov ernment at the treaty of Dancing Rabbit in September, 1832, or nearly seventy years ago. It is likely that there will bo finite a number of applicants for Die office of assistant Attorney General created by an act just passed hy the Legislature. Quite a number of names have .been suggested, but thus far the only amounted, applicant is lion. W. Ik Lockwood, a young attorney of Crystal Springs. • • • Mississippi will have about fif teen legal bangings within the next sixty days, and in a largo number of instances the boards of supervisors -of the counties where these executions are to take place have decided that they shall be public. Some protest has been raised by the press on this account the claim being asserted that it is return of barbarism and a pan dering to the lowest class of hu manity. 1 ho Coahoma county authorities now engaged in an effort to probe to the bottom of a myste rious murder committed in that county. The dead body of a well dressed negro, name unknown, ' vas found lying by the roadside ueur the river bank, and nearby was picked up a green limb cover ed with blood and a bloody hat. A *®*rch of the pockets disclosed in silver and evidently the purpose of the murder was not robbery. Ihe prospective candidates for Congress are E. J. Bowers of Bay pt. Louis, N. C.

DAVID B. HILL. At a dinner in Now York on Saturday evening last, given by the Manhattan Club. One of the speakers was Hon. David 11. Hill, who was enthusiastically received and applauded by Bryan Dem ocrats. Mr. Hill said: “Wo trace our political lineage back to Jefferson, who was the author of that immortal protest against British imperialism.knoWn as the Declaration of Indepen dence. Opposition to (lie precepts and practices of imperialism was thus one of the cardinal principles of our party faith at the very in ception of the government. Wo should adhere to the policy in volved in Jeffersonian expansion, the reasonable and natural ac quirement of territory adjacent to our own. ••Wherever the American flag of right flouts, ft should bo • an emblem of a free government anil the aegis of constitutional li berty, neither should tariff wars nor custom duties obstruct tbo path of American trade from one portion of this government to another portion. “The Democratic pany should again press to the front the issue of revenue reform. The Repu blican principle of practice of protection is bassed on the right to use the powers of government for individual purposes. Our Re publican friends make revenue the incident and protection the main purpose of all tariff taxation. “The policy of reciprocity is and always has been a Komocra tio policy. “VVc believe in a strict cons truction of the federal constitu tion as essential for the public welfare. “Wo believe in homo rule for States. “We favor an amendment to the constitution providing for the election ,-f United States Sena tors by the people. “Opposition to dangerous cor porate combines of capital should continue to lie the Democratic position. “The Monroe doctrine, first made by President Monroe,shows a settled policy of this republic. “V\o believe in hard money— the money of the constitution and are unalterably opposed to irredeemable paper currency. “if further enunciation of De mocratic policy upon the financial question is legardud necessary in view of the existing monetary con ditions, then it is suggested that a simple declaration in favor of the general principle of bimetallism furnishes a common ground upon which all can stand.” The city of Meridian will short ly have an official fire which will destroy about one million dollars’ world of city warrants. In a few days the city finance cnmmiitoo will meet and pass an order doom ing the largo accumulation of can celed citv warrants of years past to destruction in the flames. Tim old warrants arc a nuisance to the clerk, stored away in the big vault, and it is his desire to have them destroyed to make room for more valuable papers. A Boston rag-picker was fined S2O for using the United States flag as a bag for his scraps. It was stained and soiled but its orig inal design was not effaced so he was judged guilty of “contempt uous use” of the national emblem. Help- Nature Babies and children need proper food, rarely ever medi cine. If they do not thrive on their food something is wrong. They need a little help to get their digestive machinery working properly. PBM" COD LIVER OIL WITH HYPOPHOSPMITES or LIME ,SODA will generally correct this difficulty. If you will put from one fourth to half a teaspoonful in baby’s bottle three or four •times a day you will soon sec a marked improvement. For | larger children, from half to \ a teaspoonful, according to , age, dissolved in their milk, if you so desire, will very soon show its great nourish ing power. If the mother s mifk docs not nourish the baby, she needs the emul sion. It will show an effect at once both upon mother and child. 50c. and |i.ms all dnujiata.

