It has been definitely announc ed from Hot Springs, Va., that all arrangments have been made to Root Mr. Platt out of the New York senatorship. Congressman Fowler of New Jersey is a candidate for speak er of the house of representatives against Speaker Camion. The country could be none the worst off by he election of Mr, Fowler although he is a republican ot the deepest dye, Indies, ions are that Chas. P. Taft, brother of the president elect, will be a candidate for sen ator from Ohio. Mr. Taft has money er.ougn to get a seat in the senate it he sp desires, why should he want to go to the sen ate when he is already well sup plied with this world’s goods.

Local apitalists and planters at1 Shreveport, La., have combined to i’cct a packing house in that city. This is the first announce ment that Southern men ofj means would undertake to es tablish such an enterprise. There are a number of packing houses in the south, but they are all branches of one or the other of the great, packing houses of the north or west. These great pack ing bouse have grown immense ly rich, and next to the Standard 0:i and Steel trust, no business has paid better. The south has contributed its full share of the patroi age given to the packing houses and has suffered loss in proportion as the packing houses have prospered. Make i hem Gomfortable. Now is the time to think about the comforts of the schools. Winter is coming on and many of the schools have no windows, poor doors, no ceilings and many times there are large holes in the roof as well as large cracks in the floors. We should realize that this means poor work by the student. No child can sit in the cold all day and learn; he must at least be comfortable. Aside from this, cold rooms means the bring ing on of disease, especially con sumption and rheumatism, that will make the life of the child of misery and failure. It is crim inal the way our school buildings are kept, and it ought to be pun ishable as a crime with a very se vere penalty to allow a school to be taught until a comfortable house is afforded and also fuel and proper conveniences furnish ed.—Oxford Eagle, ABERDEEN ANDTHE BOAT LINE. Aberdeen, through its Business League, has inaugurated a move ment to regain the trade of the Upper Tombigbee river section, which for years has been going to other points. At one time practically all of this trade went \ to Aberdeen and was considered one of that little city’s best trade assets. The building of railroads, however, changed the current of of business and Aberdeen suf fered a substantial loss when this business was turned to more accessible points. Aberdeen has now determined to regain this trade, if possible. A num ber of her enterprising citizens have combined for the purpose of building a boat to run be tween Aberdeen and Walker’s Bridge. Congress will be pe titioned through Congressman Candler for an appropitation to clean out the river between the two points, and if the money is voted the work will be done. The pro ject is practical and feasi ble and no doubt the boat will pay expenses. In referring to this Upper Tombigbee section’s trade the Aberdeen Weekly has this to say:— Now, let Aberdeen get busy in Liiv> cij o. nci u\ igw^v/iu reaching out for the trade that rightfully belongs to this place by the foreordination of nature. The Tombigbee river was created by God, and the territory drained by it is in the fixedness of things tributary to Aberdeen We have only to do our part to fasten it but the balance of the world is after it also. No sooner than the Business League of Aberdeen launched the boat enterprise than did Tupelo, a competitor for this trade, organize a trolly line from Fulton to that town We do not blame Tupelo She did right. This trade is the backbone of her commercial life If she lets Aberdeen turn her natural advantages to account and claim what is hers without a struggle. Tupelo would be a dead community indeed. But so far as the Itawamba trade is con cerned, God intended it to come to Aberd^n. If not, He would not have channeled the Tombig bee from this point into that sec tion. Every loyal citizen of Aber deen will not only lend his aid to the success of the boat line, but will do every other right thing to make Abeuleen what she ought to be. the largest town in north Mississippi The building of the boat. by Aberdeen was not the incentive that moved Tupelo’s business men, but recognizing the fact that some better means of com municating with her trade sec tion was needed, and prompted by an earnest desire to see the section composed of Itawamba, Lee and Pontotoc counties, de veloped and made to enjoy ad vantages far superior to those now enjoyed, Tupelo has taken the lead in projecting the new road. Within a year we hope to see trains o.i the new road meet the boat from Aber deen at River Junction.

The new road is going to be built, and every thing now points to its completion within the next, year 9 Judge Calhoon’s Religion. ‘Do no harm to others. Do all the good to others you can con sistently, with a reasonable—not starined—consideration of your self and family.” This was religion of the late Justice S. S. Calhoon, of the supreme court of Mississippi, ac cording to manuscripts found in his effects by his former partner, Hon. Marcellus Green. On another sheet of paper Mr Green found the following: “A long life of observation sat isfies me that there can be no genuine contentment in this or any future life without self-sacri fice. ‘‘Theologians avail nothing. The pith and essence of pure re ligion is consideration for others. Happiness is reflex and comes only from adding to the happiness of others “ This comprises, in its last an alysis, the whole teachings of Jesus Christ to the relations and interactions men.” * These maxims were read at the meeting of the State Bar As sociation yesterday afternoon. They were received with satisfac tion, as all present knew they expressed the sentiments"of the broad-guaged, liberal-minded, generous-hearted lawyer, states man and jurist who had so re cently gone to his reward. Judge Calhoon was every|man’s. friend, and every man was his friend. He lived up to his religion —“do no harm to others; do all the good to others you can.” What better creed could be wanted? There U No Death. ANONYMOUS. ] There is no death; The stars go down. To rise upon sonfb fairer shore, And bright in Heaven’s jewelled j; crown. They shine forevermore. There is no death; the du t we tread I Shall change beneatli the summer shower To golden grain or mellow fruit, Or rainbow tinted flower. The granite rocks disorganize To feed the hanging moss they bear. The forest trees drink daily life From out the viewless air. There is no death; The leaves may fall The flowers may fade and pass away They only wait through wintry hour? The coming of the May. There is no death; An angel form Walks o’er the earth with silent treau; He bears our best loved things away, And then we call them dead. He leaves our hearts all desolate, Hi* nlnplrst nnr ■fnirpat swppfpst flowers. Transplanted into bliss, they now. Adorn immortal bowers. | The bird-like voice whose joyous notes. Made glad these scenes of sin and strife, Sings now an everlasting song | Amidst the trees of life. i And when he finds a smile too bright Or heart too pure for taint or vice, He bears it to that world of light To dwell in Paradise, Born into that undying life, They leave us but to come again With joy, we welcome them the same, Except in sin and pain. And ever near us, though unseen, The dear immortal spirits tread, F>r all this boundless universe Is life—There are no dead. Monument for a Live Town.

Rival Dignities. An Englishman, fond of boast ing of his ancestry, took a coin from his pocket and, pointing to the head engraved on it, said: | “My great-greatgrandfather was made a lord by the King whose picture you see on this shilling." “What a coincident" said his Yankee companion, who at once produced another coin- “My great- great -grandfather was made an angel by the Indian whose picture you see on this cent."—Ladies’ Home Journal. --9-— No service is too reliable or too good for the sick.
