A poet one time asked us what is per advontare line it, and died well knowing we had not the wit required to strike it. He simply tried, before he died, to give us one so hid we’d work at it till time shall quit, and by the gods he did. The breath of summer time shall reuse the festive calf to action, and what wit h unrestrained carouse he’ll do for an at traction. He’ll buck and dance around the manse in no great show of grace , and wave his tail with brave assail in Mr. Halley’s face. The heavy-droning bumble-bee shall kiss the blushing clover, and skies as blue as any sea shall bend the planet over. The graduate shall right the state from Maine across to Yuma, and the groom in stress shall S. O. S. his dad for more mazuma. Of June it may be said, indeed, It is a great invention, And one we rather badly need To somew’hat ease the tension. If we’re to fish, to loaf and wish, Or hearken Nature’s call, We’ll do it soon or late in June, Or not do it at all. The comet having hung about until we were converted, shall gradually pe ter out and leave us quite deserted. We must recall we are not all the world it sets aright, and bid it speed where there is need to cause another fright. It is a sort of cop upon a beat of great 1 j | Coast Plumbing Cos., | - 5^ : * i : I •c : = Plumbing, Steam and Gas Fitting, = % I Tinning and Electrical Work.

They have John D.’s and Morgan P.’s on many a distant ball, and were it not for Halley hot these few would grab it all. A Guggenheim would capture Mars, a Rockefeller Venus, and Morgans on the other stars would utterly demean us. We’d even be, unhappily, quite naked where we sit if it were not that Halley got around and saw to it. It will not ail at once appear how far the comet served us, or just to what ex tent the fear prevailed while it observed us; but safe to say that for a day or thereabouts somewheres the trusts won’t find it half so hard to tell our things from theirs. However, be that as it may, The comet will outpace us, And Theodorus on a day Will happily embrace us. The hemisphere will tip, wo fear, Beneath his mighty track, But even to the liars will Rejoice to see him back. ’Twere bettor to be in a club and branded Ananias than languish sadly as a dub unsung or honored by us. The chance for fame since Afric gam e wooed this extraordinary son of the Dutch has not been much, and he is welcome, very. Uur Mr. Taft’s a good old soul, and plugs along undaunted, but Theodorus on the whole was rather what we wanted. We never cease to prate of p eace and say that war is bad, but even so it does get slow with no one very mad. We rather liked the pleasant sound of peace gone willy-nilly, and someone being chased around the White House with a billy. We’ve missed it much for lack of Dutch in smiling Mr. Taft, and, mortal sin, but it has been a long time since we laughed. The present Congress will conclude Where freedom’s latest squawk was. And turn to have its work reviewed By all the big chautauquas. The President will pitch his tent At Beverly again, And the news anon will dwell upon The likelihood of rain. Upon the 21st the sun will reach the line of Cancer, and summer not too un derdone will haply be the answer. This is, they say, the longest day, however you may search, but yon will hardly notice it unless you are at church. At any rate, the swimming -hole will get a little warmer, and harvest time will vex the soul and slumber of the farmer. He’ll pray for hands to tend his lands, spread food and tie the dog; and the wary tramp will make his camp inside a hollow log. The rich will hie aw r ay to spend the summer by the water—to live until the season’s end the glad life of an otter. The poor, meanwhile, will sweetly srpile, however fortune goes, and splash and rub inside the tub alternate with the clothes. The singing stars will re-indulge their old familiar riddle, and milk and butter milk will bulge the boarder round the middle. The heart for June will hum a tune, or plenty or a crust, and the whip poorwill when night is still will whistle like to bust. And then July will come around In terrible ascendance, And we will shoot each other up Observing independence. A new’ impetus to the building boom is reported from Jackson, where the number of new residences in course of actual construction is estimated at from 100 to 200, while there are more than a half dozen mercantile buildings under way. Practically all the schools and col leges in the State closed during the past week, and with few exceptions the re mainder are in the midst of their com mencement exercises now. BAY SAINT LOUIS, MISSISSIPPI, SATURDAY. JUNE 4, 1910. TIMES-DEMOCRAT’S PUBLISHER DEAD. Page M. Baker, for the last twenty one years publisher of the New Orlean Times-Democrat, died at his home in New Orleans at a late hour Saturday evening. Mr. Baker had suffered from a com plicated disease for several years, but his illness did not force him to release the active management of the Times- Democrat until three months ago, Mr. Baker was born at Pensacola, Fla., in 1840. He came to New Orleans hen a young man and enlisted in the Confederate army in this city. He served with the Washington Artillery at Antietam and in several battles in Virginia. Later he was transferred to the Confederate navy and served as midshipman until the close of the war. He was identified as a reporter and in various editorial capacities with the Picayune, Delta, Bulletin and other newspapers in New Orleans. In 1889 he became the publisher of the Times- Democrat. He is survived by his widow, one daughter and a brother, Major Henry H. Baker, all of whom reside in New Orleans. The death of Mr. Baker removes a most conspicuous and successful figure in Southern journalism, and his death is generally deplored. It was due to Mr. Baker’s fine sense of discrimination and lofty standard he had set in all de partments of his great public institu tion, the newspaper, that the Times- Democrat rapidly grew to the vast pro portion of success that has distinctly marked it. BETTER BUSINESS ERA By D. B. Bell. Mississippi merchants never had bet ter opportunities than now, and never before have they shown themselves