JOHN HARTLEY, Mgr. Tupleo, Miss Town Creek. Our famous old creek which has been uoted since the days of De Soto, has|outdone herself this year and furnishes many evidences that the.'alluvial soil that spreads out for several miles in width is capable of producing ns ranch to the acre as the valley of the Nile or the boasted Mississippi bottom. Mr. R. M. Martin gathered 62£ bushels of corn to the acre. Allis Reese planted about three acres of cotton broadcast and never plowed or hoed it, and will gather nearly two bales from the crop. On 53 acres planted in cotton, Mr. Reese gathered 84 bales. -y » - The last legislature which pro vided a personal assesment this year, took a very wise step, the statement coming from the auditor that an expense of $34,000 the State has thus increased its reve nue $138,000. Had personality valnes been given in to the asses sors at anything like their actual values this sum would easily have been doubled, and the total increase for the year have been within a few hundred dollars of twenty million.—Meridian Evening Star.

The Grand Mas ter and Deputy Grand Master of the Grand Council were in attend ance and quite a number of visit ors. Sickness prevented attendance of Grand Lecturer and some other Grand Officers, therefore the elect ed Assembly of the Grand Council of Mississippi was not held, all the works being performed by the local Council. Among the visitors were : Com panions J. A. Mearne, Ripley, \V. A. Bodeuhamer, Okolona, L. C. Prather, Baldwyn,W. H. Cliftou, Aberdeen, Jno. S. Cobb, Verona, Dr. S. C- Cullens, Wallerville, C. S. Cullens and S. J. Owen, New Albany, all of whom are expert craftsmen. Visitors in attendance were about fifty in number. The Super Excellent Masters degree will be comferred by Tupe lo Council at some subsequent date and it is expected that the work in that degree will exceed in Masonic beauty and excellence anything of the kind in the Grand •Tnriadir>finn Mieaiasinni L t Evidences have been discovered in Pike County, this Sta te, which prove that the mysteries of mason ry were kuown and practiced by the Indians in this country before the white man came. A white man of unquestionable veracity is said to have plowed up from an Indian mound a piece of stone bearing Masonic emblems. This piece of stone has been examined by an eminent Mason and he pro-" nounces the carving to have been done by one versed in the teaching of Masonry. Masonry is know,, to have been practiced from time immemorial, but this is the first evidence of its having been in practice among the Indians. It will be of interest to the craft to know that the American Indians were brother Masous.—-Newton Tribune. v TEA cures Dyspep I HMHVI9 sis, Constipation and Indi gestion. Regulates the Liver.

Washington, Nor. 17.—Several delegations pledged to Mr. Hanna are likely to appear at the next meeting of the Republican nation al convention as a result of the president’s fight against the organ ization of the white Republican party at the south. a i .’i. __ _i . p i ? a UiUVCUiCUt 19 UU LUUt IU oertain of the southern states to fight Mr. Roosevelt and his boom for the presidency by turning the support of the Lily Whites to Mr. Hanna. The White Republ icans through out the south are in earnest, it is said' in their purpose to form a white man’s party, with a view to attracting persons who hitherto have held aloof on account of the negro question. The attitude of Mr. Roosevelt, Payne and Clarkson has severely injured their movements, and de prived them of federal patronage. They intend to keep up the fight regardless of this state of things, and as they control the party oaganization in their states they cau afford to fight the administra tion in any way they may happen to see proper. Longino's Heavy Load. Kincanuon, Longy aud several of their friends met at New Orleans last Wednesday acci dentally on purpose and had a conference. Just what the nature of that conference was has to be guessed at in a measure, but guess work is as good as any when it hits right. Kincanuon is to be a candidate for governor while the present governor will stand for United States senator. The New Orleans papers got on to the racket aud let the cat out of the bag. If the people of this State want Kincannou for Governor they can elect him, and, our word for it, he would make as good governor as any we naye had since the days of J. M. Stone. And Longy would make a very accept able senator, if he were able to make the landing; but iu this he will be very much handicapped. He has too much of a load. In fact, he is loaded to the guard rails and he must unload or sink. He has the Democratic party on one shoulder . and a. part of the Republican party on the other, and the load is getting to be a little too heavy for one man to carry at the same time net as real estate agentjfor corner lots. Still, Longy would make as an accept able senator as any of them and would draw his pay with prompt ness and dispatch.—Hattiesburc Progress, in i mm mim n ii. !■ Verona.

Dur ing bra residence in Tupelo be has made many friends who will ex f tend to him and the woman of his johoioe a most oordial welcome. H. T. Rogers. The friends and relatives here were greatly pained to receive the sad intelli gence last Saturday morning of the leath during the previous night of Mr. 11. T. Rogers at his home in Shannon. 3nly a few weeks since he was in Tupelo md was enjoying at that time his ac mstomed health and his early death :ame as a sad blow. Mr. Rogers had seen sick for two weeks but Lis eon lition did not cause grave apprehension from his physician and family, and the sudden change for the worse found them unprepared to meet the great sorrow which his derth brought into the happy home. Henry T. Rogers was born in Harda way, Ala. in 1851. With his parents he moyed to Lee county while a small boy and since tha* time has made his home here, formerly at Verona, but ten years Hgo be moved to Shannon, where he has since resided. His school boy darn were spent at the old academy at Verona, which numbered among its pupils so many of the best citizens of TI* __ . , i ■ 1 dvmvc **in v-uuiw; ni tciiuui m an marked by assiduous work and his de meanor was such as to draw his fellow schoolmates and teachers. Leaving the academy lie entered Emory and Henry College, Ya. while that famous institution was under the presidency of Dr. E. E Wiley. His record at college was marked by the same conscientious regard.. for bis obligations to lmuself, his parents, teachers, and associates. Alter leaving college lie was married to Miss Eva Weir of Carrolton, Ala., a lady of refinement and culture, the union was blessed with several children In his home life were displayed these elements of character that make a mail a true, devoted husband, an affection ate. solicitous and considerate father; he was as gentle in his manner as a woman, but ready to meet any demand for the protection and support of h s loyed ones. As a citizen he measured up to the full stamiard, assuming the responsibility of citizenship in the full sense of the term. He was patriotic, liberal and public spirited- On every public question there was never a doubt as to where he stood; the side that stood for morality.support of the lav e, advancement of the public good, found in him at all times a champion of th ir cause. As a Christian be was devout and lay at the feet of the Master he trusted, a consecrated life. In his ob ligation to his church, the Methodist Kniurnnitl KmifK u-tiw.k ___ . j ■ & -> — — — •• V wum\ I vu himseir with in early life, he was coi se-. crated, and his daily life was an obs< v ance of its ordinances and the prni •© of the golden rule- He was a stew d for many years and devoted his tone and means to the support and advm e ment of his church and the clnis-inn religion. As a friend, he was loyal un der all circumstances and no man ever found in him any element but sincerety and devotion to his friends. The funeral services were conducted Sunday morning from his late residence, being conducted bv Rev. S. A. Brown, his pastor, assisted by Rev. Leech of Okolona. The pall bearers were niem bersofthe Woodmen of the World, of which order he was a member. The many friends present attested *he great popularity of deceased. In the death of Air. Rogers, the com munity in which he lived, has lost one of its best citizens; his church a com;©, crated member, his family an honored, affectionate, tender husband and father To the bereaved we extend our he iet felt sympathy in their d^vd loss, a sor row which brings to the heart of the writer that grief which comes from the 'W^beltMd *1'001 hfie8fc*e,n®^ ** 0Qe 9*
