October 1. 1900, Just before me aay paused into nigni "As the shadows of the evening hours; Fall from the darkening sky; As fttHt fulls the eventide, Ere the sun was set;" all that was mortal of Samuel Kemp Maykrh was, by loving hands, laid to rest in Magnolia cemetery. While iu the verv orlme of life, sick ness fastened itself upon him; after an illness of weeks, when it seemed that he was to be restored to health, on Sundav. September 3Uth, at 3 p. m., death came and claimed him. He died as he had lived, bravely and in the fear of Qod; passing into the otner worm witn tne sweet words of the Lord's praver trem bling on his lips, praying for forgiveness as ho forgave, at peace with Ood and men. We write of one who was gentle and affectionate, kiiidlv disposed to his friends, who were many; always genial; well known in buRiness circles as ot ability, he was the valued servant ot his employers, winning his way to succour. He was ot manly character. With self sacriflcing benevolence and great noble ness, he became a minister of mercy in time of pestilence at Montgomery in ltW, Filled with courage, when a young man of 17 years of age he fought with Custer, and In 1898, during the war with Spain he was in the line serving at Santiago. Havana and other points. Withal, he was a loving son, a devoted husband and fond father. A brave man has entered into rest I. O. A. Mobile, Ala., October 7, 1900, HIT.

We are informed that as many as sixty pupils will attend. The school house is not large enough and Is in need general repairs. Those Interested should endeavor to remedy whatever Is lacking. A good public school is a draw ing card to any community, as families are not apt to settle in any place where education is neglected. Last Saturday night at the patriarchal age of 93 years and 5 months, Mr. An derson Walker expired at the home of his daughter, Mrs. L. W. Sanborn, on Market street. He was a native of Edge field District, S. C, but had been a cot ton planter in the cane brake belt of Alabama for 06 years. He moved to Pascagoula about four years ago to spend the remainder of his days, communing with the waves and nature. During his long years he had formed many ac quaintances of note, among others John Calhoun and Andrew Pickens. Be sides his daughter, Mrs. Sanborn, he leaves one son, Mr. H. C. Walker, form erly a resident of Moss Point, but now of Pascagoula. The remains were ship ped Sunday for interment at Gallion, Ala. BY JUST A COITLK.

No I common aa It appears to be, it does not, it cannot attack any but those who have a peculiar acid poison in the blood. Rheumatism, Neuralgia and Gout are blood diseases, the blood being highly Impregnated with this acid poison which gathers about the large joints of the) body, and on the appearance of favorable conditions, such as change of weather, cold dampness or digestive disorders, breaks out into a paroxysm of pain, and some times inflammation. Persons subject to acute or chronio rheumatism, gout or neuralgia can secure for themselves Immunity from attack under the severest provocation by taking; the celebrated LALLEMAND'ft SPECIFIC FOB EUEUMATISM. This remedy brings ft bear a powerful and highly concentrated anti-rheumatio influence which enters the blood and destroys the acid that causes the trouble. It quickly warms the joints and quiets and soothes the pain, gives the patient renewed strength and enables him to move about with ease and comfort. Lallemand's Specific not only affords quick relief but ita most valued feature is that it cures permanently. When the medicine comes in contact with the rheumatic acid it renders it inert and harmless, destroys it, in fact, hence the exciting cause is absolutely eradicated. Lallemand's Specific must be taken in drops only (30 drops to the dose) yet its penetrating influence is so thorough and searching that it reaches to the remotest parts of the body carrying with it a genial warming and strengthening effect.
