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
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
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.

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

No. 12, Knights of Pythias, last
Thursday at Eggleston's
Springs, was not only one of the
most successful outings ever

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

direction of Mr. Peter Geraud
and the meats were faultlessly
