Picayune) One of the acts of the present Legis lature which is bringing results, is that which provides for cases for the preser vation of battle flags, the amount appro priated being SI,OOO. Director Dunbar Rowland, of the Bureau of Archives and History, has taken the preliminary steps for securing the necessary cases and they will be in hand shortly, it is be lieved. The first fruits of this provision were seen yesterday, when there arrived at the capitol two tattered silken ban ners bearing the sacred Stars and Bars, both mad'' by the lovely and devoted women of Jefferson county in I*6l, both of which saw service in the field, one of which bears the marks of shots and shells, and while tattered, bears every evidence of having been well nurtured since the trying times which brought the banners into existence. One of these flags was that of the Charley Clark Rifles, of Union church, which company was mustered into the service in April, 1S(>1, the flag bearing that date. It was carried to the front and was in action in the early days of the campaigning in Virginia, and was kept with the company until the adop tion of the battle flag when the survivors of the company returned it to Jeffeison county, where it was kept in the family of Mrs. Galbreath who still retained it among her precious relics of the time. Ehe intrusted it to the care of A. M. McCallum, who took it in charge and brought to Jackson. Had she not been assured that the flag would be as well preserved as if in her own custody, Mrs. Galbreath, it is stated, would never have consented to its leaving her life time. The other flag was that of the Rodney Guards, a company also organized in Jefferson county, and was brought along with the Union Church flag by Mr. Jos eph King, a survivor of the company, who was proud to deliver it into the hands of Mrs. Eron Gregory in the Ar chives Bureau office. The two commis saries were accompanied by Capt. John \V. Broughton, of Red Lick, who is dis trict agent for the Archives and Histo ry Bureau, and who has been active in securing trophies from that interesting and romantic section of Mississippi from which so many brave and noble men went forth in full tide of glorious and eager youth to battle for the principles they loved. It is probable other tro phies of this kind will be dug up and sent or brought to the Archives Depart ment as a result of the act providing for their preservation. She Worked Combination. A rather unusual divorce case was tried in Copiah county a few days ago. A wdfe has no difficulty in finding the combination to her husband’s pants pocket, but according to the following from the Jackson News, this wife found the combination to her husband’s store safe: State Senator M S. McNeil has re turned from nazlehurst, where he was engaged for three days in the trial of a rather singular divorce suit in the Co piah county chancery court. The proceeding was instituted by W. B. Boyd, a prominent merchant of Crys tal Springs, against his wdfe, Ella Mc- Cain, who sought severance of the mat rimonial bond on the ground of cruel and inhuman conduct. He was repre sented by Senator McNeil, while Hon. R. N. Miller acted as counsel for the defendant, and three full days were con sumed with the taking of testimony, at the conclusion of which the jury failed to reach a verdict. The bill of complaint alleged that Mrs. Boyd invaded the furniture store kept by her husband, rifled the safe of its contents, frequently changed the com bination on the safe, and went around the town telling citizens not to trade with her husband, as he was a cheat and a fraud. All of this was disputed in the answer to the bill, and a large amount of conflicting testimony was offered at the trial. Mrs. Boyd was formerly Miss McCain, of Water Valley.” Notable Increase in the Bay St. Louis P. O. Receipts.

J Bowers in the sixth district, but he has not consented to run; and there is not much likelihood that he will do so, especially since Mr. Bowers has been selected as chairman of the democratic campaign committee, and it is regarded as quite fitting that he should again be given the endorsement of his constituents. —Jackson News.

