Yesterday's game resulted Columbus 10, Starkville 5. An effort is to be made by lo cal managers to secure a series of games between Columbus and the A. and M. College to be played at the Fair Grounds in this city. The display on the diamond to which the base ball enthusiasts were treated last week awakened latent interest for the national sport here, and it is probable that Columbus will have some good'games with near by cities this season as a result. ill :ll iii Fine Candies Just received at O. P. BROWN'S A large consignment of NUNN ALLY'S FAMOUS CANDY in pretty boxes with Easter designs. TRY Jk. BOX. O. P. BROWN, Fine Confections. The Eighth of May. Sunday was the eighth of May and according to program the colored people of this city and surrounding country and other cities assembled here to celebrate it Monday. The 8th is always ob served nere as a day or joyous celebration, and in preparation lor the occasion every arrange ment which could add to the pleasure of the day had been made. Excursions came from Tuscaloosa and Starkville bring ing large crowds, and the colored people from the county arrived in large numbers. The streets began to fill up by eleven o'clock and at that hour the parade occurred. It was not near so large or imposing as on former occasions, and it left the impression that those who re joiced in their liberation from slavery, which the occasion was intended to commemorate, are fast passing hence. The Fair Grounds at the foot of Market street was the scene of the cel ebration and here the exercises were held, the addresses made, the games played and the day enjoi'ed. A feature of the celebration was the annual appearance of Aunt Kachael, an bid colored, woman, perhaps, ninety years old. In -years past she began the custom of securing the finest livery turnout the city couli af ford for her drive on the eighth, and although she removed to Memphis several years ago, she has never given up this cus tom. She is bent with age and her mind almost gone, but memories of former celebrations caused her to return again to Columbus this year. With her savings from the year she hired the finest trap Peacher & Gaston could turn out, and with a liv eried coachman at the reins she Shooting at Artesia. The shooting match at Artesia yesterday, given under the aus pices of the Artesia lodge of Odd Fellows and Woodman, was one of the most delightful gatherings ever held at that place. A large number of visitors were in at tendance, sportsmen from this city and from the counties ad joining, and the matches were close and interesting. A fine dinner was served and the fra ternities realized quite a nice sum for the purpose for which the entertainment was given, the payment of the debt on their lodge hall. took in riding streets Aunt de eight," through the principal to her heart's delight Kachael returned to Memphis yesterday, and those who noted her ride on Monday fear that she will never ride again in the Col umbus celebration. The crowd which was here on Monday was orderly and lieace- able. There was little drinking and no drunkenness and only one arrest for carrying concealed weapons HYOMEI A RECORD BREAKER. Novel Method of Curing Catarrh. Sold On Approval by Mayo & Weaver. In Columbus, Mayo & Weaver are endorsing it and guarantee ing to refund the money unless Iyomei cures catarrh.

Silberberg. It seems that Mr. Arthur Silber berg was disturbed by unusual sounds in the yard and going out to ascertain the cause, discovered a man near the house who dis played an unseemly interest in Mr. Siiberberg's residence, and who ignored all inquiries as to his business. Mr. Silberberg then tried the persuasive qual ities of leaden messengers and, after firing a hot fusilade in the direction of which the intruder appeared, succeded in scaring him away. Mr. Silberberg did not recognize the person but feels satisfied that the man was white. As yet there is no evi dence to show that the man was wounded from the fire he was subjected to.
