THE COLUMBUS DISPATCH.
P. V. Maer, Lessee and Manager. Entered at the postoSiee in Columbus, Miss, a second-class mail matter. Public sentiment in Alabama, as a result of the YYannamaker in cident, has so crystalized against Booker Washington that his usefulness as the president of Tuskogee is over. Led by the Montgomery Advertiser the press and people are a unit in denouncing Washington and there is talk of inviting him to move on, which will probably be done. Several of the white trustees of his school will resign and its usefulness will be prac tically ended. 13 xker has dined once too often. Lamar Fontaine has broken out again, this time in defense of his claim that he discovered the mosquito theory as far back as 157. He asks the Vicksburg Herald to see the Picayune of November, 157, and under his nom de plume he will find that he has exploited the theory as far back as then. It seems that the Major has been writing for the papers some time, nearly a half a century. The little item in The Dis patch that some of the candi dates had announced already for the next county race stirred the political waters greatly. It is a trifle early to involve the county in a race which is two years off and let us all forget it and wait until an appropriate time to precipitate it. The candidates and the people pray to be deliv ered from a long drawn out cam paign. The logic of Booker Washing ton's explanation is that he asso ciates with the people of the North because he is their equal and he does not associate with Southern people for they are his superiors. Get in the Habit. Nothing is more far reaching than habit, either for weal or woe. The foundation for a for tune has often been laid in early habits of economy and frugality. Little fractions saved here and there will invariably round into a good lump before you realize it. We are paying 4 per cent, per annum, compounded semi-annually on small savings. ?

Matters in Masonic circles have been extremly dull and quiet tne past week, the intense ly warm weather being respon sible for the absence of degree work. The Worshipful Master announces the Master's degree for next Tuesday night and all Master Masons, local and visit ing, are invited to be present. The regular meeting of Colum bus Lodge No. 555, B. P.

The Noble Grand requests every member of the lodge to be present. The trustees of Friendship Cemetery "request all owners to have their squares cleaned right away, as they have determined, through the authority granted by the lodge, to have the ceme tery put in first class condition. The excessive rains of the past few months have caused the vegetation in the walks and squares to grow excessively and it is desired to clean this out and give the cemetery a first class appearance. The local Odd Fellows lodge has appro priated a sufficient amount to do this work and this order desires the co operation of the people of this city in beautifying and im proving their property. Clean up your squares and keep them clean. Mr. H. F. Simrall, Sovereign Escort of the Woodmen of the World, is out in a circular letter to the five States under his juris diction calling attention to the fact that no restrictions have been placed upon this territory as a result of the outbreak of yellow fever and urging the members of Woodcraft to re double their efforts in behalf of the same- He calls attention to a great drawback in all orders, the lapsing of members, and urges clerks to communicate with him in the work: of getting dropped members back within the fold again. The order of Woodcraft has its followers by the thousands in the South and it is an institution whose record inspires the highest confidence in its members. The annual picnic and barbe cue given by Tombigbee Lodge No. 12, Knights of Pythias, last Thursday at Eggleston's Springs, was not only one of the most successful outings ever given by this order but it was one of the most delightful gather ings ever held at any of the popu lar resorts around Columbus. The committees appointed by the lodge to manage the undertaking did their work admirably and the result was that all of its a.p poiutments were complete and every arrangement for the pleasure of their guests was car ried out- The lodge provided transportation to and from the springs and the attendance was exceptionally large, the wives and families of the members as well as their friends enjoy ing their hospitality. The Brunswich and barbecue were under the direction of Mr. Peter Geraud and the meats were faultlessly cooked while the stew was elegant. Games, dancinig and other forms of healthful and pleasant amusements were pro vided and the day was thoroughly enjoyed. Mr. W. G.
