Theodore Durrant has been re-sent enced to hang on January 7th, but the flend says he will never bang, and it does begin to look that way. We suppose' Congress will enact . some sort of a national quarantine ; law during the coming, summer. It is hard to tell what sort of a thing it will be.

To-morrow (Saturday) the touching story of Bethlehem will have been re prated throughout the world, around the fltesla'csef prince and peasant, of rich and po r, of lofty and lowly, awakening tender memories of the past, opening bright vistas for the future, reuniting, if but for n day, tho wanderers from the parent's fold, condoning offences, repairing wrongs, healing feuds, softening tho proud, exalting the humble, blessing al ike the weakness of age, the vigor of ma turity, tho ardor of youth, tho rest less spirit of childhood, and the happy Innocence of prattling infancy. In cathedral nave and modest village church,' In the rude chapel of the missionary la fur off heathen lands, at sea, on board the wave-tossed ship, throughout creation, wherever shines tho faintest glimmer of the light, of faith, will bo heard the heaven-taught anthem, "Glory be to God In tho high est," sung In grateful commemoration of tho Savior's nativity. The soul-insplring story of Bethle hem of undying interest when the rugged, but simple-hearted shepherds, wearing the undressed fleeces of their Mocks, and keeping vigilant watch In the frosty air of a December night on the hillsides of Judea, heard, at Brut, with fear soon turned- to glandess, the angelic chant of the heavenly messen gers bringing "good tidings of great Joy" to the lowly and oppressed, to those who suffered and sorrowed, to those who yearned for light, while groping in tho darkness of despair, wheu leaving their flocks, and follow ing, with simple faith and quickened pace, the star whose pre-eminent brightness served to guide them on their way, until at last, these hardy mountaineers knelt, In Joyful adora tion, before the manger where lay the Divine Babe, coni-enllng under the form of helpless infancy, the majesty anil omnipotence if Jehovah, drawing his first human "breath amone the humble beasts of the stable, and be ginning His earthly career with the implest and least possible ministra tions consisteht with life. The first ict, in tho sublime drama of redemp tion, was begun. The mystery of the Incarnation was accomplished. "The word was made flesh and dwelt among usl" The birth of Christ marks the dawn of a new era In the history of the world, at a time when earthly gran deur had reached the summit of pos- ibillty, when a single power, Iuipe lal Rome, held unlimited sway over ind add sea.. It seemed as If Provi dence had specially designed to bring to its highest point the highest it has ever attained the development of earthly greatness in order to ren der more striking the contrast be tween the two extremes of human rank and power. On the one hand, Caesar, sovereign lord of the universe, the mightiest potentate of his own, or any age, before or after; on the oth er, a child, born In abject poverty and oi nuinoie parentage, untitled, un heralded and unknown, save to the chosen few, who, through divine ap pointment; understood . and followed the light which fell from the Star of Bethlehem. In this contrast lay the beginning of the conflict between error ana truth, between body and spirit, between vice and virtue, be tween the law of the world and the law of heaven a conflict which was to last till the end of time. Infidelity, which at its best, Is but a negation, without even the germ of hopeor promise, may sneer at faith holding as true and cliriging'with ten der love and veneration to the hal lowed events that mark the road from Bethlehem to Cavalry, but Infidelity, with all Its unproved assumption. must, perforce, admit not only the beneficial Impress lert by these events upon humanity, but also the tremen dous and irresistible influence thev have exerted and continue to exert upon human thought and action which have progressed, stood still or retrograded, In proportion as they have been governed by the principles of the new dispensation. Christianity as humanly helpless at its birth as the Infant In the manger, and yet trl umphant in spite of the most vigor ous opposition, the . most relentless persecution of the combined forces of the world, vindicates Itself, its di vine Founder and Its divine origin and mission. Referring to tho very , clever letter of M. A. Decs from Washington in our last Issue, a friend facetiously remark ed: Yes, Mark Deeslslike ajjelledcow you can hear him wherever he goes. Mrs. Eunice Davis, who is living in Dedham, Mass., is the oldest woman abolitionist In the United States and tho only surving member of the Woman's Anti-Slaver Board of Bos ton. About 4,000,000 false teeth are man ufactured annually in the United States, while one ton of gold and three tons of silver and platinum, to the value of 1100,000,000, are used In stpping teeth. A Philadcldhla magistrate the other day released a prisoner wbo had been arrested for stealing copies of a daily newspaper from a neighbor's doorstep. homing that "the value of a newspa per is so trifling that it could not be the subject of larceny.". Col. Wattorson, in reply to assaults by Bryan Democrats, quotes Burke, as follows: "Applaud us if we run; con sole us if we fall; but let us pass on for pod's sake, let us pass on." If, In quires the Inter-Ocean, Henry has fallen, as the Bryanites contend, how on eartli can he pass on, unless tie be drugged by the heels, In the military styie or progression? OUR CONGRESSMAN III SCRAKT0N. Congressman Wm. F. Love arrived here from Washington, Wednesday evening.. He wis met nt the train by a committee of ten from thoPasca iroula Commercial Club, who escorted the distinguished visitor to the club rooms, where an informal reception was held. The object. of Mr. Love's visit is to look Into tho wants of our people. On Thursday morning a trip to Petit Hols Island was enjoyed by the Congressman and a large com mittee of gcritkjmemMi ; J j FUMIGATION ON THE SEA COAST llonrn op Rkphrpbntattvicb U. S.

