Nlmrods Required to Take-Owt Only One License Under the New Law. Assistant Att rney General R. (f. PleasMat has given an opinion oin the widely mootedl (iestion as to- whether or not the huncter's license issued under the new game ]naws is a State or parish license. Taxi Collectors thmroughout the State havae teen hitherto at sea regarding the exact character of this license. It has been contend ed that the hunter's license is a parish permit and the money ac cruing from, itw sale should he covered into the parish treasuries. II this view of. the question oh tained; IuntMes would have to se cure a license in each parish which they. entered for hunting purl,os es. The opinion of the assistant attoriaey general is,.however, that it is a State license. The money goes to, the State Treasury and hunters will be permitted to hunt under it, allover the State. The opinion was given at the riqdest of Non. John Fitzpatrick, T'ax Collector for the parish of tleaus. It is- containedt in tdie ftollwing, letter to that official: N .w ()ORI.EN, IA., Sept. 15, 1!K0S. Hon. John Fitzpatrick, State Tax Col lector, Parish of Orleauns, New Or kIans, Ia: DEAR SIR-Yonr letter of this instant relative to the question as to whether a hunter's license, granted under Act No. 278 of 1908 by the.tax collector of any particular parish, would convey the right to the hunter to hunt in the other parishes of the State without procnring additional'licerses for each parish. was promptly received Sy me, antf in reply thereto, I beg to state, in my opinion, one license would convey such a right. Section 6 of the act spelaks of the li 'nsme as a 'state hunting license.' Section 8 provides that. it shall he the ditty of the game and fish wardens to see that 'every person hunting in this State hals in his peaseesion a license,' except where-sawsidnt hunts on hi. ,own land, thus showing that one officail' license lhall'cover the State. '" 1 ,re is nothing whatever in the act whi.-h .Chows ,that these 'state hunting Ikelnis,' ibaed by any tax coileetor, shall be operative only in the parish in •which they are issued. O(athe contrary, the spirit and context. of the act indicates that these State li renses have State-wide application. No power is given to the parish to levy, collect or use the moneys derived from these licenses. Said proceeds are remitted by the various tax collectors to the Auditor of the State and are dis bursal on warrants issued by the State ioard of Commissioners for the protec tion of birds, game and fish, created by the above-mentioned'act. Very truly yours, R. (;. PLEAs.\NT, Assistant Attorney ;seneral. Hewitulilgh Schul Patrs Act N'ewellton, La., Sept. 21.-The pntrons of the Newellton IHigh cBohool held a meeting in tshe ligh School Building to-day for the purpose of taking such steps as they may find i;ecessary to place- thia: High.

STANTON-ADAMS. The most prominent soeial event of the season, and one which at tracted to our city a great Ium her of visitors from the parish and from abroad, was the Stanton Aams weddihng, which was sol enfmizedl on Tuesday evening, Sep tenibher 22nd, at 7 o'clock, in the unIioL Church. Mr. J. Maury St.alnts'n, the groom, is a native of Adams county, Miss., amId is a represent ative o,, a fni+y that has since the earliest history of that county ,been prominenlt in its social, po litical and business life. For the iast six years lie has made his home in 'I'eness parish, where he has closely identified himself with its highest interests, and has has gained the respect and warm friendship, of all with whom, he bUs been associated. Miss Elizabeth Drake Adams is the daughter of AIr. and Mrs. Franklin O. Adams, members of two families whose names have been.allied with the life, growth and development of this their native parish since its beginning. 'lThe bride; by her charm of per son and many accomplishments, has won the hearts and ardent admiration of a large circle of friends, whose appreciation of her many graces was evidenced bly the number who were present to wish. the young cou-le God speed on their journey of wedded life. The church was beautifully dec orated, the grac.ful fronds of maiden hair fern, the cool, green palms and the rich glow of gold on rod conspiring to carry out the color scheme of green and yellow. To this were added fee toons and wreathes of evergreen and a profueion of potted plants, which had been wrought into beautiful effect by loving hands. P'receding the entrance of the bridal party, Miss Marjorie Da vidson, in the soft, full tones of a perfect Mezzo-soprana, sang, "I Love You Truly." Then break ing upon the hushed expectancy of the guests, came the inspir -ing strains of Lohengrin's im mortal wedding march, rendered by Miss Lila Hunter. The bride entered upon the arm of her father, preceded by the Maid-of-Honor, Miss Bessie Gal loway, and was met at the altar by the groom, accompanied by his brother, Mr. Aaron Stanton, act ing as "best manl." The impressive service of the Methodist-Episcopal Church was pronounced by Rev. Dr. Alex Watkins of Jackson, Miss. The groomsmen were, Messrs. Frank Adams of New Orleans, William Adams of Natchez, Chas. Reid of Canton, and Bruce Bax ter of Chattanooga. The bridesmaids were, Misses Cecil Rawvle of Natchez, Eliza Whitney of Villa Clara, Lyda Martien of Waterproof, and Alice Davidson of St. Joseph. The ushers were, Messrs. Em mett Newton, Carneal Goldman, Victor Sedden ~nd Jno. T. Moore. The bride was becomingly at tired in a white messoline satin, directoire gown, with trimmings of point lace and bands of silver embroidery. The graceful folds of her white talle veil wore held in place by sprays of orange blos sums. She carried a shower bou quet of white roses and lillies of