' Mules will brine a high price-next Spring. Foreign ien:atid is reducing the stock In America. The sutfar cane ciop of Louisiana lias been danumid by the late frosts at. least ten per cent. Quarantine is a thing of the past. Husincss lias revived, so our people are feeling very happy. More newspapers are printed in the United States than in England, France and Germany combined. Ninety-nine thousand pairs of rus set shoes are being shipped to the sol diers at Manila by the government. llcv. Sam Jones, the evangelist, is ill at Louisville. He has cancelled all bis engagements until January 1st. On Saturday last quarantine was lifted from this and adjoining States. Travel and business are lively. Drum mers are on the jump. A protracted meeting lias just closed at the First Ilaptist church at (j lus ter, this State, whicli resulted in sixty-one additions to the church. The unveiling of a statue to the late Zebulon R.

For til tin nil, md If r tin sun, ' There In t remedy, or tlmro l mine ; If tin-re 1m one, try ami Hud it, If thiiii) be none, never mimt It." ibe great evil which Judge Camp. oeii foresees as a result of the eman cipating and education of the negro, ana one that can obliterate the dun ger ho apprehends, is by compulsory education of the children of the white race. Compel the sending of all chil dren between the ages of six aud four teen years to school six hours a day, live days in the week. Enforce the leveling of all taxable property for the purpose of building comfortable school bouses for the children, and the extending of the term to tcu months In the year instead of four months I his is the great need of the Gulf Coast country. Hut the time to ap peal to the Legislature for this most vital change necessary to our educa tional code Is now. The negro is ad vancing phenomenally, while many of our own race, through the everlasting struggle for existence, and the many bitter discouragements on account of droughts, quarantine and the general depression of business, have become lethargic with regard to the political situation. A little judicial force will awaken them to the needs or the hour and the necessity of personal action. Judge Campbell's fears are well founded, and the people of Mississippi will do well to hearken to his words of warning and appeal to the members of each community throughout the State to net In unison on the mighty ordeal which confronts us.

McLuurin has returned to Jackson, after having spent six week at Urandon, nursing his carbuncle an keeping away from the so-called yel low fever. s The late frosts have knocked out quarantine, killed the microbes and started busi ness again. Farewell, we liope forever, to this stupendous fraud quarantine. On the first page of the Democrat Star to-day, appears a very interest ing and descriptive article on Cuba by Mrs. Ida M. Converse, of Mosi x'oini, wnicn is well worth perusing Private John Allen did not bea "Guv Anse" McLaurin for the Missis sippl Senatorship, but it appears tha ho succeeded in scaring his opponent into a bad case of boils, says the St. Louis Republic. Though Senator Hoar is notconsid ered a stingy man, he Is none the less a very careful one. He makes it a rule to buy six street car tickets because in this way he can get a ride for 4 1-6 cents. The famine In India, which has re suited from the failure of the mon soon, threatens the existence of nearly fifteen million natives, for whose re lief the ltritish government has or dered 83,500,000 to be expended. We are glad to note that the Con federate veterans are coming to the relief of Mrs. Stonewall Jackson, who is In a destitute condition. This is right. She should be tenderly cared for by the vets. Some three hundred men, who en listed In Chicago in Mississippi regi ments, are instituting claims against this State, under an old, rorgotten Jaw, granting a bounty of $50 for ev ery soldier not a resident of the State enlisting In its regiments. - Candidates for Congress are crop ping out already in some of the dis tricts of the State. Id the First; Can dler is going to try to oust Private John Allen; In the Fifth district Chancellor Adam Byrd is going for John Sharp Williams' scalp, and in the Third there are several candidates for Tat Henry's place. In thirdis trict, we believe, McLaln will bare no opposition. He will have a walk-over. We hope the Legislature, when It meets In January next, will not fall to legislate the State Board of Health out of existence. Mississippi can get along much better without this use less and expensive appendage. It has . never done any good for the State j on the other hand, It has destroyed busi m or crippled it ; therefore, we say, wipe the thing out, and If necessary let the Federal Dovernnmn . i. charge of the health affairs of the One nf t.hn ki nii j. . , " """""us running out of Chicago has changed t.h ... the coaches ' i:V TO "" "'eepers and the baggair, express cam nt. v tr..nMheo,durde7Ja,kTn7nV': hTJ reversed.

Mr. Win. B. Parker,- the well known and affable manager of the Parker Drug Company, of Mobile, has pur chased the interest or Dr. Henry D. Jackson. The Parker Drug Company has one of the largest and most com plete stocks or drugs and fancy arti cles in the Gulf City ; also, the most popular soda fountain resort, which is patronized by the lovers of those de licious hot arid cold drinks, which viv ify without intoxicating. Vie MurdocK.-of Kansas, tells this story: A preacher said that- Mark said: "To him that hath, unto him shall be given ; but, to him that hath not, from him shall be taken awav even that which he hath."

Here in our own beloved state the people are confronted with a most serious case In point. In the ast Issue of the Coffee villa Courier there appeared an editorial eimririnur Senator W. V. Sullivan with a crime more mneous jn Its blackness and more sicKening in its crue consenuen ces than hell itseir. Is it true? 1 am niormea tnnt senator Sullivan says it ib nut., nin s nin e nen in iv i m sumee.' 1 think not.

