Would that every social leader
could be controlled by such a
wholesome fear of injuring her

afraid to do that which may result
in Injury to another.
A conscientious fear on the part

Major Martin, the retiring pres

attorneys, is arguing before the
Hinds county chancery court to
day the suit of S. Bernheimer &

knowledged the assignment and
agreed to make payments to them,
and did make two payments.
Mr. Martin recently went to

There are peculiar incidents
connected with this case. Since
its filing in 1905. seven of the
litigants have died. Trial was
begun on one occasion and the
chancellor became ill and bad to
adjourn court. On another oc
casion one of the attorneys was ill
and the case was again postponed.
At another time the suit was can
celled by an attorney without au
thority. It was afterwards rein
stated and is now being tried,
after eleven years of delay.

AS the whole world gone stark mad over a very foolish and trivial
question? Are swords rattling, cannon rumbling, mailed armour
glistening just because Russia wanted to show her love for the little
brother—Servia ? Tear aside the curtain of Europe's politics and see the
grim and sinister game of chess that is being played. See upon what a slim,
yet desperate, excuse the sacred lives of millions are being sacrificed. Read the
history of the past one hundred years, as written by some of the greatest
authorities the world has ever known, and learn the naked, shameful truth.
