tho ta( INicrinatiive ran in to Huoer,
iet during this shirt time our town for
buiiOess and genteral ilmprovement hasn
4urpaasstl the exac4tationst of its muost
. saguino wel-wishira. The crowded
Iorse racks, the lung train of tfirn
wagons bearing Iro lieryey staple, the
quick step of tlhe imerchaut.man, I he
nuoi.e and bu: tlo of the street', all be
takens the s'gitni etint f'ict that Humer
is fast regaining her lost trade that was
haen in foroner years.
Our Inerehants farseeing and zealous
Sof tlheir own uttrcet, ore paying even
more for cotton than its actnal market
tvalue nd selling goods a. chealnp as any
I town in this State outside of Now Or
vleans. These indnccnents raust and
will attract trade, for no reacona
ble mtitan will go beyond the boun:ds of
Iis own parish to tradoe when he can do
as ucell and even better at home.
S The umost trouble we have now is in
getting our demuaud for luiaber suppli
Sed. Now citizens ate seeking homes
e with ms every week antd themr is a great
cartity fur dwelling houses, notwitli
stantldipg about fifty new ones, some of
which are now in construction, hav e
beenl built this year. Let every citi

strive to make our towin wlhat it. shounldi

Another Assisslnatluu.
Merideth FoIrd, the ..lored man shot
on the Neeley place a week ago l;anst
Saturdiay night, died lust Thursday
from the efl'cts of the ihooting. It
seems that the deceased attended a
pi rty on the night. of the sh::oting :u:d
whilu en his way honme was hot down
from his horao by soae nuiknown par
ties who had secretedt themselves in
:atbnsh n. ai thb r.ad-sidn. There is
no positive evideue. as to who did the
shiuoting, although Wesley and WVillie
'Smith, two brothers, Ihave been charg
,ed with the ofeane and are now in jail
awaiting the action of the Orand Jnry.
This is a cold blooded assassination a:ndl
the guilty parties, whoever they may
be, should he visited with the severiest
pecnalty of the law, howeover, the par
ties above mentioned should not, by
the publie, be adjudiged guilty antil
hrlit hide of the case Ihas been heard.,
Edncntion is !he chief corner stone of
rmaterial prozress. hlomer should be
come a great centre of learnin-. For
bealth and morals it is unsurp:ssed,
being in tl: etslremo i.orthern part of
the State aucnd' further removed than
any other place of inmport:ance, from
the malarial i'ullnences of the swamp
country. Its natural position givesit an
advantage in this respect over any
other townl in the State. It in fatal to
the best interest of a community both
materially, socially, and politically, to
neglect this great cealing interest aside
from the moral turpitude in failing to
properly shape the tminds of the rising
gen ration.
We laibored under considerable d.fi
