PtTBUlHKD WEEKLY. TUPELO. » I I MISSISSIPPI. Open season for fish tales. Bloodless revolutions are In the same class with painless dentistry. Some American boys would not care to be president if they could be cham pion pitchers. Spells of nasty weather are now called by the weather bureau “ener getic disturbances." Between dining on boot heels and pony meat polar explorations are not attractive to the club man. The reserve forest lands saved from the ax and, let us hope, from fire equal in area the state of Texas. Colorado has some shrewd holdup men. In a recent robbery they did not overlook the Pullman car porter. Other Washington papers are so bright that it is a wonder the Congres ional Record doesn't speed up a little. When it is all over but the shouting there are those in the audience who do not appreciate that form of noise. Cheer up! The national deficit up to yet is only $89,429,501. And why worry when we can always borrow money? In a few more generations the _ . ... . >__ i IknmenltFac r ItfllUl will licit c; V.UJI * rnvvu -- that the Wright brothers were born in France. When the authorities keep their hands off, gambling is no more a mat ter of chance than is running the Philadelphia mint. It's alf right to decoy flying ma chines, but one thing in their favor is that one doesn't have to lie on one s back to repair them. Threatening letters may be jokes, but it is a sort of humor which should be discouraged effectually whenever the jokers are caught. The census bureau reports “a short age of about 25,000 children.” Last summer’s drought or the renascense of the kidnaping industry? France will charge German aero nauts $100 each for landing on French soil. Some will save the money if they only land hard enough. A Gotham magistrate has decided that it is no crime to tickle another, which illustrates what grave questions of law modern life is continually bring ing up for adjudication. The Russian Black sea fleet has sailed under sealed orders. Wouldn’t It make the commander mad if he opened the envelope and found that he was bound for Japan! University advisory boards are be coming the fashion nowadays, but as a rule the trustees and faculties of such institutions do not expect these boards to give too much advice. A velocity of 100 miles an hour was attained by the wind in Cleveland the other day, but the people of Cleveland will go right on believing Chicago to be the windiest city in the world. Make a memorandum in your note book that Boston will celebrate in 1920, with a world’s fair, the three hundredth anniversary of the Pilgrim Fathers, and do not fail to attend it. One of the scientists announces that overeating as well as excessive drink ing will produce a red, bulbous nose. But that doesn’t help much. It is about as foolish to overeat as to drink to excess. New York is to have a 31-story hotel. The builders probably cling to the theory that it will not hurt any more, in case of fire, to jump from the . thirty-first story than it would to leap from the seventeenth floor. Children are so unpopular with land lords that an Illinois legislator has introduced a bill which provides that it shall be unlawful and to be against public policy for any landlord to dis criminate against families where there are children under 14 years old. It is also declared to be equally reprehen sible for any landlord to insert a clause forfeiting a lease in case a babv is born to the tenant family or a child is adopted. It is a safe bet that this man is a father and is not a landlord. New Bedford is again restored to the map by the report of the master of a whaling ship that was fitted out in that port and has returned with a record. The ship has brought back to New Bedford more than 2,000 bar rels of whale oil of a value of more than $40,000. This means probably that Capt. Hagerty’s crew captured 40 or 50 "leviathans of the deep,” which is pretty good business when one con siders that the whale oil fishing has been regarded as largely a thing of the past. The gowns of the period represent a fusion of the modes prevailing under King Dagobert with the styles of the directoire. The result is in some cases very beautiful, but the confusion of periods is enough to make the stu dent’s head swim. When nature refuses her rain and sun that man might get his bread, her refusal is a catastrophe. But what shall we say of men who deliberately withhold the production of the soil in order that man’s bread shall be made harder to get? An experienced bartender testified In court that the man who plays the slot machines “loses oftener than he wins.” To establish the truth of this theory in a practical way is the only purpose the slot machine has in ex isting.

