On Saturday, the 3rd inst., ir the presence of members of his Cabinet and the Committees oJ Congress entrusted with the J___ £ _j 1 UiaiUU^ KJX. 111L> UUl) X IV/OJUV/Ul Wilson signed the new tariff bill. Both houses of Congress have labored without intermission_for the past seven months in draft ing the bill to meet the demands of revenue. In.doing'this an op portunity was given to every one interested to fully and freely dis cuss the measure in every aspect of the case. President Wilson, upon taking his seat, immediately called a special session of Congress to re vise the tariff. The Democratic platforpi UDon which he was elected promised the people that the tariff would be revised down ward, and that the special inter ests would no longer control the duties on imports to this country. The Ways and Means Commit tees of both houses of Congress were headed by Southern repre sentatives—Underwood, of Ala bama. and Simmons, of North Carolina. Upon Mr. Underwood devolved the duty ?of^formulat ing the bill. In his work he was ably assisted by many membecs of Congress who had given the tariff a vast deal of study. The measure presented to the Senate was accepted 'with fewT changes and passed by that body. This is the first Democratic tariff bill, except one, for more than half a century. The Re publican party in all its revenue measures adhered closely to the idea of protection, and built up vast special interests for a fa vored few. During Mr. Cleve land’s second terml’the 'Demo crats passed the Wilson bill, but this measure was attacked on account of the income tax fea ture, which the Supreme Court neia to De unconstitutional, alter one of the judges had]changed his mind between the sittings of the court. Eliminating the an ticipated revenue derived from the income tax, there was a de ficit in the revenue of the govern ment which was charged to the lack of business methods on the part of the Democratic Congress. At the next election the Demo crats lost both hr0use3”'of Con gress, and the present Congress is the first since that time to be Democratic. President WilsonUhas proven himself to be an able and con scientious executive. Under his direction the work of changing the tariff has been so directed as to keep his party in perfect ac cord and also to impress the country with the justness of the measure. It will require some time to realize the great benefits a low tariff will bring, but the party in power before the next election will see their measure in working order. Just how it willjbe re ceived remains to be seen. INTRODUCTION OF SILOS. . Three of our progressive farm i- ers, Messrs. W. D. Brown, D. W. Robins, of Tupelo, and Oscar ^ Vaughn, of Shannon, have con s structed silos for the storage of ensilage for winter feed. f These are the first silos built f in this county. The great value e of the silo has been recognized i in the stock growing sections of “ the north and northwest, but other sections have been slow to realize their great value. J Every farm should have its ■ silos. Bv the use of it every blade of fodder and the entire ; stalk of the corn is turned into i nutritious food and preserved in . its green state for winter feed ing. The old way of pulling the ear from the stalk after maturity I and leaving the remainder un used except that portion which , stock at large during the winter can consume, should be aband ( oned. There is too much nourish , ment in the entire stock when it is green to leave it when there is . such need for good feed during the winter season. The dairymen of the northwest . find it most valuable for their cows, and by its use keep up the flow of milk, which could not be done upon dry feed alone. There is nothing better for young stock than this ensilage. They can be kept growing and come out of I fliQ HTinfci' in finn nnnrlifinn nrVinn | fed upon it. ' Elsewhere in this issue we re - produce an article on the value of silos taken from an Arkansas 1 paper. Mr. H. L. Robins sold many hundreds of silos in Ark ansas during the past two years, and the people of that section are new realizing their great value. Every farmer in Lee county, in fact every farmer in the State, who has not already built one, should make arrangements to erect one in time to save a great portion of his next year’s crop of corn. It is economy to do this, and the question should be in vestigated during the winter and a silo of proper size should be ready to receive the corn by the time it reaches the roasting ear stage. EARTHQUAKES IN PANAMA. The