Board »f Uatnl Praceedigi.
The board of oontrol has render
ed its “distinct disapproval’’ of the
acts of the warden, as charged,
bnt finds nothing in the charges
“to justify his discharge.” He
wa# acquitted bat warned not to
do auy more. Commissioner
Kincannon dissented to this dis
posal of the case. He moved the
exclusion of the warden’s explana
tion of the questionable trans
actions as alleged, ‘‘for the reason
that the warden was guilty of false
swearing while a witness.”
It is needless to say that such
an outcome, with its attendant
incidents, is mortifying to the
publio certainly, and the board,
probably. Joined with the un
savory “irregularities” shown
against Warden Parcbman in the
costly legislative investigation, the
whole, an unprofitable investment
to the state. And the Herald can
but think that, after exonerating
him, it would be far better in the
board to invite his resignation,
than re-elect him for another term.
And this course, according to our
Jackson letter, has been adopted
by the board majority.
In tbe Clarion-Ledger's account
of this meeting of the board of
control we find the following:
Considerable spirit was injected
into the proceedings, which were
held behind'closed doors, not even
the secretaries being permitted to
be present, and some of the re
marks made, it is understood, were
qnite salty.
The board may have good
reasons for “proceeding behind
closed doors,” but they are not
apparent. The Herald, certainly,
can conceive of no service to the
public interest in such secrecy iu
the disposition of a public matter.
Aud there are decided and ap
parent objections to such n custom,
especially in the prevalent atmos
phere of suspicion and criticism
that the board hat become the
centre of. At the last previous
meeting of the board, when the
state form leasiug for the ensuing
year was disposed of, open dooVs
would have been better. Then
the public would have known by
what rule of selection the three non
political owners were dropped from
the list of lessees, and the four
with influential positions, or con
nections, were retained. Only
behind closed doors could this
result baye beeu effected in man
ner as talked of.
The decision of the board, The
Herald has been informed, as to
the choice of plantations to be re
tained, was reached thus: One of
the members moved to retain the
plantations with the best showing,
pecuniary, to their credit. This
was certainly a good way to best
serve the state’s interest, and at
the same time avoid any nppear
ance of favors aud pulls. It was
objected to by oue of the other
members, for the reason that he
had already pledged his support,
aud that he excepted to any play
of politics at his expense. After
some discussion the motion to
renew the leases that had been
most profitable was rejected, and
every member was left free to
• t • m «• •
pmy iiib uwu gnuie ul politics.
Two of the three farms that were
giyen up were the most profitable,
and one of those chosen exhibited
an actual loss. This statement is
made on information believed to
be reliable. If, however, there is
any member of the board who de
sires to specifically deny, or affirm,
its accuracy, the columns of The
Herald nre at hie service. But the
point is, that had the farm leasing
been disposed of publicly, the
proceedings wonld have neither
warranted, nor admitted of, such
reports and allegations.—Vicks

Dill Arp appears to be losing
the strong philosophic strain, that
has threaded and given zest to his
writings. He rails out against
“the black rascal who came into
my back yard last night and stole
ray grindstone.” There is a text
of encouragement in the theft, by
a son of Ham, of a working im
plement, instead of a hen or a hog.
It marks industrial aspiration.—

Thank God (or Orphans.
We have a thousand things to
thank God for.
Bat did you ever thank Him
for the privilege of earing for
orphan children!
It is a privilege. Every Orphan,
age is His special care. He is
the God of the Fatherless. He
blesses those who bless His little
Let Jew and Gentile, Protestant
and Catholic alike nse Thanks
giving day for the blessed privi
lege of helping the little ones of
the great King.
At the Thornwell Orphanage,
Clinton, S. C. there are two hun
dred of these orphans, the little
brothers and sisters of the great
company of loving hearts. Their
parentage represent every denomi
nation of the Church; orphans of
Masons and Odd Fellows, Knights
of Honor and Pythians, are in
the rank of little ones; they come
from every Southern State and
some Northern ones. No agent
is in the field begging for their
support; the Church sets apart no
special day for collections. Who
soever will may help and in any
suitable way.

A Kentucky Courtship.
“Doc” Brown, of Morgansfield,
who represents his district in the
State Legislature, is one of Ken
tucky’s unique characters. To il
lustrate a point in a recent speech
he gave the following account of
his courtship: “Tak i my advice
aud never give a woman anything
she can’t eut, aud never make love
to her out of au ink bottle. Why
when I courted my wife, I just
grabbed her and said: ‘Sallie,
you are the sweetest thing on
earth, and your beauty baffles the
skill of man aud subdues his fero
cious nature,’ and I got her.”—
Louisville Commercial.
lo Drive Away Mosquitoes.
As the affectionate mosquito
still lovingly lingers in Grenada,
we copy from an exchange the
following timely prescription:
“Throw a bit of alum about the
size of a mar ble into a bowl of
water and wet the hands, face and
exposed parts with it. Not a
mosquito will approach you. They
will hunt about a little aud dis- <
appear I have never used a mos
quito curtain, and I am glad to
think that I can, perhaps, bene
fit others by this information.”
That Bear Hunt.
The associated Press insists that
Teddy is going to take a bear hunt
in Mississippi, notwithstanding
the fact that be has given notice
to Gov. Longino that it will be
impossible for him to come. No
body, in this state, who is any
body, feels aggrieved because Ted
dy has^-changed his mind. The
respectable people of Mississippi
cordially invite him to stay away.

It was a New York and not a
Mississippi mob that made such a
determined effort to lynch a negro
for attempted familiarity on the
street with a white girl. After all
doesn’t the only difference between
the mobs of the two sections lie in
the fact that the Southern mob
usually deliyers the goods? In
both a like cause produces a like
desire. Anglo-Saxon blood is not
a matter of geography.—Louis

There are two things a man
should never worry over—those
he can’t help and those he can
help. If he can help it, he ought
to do it without any worry. If he
can’t help it, he ought to be ex
cused.—Eufaula Times.

Silver Shield Lodge,
Iso. 5355, G. U. O. of O. F.,
Tupelo, Miss., Nov., 10th, 1902.
We as colored citizeus of the
the City of Tupelo and members
of the G. U. 0. of O. P. of Ameri
ca, wish to state through the
columns of the Journal in regard
to some of the escaped convicts,
who are possibly thought to be
members of this Lodge that those
who were members were promptly
expelled and published in our quar
terly circular and the O. P. Week
ly Jourual of Philadelphia, as fol
lows .
Will Logau, fugative from jus
tice; John Gray, fugative from
justice; Tom Whiteside, convicted
of grand larceny; Jake Ledbetter,
convicted of grand larceny. Lou
is Dillard and Will James were
not members of the order and no
one of the above can pose any
where in America, Canada, West
India Islands or Africa as Odd
Fellows, as every Lodge is com
rpelledto take this Journal and
quarterly circular, so every Lodge
is kept posted, and we are under
strict orders not to aid or assist
any one of the above character.
We do this as we fear some of our
white frieuds might entertain the
idea that we were implicated in
aiding these convicts to escape
the justice which they so richly
deserve. We are always glad to
get rid of such characters for we
dou’t need them and the better
class of our people don’t need
them and if the white people can
use them, all right. The intent of
this Order is to make better people
of us and not to cover up crime or
tolerate it in the least and we hope
that the good white citizeus of
Tupeio will not look upon us in
that light.
