ALL WORK GUARANTEED Estimates Cheerfully Furnished Upon Application. Phone No. 44, Water Valley | Paper From Saw Mill Waste. The wood-waste about the south Mississippi saw mills is to be utilized in the manufacture of pa* per. This waste, in the form of slabs, tree limbs, etc., amounts, so it is said, to millions of dollars annually, and eastern capital has been attracted to it, It is stated that a tirst-class quality of paper, suitable for printing purposes, can be made from ordinary yellow pine, and cheaper even than from the spruce pine of. the north. The yellow pine fibre is longer , and stronger than the spruce, and the bleaching process to which it has been necessary to subject the yel low, heretofore expensive, has been cheapened. A news item from Jackson in a number of the state papers says that a Virginia corporation now “has agent at work, in the southern section of the state securing options on wast age at the principal lumber plants, and it is understood that the com pany is also in the market for a large tract of lumber lands. In view of the rapid consumption of the spruce forests of the north in the manufacture of paper, and the general demand of publishers for the removal of the tariff on wood pulp and paper, the plan to utilize the yellow pine forests of the south is of exceptional interest.” —Meridian Morning Dispatch.

If our sense of taste were a little more acute we could find the honey-dew in everything that seems naught but bitter. The truth is, there would be no bitter cups had we the power to extract the sweetness that lingers in every grief and dis tills itself in every tear. And that truth brings to me a message. Sometimes I have questioned if duty w'ere not best left undone since it brings so much pain and heart-ache. And I then wonder if this exaggerated duty is not the rational movement of a great spir it whose senses are far keener than mine. Their eve has a vast er reach, their ears listens to a harmony where I can only hear discord, they taste in my cup of gall a honey-drop of which I do not even dream. There is no ex aggerated duty.
