"FACTS THAT TALK."
Under the above caption The
Comrade, in its last issue, goes
off on another of its wild goose
chases and pretends to think it
has discovered a "mare's nest."
Any body would know that The
Comrade is better informed than
to make a blunder like that if it
desired to give the facts as they
occur. If The Comrade had
desired to be fair in the matter
it would have credited the article
which it reprinted to IHarlequin.
that Democratic(?) weekly in
The article points out that the
Kellogg legislature back in the
dark days of '76 only succeded in
filching from the people of this
state $1,564,340.40, while the
last Democratic legislature spent
$3,421.511.27, or $292,830.47
more than Kellogg and his
negroes. If the Comrade had
desired to tell the truth, or relate
"facts that talk," it could have
shown that Kellogg's adminis
tration used the money filched
from the people in rioutous
living. It kept up no magnifi
cicnt vee system which enables
the cultivation of thousands of
acres of the finest land in the
w orhl which produces hundreds
of tl:ousands of dollars annually.
It established none of the mag
nlificient institutions of learning
which were established and are
being maintained by the Demo
cratic adminnistration. It kept
up none of the institutions of
chairity which were established
and are being kept up by A Demt

ministration did not do: there
many things a Democratic ad
ministration has clone for the
public good, and the record of
the present Democratic adminis

crat is ashamed. The levees,

chairitable institutions explain
mo: t eloquently the difference in
the expenditures of Kellogg's
plunderers and the Democratic

PROBABLY A MISTAKE.
In last week's Baton Rouge
Advocate we find that Winn par
ish is reported to have applied to
the Secretary of State for blanks
to be used in holding a primary
election. The primary election
law provides that the Secretary of
State shall furnish blanks for
such elections and in naming the
parishes which have applied for
blanks the Advocate designates
Winn as one among the number.
There must be a mistake some
where. No action has been taken
in regard to the matter so far and
the parish has no need for blanks
until it is decided that the
primary method of nomination
will be adopted.

We have received the new cat

and beautifully illustrated, and
its contents show many improve

from all sections of Louisiana
but from eight other states and
seven foreign countries, thus
producing a cosmopolitan atmos
phere that tends to enlarge the
outlook and broaden the mind of
The courses of study, as an
nounced for the coming session,
have been carefully revised so as
to bring more in keeping with the
specializing tendencies of the
age, and two new courses have
been added-an Electrical Engin
eering course and a short course
in Age iculture.
The Hill Memorial Library,
the Mlec(hanical Workshop, and
the new Labratory for Physics,
Electricity. and Civil Engineer
ing have been completed; and the
University will have its own
electric plant in operation at the
beginning of next session. These
improvements will add greatly to
the thoroughness and fullness of
the instruction along literary as
well as scientific lines.
In short. if the Louisiana State
University is making as rapid
progress as this handsome cata
logue would indicate, it is surely
keeping abre ast of the times, and
is well worthy of the support and
patlonage of our people.
THE FIRST INSTALLMENT.
The "official journal" gave its
an installment of the police jury
proceedings last week ard pro
mised to give us more of it as
soon as it is furnished with copy.
The Times is up to date furnishing
its readers with this important
information just two months
after the police jury met. If any
one should get in a hurry about
seeing the complete proceedings
they would save time, probably.
by coming to Winnfield and
examining the records.
It is said the Dodson Times is
preparing to move to Winnfield.
