The vie m f the conspiracy 
Mrs. Tats Strong, who lived 
her husbad near Holly Pond, a small 
settlement f ew m ii ea distant from 
this place. On last Monday she came 
to Blount; ill e , an d l a t e in the after- 
noon start l home afoot, and while 
trudging f, ng one of the lonoliest 
places on B roa d she was overtaken 
by a wago driven by two men, who 
were stran rs to her, bin who iuvitod 
her to riderith them. When she got 
into the w, on she was blindfolded, 
gagged antorced to lie down, and 
was covere up w ; t h old quilts and 
taken into e mountains. 

Ohristmiday the following note 
was recivec.y Postmaster Bynuin, of 
this place: 

"Camnideout, December 25. 
Mr. Posl Qs ter, please b eu uld nil 
Strong a;- jet him know his wife 
i acsy our hands an she is safe 
uua bouub and if he will bring us ten 
dollars in ielver and a gallon of good 
whiskey hi , can git her. Tel him to 
go out to tl ie ketchum old place at 
miduite toi jito and turn up the river 
bank two b tile until he come to a nut 
hous and it will have a lite in it and to 
leve the mo mey and licker in the Shid 
house, and bis wife will be returned 
to him in gi sod shape, if he don't do 
!. a tel him wo will slit his wife's 
years and If i will h a f to lead her 
around thro ugh life looking like a 
marked hog, now Mister bynum, don't 
fail to atten, 2 to this matter and don't 
you let enni body see this letter." 

On recaipt c f the above the post- 
master madi, haste to see Mr. Strong 
and revealet to him the contents of 
the note, wfc ireupon Mr. Strong wrote 
a note and tl ed it around the neck of 
a jug filled » -1th water and found his 
way to the oi at house and left them 
thore. The uld man's note ren*l en 
follows : 

"My good I friends: 
"Yon thin fe you have brought groat 
trouble on ol e Jack Strong, but you 
haven't, thi rty-one years ago I stole 
patsy from h ar daddy in gorey and 
hit has give i«e more trouble than all 
the rest of c,y steelin. Patsy have 
been a grate . lode on my shoulders and 
I am much o| jlige to you feilers for 
steelin of her and you sertainly have 
my spmpathj . You say you will cut 
her years if I don't anty— cut and be 
drat, l leav« this noot and jug of 
sperits. a hi.ppy Christmas to you." 

The jug of "sperits" turned out to 
be water, and with a red-headed wom- 
an weighing ■ a less than 250 pounds 
on their hand; i the kidnappers were 
no doubt grea |ly disconcerted. 

1 he woman j n the case made her ap- 
pearance at th ■ Blountsville post office 
early on the ■ iorning of the 2C. She 
besought Post master Bynum to take 
up her case wi |h her husband, whom 
her captors hi J told her would not let 
her return home. Mr. Bynum went 
out to see Staing, but could not make 
him feel that i jt was any part of his 
duty to submit to the return of the 
stolen goods. The woman is now at 
Mr. Bynum's I lome. and the latter is 
all torn up anM. at a loss to know just 
how-to unload| his burden. 

Three Valuable Horses 

A stable belonging to H. H. May- 
berry, of Birmingham, was destroyed

together ivith three valuable horses, 
four vehi cles and several sets of line 
harness, the total loss being placed at 
a,bout i,000.

teenth street South, on the rear end 
of Mr. Mayberry's i'oi ■■^ostte the 
residence of W. H. Kettig] and was 
almost entirely consumed before the 
fire department could arrive. The 
fire w£ s discovered by the hostler, 
who gi ve the alarm, but because of 
the coiibuatable material the flames, 
which v ere first seen coming out of 
the roo-, spread rapidly, and in less 
time than j t takes to tell the little 
frame tuilding was wrapped in flames, 
and in a f ew minutes was a mass of 
ruins. Th e hostler made a heroic 
effort tc eave the horses and vehicles,

aud - ou ^ nd a better there near 

the b 

ite. It iK addressed to Mr. Cud- 
See that it is delivered to him 
mally and to no one else." 
rpTlle servant went out at once and 
f ou ud a letter. It was in a plain white 
enT 'elope and was addressed: 

i 'Mr. E. A. Cudahy, Sr., personal 
nn d private." 

Mr. Cudahy, who was then at his 
p.ickrng house in South Omaha, was 
g nmmoued home at once. No oue was 
, jermitted to see the letter at first ex- 

aept Mr. and Mrs. Cudahy. Mr. Cud- 
ahy's intention at the time was to keep 
its contents to himself, as the bandits 
had requested, but later he thought 
better oi it, as he believed that, in the 
bauds of the police, it would prove a 
valuable clew. 

Mr. Cudahy says he has not with- 
drawn the reward, nor will he do so. 
It stands as originally offered. 

The address, as well as the letter, is 
printed in lead pencil. The letter is 
written on common note paper, ruled 
with blue ink, which is scarcely trace 
able. The postmark shows that the 
letter was mailed at the postofflce at 6 
a. m., Saturday, December 22d, show- 
ing clearly that one of the gang of ab- 
ductors was in the postofflce on that 
date, if the letter had the same origin 
as the letter demanding tho ransom. 
That the origin was the same is attest- 
ed by General John C. Cowin, who 
saw both missives. The letter reads: 

"Cudahy; If you value the boy's 
life at the price of a bullet, you will 
withdraw the reward at once, And let 
well anough alone. If you don't do 
this we will finish the job with a bulet. 
If any man, whether gilty or inno- 
cent is ever arrested, a bulet will close 
the boy's mouth. You will think of 
this warning when it is too late — " 

The only marked difference between 
this letter and the letter demanding a 
ransom is in the greater number of 
misnpelled words. This, however, mey 
be affectation, for it will be observed 
that the most difficult words are spell- 
ed correctly, whereas some of the sim- 
ple words are misspelled. 

"Withdraw" aud "reward" are cor- 
rectly spelled, while the comparatively 
easy word "guilty" is spelled "giltly." 


Provisions do Up to Famine Prices 
and Mails Are Cut Off. 

Advices from Cape Colony state that 
Kimberly is almost isolated by Boer 
raiders. No mails had reached there 
from December lUth to December

While the difficulties of the firms 
closely connected with the London 
and Globe division were largely dis- 
counted, the repeated fall of the ham- 
mer Saturday morning caused a great 
sensation. It is feared the full list of 
failures is not yet known. 

The failures involve twenty-eight 
members of the stock exchange and 
are equally divided among jobbers 
and brokers. It is generally regarded 
in the mining market as being the 
blackest day since the Baring smash, 
which was disastrous to all depart- 
ments. This crisis, however, did not 
extend to other markets, though most 
of them closed depressed. 

The chairman of the London and 
Globe finance corporation, limited, is 
the marquis of Dufferin and Ava, the 
former governor general of Canada 
and British ambassador to Paris. The 
failure of the concern of which he is 
the head adds one more sorrow to the 
closing chapter of his life, for he is nt 
present preparing to start for South 
Africa, in company with Lady Duffer- 
in, in consequence of the eerious con- 
dition of his son, Lord Frederick 
Temple, the lieutenant in the Ninth 
Lancers who was wounded a few days 
ago at Glenfontein. It is scarcely a 
year ago since Lord Dufferin lost his 
eldest son, the earl of Ava, who died at 
Ladysmith. He is now encompassed 
by family grief and his honored name 
is dragged in the financial mire. 


An Unfortunate Family Is Nearly 
Wiped Out of Existence. 

Some days ago Gottlieb Stacker and 
family, consisting of a wife and half 
grown daughter, a married daughter 
and her husband and babe, left Still- 
water, Oklahoma, in wagons to settle 
on a claim near the Texas line. They 
arrived at their destination Christmas 
day and at once put up tents for tem- 
porary residence. 

When all were asleep a prarie fire 
enveloped them before they knew it, 
and in a few moments everything they 
had was destroyed, and all of them 
nearly perished. The little babe died 
and the mother is blinded and may 
die. The father and son were both 
badly burned, while the seventeen- 
year-old daughter wili lose both feet 
and will likely die.

Sheriff, Attempting Arrest, Was 
Killed, But Got His Han 
Before Dying. 

Three men were killed at Abbeville, 
S. C, Saturday night, including the 
sheriff of the county. About 10 oclock 
several men were having a social game 
of cards in the office of the Miller ho- 
tel. One of them was William Kyle, 
of Ludlow, Mass., who had been su- 
perintending the building of a cotton 
mill at Abbeville, and was to leave for 
his home Sunday. 

John Deusby, a notorious gambler, 
who had killed several men and was 
recently tried and acquitted for tho 
murder of a negro, came into the room 
and began cursing Kyle. Densby was 
drinking and is said to have quarreled 
with the Massachusetts man some 
days ago. He applied a vile epithet 
to Kyle. The latter got up aud re- 
monstrated, but made no show of vio- 
lence. Densby drew a 45-caliber army 
revolver. A bystander gathered his 
right arm. Densby shifted the pistol 
to the left and shot Kyle through the 

The murderer then backed out of 
the room, declaring he would shoot 
any one attempting to follow him. He 
went to the home of his father-in-law, 
Tom Van Cresswell. Two policemen 
persued him, but were held off by 
Densby, who threatened to kill them 
if they advanced. The policemen 
dodged into a. nearby house and tele- 
phoned for assistance. Sheriff R. L. 
Kennedy, with several citizens, re- 

The house was surrounded, the po- 
licemen guarding the windows and 
Kennedy going to the front door. He 
summoned Deusby to surrender. The 
desperado opened the door, came out 
and closed it. Then saying: "Well, 
we will all go to hell together," he be- 
gan shooting, the sheriff's party re- 
sponding promptly. 

Both Kennedy and Densby emptied 
their pistols. The sheriff was struck 
near the heart and in return sent a 
bullet through Densby's chest. Anoth- 
er struck Densby in the leg. 

The sheriff fell on the spot, but 
Densby walked fifty yards and had 
reloaded his pistol when the police- 
men seized and handcuffed him. He 
did not speak after being shot and died 
in an hour. 

The sheriff lived but a few minutes 
and Kyle died at 2 o'clock Sunday 

Densby leaves a wife and one child. 
He was for several years United States 
deputy marshal. He was a noted 
gambler and had been the terror of the 
town for years. The sheriff also leaves 
a wife aud one shild. He was thirty- 
five years old, and in the recent elec- 
tion was elected on the first ballot 
over several competitors. 

Kyle was r.n unmarried man forty 
years old. 


They Ignored Call Issued By fllddle- 
of-Road Populists. 

A conference of Middle-of-the-Road 
Populists met in St. Louis, Mo., Sat- 
urday in response to a call issued by 
J. A. Parker, of Kentucky, chairman 
of the national committee of that 
party. About ninety members of the 
national committee were present in 
person or represented by proxy. W. 
Carlton Barker and Ignatius Donnelly, 
candidates for president and vice-pres- 
deut in the recent election, were not 

Chairman Parker, who opened the 
meeting with a short address, in the 
course of which he said that the con- 
ference was called for the purpose of 
considering the future policy of the 
middle-of-the-roaders, who stand for 
no compromise. He believed in the 
divorcement from both the old parties 
and declared that the fight should bo 
carried forward without any compro- 
mise. Mr. Parker said he had issued 
the call to representatives of all 
branches of the populist party, but 
that the "fusionists" had ignored it 


Secretary Long Buys an Island of 
Guamites For Sum of $900.

the United States government another 
Pacific island, avers the Washington

Robert Morgan attempted to kill a 
Mrs. Tompkins, a young married wo-

Morris had been paying attention to

This paper is entered ia Hip Montevallo

Montevallo, Ala. , Jan. 3, 1901. 


The new year is with us, and 
with its coming every citizen of 
Montevallo should make up his mind 
to do all that he can for our little 
town. With the coming of the Con ■ 
stitutional Convention, means a 
reapportionment of the counties, 
;ind with a little effort on the part 
of our people Montevallo can be 
made a county seat. Parties in Bibb 
and Chilton counties are ready to 1 

salary ($100) to be applied in im 
proving the streets. 

The Sentinel suggests that a 
meeting be called for the purpose 
of nominating a mayor and coun- 
cilmen. so that all who are inter 
ested may have a voice in selecting 
the men for whom they are to vote. 

The election is to be held one 
week from next Monday, and if a 
nominating convention is to be 
held it should be called as early as 

• — 


That Dersistent advertising pays 
is demonstrated in the action of the 
Montevallo Furniture Company 
One year ago that firm con trad- 
ed for an advertisement in The 
Sentinel forone year. Allthrougb 
the year the firm took p'articular 
pains to watch the effects of their 
advertisement. It was taken care 
of just the same as any other 
branch of the business; the reading 
matter was changed frequently 

A citv that cannot, furnish a case 
of kidnapping theso days is woe- 
fully behind the times. 

One week from next Monday is 
our first city election. Montevallo 
cannot be too careful in the election 
of its first officers. 

unite with the people of this section | and every effort was made t0 at . 

of Shelby county in a movement to 
the formation of a new county with 
Montevallo as its county seat. The 
time is now ripe when there should 
bea concerted action looking to 
this end. 

Montevallo should also be a man- 
ufacturing center. With all its 
numerous natural advantages it has 
every inducement to offer capitalists 
who are seeking a location. There 
is plenty of coal, wood and stone in 
this locality, and the water supply 
the finest in Alabama. The climate 
is healthful and the people the best 
on earth. What more can any one 
want? Let all factional differences, 
if there be any, be buried and each 
individual get a hold on the rope 
that means the upbuilding of Mon- 
tevallo and pull, and pull hard. 

factories and mills are being lo- 
cated all over Alabama and with 
the display of a proper public spirit 
we can get our share of them. 

i tract the attention of the public. 
What is the result? 
It has proved so successful — been 
such a good solicitor, that business 
has increased to a considerable ex- 
tent, and this year the firm has 
contracted for a larger space than 
they had last year. Does adver- 
tising pay? Has it paid the Mon 
tevallo Furniture Company? Ask 
Messrs. Bowdon & Shivers, the 
proprietors, and see what they will 

A regular advertisement will in- 
crease any man's business- It 
needs only to be thoroughly tested. 

The Montevallo Furniture Com 
pauy has set a good example, that 
might well be emulated by all our 
busiuess men. 


On Monday, Jan. 14th, the voters 
cf Montevallo will be called upon 
to elect a Mayor and four council - 
men, as provided by the r-l> irter re- 
cently granted by .... act of the 
General Assembly. 

The interest of the people seems 
to center upon the office of Mayor, 
as he will also be acting police 
judge. Mr. Burgess Little appears 
to be the man whom popular opin- 
ion favors for that office. He is a 
good business man, such as Monte- 
vallo needs for mayor at this par 
ticular time, and The Sentinel be 
Moves, as do all we have heard ex- 
press themselves, he would dis- 
charge the duties ol the officp with- 
out fear or favor. When approach 
ed upon the matter Mr. Little said 
he was not seeking the place, but 
if the people of Montevallo wished 
him to be mayor he would, if elect- 
ed , discharge every duty to the 
best of his ability—consider all 
matters that might come before him 
impartially, and to the best inter- 
est of the town and people. He 
further said that the salary of the 
office was no inducement to hi 
and that if he was elected he wou 
refund in the town one half nf tie 


Someday- ago The Advertiser 
used the word "tautology" but it 
went out to the world as"tautogy" 
and The Dothan Home Journal 
wants to know what the word 
means. Thinks it must be Fillipino 
Bless your heart, no. It is pure 
Mergen thaler.— - Advertiser. 

Many states have recently passed 
laws making kidnapping a crime 
punishable with death. That is 
about the proper thing to do. 

The Sentinel would like to make 
a yearly contract for advertising 
with all of the business men of 
Montevallo. When contracted by 
the year the rate is cheaper. 

Cudahy, the Omaha packing 
house man, gave up $25,000 in gold 
to have his little boy returned by 
the kidnappers, and now he hiis of- 
fered $25,000 for the capture of the 
abduc tors. 

Nothing-to-Do Again. 

The Atlanta Constitution made 
the statement a few days ago that, 
(trover Cleveland had voted for 
McKinley, And now Mr Cleve- 
land comes back at the Constitu- 
tion and says he did not vote for 
McKinley. and says further he 
" will in the future pay no atten- 
tion to the untruthfulness of the 
Constitution." It is now up to 
that paper to produce the proof it 
claims to have tnat Cleveland vot- 
ed for McKinley. 

Selma is to have a steet fair be 
ginning Jan. 7th, and to last 
through the week. Its object is to | sheep, 
make business for the merchants of 
Selma through a usually quiet time. 
The people there are energetic and 
no doubt, the weather pernitting, 
the fair will be a success. 

For the past week the y pa 
pers have been full of accidents 
«ud tragedies attendant )n the 
holidays. T.iquor seems to have 
been the cause of most of the tra- 

The ' 'Nothing to Do Circle ' en- 
tertained with another of its de- 
lightful parties on New Years eve 
at the home of Mrs. James L. Mc- 
Conaughy. It was in the nature 
of a surprise this time. Mr. Mc- 
Conaughy had invited a few gen- 
tlemen to spend the eveninu with 
him. A belated guest had each 
particular hair on his head to stand 
erect to see, when he approached 
the house, ghostly visitors flitting 
about the grounds, and his blood 
almost congealed in his veins when 
one of the ' 'spirits," in sepulchral 
tones, bade him advance aud enter 
the house, threatening him with 
torture most cruel if by word or 
sign he betrayed what he had seen. 
Glad to escape even with life he 
flew wi'.hin doors, his heart beat- 
ing a ta'too within him likea churn 
dasher in its efforts to jump out of 
his mouth. 

In a very few minutes there came 
a furious rapping at the door, and 
unlike Poe's Raven, there was a— 
'•something more " In trooped a 
party the members which looked as 
if they had just escaped from Mar- 
di Gras or Tuscaloosa. The char- 
acters were from Mother Goose's 

First came a baby carriage in 
which sat "Bye a baby Buntin, 
Daddy's gone a huntin'," and Baby 
Buntin, represented by Miss Maud 
Allen, was crying as if its p<>or lit-

nurse. Miss Sara Phelan, was us- 
ing every effort to quell the dis- 
turbance . 

"The Queen of hearts who bro't

Maud Reynolds, was persistent in 
her efforts to get rid of her tans.

much about her garden at this time

Eunice Latham.

followed the negro made his escape and 
as yet has not been apprehended.

downs— mostly downs, at least a great 
many of therii do. Jlist visit one's sanc- 
tum and you will find him quietly seat- 
ed in an old rickety chair with the bot-

on the bosom of his pants hanging down 1 
and his elbows sticking through his 
shiit sleeves, being peifectly sockle.-s 
with lis feet encased in a half-tanned 
puir of shoes, and corns all over his 
toes as big as hotel bedbugs, vriting up 
society news and telling the farmers 
how to plant their crops in order to 
produce a large yield, and at the same 
time maybe some fellow is strutting 
about who owes him a dollar on sub- 
scription to his paper, who is wearing 
socks made of silk, a gold ring and a 
line cane, with his bodv laced up in an 
expensive corset. And light then the 
farmer he is advising could sell enongh 
potatoes to pay the editor for his paper'

Cleaning E?gs For Market-Banking Up 
Around Buildings— Feeding; Mash to the 
Fowls-To Find Weight of Live Cattle- 
Feed Cutting-Etc, Etc. 


I have been engaged for ten years In 
buying eggs and shipping tht>m to 
market,- uml in almost every lot there 
have been more or less dirty and 
stained eggs. The only way of clean- 
ing such eggs that I have found to 
give satisfaction was to wet a flue 
sponge, squeeze it as dry as possible, 
and usb it to trash or rub off the dirt. 
As for stained eggs, they are unfit for 
market, and no honest person will sell 
them for that purpose, no matter how 
much they may have been cleaned 
with acids— II. B. Howard, in Agri- 
■cultural Epitomist. 


For banking up around buildings 
sawdust is without doubt the best. 
When it cannot be secured, use partly 
rotted manure, with a largo portion of 
straw In it. That left about old straw 
stacks, around which stock run all 
winter, will do very well if the bank- 
ing, up, is done early, so it can have 
time to settle down before frost. This 
will resist cold wind and keep out 
frost wonderfully, and it will not heave 
or crack by frost, as soil or the more 
heavy kinds of manure will do. Part- 
ly rotted horse manure is also very 
good for banking up around buildings. 


The pet theory of feeding mash to 
fowls early In the morning has been 
exploded by practical tests, which 
prove that fowls cannot be kept thrifty 
when given a full feed of soft mash 
for first meal. 

Fowls must be kept busy, and the 
only sure way to do this Is to give 
only a small portion of what they act- 
ually require for first feed and then 
put the,ra to work . on grain of some 
kind buried in straw or litter. A full 
meal should be given just before dusk 
so that the fowls may go to roost with 
wellrfllled crops. 

A very good system of feeding is one 
heaping tablespoonful of mash, made 
of boiled vegetables, scraps, etc., thick- 
ened with aqual parts of cornmeal and 
middlings, for each grown fowl, given 
as early as the fowls can see to eat, 
then follow this up with one quart to 
each twenty fowls of whole oats, 
wheat millet or cracked corn. 

If this amount apparently satisfies 
the fowls then decrease the supply, 
but be sure to cover entirely with 
straw or litter of some kind, so that 
not a grain can be had without work- 
Home and Farm. 


It is probable that if an accurate 
census of poultry and eggs can be tak- 
en it will be found that the value there- 
of will exceed $300,000,000. This is ah 
enormous sum and throws the "fancy" 
part far into the t-haile. It is the great 
tratnloads of pouHry and eggs going 
to the large cities that show the mag- 
nitude of the poultry industry. With a 
population of 80,000,000 people, and es- 
timating that each person consumes ?3 
worth of poultry and eggs in one year, 
the sum is $400,000,000. Then there 
Is the large number of eggs used in the 
arts. We are still importing eggs, and 
our country does not supply itself. 

While the farmers largely assist in 
this production, yet the cities, towns 
and villages contain thousands who 
keep small flocks. The lien is but a 
small creature, but there are millions 
of hens, and thfty produce something 
every day in the year. In the face of 
a great array of ligures and facts let 
the poultry business have its proper 
place, for it Is the rival of any other. 
Cattle, horses, sheep, swine and even 
wheat are falling to the rear oehind 

And yet It is styled a "fancy" 
business, and breeders fail to com- 
prehend the figures.— Connecticut 
Fa rmer. 


A large proportion of the Iambs 
which are raised in West Virginia for 
the production of mutton are mar- 
keted in the fall, and although this is 
undoubtedly the simplest way of dis- 
posing of the surplus lambs, yet this 
practice possesses some serious de- 
fects, for when animals of any kind are 
constantly being sold from a farm, 
with now and then some hay or grain, 
the fertility of the soil is continually 
carried away, and unless commercial 
fertilizers are employed to supply the 
deficiency of potash and phosphoric 
acid, the productiveness of the land 
must constantly diminish. On the 
other hand, If these lambs can be prof- 
itably fattened during the winter they 
may be made to consume the clover 
hay or other coarse fodder of the 
farm which has only a small commer- 
cial value. 

Also the farmer is enabled to feed 
his grain at home Instead of being 
obliged to draw it several miles to the 
railroad station. In addition to the 
grain which is raised upon the farm, 
some of the concentrated feeding 
stuffs, such as cottonseed meal, linseed 
meal or wheat bran, can generally be 
used to advantage in t lie fattening ra- 
tion, and as each of these materials 
contains a large quantity of nitrogen, 
phosphoric acid and potash, which Is 
recovered in the manure, it is seen that 
when the policy of feeding lambs dur- 

ing the winter is iutelligentlir carried 
out the land will gradually become 
richer, instead of poorer, becat lfi( > more 
fertility will be added by tli* manure 
than is carried away by the lf»mb crop.

There are many rules for Estimating 
the weight of cattle by measurement, 
but one of the authorities oi| the sub- 
ject says that "there is no ru i e that 
Comes nearer than good guessing," am i 
that "no two animals will WvIrIi alike 
according to measurements." xhe same 
authority further remarks that a rule, 
as good as any, is to lind n le SU pe r - 
ticial feet by multiplying the girth, just 
behind the shoulder blade, by ' the 
length from the fore part of ' the shoul- 
der blade to the root of the tail. Thus 
an ox girthing seven feet u | Ile inches 
and measuring six feet iu length would 
contain seven and three-fo m -tii S times 
six, or forty-six and one- Uix if super- 
ficial feet. For cattle, gro ss f e ,i i the 
following is given as the weight per 
superficial foot: 

Girth less than 3 feet , ,n pounds 

Girth 3 to 5 feet " :u pounds 

Girth 5 to 7 feet pounds 

Girth 7 to 9 feet '/^ pounds 

Thus the steer, as per i 10 ove meas- 
urements, should weigh 4<t5o x 31, or 
1,441 pounds gross. Unu£ r this" rule. 
It is usual to deduct one. pound iii 
twenty on half-fatted cattle, from fif- 
teen to twenty pounds on a' cow hav- 
ing had calves and if not fllt an equal 
amount. The author of t n j s n ,] e SU g. 
gesta its use only when the scale is 
wanting, as the scale is the only true 
standard.— Omaha World- Herald. 


I have been asked wl' lilt advantage 
there is in cutting feed; i would say 
the principal advantage i s the saving 
of waste. There is les s opportunity 
for the stock to pick o\-er and select 
out the best than when the roughness 
Is fed whole. Then, too, there is a bet- 
ter opportunity for making up com- 
plete rations, as bran, inlddlings, cot- 
tonseed, and oil meal c a n all be used 
to a good advantage, rather better than 
with the feed given wht,i e . Clover hay 
and bran or middlings, r, in fact, any 
kind of hay or straw run through a 
cutting box and a sm a n quantity of 
ground feed added inai$ es a g00 j ra ^ 
tion for nil kinds of growing cattle, 
sheep or horses. Unth! re shed oats can 
be fed to a good ad Vantage in the 
same way. 

In nearly every case -where ground 
feed is fed, it will pa, y to cut a suffi- 
cient quantity of roughness to mix 
with it in feeding. An -ryin be eaten 
up clean, be more thoroughly masti- 
cated and better dlges ted and the ani- 
mal will secure a la rirer amount of 
benefit, and at the 'same time save 
from thirty to fifty p er cent, of your 
feed. The more we la,k into the ques- 
tion the more I am convinced that if 
the intelligent, econoE a i ca i farmer will 
save everything that f, TO ws on his farm 
suitable for feed, In fi ve years he may 
be independent; able to keep a year's 
supply on hand to tide over an occa- 
sional off year wlieo. it comes. The 
value of corn fodder an d bright straw 
when reduced to a Pulpy mass will be 
surprising, and is enjoyable food for 
the animal and a profitable one to the 
farmer and breeder.-_^yjiiiam II. Pat-

Perhaps you kuov, an orchard in 
which every tree ha a dead limbs on it 
the entire season, '['hey were certainly 
not retained for oi. name nt or utility, 
and that being the case , their reten- 
tion cannot be acc DU nted for, excerit 
upon the supposition that the manage- 
ment has been neg ligent. These dis- 
figuring limbs shoijia have been re-

have been times fl uring the summer 
when they could n ave been taken 
from the trees. ,f the season has 
been as wet in anj, other locality as it 
has been In this section, there has been 
a great deal of time that the farmer 
could hardly emp | oy to advantage in 
ordinary farm r na nagement. The 
ground was too we t to cultivate for 
many days, and the orchard could 
have been greatly improved by lopping 
off dead limbs, u,a burning such por-

Any tree that fl. oe <? not produce good

prune it. If it i iee ds cultivating, cul-

be elaborated, ft jr the necessity of do- 
ing them is wel | known. It ought to 
be well known, too, that a seedling 
tree that is wor thless, ought not to be 
left standing «rithout being grafted. 
Yet I know an orchard that contains

with imposing ceremonies. 


LaFayette College, LaFayette, Ala. 

This institution has just closed its flrst 
terms under its new President. Dr. E. E. 
Eldridge, who so successful y organized and 
managed the Troy Normal College for 11 
years. The llr.H term's enrollment is nearly 
up to the full session enrollment in former 
years, and the second term to open Jan. 2d, 
and the third to open March 25th, will each 
add many, so that it is expected the total 
current year's enrollment will be a half 
more than evar before in the college's his- 
tory. The course of study was made two 
years higher for graduation and a post 
graduate oourao of two years was added 
still, so that requirements and privileges 
are very high under a strong faculty of 
above twenty members. This college is 
striving to give the best at the very lowest 
rate, with provision?, under certain limita-

Trailing Skirts Unlaw fa). 

If the law be observed, women with 
trailing skirts will soon be novelties 
in Vienna, as the local council has di- 
rected all women frequenting the pub- 
lic parks and gardens to hold up their 
skirts if they would otherwise trail 
them on the ground. The reason for 
this measure Is rather peurile. The 
notice states that these inclosures are 
devoted to the recreation of persons 
desirous of escaping fiom the dusty 
town, and therefore the authorities 
object to the dust being swept into 
heaps by the trailing s 1 ' '.g.

Alnbfimn Inorsaies Tier Territory. 

Alabama has quietly increased her 
territory by 200,000 acres of valuable 
timber land. The strip is on the 
state's southern boundary, and by 
right belonged to Alabama for nearly 
seventy years. In 1826 a survey was 
made to fix the boundary, but ten 
years later it was discovered that the 
eastern boundary line was a mile too 
short on the Chattahoochie river. For 
some unknown reason no attention 
was paid to this second survey, and 
the whole thing was forgotten. Re- 
cently some allusion to it was found 
in old records, the question was looked 
up, and after the government land of- 
fice had passed upon it the strip be- 
came a recognized part, of the state of

The Great Woman's Remedy for Woman's Ills. 

No other medicine in the world has received such widespread 
and unqualified endorsement. 

No other medicine has such a record of cures of female troubles 
or such hosts of grateful friends. 

Do not be persuaded that any other medicine is just as good. 
Any dealer who asks you to buy something else when you go into 
his store purposely to buy Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound, 
has no interest in your case. He is merely trying to sell you some- 
thing on which he can make a larger profit. He does not care 
whether you get well or not, so long as he can make a little more 
money out of your sickness. If he wished you well he would 
without hesitation hand you the medicine you ask for, and which he 
knows is the best woman's medicine in the world. 

Follow the record of this medicine, and remember that these

The above singular combination is the trade-mark adopted by the Paria Medicine 
Company of St. Louis and ia used in their advertisements of Grove's Tasteless Chill Tonic. 
To the many people who may be interested to know the origin of this odd trade-mark, the 
following information is given : 

In the spring of 1893, the little two year old son of Mr. E. W. Grove was taken quite iick 
with malaria. Mr. Grove, knowing the virtue of his own medicine, commenced giving him 
Grove's Taateless Chill Tonic. He had taken this prescription only a few days until quite 
a favorable change was noted, in fact, he grew so rosy, healthy and plump, that Mrs. Grove 
in describing his condition to her husband, remarked " Grove's Tonic makes our baby as fE.t 
as a pig"> This led Mr. Grove to thinking that the expression "as fat as pigs" used in con- 
nection with babies, was a very common one, and suggested to him the idea of combining a 
child's face with a pig's body, with wording as above, " Grove's Tonic makes children as fat 
as piga". It is an attractive trade-mark, and the remedy it represents — Grove's Tonic— ia 
regarded by the public as being the very best prescription for Malaria, Chills and Fever. 
The record of the Paris Medicine Company shows that Nine Thousand gross— Ninety car- 
loads—of Grove's Tonic have been sold this year from Jan. 1st, 1900, and aa "orders are truly 
a good index of a medicine's worth " no one can doubt the virtue of Grove's Tonic. Druggists 
all sell Grove's Tonic on a no cure, no pay basis, for fifty cents a bottle.

Collision on the L. & N. Near 
Park wood Station. 


Wants the Birthday of Lee Hade

Fireman Killed and Other Trainmen 
Injured— Wfis Caused by -Dis- 
regard lor Orders. 

Two freight trains on the Louisville 
and Nashville road collided one mile 
south of Parkwood and about seven or 
eight miles south of Birmingham at 
8:40 o'clock Saturday morning. One 
man was killed and several others 
more or less seriously injured. 

Fireman Kobert Howard, colored, 
was internally injured and died short- 
ly after being brought to Birming- 

Engineer G. Y. Horton was slightly 

Engineer Chase slightly hurt. 

Flagman McDuffy, nose broken. 

Fireman J. Wilson, slightly injured. 

Brakemau Nix, colored, slightly 
hurt . 

The collision occurred on a steep 
grade about a mile south of Parkwood, 
and is said to have been caused by the 
fuilure of the conductor on the south- 
bound train to observe orders to meet 
the second section of No. 28, north- 
bound, at Parkwood. Both trains 
wtre making slow time when they 
met and to this cause is due the small 
loss of life and the light damage to 
the trains. Both engines were wrecked, 
but only a few cars were torn up. 

As soon as information of the collis- 
ion was received in the office of the 
superintendent in Birmingham a 
wrecking train and Superintendent 
Welch and Assistant Superintendent 
Galloway together with the surgeon 
of the road, went to the scene. The 
injured men were at once brought to 
Birmingham and taken to St. Vincent's 

Alf Dorsey Shoots at Jasv> r Bryant. 

At 8 :30 Saturday night pedestrians 
on Twentieth street, between First 
and Second avonues, Birmingham, 
were startled by five pistol shots fired 
in rapid succession, then a flying 
figure darted across the street and 
disappeared up First alley, hotly pur- 
sued by another figure. 

The first figure was Alf Dorsey, 
colored, who works at the Pennsly- 
vania hat store, and the second one 
was that of Policeman John Tonilin. 

The trouble began in Jackson's 
tailor shop over an argument as to 
how the word "one" was spelt. 
Dorsey, whose ideas of orthography 
were somewhat muddled by drink, 
insisted that one was spelt w-o-n. 
Jisper Bryant, who was standing 
around quietly chewing tobacco, said 
that one was spelt o-n-e. Dorsey 
then drew a dollar from his pocket 
and offered to bet Bryant that his 
way of spelling one was tho one and 
the only one. Bryant took the bet, 
but while he was fumbling around in 
his pockets hunting for a dollar 
Dorsey dropped his dollar on the 
floor. "Pick that up," he said to 
Bryant. ''I didn't put it down and I 
ain't gwine ter pick it up," answered 
Bryant. Dorsey thereupon drew a 
revolver and began to shoot. He fired 
five shots into different parts of the 
room. Seven people were in the room 
but none were hurt. One of the 
bullets grized Bryant's arm, or as 
Bryant expressed it, "it burnt him." 
Having emptied his revolver Dorsey 
dushed downstairs and out into the 
street. People seeing a man running 
with a revolver in his hand gave him 
the right of way. Officer John Tom- 
lin, who had been attracted to the 
spot by the shooting, started in pur- 
suit, but Dorsey wub the best "sprint- 
er'' und disappeared in the darkness 
of First alley.

Chinese Promise to Submit Peace- 
ably to Demands of 
the Allies. 

Following at an interval of one day 
close upon his announcement that the 
Chinese emperor has decreed the ac- 
ceptance of the Pekin agreement, 
Minister Conger cabled the state de- 
partment under date of Pekin, January 
1, that the next step had been taken, 
and that the ministers had been noti- 
fied formally not only that the Chinese 
government had accepted, but felt able 
to guarantee a performance of the con- 
ditions imposed. 

It was apprehended that there would 
be much difficulty in settling the im- 
portant subject of indemnities, and 
the rearrangement of the commercial 
treaties between China and the pow- 
ers, which is provided for only in gen- 
eral terms in the agreement, was ex- 
pected to present equal difficulties in 
the arrangement of the details. It is 
absolutely essential to harmonious re- 
lations in the future that there shall 
be no discrimination in the making of 
these treaties. 

The Chinese government's guarantee 
of its ability to perform the acts called 
for by the agreement is now expected 
to be followed by the prompt arrest 
and punishment of the boxer leaders 
and sympathizers who were named in 
the decree of September 25th, as fol-

ry Princes Tsai Lien and Tsai Ying,

Discussion of the Measure 
Brings Out Criticism. 


The Philippines Question Brought 
Up and Threshed Over at 
Great Length. 

For five hours Friday the senate 
discussed the army reorganization bill. 
The debate took a wide range at times, 
but was confined principally to the 
question of the necessity for the in- 
crease in the regular army provided 
for in the pending measure. 

The Philippine question was thresh- 
ed over at great length, but few really 
new points we:re advanced. Speeches 
were made by Mr. Carter, of Mon- 
tana; Mr. Teller, of Colorado; Mr. 
Hoar, of Massachusetts; Mr. Stewart, 
of Nevada, and Mr. Caffery, of Louisi- 
ana. One of the sharpest colloquies 
of the session was between Mr. Carter 
and Mr. Wellington, of Maryland. 

Mr, Hoar advanced a proposition to 
create a commisision, to be composed 
of all shades of political opinion, to in- 
vestigate the entire Philippine ques- 
tion and report i ts findings to congress 
iu order that a basis might be formed 
for intelligent action. Some slight 
progress was made toward the comple- 
tion of the pending measure. 

The resolution offered Thursday by 
Mr. Pettigrew calling for information 
with reference to the Philippines was 
laid before the senate, and Mr. Lodge 
moved that it be referred to the com- 
mittee on Philippines, and it was 
finally so referred. Mr. Pettigrew 
said the president maintained there 
was no war in tho Philippines. The 
military committed declared that war 
existed there, and that at least 60,000 
men would be required to suppress 
the rebelion. He, therefore, demand- 
ed the facts. 

Another of Mr. Pettigr-ew's resolu- 
tions calling upon, the president for 
information as to the necessity for an 
increase in the strength of the army 
was referred to the committee on mil- 
itary affairs. On demand of Mr. Pet- 
tigrew the commit tee report on the 
army bill was read. Mr. Carter asked 
unanimous consent to pass upon the 
unobjected amendments. Mr. Petti- 
grew objected. 

Mr. Wellington, of Maryland, de- 
manded to know the intention of the 
administration with reference to the 
Philippine islands. If it was to force 
an annexation of the Philippines, then 
a large army would be necessary. Two 
campaigns had been fought out and 
the situation was wor 66 than ever. Mr. 
Wellington was oppo Bed to an increase 
of the army, if the government pur- 
poses to try to depri ve the Filipinos 
of self-government. 

Mr. Carter replied that "the presi- 
dent has no authority to decide what 
shall be done with tht) Philipines. " 

"The moment the treaty of peace 
was ratified," said he, "that moment 
it became the supreme law of the land. 
If the president had re fused to main- 
tain sovereignty of tho United States 
there, he would have laid himself lia- 
ble to impeachment." 

"Has he not already given up sover- 
eignty over a portion of Alaska?" in 
quired Mr. Wellington,. 

Mr. Carter replied that what the 
president had done as to the Alaskan 
boundary had been accomplished 
through a modus vive ndi, a purely 
temporary arrangement. "It is nev- 
ertheless a fact," declared Mr. Wel- 
lington, "that territory over which we 
had undisputed sovereignty has been 
abandoned. The Britisli flag has been 
raised over it, and it is controlled by 
British constabulary. That is the 

Mr. Hoar suggested a goneral amend- 
ment to the bill looking; to the con- 
ciliation of the Filipinos and express- 
ing the opinion that in time of peace 
we should have one sol Tier to each 
1,000 of our population. He did not, 
therefore, he said, oppose 1 the bill on 
the score of increase, bu t he did op- 
pose it because of the avowed policy of 
military control of the Philippines. 
"It is idle," he said, "to tell us that 
these people are not fit 1'or self-gov- 
ernment. The way to prepare them 
for liberty is to set them firee."

federacy on January 4, letters were 
ordered to be written Representatives 
Foster and Brandon and Senator Geo. 
D. Johnston, requesting them to lend 
their aid to the effort to secure an ap. 
propriation from the state to aid in 
the erection of monuments to the he- 
roio dead on those battlefields which 
have been converted into national 
parks by the government, and request- 
ing them to vote to make the birthday 
of General Robert E. Lee a legal holi- 
iday in Alabama. The name of the 
chapter was alse changed from the 
Tuscaloosa Chapter to the "B. E 
llodes Chapter." 

The Daughters expect to present on 
next Memorial Day crosses of honor 
to about two hundred veterans of the 
lost cause, 


So Far as Hundane Affairs 
Are Concerned. 


In His Brief Filed Before United 
States Supreme Court In 
"Insular" Cases. 

Coal Minors Will Probably Get Ad- 
vance in Wages. 

It is more than likely that there 
will be an advance of two and a half 
cents a ton in the price paid for min- 
ing coal in the Birmingham district, 
beginning January 1. The price for 
December was 62^ cents, but the ad- 
vance in the price of iron in Decem- 
ber brought the average up to $11, 
which, it is believed, will entitle the 
miners to the maximum limit, 55 
cents per ton. The miners' commit- 
tee inspect the iron sales books of the 
Tennessee Coal, Iron and Railroad 
Company on the first of each month, 
and if they find that the average sell- 
ing price of iron is $11 for all grades 
they will then receive the maximum 
for digging coal. 

Talladega Furnace. 

Eugene Zimmerman, owner of the 
Talladega pig iron furnace and the 
Birmingham and Atlantic Bailroad, 
was in the city Saturday. He said 
that he saw no reason why business 
should not be good throughout this 
year. The present conditions are 
favorable for heavy business and the 
iron market is firm and the demand 
good. He stated that the furnace at 
Talladega, now idle, would be put in 
blast by the first of February, This 
furnace was banked last fall for the 
purpose of repairing and overhauling 
it. It is now in better condition than 
ever before and when it starts up will 
make about 100 tons of iron a day. 

Iron Roofing Company. 

The plant of the Alabama Metal 
Booting Company, in Birmingham, is 
nearing completion and will be ready 
to go in operation within two or three 
weeks. When completed it will melt 
about twenty tons ofironaday, which 
it will convert into corrugated roofing, 
ceiling, siding and similar material. 
It is owned and operated by O. E. 
Smith, Haskins Williams and Mr. 
West, the latter taking the manage**^ 
ment of the works. 

It is the intention of the owners of 
the plant to add machinery for making 
iron and steel wheelbarrows, coal 
scuttles, shovels and similar articles 
at an early date. 

Bible Conference. 

A Bible conference will begin at the 
Parker Memorial Baptist Church in 
Anniston, Jan. 15tb, and continue 
until the 17th inst. 

Hundreds of delegates from all over 
Calhoun and adjoining counties will 
be in attendance. 

Two of the most notod ministers in 
the south will also be there. They are 
Dr. B. J. Willingham, chairman of 
the Baptist Foreign Mission Board, 
and Dr. W. H. Kerfoot, chairman of 
the Baptist Home Mission Board. 

J3i<r Coal Contract. 

A contract has been practically 
closed by which B. H. Wood & Sons 
of New Orleans, will take 150,000 
tons of coal from the Walker county 
mines, delivery to bo made between 
February 1st, 1901, and February 1st, 
1902. The parties to the contract are 
B. H. Wood <fe Sons, of New Orleans, 
and the Sloss- Sheffield Steel and Iron 
Company, the Virginia and Alabama 
Coal Company, the Deer Creek Ooul 
Company, Southern Coal and Coke 
Couipuny and the Southern Railway. 

A Washington special says: The 
first briefs to be filed in the cases in- 
volving the relations of the United 
States to their insular possessions 
which are to be argued in the Uneitd 
States supreme court were submitted 
Wednesday, There are eight of the 
cases and briefs were filed in two of 
them, viz: The cases of Carlos Arm- 
strong and of Samuel B. Downes. In 
both cases the briefs represent the 
parties opposing the contentions of 
the government. 

The Armstrong case comes to the 
supreme court from the court of claims. 
Armstrong is a British subject doing 
business in Ponce, Porto Bico, and he 
sues to recover tariff duties collected 
on goods imported into Porto Bico 
from New York, Philadelphia and 
Baltimore. The court of claims de- 
cided against him and he appeals from 
that decision. The brief in this case 
was filed by Mr. John C. Chaney on 
behalf of Mr. Armstrong. 

The plea is made in the brief that 
the collection was, in the circum- 
stances, a violation of the constitution 
of the United States, as by tho terms 
of the Paris treaty the island of Porto 
Bico became a portion of the United 
States. The brief lays down the fol- 
lowing propositions as the basis of the 
appellant's contentions: 

'"Tho constitution of the United 
States reaches over every portion of 
the national domain, whether in the 
form of state, territories or districts, 
because this constitution provides for 
territories as well as states. The ces- 
sion made by Spain in the treaty of 
Paris produced an absolute change of 
title and sovereignty in Porto Bico. 

"The president of the United States 
is an executive officer only. He has 
no right to exercise legislative func- 
tions. The imposition, by executive 
orders, of customs duties on commerce 
between the island of Porto Bico and 
other parts of the United States after 
the treaty of peace and the exchange 
of ratifications is unauthorized and 
void, and the collection of such duties 
ia without warrant of law. 

"A government without limitations 
was never intended by the founders of 
the nation. They sought to establish, 
and did establish, a constitutional re- 
public which furnishes a written guar- 
antee of protection to all of its inhab- 
itants. The idea that, in one portion 
of the country, the executive and leg- 
islative authority is subject to restric- 
tions and limitations and that in other 
portions it is without any restriction." 

A large portion of the brief is de- 
voted to the refutation of the doctrine 
laid down by the attorney general in 
the Gootz case, recently argued by 
him in the supreme court to the effect 
that the government of the United 
States has an unlimited hand in the 
control of territory outside of the 

Replying to this declaration, Mr. 
Chaney says, in part: 

Mr. McKinley is the president of 
the United State, the president of its 
territories and of its people. He is 
not the president of any other terri- 
tory or people and he is the despot of 
no people and no territory. He was 
never elected or commissioned the 
despot of anybody or anything. 

