The commit with the soison was the card j tee selected to solicit subscrip party with which Miss Daisy tions announce that over three Sherrill entertained the Tuesday Whist Club Friday afternoon in stead of the usual day of gather ing. Houghs of hawthorn, fra grant with the breath of April, j and feathery ferns made lovely j decorations, and were arranged I with artistic design in halls and drawing room. This prevailing color scheme of white and green was effectively in evidence in every detail, and was particular ly pretty in the ice course of mint sherbert and in the fruit pudding over whose snowy sur faces were touches of green here and there. Later, coffee was served. Exciting whist games were played, and the contest re sulted in the first prize, a hand some rococco jardiniere being awarded to Miss Youge, of Geor gia. The guests were: Mrs. J. T. Searcy, Jr., Mrs. John Mayo, Mrs. Donogliue, Mrs. Betts, Mrs. Mamie' Taylor Franklin, Mrs. Harry Dashiel), Mrs. Wil liam Khett, Mrs. Field, Mrs. John Oliver, Mrs. Howard Teas dale, Mrs. P. VV.

In the presence of Miss Clara Conway, Columbus welcomed within her gates a brilliaut and accomplished woman of the South whose success along varied lines has been signal and unequivocal. Miss Conway was the guest of -Mr. and Mrs. Fenton Robertson and ou Saturday afternoon Mrs. Robertson invited a company of friends to meet her and hear of f A Summer in Europe." Miss Conway talked delightfully of her foreign travels, and quite capti vated the audience by the force of a gracious and magnetic per sonality, as well as by her intel lectual attainments. She is a finished speaker and gave most interesting glimpses of days of wandering abroad. The "Spelling Bee" at the Li brary last evening was antici pated as a red letter night and mirth held high carnival. Th blue-back speller, raked from th dust of oblivion, was the text-book while both sides had representa tives to whom school and text books are distaut memories as well as youngsters fresh from the pages of difficult words. Not only to share in the laughter did the public attend, but also to aid in a cause in which all feel a deep in terest.

Dickinson as one of the commissioners to decide the Alaskan boundary, President; Roosevelt honors an eminent and distinguished lawyer who will reflect great credit upon his! country and return with new I laurels to crown a career of lofty achievements. The commission meets in London in September and will be in session six months. Daring Judge Dickinson's ab sence, Judge Bonner, of Tennes see, will act as General Couusel for the Illinois Central railroad. In this, his old home, news of his appointment is received with j pleasure and pride. Mr. Charles Baskerville's many j Columbus friends are glad to! learn of the honor he is winning in a new field. As a lecturer, Mr. Baskerville is adding to the j splendid reputation he has gain ed in the world of chemistry and on his recent appearance in New York, made a fine impression. A marked recognition of his ability comes in a flattering offer from Tiffany to superintend im- ! portant chemical tests in New York this summer. As the work i will not interfere with Mr. Bask ! erville's college duties, he will J probably accept. Mrs. Sarah Sheffield, Mrs. McGee, Miss Mary Harrison and Miss Annie Wade O'Neill have been elected delegates to the State convention of the Daught ers of the Confederacy to be held iu Water Valley May 5 7. Mrs. John M. Billups, the first presi dent of the local chapter, was recently complimented by being made honorary vice-president of the Edward Carey Walthall Chap ter in Holly Springs. "Play Ball." Columbus is growing and she is coming baseoallically. The t am which will step on the field Friday afternoon to do battle with the A. & M.-ites for the mastery will be the strongest initial line up which this city has ever had. Bill Yeates, the great south-paw, who has twirled in nearly all the southern cities of note, will be in the box for Co lumbus, and Cox will be behind the curtain for the back work. Yeates will not be a regular member of the Columbus team this season for the reason that he is signed elsewhere, but he is sure to pitch a fine game and if you like championship twirling come out. The line-up this year will be strong. It will consist of many of the old time favorites and several new ones. Morgan is a new man from Montgomery who arrived yesterday. He is train-stiff and sore but will get in shape for the first bag by Friday. TheCoJemans, Jim and Ed, who gave such good accounts of themselves last year in Col umbus uniforms, will be playing second and short and Robertson, a bright, fast, snappy youngster from the city over the way also, will be at third. '"Little Joe ' Wofford will be in left, Ed ilar ris will be in center and Prather will be in right while there will be several good men in reserve. Joe Wofford is using the stick somewhat this year and Harris is batting in old time form while Prather is regarded as a mild sort of slugger himself. The team has been hard at it all the week and Manager Ottley is pushing them to the limit. They will be on tine edge Friday and if Starkville gets that game Columbus will likely go out of the business and appoint a re ceiver. For several cranks it is known that petitions in bank ruptcy will be filed if Jack Har dy's rooters duplicate the per formance of last year. The Col lege will have Carter in the box and he is an old Tulaue twirler with a record, so they say. The team this year is said to be bet ter than it was last year and that is saying a great deal. Game culled at 2:30 in the af ter noon; admission 15c and 25c. Come. Just received at St lig's a beau tiful line of silk shirt waists, all siises. Hon. Fuller Fox Retires. The retirement of Hon. Fuller Fox from the gubernatorial race j was formally announced in a card i over his signature which appear- j ed in Sunday's press. Mr. Fox! spoke in Aberdeen last Saturday j night and at the conclusion of his speech issued the following: Aberdeen, Miss., April 25, 1903. To My Fellow Citizens of the State of Mississippi: Much as I reecret it, I am com pelled by the strongest persoual reasons arising from circumstan ces which I could not foresee and over which I have no control, to retire unconditionally from the race for the office of Governor. Under present conditions it is impossibe for me to continue actively in the canvass, and un less 1 could do so it would be an injustice to both my friends and myself to remain longer in the contest. The chief concern I feel in taking this step is for the friends who have supported me so loyal ly. I owe them a debt of grati tude which I can never repay, but which I will always recog nize and remember. The cam paign of misrepresentation, cal umny and falsehood, backed by the corrupt use of money, that has been waged against me with so much bitterness, has only made them the more zealous in my support. Representing, as they do, the best thought, aspi rations and patriotism of the De mocracy of Mississippi and of our Christian civilization, unin fluenced as they were by faction al politics, personal preferment or petty ambition I prize their confidence more highly than the office of Governor, and as long as I retain it and have the con sciouness that my candidacy has to do for truth and the best in terests of the State, I can well afford to despise the enemies I have made. If in the canvass I have in any way contributed to a proper solution of public ques tions, which are of such vital im portance at this time, I will be more than gratified. I have the greatest confidence that the good judgment and patriotism of the party will secure a result worthy of the great Commonwealth. A. F. Fox. Save the Loved Ones. Mrs. Mary A. Vilet, Newcastle, Colo., writes: "I believe Ballard's Horehound Syrup is superior to any other COUgh medicine and will do all that is claimed for it. and it is so pleasant to take. My little girl wants to take it when she has no need for it. " Ballard's Horehound Syrup is the great cure for all pulmonary ailments. 25c, 50c and $1. Sold by Curry, Lip scomb & Caine 's. Old Home Destroyed. Friends in this city regretted to learn that the home of the late John Richards near Penn., Miss., was destroyed by fire last Mon day morning at eleven o'clock. The fire wTas started by sparks from the chimney falling on the roof and it destroyed the home completely and damaged sur rounding property. All of the household furniture from the first story was saved, but the second story and all of its con tents was a total loss. There was no insurance and the loss is estimated at $22,000-00. Mrs. Richards and Miss May will make their home with Mr. Chas. Richards in the future. Beauty and Strength Are desirable. You are strong and vigorous when your blood is puie.
