Re it ordained by the Mayor and Board of Alderman of the town of Starkville, Mississippi, and it is hereby resolved that it is necessary that side walks in said town on Main Street, from Washington to Jackson Street in said town he improved by making or re building all said side walks with con crete or asphalt, and that all these im provements require outlay and cost in excess of the general improvement fund. Sec. a. Further, that said side walks shall be extended along each side of Main Streflf from Washington to Jack son Streets, commencing at the south boundary of Main Street and extending \)}4 feet north, and commencing on the north boundary of Main Street and ex tending feet south, thus making the side walks 9 feet wide. All the above) side walks on Main Street shall bemad 5 and composed of concrete or asphalt of standard quality and thickness and laid in workman like manner. Each owner shall so construct his or her part of said side walks so as to make its surface of as near uniform grade as practicable and to see that the outer edges of his or her part of said walk corresponds in giade will) tiiat section of the said side walk adjoining it, the object being to have these side walks on Main Street jrom Washington to Jackson Streets of as near sainq grade as practicable, so as to prevent sudden rises or falls in the degree. Sec. 3- Further, that each owner of land, which land is situated in said town between Washington and Jackson Streets and bordering on and abutting said Main Street shall, within twenty davs after this ordinance takes effect, make and build that portion of all said side walks immediately adjoining and abutting his or her said lands, at his or her own expense and without cost to the said town. Sec. 4. Further that should any owner of any of said abutting lands not build that part of said side walks im mediately abutting and adjoining his oi lier lands within the twenty days afore said. from the time this ordinance be comes operative, then said town will have that part of said side walk made and built at the expense of said owner, under Sections 3011 and 3012, Code 1892 and special assessments will be made therefor, and lien declared and en forced on the abutting land, as required in said sections of the code. The within and foregoing ordinance was presented at a public meeting, read and considered by sections, a motion was made to adopt the said ordinance which resulted as follows: Mayor J. O. Gunn; Aldermen, J. J. Dennis, Max Stern, Simon Friend, A. B. Harrington and W. F. Pierce: all voting aye. Thereupon said ordinance was declared adopted. We believe, says the Aber deen Examiner, that Mississippi is the only state in the union where the courts are absolutely open to all comers, from the lowest to the highest, without securities for costs in criminal cases. This results in an enor mous number of appeals, partic ularly in capital cases, and delay iu execution in almost every in stance of death sentence, but we would not have it otherwise if we could . But this fact of gen eral appeal from trial courts im poses much greater labor upon our supreme bench than that of any other state, and emphasizes the demand that the tribunal be increased from three to five jus tices, The work has grown to be more than equal to the endu rance of any three competent men.

The two games of ball between Winona and Starkville at the Park this week were interesting, the one yesterday being a “hair raiser,” Winona winning in the ninth by scoring three runs. The game this afternoon will be beauty. Don't fail to see it. Winona Times. Federal Judge Niles found himself in a hard position the other day while holding court in Meridian. Two small boys were arraigned before him on the charge of pilfering the mails. The lads were but youngsters and their only plea was youth and ignorance. The pleadings and ted,rs of the young accused found a way to the heart of Judge Niles, however, and with words of kind advice he let the boys go on their promise of good behavior. We sometimes think that if we had more judges like this one we would have fewer criminals. So often mere stripplings are dealt with exactly as they were hardened criminals, and just this very treatment tears out all that is good in the boy, and he be comes what some people expect and almost force him to be. The boy must be treated as a boy, even though he be charged with crime. He needs admoni tion and directions, and not the heartless treatment that he too often receives from the bench and from the public in general. —Laurel Chronicle. Coden and Point Clear, Ala.
