There nre $107,000,000 invested In cotton mills in tlie South. Mississippi outfht to be represented nt the Atlanta Exposition. Traveling men say they see the Dkmocrat-Stau everywhere they go. The police at Meridian are doing up the blind tigers of that city in great style. The Carnegie Steel Works have ad vanced the wages of 10,000 men 10 per cent. Attorney (.ieneral Johnson has de cided that where United States bonds form a part of the capital stock of banks they are liable to t axation. The President and his ramilyhave removed to Gray Gables for the sum mer. A man ir. St. Paul Is reported to have a free silver family sixteen boys and one girl. Finances, or the money question seems to be now the all absorbing question of the country. Hon. James II. Neville, our able District Attorney, candidate for re election lias no opposition. The Isabella Lumber Co's mills at Kentwood, La., will be sold at public auction on the 22d of June. Judge Judson llarnian, of Cincin nati, has been appointed Attorney General vice Olney, resigned. Attorney General Olney has been appointed Secretary of States to suc ceed Waller Q. Gresham, deceased. Win. P. Wallace, Vice President of the Irish National Federation of America died in New York last Fri day. Senator Palmer of Illinois declares that he will hold himself bound by no Instructions from the silver conven tion of Illinois. McKinlcy is still talking about the Aiiiericin tin industry, destroyed by the Wilson tariff. It's a lively corpse, but a very dead issue. A local option election will be held in Jefferson county on the li-d Inst. The petition was so numerously sign ed that no contest against it was made. Spain has 17,000,000 inhabitants, and 11,000.000 of llietn can neither read nor write. Probably that is the reason so much garlic, is consumed there. The Baptist Stale Convention will be held at llazlehurst, beginning July 18lh and continuing five days. About five hundred delegates are expected to be present. NatSewell, of Silver Creek, Law rence county, claims to be l.'iO years of age, and also says that he knew An drew Jackson and George Washing ton personally. Capt. J. W.

The Jacksonville Times-Union says: The Florida girl is a combination of orange, pineapple, japonica, persim mon and sugar cane, with a half dozen watermelons thrown in to make weight. An officer of Carrollton, Miss., ar rested a man on the streets of that town the other day for profane swear ing, and now the Democrat of that place wants to give the official chromo. Correct. From the following It seems that the Oxford Globe Is supporting Vur daman for Governor: "We are for Jas. K. Vardaraan for Governor first, last and all the time both far and near up and below sideways, straightforward and perpendicular." The new Attorney General, Judge Judson Harmon, of Cincinnati, seems to be unknown to national fame, but he Is said to be an eminent lawyer with a large practice, and Democratic to the core. President Cleveland makes few mistakes In railing men to his cabinet. We are indebted to Miss Mellle Peterson for an Invitation to attend the commencement exercises of the InduRtrlaMnstitute and College at wiumbU8, commencing 16th Inst. After the close of the school Misses Mellle nd Emma Peteison will i- turn to their home here to spent the vacation. , A Sbort Talk About Advertising. It Is a first rate rule never to do any advertising from which It would be impossible to trace results. There Is a great deal of talk about the mys tery of advertising, and its uncer tainty, but there iu'Uany more mys tery or any more uncertainty about it than there is about any other busi ness undertaking. A grocer may buy a box of soap and place it under the counter and leave it there until it gets so hard as to be utterly vulutless. This same man can buy advertising space and so use it that lie will derive no benefit, from it, and there is no need of his wasting either the space or the advertising. Run your advertising with the same common sense that you do the rest of your business, and there will be no guess work about it. It will pay every time, but don't buy space on bill boards, do not buy little tin signs and tack upon fences; do not hire some perambulating painter to dis figure the public places with your name and address and patronize every advertising fake that may comcalong. There Isn't one time in ten thousand that you can tell absolutely whether this kind of advertising pays or not. The dinners are one to one that it does not. Put your hopes in the newspapers. Talk about some certain thing and get ready for the customers. If It Is a good tiling, at the right price, and you nave told about it plainly and forcibly, you will sell It, sure. If your business is not large enough to justify extensive advertising, better conline your work to the columns of the best paper in the town. Better turn a deaf ear to everything