Isthmus of Panama along the Panama route was last week visited by several earthquakes, which caused grave apprehension for the safety of the^dams and locks of the Panama canal.] The disturbance, however, while dis tinctly felt at several ^points, were fortunately of not sufficient volume as to cripple the great work which is now nearing com pletion. Panama was visited 2by an earthquake in 1797 that caused considerable damage. $3„This dis turbance lasted j.from]the 4th to the 20th of February, and was felt as far down as Bolivia. In the city of Panama much damage was done and j the cathedral of the city was wrecked. On September 7th, 1882, the city was againlvisited and the cathedral that had «been con structed on the site of the former was destroyed. With its locks and dams, and its artificial lake at the mouth of the Charges river, an earthquake could soon destroy the work that the United States government has constructed at'i such great expense. Although every aspect of the case was apparently gone over before the Panama route was se lected. yet it now appears that the danger from earthquakes was not considered. TheJNica raugua route, with itsjlevel lake country, would have been a cheaper route and at the same time free from the ^apparent danger to which the jPanama route now seemsjto be subjected. The MeridianJDispatch has re cently erected a new land corr odious building into which it has moved. A 24-page Goss press has been installed, .the capacity being 20.000 an hour. Memiom SUNWSl 001 LESSON (By E. O. SELLERS, Director of Evening Department, The Moody Bible Institute, Chicago.) LESSON FOR OCTOBER 12. JEALOUSY AND ENVY PUNISHED. LESSON TEXT—Numbers, chapter 12 GOLDEN TEXT—“Love envieth not; love vaunteth not Itself, is not puffed up doth not behave itself unseemly.”—I Cor 13:4, 5 R. V. In order the events from SInal to Kadesh-Barnea were: (1) The march ing host, Nu. 10:11; (2) The fire of the Lord at Taberah, 11:1; (3) The lusting after Egyptian flesh-pots, 11:4; (4) The complaint of Moses, 11:10; (5) The selection of elders, 11:16; (6) The two irregular prophets, 11:26; (7) the quails and the plague, 11:31, and (8) Sedition, chapter 12, which forms today’s lesson. Miriam’s Leadership. I. The Accusation, vv. 1, 2. This is not the first nor the last time a marriage has caused a family quarrel. \\ ho this Ethiopian woman was we are not told, though we are inclined to believe that it was Zipporah (Ex. 2:21), and not a second wife whom Moses married recently. Of all peo ple we would least expect jealousy to show itself in this family circle, among these the chosen leaders of Israel. Nothing so hinders the work of God, or gives more delight to the devil, than just such a situation as this one. It brings confusion and de lay (v. 15). The occasion was not, however, so much the wife of Moses as it was envy of Moses (See Luke 22:24-26; I Cor. 1:11-15, and 3 John f) i n \ n_i .. - _ v, xv/. It uiaj uavc uccu LUclL IVlUSWi - was culpable, for no man is perfect i (Rom. 3:23), but Miriam and Aaron , were not his judges. We must re s member in this connection last Sun 1 day’s lesson wherein we had present . 2d such a radical change in the form of government. Miriam and Aaron ' were desirous of having an equal ; place with Moses and because he did a thing they could not understand they criticised him (Rom. 14.3, 4; ' Jude 8). II. The Arrest, vv. 4, 5. “The Lord beard it” (v. 2, 1 c.) God hears w’hat we say in criticism of those whom he 1 has set over us. Instead of being ; jealous of the preference accorded to ■ athers we ought to rejoice (Phil. 2:3). Though we are free to admit such a course often proves the measure of bis grace in our hearts. God did not let this matter stand nor run the course of idle gossip. Ho ^ „nce, and in person, came down to'cham pion the cause of Moses (v. 5, see llso 16:20, 21). He Saw Jehovah. III. The Arraignment, vv. 6-8. Je hovah pointed out very clearly not anly the difference between them and Moses, but also between Moses and all other prophets. They were proph ets, so was Moses, and more. To the prophets God revealed himself in visions (see Ezek. 1:1, Isa. 6:1, Dan. 5:2, Luke 1:11), and many other simi lar instances, but with Moses God spake "mouth to mouth even mani- j festly,” that is, others heard God’s j voice speaking audibly to Moses (Ex ! 