Ordered by City Council
Perhaps the most Important mat
ter to receive attention at the meet
ing of the city council last night was
the ordering of an entirely new reg
istration of the qualified voters of
the ctly. All who have registered in
Forrest county will be eligible to
register in the city, and thbse who
.have already registered In both
places this year will not be required
to register again. The city clerk was
Instructed to order a new set of
books and all qualified voters on the'
old books will be transcribed to this.
This means an entirely new registra
tion for both city and county and it
was the fact that Forrest county
was making a new registration that
prompted the city council to make a
new one for the city.

TOMB OF THE MINGS.
It I* a Risky Place For a Traveler to
, Visit Alone.
Every traveler in China goes to the
tomb of the Mings if be stays more
than a few days In Shanghai. The
Chinese consider the Mings the great
est rulers of the ancient kingdom, and
they rank, second only to Confucius.
The tomb is composed of two colossal
flgures facing each other and elabo
rately carved In the style affected by
Chinese artlstB centuries ago. Seen In
Central park or Versailles they would
look grotesque enough, but standing as
they do among bleak and louely hills,
outlined against the clear blue oriental
sky, they have a rude grandeur and
Imposing simplicity which make them
seem lit guardians of Imperial dust.
It Is not an easy journey the tourist
must tnke if he wishes to pay his re
spects to the stone giants, nor Is It a
trip advisable for a woman to under
take, as It lies through a region where
hatred of the "white devils" Is consid
ered as much a part of the Chinaman's
religion as the worship of his ances
tors. A donkey and a guide are neces
sary, and it Is also wise to get a party
of sightseers together for the excur
sion if possible and to go well armed,
for once a foolhnrdy traveler started
forth alone from the hotel on the Bub
bling Well road, Shanghai, to visit the
tomb of the Mings, and he was never i
heard of again. There are many places
in the purlieus of Shanghai even where
It Is Imprudent for a white man to ven
ture alone la broad daylight. An ex
tra donkey Is also needed to ca rry pro
visions ns well as the cameras, for
most tourists want a picture of the
towering Images which have so suc
cessfully withstood the wear of the
centuries.—New York Press.
Odd North German Custom.
In northern Germany a familiar fig
ure of the rural districts is a quaint
old gentleman whose hat is very much
decorated with Gowers and particol
ored ribbons and who carries a staff
to the top of which is tied a huge
bunch of real or artificial flowers knot
ted to It by long streamers of similar
ribbons. According to the district, his
costume also Is old fashioned and un
usual In other ways. He is the "hoch
zeltbltter," or person employed among
the country folk to go from house to
house and Invite guests to atteud a
wedding. He delivers himself of a set
speech in an old "Platt Deutsch"
rhyme when he arrives at each place,
accompanying it with wagging of the
head and stamping of the staff, and Is
generally In rather a jovial condition
by the time his day's labors are ended.