else until you have made a strong and deep Im pression upon the readers of the best paper. It Is a pretty sure thing that the best people in town those whose trade is most desirable are the ones who take the best paper. Its circula tion Is made up of the cream of the community, and you had better get all the trade you can out of that cir culation before you turn to something else. Monday of last week there were ten deaths from sunstroke in New York city. The Tope has deposed Archbishop Kendrick. of St. Louis, and appointed Rev. J. .1. Kain to succeed him. llishop Hendrix, of Missouri, preached the commencement sermon at Millsaps College, at Jackson, last Sunday. Prices of everything are going up. Wheat reached 82 cents in Chicago last week, and green cowhides are now selling at 10 cents per pound. ''Free coinage of silver means a sil ver basis, with silver as the only metallic money, and a loss to the cur rency of the country of $220,000,000 in gold." L. P. Yerger, of Greenwood, has planted an acre in wheat as an expe riment, and it Is said to be a complete success. The yield is large and quali ty fine. Bishop Thompson, of Mississippi, preached t he baccalaureate sermon be fore the University of Missouri, Co lumbia, Mo., last Sunday, extolling virtues of poverty. The people of Grant county, Okla homa Territory, are in a bad ilx. They have no grain, vegetables, or grass for stock, and it is feared that many will perish unless aid is given them. A Dallas (Texas) syndicate has se cured the signatures of Cornell and Fit.simmons for their prize light to take place in that city. They offer the champion bruisers $11,000 for the light. There are now 24,OO0,OtK) silver dol lar In the national treasury that are ready to be exchanged for treasury notes, but no one seems disposed to call for the big "cart-wheels." While crossing the river near Daisy, La., Tuesday of last week Rev. N. H. Norwood, in charge of the Lower Coast Mission of the M. E. Church South, fell from a skiff an was drowned. It is stated that the Illinois Cen tral Railroad is seriously considering the project of building a branch line from Raymond to Cooper's Wells. The distance Is about five miles, and during the season it is believed the road would pay handsomely. The white Baptists of the South now number 1,431,041 ; churches, 17,- 803; ordained ministers, 9,907. The contributions during the past year for foreign missions were $12.5,417 ; for home missions, $R8,fi40.20. These gifts were larger than for any year In the history of the convention except for 1892, "the centenial year of Bap tist foreign missions." The Sunday school board Is not only self-supporting but yields a small amount for missionary work. The jury in the case of Citilfield and Haley, boodle council men of New Orleans, brought In a verdict of guilty as charged, last Wednesday morning. What with the. Sunday law being rigidly enforced, malefactors agalnsl law and order punished and prize- lighting no longer a leading feature New Orleans will cease to be hiss a and by-word and will take her place along side the best governed cities In the Union. The mills of the gods rind slow, but they grind exceedingly line." Japanese Liver Pellets are an In fallible specif) of or constipation, bili ousness and slek headache. Small pill. Fifty doses, 25 cu. "GOD, GIVE US KEN." Edgar Wilson, the Jackson corres pondent of the N. O. Picayune, draws this unhappy picture or the situation now confronting Mlssisslpoians. every line of whiJh Is literally true: The time has come t .) speak to Mis sissippians plainly. The situation is not one ol pride lo high-minded sons of the State. It lias been said that the Legisla ture, which assembles in this city next .I.muarv. will not find a dollar in the State Treasury. Those who know best say this Is literally true. Nay, more. The treasury will be empty in a few months, and the State will again be compelled to tide along until the tax-gatherers report on its promi ses to pay. In plain terms, more warrants must Issue. On top of this heavy load under which the State Is sweating and grunting the State-house is toppling down. The next Legislature must either further tax the people to build a new one or repair tlie old one. it Is confessed with humiliation that, the Capitol of Mississippi is spoken of as unsafe ; that it presents the most 'un sightly appearance of any Capitol building in the nation, North or South. Its inotely walls have not seen a paint brush in twenty years. The plastering Is blistered where it has not parted company with the ceiling ; great cracks a foot wide grin and yawn at visitors; walls 17 inches out of plumb are held together by hog-chains and supported by monster pieces of timber; and but why go on? The heart sickens and the eye seeks less unpleasing sights. But, alas ! what do we see ? Melan choly thought ! A sad commentary on the