Jackson's water supply was cut off from ten o'clock last night until shortly before nine o'clock this morning. No previous warning had been given of intention to cut off supply while repairs were being made at the plant, and as a consequence thousands of citizens were unprepared this morning.

BARKSDALE DEAD ONE OF JACKSON'S MOST BE - LOVED WOMEN PASSES AWAY. Widow of the Late Major Ethelbert Barksdale A Long and Eventful Life Brought to a Close Funeral Takes Place Saturday. Mrs. Jane Barksdale, widow of the late Major Ethelbert Barksdale, died at the residence of her daughter, Mrs. George K. Harrington, on North President street, shortly before ten o'clock this morning, after an illness of several weeks. The passing away of this sainted wo man removes one of the few remaining ties that link the capital city' of the present with Jackson of the past, and a volume of interesting history could be written of ihe memorable "events with Which her earthly career- h.ts been more or less directly connected. The deceased was the widow of Major Ethelbert Barksdale, "the Sir Robert Peel, of Mississippi," a statesman and journalist whose life work is indissolnbly associated with the history of the state just prior to and immediately following the civil war. He was a member of the Confederate congress, and as the editor of the Jackson Clarion played a conspicuous part in the crusaifc against carpetbagger rule, and the bringing of order out of chaos during the dark days that followed the period of civil strife. Mrs. Barksdale had reached the advanced age of eighty-one years. She was born at Rutherford, Tenn., on the 12th of February. 1820, the family afterwards removing to Mississippi and locating in Holmes county, where she was wooed and won by the brilliant and dashing young journalist who was destined to play such a conspicuous part in the affairs of the commonwealth In later yearE. After the death of her distinguished husband, Mrs. Barksdale made her home with her only surviving daughter, Mrs. George K. Harrington, and for the past decade she had been surrounded with every loving care ami kindly attention by devoted relatives, to whom she was a living benediction and a blessing. One son, Mr. Edwin Barksdale is surviving. The fuueral will take place at the family residence on North President street Saturday morning at half past ten o'clock, the services being conducted by Bishop Charles B. Galloway, after which the remains will be Interred in Greenwood cemetery. Chairman S. IX McXalr, of the railroad commission, leaves tomorrow morning for, Hrookhaven, where he will confer with the business men of that place, who have requested that the railroads JMtaWMjiired to provide better passenger depot facilities. Mr. McNair, believes that the railroads should be required to build a union station at Hrookhaven, as three roads now enter that place, and after ascertaining the sentiment of the citizens of Brookhaven he will take up the matter with the officials of the three roads.

IT STARTS TOMORROW ! JONES-KEN N I NGTON ANNOUNCE THEIR BIG SALE One Quarter of a Million Dollars Worth of Fine Merchandise is to Be Offered to Shopper at Marvel ously Low Prices. One of the greatest mercantile events in the history of the south will be inaugurated Saturday morning at eight o'clock at the mammoth " store of the Joues-Kennington Dry Goods Company, corner of Congress and Capitol streets. A quarter of a million dollars worth of merchandise is to be placed on sale at prices that are nothing short of astonishing, it will be a sacrifice sale in every detail, the chance of a life-time to secure the finest qualities of goods at prices marvelously low, in many instances below the actual tos't of delivery In Jackson from the large markets of the east. The sale will attract thousands of shoppers to Jackson from the surrounding towns, and it therefore behooves the local shoppers to be on hand the first day and make their selections. The slock is large, the largest, in fact, ever carried by a mercantile establishment in this city, and the firm has expended nearly one thousand dollars in advertising the sale outside of Jackson, which means that the people in the surrounding trade territory will come to Jackson by the hundreds each day to take advantage of the marvelous bargains. It would require many columns of newspaper space to adequately describe . the , many exceptional opportunities, to buy the best goods on the market at astonishingly low-prices. An idea may be gained from the display advertising of the firm, but even 'this is insufficient. The opportunity can be realized only by attending the sale and seeing what the firm has to offer. Remember, the sale starts propt- ly Rt eight o'clock Saturday morning. Go early. IS KUROKI GEN. MACDONALD? An Impossible Tale That Comes From Bazaars of India. Bombay. A curious tale is going the rounds of the bazaars In India. It is believed by every native that Gen. Kuroki, the niarvedous Japanese commander, is no other than Sir Hector Macdonald. Many persons have never believed that the brilliant English general is dead, and not long ago there appeared in the Ixindou Times an offer of a reward of $3,000 to any one who had seen his dead body. It is also a fact, that Sir Hector was once invited to go to Japan to train the Japanese army, and he actually mentioned it to Lord Roberts. No honor has ever been publicly bestowed upon Kuroki, who appears to have vanished as suddenly and mysteriously as he appeared. Even the Japanese, with all their reticence, confessed to a correspondent that Kuroki had much foreign blood in him. and the American journalist declared he was a Dutchman. Rudyard Kipling first, lifted the vei' showing a little of the mysterious workings of the Indian bazaars. The celerity with w hich they spread rumors of events taking place at great distances is familiar to all Anf'.o Indian residents, but invariably baffling to them. Tlits mutiny of the Sepoys was known throughout India almost as soon as it occurred, and it h!is been an unexplained mystery up to date how the information waa so rapidly disseminated. Both the life and death of Sir Hector Macdonald were full of romance and mystery. His exact age is not known; the circumstances of his death and burial are obscure. What is known is that Macdonald was a Scotch crofter lad, that he enlisted in 1S71 and that he served in the ranks 10 years. His rise to a major general and K. C. B. was the result of pure soldiering. In the Afghan campaign, at Kabul, on Majuba Hill and at Amdurmau he won fights and fame. After the Boer campaign he was given a high command in India, ami then in liHKl came the report that he had suddenly left Hindu-stain "on private business." On this business he reached Paris, and there read in a newspaper that, he was to stand a court martial on "grave charges." Then came the report that immediately on reading this paragraph he went lo his room and shot himself. At first it was decided that, the general was to bo buried in Paris, but a new surprise appeared in the person of his widow, of whose existence the war office did not know. By the express wish of Lady Macdonald the body or as rumor says now, the coffin was sent, to London and unceremoniously huddled away to Scotland in a baggage van. The body, or the coffin, a public cemetery at, 0,,'UI In the morning. The coffin was not opened from the time it left, the Paris hotel. Special Cor. American-Journal Examiner.
