BE SLOW IN REDUCING THE in
Quite astir was created at the Plant- w
ers' meeting last Tuesday by a reso- 1h
fution introduced by .Mr. Jesse Nalle at
for the purpose of appointing a com- ej
mittee of five, one merumber for each aI
ward of the parish, to confer with the 9
Assessor and the Police Jury in order es
to reduce the assessment of lands. $;
Mr. Nolle broglht torth plausible and a.
mnuch-telling argurneuts to show that it,
property is asscessed too high in the til
parlshi, and gave as an example the th
Lake place sold by Mrs. S. F. Davis to in
Mr. J. W. Dunn, which sold for $4000 st
but was assessed $6360. As it is
usually the case in every mass-meet- Js
Ing, in which resolutions cut and
dry, are lntroduced and the people
have no time for reflection, whclt SI
especially, in hard times like these, the
resolution is one that will keep few
dollars in the pockets, Mr. Nalle's reso- in
lauion was unanimously adopted b,
T'me brings counsel, however, and t
e cool-headed, thoughtful citizen who i
for one hour can forget that he owns
a plantation and pays taxes, will look is
at this resolutlon in a very different
light than he did then, and without at
much persuasion, he wIll come to the j,
eonclueloa that he had better leave
well enough alone.
Lands ia the 6th La. District Levee o
Board (for this is the territory in o
which we are especially concerned), t
Gave a standard value, about the same fc
all over the district, the result of b
agreemeuts between the Assessor and tl
the planter on one side, soad the Police a
Jury on the other. The average t
assessment of lands in this parish is '
$0 an acre for cleared lauds, $12 to s
$16 for woodlands and 60 cents an acre e
for swamp lands. At so time but the 11
present has the assessment been con- t
eldered too high but by very few in
dlvidnals, and no planter, though he t
was supposed to take an oath as to eo e
wpb value of his plantatiou, would
have been willing to sell it for what it I
Property. It is true, has decreased I1n
value in an unprecedented way, and t
to no other cause could it be attrib
ited than to the fuancial crisis our
country Is undergoing, which affects
the price of every staple, and especial- 4
ly the price of cotton. Only once be.
lfre lathe history of cotton planting, t
did cotton go down lower that it did a
this year, and it was in 1841, when it
fell down to three cents a pound, and y
this year that abntormal price of the
staple crop of our region Lit clogged i
every wheel, andi as .a couequence, I
depreciated the value of lands in such
a way that they have nio cash or I
market value. As Mr. Johu Pittmnau I
esprvssed it so well last Tuesday at i
the Planters' meeting, it is cheaper to I
ret lands now than to own them.
However, the telihug lunstance brought
brth by Mr. Naill to substantiate his
resolution for the reduction of assess- 1
masts, has little logical value, and
thus merits little consideration. Last
week, .two good mares were sold in
Miadlon parish for *10 a piece, and it
does not follow from this that owners
of horses In thts and Madison parish
w'ill couclude that their horses have
only as iatriusic value of $10 a piece,
though they might not find a ready
market for all of them, even at that
l'leo. Every one admits that though
reateatate ha lost nothing of its in
trinsic value, yet it has no market
value, and that consequently this is
the very worse lino to offer it for
ski. IfMrs. Davis sold her property
ta ater lflce, at two-thirds of what It
.asesemd,ilt wan ol course, because
se fooud it to hey interest to do so,
atn becaea she may invest the money
I, brought to her elewhere, to a bet
re dvanrtage. It does not follow
*es t1lk that her action is a criterion
lago by in the value of real estate.
S d'oot sappoe for a moment
th if Mr. alles foond a buyer for his
.i4 aeIt estate, which ee have no

