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

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
The "Spelling Bee" at the Li
brary last evening was antici

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. The Association is much
encouraged by a ready response
to a cali for funds to meet the

In this, his old home, news of his

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.
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.

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
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
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.

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.
