Footlets of the World's
Ben Franklin once made the
statement, "Schools teach us the rudi
ments of language, but books teach
us how to think; therefore, no man
is truly educated unless he is a rea
der of books." Ben was right, but
he lived in so age when books were
so scarce, comparatively speaking,
that but little of the pernicious in
literature was tolerated. But in
these days it is different. Your boys
thirst for a knowledge of the world
and if you don't give them some
wholesome reading to slake that
thirst, they will get hold of cheap,
sensational stories that will poison
their minds and do them terrible
There is such a vast amount of
this trasly stuff being poured into
the market at the present.time, that
it is a relief to pick up a new book
that is at once thrilling, romantic,
wholesome, pure and true.
Such a work is "Footprints of the
World's History," the latest and
greatest work of the two celebrated
historians, John Clark Ridpath and
Wm. S. Bryan. These distinguished
gentlemen, having won their laurels
by independent writings, have co
operated on this work, and produced
a gem "of the purest ray serene."
It is not a dry, uninteresting state
mient of the plain facts, but rather
each of the most important events of
history has been taken up and de
scribed by a master of language,
who holds the reader entranced as
he. wends his way along the path of
history, following carefully in the
footprints of progress.
We are delighted with this superb
volume. Perfect in thought, superb
in style, and magnificent in execu
tion. The buildings are sumptuous
as are also the " mang illustrations
and colored plates.
It is a val.able addition to litera
ture. It is a book for the old as
well as the younr; the married
as well as the single; the way as
well as the grave. It is sold only
through agents, and the Publishers'
advertisement appear in another

Never were words more fitly put
together than those used by Chief
Justice Peter Turne-, of Tennessee,
in delivering an opinion on a case :
"Technicalities should never be
employed as shields for wrong, but
only for the protection of merit.
When they present themselves as
barriers to justice, courts should
without hesitation cut through
them to the right'that ends and the
purpose of equity and good con
science may be attcined'and served."

courtesy of author a copy of the ad- -
dress delivered by Senator T. T.
Allain, of the parish of lberville, be
fore the Tuscogee Normal Institute
of Alabama, on the 28th of May last.
This address shows that the Senator
is well read in history and that he is
an orator of no ordinary abily. He
solves the negro problem thuE f He -
advises the colored people to regard
the Southerp white people as their
best friends, to give their children a

advice, and if the negroes will do as
they are advised by Mr, Allain, they

The editor of the Morgan City
Review is in luck. He has found
something. He says : During our
sojourn on the sands of Last Island,
it was our good fortune to become
the possessor of a handsome and
valuable souvenir of our visit to that
historic place. Our trea*e is in
the form of a large fand exceedingly
heavy plate, presumably a dessert
plate, in the old blue and white
china so familar to our older cit "
zens but now gone out a4 use.
It was found on the outer beach
and almost on the site of the hotel
or one of the cottages which was
washed away in the storm of '56,
abd is perfectly intact with its colors
undimmed notwithstanding its 85
years interment in the storm tossed
sands. It is of the Davenport pat
tern and is a handsome specimen of
the potters art.

pugned the Democracy of he Farm'

pure Democrat and calls upon his
critics to give a true history of their
political action since the war. In
calling on them to show a their
hands the Vidette says:
We must admire one thing about
these great editors, it is their great
self-sacrifice. At least two of them
have been washed in the waters of
regeneration and have come oat
with all their old sins-carpet-bags
and all-washed away, and they
have become as white as snow. So
great has been the purification and
elevation of these regenerated saints
of Democracy that they have set
themselves up as the arbiters of the
