Winter feed for stock is some thing iu which every man wh< has stock to winter should fee interested. Tnis is the time ol the year to plant it, or soon will be. Green feed is fine. With t short corn crop or without one, farmers should plant barley. II makes fine pasture until spring, when 'the grass comes. A hall acre of rich ground sown in rows and cut and handed out will give several milk cows abundant green feed of the sort. It grows rapidly, being ready to recnt every two weeks.—Picayune. A woman iu a railroad station the other day had a great deal of trouble with one of her children, a boy of seven or eight, and a man who sat near her stood it as long as possible and then observed: “Madam, that boy of yours needs the strong hand of a father.’ “Yes, I know it,” she replied, “but he can’t help it. His father died when he was six years of age, and I’ve done my best to get an other and failed. He can’t have wuiu i can i get. uouia you care to try yourself.” The listener had fled.—Chicago Live Stock World. Once when Senator-elect Mc Creary of Kentucky was out look ing after bis political fences, he stopped before a house where there was a well in the yard and asked for a drink. “Sorry, Aister,” responded the man of the house,” but there ain’t a drop on this place, and I’m get ting purty dry myself.” “Isn’t there auy water in the well*” exclaimed Mr. McCreary. “Of course there is,” blurted out the man; “I didn’t kuow you wauted water. I thought you wanted a drink.” When Ingersoll Wished He Hadn’t The late Robert G. Ingersoll was once “stopped” iu the langu age of the prize-ring, by an old negregs employed on the janitor’s force in the capitol of Washington. She kept her Bible by her when at work, and would stop scrubbing and read until she heard footsteps alojg the corridors, when she would hide the book and begin vigorously to scour the floors. Ingersoll had been watching her, and one morning quietly slipped to her side, when he saw she was reading the Bible. “Mary, do you believe all you read there?” he asked. “Kb’ry word!” “That God made man from dust?” “In cose!” she answered. “Well, Mary, suppose it had rained, and the dust had turned to mud—what then should he have done?” De good Lawd knows ’nuff to know dat’s de time to make lawyers an’ infidels!” As ^Ingersoll turned away he was quoting mentally from Tennyson’s “In Memoriam” “Leave thou thy sister when she prays.”—Ex. Let Him Try IL The influence of Presideut Roosevelt’s recent strenuous utter ances seems to have been folt in Mississippi, for it is now stated Republican party leaders are seri ously considering the advisabili ty of patting out a candidate for Congress in every district in the State. It is true that the inten tion is said to have existed be fore the President’s recent de liverances, but there is no doubt that if that be the case it has been marvelously reinforced by them. Of course, defeat is foredoomed, but the Repnclicau leaders will have the consciousness of having made the fight at least, and that seems to be what the Preideut wants, the fight for the fight’s sake, if uothiug else can be gained from it. A Republican dandidate for Congress in every district of the State this fall will give the Presi dent the opportunity which he has no doubt been longing for—to find out exactly what iuflueuce his policy haa hau ou the situation tu this and other Southern States. It can be predicted with assurance that the result in this Stale will either convince him that he has made a mistake or two with refer I ence to Mississippi ap pointments or that the people are too entirely Democratic to be reclaimed.— Corinthian. BANNER HALVE tha matt m>v» la tha world* ' V What Costs. Remember, my boy, the good things in the world are the cheap , est. Spring water costa less than [ corn whiskey; a box of cigars will > buy two or three Bibles; a gallon of old braudy costs more than a barrel of flour; a full hand at poker often costs a man more in twenty minutes than his church subscriptions amount to in three years; a state electiou costs more than a revival in religion; you can sleep in church every Sunday morning if you are mean enough to deadbeat your lodging, but a nap in a Pullman costs $2 every time. Fifty cents for the circus and a penny for the little ones to put in the missionary box, a dol lar for the theatre and a pair of trousers frayed at the end, baggy at the knee and utterly busted at the dome for the poor; the danc ing lady gets $G00 a week, the city missionary $600 a year; the horse race scoops in $2,000 the first day, the church fair lasts a week, works 2o or 30 of the best women in America to death and comes out $40 in debt.—Bob Bur dette. Negro Divorce Problem. The negro diVorce question is now engaging serious considera tion of the students of the race problem in Mississippi, and thus far no solution of its perplexities tl A Cl l« A M n • « M .1 DUBbVOVVUl The wholesale increase of im morality among the members of the race has caused a correspond ing increase of divorces among that still very large class of ne groes who maintain sufficient self respect to observe the marriage laws. A striking instance of this alarmiug increase is shown in a statement made bv Chancellor Longstreet, of Grenada, who has granted during his two-year in cumbency of the chancellorship over nine hundred divorces aud turned down over three hundred petitions for divorce. Of these 1,2000 cases, fully ninety-five per cent were negroes. The habit of the male negro in Mississippi to take unto himself a wife in the Spring when lie needs help in planting his cotton crop and abandoning her in the fall when the picking season is over accouuts for a large percentage of the divorce petitions. Tbe record of Chancellor Longstreet’s court is very small as compared with that of the chancery courts of the Delta where the negro population is the overwhelming majority.