away the levee tax. the cotton tax an I
the acreage tax and no one would or
should complain. But lake these en
tire taxes away and life in the district
is not worth living, and we have just
as well abandon our lands. One tax
alone is ruinous and should be abol
ished, anid th.it is the acreage tax, the
other taxes are a neccsity.
Mr. Nalle suggested that e-onomy
in the parish affairs should be prac
ticed. We have no fear to be gainsaid
when we assert that our Police Jury
with the resources at their command.
have done as well anttd directed the
affairs of the parish as well as could be
expected. No one could certainly
accuse them of having been lavish.
We have before us the budget of 1895
estimated to be $12,396, including
$2625 of outstanding approved claims
against the parish, and none of the
items appears unreasonable. On scru
tinizing the budget, however, we find
that the estimated expenses for carry
ing on the court are as follows:
Shertif's fees In criminal matters.. $ 500 00
Witness' less ..................... 1000 00
Jurors' tees........... ........... 1000 00
Jail fees .......... ...... ..... 1500 00
Sheriff's fees for serving processes
outside. conveying convicts to
penitentiary and lunatics to say
lum s .... ........................ 400 00
Sheriffs.fees for waiting on court..$ 250 00
Total ....... ............... 4650 00
Taking out the $2,625.00 outstand
ing claims against the parish from the
budget of 1895,.or $12,395.00, we find
that is estimated by our Police Jury
that it will take very nearly half of
the budget of next year for the admin
istration of justice and the mainte
nance of the prisoners. It is a crying
shame, but in this matter the Police
Jury is helpless, for what can they do?
When it takes front $50 to $75 to try
and perhaps not convict a negro ac
cused of stealing a chicken, other petty
offences in like manner, the parish has
to pay and the Police Jury to provide
for it. All such petty offences should t
f be tried by Justices of the Peace in I
Itheir respective wards, thus doing I
D away with the summoning of wit
Dnesses, witnesses' and- jurors' fees.
s This is a radical defect in the Judiciary
D system, which should have been rem
e edied at the last session of the Legis
elature. Meantime the tax-payers have
to pay for that defective system.
The budget shows that $12,395 have
e to be raised on a total assessment of
e $1,012,834, and as the Police Jury can
not raise but a ten-mill tax. it will
,t leave yet, if their estimate be correct,
a deficit of $2,267 In the treasury at
u the end of 1895. Useless to say then
d that they can levy a tax less than ten
r Apart from this Consideration, if the
a parish assessment is reduced, say, to
- $10 on opeu lands, why should the
other parishes it the levee district pay
g, taxes on the same lands at an assess
d meut rate of $20? Why should they
it pay taxes on swamp lands assessed at
d $1 as they are in Madison parish, if the
e assessment on ours is reduced from
d 50 cents to 10 cents an acre? Owing
e, to the peculiar position we occupy in
h the district, at the head of the system,
ir t has been the wise policy of the
n Levee Board to spend in Carroll par
t ish a great deal more money than
o in the other parishes, whilst we
. pay less taxes than eash one of them
t does. If we begin reducing the assesas
is meut of lands in this parish, will it not
- be the policy and logical consequence
d of our action for the other parishes to
t reduce also their assessments; and
i then, without revenues, what will be
it come of our levees ?
S- It is well now to speak of reducing
h the revenues when the river isat a low
e ebb and the sand bars look so com
e, forting;but later on the mighty river
ly may come and crawl inuch by inch on
t our neglected levees, and then the par
sh and the Levee Board will have to
- raise money at a big interest, and do
et work at a high price, or let the levee
is go, drowning cattle and people per
r haps, carrying off every improvement,
y ruining our lands, and destroying our
It last hope.
e Before you do anything rashly,
o, gentlemen of the Police Jury, take
y your time, think, reflect and consider
,t See every feature of reducing the as
, Isessment, and take it into your minds
n I that, when it is noised abroad that the
Police Jury of East Carroll parisb,
it i after advistug with the Assessor anud
isl at the request of the people, have
so come to the conclusion that the best
d lands in the pariah are only worth $10
nc an acre. then, by that very fact, you
or will have stopped every borrowing of
It, money on those lands, and the furnish

the fortune teller herself, is handsome,
and looks just like a gypsy. She is
somewhat large, with rich, dark com
plexion, intense brown eyes, and black,
black hair. Several chubby gypsy child
red play near the margin of the water.
They too, are good looking; that is,
they have bright eyes and very red
lips. But the ",dust of ages"covers the
roses on their cheeks. Outside of the
tent, the husband and another man sit,
Ismoking, on a broken down wagon.
They seem contented, and strange to
say, not in the least excited over the
fortunes which the woman is telling.
A'nd how does she tell them?
At first, she keeps quiet, as if she
"could look into the seeds of time and
say which grains will grow and which
will not." Then, she takes your left
hand and reads its lines; every now
and then, however, glancing at your
I face. "*Can you look me in the eyes
and say you don't like a brunette man
better than a blonde?" she asks. You
answer you like the brunette better.
S"He is away from here,"she continues,
"-but you will get a letter from him
within a week. Can you say you and
r the brunette have never written?"
"No! ",No. Ah,but the lady is laugh
ing; she jokes. You and the brunette
have writen, but a few letters, three or
a four have been lost; a rival stole them."
o Then the lady laughs sure enough.
".You will marry the brunette man,"
she says. "Do you go with a blonde
girl, you think your friend?" ."Yes!"
I, "Ah, go no more with her, she is a
r deadly enemy. There is money com
ing to you," she continues. "Money
that you don't expect; a present too.
, You will cross water-not in trouble,
0 but joy. Your life will be happy in
r' the main part,but you will have a little
Ssorrow; the hand says so; a little sor
row. There it is," and she points to
the life line; the line beginning be
o tween the thumb and fore finger, and
, reaching to the wrist. ,"Yes, the line
d says sorrow; see, it is broken, the sor
row will be in early life." Now put
your thumb in the middle of your
it palm and say after me these words."
0 Hero follow' three words in Heathen
u Chinese. or dog Latin. "There-you
shall have health, wealth and happin
ess." And a bright smile is on the
" handsome gypsy face. Then the ex
h pression becomes pleading. "*Can't

poor little girl so wants a bit of rib