''The congress is the congress of 
the United States — the congress of 
the territory and the people of the 
United States. It is not the congress 
of any other territory or people. It is 
omnipotent nowhere on the face of 
the earth. It is created by tho people 
of the United States under a constitu- 
tion specifically pointing out its power 
and duties. It exists by virtue of that 
constitution and also the presidential 
office. It is omnipotent nowhere. The 
only omnipotent thing this side of 
heaven is the constitution formulated 
by the fathers out of times which prov- 
ed the necessity of providing against 
despotism in the presidential office. 
One would think to hear the argu- 
ments advanced by the government 
that there are no restrictions or limita- 
tions of any sort upon congress or the 
president so far as the territories are 

"They may give to Alaska an abso- 
lute monarchy; they may give to the 
Hawaiian islands a republic; they 
may giv3 to Porto Bico any such gov- 
ernment as Weyler would provide; 
that they may give to the Philippines 
a form of government after the plan 
of Germany; that they may establish 
a republic iu one part and a monarchy 
in another; that they may deny to the 
inhabitants of theso islands all the 
recognized rights and provisions 
which characterize the civilized na- 
tions. In short, they may restore all 
the relics of barbarism and there is no 
way on earth to stop or control them." 

South Carolina Gets Enormous Profits 
From Her Dispensary. 

The business of the South Carolina 
state dispensary for the fiscal year 
1900 amount to $2,421,840.22. This 
is for the first eleven month* ot the 

December, the biggest trade month 
of the year, is not included. Yet the 
sales last year, eleven months, ex- 
ceeded 1809 twelve mouths by $750,- 
000. T .e state's part of the profits 
for 1900 is $170,012. 18; the towns and 
counties $298,100.28, making a grand 
total of profits of $474,178.40. The 
dispensary is now tho largest whisky 
bottling concern in the world. 

Erstwhile Temperance Town In Ala- 
j^bama Now Overrun With Saloons. 

A unique occurrence took place in 
the city of Eusley, Ala., the site of 
the steel industry in the B irmingham

Montevallo, Ala., Jan. 10, 11)01. 


The meeting on Monday night to 
nominate a mayor and four coun- 
cilmen was largely attended, and 
the deliberations harmonious 

The candidate for mayor is a capa- 
ble man in every way, and for the 
past few days was the only man 
men tioned for the place. He will 
preside with dignity over all meet- 
ings of the council, and we believe 
in dealing with offendors of the law 
he will temper justice with mercy, ' 
but at the same time give offen- 
dors to understand that they must 
not impose upon the peace of the 

The council is made up of bus- 
iness men — men who have lived in 
Montevallo for a long lime, and 
who are iu touch with the people. 
Being business men there is no 
doubt but that the affairs of the 
town will be conducted in a bus- 
iness-like manner, and The Sen- 
tinel believes they will receive the 
hearty support of all who wish to 
see Montevallo and her people pros, 
per. The Sentinel also predicts a 
new era of progress for our little 
town,. and with such men as have 
ibeen chosen to administer her af- 
fairs success and prosperity is sure 
to follow. Matters of grave im. 
portance will confront the council 
and especially so at the inaugura- 
of the incorporation, and we be- 
lieve these problems will be met 
fairly and squarely, and to the best 
iuterest of all, by the men who 
were chosen at Monday night's 
meeting. May success attend their 
efforts say we,

The Alabama mob got it do*vn 
pretty fine when it lynched a negro 
for being merely charged with steal • 
ing a bunch of keys; but a Georgia 
mob, near Fairburn, in Campbell 
county, has beat the record. In 
this case, an industrious and well- 
to-do negro named Starling Thomas 
was shot to death in his own house, 
because he had a three years' lease 
on a good farm which some white 
men coveted. He had received 
written notice to leave the county 
on pain of death. Not obeying, hu

about Chinese Boxers! They can't

Wichita, Kan., Jan. 5.— Mrs. 
Mary E. Lease has changed her 
mind about suing her husband, 
Charles Lease, for divorce. The 
suit which was prepared two 
months ago was never Hied and 
never will be, unless the Leases 
quarrel again. Mrs. Lease has in- 
structed her attorney to proceed 
no further with ihe case. Recon- 
ciliation between Mr. and Mrs. 
Lease was brought about by their 
children, all of, whom are now of 
age and living in New York with 
their mother. Mrs. Lease will 
shortly return to Wichita, quit pol- 
itics aud settle down to domestic 
lile. Her husband said today: "My 
wife will not push the divorce case 
she started. I.' never knew she was 
going to file it, until her attorney 
gave it to the newspapers. She 
will return to Wichita and live with 
me. We nevisr did have any quar- 
rels, although I disagreed with her 
ideas of politics and reform. She 
will quit all tthat. Our children all 
have steadj employment in New 
York and will remain there "

From the Kinacial Chronicle New Yurt 
City, Dec. I.. 11)00. 

In a decisiion rendered this week 
the Interstate Commerce Commis- 
sion has thrown off all disguise and 
has revealed the animus which in 
controlling its course aud action. 

The f runners of the Interstate 
law intended that the Commission 
should act iu an impartial manner, 
deciding cases before it strictly in 
accordance with their merits. The 
Board nas from the first acted as if 
it were the champion of the ship 
pers, aud as if its chief function 
consisted in harassing and embar- 
rassing the railroads aud ruling 
against t'.'iem when occasion offered. 

But while the Comntission could 
not concpal the bias it fell, its ut 
terances at least have hitherto been 
couched injudicial and unobjection- 
able language, thus preserving a 
semblance of impartiality. This 
week, however, it has finally 
thrown precaution to the winds. 

The Eiouthorn Railway Company 
had asli od for a rehearing in a ease 

involving relative rates to Lynch- 
burg, Danville, etc., which had 
been decided against it in the 
spring. In its petition the com- 
pany claimed that to obey the de 
cision of the Commission would in- 
volve a loss to it $433,000 per an- 
il um, and that as no dividend had 
been paid on the "ompany's common 
stock of $120,000,000 during 1899, 
to insist upon cutting off that a- 
inount of revenue per year would 
be tantamount to depriving the 
owners of the stock of their pro- 
perty without due process of law. 

The Commission makes an at 
tempt to dispute the figures of loss 
given, and then goes on to say that 
the stock was issued as part of a 
reorganization scheme under which 
the company came into existence, 
that it does not, appear that any- 
thing was ever paid upon such stock, 
and finally (apparently to clinch a 
weak argument) "that it does not 
rest in the whim of a Reorganiza- 
tion Committee in Wall Street to 
impose a tax upon the whole coun- 

The allusion here to the "whim 
of a Reorganization Committee" in 
• 'Wall Street" is not only irrelevant 
and in exceedingly bad taste, vio- 
lating every rule of official property, 
but in the inference which it seeks 
to convey is a gross misrepresenta 
tion of the facts of the case. There 
was no occasion for lugging in the 
Reorganization Committee at all, 
and we qau conceive of no reason 
for so doing, except a desire or the 
part of seme of the members to 
pose before the country as foes of 
the railroad and financial interests. 

'J" lie Reorganization Committee 
was noton trial, and if the Com- 
mission deemed the capitalization 
of the Southern Railway excessive 
and wanted to maintain its position 
with reference to the rate question, 
a decorous statement to that effect 
would have answered every purpose 
and have shown that the Board 
still had some regard for its official 
position. Instead, the Commission 
seeks to cast aspersions upon a 
body of men who in reorganizing 
the old Richmond & West Point 
Terminal Company and its consti- 
tuent properties rendered as im- 
portant a public service as was 
ever rendered under similar circum- 
stances by a like body anywhere iu 
the country. As a matter of fact 
the Reorganization Committee, in- 
stead of being pilloried, should be 
held up to public approval and 
praise. They accomplished a task 
which seemed wellnigh hopeless — a 
task which several previous com- 
mittees formed for the same pur* 
pose had been obliged to abandon 
beceauso of its onerous character. 

The imputation that this commit, 
tee, which carried to success an uu. 
dertaking which everyone else had 
abandoned, sought by the reorgan- 
ization "to impose a tax upon the 
whole Southern country" is abso- 
lutely without any foundation m 
truth, and has nothing whatever 
to sustain it. When these people 
took hold the properties constitu- 
ting the present Southern Kailway 
system were a physical as well as a 
financial wreck. The service was 
bad. and the costly way in which it 
was rendered forbade the possibility 
of cheapening the charge to the 
public. The reorganizes provided 
the means for rehabilitating the 
system, and poured millions upon 
millions into it for its improvement 
and development. Now at last the 
territory served by the lines has a 
railroad service worthy of the name 
So far from having imposed a tax 
upon any portion of the Southern 
country, we venture the assertion 
that the South to-day, a- the result 
of these efforts and expendit ores, is 
being served better and cheaper 
than at any previous period in its

The statement that there is no 
evidence that anything was ever 
p id on the common stock of the 
Southern Railway is of the same 
baseless character. The stock re- 
ferred to was issued in exchange 
for the stocks of the old companies. 
Everybody in the financial aud rail- 
road world knows that the terms 
were not liberal. Indeed, the re 
organization was a peculiarly dras- 
tic one. Leaving out of account 
what may have been originally paid 
on the old shares, the reorganiza- 
tion managers levied heavy assess- 
ment on these old stocks, and also 
on some classes of bonds, aud the 
security-holders bad to pay these 
assessments iu order to get, any re- 
presentation in the reorganized 
company. The Richmond Terminal 
shareholders had to pay 810.00 per 
share, and the East Tennessee com • 
mon stockholders had to pay $7.20 
per share, and besides had their 
holding reduced 40 per cent, ^o 
hard were these terms considered 
that many of the security owners 
sacrificed their holdings rather 
than accept them, and the reorgan- 
ization syndicate had to step into 
the gap. If the Interstate Com- 
merce CommiHsion does not know 
all this it is inexcusably igmorunt 
on a most important subject, com - i 
ing directly within its province, 1 
And what benefits have the se- 
curity holders who came in under 
the reorganization scheme received 
thus far? They have had no divid- 
ends upon their holdings of com- 
mon stock, and to-day, t-.V years 
after the reorganization, they li: d 
these shares quoted in the mark, t 
at the munificent figure of 17 

When, therefore, the .manage s 
oftbeemnpanv sought toprotnt 
these shareholders against the ac- 
tion of the Interest, Commerce Com- 
mission in threatening a large re- 
duction of the company's revenues, 
they were evidently doing only 
duiy. The Commission in denying 
the request for a rehearing might 
at least have refrained from inject, 
ing abuse into the refusal.

Boys, better be on your good behav- 
ior. Re's in town, and, according to 
his stories, he has already hadasnrti 
cicnt number of hairbreadth escapes to 
make Old Sleuth turn over in his grave, 
and as to lives — why, tli« proverbial old 
cat which always comes bad;, or Agui- 
naldo who lias been reported killed 
forty times and still lives, are back 
numbers when compared with this 
modern young Vidocq He has been 
| shot, stabbed, bung, buried alive, hall- 
| drowned, drawn and quartered, and 
worst of all — kidnapped, and yet he 
live ■( to tell it. Armed with an In- 
diana "permit," he traverses the dark 
alleys and streets with a horse-pistol in 
one hand and a halt-dozen disguises in 
the other looking for whom he may 
"discover." His f atifes are set in 
that ha-villain-I-have-tliee-iook which 
causes the cold chills to play a game of 
hide-and-se k up and down one's spi- 
nal column. 

One evening not a great while ago 
he was regaling a few friends with a 
of his bair-iaisiug episodes, and 
tecital was pi excellent as gauged 
\ I lie yellow-literature standard. He 
h; d been shadowing a parly who weic 
suspected o! — almost any old thing. Of 
course he was eusjjtlised, this particular 
time as a negro. Unlike most good de- 
tives we read of his zeal got the better 
ol his caution, and those wlioni he was 
following lea him into a trap and cap- 
tured him. Binding; him hand and 
foot they cast him into McKibbon's mill 
dam. Just, as iie was sinking for the 
lasr time an old negro who had been 
poaching on the li«h preserves i owed 
up and catching the sinking man by 
the ha i dragged him into I tie boat in 
true melo-rtramatic style (red lighi, 
please). He was carried ashore and 
atier hours of unconsciousness he was 
revived, on'y to rind that his birds had 
escaped him. Out there with only the 
stais for witnesses he registered a vow 
'.hat he would run the villains down 
even though iie had to follow them to — 
Birmingham. (More red light, slow 

On another occasion he was chained 
o ihe railroad track, and saved only 
by his nerve; he signaled the engineer 
by scratching a match, held in his 
teeth, upon a cross-tie. (He did not 
say through what impossible means he 
got the match.) 

Disguised as a hobo he followed a 
gang to Mobile. He was discoveied 
and thrown from Ike tram, which, by 
ihe way, was running about forty miles 
a minute. He dropped into a conven- 
ient pond and was saved. 

Yea, verily, be worketh wonders, and 
the last beard of him be was working 
upon a case wherein an umbrella plays 
a prominent part — it. has been cruelly 
and premedilatedly kidnapped!

The Meeting Which Nominates Five 
Representative Men. 

It is with pleasure The Sentinel an- 
lounces that Mr. Georg Kroger, the 
great pianist, who, it will be remem- 
bered gave a recital here last vear, will 
give another of his delightful enter- 
tainments in the College Chapel, on 
Friday night, Jan. 18th. 

Have You Paid Yours? 

We are constrained to believe there 
are a good mai.y who take a paper for 
years and years, and who seem to for- 
get(?) they should pay for it some time. 
Possibly they think they are conferring 
a favor upon the newspaper man in 
having their name upon his list. 

We have sent out a lame number of 
statements, some of which have been 
acknowledged and paid, but a far great- 
er number have paid no attention to the 
statement rendered whatever. We do 
not care to harp upon the matter, but 
will be compelled to resort to othei 
methods for collecting old subscription 
accounts. The house from which we 
buy paper expects us to pay our bills, 
and would enforce payment if we did 
not respond when bills are due. 

Those who have paid up have done 
so on first call, and we are grateful for 
their promptness. To those who have 
not. paid we ask if you treat your mer 
chani with the supreme indifference 
you treat your newspaper man when a 
bill is rendered ? 

VVe doubt it. 

As per call the citizens met in the 
store room of the Montevallo Furniture 
Co. on Monday night, and nominated a 
mayor and four councdmen to be voted 
for on next Monday. 

On motion 0. L. Meronev was elected 
chaiimitu and H. E. Whitaker, secre- 

The chairman stated the object of the 
meeting, and counseled carefulness and 
conservatism in the deliberations of the 
meeting, and especially so in choosing 
the men who would have control of the 
town's alf'airs tor the next two vears. 

A motion by J. A. Moore prevailed 
that t life chairman appoint'a committee 
of five to select names for major and 
councilmen and present to the meeting 
for acceptance or rejection. The chair 
appointed J, A. Moore, Dr. Givhan, O. 
W. Morgan, Dr. Wilkinson and P. J. 
Kroell, who retire U, arid in a few min- 
utes returned and reported 

For Mayor, Kdward S. Lyman. 

For Councilmen, H. 0. Reynolds, 
George Kroell, A. . Cross laid C.L . 
Meronev, and on nntion the report was 
adopted by a rising vote, the motion 
being made bv Mr. Little. 

Mr. Meroney and Mr. Cross thanked 
the meeting for the honor conferred. 
Mr. Kroell said he was no talker, and 
Captain Reynolds being absent Oeorge 
Morgan was appointed a committee of 
one to find him and escort him to the 
room. When he came in with Mr. Mor 
gan he was given a round of applause 
In a few words he acknowledged the 
unsought honor, and said that his past' 
fidelity to his home town was the best 
evidence he could give as to what his 
action would be in the future. He was 
for peace, harmony, good fellowship 
arid the upbuilding of Montevallo ; he 
believed our town had a blight future. 
With words of praise and commenda- 
tion he referred to the great school we 
have here, anil of the possibility of se- 
curing the Birmingham and Brunswick 
railroad; he wanted to see good streets, 
good sidewalks, and in closing he said 
"I want to see Montevallo and her peo- 
ple prosper in every way. ami will lend 
all the aid possible in bringing this 
about." As he finished he was again 
heartily applauded. 

J. A. Moore, Dr. Givhan and S. A. 
Latham were appointed a committee to 
notify Mr. Lyman of his nomination. 

E, Kuhner, who was one of the elec- 
tion managers, having removed from 
the city, and Mr. Kioell being a candi- 
date, the board of mauagers will be 
James Ozley, L. N. Bowdon and S. A. 

On motion the meeting adjourned. 

The notification committee waited 
upon Mr. Lyman, in the ollice of the 
Latham Hotel, Tuesday evening, and 
J. n.. Moore, in a few words, made 
known the harmonious and unanimous 
action of the citizens' meeting, and of 
his nomination for mayor. 

In reply Mr. Lyman said he was not 
prepared to make a speech, but he 
congratulated the citizens upon their 
harmonious meeting; that the pieva- 
lence of such feeling was needful in 
building up Montevallo. In referring 
to bis own nomination, he accepted the 
trust imposed in him by the people and 
with the aid of the excellent council 
nominated would do all that he could 
lor his native town and its citizens. 
Mr. I.j'man was much affected by the 
action,' of- bis fellow citizens. 

On the 15th day of January, 1901, 
there will be offered for sale, to the 
highest bid.ler for cash, the plantation 
known as Wells-Lynch plantation, com- 
prising 1,0:10 acres of choice land about 
four miles from Montevallo, near Dog- 
wood station. The plantation, which 
belongs to the French Nabors' estate, 
is well improved and would make a fine 
stock ranch, or could be divided into 
four good farms with an abundance of 
never failing supply of water upon 
each. There are 160 acres of good pine, 
timber that has never been touched 
with an ax, besides a great deal of fine 
oak and hickory timber. 

The spring upon this plantation is, 
no doubt one of the largest and best in 
Alabama. It is the fountain head of 
the pretty little stream, Shoals' creek, 
which flows thrcn*h" Montevallo. The 
water is of the purest, and as clear as 
cvstal. The location of t'lis spring has 
a much higher altitude than Montevallo 
and si" civil -ngineer who at one time 
investigated t lie niatter. said that this 
town had in this spring. L utilized, the 
finest waterworks advantage 1 of any 
any place he knew of in the South. If 
the Girls' industrial School had the 
use of this w..ter direct from the spring 
there would never be a question as to 
pure wafer a> d plenty of it. 

As to the p'antatidn — it is among the 
most desirable properties in this section 
of Alabama, and ought to bring a good 
figure. , The sale takes place on next

Electrical CookJn~ In Utlca. 

A group of apartment houses in Uti- 
ca, N. Y., is provided throughout with 
electrical cooking utensils, consisting 
of three round platters, or "stoves," 
an oven and a broiler. When not 
needed they can be stowed aiway, leav-

which the room is put. The air is not 
vitiated and the apartment Is kept 
much cooler. The same apartments 
are provided with electric curling

Cronje and tho Fish. 
A London servant girl was sent on 
the day of Cronje's surrender to tho 
local fish monger's for fresh herrings. 
The town rang with the news, but 
Mary Jane minded her business, and 
that only. "They've got Cronje," re- 
marked the fish monger, as he wrapped 
up her "five for threepence." Home 
sped the maiden, and laid her purchase 
before her mistress. "Here they are, 
ma'am," she exclaimed; "but I don't 
know how they'll do. The fish monger 
said they'd got cronje!" 


Is the most important period in a -wo- 
man's existence. Owing; to modern 
methods of living, not one woman in 
a thousand approaches this perfectly 
natural change without experiencing 
a train of very annoying and some- 
times painful sj'mptoms. 

Those dreadful hot flashes, sending 
the blood surging to the heart until it 
seems ready to burst, and the faint 
feeling that follows, sometimes with 
chills, as if the heart were going to 
stop for good, are symptoms of a dan- 
gerous, nervous trouble. Those hot 
flashes are just so many calls from 
nature for help. The nerves are cry-

ing out for assistance. The cry should 
bo heeded in time. Lvdia K. l'ink- 
ham's Vegetable Compound was pre- 
pared to meet the needs of woman's 
system at this trying period of her life. 

It builds up the weakened nervous 
system, and enables a woman to pass 
that grand change triumphantly. 

" 1 was a very sick woman, caused

From the flowery land of Japan there 
is a wrinkle to be learned about the 
keeping of their national flower. The 
chrysanthemum is with us in profu- 
sion now, and will be during the next 
three months. So let us take the ad- 
vice of our little Jap friends as to tho 
keeping of the cut flowers. Light a 
piece of wood (not a match, because of 
the sulphur in it), and with it burn 
tho stalks. Flowers thus treated will 
last fresh for several weeks — no small 
consideration when the beautiful blos- 
soms are dear.

Somebody has asked whether a duel 
has ever been fc night in the air. One 
of the most curi dus of duels, says Tit- 
Bits, was the balloon duel in France, 
which was foug^ht in 1808. The com- 
batants were Mf j de Grandpre and M. 
le Pique, who h ad quarreled— about a 
lady, of course.i, This lady was one 
Mile. Tirevit, an actress at the Imperi- 
al Opera. On ti he appointed day M. de 
Grandpre entert bd the car of one bal- 
loon, with his sj econd, and M. le Pique, 
with his seconoj,., mounted the other in 
the Garden of f ,he Tuileries, before an 
immense crowd 3 of admiring spectators. 
When all was r'lsady the ropes were cut, 
and the balioon t s shot upward for a dis- 
tance of about half a mile above the 
earth. The lnd being light, they 
were able to ko iep the distance of about 
eighty yards b^etween each other with 
which they st;' irted. On reaching the

Or. Greene's 

forerunner of 
nervous pros- 
tration ; what 
organism is 
strong enough to stand 
up under the strain of 
sleepless nights? It is 
plain that nothing in the 
world can possibly take 
the place of restful sleep, 
yet many try to eke out 
an existence without this 
sustaining power. Their 
nerves are in such a state 
of tension that sleep is 
an impossibility, or at 
best is a series of hideous 
dreams. It is not strange 
that physical and mental 
weakness, amounting 
soon to complete prostration, follows inability to sleep. There is no 
let-up to the strain. Vital forces are drawn upon, confirmed invalid- 
ism results. . 

The recuperative power of natural sleep is wonderful. Complete 
physical and mental exhaustion gives place, after a few hours of 
quiet slumber, to a full renewal of energy. The fatigue of body and 

mind disappears entirely while 
all the muscles are strong and 
the nerves absolutely calm. 

Sleep is the indication given 
by Nature as a guide to human 
plans to restore health. It 
shows that there are inherent 
'the wonderful human 
organism powers of recupera- 
tion which must have oppor- 
tunity to assert themselves. 
Based on this clear demon- 
stration, Dr. Greene's Nervura 
blood and nerve remedy was 
constructed by Ur. Greene to 
help Nature combat the ills 
that attack men and women. 
What no amount of powerful 
drugs could possibly accom- 
plish, can be successfully and 
promptly effected by healthy 
blood and nerves, the kind of 
blood which flows in strength- 
ening flood to ejery portion 
of the body, the condition of 
nerves which permits awak- 
ened Nature to seize its op- 
portunity to restore to perfect 

Court/and Place, Bridgeport, Conn., 
writes : 

"For four years I was troubled 
with nervous debility and hysteria 
in a most aggravated form. It caused 
sleeplessness and mental depression, 
and for months I was confined to my 
bed. My censtitution wasted and I 
totally lost my appetite. I had many 
doctors, but they failed to give me 
any relief. I was advised to try Dr. 
Greene's Nervura blood and nerve 
remedy, lwas in a terrible condition 
when I began its use, and almost 
immediately there was a wonderful 
change came over me. I regained 
my appetite, the dizziness in my head 
departed ; it renewed my interest in 
life aud made me feel, in fact, like 
another person. After taking six 
bottles I thankfully i . ' 
self strong and well. Those six 
bottles did for me what hundreds of 
dollars and numerous physicians 
failed to do."

Hall-lSearlng Watch. 

0no of the most ingenious devices 
at the Paris fair is to be seen in tlie 
Swiss watch factory exhibit and con- 
sists of a ball-bearing pocket time- 
piece. The principle has already been 
applied to the driving wheel of the 
clockmaker's throw and also for the 
winding arbor of clocks. Its applica- 
tion to a watch, however, with satis- 
factory results requires exceedingly 
fine mechanism and minute balls. The 
watch was made by Leon Gruet, a 
foreman of a Parisian watch concern. 
In It the arbors roll on steel balls of 
two sizes. It is spoken of by com- 
petent authorities as one of the most 
interesting horological exhibits.

Shot Down by P. T Suddeth,— Person- 
al Difficulty Between Them. 

Charles Austin, a brother of Chief 
of Police C. W. Austin, of Birming- 
ham, was shot and instantly killed at 
Morris, a small station on the L. & N. 
railroad, a few miles north of Bir- 
mingham, at 2:30 o'clock Saturday 
afternoon, by P. T. Suddeth, a pros- 
perous farmer of that section, in a per- 
sonal difficulty. 

The trouble arose over certain re- 
marks Suddeth is said to have made 
about Austin. Austin approached 
Suddeth and asked him about the 
matter, and it is said used abusive 
language towards him. Suddeth told 
him he would see him later, and left 
town going in the direction of hie 
home, two miles away. Arming him- 
self with a revolver he returned to 
Morris, accompanied by his son, and 
renewed the quarrel. A few words 
passed and Suddeth drew his revolver 
and shot Austin through the heart. 
After being shot Austin grappled with 
Suddeth for the revolver, but young 
Suddeth interfered and took charge ol 
the weapon, the wounded man dying 
soon afterwards. Austin was un- 

Sheriff Burgin was notified of the 
killing and sent deputies to Morris to 
place Suddeth under arrest, but when 
the deputies arrived he had fled the

Negro Woman's Throat Cut and Hon 
B. H. Craig Attacked By 
a Burglar. 

Selma's street fair came to a close 
Friday night but not before two oc- 
" currences out of the ordinary had 
marked its last hours. 

Shortly after dark, a negro woman 
coming along the lower end of Broad 
street, was attacked by a negro man 
who leaped over the back fenoe o) 
Mrs, Evans' boarding house after her. 
Failing to get the woman's pocket- 
book the negro drew his knife and 
slashed her across the throat, inflict- 
ing an ugly but not fatal wound. He 
then made off up an adjoining alley. 

At about 10 o'clock at night Repre- 
sentative B. H. Craig, who lives in a 
somewhat seoluded spot on the bank 
of the river, heard someone trying to 
effect an entrance into his house. He 
crept out upon the would-be burglar 
and captured him, but while carrying 
his prisoner to the lockup down town, 
and when in front of Senator PettuB' 
residence, the negro whirled upon 
Mr. Craig, and felling him to the 
ground, made his escape.

Refused to "Work With Negro Who 

"Was Put on the Drill Press. 

The machinists at the machine shop 
at the city furnaces of the Sloss- 
Sheflield Steel and Iron Company in 
Birmingham went out on a strike Sat- 
urday morning and operations at that 
place were somewhat curtailed during 
the day as a result. The machinists 
quit work because Master Mechanic 
Laidley put a nogroon the drill press. 

As soon as the machinists discovered 
that a negro was running the drill 
press they held a consultation and ap- 
pointed a committee to wait on tho 
Master Mechanic and ascertain if he 
intended to keep the negro there. The 
committee was informed that such 
was his intention, as the company did 
not care to pay a man $2. GO a day to 
operate the machine. The committee 
reported the result of its conference 
to the machinists and all decided to 
quit work. 

Nino machinists are employed at 
the shop and all of these are out. One 
of tho striking men stated that the 
men had no grievances against the 
company or against Mr. Laidley ex- 
cept that the latter put a negro on 
one of the machines and they refused 
to work with him. 

Great and Wise Plan. 
The Hon . Robert R. Poole, the state

aside $10,000, a small percentage of 
his department's earnings, for thepur- 
pose of building an Alabama railroad 
car of Alabama material and stocking 
it with Alabama products for exhibi - 
tion at the great Buffalo fair this year, 
and subsequently taking it about the 
country as a living picture, so to 
speak, of Alabama's unexampled ma- 
terial wealth. 

Accidently Shot "While Hunting. 

Marion Kelly, a lad of 18 years, 
was accidentally shot and instantly 
killed while squirrel hunting near 
Scottsboro Friday. James Rouns- 
ville, a 10-year-old boy, accompanied 
the young man and they had stopped 
to see what the dogs bogged in a pile 
of brush. Young Kelley struck the 
brush with the butt of his gun and 
the weapon was discharged, the load 
of shot striking him in the face and 
killing him instantly. 

Will Organize a Greek Church. 

It is probable that a congregation 
of the Orthodox Greek Church will 
soon be established in Birmingham 
and a regular church organization 
maintained. The Jefferson county 
Greeks number between two and 
three hundred, and a majority oi 
them belong to what is styled the Or- 
thodox Greek Church, the others be- 
ing Catholics. 

Negro Ground to Death. 
William Jackson, a colored em- 
ploye of the Louisville and Nashville 
shops, was ground to death under the 
wheels of a switch engine in the 
Louisville and Nashville yards Friday 
night while walking up the tracks to 
his home in Decatur. Jackson's wife 
identified the mutilated remains. 


Held Post of Comptroller of Treasury 
Under Cleveland Regime. 

William L. Treuholm, who was 
comptroller of the treasury during the 
Cleveland first administration, died at 
his home in Now York Friday of pneu- 
monia. The body was taken to Charles- 
ton, S. C, for interment. 

Air. Treuholm was born in Charles- 
ton February 8, 1836, and graduated 
from the South Carolina college in 
1855. He filled many positions of 
trust and was prominently identified 
with numerous social and oolitical

Board Selects a Site For 
Its Location. 


Secretary Long Makes Decision 
Public—Advantages of New 
Location Set Forth. 

Secretary Long made public Friday 
the report of the naval board of officers 
submitted Thursday concerning the 
establishment of a naval station on 
tho South Atlantic coast, and more 
particularly with reference to the rela- 
tive merits of Port Royal or Charles- 
ton, S. C. , as the site for this station. 

The board recommends in favor of 
Charleston, reinforcing its views with 
an elaborate statement of the advan- 
tages of that plaoe over Port Royal. A 
dissenting view is presented by Rear 
Admiral Sumner, who favors a reten- 
tion of the naval station at Port Royal. 

The board discusses the general 
requisites of a naval station site on the 
South Atlantic coast, including acces- 
sibility from the sea, immunity from 
attack, railroad and steamship facili- 
ties, labor supply and many other spe- 
cial requirements of the navy. After 
an exhaustive review of the advanta- 
ges offered by both localities, the 
board recommends that it is expedi- 
tious to transfer the naval station now 
at Port Boyal, S. C, to a point near 
the city of Charleston, S. C, and finds 
the only available site to be that on 
the west bank of the Cooper river, 
about six miles above the Charleston 
custom house, comprising a part of 
Chicora park, and also, if deemed ad- 
visable, a part of the Marsh land be- 
longing to the state of South Caro- 
lina which lies south of Lawton 

The only other site examined by the 
board in the vicinity of Charleston 
which afforded the necessary water 
front, was on the south bank of the 
Wando river, but as this site has 
neither railroad connection nor water 
facilities, it was not deemed advisable 
for the purposes intended. 

The board states: 

"We are fully aware of the fact that 
in selecting Charleston as a site for a 
naval station in preference to Port 
Royal we are departing from the opin- 
ion of the boards of naval officers who 
have previously considered the ques- 
tion of the establishment of a naval 
station on the south Atlantic coast, 
one of which was presided over by 
A-dmiral Porter. 

"The service has been brought to 
the attention of the board by the Port 
Royal and Beaufort citizens' commit- 
tee as an argument for tho retention 
of the station at Port Royal. There 
is, however, no consistency in this 
connection. When the previous 
boards selected Port Royal as the best 
site for a naval station on tho coast 
the great schemes for the improvement 
of southern harbors had not been car- 
ried forward to any extent, and Port 
Royal possesses the only harbor on 
the coast whioh large ships could en- 
tor under any circumstances. 

"Moreover, the ships of that date 
were smaller and lighter and carried 
much less fixed weight in the shape of 
armor, turrets, etc." 

In conclusion the board states that 
its recommendation of the Charleston 
site is based simply upon its opinion 
that it is the better site of the two. 
The majority report is signed by Rear 
Admiral Frederick Rodgers, president 
of the board; Captain George A. Con- 
verse, Civil Engineer C. E. Asserson, 
Naval Constructor J. H. Linnard, 
Commander E. H. Leutze and Lieu- 
tenant Commander S. A. Stanton. 



Passengers and Crew of Stranded 
Steamer Were All Rescued. 

A cable dispatch from Faramau, 
Bouches Du Rhone, France, says: 
"After a night of terrible suspense all 
the passengers and orew of the French 
ship Russie. from Oran, Algeria, whioh 
stranded near here during a violent 
storm Monday, have been safely landed 
through the heroic efforts of fisher-

Situation In South Africi Necessitates 
Fortification of Cape Town.

allowed to come through. The state 
of affairs has practically necessitated 
the fortification of Cape Town.

Is Given Fatal Dose of "Knockout 
Drops" While In An Intoxi- 
cated Condition. 

Robert Bryan, alias "Sailor Bob," 
alias "Jack Harris," wanted in Phila- 
delphia for complicity in the murder 
there, on Friday night last, of Rev. 
Father Rigel, a prominent Catholio 
priest, was arrested in 'New York 
Thursday night. He made a confes- 
sion, implicating several others, whose 
uames were not divulged. On the 
uight of the murder there went to 
Bryan's Fn'.oon in Philadelphia a man, 
whose name Bryan gives, but which 
is withheld, accompanied by three 
companions, one a priest, the Rev. 
Fattier Rigel. The latter was very 
much intoxicated. 

The four men gave frequent orders 
for bee^ which the priest always in- 
sisted on paying for. Each time he 
paid he displayed a large roll of bills. 
He was so intoxicated that he drop- 
ped bills on the floor. The men struck 
his hands and made him drop more. 
Bryan admits getting $19 in that man- 
ner, and asserts that others got more. 
This continued for some time, when 
the men left the room. He returned 
with a small vial which Bryan says 
was filled with laudanum and chloral. 
Two glasses of beer were poured out, 
one of which was drugged. Bryan 
says that after the priest had taken 
the beer the man who had drugged 
him admitted he was going to rob tho 

Bryan then said that he could not 
allow that in his place, and made the 
men take the priest out of the room. 
He says he knew nothing further 
about the affair until Saturday morn- 
ing, when he was told that tho body 
of the priest had been found in the 
hallway of the house next door. Bryan 
said that he became frightened and 
left town. 

It is said that Bryan was arrested 
for highway robbery in 1897, and his 
picture is in the rogue's gallery under 
the name of Jack Harris. 

Father Rigel was buried at Phila- 
delphia. Over fifty priests attended 
the funeral, the services being held 
at the church of which he was the pas- 


Atlanta Street Car Company Claims 
Title to a City Avenue. 

Declaring that the franchise granted 
by the Atlanta ciiy council and alder- 
manic board to the Atlanta Rapid 
Transit company on Hunter street and 
Cberokee avenue was not legal, the 
Atlanta Railway and Power company 
applied to the superior court of Fulton 
county for an injunction to compel the 
Rapid Transit company to stop its 
work of laying track on the line of the 
Grant park route. 

Judge Lumpkin issued a temporary 
injunction and ordered that the At- 
lanta Rapid Trsnsit Company show 
cause before him on the morning of 
the 19th why this order should not ba 
made permanent. 

The most significant and interesting 
part of the paper presented to the 
judge was as follows: 

"Your petitioner is the owner of all 
the property composing the entire 
width of said Cherokee avenue from 
Georgia to Augusta avenue, and of 
half tho width of said avenue from 
Augusta avenue to Atlanta avenue, to 
which said city of Atlanta has never 
acquired title; that the title to same is 
in your petitioner, who is in possession 
of same, and to which, by virtue of 
said franohise, granted as aforesaid, 
the said Atlanta Rapid Transit Com- 
pany has acquired no right whatever."

Passengers Landed After Four Days 
of Suffering: on the Wreck. 


All TTail Been Driven to the Forecastle 
and Reduced to tlie T.afit Food— Disaster 
Due to Mistaking the Farnman For 
tiie Plenier Light on the Coast Known 
as "The Mariners' Graveyard." 

AXarseilles, Franco.— The passengers 
of the mail steamship Russie, which 
went ashore Monday on the coast near 
the village of Faranam, have been 
landed. None of the passengers or 
crew was ill on account of the expe- 
rience of the four days. The first per- 
sons landed were a woman and her 
six-months-old baby. The "passengers 
said that during their four days' excit- 
ing experience they suffered chiefly 
from hunger. 

The women brought ashore from the 
wreck were exhausted from the lack 
of food nnd exposure. They were 
scarcely able to stand when they, 

First Officer Gautherot, of the Rus- 
sie, says that all except the watch 
were asleep when the vessel struck at 
5 o'clock on Monday morning. The 
passengers rushed on the deck half 
clad and in a state of panic. The cap- 
tain ultimately reassured them and 
persuaded them to go below, but soon 
saw that it would be foolish to at- 
tempt to launch them in the sea that 
was running. 

Throughout Monday the vessel was 
continuously pounded by huge break- 
ers, and toward evening the after part 
of the steamer began to break up. 
Nevertheless, the after holds were dry 
until early Tuesday inorning.,By night, 
as wave after wave battered the 
wreck, the after holds and engine 
room were deluged with water. The 
ship quivered in every plate, rolled 
violently, and began to settle by the 
stern. The passengers took refuge in 
the saloon and smoking room. 

The women recovered first from the 
panic and showed considerable self- 
restraint, but when an enormous wave 
thundered aboard and smashed in the 
saloon door panic was renewed. The 
crew, however, with prompt energy, 
blocked the breach with mattresses. 

The night that followed was awful- 
The sea became more and more fu- 
rious, aud the passengers huddled 
where they could. Some lashed them- 
selves in the rigging, and some loudly 
bewailed their fate. In the morning 
the sea stove in the starboard quarter 
and the ship _ heeled to an angle of 
fifty degrees. ' All expected that their 
end had come. By evening only the 
forehold was dry, one bulkhead having 
kept it water-tight. 

Thursday night was a terrible one". 
At 3 o'clock Friday morning the re- 
port of a cannon brought all on board 
to their feet. It was a signal that help 
was at hand. As dawn glimmered the 
sea began to abate and a lifeboat 
reached the wreck. The women were 
transierred to it. Other boats fol- 
lowed and all were ashore by 8 o'clock. 
All had been drenched for days, but 
none were ill beyond the temporary 
Indisposition caused by hardship. 
Some of the passengers saved part of 
their belongings, but the crew lost 
everything they had. The captain was 
the last person to leave the ship. The 
lack of food was not absolute. There 
were some artichokes, oranges and 
canned meat, and there was plenty of 
wine aboard. 

The accident was duo to confusing 
the Faraman and Tlenier lights. The 
same mistake has caused the loss of 
more than twenty steamers. 

In the afternoon the bridge of the 
steamer was the only part of the vessel 
above water. Had it not been for the 
wind and sea subsiding and the brave 
persistence of the rescuers the scene 
would have closed with a tragedy. 


Luckless Husband Put in Jail After Try-

Chicago. — An attempt to apply col-

Finding a table of figures prepared 
by Miss Katherine Davis, at the Uni-

which showed how a family might live 
on a $1 a week and grow fat, Mr. Fil-

cent-a-day fare into his own household. 

Mrs. Filmor, however, was unable to 
keep within the limits prescribed by 
Miss Davis, and, after disputes in 
which the police acted as peacemakers, 
Filmor disappeared. He was arrested

Monte vallo, Ala. , Jan. 17, 1901. 


Does Monte vallo want theBruns. 
wick & Birmingham railroad? If 
we do want it now is the time to do 
some hustling. A convention has 
been called to meet in Brunswick, 
Ga., on Jan. 24th, and Capt. H. C. 
Reynolds has received a letter from 
Col. Edwin Brobston, one of the 
projectors of the road, urging that 
Montevallo send a delegate to this 
convention, and that the delegate 
come prepared to give all pertinent 
statistics possible relative to the 
best route through this sectiou, 
and what inducements, such as 
probable freight and passenger bus- 
iness and the resources of the ter 
ritory that might be touched by the 
railroad should the route be chosen 
through Montevallo. The letter 
further says that the information 
furnished at this convention will 
assuredly determine the route of 
the road. 

That the Burnswick & Birming- 
ham road wants to get into the 
Montevallo coal fields is certain, 
and The Sentinel believes that Mon- 
tevallo should send a delegate to 
the Brunswick meeting — one who 
is thoroughly posted upon the re- 
sources of this section, and who 
can present the advantages the 
road would derive, should it come 
this way, in the most favorable 

The steel is now in transit to be- 
gin laying the rails at the Bruns- 
wick end of the road, and what we 
do in this matter should be done at 
once. This is an opportunity for 
Montevallo's good which should not 
be permitted to slip away from us. 
Montevallo has a glorious future 
we believe, but our people must 
huslle to bring that future about. 

The. old saying that "all things 
come to him who waits" will not 
hold good in this case. If we make 
no effort to get this road it will 
not come to us. T^et us act and in 
such a manner that the effort shall 
be worth something to us. 

If one doubts uhe necessity of 
good roads in this county a drive 
from here to Cajlera will readily 
disabuse the mi'nd of any such 
thought, and especially is this true 
of the east end qf the road. Mud 
holes in which a horse might easily 
lose himself dot the road all the 
way, while large? rocks obstruct the 
road almost entirely. There is 
a stronsr feeling, as a rule, against 
the voting of bonds for any pur- 
pose, but it wovjld be a saving to 
the farmers of Shelby county, not 
only in dollars but in horseflesh as 
well, if this county was bonded for 
a sufficient aracjunt to build good 
roads. The present roads of the 
county are a disgrace to any com 
munity, and the quicker they are 
remedied the better for all concern- 
ed. The Sentinel would suggest 
the piking of the main thorough- 
fares of the county, and that bonds 
running, say for twenty years, be 
issued to build, them. The bull should 
be taken bv tie horns at once. 

The resignation of Dr. P.iwers, 
president of tdie State University, 
has been accepted by the board of 
trustees. lingoes into effect in 
June. Whem politics cease to be 
the controlling power in the Uni- 
versity, raort good will come out of 
that institution than under the 
presen t condition of affairs, 


An exchauge says the object of 

Mr, Bryan's; paper is "to get him 

acquainted :with the people." The 

result of lasjt November's election, 

it seems to us, demonstrated that 

a large majority of the people are 

as well acquainted with Mr. Bryan 

as they cai J e to be. The people 

have had ejiough.

The city election passed off very 
quietly last Monday, there being 
but one ticket in the field. Out of 
all aM the ballots cast but three 
were scratched. The choice of the 
people was made at the convention 
and everybody was satisfied. Now 
stand by the mayor and council in 
their acts. 

An ecWo from the administration 
of Governor Johnston was the re

There is now no doubt that Mon

people will do some hustling. 


Discussing the political situation, 
and the duty of the country press 
towards the public, The News Or- 
leans $tates says: 

Whatever may be urged to the 
contrary, it is undeniable that the 
country newspaper stands closer to 
the people of its community and is, 
therefore, in position to more cor- 
rectly! reflect local sentiment than 
I he mfetropolitan journal can ever 
hope to attain. Of course, there 
are cyuntry journals, as there are 
city lournals, have no opinions 
of thl'ii- own, but are blown about 
by ejery'kind of doctrine and false 
sentiment that fur tbs moment may 
aypwars to have promise of popu 

larity; but in the main the country 
editor is observant and is not so 
likely to be influenced by the pres- 
sure of large private and selfish in- 
terests, as is so often the case with 
his more pretentious confrere upon 
the metropolitan press. 

The country press ought to have 
more influence with the strictly 
rural population than the city dai 
lies can. As a general thing the 
readers of the country weeklies are 
men who do not patronize the dai- 
lies. In most cases the mail facil- 
ities are not such as to authorize 
the peopie to go to the expense of 
a daily, and, besides, the farmers, 
as a general rule have neither the 
time nor inclination to read a new 
paper every day, even if they could 
obtain it, which is not often the 

For these two reasons especially 
our country brethren have the best 
chance to reach the rural voters, 
and should lose no opportunity to 
in terest and instruct them. It is 
unfortunately true, as The States 
suggests, that some of these papers 
have no opinions, or are afraid to 
express them, but it ought not to 
be so. That, it is so however, does 
not relieve others of the duty of 
creating public opinion and leading 
it in the right direction instead of 
waiting for others to do the work- 
both for them and their readers. 
The idea that a country weekly is 
without influence is unjust to them 
and ought not to be entertained, 
nor would it be if the editor would 
assert themselves and become 
guides and instuctors instead of 
blindly following the way marked 
cut by the metropolitan press. 

There is undoubtedly a wide 
field and much good work for the 
country papers if they will do what 
they should and cau do, — Mont- 
ery Advertiser.

As a general proposition, s vs 
the Montgomery Advertiser, il i 
the duty of the citizens ol am towr,

for their interests. There is not a 
newspaper in the Si ate that does 
not do more fur others than it gets 
p«i*n- for, and this is especially true 
of the count r*' weeklies. In many 
cases a merchant in a little town 
or village thinks lie is acting very 
liberally if be subscribes and pays 
one dollar a y >r for his home pa- 
per, yet he, expects the editor to 
continually boom the town. If Hi

The stock they carry is of the best at, d

All who believe in a good city govern- 
ment should lend every aid to the new

Mr. M. R. Ham informs The Sentinel 
that he has sold his lease of the St. 
' George Hotel to Mrs. S. L. Harris, of

lake posss>sion on Feb. 1st. Mr, and

Entertained . 