He can se. cure the testimony of her mother in act, it win he easy to stamp out the tie, ir it be a lie. To say that "this man toon the girl from him (the Sen ator) for his own use," does not an swer me charge. To denounce the statement as u falsehood, and kill the editor who traduced ills charac ter, will not wipe out the stain which this charge puts upon the character or SenatorSullivan. The whole thing is susceptible or proof, and Senator Sullivan owes it to himself, the peo ple whom lie would represent in the nation's council, and to truth, to re fute the charge. I hone it is not, true. As I have often said. I have no per sonal III will toward Mr. Sullivan. 1 would not wrong him knowingly, but I should not be doing my duty to ray- stir and to mv countrv were I to re main silent when a man. whom 1 hi- ieve totally unfit for the place, is ask ing for the suffrages of the people to put him In the most dignified office within their gift. Ir Cant. lilonni.. the eriitorof the Courier, lias wronged Mr. Sullivan, proor or Unit, fin-twill elect Sullivan and damn Blount for all time to come. Let the truth be developed ; let the facts be told. It may he hard upon the guilty, yet the pi-ci)ie uemanu ii, anu tuey nave a right to it. Mississippi went Democratic by per haps 30,000 majority. A very small vote was polled, as thore was no oppo sition to the Democratic ticket. Massachusetts and Iowa went Re publican. (l - Tho Republicans elected their State Treasurer in Pennsylvania. Virginia has gone Democratic by a large majority. Maryland went Democratic. John Walter Smith, Democratic nominee! for Governor, is elected by 15,000 or 20,000 majority. The Legislature is Democratic by a good majority. Kentucky lias gone Republican. The dissatisfied Democrats and Republi cans In thatState succeeded In de feating Goebel,Deiuocrat,for Governor by from 10,000 to 15,000 majority. Ohio. went Republican, as Mark Hanna opened barrels and bought votes. John II. McLean, the Demo cratic candidate fur governor, was de feated by Nash, Republican, by a plu rality of about 40,000.

Although we arc somewhat disap pointed in the.resultnf the elections In Ohio and Kentucky, still we are hopeful that Some sweet day the De mocracy of this nation will triumph anu mat Mark Hanna's intolerable dictation and corrupt methods will be relegated to the rear.

This batch consists of 250 animals, which were obtained at Abellne, Kanpas, a town near the Cherokee border of the sunflower State. A large proportion of all the an I mals whicli have been purchased by the British agents have come from the northern porthm of Texas, the Indian Territory and Kansas. The mules purchased in Texas are collect ed ni Galveston and other Texas points, and then shipped to this city for loading on the transports. Mr. Hampton himself has purchased 0,700 mules, while the total number which the British army lias secured in this country lias been about 7,050. The llurona, with 1,300 mules, is expected to leave to-night, and the Manchester will sail with the last batch on the 12th. 1 Mrs. Mollis McGce Snell Hall did a good business while . holding a pro tracted meeting here last week. Ac cording to her own statement she took In from five to ten dollars every day, and on Saturday the receipts were nearly fifty dollars; while, on Sunday, sho took In one hundred and nine dol lars. But it was a good show well patronized and thoso who "chipped" In, perhaps, got the worth of their money. Mrs. Hall and her piece or a husband took out of the city over two hundred dollars.

Your reputation will not be confined to one neighborhood. Now, don't think that school management consists alone in keeping a quiet school room, but you must keep your pupils busy.

Don't fawn or flatter. Don't scold, frown or find fault. Don't read a sot of rules. Don't ask the children to do aiivthina unreasonable.and do not be too dignified to join your pupils In their games. A little recreation will do you good. You can play with them and not lose their respect. You can prevent quarrels by this association. You are their iruardian during school hours. CO-OPERATION. Make an effort to secure the cc-oDera- tlou of parents. Manifest an interest in the children without this your school will suffer. Get acquainted as soon as possible with every patron; visit them. Lot them realize that you are interested. Invite them to visit the school. Have exercisos on Friday afternoons, such as readings; recitations and spellinir matcnes. The children will enjoy them and you will find that they will pay for the extra trouble. If you can succeed in getting the patrons interested, the children will take more interest in your woikiuiu youriaoor will be lightened ana good results will follow. Remember this.

The teachers of Jackson count v are . ... . .... iortunate in Having a' high school which does pedagogical work; The Teachers Training course of Ocean Springs Hlch School was organized last year, and the cnaracter of the work done met with such unanimous approval by the stu dents that Prof. Mauls has been encour aged to make the course broader and more comprehensive with a view of ed ucating (not merely cramming up for ex aminations) the teachers on the sub jects taught in the public schools. The great trouble with normals and institutes and traiulng schools for teach ers Is, the time is too short, a person can not discipline the mind and form habits or study and culture in a few weeks. That thing has been tried by the three months commercial schools. It requires time and diligent study to learn the sub jects of history, civics, physiology, grammar and arithmetic. And then when a student has learned a subject well enough to answer the questions and stand an examination, in many cases he is not competent to teach it. ith all these things in view tho training course of the Ocean Springs High School has been broadened to cov er the entire session's work. Prof. Sauls has arranged a course for the teacher to study during the four months of the winter, while they ore teaching and will rurnish any teacher, upon application rree or cost, a typo written circular. mapping out a course of study.
