The protracted cool weather has given the gardens a serious back-set. Read the church directory, and keep posted al»out religions service*. A few spring chickens have been bronglit in, but they were still iu the shell. The Board of Supervisors hold a regular meeting at the Court House next Monday. The rain and wind combined made last Sat inlay one of the most disagreeable days of the season. There are twenty-seven saw mills in Lin coln county; iu other words, the county is doing a lumbering business. Last Saturday Slierilf Mikell paid $.'>.00 for a box of last year's almanacs. He did it at Tom Perkins’ express sale. Our friends would confer a favor by giv ing us names of persons visiting or leaving here. We want to keep np the personal column. As we go to press, Mr. Tlios. Cuming, Sr., an aged and beloved citizen of this place, is extremely ill and his recovery almost despaired of. Rev. J. A. B. Jones, Presiding Elder, will hold quarterly meeting at the Metho dist ehnroh in this place next Saturday and Sunday. A full attendance is desired, especially of the members. The Easter services at the Catholic church last Sunday were solemn and imer est iug. Father Bekkers, considering .his short residence iu this country, speaks English with rouiarkable fluency. Quite a number of the solid farmers of Lawrence, Lincoln and Franklin have been in town within the past week. They report farm work progressing well, but the cohl weather keeps back vegetation. By refereuee to the proceedings of the Teacher's Convention held here last Sat urday, it will be seen that a grammar, of which Dr. H. F. Johnson is the author,lias been adopted as a county text book. It is said to l»e a work of rare merit. Mr. L. C. Matthews has been awarded the sub-contract for carrying the mails from Brookliavcn to Meadville and all in termediate points. It has fallen into good hands, and our friends along the route may now rest assured of receiving their mails regularly. Killer J. R. Farisli, of this place has just received au urgent invitation, signed by several citizens of Magnolia, to go down and deliver a temperance lecture in that town at an early day. He says he will en deavor to respond. He is a whole team on that subject, and has done the temper ance cause an immense amount of good in the past. We must not fail to mention again and recommend to the public Mr. Day, the photographer at this place. We believe he will give satisfaction in every branch of his business; but particularly in that which embraces the difficult art of taking infants’ pictures. He cannot be excelled in this class of work, as we have occasion to know. Call early, and if you take the “Baby,” you will be all tho more delight ed with the result of your visit. We notice that small-pox is in Hinds, Rankin,Pike, Holmes and other sections of Mississippi, and tho Times-Dcniocrat is authority for saying that it ia in all the districts of New Orleans and on the in crease. In view of this situation of things we hope those having in hand the sanitary condition of Brookhavcu will at once take steps as to insure the city against such a loathsome contagion. We do not write this for the purpose of creating any un necessary alarm, but because there seems ample ground for such precautions. We learn that there are a lot of loafing rnust-abouts who hang about the depot platform every uight, and when the pas senger trains stop here, jump on the cars anil run through them, picking up all the stray hats, valises, etc., which they can grab with impunity, and then making off with their booty. We have been request ed to give these parties—-whether they be white or black—fair warning, as somebody will get into serious trouble if the practice is longer continued. It would be well for those who have no business ou the trains to keep off of them, any way, and then they will be out of the way of those who do have business, and not lay themaelvee liable to suspicion. Among tho uncalled for express packa ges sold here last Saturday was one which bad been forwarded from Canton and I which was originally addressed to Emmett L. Corn, of that place. It was Uiught by Mr. R. D. Patrick for H5 rents, ami on ita being opened he found it to eontain a com plete outfit for the organization of a lodge of the Knights of the Golden linle, em bracing Mb suits of regalia, a hue sword, ni.ixke, gavel, ballot-box, roll-book, con stitution, by-laws, etc.