Natchez, Miss.—The great history making trip was completed this after non. At exactly 2:45 o’clock Capt. Fre mont brought his vessel, the battleship Mississippi, safely to an anchorage close to the Louisiana shore, and so was the navigability of the splendid river for big ships proven and all slanders brought to the board. A few minutes after the Mississippi rested to her anchors in fifty-seven feet of water Capt. Fremont sent the fol lowing telegram to the navy department at Washington: “Natchez, Miss. Fremont.” The captain told his story in those three words, and the message w-as suf ficient for the department to know’ that its capable officer had filled the com mission given him, and demonstrated to the country the usefulness of the great est river in the world. The Mississippi covered the one hun dred and seven miles from Bayou Sara in record-breaking time. She got under way at half-past five in the morning, and came to her anchorage in exactly nine hours and a quarter. STANDARD OIL MOURNS. Monster Industry Weeps at Field Marshal’s Bier. New York.—For the first time since oil became a medium of trust develop ment, the various activities of the Stand ard Oil Co. came to a dead stop Satur day, between the hqurs of 10 and 12 o’clock, while the burial services were being held over Henry H. Rogers, first vice-president of the Standard Oil Com pany. Not for one minute since John D. n I # II . __:.1 ntoof oriminHt* AUlMirmri tuuvvn --- c c of trusts has its machinery stopped. The order was clicked over telegraph wires to the furthermost parts of the country and bv cable to the most distant lands. This means that 65,000 men took two hours off to meditate upon the career of the first vice-president of the greatest of trusts and the right-hand man of John D. Rockefeller, Standard Oil stations to the number of 3,750 closed their blinds during these hours. Nineteen big re fineries were closed down. Standard Oil ships in harbor all over the world cast their flags at half-mast, and as rapidly as the vessels of the numerous Standard Oil fleet came into port and learned of Mr. Rogers’ death, the mourning will continue. TAFT’S "SOUTHERN- POLICY His Only Desire Complete Tolerance of Opinion. Charlotte, N. C.—President Taft's pol icy toward the South will be to name as federal office-holders from the sec tion the man best liked and most fitted for the position in his community, with out regard to his political faith. I He made this announcement in the auditorium here in a speech eommemo- . rating the Mecklenburg declaration of , independence, signed in 1775, and a dem- | onstration lasting more than two min utes greeted it. , “I don’t believe that we are on the ( point of a political revolution in the ( South,” - said the president. ‘‘I never have had such a dream. What 1 do de- > sire, and believe we are on the eve of, is a complete tolerance of opinion, and that there shall grow into respect and power an intelligent fighting opposition party • in each State of the Lnion. ’ Faked with Insect Powder. < Paducah, Ky.—Hundreds of farmers in ] this and adjoining counties have been | fleeced out of as many quarters for bo- | gus insect powder some slick stranger , sold them.

Reads Editorials Attacking Him From Southern Newspapers, Amusing Republicans. ■ Washington.—For 30 minutes Monday the Southern members of the house sur mounted a volcano of suppressed excite ment. During that interval Representa tive Hollingsworth of Ohio was sparring desperately to get recognition to vent his objection to the placing of Jefferson Da vis’ picture on a piece of the silver service to be presented by the people of Mississippi to the officers of the battle ship bearing the name of their State. The Mississippi delegation had been on the qui vive for a week or more, expect ing tnis resolution to be brought up, and Representatives Humphreys, Npight, Col lier, Dickson and Sisson had moved from their seats and were seated together on the front row, next to the speaker’s desk, ready to defend the people of Mississippi and their action in placing the name of Jefferson Davis upon the silver service. Fortunately for the preservation of fra. ternalism between the once-rent sections of the Union, the Republicans, swayed by impulses of a broad nationalism, withheld encouragement from Represen tative Hollingsworth and gave their aid 4« flu. nno/mfnl tli nf an issue, the lay they have made some inroads upon he “progressive Republican” camp, and .hat upon the question of referring the s*hole subject of an income tax to the udiciary committee for a report at the lest regular session, they already have 15 votes pledged. CRUSHERS IN CONVENTION Cotton Seed Men Hold Annual Meeting in Memphis. Memphis, Tenn.