Victor M. Aubrv. The Centennial Celebration. On December 14th next, one hundred years will have passed since the death of (ieonre Wash ington. the hero to wlio^tfeneral ship and good judgment the I ni ted States largely owes her inde Jiendenee, and who for eight years after was the first President of the young republie. Many names have been added to the ever increasing and now long list of American heroes. Yet among these none are more prom inent than that of George Wash ington. It is true the last war has given us Dewey, Schley, Hobson, Wheel er, Funston and others to whom the people turn with gratitude for their deeds of valor; the civil war gave the country Lee, Jackson, Grant, Beauregard, Farragut, Sherman, Semmes and many others; the war of 1812 furnished General Jackson and others, yet the brilliancy of General Wash ington's name has not been dimmed, nor is it the less grate fully remembered. The Masonic fraternity of this city propose to celebrate this oc rasion with a speech and a supper. Their reason for so doing are that George Washington was a Mason, and while the general public re member him with gratitude as tin "Father of Our Country," he is re membered by the Masons as A BROTHER also. This speech will be delivered in tin* opera house by Hon. Charles F. Buck of New Orleans, P. G. M., one of the brightest Masons and one of the most brilliant ora tors in the state, hence, we can look forward to an intellectual treat. To this the general public is cordially invited, and we hope the opera house will be filled. The supper will be given to the Masons and their wives, daughters, sisters, sweethearts and friends; each Mason will have the privilege to invite one lady to enjoy the feast with him. Here toasts will be made, and general good fellow ship will prevail. All this in honor of the memory of Brother George Washington. W. | i The Jackson Bulletin says that a little boy in a neighboring town was required to write an essay the other day. "The newspaper" was the subject, and here is the result: "I don't know how come news papers to In* in world; I don't think Hod does for he haint got nothing to say about them, and editors, is not in the Bible. I think the editor is one of the missing links you read about and stayed in the brush till after the flood nnd then come out and wrote the things up and has been here ever since. I never saw a dead tin Our paper is a mighty poor un; the editor goes *tbout underclothes all winter, don't w ear no socks and pa haint paid subscription in more'n five years."—Ex. We live in "free America" but when a person reads the following, which we take from the last issm of the Louisiana Plantet»' Journil, he is apt to conclude that there is a siring to our liberty : We have hitherto mentioned that lUobmoud, Va., hail an ordinance, fining |2 any person caught spitting on the sidewalk Chariot e, N. C. imposes a fine of #10 tor the same offense. San Francisco is not be hind but aho imposes a fine for the filthy habit. A millionaire, who had been fined, fought the or dinance in coii.'t for a year and had to submit to imprisonment, and pay a fine and the costs We see that in Helena, Moutana, the other day, V. S. Senator Carter was arrested j I and fined for the name offence. This Ureal progrès*, «heu people are . mule to respect the comforts and | rights of others. Some ci tie-« pro i bibit smoking in public places or ! on the street, and that should be lone generally. A Missouri editor whose wife is a strong woman's suffragist, has sprung the follow ing base I rhyme on his readers: "Roekabyj baby your mamma is gone; she's j at the circus, and will betill dawn: j she's wore papa's trousers, and in them looked queer. Roe k a by baby, your mamma's a terror; she's run three conventions declared for three fellows; she's great on tin straddle, way up on a vote, so hushaby baby, your papa's the 'goat'. Rockaby baby, the dishes are clean, papa's done scrubbing and put on tin* beans; your mamma is late, seems always to lag, but heaven help papa if she comes home with a "jag".—Webster Signal. Everybody along the Teehe com plains of the dreadful odor from the polluted water. The cause of this is well known and we do not believe that the sugar planteis who use the Teelie for the escape of skimming, etc., feel that it is right; we believe that a majority of the planters are w illing to make other arrangements for the pump ing of this bad water and refuse matter. If a move is ever made for the purifying of the Teelie, it would be accomplished. By run ning this water into the fields, it would soon lose it poisonous effect and bad odor. We hope that some action will be taken before the next season and that we will be relieved of this nuisance. Last week, the dead fish in the Teelie accumulated a round the water pipe of the Oak Lawn mill so much, as to stop the water from going to the mill. This should suggest to the planters the necessity of using their fields and the swamps for this matter.—St Mary Vindicator. j i j Crow by, La. Dec. 2 —A fire which slatted in a mysterious man. lier destroyed Acadia College to night,, at 8 o'clock, involving a loss of nearly #40,()0U. The fire depart ment r< ached the scene shortly after the al inn was sounded but the ool ivge was «U uated beyond the power hou«e, which supplies the water for the town, so the firemen were help less to save the building. It is be lieved that the fire was started in the rafters from a tine, hut this is only theoiv. The students were in their rooms the the in in is j when was given and they made a rush lo get out of the build ing many of them not taking the time to save any of their effects. The fir.i fanned rapidly and soon the tiig building and almost all of the contents were a mass of mins. Fortunately, there was no loss of life, but some of the students and professors had marrow escapes. Acadia College was built in 1891 and was 140 leet front, 200 feet leep and throe stories high, cost ing about #20,000. It was first con luctnl by Cherry Bros., debt of #50,000 was in urred all of the pre motirs except Me-srs. W. W. l)u son, 11. T. ('Ink and Dr. lï. R Lyons withdrew. These three gentlemen conducted it ever since without receiving any income from their investments in the college, as it w is benefical to the town of Cr iw ley Piof. J. T. Barrett look cl arg# of the college a few years ag-», be ginning with twenty six pupils, and at the lime of the tiie there wert 300 studeuts on the rolls, wi h 100 of them boarders. Only two of the eight fine pianos that were in the buildii g. were save 1. There was about *10,000 insur ance on tin- huildingaud furnishing. Prof. Lloyd Barrett, a brother of Piot. I. T.

