New* Item* of General inter
est tersely told.
GENERAL IMPROVEMENT OF
PUBLIC SCHOOL SYSTEM.
Noxubee County First to Provide
For Establishing Agricultural
High School. Other Items of
Genera] Interest.
That the educational spirit is on
the upgrade and the tendency of the
people is to give more thought to the
problems connected with the carry
, ing on of public schools is demon
strated quite clearly, and perhaps
more fully, by the large attendance
f at the State normals and the educa
tional rallies which have been held
in the rural districts for the past few
weeks. State Superintendent J. N.
Powers has just returned to his head
quarters from a round of visits in
south Mississippi, including his visit
•to the interior of Jackson county. In
fact Mr. Powers has been almost en
tirely in the remote districts, which
he deems of more importance than
the residential and commercial cen
I""'
Farmer:. Unior. Matters.
President Hightower, of the Farm
ers' Union intimates that there will
be a general meeting of the county
leaders early next month, when a
number of matters will be discussed
and placed before them with the pur
pose of brihging about the harmony
and uniformity in action in respect
to marketing warehousing and finan
cing the cbtton crop. Whether the
compulsory acreage proposition will
be a live question from a practical
standpoint at that time is specula
tive only, depending on tli# views the
Executive should the matter be se
riously presented to him for action,
Mr. Hightower is satisfied that the
plans for holding back the surplus
cotton and for the financing of the
crop by the combination with the
bank are fixed and practical, and con
siders the outlook to be very bright.
Convict Returns.
William Cox a few days ago made
his escape from, the farm in com
pany with a fellow-convict by the
name of Young and went to the home
of his mother in Lawrence county,
where he lias remained since, until
infreompany with a brother-in-law, he
Started for Jackson. Uupon meeting
Governor Noel ho identified himself,
and intimated that he had come for
for further orders, the Governor in
mating, of eourse that the only orders
that he could give him were to return
to the custody of the state prison au
thorities. That lie is mentally un
balanced seems quite evident, ana, in
fact, lie has been treated by Surgeon
Mitchell at the State Insane Hospital
since he became a State convict, re
maining therein several months.
Beauvoir Trustees Assembled.
The Board of Trustees of the Beau
toir Soldiers’ Home will assemble in
quarterly session on Friday, July 3,
for the consideration of a number of
regular routine matters. It is possi
ble that the Board will take action
in among which will probably be a
superintendent. The legislative com
mittee, after visiting the Home and
making a careful inquiry last Febru
ary, muinaitu turn iuc uucicsia ui
the Home might be subserved by a
change in the superintendent’s office,
the present incumbent having created
antagonisms among the inmates. The
matter was left open after the April
meeting of the new Board and it is
not altogether probable that choice
will be reached at the forthcoming
meeting; if not then it will go over
until October.
Bench and Bar Roster.
Atoorney General Fletcher is de
voting his spare time to preparation
for getting up a complete roster of
the bench and bar of Missisippi, a
work that will be most valuable, and
which someone connected with the
courts should have done some time
ago. The last edition of the “Bench
and Bar of Mississippi” was com
piled by the late Attorney General
Williams, which is out of date, there
having ben so many changes since it
was issued, some five years ago, Gen
eral Fletcher does uat expect to com
plete his compilation at one sitting,
but will devote s>pJare moments to se
curing the data and the compilation,
progress in the northern part of the
State.
No Boll Weevils in County.
In a signed statement, W. D. Clay
jon, Commissioner of Agriculture of
Adams County, denies the report sent
out from Jackson to the effect that
the Maxima eotton boll weevil is in
this county this year. The report
quoted District Agent B. L. Moss, as
having said that the weevils are in
this county, but Mr. Moss, who was
in' Natchez, says that he was mis
quoted.
•* t
Aid to negro x'looa ouiiticia.
Thomas Freeland, of Vicksburg, a
few days ago applied to the W ar De
partment at Washington in behalf
of nearly two thousand indigent and
needy negro laborers in Iissaquena, ,
Claiborne, Jefferson, Adams, W’ilkin- I
son, and Warren Counties. On ac- ;
count of the long continued high wa- ,
ter they are without food supplies or
means. Merchants and planters fur
nished them rations for three months
but now that all hope of making a
crop is gone Uncle Sam was asked to
furnish help. A reply was received
from Major General W. P. Duvall,
that Major Foote and Lietenant Up
ham would be instructed to investi
gate aud furnish aid.
Educational Rally.
The next important event in con
nection with the Educational Depart
ment will be an educational rally of
Lafayette county teachers at Oxford
on July 4, just preceding the general
state educational conference, which
is scheduled to open up on July G,
and Superintendent Powers has ac
epeted an invitation to deliver an ad
dress there also. As to the confer*
ence, he urges all who can reach Ox
ford to make it a point to be there
and show the spirit that is permeat
ing the State by a decisive stand for
higher and better educational spirit
and facilities.'
