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.

foundation for the stories that have

as anxious to see the bills passed
putting wool, cotton, ties and bind

Lave been prepared by the Ways

to pass the free coinage bill, and
that they have never had any in

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

our agricultural methods, but will
result in establishing a policy the
benefits of which will soon be realiz

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
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.

We are pleased to say that Dr.
II. N. Street is now a citizen of

seems to "know his road" and to
get practice.

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.

So many temptations beset young
men of this present age. 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

prise when Miller informed them
he was a legislator. Oh my, they
nearly fainted.
Another joke on the legislature.

visit and address the legislature, he
replied, that he could stand the
bull frogs and alligators of Louisiana

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 !
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-
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
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.
