Mobile, Ala., March 3. Information
has reached Mobile by telephone, all
telegraph wires being down, that a de
structive - tornado visited Meridian,
Miss., at 6 30 last evening, killing 21
j white people and a hundred negroes,
and damaging property to the extent
'of $1,500,000. There are also scores
seriously injured by being caught in the
! wreckage of houses.
' The tornado caught the city on the
southwest and travelled to the north
least, expending itself in two suburbs,
where many negroes were killed and in
jured, a whole tenement district being
wined out. "
Two large wholesale stores, several
smaller ones, part of the principal hotel,
the electric light plant and all the small
property -between the Mobile and Ohi
Railroad and the business section of the
city was badly damaged. Twenty men
were caught in one restaurant, and
several were killed. Two stores of the
Y. M. C, A. building were wrecked and
other buildings suffered in the upper
stories. The negro tenement district
north of the city was demolished, ar.d
the debris caught nre,lhreateninganew
danger, but the local department, with
the help of hundreds of citizens over
came this after a hard, fight They
were assisted by a torrential rain fol
lowing the tornado.
The city is in darkness and the full
extent of the disaster will not be known
until daylight The known path of the
storm was about six hundred feet wide
and one mile in length.
Whtrs Youthful Offenders
Trial According
Get Separate
Washington, D. C, MchB. An ef
fort is being made in Washington as in
several other cities to introduce the
Juvenile Court by which youthful of
fenders will be granted separate trials
and accorded punishment according to
their age and their experience in crime.
The experiment has been so thoroughly
tested in New York, Chicago, St Louis
and notably in Denver, where Judge
Ben Lindsay presides over this tribunal
that it is conceded to be a necessary
part of the Government of all large
- cities. Seven years ago there was not
a juvenile court in the country but
, they are now regarded as the only ef
fective and humans way of treating
.youthful offenders end Jan one of the
most important judicial reforms of the
century. They are founded on the pre
sumption that tho child delinquent is
not a criminal and that he shall not be
treated as a criminal and its object is
to reclaim each child brought before it
. to useful citizenship. ' Th idea of pun
inhment is.climinated as far as possible
and the commitment to reform schools
ii the last resort : The bill to estab
Jifih such a court in the District of
Columbia is now before Congress and
has already passed the Senate.

With Crusted Scaly Eczema1 When

mother was. advised -by a druggist

was one crust of sores from head to

off my body; and my finger and toe nails
fell. After -using six cakes of Cuticura
Soap and about as much Cuticura Oint

"About three years ago my face be

Ointment, and Pill, and in three
months my skin was soft and smooth,
and the pimples have all disappeared

. Cotton Letter
Special to Journal.
Greensboro, March 8. The sentiment
about cotton for a month or more has
been extremely bearish, and those who
have bad courage sufficient to say any
thing favorable have been in a very
small minority. Therefore, the selling
by disgusted bulls and confident bears
has met little check, although the de
mand by spinners has been tremendous
and seems to expand as the market
declines. This trade demand is the of the market, so yesterday
when a prominent operator gave out
some figures about the amount ginned,
the trading talent seemed to at once' real
ize thit selling cotton short at 10 J cents,
with spinners buying everything of
fered at a reasonable basis, was a dif
ferent thing from selling at 12 cents,
when the buyers were a promiscuous
lot of misinformed and mistaken ipecu
lators. The statistical facts about cot
ton, are sure to become bullish before
the season is over, and a big crop is
needed for next year. The thing weigh
ing most against the market now is.
the accuniution of low grades, for
which there is no particular demand,
this may change at any time. We con
tinue to think from a merchantile
standpoint that cotton is worth what it
is fetching, and chances favor a farther
