A recent enactment of the Legisla ture authorizes the sheriffs of the several counties In this State to pur chase and keep In training two Llood hounds to be used for the purpose of hunting and capturing all criminals, escaped prisoners, etc. Think of It, ye aivcrtisers, who complain at paying 10 cents a line for locals, one line in the Youth's Com panion costs $50 each issue, and one inch a year costs $3,000. A man in Indiana died with small pox sometime ago, having caught it from a $10 bill, that was found on the person of a man who died with small pox. An Indiana man on a visit to this State has put a wager of $T0 that there Isn't a man in Mississippi who can cut and split 600 rails in one day. A Rankin county man has accepted the wager and the contest will take place In a few days. J. I. Ford, W. I. Thames and R. O.

Tho State Hoard of Health, In session at Jackson this week, passed tho following resolution: "Resolved, That tho sum of $1,800 be appropriated for the Jackson county .board of health $1,600 to lie used In perfecting quarantine at Puscagoula and $300 to reimburse the board of supervisors for amount paid for launch, said launch to be tho property of the SUU'.'' , 1896. EXPO- The State of Mississippi Is already bestirring Itself In anticipation of the above-mentioned great event. By leg islative enactment the various coun ties are authorized and requested to subscribe funds for the purpose, the maximum contribution from each county being placed at $1,500. This State is now afforded a golden oppor tunity of exhibiting her resources to the world, and of atoning for herluke waruines In neglecting a similar chance at Atlanta. In view of the groat benefit almost certain to be derived ny tne sections represented, it would seem the part of wisdom for the three sea coast counties to let themselves be heard from. We respectfully suggest, and earnestly hope that each of the three subicribe the sum of $500 from the public funds available for that pur pose. As he who gives promptly, gives doubly, so will the counties who first fall Into line be among the first to realize the benefits of this public spirited measure. OVERWHELMED BY THE WAVE. Stand from under oh! ye weak- kneed Democrats, wc have been as sailed by a little "patent Inside" con temporary, who holdeth forth across the river at the pleasantlittlc summer resort of Ocean Springs. Had we dreamed for a moment that our Harmless little article recently published was to have brought down upon our devoted head the anathema and lightning stroke of the gods who preside over the above-mentioned con temporary, wc might, (though, wc are not much given to caring fortheopin lon either of a paper or an individual when wo feel that wc arc conscien tiously right and, therefore, have the conviction of our opinions to sustain us,) have been more careful to please the sensibilities of said contemporary in the issulngof the obnoxious article in question. The "Old Reliable" has been too long established in this community, and is too well-known not to say ap preciatedby its friends, for us to feel in the slightest degree ashamed or fearful of whatever may appear with in its columns, this is a land of free man each individual is entitled to bis belief, and, what we grant to others we demand from them. CUBAN LIBERTY. At last! at last! Our Congress has now done the proper thing In the matter of Cuba's struggle for inde pendence. While we have not, as was once said of France, done "the cor rect thing at the wrong time," wc came perilously near doing so. This nation's tardy recognition of the brave Insurgents, and of their cause, carries terror throughout the world to the heart of tyranny. No military re inforcement could possibly aid the cause of Cuban liberty so much as this complete, though long delayed vindication of her rights atour hands. The concensus of public opinion in every liberty-loving land Is, thatCuba will soon shake off the Spanish yoke. In America, this wish is father to the thought, and the victorious Cubans will soon have their beloved "Cuba Libre" echoing from tho throats of sixty million American freeman. An Important law passed by the Legislature goes into effecton the 18th of tli is month, the title being to pre vent the spread of small-pox conta gion In Mississippi. It imposes upon the chief health officer of the county tho duty to vaccinate every person within a radius of five miles of the location of the small-pox the State Board of Health to furnish the vac cine virus rrcc. For his service the health officer is allowed: For all vac cinations noi over auo, zo cents per capita; ail over 300 aud not over 600, 15 cents per capita; all over 500,121 cents per capita, same to be paid out of tho county treasurer on allowance by board of supervisors. The services of Dr. W, II.