—With hundreds of lelegates from all over the cotton grow ng section of the South, from the East, he North and the West, the thirteenth tnnual convention of the Interstate Cot on Seed Crushers’ Association was called o order in Memphis Tuesday. Barring he usual delay, the splendid program )repared many days in advance of the ipening of the meeting was carried otf vithout a hitch, and reflects great credit ipon the committee which had it in barge. At least 700 delegates were in ttendance when C. D. Jordan, chairman if the local committee of arrangements, apped for order at 10:45 o'clock. The delegates were given a right royal veleome to the grand old Younteer Hate, Tennessee, by Gov. M. R. l’atter on, and to Memphis, the Bluff City, by dayor James H. Malone. The freedom if the State and the city is theirs. They lave been assured of the unbounded iospitality of Tennesseans and Mem ihians, if such an assurance was nec-es ary, and, indeed it was not, for only ix years ago the cotton seed crushers asted of this hospitality, and this is ehy they returned to Memphis this year. MARRIED BY SIDE OF CORPSE flTebster Wilson Weds Miss Delia Graves. l’aragould, Ark.—A marriage of more han local interest occurred Saturday at Joody, 111. The contracting parties were liss Delia Graves, a former resident of his city, and Webster Wilson, sou of )r. Olive Wilson of l’aragould. The marriage was to have taken place everal weeks hence, but the father of he bride made a deathbed request that he young people marry in the presenc f his corpse. The old gentleman, Dr. i. L. Graves, was stricken with appen icitis a week ago. Realizing that death ,as near, he made the odd request. He ied Friday night, and the young people i-ere wedded the following day, while exploitation of which meant renewed bitterness and unfriendly rankling of for giveness. .Mr. Hollingsworth rose to a question of personal privilege and had sent to the clerk’s desk clippings from numerous Southern papers, which were read. “An ass of the first magnitude.” “Perhaps one of Sherman's bums, who robbed defenseless men and women.” “A political nonenity from Ohio.” “Contemptible little whelp.” “A pale-faced luminary.” “A pusillanimous pigmy from Ohio.’' These were some of the expressions used in the editorials upon which Repre sentative Hollingsworth desired to be heard on a question of personulprivilege; claiming that it affected him in his rep resentative capacity as a congressman. Representative Burton Harrison, Dem ocratic member from New York, raised the point of order that the editorials did not reflect upon Hollingsworth in his representative capacity, and the point of order was sustained by the speaker in a careful and deliberate ruling, citing many precedents therefor. EIGHT KILLED IN HAILSTORM Two Thousand Head of Stock Pelted to Death. Galveston, Tex—An unprecedented hailstorm Monday in Uvalde county cost at least eight lives, while many were in jured and from 1,500 to 2,000 head of live stock killed. The hail stones were like cannon balls, weighing six pounds, some weighing ten pounds. They measured from ten to seventeen inches in circumference and fell for thirty minutes in two storms about two hours apart. Rumors of many more persons killed I are not confirmed. Searching parties are out scouring the ranges. Lasalle county also suffered from the heaviest hailstorm in its history, and the monetary damage there to property alone is estimated at $200,000. No loss of life is reported, and the loss of live stock is not great. The largest hail stones reported from Lasalle county weighed from one to two pounds. They played havoc with buildings and crops. A terrific wind accompanied the storm. Skimmed Milk—Kills Wife. Portland, Ore.—Because, it is alleged, his girl wife gave him skimmed milk in stead of cream, John D. Roselair cleaved her head open with a heavy knife. The sheriff is authority for the statement that the man lias confessed. The trag edy occurred at the lonely mountain home of the couple, twenty miles from Hillsboro. According to the alleged con fession, after tSe woman was dead Rose lair removed her blody clothing and de stroyed all traces of the affair. Duel Bar to Insurance. New Orleans, La.—A widow or heirs of a man killed in a duel or a street fight he has sought, according to a de cision by the United Stater court of ap peals, can not collect insurance on a policy held by the man killed.

