or Proponed New City Hall by Clare
Allen of Jackson.
Clare Allen the well known Jackson
Architect, was in the city Friday,
ubmittlng plans for the proposed
new city hall to be built on Pleasant
treet on the lot recently purchased
by the city.
The design submitted by Mr. Allen
is a ouiiuing mat win cost aooui $10,-
000 and can be seen In A. B. Hull's
show window. Other firms will sub
mit plans and it is thought that the
lateness of the season will make it
unadvisable to hold a special elec
tion thi fall and that the proposition
will be submitted at the next spring
Mr. Allen's design is a very neat one
and would add very much to the ap
pearance of our city, and the need of
city hall is evidenced by the fact
that the city is paying a Urge rent
each month which is waste money
compared to owning its own property.

Kev. Carman Srunir Good Scheme
011 Congregation Hun day
Rev. A. O. Carman gave his Con
gregation a plain but very excellent
talk from his pulpit Sunday morning,
reviewing the work for the past five
years as their pastor and showed that
notwithstanding the new church had
not been built, there was no cause in
the least for discouragement.
The old Indebtedness had been paid
and the society was very much alive,
he urged upon the membership to
stand loyally by the new pastor to be
sent here by the Conference and pre
dicted that the work would go . for
ward in all departments and receive
the blessing of God. At the close of
the sermon he referred to the side
walk necessary to be built and hung
up a diagram back of the pulpit show
ing that 78 blocks were required to
cover.the church property frontage,
and that each block would cost two
dollars. In a remarkably short time
every block was taken and the minis
ter, committee, trustees and congre-
T gation were happy.

Kastorla a city of lf',0(!0 population
has been wiped out at the hands of
the merciless Turk
The horrors of the massacre of
nearly the entire population are said
to reach the climax of all of the bar
baric atrocities known in the history
of the world. The city was a sea of
blood. Death and carnage lurked in
every nook and corner and only a very
few of the unhappy inhabitants es-
aped to the country when the Turk
ish soldiers swooped down upon them.
The city was burned and the massa
cre of its inhabitants was indescrib
ably terrible. The Turks slaughter
ed indiscriminately Bulgarians and
Greeks, men. women and children.
Late dispatches state that Europe
is so stirred up over the awful atroci
ties that she Is about to Intervene
and endeavor to put a stop to the
carnage if possible.