Mansion Repairs.
The Capitol Commission has con
sidered certain uncompleted details
in connection with the mansion re
pairs contract, especially in regard to
the plumbing and steam heating,
which are still undecided. The out
side work has already been begun,
with the preparations for grading,
Contractor Bowles having started his
fnrnoa n! wnrlr tenrinsr iin the brick
walls and razing the old-time brick
exterior walls on the three sides of
the square, which are still standing
as they have stood for more than half
a century.
Postmasters to Meet.
The first, second, third and fourth
class postmasters in Mississippi will
be allowed five days leave of ab
sence the econd week in July in order
that they may attend the third an
nual conference of Mississippi post
masters to be held at Vicksburg. The
postoffice department encourages its
representatives to attend these con
ferences and would discourage non
attendance without good reason, and
it is expected that there will be a
good crowd of the mail handlers at
the Hill City Convention next month
Agricultural High School.
To Noxubee County belongs the dis
tinetion of making the pioneer start
in the establishment of o county ag
riculi^'al high school, which has been
located at Mashulaville, a point some
twelve miles west of Macon, in a
splendid section of the country. The
Board of Supervisors levied a 1-mill
special tax, and one-half of the rev
enue derived from this source will be
devoted to the erection of the build
ing, which will be a modern steam
heated-heated plant, and a credit to
the people of Noxubee.
Telegram From Bryan.
Governor Noel is in receipt of a
telegram from Wm. J. Bryan from
Lincoln, Neb., giving him 'and the
Mississippi delegation to Denver a
cordial invitation to stop off there en
route and pay him a visit, of which
invitation hte Mississpp delegation
will doubtless avail themselves. The
Govenor has heard from quite a num
ber of the men who will make up the
party and expect 'a good big delega
tion, and all are expectant of a good
trip, and the nomination of a win
ning ticket.
Five Truck Shipments.
Truck Shipments from Hazlehurst
for the present season have reached
the 500-carload mark. Shipments of
late tomatoes are going forward daily
in five to ten cars. The last of the
crop was marketed by July 1. Con
siderable land on which truck was
grown has been planted in corn and
cotton.
Reproduction of Big Fire.
McComb City is is making grand
preparations for the Fourth of July
celebration and the citizens are bend
ing every energy to make it one of
the grandest, ever held. There will
be a grand firemen’s demonstration,
with magnificent parade, numerous
bands, labor organizations and frater
nal societies participating.
Pretermitting Court.
The United States Court officials
are expecting an order of Judge Niles
pretermitting the July term of court
at Vicksburg, as he has been request
ed to do so by practically all the
members of the Southern District. If
it is shown him that no interests, ei
ther of the United States or private
litigants, will suffer by the preter
mission. Judge Niles will be likely to
give the desired order.
DEATH OF CLEVELAND
Former President of the United
States Passes Away.
THE NEWS JNEXPECTED
Despite Feet That He Had Been 111 For
Some Time—Only Democratic Presi
dent Since the Civil War.
Princeton, N. J.—Grover Cleveland,
former president of the United States,
died here suddenly at his home "West
land.” Death was due to heart failure,
complicated with other diseases.
The following statement was given
cut by his physicians:
"Mr. Cleveland for many years had
suffered from repeated attacks of gas
trointestinal origin. Also he had long
standing organic disease of the heart
and kidneys. Heart failure, compli
cated with pulmonary thrombosis and
oedema, were the Immediate cause of
his death.”
Ex-President Grover Cleveland in 1908.
While Mr. Cleveland had been se
riously 111 from time to time during
the past eighteen months the an
nouncement of his death was a sur-'
prise to the entire country.
Heroic steps were taken during his
illness to thwart the ravages of the
disease with which he suffered but
each attack left him in a more weak
ened condition and the end came at
8:30 o’clock Wednesday morning,
June 24.
Mrs. Cleveland and three physicians
were at his bedside when the diatin
| guished partem prrssed -abv&y.
j The three children were at the
j Cleveland summer home at Tam worth,
New Hampshire, in charge of Mrs.
Perrine, Mrs. Cleveland’s mother.
Th» funeral took place Friday, June
26, at Westland, the Cleveland home
at Princeton, N. J.
Mr. Cleveland was seventy-one
years old on March 18 last. During
the past winter he kept close to his
home in Princeton until the approach
of his birthday, when he went to
Lakewood, with his family. He was a
trustee of the Equitable Life Assur
ance society of New York City, and
up to the time of his going to Lake
wood had attended to correspondence
in connetcion with his duties for that
society.
