Ellis and good wife, of Walnut Grove, Miss., have the sympathy of the press of the State and the people generally in the death of their only son, Trichel, on July 27. Young Ellis had graduated in June, came home full of honors and hopeful of the future, and in a week was stricken down, the result, it is said, of over-study. Mr. Ellis is a warm friend of Dr. Bailey, of this city, and Mrs. Ellis is gratefully remembered by this writer and wife in the time of illness while traveling some few years since. ______ Friday, August 7, has been set aside as Governor’s Day at Camp Noel.

A press telegram from Selma, Ala., speaking of the illness of Capt. Barber, well-known railroad conductor, say: •‘To serve forty years as a railroad conductor and escape more than one disastrous.wreck with slight inlury and to die from the effects of the wound of a poisonous fin of a catfish appears to be the fate of Capt. Robert T. Barber, who is not expected to survive the night. He is the oldest conductor on the Southern railway, having started as baggage master of the Selma, Rome, and Dalton railway over 40 yean ago. He was in charge of the the train in the latter seventies that went through the Wazahechie bridge, near Shelby Springs, Judge William Byrd, of this city and others being killed. He was badly injured in a wreck near Demopolis in which Engineer Vining lost his life, and had been in several other wrecks. On July 9, while fishing from a boat at Biloxi, Miss., a catfiish finned him on the calf of the leg. The wound was not thought serious and no attention was paid to it until fever set up and then a physician was called, who pronounced that blood poisoning had infected the limb. Captain Barber was brought to Selma Thursday. Tonight reports from his bedside at a local hospital are to the effect that he is just alive and that he cannot recover. He is perhaps the best known railroad man of this section and has a large circle of friends.” Since the above was put in type The Echo learns Capt. Barber died. ROURKE IS NOW ON THE STATE FARM. H( HI Gmy Headed Old Mu a*d Not AM* To Do Hard Labor. Jackson Clarion-Ledger of July 14. Ex-Cashier Rourke of the Bank of Scranton, who was not long since sen tenced to five years in the penitentiary for receiving deposits after he knew that the bank was insolvent, was brought to Jackson Sunday by the sheriff of Jackson county, and they stopped over night at one of the hotels of the city.^ Yesterday morning Mr. Rourke was turned over to the penitentiary authori ties and Secretary Yerger of the board of trustees procured a buggy and drove him to the Rankin farm seven miles east of here. * Mr. Rourke is a man of. perhaps sixty five years of age, with gray hair and moustache,and is not able to perform the hard labor of the prison farm, but there is nothing else to do with him. Judge Hardy wrote the authorities to give him something in the way of office work, but there is nothing of the kind to give him—like there used to be, and he must take his medicine on the farm. Mr. Rouake hud no idea that he would be required to wear a suit of stripes on his arrival here, but he found there are no exceptions to that rule. Gaik a Advaact. The Madison County Herald puts it this way: We have found the cash-in-advance system imperative. It is not a question of the paper being afraid to t r uet this man or that man, but merely a business rule that will enable us to give our read rs a better paper. We believe the subscribers to the Herald will under stand and appreciate our position and give their support. The only man likely to kick on being requested to pay in advance is one who does not expect ta pay at all, and in losing such subscrib ers the paper is that much better off. Galfport Lumber Shipment*. S. E. Taylor & Cos., Gulfport lumber exporters, are in receipt of an additional contract for furnishing white oak for the Isthmian Canal Commission, deliv ery to be made at Panama. This con tract calls for 400,000 feet of lumber.

There is an improved feeling in the lumber trade of Pascagoula, Monday there being received several large orders for pitch pine timber and lumber by mill owners. The trade with the Argentine Republic continues strong. Among vessels receiving cargo for the River Platte are the Auckland, Excelsior and Hagerup. The Picayune's Jackson correspon dent says: “As to his lecture bureau work, Ex-Governor Vardanian has prac tically closed a contract that will keep him busy, under the auspices of the Dixie Lyceum Bureau, during the months of August, September and Oc tober, when he will treat the topic of “The Impending Crisis" from dozens of stages and platforms in the circuit. The first of the series, which was at Jackson, Team., on July 4, resulted gratifyingly ail round, financially and in every way, and the Ex-Governor has received numerous letters commenting favorably on that meeting." Mayor Charley Hioh, of Hattiesburg, of Sullivan-Kilraic fame, was defeated for re-election Wednesday by Dr. J, D, Donald* Tin majority was small * QANDERBONE’S FORECAST FOR a . T ri Written and copyrighted (lf06) for AUGUST, lie Sea Coast Echo, by C. IL Kieth. It was August the third, And quite soft were the skies, And it might be imagined Bill Taft was likewise; Yet he played it that day upon Bryan In a way politicians despise. Which they met on the train, As all candidates wifi, And they wagered a dinner In test of their skill— The winner to make the best pun on The homely cognomen of Bill. “I suppose,” Bryan said, Stirring ice in his tea, “That in view of the times, As between you and me, The smaller the bill is, the better, The which any one will agree.” “Very clever,” said Taft, “Here is mine: I*ve a hunch, . You are not very strong; (And hs gave him a punch) For they don’t like a long overdue biU! ” And the Peerless One paid for the lunch. August was named for Augustus Caesar, nephew and adopted son of Ju lius. August was every bit as great a man, but his uncle had a better press bureau. When the Black Band got Julius, his nephew was but 19; but he had already worn the toga virillis and shot a bear. Mark Antony tried to get him out of the way by making him a sort of vice-president, but after Augus tus had beaten him 5 up and 2 to play on the green at Modena the big drawing card of the Roman Chautauqua was glad to marry the young man’s sister and be a kind of Nick Longworth around the Roman White House. The Augustus age was the glory of Rome. Like Mr. Roosevelt, Augustus showed fight all the time, and the em pire enjoyed peace. There were no te formers, and times were good. The emperor liberally patronised literature, and even wrote verses. Poets like Hor ace and Virgil had their own enameled gold chariots with liveried alligator bait on the job behind, and instead of having the cruel circus games of Nero, the populace met in the collisium and wrote limericks for prizes. It is said that Augustus found Rome a city of brick, and left it a city of marble. He was a very proud man, and, in order to make his month as long as anybody’s, they took a day from February and added it to August, which originally had but thirty. Augustus deserves to be better known, and it is not his fault that- he is not. He tried everything from divorce to race suicide. He had three wives and one child, a daughter, Julia. He beat Antony and Cleopatra 9 to oin the famous engagement at Actium, enough in itself to have left bis name upon a 10-cent cigar, but he stood about the same chance against the luster of his immortal uncle as Miss Ethel Roose velt stands to share the limelight with her sister Alice. The dog days will return to paint The pond like Erin’s isle, And the boys will navigate the scum In good sea-going style; Reform will dig a few more pits For brewers and distillers, And the office seekers pass around His bum alfalfa fillers.
