"About two years ago, after suffering
for nearly two years from rheumatic
gout, being able to walk only with great
discomfort, and having tried various
remedies, includinig mineral "waters,
without relief, I saw by an advertise

been relieved of this distressing com
plaint, after long suffering, by taking
Ayer's Sarsaparilla. I then decided to
make a trial of this medicine, and took
it regularly for eight months, and am
pleased to state that it has effected a
complete cure. I have since had no rb.

s THE RIVER AND THE THREATENED
Since our last issue the news which
comes from the overflowed sections he
low us is anything but encouraging.
Ie f all reports be true, and we have ev
v ery reason to believe they are, the
people in the inundated sections have
1 suffered terribly. Their crops and
o homes have been submerged-the for
mer totally destroyed and the latter
, unfit or too dangerous for occupancy.
t Aid, in every conceivable way, has
, been rendered-the Louisiana Lottery
I Company coming forward in the lead
s and rendering timely and valuable
o assistance, which, to say the least, is
highly commendable. This corpora
tion is willingly and cheerfully spend
,f ing thousands of dollars daily, having
e boats at the beck and call of the suf
fering, and bringing tools and work
men to stop breaks and crevasses and
strengthen the levees in weak places.
The scene where the greatest dam
n age has been done, and where people
have suffered and lost their all is, in
s deed anything but a pleasant one to
And now cones, in the past few
days the news from the upper river,
e from Fulton, Ark., to below Shreve
port, which says that all in that terri
tory must surely be submerged. Rail
road tracks are being washed away,
horses, mules, etc., are drowning on
all sides, whilst human beings have to
e seek shelter on the tops of their houses.
f The river is higher than at any
o known period, and is still rising-and
the rains, as our readers are aware, are
r still pouring down upon us. The
e news is that it is raining all the way
down. With the present stage of wa
ter at Alexandria we hardly see how
we can avert an overflow. Our levees
can be strengthened, 'tis true, but are
we prepared to receive and stand the
Jsise which the knowing say we must
receive as our share, and which is sure
s We are not writing these lines to
i alarm any one-our object being to
d put every person on their guard, so in
case the overflow does come they can
' e prepared at their homes and have
- things correspondingly in readiness.
The rise here for the 24 hours end
, ing Monday morning at 8 o'ciock, as
reported by Mr. Graham, the Govern
ment Observer here, was 6.J inches.
From 8 o'clock Monday morning until
" 8 o'clock yesterday morning the rise
a was 6 inches. The gauge reading
yesterday morning was 31.10, which is
1 foot 8 inches lower than the highest
point reached this year.
On Saturday afternoon and Sunday
night we had heavy rains.
To give an idea of the damage done
to the crops we have only to publish
the following from the weather crop
bulletin of the Louisiana Weather Ser
'vice, issued May 3d:
Reports from Plaquemine state that
backwater from Morganza still coming
up in the rear of the plantations, but
in St. John Parish the backwater has
fallen considerably, allowing planters
to devote their attention to the crops,
which are most in need of cultivation.
The Bayou district, or back settle
ment of Assumption Parish, is under
water, and a prospective fine corn crop
in that vicinity is ruined; the backwa
ter is encroaching on the front planta
tions very fast, and in n few places
striking the back protection levees.
-The members of the Louisiana
Legislatnre, both House and Senate,

apparently, a long and steady session
before them, when they will have a
chance (we mean the Senators and
Representatives) to air their eloquence
and give the country the benefit of
their massive brains. Of the different
nuhjects to come before them for set
tlement none will be as important as
the Louisiana Lottery, which compa
ny will ask for a renewal of its char
ter. The Lottery Company are ask
ing that the subject be tlnown back
to the people-which ought to be
done. Verily, the matter will be in
teresting, and to wttness and hear the
whys and wherefores advanced, will
be something uncommon. Other im