After he went to Lakewood, how
ever, he discontinued that work and it
soon developed that Mr. Cleveland
was suffering from an attack of diges
tive trouble, which he had experienced
many times before.
He was attended by Dr. Joseph D.
Bryant, of New York City, and Dr.
George R. Lockwood, a specialist in
stomach disorders, was ' called into
consultation. Dr. Bryant made fre
quent visits to the distinguished pa
a n 4 1 a b AitrnArJ
The fact that Mr. Cleveland remain
ed at the Lakewood hotel, after It had
long been closed to all other guests,
and that for many weeks no attempt
was made to take the former presi
dent to his home In Princeton, only a
short distance away, early made it evi
dent that Mr. Cleveland's condition
was regarded as very serious.
President Roosevelt, who had made
all arrangements to attend the Yale
Harvard boat races, upon learning of
the former presidents death immedi
ately cancelled the engagement and
wired Mrs. Cleveland his : condolence
and of his Intentions to attend the fun
eral. The president then issued the
following proclamation:
“The White House, June 24, 1908.
“To the People of the United States:
"Grover Cleveland, president of the
United States from 1885 to 18S9 and
again from 1893 to 1897, died at 8:40
o’clock this morning at his home in
Princeton, N. J .
ANOTHER SPANISH HEIR.
Jon Born to King Alfonso and Queen
Victoria.
Madrid, Spain.—A son was born to
King Alfonso of Spain and Queen Vic
toria formerly Princess Eaa of Bat
tenburg. Their first son was born on
May 10, 1907.
King Alfonso was radiant with joy
when he announced the birth of an
other son to the few persons waiting
In the adjoining room. The king, on
learning that a condemne4 criminal
was to be executed in the morning,
immediately signed a pardon in com
memoration of the birth of (he prince,
and telegraphed to the warden of the
prison, ordering him to stop the exe
cution.
THE FASTEST BATTLESHIP.
Claim Made by Crew and Officers of
the Georgia.
San Francisco, Cal.—The battleship
Georgia's officers and crew continue to
maintain that they have the fastest
battleship in the navy. On her trip
from Bremerton navy yard it is as
serted that the Georgia for four con
secutive hours along the California
coast kept up a speed of 19.6 knots.
‘‘In his death the nation has been
deprived ot one of its greatest cit
izens. By profession a lawyer, his j
chief services to his country were ren
dered during his long, varied and hon
orable career in public life."
“In testimony of the respect in!
which his memory is held by the gov
ernment and people cf the United
States, I do hereby direct that the i
flags of the white house and the sev
eral departmental buildings be display
ed at ha f-stafT for a period o£ thirty
days, and that eultabl-s military and
naval honors under brders of the sec
retaries of war and navy be rendered
on the day of the-funeral.
“Done this 24th day of June, in the
year of our Lord one thousand nine
Hundred and eight and of the indepen
dence of the United States of Amer
ica the one hundred and thirty-second.
“THEODORE ROOSEVELT,
“President.
“By A. A. ADEE, Acting Secretary
of State.”
Grover Cleveland ^as twice presi
dent of the United. States from the
state of New York. Ha defeated James
G. Blaine, the republican nominee for
the office In 1884, again the candidate
of his party in 1888, but was defeated
by Benjamin Harrison. He retired to
private life for four years and again
made the race in 1892, defeating Har-'
rison for the most honored position
within the power of tha American
people.
No man perhaps ever arose from I
the rank of the people who had strong
er friendships or more bitter enemies. ,
In most things he was a plain, blunt j
man, who thought strongly and gener-1
ally said just what be thought.
His rise to power formed a striking
illustration of the democracy of this
cuuuliy—a cuuuu^ nucic
has often beJn weighed against all
other considerations.
He was known as the veto president
having, during his terms vetoed one
hundred and fifteen hills out of eight
hundred and ninety-seven bills sub
mitted to him. Of the bills disapprov
ed one hundred and two were private
pension cases and he took similar ac
tion on a general pension bill. He
turned forty-three thousand republi
can office holders out of their positions
in two years. Of these forty thous
and were fourth-class postmasters.
‘‘Offensive partianship” and “perni
cious activity in politics" were the
reasons given for a groat majority of
these removals. These terms proved
to be notable contributions to the lan
guage of politics. The removals caused
one of the most spirited quarrels with
the senate. The latter called for the
papers giving fully the cause of dis
missals. The president refused to
send the papers and gave the senators
to understand that their only duty un
der the constitution was to act on his
nominations. This occuuved during
his first term.
