Rooers, General Passenger Agent, Memphis, Tenn. The story that Mr. Mills intend ed offering an entire tariff bill as a substitute for the first one f the tariff bills taken up by the Mouse, has no foundation. Mr. Mills has no idea of doing anything of the kind. He favors each of the bills prepared by the Ways and Means Committee, the only difference of opinion between himself and the majority of the committee being that be would like to see the entire tariff reformed at one time, instead of going at it by piece meals.

Editor Herald Please say to the readers of The Herald: That a com mittee of competent gentlemen will, as soon as their consent can be ob tained, hold a competitive exami nation, to ascertain the best quali fied young gentleman to be recom mended as cadet to U.

Representative Springer, chair man of the Ways and Means com mittee, and Representative Brand, chairman of theUoinage committee, say there was not the slightest foundation for the stories that have been recently toid about these committees antagonizing each other on the floor of the House. Mr. Bland ays that himself and all the rest of the free coinage democrats are just as anxious to see the bills passed putting wool, cotton, ties and bind ing twine on the free list, which Lave been prepared by the Ways and Means committee, as they are to pass the free coinage bill, and that they have never had any in tention of antagonizing any of them.

We are glad to note the interest j felt nd the action taken by the I The chairman appointed the fol oniy agricultural organizaiion in i lowing committee on reoolutions: our midst in behalf of an enterprise of so much importance to the future prosperity of our county. In view of the low price of cotton and the consequent depressed financial con dition of the country, it behooves the farmers and the people gener ally to take into serious consider ation the situation, in which a combination of unfortunate circuni-i stances has placed them, with the view of extricating themselves from the evils which endanger their future welfare. In order to dis courage the growth of cotton and circumscribe its acreage, and to stimulate efforts to enlarge the area devoted to food crops and the raising of horses, mules, cattle, hogs, sheep, poultry, etc., every thing in fact that is nccestary for home consumption that our soil and climate will produce, such an enterprise as that proposed is eminently wise and proper. It will create an interest, and arouse among our farmers a spirit of emu lation that will not only improve our agricultural methods, but will result in establishing a policy the benefits of which will soon be realiz ed in an improved condition of our section. Dots from Herbert. Mr. Editor Notwithstanding the seemingly cull times and the un easiness of the tiller a of the soil, yet we see many improvements being made on th- farms, thus proving that they have not quite yielded to discouragements. Some are getting ready to plant corn. We don't know of any one in this vicinity using commercial fertilizer this year. Mr. Thco. Brabham has moved on the Blackwtll place. Mr, J. F. Hays passed through the neighborhood a few days ago. He seems to be enjoying fine health. The"Tackey" party at Mr. E. C. Lea's a few nights since proved to be very laughable. It was a very difficult matter to decide who was dressed the most tackcy, but tho committee decided in favor of Miss Rubie Hughes and Mr. Willie Butler. The school in this neighborhood is moving on very nicely, the un ruly elements having been put to flight. Our school is small, only numbering thirty-three, but they come regular, which is the success of any school. Well, court soon will have con vened, and we are sorry for the man or boy that is found with a pistol on his person, for it is the duty of the grand jurors to report such cases. Speaking of the hard times for farmers, we are puzzled to know just what the teachers are to do, for the Superintendent of Franklin county writes "There is not a vacant school in the county of Franklin," and not a great many in our own county, with quite a large number of young teachers, somebody will have to go to the field or woods, who will it be? If we could fully realize the benefits of an education, we would be willing to make a sacrifice of money and time, and run our school eight months, in stead of four. Unless. we do this, we will never educate the rising generation. There will bo Sunday School at theDavis school house on the fourth Sunday of this month. Come out and let's teach the children the way of our Savior, and in so doing we obey the injunction of the Scriptures. "Train up a child in the way he should go, aud when he is old he will not depart from it." The committeee to investigate the Pension Office has had a room assigned it in the capitol building, and it will hold daily sittings of several hours until its work is com pleted. Representatives Cooper, of Indiana, and Enloe, of Tennessee, will assume the positions of prose cutors, they being tbouroughly familiar with most of the charges brought agairt&t the bureau.

