A few short years ago, our three separate towns stood aloof and apart, and each set of inhabitants sought to work out the problem of life in rare seclusion, one from the other. It has proven a ease of "the sleepers awak ened." No one dreamed of the treat possibilities lying at their feet until the truth was thrust upon them by a sudden and very substantial increase of business. Awakening to the fact that "no man can live for himself alone," the Commercial Club of Scranton and the Merchants Club of Moss Point, composed of the most Influential men of both towns,, united forces and real izing their Interests wore Identical they went to work. The grandeft achievement thus far. Is the appropri ation they obtained for the deepening of our channel. The dredging is al ready begun. The increase la the lumber trade within the last year is beyond compare. Our ship yards re semble monstrous bee hives. Our merchants, fore-seeing the demand upon them in the near future, have laid in a larger stock of goods than was ever oeiore oroiignt into our market, and thequality of theirwares denote the class of trade they expect for patronage. The ladies are learn Ing the futility of seeking other markets, as upon Investigation they II ml their homo merchants fully up to date, with a complete stock in every department. The increase in the milling business lias called to our portsan Inllux of la borers, which creates a demand for more houses. It is wonderful to contemplate the great progress in all departments of business In this community within the last year. In spile of quarantine curse the united action of our enter prising citizens has achieved great re sults. liut the greatest of all achieve ments will have been accomplished when the bcautirui village of Moss Point, with its hills and valleys, its gigantic oaks and magnolia, Scranton, with its large, business and commer cial institutionsand splendid schools, and Pasciigoula with Its grand beach mid its many natural sources of en joyment and rest, united now by the elegant dummy accommodations. will permanently unite under one cor porate seal bearing the name PASCAGOULA. A long pull, a strong pull, and a pull all together will accomplish this result, and make this the strongest and most powerful cit.v in the South. ALL SAINTS' DAY. The recognition and subsequent canonization after death of persons as Saints, remarkable for their piety. has been observed in the Christian re ligion from the commencement of the era. Great veneration has always been and is still shown their memory for the holiness of their lives, and they are regarded by the devout with lov ing reverence, and are implored to as sist the living as mediators bv their prayers and intercessions with the Deity. The indelible impressions of an guish made upon the hearts of Chris tians by the deaths of cherished ones excite into constantly recurring rec ollections the phantom forms that share the tenderest undying adoration of their beings. To associate all departed Christians in closer communion with the Holy Saints and tn invoke Sainted inter cession in their behalf established long ago the beautiful custom of year ly decorating the graves of the Chris tian dead with flowers us a sweet of fering to all the Saints, and In their honor the first of November of each year Is celebrated as All Saints' Day. The day Is always observed here and In the vicinity at the several cem eteries, where a profusion of flowers i nd many religious ornaments are dis played, and which bring to mind the expressive words of tho poet: "Tis not the whole of life to live, Nor all of death to die," George M. Lee, son of Gen. Fitz- hugh Lee, has been appointed llrst lieutenant in the thirty-ninth volun teer infantry and ordered toaccom pay the forty-ninth infantry from New York to the Philippines, where he will Join his regiment. On Tuesday, November 7th. elec tions will he held in the States of Iowa, Kentucky, Maryland, Massa chusetts, Mississippi, Nebraska, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylva nia and Virginia. Great interest is felt as to the result In Kentuckv.Ohlo, Maryland and Nebraska. The chances are In favor of the RcDublicans in these States. The editor of the "Old Reliable" wishes to extend to the Chicago ex cursionists a most hearty welcome to our gulf coast country.

