caused by his own hands. It turns
out now that the whole of the de

the noted train robber-but only
after they saw him cold in death
did they let this information out.
The New Orleans Titues-Demo
crat had its annual distribution of
toys to the poor children of New
Orleans on Christmas day. It says
that "through the generosity of its
friends it was able to provide dolls
and toys for 10,000 boys and girls
of the poorer classes, most of whom
would otherwise have had nothing
in the way of remembrance for thii
happy day." All praise to the gen

The Manstfield Journal of DeSoto

was adopted placing the liquor
license for next year at i5.000. It

GEN. CATCHINOS' PLACE ON THE
RIVER AND HARBORS
A stecial from \Vashinton a,, the
' Times Democrat says that'Congress
man Ranadell, of Louisiana, has a
strong backing for CongresRman
Catchiugs' place on the rivers and
harbors committee when the latter
retires. Mr. Raundell has already
served one term in Congress, and is
thoroughly identified with the levee
and river interests, as his district
extends from Red river to the Ark
ansas line, and is especially a
Mr. Ransdell is being urged for
the place on this must important
committee by the Louisiana Sena
tors, as well as by a number of
Congressmen vitally interested in
levees and river imnprovements, and
also by Gen. ('atchings himself,
who is a warm friend of Mr. Rans
dell. --Vicksburg Post.
No better selection could be made
from Southern C(ongressmen. Mr.
Ranadell's main fort lies in his un
tiring energy; and a position on the
the river and harbors committee de
mands, above all things else, an
energetic man. Being thoroughly
identified with the interests of the
SMississippi Valley, Mr. Ransdell
would be a most valuable man for
this section of country, and we be
lieve that, should he be appointed
to fill Gen. Catchings' place, be will
prove himself to be the equal of the
distinguished Mississippian. The
Banner-Democrat hopes to see our

Where Will the Twentieth Century
t First Dawn.
rt If the change of the centuries took
place at either of the ecuinoxes
March :2d or September 22d-ther
since on those days the earth's axis
is at right angles to the place of tht
e orbit, and there is equal day and
a- night all over the world, the matter
i. would he very easily (lec!led. Tlºt
dawn-line would coincide with the
date line, and from pole to pdle th
first sun of the new century would
l- rise at the same moment.
But, unfortunately, this is not so.
and the consequence is that the line
rk of dawn, as it sweeps round the earth,
first touches the date-line to thb
r, south of the equator, and then gradu.
d ally creeps up this line till it leave:
rd it far to the north. So the first sur
of the twentieth century will rise or
the places along or near the date-lint
d in the order of their position, fron
'd the south upwards.
Now there is no land along thit
line from the Antarctic circle tc
ie Antipodes Island, hence this tin3
o spot of earth will first see the twen
tieth century dawn. A few minutes
a later Bounty Island will see it
d. Then it will sweep along the north,
s east coast of North Island, Ne,
Zealand, then over Vanua Levu it
the Fiji Islands. Next it will shint
on the scattered coral islets of thl
Ly Ellice group, and after traveling
tb about nine degrees more to the north,
the light-tide will touch the crossing
of the dawn-line and date-line at f
0 Two hours and five minutes will
f have to pass before it reaches the
w- banks of the Yarra. In six hours
and twenty-five minutes it will gill
the temples and palaces of Calcutta.
In nine hours and tifty minu:es it
will be flowing over Lion's Head, and
sdown the rugged sides of Table
Mountain. In twelve hours and
twenty-five minutes it will have
Scrossed Montmantre, and touched the
i base of Eiffel 'ower in Paris. Five
. minutes later it will have passed the
cross of St. Paul's and be flowing up
Fleet street. In seventeen hours and
twenty minutes from the time it
crossed the dawn-line it will be flow
Sing round the feet, of the Statue of
Liberty and in three hours more it
will have reached the Golden Gate.
rThence it will cross a stretch of ocean

Physicians, Midwives and Health
Officers Required to Report
all Births and Death.
The Chief has received from the Lou
isiana State Board of Health a circular
relative to the collection of vital sta
tisaics, embracing an explanatory
I synopsis of the new state law on the
r subject, which is designated as Act No.
162 of 1900. The law went into effect
August 14, but judging by Ascension
e parish there has been little or nothing
yet done towards securing its enforce
Sment. The matter was mentioned at
the meeting of the parochial health
a board held on the 2nd lust, howcver,
and it may be assumed that steps will
r soon be taken to set the machinery ol
it the statue in motion here.
L- Act 162 makes it obligatory on all
f physicians and midwives throughout
the' state of Louisiana to file with tLc
d health officer of their respective par.
F ishes a quarterly record of the birth,
iand deaths which have occurred it
8" their practice. stating causes of deat Is.
! In parishes which have no health offi.
le cer the records must be filed with thi
coroner. Provision is made for sup.
r plying report blanks only to healti
1 oflicers and coroners, hence until bet
;e ter arrangements are eflected physi.
cians and midwives must report b)
e letter or postal card. Death reports
n should tuenti'n name of person. color
v sex, age tud cause of death; birth re.
ports should give color, sex and name
e of family. Physicians are requested
11 by the state board to report births and
r deaths in instances coming to their
knowledge where no midwife or phy.
e sician has been in attendance.
d The ctrcular contains' explanations
11 and instructions relative to reports ol
parish and tcwu health officers and
e urges that the reports for October, No
ie vember and l)ecember be forwarded tc
ir the secretary of the state board withir
the first week ofJanuary.
P Violation of any provision of thb
new law' is made a misdeomeanor. pun
