That he will be criticised for some of them is to be expected, but what does human condemnation amount when he who is made its object, acts from conscientious and merciful motives. C. P. Dunbar, father of little Robert Dunbar, who is supposed to have been kidnapped near his home in St. Landry parish, La., de sires it to be understood that com' plete immunity is promised to any and every one connected in any manner with his child's disappear ance if the little boy is returned or his whereabouts made known. Editor Carlisle of the West Point Leader insists upon giving his readers h . He takes issue with " Pastor Russell " in his contention that there is no literal hell of fire and brimstone etc. Bro. Carlisle says he believes in "hell and a personal devil." Well we believe Bro. Carlisle is about right about the matter. There are altogether too many people who want to believe something else. Ripley Sentinel Perhaps Bro. Carlisle, through his long and strenoas struggle of newspaper life, has , become thoroughly convinced that there must be a place for the abode and punishment of the delinquent sub scriber after he leaves this raun dane sphere. John Clark, the Clarksdale man who was released from the state asylum for the insane Saturday by Chancellor Lyell on a writ of habeas corpus, has been arrested on warrants from Coahoma county charging him with felonious assault with attempt to murder J. W Cutrcr and J. H. Johnson and he will not be permitted at large again. Clarke has made eo many threats against prominent men at Clarksdale that it is feared to al low him to run at large and if he is going to be released from the asvlum in the face of testimony that he is still insane the authorities think it would be a great deal bet ter to have him m jail. Consider able of a stir has been created by his release by the chancellor and especially in view of the fact that Dr. Nolan Steward, superintendent of the asylum testined that Clark was a confirmed and very danger ous lunatic. If the man who "knocks" his own town, to strangers, had any idea of the feeling of contempt aroused in the heart of his auditors, he would change his tactics. No gentlemen can entertain the least respect for a man of that character in this age of boosting. Whereas on the other hand the world ad mires the man who goes the limit in defending or praising his own town or section. We have on several . occasions at the hotels, heard visitors express themselves in regard to the "kickers" of this and other towns, and their words of contempt were as emphatic a unprintable. Aberdeen Examiner. January 1st the new interest laws passed by the last legislature, go into effect. After that date, the maximum rate of interest which can be charged in this state on written contracts is eight per cent, while unless the rate of interest is expressly stipulated, the rate is six per cent. As an inducement to money lenders to give borrowers the low rate, all indebtedness bear ing six per cent interest is exempt from state, county and municipal taxation. The law will result in a saving of hundreds of thousands i f c!. -liars to the debt owing people of ?o-"i'-'ippi, while the money lenders wiil not be seriously hurt I v it. if hint at all. Magnolia The action of Gov. Geo. W. Donaghey, or Arkansas, in freeing 360 convicts in one day was the act of a brave man, prompted by the most humane sentiment that ever caused a heart to throb. For four years Gov. Dunaghey strove unsuccessfully through successive State legislatures to have the evil of the convict leasing system abolished, only to see his desired reform strangled by the all power ful lobby. The governor right fully termed the system as "the legalized sale of flesh and blood to slave-driving contractors." This same ignorainous traffic in Missis sippi was abolished through the persistent efforts of Gov. Varda man, and the Governor of Arkan sas adopted a drastic but effective method of accomplishing through the pardoning power that which the legislature of his State Was not brave enough to do. Wilson's Cablnett Announced Washington, , Dec. 22. President-elect Wilson already has prac tically selected bis Cabinet. The men who will be asked to serve in the new president's official fam ily have been decided upon, 'and tenders of portfolios will soon be made to them. The name and the positions they will occupy was learned here today from a confidential source closer to Governor Wilson probably than any other. The Cabinet slate is: Secretary of State William J. Bryan, Nebraska.' Secretary of the Treasury Henry Norgenthau, New York. Secretary of ar Representa tive Mitchell Palmer, Pennsyl vania. Secretary of the Navy Harry at. George lucker, Virginia. Attorney General Williams F. McCombs, New York, or W. A Glasgow, Jr., Philadelphia. Postmaster General Joscphus Uaniels, North Carohnia. Seretary of the Interior Ex Gov. Osborn, Wyoming. Secretary of Agriculture Rep resentatives Burleson, Texas. Secretary of Commerce and La- bor Representative Redfield, New Jtork. Bryw's Greatness Far From an Eclipse While there are many reasons why Mr. Wilson should desire to consult Mr. Bryan, there as just as strong ones why Mr. Bryan may not wish to be connected Oauulaiiy nibU nuo auniiiuotaauivu Mr. Wilson will be President by reason of the masterful tactics of Mr. Bryan at Baltimore. Mr. Bryan espoused Mr. Wilson's cause because he believed he would be the best candidate with which to crush the influences not to his liking that have grown up in the nation, and he has repeatedly ex pressed the opinion that Mr. Wil son would make both an able and strong Chief Executive, but it does not follow that he would care to accept a cabinet position. Mr. Bryan lacks a lot of being a "has been." There are yet Presi dential elections to come and Mr. Bryan is still in the vigor of an active manhood. It has been the ambition of his life to be Presi dent, and it has not yet been re corded among the impossibilites that he will not some day reach that ambition. While Wilson and Bryan now seems to be in accord politically, there is no telling what the future may produce. The time may come when Mr. Bryan may feel called upon to criticise the administration of Mr. Wilson, and he could do so with a great deal more freedom from without than from within the cabinet. At any rate Wilson and Bryan are competent to do their own think ing and neither have asked ir responsible newspaper correspond ents to relieve them . of this re sponsibility. They can both take care of themselves.

