"The wagon that stands up like
the reputation of its makers"
When you buy a Studebaker wagon you buy
a wagon that will last until you turn the farm
over to your son and he turns it over to his son.
One of the first Studebaert wagons ever made saw
constant service for thirty years, and we will gladly
send you the names of farmers who have in their
possession wagons that have been in constant use any
where from 17 to 48 years-and there are thousands of
them. We are building the same kind of wagons today.
A Studebater wagon is an investment that will give
you full return for your outlay. It is built on honor.
Iron, steel, wood, paint and varnish used in it construd
tion are tested and retested to make sure each is the best.

CHEAP NOTORIESY vs MOTHER LOVE
Written by request of many Mothers of Ruston
Two things that the inhabiti
tantsof this mundane sphere are
in pursuit of are cheap pleasares
and cheap notoriety. It is the
opinion of many that Lawyer
Dale of Mississippi has exceeded
in the race, and should be award
ed the prize, even if it should be
"the head of his esteemed client
in a charger." He has proven
bey'nd a doubt that there
"breathes a man with soul so
dead" he would sell, barter or
exchange the holiest, purest
thing on earth, mother love, in
order to obtain notriety; since he
declares there is "no money in
it," and "Brutus is an honorable
man," he could have no other
motive. The "grandstand play"
enacted by him and Gov. Brewer
in the name of justice (?) is
brewing a storm of public senti
ment that men burst with cy
clonic fury that will teach
these gentlemen that the sort of
notoriety they seek is not so
cheap, after all.
The governor of Mississippi
has changed his requirements as
often as Laban changed Jacob's
wages, and the end is not yet.
No parent, worthy the name,
would have consented to be sep
erated froma, lost child till sub
borned witnesses, gathered by
scrupulous - lawyers,, could be
gathered together for the im
possibile purpose of proving to a
refined, honorable mother that
her child is not her own, and if
the impossible task could be
accomplished, the undertaker
would brand himself a modern
I knew a Sol. Bilbo, who lived
in Pearl River swamp and was
convicted of a nameless crime
against his own daughters, who
were taken from him by law.
Perhaps he was also a relative
of these "star witnesses,"
whose blind testimony is worth
more in Mississippi than the
opinions of all Louisiana sons
and daughters combined.
Woman's intuition revealed to
me long before Mr. Dunbar ad
vanced the knowledge that there
were two men and an exchange
of children. If Walters was at
Poplarville in July with a child
no doubt it was Bruce Anderson,
and it is not at all strange that
unsuspecting, ignorant country
people should be honestly mis
taken in thinking it was the
same child returned a few
months later, but that smart
lawyers and a governor or two
should be mystified by the wily
tricks of such a villan, is almost
beyond belief. This course, if
pursued is*more liable to invite
mob violence than extradition
would be. The fact that Mr.
Dunbar was willing to entertain
or hear a proposition to have Bob
bie appearopn the stage is not the
unpardonable sin, when we re
member that Mr. Dunbar has
been forced to spend more
money than most people have to
spend, and is still spending
money unnecessarily because of
those who would pardon the
"poor old man." It is not a
thing incredible that you or I
might be tempted in like manner
were we placed in the same sit
uation. That the Dunbars kept
accusation to repeat.
I feel sure I voice the senti
ment of mothers of Louisiana
when I say: "We tender to Mr.
and Mrs. Dunbar our heart-felt
sympathy in this sad hour when
their cup of sorrow has been
drained to the dregs; that we
condem with righteous indigna
tion the stand taken by Governor
Brewer, Dale, Rawls & Co.,
voiced in the Daily States, which
does not represent the sentiment
of a majority of people in any
state, but instead a small minor
ity; that we commend the noble,
helpful stand taken by Mr. John
M. Parker and the New Orleans
Item, which, for the present at
least, does voice the sentiment
of Louisiana's noble sons and
May the God who holds the
destiny of nations as well as in
dividuals in His hands, thwart
every plan to rob Mr. and Mrs.
Dunbar of their beloved, child
and free a dangerous criminal.

vertisement in about FIVE papers of ordinary cireulatio
to get the results you can get by placing it in the St. Lan

Do you know that even that would scarcely give you ~
the returns of ONE advertisement in the Clarion, because,
the fact that a paper has such a large circulation carries
.-. with it the indisputable evidence that it is a GOOD paper,
.and the people want to read it?
ý- Do you know that the Clarion has added to its already
large circulation, that of the St. Landry Commoner?
Sr--- Do you know that no weekly paper in the State can

its advertising rates?
