Dr. Neesoin arrived at Laurel last week, he having spent some time in New York and other points in the east since his arrival in the United States. He left Ma nilla on April 17, coming home by way of India, Suez canal, Egypt and several of the European coun tries.

Up on the resignation and return of Prof. Welborn to the United States, Dr. Neesoin succeeded to his position.” The marshall of the town of Wesson is at least original in his method of enforcing the law. His record of the past week’s wqjpk shows that he has severely whipped two negro women and run them off the streets because they were loafing, his weapon hav ing been a buggy whip, and two negro men suspected of selling liquor were dealt with in a similar manner. While several instances of whip ping youthful offenders, by order of the courts and usually adminis tered by the parents of the defend ants, have been reported from va rious towns and cities of the state, notably in this city and Vicksburg, the Wesson Marshall is believed to .

Ballots Based on Babies. Miirh is being said and written on the question of female suffrage, and lately one of the wealthiest and most prominent ladies of New York soeletj, Mrs. Belmont, Ims declared in favor of woman’s suf frage, and is making her magnifi cent home the headpuarters for (he advocates of this political idea. Now comes Rev, Father Phelan, a priest and editor of St. Louis, who proposes a plan whereby wo men can vote, Init (lie conditions Hi* Vtdlipr qnusipd and will hardly prove acceptable to the advocates ut female suffrage, 111 the press reports, his plan is as follows: "1 would give every family an additional vote, f (U - every child l>o|-n in it.” said Father Phelan in explanation of his measure. IF a couple has feu children, we would give the family twelve votes. In case the couple agreed politically, we would permit the father to cast the whole twelve votes. If the Couple were divided in their views of politics, we would give the wife her own vote and the votes of all her daughters, and the husband bis own vote and the votes of all his sons. This would give the wo men suffragists all they now de mand and more, but it would dis franchise the childless. It would encourage large families.” The plan suggested would give an enormous vote in the United States, but it would hardly he ac ceptable to either father or mother, and another thing that is to be considered, is that a very large number of the advocates are not married, or if married, have no children. Father Phelan’s plan is to encourage large families, and to this extent, it is commendable, but to make the Stork a political fea ture in the government, would be a feature that the majority of the -\merican people would not favor. It would he had enough to have woman suffrage on any conditions, but to apply the family re)atioy both the hnstyapd and \yiic and al- V-V\ f'v, v V,tc on behalf of children, b,e contrary to the spirit of the constitution, and W’'\ld h V- dflffgefO W fbifttf to mi, dertuke, for if female suffrage is right ut all, it is right without re gard to (he size of the family. Father Phelan states that he ex pects to press his plan before (he Missouri legislature and if it should pass, the voting capacity of the • how me ’ .date would be won derfully and fearfully increased. — Meridian Dispatch.

An Account of Which is Told by One of the Starkville Delegates. One of Hie most enjovable and inspiring features of the B. Y. I‘. I’ encampment at Blue Mountain tins summer was a splendid Tem perance program rendered by the local H. Y. P. V. of Blue Moun tain, the third evening of the en campment. Their president, who by the way, is a hoy only seventeen years old, opened the meeting with scriptural verses, bearing on the woes of in temperance, then called for volun teer temperance verses from the members of the union, a call which was well responded to. He then in a few well chosen words put before the audience the question to be discussed; “The Cigarette” was the sub ject of the first talk, an excellent one, by one of the young men or boys, if you please. It was a very practical talk, putting before us in concise language its effect on man, physically, mentally, morally and socially. The second talk was on Liquors or Alcoholic Drinks, this is con ceded to be one of the worst pha ses of Intemperance, The third was on the “Methods and Progi-css of Inhibition” and was given with such ease and grace; as to attract general attention. Me first told, in ginphic language, how Prohibition originated, and the methods ti r'd m pin ning it along, Imt the most impressive part of it all was when he stepped backward, and brought to :onr view a large map that he had made himself, of our glorious country, the black and white map of the United States, making ns glad with I lie sight of our own South ern states (the most of them) showing up m white, proving con clusively the progress we lm\e made. All three of these young men proved every statement they made, giving their authority and statis tics after each earnest remark. Besides instructing ns along Temperance lines, they made clear to the vast audience assembled there from a number of states, tl e power of Ibe young people and of the individual, developed for good.
