Church, South : Whereas it has pleased Almighty God to remove from His earthly vineyard His faithful servant and our beloved sister, therefore, resolved: That we have learned with sincere sorrow of the death of Mrs. Laura B. Turner, so long a member of our church and community. That we shall always cherish the memory of her devoted Christian life, expressed in constant deeds of kind ness and of love, endearing her to so many in our midst, of every creed and class. That we honor the tender sympathy she felt for the unfortunate, so that she “stretched forth her hand to the poor; yea, she reached forth her hands to the needy.” That we shall strive to emulate her virtues and to have a share in the great reward which she now enjoys: “Come, ye blessed of my Father; inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world: for I was an hungered and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger and ye took me in: naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick and ye vis ited me: I was in prison and ye came unto me.” That we deeply sympathize with the husband and children in their great bereavement. That a ~opy of these resolutions be spread on the minutes of the Church Conference, a copy be furnished our local papers and the New Orleans Christian Advocate, and a copy be sent to the bereaved family* It is stated that Governor Brewer of Mississippi and Governor Hall of Lou isiana are to meet at Gulfport for a con ference on February 15 and that each will be accompanied by a few friends. Just what this conference is to be about is not stated, but it is supposed here that the executives of the two states will talk about the jurisdiction of Morris Island in the Mississippi river opposite Vicksburg, Just to whom this island does belong it is hard to say, but Mis sissippi has always been of the opinion that it belonged to her sister state on the other side of the river and has not attempted to control it. This island is used as a whiskey depot and a regular line of boats runs between the city of Vicksburg and the island at all hours of the day and night, and all of them are said to be loaded to the guards. Dr. Win, McAndrew, the distinguished principal of the Washington Irving High School, at New York City, has adopted the Literary Digest as a text book. Magazines are going into the schools for practical study in all parts of the United States, and the innova tion is commended by leading educa tors, The purpose of many magazines is educational, and especially is this true of the Literary Digest, the peru ! sal or study of which would give stu dent? introduction to modern literature, would keep them alive to the doings I and sayings of prominent people, teach j them the use of choice English, and would tend to develop before the teach er’s eye the tendency of the young [people under their care for this or ■ that avocation, indicated by their choice of reading matter. They should be early trained to note the important concerns of the living world. Broo k-1 haven Leader. MAUFFRAY’S. The Old, Reliable One Price Store, where Quality and Values Count.

To the Citizens of Bay St. Louis and i Hancock Connty: Having purchased the business and | good will of Mr. Otto Sange, jeweler, I deem it prudent to make known to the citizens of Hancock County my object, purposes and qualifications upon enter ing the jewelry and optical business at Bay St, Louis. Firstly, my object is to make a good and honorable citizen of your community and to make Bay St. Louis ray future home, To this end I propose to conduct a modern and up-to-date jewelry and optical establishment; an honest and straightforward business, and to treat all customers as I would desire to be treated; to sell my goods and render my services for reasonable compensation and to see my customers get what they pay for. To assist me in accomplishing my puipose in this respect, I ask your con fidence until you have reason to withhold it, and I solicit your patronage. It is said a “man’s reputation follows him”. If this be so in my case, I shall be satisfied. A word as to my qualifications: Having been in the jewelry business for the past 20 years, I feel competent to take care of all of your requirements in this line. I am a graduate optician, with 11 years practice in optometry, and believe that I am qualified to give you as good service in all matters pertaining to the proper testing and fitting of the eyes with glasses as you will get anywhere, and guarantee all of my optical work to give entire satisfaction. Consult me fully with reference to your eyes, and if your condition indicates the need of a physician’s services, I will cheer fully direct you to one. Should you get a prescription lens broken, it matters not what character of lens it is, or whether you have the original prescrip tion or not (if you only preserve a piece large enough to test), we can duplicate it, or have it specially ground where necessary to do so. If you wear cement bifocals, and they become blurred, I restore them to their original condition | at a nominal charge; fib you with the celebrated invisible Kryptok bifocals, Toric, or any other kind of lenses you desire or require. I bespeak the confidence and patron age given my predecessor, and shall endeavor to deserve the same. J. E. BRIGGS, Jeweler and Optician, Bay St. Louu, Mississippi. WHEN YOUR LIVER GOES WRONG. Nearly Everybody Needs a Liver Stimulant a. One Time or Another. Nearly everybody now and then is annoyed with a sluggish, lazy liver or by constipation or by biliousness. It is for this reason that Dodson’s Liver Tone is such a good medicine to keep in the house. Either children or grown-ups can take Dodson’s Liver Tone without bad after effects and without restriction of habit or diet. It is a vegetable liquid with a pleasant taste, but a reliever of con stipation and liver troubles, and entirely takes the place of calomel. Power Drug store guarantees every bottle of Dodson’s Liver Tone they sell. It costs 50 cents per bottle and if you are not satisfied that it is worth the money, they will hand your half dollar back to you with a smile. Don’t be fooled by preparations I imitating the claims of Dodson’s Liver Tone. Just remember Power Drug store will give you back ybur money if Dod (son’s Liver Tone fails you.

No warrant shall be increased by reason of any depreciation in the market thereof. Sec. 12. That if the tax first levied shall prove insufficient to complete the improvement, the commissioners shall report the amount of deficiency to the board of supervisors, and the latter shall thereupon make another levy on the property previously assessed for a sum sufficient to complete the improvement, which shall be collected in the same manner as the first levy. Provided, that when any work has been begun under the provisions of this act, which shall not be completed and paid for out of the first or other levy, it shall be the duty of the board of supervisors to make such levy for its completion, and from year to year, until it is completed; pro vided that the total levy shall in no case exceed the value of the benefits assessed on said property, and the performance of such duty may be enforced by man damus at the instance of any person or board interested.
