A commission of about ~0 persons, all identified with Sunday school work, and representing the inter national lesson committee, will make a tour of the world in the interest of Bible schools Scientists have often told us that th? human stomach will eventually shrivel until it. will hold less than half as much as it does now. We should thank the beef trust for its efforts in behalf of science. The archbishop of Canterbury, now in his eighty-first year, has been making his annual tour through his province, delivering three or four speeches a day, and otherwise show ing remarkable mental and physical agility for one of his years. Rev. Gustavus Unonius, one of Chi cago’s oldest ministers, is dead. In 1866, while visiting Sweden, he se cured from Jenny Lind a large en dowment, for his church, St. Ansga rius, which has been referred to since then as “Jenny Lind’s church.” Mr. Morgan is understood to mar vel greatly at the public distrust of the steel trust shares. It is strange —strange that people should be re luctant to put their money into a corporation which employs a lunatic at a salary of $1,000,000 per year to furnish sensational reading matter for the civilized world. Rev. David I. Cheney, of Gloucester, X. J.. is known as the "hard-working minister.” He works during the week as a carpenter, and on Sunday preaches the gospel. He went to Gloucester several years ago while president of the Methodist congrega tional conference, and established a church. Later he left the conference and started an independent church. A year ago i>e transferred his church to Camden, where he now conducts services. An edict was issued by the princi pal of the Omaha high school forbid ding the use of mirrors of any kind in school hours. All the students’ lockers were opened and mirrors confiscated. The principal holds that too much time is given to the mak ing of toilets by girls in school hours. He has forbidden the boys to wear sweaters to school and last year he barred shirtwaists and forbade the girls wearing short sleeves or rolling up their sleeves. Lord Kitchener has given many reasons for his conviction that a sol dier should never marry. His latest is that the terrible anguish of offi cers' wives was a proof that, like priests, soldiers ought to be celi bates, Lord Kitchener said this re cently to an officer’s wife, who an swered: “Then you think that my husband ought not to have married me?” To which Lord Kitchener re plied graciously: “Thanks to you, I change my opinion for one case.” VDrl." f‘H t' nn vc _ 80* for the rental of offices used by departments and bureaus. The big gest part of this sum goes to the Stewart building. $142,380. In this former dry goods store are housed numerous executive heads. The de partment of finance alone pays over $87,000 for quarters on six floors. The Park row building gets $79,732. The splendid apartments of the bor ough president cost no less than $31,682, while those of the commis sioner of water supply, gas and (dec tricity cost $23,645. The Rock Island Railroad company has closed a deal for an office in New York city at a price that astonishes the natives. The location is a four story building on the northeast cor ner of Fifth avenue and Thirty-fifth street. The lease has only three years to run and the rental is $12,000 per annum. For the privilege of oc cupying the premises for the next three years at this rate the railroad pays a bonus of $75,000, or $25,000 a year. In other words, its annual rental for the next three years will be $37,000 per annum. The uses of photography are con stantly extending. A western rail road now uses it as a substitute for written reports on construction work. For example, the progress of the work of changing a grade cross ing or building a bridge is photo graphed at stated periods, and the photographs are preserved both as a "record and as illustrations of method. Pictures are also taken of all the resources of the road in the way of material and of every mile of track, showing curves, grades, switches and crossings. Engineers regard the grand canon of the Colorado as atfording one of the greatest fields in existence for the development of electricity from water-power. In addition to the im mense power of the Colorado itself, large stores of energy are available in the smaller streams that leap into the vast chasm. The plan by which the power of the main stream will eventually be utilied is that of “pick ing up” the fall of the river by means of tunnels. About 70 miles north of Williams a fall of 5,000 feet can be found in a^little over a mile. r r ”---- - - * Gen.

The St. Louis city school board has decided to supply free text books to the children of that city. J. II. Bingham, collector of rev enue for Alabama, has been re moved from office, it is claimed, on account of his activity in what is called the lily white movement to exclude negroes from the councils of the republican party. The reply of President George F. Baer of the Philadelphia and Bead ing Coal Company to the charges of President Mitchell of the United Mine Workers, as presented to to the arbitration commission, ignores Mitchell as an official of the union, and suggests that the commission exclude the union from any recog nition iR their conclusions of the matters in dispute. It is stated on the authori ty of a man who has the closest personal and political relations with the Ohio senator that Mr. Hanna will not be a candidate for re-election to the senate; will not, under any combination of condi tions, be a candidate for the repub lican nomination for the presidency in 1904 and will not, if he can pos sibly avoid it, continue as chair man of the republican national committee after the meeting of the republican national convention in 1904. A lone bandit, attired in Indian costume and streaked with Avar paint, held up the village of Oak stranger rode down the main street of the town, tiring right and left through the windows of the busi ness houses. He ordered every one he met to hold up their hands, and when he reached the principal store of the village he entered and rid dled the glass front with bullets. He then helped himself to all the money in the cash drawer and rode out of town. That the anthracite coal-mine owners will resist to the utmost every effort to make the recognition of United Mine Workers of Ameri ca an issue in the arbitration which is now in progress is made evident by the replies to the statement of President John Mitchell of the mi ners’ organization, which has been filed with the strike commission. There are five of these answers, in addition to that of President Baer, and all dwell with especial empha sis and marked unanimity on this point. They also agree in resisting the demands of the miners for an increase of pay for piece work, a reduction of hours for time work and for the weighing rather than measurement of coal. Speaker Henderson will probably be a candidate for the republican nomination for governor of Iowa next fall. Vice Governor Luke E. Wright, of the Philippines, and Gen.

Molineaux was set free by a jury in New York City, after having once been sentenced to death and after spending four years in prison. Molineaux was accused of murdering Mrs. Katherine Adams by forwarding poison through the mails.