—the whole worth aUmt $76 <* f 100. Mr. P. baa written to the headquarters of the Order statiitg the e uiteT.tr of the package aud how it came into hU poaeasion, and he will no doubt soon receive «u order for its retnrn, and a handsome profit on bis investment. Prom the Pulton (Ky.) Index we clip the following notice of an important occasion still fresh in the minds of all our city ren ders: “Dr. 0. M. Sebastian of Martin, Teiin., was married on the 8th iust., at the M. E. church at Brookhaven, Miss., to Miss Jevde Warren, of that city. Messrs. I . G. McMillian and G. 0. Plummer, of Mar tin, accompanied lrtm on his bridal tonr and report a splendid trip. The doctor is one of the bright lights of West Tcuuessso in the medical profession,and our acquain tance with him warrants tlie belief that his fair bride is all that Is lovable in gentle woman, since no other kind would have ever captivated the handsome and intelli gent M. I>. May they live a long time aud always lie happy is our earnest wish." I*r. T. UeWill Tillmge 'I his distinguished and renowned gentle man ami minister, who has lieeu lecturing of lute iu New Orleans and other Southern cities, having missed spuie of his regular appointments on account of railroad acci dents and delays, and in consequence hav ing a little extra time on his hands, will spend next Sunday in Brookhaven. At 11 o'clock A. m., at tho Presbyterian Church he will preach ids great sermon on tho subject, “The Hand Writing upon the Wall.” Everybody is cordially invited to hear this sermon, and every body should hear it, as it will probably be the only oppor tunity ever offered of listening to the unique, eloquent and sublime oratory of the gTeat Brooklyn Tabernacle preacher. During his visit, Dr. Talmage will be the goc.et of Dr. Johnson. lie takes a deep interest iu the- subject of education in the South, and he is particularly anxious to see as much as possible of Whitworth, whose reputation has long since gone abroad as one of the great educational in stitutions of our Southland. In announcing that ho will stop here, Dr. T. also iinforms iis that he will proba bly leave here on the afternoon train for Jackson, and favor the people of that i4ty with a sermon Sunday night. - ———■ • • --- . n Cattle Ntealiag. A considerable crowd assembled in Jus tice Baggett's office Monday afternoon to witness tho preliminary trial of William Lewis, a youth of about 16 years, who had been arrested Sunday morning on tho charge of stealing a fine yearling belong ing to Win. Absliagen, and afterward sell ing the liide^o Frank Hartman. After a somewhat lengthy examination of witnes ses, W. R. Spencer, Esq., made a brief ar gument for the defendant, and District Attorney Cassedy one for tho State, and the case was submitted. Justice Baggett, not regarding the testimony adduced by Lewis as sufficient to establish his inno cence, bound him over under a $&>0 bond to appear at the next term of the Circuit Court. He has not given bond, bnt says he will yet establish his innocence. He is young to liegiu such a life, ami we hope he will, though circumstances at present seem against him. In this connection, wo will say that cn' tle-stealing has grown entirely too com mon in this vicinity, and there is a very strong disposition on the part of stock owners to make an end of it. Uatict «f Itund Overseers aa< Hands. The maintenance of good public roAds is a matter in which every one in the county is materially interested; and as every one is not posted as to the requirements of the State law on the Hiibjeet, and there are but few of those whose duty it is too keep up the public roads to whom a copy of the law is readily accessible, we present the legal requirement# to our readers on the 2nd page of to-day’s paper. The newly ap pointed road overseers should post them selves carefully and file the paper away for luture reference. A great deal of tronble may l>e avoided sometimes by knowing just exactly what caD, and what cannot, lie done under the law; and father, we be lieve if the statute is faithfully enforced, there will be a very marked improvement this year in the condition of all .the public roads of the county. Judge J. It. Chrlsmaa. — The Southern Herald paid Judge C’hria man the following well merited compli ment during the recent term of conrt in Auiite. We doubt if there is a Judge in the State at once more respected, honored and loved by the people of his district, and at the same time more dreaded by law breakers, than is Judge Chrisaian: Hon. J. 11. Chrisiuau who is now holding a term of the Circuit Court at this place, presides with his usual ability and digni ty. In him are • united the‘element# of judgment, justice and mercy. By his strict impartiality and the nice sense of justice he has completely won the confi dence of the masses, and we do no more than voice the sentiment of the people when we declare him the right mail in the right place. May he live loug, and suc ceed himself in the office be so worthily fills. ! ClrcnltCenrt In Franklin. Judge Chrisman was confined to bis bed most of last week, tromau attack of fever, aud hadn’t sufficiently recovered l>y last Monday to make it safe for him to fill his regular appointment in Frauklin. How ever, he hoj>ee to bo fully at himself by next Monday, April 2nd, when be will take up and g<j through with the Frauklin docket in his usual impartial and business like style. Our Franklin county readers will take notice accordingly. .Sleepless nights, made miserable by that terrible congli. Shiloh's curs is the reme dy for you. PCRSONAL. ('apt. J. H.