The young men who have been so 
nicely entertained by the young women 
of the Nothing-to-do Circle several times 
during the winter became enthused 
with the idea that they "must do some- 
thing" or their reputation for hospit- 
ality would go by default and a receiver 
be appointed to sween up the remains 
and carry to some faraway clime and 
be buried forever from the gaze of men. 
Taking Mrs. I. L. McConaugliv into 
their confidence they decided to give 
the Circle a dinner— give its members 
something to do. *>r. and Airs. Mc- 
Conaughy kindly invited the young men 
to use their home. The dinner was to 
have been in the nature of a surpris.', 
but in some wav the e surprises always 
leak out and this was no exception. 

About 'J o'clock Tuesday night the 
parlors of the McConaugliv borne pre- 
sented a pretty scene. The rooms were 
thronged with lovely women beautifully 
gowned, and young men who looked 
their best. At Si: 30 the doors ol the 
dining room were thrown open and one 
might be pardoned for thinking he was 
permitted a glimpse of faii viand and 
wherein none but angels dared to tread, 
and the an els of earth— luVely Women 
— were invited to enter, and the do- 
mains were invaded', on sufferance, by 
the ''lords of creation." The room and 
long table were handsomely decorated 
with carnations, ferns and eveigreens, 
and above the table was suspended a 
huge bell of evergreen. There was ex- 
tended irum this bell a number of rib- 
bon str aids the objective point of each 
being a' cover. The dinner was of four- 
teen courses and during its serving the 
hostess would pioinpt some one to draw 
the ribbon opposite their coyer. From 
the depths of the bell would be drawn 
some article with a message attached. 
It was like Courting the secrets of the 
impenetrnble future without "crossing 
ttie palms wi' sil'i ." The gentlemen 
each drew a little circlet of gold to 
which was attached a bangle, and' upon 
tins was engraved "S. T D. C." (Noth- 
ing-to-do Circle), this little souvenir he 
was u quested to present,- with appro- 
priate words, to the lady whom he had 
handed' in to dinner. What the ladies 
drew for their gentlemen friends, well, 
we prefer the ladies tell yon. 

During the dinner h'appv badinage 
and scintillating sparks ol wit, came 
from everv direction, and good cheer 
o'ershadowed all. But like all gather- 
ings there must come the end/and' after 
a new day had been born, and the in- 
dicator upon the face ol the clock 
pointed to two' figures the goodnights 
were said and the guests wended their 
way homeward. 

The success of the affair is due to the 
untiring efforts of Mrs. Mc.Conaughy , 
and to whom the young men art grate- 

Those present were Mr. and Mrs. J. 
L. McConaugliv, Misses Reynolds, Cal- 
liris, Austill. McMalh, Phelan, Evans, 
Latham, Flits, Latham, Harwell and 
Wade, and Messrs. Robbins. Givhan, 
Dey, Bandy, Nabors, Latham, McCon- 
augliv, Ward, West, Lee, Dial an 1

The Recital. 

The recital given Saturday afternoon 
by the students of the Music Depart- 
ment of the A. G. I S., was one of the 
most attractive ever given in the Col- 
lege Chapel. 

The significance of the department 
colors (blue and white) were fully ex- 
emplified in the musical numbers ren- 
dered by the pupils. 

The rendition of the duet by Misses 
Fzelle and Martin put everyone in a 
listening humor so bright ato'd' cheery 
was it. 

!?L-lmbert's Impromptu was played 
with great ease and feeling by Miss 
Eva Thomas, so also' was Narcissus as 
given by Miss Carrie Ham. 

Mi'ss Helen Rolfe played 1 Heller's 
composition in a faultless manner and 
with an expression that made it a de- 
lightful number. 

The Biographical Sketch read by Miss 
Mona Meyers Just before his Sonata, 
which she played with great brilliancy 
and skill added much to the interest 
which that number inspired. 

The vocal numbers gave a pleasing 
variety to the program, and each pupil 
sang with great ease and expression. 

The Chorus Class gave a fitting finale 
to a delightful' program, the interpret- 
ing of which reflects much credit tipon 
the teacher's as well as students of the 
music department. The recital did not 
degenerate, a's is sometimes the case, 
into a purely mechanical accomplish- 
ment of technical difficulties, but Was a 
smooth, spirited play of brilliant 
musical fireworks, the pleasing effect of 
Which can only be produced by those 
who are interested in their work, and 
feel in a great measure that which they 
are to interpret.

For Mortgaging Prop r;y 
belonging to Another. 


Joe Davenport Said to Have Mortgaged the 
Prorerty of A P. Howison. 

On Tuesday Joe Davenport, living 
near Randolph, was arrested upon the 
charge of mortgaging property that did 
not belong to him. The particulars, a's 
near as we can learn, are as fallow's": 

Last April a man giving his name as 
J , W. Robinson came to the store of 
George Kroell and wanted 1 credit',' offer-- 
ing to give a ihor'fgage upon a team of 
mules to secure payment (or tire goods 
he wanted to buy. This was satisfac- 
tory, and Robihsori' was sold goods to 
the amount of $50. He gav"e his note 
and' executed the mortgage. The note 
fell due a short time ago. but no trace 
of Robinson, who claimed to live near 
Randolph, otild be'lound. 'The team 
was found, and it Wao aliso discovered 
that the term in question belonged to 
A. P. Howison and that he had ovvned 
the team .Mrice long before the time the 
mbrtgage is said to have been giVe'ii. 

Who, then, was Robinson, aii'd what 
had become of liim'? It was decided to 
make a house Canvas of the Community 
about Randolph. Charlie Smith, a clerk 
at KroelPs who sold the goods to Rob- 
inson, with an officer piitin a week and 
the result, was the arrest on Tuesday of 
Joe Davenport who Mr. Smith affirms 
i3'the man to whom he sold the goods 
last April, arid' who, it is alleged, rep- 
resented hiiri'self as J. W. Robinson 
and signed that name to the note and 

Davenport! was arrested and brought 
to Montevallo for* a prelirhinary trial, 
which resulted in bis being held to the

Tlie Balloon Burst. 

The roost dreadful aeronautic posi- 
tion, pea-haps, which it is possible to 
conceive is that described in "Memoirs 
of Sir Claude de Orespigny." Burnaby, 
a noted aeronaut, was making an as- 
cent from Creraorne with two French- 
men, one of whom was tie Inventor 
of the balloon in use. When they 
were about a mile and a half high, the 
appalling discovery was made that the 
neck of the aerostat, which should 
have been left open to allow the gas to 
escape, was still tied up with a silk 
handkerchief. The balloon was now 
quite full, and the atmoapherie pres- 
sure was rapidly decreasing as the 
aeronauts ascended, whilo the gas, 
having no exit, continued to "expand. 
It was impossible to get at the neck 
and loosen the fatal handkerchief, and 
to make disaster doubly sure, the 
valve-line was out of reach. The only 
thing the men could do was to git still 
and await the bursting of the balloon 
and the fatal dash to earth, WJthln a 
few minutes the balloon burnt, and 
instantly began to rush earthward 
with increasing velocity. But by a 
piece of wonderful good fortune, the 
balloon in Its downward coursa met 
the resistance of the air in such a 
way as to form a huge paraehute, and 
the happy aeronauts landed unhurt in 
a field just outside the city. 

Man Eats Dead CeDa. 

Prof. B. Tyler of Indianapolis says 
that human life would average three 
or four times longer than U dose if 
people would reject the B»mel«C8 prac- 
tice of cooking their food. Aninjils 
and fowl live much longer in propor- 
tion to the period of full development 
than man. Says Prof. Tyler: "Man, 
for some unknown reason, eats dead 
cells (cooked cells) to replace the dead 
cells that have been separated from 
the body. In cooking tood all ths 
acids and gases so necessary for the 
conservation and preservation of idaal 
health escape with tha steam, and the 
food retains a greater supply of ash, 
lime and othar such substances than 
nature requires for the amount of food 
taken into the system." 


Maritime Comiuert-e of, (ireat Ilrllaln 
Shown In Blsf lluures. 

Gigantic though the ' maritime com- 
| merce of Great Britain is, it la still 
i rapidly increasing. At present that 
country's foreign tradoj la equal to oao- 
ilfth of that of the whole world in 
value. According to Lloyd's Register 
of shipping for 1900-1, no less than 
7,020 3teamers, agsre^ating 11,518,759 
tons, and 1,890 sailing vessels, repre- 
senting a tonnage of 1 • 727,687 tons, are 
owned by various companies through- 
out Great Britain. Ifhen the various 
colonies own 910 steamers of 635,331 
tons and 1,011 sailing vessels equal to 
384,477 tons between them. Therefore, 
it will be seen that the grand total for 
Great Britain and her colonics is as 
follows: 7,930 stearpers, aggregating 
12,149,090 tons; 2,90|8 sailing vessels, 
aggregating 2,112,164 .tons; grand total, 
10,838 vessels, aggregating 14,261,254 
tons. According to Lloyd's, the whole 
of the world's over-sea traffic, with the 
exception of the sm|aller insignificant 
states, is carried on with 28,422 vessels 
of all kinds, representing a gross ton- 
nage of 29,043,728 tons. Therefore, it 
will be seen that Gr^at Britain and her 
colonies own about one-third of the 
world's vessels, amounting to nearly 
half the world's gjross tonnage. The 
magnitude of potentiality of the mari- 
time prosperity of / Great Britain ha3 
been graphically illustrated the past 
few months, owing to the state of af- 
fairs in China. When Great Britain 
went to war with ttje South African re- 
publics the whole <}>f her 230,000 troops 
were dispatched from British soil in 
their transports without any appre- 
ciable interference with her mail ser- 
vices to the varioua parts of the world. 
True, some of the larger, more com- 
modious, the fleeter vessels tfere "com- 
mandeered" to accelerate the passage 
of the troopa to the seat of war, but 
their places upon the mail services 
were easily filled by other boats, and 
the international traffic has been car- 
ried on in its uspal manner. Indeed, 
it was difficult to ibelteve that the coun- 
try was at war, since every thing was 
accomplished so smoothly and without 
the slightest hitoh. But the game can- 
not be said in connection with the 
maritime commerce of other nations. 
The transportati|On of the troops from 
Germany to China wag such a tax upon 
the young coudtry that its ordinary 
maritime traffic • was in danger of be- 
ing absolutely (jlialocated, Tha solu- 
tion of the difficulty was the chartering 
of British vessala, which were readily 
obtained. Russia was plaoed in the 
same dilemma, | and when France was

Man frankly Admits Travel 
Checks Are Bluffs. 

A distangy; looking young man 
boarded a FoMxteemth street car at 
Massachusetts: avenue the other night. 
He was carryflng a leather suit easo. 
Pasted all over tha suit case were la- 
bels indicating much foreign travel — 
steamship pasters slapped on at Diep- 
pe, Havre, Oatend, Bremen, Cherbourg, 
Liverpool, Yarmouth, Naples, and rail- 
road labels tliat bore the names of all 
lines all the way from Constantinople 
to St. Petersburg. The young man of 
distangy appearance put the suit case 
down between his legs, and all the 
people in thje seats opposite began a 
fascinated sojrt of inspection of the la- 
bels. A stout man with several of the 
component parts of a jag who sat next 
to the young - man seemed to regard the 
labels with; particular interest. He 
stooped ov'er and deciphered them 
carefully and elaborately and then he 
looked up at the owner of the suit case 
with a leer. 

"Been artxind right smart, hain't 
you, podnetf?" he Inquired. 

Tha young man rekarded him with 
a smile. 

"Never ibeen farther away from 
Washington than New York in my 
life," he rfeplied, without any hesita- 
tion whatsoever. "I got that whole 
bunch of labels for half a dollar at a 
little money exchanging joint, down 
near the Battery, in New York. Hot 
scheme, isn't it?" 

The frankness of the statement so 
dazed several of the passengers who 
overheard, it that they got off at the 
wrong theater— Washinirton Post

This picture tells its own story of sisterly affection. The

ly with those irregularities and menstrual difficulties which 
sap the life of so many young women. 

Lydia E. Pinkliam's Vegetable Compound can 
always be relied upon to restore health to women who thus 
suffer. It is a sovereign cure for the worst forms of female 
complaints— that bearing-down feeling, weak back, falling 
and displacement of the womb, inflammation of the ovaries, 
and all troubles of the uterus or womb. It dissolves and 
expels tumors from the uterus in the early stage of develop- 
ment and cheoks any tendency to cancerous humors. It 
subdues excitability, nervous prostration, and tones up the 
entire female system.

" Dear Mks. Pinkuam :— I was a sufferer from female weakness for 
about a rear and a half. J have tried doctors and patent medicines, but 
nothing helpod me. I underwent the horrors of local treatment, but re- 
ceived no benefit. My ailment was pronounced ulceration of the womb. 

I suffered from intense pains in the womb and 
ovaries, and the backache was dreadful. I had 
leucorrboea in its worst form. Finally, I grew so 
weak I had to keep my bed. The pains were so 
hard as to almost cause spasms. When I could 
endure the pains no longer, I was given morphine. 
My memory grew short and I gave up all hope of 
getting well. Thus I dragged along. To please 
my sister I wrote to Mrs. Pinkham for advice. Her 
answer came, but meantime I was taken worse 
and was under the doctor's caro for a while. 

" After reading Mrs, Pinkham's letter, I con- 
cluded to try her medicine. After taking two 
bottles I felt much better ; but after using six 
bottles I was cured. All of my friends think my 
cure almost miraculous. I thank you very much 
for your timely advice and wish you prosperity 
in your noble work, for surely it is a blessing to 
I havo lull and complete faith in the Lydia 
Compound." — Grace B. BTANSBUsr,

Shipbuilding In Germany. 

Consul 1 Winter reports from Anna- 
berg, Oct, 2, 1900: "During the past 
ten yearsj, ship building in Germany 
has beepme a great Industry. Old 
wharves lhave been torn away and new 
and larger ones constructed in their 
places. ( The present capacity of all 
the wharves does not meet the de- 
mands of the German merchant ma- 
rine. Mainy orders must etlll be placed 
In foreigjn oountries. At present twen- 
ty-two ships are being built in Eng- 
land for Hamburg alone. During the 
first hallf of the present year the dock 
owners j and shipbuilders of Stettin, 
Kiel, Flensburg, and Bremen have in- 
creased; their capital stock on the 
whole, by $1,878,000. Many new en- 
terprises are being planned. In the 
neighborhood of Nordenham, on tho 
Lower jW'esel, large Wharves are being 
projectad, A wharf for Btraleund Is 
being jjilannod which will cost nearly 
$1,000,500. It is also reported that a

Fight Among Prominent Citizens 
—Cutting Affray Among Ne. 
groes—Other State News 

Fight Between Newspaper Men. 

A general fight participated in by 
Frank P. Glass and Maj. W. W. 
Screws, of the Advertiser, on the one 
eide and Messrs. W. W. Hill, Wiley 
Hill, Dr. L. L. Hill, Dr. R. 8. Hill on 
the other occurred on Perry street, 
Montgomery, near the office of the 
Advertiser, Friday night, Jan. 11, at 
11 o'clock. The prominence of the 
participants caused muoh excitement, 
many people being on the streets at 
the time leaving the theatre. More 
or less all the participants received 
bruises, but no serious injuries re- 

The relations between the Hills and 
the Advertiser editors have been 
strained for some while and the im- 
mediate cause of the affray was the 
publication by tl e Advertiser 
of an editorial in reference 
to the appearance for the defense in 
some criminal cases of W. W. Hill 
who is assistant county solicitor. 

Messrs. Glass and Screws left their 
office at 11 o'clock for their homes, ac- 
companied by the two young sons of 
Mr. Glass and Ben Screws, youngest 
son of Major Screws. They had not 
gone more than twenty-five steps 
when they met W. W. Hill and Wiley 
Hill. As the party passed one of the 
Hills called to Mr Glass and as the 
latter turned he was attached by W. 
W. Hill. 

A general fight ensued and in a mo- 
ment Dr. L. L. Hill, Dr. K. S. Hill 
and T. B. Hill, brothers, were upon 
the soene and engaged in the melee. 
The fight lasted for some moments 
and eye-witnesses testified that it was 
finally stopped by W. W. Hill and 
Wiley Hill drawing pistols. Neither 
Messrs. Screws nor Glass was armed, 
an open umbrella being their only 
available weapon. About the time 
the guns were drawn the police arrived 
and all of the Hills save Dr. T. B. 
Hill, were arrested. They were 
charged with assault to murder. 

Alabama Industrial Properties Sold. 

Eugene Zimmerman ha3sold his in- 
terest in the Northern Alabama Ooal, 
Iron and Eailway Company, Includ- 
ing the Talladega furnaoe, Birming- 
ham and Atlantic railway, and Coal 
City mines, to Ladenburg, Thalman 
& Co., of New York city. The deal 
has just been consummated, and no 
particulars are known, but an official 
in tho Talladega office informs the 
News representative that the furnace 
will doubtless go in blast at a date 
not far distant. 

It has been generally understood 
that the conflicting Interests of Mr 
Zimmerman and Landenburg, Thai- 
man & Co. have been the means of 
keeping the furnace idle, and now 
that the property goes into the hands 
of one company it is reasonable to 
suppose that operations at the fur- 
nace will be resumed. Seme months 
ago the furnace was shut down for re- 
pairs, but the repair work was discon- 
tinued in a short time on account of 
the conflicting interests, as above

Cutting Affray Among Negroes. 
News comes from Green Grove of a 
serious cutting affray in which several 
negroes are involved. Tho affair oc- 
cured at church. Ollie Williams, one 
of the deacons, was passing around 
the contribution box when D. Holmes 
dropped in a coin and tried to recover 
chango. Williams refused to allow 
this and the congregation broke up in 
disorder. Outside of the door friends 
of both parties get out their knives 
and set about lighting iudiecriminate- 
ly. Williams was probably fatully 

A Plague of Rats. 

Many farmers near New Decatur 
are oomplaining of an overplus of rats, 
and in many instanoes the little rodent 
quadrupeds are said to have devoured 
hundreds of bushels of corn for the 
farmer. Such a large number of these 
noxious animals have not infested this 
locality since the fall of 1888, at which 
time they seemed to have been on a 
migratory journey. No one was able 
to explain from where or whenoe they 
came or when they went. It is said 
that a whole army of rats will visit a 
corn crib and cannot be driven off 
until the last ear of corn is eaten up 
by them. Nor do they confine them- 
selves wholly to the barn and crib, but 
in some cases they have invaded the 
dwelling houses in suoh great numbers 
as tobeoome almost intolerable. 

The Crovenendyke family, who re- 
side on a farm in the Tennessee river 
bottoms just opposite New Decatur, say 
that they have so many rats that they 
are exceedingly obnoxious, and that 
the rats are so bold that they run over 
the beds at night, and upon three dif- 
ferent occasions two of the boys have 
had their ears almost bitten off while 
they slept. 

ASiolen Hog and a Broken Neck. 

The following story is printed in 
last week's issue of the Guntersville 
Democrat: "A negro named Andy 
Horton was kilted on Dink Russell's 
place, near Brooksville, the other day. 
Mr. Russell had killed hogs and left 
the cleaned porkers hanging over 
night on a pole. In the night Horton 
went to the pole and shouldered a fine 
porker, gambol stick and all. As he 
climbed a fence near by the top plank 
broke, throwing the hog across Hor- 
ton's neck, the gambol stick going 
over his head and jerking him down, 
breaking his neck. His body was 
found at sunrise by Mr. Russell, J. F, 
Crumpton and others on the place. 

Girl Drowned at Prattville. 
The body of Nora, the little 11-year 
old daughter of J. F. Leary, who was 
drowned Thursday by falling in the 
Autauga creek about two hundred 
yards below the ice factory, was found 
lodged against a raft about three hun- 
dreds yards below the plaoe where 
she fell. It appears that ihe girl, 
with her two small brothers, started 
across the creek on a foot log, and it 
is supposed that Nora's head became 
dizzy and she fell in the water. At 
this place in the creek the current is 
very swift, going at the rate of at least 
fifteen miles an hour, and is about 
twelve feet deep, so that the ohild did 
not even come to the top of the water 
after falling in. 

The Keg Fact ry at Ensley Sold. 

The barrel and keg factory of J. R. 
Raibel & Co., at Ensley, has been 
sold to the Alabama Steel & Wire 
Company, which uses the larger part 
of the production. The nail mill de- 
partment of the mill has for soma 
time been making 3,000 kegs of nails 
per day and kegs in that number 
have been taken from the Raibel fao- 
tory. The factory is, in fact, an ad- 
junct of the rod and nail mill, and its 
acquisition will prove of great conven- 
ience to the new owners. 

Big Deal to Be Kecorded at Tusk a 

Judge J. C. Brown, judge of pro- 
bate, received last Friday from Col. 
J. M. Falkner, attorney for the Louis- 
ville and Nashville Railroad at 
Montgomery, a deed of trust given 
by the railroad company to the New 
York Trust and Banking Company. 
This deed was executed to secure 
$75,000,000 and required stamps to 
tho amount of $18,000. The deed 
did not have the stamps on it, so was 
not recorded until the stamps could 
be supplied. 

Will Sell Church Building if Sexton is 
Not Paid 

The St. John A. M. E. Church 
(colored) situated at No. 809 Madison 
avenue, Montgomery, will bo sold in 
a few days for salary due tho sexton, 
unless tho affair Is settled with tho 
court authorities. 

The sexton, Aaron Graham, claims 
that the church owes him tho sum of 
$18. 98 for services rendered, and that 
it refuses to pay him. 

A few days ago the Circuit Court 
issued au order to the Sheriff request- 
ing him to proceed with the sale or 
disposal of the church at the proper 
time and according to the require- 
ments of the law. 

Heavy Shipment of Stcol. 

A shipment of three thousand tons 
of steel has been made from Ensley, 
to Glasgow, Scotland. 

The shipmont is not an experiment 
order, but is one of the regular trade 
established by the Tennessee Coal, 
Iron and Railroad Company and the 
order came in the usual oourse of 

The steel was shipped in billet form 
and will sail from Now Orleans with- 
in the next few days. It is said to be 
consigned to agents of consumers and 
not to agents of the company. In 
other words it will go direct to the 
trade instead of to agents to be sold 
after arriving in Glasgow. 

From the Poor House lo a Comforta- 
ble Home. 
An old man by the name of Wright, 
who was sent to the oounty poor house 
last July because he was sick and had 
no money and no relatives to care for 
him, had a streak of good luck last 
week. He had been a soldier in the 
Union army, and had a claim for a 
pension that had been hanging fire for 
several years and had about abandoned 
all hope of ever getting anything, 
when he received notification that the 
pension had been allowed, with $4000 
back pay and $12 per month for the 
remainder of his life. He immediately 
walked out of the poor house to a good, 
oomfortable home. 

The total shipment, of pig iron 
from Alabama and Tennsesee points 
in 1909 were 1,327,741 tons, from 
the Birmingham Distriot alone 817,- 
972 tons, exported 288,615 tons. The 
total shipment of oast iron pipe from 
Alabama and Tennessee were 88,950 
tons, from the Birmingham Distriot 
29,114 tons, exported 9,700 tons. 

Local and foreign capitalists have 
about perfected arrangements for the 
establishment in Huntsville of a 
shuttle and bobbin factory for the 
manufacture of all wboden cotton mill 
fixtures. It is announced that nearly 
all of the output of the plant, which 
will be a large one, will be oonsumed 
by the local cotton mills. 

Sam Riley, living near Soottsboro, 
caught a gray eagle one day last week 
that measured six feet two inches 
from tip to tip. It had been carrying 
off pigs, lambs, geese, etc., when Mr. 
Riley set a large steel trap for the 
bird and caught it. He will send it 
to the Oxley Zoo, at Chattanooga. 


Had Just Retired From Gubernatorial 
Chair of Indiana. 

James A. Mount, who retired Mon- 
day at noon from the office of governor 
of the state of Indiana, died suddenly 
at 6:45 o'clock Wednesday night in his 
apartments at the Denison hotel at In- 
dianapolis. He had attended a recep- 
tion tendered by Mrs. Mount to a num- 
ber of prominent ladies of the city du- 
ring the afternoon and shortly after 
the guests departed he started out for 
a walk. 

Upon his return he said nothing 
about being ill, and, after removing his 
hat and overcoat, sat down to read. 
In a few minutes he turned to his wife 
and niece, who were in the room, and 

"I am sick; it's my heart. Send for 
a doctor at once." 

Dr. O. S. Runnells was called and 
found those in attendance at Mr. 
Mount's bedside chafing his feet and 
bands in an effort to revive him. He 
knelt down and listened for a heart 
beat, and, rising on his feet, said: 
"You can do nothing more for him; 
he is dead." 

During the fore'noon Mr. Mount 
visited the office of his former private 
secretary and was in consultation with 
him for several hours. In the after- 
noon he made a speeoh before the In- 
diana State Wool Growers' Associa- 
tion, and was elected president of the 
association. Tart of the time he spent 
in assisting in the entertainment of 
his wife's guests. Three children be- 
side Mrs. Mount are the surviving 
members of the family. 


Neglected Civil Duties In Thsir Relig- 
ious l-.nthusiasm. 

Because a majority of tho city coun- 
cilman of Hiawatha, Kas., refused to 
leave a religious revival meeting and 
attend the regular weekly council 
meeting, S. Hunter, mayor, tendered 
his resignation. Unable to secure a 
quorum to transact business, he .sent a 
sheriff to tho revival to compel the 
council men to present themselves at 
the city hull. A majority sent word 
tltut they "hud to attend the revival 
and could not come." 


Such Is the Declaration of 
Ex=President Cleveland 


"There Is Need of Dutch Con 
servatism to Steady Popular 
Impulse," He Says. 

The Holland Society in New York 
held its sixteenth annual dinner at 
the Waldorf Astoria Thursday night. 
The Rev. Dr. Henry Van Dyke, presi- 
dent of the society, presided. On his 
right sat ex-President Cleveland, 
There were 600 persons present. 

Mr. Cleveland prefaced his remarks 
with an acknowledgement that on such 
occasions as this he was a sermonizer 
and pleaded as an excuse the pressure 
bf great responsibilities in the past 
and the need of "Dutch conservatism" 
to steady popular impulse. He re- 
ferred to "this time of headlong na- 
tional heedlessness." 

Mr. Cleveland said in part: 

"The question is suggested 'wheth- 
er in present conditions this conserv- 
atism characterizes the conduct or 
guides the sentiment of our people.' 
There can be but one answer to this 
question. Conservatism has in a great 
degree been jauntily cast aside, or 
condemned as opposed to our coun- 
try's welfare and glory. A strange 
voyage has been entered upon without 
count of cost and without chart or com- 
pass. The tried and sure foundations 
of our liberty and national happiness 
have been discredited. Beverence for 
our national traditions has been re- 
laxed and satisfaction with our coun- 
try's mission has been undermined. 

"War, even with the world's ad- 
vanced civilization, may still be some- 
times neoessary and justifiable or not, 
the demoralization that follows in its 
taain can never be evaded. It teaches 
bloody instructions, which, iu a coun- 
try whose citizens do the fighting, can- 
hot fail to leave their impress for a 
time upon public and private life in 
time of peace: 

"Thirty years after the close of the 
war for the preservation of the union, 
a treaty of arbitration was formulated 
between the United States and Great 
Britain which, if completed, would 
have gone far toward removing every 
pretext of war between the two coun- 
tries. This treaty failed of confirma- 
tion in the senate of the United States. 
Less than five years passed and these 
English speaking champions of peace 
and arbitration are still operating on 
parallel lines — one in the Philippines 
and the other in South Africa — but no 
longer for peace and arbitration. 
Both are killing natives in an effort to 
possess their lands* 

"This indicates a sad relapse, and in 
our case it is a most serious one. If 
England suoceeds in her attempt in 
South Africa, she will but mid another 
to her list of similar acquisitions; a 
brave host will be subjugated and be- 
cause of our engagement in a similar 
venture in another quarter they will 
miss the expression of American sym- 
pathy which we are accustomed to ex- 
tend to those who struggle for national 
life and independence. 

"On the other hand, with success in 
our subjugating effort a new, untried 
and exceedingly perilous situation will 
be forced upon us. We can conquer 
the Philippines, and after conquering 
them can probably govern them. As 
a distinguished bishop has said: 'The 
question is not what we shall do with 
the Philippines, but what the Philip- 
pines will do to us.' 

"Our country will never be the same 
again. Por weal or woe, we have al- 
ready irrevocably passed beyond the 
old lines. 

"The problem is a momentous one. 
In the midst of reckless tumult and in 
the confused rage of national greed 
and bloodiness, let it be proclaimod 
that American freedom and popular 
rule cannot perish except through the 
madness of those who have them in 
their keeping, and by the blood and 
sacrifice of our fathers, by the lofty 
achievements of the free institutions 
they established, by our glorious vic- 
tories of peace and by our reliance on 
the promise of God, let Dutch con- 
servatism enjoin upon our people a 
faithful discharge of their sacred

Of flilitary Academy Is Deeply 
Probed By Investigating 

The congressional crmmittee at 
West Point, N. Y., probed deep into 
cadet fighting traditions Friday. €la- 
det Lynch, of New York, was thor- 
oughly examined by the committee- 
men, as he is looked upon as the au- 
thority on fighting at the academy. 
When General Dick began to question 
he became argumentative and shook 
his finger at the chairman several times 
when parryiDg some of the general's 
mild reproofs. 

At tinfes he leaned across the table 
which separated him from the chair- 
man's table while he spoJce in an in- 
solent, manner to the general. He up- 
held the West Point fighting code, 
and declared that he would fight any 
man of his size and weight, and said 
that any man who would not do like- 
wise was not fit to join the army. 
General Dick exhibited a food deal of 
forbearance, but finally gave up his 
questioning in unconcealed disgust 
after he had given the "fistic expert" 
a sound piece of advice. 

For the first time during the invest' 
igation it was shown Friday that there 
are cadets in the first class. who, from 
the time they entered as plebes, 
have been opposed! to hazing; and fight- 
ing. Cadet Clarke, of Illinois, testi- 
fied to this, and said that these prac- 
tices should be abolished. He was 
complimented by Mr. Dr'jjgs, who 
said that Clarke was a credit to the 

Cadet Douglass MacArthur, who 
on Thursday strenuously denied hav- 
ing 6ohvt2lsi(Jns of hysteria on the oc- 
casion of his being violently exercised 
during the summer encampment of 
1899 at the West Point military acad- 
emy, was called again by the con- 
gressional investigation committee and 
was examined at great length, 


Presence of Troops at Corbi n, Ken- 
tucky, Puts a Quietus 
On Feudists. 

The presence of the soldierr at Cor- 
bin, Ky., had a quieting effectt on the 
citizens or Corbin, and the troops be- 
ing no linger needed, withdrew Friday 
night. While members of the Whites 
and Shotwells are still In Corbin un- 
der arms, they are not being inter- 
fered with by the soldiers, as t hey say 
they have no intention of precipitating 

With the arrest and removal to the 
Williamsburg jail of five members of 
the Shotwells and Rollo White, who 
shot the father of the Shotwell boys 
on Wednesday last, no further trouble 
is anticipated. The funerals t?f the 
three persons killed Wednesday took 
place Friday. James Shotwell was 
buried at his old home, near Rock- 
hold. The sons attended the funeral 
guarded by soldiers. Sutton Farris 
was laid to rest near Corbin and fiusau 
G/ox, at Grays. 

Jit dge Wilder, acting coroner, began 
the investigation in the dynamiting of 
the White store, and the killing qf the 
Cox woman and Sutton Farris. He 
had before him several witnessed, in- 
cluding Roch White, proprietor o/f the 
store which was wrecked, and in ithich 
he and Bill White were guarding their 
brother, who had killed old man Shot- 
well. White did not know any of the 
participants in the rioting, and this in- 
vestigation was not completed. The 
men wounded by the explosion which 
wrecked the White store are doing 
well, their injuries not having beep as 
serious as at first reported. 


Three Murderers of Jennie Bosscheiiter 
Oet Off Lightly. 

Walter C. McAllister, Andrew; J. 
Campbell and William A. Death, three 
of the four persons indicted for ,'the 
death of Jennie Bosschieter, a mill 
girl of Peterson, N. J., who was mmr- 
dered on the night of October 13th 
last, were adjudged guilty of murder 
in the second degree. 

According to the New Jersey law, 
the maximum penalty for the prison- 
ers is thirty years imprisonment. The 
jury took fourteen ballots. 

When the verdict was announced 
the prisoners exhibited neither elation 
nor relief. Judge Dixon thanked hhe 
jury, and said he believed the verdict 
a just one. 


Noted London Shylock Directed ThM 
Poor Be Looked After. 

Samuel Lewis, tho London money 
lender and usurer, who died a fe w 
days ago, left £4.000,000 (820,000;,- 
000), all of which goes, under his wil l, 
to his -widow with the exception of 
£100,000 which is divided among rela,- 
tives. 1 

In his will he expressed a desir e 
that his widow should give in her own 
name £.400,000 to provide dwellings 
for the poor of all creeds, £250,000 to 
the Prince of Wales hospital fund; 
£100,000 to the Jewish board of guar- 
dians of London, £200,000 to the vari- 
ous hospitals. 


The Anti-Canteen Amend- 
ments Knocked Out. 


President HcKiniey Is Authorized 
to Increase Fighting Forces 
At His Pleasure. 

A Washington special says: Tho 
senate passed the army reorganization! 
bill Friday afternoon after a hard 
contest, in which the weak places in 
the measure, and its real purposes, 
were shown up by its opponents. 

It was just before 6 o'clock p. m. 
when the senate finally disposed of 
the bill. The measure having origi- 
nated in the senate, the final question 
was not upon its passage, but on 
agreeing to the senate amendments. 
They were agreed to by a vote of 43 
to 23. 

While party lines were drawn on 
the measure, four Democrats voted 
for it — Senators Lindsay, of Kentucky; 
McLanrin, of South Carolina; Morgan, 
of Alabama, and Sullivan, of Missis- 
sippi. Senator Hoar, of Massachusetts, 
who was detained at his home by ill- 
ness, was paired against the bill with 
Senator Spooner, of Wisconsin. 

The bill has occupied practically the 
entire attention of the senate since tho 
third day of January, when it was 
made the unfinished business. While 
the opposition to it at all stages was 
vigorous, it was never bitter. Numer- 
oUb aifiendments were made to it, but 
in general the committee was sustained 
and the measure, with the exception of 
the elimination of tho canteen clause, 
is not widely different from that re- 
ported to the senate. 

A determined effort to amend the 
bill to provide against the sale of liquor- 
in the Philippines and to prohibit tbe> 
importation of any kind of intoxicants 
into the islands was defeated. 

Every effort to prevent the increase 
in the strength of the army was de- 
feated by a decisive majority. 

A notable speech was delivered dur- 
ing the day by Mr. Hale, of Maine, 
who, while opposing the increase in 
the strength of the army, stated co- 
gently his reasons for supporting the 

The measure was sent to confer- 
ence between the two houses, Sen- 
ators Hawley, Republican, of Connec- 
ticut; Proctor, Republican, of Ver- 
mont, and Cockrell, Democrat, of 
Mississippi, being appointed conferees 
on the part of the senate, 

Mr. Lodge, of Massachusetts, pre- 
sented the credentials of his col- 
league, Mr. Hoar, who was re-eleoted. 
This is his fifth election. With the 
expiration of his present term he will 
have served twenty-four years. 


Trouble May Interfere In Building 
Qovernment Vessels. 

A strike in the Nixon shipyards at 
Elizabeth, N. J., threatens to tie up 
the yard and greatly delay the govern- 
ment work now in progress on ships 
for the navy, besides a number of pri- 
vate contracts, including five subma- 
rine boats. 

The strike took place because nine 
alleged non-union carpenters were 
employed. A delegalion of four men, 
representing the carpenters, painters, 
joiners and calkers, waited on Mr. 
Nixon and asked if he would not dis- 
charge the men. He refused to treat 
with the men and instead of discharg- 
ing the non-union men, discharged 
the delegates. 


All Chinese Peace Commissioners At- 
tach Official Seal. 

A message was received in Washing- 
ton Friday from Minister Conger at 
Tekin stating that the Chinese pleni- 
potentiaries had signed and delivered 
the protocol. This removes the last 
doubt that had arisen as to the sealing 
of the document, for it would not have 
been accepted by the Spanish minister, 
who is the dean of tho corps, unless it 
bore all the seals and signatures neo- 
essary to a full force.

The Board of Revenue has creat- 
ed somewhat of a stir by annulling 
the County of Montgomery's con- 
tract with the Dogwood mines. 

This 'fact was not made public 
until tc»day, when the Board of Re- 
venue book decisive steps to thor- 
oughly' investigate the affairs. 

It is 'understood tnat when this 
contract was annulled that the 
Board made a contract with a Mr. 
Roi»erl who represents a mine in 
North A labanu', to transfer the 
• Montgomery convicts from the 
Dogwood mines to his mines. 

It is; also stated tjiat an order 
was given to the sheriff of this 
county for the delivery to him of 
the Montgomery convicts. 

Both orders are said to have been 
refused and no attentien given to 
their fulfillment. 

The supposition is thai the 
authorities at the Dogwood mines 
do not know in what locality the 
convicts are and consequently can- 
not place their hands upon them. 

It, is further alleged that perhaps 
some of tne convicts have escaped. 

The Board is considering the 
proposition of appointing a com 
mitteo to go to the Dogwood mines 
and investigating the matter. 

The committee which has the

space to historical and personal re 
miriscences and the scenes -and in- 
cidents of the Queen's life. Em- 
phasis is laid upon the fact that 
tier Majesty is now paying the 
penalty for her devotion to affairs 
of State. It is generally recog- 
nized that a few days ago there was 
no harder worker in the kingdom. 

Roughly estimated. She signed 
50,000 documents yearly. No dis- 
patch of any gravity was ever is- 
sued from the Foreign Office until 
seen by the Queen, and some idea 
of the work thus entailed is gath 
ered from the fact that the Foreign 
Office handles considerably over a 
thousand dispatches weekly. 

After every sitting of the House 
of Commons the Government Secre- 
tary in the House was in the habit 
of forwarding to the Queen an ab» 
stract of the business done. She 
personally attend to these, and fie. 
quently returned them with mar- 
ginal notes asking explanations. 

The Montgomery Advertiser, in 
speaking of her death, says: 

"When, on that bright Jume day 
ii: 1837, she became the ruler of the 
United Kingdom, and. although 
not yet out of the tender period of 
girlhood, grasped the scepter of 
one of the mightiest kingdoms on 
the earth, probably not one of that 
vast and enthusiastic company 
which assembled in historic West- 
minister had a thought that for 
more than threescore years her wo- 
man's hand would hold the reins of 
government with such combination 
of firmness, moderation and justice 
as has been the experience of few 
rulers on earth. And least of all 
perhaps, did she look forward to a 
reign almost unexampled in length 
as well as in renown. There was 
in her no gift of second sight, and 
in her court there was no prophet 
to show her that she would still be 
Queen of England when another 
century had made its ad vent 

Albert Edward, who will he 
crowned King of the United King- 
dom in a short, while, has almost 
reached the three score mile-post, 
and consequently has the age and 
experience necessary to make a 
wise and successful ruler of the 
great nation over which he is called 
to rule. How he will fulfill the 
great duties which will devolve on 
him remains for the future to de- 
cide "

a most wonderful book and will op^n

The long discussed question, says the 
Mobile Register, whether the contribu- 
tor to a church collection is entitled to 
take change out of the plate came up 
for discussion during a service in a 
Madison county colored church, last 
Sundi.v night. A worshipper and a 
deacon discussed it, the deacon taking 
the side that the worshipper was not 
entitled to take the change from the 
plate. Thereupon he was invited out- 
side, where the worshipper slashed the 
deacon with a koiie and the worship- 
per's brother mashed the deacon's face 
in with a stone. The parties have been 
arrested and the courts will decide who 
is right.

One of the best ordinances the conn 
cil has thus far passed, is one prevent-

A telegram came yesterday announc- 
ing the illness of Mr. Kruger, who was 
to have given a piano recital in the col- 
lege chapel tomorrow night, and that he 
would be unable to fill the date. This

he may favor us.

Sudden Death. 

Our people were shocked, yesterday 
morning, to hear of the death of little 
Ray Marshall, 8-year-old daughter of 
Mrs. L S. Marshall, for but very few 
knew of her illness. 

About noon, on Tuesday, she was 
taken suddenly ill with what proved to 
be congestion and despite all that Hu- 
man skill could devise she continued to 
grow worse, and at 3 o'clock yesterday 
morning. the end came — the lamp in the 
lile of little Ray flickered and then went 
out, and her soul had gone into the white 
hush of the unseen beyond. The little 
body was but an empty shell from 
which the pearl had been taken, and it 
was sad to .see it returned to earlh be- 
cause of the pearl that had been there. 
But the thoughts of the mother, the 
sisters, while going out after her, will 
turn not downward to the place of dusv 
and decay, but, upward to a brighter, a 
happier world, where some sweet day 
they shall meet her again. 

Ray was a sweet little girl, beloved 
of all who knew her, and she was in- 
deed a constant ray of sunshine in the 

This is the second visit of the angel 
of death to the Marshall liome wilhin a 
year. The hearts were still tender 
with grief at the death of the husband 
ami father, today Ihe wounds are again 
open and bleeding afresh. Mav the 
Great Physician, in His boundless love 
and compassion, soothe the grieving, 
aching hearts of the mother and sisters 
is the earnest, sincere wish of a large 
circle of sympathizing friends. 

The funeral occurred from the home, 
yesterday afternoon, Rev. Liltie, pastor 
of the Presbyterian church, conducting

What suffering frequently results 
from a mother's ignorance ; or more 
frequently from a mother's neglect to 
properly Instruct her daughter ! 

Tradition says "woman must suf- 
fer," and young women are so taught. 
There is a little truth and a great deal 
of exaggeration in this. If, a young 
woman suffers severely she needs 
treatment, and her mother should see 
that she gets it. 

Many mothers hesitate to take their 
daughters to a physician for examina- 
tion ; but no mother need hesitate to 
write freely about her daughter or 
herself to Mrs. Pinkham and secure 
the most efficient advice without 
charge. Mrs. Pinkham's address is 
Lynn, Mass. 


' 1 

Mrs. August Pfalzgraf, of South 
r.yron. Wis., mother of the young lady 
whose portrait we here publish, wrote 
Mrs. Pinkham in January, 1899, saying 
her daughter had suffered for two 
years with irregular menstruation — 
had headache all the time, and pain in 
her side, feet swell, and was generally 
miserable. Mrs. Pinkham promptly 
replied with advice, and under date of 
March, 1899, the mother writes again 
that Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable 
Compound cured her daughter of all 
pains and irregularity.

Recent Election In iirltaEB. 

Speakins of the recent election In 
Great Britain, the London Saturday 
Review says: "What most interests the 
public after a general election is to 
glance at those who are really new to 
parliamentary life, if happily there 
may be a future statesman among 
them. Taking the 150 or so new mem- 
bers in the proper sense of the term, 
there never yet was a general election 
which threw up a smaller proportion 
of men with any sort of distinction, 
intellectual, professional, or scientific."

At Best Woman Has No More Pockets 
than lias the Kangaroo. 

Man is a perfected marsupial. He is 
a creature of pockets. With him the 
necessity of a pouch simply develops 
one. This is the law of evolution. The 
first we read of him as a pocket bear- 
ing animal he was on a level with the 
kangaroo. He then had one pouch, 
fastened to his belt. Now look at him 
and compare him to woman, for whom 
—in his chivalry — he is truly sorry. 
She, in her helplessness, Is usually be- 
hind the kangaroo, and at her best 
only equals him with the one pouoh 
fastened at her waist She has not 
evolved through the law or nature, but 
under the sterner decrees of the dress- 
maker. What a difference between no 
pockets and a score of pockets! The 
first is woman; the other man. Wom- 
an is literally fettered for want of 
pockets. She must carry in her hands 
whatever is not a part of her clothing, 
while man's arms, palms and fingers 
are free— free to help his unfortunate 
sister. Think of five pockets in trous- 
ers, five in vest, live in jacket and five 
in overcoat— 'an exact score in all. 
Some men have more than this. When 
man took up tho handkerchief habit 
he made a pocket for that convenient 
article. He don't have to be picking 
them up— except for the women. He 
made a pocket for his knife and a 
pocket for his watch; a pocket for his 
keys and a pocket for his letters; a 
pocket for his tobacco and a little 
pocket for his car tickets; and he kept 
on making pockets as fast as ho 
needed them. Women, in their help- 
lessness, envy him. They reach out 
to him to borrow his knife, to borrow 
his pencil, to borrow a bit of string, 
and to borrow a dozen articles that he 
usually has stowed away about his 
clothing. He is kind and lends, for he 
Is sorry for them In their arrested de-

drudgery of

by headache, neuralgia, backache, and kidney trouble.

What women need is that 
great Btrengthener anc invigur- 
ator of womankind, Dr. Greene's 
Nervura blood and nerve remedy 
— that remedy which rebuilds 
health and strength, purifies and 
enriches the blood, givesstrength 
and vigor to the nerves, and the 
strong vitality and energy to the 
system which will enable women 
to do their work and yet keep strong and well. It is this great medi- 
cine they need. Nothing else in the world can do its work. 

MRS. M. D. PERKINS, of 100 Q St., So. Boston, flass., says : 

" I was completely run down and could not eat, for tho sight of food made 
me sick. I dlil not sleep at night and was as tired in the morning ns when I 
retired at night. My head and back ached all tho time. I was completely ex- 
hausted If 1 tried to do my housework, and could not walk without being dizzy. 
I was excessively nervous and very weak. 

