Plan* Announced for U. C. V. Reunion. Jackson, Miss., Sept, 27th.— The following final general order, P calling attention to the forth 1 coming encampment of the Mis 1 sissippi division, U. C. V., was issued from Gen. Montgomery’s | headquarters today by Adjt. f General Webb: “Headquarters Mississippi Division, l United Confederate Veterans Jackson, Miss., Sept. 28, 1911. “General Order No. 15, “Attention is again called to f the twenty-first annual conven tion of the United Confederate Veterans, to be held in the city of Gulfport, Miss., on October ~i0, 11 and 12, 1911. The ar rangement as made will give a one fare, plus 25 cents, rate from stations on the Illinois Central. Yazoo and Mississippi Valley, L. & N,, Mississippi Central. Mobile & Ohio, New Orleans and Grea Northern, St. Louis and Sar Francisco, Southern, Southerr railway in Mississippi, and par ticipating carriers, Alabama & Vicksburg and New Orleans and Northeastern railroad, who will sell through tickets. The New Orleans. Mobile & Chicago will sell one way tickets at three cents per mile to Laurel and Hat tiesburg on the certificate plan, and on certification of certificate will sell return ticket to point ol destination at 25 cents. Tickets will be on sale on the 8, 9, 10,11 and 12, good returning until and on the 15. Tickets will be sold from all regular stations on the Gulf & Ship Island at one fare plus 25 cents, subject to the above limits. These rates apply to all who may desire to go, in cluding the United Sons of Vet erans and their sponsors and maids of honor. A few camps have so far failed to make re turns and remit the dues for 1911. It is hoped that every camp will respond and that we will have a full meeting, with euery canip represented. Much of interest is to come before the convention in which every vet eran is interested—the providing of ways and means by which the monument to the women of the Confederacy is to be constructed. This must be done now as time and tide waits for no man, and it especially appeals to us as Confederate veterans to get busy. The election of a com mander is another important mat ter that should be given the best of attention, as on him will de pend the future of our organiza tion. “Beauvoir Camp, 1U- C. V., and the Gulfport and Beauvoir Chapters of the U. D.

Since Columbus first gave them the trade touch of civilization, men have watched the slow and relentless elimination of the aborig ine from the tribal divisions of mankind; the children of the forest, the warriors of the West and the first lords of our country’s matchless and mighty domain, have dwindled to a mere handful when compared with their originally count less thousands. The present day generation finds his numbers reduced to a remnant. Unusual interest, there fore, centers in the work of publicly exhibiting this romantic people which Col. Wm. F. Cody, “ Buffalo Bill,” and Major Gordon W. Lillie, “ Pawnee Bill,” have individually carried forward for more than a quarter of a century. And now uniting their energies into a com bined organization, they afford the student of ethnology an opportunity, not alone to see descendants of the First American i>UL iu fomparc tiiem miu representatives of the Old World; for thev bring together the Wild West and the Far East in one arena. In the Bat tle of Summit Springs one hundred Indians are employed. There are chiefs and warriors from many tribes. The opening scene of the mimic conflict gives the spectators a comprehensive idea of Indian domesticity; their camp ing ground is selected, their tepees are erected, their fires are kindled, and then is shown the weird dance of the war riors. Scenes of barbaric warfare, Ori ental spectacles, mounted warriors and daring norsemen, drawn from the eques trian nations of the world, are real in representation and authentic in per sonality. Riding at the head of the mightv cavalcade, directing each detail and positively appearing at every per formance, Col. Wm. F. Cody, the orig inal and only “ Buffalo Bill.” i Take Care of Your Cotton. Editor Tupelo Journal: i Just as a man thinketh in hi ! heart, so is he I have beei thinking for some time we ha< , better make some arrangement to take care of our surplus cot | ton, or the cotton that is throwi i on the market early in the sea i son. We get only such thing: I as we talk about. I Mow, hov would something like this an swer our purpose ? Say we organize the Sou then Cotton Co., witn a capital stoci ! of one hundred million dollars and begin business when one fourth of the capital stock i paid in, and call the other three quarters as needed. Say we nov had this company organized; w< put a man at each leading cottoi market of the world, and whei the bears get too heavy on th< market, let our men buy all th< bears offtr for sale and maki them produce the cotton and le the cotton company pay for i and issue it out as the spinner: need it and are willing to pa: a living price for it. I am no lawyer, but if this con stitutional and we can get sucl a company organized I think i would make to the advantage o a'l legal business.