Hu is an agreeable gen tleman, and we felt the batter after meet ing him. “John,” onr spicy Bognechitto reporter, hasn't been heard front this week. Wa prosnine he is either doivu with the small pox, or else, in his earnest zeal to obtain locals, lias been brained by some cross grained muggins front whom be was trying to extort the skeleton of a news item.

Johnson in regard to the improvements he is contemplating at the College, so he informed us, and will soon furnish the Doctor with plans, specifications, etc., for the erection of another wing to this already commodious Institution. Swan is the man to make a handsome job of it. We can point to numerous examples in Jack sou of bis excellent skill in architecture. -— ; Preceedlag* of the Teacher's CoBTealios. Iu pursuance of a call by the County Supurinteudsut of Education of Lincoln j county, a oonvention of teachorH asaeui 1 hied at the Court House in Brookhaveu on ! Saturday last, to take into consideration the question of adopting a uniform series of Text Books in the public schools of the county. On motion, Supt. W. R. Spencer was called to the chair, and Dr. J. M. Grafton appointed Secretary. Considering the inclement weather, the mectiug was well attended. After appre priate discussion, the following list of | books was adopted as the standard for the county schools: Sjiellers—Webster’s; Harvey’s spellers, supplementary. Readers—McGuffey’s; Swinton'a, supple mentary. Mathematics—Davie’s series. Geography—Moutcith's Elementary and Comprehensive. Grammar's—Elements of English Gram mar, by II. F. Johnson; Harvey’s Gram mar, supplementary. History—Barues’ Brief History. Scieuces—Steele’s Fourteen Weeks in Sciences.

Magnolia, March 27th, 1883. Business is very dull all over tlio couuty. Candidates are getting too numerous to mention. There will be about six for Sheritf,tive for Representative, aud four for Treasurer, and there is no telling how many for Clerks, for the Board of Super visors, Justices of the Peace, etc. Mr. Battaile, of the Times and Intelli gencer, seems very anxious about candi dates anuouucing themselves. Won’t some considerate office-seeker announce himself, and relieve Mr. Battaile's anxiety! Taxes are bciug collected as rapidly as possible. Tax-payers are given until the 15th of April, before the damage will be added. Laud will be sold inJuue. Work on the new Court House will com mence about April 1st. Some are in favor of moving it to Summit or McCoiub City, but it seems to be a permanent feature at Magnolia. It would be very poor policy to move it, when the couuty owns a #5,000 jail, and as pretty a building aite iu Mag uolia as there ia anywhere in the State. It seems as if the people of the 4th District are determined to hold the throttle-valve of the engine of our county government sooner or later. The bridges of the county are generally in a very bad condition, and the county tax for 1882 and 1883, when collected, will be just about enough to pay the outstand ing debt. The post office at Osyka was robbed a few days since, by unknowu parties. Not only this, but several mean things were doue around the town. Small-pox is reported at McComb, but it has been contradicted by some of the phy sicians there. Building ia on the "boom.” Wedding bells are rumored in that place.