" Then I began to take Dr. Greene's Nervura blood and nerve remedy, and I 
cannot say ouoUgh in its praise. I have not felt so well for years as I do at the 
present time, thanks to this splendid remedy. 

" I can now eat and sleep soundly, waking mornings Strong and refreshed. 
I do my housework, which is now a pleasure instead of a burden as formerly. 
My weight has in- 
creased ahout twelve

The liisrgest Fair of Tusks. 

In his report upon the trade and

Acting Consul Kestell Cornish states 
that the finest tusks on record in East 
Africa, and probably larger than have 
ever yet been obtained in any part of 
the world, came through Zanzibar last 
year. The elephant from which they 
were obtained was shot by an Arab 
noar Kilimanjaro. These tusks, which 
consisted of perfect Ivory, without a 
particle of disease, measured over ten 
and a half feet from top to base, and 
weighed 224 pound3, and 239 pounds 
respectively. They were sold for 
$5,000. Tlte nearest approach In bulk 
to this pair were found about ten years

How He Shot Two Otters. 

George H. Fisher of Winterport hap- 
pened to see two otters eating fish, and 
he wanted 'both of them, but he knew 
if he shot one the other would get 
away, and so he waited, says the Ban- 
gor (Me.) News. First one would take 
a bite out of tho fish and then the 
other would come up for a share, but 
George waited patiently until both put 
their heads down to take a bite out of 
their fish, when he let go, and as both 
heads were in line, ho shot them 
through the head.

And light dressings of CUTICURA, purest o? 
emollient skin cures. This treatment at onca 
stops falling hair, removes crusts,, scales, and 
dandruff, soothes irritated, itching* surfaces* 
stimulates the hair follicles, supplies the roots 
with energy and nourishment, and makes the 
hair grow upon a sweet, wholesome, healthy 
scalp when all else fails. 


Assisted by Cuticura Ointjient, for preserving, purifying, and beautify- 
ing the skin, for cleansing the scalp of crusts, scales, and dandruff, and the 
■topping of falling hair, for softening, whitening, and healing red, rough, 
and sore hands, for baby rashes, itchings, and chaflngs, and for all the pur- 
poses of the toilet, bath, and nursery. Millions of Women use Cuticura, 
Soap in the form of baths for annoying irritations, inflammations, and 
excoriations, for too free or ofienBlve perspiration, in the form of washes for 
ulcerative weaknesses, and for many antiseptic purposes which readily sug- 
gest themselves to women and mothers. No amount of persuasion can 
induce those who have once used theBe great skin purifiers and beautifiera, 
to use any others. Cuticura Soap combines delicate emollient properties 
derived from Cuticura, the great skin cure, with the purest of cleansing 
ingredients, and the most refreshing of flower odors. No other medicated 
soap is to bo compared with it for preserving, purifying, and beautifying 
the skin, scalp, hair, and hands. No other foreign or domestic toilet soap, 
however expensive, is to be compared with It for all the purposes of the 
toilet, bath, and nursery. Thus it combines, in One Soap at One Price,

Big Bunk Failure. 

The Josiah Morris Bank, of Mont- 
gomery, one of the oldest private 
banking institutions in Alabama, did 
not open its doors for business Satur- 
day morning. The capital stook of 
the bank is $100,000. Deposits are 
believed to be heavy. The assets 
and liabilities are not yet known. At 
the hour of opening the following an- 
nouncement was posted on the door: 
"To the Public: 

"Yesterday some of our checks in 
New York, for which we had made 
provision, were temporarily refused 
by our correspondents, though they 
were afterward paid. This informa- 
tion came to us late, after the close of 
banking hours. Since then a number 
of inquiries have been made and the 
apprehension created convinces ns 
that, in justice to creditors, we ought 
to suspend payment. This condition 
of affairs has arisen from inability to 
make quick realizations on cash and 
the shrinkage of assets. It is hoped 
that the assets prudently arranged 
will pay creditors in full. We have 
not arranged or taken any legal steps 
concerning the disposition of assets, 
but await the wishes of our creditors. " 

Large crowds assembled around the 
bank and much excitement prevailed. 

This (Montgomery) county has 
about $200,000 deposited in the bank 
and the city of Montgomery was also a 
large depositor. The county is prac- 
tically secured by a bond of the 
county treasurer, made with a Mary- 
land company for $120,000. The bank 
itself was surety on tho city treasurer's 
bond. The bank was a depository for 
nearly every railroad entering Mont- 

Awarded $40,000 Damages. 

The damage suit of Mrs. Bettie 
Wilds against the Alabama Great 
Southern railroad came to an end in 
the Tuscaloosa county court Friday 
night, the jury returning a verdict 
in favor of the plaintiff for $40,000. 

The case was given to the jury about 
7 o'clock and in about two hours' 
time a verdiot was reached. 

Mrs. Wilds brought the suit as an 
executor of the estate of William H. 
Wilds, her husband, who was killed 
by an Alabama Great Southern freight 
last September at the oil mill orossing 
in Tuscaloosa. 

Street Fairs. 

Selma will have a street fair and 
cotton carnival in October, probably 
the first week. This was decided at 
a mass meeting of citizens held Friday 
night. A committee of seven citizens 
are to bo appointed to take the initiul 
step, and Selma expects to have 
twoiity thousand visitors during the 
weok of the fair. 

Bessemer is to have a street fair to 
be held from the 4th to the 9th of 
February. This is the same aggrega- 
tion of attractions that Bhowed re- 
cently at Montgomery, Selma and other 
points and is now at Natchez. The 
necessary money has been raised and 
the fair is assured. 

Uardie-Tyncs Company Will Rebuild 

The plant of the Hardie-Tynes ma- 
chine and Foundry, Company in 
Birmingham, which burned last 
week will be rebuilt as was 
generally anticipated. The net loss 
over and above the 852,000 of insur- 
ance, is placod at $70,000. The com- 
pany has many contracts on hand for 
machinery of various sorts and will 
linish contracts in temporary quar- 
ters while tho permanent buildings 
are being erected. 

Fatal Shooting at Burns' Celebration 
4.bout 2 o'clock Friday morning 
the celebration of the birthday of the 
poet, Bobble Burns, at Blossburg 
town hall, was rudely interrupted by 
the firing of several pistol shots by 
Frank Byrum, a miner. 

Early in the evening he had had a 
difficulty with Wofford Rich, a brake- 
man on the Southern road. The men 
were separated by J. D. McKibbons, 
a Southern railway conductor, but la- 
ter renewed the difficulty. 

When the smoke of battle had 
cleared away the dead body of Bich 
lay upon the ground and McGibbons 
had been shot through and through 
and cannot live. 

There were several hundred per- 
sons in the hall, including a number 
of women, and pandemonium reigned 
supreme. Many women fainted and 
several went into hysterics. The 
trouble is said to have been caused by 
jealousy. No arrests have yet been 

Young Woman Fatally Burned. 

A terrible tragedy ocourred at Tus- 
caloosa about 3 o'clook Saturday af- 
ternoon, when Miss Belle Minhinnett 
was burned to death. No one knew 
anything of the burning until they 
heard her making a noise in the bath 
room, where she had gone only a 
short time before. Miss Minhinett 
when found was almost dead, breath- 
ing only a few times afterwards. A 
doctor was hastily summoned, but life 
was extinct when he arrived. The 
deceased was fearfully burned, and 
her suffering must have been intense 
before death relieved her. Miss Min- 
hinnett was about 80 years of age, 
and had been afflioted all of her life. 

Another Woman Fatally Burned. 

Mrs. Ann Scroggins, of Edmond, 
Lawrence Count, was burned to death 
at her home Thursday afternoon. The 
old lady was alone and her clothing 
caught fire from the fire-plaoe. She 
jumped on a bed in a frantic effort to 
smother the flames but fainted too 
soon and was horribly burned. 

Favor Compulsory Education and 
Uniform Text Books. 

The Jefferson County Teachers' In- 
stitute, which was held at North Bir- 
mingham, adjourned Friday. The 
following resolutions favoring com- 
pulsory education were passed: 

"Resolved, That we favor a com- 
pulsory education law for Alabama, 
and therefore heartily endorse the bill 
prepared by a committee appointed by 
a mass meeting of citizens in Bir- 
mingham and the compulsory educa- 
tional committee of the State Educa- 
tional Association, and reoommend 
that the representatives from this 
county use their influence for the 

The following report favoring as 
uniform system of text books was 
made : 

The committee on resolutions rela 
tive to text book uniformity respect- 
fully recommend: That the countj 
superintendent and board of educa- 
tion of Jefferson county be authorized 
to confer with the principals and ed- 
ucational boards of the special dis- 
tricts of the county with a view of ef 
fecting county uniformity of text 
books, and in case of failure theron 
that the oounty superintendent shall 
call a meeting of the leading teachers 
of the connty to act thereon. 

Negro Killed AVhile Working With e 
Stone Derrick. 
About 2 o'clock Friday afternoor: 
Frank Webb, a negro, met his death 
while assisting in unloading Bton< 
for the new Methodist church 
in Selma from a flat car 
Webb had adjusted the grip- 
pers of the derriok onto the stone and 
was waiting while the windlass tight- 
ened up the long wooden arm wher 
all at once there was a sharp crack 
and the rope parted, permitting th( 
heavy piece of timber to dfop with al) 
its added weight. The timber struck 
Webb on the head, killing him in 
stantly, and mangling him In a hor 
rible manner. 

Demopolls Secures Another Large In- 

Demopolis has secured anothei 
large industry, a large lumber plant. 
The site seleoted is just below the 
city, situated between the railroad 
and the river. The property waE 
bought from Mrs Hunnegan. The 
name of the plant is the H. L. Wood 
Lumber Company. 

The sawmills in Alabama cut over 
1:30,000,000 feet of yellow pine lumber 
for the eleven months of 1900, ended 
November 30, and practically tho same 
umount was shipped. 


Hany Millions Will Be 
Saved By the Public. 


Senate Measure Is Radically Dif- 
ferent From That Passed By 
the Mouse. 

Senator Aldrich, chairman of tho 
senate committee on finance, reported 
the war revenue reduotiou bill back to 
the senate Thursday. Tho committee 
reports a oomplete substitute for tho 
bill as it passed the house. Senator 
Aldrich made a statement explaining 
the changes, which in part are us fol- 

Stamp Tax Repealed. — Promissory 
notes, mortgages, bills of lading for 
export, powers of attorney, protest, 
charter, party, certificates of all kinds, 
leases, warehouse receipts, telegraphic 
dispatches, telephone messages, pass- 
age tickets costing less than $30, ex- 
press receipts, bonds, except bonds of 
indemnity, legacies to religious, chari- 
table, literary or educational institu- 

Special Tax Repealed. — Commer- 
cial brokes. 

Taxes Reduced. — Conveyances, in- 
surance, bankers' capital, proprietary 
medicines, cigars, tobacco, beer. 

The statement says that, having al- 
ways in view the revenue require- 
ments of the government, the purpose 
of the committee has been to repeal 
such of the taxes imposed by tho war 
revenue act of 1898 as are most annoy- 
ing and burdensome to tax payers, to 
to retain such as should be kept as a 
permanent part of our revenue system, 
or at least retained until all war taxes 
can be repealed, and to reduce all oth- 
ers as fairly and equitably as possible 
by some general plan of reduction. 
Pursuing this general plan, it has been 
possible to reduee the taxes affected 
approximately about one-half. 

Taking the estimates of the treas- 
ury department as a basis the reduc- 
tion of revenue affected by the bill will 
be nearly $40,000,000, a reduction 
somewhat less than was produced by 
the bill as it passed the house of repre- 

Reductions. — The committee's sub- 
stitute provisions in regard to oigars, 
tobacco, beer, etc., are as follows: 

That on and after July 1, 1901, the 
internal revenue tax on cigars weigh- 
ing more than three pounds per thou- 
sand shall be $3.30 per thousand. 

That on and after July 1, 1900, 
there shall be allowed a discount of 25 
percentum on all sales of collectors 
to brewers and manufacturers of to- 
bacco and snuff upon the stamps pro- 
vided for the payment of internal rev- 
enue taxes upon beer and manufact- 
ured tobacco and snuff, provided, that 
the discount allowed to brewers upon 
beer stamps shall be in lieu of the 
discount of 7J percentum allowed by 
the aot of Juno 13, 1898. The effect 
is to reduce the tax to $1.50 per barrel 
and on snuff and tobacco to 9 cents a 

There is a general reduction of the 
tax on insurance policies and renewals 
and in lieu of the present taxes, special 
taxes shall be imposed to be paid by 
the insurance companies, as follows: 

Life insurance companies, 4 cents 
on the amount insured for each $100 
or fraction of every policy. 

The rate of conveyances, including 
deeds to land, is materially reduced. 
In the existing law all deeds covering 
values exceeding $10 are taxed at the 
rate of 50 cents. The senate commit- 
tee removes the tax on all deeds where 
valuations are below $2,500 and makes 
the tax rate 25 instead of 50 cents. 
For each additional $500 above $3,000 
the tax is to be 25 cents. 

The tax on bankers is fixed at the 
rate of $1 on each $1,000 of capital 
and surplus used by them. 

Section 20 of the existing law per- 
taining to proprietary articles, in- 
cluding drugs, perfumeries, etc., is 
practically rewritten. 

Hemp For Kidnapers.) 

Governor Dockery has sent a mes- 
sage to the Missouri legislature advo- 
cating the passage of a law inflicting 
tho death penalty in cases of kidnaping 
for ransom. 



Relations Between New King and 
Prime Minister are Strained. 

A dispatoh to The New York World 
from London says: 

Prime Minister Salisbury's absence 
from Osborne house during the queen's 
last moments has not been publicly 
explained and causes widespread spec- 
ulation, especially in court and politi- 
cal circles. 

Accordiug to information that has 
reached your correspondent through a 
sure channel, Lord Salisbury remained 
away owing to the strained personal 
I relatious betweeu himself aud the pres- 
' ent king. 

Democrats Have a "Atisunder- 
standing" During Discussion 
Of the Army Bill. 

A Washington special says. The 
house Friday adopted the conference 
report upon tho army reorganization 
bill. Tho naval appropriation bill was 
finally passed and immediately after- 
wards seventy-seven private pension 

Mr. Hull, of Iowa, chairman of the 
military affairs committee, in urging 
immediate action, said the bill should 
have been a law three week ago; that 
it has been outrageously delayed in 
the congress of the United States, 
though not in the house. Mr. Hull 
appealed for the provisions designed 
to retire General Shafter as major a 
geueral, aud Genorals Lee and Wilson 
as brigadier generals, provisions which 
the house had stricken out. 

Mr. Richardson protested against 
voting to increase the list of officers 
on the retired list. 

"If that provision were out of the 
bill," interposed Mr. Cannon, of Illi- 
nois, "would the gentleman vote for 

"The report empowers the president 
to increase the standing army from 
58,000 to 100,000 men," replied Mr. 
Richardson. "If that provision were 
out also." 

"That is not a categorical response," 
observed Mr. Cannon. 

"No," replied Mr. Richardson. "I 
would never vote for the bill." (Dem- 
ocratic applause.") 

Mr. Hay, of Virginia, resented in- 
dignantly Mr. Richardson's statement 
that the report wculd give the presi- 
dent the power to increase the army 
from 58,000 to 100,000 men, and took 
the minority leader severely to task 
for refusing to join in a fight for a 
temporary army when the bill was 
originally before the house. 

The conference report was adopted 
—133 to 100. Two Democrats, Clay- 
ton, of New York, and Livingston, of 
Georgia, voted for the report. 

Mr. Bixey, of Virginia, moved to 
recommit the naval bill with instruc- 
tions to strike out the provisions for 
the increase of tho navy (two battle- 
ships and two cruisers). It was de- 
feated— 42 to 132. The bill was then 

The house then took up private pon- 
sion bills. 


Queen's Coffin Is Finally Sealed By 
Order of the King, 

A special from Cowes, Isle of Wight, 
says: The royal family took their last 
loving look at the features of the dead 
queen Friday. About 10 o'clock in the 
morning the shell was brought into 
the bedroom, where were waiting King 
Edward, Emperor William, the duke 
of Connnught, Sir James Raid and the 
royal ladies. The latter having retir- 
ed, Sir Sames Reid, with reverent 
hands, assisted by three trusted house- 
hold servants, and in the presence of 
the king, tho emperor and the duke, 
removod the body from the bed to the 

In death it was lovelier than in the 
closing days of life. Not a trace of 
the ravages of disease was visible. 
The servants having retired, Queen 
Alexandra, the prinoesses and the 
children were recalled, and with lin- 
gering steps and stifled sobs, they 
passed slowly before the white-robed 
and peaceful figure. At the foot, 
never moving, stood tho king, and 
when tho mourning crowd had passed 
there remained only the sou and grand- 
son of the dead. 

Emperor William wept even more 
bitterly than the royal ladies. Finally 
he also retired, and the king was left 
alone. Sir James Reid, beckoning to 
the servants, who were holding the 
coffin lid, asked the king's instruc- 

For a few seconds the king stood 
speechless, stricken with emotion at 
the last farewell. Then he said quick- 

"Close it finally. It muBt not be 
opened again." 

Thus the remains of England's 
greatest ruler were forever hidden 
from human view. 

Britons Get /"lore Guns. 

A special from Queenstown says: 
"Eighteen field guns of the most mod- 
ern manufacture, with their carriages 
ammunition, wagons and equipment 
have arrived here from Germany for

Ex-Secretary of War Awarded Big 
Judgment In Tennessee Court. 

A decree has boon entered in the 
United States circuit conrt at Nash- 
ville in the case of General Russell A. 
Alger versus T. B. Anderson et al, up- 
on a mandate from tho United States 
circuit court of appeals of the sixth 
district, whereby Geueral Alger is giv- 
en a personal judgment for S201.014.75. 

The litigation arose out of the pur- 
chase of several tiacts of coal and min- 
eral lands iu Franklin county, Ten- 
nessee, by A. J. Freer acting as agent 
for General Alger. It was alleged that 
the lauds were "suited" and thatrocks 
painted black were palmed off as coal. 


Congress Requested to En=

President Transmits to the Sen. 
ate a Report In Regard to 
The flatter. 

President McKinley transmitted to 
the senate Friday a report of the sec- 
retary of war inclosing the report of 
the Taft Philippine commission. The 
president says: 

"I earnestly recommend legisla- 
tion under which the governmeut 
of the islands may have authority 
to assist in their peaoeful indus- 
trial development in the direc- 
tions indicated by the secretary 
of war." 

Secretary Root's letter of transmit- 
tal is dated January 24th, addressed 
to the president, and is in par tas fol- 

"I beg leave to supplement my an- 
nual report of November 30, 1900, by 
transmitting a report made by the 
Philippine commission on that date, 
but only recently received at the war 
department. At the same time I wish 
to call attention to some conditions 
existing in the Philippine islands 
which indicate that the development 
of that country along the lines of 
peaceful industrial progress now re- 
quires the exercise of powers of civil 
government not vested in this depart- 
ment or in the United States military 
commander, but requiring a grant of 
authority from the congress. 

"The commission gives a gratify- 
ing account of the progress made in 
the pacification of the country and 
the gradual subsidence of guerrilla 
warfare. A personal letter received 
by me from Judge Taft, dated Decem- 
ber 14, 1900, says: 

" 'Since writing you about three 
thousand insurgents in Iloilo Norte 
have surrendered and 10,000 persons 
who were not well affected toward us 
in Panay have taken the oath of 
allegiance. I have already received 
two papers from natives tendering 
their allegiance to the United States 
and promising fidelity without mental 
reserve. The army is hitting small but 
hard knocks against the insurgents 
everywhere. Since the election there 
has been a great falling off in the ac- 
tivity of the insurgents in aggressive- 

" 'On the 2d of January the commis- 
sion as a body reinforced the views 
contained iu their report by the fol- 
lowing dispatch from Manila: 

" 'Root, Secretary of War, Wash- 
ington — If you approve, ask transmis- 
sion to proper senators and represent- 
atives of following: 

" 'Passage of Spooner bill at present 
session greatly needed to secure best 
result from improving conditions. Un- 
til its passage no purely central oivil 
government can be established; no 
publio franchises of any kind granted, 
and no substantial improvements pos- 
siblo. All are needed as a most im- 
portant step in complete pacification. 
Strong peace party organized with de- 
fined purpose of seouring civil gov- 
ernment under United States and rea- 
sonably expect civil government and 
relief from inevitable but annoying re- 
straints of military rule long before 
subject can be taken up by new con- 
gress. Time near at hand, in our opin- 
ion, when disturbances existing can 
hotter be suppressed by native police 
of a civil government with army as 
auxiliary force than by continuance of 
complete military control. 

" 'Sale of public lauds aud allow- 
ances for mining claims impossible un- 
til Spooner bill passed. Hundreds of 
American miners on ground awaiting

Good element in paoification, Ur- 
gently recommend amendment to 
Spooner bill so that its operation be 
not postpoued until complete suppres- 
sion of all insurrection, but only un- 
til, in president's judgment, civil gov- 
ernment may be safely established. 
Conditions rapidly improving to point

Georgia Technological School Faculty 
Shows Leniency. 

An Atlanta dispatch says: All the 
suspended Technological students will 
resume their work on the 2nd of Feb- 
ruary. The penalty imposed on the 
toxtile studeuts has been reduced from 
ninety to thirty days' suspension; that 
of the mechanical and engineering 
students remains the same. 

Although the term of suspension 
has been reduced to thirty days and 
diplomas will bo withheld for an equal 
period, the summer vacation will be 
taken as usual, and the boys com-

nrs. Nation, the Saloon Wrecker, 
Cowh:-ed By Another Female 
In Kansas. 

A street fight betweeu women, led 
one one side by Mrs. Carrie Nation, 
the saloon wrecker, with a following 
of W. C. T. U. women, aud the other 
by Mrs. John Schilling, wife of the 
manager of the saloon wrecked, back- 
ed by a dozen women who champion- 
ed the saloons, was enacted in the 
town of Enterprise, Kansas. 

As a result of the unique melee Mrs. 
Nation swore out warrants against 
Mrs. Schilling and her husband, and 
Mrs. William Bittner, charging them 
with assault, and Mrs. Boffman sworo 
out a warrant against Mrs. Nation, 
charging her with disturbing the peace. 
All were arrested, but later were re- 
leased on bond. 

During the morning, Mrs. Nation, 
in company with several W. T. C. U. 
leaders, entered a store near William 
Shook's saloon, which is still unmo- 
lested. Mrs. Nation, apparently to 
give him warning, sent for Shook. He 
complied, but before many words were 
exchanged between the two she was 
assaulted by a crowd of women, par- 
tisans of the saloons. 

A general fight between the womea 
ensued, during which a woman, heav- 
ily veiled, rained blow after blow upon 
Mrs. Nation with a horse whip. Men 
drawn to the soene aided neither 
side. Quiet was restored only when 
the police interferred. Mrs. Nation 
was badly bruised. 

All concerned, except Mrs. Nation, 
were bound over for trial. Mrs. Na- 
tion went to the house of one of her 
friends to doctor her wounds, and she 
declared, "Prepare for tomorrow." 

Much excitement prevails over the 

The case was concluded promptly. 
Mrs. Nation was found not guilty of 
disturbing the peace and was released. 
The cases of the three women arrested 
on complaint of Mrs. Nation were 
continued. Mrs. Nation declares that 
she will swear out additional warrants 
against these women, charging them 
with attempt to kill. 

At a meeting held during the day 
between local temperance workers, the 
Mothers and Sisters Aid Society was 
organized, with Mrs. C. H. Huffman 
as president. Mrs. Nation says its 
purpose is to suppress saloons by law 
if possible, but by force if necessary. 


Announcing Albert Edward as 
King of England Issued at 

A London special says: The proc- 
lamation announcing Edward VII. 
as king of Great Britain and Ireland 
and emperor of India was read in St. 
James palaoe at 9 o'clock Thursday 
morning. The king was not present. 

There was a great concourse of peo- 
ple from the commencement to the 
close. The proclamation, was read 
by William Henry Weldon, king at 
arms, since 1894, and formerly Wind- 
sor herald and was as follows: 

"Whereas, It has pleased Almighty 
God to call to his mercy our late sov- 
ereign lady, Queen Victoria, of blessed 
and glorious memory, by whose do- 
cease the imperial crown of the United 
Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland

high mighty Prince Albert Edward; 
we, therefore, lords spiritual and tem- 
poral of this realm, being here assisted 
with those of her late majesty's privy 
council, with numbers of other princi- 
pal gentlemen of quality, the lord may- 
or.aldermen and citizens of London, do 
now hereby with one voice consent of 
tongue and heart to publish and pro- 
claim that the high and mighty Prince 
Albert Edward is now by the death of 
our late sovereign of happy memory 
become our only lawful and rightful 
liege lord, Edward VII., by grace of 
God, king of the kingdom of Great 
Britain and Ireland, defender of the 
faith, Emperor of India, to whom we 
acknowledge all faith and constant 
obedience with all hearty and humble 
affection, beseeching God, by whom 
all kings and queens do reign, to bless 
the royal Prince Edward VII with 
long and happy years to reign over 

The proclamation was greeted by a 
fanfare of trumpets.

A Havas (Paris) agency dispatch 
from Shanghai says the diplomats

China executes her engagements. 
They will also demand that the death 
penalty be imposed on four Chinese

Montevallo, Ala. , Jan 31, 1901. 


The Montgomery Advertiser, io 
speaking of Mrs. Nations' out- 
break in Kansas, says: 

Mrs. Nations charges that liq- 
uors are sold iti violation of law in 
those towns, and if she is correct 
the fact only adds to the "non-un- 
derstandibility" of the situation. 

It is difficult to believe that a 
saloon furnished with rich and ex- 
pensive fixtures should be run in 
op.m defiance of law . At least it is 
difficult to understand why the law 
is not enforced and the saloons 
closed. If they were only blind 
tigers, kept in dark alleys and do. 
ing business on the sneak order, we 
might see that the authorities would 
find it a hard matter to suppress 
the traffic entirely, but the accounts 
we read from Wichita, Abilene and 
other towns do not convey that^im- 
pression. They rather lead to the 
belief that these saloons are just as 
open and public as the5 are in any 
city where the business is licensed. 

Kansas has a prohibitory law, 
but ever since its enactment in 
1883 it has been a dead letter. A 
great effort was made at first to 
prosecute all those who engaged in 
tke liquor trrffic; express companies 
were enjoined from shipping liquor 
of and kind when it was known to 
be such. But with a few except 
ional cases, nearly all prosecutions 
have been failures. 

Wichita, where Mrs. Nations first 
begun her smashing campaign 
against the saloons, never made J 
any effort to er force the law. but | 
on the other hand wholly ignored 
it by permitting two summer beer 
gardens to run open and unmolest- 
ed. The proprietors of these places 
were arrested on the first of every 
month and fined, which was noth- 
ing more than a license under au- 
other name. 

The same proceedure obtained at 
Leavenworth, the home of that bit- 
ter hater of southern people— Dan 
Anthony, editor of the Times. 
Atchison followed suit, and Kan- 
sas City, Kansas, (old Wyandotte) 
seemed to vie with its neighbor 
across the line as to which could 
have the greater number of saloons. 
One of there "joints" or saloons 
was operated for a long time in a 
basement in Topeka almost under 
the walls ot the capital building. 

The M urray low always has been 
and always will be a dead letter in 
Kausas, for the simple reason that 
a large majority of the people con- 
sider it obnoxious, and just so 
long as it remains upon the statute 
books of the State, jest so long will 
it offer opportunity to such women 
a. Mrs. Nations who have a fondness 
for sensation. 

The Sentinel does not approve of 
the methods adopted by Mrs. Na- 
tions, neither does it approve of the 

action of the people of that State 
in not either enforcing a law, or 
eliminating it from the statutes of 
the State. 

We have in mind one instance 
wherein some thirty odd counts 
were found against one man for 
selling liquor in the Sunflower Stale, 
and when convicted the presiding 
judge gave the culprit the maxi. 
mum ffne and sentence or. each 
count. His fines amounted to more 
than $40,000 and impris.onmeut for 
over 300 years. Thus proving con- 
clusively that the judiciary were 
and ate prejudiced against the law. 
The liquor dealer remained in jail 
about sixty days, when he was 
turned loose by the county commis- 
ioners, to save the county the ex- 
pense of feeding him. 

And while, as the Advertiser says 
"the performances of Mrs. Nations 
and the impugnity with which her 
lawlessness is carried on is beyond 
understanding," we might add that 
the brazenness of those men who 
carry on an unlawful business, and 
permitted to do so by people who 
have behind them a law upon which 
to rely if they wish, is also beyond 


Does Columbiana want the 
Brunswick and Birmingham Rail- 
road? If she does, novv is the time 
for her citizens to do something, if 
they don't wake up Montevallo may 
get it. The people of this end of 
the county should not let the lower 
portion get all of the benefit of the 
new enterprises. — People's AJvo 

The Advocate man seems very 
much exercised for fear we may get 
the B. & B. , but if his mind is in 
that condition now what will it be 
when the road is built through this 
place, and it is coming sure as fate. 
So the A dvocate man need not have 
his slumber disturbed unless it be 
by the rumble of the cars and shriek 
of locomotives passing over the 
Brunswick & Birmingham by 
way of Montevallo. 



lican combustibles ever since he 
entered Congress, who is support- 
ing the Burleigh re apportionment 
bill which reduces the represents 
tion of no state, and which is being 
strongly supported in the House 
and may knock out the committee 
bill. Acting speaker Dalzell had a 
hard time getting Hopkins and 
Littlefield to order, while the House 
seemed really to enjoy the wrang. 
ling — Southern Home. 

The People' Advocate seems to 
think that the Constitutional con- 
vention is to be made up principally 
of tricksters. We are glad that 
comparatively few people have so 
small opinion of their fellow men as 
does the Advocate. 

Tho W. C T. U. of Kansas, has 
raised $100 with which to purchase 
a gold medal for Mrs. Nations. 
But she says she won't have it, and 
when a won't she won't unless she 
changes her mind.

The Brunswick & Birmingham 
road is headed for the Montevallo 
coal fields, and there is but one 
practical way of reaching them and 
that is by the way of Montevallo. 

As tho cow is to be a thing of 
beauty and a joy forever upon our 
streets, we think the loafers should 
be given the job of milking them. 
No milkee, no loafee. 

A petition is being circulated in 
Beat 4, this county, asking the 
legislature to enact a 'aw prohibit- 
ing stock frctn running at large in 
the beat. 

All the ordinances posted will go 
into effect tomorrow morning, and 
then Montevallo will be a full-fledg- 
ed incorporated town. 


The death of Verdi in Italy 
Saturday has taken from the 
sical world one of the greatest, if 
not thegreatest, musical composer 
ever known. 

He lived iu a land of music, love 
and flowers, and it is not to be won- 
dered at that his beautiful song — 
'I Have Sighed to Rest Me," is so 
full of rich pathos, and people who 
love thu beautiful harmonies of "II 
Trovatore," will never forget the 
great composer who brought out 
such entrancing music to bless

location of sucli enterprises. Neither 
the Church or State can afford to con- 
gregate its young people where such a 
habit is lacking in the citizenship. The 
process of reasoning on this subject is 
very direct and conclusive. Without 
the services of the Church, society 
quickly relapses into moral chaos. The 
public sentiment buiided by the Church 
is the liasis of all permanent security 
lor persons and property. You could 
not do business in Montevallo very long 
without the moral support given the of- 
ficers of the law. Without the influence 
of these churches the reijii of law and 
order would s >on end. To sustain the 
churches is but self-protection. Com- 
mercial interests compel you. But this 
is the ,'ow r and selfish view. There is 
a higher one. The Lord organized the 
Church and appointed its services for 
the salvation of mankind. We have al- 
ready said you can't be accredited;! 
g ind citizen if von fail to attend reg- 
ularlv the services of l he sanctuary. 

Without hesitation it is affirmed that 
yon can't live the religions life unless 
you are punctual in attendance upon all 
Church services. A writer has said the 
whole truth in the follo-ving: 'All, of 
every age and station, stand in need oi 
the means of grace which it alone sup- 
plies." For there is no 
substitute. You must attend or die 
spiritually. At. another time special 
matters may be named — WellwKhei.

Capt. and Mrs H. C Reynolds re- 
turned last Saturday from Brunswick, 
Ga., where Captain had been attending 
the convention held in the interest of 
the Brunswick & Birmingham railroad. 
They are enthusiastic over the social 
features of the visit, and Captain Rey- 
nolds is also enthusiastic over the pros- 
pect of Montevallo securing the road. 
Mrs. Reynolds was entertained by Mrs. 
Gould who is furnishing the money 
to build tliH road. President Machein 
diove the first spike, a silver one, 
and to Mis. Reynolds, who was the 
only lady representative present at the 
convention, was accorded the honor of 
driving the second spike, and we will 
warrant the act was done with the in- 
junction — "on to Montevallo " 

Married in Calera on the 27th inst, 
by the Rev. Sinnott, D. D. Ruddy and 
Mrs. Mary Whatley. 

The comfortable home of Mrs. S. E. 
Nabors, last Saturday night, was the 
scene of a happy gathering of Monte- 
vallo people. The Misses Bush, Evans, 
Austill, Wilson, Callins, Fitts and Har- 
well had invited a number of friends to 
join them in a uiarshn.allow roast. 

As the guests arrived they were di- 
rected to rooms on the second floor 
by a servant where wraps were disposr- 
ed of, after which,- descending to the 
parlors, they were greeted by the "sev- 
en spinsters" (so the invitations read). 
They were gowned in black, the sombre 
shade being relieved only by a large 
white collarette, and the powdered 
coiffures — Mar ha Washington style 
They reminded one of old-fashioned 
daguerreotypes; or one might have been 
pardoned for thinking that a number 
of beautiful portraits had stepped down 
from their frames in some rare collec- 
tion in an art gallery of Colonial times 
The soft, mellow light from wax tapers 
grouped in sevens, stole its way thro' 1 
out the rooms leaving an impression 
with' the onlooker that he saw as in a 

Eur-ly in the evening each guest was 
presented with a loll upon the guard of 
which was written a name, with the 
injunction to go; find your parter. The 
foils had no more dangerous mission 
than to stab maishnia Hows and they 
were used most i ti'ecti vely in that di- 
rection. Fruit punch, and chocolate 
were served. The chocolate room was 
especially artistic in decorations, the 
evergreens arrange I in a manner that 
repiesented either a grotto wherein fair 
ies only might tread, or a beautitul dell 
through svme woodland. 

It is generally supposed that spin- 
sters are a class ol individuals who have 
soured on tile world, are' cross and 
given to crabbediiess, but the "seven 
spinsters" who entertained at Mrs. Na- 
bors are just tiie opposite of all these 
characteristics, and they gave their 
friends a : most delightful evening;

The Young Set. 

About the 1st of January, the "young' 
er set" of Montevallo's boys organized 
a "Book Club" for the purpose of men- 
tal and social culture. They afterwards 
decided to invite the girls to join them, 
and changed the name to the "Monte- 
vallo Literary Society" — electidg otli- 
cers as follows : James Rhodes, Pres- 
ident; Howison Fancher, Vice-Pres- 
ident ; Georue Canterberry, Secretary; 
Harry Shivers, Treasurer; Woodfin 
Shivers, Book Keeper. 

Mrs. Shivers yerv kindly donated a 
room for their use as a club room, and 
others donated Ijooks and magazines; 
and the pleasure which these young 
people derive from tjiis little encourage- 
ment is unbounded.

Result of 

a Prompt Reply. — Two 
from Mrs. Watson, Pub- 
lished by Special Permission. — 
For Women's Eyes Only. 

March 15, 1899. 

To MRS. PINKHAM, Lynn, Mass. : 

" IJfar Madam : — I am suffering from inflammation of the 
ovaries and womb, and have been for eighteen months. I have a 
continual pain and soreness in my back and side. I am only free 
from pain when lying down, or sitting in an easy chair. When 
I stand I suffer with severe pain in my side and back. I be- 
lieve my troubles were caused by over work and lifting some years 

"Life is a drag to me, and I sometimes feel like giving up over 
being a well woman ; have become careless and unconcerned about 
everything. I am in bed now. I have had several doctors, but thoy 
did me but little good. 

"Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound has been recommended 
to me by a friend, and I have made up my mind to give it a 
fair trial. 

" I write this letter with the hope of hearing from you in regard 
to my case." — Mks. S. J. Watson, Hampton, Va. 

November 27, 1899. 

" Dear Mrs. Pin kham : — I feel it my duty to acknowledge tc 
you the benefit that your advice and Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable 
Compound have done for me. 

" I had been suffering with female troubles for some time, could 
walk but a short distance, had temble bearing down pains in lower 
part of my bowels, backache, and pain in ovary. I used your medicine 
for four months and was so much better that I could walk three times 
the distance that I could before. 

"I am to-day in better health than I have been for more than 
two years, and I know it is all due to Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable 

" I recommend your advice and medicine to all women who suffer." 
— Mrs. S. J. Watson, Hampton, Va.

In our kitchen we get exactly

Dwarf Cattle of Celebes Arc No I.anjot 
Tban Ordinary Sheep. 
Celebes has the distinction of being 
the home of the smallest living repre- 
sentative of the wild cattle, or, in- 
deed, of the wild cattle of any period 
of the earth's history, for no group 
appears to bo known to science. An 
idea of three extremely diminutive pro- 
portions of the anoa, or sapi-utan, as 
the animal in question is respectively 
called by the inhabitants of Celebe3 
and the Malays, may be gained when 
it is stated that Its height at the shoul- 
der Is only about 3 feet 8 inches, 
whereas that of the great Indian wild 
ox, or guar, is at least 6 feet 4 inches, 
and may, according to some writers, 
roach as much as 7 foet. In fact, the 
anoa is really not much, if at all, 
larger than a well-grown South Down 
sheep and scarcely exceeds In this re- 
epect the little domesticated Bramini 
cattle shown a few years ago at the 
Indian exhibition held at Earl's Court. 
The anoa has many of the characters 
of the large Indian buffalo, but its 
horns are relatively shorter, less 
curved and moro upright. In this, as 
well t j in certain other respects, it 
is more like the young than the adult 
of the last-named species, and as 
young animals frequently are gradual- 
ly lost a3 maturity is approached it 
would be a natural supposition that 
the anoa is a primitive type of buffalo. 

Wallta with a Broken Baok. 

A case that Is attracting attention in 
the surgical world is that of Michael 
Kepler of Raveno, Pa., who is suffer- 
ing from a broken back. Five year* 
ago ho fell and sustained the injury. 
The local doctors did not give him 
much, relief, and after two years he 
went to Blassberg. Since then he has 
undergone fourteen operations. He 
was discharged from several hospitals 
as incurable and was told to prepare 
for the end. Kepler never became dis- 
couraged, and about a year ago he 
commenced to gain strength and for 
several months he has beon able to 
walk. Hia health is excellent, but the 
pcJn in his back is intsnse. The bone 
1b decaying, and a large amount has 
been cut away. He> is one of the most 
jovial, good natured young men In 
the town. He has gone to Kane for 
another operation. 


Gems Thrown Away by an Absent- 
Minded Dealer. 

"Have you got any of those dia- 
monds?" is the question of the hour 
in Birmingham. Some 800 precious 
stones havs been shared out by lucky 
prospectors in Vlttoria street, and the 
search still continues, says the London 
Express. It happened in this wia«: 
In a fit of abstraction John Davis, 
member of a firm of diamond mer- 
chants, while walking down Vlttoria 
street an a recent morning, pulled an 
old envelope out of his pocket and 
commenced to tear it up. When he 
roaohed the last section the terrible 
fact dawned upon him that it was the 
envelope In which were some 1,600 
small diamonds, valued at £100, and 
that he had been sowing these broad- 
cast over a public thoroughfare. The 
news spread with lightning-like rapid- 
ity. Shopkeepers locked up and oame 
to the more lucrative occupation of 
picking up diamonds, wbile for a mllo 
around an errand boy at his ordinary 
work was a phenomenon. Such a 
scraping of the street with knives and 
sticks had never been seen. As it 
happened, most of the lost stones went 
down the cellar gratings of a Jeweler's 
shop. Ingenious youths fished for 
them with a piece of soap attached to 
a stick and reeled in three prizes at a 
time. Others sat in the gutter sort- 
ing an anxiously guarded handful of 
dirt. Still the crowd grew. At one 
period over 1.500 lads were to be seen 
hard at work. Prom noon to seven 
o'olock the street was nearly blocked. 
When night fell candles, lamps and 
lanterns were brought to aid the Inde- 
fatigable hunters for treasure trove, 
and th« scene presented could only 
have been done Justice by Hogarth. 
About half the diamonds have found 
their way back to their rightful owner. 
Some were sold to a shopkeeper and 
the rest, like the graves of a house- 
hold, are scattered far and wide. Dia- 
mond pins will shortly be fashionable 
In Birmingham. 


Baaeball Popular There, Dua to Effort 
of Resident Americana* 

Baseball is becoming popular in 
Australia, says the London Mall, and 
possibly some day Australians will be 
as eminent in this sport as they ore at 
present on th* cricket field. It is large- 
ly owing to the efforts of the many 
Americans Bettled in the antipodes 
that the game is becoming rapidly ac- 
climated. Recently began th# first se- 
ries of inter-colonial baseball matches, 
the contestants being Victoria and 
New South Wales, both of which colo- 
nies possess organized baseball asso- 
ciations. The games were played in 
Sydney and the home nine won two 
out of three. Tho New South Wales 
side included Victor Trumper, M. A. 
Noble and J. J. Kelly, members of the 
l*ust Australian cricket team to visit 
England, and anion*; the Victorians 
was another member of that team, 
Frank Laver. Donnan of the 1898 
eleven was selected as the emergency 
player of New South Wales. Local 
Americans sfty that wonderful profi- 
ciency was displayed, although as yet 
some of the finer points of the game 
remain to be learned.

Citizens of Pratt City Arranging 
for Cheaper Insurance. 


Will Bore for Oil— $ 15,000 School 
Building to Be Erectel-- 
Other State News, 

Over $C,000 for Hillman Hospital. 

The mass meeting at the First 
Methodist church in Birmingham Sun- 
day night, held in the interest of the 
Hillman Hospital building fund, was 
a pronounced success. The ladies in 
icharge of this worthy institution call 
for $25,000 in order that they may go 
forward with the work of erecting the 
new building, the plans of which have 
t>een adopted, aDd at the meeting the 
.sum of $6162.44 was raised toward the 
needed fund. 

The pastors of the various ohurches 
of Birmingham suspended their regu- 
Jar Sunday evening services so that 
:all the congregations might unite in 
:tnass meeting. The Rev. John G. 
Murray, rector of the Church of the 
Advent, acted as chairman, and 
sitting on the pulpit platform with 
him were the Rev. Dr. J, P. McFer- 
rin, pastor of the First Methodist 
church ; the Rev. L. S. Handley, pas- 
tor of the Central Presbyterian 
church, and the Rev. Dr. D. B. Gray, 
pastor of the First Baptist church. 

Pratt City AVants Cheaper Insurance. 

With the water works in successful 
operation and an efficient fire depart- 
ment property values have increaeed in 
Pratt City.and cheaper insurance rates 
have been looked for, the rates in 
some oases being as high as 8$ cents. 
Many of the citizens are dissatisfied 
and are agitating the question of can- 
celing their policies and devising a 
plan for mutual protection. The one 
most likely to be adopted will be the 
appointment of an insurance commis- 
sioner who, with the assistance of an 
advisory board, will district and rate 
the different risks of the city, each 
insured paying into the treasury his 
premiums, which shall be placed un- 
der bond in some bank or trust com- 
pany for the purpose of paying losses; 
any profits accruing therefrom to be 
applied to improving the fire depart- 
ment. It is thonght with the city's 
excellent water works and fire depart- 
ment this will afford ample protection 
and the needed relief. 

$15,000 School Building Will he 

Jasper is to have a fifteen thousand 
dollar school building in the near fu- 
ture. The city authorities held a 
meeting one night last week and Al- 
dermen White and Hughs, who had 
been appointed to select a site for the 
new building, reported that after hav- 
ing investigated the matter thor- 
oughly they had decided upon the loca- 
tion on which the old school stood. 

Montgomery Presbyterians. 
The Pulpit of the First Presbyterian 
church of Montgomery, whioh seems 
to have been vacant for several 
months, is about to be filled by the 
appointment of a young Georgian. It 
is understood that the Rev. W. L. 
Lingle, of Dalton, will be.called to the 
church in Montgomery. 

New Bank at Stevenson. 
S. S. Broadus, cashier of the Mer- 
chants' Bank at Scottsboro, has com- 
pleted arrangements for the establish- 
ment of his seventh banking institu- 
tion in north Alabama. The new 
bank is located at Stevenson, 
The banks under his per- 
sonal control are at Tuscumbia, Flor- 
ence, Russellville, Scottsboro, Moul- 
ton, Courtland and Stevenson, which 
makes the most completo string of 
bunking institutions in the state.

Chief Austin Makes Two Kaids. 

At 11 o'clock Sunday night a squad 
of policemen, headed by Chief Austin, 
paid a visit to the Leisure Hours 
Reading Club, Birmingham, over the 
Dude saloon, at the oorner of Seoond 
avenue and Twentieth street, as it 
was believed gambling was oarried on 
there. No criminating evidence was 
found but the clubmen present-- 
Humphries, Freeman, Butterfield and 
Griffith, were arrested on the charge 
of vagrancy, and were held in the 
sum of $50 each to appear before 
Judge Feagin. 

