Flour in carload lots, round lots of snuff, thread in big quantities, buggies and organs and other merchandise in liberal quantities were ordered. One carload of flour was ordered to be ship ped to Claude M. wynum, Tupelo, to be paid for in thirty days by R. T. Bynum & Co., of Corinth. A buggy on his or der was shipped to Sherman, Miss.

Everybody in Corinth is proud of the city's church buildings and appreciates the honor they reflect upon the town. And the numerous handsome residences too; there are many built within the past few years, that would adorn any city; modern, up-to-date buildings, substantial in structure and beautiful in exterior and interior finish, And an other thing noticeable is the number of neat, new cottages; they are above the average in finish and design, and by their neatness make a creditable set ting to the architectural panorama of the city. No city of equal size shows a more creditable array of houses built, furnishëd and finished in style the most modern, than those built in Cor inth recently. Improvements are con stantly going on; additions built and the paint brush busy all over town. The Old Reliable Druggist. Read the local notices of R.

The hope of the Cubans run high. They are lighting bonfiireson every hill-top and in every valley and the scream of the Eagle is heard in the air. personal privilege question between Captain-General Weyler and Capt. D. T. Beall lately appointed Consul-Gen eral to Cuba from the western part of Prentiss county. The custom house of ficials of Havana upon searching the baggage of the lately appointed con sul-general, discovered an old army musket secreted in the luggage. They immediately seized upon said gun de claring it to be contraband of war. They set up the claim that it was one of two guns, either the one carried by Uncle Billy Boone during the war or the one carried by Private John M. Al len from the Tupelo district. It did not look to he a dangerous gun, just a common old army musket. One would not suppose from a casual and hasty view of the weapon, it had been used in every hard contested battle fought between the North and the South from the Potomac to the Rio Grande, the Spanish custom house officials view ed the weapon with a great deal of in terest and alarm, and would not give up the gun. The evidence of the Private Secre tary, 'Tater Smith, was that he had picked up the old musket in Booneville, Miss., before starting on the voyage; that it might be Mr. Gite Webber's or Capt. Carter's gun, or a half-dozen confederate soldiers he could mention. Or the guu might have been used dur ing the war by the Mayor of Rienzi. No odds who the blamed old musket belonged to, he had no idea it had killed a Yankee during the whole war. Having to make the voyage across the Gulf on the battleship Texas, he had merely secreted the gun to fire off as a danger signal gun, in case of distress at sea. The consul-general had docu mentary evidence to prove that Uncle Boone's gun was buried in the ground at Selma, Ala., and a note trom Lord Salisbury stated that to his certain knowledge Private John Alien's gun was leased to the Venezuela Govern ment for three years or during the war. That was the reason England had not declared war against Venezue la, and not on account of Cleveland's bluff. All this commotion grew out of a But bluff. And yet they would not give up the gun. Beall dared Weyler to mortal combat with six ounce gloyes, Marquis of Queensbury rules. Weyler replied that lie was born and bred a soldier, never engaged in slugging matches and had a contempt for the slugger. As he would not give the satisfaction due to a gentleman Capt. Beall declared he would raze the walls of New Castle to the ground. He dispatched to the battle ship Texas, to get in a position for action. One of her large paddle wheels being unable to turn, an Eng lish Man of War, kindly towed her in to position. The commander of the Texas, with tears in his eyes, shook the hand of the English captain and ex pressed the hope that he would live to see the day when he could return the like favor. The Englishman replied: "No, thank you;" "Don't mention it." Her decks being cleared for action and her cannon pointing straight to to Mo ra Castle, the consul-general gave cap tain-general three hours to give up the gun.

SMALL & ELGIN. l Corinth, Miss; Tel. 2}. / : Sag HIS LAST SLEEP. Dsath of Capt. Johu H. Bradley iu Tex arkana—An Old Corinthian. With great sadness are we called up on to announce the depth of Mr. John H. Bradley, which sad event occurred at 13 o'clock Wednesday night at his residence in this city. The deceased has been gradually fail ing for the past year but heroically re mained at his desk in the Iron Moun tain freight office until within three days of his death, determined to do Ills duty until his strength could no longer bear the strain. Mr. Bradley was born in Limestone county, Ala., Dee. 13, 1830 and entered the railroad service when quite a young man, serving as local agent for ttie Memphis & Charleston Railroad at Corinth, Miss., Chattanooga and Mem phis, Tenn., from 1850 until 1880, short ly after which, early in 1884, he reraov ed to Texarkanna, and immediately ac ceptep a position in the Iron Mountain freight office, where he has remained continuously for the past sixteen years. He was an honored member of the Knight Templars, Knights of Honor, and Knights and Ladies of Honor, and was highly esteemed by a very large circle of friends. It cah be truly said that no man ever led a purer, better life than did Capt. John H. Rradley, his every act being mirrored as a bright reflection of a good, honest, upright man. He was not permitted to be a regular church attendant, yet his religion emanated from a crystal fountain clear with the conduct of one whose every desire, was to lead a true Christian life, pure, sim ple, unattended by pomp or display. Ilis acts spoke for themselves and truly was he honorable, forbearing, charit able and good even to a fault. Knowing him intimately for many years we cannot be but eulogistic in our praise for a man whose every act was characterized by a desire to do right, to live a good life and to charit ably overlook the shortcomings of his fellovmefi. Sorrowfully do we part with a good, true friend and our warm est and most heartfelt sympathy is ex tended to his bereaved widow andchil dren.