Isolation does not belong to the so cial system. The anchoret In his cell, or the misanthrope wrapped in a robe of solitude, violates a cardinal law of his being, Hnd so far as his power goes, frustrates the benign influence, which springs from the golden rule. A wise Creator has connected all his Intelligent creatures by a chain of sympathy, which vibrates at the touch of kindness, and sends forth harmonious sounds. A sullen refusal to swell t his music by generous touches of love, forbearance, assistance, or any of their kindred virtues, is a blot on human nobility as Its Maker form ed It. The wife is In ene sensedepen dent on her husband, and he In anoth er sense is dependent on her. The child Is dependent on Its parents for sustenance and instruction, while they depend on this child for grati tude and love. In like manner all the relations of life were designed to harmonize and smooth the rugged way. But we have digressed from our llrst Intention, which wa to speak of social business relations. How much does the farmer or "log man" depend on their merchant, and how eagerly does tho latter look for them. Without the horny-handed sons of toil, commerce would stag nate, without the active merchant much fruit of the earth would slum ber and decay. We should study this matter in Its different bearings, and see how jiiuuli we might benefit our selves as well as others by a more dili gent practice of tho courtesies and kindnesses of life. We should help each other when occasion offers, and by so doing we shall often gain positive advantage ourselves, as well ai the delightful consciousness of do ing good. This theme might be lengthened to an essay, and every thought would be laden with importance, but we for bear further thoughts on this theme at presea t. QUARANTINE LIFTED. Mississippi Raises Embargo Against C New Orleans, Jackson, Miss. Oct. 31. The order of the Mississippi State board of health, raising the quarantine against New Orleans, Mississippi City, Key West, Miami and the infected locali ties, went into effect at midnight to night. Already notices are being re ceived here of the removal of the lo cal quarantines against this city. . By Thursday, it Is expected, Jackson will he free from all embargns.

THE STATE BOARD OF HEALTH. HON. EES H. WELLS, OF HINDS, AT TACKS BOARD OF HEALTH ' METHODS. TELLS OF THE PREVIOUS EXPEN DITURES and' work. COMPARES THESE WITH THOSE OF THE LAST THREE YEARS- He Also Had Something to Say About "the Amount of Protection " Afforded. Hon. Ben. H. Wells, the present State Senator from Hinds county, da- tei Jackson, Oct. 27, 1S!)9, has the fol lowing truthful exposition of the do ings of the' Stats Board of Health, to which we direct particular atten tion: "Ten years ago the Mississippi State Board of Health was an organization which looked alter the health jif the public, its duty being then, as it is now, to provide reasonable rules and regulations for the protection of life and health, and to prevent the spread of contauiotis, infeci iousepiriemic dis eases In tile State of Mississippi. "The worky of the Mate Jjoard of Wealth was then accomplished in the office of tho physician who acted in the capacity of 'its secretary, aft n nominal expense for clerk's hire. ao1 a large proport ion of the money which had been appropriated for the main tenance of the Hoard of Health, was annually covered back Into the treas ury. 1 . To be more accurate, the amount of money expended by the State Board of Health during the years 1889 to 1895, Inclusive, was $35,489.49. or an average expenditure of $5,007.07 per annum. a. "The public health was as much protected during that time as it is now. But t he. State Hoard of Health, while not increasing its efficiency tn any perceptible degree, has grown'out of its obscurity in the oftlce of the secretary, and now occupies olllces on the ground lloor of one of the princi pal buildings on Capital street, In the city of Jackson, with a corps of as sistants. "In 189f theexpenditures of this In stitution began rapidly to increase, and from 1895 to 1,899, inclusive, the State Board of Health has .expended $121,390.47, or tin average of $31,847.54 per annum, with every prospect that the legislature will be called upon to appropriate a large sum In addition to make up a rieticiii for t he year 1899. "The attention of the Legislature is respectfully called to the. question, what corresponding benefit has ac crued to the State of Mississippi for this lavish expenditure of public money? "Along with the vast increase in the amount of money necessary to maintain this Institution, its. powers have been largely increaserl,: So much so. that on Sept. 15, 1897, there was issued by this 'apparently omnipotent power its famous order: "Until fur ther ordered by this Board, no person will be allowejl to get off trains and boats at any station or point in the State of Mississippi.' "At the tirue of this order there was yellow fever at a few-points on the coast. and at Edwards. By this order the wheels of commerce were abso lutely locked all over the State, on railroads, where the inhabitants had scarcely learned that there was any yallow fever In the State, and where the public was safe from any infec tion. It caused a stampede such as had never been seen before. "in 1898, when the hill making an appropriation of $28,951.55 to cover a dellcit for 1897. and of $50,000 for the year 1898 was under discussion, It was urged in favor of these measures by tho President of the State Board or Health, who was a member of the Legislature, and by others, that If these funds were placed at the dispo sal or the executive committee of the Hoard, upon the appearance of yellow fever the cases would he Isolated and put in quarantine, and the business interests of the State would he pro