NOTI .ji . xnere is valuable advice for, many a boy in the following good gospel preached by the Seuatobia Democrat: "A boy's success is largely measured by bis manli ness. . That the term of manliness may be understood by our yontlifnl readers, let it be understood that it does not mean a boy who can chew tobacco, smoke cigars and igatettes, and who ourses and swears and nser.obscent language, and Bps company with boys of questionable character, A manly boy has sense enough to know that thSse thing detract from tbe character of any boy. Most employers feel( that ft is their duty to discharge a boy with these habits almost as quick as for absolute dishonesty. Tbe boy whA aspires to be anything or any body in the world 'cannot afford to ape the very worst habits in men, hut should follow only the best examples of the best men." , " Birth Not Reported Jackson, Miss., Dec. 20, 1912 Ihe last session of the Legislature enacted u Vital Statistic Law for the State of Mississippi. The im portance and necessity for such a law was shown recently in the State of Alabama. The November Bulletin of the State Board of Health of Alabama says: . . A case of much interest has just come to the knowledge of this department. A man in Jefferson county died, leaving his widow piece of property which was not considered to be valuable. Some months after the husband's death a child waa born. After a while the property was sold for its taxes. Some years later, a corporation desired to purchase the property. which is now worth a fortune. The investigation of titles showed a child has the right of redemption f it could be shown that said child was the legitimate offspring of the former owner. The date of the death of the man was known. The date of the birth of the child had to be proved. A search of the re cords of the county health officer showed that the doctor had failed to report the birth. The doctor was dead. The mother could find no one by whom to prove the date of her child's birth. Hence, the mother is branded as a bad wo man, and the child as an illegiti mate. The child also loses a for tune, of fifty thousand dollars, all because the doctor failed to do his duty." , The canal belongs to the government, not to the ship com panies.

Unless there is soraeover whemingly strong reasons; some extraordinary reason, children of these tender years shall not stay in the penitentiary as long as I can turn them out" Thus announced Governor Earl Brewer, of Mississippi, a few days ago when ho issued pardons to five. Four of them were given to little negro boys from Natchez, under two-year sentences for pilfering;. the other was to a poor little fifteen-year-old white boy from Lafayette county who in a moment, of temptation stole a watch. . Those are brave and humane words. The governor goes on to say that the great state of Missis sippi should have a reformatory for its delinquent minors:, that they should not be pushed further away" from the shore and out into the sea of crime, but a helping hand should be held out to them. The governor is going to urge the legislature again in his message when that body assembles a year hence, the need of such an institu tion for Mississippi. Meanwhile, he is acting in the belief that small crimes committed by children do not at all justify a crime on the part of the state of putting them n the penitentiary, or on the county farm among criminals, beyond all hope . of redemption. Good peo, !e everywhere will ap plaud him in his course. As long as he determinedly stands, like the bis-hearted, tender guardian he is. at the door of the penitetiary. and protects the erring children of Mississippi from being branded as felons,' the overwhelming senti ment of the mothers and fathers of the state, and all in fact, who have the love of a child and pity in their hearts, will applaud him.