My Dear Sir It is a matter of great importance that tho post-epidemic disinfection of houses and places in the State of Mississippi, where yellow fever has prevailed during the past season, shonld be as thorough as It Is possible to make it. General Wyman of the Marine Hos pital Service has given special atten tion to this matter, as will be seen by a circular If Iter relatlhg to post-epidemic disinfection aeration issued In the Publio Health Report of Decem ber 3, 1897. . instructions navo oecn issneo to fussed Assistant Sargoon J. H. White to visit eacli place In the State of Mis sissippi that has been Infected, and witn tne co-opera tion oi ine suite unci local authorities render such aid as is necessary for tho thorough comple tion of this work. These instructions state that the expenses of fumigation should be borne, so far as possioie oy tne local authorities, the purpose of the Marine Hospital hervice being only to meet sucli expenccs as are absolutely neces sary upon certification by the proper neaiui autnorities. inat in some ocalitles it is obvious that a part of the work may he done at the ex pense of the community and by the local authorities, tne Service only as suming a portion tnereoj. fearing that a strict construction and ad herence to this order would only add ulditioiial burdens to the already im poverished and distressed .communi ties that have, been afflicted by the dreaded scourage, and perhaps have the effect to discourage our people in this Important work of disinfection una aeration, we called on lieneral Vyman and assured him that these recently infected towns and districts wercunablo to bear any part of this expense, that contributions had been Bent them'from all parts of the State to supply their actual needs, and that t tne worn was done tne uovermncnt would have to bear the entire ex pense. lieneral wyman stated tnat under these circumstances' tbe Marine Hos pital Service would pay all the ex pense, and that he desired tho work to reach all recently Infected points and to. be done thoroughly. This undertaking Is for the purpose of preventing the re-appearance of the lever next summer, and since the ex pense will be borne by the Govern ment, we hop3 that our people will Co-operate and assist Surgeon White n carrying out these preventive meas ures. 'Most respectfully, W. F. Love. ; The Covington .county Board of Su pervisors seem to Interpret the law In regard to furnishing county offices with blanks aud other stationery as we do, as the following from the Wcstville News shows: 'The Board of Supervisors this week decided that beat officers, that Is ustices of the peace and constables. are entitled to. have their stationery paid for by the county, and will have the News to print all necessary blanks to be used by the beat officers and de liver them to the chancery clerk, who will deliver them to tho officers in such numbers as they may need." . Capt. P. K. Mams, the salient. able and fearless editor of the Demo crat-Star, is inerror when lie alleges we wero "the first man to charge Governor McLaurln with drunkeness." We never done so at any time. We have simply commented on what otticrs have cltarged. Whilst we have never made war on the Governor and attempted to disgrace him and thrnuuh him our State, yet we are not his friend any further than he proves worthy or any honest man's approval. e are not only auninst mm. out anv and all men who are not rigiit, honest and pattiotic. We havn't got any other kind of sense but the old fashion kind and are contented in such un- progressive Ignorance. You can't prove It P. K. and will have to take it back. Canton Times. We were perhaps mistaken, Doctor, you said so much about our Anse that was bad we might have been mistaken In quoting from your paper. We take It back. A Great Fake. Brandon News says: ..The News respectfully declines to puonsn a nair-coiumn advertise ment of the Jacksnn Limbless cotton In return for a handful of seed. The News will not recommend an article to its readers that it don't believe in itself, and this cotton fake has been suown up before. -. . We did not bite at the Limbless cotton fake. Our waste basket catches many such propositions every week. i p "Nebraska is covered with a foot of new-fallen snow," says a dispatch.