tected and not allowed to suffer as they had suffered in tho past. "These arguments prevailed and the appropriations were made. In the meantime the State B lard of Health, aided by other physicians in the State, had been industriously engaged in a campaign or education, and the peo ple were taught to believe that de population was the only avenue of es cape from destruction upon the ap pearanceof yellow fever. "As the result, In 1899. notwith standing the enormous appropriation of $50,000, wherever yellow fever ap peared there was a stampede of the people, ruinous to the Individual arid most disastrous In its effects on com merce. The $50,000 appropriation dis appeared, like mist before the rising sun, but the corresponding benellt to the State has never been made to ap pear. "It may be claimed by some that other sections of the State were pro tected from Infection; but, if so, it was through no effort on the part of the State Board of Health, for the whole State was locked in the em brace of a shotgun quarcntine, which again paralyzed commerce, and which recognized uo authority save that of brute force. 'v "r-j " 'The Legislature has made an ap propriation of $20,000 to pav the ex penses of the State Hoardnf Health for the year 1899. During the earlier months of the year, at various points in the State, a disease, very mild in its character, but which was promptly declared to he small pox, made its ap pearance. Tho frequent appearance of small pox did not cause any public uneusinesss, hecause the people bad not been taught, by 'experts' to run whenever a 'bulletin' was Issued an nouncing Its discovery. It Is but rea sonable to suppose that a large pro portion of the appropriation for the year 1899 has been expended In discov ering and reporting small pox. But, on Sept. 10. It was announced that yellow fever had made Its appearance In Jackson, and since that date the number of cases has increased from time to time, and it Is therefore quite probable that the Legislature will be called upon to make an appropriation to coyer a deficit for the year 1899, and to 'tiprupriat3 the further sum of $50,000 to keep the machinery in o De ration in 1900. . i "During this time, since Sept. 10. the people of the State, outside of Jackson, have been allowed to believe that the city was plague-stricken by an epidemic worse than was ever be fore known, and publications to this effect have never been corrected by any statement issued by the Ileal th authorities. Thero has been nothing done by the State Board of Health to protect the outside World from Infec tion, except that in a number of In tuneee pertoa who had been in cIum contact with the fever were huddled together tna single house and kept to gether for two weeks, none of whom had the fever, thus demonstrating the fallacy of the leaching that the only safety from the infection lies in pre cipitate flight. Not only so, but. af ter none of those who were so con fined developed thik.fever, but oilier cases appeared In trMfclty to the num ber of less than twenty in a ttly of 12,000 nennie, the state Board of Health throws up Its hands helplessly and announces to the world that tt is impracticably if not Impossible, to afford furtlret protection, and warns the towns of the State to f4'A out for themselves, k "Do nut let the people outside of Jackson imagine that this Institution should be maintained on account of the protection which it affords tbeui, for, since Sept. 10, up to this time, the country surrounding Jackson, west of i'ear I nver, has been wide open, and there lias not been a day when any cit izen of Jackson could not drive out of the city, aud. by muVIv avoiding in corpoiatcd towns, travel without let or hindrance from one end of Ibis State to the other. e "What good thing, then, lias' been done by tho State Buard of Health in 1899, to protect the people 'outside of Jackson? , ,. "If the good to the. people outside does not readily appear, let us see what has been done for the inhabit ants of the city. A0out 80 per cent, of the population were unable or un willing to abandon their homes and their business, and remained in the city,Son:0 of these, upon the facts as they uppuareij from day to day, did not believe in. the existence of yellow lever in the city, and hud the audac ity to say so. Thereupon the State Board of Health proceeded to an nounce the number of new cases, but declined to give the names or places of resilience of those who were sick. Tbeciti.en who bad wasted ills sub stance in tlighOH in former years, who is urlable to leave the city when ad vised to do so, and who is compelled: to remain In the city, l told in each afternoon's paper that there are a number of new cases of yellow fever in the oily, hut ho Is denied all infor mation as to its location and the Iden tity or the persons who are Infected. This Is the action of the lawfully con stituted guardiausor the public health toward the inhabitants or the capital or the State during the prevalence or yellow lever In the city. "if the state Hoard or Health Is un able to cope with the situation In such a manner as to prevent the spread of disease, and tn allow the business in terests of the people to go on without annual paralysis ar.d stagnation; if the State Board of Health Is unable to afford any protection to the people of the State, when , there are only abont twenty cases of fever in a city ofl2.00u inhabitants, and publish their inability by warning other towns in the State to take care of themselves, If the State Board of Health Is un willing and refuses to gUe the people of a stricken community the namesof Infected .persons and tne location or the disease, what corresponding bene fit accrues to the people or the State for making large aud annually in creasing appropriations to maintain It?"