Most popular of all Mr. Cleveland’s
acts as president was his treatment of
the Veuoziv*Ja.-Uosi’ijfcir r.M*srir4*, That
was in 1895. England, it was charged, j
was encroaching on Venezuela and
threatened the appropriation of a large
and valuable territory. Cleveland went
to the rescue of the republic, and, at
the risk of war with England, forced
an arbitration of the question at is
sue. England was belligerent and Eu
rope frowned savagely, but the fellow
citizens of the president were wildly
enthusiastic in his support.
Mr. Cleveland being the only dem
ocratic president since the civil war 1
was greatly beloved in the south. Soon
after leaving the white house in 1898,
he established his family in a comfor
table home at Princeton, N. J. He had
a fortune ample for his needs. Ap-1
parently he had no further ambition
for public office, and he settled down
in peace and contentment to enjoy the
declining years of his life.
Time softened the enmity of those
who had been arrayed against him,
and so he gained the good will of the
great mass of Americans. His deliv
erance on any public question was re
ceived by them with the deepest inter
est. He wrote occasional articles for
various periodicals. Some of the
themes to which he gave attention
were: “Integrity of American Char
dt,LOI , aUIDBIUU Ui OJAM L aUU UUL’
door Life," “Woman's Mission and Wo
man’s Clubs,” "Word Concerning Rab
bit Hunting,” “Would Woman's Suf
frage Be Unwise?” "Citizens' Duty,"
“Independence of the Bxeoutive,”
"Word to Fishermen,” and “Word for
Forestry."
The only occasion on which h9 left
his retirement was in response to a
call that he assist in bringing order
to one of the companies involved in
the New York insurance scandal.
It seems poor and trite to say that
that a long life of usefulness and hon
or comei to a close by the death of
Grover Cleveland. The news flashed
from Princetcm chilled the heart of
thousands of devoted followers who
have looked upon him for years as the
one supreme and uncompromising
exemplar of democracy as it was
taught by the fathers of the requblic
—the strongest, ablest, sanest of them
[all.

BEGGAR TYPES. I
--
The Blind Man Whose Helper Has
a Big Voice—Small Boy
and Note.
One beggar known to many New
Vorkers is a blind man who visits
downtown saloons and restaurants in
tow cl' a man who not only has his
sight but a huge, beefy voice into
the bargain. The blind man carries
pencils theoretically for sale.
The custom of thi9 pair is to
pause at the entrance to the plai'j
they are working, while the man
with the voice roars. “Gents, please
help a poor blind boy by buying rrom
aim."
That gets the attention of all, and
if the two are not put out at once
they get to work. It is to be noticed
that the blind man rarely offers any
•pencils in return for what is dropped
■into his palm.
At the end of the tour they line
tip at the door again, both this time
saying: "Thank you, gents. God bless
you.” and go out.
A Brooklyn flat dweller recently
opened his door to a timid knock and
tound at it a small boy, who asked
If he might see the "lady of the
house.” The man constituted him
n — 1 O i 1-. .. x n .. t k mI * ,r f am a mnmont o n (I
asked what was wanted.
• The hoy handed him a note, *eat
ly enough written, but rather worn,
as If by use. “Please help my boy
with a little money. We are cold,
and he is getting some money to buy
coal. I am his mother, but I am too
•ick to move," read the note, which
was signed with a name and an ad
dress.
The Brooklyn man was unable to
figure out whether it was the boy’s
private enterprise, a regularly estab
lished begging plant or a deserving
case. He took a chance on the last.

Asia and the Golden Rule.
The western powers have insisted
on equality for all missionaries and
others who may go to China. Yet
they claim the right to bar all Orien
tals at pleasure. This attitude, pre
vails everywhere. It is illogical, un
fair and opposed to international law
and comity. It is up to tae western
nations to follow the golden rule in
their treatment of and attitude to
ward Orientals. If they persist noth
ing but brute force can make their
position respected or respectable. And
If persisted in the inevitable war will
ccme. The theory of an Interminable
conflict between the west and the
east savors of pessimism and the doc
trinaire. The inevitable increase in
intercourse between the nations will
cause them to be more tolerant and
they will grow to realize that there
is ivuui 011UU5U m iuc wwiu iui cvcij*
body and that war produces Ills In
finitely greater than those designed
to be cured.—Ex-Secretary Olney.
Mahatma is a Sanskrit word, ex
plains the New York American, and
means the man who has retired from
the world and by means of a long and
severe discipline has subdued the pas
; sions and gained a reputation for
: sanctity and knowledge. In India the
. word is applied to certain Buddhist
I saints, or teachers of supposed extra
I ordinary business and wisdom. In
theosophy the Mahatma is one who
has “reached perfection” in each of
his “three natures,” the physical, in
tellectual and spiritual, and, as a con
sequence of this, is in a state of “di
vine enlightenment.”
