Bath-Tub Made of Marble.
A massive bath-tub, hewn from
solid marble, interests visitors to
the plantation of Mrs. Florence C*
Martin, cousin of John H. Cham
bliss, of the Natchez Drug Com
pany, this city, in Claiborne and
Jefferson counties.
Whether the man who carved
this marvelous tub with infinite pa
tience and care had in mind the
story of Poppeia, Nero's slave, who
performed her morning abulitions
in the fresh milk of an ass, none
will ever know. Nero's slave be
came Nero's queen because she was
a beautiful woman, but history
does not state whether the milk
had the desired effect.
Old Jim" Crane, as
Doubtless
he called himself, the man who
carved the bath-tub from solid
« i
I marble, an eccentric, honest, Mis

emulate the example of Rome's
emperor. He, doubtless, was not

after beauty, but was planning con
venience, although some think that
the tub was not made for bathing
purposes, but for a mausoleum for
the planter. That it was hewn for
more practical purposes, however,
is generally believed, the entire de
sign indicating that it was to be
used for bathing. The bath tub is
about seven feet long by four feet
wide. The bath-tub is probably
more than ioo years old.
Mr. Crane was well-known to
the citizens of Natchez in the early
part of the nineteenth century, as
he came tolhis city many times to
do his trading. A story is told of
him that when he came to Natchez
he always announced the event by
a crier, who informed the citizens
of the city in a loud voice that
Old Jim Crane is in town.
The white marble bath-tub is of
considerable value and, as its own
er desires to dispose of it, it will
doubtless bring a good price.—

Notice—Boys of Claiborne and
Jefferson.
If as many as ten boys from
these two counties will go together,
we can arrange a boarding place in
Port Gibson at reduced rate, and
our school will make a rate that
will be attractive for tuition.
In this way boys can go to school
cheaper here at home than else
where. I will accept applications
at once.
Our enrollment to date fills the
building, and if we get any more
we will have to make some other
arragement.
Chamberlain-Hunt Academy has
a most efficient teaching force and
the best of equipment. This is a
chance for some home boys if they
want it.

Pres. Chamberlain-Hunt Academy.

Bilbo Bllborlng.
Bilbo bad a bill-board;
Bilbo also had a board-bill.
The board-bill bored Bilbo so
That Bilbo 3old the bill-board
To pay his board-bill.
So after Bilbo sold his bill-board
To pay his boarçl-bill,
The board-bill no longer bored
Bilbo,
Then Bilbo Bilbored Dulaney.
RET.
The above gem was sent the
Reveille by one of its country
friends.
While meditating upon
its great literary merit, kind read
er, do not forget that the proceeds
from the sale of the bill-board were
a
not sufficient to pay the claim of
the Poplarville Bank also.
Be sure and take a bottle of Chamber
lain's Colic, Cholera and Diarrhoea Reme
dy with yon when starting on your trip
this summer. It cannot be obtained on
board the trains or steamers. Changes of
water and climate often cause sudden at
tacks of diarrhoea, and it is best to be pre
pared. Sold by all dealers
