Tried Carbolic Acid.
A friend of ours, on the other
side of the river not far from
I here, has a good many bogs, and
among them that dreaded dis
ease, hog cholera, frequently
ravages, causing him considera
and much worry. The
other day,, a rager passing
through the country told him
that a tablespoonful of crude car
bolic acid in milk was a sure
cure. Our friend, glad to find a
.cure for the hitherto-considered
incurable disease, at oice ac
ceptted the remedy, and wrote to
Dr. VanHorn here for a pint of
the stuff, accompanying the or.
der with this question: "Will a
tablespoonful of crude carbolic
acid KILL anythingp" The doctor
sent the acid and wrote in an
swer: "Yes. A tablespoonful of
crude carbolic acid will kill ANY
THING." Our friend, though,
thought he would risk the ex
periment on three of his afflicted
porkers, and proceeded to ad
minister the prescribed dose to
them. After he had drenched
the first hog and let him up, he
turned hisattention to the second
one. By this time thrfirst hog
was dead; and by the time he
got through with the third one,
the second one was ditto. The
third victim lost about as little
time as his predecessors in join
ing the big majority. Our friend
iow saysrat be Is satisfied on
two points: One, that crude car
bolio acid will BILL; the other,
that crude carbolic acid will cURE
cholera, and that the stranger
was right; for, when be got
through the physicing process,
every cholera germ was killed,
and the hogs were-dead. But
he don't thtnk. he will try that
remedy any more.
Preventive fe rHog Cholera
Owing to the prevalence of
hog* cholera of late years by
which our farmers have met with
much peconiary loss, Truth ap
plied to Mr. Charles Schuler, of
DeSoto parish, one of the most
successful raiters of hog and
hominy in this State and who is
known as a remarkably Intelli.
I gent and progressive farmer, for
the remedy employed by him in
checking the ravages of the fatal
disease in question and in an
swer received the followiog:
K'a omE, La., March 10, 1894.
Dear 8ir-Acoording to prom
lis made you at Q)alhoun last
mronly called cholera.
'to two gallons offinely hoop.
pod polkroot add one gallon of
water; boil until well done. Mix
some meal or wheat bran with it
and let cool Then let the hogs
eat as muich as they cboose.
A twenty.fve gallon pot hold
ing two-thirds root and one-third
water will be suident for say 30
hogs as one dose. Repeat the
dose for three or four weeks.
Polkroot should be used roma
the middle of March to middle of
May, it belng almost worthless
later iu the season. Be certain
that the polkroot tea is strong. I
aveused the remedy for five
years with perfeet success.
With kindest regrds.

Of Citizens of Caldwell Parish,
CALDWELL PABISH, LA.,
March 14th, 18943
We, the undersigned citizens
and taxpayers of Oaldwell Parish,
La., herein protest against The
action of the Police Jury of tiis
Parish in authorizing a ten thou
sand dollar courthouse to be built
for the parish, by levying a tax
on property holders thereof, with
out first consulting said taxpay
ers as to building such an expen
sive courthouse, under the Im
poverished condition of the peo
Sple brought about by short crops,
Soverflows and low prices of cot
I ton, obtained the past few years.
And more ps ticularly do.we
protest against the action of yoiur
building committee, created by
-your honorable body, in ma g
a contract for the buildin of
soti, or persons, with
vertising plans, and specifca
tions, to the lowest responsible
bidder for said building, thus giv
ing free competition, and giving
I our own citizens, as wefl"as
others, an opportunity to bid on
Now, therefore,unless thiscon
Stract, which we understand is
made, he cancelled and set aside,
ior a public mass meeting of citi
I zens and taxpayers be convened
to obtain their opinion . and
wishes as to the building of such
an expensive courthouse, we
hereby give notice to the Police
Jury, and all others herein con
cerned, that we shall resist the
enforcement of the payment of
any such increased taxation upon
any or all such taxable property
that may be or is liable to tax
ation under the laws of our State.
We, the undersigned citizens
and taxpayers, sincerely think
that a five thousand dollar build
ing for a courthouse, under all
the circumstances, giving to the
contractor the material of the
present, or old courthouse, would
be quite sufficient to warrant the
building of an adequate court.