From the Leisure Hours place 
Chief Austin and Captain Weir raided 
a crap club over Damon & Lee's 
livery stable and arrested twelve 
negroes. Pistols, bowie knives, 
rundlets of whiskey and several cases 
of beer were also secured. 

"Will Bore for Oil. 

The Commercial Club of Birming- 
ham Friday afternoon authorized the 
president to appoint a committee to 
take up the question of prospecting for 
petroleum, and in accordance with a 
resolution to that effect President 
Kettig appointed a committee consist- 
ing of Maj. F. Y. Anderson, W. N. 
Malone and B. Steiner. It is also 
stated that a syndicate is now being 
formed to prospect for oils, Over half 
the money necessary to purchase the 
machinery and to pay all of the ex- 
penses connected with the tests to be 
made has been subscribed, and an ex- 
pert engaged to oonduct the investiga- 
tion. The location of the proposed 
wells has been selected, and work is to 
begin at once. 

Pastors' Union- Will Fight Pool Bill 
The Pastors' Union, of Birming- 
ham, at its meeting Monday morning, 
took up the pool-selling bill which 
has been introduced in the lower 
house of the General Assembly giving 
the Alabama Fair Association the 
right to sell pools on horse races 
during its annual fairs, and has called 
a mass meeting to protest against the 
measure. It is understood that 
vigorous steps are being taken to fight 
the bill and the purpose of the mass 
meeting will merely be to give ex- 
pression to the sentiment against it. 

Li. & N. Traill 25 Miles Long. 

The Louisville & Nashville Railroad 
Company is now moving two thous- 
and carloads of rook phosphate from 
Mt. Pleasant, Tenn., to Pensacola, 
and all over its own lines direct for 
shipment to Cuba. This is perhaps 
the largest single shipment of any 
commodity in the long record of 
southern railroads, and the magnitude 
of the Louisville & Nashville Compa- 
ny's undertaking may be realized in 
part when it is known that the com- 
pany's contract calls for the delivery 
at Pensacola of about two hundred 
cars of phosphate a day. That means 
in fact twelve solid trains of seventeen 
cars eaoh going to Pensacola every 
day ladened with phosphate alone. 

Tribute to Victoria. 

At the Friday night services at 
Temple Emanuel, in Birmingham, the 
congregation paid tribute to the 
memory of Queen Victoria by repeat- 
ing the Kaddish prayer standing. 
This prayer is in memory of the dead 
and is repeated by murmers at each 
service for the period of one year. 
Dr. Samuel Ullman referred most 
eloquently to the dead sovereign, 
whom he said had done much during 
her liberal reign for the Jews. 

Business is in fine shape in Florence,

Country Produce. 

The country produce market was 
fairly active in Birmingham last 
week. Eggs, which were quoted at 
13c on Friday, have advanced to 14c. 
Leading commission merohants who 
had agreed on 14c were complaining 
fiercely Saturday afternoon that the 
price had baen cut by certain of their 

rivals to Vd x o. The majority of the 
houses maintained the (ixed quotation, 
und lower offers were promptly re- 


Sensational Incident of the 
riaritime Congress. 


Governor Hakes Denial and Uses 
Some Forcible Adjectives In 
Regard to flatter. 

The National Maritime convention 
assembled in Brunswick Thursday 
morning for the second day of its de- 
liberations. Permanent organization 
of the convention was effected by the 
election of the following officers: 

President— A. K. Miller, New Or- 

Vice President — C. D. Ogg, Bruns- 
wick, Ga. 

Treasurer — E. P. Wilson, Cincin- 

Secretary — F. B. Thurber, New 

A vic» president was named from 
each state represented. 

Maine — Harold S. Sewall. 

New York — Lewis Nixon. 

Pennsylvania — Theo C. Searich. 

Virginia— W. R. Trigg. 

South Carolina — C. C. Townsend. 

Georgia — D. G. Purse. 

Florida— Sewell C. Cobb. 

Colorado— W. W. Bates. 

After the election of officers the 
congress adjourned. 

The congress unanimously passed 
Edmund Brobston, s resolution favor- 
ing a ship subsidy. 

Just before adjournment a sensa- 
tional speech was made by Harold S. 
Sewall, son of Arthur Sewall, of Bath, 
Me., in which he denounced the al- 
leged utterances of Governor Candler 
to the effect that the convention was 
being held in the interest of the ship 
subsidy bill. 

He said they (the visitors) came to 
the state of Georgia on the invitation 
of Governor Candler, who was not on 
hand to give them a hand of welcome, 
but instead had denounced the aotion 
of a member of the ooiigress because 
of his support of a resolution which 
was passed unanimously by that body 
and had characterized his guests as 
puppets of Mark Hanna. 

His utterances in regard to the gov- 
ernor were very severe. 

He questioned his sincerity in ex- 
tending the invitation to them. 

He also paid a tribute to the south 
for its loyalty to the union. He said 
the old sectional feeling had disap- 
peared when young Bagley, of North 
Carolina, was the first to lose his life 
in defense of the flag, and when Hob- 
son sunk the Merrimac. He said the 
first measure looking to the protection 
of American shipping was advocated 
by that illustrious southern statesman 
and the father of Democraoy. Thomas 
Jefferson, and the subsidy bill in the 
United States was by Polk, of Tennes- 
see, and that southerners instead of 
departing from the teaching of their 
fathers by advocating protection for 
ships and ship building interests were 
but returning to traditions that had 
their origin with southern statesmen 
and southern patriots. 


The interview referred to in Mr. Se- 
wall's speeoh was one which appeared 
in an Atlanta afternoon paper of Wed- 
nesday, and which Governor Candler 
chanced to see for the first time Thurs- 
day morning when he walked into At- 
torney General Terrell's office on some 
official business. He was shown the 
article and read it very carefully. He 
expressed surpiise at the interview, 
and what he said with reference to the 
alleged interview and the interviewer 
was not spoken for publication. The 
substance of his remarks, however, 
was that the interview was a fake pure 
aud simple, that he had positively re- 
fused to talk on the subject to any 
newspaper man, etc. His indignation 
was freely punctuated with expressive 
adjective s. 

When the governor was told by a 
reporter that Mr. Sewall had de- 
nounced him for the sentiments ex- 
pressed in the alleged interview, the 
governor's first reply was: 

"It makes but d — d little difference 
to me what Mr. Sewall thinks about 
me or about what I said." 

"But did you say it?" was asked. 

"No, I didn't anrt you know I didn't. 
I knew nothing about the interview. 
You yourself heard all that I had to 
say about that convention. That in- 
terview was a fake, pure and simple. 

"But understand me, I don't care a 
a d- - what they think about it." 

"Why didn't you attend the conven- 

"Because I had official business to 
attend to in Atlanta, and so wired 

The governor would havo nothing 
movo to nay about tho matter, adher- 
ing strictly to his resolution not to 
discuss tho object of the convention 
in any way. 


Is Promised By Democrats In 
Congress Over the Ship 
Subsidy Measure. 

A Washington speoial says: — The 
Demooratio members of the senate 
have determined to continue the fight 
on the Hanna ship subsidy bill. 

This was decided in caucus held 
Thursday afternoon. Senator Jones 
of Arkansas, leader of the minority, 
will make a statement to the senate, 
putting the Republicans on notice 
that the shipping bill must be dis- 
cussed fully and that the minority 
considers it a crude measure and one 
of far less importance than the Nicar- 
agua canal bill, the revenue reduction 
bill, or the appropriation bills, and 
that the minority will not submit to 
an early vote on the shipping bill. 

Senator Jones will lay down an ulti- 
matum to the Republicans that the 
Democrats will insist on a considera- 
tion of the canal and appropriation 
bills ahead of a vote being taken on 
the shipping bill and that if the Re- 
publican attempt to keep the shipping 
bill before the senate and delay action 
on the appropriation bills they must as- 
sume the responsibility and if an extra 
session has to be called it wilt be the 
result of the Republicans attempting 
to force the subsidy bill to passage 
over other necessary legislation. • 

This decision of the Democrats 
amounts to an ultimatum to the Re- 
publicans, and if the policy decided 
upon is adhered to it means that the 
shipping bill cannot pass at this ses- 
sion and that an extra session of con- 
gress will be a certainty. 

The Democrats disolaim any inten- 
tion of a filibuster. They insist, how- 
ever, that the bill must be properly 
debated and they argue that as there 
have been only three or four speeches 
so far, it has not been properly de- 
bated by any means. The Democrats 
state that no less than ten or a dozen 
set speeches against the bill are sched- 
uled. Each of these speeches will 
practically consume a senate working 

If tho advocates of the measure 
insist upon night sessions, they must, 
the Demoerats say, furnish the neces- 
sary quorums, for at each session there 
will be on hand just enough Democrats 
to insist upon a quorum being present 
for the transaction of this business. 

Many of the best prophets belUve 
that the Republican supporter* of the 
measure will yield to the pressure and 
go to pieces long before the Democrats 
who oppose it show any sign of weak- 


Crew of Eighteen Saved From Watery 
Grave By Passing Steamer. 

The German steamer Barcelon, which 
arrived at New York Thursday from 
Hamburg, via Halifax, N. S. , brought 
into po,rt the captain and fourteen sea- 
men of the Russian bark Cuba, which 
was abandoned at sea January 18th in 
latitude 40.30, longitude 18.10, in a 
dismasted and water-logged condition. 

Captain Bohn, of the Barcelona, re- 
ports that at midnight of January 17th, 
a glare of light was sighted which at 
first was thought to be a ship on fire. 
The Barcelona headed for the light 
and on approaching nearer two huge 
flares were seen from a vessel in dis- 
tress. Passing close by the craft, 
Captain Bohn, with his night glass, 
made out that she was dismasted and 
waterlogged and the people on the 
wreck were waving and gesticulating 

At times hoarse shouts oould be 
heard, and finally cries of "Help; we 
are sinkingl" were made out. There 
was a high sea running, but it was de- 
cided to make the attempt to resoue 
the shipwrecked craw. 

First officer A. Lavoni and a boat's 
crew of five men managed to lower a 
life-boat and get to the side of the 
steamer. After an exceedingly hard 
pull the boat was successfully brought 
under the lee of the wreck, and after 
a severe struggle all of the men, fif- 
teen in number, were taken into the 
boat and to the steamer. 

Appointments By Governor. 

Governor Candler, of Georgia, made 
two important appointments Thursday. 
Colonel George Gilmore of Washing- 
ton county, is made a member of the 
board of trustees of the Experiment 
station. Dr. J. Frank Harris, of 
Thomas county, is made a member of 
the electic board of medical examiners. 


Imitators of Saloon Wrecker fiet In 
Their Work In Nebraska Town. 
Fifteen or twenty imitators of Mrs. 
Nation got in their work Friday af- 
ternoon at Sioux City, Neb., a suburb 
of Sioux City, Iowa, just across the 
Missouri river. Some women accom- 
panied by tho marsbal of the town, 
and a member of the city council, 
marched double tile down the street 
to John Peyson's joint. The place 
was locked and the marshal kicked in 
the front door wheroupon all the wo- 
men siit about currying out the furni- 
ture and everything they could lay 
hands on, depositing it in the street. 
No whisky was found, 


Body of Dead Ruler Re- 
moved From Cowes. 


Amid Roll of Six-Pounders Came 
Strains of Chopin's and Bee- 
thoven's Funeral Marches. 

The body of Queen Victoria was 
borne Friday afternoon from its quiet 
resting place in Osborne house to 
Portsmouth, the heart of England's 
navy. The half hundred fighting 
ships fired their broadsides and min- 
ute guns and over the still waters, be- 
tween the roll of the six-pounders, 
came strains of Chopin and Beethoven's 
funeral marches. The crews stood 
silently along the decks, and the 
flags, drooped half way down the 

Half a million of the late Queen 
Victoria's devoted subjects lining the 
shores of the Solent witnessed a ma- 
jestic and an awe-inspiring pageant 
and bade a last farewell to their be- 
loved ruler. All who witnessed the 
function testify to the profound emo- 
tion it inspired and agree th^t the 
spectacle could not have been sur- 
passed for splendor and solemn effect. 

The dominant note in the whole 
scene was its grand simplicity, and, so 
far as human utterance was concerned, 
its silence. The sad procession glided 
along in beautiful order and precision 
as though moved by some hidden pow- 
er. No incident of any kind occurred 
to mar its stately beauty. The weath- 
er was traditional "queen's weather," 
The "queen of the seas," was carried 
across the waters to the accompani- 
ment of minute guns and military 
music — a picture which will live in 

The ceremony, consisting in remov- 
ing the remains from Osborne to the 
pier at Cowes was soarcely less in- 
teresting than the naval function. 

The body was reverently borne to 
the royal yacht Alberta by eight stal- 
wart seamen. 

There have been more magnifioent 
pageants than that escorting the body 
of Queen Victoria from the house 
where she died to the royal yacht, but 
never has there been witnessed in re- 
cent world history a procession more 
remarkable in its combiuation of pomp 
and splendor with grief and humility. 

Three special trains took down the 
members of the house of lords and the 
house of commons, the diplomats and 
other officials and the correspondents 
from the Victoria station to Ports- 
mouth in the early morning. 

The fleet stretched from Portsmouth 
to Cowes, the turrets of Osborne 
standing above the purple hills. 

The pathway between the warships 
was a quarter of a mile wide avenue of 
clear water. Queen's weather came at 
noon in a burst of sunshine. 

Shortly before 3 o'clock a puff of 
smoke broke from the Majestic's side 
and a second later a report cracked 
over the harbor announcing the start- 
ing of the Alberta from Trinity pier. 
From ship to ship the salute was 
passed down the line. Each vessel of 
the fleet was firing minute guns. They 
all employed their short side batteries, 
so on the channel sides were silhou- 
ettes of hulls, spars aud iron work, 
before the backgrounds of dense, gray 
smoke. The sound was that of a great 

Tlie band of each ship took up the 
funeral march when the Alberta came 
abreast of her, and the spectators on 
all the other craft took off their hats. 
So, with all eyes focussed on the tiny- 
looking, purple bier, the remains of 
Queen Victoria we:e carried by. 

Following the Alberta trailed along

berta carrying the royal mourners. Em- 
peror William's yacth, Hohenzollern, 
large as a warship, and spotless white; 
the Osborne, the admiralty yacht En- 
chantress and a little Trinity house 

Gradually the din of the minute 
guns lessened as the batteries of ship 
after ship ceased firing, while the fun- 
eral parade swept around the end of 
the line and into the entrance of Ports- 
mouth harbor. 

When the Alberta entered with the 
minute guns in the forts sounding, 
the bells of all the churches in the 
city tolling, the ancient frigate Victory 
moored tbere, iired a salute of muzzle 
loaders. The Alberta was moored at 
4:40 p. m. for the night. 

The crowd in Portsmouth was esti- 
mated at 100,000. Every town along 
the channel contributed its quota and 
the railway companies were helpless 
before the rush of people going home 
after the parade. Thousands crawled 
into the stations aud literally fought 
their way into tl e trains. The special 
cars were at their mercy. 

Foreign officers, diplomats and mem- 
bers of parliament mixed in tho rush 
and took tbeir chances with the mob. 
The cars going toward London were 
packed to suffocation by all classes of 


Resolution of brunswick Maritime 
Congress Presented In 
The Senate. 

A Washington special says: Senator 
Hanna presented to the senate Friday 
the resolutions adopted by the Bruns- 
wick maritime congress in advocacy of 
government aid to the merchant ma- 
rine, and, in the few words he said in 
presenting the paper, showed that he 
construed it an endorsement of tha 
pending subsidy bill, and that he re- 
garded it in the nature of a rebuke to 
the senators from Georgia and other 
southern states, who are opposing his 
pet measure. 

Some of Senator Clay's friends in 
the senate were inclined to joke with 
him about this action at Brunswick, 
and he was asked if it would make any 
difference in the vote he intended to 

"Not in the last," said the Georgia 
senator, whose speech against the 
measured was the opening gun of the 
opposition's fight. "I know," he con- 
tinued, "that this action, if it is meant 
as an indorsement to the subsidy bill, 
does not represent the sentiments of 
the people of Georgia. I doubt if 1 
per cent of the people favor this direct 
approprialion to the already wealthy 
ship owners. 

"I know that Senator Bacon and all 
of the members of the house delega- 
tion are opposed to the bill, and that 
in this opposition they and I represent 
the feeling of the people of the state. 
Certainly we represent the feeling of 
practically all of the democrats, net 
only in Georgia, but throughout the 

"Now, I have nothing at all to say 
in criticism of the very excellent gen- 
tlemen who took part in the proceed- 
ings of that congress at Brunswick, 
but of course, everybody recognizes 
the real influences which brought it 
about and, in a measure, controlled its 
motions. It might perhaps be unchar- 
itable to say that it was a Hanna con- 
vention, but the inspiration certainly 
came from the men who in this partic- 
ular fight Mr. Hanna represents. 

"Of course there can be no criticism 
of the citizens of Brunswick for hold- 
ing the conference and entertaining 
the delegates, for every city likes to 
have conventions and congresses of all 
kinds, and the business men of Bruns- 
wick contributed to give these visit- 
ing delegates as good a time as they do 
all visitors within their gates. As for 
the congress itself, however, it certain- 
ly represented an infinite small 
amount of southern sentiment, if it 
represented any at all." 


Brobston Explains Authorship of His 
Ship Subsidy Resolution. 

During the session of the maritime 
congress at Brunswick, Ga. , Friday, 
Mr. Brobston, on a question of per- 
sonal privilege, stated that he had 
been informed that it was intended to 
make an effort to injure him before 
the public by printing a photograph 
of his resolution, by comparison with 
handwriting of F. B. Thurber, to 
make it appear that Thurber was the 
man who wrote tho Brobston ship 
subsidy resolution. 

Mr. Brobston declared the resolu- 
tion was written at a conference the 
night before with three Brunswiok 
board of trade members participating 
and acquiescing and that Mr. Thurber 
simply copied it by request of the con- 


President Castro, of Venezuela Shows 
Hate For Americans. 

Advices from Port of Spain, Trini- 
dad, state that the Venezuelan gov- 
ernment continues to maintain a defi- 
ant attitude toward the United States* 
The report is now circulated that 
President Castro, having troops at his 
disposal in the eastern province since 
his victory there over the insurgents, 
will send a regiment to dispossess tho 
Americans at Pitch lake. The com- 
pany will resist, but no doubt it will 
be ousted if the threatened attempt is 

Mr. Loomis, the United States min-

but he is met in an unfriendly spirit 
by the government of Venezuela.

Montevallo, Ala. , Feb. 7, 1901. 


Governor Samford recently reap, 
pointed Messrs. Bouldin, Moody, 
Dortch, and Plowman on the Board 
cf Trustees of the Girl's Industrial 
School. There was no opposition 
to the first three named, but Mr. 
Plowman was turned down by the 
Senate. Monday Governor Sam- 
ford withdrew the four names. 

The Montevallo school land scan- 
dal is said to be the cause of Mr. 
Plowman's failure to pass the Sen- 

The governor sent in the same 
appointments Tuesday, except Mr. 
Plowman, the name of Hon. J. B. 
Graham, of Talladega, being sub- 
stituted and the appointments were 
immediately confirmed. 

Over in Hopkins county, Ky., 
says the Sheffield Reaper, the miner 
and mine operators were working 
harmoniously and prosperously, but 
were paying nothing toward the 
keep of the walking delegates of the 
United Mine Workers, so the dele- 
gates appeared upon the scene and 
organized a small body, after which 
they started for other mines, and 
when warned by the sheriff to de- 
sist shot, at that official. The sher- 
iff and deputies returned the shots, 
killing and wounding six. We be- 
lieve in union labor and the eleva 
ting principles of unionism, but 
when it comes to saying whether 
or not a man may or may not earn 
a living, we halt. Union labor 
will fare better when it conforms 
to business condition. A trouble 
with organized labor is, while de 
manding the highest wages is al- 
ways trying to cheapen the prod - 
ucts of other branches. A rather 
inconsistent principle. 

A bill has been introduced in ihe 
legislature giving the Board of 
Trustees of the State University 
discretionary power to abolish the 
military feature of the school. 

Mr, Dill, of Jefferson county, has 
introduced a bill which seeks to 
prohibit, women from selling intox- 
icating liquors, or lodging in places 
where liquors are sold . 

The Missouri legislature has 
passed a resolution of sympathy for 
the Mlipinos. The members of 
that body should hang their heads 
with shame for sympathizing with a 
race of people who are four thirds 
brute, and whose treachery and 
bush fighting has brought sorrow 
to more than one American home. 
Frank James, the one-time outlaw 
and train- robber, should congrat- 
ulate himself that he was turned 
down by that body when he was 
after a state appointment. But 
could you expect anything better 
fr >m a body that wanted to enact, 
a law making wheat worth a dollar 
in that State, whether it was or not? 

Hon. J. B, Graham, who was ap- 
pointed on the Board of Trustees 
of the Girl's Industrial School to 
succeed Capt. Plowman, by Gov- 
ernor Samford. is well known and 
highly respected all over the State 
of Alabama. He is superintendent 
of educatiou in Talladega county 
and is deeply interested in all mat 
ters pertaining to educational mat- 
ters. He was a member of the fa- 
mous -'Flying Squadron" during 
the Morgan -Johnston campaign. 

It looks very much like Alabama 
's to have a unifornity of text books 
for public schools. School book 
publisher^ throughout the country 
are opposing the bill.

The blizzard which swept over 
some of the Northern States Sun- 
day and Monday made the editor of 
The Sentinel a little homesick. He 
well remembers being aboard a 
passengen train in western Kansas 
in 1884 which v\ as snowed in, the 
snow drifting over tops of the 
coaches. They dug us out after we 
had been buried thirty-six hours. 

Some of the pauers are making 
much of " Bryan as a printer" be- 
cause he fed twenty sheets of paper 
into a cylinder press, A great feat 
for a statesman, to be sure! We've

A great wave of reform seems to 
have stuck Chicago. On Monday 
of this week 25o saloon keepers 
were arrested in that city for keep- 
ing their places open on Sunday. 
These reform waves are periodical 
in Chicago, generally arriving just 
before a city election, and even 

wrote his editorials, set the type, then it is not difficult to get ad 

made up the forms, and then 
worked off the entire issue on a 
Washington press, without help; 
and when it became known that 
the county editor of a ''commoner'' 
paper than one reads to-day was 
without an assistant, a committee 
of four called to present him to the 
community by pitching him out of 
his upstair office window. We 
trust, editor Bryan will not be so 
warmly regarded. — Sheffield Rea- 

The ground hog came out of his 
hole last Saturda} and was con- 
fronted with a great big shadow. 
According to the old adage the 
weather for six weeks longer will 
be of the "rough house" variety. 
But, then, what has the groundhog 
got to do with the weather? 

We hope some one will kidnap 
the weather clerk, and hold him 
until as a ransom he promises no 
more such cold snaps as recently 
visited this section . 

almost anywhere on Clark street — 
the toughest street in the world — 
while the dives about the Polk 
Street Depot are open 365 days in 
the year. The gamblers and saloon 
keepers of Chicago control the 
municipal affairs of that city, and 
so long as the police get their div- 
idends the "strong arm" and 
"hold up" men have no difficulty 
in making their escape after some 
depredation. Chicago is a big town 
a great town, but it, is a haven of 
security for crriminals. 

A bill has been introduced au- 
thorizing the State Auditor to draw 
a warrant in favor of the Sloss- 
Shetlield Steel and Iron company 
for (505,000, being the amount paid 
by that company to the State Treas 
e.rer in an ( elfort, to buy the Univer-

The solemn rites of matrimony 
were quietly but beautifully sol- 
emnized at the home of the bride in 
this place at 11 a. m. last Sum av 
morning, between Mr. Phillip Nye 
and Mrs. Alice E. Fin ley. The 
bridegroom has resided in Calera 
a little more than a year, but in 
that short time he has won- a host 
of friends, and all hope ho will al. 
ways prove worthy of the splendid 
woman he has won for a wife. 
Mrs. Fin ley that was is an excel ■ 
lent woman, and her many lovable 
ways has drawn to her a large cir- 
cle of admiring friends May the 
pathway of the newly n-edded pair 
be strewn only with roses as lh>y 
pass down the stream of life is the 
wish of all who know them 

Dr. B. E. Kidd has returned from 
a pleasant visit to Birmingham. 
By the way, it is reported that 
the doctor will soon remove to that 
city, but Calera cannot spare Ben. 

Constable Gist is making a very 
efficient officer. 

W. Griffin Milner (called Wright 
by his familiars), the delivery clerk 
for Large's store, was a few days 
ago seen with collar, cravat and

spreading over the country. 

Mr. El wood Gunp has accepted a 
position with Holcomb & Co., where 
he will be glad to see his friends.

Was the Teachers Recital 
Saturday Night. 


And is Charmed With' the Entertainment 
Given Them by Artists. 

Absence from town prevented the 
news gatherer for The Sentinel being 
pesent at the teachers' recital last Sat- 
urday night, but through the kindness 
of a friend we are furnished with the 
following interesting account. of it: 

Quite the most delightful entertain- 
ment of the 7ea3on was the recital given 
by the teachers of the A. G. I. S. at the 
College Chapel on last Saturday night. 
The selections were all so pleasing and 
so excellently given ilia* any discrim- 
ination would be unfair. 

The rostrum was tastefully decorated 
with evergreens and palms, making a 
beautiful background (or the fair ladies, 
who, in their evening costumes, made 
a picture of loveliness." 

The program opened with a duett up- 
on two pianos, ' 'March e friomphale," 
by Misses Bush and Wilson, who «ere 
gowned in white organdies and face ap- 
plique. That the audience enjoyed 
this music was evinced by the almost 
breathless silence with which it was 
received, and. the burst of app'ause as 
the ladies retired, 

A vocal solo, Gounod's "Ave Maria," 
was beautifully given by Mrs. Chase, 
who was most becomingly gowned in 
gray and pink with black velvet trim- 
mings. Mrs. ('base has a deep, rich 
contralto voice which is under perfect 
control and is always most pleasing to 
her hearers. This number was given 
witti violin and piano accompaniment 
by Misses Sampey and' Bnsh 

Miss Barnes then delighted the aud- 
ience by her fine re d.uon of a double 
elocutionary number — "Old Fashioned 
Courtship," " Modern Courtship " Miss 
Barnes was beautifully gowned in pink 
crepe de cheue with pearl applique. 

Miss Bush, in her usual inimitable 
manner, gave Rubinstein's ''Kamennoi 
Oostrow" No. 2-, 'vhicli was most en- 
joyable, and elicited prolonged ap- 

-Miss Sampey in a pretty costume of 
blue mousline, delighted her hearers 
with a violin solo, "Gavotte" Mo. 2, by 

A recitation by Miss Evans, ''He and 
She," was splendidly rendered and 
proves her to be an elocutionist of mer- 
it. She was handsome in black silk 
and inousliiie with jet trimming.. A 
prolonged and vigorous encoic caih-i; 
her back to I'm ther please the audi, ncc 
with that familiar and ever popular 
poem, "An Old Sweetheart of M ine " 

Miss Wilson gave C"dard's 2nd Ma- 
zurka to her appreciative listeners, who 
were eager to hear more, but .-die re- 
fused to respond to the prolonged en- 
core only by "a smiling face at the 

.M rs. Chase gave "Parlate D'Amor" 
from Faust, which was splendidly 1 ren- 
dered and enthusiastically received and 
elicited an encore — "tie was a Prince," 
which was much enjoyed. 

Mi.-s Barnes held her audience spell- 
bound by her grand rendu on of the 
"Arena Scene" from Quo Vadis, prov- 
ing herself to be a tragic queen. Afier 
prolonged applause she finally gave 
Tennyson's Bugle Song in a imiotj 
charming manner, to an almost breath- j 
less audience demons 1 rating her sple.n- 
oid and varied elocutionary power. 

Weber's "f)er FVeiscliUtu," as given! 
by Mi-. Cha.-e, Mis-es Bush, Wilson 
and. Sampey, on two pianos, was a fit- 
ling finale to an evening of rare enjoy- 
ment. Those who wen! so fortunate as 
to attend certainly enjoved a "least of 
music and a flow of soul."

A Wise and Vesieriijtle kJo--i., . iv.Hss about Advanced Science. 

In a leading' hoi el, in n- sri-eat city, a famous and aged physician was convers--. 
tag. Listening to his \vi«« and sententious discourse, were a group of well 
dressed men, evidently lawyers, business men and commercial travelers. 

Aly firm belief, is " that medical science is certaifi yet to show that all diS' 
eases without exception are caused by invisible germs which are living 1 organ-. 
Isms. Here is the germ of that terrible disease diphtheria. Here is the bacillus 
of typhoid fever; and here is the still more dreadful ba.cJ.llus of tubercle which, 
causes that most de- tructive of all diseases, consumption. This of that very 
common and supposed incurable disease, catarrh." 

" I wish. Doctor," said the traveling 1 man, "that you would tell us about 
catarrh. I have had it for years, and I am thoroughly discouraged. " 

The Doctor answered. "Catarrh, like diphtheria, consumption, typhoicj 
fever, and a host of oth a r diseases, is the result of a microbe invading the blood 
and attacking 1 specially the mucous membrane. This foul and most disgusting 
disease is especially prevalent in the United States and it is rare to meet one 
who is not, or has not beea troubled more or less How often is he. ^ 
she obliged to remain at home from pleasant entertainments, deprive. themselves 
of many intellectual treats, from fear of the disagreeable odor arising 1 from ca- 
tarrhal affections. In its worst phase, the patient becomes loathsome both to 
himself and his friends. 

" I believe," continued this great physician, "that the true way to heal ca-_ 
tarrh is to medicate the blood. This can be done only by powe»fnl alteratives' 
which act as blood purifiers." 

Betsy A. Marett, of Manistee, Manistee Co., Mich., writes 

Dear Sirs For ten years I was a sufferer from general debility and chronic 
catarrh. My face was pale as death. I was weak and short of breath. I ^onlj' 
hardly walk, I was so dizzy and had a ringing in my head all the time. My 
hands and feet were always cold. My appetite was very poor. On getting up 
in the morning, my head swam so I %vas often obliged to lie down again. I had 
awful pains in the small of my back. 1 had a continual feeling of tiredness. 
My muscular power was a.imcst entirely gone, and I couldn't go half a dozen 
steps without stepping to rest, and often that much exercise caused me to have 
a pain in my side. It seemed as though the blood had left my veins. The doe- 
tors said my blood had all turned to water. I had given all hope of ever get- 
ting well. I tried tho. be^t physicians in the state, but failed to get any relief. 
My husband got me a bottle of Johns' on's Sarsapariila. I took it, and then I 
bpught another. When these had been used, I was somewhat improved in 
health. I continued its use, and felt I was growing stranger; my sleep was re- 
freshing, and it seemed as if I could feel new blood" moving through my veins. I 
kept on taking it, and now consider myself fc. well and rugged woman.. I work 
all the time, and am happy. Iam positive that the Ssrsaparilla saved !»y life., 
"".'he sick headaches I hn,ve had since childhood, hare disappeared, and my ca- 
tarrh has almost entirely left me. I cannot be too thankful for what Johnston's 
ISarsaparilla has done for me. I recommend all women who nave >!<• &«ad- 
fcches to use your Saraaparilla.

at a temperature which was always 
much below freezing point, was found 
to be alive at the end of fourteen days. 
Captain Reed, in command of the ves- 
sel In question, supplements the story 
with the statement that the bird was 
supposed to be killed by being strang- 
led with twine tied as tightly as pos- 
sible around the neok. This twine 
was not removed. The beak was 
dosed and tied and the legs crossed 
behind the tail and tied and the legs 
crosses behind the tall and tied. It 
waa theu wrapped in an old meat 
oloth and put with three other birds 
In the return box at the end of the

for certainly not less than ten days.

the albatross was taken out, when it 
was found that It could move its neck 
about and open its boak and the eyes 
were open and lifelike. The lower 
half of the body and the legs were 
frozen hard. The fastening on the 
beak had come off. It was alive for 
two hours after being taken out and

They Are Scarcely Distinguishable from 
Their Surroundings. 

The butterfly invariably goes to sleep 
head downward, ite eyes looking 
straight dawn the stem of the grass. 
It folds and contracts ite wings to the 
utmost, partly, perhaps, to wrap it* 
body from the cold. But the effect is 
to reduce its size and shape to a nar- 
row ridge, making an acute angle with 
the grass-stem, hardly distinguishable 
In shape and color from the seed-heads 
on thousands of other sterna around. 
It also sleeps on the top of the stem, 
whloh increases Its Hkeness to the nat- 
j ural flnial of tho grass. In the morn- 
ing, when the sunbeams warm them, 
all these gray-pied sleepers on tho 
grass-tops open their wings and the 
colorless bennets are starred with a 
thousand living flowers of purest aaure. 
Side by side with the "blues" sleep 
the common "brown heaths." They 
use the grass stems for beds, but less 
carefully, and with no such obvious 
solicitude to compose their limbs in 
harmony with the lines of the plant. 
They also sleep with their heads down- 
ward, but the body is allowed to droop 
sideways from the stem like a lefif. 
This, with their light coloring, makes 
them far more conspicuous than the 
blues. Moreover, as grass has no 
leaves shaped in any way like the 
sleeping butterfly, tho contrast of 
shape attracts notice. Can It be that 
the blues, whose brilliant coloring by 
day makes them conspicuous to every 
enemy, have learnt caution, while the 
brown heaths, less exposed to risk, 
are less careful of concealment? Be 
it noticed that moths and butterflies 
go to sleep in different attitudes. 
Moths fold their wings back upon their 
bodies, covering the lower wing, 
which is usually bright in color, with 
the upper wing. They fold their an- 
tennae back on the line of their wings. 
Butterflies raise the wings above their 
bodies and lay them back to back, put- 
ting their antennae between them, If 
they move at all. — London Spectator. 

To Mothers of Large Families. 

In this workaday world few women 
are so placed that physical exertion 
is not constantly demanded of them 
in their daily life. 

Mrs. JMnkham makes a special appeal 
to mothers o£ largo families whose 
work is never done, and many of 
whom suffer, and suffer for lack of 
intelligent aid. 

To woman, young or old, rich or 
poor, Mrs. Pinkham, of Lynn, Mass., 
extends her invitation of free advice. 
Oh, women ! do not let your lives be

What Hones Will Ea*. 
Many horsemen have found thut the 
addition of a pound of fair quality of 
moist brown sugar to a horse's feed of 
chaff and com doubles its -work-pro- 
ducing power. When no other feed is 
obtainable a few pounds of flour, mised 
with enough water to make them easi- 
ly drinkable, have great staying pow- 
ers, tout few horses would take this, 
however hungry, unless they had at 
some previous time been made ac- 
customed to it. Horses, when thero 
was little grass, have habitually robbed 
mining camps of fresh, salt or dried 
meat. It is even more certain that no 
horse would touch flesh unless at some 
time accustomed to it. During the 
early times of the Western gold dig- 
gings, when gold was being found in 
large quantities and horse feed, beyond 
the grass, was not procurable, many 
of the rich claim holders fed the horse3 
used in their wo;k on the mine with 
bread sooner than suff»r delay. Bread, 
even unleavened, is better food for 
horses than raw flour and water, but it 
takes time to prepare and is rarely 
available on an emergency, while flour 
is much more likely to be. In Singa- 
pore it is not uncommon for horses to 
be given a loaf of bread soaked with 
a bottle of beer, which they eat greed- 
ily. In Iceland horses and cattls ai»a 
frequently fed on dried fish. Sheep 
often eat meat, irult, bread, pastry and 
the like, and even tobacco in consider- 
able quantity without harm ensuing.

Experiment* with Aluminum 
dactor for Electricity. 

The already practically foreshadowed 
widening use of aluminum conductors 
for electric transmission purposes adds 
interest to Lord Kelvin's recently ex- 
pressed opinion of them. The weight 
of aluminum required, he said, is al- 
most exactly one-half of the copper 
which would produce the same effect. 
The diameter of cable is 28 per cent 
in excess of one made of copper, and 
the cost of insulation for an under- 
ground cable is increased in about the 
same proportion when we pass from 
the copper to aluminum. Aluminum 
is not a pleasant metal to deal with, 
but Its high conductivity will make it 
invaluable for overhead transmission, 
says Cassler's Magazine. It is true 
also that the weight to be supported 
on posts is half of copper, but the sur- 
face exposed to the wind is greater, 
and Its strength is not groat. The 
chief drawback to its use, especially 
overhead, is its liablity to become rot- 
ten. This defect does not exist if 
the metal be pure, and especially if 
free from sodium. But exposure to 
the atmosphere, especially near the 
sea, induces deterioration. The fact 
that aluminum i3 easily oxidized ought 
not to condemn It. The same is true 
of iron and steel, and yet. we do not 
hesitate to place structures of these 
metals in exposed positions. Only we 
paint them; so Lord Kelvin proposes 
that we- paint or varnish aluminum 
conductors wherever necessary. A few 
hundred yards of l^-inch aluminum 
wire were put up by Lord Kelvin on a 
Scotch estate somewhat over a year

Congressional Committee 
flakes Report to House. 


Vicious Practices at West Point 
Would Be Classed as Felonies 
In Some States. 

A Washington special says: The 
report of the special congressional 
committee which investigated the haz- 
ing of Cadet Booz and the general sub- 
ject of hazing at West Point was sub- 
mitted Saturday to the house of repre- 
sentatives by the chairman of the com- 
mittee, Representative Eick, together 
with a bill making stringent regula- 
tions against hazing, fighting and all 
brutal practices. 

The report is an exhaustive review 
of the practice of hazing in all its 
forms, and, while moderate in tone, is 
nevertheless a stinging arraignment of 
the many alleged brutal prac- 
tices enumerated. It specifies more 
than 100 distinct methods of annoying 
and harrassing fourth-class men, and 
describes them in detail. 

One of the "funny formations" de- 
Fcribed is that praoticed on Philip 
Sheridan, Jr., who was compelled to 
ride a broomstick in "mockery of hie 
illustrious father's achievement at 

The report states that a system of 
fighting has grown which is shocking 
in its character. The fights are de- 
scribed, and the committee states that 
the West Point code is more vicious 
than the Queensburry code. The com- 
mittee held that fighting is the worst 
form of hazing. The reports says that 
suoh fighting as that at West Point is 
a felony according to the statutes in 
many of the states, and the time has 
come when congress must decide 
whether fights, which are high crimes 
elsewhere, shall continue at West 

The committee finds that Cadets 
MacArthur, Breth and Burton wero 
hazed into convulsions, others were 
hazed until they fainted, while others 
were hazed until they were sick. 

The hazing of Cadets Booz and 
Breth are elaborately treated, but the 
committee does not attribute their 
death directly to hazing. The report 

"But while we cannot fix upon haz- 
ing the responsibility for the deaths, 
the probability that it hastened them, 
and the blot it throws on the 
otherwise fair and glorious fame of the 
academy, its conflict with proper train- 
ing, discipline and unfitness in this 
new contury, urges the adoption of 
reasonable, yet we believe effective 
measures for its eradication and the 
promotion of discipline in the aca- 

The bill Mibrnitted contains eleven 
sections against hazing and provides 
means for its detection and yunish- 
ment. Dismissal is provided for tak- 
ing part in a fight or challenge, di- 
rectly or indirectly, or for any form 
of annoying, harassing or bracing of 
cadets. Cadets dismissed are made 
ineligible to appointment to the army, 
navy or marine corps. 


Victim Was Cursing Her When He 
Was Stopped By Pistol Ball. 

In Lee county, Alabama, Friday 
afternoon in the Smith Station neigh- 
borhood, seven miles west of Colum- 
bus, Ga. , Mrs. John Hanners, wife 
of a well known farmer, shot and kill- 
ed John Pearson, alias John Cincin- 
nati, a negro. Cincinnati was a farm 
hand on Hanners' place. He and his 
employer were in Columbus Friday 
afternoon, and it seems that both were 
drinking when they returned home. 

Late in the afternoon the negro went 
into the house and began to curse. 
Mrs. Hanners who was in the house, 
told him to quit or leave the premises. 
He continued cursing and she again 
ordered him out. She told him that 
if he did not 6top she would kill him. 

In an insulting manner the negro 
walked up to her, stuck his face close 
to hers and tauntingly told her to kill 
him. The next moment the shot him 
dead with a pistol. 


Campbell County Whitecapper Is 
Sentenced to the Peniten- 
tiary For Life. 

Pegram Cochran, the first of the 
seven men charged with the assassi- 
nation of Sterling Thompson, the 
negro planter, near Fairburn, Ga., a 
few months ago, goes to the peniten- 
tiary for life. 

The jury, after being out all night 
Friday night, returned a verdict of 
guilty Saturday morning, with a rec- 
ommendation to mercy. 

The defendant was present in the 
court room when the verdict was read. 
He was pale and nervous, but stood 
the strain remarkably well. His aged 
father and two of his brothers were 
present, as was his little boy. 

"Lord bless you, son," said the 
condemned father, as he told the little 
fellow goodby with tears in his eyes. 

Judge Candler sentenced him to life- 
time imprisonment in the penitentiary 
and ordered that he be confined in 
Fulton county jail until carried to the 

Counsel for the defendant gave 
notice of a motion for new trial, and 
the court fixed the first day of March 
for the hoaiing. There are six other 
defendants in Fulton county jail await- 
ing trial on the same charge, that of 
the murder of Sterling Thompson, col- 


Former Head of the Q. A. R. Expires 
Suddenly In Washington. 

Representative Albert D. Shaw, of 
Watertown, N. Y., formerly com- 
mander in chief of the Grand Army of 
the Kepublic, was found dead Sunday 
morning in his room at the Riggs 
house in Washington. A physician 
summoned immediately after the dis- 
eovery of the body pronounced death 
due to apoplexy, probably about 2 
o'clock in the morning. 

Colonel Shaw had returned about 
1.30 o'clock from a banquet at the 
Ebbitt house in honor of his successor 
as commander In chief of the Grand 
A.rmy of the Bepublic, General Leo 
Rassieur, and before he left the ban- 
quet hall responded eloquently to a 
toast and appeared in excellent health 
and spirits. The body was discovered 
lying faoe downward on the floor, 
where he had fallen suddenly. 

Colonel Shaw was fifty-nine years of 
age and a veteran of the civil war. 


Sprague Made the Mistake of Inviting 
Colored Congressman. 

A Washington dispacth says: Bace 
prejudice has caused the recall of in- 
vitations sent out by Congressman 
Charles F. Sprague, of Massachusetts, 
to members of the house District of 
Columbia committee to dine with him. 

By an oversight Sprague sent an in- 
vitation to George H. White, the North 
Carolina negro member of congress, 
who is a member of the committee. 

Representative Otey of Virginia sus- 
pected White had been invited to the 
dinner and he refused to accept 
Sprague's hospitality. Other members 
sent declinations, and as it finally 
dawned upon Mr. Sprague that he 
would have to break bread with him- 
self and the negro, White alone, he 
decided to call off the dinner and will 
get up another one to which the mem- 
bers of the committee will be invited 
as individual members of congress. In 
this way White will not be invited. 

The incident has excited muoh 
comment in the house. 

Northern as well as southern mem- 
bers refused to eat with the negro 

White is probably the last of the 
negro members of congress. He goes 
out on March 4 and will be succeeded 
by a Democrat. 


Engine Was Badly Wrecked, But No 
One Was Seriously Hurt. 

Train No. 37 on the Southern, which 
left Atlanta, Ga. , Sunday afternoon at 
4:15 o'clock for Birmingham, was de- 
railed three and one-half miles beyond 
Waco at 6:12 o'clock. 

The engine was turned over and en- 
tirely demolished, but neither the en- 
gineer nor fireman was injured. 

The only person on the train who 
sustained any injuries of consequence 
was John Jones, a freight conductor 
on the Southern, who was riding iD 
tho baggage car. 


South Carolinian Roasts 
Pensions Committee. 


Swears That Me Will Blook Pen- 
sin Bills Hereafter to the 
Best of Mis Ability. 

A Washington special says: Tho 
passage at the beginning of the sessioD 
of the senate Saturday of a bill grant- 
ing a pension of $50 a month to Stacy 
H. Cogswell, company F, Thirteenth 
Indiana volunteer regiment, induced 
Mr. Tillman, of South Carolina, to 
make some forceful comments upon 
the house in not taking action upon a 
bill providing a pension for a Mexican 
war veteran who had resided in South 
Carolina during the civil war and 
naturally had been in sympathy with 
the confederacy. The bill had been 
passed by the senate, but the house 
invalid pension committee was delay- 
ing final action upon it. 

Mr. Tillman said that there was so 
much sectional animosity in the house 
committee that the members refused 
to permit action upon the bill for the 
benefit of his old Mexican veteran. 

"We, of the south, want to know if 
the struggle is ended," shouted the 
irate senator, as he uttered oaths to 
Senator Hale of Maine, who objected 
to further debate. 

Senator Tillman went to Hale's desk 
and swore he would "see them in hell" 
before any more pension bills should 
pass, if he could prevent it. 

Later he obtained the floor and reit- 
erated his complaint against the house 
committee and refused to be discip- 
lined by Senator Chandler. 

Senator Tillman was furious, and 
his speech quickly drew a crowd to the 
galleries and all senators to the floor. 

Senator Tillman demanded the re- 
peal of the law presenting the pension 
of veterans of the Mexican and other 
wars because they rendered aid to the 


He Is at Home For a Brief Rest From 
Duties at Japanese Capital. 