The Copiah Signal says the Legisla ture that has Just adjourned Is the first Legislature composed exclusively of white representatives and senators that has assembled In this State since 1865. There Is a plow on the ranch of the Kern County Land Company, near Barkersfleld, California, which re quires Brty horses to pull and four men to guide. It Is the largest plow la the world, and Is used for breaking up wheat lands. CHICAGO SOUTHERN STATES sraoN. DYffAlUTE w. DREDGE BOATS. Editor Democrat Star. Having read with Interest the many different projects to obtain deep witter at Pascagouln, the writer would re spectfully suggest that the means adopted by tho city of Brunswick, Ga., brought to a successful termina tion be tried in this port or rather at Horn Island pass. At Brunswick be fore operations were commenced the depth of water on the bar was from 16 to 18 feet, after about six months' work with few men employed, and at comparatively small expense, a deptli of 22 feet was obtained. The means adopted were very simple and also effectual to procure the desired end. In view of the fact that dredges are very expensive to operate, and that the formation of the bar at Horn Island is of the same material as that operated upon at Brunswick, the writer would suggest that some steps be taken here to obtain like results. The agency employed was nothing but dynamite, fired by water-proof fuse when the tide was running out to sea. The explosive could be used without danger, and Is the most economical means that can be employed. At the place mentioned the bar was about one-half mile across, at Horn Island not overonc-quartcr mile Is actually a hindrance to navigation a channel could be made about 180 feet wide (about the width of the Suez Canal) and would be sufficient for all pres ent needs, and a total of probably 400,- 000 cubic yards of sand must be re moved to form a good channel, and accommodate vessels drawing 21-0 feet with perfect safety. At Ship Island the conditions are entirely different, as the bottom of the sea there is a kind of clay, very hard to remove and will not wash with the tide. The explosive action of nitro glycerine, or any of Its com pounds is exerted when under water in the direction of the bottom, and is so on account of the uncomprcssibili ty of water. The explosive being In stantaneous It acts on the resistance of such substance as can be com pressed, which in this instance Is the sand and the mud in the bottom. Each explosion excavates a large circular hole which can be guaged by the lead line as to extent and depth. At Blossom Rock, In Sail Francisco Bay, after the explosion, Instead of three fathoms there was more water than In the adjoining channel, aud the dangerous rock was entirely removed. Not being directly Interested here, 1 oficr these suggestions, hoping that tho "powers that be" will profit by the experience of others who sought to attain the same end. Yisitou. tbe sctmo rtEslUEamS BRICK MUM!. Editor Democrat-Star. In your issue of last week you use this language: "It seems that the Scranton Presbyterian brothers and sisters do not dwell together In har mony, etc. The brick church Is the rock which caused the split." As your language is liable to be mis understood by those who do not know the facts, will you permit me to say that the only difference of opinion from the first has been as to our ability to erect a brick church. All expressed themselves as desirinq such a building, but some of our members discouraged the idea because they believed we could not raise suffi cient funds to build with brick. Happily, that difficulty has not dis couraged us all, and the money is now all pledged, the church will bi built and we will all rejoice together in the completion. We have received some much-appreciated aid outside or the church, at Moss Point and elsewhere. We hope to publish at the proper timo the names of all who have aided in Its erection. Yours very fitly, D. O. Byebs, Pastor. Muss Point, Miss., April 7, 1890. THE HARLEQUIN CABBAGE BUG. This Insect Is by far the worst pest of the cabbage in the South. A na tive of a more tropical climate, proba bly Mexico, It has gradually worked Its way northward, and for several years has been very abundant in this State. With the increase of cabbage growing for shipment to the early northern markets and to supply the home demand, there also comes an In crease in tho number of Insect pests, which attack the crop, the hardest to get rid of, being the harlequin cab bage bug. The insect is so well known as to make a description of It almost u n necessa ry. The matu re I .isccts u re nearly oval, about an Inch long, black with red markings. The young differ from these in being less marked with red, smaller, and with wings. The insects suck tho Juices of the plants, and attacked plants at first look as if thep needed water, then turn yellow and die. They do not form heads If attacked to any extent. iiemkdibs. for most injects we have various spray mixtures and the like whereby the Insects upon plants can be killed. But this insect sucks the juices of the plants and cannot be reached by the ordinary poisons. The insects spend the winter under boards, etc., and during April fl v to old turnip or mustard beds. Here they should be picked off and put Into a pan containing kerosene. If upon the mustard blossoms they are easily urusiieu on into toe pan wan a suck ii an are gatnered in this way none will be left in the fields to propagate tne species ana me neids which would otherwise be attacked will be free from these pests. The Insects do not ny readily, so that if Mr. Jones kills them oil during April In bis field, but icw or inc insects will come from Mr. Smith's field. H. E. WEED. Entomologist, Miss. Ex.

