Frank Peeler died at his home in tbe Liberty Chapel ueighoorhood of his fconnty early in the week. He had been sick since Christmas with typhoid pneumonia. The report of his death was sad news to all who knew him, for he was well known and admired as an upright, honorable citizen and success ful farmer and mid man. Peace to his ashes! This week Mr. Virge Wallace is an nounced as a candidate for Tax-Asse sor of Attala county, subject to the action f the Democratic pnrf lie is well qualified for the position, and his wide acquaintance over the county will no doubt make him a strong candidate. ms won in trie stierm s ouice ha giv en him a considerable experience in mutters concerning taxation and ub-Acn-menU. lie is a mau of probity of character and wil'. make a good officer if elected. Alony early in January an - ardent young man came to town and procured a license to marry the girl of his heart He brought the license back in about a week with the statement that the girl wi'iildu'i havebi n. The clerk endorsed on the back of it "No property found, the girl declined J, to marry" and filed it awy with other papers. This is thn second license that has bee u returned in the pat few months. Our young men tdiouid not be too previous. The girl's consent is as necessary as their own. The office of Treasurer seems to be popular in this county and a popu lar man is after it in the person of Mr. R C Kelly, who, we suppose, is kno.vn to nearly every man in Attala. Mr. Kehy is a Democrat of the truest blue an upright, honorable gentiemnn, well qualified by his business experience for the office to which he expires. He aek a fair consideration of his claims at the bauds of the voters, promising, if elected, to serve the people to the very best of his ability.

We learn that last Saturday niuht at ISurant Jim Adams, u negro schcol teacher who is well known in Koscius ko, took his wife out down the railroad for a walk and, when they reaehel a secluded F ot, knocked her insensible with a car pin. He then laid her acrofs the track so that she would be struck by a train that was nearly due. Some parties rescued her, however, and, when she revived, she told who her as sailant was. Her hnsoand in the meantime) left for parts unknown. Hon. F M GlaRS waa in the city Wednesday. He is now regularly in the race for Chancery Clerk, and it will take some tall hustling among his j ponents to beat him. Mr. (ilass is a gentleman and a Democrat who has served the county faithfu ly and well in sevtrwl important positions. lie is ;i man of the people, thoroughly idem iiicd with All their interests. His wide xperienee in legal matters n?ei his business ability would make him n model officer. Mr. Class is a whole souled man, a true friend and an easy ei.eu y.

Every merchant, banker, lawyer anil business men gen erally should attend. Now is the time to push Kosciusko forward. One night last week the houses of possibly several dozen negro women i:i tlJe j town were posted with notices for the inmates to leave Kosciusko atonce, and we understand that several of them have done s". It sometimes no doubt is a got d riddance for an obnoxious wench or two to leave town under or ders, but when good negroes anil bad negroes, worth"-' cooks and other serv ants are terrorized by irresponsible peo ple, perhaps mere boys, it is carrying matters too far. Whatever else may be said about them, netrroes are very necessary as servants and when you in terfere with them you interfere with the lights of white men to hire labor. Our jovial and ' popular friend, Mr. Esias Phillips, tells us that his single leg is very tired cf the hard work inci dent to holding him on the saddle dur ing bis many official trips over the county. He is also afraid that, if he remains Assessor longer, his miss ing limb will never have a chance to grow out. With these facte in view, he comes before the people this week snd aBks them for the office of county teesurer, for which he is i.i every way qualified. He has already served the county well, and this is the best guar antee that he will do so again. In spite of his one leg lie is a hustling runner and will be hard to heat. The extremely muddy condition of the streets around the square has be come so obnoxious that the Board of Aldeimen have requested tbe Mayor to correspond with the railroad officials and ascertain what a sufficient quanti ty of grav d would coet to mtke a hard street. The Mayor will probably be ready t.-, report at the regular meeting next week. We understand that the rtilroad once offered to baul,;lhe gravel here free of charge '.if toe town would pay for the loading aud unloading. If the streets were once propeny shaped up and then covered with a good layer of pravel, citizens could walk across the strrets after the hardest 'rain without carrying ten pounds of real estat..1 on their shoes, and wagons would run a hundred per cent lighter. Victor Cook, son of Mr. Win. Cook, is well known in this county, being an intelligent and popular young man. For someinne he has been flagman on a railroad over at Vicksburg. Last Monday evening,, he received his .month s pay at Vicksburg and started off on the train, lie was on top of ttie caboose as tbe train approached Fort Gibson at 11: 110 P. M., when some one approached him from behind and knecked him insensible wiih a blow on the head. The party 'or parties then robbed him of his watch. s me $C" in money, and rolled him off the caooose while the train was still at full speed. Fortunately he fell cloar of the cr"s- ties into rxud and slush, or he mu'ht have been killed. His principal injury was a severe contusion near the right eir. Two negroes have oeeu r-rrested for the crime. The doctors are confi dent of Victor's recovery. Last Monday night about one o'clocs Salem church, eight miles South of Kosciusko, war discovered to be on tire. The discovery was made too late to save the building, however, and the latter w as a total ruiu iu a short while. There had not been services of any kind In the church sine Sunday, and then there was no lire hecau.-e the house had neither s'oe nor tire place; and so the c udl.vjratioii undoubtedly appears to have been of ui-endiarv ori gin, it was ? new ehc.rch, just timtdied last yeai, and one of the i.icist in the county.