Francis, of Missouri, is the author of an article in the current number of the Manufacturers’ Record, entit led “Best Things in the Old South Unchanged.” Ho says: ‘‘in her great industrial prosperity the South has lost none of her old lime hospitality, none of her stur dy adherence to honorable busi ness methods.” The publishers of “Tarry Thou Till I Come” have been besieged with letters asking for the address of the author, Dr. George Croly, who died in 1800, They haye adopted this stereotyped answer; “Wo have no doubt as to the pre sent abode of Dr. Croly as he was a good man; but the United States postal authorities have no facili ties for sending letters thither.” One of the unfortunate results of the Tillman-McLaurin tight in the Senate last Saturday is the re vival of stories about all the simi lar disgraceful occurrences that have taken place in Congress— occurrences it would bo much better for the country to forget. Governor Longino has signed the bill appropriating $50,000 to have Mississippi represented at the St. Louis World’s Fair. BAY ST. LOUIS, MISSISSIPPI, SATURDAY, MARCH 1, 1902. A BRILLIANT SPECTACLE. The Official Reception Tendered at the White House. Rarely in its history Ims the White House been the scene of a inoie brilliant spectacle than Mon day when President Roosevelt welcomed to tbo United States Prince Henry of Prussia. Ever since the announcement was made that the prince would visit this country, the arrangements for this reception had been the subject of j frequent discussion at the meet ings of the cabinet and details of tbo plan for the entertainment and oanfort of ibe royal visitor, have constantly been referred to tbc president for suggestion or approval. It has been the presi dent's wish, that avoiding all os tentation, the prince hp given a cordial welcome. So far as fede ral authority control* in the mat ter that plan has been carried out. The prince has met the president and nothing could have been morn cordial and ingenuous than the president's greeting which was re lumed by Prince Henry in full measure. Special preparations were made at t fie White House for this event. All of the State apartment on the first floor had received much at tention from the goverment flo rists, but the decorations of the three communication parlors —the Blue Room, where the president and prince met and exchanged their greetings; the parlor occu pied by Mrs. and Miss Roosevelt, aud the Green Room,‘whore there was assembled the members of the cabinet and their ladies, the wife of Secretary Cortelyou, and a few invited guests—were exquisitely beautiful. The great East Room, where wore conducted the prince’s suite,the German ambassador and staff, the American officers and other prominent guests, was handsomely decorated. In these State apartments, as elsewhere unseemly display had been care fully avoided, but the rich furni ture and draperies, the artistically arranged vases filled with great clusters of American beauty rosea and other bloattoms.tho evergreens and the gorgeous uniforms of the prince and his party combined to make the scene one of exceptio nal brilliancy and beauty. It was 10:45 o’clock When the escort in cavalry column swung through the east gate and at a Irisk pace passed up the broad 'driveway to the White House. Hero the column broke into sin gle rank, facing the main entrance. At the word of command as the prince’s carriage passed the gale, with that snap and precision which has made the Second Regi ment famous, every sabre flashed from its scabbard and came to the : position of present. A dctach- I ment of marines headed by its famous band had taken place at (the right and loft of the main en trance, facing north. The first carriage containing the prince, I Secretary Hay and Rear-Admiral Evans drove up at a rapid pace and as it passed upon the porte jcochc, the marine band struck up Itho German national air, which I was continued until all the com- puny had left their carnages. At tho carriage door the prince was met by Ass‘t Secretary Pearce and the German ambassador and escorted to.the East Room. From there the prince alone was con ducted to tho Hluo parlor, where the president was in waiting to receive him. In conformity with diplomatic etiquette the president received the royal visitor in pri- vate and without introduction. This was made necessary by.the fact that there is now in the tlnit cd States no representative of tho Gorman nation of sufficiently high rank to present to tho president u representative of the Gorman em peror. After tho greetings had been extended, tho president led the way to tho adjoining parlor and introduced him to Mrs. Roosevelt and his daughter, Miss Alice, a few words with them, the royal visitor was conducted into the Green room and introduced to the members of tho cabinet and their ladies. After ceremony the fol lowing stotement was made by Assistant Secretary Pearce: “The conven-alion between the president and the prince was of a purely formal nature and of no political significance further than contained in the usual general ex pressions of international amity and good will.” The party then prooceded to the East room where tlxe members of the prince’s suite were intro duced to the president. The en tire ceremony occupied just thirty minutes. On the party reappear ing the marine band played “Hands Across the .Sea,” and with a few sharp military commands, the drive to the German embassy was begun. CASTOR IA For Infants and Children.

THE RECORD BROKEN, * This Session Will do Down as The' Five Clinton Dollar Legislature. Jackson, Feb. 26.—The present Legislature lias broken all pre vious records in making appro priation. Up to the present time over four million dollars have been set aside for various purposes, and bills are still pend ing which carry appropriations aggregating fully one million dollars more. The special legis lative session will go down in bin ton ns the “live million dollar Legislature,” and the expendi tures thus far made arc fully orie million in excess of those made at the regular session two years ago. Among the larger appropriations arc $2,500,000 forcommon schools SIOO,OOO for the confederate sol dier’sponsion, $750,000 far the Mississippi Insane Hospital, and nearly half a million for the four State educational institutions.