Editor Herald It is not often that the people of South Missis sippi get so glorious a treat as that which was furnished the citizens of Gloster, a few days ago. We were visited by an aged son of the Afric race, tho features of whom discover ed to us, very palpably, his nativi ty. No sooner had he arrived than ho mounted the Casou-McGehcc stage, fronting Main street, and be gan discoursing on "The negro and his alarming environments, "to wit: the crashing thunder-bolts of ad versity. He spake, I suppose, for about thirty minutes, and his most urging and elaborate suggestion was, "raise corn, potatoes, peas, turkeys chickens ?), and very little cotton." We were more im pressed with his oratory and gener al vehemence than with the gist of his lecture. Large crowds of white people were present, and many were the compliments paid the old freedman. One day of last week a wreck oc curred on the L N. O. &T. R. R., at Melton. No lives were lost, but great damage was done to the boxes and what they contained. It is said that shelled corn was piled up in the "cut" about knee-deep, and that the tire resulting fiom the accident destroyed a car-load of excellent Kentucky whisky. A step-son of the well known Bill Swift, Charley, had both of his legs cut off, the other day, by a freight train. We know nothing of the particulars of this accident. Charley is now in the Vicksburg hospital. We are pleased to say that Dr. II. N. Street is now a citizen of Gloster. He will probably remain with. us for a long time, as he is a partner of Dr. W. J. Lamkin and seems to "know his road" and to get practice. Mrs. Mary McGehee and Misses Myra Brown and Eunice Ratclifi are enjoying themselves in the Crescent city, this week. Mr. R. C. Landsdale had an aching tooth, and, the other day, he jerked it out and threw it away. Willie. Democratic absentees are giving the leaders of the House a great deal of trouble, and now that the serious business of the session is getting before the House the con linuation of this practice will prove very embarrassing, as it enables the republicans to lie the House up at any time by refusing to vote, thus breaking a quorum,-as was done recently.

Encourage them j it was not in the paper I presume to attend the Sabbath School and lit was lost, or received too late for church and singing, for these have a tendency to overcome the many wicked devices that surround the pathway of every boy and young man in this bright and sunny land of ours.

The friends of our brothers should be our friends, their engagements should be our; various innocent amuse ments should be provided for them in the family circle. We know of no more agreeable and interesting spcctaclo than that of brothers and sisters playing and singing together elevated compositions in music which gratify the taste and purify the heart while their fond parents sit delighted by. Many men who have passed unharmed through temptations of youth owed their escape from many dangers to the intimate companionship of pure minded sisters. They have been saved from hazardous meetings with idle companions by some home engagements, of which sisters were the charm. They have refrained from mixing with impure, because they would not bring home thought and feelings which they could not share with those trusting and loving friends, they have put asido the wine cup and abstained from strong temptations. Let us use every in fluence in our power to have our brothers become sober young men. Let's try to impress upon them their duty to God and man. And now, lady friends, and especially those who have brothers, I plead with you earnestly, to talk with your brothers, tell them how you love them, and tell them that you are very much interested in their welfare, ask them to keep away from the "saloon," and not only that, but ask them to touch not, handle not, ta'ste not the unclean. Tell them how it grieves their parents, to see and to hear of their bad conduct. Trusting that we will all do more in the future towards checking the course and conduct of the rising generation, than we have in the past, I will say adieu."