Colonel A. E. Buck, minister pleni- 
potentiary and envoy extraordinary to 
Japan, has returned to Atlanta for a 
brief vacation, after an absence of 
about three and one-half years. The 
minister and his wife reached Atlanta, 
Ga., and registered at the Aragon. Od 
the hotel register Colonel Buck gave 
his residence as "city." He will re 
main in Atlanta for two or three days 
attending to some private business be- 
fore proceeding to Waghington and 
reporting to the state department. He 
pects to sail from San Franoisco to re- 
sume his post in Japan about May 1st. 
This is Colonel Buck's first visit to his 
old home since his departute for his 
post in the orient in May, 1897. 

Colonel Buck was asked about his 
plans and particularly about his par- 
ticipation in the councils of the Repub- 
lican party in Georgia. He said: 

"I am not going to hold any con- 
ferences with the Republican leaders 
in Georgia. I am out of politics. I 
may see some of the leading Repub- 
licans who are my personal friends, 
but I am not going to talk politics 
with them. I do not intend again to 
take an active intere-it in politics in 
the state. I am not in politics any 


One Kansas Town Is Entirely Rid of 
"Joints" By Raiders. 

Hollon, Kan., was purged of its 
joints Saturday. The purging pro- 
cess was accomplished by a band of at 
least 1,000 who took the town in their 
hands and attacked the joints. Three 
joints were put out of business and 
Hollon is a dry town for the first time 
in fifteen years. 

Death Sentence For Three. 
Saturday, at Greenville, S. C, Judge

Ohio Congressman Alalcos Anti-Col- 
onial Policy Spsecli In House. 

The consideration of the diplomatic 
and consular appropriation bill in the 
house Saturday developed something 
of a sensation, when Representative 
Brown, of Ohio, standing in the center 
of the Republican Bide of the chamber, 
made a speech strongly condemning a 
colonial policy and urging that con- 
gress should ut once give assurance to 
the Filipinos that tho purpose of the 
United States was to give them inde- 


Mrs. Carrie Nation, For the First 
Time, Shows the White 

A Topeka dispatch says: Mrs. Na- 
tion for the first time displayed the 
white feather Thursday. It was at a 
meeting of thirty of her followers, who 
armed with hatchets, had gathered in 
secret to arrange a night raid on To- 
peka joints. The women had been 
promised the aid of several male stu- 
dents at Washburn college who were 
to come to town armed after midnight 
and personally take part in the raid 
and also see that the women were not 

The . women planned minutely for 
the raid. It was decided to saunter 
out at 3 o'clock in the morning and 
demolish every joint in town. 

Suddenly, when everything seemed 
satisfactorily arranged for a terrific 
onslaught, Mrs. Nation balked, be- 
gun putting on her wraps and said 
she was going home. 

Instantly her followers were in an 
uproar. Mingled with expressions of 
surprise at her quick change of front, 
soon came words of condemnation. 

Finally one woman, who had spent 
a greater part of the day collecting 
hatchets and solicting aid of the 
orusaders, rushed to where Mrs. Na- 
tion stood, in the center of a group, 
and, shaking her fist in the Wichita 
woman's face, shouted excitedly: 

"You are a coward, Mrs. Nation, 
you are a coward!" 

For a moment Mrs. Nation lost 
control of herself. 

"I am not a coward," she said with 
emphasis. "I will go this minute with 
any one woman and smash a joint." 

A dozen voices were raised. 

"I'll go, I'll go," and for a moment 
it looked as if an instant raid would 

But Mrs. Nation soon calming her- 
self, told the women she was tirefi, 
that the "Lord did not wish her to go 
tonight," and without further ado left 
the room. 


Steel flagnate Holds Money Kings to 
His Own Terms. 

A New York dispatch says: Friday's 
new developments in connection with 
the negotiations touching the transfer 
of the Carnegie Steel company to J. 
Pierpont Morgan and his associates 
were first that Mr. Carnegie is to re- 
ceive $1,500 for each $1,000 share of 
his stock; second, that minority hold- 
ers who desire to sell will receive the 
same terms as those given to Mr. -Car- 
negie; third, that the present 
stage of the negotiations contem- 
plates the formation of a new cor- 
poration whose bonds will play a large 
part in the price to be paid to Mr. 
Carnegie, and, fourth, the first public 
announcement in connection with the 
pending negotiations of an official 
character consisting of a statement by 
H. E. Gary, president of the Federal 
Steel Company, confirming the news 
that J. P. Morgan is planning the 
acquisition of the properties of some 
of the largest iron and steel companies 
of this country. 

If, as now seems certain, Mr. Car- 
negie is to receive 81,500 for each 
$1,000 share of his stock, the transfers 
in his case alone will be the equivalent 
of nearly $130,000,000, inasmuch as 
the great steel magnate's holding at 
present amount to $80,000,000. If, 
as seems probable, the minority hold- 
ers are to be looked after by Mr. Mor- 
gan's syndicate, the financiering will 
involve the equivalent of $240,000,000. 


Receivers Appointed to Manage Af- 
fairs of the Castellanes. 

At New York Friday Judge La- 
combe, in the United States circuit 
court, appointed George J. Gould and 
Helen M. Gould receivers of all in- 
come of the Countess de Castellane in 
excess of $200,000 per year. This ac- 
tion was taken in a suit brought by 
Eugene Fischoff, an Austrian creditor, 
against the Countess de Castellane 
and against George J. Gould, Edwin 
Gould, Howard Gould and Helen M. 
Gould, as executors and trustees un- 
der the will of Jay Gould. This suit 
is for the benefit of all creditors.

Clever Capture of Thieves Who Had 
Stolen an Express Safe. 

Prompt and active work by the au-

the arrest of three men who are accused 
of having been implicated in the theft

have contained §40,000. The Chicago, 
Milwaukee and St. Paul train on which 
the safe was taken from Sioux City 
arrived at Manila at 8:05 p. xa. Satur-

Birmingham Attorney Has a 
Lively Courtship. 


Alabama Loses Sale of 100,000 
Tons of Coal—New Plant at 
Ensley-Other State 


Prominent Birmingham Attorney Se- 
cures a Bride Under Difficul- 

The courtship of two of the most 
prominent young people in Alabama 
terminated in Montgomery Sunday in 
a tragedy succeeded by a happy mar- 
riage. The story appears to be as fol- 

For several years Hon. John W. 
McQueen, of Birmingham, assistant 
solicitor of Jefferson county, and Miss 
Caroline Beale, one of the loveliest of 
Montgomery's young women, have 
been sweelhearts. The young Bir- 
mingham lawyer was not rich in the 
goods of this world, and the young la- 
dy's parents were not partial to his 
suit, but rather encouraged that of a 
suitor in the east, whose high position 
was already established. Becently 
Mr. McQueen went to Montgomery on 
some business connected with the 
legislature, in which he represented 
his county for several terms, and 
while there renewed his attentions to 
Miss Beale. Her father is said to 
have emphatically informed Mr. Mc- 
Queen that his attentions must cease. 
He continued them, however, and 
Saturday night tho couple met at an 
evening luncheon. They appear to 
have talked matters over at the lunch- 
son and determined to marry, as they 
afterwards went to tho residence of 
the probate judge and endeavored to 
secure a license. The judge being a 
friend of the family and being aware 
of the parental objection, denied this 
request and Sunday morning informed 
the father of 1 he young woman. Mr. 
Beale thereupon went to the residence 
of Chief Justice McClellan of the su- 
preme court, and called for Mr. Mc- 
Queen, who was a guest there. The 
colloquy at the McClellan house ap- 
pears to have been spirited. Just 
what was said cannot be learned, but 
Mr, Beale fired several times upon Mr. 
McQueen. Fortune seems to have fa- 
vored the young lawyer for he escaped 
unhurt, although his host. Judge Mc- 
Clellan, caught one of the bullets in 
his shtfulder, causing a flesh wound 
which, however, his friends through- 
out the south will be glad to learn is 
not serious. 

So much for the tragedy, now for 
the romance. . 

As soon as Mr. Beale left the prem- 
ises friends of the young couple com- 
menced arrangements looking to an 
immediate marriage, which occurred 
in the parlors of Probate Judge Gas- 
ton two or three hours later by Rev. 
Edward Cobbs, of the Episcopal 
church, in the presence of a few 
friends and relatives, the father being 
in the meanwhile detained downtown.

A local lodge of the order of Broth- 
erhood of Elks was organized in De- 
catur Sunday night. There was a 
large crowd of Elks in attendance 
from the other portions of tho stato 
numbering about sixty, coming 
in a special car.

Alabama Unable to Snpply the Dot 
mand for Coal. 

The Birmingham distriot has recent- 
lost the sale of 100,000 tons of ooal 
for export beoause tho ooal oompaniea 
were not able to fill the orders within 
the time limit. The order went to 
the Jellico mines in Tennessee, and 
several tons of the coal are now on the 
docks at Pensacola awaiting the ar- 
rival of the steamers. This big sale 
was brought about by the Louisville 
& Nashville Bailroad company 
through its agents, who first came to 
Birmingham and interviewed the 
operators of this distriot. Finding 
that the Alabama mines could not 
supply the demand already made 
upon them, they went to Tennessee 
and closed the contraot with the Jel- 
lico company. Another instanoe ol 
the shortage in the supply of Ala- 
bama ooal is the fact that the South- 
ern railway is now using Tennessee 
coal in its engines that run through 
Birmingham. Tennessee coal is 
shipped to Greenville, Miss., for use 
in engines on that end of the South- 
ern's system. These conditions are 
made possible only by the enormous 
demand upon the Alabama mines, 
which have been taxed to their ut- 
most capacity for the past year and 
a half. During that time the out- 
put in the State has been increased 
from about 500,000 tons to about 
750,000 tons a month. 

For over a year the Louisville & 
Nashville Kailroad company has been 
forced to secure a good portion of its 
supply of coal for its engines on this 
division from Kentucky mines. It is 
safe to state that if the coal operators 
in Alabama were able to deliver all 
the coal they could sell the produc- 
tion of the mines in this state would 
exceed 10,000,000 tons a year instead 
of about 9,000,000 tons, the estimated 
production in 1900. The new mines 
that have been opened in the past few 
months and whioh will be worked be- 
fore spring, together with other 
mines that are to be opened within 
the next few months, will add over a 
million tons a year to the production 
of the state, thus bringing the total 
for the year 1901 above the 10,000,000 
ton mark, unless market conditions 
undergo a considerable change and 
cut down the demand. H. F. De- 
Bardelegen, who ia at the head of two 
coal companies organized within the 
last three weeks, states that several 
openings will soon be made on prop- 
erties controlled by him. 

Ensley's New Plant. 
A rumor which has been well 
circulated on the streets of Ensley 
and Wylam for the past few days that 
the Southern Car and Foundry Com- 
pany had placed the contract for the 
excavating and grading for their new 
plant, has caused a new impetus to 
real estate matters. A number of lots 
have changed hands at good prioes. 
A preliminary survey of the location 
for this plant has been made, but so 
far as is known here the contraot has 
not been let. It is a fact, however, 
that bids on this work have been 
turned in and it is probable that suoh 
a contract will be made very soon. 

F. C. Gordon For Commissioner. 

Eugene C. Gordon, of Athens, Ala., 
brother of Gen. John B. Gordon, tho 
commander-in-chief of the United 
Confederate Veterans' association, is 
beiQg indorsed for appointment by 
the president of the United States as 
one of the nine commissioners to tho 
Louisiana Purchase Exposition or 
World's Fair, to be held in St. Louis 
in 1903. 

Work Progressing Nicely. 
Work on the grounds where the 
Alexander City cotton mills are to be 
built is progressing nicely. It is 
thought that artesian water can be 
had, and Mr. Matthews, from Provi- 
dence, B. I., is boring the well. He 
has gone to a depth of over one hun- 
dred feet, and will go two thousand 
feet if necessary to reach water that 
will flow. 

Norwegian Ship Li aves. 
The Norwegian corvette Ellida, 
which has been in the Mobile port for 
several days, left Saturday for Hava- 
na, Cuba, en route to Christiania, her 
home port. During their stay here 
the officers and cadets were given a 
continual round of social attentiou. 

New Cotton Mill at Tall ;dcga.

Monte vallo, Ala., Feb. 14, 1901. 

A sensational shooting scrape 
occurred in Montgomery last Sun- 
day morning, in which Chief Jus- 
tice McClellan was dangerously 
wounded by Jesse D. Beale. The 
Beales, father and son, had gone 
to the home of Judge McClellan in 
quest of Hon. John McQueen, of 
Birmingham, to bring him to ac- 
count for what they believed the 

bad treatment of the elder Beale's

dignified attack on the powerful 
influences that were combating

stated that when he had sent his 
short message to the legislature 
at the begin nig of the session he 
was not sure that it would be bet- 
ter for the entire state to have a 
uniform text, book law or for the 
state to be divided up into sub- 
division. JHe had, however, become 
convinced that it was better for 
the entire etate to have the uni

the father. The pistol ball struck 
Judge Beale ir the shoulder. The 
wound is considered a dangerous 
one but it will take several days to 
determine the result. The Beales 
prosecuted their hunt through the 
house for McQueen, and located 
him in a closet the door of which 
was locked. They fired several 
6hots through the door but Mc 
Queen was not struck. It devel- 
oped that McQueen and Miss Car- 
oline Beale had gone to the res- 
idence of the probate judge after 
midnight to get a license to marry. 
The judge, knowing the Beales 
were opposed to the marriage, re- 
fused to issue the license, and they 
spent the rost of the night trying 
to find a county justice to perform 
the oeremony. Matters were ad- 
justed later in the day and Mr. Mc- 
Queen and Miss Beale were mar- 
ried aud have gone to New Orleans 
to spend the honeymoon. The 
bride is one of the handsomest wo - 
men in the South. The Beales are

stories above the basement, and 
will contain large and well lighted 
rooms where the classes in cooking 
and sewing will receive regular in- 
struction. Here also will be rooms

senior classes of the institution

Who the "lady in black" is, who 
at intervals , parades the streets of 
this town, isaquestion which many 
of our citizens who have met her 
and heard the "rattle of her silk- 
skirts" at night would like to know. 
She has no regular tramping 
grounds but has been met in all 
parts of the city on different nights. 
If she has a mission to perform it 
must be a secret one, for she makes 
not her wants known, or why she 
walks abroad at such late hours. 
Men have met her whose veracity 
is not questioned, and it's said they 
give her the right-of-way to the 
streets. She troubles not this ed- 
itor, but a stop should be put to 
this masked figure appearing on the 
highways and frightening those 
who may be returning home from 
their business, or the young people 
returning from some social gather, 
ing. While she does no harm its 
not good policy to allow people in 
disguise to walk the streets.

should shoot her down. She, he or

If Mrs. Nation's object is to dis- 
courage the consumption of beer, 
it must be acknowledged that in 
some cases 3he falls far short of 
attaining that end. The smashing 
of the "Senate" saloon at Topeka, 
for example, was attended by a 
large crowd of people, who looked 
upon the operation as a sort of 
show. Many of the spectators 
appear to have been very thirsty, 
too, for it is said that when Mrs. 
Nation's little hatchet had wrought 
its accustomed havoc, and the 
place had reopened for business, 
the service of four able bartenders 
were required to satisfy the 
demand for beer. With every glass 
was given as a souvenir a small 
piece of the smashed mirror, and 
the demand for drinks was so brisk 
that the profils went a long way 
toward buying another mirror.

In the Newspaper World. 

The Birmingham News is by far the 
best evening newspaper published in 
the South. One can always find the 
happenings of the world in the News, 
and in a readable shape. Editor Knt'iis 
N. Khodes is making a newspaper the 
people appreciate. 

The management of the Montgomery 
Journal has greatly improved the ap- 
pearance of that paptr in the past few 

Among the many weekly newspapers 
which come to our round t;i ble, The 
Mountain Home, at Talladega, is among 
the neatest. Typographically it is a 
gem, and editorially it is strong and 
fearless. It is deserving of the excel- 
lent patronage it is receiving. 

The Chilton Reflector is among the 
latest newspaper ventures in the State. 
It is published at Maplesviile by Thos. 
Hudson and presents a neat and at- 
tiactive appearance. Mr. Hudson was 
at one time editor of the Marion Stand- 

The old Montgomery Advertiser is a 
sure enough Alabama paper, N a ly 
a page in each issue is devoted to the 
State, and its corps of correspondents 
make the pag" an interesting one. Few 
metropolitan papers stand as close to 
the people of the South as does the 

The Athenian is a new journalistic 
venture in Alatmma, and i* published [

Athenian will be an organ of that de- 

The Moulton Advertiser has just cel- 
ebrated its seventv-third birthday. In 
point of age we are in donbt as to which 
of the two Adveitisers the honor be- 
longs — the Montgomery or Monlton. 

The TnscalooRa Sun has made its 
appearance in anew form — a six-column 
quarto. Editor Tucker's recklessness* 

is due, no doubt, to the fact, that l lie 
festive cow has no longer the right of 
way through the streets of Tuscaloosa, 
and he had to double the size of his 
paper to give expression to his ex-

infirmary in Birniinaharri, after a week 
of suffering caused by an assassin's bul- 
let!. Mr, Mr. James D. MeKibbon. 

The deceased was in the morning of 
a bright arid promising manhood. Tho' 
young in years he had already made 
rapid strides in his chosen profession, 
and stood in i; s very front rank not 
only in bis county but in the State. A 
young man of splendid address and 
pleasing personality he made friends 
of all With whom he came in contact. 
He was the youngest son of tlie late 
Cap^t McKibbon, of Calera, and was the 
idol of his widowed mrither, brother and 
sisters. A bright future and' a long life 
of usefulness seemed to await him, hut 
it was not to be; a shining mark, death 
claimed him as its own and bore him 
hence in the very dawn of m'anhood. 

His death is a calamity riot only to 
Calera, but the County as'well'. Trt hie 
srrieving relatiVes his loss is irreparable/ 
His remains were laid to rest iri' the 
Calera cemetery on la'st Wednesday af- 
ternoon in the presence of ft larce con-

A Wlso and Venerable UocCdr Talks about Advanced. Science. 

In a leading hotel, in a great 6ity, a famous and aged physician was convert*} 
Ing. Listening to his \vlst> and sententious discourse, were a group of well 
dressed men, evidently la\vyers, business men and commercial travelers. 

My firm belief, is " that medical science is certain yet to show that all <H» 
teses without exception are caused by invisible germs which are living organ- 
isms. Here is the germ of that terrible disease diphtheria. Here is the bacillus* 
tif typhoid feVei 1 ! and here is the still more dreadful bacillus of tubercle which' 
causes that most destructive of all diseases, consumption. This of that very 
Common and supposed incurable disease, catarrh." 

"Iwish, Doctor," said the traveling man, "that you would tell us about 
catarrh. I hii*o had it for years, and I am thoroughly Uiacovrajrwl'* 

The Doctor answorr.i. "Caurrh. like diphtheria, con*uwij>ttori. typhoid 
wver. and S ho*t of othrr •lUratn's, U the result hi a luicrolw invading the blood 
And attacking specially the mucous membrane. This f6ul #nii most disgusting 
disease is especially prevalent in the United i* rare to' meet ona 
who is not, or has not been troubled more or less With it. I^ow often' is he or 
«he obliged to' remain at home from pleasant entertainments, deprive themselves' 
of many intellectual treats, from fear of the disagreeable odor arising" from ca- 
tarrhal affections. In its worst phase, the patient becomes loathsome both W 
himself and his friends. 

" I believe," continued this great physician, "that; the true way to heal ca>" 

tarrh is to medicate the blood. This can be done only by powe»inJ alterativea* 
which act as blood purifiers." 

Betsy A. Ma'rett, of MaDistee, Manistee Co., Mich., writes i , , 

Dear Sirs : — For ten years I was a sufferer from general debility and chronidr 
catarrh. My face was pale as death. I was weak and short of breath. I culd 
hardly walk, I was so dizzy and had a ringing in my head all the time.^ My 
hands and feet were always cold. My appetite was very poor. Oh getting upl 
hi the morning, my head swam so I was often obliged to" lie down again'. I had 
awful pains in the small of my back. 1 had a continual feeling of tiredness. 
My muscular power was almost entirely gone, and I couldn't go half a, dozen' 
steps without stopping to rest, and often that much exercise cftusedr me tb have' 
a pain hi my side. It seemed as though the blood had left my veins. The doc-' 
tors said my blood had all turned' to water. I had given up all hope of ever get- 
ting well. I tried the best physicians in the state, but failed to get any relief. 
My husband got me a bottle of Johnston's Sarsaparilla. I took it,' ftnd then I 
bought another. When these had been used, I was somewhat improved in 
health. I continued its use, and felt I was growing stronger?, m'y sleep was re-i

Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound. 

" Dear Mrs. Pinkham :— It is with pleasure that 
I add my testimony to your list, hoping it may induce 
others to avail themselves of the benefit of your val- 
uable remedy. Before taking Lydia E. Pink- 
ham's Vegetable Compound, I felt very bad, 
was terribly nervous and tired, had sick headaches, 
no appetite, gnawing pain in stomach, pain in my 
back and right side, and so weak I could scarcely 
stand. I was not able to do anything. Had sharp 
pains all through my body. Before I had taken half 
a bottle of your medicine, I found myself improv- 
ing. I continued its use until I had taken four 
bottles, and felt so well that I did not need to 
take any more. I am like a new person, and your 
medicine shall always have my praise." — Mrs. W.

Healthy women look younger than their age, bat you look for too old

Time deals lightly with the woman In good health, but the wasting

The Creator has endowed every woman with beauty, and every woman in good 
health is beautiful and comely to look upon. A clear, fresh, wholesome look 
is the result of the possession of good 

health, and no woman can be beautiful 
and attractive without good health. 
The dull, dead, gnawing pain, the sense 
of nervousness, weakness, oppression, 
and discouragement, the tired, listless, 
languid feeling, the shooting pains, the 
aching head, the pain in the back, ail 
these are symptoms of a disordered 
system, and all these are beauty-killers, 
producers of dull leaden complexions, 
unnatural flushings, dark circles under 

the eyes, humors, eruptions, blackheads, lustreless eyes, and other disfigurements 
which divest women of their natural gift of beauty. 

Why be homely when you can be beautiful and attractive? 
Get good health and with it those looks and attributes which attract, please, 
fascinate. It is within your power to do so, for it is within every woman's power to be weil and strong, and hence look her best, if she will use 
Greene's Nervura to give her strong, vigorous nerves, pure, rich blood, a clear complexion, and thus restore the energies and vitality of sound

Legislators go to Florida. 

The Alabama legislators adjourned 
to Florida last Friday, and they were 
completely captured by the people 
of that State, more especially 
the western portion, which is so 
earnestly seekiDg to become a part of 
Alabama. The special train bearing 
the legislative party arrived in Pensa- 
cola Saturday morning at an early 
hour over the Louisville and Nash- 
ville Railroad. The party consisted 
of some 225 persons, being largely 
composed of the members, their 
wives and daughters. When the Ala- 
bamians left their sleeping cars they 
were provided with meal tickets by 
the Pensacola committee and for the 
day the city was at their command. 
At 9 :30 o'clock the Alabamians were 
taken on board the tug Columbia for 
a trip down Pensacola Bay. 

First the great United States battle- 
ehips now lying in the bay were visited 
and the inspection of these vessels 
proved not the least interesting event 
•of the day's outing. The flagship 
Jiearsarge was first visited, and the 
visitors were cordially received and 
most courteously treated. 

The Alabama was next visited. The 
visitors were accorded a hearty greet- 
ing by Captain Bronson and his men, 
and the Alabamians were made to feel 
that they really had an interest in the 
vessel which has been named for their 
beloved State.

Suspicious Blazes Started 
In Four of Them. 


A Blaze Discovered on Nearly 
Every Floor of Palmer House. 
Robbery the flotive. 

Fires were set simultaneously on 
four floors of the Palmer house at Chi- 
cago Thursday night, and thirty-five 
minutes later fires were discovered on 
floors of tho Great Northern hotel. 
Two men, supposed to be hotel 
thieves, were seen to run from the 
Palmer house. During the excitement 
$50 worth of jewelry was stolen from 
one of the rooms of tho Great North- 
ern. About the same time a blaze 
was discovered in the Sherman house. 

Another hotel fire of suspicious ori- 
gin had been discovered only twenty- 
four hours before. The four fires con- 
vince the police that an organized 
gang of incendiaries is operating in 
Chicago. Good descriptions have been 
Recured of the two men who were seen 
running from the Palmer house and a 
number of detectives are at work on 
the case. 

The four fires, with time of discov- 
ery and attending incidents, were: 

Palmer House— Four fires set simul- 
taneously in baskets of linen on dif- 
ferent floors. Towels saturated with 
kerosene found. Fire extinguished 
by guests and employees. Two sus- 
pects seen, but allowed to escape. 
Damage nominal. 

Great Northern Hotel — Simultane- 
ous fires discovered on the H and J 
floors. Odor of kerosene on II floor. 
J. S. Friest, of New York, reported 
that $500 worth of jewelry has been 
stolen from his room. Damage of 
SI, 000 by fire and small panio among 

Sherman House — The blaze on an 
upper floor and was attended with lit- 
tle commotion. Damage $100. 

Hotel Grace- — Fire of suspicious or- 
igin discovered in linen closet. Dam- 
age nominal. 

The most dangerous fire in the 
Palmer house was on the fifth floor. 
It was extinguished at personal risk 
by John McWilliams, Jr., a senior at 
Princeton university, and the twenty- 
year-old son of John McWilliams, a 
banker at Odell, 111. By a coincidence 
young McWilliams was returning to

Odell by the burning of the family 
residence two weeks ago. 


Hall's Neck Saved Because No One 
Would Tie Rope. 

A dispatch from Huntsville, Ala., 
says: All immediate prospects of the 
lynching of Berry Hall, the school- 
master who assaulted his pupil at 
Guntersville, were dispelled at 8 
o'clock Thursday night by the arrival 
of military companies from Birming- 
ham and Gadsden. 

The jail was atrongly guarded and 
the mob is very clearly cowed. At the 
close of Hall's preliminary trial in the 
afternoon the mob burst in the door 
of the courtroom and secured posses- 
sion of Hall without trouble. They 
led him out into the courthouse yard 
for the purpose of hanging him. A 
rope was thrown over a limb, but at 
this juncture the proceeding stopped. 
No one would volunteer to tie the 
rope around the victim's neck. 

Some minutes were wasted in trying 
to compel various men to perform this 
task, but at the critical time a deputy 
sheriff walked up and, with no resist- 
ance whatever on the part of the mob, 
led the prisoner to jail. Shortly after 
this the militia arrived. 


Lord Kitchener Reports Engagement 
With the Boer General. 

The Dondon war office has received 
the following dispatch from Lord 

"Pretokia, February 14th. — Oui 
troops are uow engaged with Christian 
Dewet's force north of Philipstown, 
which we hold, Dewet having crossed 
the Orange river at Zand Drift, appar- 
ently moving west." 


Roport That Seven Nations Have De- 
cided to Fight China. 

It is reported in Tien Tsin that 
seven nations have declared war 
against China. 

It is asserted that the real reason 
for the deadlock in Pekin is a difference 
of opinion between the foreign envoys 
and the military authorities, the 
former favoring a withdrawal of the 
troop3 to Tien Tsin and the latter urg- 
ing a forward movement. 

The Tien Tsin dispatch regarding 
the reported declaration of war against 
China is not confirmed from any 


Amid Great Disorder Prince of 
Bourbon Weds Princes of 
the Asturias. 

A special from Madrid says: In 
the chapel of the royal palace, 
in the presenoe of the royal 
family and all the aristocracy and 
officials of Spain, Dona Marie de 
las Mercedes de Bourbon y Hapsburg, 
princess of the Asurias, was married 
Thursday to Prince Charles of Bour- 


A proclamation was posted during 
the day announcing the enforcement 
of martial law in consequence of the 
inability of the civil authorities to 
cope with the disturbances. 

The authorities, disturbed by the 
serious conflict Wednesday night, de- 
cided no longer to permit the populace 
to have free rein. When Madrid 
awoke it found itself under military 

Mounted troops patroled the city 
and occupied every strategic point, 
and a demonstration toward the pal- 
ace on account of the wedding was 
thus nipped in the bud. 

Immense crowds surrounded the 
palace during the ceremony, but not a 
word of disrespect was overheard. 
Tho public did not participate in the 
wedding in any way. There was no 
public fete of any character connected 
with it. After the ceremony the may- 
or issued an appeal to the populace 
asking for calmness and confiding in 
the "good sense and courtesy" of the 
inhabitants of Madrid to allow nothing 
further to occur that would compel the 
rigorous employment of martial law. 


A Washington special says: Spain 
is on the brink of a great upheaval. 
Dispatches received through diploma- 
tic souixes given an insight into the 
exact conditions at Madrid, which is 
carefully concealed in the censored 
press dispatches sent out from there. 
Weyler, of Cuban fame, is at the head 
of the forces in his capacity as captain 
general of the province. His troops 
have occupied all of the important 
points in the city, and it is feared that 
serious clashes between the people and 
the soldiers may occur. 


Shell Cochran and L. A. Hester Sen. 
tenced In Campbell Court. 

A special from Fairburn, Ga., says; 
The jury which had the case of Shell

Sterling Thompson, an aged negro, on 
January 3, after considering the evi- 
dence all Wednesday night, brought

Pegram Cochran, a brother of Shell 
Cochran, was found guilty and sen- 
tenced to life imprisonment a week 
ago for the same crime. Steve Coch- 
ran, another brother, and L. A. Hes- 
ter, Jim Polk Demoney, Frank Reeves, 
John Pace and John McKinzie, all 
white men, were jointly indioted for 
the murder of the old negro Thomp- 
son. Hester's trial was taken up 
Thursday morning. He plead guilty 
and was also given a life sentence. 


Took No Part In Ceremonies Inaugu- 
rating New Reign. 

John Redmond, in the course of an 
interview in the lobby of the house of 
commons at London Thursday evening 

"While the peers and commoners 
were jostling each other in vul- 
gar haste, to pay obeisance to Edward 
VII, every Irish member deliberately 
abstained from any participation in

The record in the case of Captain O.

Atlanta Is Having Another "Mysteri- 
ously Missing" Sensation. 
An Atlanta dispatch of Thursday 
says: Mrs. H. M. Wilson, a beautiful 
young widow v.'ho has been living at 
82 Auburn avenue, mysteriously dis- 
appeared on last Monday morning in 
company with Will Hamilton, a young 
student of pharmacy, and as a result 
her mother lies prostrate with grief

that sho ban been made the victim of 
some foul plot. The mystery shroud-

grow as tirno passes and no word is 
received from the missing couple. 


Frightful Accident In a 
Canadian Colliery. 


Prompt Rescue of Unforunates 
Cut Off Repeatedly By 
Volume of Flame. 

A special from Victoria, British Co- 
lumbia, says: What is feared will 
prove one of the most horrible mine 
accidents in the history of the Domin- 
ion took plaoe at the Union mines, 
owned by the Welling Colliery Com- 
pany, of which James Dunsmuir, the 
premier of the province, is the princi- 
pal shareholder. Newspaper corres- 
pondents hurried by steamers and tug 
boats to the scene, 

As near as can be gathered, the ex- 
plosion took place about 11 o'clock in 
the forenoon in No. 6 shaft, situated 
in the village of Cumberland. There 
were sixty men in it when the explo- 
sion took place, and not one of them 
escaped. The explosion ignited the 
mine, wrecking the shaft from midway 
down to the bottom and filling it with 
a solid mass of rocks, earth and tim- 

The first explosion was followed by 
several more, while a dense volume of 
smoke pouring from the vent holes in- 
dicated that fire, as well as gaa, was 
doing destructive work below. 

Men of the morning shift in No. 5 
shaft organized a rescue party. No. 
5 and No. 6 are connected by a tunnel, 
and through this channel the attempt 
was made. They had not cut their 
way many yards through the debris 
when they encountered fire, which 
rendered the place untenable and 
obliged the party to desist. 

The message came back by telephone 
to the surface conveying the heart- 
breaking news to the relatives of the 
imprisoned men, whose urging was 
not necessary to induce the relief party 
to return to their apparently hopeless 
task. Overcome at last by smoke and 
gas, they reluctantly withdrew from 
No. 5 and commenced work on a long 
cut from No. 4, the only other means 
of reaching the men. Work on this 
was prosecuted with the greatest vigor 
until abatement of the fire in No. 5 
enabled them to once more return 

From the head office of the Duns- 
muir company at Victoria a special 
train proceeded at 1:15 o'clock to 

The last report of the inspector of 
mines pronounced the shaft as com- 
plying with regulations governing coal 



Maurice Thompson Passes Away Af- 
ter a Lingering Illness. 

Maurice Thompson died at his home 
in Crawfordsville, Ind., Friday morn- 
ing at 3 o'clock after a lingering ill- 
ness. Mr. Thompson was born in 
Fairfield, Ind., September 9, 1844, 
but syent his early life in the Georgia 
mountains, half way between Chatta- 
nooga and Atlanta, where his father 
was an extensive planter. He entered 
the confederate army in 1862 and did 
hard scout duty. 

After the war he became chief en- 
gineer of the L. C. and S.W. railroad, 
and while engaged in this work met 
Alice Lee, of Crawfordsville, whom he 
married. He then began the practice 
of law. 

In 1867 he explored Lake Okeecho- 
bee, Florida, listing its birds, animals 
and plants. From his Crawfordsville 
home Mr. Thompson sent forth the 
literary work which wai to win him 


Animal Keeper Torn Almost to Pieces 
By Infuriated Tiger. 

A sickening tragedy occurred at the 
roo in Indianapolis Friday morning. 
Albert Neilson, a keeper, 15 years 
old, entered the cage of a Bengal tiger 
by mistake and was attacked by tho 

A terrible struggle followed in which 
the keeper was torn in a hundred 

Redhod irons were applied to the 
bloodthirsty animal, but not until he 
was struck by seven pistol balls did 
he relase his hold on his victim. 

Neilson was finally dragged from 
the cage more dead than alive and was 
hurried to the city hospital, where he 
died as he was being carried in. 

The tiger was not fatally wounded. 

Neilson was in charge of the lion 
cubs, and it is supposed opened the 
tiger's cage by mistake.

Company of American Troops Get 
Best of Big Force of 

A Manila special says: Colonel Mar- 
cus D, Cronin and eighty men of the 
Thirty-third regiment have routed a 
band of insurgents at Candon, South 

Captain Green, with fifty men, met 
a force of the enemy at Santa Maria. 
Tho insurgents, who were commanded 
by Tinio, had two cannon and were 
strongly entrenched behind stonewalls 
on a steep mountain side. There waa 
hard fighting for three hours. When 
their ammunition was exhausted the 
Americans retired for a short distance. 
Then Tinio abandoned his position 
retreated southward. 

News of another important surren- 
der in the Philippines is contained in- 
the following dispatch reoeived at the' 
war department from General Mac- 

"ManiiiA. — Adjutant General, Wash- 
ington: One hundred and twelve rifles^ 
and 1,500 rounds of ammunition sur- 
rendered at Haganey February 13th,. 
mostly from supply secreted in con- 
tiguous swamps. The incident is im- 
portant as indicating a great reaction* 
favorable to the American interests in 
region of Bulacan heretofore one of 
the worst in Luzon. The result is 
accomplished exclusively by the long 
continued, intelligent and persistent 
efforts of officers of the Third United 
States infantry." 

According to mail advices from the 
Philippines, Captain Novico, the in- 
surgent officer who commands the 
band which captured Lieutenant Gil- 
more and his party of the Yorktown 
and held them captive for many 
months, has been sentenced to impris- 
onment for life, on the charge of hav- 
ing permitted one of Giimore's party 
to be buried alive. The victim was a 
sailor named McDonald, who was a 
burden to the Filipinos because of his 


Once More Efforts to Free Convicted 
Captain fleet Failure. 

A special from Leavenworth, Kas., 
says: Captain Oberlin M. Carter, 
United States army, serving a sentence 
in the federal prison at Fort Leaven- 
worth for defrauding the government 
on harbor contracts, has suffered an- 
oiher defeat in his attempt to secure 
his release. Judge Hook, in the 
United States district court Friday, 
refused to release the prisoner on bail 
and ordered that he be remanded to 
the penitentiary to await the action of 
the United States supreme court on 
the appeal in his habeas corpus case. 

Judge Hook held in substance that 
the judgment of the courtmartial was 
final unless set aside by the supreme 
court of the United States. 

There were nearly 300 people in the 
court room and along the corridors, 
and they manifested a great desire to 
get a look at the prisoner. This an- 
noyed Carter and he tried to avoid 
facing the spectators. 

After a brief argument by his attor- 
ney, A. H. Atwood, who contended 
that the court had the power to admit 
the prisoner to bail and the reading of 
two affidavits of physicians regarding 
Carter's health, Judge Hook handed 
down his decision. The physicians 
offered affidavits to the effect that the 
prisoner is a sufferer from neuras- 
themia, and if confined for any length 
of time will suffer mental collapse and 
become insane. 

In his affidavit Carter said he wanted 
to be released and stand a civil trial at 
Atlanta, Ga. 


Scandal In South Carolina Over Hiring 
Contracts In Vogue. 

A special from Spartanburg says: 
The state of South Carolina is con- 
fronted with a monumental scandal. 
The convict lease system has been 
used to cover up practical slavery, and 
Anderson county was the first to de- 
velop the fact. 

Judge Benet in a special charge to 
the grand jury at Anderson character- 
ized the saystem of labor practiced on 
some of the farms of the most promi- 
inent men of Anderson county as a 
shameful practice and instructed the 
grand jury to investigate. He has called 
a special term of court for March 7th 
to have full report. 


Central and Southern May Build Tlieij 
Own Depot In Atlanta. 

An Atlanta dispatch says: The 
Southern and Central railroads have 
refused the overtures of President 
Thomas, of the Nashville. Chattauoosa 
and St. Louif, to renew the agreement 
under which ihe state was to build a 
union passenger station in Atlanta to 
be leased for a term of years to the 
roads entering the cily. 

The aeeosid and most significant 
feature of the action on the Southern 
and Central now brought to lifjbt is 
that there iwo lines, closely associated 
in bus-in.'bs interests, are preparing to 
erect a depot of their own.

Montevallo, Ala. , Feb. 21, 1901. 

A bill has passed giving to Col- 
umbiana a dispensary. 

The -Alabama Beacon came to us 
last week a five column folio all 
home print. 

The bill making an advisory par- 
doning board for the Governor has 
become a law. 

Jefferson county gets more legis- 
lation this session of the General 
Assembly than any other county 
in the State. 

A fellow named Hull, teaching 
school near Guntersville, commit- 
ted an assault upon one of his pu 
pils, a 13-yenr old girl, one dav 
last week, and to prevent him be- 
ing mobbed Governor Samfot'd or- 
dered out two companies of State 
troops to protect him. He was 
taken to Birmingham and lodged 
in jail for sufe keaping. Scarcely 
had the excitement over that out- 
rage abated when the same county 
was again torn up by the commis- 
sion of a still greater crime, if such 
a thing. could be. Steve Cox was 
charged by his own daughter with 
being the father of her child. He 
is under arrest and guarded by 
State troops. With the frequent 
occurrence of such heinous crimes 
it is not to be wondered at that 
mob law is so frequent throughout 
the country. 

"Cloakroom Stories," from the 
pen of Champ Clark in the Mont- 
gomery Advertiser is one of the 
many excellent features of that 
great paper. 

Mrs. Nation is an unsolved 
problem to the police of Topeka. 
They have a hold upon her, but 
would like for some one to tell them 
how to let go. 

The uniform text book bill passed 
the house last Fritay by a vote of 
50 to 27, but the American Book 
Co., one of the greatest of all trust, 
seems to have gotten a grip on the 
senate aud it has been hung up for 
a time.

Take a drive from here to Calera 
and we 11 vouch for it you will say 
the roads are a disgrace to a civil- 
ized community. Montevallo must 
take an interest in this matter and 
see that the roads for a few miles, 
at least, out-of town are put in a 
passable condition. The return to 
business men in the way of trade 
will pay them to look into this 
matter. The present, deplorable 
condition of the roads makes it 
next to impossible for farmers to j 
come to town with a load. Mon 
tevallo's t'-ade would would be 
greatly increased if the roads were 

Parties who seem to be posted, 
say that the Brunswick aud Birm-

us, it behooves our business men 
and property owners to offer the 
road indue, meats to coma here. 
The intersection of the other two 
great lines Here is already a great 
inducement, and the right sort of 
work may bring us the road. — 
Chilton Reflector. 

We do not wish Maplesville any 
hard luck, but it is not likely the 
B. & B. road will go that far west, 
as Montevallo is one of the object- 
ive points of the road, Better move 
to Montevallo, brother, if you 
want to be on the Brvnswick & Bir-

abandoned and the merchar.dis was 
taken from the doomed stores. 

Seven houses were destroyed 
before the flames could be stopped. 
Every store house and each of W. 
M.Wilson & Bros .'a new* brick 
building were burned. Nearly all the 
goods and valuable fixtures were 
saved from i-ix of the stores in a 
more or less damaged conditio!?

Popwell, neariy all the stock lost 
Mrs. G. Tj. Phillips, stock saved; J 
E. Evans, stock saved; Moses 
Mims, stock saved. 

Two of the stores were vacated. 

So far as could be ascertained 

there is no insurance. 

It required heroic work to save 
the buildings across the street, but 
fortunately there was no wind and 
only fo- the new brick store, the 
stores of Wilson and Bro.. and W. 
I. Mullins and probably two res 
idences wou'd have been burned.

Clanton, Feb. lli. —(Special )- 
This morning soon after 3 o'clock 
lire was discovered in the store 
house of All' .fopwell and although 
the alarm was promptly given and 
the citizens responded and worked 
hard to put out the blaze before it 
reached other adjacent buildings, 
their efforts were unavailing. The 
fire spread rapidly, catching the 
houses on each side and soon all 
hopes of saving the houses were 

Sheffield has passed a curfew law 
that stipulates that on and after 
March 1. 1901, it shall bo unlawful 
for any child under- the age of 15 
years to idle or loiter uoon the 
streets or in any store or other 
public place after the hour of 8 
p. in. without the written consent 
of his parent or guardian and that 
any parent or guardian who know- 
ingly permits his child or ward to 
idle or loiter upon the streets or 
any other public place within the 
city after the hour of 8 p. m. shall 
be guilty of a misdemeanor aud 
shall, on conviction, be fined not 
less than five nor more than fifty 

In further of the command, 
"swear not at all," we urge the 
town authorites to p.iss a Cow Or- 
dinance for Centreville. There are a 
number of cows running loose on 
the public squre that are a nuisance 
and a source of annoyance to our 
country cousins. If they come to 
town in a wagon or vehicle and 
bring a little feed — 'a merciful man 
is merciful to his beast' — they had 
as well bring along an extra mtin 
to guard it from depredations of 
the Toivn Cow. The editor has a cow, 
and can afford the passage of such 
laws. It may compel some of us 
cow owners to either sell or starve 
them to death: but we will be wil- 
ling to risk it if such a law is pass- 
ed. Wo are sure our country 
friends, who do their trading in 
Centerville will approve such law, 
and they are the ones to please,

Reduced Rates on Southern. 

Striking measure of the progress 
of a century is given by The London 
Chronicle in a note ou the treat- 
ment of Lhe insane only one hundred 
years ago. Barbarity was the rule. 
Patients were exhibited as shows, 
loaded with chains, bt-aten with 
many stripes. But s : ill more signi- 
ficant of the ignorance of the age 
were the means taken to cure them 
by starting them back into sanity. 
Sometimes they were put ie revolv- 
ing swings that spun 100 times a 
minute. an ordeal that might un- 
settle even a well ballanced brain. 
Sometimes they were put in baths 
so constructed that the bottoms 
came out and plunged the occupanis 
into a socailed "bath of surprise" 
below. Sometimes they were sud- 
denly dropped from high towers in- 
to subterranean caverns.

ident of the society, was the presiding 
oflicer of the convention, and she l)ro' t

rulings. During her opening rddress 
she was frequently applauded by the

was really deplorable that there were 
so few marriages in .». ontevallo. Ner- 
tissa Ethel Bodkin, in responding, said 
she thought the deadlock in the inai- 
riage market, could be broken by the 
laying on of hands and hoped all the 
sisters would get a MAM before the 
convention adjourned. 

The roll call developed the fact that 
all the sisters were present except one. 
Her absence was explained by the 
statement that she was the plaintiff in 
a breach of pioiuiso suit. By the way, 
there was another absentee— she was 
on the trail of a widower. A song,

himself and his friends. 

' I believe,'' continued this great physician, "that the true way to heal ca- 
tarrh is to medicate the blood. This can be done only by powe^fuJ alteratives ' 
which act as blood purifiers. '' 

Betsy A. T.iaret.t, of Manistee, Manistee Co.. Mich., writes 

Dear Sirs : — For ten years I was a sufferer from general dcbn->y and chronio 
catarrh. My face was pale as death. I was weak and short of breath. I ^wilil' 
hardly walk. 1 was so dizzy and nad a ringing in my head all the time. My 
hands and feet were always cold. My appetite was very poor. On getting up 
in the morning, my head swam so I was often obliged to lie down again. I had 
awful pains in the small of my back. 1 had a continual feeling of tiredness. 
My muscular power was almost entirely gone, and I couldn't go half a dozen 
steps without stopping to rest, and often that much exercise caused me to have 
a pain in my side. It seemed as though the blood had left my veins. The doc- 
tors said my blood had all turned to Water. I had given up all hope of ever get- 
ting well. I tried Ihe best physicians in the state, but failed to get any relief. . 
My husband got me a bottle of Johnston's Sarsapariila.. I took it, and then I 
bought another. When these had been used, I was somewhat improved in 
health. I continued its use, and felt I was growing stronger; my sleep was re- 
freshing, and it seemed as if I could feel new blood moving through my veins. I 
kept on taking it, and now consider myself a well and rugged woman. I work 
oJl the time, and am happy. lain positive that the Sarsaparilla saved my life. 
r \'he sick headaches I have had since childhood, have disappeared, and my ca- 
t avrh has almost entirely left me. I cannot be too thankful for what Johnston's 
Sarsaparilia has done for me. I recommend all women who have sick head- 
aches to use your Sarnapa rilla.

