To drink buttermilk has been something of a fashion able “fad.** Now the State Food Commissioner reports that it isn’t buttermilk at ail, but a mixture of acid and skim milk. It cost about a cent a quart and sold for five cents a glass. JUDGE NILES REVERSES OPINION. Holds That Lumber May Be Remo rad from Leased Sixteenth Section Lands. Judge Henry C. Niles has rendered a decree in settlement of the several six teenth section suits now pending in the Federal court, adhering to his former ruling that the lessee of sixteenth sec tion lands has the right to remove mer chantable timber therefrom. The decree is in direct conflict with the decision of the Mississippi supreme court, on the same question, the latter tribunal having reversed itself after Judge Truly left the bench by holding that lessees have no right to remove timber from these lands. Timber rights valued at from $4,000,- 000 are involved in the federal branch of the sixteenth section controversy, a large number of the leases on lands of this character in the pincy woods belt being held by non-residents, while many others held by resident parties were transferred to non-residents prior to the date on which the Mississippi supreme court rendered the celebrated decision reversing itself, thus taking the cases out of the jurisdiction of the State courts. Added interests is given to the litiga tion by the fact that during the ap proaching legislative session, a bill will be introduced having as its proclaimed purpose the invalidation of the supreme court decision,on the ground that lessees of sixteenth section lands procured the same leases under the belief that such leases conveyed the right to remove timber from the lands, and the supreme court ruling, is in effect, a repudiation of legal contracts. This proposed law will be for the re lief of resident holders of sixteenth sec tion leases. The non-resident holders of sixteenth section leases. The non resident holders are confident that Judge Niles will be sustained by the United States supreme court, and will continue to remove tiraoer from the lands on which they hold leases. Acting on the theory that the common school fund of the various counties have been defrauded under these leases, State Revenue Agent Adams is pre paring suits against sixteenth section lessees to recover the value of timber removed from the tracts. If he can secure his own consent, Hon. R, Henry, the versatile editor of the Jackson Daily Clarion Ledger, will become a candidate for Congress from the Eighth District to succeed John Sharp Williams. The nnriber of can didates so far was 22, and Mr, Henry 1 will make “23”. Asked what would be his pldtform, he said; “To serve the people of the Eighth District to the very best of my ability, should they decide that I shall represent them in Congress; to favor and advocate whatever they favor, and to oppose what they may op pose, along established lines of democ racy.” C?

BAY SAINT LOUIS, MISSISSIPPI, SATURDAY. JANUARY 4, 1908. THE HEART OF A CHILD. There are hearts that are seemingly guileless and frank, All open and sunny and mild; With craftier natures of o?en they take rank. But not with the heart of a child. With innocent manner apparently true. And with words there are many be guiled: But under the surface, if we only knew, There is naught like the heart of a child. Fair words of confidence, words of be lief, A faith without doubt it is styled; ’Tis oft like a poison that brings only grief— ’Tis not like the heart of a child. As snow that falls softly and whitens the land All spotless on some open wild, Just so without blemish —all pure with- \ out brand-- We find the fair heart of a child. The man with the sorrows, the only! pure soul. With clean hands and heart unde- | filed Pointed upward and said that if we | would reach the goal We must be like the heart of a child. —lste, in High School Idea. POLITICS. All courageous and sincere, Patriotic too. Striving to efface the tear For each suffering mortal here— Giving toil its due. Feerless, frank, and generous— Peerless, undismayed— That’s us! Now behold the other side: Secret, dark, and vile, Stoepped in avarice and pride, Wealth and power raissapplied, Plundering with a smile. Shattering Freedom’s priceless gem, Sneering as we strive to stem Fierce corruption’s tide— That’s them. Washington Star. Miss Elizabeth Dillmann and Mr. Pedro Boudin, both of this city, were married Tuesday morning by Rev. Father J. M. Prendergast, in the presence of a number of relatives and friends. Mrs. F. Olivari and Miss Olivari re turned yesterday morning from Pass Christian, where they spent New Year’s with their relatives, Mr. and Mrs. R. N.

The flight to Honduras of Adler and Schwartz, of New Orleans, to Honduras on board the steamer Alps, continues the one topic of conversation and dis cussion at home and away. In summing up the spectacular flight of the two men, its disastrous financial sequel, a retrospective view of some “frenzied financiers” and their opera tions in New Orleans during 1907 is pertinent. “Ferd” Dudenhefar, son of the late Senator Dudenhefer, and tax-collector for the third New Orleans district, stole about $70,000 in the early part of last April, confessed to Governor Blanchard In the St. Charles Hotel, and was al lowed to flee from the city. He squan dered the most of the stolen taxes on a “Ham Tree” show chorus giddy. “Dudie” is in Honduras. District Attorney J. Porter Parker recently sued to recover $20,000 on Dudenhefer’s bond. The bonding company is resisting pay ment, and in an answer filed Tuesday declares the State officials were negli gent, so there is a fight on for the amount of the bond. The State is still out nearly all he stole. Races, wine and the “Ham Tree” giddy girl cost Louisiana nearly $70,000. Nathan E. Wohl, former head of a big Canal street establishment, on sheer nerve became a “high financier” abort town, but when things went the wrong way ~raised” bank and other stock shares and borrowed more than SIOO,OOO on them. Then he disappeared. He is still gone. Business men are “holding the bag”. Charles E. Letten, confidential clerk to John Fitzpatrick, First district tax collector, also “disappeared” one day a few months ago. An examination of Letten’s books showed that he had sto len $116,000. Letten didn’t have the courage to jump into the Mississippi river, on whose banks he wandered for two or three days; so he was caught, jailed and confessed that he gave his stealings to Virginia Reed, a Dauphine street ne gress. He is in jail, Captain Fitzpatrick paid up the shortage, and during the last few days the public has been furnished with some sensational statements con cerning Virg'nia’s “jev. els” ~ alleged to have been bought with the cash Letten stole. Gus Lehmann, respected, rich and prominent in the commercial world, disappeared one day a few weeks ago. His body was found in the Mississippi river. Subsequent developments showed that he, too, had plunged too deeply into varied schemes and became involved for hundreds of thousands of dollars. Next came the announcement that William Adler had resigned the presi dency of the State National Bank. It was given out that he had “gone East”, but he “went South” on the good ship Alps, which, with her $25,000 cargo, was wrecked on Glover’s Reef, fifty miles this side of Puerto Cortez, Hon duras. With Adler went Moses Schwartz, the big foundry man. Adler's flight, its seqiTel and the financial disturbances it caused are subjects of daily newspaper articles. ___________ oA.s*roliiiA.. flears the The Kind ton \\m Alwajff D&gA vr PROFESSIONAL CARDS.

You can’t remove eye defect TES 1 ED with a rub of the finger, and you may cause increased FREE. local irritation. . 1 Neither can you relieve the strain by “hoping your eyes will become stronger,” weak eyes, when in neel of glasses go from bid to worse. You may sometimes overcome, or in the parlance of optics, “accommo date” a defect by persistently taxing the muscles ot the eyes, but you can not cure it by that method of treatment.
