PROMOTERS OF PUBLIC GOOD.
Now that the fair is over, and
every one has seenl the good result i
of it, we take occasion to say a few t
words about those ot our citizens t
who were m(,st instrumr ntal in get- f
ting it up and conducting it to a
successful termination. As a gen
eral proposition, what is every
body's business is nobody's husiness,
and rtithing turns out well wihen
everybody in general and nobody in
particular are at the head of it.
Fortunately for the Fair Associ
ation, good business men have been
at the head of it-men who were
personally interested in its wel
From the first crude attempt last
year up to this fall, these men were
constantly at work making prepar
ations, and correslonding with peo
ple abroad, in regard to the fair
just closed. And to such an extent
was it advertised, that visitors from I
all our surrounding counties and I
parishes came to Lake Providence.
This gave them an opportunity to
see our town and to take cognizance
of the rapid improvements that have
been going on in tile past few years.
The result is, that Lake Providence
is better known to-day than ever I
Among those who have been par
ticularly active in the fair move
ments, are Messrs. Phil McGuire,
-president of the association, F. H.
Schneider, secretary, W. S. Ma
gaire, R. L. Hill and F. T. Con
stant. These gentlemen devoted a
great deal of their time to the inter- I
eat of the fair through the month I
of October and the first week of
November. Messrs. Maguire and
Schneider were untiring in their en
ergy. Mr. John L. Kennedy also
assisted materially in decorating the
Art Gallery and in arranging the
exhibits so as to show them to the
All these gentlemen above named
are publio benefactors, and they t
have demonstrated the old saying t
that, after all, a few do the work
and reap the success. We hope
that next year as many more will in
terest themselves as much; for in
this way our future fairs will he suc
cessful, and Lake Providence will
be known far and wide as the place
to go to when the fair is on.
The Banner-Democrat congrat- f
ulates the manatgers of the fair and r
wishes for the association abundant
success in the future.

THE SECOND ANNUAL FAIR OF THE j
EAST CARROLL FAIR ASSOCIATION.
The Second Annual Fair of the East
Carro;l Fair Association has passed in- T
to history-at least into the history of inst
East Carroll: and it will always be one racm
of its brighet pages, for it marks the E
beginning of ,n advanced stage in our wel
agricultural and internal development, Ben
which in years to come will bring con
forth the most gratifying and benfeficial
results. The fair is over, and those Tin
who were its promoters have the satis- Pur
faction of knowing that their efforts '1
have been well repaid, and th:4 the 3 I
public especially were highly pleased I
with every feature of the entire pro- Ira
gram during the three days. Not only but
were our home people loud in their bht
praises of the fair, but strangers from Kir
ahroad were especially complimentary. 1
For instance, Mr. Davis, the gentle- see
man from Vicksburg, representing the see
Vicksburg fair, stated to the editor 1
that Thursday and Friday were equal sec
to the average day of the Vicksburg cor
fiiir, and that East Carroll could well $7;
afford to be proud of her fair. Other 1
gentlemen from different states made tin
similar criticisms, and the universal I
(connsOus of opion was, that no part of Ha
the State of Louitiana, in proportion to 1V
population, has ever surpassed us in I
the quality of our exhibits or in the ex- Vt
cellent arrangement of the grounds
In the matter of exhibits, our people ry
are to be coumpliment-ed, and the ladies $2;
come in for a liberal aih;re, for they
contributedi not a little to the beautiful pau
display that ornamented the Art Gal
lery. There were magnificent speci- but
mens of agricultural and horticultural I)ii
products, and of special industries that I
have been recently inaugurated in the
parish. For instance, the bee ex
hibt of Mr. Albert Voeght, of the se- Pu
cond ward, showing a hive feeding on
the comb, was very unique and interest. BrI
rig. Ills sa:uiplles of honey were excel- Da
lsnt. Mr. Voeght also had an exhibit
of brooms which he made on his own
plantation, the straw being grown byv rc
himself. The broom is well made and
compares in quality with those turned Poi
out by any factory in the land. He iis
received special premiums for these ex
Beside the agricultural and horti
cultural exhibits, there were two beau- Lit
tiful floral exhibits, by Mrs. W. N. No
White and Mrs. J. W. Dunn. These
stood at the southern extremity of the (ills
Art Gallery and lent a special charm
to the whole scene. A number of
beautiful quilts, of the most artistic Titl
worLnianlship, were exhibited by the
ladies. Some of them were very old, das
but remarkably well preserved. At F
the northern end of the building the Na
ladies served dinner every day, and it '1'o:
its usless to pronounce upon its quali
ty, for the large crowds which lined Bil
the tables each day demonstrated the
old saying that the proof of the pud- see
ding is the eating of it. of
The Art Gallery was prettily decor- Ti
ated in the national colors. Long
streamers radiated from the center of I
the ceiling to the four corners. Over but
the door the words, " ry
WELCOME ALL TO OUR FAIR, J
made of red, white and brown Col
ears of corn, were suspended. This Da'
unique design was the work of Mr. 1
John L. Kennedy. The Art Gallery is awi
situated a short distance from the main
entrance to the grounds, a little to the for
right as you go in.
-iThe grand stand had been enlarged L
for the :ccasion, so that it was large a
n)lloUglh to acconmnlodate the crowds *t
that came in Thursday and Friday. and
The race track haid been put in excel- ,
lent condlition by Mr. Phil McGuire, pre
,tand i judge's stand was erected just
opposite the center of thte grand stand. F
'Th1' races were excellent, and passed B
off without any accidents.
In the matter of live stock and poul.
try, the exhibits were of the highest
grade. Mr. W. C, llope, of the second H
ward, had a fine display of chickens.
spec'ially of game chickens. Mr. L.

