VOL. XX. WINNFIELD, LOUISIANA, FRIDAY, AUGUST 19, 1910. NUMBER
Let in the Sunlight.
Suppose you knew a man who kept
his shades drawn tight all day and,]
burnel ke'rosene instead of letting in n
the sunlight;
Suppose you knew a man toiling
along a dusty road who would not i
accept a lift-when there was plenty
of room in the wagon;
Suppose you knew a miller-With
his mill built beside a swift-running ]
stream-who insisted on turning the
machinery by hand.
All foolish, you say?, And yet look 1
around you-how few retqilers take F
advantage of the great advertising
campaigns run by food, textile, cloth
add every other manufacturing line
that you can name! /
Think a moment! What was the (
last advertisement you read and I
wondered just which store in town i
would be progressive enough to have r
the goods in stock so you could see f
them-and purchase?
More goods are sold under the even
ing lamp at home than you dream of.
Practically every live retailer adver
tises in his local paper. But how? v
Put up your lightning rod! Let v
your customers know that you can e
deliver to them the goods which great a
advertising, paid for by manufac- a
turers has interested them in. a
They will get the habit-and you h
will get the business. tl
Practically every manufacturer
stands ready to help you help your
self. Ask them for electrotypes suit.
. able to run in your advertising. of
Hook your trademark to your store. si
Consumers' demand for advertised pl
goods is now divided broadcast among ai
all the stores in town. J,
Use your advertising in local papers ra
to focus this demand upon your store. w
'And don't forget to send for those Si
_helpful electrotypes.
Read this again for it means money
to you.-Ruston Leader.
Don't Like Dixie.
Senator W. B. Heyburn, of Idaho,
dislikes "Dixie." ci
He created a sensation at a recept- pl
ion given to Congressman T. R. Ham
erat Wallace, Idaho, by stopping the
orchestra while the musicians were
playing the popular strains. Colonel br
Hammer had just finished his address in
and the orchestra had started a med
ley of well-known airs. y
About the sixth number in the i
medley was "Dixie," The senator
leaped to his feet, strode across to the
musicians and cried out:
"This is a Republican meeting. We m,
want no such tunes here."
The amazed musicians stopped W
immediately.;: The senator strode ri
back to his seat. Aftet a moment of pm
silence .Mayor Hanson arose and en
closed the meeting. bt
Today the north bound passenger fri
train on'the Rook Island road had in
attached to it a special car which had lo'
streamers hanging from each side of
it announcing that it was the ear of
the Hang Investment Company. The ye
streamers also announced that Louis wl
iana is the richest ahd best state to Oc
:live in the union.-Ruston LTader. o

Another Burglary.
This city was again visited by a
gang of thieves at about 1:30 o'clock 1n
Tuesday night when the stores of S. n
J. Harper, Peoples' Hardware & Fur- fi
niture Co., and O'Quin & Gibson Dry n
Goods Company were broken into. s
Entrance into Harper's store was t,
effected through a large transom on t1
the second floor and only $1.25 was d
taken from the cash drawer. Mr. ti
Harper could not ascertain as to what u
goods were stolen. fl
The Peoples' Hardware & Furniture
Company's store was entered by e
breaking open the back door. On c
investigation four flie pistols were ft
found missing and $1 in loose change e
from the cash drawer, but the pro- y
prietors do not know of anything else fi
being taken. t]
The thief entered the store of O'Quin ti
& Gibson by removing the skylight it
and jumping down about fifteen. feet p,
on some dry goods on a table. In this p:
store the thief consumed considerable t1
time in selecting certain articles to tl
suit himself, as indicated by almost h
everything in the store being upset. n:
About $50 worth of dry goods had T
been selected and arranged to be fr
taken away when he was discovered jc
by some boys, who gave the alarm. 1t
At this moment the robber made a
bold dash through the front door. In sI
his flight he was fired at three times w
by Turner Machen, a restaurant el
keeper, but it is.not known whether
he was hit or not. Only 51.50 in l
money was taken from the cash M
drawer. .
The L. & A. depot was also entered K
about the same hour, by breaking the A
sash and turning the fastener. The Li
cash drawer was broken open, but as A
it contained no money, the thief got Cl
nothing.
This is the second robbery to occur
in Winnfield within three weeks, the
first stores being robbed were W. A. w
Mashaw, the jeweler, who lost $40 in UE
cash, and S. J. Harper, who returned a
in time to prevent anything being cc
taken away. His store was again na
broken into Tuesday night. ea
It is believed that this second rob- ar
bery was perpetrated by the same
gang who operated here three weeks as
ago. The police,depwrtment is mak- ac
ing every effort to apprehend the thief se
or thieves and hopes to capture them th
before long. se

At Camp Meeting.
a A merry crowd left here last Sunday
ok Morning, bound for Hudson to enjoy
S. not only a long ride through the pine
Ir- forest of Winn but to attend camp
ry meeting. The crowd consisting of
some of the young people of the town
as took their dinner with them which
)n they certainly enjoyed, indeed some
as declared that "so abundant had been
[r. the chicken and so jolly the crowd
at until they could hardly keep from
flying."
re While they were prevented from
)y enjoying the morning service, be
)n cause of the length of the drive, they
re found the afternoon hour very inter
;e esting and instructive. Then too the
o- young people found a congenial crowd
se from Dodson who joined forces with
them in an exploring expedition over
in the Hudson school campus and build
it ings. So interested were the youing
et people in the surroundings and so
is pleasantly was the time passing until
le they, forgetful of the hour, found
to that they had stayed longer than :
st had been their intention. Therefbre,,,:"
t. night overtook them on their return.
Id This, however, did not prevent them
)o from enjoying their homeward
id journey since the moonlight flooded
a. the woods.
a May it again be our pleasure to:i
:n spend a day with these young people K
3s who leave nothing unturned in their:
it efforts to make all spend a happy day.

n name is not at all deceptive. The

" and larger than a man's, arm. Theui
e grains were more than twice as Iigei
as the ordinary corn. He has half an
acre in this corn and is selling .it fori