An anxious friend came to inquire about the circumstances and then j exclaimed argumentatively :— " Why, goodness gracious man, they can't put you in the pillory, just for debt ' " •'Perhaps not,'' replied the victira of mistaken justice ; " but here I an:. * — « The seemingly impossible often comes true. If a man should tell his friends that he was dying of indigestion many of them would exclaim: 'Why, man, indigestion isn't a killing complaint!" His all-suffi cient answer would be, "It is killing me." The fact is, indigestion in the full sense of the term is the most killing of all com plaints. The worst diseases that flesh is heir to, have their beginnings in bad diges tion. People who die of wasting illnesses and blood diseases are simply starved to death because the stomach and blood-mak ing glands don't furnish sufficient nourish ment to feed the constitution. Most of the people who die of consumption die because their lungs can't get enough good blood from the digestive organs. When these fail to do their work and a torpid liver allows the circulation to be come choked up with bilious poisons, the whole system is laid wide open to every form of malignant and fatal malady. People by hundreds write every day to Dr. Pierce, at Buffalo. N. Y., declaring that his "Golden Medical Discovery " has cured them of some dangerous illness that the doctors could not master : yet all that this "Discovery" does is to enable the diges tive and nutritive organism to make good blood, and gives the liver power to keep it pure. Nature does the rest. An instance of how the digestive organ ism affects the whole body for good or evil is shown in the case of a little girl living in Chase (Chase Co.), Nebraska. Her father, Mr. C. C. Rummell, in a grateful letter to Dr. Pierce, writes: " In February, 1895. our little girl had .1 severe attack of grip. It settled in her stomach, caus ing inflammation of stomach and bowels We had two doctors who gave up the case: the third relieved her: but September found her helpless, in fact a mere skeleton. Our doctor being fifteen miles away it was almost impossible to go to him once a week, so concluded to trv Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery and • Pleas ant Pellets.' Nine bottles cured her. Our bill to other doctors was one hundred dollars, and to Dr, Pierce, only nine dollars." A new lease of life is given by this mar velous " Discovery " to all who are victims of mal-nutrition. It creates a vital activity of the entire system which promotes the elimination of poisonous disease germs and wasted tissue and the rapid building up of solid, muscular flesh. L,. S. Finney, Rsq., of Amelia, Alleghany Co., N. C., writes : " After recovering from a spell of typhoid fever, I was taken with a terrible cough. After trying several remedies and all to no avail I decided to try Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Dis covery. After taking one lxrttle I felt greatly relieved, and after using seven bottles I was entirely cured. Dr. Pierce's medicine is all it is claimed to be. It is worth its weight iu gold to suffering humanity," For thirty years Dr. Pierce lias been chief consulting physician of the Invalids' Hotel and Surgical Institute of Buffalo, N. Y., where he has had probably a more exten sive and practical experience in treating obstinate chronic diseases than any other physician in America. His remarkable prescriptions have an unmatched reputa tion throughout the English - speaking world as the most marvelously efficacious remedies ever devised. They are the result of genius, experience and scientific common sense. His famous " Favorite Prescription " for women Is unquestionably the most perfect and suc cessful remedy ever invented for every form of female complaint. Taken in con junction with the " Golden Medical Dis covery, " the two constitute a complete and effective course of treatment for weak, nerv ous, overwrought women. )A copy of Dr. Pierce's great thousand page illustrated book the "Common Sense Medical Adviser," will be sent free of charge on receipt of 21 one-cent stamps, to pay the cost of mailing only ; or for 31 stamps a heavier cloth-bound copy.
