My Dear Mr. Kincannon: You will please change the ad ■ drees of my copy of Tupelo Jonr ' nal from Shannon, Miss., t< Llano, Texas. The dear old Journal, at hoim or abroad, I would be lost indeec without it, and especially so now , when I am a stranger in a strange ' land, something over a thousand miles from home, it will indeed 1 seem like a sweet messenger oi love from dear old Mississippi * On the morning of 21st, of Oct., a party of four of us, Mr. Charles A. Roberts and wife of Nettleton, ray daughter, Ethel, and myself of Shannon, left Nettleton over the Frisco for this place. At Mem phis we were met at the train by Mr. J. J. Goodrich, District Pas senger Agent, whose kindness I 'rendered our trip much easier. He had made all arrangements and had our tickets ready, so all that we had to do was to step from one car to another. Mr. F. M. Gulffith was also kind in assisting us. We came over the Choctaw’ to South McAlister, I. T. This line passes through some very beauti ful scenery. We cross the Arkan sas river just before entering Little Rock. On this side of Lit tle Rock for ever so many miles the road is right on the bank of the riyer and it is indeed lovely, the river flowing so placid and smooth on one side and the Rockey cliffs towering so high you can scarcely see the tops on the other. At South McAlister the Pullman was taken up by the M. K. & T.. so the only change after leaving Memphis, we made at Elgiu, Tex as where our train was again awaiting us, from there to Llano, a distance of of about one hundred and forty miles, we rode on car, whose engine was run with oil from the Beaumont wells, it is very nice and clean and you can put your head out of car window to view the lovely scenery without fear of cinders in your eyes. From Waco to Austiu our trip was rendered exceedingly pleasant by the General Superinteudaut of the Road’s private car beiug at tached to our train with Admiral Schley as its honored guest. The General Supenntendant took the ladies on the sleeper, liye of us, in and introduced us to the Admiral, he shook hands and talked to each one of us. He is quite pleasant and genial. From there to Austin we were met at every station by throngs of people, horses and Vehicles of every description, the Oil mill whistles blew, the bells rang, the bands played and the people gave the Texas yell, which of course made thiugs quite lively. The Admiral came out on the plat form every time and made a little talk to tbe e.rnwH At Austin tlio people turned out en masse to meet the Admiral and his Lady. They had the millitary drill which was Very pretty. After leaving Austin we go up grade very rapid ly. It is rocks, cactus and moun tains and the beautiful- rolling prairies where the laud and sky seem to meet are left in the far distance. We reached Llauo » about eleven o’clock Wednesday night. It is a town of about two thousand inhabitants with some very handsome buildings. The natural sceuery is very beautiful. With the Llauo river dividing the town, spanned by a very hand some bridge, the water falling over rocks in the river produce miniature falls which are very beautiful. The people here are the friendliest I ever met. I have been driving every day since I came in other people’s carriages, they tender you their horse and buggy here same as we would teuder a strauger a driuk of water. The climate seems to be ideal, the most beautiful skies and suushine I ever saw, it seems to me the skies of Italy could hardly surpass it in loveliness. But with all of its beauties our hearts turn back to Mississippi, dear old Mississip pi, how much we love you we do not realize until we leave you. Yours sincerelf Mbs. Nimmie Mabby.