situation. We behold candidates for State ollices yes, even for govern or, the exalted office for chief magis trate of this proud commonwealth a position tilled by a Polndexter, a Mc Nutt. a Runnels, a Foote, a Quitman, a McWillie, a Brown, and now graced by a Stone running over the State predicating their claims to a Dem ocratic nomination for that office upon a single national issue, "the free and unlimited coinage of silver at the ra tio of 10 to 1, without international agreement," to the utter exclusion of a discussion of State issues. We see candidates for be it constables doing the same thing. They do not do it quite so well as candidates for gov ernor, but they do it more naturally. We see Frank Bnrkitt, the apostle of Populiteism in Mississippi, accusing t hese persons of stealing a plank in the Populite platform, the shibboleth of which party is "Hi to 1." We read column after column in the Slate press signed by candidates for the leg islature, claiming that tlie country Is in the throes of death, and that "10 to I" is the only cure; that they will vote for no candidate for the United States Senate who does not favor "iO to 1." And some of them evidently do not know that the Senator to be chosen by the Legislature next Jan uary wi1! not take the oath of office until March 4, isoo, and that unless there shall be a called session of Con gressa most unlikely thing that we will not vote on liny question be fore the following December, four and a half years from now; and that If half tlieys iv ab iul the condition of the country and the necessities of the people is true, we will all be dead long lielore tout time "starved to death." Like some of the candidates for governor, they are utterly Ignoring State matters with which they must deal, vital natters, and are prating about matters with winch they have nothing on earth to do. If there shall boa change in the financial pol icy of the united States it will be set tled at the presidential election in 18H0, or by the legislature following immediately thereafter, long before the Senator to be elected in Jauuary next ever takes his seat. The next governor of Mississippi will be called upon to reorganize the judiciary of the State. Every circuit judge and chancellor will have to walk the plank or he reappointed. A successor to Judge Cooper, on the su preme bench, must also be named. Already it is openly talked that this man or that will get this judgeship or that ;-that this chancellor or that will go to this man or that, and so-aud-so will be appointed supreme court judge. Tills is scandalous. Time was when a mere hint of such a thing would have caused public sen timent to gorge; to apply to any such supposed cabal a sedentary farce suffi cient to spread the actors nt rest for ever. But, O, the times ; (), the man ners. The appointive judiciary sys tem was kept in the new constitution that the judicial ermine might be kept out of the slime of pot-house politics. But bad as the situation Is repre sented, there is yet time for reforma tion. It is never loo late to do good. And all the indications point to the fact that the patriotism of tlie State is fast arousing; that endurance has reached its bounds. A devoted Mississippian, after la menting what he termed a day of small men, in conversation with the Picayune correspondent, said : "Oh, for a Lamar! He would flutter the time-servers and place-hunters, like an eagle in a dove-cete." What we would like to know is when the "ouecr story" was found on an Island out from Biloxi corked up in a bottle if P. K. Mayers was with the editor of the Grccdwood Enter prise ? Like a tlsh story it sometimes requires witnesses to substantiate tlie statement. Newton County Pro gress. We were not with the editor of tlie Greenwood Enterprise when he found the bottled up story, but the picture drawn of men and events are so true to life that we accept Has such, and deny that it has the semblance of a fish story. Maj. R. A. Vaneleavc, candidate for Auditor of the State was in town Thursday. Mr. Vaneleavc is the af fable gentleman wtio presided over the Pass Christian Convention last year. He will make a big race for tlie office he seeks. Woodvllie Republi can. When Ex-Governor Lubbock, of Texas, shook hands with Miss Win nie Davis at the confederate reunion at Houston, Tex., hesald : "My child, it was I who carried you in my arms Into the prison to see your father." Miss imvih tnrew her arms around the old man's neck and mingled her tears with his. By reference to our announcement column the voters of Beat No, 3 will see that the name of Charles W. Gar ner appears therein as a candidate for Justice of Peace of said Beat. Mr. Garner Is a plain, practical busi ness man, and If elected to the office to which he aspires he will execute the law as he finds It, notcarelng whether it pleases or displeases the party before him.
