VOL. VII. NO. 45. COLUMBUS, MISS., TUESDAY MORNING, AUGUST 12, 1902. Sl.OO A YEAR EDITION. nn COLUMBUS i ' i Makes the food more delicious and wholesome OVl GAKmG POWOFK CO.. HEW VOBK. The automobile octopus has co lansed. The beef trust auto do the same things. The citv council is doiner the proper thing in taking step.? to have the side walks repaired. It seems that it costs more monov to keev un the cito water V A. works than it does to maintain a a yacht. The man who originated the phrase declaring that soap and water are cheap, had evidently had no experience in operating a water plant. Weather like this attorns a splendid opportunity for wicked people to shuffle off this mortal coil. The change of temperature would, just now, hardly be no ticeable. The mandamus proceedings brought bv the trustees of the Industrial Institute and College to compel auditor Cole to pay the interest claimed to be due on the college land grant were before Judge Powell at Jackson Mon day and Tuesday. A decision in the matter was expected yesterday. The Demecratic Executive Committee of the First Congress ional district met at Tupelo last Saturday and fixed upon Thurs day, August 21st as the date on which to hold a primaroy to nominate a candidate for the fifty eighth congress, andupon Thurs day, September 11th as the date of the holding of the second pri mary, should one be necessary. It is hardly likely, however, that a second primary will be held, as Hon. E. S. Candler is the only candidate in the field. The people of Aberdeen seem to have connected with a stum bling block in the launching of their scheme to build a cotton mill. It seems that Mr. Stokes, the secretary of the company, who, by the way, is not an Aber deen man, wanted the full power to select the site for the mill and purchase all machinery for the same delegated to him. The oth er stockholders couldn't see it that way, and Mr. Stokes, who had agreed to put eighty-five thousand dollars into the enter prise, proceeded to withdraw his subscription. The Aberdeen peo ple say, however, that the mill will be built, even though it be comes necessary to borrow money by giving a mortgage on the plant. QUARTERLY CONFERENCE.

Abe Edwards, one of the prision er at the county farm who for some time has been known as "trusty and who has enjoyed all the liberties and privileges unusually accorded this class o: prisoners, has proven faithless to the "trust" which was imposed in him and Manager Salter is now "trusting" to lnck and inciden tally to the sagacity of a pair of ferocious blook hounds, to capt ure the fleeing "trusty." Edwards was sent to the city last Monday with the farm wa gon for a load of supplies, which he purchased all right and start ed on his return trip to the farm, but he never reached there. When he had proceeded as far as White Slough he skipped out, leaving the wagon and team standing in the road. Manager Salter who was in the city Monday, came along a little later and found the team standing where the negro had left. He proceed ed to the county farm and im mediately put the blood hounds on the tract of the fugitive, but up to last night he had not been captured. WILL ATTEND THE ENCAMPMEMT. The Columbus Riflemen have definitely decided to Jattend the state encampment, which is to be held at Biloxi August 18th to 28- h. The company will leave here at four o'clock on the morn ing of the 18th, going from Col- lumbus to West Point over the Southern, from West Point to Jackson over the Illinuis Central, and thence to Gulfport over the Gulf and Ship Island. There has been some trouble in the effort which was made to obtain low rates of transportation' over the Louisville and Nashville railroad from Gulfport to Biloxi, and ac cording to the efficial orders is sued from the office of the adju ntat general, the men are to walk this distance, which is something like ten miles. The members of the National Guards are, how ever, much averse to making this long march, during the warm weather, and it is to be hoped that satisfactory ar rangements for their transporta tion may yet be made. 75,000 ACRES PRAIRIE LAND WANTED. The editor of The Commercial has received a letter from a prominent railroad official who states that he has bean in cor respondence with some reliable parties in the north who want to buy a tract of about 75,000 acres of prairie land in East Mississippi for the purpose of locating a largecolony who desire to engage in diversified farming. Of cours it would not be poss ible to find this much land for sale in a body, but it can doubt less be found in tracts adjacent, and The Cowmercial asks every one who has prairie land for sale to write a description of same, giving location, improve ments, price etc and send to J. T. Senter, Columbus, Miss. Vacation Days. Vacation time is here and the children are fairly living out of doors.