— Clarion-Ledger. The Power Of A Hand. The States reprints this waif from a forgotton exchange for the beauty of sentiment and strength of morality contained in it. its tender sentiment will recall power fully the blessed recollection of the past to tnauy a man whose hair is tinged with grey, and it will, maybe, bring a moment’s pleasing reflection to some whose lives have loug been cold and cheerless- To those who still enjoy the inestimable boon of a living, sympathetic mother its perusal ought to incite the liveli est gratification. The clipping is as follows: “What memory of your boy hood days exerted the strongest influence for good in your life?” 1 asked this question of a man past 40, whose record has been so clean and wholesome that 1 was curious to know what secret, if any, lay beneath tne calm serenity of his common every day experi ence, says an exchange. “The memory of mother’s hand upon my knee,’’ was the quick reply. “When a restless little boy in church I pitched about up on the high, uncomfortable seat, mother Used to lay her hand gently upon my knee, aud whisper: “only a little longer dear. Keep quiet a little longer, for mother's sake.” “Somehow the pressure of her soft hand always soothed me; and ofteu I would go to sleep, andl, on wakiug, find it still there. (l'he years that have slipped by ; rince then have been fraught with 1 rials and temptations, and the patli of duty has been hard and diffi< suit, yet there never has beeu a time when the memory of that .soft touch upon my knee, in the old home church, has not been lilce a clasp.of steel to keep my feet j from wandering into by paths of sdn.” There w§re tears in the old man’s eyes, and his lips^juivured, as he continued : “And now that she is no longer living, the memo ry of that touch is still more po tent. I feel that, for mother’s sake, I must still keep my daily actions blameless.”—New Orleaus States. A Great Developer. The Meridian Star contains the following which is strictly in line with the facts of the ease: ‘•If the Illinois Central railroad had a country as rich in soil, re sources and populated by as enter prising people as are found in the counties of east and southeast Alisssssippi, what a wonderful change would have taken place along the line of that road. And if the east and southeast counties had as liberal a railway company supporting the people what a more marvelous transformation would be noted in a few years Ilaviug no company capitalized at millions of dollars to lend in the movement, the people must get together aud do their own capitalizing. That done, the larg est and greatest of railways will toss sweets this way and ask for an occasional smile from the queen cities that nestle in the hills of this section.” The Illinois Central railrord is the greatest developer that Missis sippi has. It has done more for the section of the country through which it ruus than any one factor iu the state. Its policy has been uroaa ana mierai, ana wnen it saw an opportunity to benefit the people it did not hesitate to take advantage of it. That portion of Mississiapi through which this road runs has felt the quiekeBing power of its broad and liberal policy. It has seen the effects of its intelligent and effective pro moting. There is certainly no railroad corporation in the south which can compare with the Illinois Ceutral in this respect. It is head and shoulders above any of them. It has worked with intelligence and presistency, and its labors have been productive of a great deal of good.—Jackson News. Kings That Never Have Been Crowned. King Christian of Deumnrk, father of Queen Alexandria, baa ruled almost almost forty years— 1853—and has yet to be crowned. He was proclaimed King from the palace of Christianborg. The new King of Italy has uot been cx’owned, and if Victor Em manuel follow the example of his father, Humbert I, he never will be. This is the more Btrange as the crown of Italy and the Iron Crown of Lombardy-is the most ancient and historic crown in the world. The iron part of it, which ia hiddeu almost completely i __ in gold and jewels, is said to have been made of nails from the cross on which the Savior was crucified, and the gold was laid on for the protection of the precious metal. In it* present shape the crown dates from 395. It was ou3 of the most valued possession of the Emperor Constantine. It crowned the Lombard Kings. The last two occasions on which it was used for coronation purposes was in 1838, when Napoleon, who had carried it off to Paris, made the Pope crown him with it in the Cathedral of Notre Dame and in 1838, when Eredinand [ of Austria was crowned with it at Milau. Its last publicappeatauce was on the bier of the assassinated Hum bert, two years ago. It is said that threats of force had to be made to the priests who have in charge the Iron Crown before they would allow it to be placed on the coffin. Significantly enough, the Sul tan of Turkey prefers to be in vested with a sword instead of a crown upou his accession. thesterville.