The ratrtet a4 Us ItMf (. Editor Democrat-Star. We arc on the eve of another presi dential election. The voice of the patriot and the demagogue will soon be heard In the land the former to tell the troth as lie understands it and the latter to disguise it, as far as possible, for selfish purposes. The financial question, which will enter largely into the canvass, has developed a great many "pea-nut politicians" and petty demagogues. Everycounty In Mississippi has has a large number of them. How they stand on the quest ion is-unneccssary to ask. They are 18 to 1, of course. But few or them can give an intelli gent reason for being so. They have a vague idea that money will be more plentiful and they will have a chance to get more of it. whether honestly or otherwise is not the question, or whether the money is worth anything or not is not considered. They have been told that they can get money more eanllf-iieeause It will be more abuodant. Tlicy do not seem to know that anything that can be got easily Is of little value and money is no ex ception. Free and unlimited is tbe lasses that catches the flies. In consequence of the diversity of opinion upon the financial questions that obtains politics in Mississippi is badly mixed. Just where the Democratic party of MIssisslppF stands on the financial questions, it 1s difficult to say. We know that the State convention, which was held last year did not endorse the national Democratic plat form on the financial as well as many other questions. We know that in denouncing the Democratic adminis tration that it out lleroded Herod himself. We know that In almost every essential the convention en dorsed the principles of the people's party, so-called. Now, many of us who call ourselves Democrats are not populites, nor have we ever been. Wbat is to become of us ? Are we In or are we out of it r Taking the platform of the Stste convention as a criterion, that ques tion Is easily answered. We are de cidedly out In the cold, where wc are likely to remain. The convention took care to so frame the platform that no gold bug as they term us by way of ridicule can ever hope to get a crumb. Every populite will Hud himself at home standing flat-footed upon it. They stole Burkltt's platform from under him and beat him out of his boots on it. Such a feat in politics has scarcely ever been performed before. In the canvass the candidates for office dropped the name of Democrat and substituted 16 to 1 instead. They utterly ignored the name of Democ racy. It was considered a reproach, politically, for a man to proclaim him self a Democrat in many counties. And, now comes the Clarion-Ledger and sagely Informs us that they have a majority of the delegates for the national convention ready cut and dried. That is to say, 10 to 1, no more, no leas. Well, perhaps 1 there is no telling. In view of the tidal wave that landed so many solons in the Legislature there is no telling what we may exnect next. Did they not elect silver Money to the United States Senuto with a grand flourish, notwithstanding one or two gold bugs had the temerity to lift up their fee ble voices foi ex-Gov. Stone ? We will have the IB to 1 plank, says the Cla rion-Ledgcr, and what matters it, if by inserting It the party is uereated, seeing we have Mississiippi all right. The party that inserts a free silver plank in its platform this year is doomed to a Waterloo defeat. That Is apparent to every one who is at all acquainted with the political situa tion of the country. Notwithstand ing this fact, the free silver advocates prefer to see the party ignominiousiy defeated to-making the slightest con cession on this question. The recent vote In the House on the free silver substitute showed very clearly that at least two-thirds of the people of this government favors the existing gold standard, - We have noticed recently the crlti cisms if the Clarion-Ledger upon the vote of Mr. Denny on the free silver substitute. . It tries to leave the Im oresslon that Mr. Denny was not con sistcut in voting against it. We would say for the information of that journal that Mr, Denny is a Demo crat, mid that as such he stands upon the national Democratic platform. When before the people he did not commit himself to the 16 to 1 heresy, and, therefore, his vote was consistent with the views he expressed. He finally, by a stretch of charity, gives Mr. Denny credit for honesty. Can as much be said for the editor of the Clarion-Ledger r It is to be hoped so. We do not intimate that the editor of the Clarion-Ledger is or Is not a domagogue ; but we do say that it Is just as possioie Tor an eaitor to oe one, to Increase his subscription list, as it is for a place hunter. If Mr. Henry is as' free of demagogoery as we believe Mr. Denny to bo, he has great reason to congratulate himself. As to the "corporal's guard" following which ho charitably gives Nr. Denny, we have to say, is better than a host on the wrong side. If this "corpo ral's guard" docs not multiply at this election until Its numbers shall be overwhelming, it will at no distant day. His warning to Mr. Denny that the people wimldreckon witli him in the coming election for his vote is gratui tous. Bo it said to Mr. Denny's credit that he Is no professional poli tician or demagoge us the manner of some is. He has served the people honestly, faithfully and, we believe, conscientiously. Should the people endorse his course and return him he will be gruteful and under a sense of renewed obligation to them. If, how ever, they should decide otherwise ho will retire gracefully with the con solation that he has discharged his duty to them honestly, and with grateful feelings for having honored him as they have already done. NOAH T1CE. Augusta, Miss., April 3, 1896. There seems to be a misapprehen sion all over Mississippi concerning the time when the new pistol law goes into effect. A good many officers of the law are under the impression that the law went Into effect immediately arter it was signed by tne governor. This is a mistake. Tbe law docs not go Into effect until sixty days after Its approval by the Governor. There can be no convictions under this act until sixty days after tbo Governor has signed it. Officers of the law in all parts of the State should make a note or this and act accordingly. Jackson News.