MARCHED HIM TO HIS DEATH Jesse Scott Confesses to Diabolical Murder of W. L. Embrey. Cleveland, Miss.—Jesse Scott, a young farmer, 22 years of age, confessed to the most diabolical murder that was eve committed in this community and impli cated in his confession Mrs. W. L. Em brey, whose husband was the victim. Scott and Mrs. Embrey have had an illicit love affair for some time. Al though she is old enough to be his moth er, he seemed infatuated with her and she enamored of him. Her husband was in their way, and Scott says she made him kill Mr. Embrey, telling him that if he didn’t do it she would take his (Scott’s) life. Scott met Mr. Embrey on a county road. After some discussion, Scott drew his pistol on Embrey and, telling him to about face, marched him half a mile to a cypress brake, where he shot him four times in the back. Every step of the way, Scott says, Mr. Embrey pleaded with him for bis life, but to no avail. After killing him, Scott says he robbed the dead body, getting two watches and $15 in silver. He gave the money to Mrs. Embrey and kept the watches. Mrs. Embrey just smiles a don’t care, oh-go-away-from-1 e smile when asked what share she 1 in the diabolical dime. She nn no concern in the death of her L, - J, and shrugs her shoulders when told of the foul manner of his taking off. Truly, she is a mys tery to the officers who have examined her. MINISTER PUTS AWAY WIFE Sudge Questions Divine About Scrip tural Sanction. Denver, Colo.—The Rev. Monroe Mark ley, formerly pastor of the First Con gregational Church of Denver, who re signed to go with a lyceum company as a lecturer because he could not live hap pily with his wife, has been granted a divorce by Judge Shattuck on the ground of mental cruelty. Shattuck refused to grant a decree or hear the case until Mr. Markley appeared in court. Do you find in our Scriptural read ings any of the grounds you set forth against your wife for divorce?” asked the judge. “No,” replied Markley. “Then you ask the court to do wliat the Bible does not sanction?’ "I have tried fourteen years to avoid this, your honor,” replied the minister. “But I find it impossible for us to agree or live together, and since the law al lows divorces in such cases I have ap pealed to the courts.” WOULD NOT RAISE MAINE. Admiral Sigsbee Talks on Proposed Move. Washington.— Rear Admiral Charles D. Sigsbee delivered an interesting lec ture at the New National Theater on the disaster of his old battleship, the Maine, illustrating his talk with views of the Havana harbor and parts of the ill-fated vessel. The admiral took the ground that it would be ill-advised to raise the wreck. He thought that the ultimate solution of the difficulty in the harbor as to its obstruction would be removed by blow ing the submerged hulk to pieces. He pointed out as an objection to raising the vessel that it would necessitate the construction of a cofferdam and the ex posure of a large area of the unsanitary mud of the harbor. IS THE DEVIL REAL PERSON? Presbyterian Ministers Have Matter Under Discussion. Chicago.—“Is the devil a personality, and did Satan appear in physical form in Bible times?” This and similar questions formed the subjects of discussion at the meeting of the Presbyterian Ministers’ Association in this city after an address on “What is left for the minister to preach if he accepts the modern theological views?” by Prof. Agnew C. Zenos of the Mc Cormick Theological Seminary. “A great many people are troubled w;ith the idea that there must be an evil,” he said: “I do not believe that it is necessary to believe that a physical devil came to Christ and tempted him, but. I believe in the personality of the devil in I he Bible. This personality, however, is none of the cardinal doctrines of the Bible. The man who denies it is not nec essarily to be pronounced un-Christian.” Over Million Fire in Akron. Akron, O.—Fire in the seven-story Hower Power block Tuesday practically destroyed the building and its contents, causing a loss which it is thought will aggregate $1,500,000.