The weather clerk, while giving the
people a cld deal in the matter of mn
chilly weather, nevertheless allowed H

As advertised, the fair opened Thurs
lay morning, the 8th., with a stiff E
breeze blowiig from the north. Brooks'
brass hand, of Vicksburg, had been
playinug hlvely airs in town all during A
the motintg hours. About noon the
had mnarhebed down to the grounds,
followed by a great crowd of people,
a constant streamt of whom kept pour
tug in until 1 o'clock, when the fair
was formally opened by an address by
lion. Jos. E. Ranosdehl, who was intro
hlncd by Col. Jduo. A. Buckner. Mr.
Ransdlell's address was in keeping with I
the occasion, and although forced to t
talk anga;inst the stiff breeze, he made K
hiniself heard by the great crowd, who tato
gave hlurim a bearty applause when he to
tiishetld. It is hardly necessary to say j
that be delivered a line speech. Mis

was an exhibition of saddle stock. The

Shaphran Whipped and Made to
North Louisiana comes to the front
with another startling episode in the
way of a most exciting and thrilling
treatment of a gentleman who, up to
last Thursday, made his home at Duck
port. The news comes to Vicksburg
by Mr. Matt Bedford who told the nar
rative to the Dispatch this morning in
the following manner:
During the early part of last week W.
Shapbran of Duckport. who has for
some time run a store at that place,
was caught buying stolen cotton from
a negro named Strother Paise; says
Mr. Bedford. The negro was charged
with having stolen the wagon of seed
cotton from Mr. P. Utz. who resides in
the neighborhood of Duckport. The
buying was done in the night and
Shaphran was detected in the work by
Messrs. A. E. Kell, H. B. Bettis. and B.
H. Yerger. Mr. Bedford states that
Shaphran was then placed across a
barrel, tied there, and given one hund.
red lashes with a large leather strop.
The next day a committee of the fol
lowing representative citizens of the
parish decided to ask Mr. Shaphran to
vacate the neighborhood. The com
mittee was composed of the following
gentlemen. says Mr. Matt Bedford, T.
C. Bedford, F. L. Maxwell. N.. W.
Thomas. G. L. Boney. John Maxwell,
Henry Butler, A. E. Kell, S. B Bettis,
B. H. Yerger, E. D. Yerger, Matt PBed
ford. Major T. C. Bedford .vas- made
chairman of the committee and an
unanimous motion was put and carried
that Shaphran be advised to leave the
neighborhood. This was done; Shaph
ran departed Thursday evening on the
Annie Laurie for Cariola. Ark., his
former home. Mr. Bedford alleges
that Sbhphran had been engaged in
buying stolen eotton for some time but
the fret time he was caught he was
dealt with as told in the above.-Vicks
burg Dispatch, 18th.
This is the samep haphran who lived
la Buuch's Bend a few years ago and
prownto be a bat eiisa.
