Vardanian, nr to any of the Vardanian leaders, until weeks after the nomination had been made and a senator had been elected. This con duct on his part is utterly unexplained. “Resolved, That in view of the unex plained inconsistencies and inherent im probabilities in the testimony of Sena tor Theo. G. Hilbo, his established bad character and lack of credibility, and his failure to corroborate his statement on any material point, by any of the repu table witnesses introduced by him, that the senate of Mississippi does hereby condemn his entire bribery charge and his statement of the roles played by himself as detective and decoy as it trumped-up falsehood, utterly unworthy of belief.

Bilbo as adopted and used in tln> senatorial contest during this ses sion was marked by conduct unbecom ing to a member of the senate, and cal culated to bring reproach and lower the standing of the membership of this body, therefore, be it "Resolved, That censure and repri mand be visited upon Senator Bilbo for conduct in violation of good order and morals of this body.” The substitute was voted down 25 to 14. and the vote was then taken on the original Anderson-Left wich resolution demanding Hilbo’s resignation, which was adopted by 25 yeas to 1 nay, Bil bos supporters, with the exception of Senator Breland, declining to vote.

Mob Dispatches Negro—Victim of Ven geance Had Murdered His Jailer. Jailer .1. R. Temple, a former sheriff of Lauderdale county, shot through the heart ami instantly killed by Tom O'Neil a negro prisoner, in a desperate effort to escape after having attacked and disarmed Assistant Jailer if-. jH. Hontwell, a battle between officers and the negro in a dark basement of the county jail, the lynching of the dying negro by an infuriated mob, and an at tempt to burn his body, is the record of one of the most exciting days in the history of Meridian. The beginning of the series of tragic incidents occurred when Hontwell was in the act of giving the prisoners their breakfast. Tom O'Neil was used as a trusty. As the ofliccr went to hand him the breakfast to he distributed among the prisoners he sprang upon the oflieei and in the tight the negro secured the officer's pistol. Jailer Temple, being attracted by the seuflic, rushed up the stairs from his office and as he reached the top step the negro poked the barrel of the weapon through the bars and fired, the ball en tering Jailer Temple’s heart, and he staggered to the bottom of the steps and expired. O'Neil and John Williams, another ne gro prisoner, made their way to the basement of the jail while Hontwell suc ceeded in closing the doors on other pris oners, thus preventing a general break. The shot fired by the negro was heard on the outside and in a few minutes hundreds of men gathered, and upon learning the particulars the temper of the people was aroused to a frenzy. The jail was quickly surrounded to prevent the escape of the murderer. When a discussion arose as to the best means of getting the negro from the basement, several officers and citizens volunteered to cuter and capture the negro or kill him. They broke out the windows and entered the place, which was without lights. After entering, the men groped their way about in search of the negro, but not until a light had been secured did they find the negroes. They were crouched in a closet, and as the door was thrown open, O'Neil lin'd, the bullet going wild. The officers fired a volley into the closet. One negro, Williams, ran out, wounded. O'Neil. Temple's mur derer, remained on the inside and a second volley was tired into the closet. There being no answering shot, a light was thrown into the closet, and O'Neil was seen huddled in a corner. He was dragged out, his body having been punc tured eight or ten times with bullets. In this condition he was dragged from the basement through the window where the otTicers entered. As they gained the outside the crowd, which had been now swelled to a thousand, made a rush on the officers and iu a twinkling they had secured possession of O'Neil, placed a rope about his neck, dragged him to a nearby telephone pole and swung him up. Alter swinging a few moments, the body was lowered, his throat cut with a knife and his clothes saturated with oil. His clothing was then set on fire. Before the Haines could do their work, Mayor John W. I’aiier broke through the crowd and extinguished them. In doing this, Mayor Parker was severely burned on both hands.

Lump jaw is clue to a fungus which is usually taken into the animal’s sys tem in feed consumed. Lump jaw is liable to affect the glands of the throat or the bones of the head, writes Doctor David Roberts in American Cultivator. It is not advisable to keep an animal thus afflicted lingering in a herd. On the other hand it is ad visable to either treat such an animal or kill it, as such animals invite dis eases into the herd, owing to the fact that they are so reduced in vitality that they have no resisting power. A remarkably large per cent, of such cases can be successfully treated it taken in time by opening up the en largement and washing it out with a strong antiseptic solution, like five of carbolic acid in water, and putting the animals on a tonic. In this way the afflicted animal is not only saved, but the entire herd is protected against disease. MISCHIEF MAKER A Surprise in Brooklyn. An adult’s food that can save a baby proves itself to be nourishing and easily digested and good for big and little folks. A Brooklyn man says: “When baby was about eleven months old he began to grow thin and pale. This was, at first, attributed to the heat and the fact that his teeth were coming, but, in reality, the poor little thing was starving, his mother’s milk not being sufficient nourishment “One day after he had cried bitterly for an hour, I suggested that my wife try him on Grape-Nuts. She soaked two teaspoonfuls in a saucer with a little sugar and warm milk. This baby ate so ravenously that she fixed a sec ond which he likewise finished. “It was not many days before he for got all about being nursed, and has since lived almost exclusively on Grape-Nuts. Today the hoy is strong and robust, and as cute a mischief maker as a thirteen months old baby Is expected to be. “We have put before him other foods, but he will have none of them, evidently preferring to stick to that which did him so much good—hio old friend Grape-Nuts. “Use this letter any way you wish, for my wife and I can never praise Grape-Nuts enough after the bright ness it has brought to our household.” Grape-Nuts is not made tor a baby food, but experience with thousands of babies shows it to be among the best, if not entirely the best in use. Being a scientific preparation of Nature's grains, it is equally effective as a body and brain builder for grown-ups.