A.J. Mcl.atrln, Jiw'kson, Miss. Pear Sir Wu are very sorry that Mississippi is in control of mobs and lynchers. The affair at Weon iscer- certainly a disgrace to Mississippi aud to lite civilization or ibis government. The civilized nations of lite world look at its as barbarians from tho fre quent occuranoe of mob rule. Mob law is never rignt, and where law ends anarchy begins and no man's life issare. We received a letter Trom you sometime ago and you stated that you would do all in your power to pre vent moo ana lyncn law in Mississippi. We cannot but bcllevo that you will keep your word. Wo have the assur ance fr itu most of the Governors of the United States to co-operate with m in putting down judge lynch, and give the law a chance. Among them are Governors O'Terrel, of Virginia and Atkinson, of Georgia, and your honor ed seir. we are seeking to get string' cut laws enacted iu every Slate against lynch law. Hoping to hear from you soon, we remain, yours truiy, SAMLtL E. Huffman, Secretary. No. 53 Lagowla avenue Following Is Governor McLaurlu's reply: Ja K80H, Miss., Dec. 10, 18117. Samuel K. Huffman, Secretary, Springfield, Ohio. Sir Yours of the 13, Is received, In which you say: "We are very sorry that Mississippi is in control of mobs ana lynctiers. The affair at Wesson is certainly a disgrace to Mississinni. and to the civilization of this govern ment." I suppose you mean by "we" the "Anti-Mob and Lynch Law Asso ciation," oi tprtngileld, utilo. it is a matter of great surprise to me that the -first sentence of a letter of the secretary of what purports to bo civilizing association, signed by the secretary officially, should contain no insult to the people of a State distin guished for the gallantry and chivalry of its men and tho virtue and fidelity oi us women. In Simpson county, n this Stato, Mr. Smith, a farmer, after gathering his crop, was- working a few miles from home at a mill, In supplement his year's earnings on his farm, and wtieti lie returned to bis home after dark he was alarmed to see that there was no light in his humble house, and upon striking a lignt, he discovered ms little four-) ear-old girl hid under the cover on a bed, who asked him If "tlrem niggers was gone." In the hall he found the lifeless body of his wife with her skull crushed, fonr of his children lying dead around her, on the dead body of one of which his crawling nraut was asioen. The alarm was given by tho frenzied husband and rattier, a negro named Stewart whose guilt was clearly indicated was arrest ed, and lie implicated other negroes wno were arrested, proven not guilty and relased, while Stewart was shown to bo guilty beyond all doubt, and was slain oy Smith's infuriated neighbors Tliis no more makes Mississinni a State of mobbers aud lynchers thnti the lynching affairs, murdering and cutting on i tic neans or girls, and burning of million dollar court houses winch you occasionally have in Ohn make you a State of. heathens. No sensible man has ever said that Ohio was in the hands of mobs or lynchers because tiii'se tnings occurred. I read where theSavior said: "Thou hypocrit, cast out first the beam out ol thine own eve. and then s ha t thou see clearly- to pull "but the mote that is in tny brother's eye." The murder of Mrs. Smith nnd her four children was horrible, and the lynching or their murderer was dcDre- cable, but they funish no reasonable pretext for a diatribe against a State as law aniding as any In the Union If your letter had been directed against me personally 1 should have given it no notice, but tbe assault on the peace of the State of Mississippi 1 cannot permit to pass unchallenged. We have in this State conditions und problems that do not confroutyou In Ohio. If you will allow me, I will suggest that you could better employ your time with a spelling book than In diatribes against the people of Missis sippi. Respectfully, A. J. McLaurih.
