"Forbearanoehas ceased to be a vir
tue" with almost every one, and the
blamed weather is the cause. Rain, rain,
raial %h will do the swearing ? We're
too full for utterance.
J. R. Flores, a Mexican in the employ
of two Texas drovers, was shot Tuesday
night on the Perkin's plantation, near
this place. Circumstances combined to
point out Jake Shields as theguilty par
ty, add he was arrested and confined in
jail. We have been unable to learn the
Michael Chambers, the amiable Sta
tioner, Bookseller and 'News Dealer,
n'er tires in doing favors to the news
paper men. We are indebted to him for
many copies of interesting papers. To
the general public he is very much the
same, and we know of no one more de.
serving of patronage.
We had alntost determined not to
speak about the weather, whose normal
tpte has, been generally bad and fre
qgiehtly Worse, for nearly ninety coneec
tive days. It was worse on Tuesday and
at the present writing it isn't quite so
b a The planters, however, have man
aged to pull through with crops very
much below their expectations.
Mr. T. Sambola Jones, ofthe Advocate,
is on a fly to East Feliciana, and Messrs.
H. Skolfleld, John D. Fisher and Capt.
JMYf~ l kd, ie on a bgsinesi venre in
Crescent City. Jones will be under the
moral influence of parents, while the
others will find protection in the good
example of Brother Skolfield. So the
public need have no apprehnsions con
c rning disasters or anything of that
Mr. R. H. Burke, the contractor of
the woodwork on the State Holm: has
completed the job, which is pronutlneed
by all ,cpptalesaenu to be, Ardt'class in
point of the stamibhness of the timber
and solidity of adjustment. The 'brick
work on the building would be nearly
finished ere this, had not the weather
retarded the Workmen who, for days
and days, were unable to proceed.
A HIoltlBIm MctnI ,un-Statigties show
that every moment a mortal dies. Most
of these deaths are nothing more than a
horrible murder, perpetrated by some
doctor witi his professional "poison."
To be safe, to live long and enjoy health

Dr. Plagg's agents are at the Verandah
Hotel, where free consultation is given
and Pads ar9 kept for sale.
In another column will be found the
ldvettisementofDr. D. L. McKitriokan
oldreside~t dental surgeon of this city,
who aftoeseveral years absence, returns
to renew his husiness relations with our
people. He is a very skillful dentist, as
hundreds who have tested his workman
ship, will attest; therefore it is useless for
tus to say more than that he is again lo
cated among aus, ready to execute fuine
work for old and new patrous.
Tramps are again on the rampage in
this city; that is, if we are to judge
from the many complaints made by omw
people. It is a pfty we hav'n't a chain
gang for their benefit, or a law some
thing like the one now in force in Mis
sissippi. In its absence, however, the
police shoul4 be on the watch for them,
as they do not hesitate to insult de
fenceless women and children; and we
hereby call attention to the fact that
they are around in goodly numbenrs.
Another good old man-Mr. M. Gilday
-passed away to his final resting place,
yesterday evening. lie was an ex-Fed
eral soldier, and though poor and a Gov
ernmeut pensioner, willloug be remem
/ bored bly many people of this city, as a
man of the strictest intt'grity and a
faithful friend. In sacred compliance
with the pledges of his life, so often re
l)eated to friends, "'He died sober," and
splnt his last breath in the peaceful con
sciousness of having dtone his duty.
AN I.ramlMs SNAKE-A snake twice
as long as a telegraph polo and twice as
thick is said to Ie sliding around in the
mountains of Pennsylvania, and people
in that section are afraid to go home.
Yet these people swallow snakes injust
as readlily in the doses they take from
their dloctors' hands. Flagg's Liver and
S~iomachl Pad kills these snakes and
cLures the patient. Dr. Flagg's agents
are at the Verandah Hotel, where free
cousultation is given and the Pads are
kept for sale.
A BANxi.o HoIseE--Of all things that
Baton Rouge needs, a good Bank stands
at the top of the list. There is no point
du Louisiana, New Orleans not excepted,
where .ich an enterprise would prove
more reoumerative. When the State
Government is removed here, the dopee
itsof the Treasurer and other otlicialsa
will, as of yore, be made here. T'here
are two handsome bank buildings in
our city, especially constructed for the
purpose, and supplied with stronug,
vaulted counters, etc., which could
either be purchased or rented at a low
figure just at present. Baton Rouge is
the inland city of'tl~e future in this
state. Enterprising' men will soon

Keachi Female College has suffered
another sad blow. Professor Manley a
few mgnths since committed suicide, l

His successor, Professor Rundells, was ' d

Shreveport Times : Wednesday even- I
ing Geo. Cook and John Lawler were
arrested for disturbing the peace and
confined in the city lockup. While in
prison Lawler assaulted Cook, knocking
him down and beating him m the most
brutal manner, kicking him in the face
and on the head with his boot. Yester
day Cook went before Justice Carter
and made affidavit against Lawler,
charging him with assault and battery.
Lawler was arrested, and not being able
to furnish bail to the amount of $150,
he was committed to jail.
Monday night between 8 and 9 o'clock,
a 'colored girl named Mary Johnson,
while 'Walking with a male companion
on Commerce street, near Jones' saw
mill, was assaulted by a colored female
dressed in male attire, who struck her
over the head with a bottle of water,
cutting a deep gash. The man who
was walking with Mary knows the
name of the girl who struck the blow,
but ie refuses to give her away. Jeal
ousy was the cause.
Certainly the contractors on the New
Orleans Pacific road have had' a hard
time of it. The weather has been so
miserably bad that it was impossible
for them to make nmuch progress, espect
ally in grading. Nor has it been more
favorable for tying. No doubt the
company will make due allowance for
A daring attempt was mare to rob
the store of Mr. Abe Dreyfuis on the
levee Saturday night, and the attempt
was only frustrated by the boldness of
the rascals themselves. A dry goods
box was pluaced in the doorway and on
this one of ti thieves tood,uad reach
ing alove the points of the iron rdds in
the igor b,roke a large pane of glass so
as t unabhle him to get hold of 4the
spring latch and thus open the doors
from the out side, but in breaking the
glass the rock slipped from the hand of
the operator and fell to the floor making
a terrible crash, at which they took
fright and ran away. Officer Charles
Dewing, hearing the noise, went as
rapidly as possible, but arrived too late
to discover who the parties were. Mr.
Dreyfuss was notified and he and Mr.
Dewing set about nailing pieces of
plank over the broken glass, and while
engaged in nailing on a plank a large
piece of glass fell from the upper side of
the door, striking Mr. Dreyfuss on the
third finger of the left rand, cutting off
a large piece of the flesh.

e 'A FINE HorsL.-Though the seat of
government has not yet been duly in
stalled at Baton Rouge, yet the transient
people who have been passing through
our city, have been sufficiently numer

boarding houees. What will it be when
we have railroads and the State officers?
Can any one doubt that a number one
hotel would pay, that would have a fine

and visiters would find it convenient to