Wilson, known as Big Wilson, shot Tom Curry four times with a shotgun, killing him. Curry had whipped four men dur ing the day, and had told Wilson that he intended to do him before the day was over. He was advancing on Wilson when Wilson shot him. Curry was a new man, who had only been in the camp about three weeks. Wilson is one of the well-Known characters of Spadra. . . .President Has Chosen Place Bur dened with Many Names. It Is 8a!em Bay, Beverly Cove, Wood berry or Burgess Point—Well Adapted for Vacation But Not Ostentatious. Boston.—What Is to be the name of the summer capital? Gray Gables, at Buzzard’s Bay, was succeeded by Oys ter Bay. If the name is to continue the use of bay, the coming capital is Salem bay. The property which has been leased by the president of the United States for the coming season' permits, however, no such easy desig nation as Gray Gables or Sagamore Hill. In general, it is on Salem bay, along the north shore, and is close to Beverly cove, and lies within the pre cincts of the town of Beverly. More specific designation to the summer col onists is the name of the little penin sula upon which President Taft’s cot tage is situated. On the coast maps this peninsula is termed Woodberry point, but to the natives of the region it Is known as Burgess point, because a prominent yacht designer once lived there. As Robert Dawson Evans owns two houses on the point it is customary for the natives to refer to the cottage which the president will occupy as the Stetson cottage, because it was once owned and occupied for several sea sons by John Stetson, a theatrical manager of great popularity in Bos ton. Beautifully adapted for a restful summer vacation as it is. the summer home of the Taft family is by no means as luxurious as many estates of the north shore. There is nothing ostentatious about it There are in the environs palatial residences, with costly formal gardens and a complete working out of elegance which pro duces greater magnificence than the llM.il- t r_ _ .. 117__— rp v. „ _ „ uitv xavruiovs u i. i» uouiu()i.uu. a uvt w are few north shore estates, however, which more closely approach all of the requirements of a family seeking ac tual rest and recreation. Accessibility and privacy were like ly two considerations rarely found in one property which commended the Stetson cottage to the president. High ly developed roads make the place quickly accessible, and a trolley line Where Taft Will Make His Summer Headquarters. runs within 100 yards of the house, and yet, owing to the arrangement of trees and the slope of the lawns, the house is secluded from the public, whereas it commands a view of the only entrance whereby intruders might come upon the president With the ocean on three sides, persons arriving by land must enter by the one drive way, which can be easily guarded. Because of the president’s numerous summer engagements, such, for in stance, as his trip to the exposition at Seattle, he is not expected to be at Woodberry point for more than two or three weeks during the entire sea son. Social diversions are very varied. The excellence of the roads for motor ing, the bathing beach and the yacht ing courses are all assurances of a summer quickly passed. Should President Taft desire to play golf he will find the Montserrat golf links two miles away, the Hamilton Golf oiub four miles and the Essex Golf club seven miles. The Myopia Hunt club is six miles away and has wooded roads exclusively for horse back riding. In the village, one mile away, are both Episcopal and Uni tarian churches. The president’s family are not ex pected to occupy the cottage before June 5, although it is ready at the present time. On the Evans property is a pier for yachts, but the water is not deep enough for such yachts as the May flower nr tho Dnlnhfn which rnnlfl ho reached only by tender sent out from the pier. Accordingly the Jubilee Yacht club of Beverly has already ten dered to President Taft an honorary membership in their club. At their Boat the presidential yachts can run up on the incoming tide. In adjacent Salem harbor a battleship fleet could come to anchor. For smaller boats the bay directly in front of the cottage Is an ideal course, and over it are run races for power boats, and there in the fall will be held the trials for the sonder races with Germany. The house was built many years igo by A. B. Turner of Boston and was later bought by John Stetson. Mr. Evans then bought it, and it has since been occupied by Frederick Ayer, C. Howard Clark of Philadelphia and Costello C. Converse of Boston. On :hree sides the house is surrounded by Salem bay and looks off on the east to the open ocean and on the west along the cove, where the spires of Beverly may be seen above the trees, in the new are Salem harbor.

Then Annie dried her eyes and rushed to her mother, voicing the consolation, “Mother, I have a little angel duck.”—Delineator.

It is then that the greatest care is exercised in maintaining bodily health. But the chief care should al ways be with regard to the food ^you eat and whether you are digesting It properly.