Along the eastern boundry o Mississippi, great, deposits of iron ■ coal and limestone have been dis ■ covered and a million dollar com > pany is preparing to develop them In the same field petroleum, sur passing in quality the best produc of Pennsylvania, has also beei found, and it is believed that th< wells now being constructed wil surpass the Beaumont field. In the southern section of th< state we have the finest forests ol pine timber in the world, and t deep water harbor on the gulf oi Mexico that promises to be the greatest lumbsr export city of the world. During the past few years the lumber industry has grown tc immense proportions and millions of dollars have been brought inte the state. Thriving towns anc cities have sprung up like magie and the^hum of industry and ac tivity is heard on all sides. In Yazoo county, immense beds of iron ore are reported and along the bluffs to the nurth mineral phosphates are found in ahnnd ance. In the great delta section of the state, the people are just awaken ing to the realization of the value of the finest hard wood timber belt in the world and many thousands of dollars are being invested in timbered lands and manufacturing plants to con vert the natural product into articles of merchandise, and mil lions of dollars will be thus dis bursed in a section that is already prosperous as the result of the enormity of its cotton production. Mississippi lies in the very heart of the most resourceful section of of the South, and in the dispensa tion of Providence, to us was given all that is good—nothing that is bad. We have a soil unequalled in fertility; a climate that is a sooth ing balm and a perpetual joy; aud a people that are the acme of per fection in iudustry, hospitality and generosity—educated, intellectual and ambitions; guarding always with zealous care and good name and sublime greatness of a proud commonwealth.—Vicksburg Amer ican. . -- ■ - A Wholesale Slander. The Detroit Free Press, which was once both a prominent aud reputable newspaper, has emerged from its latter-day obscurity by reason of its sneers at the perse cuted Jews of Roumania aud its libels upon the south in the same connection. In a recent editorial The Free Press attacked Secretary Ilay for his appeal to the powers of Europe to protect the Rouiuaniii Jews, as they agreed to do undei the Berlin treaty. The Free Press sneered at the alleged outrages upon these un fortunate victims of Roumanian cruelty in this fashion: “To be sure, the lot of the Roumania Jew is not a happy one, yet they do not, burn him at stake if he is remotely suspected of hav ing committed a crime against society. He has few political privileges, but they do not assnsi uate him when he undertakes tc exercise those few. He has s melancholy social standing, bu1 they do not compel him to ride in Jim Crow cars; they do not refuse to serve him in hotels and restau rants, and they do not lynch him if he grows insistent aud under, takes to assert his lawful privi ledges.” The Detroit Free Press pretends to be a Democratic paper, but we have never seen from the mosl _J *4. *_1 „ IVOBiOOO UIUUUJ CUU U JUU1UH1 V viler slander of the southerr people than is embodied in the positive terms and palpable inti mations of the editorial frou which we have quoted.

It is not to be denied that the avowed attitude of the trusts may too possibly be found to put the in dividual and his rights in a posi tion of peril for which no warrant can be found in the National Con stitution, and much less in natural justice. The logical outcome of the trust system would be the con trol of, at least, all the leading staples of the country by a small minority of monopolies, claiming the profits of our industries in perpetuity and so holding a large proportion of the people in virtual serfdom. It is impossible to deny that, whether intended or not, this is the actual logical significance of the theory, if not of the settled purpose, of the trust movement. Law has ueyer contemplated the possibility of such an organiza tion of monopoly arisiug, and hence statues and probably Con stitution all amendments must be proyided to meet the emergency. Such creation of statutory re straints must be the object of the impending conflict. Can there be much doubt about the solution of this struggle when its significance comes to be well understood by , immense majority threatened by such abuse of industrial power? In a great Nation of free citizens the result must be so inevitable that the end is clearly apparent from the begining; and it, there fore, would be only a reckless in _l lZ_ £ _I I * „ J I_* l l _ 1 _ viiAbam ui pui;uu uiovjuici bu v*v fend the granting of dangerous powers to monopolistic corpora tions against the force of a reso lute public opinion.—N.

Thn man who kills another is apt to shoot beyoud his victim and hit the heart of a mother, a wife, a sister, a dependent child oi somebody who loved the slain even as the slayer loves or is beloved by those who are dear to him. Whnt a shadow a man must bring . upon himself when he slays a bus band and father, the family bread I winner, and thus bows an innocenl I woman in bitter grief and takes ^ from helpless childhood the natural protector of which it evei stands in need. Not for all tin gold in the world nor for all its honors could a brave-minded, tru< ' hearted man consent to do such < ^ thing as this. What unspea.kabh folly it is for ai man to permi k brute anger, aroused over a dif S feience of opinion, to lead him in to murder. It is more than folly It is the entrance to hell.
