Supreme Court Decisions.
Monday the supreme court af
firmed the case of Ruby F. Ray
vs. E. W. Harring. This suit in
volved about 500 acres of land
near Humphreys, this county.
Mrs. Amelia A. McLain, the
original owner of the property in
•question, at her death willed it to
her sister, Mrs. E. J. Rundeil,
who sold the property to her
son, E. W. Harring. After Mrs.
Rundell's death, Mrs. Ruby F.
Ray and Mrs. Hutchins, grand
children of Mrs. Rundeil, sued
Harring for a half interest in the
place, claiming that the will vest
ed only a life estate. The su
preme court affirmed the decision
of Chancellor Hicks, holding that
the will vested an estate in fee sim
ple, and that the property belongs
to Harring. Attorney H.
Mounger of Port Gibson represent
ed Harring.
Another case was that of Mrs.
Fannie M. Dennis et al vs Mrs. An
nie A. Murdoch, Mrs. Murdoch's
husband, W. B. Murdoch, former
ly a prosperous merchant and plan
ter of Westside, this county, left
his entire estate of considerable
value to his wife, to use as she
saw fit. If, however, at her death
there should remain anything, said
remnant was to be divided be
tween his other relatives. Mrs.
Dennis and other relatives of the
deceased, claiming that the prop
erty was being wasted by the ben
eficiary of the will, asked the
court to appoint a guardian.
Chancellor Hicks denied the pe
tition on the ground that the will
did not limit the beneficiary in her
expenditures. This decision was
sustained by the supreme court.
Martin & Frierson of Port Gib
son represented Mrs. Dennis, and
W. M. Williamson represented
Mrs. Murdoch.

Mr. William E, Parker.
The death of Mr. William E.
Parker last Saturday night, re
moves from Port Gibson one of its
most familiar figures. A native of
this place, he always took great
interest in everything connected
with the town. Years ago he was
a man of means,
money was invested in the Grand
Gulf & Port Gibson railroad which
was operated until bought by the
Y. & M. V. road about 1880. Dur
ing the war between the states the
running of trains on the road was
discontinued ; and at the close
of the war the citizenship of Port
Gibson was too disheartened and
depressed to attempt to re-estab
lish their shattered enterprises.
However, Mr. Parker, as president
of the company, succeeded in re
organizing the railroad and it was
successfully operated for about
fifteen years longer.
Mr. Parker was a devoted and
loyal friend, and, until confined to
his home a few years ago by failing
health, he was down town daily
with friends gathered around his
buggy discussing the issues of the
day on which he was well posted.
Much of his
Colored School Closing.
Port Gibson colored school No.
i had quite a successful closing on
Wednesday, the 3rd, at the First
Baptist church. There were three
graduates, Arthur Seniel, Clar
ence Moore and Orestes Johnson
Each of them acquitted himself
well in the essay read. The essays
are said to be among the best ever
delivered by graduates of the
school, and equal to any similar
school of the state. .The exercises
reflected credit on the trainers of
the pupils.
Rev. M. R. Dixon delivered the
annual address.
A large crowd was present,
mong which were several whites.
The order was exceptionably good,
and the music showed talent an^
training.

Thu Peculiar Trait of a Peasant Show*
In u Cap of Tea.
Coming in tired from a long walk, I
went to my room to lie down, says a
writer in Harper's Lauir, and on my
way left a message for Mary: "TeÜ
Mary to make me a cup of tea—strong
and bring it upstairs."
In the course of time there appeared
at my door Mary's round, srailing face,
surrounded by ifc» ctnvy kinks of hair,
that, in turn, \
green and gold rcu t d butterfly which