19:19 and 33:11). This voice was clear and distinct, it did not demand any interpretation. Verse 8 does not imply that Moses had a full revela tion of the person of Jehovah, but he did have a visible manifestation of the similitude (“form” R. V.) of God (John 1:18). IV. Judgment, w. 0, 10. The de parting cloud from off the tabernacle was a token of God’s displeasure. Let us not forget that future time when it will be others who will depart (Matt. 25:41). The lifted cloud re vealed to Aaron Miriam smitten with leprosy, that most terrible of all dis eases, loathsome, contagious, incur •1 hltl Pnod fKft XUnmnn and Uzziah. Aaron’s Sin. V. Intercession, vv. 11-16. Aaron in his appeal tp Moses acknowledges his equal transgression with Miriam, his foolishness and his sin, and in turn Moses revealed his noble Christ like character. Christ prayed for his enemies (Luke 23-34). Moses was not overcome of evil but overcame evil with good *Rom. 12:12). His prayer was an effectual one (James 5:16). Some have viewed this epi sode in a typical light. Moses repre senting Christ is rejected by his own people; the Ethiopian bride as the church, chiefly Gentiles; Aaron and Miriam as Jews opposed to any such union; the leprosy as divine judg ment upon the Jews who are inter ceded for by those whom they oppose; the Christian church; Miriam shut out of the camp, the period of Is rael’s rejection after which period she will be restored to her land and her God in Christ Jesus. This lesson is a great teaching of the jealousy of Jehovah for those upon whom he confers honor. We serve him by his appointment and he will defend us. We should think highly of any service to which he sails us and say with Paul, "I magnify mine office.” God will not hold those guiltless who call in question the wisdom of his appointments or the rights of his appointees who do his work. Miriam and Aaron broke the tenth commandment by coveting au thority. Let us beware of this form sf sin. Such envy is not only a lack ?f love for man but also of God. I I I SC IN BOTTLES ANO AT FOUNTS OPINIONS ABROAD The London daily papers place a high estimate upon the achieve ment of President Wilson andj the present Congress in the pass age of the new tariff bill. The Daily Mail says: i The passage of the bill, however, has rescued the national fiscal policy from the grip of piivilege, and proves that at times the people really do rule. The Daily News says: America is today practically a free trade country. There has been no free trade achievement at all comparable with this event since Peel abolished the ; corn laws. This revolution is the big- j gest thing that has happened for Amer-! _ ica since 1865, and in President Wilson America has produced the most cour- .! ageous, as well as the most construe- 1 live statesman, in the wo;Id today The Daily Telegraph says: President Wilson has played a win- £ ning game with a force and brilliancy j jg which has won for him a reputation:! more solid than any popularity enjoyed ; fi by an American statesman for fiftyJ years.

Style Skow Suits that Give New Figure Lines In the new silhouette, the most striking note is the tapering effect—the width just below the hips and the narrowing down about the feet. Skirts are longer this season—as long as they can comfortably be worn—and must be draped close to follow the lines of the figure. Many of the most elegant new costumes show drapery at the front, but the skirt that is drape4 at the side vies for favor. Much of this new drapery flows down from the waist ; line, swelling somewhat below the hips; again it is introduced in plaits or gathers at the belt with the folds swinging off to right or left or caught in at the sides—styles which maintain the indispensable nar row effect about the ankles. To be really in the height of the mode, the skirt must be slashed. The slash, as Bischof uses it, is generally the un stitched end of a deep lapped seam and is designed only to relieve the narrowness of the new skirt. The coats, too, show the tapering effect. The important part the cutaway plays is seen everywhere in connection with the elongated panel back. The sleeves also accentuate the long, sloping shoulder lines, most of them being of the Mandarin type set low on the arm. As these sleeves are long and fit the forearm closely, they are set into a large, pear-shaped armhole. In every Bischof gar ment a tiny gusset under the arm insures comfort, freedom and good service. Come in and see how cleverly Bischof uses every one of these new style features. You will find a wealth of suggestions—for he has thought out all your needs for Fall and Winter hi garments that combine the most fashionable effects with moderate price.
