A PULL ALL TOGETHER.
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

The increase in the milling business

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

gigantic oaks and magnolia, Scranton,
with its large, business and commer

and Pasciigoula with Its grand beach

A long pull, a strong pull, and a

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,"

MUTUAL DEPENDENCE.
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.

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?"