Red, Rough Hands, Itching, Burning 
Palms, and Painful Finger Ends. 

Soak the hands on retiring in a strong, hot, 
creamy lather of CUTICURA SOAP. Dry, 
and anoint freely with CUTICURA, the great 
skin cure and purest of emollients. Wear, during 
the night, old, loose kid gloves, with the finger 
ends cut off and air holes cut in the palms,, For 
red, rough, chapped hands, dry, fissured, itching, 
feverish palms, with shapeless nails and painful 
finger ends, this treatment is simply wonderful, 
and points to a speedy cure of the most distress- 
ing cases when physicians and all else fail. 


I WAS troubled with hands so sore that when I put them in water the pain 
would near set me crazy, the skin would peel off, and the flesh would get hard 
ana breaic, then the blood would flow from at least fifty placK on eacn hand. 
Words never can tea the suffering I endured for three years. 

I tried at least eight doctors, but my hands were worse than when I commenced 
doctoring. I tried every old Granny remedy that was ever thought of without one 
cent s worth of good and could not even jret relief. 

I would feel so badly morning when 1 got up, to think that I had to 20 to work 
and stand pain for eicht or nine hours, that I often felt like eivin? uo mv ioh. 
whlA WU btbi boaW works of Ifefcl. Kerns,the leadin gfotig XI ot 
N. J., who wfll vouch for the truth of my sufferings. 

Before I could start to work, I would have to wrap each finger on both hands, 
ana then wear gloves, wfuch- I hated to do, for when I came to take them off, it 
would take two hours and the flesh would break and bleed. Some of my friends 
who had seen my hands would say, "If they had such hands they would have 
them amputated"; others would say "they would never work," and more would 
turn away in diszust. But thanks to Cuticura, the greatest of skin cures, it 
ended all my sufferings. 

' Just to think, after doctoring three years, and spending dollar after dollar durlne 
that time, Cuticura cured me. It has now been two years since I used it and I 
do not kaow what sore hands are. I never lost a day's work while I was usinz 
it or since, and I have been working at the same business, and in acids, etc.

No occupation in the world requires more perfect nerve force and physical 
strength than is demanded of its members t>y a modern fire, department. 
The members of this branch of the public service must be ready at all hours 
of the day or night, and in all degrees of heat, cold or exposure, to answer 
the call of the public, and protect life and property. At all times they must 
have bodily strength and a clear brain. Without this we would never hear 
of the wonderful feats of bravery and rescue performed by them. Nothing int 
the world will build up strength like Dr. Greene's Ncrvura blood and nerve 
remedy. Captain Thomson's strong statement, which we publish herewith, 
carries weight, and is echoed everywhere by those who rely on Dr. Greene's; 
Nervura blood and nerve remedy, when disease attacks them, or they get 
run down in health which is so easy at this season of the year. There is no 
medicine in the world which will ward off attacks of the fatal grip, which is 
now so prevalent, and there is nothing which will drive it away so quickly 
or reinvigorate the body as well after the grip, as this famous remedy. 
Captain Thomson, whose address is 2406 Lincoln St., North East, Minneapolis, 
Minn., says : 

" I am a great believer in the wonderful curative powers of Dr. 
Greene's Nervura Blood and Nerve Remedy. It has been used in my 
house for years as a body builder, strength restorer and general 
family medicine. It never fails to give beneficial results. It 
strengthens the nerves and purifies the blood. As a health builder, 
I believe there is no medicine equal to Dr. Greene's Nervura Blood 
and Nerve Remedy." 

Remember that Dr. Greene's Nervura Blood and Nerve Remedy is the pre- 
scription of a regular physician. Dr. Greene, who can be consulted absolutely 
free of charge either by mail or calling at his ofiice, 35 W. 14th St., New York

J. Frank Hogan Commits Suicide. 
J. Frank Hogan, a prominent con- 
tractor of Pratt City, committed sui- 
cide Saturday afternoon by shooting 
himself through the head -with a 
38-calibre revolver. Contrary to his 
usual habits, Mr. Hogau had been 
c 7 .rinking, and this is the only reason 
that can be assigned for his rash act. 
It is said that Mr. Hogan came home 
at noon Saturday and was a little 
quarrelsome and upbraided his family 
iu an unusual manner. A little later 
he became very angry and again 
abused his wife and children, threat- 
ening to commit suicide. Putting his 
pistol in his pocket, Hogau started 
to leave home, but his wife induced 
him to remain. He went into the 
bath room and presumably took an- 
other drink. Then walking into the 
dining room he arrested his wife's at 
tontion and placing the pistol to his 
head, pulled the trigger. Death was 
almost instantaneous. The coroner 
was called, but decided that the man 
hnd come to his death at his own 
hands, and deemed an investigation 
unnecessary. Prank Hogan, as he 
was known, was one of the best known 
contractors in the district, and his 
business affairs are in excellent con- 
dition. He leaves a wife and three 

Ten Miners Rescued. 
Aft6r G3 hours underground, for the 
greater part of tho time in water, ten 
of the thirteen negro miners caught in 
the Asylum mines by a tudden inrush 
of water last Wednesday, were reecued 
avt C o'clock Friday morning. When 
they reached the light they were near- 
Jy blind, and in on exhausted condi- 
tion. Seven of the ten were able to 
climb up the shaft unaided, the other 
three being brought up in the cage 
Tho threo that were not rescued are 
supposed to be dead, as their caps 
were found. The rescue of the men 
was received with shouts of joy by 
their friends and relatives, while the 
families of the other three are greatly 
depressed, having almost given up 

The mine is about clear of water 
now, aud searching parties are hunt- 
ing for the bodies of the three miners 
supposed to be dead. The men are 
being taken care of by the hospital 
authorities, and will not suffer any 
very serious effects from their hazard- 
ous experience. 

Odd Fellows' Home. 
Tho Odd Fellows of Alabama con- 
template building a homo for the 
widows and orphans of members of 
that order iu this state. A meeting 
with that end iu view was held in 
Fox hall, Birmingham, Saturday 
morning which was attended by 
representatives of fifteen of the twenty- 
seven lodges of that order in Jefferson 
county, Secretary H. C. Weaver of 
the Grand Lodge, come from Hunts- 
ville to attend the meeting and made 
an interesting talk, in which he urged 
the importance of such an institution. 
It was the consensus of opinion that 
the home should be established in the 
community offering the largest con- 
tribution towards it. If the scheme 
goes through it is probable that a 
small per capita assessment will be 
levied on each member of the order in 
Alabama, of which there are about 
5000. A committee consisting of L, 
J. Rittenberry, George Huddleston, 
James Sharpe, L. M. Buell and J. P. 
Brodie was appointed to formulate an 
address, which will be sent to all Odd 
Fellows in the state. 

New Coal Company. 
Another big coal mining company 
has been organized iu Jefferson coun- 
ty, the Valley Creek Coal Company. 
The organizers of this company are 
T. H. Aldrich, John F. Martin and T, 
H. Friel, and the capital stock is 
8200,000, divided into 2,000 shares of 
$100 each. The purpose of the com 
pany is to mine coal, ore and other 
minerals and to erect ooke ovens, 
furnaces, etc., for the manufacture of

An Attempted Assassination. 
A dastardly attempt at assassination 
was made near the Alabama Great 
Southern depot in Tuscaloosa about 
G o'clock Sunday evening, when an 
unknown party called John Lewis, a 
respectable working man, to his front 
door and shot him iu the face with « 
32-calibre pistol. Lewis conducts a 
wood yard in the rear of hi3 home. 
There is no clue to tho perpetrator of 
the deed, The physician in charge 
of Lewis thinks he will possibly get 
well, as the ball did not strike in a 
vital spot, although it is a very dan- 
gerous wound. 

It Will Have a Total Capitalize, 
tion of $1,100,000,000, 

The steel combination plan was 
consummated at a conference in J. P. 
Morgan's office late Saturday after- 
noon and an official announcement 
was made Monday from the office of 
Morgan & Co., to the effect that the 
Carnegie company, the Federal Steel 
company, the National Tube company, 
the American Steel and Wire compa- 
ny, the American Tin Plate company, 
the National Steel company, the 
American Steel Hoop company and the 
American Sheet Iron company are to 
be combined in one concern which is 
to issue its stock in return for theirs, 
the valuation having been determined 
upon the assets and the earning 
powers of tho respective corporations 
thus merged. 

The combination, it is understood, 
will be called the United States Con- 
solidated Steel company. It will 
have a total capitalization of $1,100,- 
000,000. Of this $300,000,000 will be 
rive per cent. general mortgage 
bonds, $400,000,000 will bo seven per 
cent stock and $400,000,000 will be 
common stock. The charter of tho 
company which has been prepared un- 
der the special guidance of William 
Nelson Cromwell, who promoted the 
National Tube company, will be filed 
at Trenton, N. J., Monday. 

The American Bridge company, 
which is known as a Morgan concern 
and has an authorized capital of $33,- 
000,000 preferred and $35,000,000 
common stock, is left out of the con 
solidation, although its absorption 
was contemplated in the original plan 
Tho reason given was that the Btock 
is listed in London and that it might 
not be easy to acquire it. 

The Lake Superior consolidated 
iron inine3, the Rockefeller iron ore 
properties, including the Mesaba 
range, which passed a few days ago, it 
is understood, to the Morgan combi- 
nation, will not go immediately into 
the new United States Consolidated 
Steel company. It is thought quite 
likely that the Lake Superior concern 
maybe turned over to the great com- 
bination at a later date.

II sidfnce Robbed For tbe Third, 

For the third time in three months 
the residence of Mrs. J. T. Nixon, 
Fourth avenue and Twenty-first 
street, Birmingham, was entered 
Saturday night by a burglar and some 
of the inmates were robbed of valuable 
belongings. Tho house, which was 
formerly the residence of the late Dr. 
H. M. Caldwell, is a large aud roomy 
Structure and is kept by Mrs. Nixon 
as a fashionable boarding house. In 
addition to Mrs. Nixon's numerous 
outside boarders, ten or a dozen of 
leading young men of Birmingham 
occupy rooms in the house. Saturday 
morning it was discovered that some 
burglar had robbed each of two of the 
guests of a valuable gold watch, aud 
had rifled the pockets of others, 
though failing to secure much that 
was of value. Investigation showed 
that the burglar had plauted a short 
five-round ladder against the window 
of a bath room at the rear of the 
house, had forced the fastening!) of 
the window by some thin and sharp 
instrument, and by such means en- 
tered the house.

Veteran Who Invited Him 
to Memphis. 

Amendments to Naval Bill. 

Among the senate amendments to 
the naval bill, on which there was 
disagreement, were the following: Re- 
ducing from $500,000 to $300,000 
the contingent account of the navy de- 
partment. Detailing commanding of- 
ficers of the navy to be assistant chiefs 
of the bureaus of the navy depart-

Recently there was published a com- 
munication from Lieut. T. W. Allen, 
of Collierville, Tenn., in which he 
suggested that 1000 or more of For 
ast's veteran cavalry be organized aud 
mounted in order to participate in the 
reunion of Confederate veterans to 
take place iu Memphis next May. 
Mr. Allen, who was a member of 
General Forest's command during tht 
war, sent the article to President Mc- 
Kinley, writing him a few lines 
urging him to come to Memphis on 
the occasion of the reunion, and the 
following is the reply:

Gen. AVhceler Not a Canflijat \ 
A personal friend of General Wheeler 
has received a letter from the General, 
who is in New York, in reply to a let- 
ter of inquiry as to the reported can- 
didacy of General Wheeler for Con- 
gress to succeed Judge Richardson 
the present incumbent. The state- 
ments sent out from Washington were 
unwarranted aud without authority, 
and the story had no foundation of 
fact. General Wheeler has beea in 
New York some weeks with his 
daughters, and the clipping sent him 
by his friend was the first Information 
he had of the story. General Wheeler 
stated to a close persona! friend some 
weeks ago that he was a retired army 
fficer, and did not intend to get into 
scramble for a political office. He 
said he appreciated what the peoplo 
of the Eighth district had done for 
him, and he was grateful to them for 
the honor bestowed upon him iu the 
past. He is out of politics, but is stil 
interested in the district, and has been 
very active in using his influence with 
old friends in both houses in behalf of 
the Tennessee river appropriation and 
other bills that affect the district and 
the state, as well as the south.

The Kearsarge Will Not Go North. 

Secretary Long says that the battle 
ship Kearsarge will not go north for 
the repair of her damaged 13 inch 
guns until after the cruise of the 
North Atlantic squadron is over 
The injury could be repaired, he said, 
by placing a new lining in that por 
tion of the gun muzzle that has been 
widened by the premature shell ex 
plosion. The work of repairing the 
gun proper, probably will bo done at 
the Washington yard, tho Kearsarge 
coming up to Norfolk and having the 
damaged gun conveyed to the navy 
yard on a lighter. 

Substitute for Mining Bill. 
Senator Stewart from the committee 
on mines and mining ha3 reported a 
substitute for the mining bill here- 
tofore introduced by himself. The 
substitute prohibits any person from 
locating a mining claim, lode or plaoer, 
for any other person, corporation or 
association. The substitute also 
authorizes the purchase from the gov 
erument of land believed to be oil

Minister Cong r Is Coming Home, 

Minister Conger will loave Pekin 
immediately for this country on sizty 
days' leave cf absence. Commissioner 
Eockhill will have lull power to con- 
duct the negotiations now in progress. 
Mr. Conger returns of his own inita- 
tive. For some time past he has been 
anxious to get back to Iowa, but tho 
opportunity has not presented itself 
until now. Now that the foreign 
ministers have satisfactorily settled 
the question of punishments of the 
offending Chines9 officials and a new 
station is to be taken up, it will be 
easy to pass the negotiations into Mr. 
ReckuiU's hands without sacrificing 
any points. It was Mr. Conger's own 
suggestion that Mr. Rockhill be

The fruit growers of Alabama are 
congratulating themselves over the 
present cold snap, as it means a great- 
er degree of protection to their crops. 
Had it been a week longer coming 
th re is no doubt but the crops would 
have been injured to a considerable 
degree, especially the poach crop, as 
the planters report that the buds had 
already commenced Ewelling, which 
if contiimad a couple of weeks, at the 
most, would have rendered them as 
susceptible to the cold weather aa 
they would have been in a more ad- 
vanced stage. The swelling of tho 
buds has been stopped and the crops 
are set back to a safer period of the 

During the past week the people 
have experienced the coldest weather 
they have felt in two winters, and in- 
dications are that tho present cold 
snap will last for several days yet. 
Instead of injuring the trees, the 
opinion is that tho cold weather has 
been the best thing for the crop that 
has happened iu year?.

Negro Cremated. 
Tho jail at Aiphia, Ga., was burned 
Wednesday night aud a negro prisoner 
was ei'6'nnted in it. The negro had 
been arrested for fighting with another 
sawmill hand, and opinion is divided 
as to whether friends of the negro 
with whom he had quarreled fired the 
structuro or whether the prisoner 
himself turned inctudiary iu an effort 
to OEcapa. 

Evidences accumulate that the abor- 
igines of North and South America 
were either of Asiatic origin or of 
mixed race, with a strong tnfusion of 
Chinese and other Oriental blood.

taken up as unfinished business. 
Senator lost by a vote of fourteen

take it off the adverse calendar. The 
motion was lost, by a vote of fourteen

The New York World suggests a 
whole string of new verbs from the 
names of men who have become fa 
mous in special lines. Thus, to 
"morganeer" would need no expla- 
nation among followers of recent 
coal j steel and railroad deals; to say 
that a college was "rockefellereci" 
would convey not quite the' mean- 
ing of endowed, but something like 
it, while to say that a library was 
'•enruegied" wouid carry a similar 
idea. Other verbs suggested by 
the World are "to nation" as in the 
case of saloons, '-to howellize" as in 
the case of literature, and to 
"to hannarate" as in the case of 
politics. The Savanah News thinks 
that there is, however, one verb 
which the World seems to have over- 
looked. It is "to pulitzerize, " as in 
the case at present of a considerable 
part of the New York newspaper 

People who must have something 
stronger than water to drink should 
be careful about the substitute they 
adopt. Some of them are as deceit- 
ful as a mule, while others are as full 
of danger as an unloaded gun. 
About the drunkest crowd we ever 
saw was composed of five men who 
drank six bottles of some b-and of 
stomach bitters. The^ were drunk 
from sole to crown, through and 
through, inside and out and all the 
way round. And the worst of it 
was that the drunk held on to them 
like poverty or the itch, and they 
were days getting over it. Lately 
we have seen it stated that the 
manufacturers of a certain brand of 
Jamaica ginger use wood alcohol 
and tli at drinking itcauses blindness 
— not blind drunk, but actual blind- 
ness. It is a favorite stimulant 
with some who do not want to use

borne of the Eastern papers have 
taken up the discussion of the ques- 
tion whether 1 'the United States is 
or lire." A t a far away and remote 
period "they" were, but now it is 
K Plnribus Unura, liberally inter- 
oreted, one unit composed of many 
decimals, a fact disputed by none 
except for selfish political purp oses, 
or by archaic theorists. The one- 
ness of United States is apparent 
in the Constitution and is recog- 
nized by the mass of people- With- 
out a oneness we'd have no nation- 
ality, and to deny one is to deny 
the other, and grammatical distinc- 
tion have nothing to do with the is- 
ness of the ease. Tom Jefferson 
drew up the compact full of that in- 
tent and purpose, but like a promi- 
nent North Alabama lawyer who 
drew up an "unbreaka >le" will for 
a client and af ter'vard-i accepted a 
fee to contest the will. Thomas 
contested the intents and purposes 
of tue Constitution by resolutions 
engineered through the legislatures 
of Kentucky and Virginia upon 
which the rest of the country sat 
with a mighty set, and the oneness 
received its set. The United S'ates

Yesterday was a birthday for Miss 
Jatie Lawrence, and to aid her in cel-

Last Saturday morning the ground 
was covered with snow which had fail-

It was the first of the season and the 
young people had a great time snow- 
balling. The beautiful disappeared in 
a few hours, however. 

A number of farmers have commend-

on the roads question. One of them 
said lo us: "The tanners in this sec-

The business men of Montevallo are 
glad to learn that Mr. Iliiridnbottom. 
who has been assistant agent for the 
Southern for several months, has been 
promoted and is now agent. Since the 
transfer of Mr. Lee to Talladega Mr. 
Higsrinbottoiu has virtui lly been in 
charge of the office, and through his 
courteous and accommodating mantn r 
has won the esteem of all who have 
had business dealings with him. Wi 
believe the Southern has made no mis 
take in the appointment. 

A traveling man, who registered at 
'•he St. George hotel, recently, said a 
fashionable club in Birmingham was 
doing more toward ruining the youn^ 
men of that city than anyth ng else ; 
that more than one young man's down-

A Wise and Venerable Uoctor Talks about Advanced Science: 

In a' leading 1 hotel, in --. {.-"eat city, a famous and aged physician was convers- ~

"I wish,. Doctor," said the traveling- man, "that you/ would tell vis abou* "• 
catarrh. I have had it for years, and I am thoroughly discouraged." 

The Doctor answer:. "Catarrh, like diphthei-ia, consumption, typhoicV? 
fever, and a host of otl>«-: diseases, is the result of a microbe invading, the bl'odd 0, 
Rnd attacking specially the mucous membrane. This foul and most dispubtinfj^

uf many intellectual treats, from fear of the disagreeable" odor 1 arising from ea- " 
tarrhal affections. In its worst phase, the patient becomes loathsome both to" 
himself and his friends. 

" I believe." continued this great physician, "that the true way to heal ca- 
tarrh is to medicate the blood. This can be done only by powe-iai alteratives ' 
which iict as blood purifiers." 

Betsy A. Marett, of Manistee, Manistee. Co., Mich., writes. 

Dear Sirs : — For ten years I was a sufferer from general debility and chronic " 
catarrh. My face was pale as death. I was weak and short of breatn. Ic°"Ll" 
hardly walk, I was so dizzy and had a ringing in my head all the time. My 
hands and feet were alvs ays cold. My appctite'was very poor. On getting up . 
in the morning', my head swam so I was often obliged t6 lie down again. I had 
awful pains in the Email of my back.- 1 had a continual feeling of tiredness. 
My muscular power was almost entirely gone, and I couldn't go half & dozeu ' 
steps without stopping to r st, and often that much exercise caused me to have ' 
a pain in my side. It seemed as though the blood had left my veins. The doc- 
tors said my blood had all turned to water. I had given up all hope of ever get- 
ting well. I tried the best physicians in the state, but failed to get any relief. 
My husband got me a bottle of Johnston's Sarsaparilla. I took it, and then I 
bought another. When these had been used, I was somewhat improved in 
health. I continued its use. and felt I was growing stronger; my sleep was re- ,' 
freshing, and it seemed as if I could feel new blood moving through my veins. I 
kept on taking it, and now consider myself a well and rugged woniau. I work 
ali the time, and am happy. I am positive that the Sarsaparilla saved my life, 
'"'.'he sick headaches I have had since childhood, have disappeared, and my ca- ' 
' arrh has almost entirely left me. I cannot be too thankful for what Johnston's ' 
Barsaparilia has done for me. I recommend all women who have sick head- 
aches to use .your vSarsaparilla.

"I cannot say enough in regard to Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound. 
It has done me more good than all the doctors. I have been troubled with 
female weakness in its worst form for about ten years. I had leucorrhoea 
and was so weak that I iiould not do my housework. 

I also had falling of the womb and inflammation of the womb and ovaries, 
and at menstrual periods I suffered terribly. At times my back would ach« 
very hard. I could not lift anything or do any heavy work ; was not able tc 
stand on my feet lonar at a time. My husband spent hundreds of dollars foi 
doctors but they did me no good. My husband's sister wrote what the Vege- 
table Compound had done for her, and wanted me to try it, but I did not then 
think it would do me any good. After a time, I concluded to try it, and I can 
truly say it doe3 all that is claimed for it. Ten bottles of the Vegetable Com- 
and seven ppckage3 of Sanative Wash have made a new woman of me, I have 
had no womb trouble since taking the fifth bottle. I weigh more than I have 
in years ; can do all my own housework, sleep well, have a good appetite, and 
now feel that life is worth living. I owe all to Lydia 13. Pialiliam's Veg- 
etable Compound. I feel that it has saved my life and would not be with- 
out it for anything. I am always glad to recommend it to all my sex, for 1 
know if they will follow Mrs. Pinkham's directions, they will be cured." 

Gratefully yours, Mrs. Annie Thompson, South Hot Springs, Ark.

flowed very badly 
until a year 
then my stomach 
and lungs got so 
bad, I suffered terribly ; the blood 
went up in my lungs and stomach, and 
I vomited it up. I could not eat 
scarcely anything. I cannot tell what 
I suffered with my head. My hus- 
band got me a bottle of Lydia E. Pink- 
ham's Vegetable Compound, and before 
I had taken half of it I began to im- 
prove, and to-day I am another woman. 
Mrs. Pinkham's medicine has saved my 
life. I cannot praise it enough. "

Tiie Palm Givsn to Dr. Greons's 

That Grand Jury, the People, Have So 

Used by Hundreds of Thousands in 
Spring as a Blood Medicine. 

Dr. Greene's Nervura blood and nerve 
remedy is indeed "The World's Great 
Spring Medicine. it has come to be 
recognized by almost everybody as the 
best possible spring medicine to take, 
and hundreds of thousands of our 
people use it during tho trying spring 
months, to tone up anew the relaxed 
nerves and re-invigorate and enrich 
the blood. 

A spring medicine is a necessity if 
one wishes to keep in perfect health 
and vigor during the changes from 
winter to summer. This grand spring 
tonic, this perfect spring medicine, Dr. 
Greene's Nervura blood and nerve 
remedy, Is exactly what the system 
needs at this season. It not only 
purines, but makes rich, red blood; it 
not only strengthens and Invigorates 
the nervous system, but re-energizes 
and revitalizes the nerves by feeding 
them with renewed nerve force and 
power. It is not only an aid to diges- 
tion, but it creates a regular, natural 
and healthy action of the bowels, liver, 
kidneys, which in the spring are al- 
ways sluggish and inactive. 

In fact, it Is Just what people need 
to make them well and keep them well 
during these months, so threatening 
to the health of all, and when it is con- 
sidered that Dr. Greene's Nervura 
blood and nerve remedy is made en- 
tirely from pure, health-giving vege- 
table remedies, and that people give 
it more testimonial^ of cure than any 
other remedy on earth, no one can 
doubt that it is the very best spring 
remedy for everybody to use. 

Mr. Gustave Lelbach, of 337 First 
street, Jersey City, N. J., says: — 

"I was troubled with sick headaches, 
and could not sleep on account of the 
pains in my head. I was suffering 
night and day with dyspepsia, could 
not eat anything, my stomach would 
sour so. I had to starve myself to have 
any ease. I had to give up work at 
last, I was so nervous and miserable, 
and I was falling away In flesh so that 
my friends hardly knew me. I tried 
several remedies, but without avail. 
At last someone recommended Dr. 
Greene's Nervura blood and n2-ve rem- 
edy. I tried one bottle r-'-id began to 
improve. I started in to eat all right; 
then I picked up my health; my head- 
aches disappeared, and my weakness 
and sour stomach went away. I used 
three bottles, and could sleep all night 
with ease; I used 6ix bottles, and felt 
like a new man. I can now do a hard 
day's work without any trouble, and I 
am as happy a bird in spring. I was 
so miserable, always suffering, always 
in pain, bui now i am like a new man." 

Use Dr. Greene's Nervura blood and 
nerve remedy this opring, for it is the 
discovery and prescription of a well- 
known physician, .Dr. Greene, of 35 
W. 14th St., New "iork City, who is 
responsible for its beneficial action, 
and who can be consulted free of

The unspeakable Turk once more 
exhibits to the world his demoniac 
fanaticism. From Salonica comes the 
report that hundreds of Christians in 
Macedonia have been massacred by 
Mohammedans in tho village of Bltuch, 
in northern Albania, a horde of Mo- 
hammedans crucified every Christian 
male in the place, pinning them to the 
treec with stakes driven through the 
hands and feet. Many of the women 
were outraged and all were carried off 
to Mohammedan harems. Children 
were chopped up before their parents' 
eyes. At Gruma, south of Bltuch, wom- 
en were violated in front of their hus- 
bands and fathers. The men were ter- 
ribly mutilated, having their ears, fin- 
gei-3, toes and limbs cut off. Many 
children were drowned. 

At Ribaritz the entire population was 
massacred after the victims' flesh had 
been sliced off. At Binashkia a bon- 
fire was made of twenty Christians.

Alabama Cotton Mills Will Cur- 
tail Production.

Leeds—Other State News. 

State University Coal Land Deal. 

Progress haa been made toward the 
settlement of the controversy between 
the State University and the Sloss- 
Sheffield Steel and Iron Company with 
regard to the four thousand acres of 
Walker county coal land sold the 
Sloss-Shefiield Company,for which the 
company paid the state $50,000, the 
University subsequently repudiating 
the sale as illegal and void . The lower 
house of the general assembly has 
passed a bill empowering the Univer- 
sity to refund the money to the com- 
pany. This was done in accordance 
with a plan whereby the University 
is to pay back the money, the Sloss- 
ShefHeld Company is to return the 
lands and then each party is to ex- 
change neighboring tracts of lands so 
as to body up the holdings of each. 
-Dr. Eugene Smith and Colonel T. H. 
Aldrich are now Ht work upon the de- 
tails of the proposition, which the 
adoption of the bill to refund makes 

Cotton Mill Output. 

The following Alabama cotton mills 
have curtailed their output in accord- 
ance with the resolution adopted at 
the meeting of southern spinners held 
in Charlotte, X. C, last week: 

West Huntsville Cotton Mills, 6,000 
spindles; right work stopped since 
January 1; w ill continue closed until 
the market improves. 

Woodstock Cotton Mills, 0,250 spin- 
dles; stop night work and 25 percent, 
of day work; to continue indefinitely. 

Alabama Cordage Company, 1,000 
jpindles, have curtailed indefinitely. 

Cherry Cotton Mills, 11,000 spin- 
dles; curtailed CO per cent, since Jan- 
uary 1, to continue indefinitely. 

Coosa Manufacturing Company, 
15,408 spindles; stopped night work 
January 21, and will never run nights 

Total number of spindles tffected, 

Steiner Bros. Will Se k Larger Field 
The banking house of Steiner Bros., 
familiar by name to all Alabamians, 
will soon become a familiar institu- 
tion in New York. For some time 
past the Steiners have contemplated 
opening a New York office and mak- 
ing it their headquarters, and now 
their plans in that direction are about 
to be consummated. They are nego- 
tiating for suitable quarters on Ex- 
change Place, and as soon as these are 
secured Sigfried Steiner will remove 
with his family to New York, to be 
followed a little later by B. Steiner 
with his family. The Steiner bank in 
Birmingham will be continued. It 
will be conducted on the same broad 
and liberal lines as heretofore and in 
connection with the Now York house 
will be in a position to vastly increase 
its business. 

Two new industries, a lumber mill, 
an enterprise of Mr. G. W. Stegal, of 
Huntsville, and the Graber dimension 
mill to work timber into material for 
furniture factories, have been located 
at Decatur. 

Prospecting for Oil, 

Aotual prospecting for oil is being 
prosecuted in this State. Several 
syndicates have been formed and now 
have experts in different sections of 
North Alabama looking for deposits 
of oil. A number of places have every 
indication of containing vast oil fields 
underneath the surface, and those who 
have studied tho conditions in Ala- 
bama and othor states where oil has 
been found, assert that it will be but 
a matter of a ehort time until this 
product is added to Alabama's de- 
veloped resurces. 


For Lands in Lauuerdale County. Re- 
garded as Tests. 

A suit has been filed in tht circuit 
court in Lauderdale county by W. L. 
Douglass, Will Jackson and the 
Douglass heirs against the United 
States government for possession of 
lands now used by the government as 
a canal and railroad. The suit waB 
for $5,000 in each case. The govern- 
ment has had possession of the land 
for twenty years, and it has never been 
condemned nor paid for. Several 
other land holders have asked for re- 
lief by bills in congress, which have 
been hanging fire for years without 
any ohance of passing. These cases 
are considered test cases, and if suc- 
cessful may lead up to other suits 
being brought. 

It's Now a Three-sided Affair. 

Col, E. L. Higdon, former comman- 
der of the Third Regiment, Alabama 
National Guard, and later colonel of 
the First Alabama Volunteers in the 
Spanish-American war, will be en- 
thusiastically urged for the former 
position made vacant by the resigna- 
tion of Col. Tom O. Smith. Officers 
of tho Birmingham military com- 
panies state that Colonel Higdon will 
have their unanimous support. They 
state, in fact, that this has already 
been agreed upon by every officer in 
Birmingham entitled to vote. 

Maj, T. T. Huey, of Bessemer, is 
also a candidate, and has been pledged, 
without solicitation, the support of 
the Auniston, Oxford and Gadsden 

Capt. J. B. Morson, of Troop D., 
Birmingham, is also a candidate for 
the position. 

Industries at L:;eds. 

It is now thought that tho proposed 
cotton mill, which it is believed will 
be located in Cahaba Valley, will be 
built at Leeds. Promoters are still at 
work on the proposition. 

It is not believed that the Castle- 
man branch of the Southern Railroad 
will be torn up, as was at one time 
contemplated. The prospects are that 
the Sloss Company's investigations of 
the brown ore fields, to which the road 
leads, will rosult in its retention pend- 
ing result of these investigations. 

The Huntsville Company for Higdon] 
The ofDcars of Company F, 
Third regiment Alabama National 
Guard, of Huntsville, will support the 
candidacy of ex-Col. E. L. Higdon 
for the colonelcy of the regiment, 
Vice Col. Tom O. Smith, resigned. 
Colonel Higdon was with the regi- 
ment during the Spanish-American 
war when the regiment was known as 
the First Alabama. At the close of 
the war when the regiment was con- 
fronted by the question of going to 
Cuba to act as police or be mustered 
out, Colonel Higdon agreed to leave 
the matter to the enlisted men. who 
were in favor of the latter course. 
This made the Colonel immensely 
popular with the men. 

Hnvc Gone to Washington. 
The Birmingham Rifles left over 
the Southern Railway at 4:10 o'clock 
Saturday afternoon for Washington to 
attend the inauguration of President 
McKinley Monday. Capt. C. I. Led- 
better was in command of the compa- 
ny, and had four lieutenants and 
thirty-seven non commissioned offi- 
cers and privates with him. 

Cottage iiurned at Florence. 
A cottage occupied by H. P. Hur- 
ley was burned Saturday morning and 
was a total loss. The loss of the house 
is $800, and was insured for $500. 
The household goods were insured for 
$400, and the loss is $800. 

Jnllge Chambers to Get a Place. 
Judge W. L. Chambers, of Alabama, 
will be a member of the Spanish War 
Claims Commission. President Mc- 
Kinley has announced his determina- 
tion to appoint him on this commin- 
sion in recognition of li is services as 
Chief Justice of Samoa and hie record 
on the policies of the administration. 
The delegation of Lousiann Congress- 
man oalled on the President in the 
interest of a candidate from that State 
for the commissin and Mr. McKinley 
told them he could not give the South 
but one member and he had deter- 
mined to name Judge Chambers. 

Only Two Companies Left. 
Carrying out tho policy inaugurated 
by the State Department when it 
changed its military force in China 
into a legation guard, the War De- 
partment has sent orders to General 
Chaffeo to still further reduce his 
force. The goneral now has under his 
command about 1,800 men, composed 
of Troops I, K, L andM, Sixth United 
States Cavalry: Battery F, Fifth 
United States Artillery, and the Ninth 
Infantry. Although nominally a 
legation guard, General Chaffee's 
force is of rather formidable offensive 
quantity, and not desirous of retnining 
an unnecessary menace to the Chinese 
court and in order to hold out in- 
ducements for its early return to 
Pekin, the United States government 
eorne time ago determined upon a 
further reduction of the American 
force, and the orders have gone for- 

All Vagrants to Be Arrested, 
Chief of Police Manley, of Atlanta, 
Ga. , has issued a special order to ar- 
rest all vagi ante, white and black, and 
this work was undertaken at daylight 
Friday mornir.g. The recent numer- 
ous cases of highway robbery, in 
which the victims were white women 
and the robbers negro men, and which 
culminated Thursday in the brutal at- 
tack upon Mrs. Charles A. Buchanan, 
caused the police to take this action. 
Four negroes suspected of the Buch- 
anan outrage have been arrested. 
One of them, who told conflicting sto- 
ries and said lie had heard of the 
crime, was removed to the county 
jail for safe-keeping last night. The 
others are at the police-station. 

One Burglar Shot Dc-ail. Another Cap- 

At Claysville, Pa., Town Constable 
John Neely shot and killed one burg- 
lar and captured another with the aid 
of a posse Friday, after a desperate 
fight. The burglars robbed half a 
dozen houses Thursday night, and 
were located Friday morning. One 
attacked the constable with an iron 
bar and the other shot at him. Neely 
drew his revolver and shot and killed 
one instantly. The other fled but was 
captured later. Neely was badly hurt 
in the fight. 

Mrs Nation Back at Topeka.. 
Mrs. Carrie Nation, the Kansas joint 
smasher, returned to Topeka Thurs- 
day night from Illinois, where she 
went to edit a newspaper for a day. 
She went at once to the county jail, 
where she gave herself over to custo- 
dy. The $2,000 bond which Mrs. Na- 
tion was required to give before she 
left the city waa cancelled. Her trial 
comes up at the April term of the Dis- 
trict Court. 

McKinley Can't Attend Reunion. 

A delegation of leading citizens of 
Memphis, Tenn., headed by Senator 
Bate and Senator-elect Carmack, 
called at the White House Friday and 
invited the president to attend the re- 
union of United Confederate Veterans 
to be held in Memphis on May 28, 29 
and 30. The prosident expressed his 
regret that arrangoments already had 
been made which would prevent him 
from visiting Memphis on this occa- 
sion, but he hoped to do so before the 
summer was over. 

Bank Clearings 1'or February 
The clearings of the banks of Bir- 
mingham for the mouth of February 
were $3,981,863.37 against $3,167,- 
705.87 in February, 1900, a gain for 
this year of $814,157.87. Tho gain in 
January was also a good one. It has 
been eighteeu months since any one 
month has failed to show an increase 
over the same month a year pre- 

Noted Moonshiner Caught, 
Deputy Revenue Collector H. C. 
Hart, of Kuoxville, with a posse from 
Cleveland, Tenn., at 3 o'clock Thurs- 
day morning raided a moonshine still 
six miles from Benton in Polk county 
and captured Garrett Headen, one of 
the most noted moonshineis and d s 
peradoos in the south, together with 
1,000 gallons of mash, a large quantity 
of whiskey and twenty-five gallons of 
beer. The posse found Headen at 
work when they urrived and his sur- 
prise Wiis complete. Tho location of 
this still has been known to the author- 
ities for a long time. 


Four Trainmen Killed and Several 
Wounded in a Disastrous 
Railroad Wreck. 

A disastrous freight wreck ocourred 
one and a half miles west of Lenoir 
City, Tenn.. at an early hour Satur- 
day morning. Both trains were 
through freights and were running at 
a high rate of speed and had a head- 
end collision. Four trainmen were 
killed and several wounded. Not a 
member of the crew escaped. The 
doadare: OF. Madden, engineer; 
J. M. Stephenson, fireman; Joseph 
Copeland, conductor; W. L. Cash, 
foreman. The injured : L. M. Vance, 
engineer; J. M. Snyder, conductor; 
Thomas Colbert, colored, brakeman ; 
J. M. Dean, flagman; P. L. Williame, 
flagman; Peter Hurley, brakeman; 
John Stars, section foreman, all from 
Knoxville except Hurley, who lives at 
Cleveland, Tenn. Colbert will die. 
Orders to pass at Lenoir City and 
later received orders to pass at Lou- 

The cause of the wreck, it is said, 
was due to the east-bound failing to 
run under the second order and ex- 
pecting to meet the west-bouud train 
at Lenoir City. 


Case Aginst the Confederate Vet- 
eran is Ended. 

In the Federal Court at Nashville, 
Tenn., Saturday afternoon, the jury 
in the Underwood-Cunningham libel 
suit was discharged, having failed to 
reach an agreement. The suit grew 
out of a publication in the Confeder- 
ate Veteran, of which defendant, Sum. 
ner A. Cunningham, is editor and pro- 
prietor. Because of certain state- 
ments in an article in that paper con- 
cerning the Battle Abbey fund, Gen. 
John C. Underwood sued Cunning- 
ham for $50,000 damages nnd made 
the Methodist Publishing House of 
Nashville party to the suit, that con- 
cern having done the press work for 
the Veteran. The jury was unani- 
mous in the opinion that damages 
should be awarded plaintiff, but dis- 
agreed on the question of holding the 
publishing house jointly liable, four 
members refusing to consent to its 
release. Tho measure of damages 
considered by the jury was $10,000. 


Sparks from Locomotive Set Pond 
of Oil Ablaze. 

News from Beaumont, Tex., states 
that about 1 o'clock Saturday sparks 
from a locomotive set fire to the oil in 
a large pond near the great Lucas 
geyser, and in a short time the pond 
or lake was >l seething mass of flames. 
The fire spread to the oil banked up 
alongside the railroad track and the 
flames increased in fury. The big 
boarding house, which housed some 
eighty workmen, fell a victim to the 
flames and the occupants lost a great 
many of their effects. Beyond the 
loss of the boarding houses and the 
fences the financial loss is so far light, 
as the oil is not of any commercial 

Killed hy Live Wire. 
Charles Bellew, aged 12, living at 
Kokomo, Ind., was killed by a live 
wire Sunday. With four other boy? 
he was climbing on top of Main street 
bridge and was bantered to touch the 
trolley wire, whicn he did. Immedi- 
ately 2200 volts of electricity passed 
through him, and the body fell lifeless 
to the floor below. 

Two Men Fatally Injured By Falling 
From a Balloon. 
Professor Coleman and Clarence 
Boyne, both from near Brunswick, 
Mo., were fatally injured at El Reno, 
O. T., Suturday by falling from a 
balloon while attempting to make a 
double ascension. When about 
seventy-five feet from the ground the 
balloon tore away and both men were 
hurled to the ground with frightful 
force. Coleman's back is broken, as 
are Boyue's shoulder and legs. A 
traveling man waa badly injured by 
being struck by one of the men and a 
small boy was seriously hurt in the 
same way. 


The Accused American Contrctor 
Made a $10,000 Cash Bond. 

By direction of General MacArthur, 
D. M. Carman, the American con- 
tractor who was takeu into custody 
February 0, charged with aiding the 
Filipino insurgents, has been released 
on $10,000 cash bail, Major Kulp, 
medical officer, certified that Carman 
was a very sick man and that further 
confinement was likely to cause his 
death. Brigadier General Davis says 
the case was carefully considered be- 
fore the release was ordered, as it 
established the precedent here of 
permitting persons charged with aid- 
ing and abetting the Insurgents lo be 
at large. Carman is under surveillance 
in Manila. Hois fllowed no privileges 
save those allowed by civil law else- 

Lieutenant Crocket and his com- 
pany of Ililocan scouts recently had a 
skirmish with Geronomino's band in 
the mountains of Morong province. 
Several rebels were killed and fifteen 
rifles were captured. 


All That Money Can Buy Will Be 
Added to the Boat. 

At a dinner party Saturday evening, 
in Glasgow, at which the success of 
Shamrock II. was toasted, Sir Thom- 
as Lipton and George L. Watson re 
plied. The latter mentioned that 
when Sir Thomas commissioned him 
to build the yacht, he said : 

"Now, Watson, I have not got 
money to burn, but if you are going 
to make her go a second faster, you 
can shovel on five pound notes." 

Mr. Watson added that he had taken 
Sir Thomas at his word. They had 
"Willie" Jamieson with them, and 
next to providence, "Willie" Jamie- 
son was the best aid they could have. 
If the boat did not win he did not Bee 
that there would be anybody much to 
blame but himself. If it waa only !i 
question as between Heeresholf and 
himself he did not see that the Sham- 
rock II. would have much chance, but 
he had associated with him such talent 
that with a "wee bit of luck," which 
was nearly due them, they hoped to 
pull through, 


But Dying Boy Indicated That It 
Was Accidental. 

At Florence, Ala., Saturday, Chester 
Waits, a 13-year-old boy, was shot in 
the stomach with a pistol by WW 
Waits, his 18-year-old brother, and 
died in two hours. Will Waits has 
disappeared Lut there are no warrants 
out for him, as it is supposed that tho 
shooting was accidental. No one saw 
the shooting and the boy, before his 
death, made the statement that they 
were handling the pistol when it was 

Twenty Fishermen Carried on Lake 
and Four Perished. 

Silver Creek, N. Y., March 3 — 
Twenty fishermen were carried out in 
Lake Erie to-day on floating ice, but 
seventeen of them were rescued. The 
other four have probably perished. 
Their names are: Henry Turner, 
John George, James McBratie and 
Julius Ludwig. The last seen of the 
four men they were still on tho ice, 
but a high wind was blowing up a big 
sea and the ice was fast breaking up. 
They were about four miles out and 
there was a mile of open water be- 
tween them and the shore. 

A Dog's Devotion, 
During a fire in the Sutliffe block, 
in Warron, Ohio, Saturday, Mrs. Pris- 
cilla Schoenburger was rescued from 
a third-story window by firemen just 
in time to save her life. Mrs. Schoen- 
burger was asleep when the fire 
started. Her little dog bit her twice 
on the heel and by baika led h6r to 
another apartment where she discov-

The Senate Adopts the Philippine and 
Cuban Amendments. 


Army Appropriation Bill, Containing 
Provisions .For a Temporary Govern, 
mont. of tlie Philippines and Detlnln;; 
Future Relations Between tlie Unitrd 
States and Cuba, Passed l>y a Party Vote 

Washington, D. C— Not in years has 
there been a debate in the Senate 
which in intense interest, excitement 
and passionate oratory equalled that 
of Wednesday, which culminated in 
the adoption of the Spooner amend- 
ment to the Army Appropriation bill 
and the Cuban amendment to the 
same bill, offered by the Committee 
on Relations -with Cuba, and then 
passed the bill itself. 

The Spooner amendment confers on 
the President wide powers in connec- 
tion with the Government of the Phil- 
ippines, and prohibits the disposal of 
any public lands in the archipelago, 
and the granting of any franchises, 
during the pendency of the temporary 
government, unless such grant be 
indispensable. The amendment was 
adopted on a strict party vote, with 
the exception of Mr. Hoar, (Rep , 
Mass.,) who voted with the Demo- 
crats, and Mr. McLaurin. (Deni., S. C.,) 
who voted for the amendment. 

The Cuban amendment specifying 
the desires of the United States as to 
the terms of the future relations be- 
tween Cuba and this country was 
taken up after the Spooner amend- 
ment was disposed of and passed on 
a party vote after a short debate, led 
by Senators Jones, (Dem., Ark.,) Mor- 
gan, (Dem., Ala..) and Pettus, (Dem., 
Ala.,) in opposition. 