the valley. The Maid-of-HIonor's dress was a white crope-de-chine, empire, trimmed with lace, and richly embroidered. The bridesmaids wore white crepe-deo-chine and yel low sashes, and carried bouquets ,f yellow roses. After the ceremony the bridal party and guests were entertained st a reception at the home of the bride's aunt, Mrs. B. F. Bonney, where delicious refreshments were served, and the bride and groonm. received the congratulations and well wishes of their numerous rriends. The happy couple were the re :ipl)ients of many handsome and 3ostly presents of silver and crys Al, rare ornaments, and many ther articles contributing to heir more material comforts. The bride and groom left im mediately after the reception for bridal tour, from which they ill return to this parish, making heir home in the future ou This le Ridge plantation. Quite a party of gentlemen rom this section went out to the 'eisas in automobiles this week Sa hunting, and fishling expedi io . Iridns ad Eya. (For BoYs.) Only a little way from the Edi tor's home two boys, about twelve Iyears of age, one day lately were in a boat on a pond. They upset their boat asid one of them who could not swim clasped the other aromid the neck. Before the lat 'ter was drntggedl under the water he cried for help. A boy who ten years ago was run over by a trol ley car and one leg cut off above and the other below the knee, anid his right arm cut off near the elbow, was sitting with some boys and' showing them his artificial legs, which he had taken off. The mutilated boy, hearing the cry for help; not stopping to put on 'his wooden legs (for in the years he had been without them he had learned to run on the stumps), hustled to the pond, crying, "Hold fast! I am comingl" lie swam out, grasped the two lads, pulled them apart, and, swimming with onr hand pushed one of the boys s ashore; then he returned and brought the other out. When the bF oys had revived they carried their rescuer to his home. This is hard to believe, but it is true, I and should teach every boy to r make the best of himself, never giving up. If a boy with energy and brains could do this with only one sound arm and no legs, what should not a boy be able to do who has two arms and two f legs? Any well boy who will do his best can get along in the world, and many who are sick, Ilind, deaf, or lame get along wonder - fully well.-Christiaar Advocate. 1 A good, heavy rain feli to-day which was needed to fill many f cisterns.

On Sunday evening last the pas senger was delayed some time just above St. Joseph by a wrecked box-car, which quitted the rails, the trucks breaking loose and im bedding in center of track. A work engile was pulling some 75 bad order empties from McGehee down to the Ferriday shops when the accident occurred. After an hours work tihe ear was rolled down the embankment and the track cleared. Mr. H. L. Smitha, the popular liveryman, publishes notice to day that after October 1st, he will discontinue credit fares oni his hack line. This system has been so greatly abused, and col lections so slow and frequently impossible, that this step has be come necessary if hie is to main tain the superior service for which his stable is so justly famed. For this reason he has determined upon the better method to be hence forth in vogue of exacting cash fares of all passengers, the same as required by railroads and street ears, and he states positively that there will ibe no favoritism showln and no exceptionls made, but all who ride must pay cash fare. Prof. R. C. Groesbeek, princi pal of the Waterproof High School, and one of the most progressive educators of Tensas parish, ever alive to whatever may make for tile beet interests of his school or promote entusiasm in edncation al work, has arranged for a series popular attractions to appear in the large alnd comnfortable audi toriam of the Waterproo, High School during the coming winter. The first engagement is with the Hon. Luther Manship, noted hu morist and now Lieutenant Gov ernor of Mississippi, whose date is fixed for Thursday, 15th Octom ber. Gov. Manship is well known in Tensae, having visited St. Jo seph and Waterproof on several 1 occasions and always drawing large and cultivated audiences, whom he delighted with his won. derfnl versatile wit. As a story ( teller and iml)ersoiator Mr. Man ship has few equals. - Unl Skhwer. The following was intended foz last week's Gazette but reached us too late, hence its appearance to-day. A happy event in the social life this week was the "linen shower" giveu Thursday after. noon by Mrs. B. F. Bonney foi her niece, Miss Elizabeth Adams. As usual the hostess provided novel attractions for entertain ment. The guests assembled itn the parlor, where was suspended ar immense red heart. When the thongs which held the heart to. gether were unloosed by Miss Alice Davidson, Miss Adams, whc sat beneath, was deluged in c shower of linen rielery, embroid ered by loving' friends, laces wrought from Erin's flax an< dainty work from the land of thI Alps. After exclamations of admira tions following the opening oi each new gift were over the guest: proceeded from the parlor to the lawn to try their skill with Cw pid's arrors. The heart, unburdened of it! treasure, was made to serve ai a target, which each young ladJ endeavored to pierce with a dart The successful archeress was Misi Susie Adams, and those less fort unate hope tlat for once t.hi Fates have made a mistake ii their prophesy. Realizing the fatigue that would follow s5 strenuous trial of skill, the fai contestants were refreshed by de, licious ice cream and cake. - ---- er--- Warner & Searles Co., the pop ular Vicksburg clothiers, have something to say to-day of inter eat to fat men.
