Prepayment of Poll Tax Not Neces
On a par with the canard that it
costs $2 to register, whi-.h we explode
elsewhere, is the statement that it is
useless to register, as it will be ne
cessary to have prepaid one's poll
tax to vote at the coming April elec
There is absolutely no truth in
this proposition, and those who ad.
vance it do so either through sheer
ignorance or for some ulterior pur
pose. The poll tax question cuts no
figure whatever in the comining Ari'

have the right to vote in thalt elec,

Why register Again P
This question is often asked by
patrintic citizens who are impatient
at having to register anew.
Well, the best answer is, that the
law requires it as a prerequisite to
voting at the primary and April
There is no getting around it; one
must regi-ter to be able to vote.
Now, there are many re::sons why
the law maker has required it, the
.rst of which is that it was necessary
under the present state of the suf
frage to strike with nullity the old
registration rolls, with negrows on it,
and start afresh. Those who regis.
tered in 1898 unldem section 5 did so
to preserve their right of suffrage;
they must new register like others,
to exerctre that right Their regis.

It Costs Nothing To Registers
An inquirer writes us to know if it
he true that it costs every voter $2
to register. H,, informs us that a
rumor to that effect prevails in some
parts of the parish, and adds that
some people seem to believe it true.
It is evident that either the cam.
psaigu liar has commenced his work,
or some blooming idiot has beeu try
ing to joke.
These is absolutely no. foundation
for such a rumor, as it does not cost
the mi!lionth part of a red cent to

Our esteemed "Democraticeto the

crat, is still "supporting the ticket"
by abusing the convention, discredit- .
ing the candidates, denouncing the I
platform and assailing Governor
Foster. It seems to be specially
aggrieved because the convention
declared in favor of the improvement
of the mouth of the ,Mississippi, an
improvement which if carried into
effect by the Government will mean
much to the commerce of New Or
leans, and which the commercial
community there has been vainly r
clamoring for years. It seem- to be a
dissatislied because the convention
reaffirmed its allegiance to the Chica. I
go platform and there hasn't been a

* Farewell 1899!
t7 Welcome 1900!
Now that the old year has passed away, to
be with us in memory only, with its trials and tribula
tions, short crops and general cry of "hard times," etc.
let us be thankful we have been carried through it all
with so few scratches.
We welcome the new year with joy, and wish '
all our friends the compliments of the season, may
they all live to a ripe old age, and may health and
prosperity be lavished upon them.
When this modest little business was first launch
ed three years ago, the object was to make a small start
and allow it to build up on its merits, certain rules
were established, which were strictly adhered to, and
which was the secret of its present growth, there were
FIRST: To sell strictly for cash, for by so doing
there would be nothing lost on bad accounts, conse
quently a smaller margin of profits was required.
SECOND: To buy for cash, affording cash dis
counts on all purchases,getting the lowest market figure.
THIRD: To have "only one price," this means
0 that goods are marked in plain figures, and are always
marked down as low as possible.
FOURTH: Our motto "small profits and quick
sales," which explains itself. We much prefer to make
only one-half the profit and sell the quantity, than to
make double the profit and have the goods remain on
Our aim was to keep a real up-to-date store, car
rying a neat and always fresh stock of Gents' Furnish
ing Goods, Ladies Goods, Notions, Shoes and Hats,
and we are proud to say our labors have not been in
Our Fall and Winter stock is well assorted, and
open for your inspection. Remember we do not handle
"trash" nor "cheap goods," bear this well in mind.
41 We keep "good goods," and reliable goods, and sell
them at prices no others can match.
Beside our extremely low prices we are giving a
way a handsome Picture, (a pastel) with a beautiful

chase of $25.00. Ask for a gift ticket whenever you