The Spooner amendment as agreed 
to is as follows: 

"All military, civil and judicial pow- 
be granted which is not approved by 
Islands, acquired from Spain by the 
treaties concluded at Paris on the 
tenth day of December, 1S9S, and at 
Washington on the seventh day of No- 
vember, 1900, shall, until otherwise 
provided by Congress, be vested in 
such person and persons and shall be 
exercised in such manner as the Presi- 
dent of the United States shall direct, 
for the establishment of civil govern- 
ment and for maintaining and pro- 
tecting the inhabitants of said islands 
in the free enjoyment of their liberty, 
property and religion; provided that 
all franchises granted under the au- 
thority hereof shall contain a reserva- 
tion of the rignt to alter, amend, or 
appeal the same. Until a permanent 
government shall have been establish- 
ed in said archipelago full reports 
shall be made to Congress on or before 
the first day of each regular session 
of all legislative acts and proceedings 
of the temporary government insti- 
tuted, under the provisions hereof, and 
full reports of the acts and doings of 
said government and as to the condi- 
tions of the archipelago and of its peo- 
ple shall be made to the President, in- 
cluding all information which may be 
useful to the Congress in providing for 
a more permanent government. 

"Provided that no sale or lease or

Montevallo, Ala., Rich. 7, 1901. 


The State Senate, last Thurs 
day, killed the uniform text book- 
bill dead'i'H a dornick. 

It was a case of the trust lobby 
bat k d by the American Book Co. 
against the people, and the trust 
won out, at the expense of the 
people of Alabama. 

It is not so very many months 
ago that members of the State 
Senate were burning the wind 
with their torrid denunciations of 
trusts of whatsoever form or na- 
ture, and yet, last week, when the 
opportunity was given to practice 
what they had preached, they go 
over to the American Book Co. (a 
great trust) body and breeches and 
tell the people of Alabama to go 
to. It was within the power of 
this body to have saved the people 
of Alabama thousands of dollars 
in the purchasing of school books, 
but the American Book Co. with 
its powerful lobby said no, and a 
majority of the Senators bowed to 
the will ol' this great trust and the 
people of Alabama— who placed 
these men in the Senate to repre- 
sent them and not the trusts — are 
slapped in the face and told they 
do not know what is good fori 
them. They asked of the Senate I 
bread and that body gave thein a 

Many a poor man in Alabama is 
compelled to buy new text books 
times without number — just to 
satisfy the demands and whims of 
teachers who have almost absolute 
control over the matter, or keep 
his children out of school. Many 
are not in circumstances such as 
will enable them to buy a new set 
of school books every change of 
the moon, and as a result the chil- 
dren suffer. 

Had the»Senate passed the bill 
as did the House the obstacle (pur- 
chasing new book every year) which 
now stands in the way of a great 
many children securing an educa- 
tion, would have been removed. 
The Ameriacn Book Co., however, 
Hannaized the Senate and the book- 
trust will still continue to throttle 
the people of Alabama. But we 
apprehend the people will do a lit- 
tle throttling on their own account 
when those Senators who defeated 
the school hook bill ask for a re- 

Following the killing of the text 
book bill, the Senate passed a bill 
to educate UC girls (one from each 
county in the State) at the Girls' 
Industrial School at this place, and 
appropriates $10,000 to bear thi 
expense of their education. 

Now the question very naturally 
arises who is to decide what par- 

ticular girl in each county is to be 
the ward i.f the Statu at this school 
and how is she to be chosen? F.v 
cry county has a number of poor 
crirls, all of ttiem worthy — but 
which particular girl should be 
chosen ? 

But the passage of this bill by 
the Senate was merely buncombe. 
That body was inconsistent in il. 
It knew that even if the bill passed 
the House, which is doubtful, ii 
would be vetoed by the Governor. 
Such being the case it looks very 
much like horse play on the part 
of the Senate. 



A bill has passed the Legisla- 
ture, and has been signed by the 
Governor, removiug Shelby's coun- 
ty seat from Columbiana to Ca- 
lera, and all the offices will remov. 
ed to Calera after the spring term 
of court. The bill permits Calera 
to bond jtself for $30,000 to build 
a court house, and T. C. McKib- 
bon are appointed commissioners 
to issue the bonds. Should ihe of- 
ficers fail to comply with the pro 
visions of the bill they are subject 
to a line of $1000 and a year's im- 

The county seat is on wheels 
and coming our way. 

Hon. Frank L Bettus, Speaker 
of the House, died at his hi me in 
Selma, yesterday 


We learn that Mr. Herbert E. 
Reynolds, of Centerville, is urged 
by a large number of his friends to 
to become a candidate for delegate 
to the Constitution Convention 
•'rem the Senatorial district of BibO 
ind Perry eoun ties. 

Mr. Reynolds was a Montevallo 
boy, is a son of Capt. H. C. 
Reynolds, and like all of his sons is 
afirstclass man. He graduated from 
the University of Alabama in two 
sessions with conspicious ability, 
and was then honored with a free 
course in the law department, and 
was also made General Clayton's 
private secretary. After finishing 
his course in law at the University 
of this Siate he took a course in 
the law department of the Universi- 
ty of Virginia, after which he set- 
tled in Columbiana to practice his 
profession. But owing to the in- 
creasing mercantile business of tne 
firm of which his father was the i 
head, he consented to give all his 
attention to the mercantile inter- 
ests of his father. He is today 
one of the most successful young 
men in Alabama; progressive wide 
awake, conscientious in his inter, 
course with all, he has made for 
himself an enviable record, and be- 
cause they know him to be a true 
man in every sense of tliPi 
term is the prime reason why the 
people in his section want him to 
be a delegate, and The Sentinel be- 
lieves if Mr. Reynolds becomes a 
member of the Constitutional Con- 
vention he will be an honor not 
only to his constituents, but to the 
Con ven tion as well . 

Next Saturday beat meetings are 
called to elect delegates to the 
county convention which is to be 
held in Columbiana on the 14th, at 
which delegate will be chosen to the 
State Convention in Montgomery 
on the 10th. At the State Conven- 
tion four delegates from the State- 
at-large and one delegate from each 
Senatorial and Consressonal district 
will be nominated to the Constitu 
tional Convention. 

Two grave dangers, according to 
the New Orleans Times- Democrat, 
menace the cotton seed industry. 
One is the approaching expiration 
in the present month of the com- 
mercial treaty between the United 
States and France, and the other is 
the manifest disposition in Congress 
to legislate against this pure and 
heathful product because it is used 
as an adulterant in lard and butter. 
It is not difficult to understand the 
Opposition to cotton seed oil, since 
it comes in to strong competition 
with olive oil, which is a great 
France industry. Salad oil from 
cotton seed has bounded into popu- 
larity of recent years, because of 
its intrinsic merit as well as its 
cheapness. The opposition to cot- 
ton seed producers in the United 
States come chiefly from butter 
makers and the great meat concerns 
that manufacture and deal in leaf 
lard, and it is quite a fomridable 
opposition judging from its influ- 
ence at Washington — Birmingham 

The Augusta Chronicle says: 
The city council of Chattanooga has 
passed an ordinance requiring 
women to remove their hats in the 
theatre. If the women of Chatta- 
nooga are as gracious as the 
women of Augusta, and as good 
looking with their hats off, it would 
only have been necessary for re- 
quest to be made. No woman io 
Augusta would be selfish enough to 
obscure the stage from those sitting 
behind her, when the removal of 
her hat is not only easy but, be- 
coming. "It is established custom of 
ladies attending theatres in Bir- 
mingham to remove their hats as 
soon as the performance begins, and 
no one has ever suggested the ad- 
option of an ordinance requiring 
such removal. It is simply a mat- 
ter of consideration for the welfare 
of others. Birmingham women are 
not only gracious but they are 
thoughtful. Chattanooga is behind 
the times.— Birmingham News. 

We notice that Hon. Cecil Browne 
is a candidate for delegate to the 
Constitutional Convention from 
Talladega counto. Mr. Browne has 
many friends iu this section who 
will be glad to see him the choice 
of that county. 

The newest thing in Kansas is a 
saloon encased iu steel, warren ted 
i to be Nation proof. 

A Teunessee soldier writes home 
from the Philippines: 

"The women who attend church 
here dress becoming in long black 
veils, black silk or satin dresses and 
half slippers; they wear no hose and 
the ankle and half the foot is ex- 
posed. The men wear pantaloons 
and a long skirt of gauzy texture 
hanging loosely on the shoulders 
outside the pantaloons. Th y gen- 
erally wear a straw hat. The social 
evil is conspicuous by its absence. 
The people seem brotherly and un- 
selfish and are clean in their con ver- 
sation ."

"Life is real ; Life is earnest, 
And the grave is not its goal ; 

Dust thou art, to dust retnrueth, 
Was not spoken of the son]." 

Life is no joke, is no empty dream. 
Indeed life is an earnest, vital, essen- 
tial affair. How much life means words 
refuse to tell, because they cannot. To 
express its great purpose and true es- 
sentialities, language is inadequate. 
The full purpose of our being and the 
design of life's many attributes are be- 
yond human comprehension. Inherent 
to life are many attributes, some of 
which are glorious, and are predicated 
as blessings; others are attributes of 
sorrow and grief, and are. termed afflic- 
tions which are simply blessings in dis- 

If I were asked which is the most 
glorious of all life's glorious attributes 
unhesitatingly would I answer—friend- 
ship. Friendship is the greatest tribu- 
tary to life's stream of' happiness. The 
sweetest blessing that God bestows up- 
on finite man u friends true and loving 
The greatest pie asure that we can en- 
joy on earth, the happiest state of this 
lile, is associating and mingling with 
friends in whom we can confide. Where 
persons are united by the bond<i of gen- 
uine friendship, it is more conducive to 
felicity than all other attributes of life 
combined. It supports and strengthens 
the mind, alleviates the pain of lite and 
renders the present state, at least, some- 
what comioitible. Withdraw friend- 
ship from life ami it becomes intoler- 
able. The combined vrialth, fame ami 
renown of the entire universe could not 
impart to us one moment of happiness. 
Despair w old crush the most defiant 
heart if it were not tor the ministering 
of friends.' 

Deprive us of all' other blessin gs but 
leave us c ur friends, and' we will still 
have some acquaintance with hitppi 
ness. Dei-sons have been known to live 
with no wealth, fame or glory, and yet 
they were appy beca 'ie of the posses- 
sion of friends. A person destitute of 
even the necessities and comforts of ex- 
istence, may be confined' to a bed of 
sickness, afflicted, with an incurable 
malady, and suffering intense agony 
and torturing pain incessantly; even in 
that condition one will be thrilled with 
some degree of happiness through the 
ministering touch of the hand, or sym- 
pathetic sound of the voice of a friend. 

The felicity induced by friendship is 
indeed sublime if not divine. It is su- 
perseded' in sublimity only by the in- 
expressible bliss of heaven itself. 

If I were asked, of ail life's attributes 
of sorrow which produces the most grie: 
emphatically would I exclaim — the di-- 
solution of friends. To take advantage

like tlmse will rill the stoutest heart 
with such deep regret, that it becomes

consciously afflictions and sorrows akin 
to those of death itsedf.

can derive some consolement and ani-

Noticeable Among: the 
Weak and Ailing. 

Sprint IK Time Death Reaps Its 
Larpst HaM 

There is a Way of Eluding (ho 
Grim Destroyer. 

Every Spring It la noticeable how 
many people are taken away that we 
have been accustomed to see In our 
daily life. 

Statistics show that at no other sea- 
son of the year does so many deaths 

Especially large is the mortality 
among weak and sickly people. 

The reason for this is apparent. The 
body that is weakened by age or dis- 
ease has much to contend with during 
the Winter months. Insufficient exer- 
cise frequently has been taken. Too 
much starchy and fatty foods have been 
eaten. The system has been allowed 
to become run down, and when Spring 
comes with its bright, sunshiny days, 
older people will begin to realize that 
their vitality has become very low. 
The same thing is true of people who 
are naturally slekly and weak. 

This is the season of the year when 
even a strong person feels at his 
worst. That tired, restless feeling is 
experienced by too many. 

There need not be as many deaths 
this year as usually take place. A lit- 
tle care will ward off many Spring fu- 
nerals. If one is weak or ailing they 
should take time by the forelock and 
take Dr. Greene's Nervura blood and 
nerve remedy. This great medicine 
has been in many cases, and will con- 
tinue to be. the means by which the 
black angel of Death has been driven 
from the threshold. It dispels the 
grim destroyer in a scientific way, for 
it purifies the blood and gives 
strength and vitality to the nerves. It 
tones up and restores to a healthy con- 
dition all of the great life-giving or- 
gans of the body. 

Dr. Greene's Nervura blood and 
nerve remedy will enable those who 
take it to throw off little ills that 
prove dangerous only when they at- 
tack a system already wasted and 

From many people, who have ex- 
perienced benefit from this greatest 
of all life-lengtheners comes the fol- 
lowing from the famous General Long- 
street of 1217 New Hampshire avenue, 
Washington, D. C. He says: 

"It gives me great pleasure to add 
my testimony with many others for Dr. 
Greene's Remedy, which I have used 
with highly beneficial results and I am 
able to recommend its virtues from 
experience. I have used it for catarrh 
and have derived help." 

Mr. Wellington Hynes. Elizabeth- 
town, N. Y.. writes: 

"I feel it my duty to tell how much 
good Dr. Greene's Nervura has done 
me. I was so run down that I could 
not sleep at night and everything wor- 
ried me. I had no appetite and could 
not work, my head ached all the time 
and there was an all-gone feeling in 
my stomach and I was always-looking 
on the dark side of everything. I be- 
gan to take Dr. Greene's Nervura 
blood and nerve remedy and In less 
than three weeks I felt like a new 
man. I can now do as much work as 
Is expected of a man my age. I advise 
any one who is troubled to take Dr. 
Greene's Nervura. Do not go to a doc- 
tor, but get a bottle of Dr. Greene's 
Nervura. It Is cheaper than a doctor's 

The latter part of Mr. Hynes's ad- 
vice might be profitably disregarded, 
however, If you should feel you would 
like the advice of a physician. You 
can have such advice and have it free 
if you will write or call on the great- 
est known blood and nerve specialist, 
Dr. Greene, 35 W. 14th St.. New

New Vegetable Wanted. 

Our present garden vegetables are 
cultivated varieties of wild species. 
Why do not our horticulturists seek 
for other wild plants that could be in- 
troduced with profit to our tables? A 
fortune awaits him who does this suc- 
cessfully, says Le Scien-ie Prancaise. 
We may be shy, at first, of a dish of 
iris, or a saxifrage salad, but the 
papers will relate how Bernhardt and 
Coquelin ate and liked them, and then 
the iris and the saxifrage will become 
popular, like the potato. 


Peculiar Way Kanir.i Have of Eanklnc 
TLelr Money. 

The natives of that part of South 
Africa which to a great extent is in- 
habited by bushmen and Hottentots 
have a peculiar system of banks and 
banking. These Kaffirs among whom 
this curious system of banking obtains 
live near Kaffraria, in the south of the 
Colony country. The natives come 
clown south from their country to trails 
in the several villages and towns in 
largo numbers and then return to Kaf- 
fraria. From those who trade of their 
own number they select one, who for 
the occasion is to bn their banker. He 
is converted into a bank of deposit by 
putting all the money of those whose 
banker he is into a bag, and then they 
sally forth to the stores to buy what- 
ever they want. When an article is 
purchased by any of those who are in 
this banking arrangement, the price 
of the article is taken by the banker 
from this deposit money bag, counted 
several times and then paid to the 
seller of the article, after which all the 
bank depositors cry out to the banlrer 
in the presence of the two witnesses 
selected: "You owe me so much!" 
This is then repeated by the vit- 
nesses. The general accounting tomes 
between the banker and his several de- 
positors when all desired purchnso3 
have been made, r.fLor which all tlu 
natives depart, for th.-'ir northern wilila.

There is more Catarrh in this section of the 
country than all other diseases put together, 
and until the last few years was supposed to be 
Incurable. For a great many years doctors 
pronounced it a local disease and prescribed 
local remedies, and by constantly failing to 
cure with local tieitment, pronounced It in- 
curable. Science has proven catarrh to be a 
constitutional disease and therefore requires 
constitutional treatment. Hall's Catarrh Cure

Horse Shoes Welsrhln? One Onnce. 

The smallest horse probably that 
was ever fitted with a set of shoes by 
any horseshoer in California occupied 
a place in the shop of Howard & Mil- 
lerick of Petaluma a few days ago. It 
was a six-months-old Shetland pony, 
one of a band a Los Angeles man was 
bringing down from Mendocino coun- 
ty, where they had been pastured dur- 
ing the summer. The rough roads had 
worn its bare feet and necessitated 
shoeing. The shoes, fashioned out of 
a steel bar, when fitted to the pony's 
feet were a trifle larger than a sliver 
dollar piece and the full set weighed 
just four ounces, an ounce for each

Elevators are by no means the re- 
cent invention generally supposed. An 
amusing account of what was probably 
the first attempt at an elevator is told 
by St. Simon and according to him Jt 
was from a M. Villayer that tho idea 
of a "flying chair" first emanated. This 
ingenious person set irp a passablo pro- 
totype of the modern elevator In his 
house in Paris, working it up and' 
down between the walls. The daugh- 
ter of Louis XIV. was so delighted 
with the novelty that she had one put 
up in her own apartments at Versail- 
les. This honor was, however, the un- 
doing of poor M. Villayer's machine. 
The chair suddenly stopped moving 
while the princess was between two 
landings and she had to remain block- 
ed up for three hours until the work- 
men broke a hole through the thick 
wall. The king was so annoyed at this 
that he forbade any further experi- 
ments in the same line^

For the Murder of Mrs Foote 
February 20th. 


A $3,500,000 Shipbuilding Plant 
at Mobile. 


Son Charged Willi Murder of His 
Mother— Father Accessory 

The preliminary trial of Charles A. 
Foote and Arthur Foote, the latter 
charged with the murder of his moth- 
er, Mrs. Amanda Foote, on Feb. 20, 
at Bessemer, and the former, who was 
the woman's husband, charged with 
being an accessory, came up Monday 
before Justice William Jackson at 
Bossemer. The case against tho de- 
fendants is largely circumstantial, 
there being no eye witnesses to the 
alleged murder. A largo number of 
witnesses have been subpoenaed and 
will testify at tho hearing. 

The murder of Mrs. Foote was one 
of the most shocking in the criminal 
annals of Jefferson county. She was 
found by her 12-year-old daughter ly- 
ing on the kitchen floor of her house 
with her throat cut. The windpipe was 
cut in two places and the instrument 
of death, a caseknife, was found lying 
by her. The room gave evidence of a 
struggle, and that the woman was at- 
tacked while sitting in a chair, a dress 
on which she was working and her 
S9wing materials having fallen to the 
floor where she was sitting. 

At first it was thought to be a case 
of suicide, but the coroner's jury, af- 
ter an investigation, brought in a ver- 
dict charging her son with the murder 
and her husbaud as being an access- 


Board of Directors Issue an Address 
to the Public. 

The following appeal on behalf of 
t ie proposed home for old Confeder- 
ate veterans has been issued by the 
board of directors : 

Birmingham, Ala., March 9, 1901. 
To the Public: 

The board of directors of the pro- 
posed home for old and needy confed- 
erate veterans and their families of 
the state of Alabama made an appli- 
cation to the last legislature for an 
appropriation to aid them in building 
this home, but they failed to get any 
assistance whatever from that body. 
Therefore, as this board has already 
received in donations, building ma- 
terial of all kinds nearly a sufficient 
quantity to build this home, and 
hoping for the continued generous aid 
of all charitably disposed citizens of 
Alabama towards these old veterans, 
have at last determined, with the aid 
of all these donations, to build this 
home somewhere in tho state, regard- 
less of the legislature and all other 
opponents to it. With this determi- 
nation in view, the board of directors 
of this proposed home did at their last 
meeting on March 2. 1901, appoint 
tho undersigned committee to adver- 
tise in all the papers of this state, 
calling on all persons who are favor- 
able to it for donations in cash, ma- 
terial and also in the way of a suitable 
site for the location of this home. 
This site being open to any section 
desirable in Alabama, parties having 
any desirable locations, cash or build- 
ing material they can donate, they will 
confer a favor on these old veterans 
by communicating without delay with 
the undersigned committee : 

C. F. Enslen, Chairman. 
C. T. Hughes, 
H. F. Bbidbwbll. 

A New Railroad. 
Alabama is soon to have another 
railroad. It will be an independent 
line, seven miles in length. The ar- 
ticles of incorporation were issued 
from the office of the secretary of 
state this morning to William Blount, 
president; J. H. Ely, treasurer; Geo. 
B. Miles, secretary; B. I. Ely, Hugh 
Foster, Charles Jinks, E. L. Blue, W. 
M. Ellis and P. F. Miles of Union 
Springs, for the building of the Union 
Springs and Northern railroad. The 
line is to extend from Union Springs 
to Fort Davis on the Seaboard Air 


Mitchell of Alabama Promoted from 

In a long list of nominations for 
the regular army which the president 
sent to the senate Saturday was that 
of Americus Mitchell, first lieutenant 
of infantry, to be captain. 

Capt. Mitchell is an Alabamian and 
since December, 1899, has been in 
charge of tho recruiting stations in 
this slate, with headquarters in Bir- 
mingham. Ha has many friends here 
who will congratulate him on his ad- 
vancement. Of the 450 captains of 
the infantry only three or four are as 
young as Mitchell. This popular and 
courteous officer was born in Kussell 
county just thirty years ago and grad- 
uated from West Point in the class of 
1895. Commissioned second lieuten- 
ant on leaving the academy ho was 
promoted to the rank of first lieuten- 
ant. After serving with the Fifth in- 
fantry in Cuba for fifteen months he 
was detailed for reoruiting work. 

An Interesting Operation at St. Vin- 
cent's Hospital. 
An operation of more than ordinary 
interest was performed at St. Vincent's 
Hospital, Birmingham, Friday morn- 
ing under which the leg of a man 50 
years of age was amputated with little 
inconvenience or pain to the patient, 
and without the use of ohloriform or 
the usual anesthetics. The operation 
is known as spinal anesthesia, and has 
aroused deep interest among surgeons 
and in the medical profession gener- 
ally, and Friday's operation, which 
was eminently successful, was the 
first that has been performed in the 
state of Alabama. The operation was 
performed by Dr. John D. S. Davis. 
The patient was suffering from cancer 
of the leg and was prepared for the 
operation by injecting an eighth of a 
grain of cocaine in the lost lumbar- 
interzertebral space. After waiting 
seven minutes, there was complete 
loss of all sensation in the lower ex- 
tremities and a tourniquet was applied 
and the limb amputated without pain. 
During the entire proceedings the pa- 
ient conversed with the surgeons, and 
left the room in splendid oondition.

Several States Visited by Storms 


Hundreds of Thousands of Dollars 
Worth of Property Destroyed. 

Willspoint, Tex., March 9.— At 11 
o'clock this morning a terrible cyclone 
swept through the western part of this 
city, demolishing everything in its 
track. Eight persons are known to 
havo been killed and at least twenty 
more are soveroly injured. Fourteen 
dwelling houses, the public school 
building, cotton oil mills, a large gin 
plant and several business houses are 
in splinters. The path of the cyolonc 
was about three hundred feet wide, 
and it burst from a lowering cloud 
like a clap of thunder, leaving misery 
and desolation in its wake. Wires 
were blown off the poles, fences were 
leveled and the air was filled with 
flying debris. A freight car was blown 
from the track and is a total wreck. 
Household utensils are strewn as far 
as the eye can reach and mark the 
path of destruction left by the tor- 
nado. Property loss is $75,000, which 
is a conservative estimate.

Terrific Storm at Fulton. 
Fulton, Ky., March 10. — A terrific 
storm swept this section last night. 
The damage at Clinton and Hickman 
was heaviest. At Clinton twenty 
negro cabins were demolished and a 
score of negroes hurt. Two negroes

badly bruised and mashed. Part of 
Marvin College was unroofed and the 
waterworks destroyed. Eight freight 
cars on the Illinois switch at the depot

Life of the Venerable Chinese Diplo- 
mat Hangs by a Thread. 

A dispatch from Pekin, dated March 
10, says: Li Hung Chang is again 
seriously ill and his physician says his 
life hangs by a thread. 

Prince Chung and Earl Li seem to 
think that by spreading rumors of the 
court's unwillingness to return to 
Pokin unless this or that thing is done 
before they can iufiuenoe the delibera- 
tions of the ministers of the power?. 
According to reliable reports from Sian 
Fu, imperial personages are extremely 
uncomfortable at Sian Fu, where they 
live in the house of the governor, 
which is only a small structure. 
French missionaries who have just 
returned here from Sian Fu believo 
the Empress Dowager would bring tho 
court back to Pekin on the first offer 
of the allies having as a basis the re- 
moval of the troops except the lega- 
tion guards.

bring about the highest prosperity 
and permanent good of both races in

At Chicago. 
Chicago, March 10. — One of the 
worst wind storms of the season struck 
Chicago early today and during the 
hours that it was at its height damaged 
property throughout the city to the 
extent of $17o,000. Many heavy plate 
glass windows were blown in. Tele- 
graphic and telephone companies were 
the worst sufferers, and it will be some 
time before order can be restored. 
Thousands of poles were blown down 
and Chicago was practically isolated 
from the west and Northwest by tele- 
phone and telegraph. The long dis- 
tance telephone service was crippled 
so badly that it was of little value. 
The storm Is belived to have been 
most severe in southern Wisconsin. 
Along a short stretch of the Milwaukee 
road in southern Wisconsin 500 tele- 
graph poles are down. Reports from 
many points in Indiana and Kentucky 
also indicate heavy damage from the

Owensboro, Ky., March 10. — A 
cloudburst here last night did great 
damage. The sewer well at Main and 
Davies streets burst and a torrent of 
water poured into the opening and the 
streets were torn up for some distance 
about fifty feet in diameter and trenty- 
five feet deep. A large water main 
was undermined und broke in two and 
this added to the fury of the waters, 
poured into the large opening, created 
a roar like a big waterfall. Davies 
and Main streets were undermined for 
many yards, there being only a top 
crust of macadam and underaeath the 
appearance of a mammoth stream ol

The following extracts are some 
of the comments on Shelby's court 
house bill, which recently oassed 
the Legislature: 

A bill was slipped through the 
Legislatur close upon the adjourn- 
ment of that body, and the Gover 
nor was in some way induced to 
sign the same, which authorizes the 
removal of the court house of Shel- 
by county from Columbiana to Ca- 
I era. The act also names Judge 
Campbell, T C. AlcKibboii and H. 
C. Moss' of Catera, as a board of 
commissioners to sell $30,000 
worth of bonds to build new public, 
buildings for the comity within 2. • 
000 feet of the crossing at Calera, 
all of which is -entered into in de- 

Of course this is as surprising to 
the people of Columbiana and Shel 
by couuty generally as it is outra- 
geous and absured. Twice havti the 
people by ovor whelming- majorities 
said that Columbiana should be 
their capitol, and thtfagh the law 
exists defeating their wish, we do 
' not believe that its provisions will 
ever be accomplished nor the wish 
of those who seek to override by 
secrecy and chicanery the will of 
the people be gratified. 

We are not Familiar enough with 
the situation to discuss it inteli- 
gently this week, but will inform 
ourselves and next week hope to 
give cur readers the facts in the 
'matter as near as they can be ob- 
■tained. We would remind our 
tfriends at Calara that "the best 
laid plans o' mice and men of- 
times gang aglee." — Columbiana 

Two years ago, the legislature 
passed a bill providing that the 
people of Shelby couuty might vote 
■on the removal of their court house 
to Calcra. It also provided 
that the people themselves might 
bring on the election if they wished 
to have one. Two years passed .md 
no election was held, because the 
time did not arrive when Calera felt 
strong enough to risk it. 

Tu this legislature unbeknown to 
the people, a bill was put through 
in the most quiet and stealthy way, 
bodily moving the court house from 
Columbiana to Calera, The word 
"Turkey" was not even whispered 
to the people. 

Of course, this was very bad, 
very wrong. But nealy all court 
house removals are accomplished by 
a certain amount of fraud. General- 
ly. tne fraud is at the ballot box, 
To sneik a bill through the legisla- 
ture is rather mild than otherwise. 

However all this may be, the 
Shelbv court house ought to be at 
Calera. and a good deed is done 
in a dark way. —Montgomery Jour- 

Mr G.B.ueans, of Shelby coun- 
ty,' was in tne city todaj. 

A News reporter questioned him 
relative to the ieport that an act 
had been adopted by the General 
Assembly, the provisions ol which 
are that, the county site of Shelby 
county shall be removed lrom Col- 

umbiana and that $80,000 of bonds 
shall be issued for the building of 
a court house and county jail at 

Mr. Deans said: "Yes, it is true, 
that such a bill has been adopted. 
By this bill the county si'e is to be 
removed to Calera and the bond 
issue is to be made." 

"Why was this action taken 
when there is already a provision 
adopted by the last General Assem- 
bly empowering the county to vote 
on the question of removing the 
couuty site within (our yars 
time?" asked the reporter. 

Mr. Deans said: "The Senator 
from the district, Mr. Oliver, and 
1 myself discovered that the officials 
I were about to forestall the action 
I of what we thought the will of the 
people by deciding to go ahead and 
build the jail and court house at 
Columbiana. if these buildings 
were erected at Columbiana, that 
would, of course, have been an ar-

Bandy \ Giuhan's SarsoparilSa. 

The Best Blood Purifier and Spring 
Tonic, and Why. 

The virtues of any good remedy depend not, alone on the- ingredi- 
ents used, but, on the way they arc proportioned and compound- 
ed. In the making of Bandy & Givhan's Sarwap&rilla roots of a 
select, quality are chosen. Their virtues are then extruded by 
the best scientific processes — extracted so skillfully that every 
atom of virtue is retained. The formula includes Sarsnpn rill;], 
Mandrake, Dandelion, Stillingia, Ocntion, Yellow Dock, combined with Iodide of 
Potassium and Iron, acting as it does primarily oh the blood, it cures Catarrh, 
Scrofula, Boils, Pimples and Blood Poisoning, gives new life, creates appetite and 
induces sound and refreshing sleep. It cures by re in Forcing nature; it expels 
waste matter, increases activity of the liver and kidneys; pueifios and enriches 
the blood and so tones up the system that the beneficial results are permanent.

I wandered to die 
beneath the tent, 
from Borneo, likewise the lattooed

while men in spangled clothes stepped 
fearlessly into their dens and whacked 
them on the nose. I saw the sacred 
elephant, spout w ater through his trunk, 
the salam inder eating lead and other 
mehed junk. I heard the merry clowns 
get off the jokes we used to know when 
we were boys together, John, some 
twenty yeats go. The same old horses 
waddled round the same old kind o 
rmg, the same old kind of vocalists 
proved that they couldn't sing; the 
same old hip, opolani n was grunting

Hospitals in our great cities are sad places to visit. 

Three-fourths of the patients lying on those snow-white 
beds are wo\nen and girls. 

Why should this be the case ? 

Because they have neglected themselves. 

Every one of these patients in the hospital beds had plenty 
of warning in that bearing-down feeling, pain at the left or 
right of the womb, nervous exhaustion, pain in the small of 
the back. All of these things are indications of an unhealthy 
condition of the ovaries or womb. 

What a terrifying thought ! these poor souls are lying 
there on those hospital beds awaiting a fearful operation. 

Do not drag along at home or in your place of employ- 
ment until you are obliged to go to the hospital and submit to 
an examination and possible operation. Build up the female 
system, cure the derangements which have signified them- 
selves by danger signals, and remember that Lydia E. 
Pinkham's Vegetable Compound has saved thousands 
of women from the hospital. Read the letter here published 
with the full consent of the writer, and sse how she escaped 
the knife by a faithful reliance on Mrs. Pinkham's advice 
and the consistent treatment of her medicines. 

Mrs. Knapp tells of her Great Gratitude. 

" Deab Mrs. Pinkham : — I have received much benefit from using your 
Vegetable Compound and Sanative Wash. After my child was born, blood 
poison set in, which left me with granulated in- 
flammation of the womb and congested ovaries. 
I had suffered from suppressed and painful 
menstruation from a girl. The doctors told me 
the ovaries would have to be removed. I took 
treatment two years to escape an operation, 
but still remained in miserable health in both 
body and mind, expecting to part with my 
reason with each coming month. After using 
one bottle of the Compound, I became entirely 
rid of the trouble in my head. I continued to 
use your remedies until cured. 

" The last nine months have been passed in 
perfect good health. This, I know, I owe en- 
tirely to Lydia E. Pinkham's Vege- 
table Compound. 

"My gratitude is great indeed to the one to 
whom so many women owe their health and 
happiness."— Mbs. F. M. Knapp, 1S28 Kinnic- 

kinnic Avenue, Milwaukee, Wis.

A Hiss That Coat a Life. 

In Prescott, Wash., one day recentlv. 
MAss Ella Boone remarked at a party 
that she had never been kissed. Prank 
Sloan heard the remark, and a little 
later, while she was blindfolded, he 
kissed her in fun. She resented his 
action and, pulling a hatpin from her 
hat, stabbed him in the leg. The pin 
was broken off and blood-poisoning re- 
sulted. The next day the pain became 
so intense that Sloan went to the hos- 
pital in Walla Walla. An X-ray ma- 
chine failed to locate any sign of the 
Din. and Sloan grew worse and died.

Five Hundred Kinds of Trees. 

With the light thrown on Philippine 
affairs by the American occupation 
comes a greater knowledge than was 
heretofore possessed of the many valu- 
able products native to the soil. Under 
old laws forestry was almost unknown, 
and the most valuable rubber, gutta- 
percha and ylang-ylang tree were al- 
lowed to be cut down at will, says the 
Philadelphia North American. These 
old regulations are now changed, and 
licenses must now be taken out. For- 
estry Director Ahern estimates the 
total number of tree species in the 
archipelago at 500. There are no puie 
forests of any one species, but all 
grow together in one discriminate 
mas3. The forest lands of the Philip- 
pines are estimated at from 20,000,000 
to 40,000,000 acres— one-half of the

Deadly dangers lurk in the ground 
left bare by the departing snow. All 
Winter long there have been accumu- 
lating deadly disease germs. 

These have been protected and 
kept alive by the covering of snow 
and now, with the first warm days, 
these death-bringing microbes are 
awakened by the rays of the sun, and 
as the ground dries they are carried to 
all corners of the community in the 
dust that is blown everywhere by the 
Spring winds. 

The human body at this time is par- 
ticularly susceptible to these germs, 
especially the germs of fevers. The 
system has been depleted by the fore- 
going Winter. The blood is sluggish 
and filled with impurities. The nerves 
have not recovered from the tension 
they have been under for the past 
months. The stomach, the bowels, the 
kidneys, the liver are all at their 

It Is, therefore, not strange that 
these germs of disease find fertile 
ground in which to thrive, flourish and 
develop into deadly ills. 

Spring is the time of year when one 
Bhould fear an attack of fever, espe- 
cially when the system is depleted, one 
should dread any severe illness. The 
vitality is at a low ebb. There is less 
power of resistance to throw off di- 
sease, and it le on this account that 
fatalities are so much greater during 
the Spring months than at any other 
time of the year. 

There Is but one way to ward off 
such dangers, and that is to fortify 

the human body so that, it will be- 
come impregnable to 'the germs of in. 
vading disease. 

To do this take D|r- Greene's Ner- 
vura blood and nerve remedy. It will 
build you up quickly, it will re-estab- 
lish your waning appetite. It will give 
you restful nights of sleep, it will give 
vim and vigor to the nerves, and it 
will dispel all existing poisons that 
have accumulated In the boxly besides 
counteracting the effects 'of others 
that may accumulate. 

Following is an instance that will 
illustrate the wonderful power of Dr. 
Greene's Nervura blood and nerve 

Sheriff Jonas T. Stevens, who Is 
sheriff of Hyde Park, Vt.. says:— "I 
have used Dr. Greene's Nervura "blood 
and nerve remedy especially as'a blood 
purifier. I had a very severe humor 
on my arms, accompanied by a very 
bad itching, so severe that I could not 
sleep nights, causing me great incon- 
venience by the loss of sleep by the 
itching. A friend advised me to take 
Dr. Greene's Nervura blood and nerve 
remedy, which I did with the most 
satisfactory results, for the trouble 
has entirely disappeared, and I can 
now rest comfortably nights and have 
none of my former misery from the 
burning, itching sensations." 

Remember Dr. Greene's advice will 
be given to any one desiring same ab- 
solutely free If they will write or call 
upon him at his office, 35 W. 14th St.,

Silas P. Rather Dead— Cashier 
Robbed— Other State News 
of Interest. 


Seventeen- Year-Old Son Kills His 
Father to Escape a Beating. 

James Amberson, aged 17 years, 
shot and killed his father, M. L. Am- 
berson, at Piedmont, twenty miles 
north of Anniston, about 10 o'clock 
Friday night. According to reliable 
reports, the elder Amberson persisted 
in getting drunk and cursing his fam- 
ily. While on a spree Friday night 
he advanced on his son with a hickory 
stick, intending to beat him. The son 
drew a pistol and shot his father in the 
groin. The man died in twenty min- 
utes. At the time of the killing the 
younger Amberson was up stairs in 
the Amberson home at Piedmont. 
Coming up the stairs the father called 
out to his son that he was coming up 
to his room to beat him with a stick. 
The son warned him not to come, as 
he would shoot. The warning was 
not heeded, and when he opened the 
door of his sou's room the latter shot 
him. Young Amberson bears a good 
reputation, and all of the family ex- 
cept the elder man were highly re- 
spected and well known. The younger 
man said he did not intend to kill his 
father, but wanted to 6hoot him in the 
leg. After the tragedy the boy sur- 
rendered himself to a deputy sheriff. 

Birmingham's Musical Festival, 
The dates of Birmingham's third 
annual Music Festival having been 
definitely settled — Tuesday, April 30th 
and Wednesday, May 1st — the man- 
agement will loose no time in adver- 
tising it throughout Alabama and 
neighboring states. Benjamin Guck- 
enberger, the director, had intended 
having the festival ou May 2d and 3d 
and the Chicago Orchestra had been 
engaged originally for those dates ; but 
in order to arrange his southern cir- 
cuit with a view to making certain 
railroad connections the manager 
asked Mr. Guckenberger to allow his 
organization to come two days earlier, 
and the change was readily agreed to, 
especially when important concessions 
were made. The first contract was 
for five vocal artists in addition to the 
orchestra of seventy-five pieces, con- 
ducted by Theodore Thomas, but no 
artist was to sing but one night. The 
new contract provides that all artists 
shall sing both nights without extra 
charge and for still further good 
measure Mr. Thomas agrees to throw 
in a violin soloist and a violencello 
soloist, each of whom is to be a dis- 
tinguished virtuoso. 

A Young Woman Burns to Death. 

Mrs. Mary Morris, aged 23 years, 
was so badly burned at her home in 
Oxanna, ward five, of Anniston, Fri- 
day afternoon at 5 o'clock that death 
resulted Saturday morning at 4 o'clock 
Mrs. Morris lost her eyesight about 
two years ago. She leaves a husband 
and one child. At the time of this 
awful accident Mrs. Morris had been 
left alone for several moments, a thing 
quite unusual. Her clothing became 
ignited from an open grate. Parts of 
her body were burned to a crisp and 
she endured agonizing sufferings. 

Will Preach in Birmingham March 
23 and 24. 

Rev. F. B. Meyer, the noted evan- 
gelist of London, England, is in this 
country, and will include Birming- 
ham in a tour of the principal cities. 

Dr. Meyer is considered one of the 
greatest preaehers and religious 
writers of the age, and was associated 
with the late Dwight L. Moody in the 
conduct of the Northfield school. 

Dr. Meyer will preach in Birming- 
ham March 23 and 24, and the local 
Pastors' Union is arranging for a 
great reception for tho noted divine. 
Dr. Meyer will be accompanied by W. 
K. Moody, sou of the lute Dwight L. 

Biirglais Make a Big Haul. 
Colonel Jfimes T. Pierce, president 
of the Black Diamond Coal and Iron 
Company, of Owensboro, Ky., who 
arrived in Birmingham Saturday after- 
noon to spend a few days with his 
brother-in-law, Dr. Robert Jones, 
was the victim of burglars Sunday 
morning, and every indication points 
to the fact that the work was done by 

Colonel Pierce was given a room on 
the ground floor of Dr. Jones' resi- 
dence at No. 2204 Fourth avenue, and 
retired to bod about 12 o'clock Satur- 
day night, and being tired from travel- 
ing soon fell asleep. About 4 o'clock 
Sunday morning he awoke with a ter- 
rible headache and noticed that certain 
papers in the room were in disorder, 
but on acoount of the pain in his head 
paid no special attention to the fact 
and went back to bed. After a time 
he again fell asleep and did not wake 
again until the maid called him for 
breakfast, when he discovered that his 
handsome gold watch, containing a 
miniature of his wife and valued at 
$500, was missing, and with it a 
diamond ring set in a Masonic em- 
blem and $45 in money. He at once 
reported the fact to Dr. Jones, and an 
investigation developed the fact that 
the burglars had forced the window to 
the room, having previously attempted 
to enter the house by a rear window. 

Cashier Robbed. 
Cashier Stradford of the Western 
Railroad at Montgomery is short $500 
as a result of the quick work of a thief. 
The cashier counted out the $500 in 
bills, and placing them in an envelope, 
he carefully sealed it, preparatory to 
placing it in the express office for 
shipment to the general office in At- 
lanta. There was no one in the office 
with the cashier at the time and he 
left the package on his desk near a 
window and stepped out into the hall- 
way to call a porter by whom to send 
his valuable package to the express 
office. When the cashier returned 
the package and money were gone, 
and no trace of it has been found. 
Tho theory of the disappearance is 
that the window to the office was raised 
and the money package slipped out. 

Siias P. Rather Dies Suddenly. 

State Senator Silas P. Rather died 
suddenly at 3:10 Saturday afternoon 
at his home in Decatur. The Senator 
had been in ill health for manymonths, 
but took to his bed only Friday, and 
while it was generally known that his 
health was rapidly failing, yethismos* 
intimate friends did not anticipate 
that he was so near to death's door. 
At his death bed were two physicians 
and several friends. The attending 
physicians say that death was due tc 
heart failure. 

Senator Rather was born at Somer- 
ville February 18, 1846, and Morgan 
County has been his constant home, 
He came from a family of lawyers, and 
his ancestors were among the earliest 
settlers of north Alabama. 

J. W. Eubank Commits Suicide. 
James Walker Eubank, of Birming- 
ham, aged 25, ended his life Fridaj 
morning at 9:30 o'clock by sending a 
bullet from a 38 calibre pistol through 
his brain. He is said to have been 
despondent for some time over the 
condition of his health and the fact 
that he was temporarily out of employ- 
ment, and that is supposed to have 
been the cause of the rash act. 

Skilled Workmen Arrive, 
A number of workingmen from 
Niles, Ohio, who will be worked in the 
Bessemer and Ensley districts, ar- 
rived Friday over tho Alabama Great 
Southern railroad. There were twen- 
ty-four men in the party, and they 
will go to work in the puddling de" 
partment of the Bessemer miils, 

Ensley's Steel Mill. 
Five of the furnaces at the steel 
mill have been in steady operation 
for the past six days and a good 
record was made for the week. 
Wednesday one of the new mechani- 
cal gas producers was put into com- 
mission and on the day following the 
five furnaces turned out nearly 600 
tons of steel, which surpasses all for- 
mer records. Beginning next week 
the entire gas plant, including the 
two new producers, will be brought 
into service, and two additional fur- 
naces put into commission, with the 
blooming mill running night and day. 


Report that a Turpentine Camp 
is Destroyed. 


New Industries at New Dectur and 

Sixty Men Burn to Death in Alabama 
Turpentine Camp. 
A dispatch from Mobile, Ala., dated 
March 15th, says: A crowd of citizens 
of this place are searching Baldwin 
county in an effort to find three ne- 
groes, who, in a spirit of revenge, are 
said to have burned a turpentine camp 
across the bay this morning, causing 
the death of sixty white men and ne- 
groes. Frank C . Prissier rowed to 
Mobile this morning, attired only in 
his underwear and suffering intensly 
from burns. He was the only person 
who escaped from the burning camp. 
He said; 

"I was asleep this morning when a 
choking sensation and intense heat 
aroused me. The log shack in which 
the sixty negroes slept was on fire, as 
was a shed near by, filled with two 
hundred barrels of raw turpentine. 
The trees surrounding us were also 

"I yelled to the men as I ran, but 
none answered, and I am sure all per- 
ished. I made my way, barefooted, 
over live coals to the swamp, where I 
found a boat, and in this I rowed to 
the oity. The camp wa» doubtless 
fired by three negros who were dis- 
chared yesterday. They threatened 
to obtain revenge." 


Improvements Will be Made in the 
Machine Works at That Place. 

The Ivens Machine Works at New 
Decatur, which was built here in boom 
days by Ivens & Sons of New Orleans, 
and which was recently sold to Nash- 
ville parties for the sum of $10,000, is 
to become one of the most extensive 
machine works and foundries in the 
south and will add materially to the 
manufacturing interests of New De- 
catur. Extensive improvements have 
recently been made on the buildings 
and about the grounds, while consid- 
erable new machinery has been added 
to the machine shop, and more is to 
follow. The proprietors will also es- 
tablish a brick factory here with a 
capacity of 80,000 brick a day. The 
brick plant and the foundry and ma- 
chine shop will give employment to 
fully 300 men. The machine shop and 
foundry are now in operation, but at 
present are only employing a small 
force of men. The name of the plant 
has been changed to the North Ala- 
bama Engineering Company.
