A Wise Decision.
Cole Younger, a paroled con
vict of the state of Minnesota,
who has already served 26 years
in the penitentiary, has been
offered a position as captain on
the Minneapolis police force by
the mayor of that city. Younger
has declined on the ground that
his position entailed notoriety,
that his object was to lead a quiet
life, and that he did not want to
be placed in public gaze.

been postponed until the 12th of
December. Mr. Green, the act
ing president, in the absence of
President S. A. Knapp, says the
postponement is due to the fact l
that the association has been un- I
able to complete their business at
Buffalo in connection w'ith the i
Louisiana and Texas rice kitchen
and has also received no advice
from Charleston as to whether or
not they are desirous of having

There is not a man or woman'
in Jennings who is not in favor
I of waterworks. It is really silly(
to ask such a question. The!
only question at issue is, "Do we
want municipal or private own
ership?" and that is hardly a
question from the fact that an
overwhelming majority both in
number of voters and property
valuation favor municipal owner

A Good Circus.
The perforlinca gi \en by the
Great Eastern Shows yesterdav
afternoon and last night were
highly pleasing. A large audi
once was present, especially at
night when the tent wascrowded
to its full capacity. The people
were pleased with the different
features that are usually scen atl
a circus, and the whole perforiim
antce was even better than some
people expected. Thie clowns
were at their best, especially so
when the trio proceeded to play
ball. The joke brought forth by
then at that opplortune time
brought the crowd to a genuine
good hearty laugh- a regular rib
shaker. There was nothing of
an imumoral nature.