The official report of the part tak en by the Mississippi troops in the battle of Buena Vista and Monterey during the Mexican war, in the handwriting of Col. Jefferson Da vis, who commanded the First Mis sissippi regiment on both those memorable occasions, as well as the reports of Col. Davis’ officers, were found a few days ago by the di rector among the State's archives. Few more interesting historical doc uments have been unearthed. Col. Davis thus describes the V shaped formation which contribut ed so largely to the fate of that day: “The Mississippi regiment was filed to the right and fronted in line across the plain. The Indiana regiment was formed on the hank of the ravine, in advance of our right flank, by which a re-entering angle was presented to the enemy. Whilst this preparation was being made, Sergeant-Major Miller of our regiment was sent to Captain Sher man for one or more pieces of artil lery from his battery. “The enemy, who was now seen 10 ue a Douy 01 caparisoned lancers, came forward rapidly and in beau tiful order, the liles and ranks so closed as to look like a solid mass of men and horses. Perfect silence and the greatest steadiness prevailed in both lines of our troops as they stood at shouldered arms waiting the attack. Confident of success and anxious to obtain the full ad vantages of a cross fire at short dis tance, I repeatedly called to the men not to shoot. “As the enemy approached his speed regularly diminished until, when within 80 or 100 yards he had drawn up to a walk and seemed about to halt. A few rifles fired * without orders and both lines then poured in a vollev so destructive that the mass yielded to the blow and the survivors fled. Capt. Sherman having come up with a few field pieces from his battery, followed their retreat with a very effective fire until they had fled be yond the range of his guns.” At the battle of Monterey the Mississippians acquitted themselves with equal distinction. In giving an account of the operations Col. Davis thus refers to the heroism of the late Col. A. K. McClung, who was the first of the attacking party to scale the walls of Monterey: “I cannot omit to mention the gallant bearing of Lieut.-Col. Me Clung. At the storming of the fort he first mounted the parapet and turning to the regiment waved his sword over his head in token of the triumph of our arms. Leav ing him in that position to cheer the men on to further danger it was my misfortune soon after to lose his services. At the fortified stone building he was dangerously wounded.” He refers thus to another Missis sippian: “I must also mention Lieut. Pat terson, who sprang into the open embrasure as Col. McClung mount ed the parapet and fired the first American piece within the works of the enemy.” Of Capt. Downing, of Hinds county, he said: “Capt. Downing, in whom is hap pily combined the qualities of a leader and commander, was severe ly wounded whilst among the fore most cheering his company to the charge.” Normal Institute Closes. Prof. H. A. Dean closed the iuka Normal Institute a few days ago, refunding in cash all the amounts paid for board and tuition to pu pils.

Chancellor Adam Byrd of the Sixth Chancery district, has pre sented his resignation to Gov. Lon gino, to take effect February 1.

Vuoo-MtnlHlppI Hoard. The official proceedings of the Oc tober meeting of the Yazoo-Missis sippi Levee Board have just been made public. At this meeting the board rescinded the order imposing a privilege tax of 2 per cent on life f’nsurance companies, leaving them imply liable to the payment of the regular annual privilege tax. The language of the board's order whi^h was repealed was as follows: “All life companies shall pay a tax of 2 pe- cent upon the gross amount of their initial or first year premi um receipts from business done in this district and one-tenth of 1 per cent upon renewal premiums; all other than life companies shall pay a tax of 2 per cent gross, less re turn premiums from business done in this district.” The committee appointed to aud it the semi-annual report of the it the semi-annual report of the treasurer stated that they had care fully examined the receipts and disbursements from March 1 to Oc tober 1, 1902, and found the same correct.

The realty increase is $14,403,287; the personalty increase $1,411,421 and the railroad increase $2,326,893.

The assesment figures show the increase to have been distributed over the State, the greatest enhance ment of property values, however, being in the southeastern part of the commonwealth, where pine lands of late have become so ex tremely valuable. The increased valuation will ma terially enhance the State's inepme for the year. Uonndary Litigation. Attorney General McClurg has addressed a communication to Land Commissioner Nall, acquainting him with the status of the boundary litigation between Louisiana and Mississippi, and asking him to fur nish him at his earliest convenience all books, maps, papers, surveys, his torical data, land grants or patents, etc., in his department, which might bear on the claim. The land com missioner will proceed at once to get up the necessary evidence. Di rector Howland of the department of history has run across an old map of the island off the Louisiana coast, which the attorney general believes will be valuable in sustain ing the Mississippi claim. No Right to Criticise.

The ap pellant in the lower court interposed the defense that he had a right to chastise the prisoners moderately when it should be found necessary. Kallroads Show Increunei).

The Remarkable Experience of a Prominent Statesman-Congress* man Meekison Gives Pe-ru-na a High Endorsement. ! Congressman Meekison of Ohio. Hon. David Meekison is well known not only in his own State, but through out America. He was elected to tht Fifty-fifth Congress by a very large ma jority, and is the acknowledged leader of his party in his section of the State. Only one flaw marred the otherwise complete success of this rising states man. Catarrh with its insidious aj-i proaeh and tenacious grasp, was his only unconquered foe. For thirty years he waged unsuccessful warfare against this personal enemy. At last Peruna came to the rescue. He writes: “ / have used several bottles of Pe runa and I feel greatly benefited there by from my catarrh of the head, i feel encouraged to believe that if I use It a short time longer I will be fully able to eradicate the disease of thirty years standing.”- David Meekison, Membei of Congress.

Hence, as I say, we must do some thing to put more giuger in the game. The point is, what s.iall we do?” Here a shaggy haired man arose in the rear of the hall and begged for a hear ing.
