A strange thing so far this season is
the fact that rno corn has been brought

TEE LAST DAY OF THE FAIR.
The annual fair of the East Carroll
Fair Association closes this evening.
T'ha't it has been a complete success in
every feature is parent to all. Our
people deserve great credit for the eu
tbuslaatn they have manifested, and
those who bSve visited us and cou
tributed exhibits. have our sincere
thanks. We cannot go into the details
until next week, but we will say this
-that Lake Providouce has done it
self great, and that.the parish ot East
Carroll demonsbtrated that its people
can put up as good a fair as any por
tiuuon of the Stcte. We have a fine
country, possessing great natural
advantages, and capable of the highest
state of development. Our fair has
proven that we are on the road to an
advanced stage of agricultural im
provenient, and that great possibilities
lie in store for us.
We hope that next year our annual
fair will eclipse even the one which
draws to a close to-day, and that each
succeeding year will mark great
strides in the march of improvement.

On Monday Mr. James McCulloch,
of Cottonwood, brought us in some of t
the new cotton that hIe planted this
year, and from the looks of it, it can't
be beat. It is called the Russell Big
Boll Prolific, or Ozier bender. The
boils are very large and the seed'
black and oily, while the cotton holds
well to the pod. It is not long staple,
but is an excellent short staple cotton,
and is said to be an excellent variety a
for our planters to plant. Mr. Mc
Culloch had 1770 pounds of. seed cot
ton which made a hale of cotton
weighing 600 pounds net. Thlsshows t
what it can do, and the cotton will C
make a bale and a half to two bales to
the acre. Mr. S. Cohen, the cotton
man, purchased the bale, paying 9J cts.
The steamer Hill City, the largest
steamer on the Missls-ippi, struck at
snag just below the Memphis bridge I
last Saturday about 12 o'clock, and
sank. The boat had a heavy load and a
was drawing over eight feet, and set
tied down in a little over nine feet,
which put the water just over her F
lower deck. The boat will be raised.
Quite a number of our merchants had b
arge shipments on her with very little
insurance We hope that the most of
the Providence freight was above her
boiler deck and that our merchants
will not lose anything by her sinking.
1 Il have just received a"
barge load of fine ,

The trade from across the river this I
season has been the best for many
years, and our merchants are doing l
everything possiblle to draw customers
from that directiou. Fair anid square I
dealing is their motto, and the people E
who can come from across the river
will find the prices to compare witht
either Vicksburg or Greenville. Our
merchants want their trade, and they
will be treated right. There Is no
town the size of Providence where the
merchants carry larger stocks of
goods, and as to prices they will com
pete with any one.

the most liberal ofiers that can posi

A MONUMENT TO OUR CONFED
When Mr. Jas. S. Milliin was in
Springfield, Mo., last September, he
yisitedt the beautiful grounds of the
Confederate cemetery in that city, and
was very much impressed with the
noble attempts made by its citizens to
adorn and beautify the grounds. In
this cemetery lie the bones of the Con
federate dead who fell in the battle of
Wilson's Creek or Oak Hills. Wil
son's Creek was one of the bloodiest
battles of the civil war. It was fought
near Springfield. Although great val
or was displayed on both sides, the
Confederates won the day. In this
battle the Third Louisiana regiment
took an important part and lost a great
many men. It was commanded by
Col. Hlebert. The Monticello Rifes
belonged to the'l'Third Louisiana regi
ment, Major Sam Richards, Captain.
Most of the men composing this com
pany wvere citizens of Carroll and the
surrounding parishes, a considerable
numbers of whom are still living.
While Mr. Millikin was in Spring
field, he was authorized to raise in
East Carroll something on the fund
for the erection of a monument to the
Confederate dead in this cemetery at
Springfield. lie has already made
some efforts in this direction, and we
hope he will succeed in sending on a
respectable sum of money from this
parish. We believe that all the old
veterans will respond to a call which
will stir in their breasts the memories
of that tragic struggle, the equal of
which the world has never seen. We
believe that the Confederate Camp
here will contribute something. as will
also the Daughters of the Confederacy.
Any one wishing to contribute to
this fund will forward their contri
butions to Mr. Jas. S. Millikin. who
will gladly send it on to Springfield.
We hope the gentleman will succeed
in his laudable efforts; and that when
the monument rises in glory above the
sacred dust of our heroes, the people of
East Carroll can have the satisfaction
of knowing that they helped, by their
mite, to erect it.
Mr. Millikin was a member of the
celebrated command of Colonel Quan
trelle, which did heroic service in the
cause of the South. He was a gal
lant soldier, and we feel assured that
an appeal from him to the patriotism
of our people will result in a liberal
donation being sent forward. Citizens,
give to a good cause-to a monument