Referring again to the fire, dear reader, imagine you see a large four-story building on fire with the flames leaping a hundred feet above, with six hundred and twenty-one insane persons inside, who are not conscious of any danger, then you have but a faint idea of the grave responsibility resting on the Super- inlendcnt. But with his assistants they were all removed to other buildings, except the man who is supposed to have set the building on fire he was burned, and taken out of the debris late in the after noon. Two of tli o inmates got outside, but have been brought back. The legislature has appropriated twenty-five thousand dollars to meet present emergencies. About eighty of the inmates have been sent to the asylum at Meridian, the others can be provided for here. Nearly all of the furniture was lost by being thrown from the windows to the ground. A committee has been appointed to ascertain the amount of damages, aud they re port that it will take one hundred and fifty thousand dollars ($150,000) to rebuild and furnish as before. An amusing thing is said to have occurred at the asylum. Mr. Miller, a member of thellouse, fromCopiah , was talking very loud and gesticu lating wildly, and some of the ladies, thinking he was a lunatic, requested some of the managers, to nave mm conuneo, iesi ne inigui hurt sonio one. Imagine their sur prise when Miller informed them he was a legislator. Oh my, they nearly fainted. Another joke on the legislature. When Cleveland was invited to visit and address the legislature, he replied, that he could stand the bull frogs and alligators of Louisiana but he could not stand the Missis sippi Legislature. Hence, you sen, we are for Hill At President Whoopee for the Legislature of Mississippi, and David B. Hill of I New York. Jackson, Miss., Feb. 22,'92. Editorllerald As theLegislature is doing all that is possible for it to do, by way of relieving the oppress ed and tax burdened people of Amite, by reducing expenses and cutting down appropriations, there is also a duty for them to perform. Let every farmer in Amite plant so as to mako an abundance of corn, peas, potatoes, molasses, meat and such other things as will make the farm self-sustaining. The Cotton Growers Association held a meeting in thellall of Repre sentatives last Tuesday evening, and, after considerable discussion, it was agreed to reduce the acreage in cotton one-third this year, and we earnestly insist on every farmer of Mississippi to join in this grand movement in trying to restore our State back to its former prosperity by way of encouragement to the Farmers' Alliance. I would say that its influence is being felt from the Atlantic to the Pacific, and from the Rocky mountains to the Gulf of Mexico.

Respectfully, W. II. Gbiffis. The Custom of Sharing;. Vicksburg Herald: The earliest reference to shaving of the beard is found in Genesis, chapter XLI, verse 14, where we read thatJoseph, on being summoned before the king, shaved himself. There are several directions as to shaving in where shaving was practiced; in all other countries at that time such an act would have been considered ignominious. Herodotus mentions that the hgyptians allowed their ! liojptl in rrmw wlipn ihev wrre in to grow when they were in mourning. So particular were they as to shaving at all other times that to have neglected it was to make one's self the butt of coarse and ridiculous jokes. Even in this ! I day and age, when the Egyptian i uj.mt. t, r.invrv (ho iiloj nf a man of low condition and slovenly habits, they always picture to you a man with a full beard. This notion is very ancient, a fact attested by works of art found in burial mouu- ments years. dating back thousands of It is believed that there was even a time when every ortho dox Egyptian run the shaving tool over his face, scalp and eyebrows at least once in every forty-eight hours. Unlike the Romans of a later age the Egyptians did not confine the privilege of shaving to free citizens, butobliged their slaves to sliavo both face and head. The data are not exactly as authentic as one would like, to have, but it is believed that the custom of shaving i he beard was introduced at Rome in the year 300 B. C. According to Pliny, Scipio Afiicanus was the first Roman who shaved daily. In France the custom of shaving came ; in withLouis XI 1 1., who was young and beardless. Tho Anglo-Saxons wore their beards until the time of the conquest, when they were com pelled to follow the example of the smooth-faced Normans. From the time of Edward III. to that of Charles I. beards were universally worn. In the reign of Charles II. the mustache and side whiskers only were worn. Soon after this the practice of shaving in some fashion became general throughout Europe. Representative Ravncr. of Marv- ,andt last Keck dclivercd one of the strongest speeches against trusts i ever heard on the iloor of thelloase. He reminded the republicans that neither the Interstate Commerce law nor the Sherman act, passed at the last session of Congress, had prevented tho continued formation of the trustsand combinations which it was their alleged purpose to eradicate; that trusts still blossom ed and flourished as they accumu late in every commercial centre; that they still defied the law and the jurisdiction and mandates of the courts, and that they still, with arrogant front and bold pretensions, executed their purposes without the slightest fear of in dieted punish ment or the slightest concern about any encroachment upon their pre rogative. They are so powerful and influential that the legislatures of the States seem to tremble at their presence, and the Congress of the United States had stood by with folded hands and permitted them, with an iron heel, to trample upon the rights of the people.
