DRAIN THE BLACK
When we read in the daily press
of the movement started in other
sections of this great Delta to drain
our swamp lands we believe our
planters, who own the lands in the
Clack Bayou district, are making a
mistake by not organizing themselv?s
into a drainage district and starting ; personal and realty tax
this work at once. The small cost mised reduction in our insurance has
per acre to drain these lands as cs- j failed to materialize and the city
timated by the Government is not a I council at its next meeting and the
drop in the bucket compared with j city's new Business League should
the increase in values for the owners j take this matter up and see if a re
duction can't be secured.
It is a sure thing that unless .he
city asks for a reduction they will
never get it and we have stood it
long enough now. We have paid in
to the insurance companies' coffers
more of our hard coin than we should
these lands will go to when drained,
besides the millions of dollars that
will conic from the fine timber now
on it. and, further, the new businecs
it will give our cites and towns.

enjoyed cm Thursday evening by a
large attendance, composed of rela-.

exceedingly well arranged program
was rendered without a single mis
hap, and as a whole, speaks well to

choice of the selections , rendered
were sufficiently varied to relieve the
monotony - which ordinarily accom
panies such exhibitions.

any consequence was the fight made

victory over his opponents who fav

Washington county's sentiment on
the future gambling question, and

The Government received $500,000
revenue from the tax on playing
cards this year. The sale up to June
1st amounted to 25,000,000 packs. The
large demand is said to be due to the
growing passion for bridge whist. At
this rate one man figured out that in
a few years the income from th"s
alone will build the Panama Canal.
The re-election of Mr. J: L. He
bron to the state senate is a source
of gratification . to his many' friends
not only in- .the county but in the
tate. Mr. Hebron, as his record

Till. Tim-s object in putting on
its Jamestown contest for the work
ing girls of the county was mostly
to give three of these young ladies
an outing that their financial circum
stances would not allow but their
health demanded. If it was in our
power we would give every contes
tant a trip, but this is impossible.
There was also another object we
had in putting on this contest, that
at the present means more than mon
ey to us, and that was placing The
Times in nearly every Jiome in the
city and as many in this and adjoin
ing counties as possible. In other
words the building up of our circula
tion so that we can have a circulation
equal to any paper in the state, and
for this reason get better rates foi
our advertising, which as a result
guarantees to you a better paper and
to us dollars in the future.'
So, beginning Monday we have de
cided to make each coupon five
votes, the votes for ' advertising and
job work to remain the same, but the
number of votes for a paid in advance
subscription for one year we will
increase to 400, for six months 200,
for old subscriptions 300, for six
months 150, less time in proportion.
