MISSISSIPPI AT THE WORLD'S FAIR commis sinner to the St. I.ouis " orld s !■ air, is doubtless doing his very best to make Mississippi have a creditable exhibit. Commissioner R. H. Henry Ex orsising Every Effort to Get up a ocelli' able Exhibit. Col. R. H. Henry, State llie principal things that, we feel interested in are the two state colleges for bovs and girls, the first with its textile annex, and agri cultural and mechanical instructions prepares the boy, if there is anything in him, for working his way honora bly through the world. The gradu ates of the second, or of the Indus trial Institute and college, with its high grade literary curriculum, and teaching the girls needle work, and the preparation of food, through which persons will not take in their peck of dirt in a month instead of a| lifetime, will always be independent of future contingencies, and in de-| mand. These foregoing State institutions can not be too highly colored, or the: luccess too inucli impressed on tin: fostering care of our people and then legislature. The exhibit of our cotton, so far is any good will he derived from it, will not amount to the cost of freight to get it there. It is the same with our timber, there is no use in sending samples of our timber, those who need it know where it is and are com ing after it. Indeed if the destruc tion of our timber is kept up a few years longer there will not be enough left for our people, out of which to build their negro cabins.

From Big Egypt Plantation, near with the large mercantile establisb ments of our country are extremely interesting. One of the leading met ropolitan papers recently published some facts in connection with one of the largest mercantile establishments in the United States, the National Cloak and Suit Co., located at 119 and 128 West 22rd street, New York City- This Company makes ladies' 5000 Letters a Day. Some of the details in connection suits, skirts and cloaks to order only and employs over one thousand peo pie. A lady in any part of the United States can write to them for their Catalogue and samples, wnich are sent free, and they will make any garment which she may select, and ship it express prepaid to any section of this country. The mail of this Company frequently runs as high as five thousand letters in a single day. In fact, so enormous has been the growth of their ousiness that they have recently had occasion to rent a new building in addition to the large quarters which they already occupy. The company lias a capital stock of one million dollars, and is one of the most reliable and trustworthy con cerns of the kind in existence. Head Ahout to Burst From Sever Bil lious Attack.

Resolutions Adopted by the United Confederate Vete rans Favor a Confeder ate Park. The Yazoo Evening News contains resolutions adopted by the Yazoo Camp No. 176 U. C. V. which we here reproduce. One similar to the last one was adopted by the Holmes coun-' ty camp, at its last meeting, and the first doubtless will be at the next meeting, on the first Monday in Jan. "The Yazoo Camp No. 17^, United Confederate Veterans, met at the Court house on Wednesday last. In conformity with the following reso lution, a committee of five was ap pointed to execute its provisions, the members being Dr. R. E. Hale, Theo. Schmitt, R. Bowman, F. R. Carloss, C. J. DuBuisson. The resolution as adopted is: Resolved, that a committee of five be appointed to present the memorial of this camp to the next legislature of the State for a liberal appropria tion of money and means for the equipment and maintenance of Beau voir as a home for Confederate sold iers, and that other camps of the State be requested to appoint like committees, and that a day be fixed upon for their meeting during the sitting of the.legislature- We earn estly invite the co-operation of the II.

Concerning the proposed removal of the Confed erate monument at Jackson the fol lowing was cat Hju, Resolved, that we protest against the removal of the Confederate mon- * ument from the old to the new Cap itol grounds of Mississippi.

Unable to Determine Whether In a contract He Is "Party of the First Part, Second part, or any part at all. M j Mark Twain and Harper & Brothers recently signed a contract whereby the Harpers have acquired exclusive rights of publication in all present and future hooks of the great humo rist, including his projected Authobi ography. "After an experience ofj thirty-seven years," said Mark Twain in speaking of the new contract, have come to the conclusion that the only way an author can make money is to keep all his books in one pub lishing house." Americans generally who have patriotic pride in Mark Twain and the cheerful manner in 'I which he has met many financial changes, will be glad to hear him say that the arrangement assures to him ! and his family a competency for life. I In a farewell talk, prior to his de parture for Italy, where he went for the benefit of his wife's health, Mark said apropos of this new arrange ment: "For three or four weeks, now I have been borthering over this con tract, full of strange things about the party of the first part and the party of the second part, and I have never yet been able to make out whea ther I was the party of the first part the party of the second part,*or any party at all. Through all these four weeks work ray respect for the Divine Creator has grown week by week, because while it took us a month to create a contract, he creat ed the world in only six days. I have found this dealing with, law yers an expensive undertaking. It has cost me four umbrellas already, to say nothing of the onslaught upon my morals. I have done nothing hut buy umbrellas and leave them in my lawyer's office. The other day I stop ped at one of the umbrella counters in a big downtown office building, where there were three piles of umbrellas. One pile was marked $1, the second pile $2, and th? third pile was marked $2. I did not look be yond the third pile because this con tract was not yet signed, and I was not certain how much money I could afford to spend. I said to the man in charge of the umbrellas,'I am a stranger from west of theilissiasippi, all unused to the effete ways of the East. I came from the wild and hoping West, and I appeal to you as a man to man, whether, in your judg ment, you being an Eastern man, and I a stranger on his first visit to your great city, you would advise me to buy this $1 umbrella for $1, the $2 umbrella for $2 or the $8 umbrella for $3? I ask you this as a pilgrim and a stranger.' And the man looking me straight in the eye, said: 'As man , ,. , to man ' and 9 P eakmg heart to heart t0 you ' a 9tran « e ''' 1 woul J a,lvUd you to buy the umbrella. —Mr. Mark Twain. "Which shows that a man with a past can't get awav from it—even if he has become honest enough to buy his own umbrellas. That is the trouble with me I can't fool anybody, I am too pure, too innocent. Every body takes advantage of my innocence. It is a mighty good thing I was not born a girl "I am going aboard, and may never see my fellow Americans again in this life, and I hope, for their sake not in the next!" Not loo.
