In rremory of little Thoinns Leslie, son of Mr. and Mrs. J. H. Bell, who died at his hi me in Columbus, Miss., Jan. 31, 1905. Age ighieen months, God only lent him to us a short while, 18 months of a beautiful life spent in this viieked world that it might be btigbtened by the loving influence exerted while here. The rarpst jewels are the first selected, the most beautiful flowers the first to be plucked. Little Thomas was a jewell too rare and a flower too beautiful to remain with us long, so our loving Jesus, who said "suffer little children to come unto me" came and carried htm to his Heavenly home where he j ins the millior s of good little boys and girls gone before. He was a most affectionate and lovable chilJ and all who knew him will cherish the influence of his gen tle ways. His every good act is a flower which will beautify his final home; every god deed an evergreen which will mark his final resting place; every pure motive a bird which will sing the harmony of loye over bis grave. Sleep on dear Thomas take thy rest; God called thee home, he thought it best: Beyond the shadow of the tomb, Little Thomas is waiting till papa and mamma come. J. A. B.

V4 s Col. W. D. Humphries is in re ceipt of a letter from Hon. J. M. Dickenson, general counsel for the Illinois Central Railroad, in reference to the proposed exten sion of the road from Jackson to this city. As soon as the rumors of the extension were made pub lic in the Jackson special.-, Col. Humphries, knowing that Mr. Dickenson spent his boyhood days here, wrote him in the mat ter, asking if there was any truth i in the report. Mr. Dickenson's reply pays a pretty tribute to this city and its people and states what a pleasure it would be for him to be closely identified with Columbus through such an ex tension. He states, however, that he knows nothing of the ex tension beyond the fact that he had read of it in the news pa pers. Col. Humphries' letter ex pressed the sentiment of the peo ple of this city toward this com pany and it was forwarded to President Fish by Mr. Dicken son as showing with what favor the people of this section regard the project. A Dandy for Burns. Dr. Berlin, Pana, Ills., writes: "I have used Ballard's Snow Liniment; always recommended it to my friends, as I am confident there is no better made. It is a dandy for burns. Those who live on farms are especially liable to many accidental cuts, burns, bruises, which heal rapidly when Bal lard's Snow Liniment is applied. It should always be kept in the house for cases of emergency. " 25c, 50e, $1.00 bottle. Sold by Johnson & Caine. Hon. D. W.

Editor Dispatch In Sunday's ssue of your paper the objections made at a late Council meeting by myself and ethers, to the method by which the City Coun cil proposes to levy a tax to cover the cost of street sprinkling, were not clearly stated. The proposition of the City Council is to meet' the cost of sprinkling by the levy of a tax exclusively upon the real estate fronting the street sprinkled so much per foot according to the width of the street. As the abutting front yard or back yard or the house thereon is but little, if any, benefitted, why should it pay the entire tax? The house and grounds kick up no dust, while drays and hacks and vehicles do, and yet, none of the tax is charged upon them. The brick store, worth six or seven thousand dollars, is not in jured by dust, but the thirty thousand dollars worth of mer chandise housed in it suffers seriously from dut damage, and yet the merchandise is to pay none of the tax, the store front paying it all. As a matter of fact, under this ruling, something near three quarters of a million of dollars worth of merchandise will con tribute nothing to the tax. This is not just. The cost of street lighting could just as rationally be charged against abutting real estate. Neither street; sprinkling nor street lighting add any perma nent value to the abuttin real estate. Again, the tax on each front foot of real estate on the same street, is the same, whether the abutting land be worth ten dol lars per front foot, or one hun dred dollars per front foot. The sprinkling of the streets through the hot, dusty months, is a thing to be desired, it cools and freshens the air, adds to the comfort of the people and to the It isn't necessary to bother your brains about how to make your shirt waists in silk or wash goods, your skirts, your, silk suits, your underwear or your hats.
