Wood has bought aiz business lota at GulfporU A in former years the first week in January has been miserable weather Got. Samford, of Alabama, says be will eiert his power to the uttermost in abattoir the lynching evil in bis Sttte. A young man in North Carolina dropped dead New Year's day while irrnltins a ciaerrette. Boys take warning. The war in South Africa is still imimrnn and the Boers are holding their their own. The British are much worried. Eddie Cud hay was worth his weight in gold lo his father. He weighed the same as the 125,000 his father paid the kidnappers. After a week of rest and recreation our rural excliages are returning to u looking bright and cheerful and full of hot)e for a prosperous year lust begun. Gen. James E. Slaughter, the well known ex-Confederate leader, former ly postmaster at Mobile, died of pneu toon I a in the City of Mexico, on the 3rd Inst., aged 87 years. We extend or heartfelt sympathy to our fi Tends, Mr. P. E. Williams and wife of the Lumberton Head-Block in the death of their bright and noble little boy, Lloyd, who died suddenly on Christmas morning, seven years old. Mobile possesses one of the finest new hotels in the South. The Bien Title, H. C. Chapman, manager, open ed to the public shortly before the new year, is fitted up with modern con Teniencea and Is recti ring an over flowing patronage. There is probably no grander sight anywhere in the world, except on the Mediterrcoeao than the aspect of the horizon at sunset when viewed from the picturesque banks of the Pasca goula river and bay. The lambent tints of the clouds are exquisitely re flected in the silvery waters beneath Got. Longino has pardoned Walter Colbert, a white man sent up from Kemper county eight years ago to serve a life sentence for murder. The pardon was based on a recommenda tion of the board of control and As sociate Justice Sam H. Terral, of the Supreme Court. On Dec. 22, 1900, the Greenwood En terprlse completed its fourteenth year, Mr. James L. Gillespie, editor and proprietor. The Enterprise Is one of our favorite Delta exchanges, and we hope it may live and prosper at least to the end of the present new century. May Bra. Gillispie and his good wife enjoy connubial bliss until time is no more. Judge Robert Powell, of Canton, circuit judge of that district by special order says lie intends to enforce the Sunday law to the letter. He has ordered all stores, fruit stands, barber shops, grocery stores, saloons and livery stables closed hard and fast that even the drug stores are not allowed to sell anything but medi cines. Senator Mark Hanna's ship subsidy bill has been side-tracked. It has re ceived a death blow by being sent to the bottom of the calendar. It will not he heard of any more during the session of this Congress. So the scheme of Harms and his friends to raid the national treasury to the ex tent of ($0,000 a year for three years will now abondon their game. Capt. Joseph A. Favre has sold his entire Interest in the Poitevent & Favre Lumber Co. at Pearllngton, and the East Louisiana Railroad to Mr. Fraok B. Hayne, a sop In law of the late Capt. John Poitevent. Capt.

No one can help but perceive that our town is In the ascendant. Improvements of various kinds daily meet the eye; plans of progress are rapidly unfold ing, streets have been bettered in the last three or fou months, buildings, both residences and store houses are going up as it by magic. It Is a pleasure to see the energetic workman weilding his edged tools, and changing unsightly places Into things of beauty. In fact, an embryo city, which shall number man) thousands begins to glimmer on our vision. Really, we are in earnest. It Is a ,rite old saying "where there is a will there is a way," and In most cases it is true, unerring as the cjclgtot the sun. we do not claias prophetic wisdnu, or the second sight of . seer, but only the logical sequence uf cause and effect. We have eJ of, Ar finest countries on earth, beautiTuI to be hold, fertile to produce, pleasant and healthful to enjoy. Our town is a splendid mart for commerce. Means of transportation, surrounding water power and conveniences for factories. ship building and work shops of every sort, wi tli numberlessotheradvantages abound in our vicinity. With the manifest advantages we possess there is no possible barrier to grand success. All we need is concert of action and unity of aim, many others have come to the same conclu sion, and their ranks receive daily accessions. These public workers will increase and multiply, their lines will swell the spirits among us until old foggy ism shall bang its head in silent acquiescence, and croaking shall seek congenial sounds in the mire of far frog poods. Judge Cantrill, of Frankfort, Ken tucky, In his charge to the grand jury the other day, took occasion to say that he disagreed with the minis ters, the educators and the press in their boast of great achievements in theceutury just closed. Hesaid hat while intellectual developments had progressed it had done so to the ex clusion of moral education, and as a consequence the standard of morality is constantly retrograding and crime has Increased almost in the same de gree as intellectual developments has progressed. We believe Judge Cantrill is correct In his views as anunciated above. The phenominal commercial de velopment of Jackson county during the past few years, Is a source of great satisfaction to its people. The large output of lumber exported by rail and water to domestic and foreign coun tries is proving a substantial factor in its financial prosperity. A new fea ture of its development Is the vast, supply of rosin, turpentine and char coal daily shipped lo various parts. The settling of homesteads on govern ment lands for farming purposes is increasing and improvements thereon show their value through industrious cultivation. J.J.Newman, a prominent citizen of Hattiesburg, died on Christmas day. He was the founder and man ager of the J. J. Newman Lumber Co. one of the largest olants in the South His deatli wis flue to a stroke of para lysis a week previous. live negroes have been arrested near Hattiesburg, Miss., for setting fire to a mill at that place. There is evidence obtained to prove the guilt of some of them. During the month of December there were but two deaths in Jackson Miss., both being colored. Of thesi two only one died a natural death, the other being killed. Senator Quay, of Pennsylvania, is dow having a wnrm flight in the legis lature of that State for a seat in the United States Senate. Indiana has a big, brawny woman who prowls about Jeffersonville.catch ing Innocent men and kissing them against their will. It will now be the thing to run bachelor excursion trains to the town. The Supreme Court docket for this Supreme Court district has been ad vanced from the first Monday In Feb ruary to the third Monday the 21st, day f January. Defermnied to bread ud the illicit whiskey traffic which is said to exist along the Gulf and Ship Island road. General Manager S. S. BulllawiUte sue passes to any one to Jackson srno Is willing to testify against the illicit dealers. There seems to be a general feeling that the government would have made a good investment had it given Spain that 120,000,000 on condition that, she keep the Philippine. Plans have been received at Uiloxi, forthenew depot to be -built on the site of the old structure burned dur ing the recent big fire. The depot will be modern in every respect. It is said that the gravity of the South African situation is under rated, and that Cape Colony Is really in danger, due to the Boer Invasion. ' - T AlLentlnn is riirai'tarl tj tlu, url .. we...

It is worthy of a place in every home scrapbook; aye, in the heart of every husband: "The mother of mv children adores them there is no miider term for it and they worship her; they even wor ship anything which the touch of ber hand has made sacred. They know her for the best and truest friend they have ever hid or ever shall have; they know her for one who never did them a wrong:' -who never told them a lie nor the shadow of one; who never de ceived them by even an ambiguous gesture; who never gave them aa un reasonable command nor ever content ed herself short of a perfect obedience; who has, always treated them as politely and considerately as she would the bestend .oldest in the land, and has always... Required of tbetu gentle speech andtcourteous conduct toward all, 0 whatsoever degree with whom they cbanoed to come in contact; they know ber for one whose promise whether of reward or punishment, Is gold and always worth its face, to the uttermost farthing. In a word, they know her;- and I know her, for the best and dearest mother that lives and a long, long way the wisest. .IVW Mttrlimtttt. OXE ORDER decides the matter.