VALUE OF EVEN TEETH.
Public Speaking Interfered with by Irreg
ular Molars—Dentistry's Progress.
Speaking 1 with distinctness and com
fort depends much upon a full and even
set of teeth. If they are crowded and
irregular, or if there is now and then
one missing, it affects the voice at once
and is very annoying to others who are
obliged to listen to it. Publie speakers
often fail to produce the effect they de
sire upon their hearers iv ,m this cause
and are not conscious of i i, themselves.
Nothing contributes ta re > > the beauty
of the features than a perfect, regular,
clean set of teeth, while a neglected,
diseased mouth disgusts every beholder.
Such things are noticed nowadays much
more than formerly and good teeth and
a sweet breath are considered indis
pensable to every lady and gentleman.
Filling the teeth is the only means of
preserving them when decay com
mences. The science of dentistry is
now so far advanced that the skillful
operator can save and restore the teeth
even where they have been badly de
cayed and abcessed. Some wonderful
cases have been presented m the last
fsw years of teeth seemingly beyond
Vie hope of saving, where the science
*nd skill of modern dentistry has re
stored them agaik vu ^oefulness, much
to the joy and surprise of the patients.
Fifty years ago the great study of the
dentist was how to. make artificial
teeth; now, acoording to the Domestic
Monthly, all the resources of science
and art are brought to bear, and the
whole foree of dental education at the
present day is centering upon, the one
great work of saving the natural teeth.
Thinke It Saved His Life.
Lester M. Nelson, of Naples Maine, says
in a recent letter: "I have used Dr. King's
New, Discovery many years,, for coughs and
colds, and I think it saved my life. I have
found it a reliable remedy for throat and
lung complaints, and would no more be
without a bottle than I would be without
food. ' ' For nearly forty years New Discov
ery has stood at the head of throat and lung
remedies. As a preventive of pneumonia,
and healer of weak lungs it has no equal.

RIDING A CROCODILE.
It Is a Very Lively Experience, TbOOgfe
Hardly a Vfç isaat One.
A cayman from a neighboring lagoon
had occasionally poached among our
ducks, says the engineer of an estate in
India, us r porte 1 in "Tales of Travel,
and we ha<l been for some days on the
lookout for him. One morning we dis
covered him lounging in one of the
ponds after a night's plunder.
I ran for my gun and fired at him.
The shot merely stirred the old rogue
up; he thrashed about in the water for
a minute, and then left the pond and
started for the morass.
I tried to get aim at his head, but was
unable to do so. At this moment David,
an African wainman, came up, and be
fore I realized his purpose, he had
thrown himself astride the crocodile,
grabbed his fore paws and held them
doubled up across the creature's back.
The beast was immediately thrown
upon his snout; and though able to
move his feet freely and slap his tail
about, he could not bulge half a yard,
his power being altogether spent in a
fruitless endeavor to . grub himself on
ward. He was obliged to move in a
circle, and of course was pretty nearly
confined to one spot.
The African kept his seat. He re*
ceived some hard jerks, but as his seat
was across the reptile's shoulders, ho
was well out of danger from jaws and
tail so long as he held on.
"Shoot 'im! Me got 'im!" the fellow
called to me.
t I reloaded my gun, and getting good
aim at the crocodile's head, soon put an
end to his mischief. The old fellow
pleasured fifteen feet.
. À QUEER RA'lLfcOAD.
Bun by Three Mon und with Occasional
Grades of Six Feet to the One Hundred.
A curious little railroad train goes
crawling up and down the mountain
from Très Pinos to Hurt's lime kiln in
the Gavilan range, San Benito county,
Cal., every day. It is probably the
■trangest railroad that was ever seen;
yet, until the Helena Independent no
ticed it, not a word was ever printed re
garding it. The train moves on a
curious single track and is drawn by
an engine set low on it. Both the engine
wheels and those which support the
cars have a single, pivot-like piece of
steel which sets in the slot track, for
it must be borne in mind that the track
has a slot in it not unlike that seen on
a cable track. In addition to this each
wheel has a flange on each side of it,
bo that it cannot get off the track, no
matter how abrupt the curves. The
road as completed is now nine miles
tong, but when pushed through as in
tended it will be fourteen miles in
length. Three men run it. These con
sist of an engineer, fireman and a
brakeman. In one place there is an
eight-hundred-foot grade mounted at
the rate of six feet to the one hundred,
yet the engine puffs right along with
Vhree loaded cars, not in the least both
ered in any way. There is one grade a
quarter of a mile long in which an aver
age of four feet is gained to the one
hundred. One curious thing about it is
that the wheels are in a sense rollers.
They reach from one side to the other.
The flanges hold them on, assisted by
the pivot, past which each half of the
wheel comes down.
