Summit, Nov. 20.—This morn ing about 2 o’clock John T. Lilly, a merchant of this place, was awakened by some one rummaging in the closet in his room where was kept his baby’s bank and the silverware. He demanded to know who was there, and a man, he could not distinguish whether he was white or black, ran out of the closet and on to the sidewalk, where the electric light made him plainly discernible, Mr. Lilly fired at him with his pistol and has reason to believe he hit him, as blood spots were found on the pavement. This morning he found the baby’s bank, which con tained $12, burst open and with the silverware under a foot bridge, where the burglar had thrown them in bis hasty flight. The money was intact. Mrs. Lil ly, who saw the form of the bur glar more plainly than her hus band, is inclined to believe it was a white man. He made good his escape and no trace has so far been found of him, although dili gent search has been instituted. Eugene Williams, an employee of the Cumberland Telephone Company, residing here and who was shot at Kuddock, La., Satur day night, when negroes there ■killed the foreman, W. J. Wall, reached here last night, and is pretty badly wounded. He is shot three or four times in the arm and neck, and his face is bad ly bruised by the rough handling he received. He says the negroes were drunk and bene on murder ing every one they ran across. He is thankful he escaped with his life. College Endowments. Dr. W. T. Lowrey, president of Mississippi College, states that during the past few weeks he has raised $11,000 on the additional endowment fund of $75,000 which the Baptists of Mississippi pro pose to give to the institution. President Lowry is well satis fied with the early results of his canvass. During the summer and early fall he was unable to make the expected tour of the State on account of quarantines, but he will keep' actively in the field throughout the winter and spring months. If the* church raises the requir ed $75,000 for the college the gen eral board of education will give an additional $25,000, making an increased endowment of $100,000. Immediately after his return from the Inter-Church conference in New Yoru, President W. B. Murrah, of Millsaps College, will take the field in behalf of the movement to raise an additional $100,000 for endowment for that institution. About $35,000 of the required sum has already been pledged.—Jackson Evening News. Let the Voters Decide. It bas been said that next year the United States senatorship will overshadow all else in politics in Illinois. And there are a whole lot of fellows who are hoping that this will be so and that they can foist their schemes to capture the county and district offices while directing the attention of the “peepul” to the senatorial strug gle. But the voters should see to it that every man who comes up for county or legislative office is clean, capable and honest, and then demand that they be given opportunity to nominate the men of their choice by a direct vote in a direct primary. While they are doing this they will indicate in no uncertain tones whom they desire for senator.—Earlville Leader. The above from our Illinois namesake is splendid counsel for the voters of Mississippi as well as of Illinois. For Sale.

The procession was half a mile long and 300 Woodmen were in the line. After the usual form of ceremony at the grave the veil was lifted from the beautiful tomb, when Hon. W. B.