The Knocker. __ If you ever take a notion That knocking is your forte. Why just be a knocker That is worthy of note. Knock ’em early, knock ’em late. Knock for good not for hate, Knock the little out of man, Knock the meanness when you can. Knock the dead beat, he's the one, Knock his traffic till there’s none. Knock the can, but never won’t. Knock the alwayB will, but don’t. Knock the knocker, he’s the clog, Knock his feet from off the log, Knock the man who always talks. Knock the man who business balks. In all of this, you must remember, That month of May is not December/’ For the man who can’t and the mai who won’t, Live in the house with the man wh< don’t. Ancient City of Arizona.

CAN IRON GARMENT EVENLY I Board That la Mada to Pit Blaavaa •nd la Adjustable to Different Levels. Tha average Ironing board Is much too large to slip Into the sleeve of tha average woman’s shirtwaist, so an Ohio man has devised a sleeve Ironing board. This device Is made of two boards, one acting as a base and the other shaped - like a sleeve,- hinged upon it'and collapsible so that the two can be folded together when neces sary and form a flat object, taking up little room. A hook fastened to the baseboard holds the Ironing section rigid in whatever position It Is de sired, either closed or elevated. This Is achieved by thrusting the free end of the hook Into o * of various holes along the supports, and the ironing portion is thUB maintained at different levels. Without a device of this kind the laundress can only iron sleeves out by going over them as they lie stretched out on the board, and this process often causesunsightl leases. Slipped over a small board th> ieeves can be ironed smooth in e art. Beef Heart 8tuffed. Choose a fine fresh one. Wash well, lay in salt and water an hour, then wipe dry. Stuff with a forcemeat of crumbs, minced salt pork, pepper, salt and chopped parsley, with a little onion. Pack this in tightly, sew the heart up in coarse net, fitted well to it, and stew one hour and a half in weak bfoth. A cupful can be taken or made from any soup stock or bits of meat. At the end of this time take it out and undo the cloth and return the heart to the saueepan with enough 3 gravy to half cover. Add to this a tablespoon of butter, cut up in as much flour. Pepper and salt to taste. 1 Cover closely and simmer half an 3 hour, turning the heart as it browns. Dish it and add the juice of half a - lemon to the gravy. Boil once and » pour over the heart. 3 Fried Salt Fork. r Cut in rather thin slices and fresh en by letting lie an hour or two in cold water or milk and water. If in a hurry pour boiling water on the I slices, let stand a few moments, dry, roll in flour and fry until crisp; drain 1 oft most of the grease from the fry i ing pan, stir in while hot one or two - tablespoonfuls of flour, about half a pint of new milk, a little pepper, Balt ? if not salt enough already from the ' meat; let boil and pour into gravy r dish. This makes a nice white gravy 4 if properly prepared. * Currant and Oatmeal Biscuits. Half a pound of flour, a quarter of ; a pound of fine oatmeal, two heaping ? tablespoonfuls of brown sugar, one 1 gill of milk, two ounces of cleaned currants, two tablespoonfuls of butter, t Mix the flour, oatmeal and sugar, t warm the butter in the milk, add the currants and then work the whole * into a paste; roll out thinly, stamp ' out into rounds or other shape, place them on a greased baking tin and bake in a moderate oven for twenty min utes. i_ ’ Finnan Haddie a la King. This is a most popular chafing dish F dainty and is made as follows: Boil r the fish until it is done, flake it with a silver fork.

Add these to the melted butter and saute for three minutes, then add the fish. When all is hot add a gill ol cream in which the yolk of an egg has been beaten.

I CURIOUS BITS OF HISTORY By A. W. Macy. BHAYr REBELLION. One of the moot port loud times in the history of the United States was tho ported | x ..just,after tho close of tho Revo lutionary war and' before than* government had become firmly established. Every community was Inclined to be a law unto ' Itsplf. Even In puritanical i Massachusetts there was a lit tle rebellion against the state government that looked serious for a time. It is known as ”8hays' Rebellion,” taking its name from one of the leaders, Daniel 8hays, who had been a gallant officer in the War for Independence. The grievances were, the large 6alary paid the governor of the state, the aris tocratic character of the state senate, and the burdensome taxes. Tho rebellion lasted from August, 1785, till the fol lowing February. Shays had a large following, and there were several conflicts with the state militia. The opposing forces, however, evidently did not get dangerously near each other, for only three men were killed during the entire “war.” The leaders were tried and oonvlct* ed, but were eventually par doned. Shays lived till 1825, and In his old age was pen sioned for his gallant services during the Revolution. \ (Copyright. 1911, by Joseph B. Bowles.) Commissioner’s Sale.