so much alive to their advantages. Even though a realization of the ne cessity for action on their part has been required to bring about this condition of affairs among some of them, it is un questionably here. And perhaps the most hopeful sign of all is that what had threatened to usurp the very life of the mercantile business, especially in rural communities and smaller towms, has been so checked that there seems to be no real reason to fear further serious competition from that source the mail order and catalogue houses. This has ueen brought about chiefly through the co-operation of the local press in every town and community, each making a strenuous fight for his home merchants, pointing out the illu sions, the fact that freights eat up more than the saving in the initial price to those who buy from catalogue houses, and the waking up of the merchants themselves. When properly told, it has not been difficult for the average citizen to under stand that somebody pays the freight, and that it isn’t the catalogue house. This has resulted in more liberal ad vertising on the part of the general merchant and a more intelligent use of advertising opportunities everywhere. Best of all, it has educated the public to a more systematic and regular study of advertising in their local papers, with th e result that they are able to keep t hemselves posted on the value of mer chandise, and often to practice the most intelligent forms of economy. This has been of little service to the dead ones, either in business or out of it. There are almost no snaps left, and only a few successes are now possible by reason of a pull. Fewer still suc ceed by dishonest methods. All this argues well for the increased supply and increased utilization of hon esty, energy, system and perseverance in business, without a liberal supply of each of which only a few men haye made good during the past decade. A meeting of all the boards of trust ees of all four of the State colleges will be held in Jackson on June 30th, when their management will be formally and officially turned over to the one new board, which will henceforth manage all of them under the new law. The new board consists of Messrs. B. A. Weaver, J. A. Glenn, J. S. Sexton, I. C. Enochs, T. L. Wainwright, Jas. Gordon, G. A. Mcllhenny and Frank C. Holmes, and the institutions they will govern are the University of Mississippi, A. & M, Col lege, Alcorn A. M. College, and Indus trial Institute and College. The Society of Colonial Dames in Natchez will place a bronze tablet in the Hall of Fame in the State House at >ack son commemorating the dominion of this territory by the three governments j of France, Spain and the United States. I They will also place a sun dial of carved ‘ stone on the site of Fort Rosalie, cor ' ner Wall and Jefferson streets in Nat chez, to mark the spot where the first American flag was raised by Col. Elliott in 1878. With the ulti mate purpose of bidding on the Mississippi State Normal Col lege site, members of the Laurel coun cil and the Jones county board of super visors visited the Louisiana State Nor mal at Natchitoches, and both of these organizations may decide to issue SIOO,- 000 bonds in accordance with the spe cial authority granted by the legisla ture. The Mississippi Live Stock and Dairy Association in its session at Starkville, adopted resolutions against the recent removal of Prof. Archibald Smith from the department of dairy husbandry at the A. & M. College and, consequently, from the position as ex-officio member of the Live Stock Sanitary Board, and asking for his reinstatement. Postmasters and rural carriers have taken the publicity method of trying to teach the public that drop letters going out on rural routes require two cents postage. Many letters are encountered with only one cent postage, and these are delayed until the deficiency is made good. Dr. T. M. Price, a prominent, physi cian of Raymond, died in his buggy whilereturningalone from a professonal call. His medicine case was open, showing that he had tried to administer medicine, but that he was unable to do so was indicated by the fact that none of the bottles had been opened. Attorney-General Hudson will shortly pass upon the right of boards of super visors to decline to fix a salary for county attorneys appointed by G overnor Noel under the new law. The prevail ing legal opinion in Jackson is that the supervisors must fix some salary between the limits of S6OO and SI,BOO, whether they think they need an attornay or not. Practically every municipal and com mercial organization in the State has appointed a list of delegates to attend the State-wide immigration convention which is to be held in Jackson on June 21 and 22. The convention promises to be much the most important gathering of its kind ever held in the State. Wra. Cage, a negro who visited the governor’s office to make a charge of peonage against a prominent Rankin county farmer, and who was advised to make his complaint before the Federal officials, failed to appear at the govern ment building, and his action caused a good deal of speculation around the capitol. The Ten-Mile Lumber Company, with its 21 miles of railway and several thousand acres of timber lands near Gulfport, has sold out to the L. N. Dantzler Lumber Cos., already one of the largest in the South. The deal in volves probably a quart er of a million dollars. For the second time within a year the voters of Biloxi have rejected the pro posed commission form of government at the polls, the majority in this in stance having been 91 out of a total vote vote of 541.

A law suit sixty years old was before Chancellor G. G. Lyell in the Hinds county chancery court last week, and has not yet been finally disposed of. Hon. J. O. Gillespie has been re appointed by Judge Niles as referee in bankruptcy in the southern division of the southern district of Mississippi. The Supreme Court of the State held the sale of near-beer to be lawful, pro vided it is not proven to be intoxicating when drunk to excess. It is believed this will result in a revival of the sale of this class of beverage throughout the commonwealth. A CARD.
