Fortunately, the fire was discovered in time to be put out before damage was done. Cities and towns everywhere are beginning a crusade on the care less use of fireworks, realizing the dangers incident thereto. Almost every town in the state past some restrictive laws .governing their use, but all find more or less dif- j ficulty in enforcing such laws. It j is only a matter of time when rigid ! measures will have to be adopted, Items From Port Gibson Female College.

Christmas- service was held in St. James' Church on Christmas day at 11 a.m. The Church look ed very beautiful in its decorations of bamboo and holly. The music was of a very high order. But the fact that the Knights Templar had been commanded to celebrate the anniversary of Christ's birth at St. James' Church, made this service one of more than usual in j terest. Not only did the Knights Templar obey the command, but many Mason of other degrees came to offer adoration to the "Babe of the Church was tax n Bethleham, ed to accommodate the crowd of worshipers. Mr. Jones bade his brother Masons welcome in a few well chosen words: Commending to all the homely Masonic virtures, of honesty, patience, charity, etc. The Christmas sermon was one of rare beauty and grandure set ting forth, as it did, how God, in His infinite wisdom had prepared all things for the coming of the Prince of Peace. A very large number communed, among them were "not a few from our Christian friends of other denominations. The offering— which on Christmas day is always devoted to the fund for the relief of disabled clergy—was $18.62: The largest ever made for that fund in this church before. After the blessing, as the congregation dispersed to their homes, I am sure that each and all experienced some of the peace and joy and happiness felt by those who heard the first Gloria in Excelsis'' when the Galilean shepherds caught the chorus of the angelic choir singing Glory to God in the highest, peace on earth, good will to men. 99 < ( I 9 ( < << 9 » X.

We ask the pardon on the follow ing grounds, to-wit : Because said Wash Dorsey is half witted and unaccountable, and having no counsel, put in no defense when tried, though the defense of insan ity was available. Said Lizzie Hampton was con victed on the unsupported state ment of said W T ash Dorsey, who confessed the burning, and she had no counsel, and was at the time of her trial, physically unable to go to trial, having at the time a young baby 5 months old, and being in bad health, friendless and with no witnesses or aid or advisers, being tried within a few days after the finding of the indictment. Respectfully, W. G. Brown, E. O. Regan, C. M. Whittaker, and many others. This is to certify that the co partnership between J. McC. Mar tin and J. F. Frierson, composing the firm of Martin & Frierson, At torneys at-Law, by mutual agree ment is hereby dissolved. Witness onr signatures this 14th day of December, A. D. 1908. J. McC. MARTIN, JOHN F.
