Death of Capt. Meak.
We learn with extreme regret of the test
death of Capt. Merrill Monk, one of the Fri
oldest and most respected citizens of Clai- ance
borne parish. Capt. Monk had been ill for istel
a long while, having been stricken with W.
paralysis several weeks ago. He leaves cult
many children, who will do honor to his Bae

Cotton received in this market up to for
present date has been 732 bales. This, we
are informed, is a decrease from last year's \
receipts up tc onme date of nearly 700 bales. lenl
Two reaotis ate given for the decrease, tior
one that the crop is really much smaller; Atl
the other that manty, if not all planters, poe
prtfer to gather the crop entirely and not In
bring it to market by piece-meal.

Our friend M. Recs Bryan, who has made
up the tableau for the assessor, furnishes
us the above statement of the assessment,
which will be found Interesting.
Degradis the Press.
We publish this week an extract from
the Rural Times, of which able Journal our 1
aged biend D. F. Head is editor, the said
extract beaded "Degrading the l'ress." A
right good article it is, and one, too, which 1
we cordially endorse. We regret that the
unfair criticism of the Morehouse Clarion
should worry our friend so much. It seems
to us that there are many good arguments
in favor of a convention which might be
used to the exclusion of a petty and even
contemptible insinuation like that of the
Clarion-that the opposition of the Rural
Times to a convention finds its inspiration
in the fact that the editor of that honest
sheet is a parish judge. And it makes the
matter no better for another journal to say
that this class of itniuuatory argnment was
begun by an auti-couveuuti editor. The
wrong act of no individual nmakes right the
wrung act of another. The reputation of
Judge Head is so high that those who Ii
know him best repel with scorn so foul an tl
Prun tlA stteontt we publlt It wil5
lie seen that the assessment of this parish qi
for thtsyearhis$00,90. This isan increase
over last year's assesamnent of over one huon
dred thousand dollars. Even this increased or
assessment is entirely too small, andt does t
not nearly represent the value of property
and investments in this parish. This, how- e
ever, is the flmlt of individuals rather thant A
oflcials. Talpayers have a weakness fo
swearing to a cheap valuation of property b
when it is being assessed. a
At the late term of the District Court in ,
this parish Swabe Howell, charged with U
manslaughter, was sentenced to fifteen
years in the penitenttiary.
Josh Stewart, charged with mayhem,
plead gailty, and was sentenced to five 1
years in penitentiary. I
Iiob Williams, charged with hogatauling, i
sentenced to sixty days in parish jail.
Marcue Elia, found guilty of assault,
fined If and cost of proeention.
Many individuals are likely to complain
of the cost to the pariah of a lengthy sen
tence to the parish jail. All each are in
Surmed that there is really lesa cost to the
pariah in a sixty days sentence to the jail
than in carrying a prisoner to the penite

The editor of the country paper is sup- B
posed to see all things in his community
and from such sight to make beneficial
suggestions. It will therefore not be taken
amiss if we p/opose that something in the
way of repairs should-be effected with the
organ in the Methodist Church. Professor 0
Wheeler can doubtles relieve the groaning
and creaking of the pedals, the noise of FA
which can be heard over the house.
We regret greatly that it was not in our
power to visit the Conference of the Pro B
testant Methodist Church at Shady Grove. to
Friends who were present say the attend- She
ance was large and the ability oLthe mrm
isters striking. At this Conference James
W. Harper, D. D., was assigned to the cir- C
cuit lately flled by Dr. Hickerson. Mr.
Harper is a minister of great ability. We
have been assured that he will preach in
Homer semetime soon. If he does his ap
pointment will be announced, and we ask
for him a large congregation.
s We have not the space to publish the
.lengthy and rather amusing eommnniea
tion handed un by a young friend from
Athens last week. The arti'.le does not
, possess sufficient general in .rest to war
rant the use of the quantity of space that
would be demandet for its publication.
Besides, the writer violates a cardinal rule T
with printern. He writes on both sides of
Homer Price Current.