The glories of the Easter season have come and gone, but the wonderful crea tions of the milliner’s art are still with us for further exhibition. The cost was great, but in most cases necessary to keep matrons and maids in good humor for that great consummation of their hopes for distinguished appearance. It only remains to pay the bills of those who bought upon credit, and to think over the prodigious sum expended by the American people. Over $200,- OOOjOOO is expended every year by our wives and daughters for millinery manu factured in this country, besides the millions for what is imported. The tariff tax on such articles of adornment increases the price of milli nery', more than 5u per cent, on the average, for the manufacturers are pro tected by the tariff tax which is col lected on imported millinery, so that they can add to the price of the home product about what the Imported arti cles have to pay at the custom house. Every woman, therefore, is interested in the tariff question, for through the protection it gives the American manu facturer the cost of hats and bonnets is increased quite 50 per cent. If the present tariff rates on millinery were reduced to 20 per cent., the women of the country would save nearly one-third of what they now pay for such articles, whether imported or made in this coun try', for the price of the American manu factured goods would have to decline to meet the reduced cost of the imported article. It would be tedious to give all the tariff rates on hats and bonnets, or the many articles tnat go into the hats and bonnets that are made up in this country, but the tariff tax runs from 50 to 70 per cent, of the cost of the articles in the country from which they are im ported; so that if a hat cost $lO in Paris, the tariff tax on it is from $5 to ST, and as the cost is often much greater than this, therefore the tariff tax is so much greater in proportion. • The protectionists tell us that we must be walling to pay this import duty to protect our manufacturers from foreign competition and to protect American labor in being paid higher wages than the foreign laborer gets. The Demo crats claim that to reduce the tariff to a reasonable rate, would still give the American laborer all the protection he needs, while at the same time producing enough revenue from customs duties to run the government. Under such a Democratic system the * rusts and com bines that control so many articles of necessity w'ould have to reduce the price they charge, and the present high cost of living would be greatly reduced. Nearly everything we consume, or wear, is protected by a high tariff rate, and whether we buy imported articles on which the government has collected the duty, or similar home manufactured articles, on which the trusts, combines, or protected manufacturer has collected the tax, by adding the tariff rate to their profit, there is no escape from the high prices which the tariff causes, and the American consumer has to pay the bills. Wives and mothers should talk this over with the bread winners of the family and urge them to vote for the candidates of the party w'ho will vote to revise this unreasonable tariff law that taxes everyone unmercifully from the cradle to the grave. CASTORIA. Bears the Kind Yo’j Have Always Bought ANTHONY HOPE’S NEW STORY. “Sophy of Kravonia,” Said to Be More Thrilling Tnan “The Prisoner of Zenda,” to Appear Serially. Good news for lovers of stirring ro mance ! Anthony Hope has w'ritten a new story in the style of “The Prisoner of Zenda”, and even surpassing it in interest. It is called “Sophy of Kra vonia” and is to appear exclusively in The Sunday Magazine of the Chicago Record-Herald, beginning April 22. The mysterious country of Kravonia lies in the same romantic region of southern Europe as Zenda, but the new story has no connection with that of the famous Rudolph Rassendyll. Its cen tral figure is a still more interesting person—a courageous and beautiful her oine, who rises from lowly life to the throne. Sophy de Gruche is her name, and she loves the brave, but unfortunate Prince Sergius, as she proves in a series of the most exciting events in modern fiction. Her trials and triumphs are due to the existence of two factions in the court. One is loyal to the true heir apparent, Prince Sergius, and the other seeks to place upon the throne the little son of Countess EUenburg, the king’s morganatic wife. The conspiracy leads to many dramatic scenes, one of the most thrilling being that in which the old king discovers the guilt of the countess and drops dead at a moment when things are in a perilous condition for Sergius and his bride. How Sophy comes out of this turmoil of intrigue, battle, tears and joy, Anthony Hope re veals in his own inimitable style. The first installment of ‘‘Sophy of Kravonia” will appear April 22. On account of the great demand for this fascinating story it will be wise to order your copy of The Sunday Record i Herald well in advance. BAY SAINT LOUIS, MISSISSIPPI, SATURDAY, APRIL 21, 1906. | CUT IT OUT. Mississippi is rotten with politics. The legislature is stirred up as bad as if it w'ere a bee hive kicked over by a mule. A large part of the press of the State is as busy as a negro preacher with yellow jackets in his pants,| and the office seekers are trotting around like road hogs. Such a condition at this early date is a disgrace to the Slate. To inject into the State at this time a heated campaign for all the offices from constable to United States senator, means that all other interests will be relegated to the rear, and that industrial activity will cease for nearly two years. It is an undisputed fact that business is always dull during election years; therefore, the longer the public mind is occupied with polities the longer the dull season will be upon us. We have scarcely recovered from the yellow fever campaign, and now we are thrust into a political campaign. When may we look for an industrial campaign ? If the State papers that are devoting whole columns to advocating their choice for senator, governor, or some other job for some other fellow, would , devote the same time and space to pointing out the natural advantages of Mississippi for the investment of capi- j tal in the various industries, and to the j legislative needs of the State, they | would serve the people to a much better advantage. If the legislature would “cut politics out” and get right down to business, the financial condition of tne State might be considerably im proved. The great trouble is, we put too much stress on men instead of measures. We assume the role of hero makeis and worshipers rather than industrial devel opers. Too many of us would rather make a great big rich politician than a great big rich State. Cut it out; it is too early to begin the campaign. Let’s have more business and less politics.—McComb City Enter prise. HENRY LIENHARD DEAD. Wealthy Lumber Manufacturer Suc cumbs at His Home at Handsboro. Henry Lienhard, one of the wealthiest men in Mississippi, who recently retired from active life after amass ing a fortune in the lumber busi ness, died at his home at Handsboro Tuesday morning at 12:30 o’clock. He was 72 years of age. The immediate illness extended over a period of but ten days, although Mr. Lienhard had been subject to attacks from a malady seve ral times. Henry Lienhard was truly a self-made man. Coming to America from Swit zerland when quite a young man, he built up one of the greatest industries in the South without one cent of origi nal capital. He came over on the same ship with Henry Lochte, the well-known broker and merchant of New Orleans, and through all the years since leaving the old country the two have remained steadfast friends. The funeral took place Tuesday after noon at 3 o’clock, interment being made in the Handsboro Cemetery. Rev. D. I. Temple, of the Presbyterian Church, performed the services. The pallbear ers were J. F. Stuart, A. G. Loposer, Henry Latimer, A. W. Loposer, John Arthur and Will Reeves. The floral of ferings were magnificent, and the casket and grave were hidden beneath a wealth of beautiful creations. Mr. Lienhard was a native of Bilten Ct., Glaarus, Switzerland. He em ; barked in the saw milling business at Handsboro before the Civil War, and, although his milling plant was twice destroyed by fire, he managed to get a new foothold each time. A few months ago he sold his interests connected with his milling business to the L. N. Dantz ler Lumber Company, of Mosspoint, which is now operated under the name of the Handsboro Lumber Company. Since retiring from active work in busi ness, it was the intention of Mr. Lien- To Beautify Your Complexion IU TBU DATS, CSB TRADING) LA TKE UNEQUALED BEAUTIFIER.

New Orleans, La., April 16. —The en tertainment committee of the United Confederate Veterans’ reunion has is sued the following announcement: “In connection with the coming re union at New Orleans there will be a grand entertainment with many novel features in the auditorium on Wednes day night, April 25, and there will be a monster ball in the same place on the night of Thursday, April 26, with spe cial old-fashioned dances for the vet erans, “To both of these functions all veter ans and sons of veterans in uniform or with badges and the ladies accompany ing them will be admitted free, and alj ladies identified with any of the Con federate organizations will be similarly admitted. “Any particulars regarding these en tertainments may be obtained from Mr. V.
