A. Pearson, who is in Kansas City with Mrs. Pearson who is there for medical treatment, tells us that the weather there is the coldest ever known iu the history of this country; that the thermoßU eter, at one time, registered 20 below zero, and that in Kansas coal is $-10,00 per ton. Mr. Pear son sends us seveial interesting dippings frotp Kansas City papers regarding the cold weather, one of which we reproduce below- Y our idea com f ort thege eokl nights probably includes a warm room, a soft, warm bed with comforts and blankets tucked so snugly about you that you can hardly breathe. Then happy dreams. But one does not need to have all that to have happy dreams or to be happy. A floor or bench for a bed and enough warmth to keep the temperature fairly high is a combination that is as good as any. Ask hundreds of men on ihe North. Side, They have been sleeping in offices, hallways and on chairs and tables iu the lodging houses on the North Side. And they are happy to have even such accommo dations. The fr mt room of the Swan House, 528 Main Street, at night resembles a sheep fold, with the men lying so closely together that not a hand could be passed be tween. Last night fifty men slept on the floor of the room, which is about thirteen feet square. In the center of the room are some small pine tables; men sleep beneath them and two men lie on the table. Propped up in each corner of the room a man is sitting like a guard. To pass from one part of the room to another it is first necessary to ask the men in the way to sit up to give you foot room. A late coiner carefully crawls in between two sleepers and uses half of each for his bed. But no one complains. The sleeping places are furnished free and the men are thankful for what they get. At the Cozy House on East Third Street, at the Fox Hotel on Main Street and at other lodging houses the same rules prevail. But in all of the houses, even though the beds are hard, there is one advant | age. Large coal stores are in the room and these are gen arally kept nearly at a red heat. “These are the happiest men I ever saw,” one of the proprietors said. “One out of twenty, per haps, knows whore he is to eat breakfast, but that doesn’t matter. If ever the Scriptural injunction— ‘Therefore take no thought, saying what shall we eat? or, what shall avc drink? or whatwithal shall we be clothed? * * * Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof’ —was literally followed, it is fol lowed here.'’ More About the StarkviKe Church. To the Church People of the Diocese:—The letter from Capt. J. C. Purnell which appears in this issue suggests in definite and con crete form a solution of the problem of the completion of the Starkville Church. If the Diocese will only lay the matter seriously to heart, the church can be finished before the elds? of the current session. There is no question of our ability to fin ish tliis church. It is p m' 1 " „ question of Nation If "the .-MOCQ3O. Aviii* finish dr, it will be finis hen. ItfM than the $£ a handsome automobile will complete a church which means more to the Diocese than any Mission Chiihch in its bounds. 1 belief e among those whom God has blessed with an abundance of this world’s goods that there are in Mississippi twenty people who can and will give SIOO.OO each. I believe that there are twenty people who Could spare $50.00 each for this cause. I be lieve that there are twenty people who could spare $25.00 each for this cause; that there are twenty who could give SIO,OO each. Surely there are twenty who could give &3.00 each and 100 who - uld give SI.OO each. - if thou hast much give plente ously; if thou hast little, do thy diligence gladly to give of that little.” STARKVILLE CHURCH BUILDING FUND Ain’t previously acknowledged $3,730 00 Miss Anna H.Bauks, Columbus 6 00 Mrs. Banks, Columbus. 10 00 Mrs. Jennie G.

Woman, 80, Seek Fortune In the West. San Francisco, Jan. 13.—Abner Hammond, aged 92, and his wife, who is 80, arrived in San Francisco yesterday from Lyons, Wayne county, N. Y., “seeking new op portunities.” The ferry station Avas stormed AA’ith the rush of commuters as the aged adventurers got off the boat and they were caught in the croAvds. “I did not think there would be so many people out here,” said Mr. Hammond. He carried his earthly belongings in a battered suit case and “mother” clung to his hand. “We wern’t getting on very well,” he said, “and Ave thought we’d come out here and get into something. We had $l5O in the bank hut it took it all to get out here. I know a man in Los An geles and I guess he can give ns some advice if we can get down there, I’d like to have a little farm.” The travelers’ aid department of the San Francisco Young Women’s Christian Association will assist the aged couple in their journey to Los Angeles.

Too much Reno fever haß been Democracy’s undoing. Mary Garden hasn’t given her opinion as to the towel-gown. A good trust would b© to entrust Woodrow with the presidency. Most every new leaf we turn over says “please send the cash.” A baby carriage is the successful baud wagon for those in double harness. some people are foolish enough to believe that others take their advice. In a cold room on a dark after noon a fellow feels just as little as he really is. Atwood contends that it is easy to fly across the Atlantic, but it is also easy to jump off of a house. Hen-pecked husbands and bach elors are in the same class. Wo men scorn them both. The garb which Moua Lisa Wore when she disappeared would indi cate that she is faring badly in the cold elements these days. No permanent value may be put upon a marriage license. It may be worth much to one man and little to another. Many of the charity deeds never get to the ear of the public, but real charity does not need public approval. Rather a hard job to decide which is the most dangerous, the Teddy boar, the Russian bear, or the grizzly bear. There’s a young lady in town who says she gets mad if men stare at her and gets mad if they don’t, But that’s one reason women are so interesting. Dr. Wiley says every girl ought to know how to boil eggs. Well and good, but the doctor forgot to give the recipe for making the stubborn hens lay the eggs. Mrs. Tom Thumb is the smallest woman in the world. We speak now of stature and weight. Un fortunately there are others smaller than she when it comes to being womanly women. An Illinois court holds that a bulldog s a deadly weapon. This we admi , but it is strange that a bulldog likes to attack a fellow in the locality where he usually carries a pistol. vSe\eral bills have been intro duced in both houses of the Legis lature looking to the repeal modifi cation of the County Attorney law. To repeal this law would betaking a backward step in law enforce ment, It might be well to so modi fy the law as to make it optional with the Board of Supervisors, whether or not it was best for their several counties. —Okolona Mess enger. When a woman wants to marry a man she frequently—we had al most said usually— accomplishes her purpose. If it suits her, as it generally does, to compel him to make the formal proposal, she knows how to accomplish that pur pose, too. Leap year, in that re spect, is a humbug. Asa matter of fact, it has no significance at all. It is a makeshift to correct, in a clumsy way, an error in the accep ted calendarj-yfew York Times. Bi’hop Bratton Coining. Bishop Theo.
