The river is now falling rapidly
at i'tttsbtrg and is about stationary
at Cairo. If no heavy rains occur
in the upper Ohio, tte fall will soon

about 3-tenths every 24 hours.

Mra. Josephine Louis Newcomb,
of New Orleans, died in New York
li.st Monday. Mrs. Newcomb leaves
her entire fortune, with the excep
tion of a few legacies, to be used in
the support and mainttinance of II.
Sophie N!wcnomb Memorial College
for the higher education of girls.
This college is a part of Tnlane Uni
versity of New Orleans. Mrs. New
comb had already given $7.50,000 to
this college named in memory of her
daughter. She then leaves the resi
due of her fortune, estimated at from
$2,000,000 to $3,000,000 to the sup
port of the college.
The Catahouls News speaks our
sentiments exactly when it says that
*for two campaigns we have fol
lowed and supported the IIon. W. J.
Bryan as the leader and the nominee
of the Democratic party, but his re
cent action in urging the voters of
St. Louis to knife the Democratic
nominee and vote for a. Republican,
is something that we cannot endorse,
and it is so contrary to our views as r
to what constitutes a Democrat, that a
we are ready to say and believe the
party will refuse to consider Mr.
Bryan. or any one else who follows ac
course like that. Loyalty to the
party and its nominees is the only
standard, take it all in all, by which
you can measure the Democracy of p
any man." tl
The Treasury Department hasf,
issued the following notice: "Alll
documentary and proprietary reven
ue stamps in the hands of the pur
chasers on and after July 1, 190i,
will be redeemed hby tile government
under the provision of act of May
1900. Such stamps shouti be pre
sented for redemption by the owners P
thereof to the collectors of internall
revenue from whom they were pur-.
chased, who will supply the appli- I
cant with necessary forms nod in- N
structions for the preparation of his '
claim. It is probable that the regu- .,
latious will prepare and issue provid- -
ing for the redemption of imprinted t.
documentary stamps without requir- i:
Ing the destruction of the checks or .
drafts on which they are imprinted."
The Rising Sun (Ind.) Recortkr tr
gives its readlers the following infor- t
mation about the Natioual Cemetery mff
at Vicksburg: "At the U. S. Mili- hil
tary Cemetery, near Vicksburg.
Miss., on the entrance gate is the fa
following: "Here fell 16,600 bravel in
soldiers.of the United States, who "
died in the cause of their country." !it
The driveway is in terraces. It is a t
hill, probably forty feet in height, ni
and the entire cemetery is terraced, M
the graves being uplon the level dt
ground of each succeeding elevation. to
It is adornedt with tlowers and well to
kept, and said to be one of the most yo
beautiful cemeteries. On the highest wI
pomint of the hill, during the siege,
"'Whistling Dick," probably the
largest cannon used by either side,
was located. It deflied steamboats to tol
p-ass lown the river, or the union it,
rcty" to com unlr- it." r
TEXAS AND PACIFIC SUR
Below we publish an article from
the Coneordia Sentinel, in which it
says that the engineers of the Texas
& Pacific Railway have their en
gineers in the field, and no doubt will
come on up the river as fast as possi
ble, which is a gratifying piece of
news. It is almost authoritatively
said that Mr. Gould will build this
road, and will not delay in doing it.
It looks like it, from the fact that the
road-bed is about completed from
New Roads to Red River, and that
-T the building of the bridge across this
stream has been started. Another
thing that causes us to believe that
this road will be built without delay
is that the Gould's own both ends of
the road-at Vidalia and at Arkansas
- City-and with the gap built be
tween these two places, it will short
- the distance over one hundred
miles beween New Orleans and St.
Louis, and which will give them a
through line on this side of the river.
The Sentinel says:
A surveying party of some ten
people is camped at Concordia.
This party has instructions to run
a survey from a point on the New
Orleans and North Western at Con
cordia to Helena, Ark., as rapidly
as possible. The line will keep to
in- the right of the chain of lakes lying
of just back of the river front. This
cc, will make the line miss St. Joseph by
tic about three miles. From all ac
he counts it is quite evident that after
in all the surveys are definitely located,
that work will begin on the construc
tion of this extention at several pla
ces, so that it can be completed as
rapidly as possilde. Work will li)
on doubt be started at Helena, coming
south, and at Concortdii. north and
at either Concordia or Vidalia to the
south. Work is now being pushed
on the extension north from, New
i-Rhodes. As to whether the North
Western will be tapped at Vidalia or
crossed at Concordia by the Texas
ly nd Pacific is a point to be finally
determined by an actual survey.
r iOne of the engineers is authority for
ur; the statement that without having
on actually run a line he was of thie
opinion that the line would require
nt too much work to come up the
swamp and connect at Concordia,
ril but lie said that can only be settled
it by actual survey. As to whether the
of line will enter \idalia or cross the
North Western at Concordia is of
0, vital interest to Vidalia. We can
only hope that the route to Concor
ýd dia from the south will be found im
8, practicable and that the connection
will be made at Vidaiia.
Concordia, mentioned in the above
article, is a station nine miles west of
rk the town of Vidalia, on the North
SWestern road, and it would he too
P' bad if the north and south road
in would pass that distance from the
1. flourishing town of Vidalia.

as to the doiiings of Cola's road. On ac
