What the Farmers Say of King.
Editor Morehouse Clarion :
A® there has been a good deal
said about who will be our next
Congressman, I thought I would
givfc you my views on the subject,
or what the farmers think about it.
We had talked it over up here and
all are for king that I have heard
from. . 1
We think he is one of the best
workers in Congress and this is no
time for changing men. If you
have a good work horse you ought
not to trade him off when the grass
is growing. This District is not a
certain one and King is the best
worker in a campaign I ever saw.
I have seen many an election in my
day and there is no man living that
can get over more ground than
King. It would be a sad blow for
us to lose this Disirict at this time.
There are and always will be
soreheads and chronic grumblers
and croakers in all parties, and al
ways wanting things changed to
suit them, or to get in some friend
or relative. There are men in this
parish as competent as any in the
District, and warm personal friends
of mine, but I would support King
in preference to them, as he has
been tried and not found wanting.
I do hope the people will not sleep
on their oars and let the thing go
by default. Let us all stop work
when the ward meetings are called
and give King a solid shot from
this parish for I think it can be said
of him, "Well done good and faith
ful servant." I think it our duty
to send him back to Congress, as
he is now versed in the workings of
Congress and no man has done
more for — T "
With this experience there will be
none to excel him in the future.
I see in your paper that there are
some of the pretty sharp ones that
are opposed to King, but when we
farmers get our necks bowed and
the people speak en masse, these
little parlor rules wont win.
I am glad you have taken the
stand you have and fought so nobly
for King. It shows you appreciate
his worth and ability. Some few
say King is not much of a speaker
If you was in the army, you know
the fellow that "blowed" the bugle
was never in the fight. That's
what's the matter now—too much
gas. If all the gas could be bot
tled up that has been let off in
Congross for the last ten years,
there would be no use for Edison's
electric light.
King is a farmer and he knows
our wants. Let us send him back.
Farmer.
WHVT WE NEED.
Hoe handles each 25 cents.
Clivices each 25 cents.
Lap rings 10 cents.
Very best Sweeps $5 50.
"Sweep blades 75 cents.
Plow points 25 to 85 cents.
Boys' iron axle wagons, with'ca
pacity 100 to 200 lbs. $5 to $7 50.

HANI)Y'S, without going any
further, and at prices that compete
with many larges places than Bas
trop. Call on him and he will
prove it to you.
A party of sportsmen went out
last week on a fishing expedition,
taking with them all of the luxuries
that are known to modern civiliza
tion, and, from what we learn, they
had a hog-killing, fish-killing and
BEER -killing time.
If you want groceries at New
Orleans prices with freight added,
go around to Leopold's.
The Chicago Convention met in
that city last Wednesday. When
we hear from it we expect to hear
of Grant's nomination. The next
best news we shall wait for is either
Thurman's or Bayard's nomination
at Cincinnati ; then the most glo
rious news that we have ever re
ceived will be the triumph, in No
vember, of the Democratic party
over the party that is drifting into
imperialism and despotism. We
sincerely and honestly hope that
the third-termers have won the vic
tory in the "Lake City." If so,
the least discretion upon the part of
the delegates that will assemble in
the "Queen City" on the 22d inst.,
will place this nation again in the
hands of the people.
The following named gentlemen

We learn that the gin house be
longing to Mr. J. P. Daily, of Oak
Ridge, was burned to the ground
last Sunday morning. The fire is
thoaght to have originated from the
pipes of a gang of negroes who were
gambling in the house on Saturday
night.
I Have for Sale at a Bargafa
2 young mules, over 15 hands high.
6 open and 6 top buggies.
2 two-horse double-seat buggies.
1 one-horse wagon and 5 two-horse
wagons under iSew onc»uo
J. S. Handy.
Our young friend and neighbor,
Sam Handy, looks lonely. Won
der if some of the fair maids of this
town couldn't persuade him to com
mit matrimony ? This is leap year,
you know, girls.
Mr. McKee, who attended the
District Conference at Trenton,
says that Bishop Keener was on
hand and preached three eloquent
sermons. Mr. M. says he had a
delightful time among the good
people of Trenton.
"For Ladies Only."
Just received—another supply of
pretty underwear, ready-made cali
co wrappers, dresses and ulsters at
tf. Schuster & Silbernagel's.
Mr. T. G. Brigham, who is farm
ing extensively in Gum Swamp, is
perfectly elated over the prospect
he has for a big crop. He says his
entire crop is just as fine as it can
be. In fact, everybody in the
Swamp has magnificent prospects
for a bountiful crop.
Nice clear rice and sugar at 10
cents per pound.
Genuine Cordova coffee,
Fine assortment of nuts, candies,
sardines, canned goods, pickles,
etc., at Leopold's.
JUST RECEIVED.
A large lot Java, Cordova and
Rio Coffae, Yellow Clarified Sugar,
Genuine Sugar House Molases,
Plant's Extra Flour, which I will
sell very low for cash.
J. T. DALTON.
The Farmerville Gazette and
Monroe Bulletin are the only Rich
ardson papers in the District. Each
is doing all in its power to create a
boom, but up to date has signally
failed.
Mr. James Campbell accompa
nied Father Eneau to Monroe last
Monday.
The question discussed by the
Bastrop Literary Society last Tues
day evening was this: "Was Aaron
Burr a traitor ?' ' A good deal was
said both for and against Mr. Burr,
but, according to President Weaks,
the negative sustained their posi
tion, and he decided that Aaron
was not a mean man—a traitor.
In this connection we shall state
that tne Society purpose giving, on
the 6th of July, a pic-nio at the
College, where a poem will be read
by the learned Buatt and an ora
tion will be delivered by Mr. A. R.
Macey. At night of the same day
there will be a public debate at the
Court House, to which everybody
and a few others are invited.
We are glad to note the flourish
ing condition of this Society. Much
good is bound to result from it.
Those who take an interest in the
exercises and who make an effort
to learn, are improving rapidly.
When such men as Dr. Buatt, and
others that we might mention, take
an interest in the organization, no
one will be surprised at its success.
The Bastrop Literary Society is an
established body.
We had the pride and pleasure
the other day of inspecting the
books of Messrs. T. O. Leavel &
Co., whose book-keeper is Mr. Har
ry Newhall. For beauty, neatness,
accuracy and legibility, we do not
think we have ever seen any books
that will surpass those kept by Mr.
Newhall. We congratulate the firm
upon having secured the services of
such a tasty and efficient penman
at their desk.
IT SINGS IröB ALL.
M^oars. Macy & Jones have fitted
up a Singer Sewing Machine Depot
in the Parsons office, and are pre
pared to furnish machines to the
citizens of Bastrop and Morehouse
parish Call and see them.
If it were not for violating the
town ordinance which prohibits the
firing of^a gun within the corpora
tion,we should be compelled one of
these days to lodge a bullet in the
ear of one of the fiendish bores that
is forever disturbing and stealing
our exchanges. Our desire to obey
the law is all that prevents us from
burning powder.
Before the Clarion is issued
again, the voters of this town will
have elected a Mayor and Council
men for another year. The present
incumbents have, so far as we
know, made very satisfactory offi
cers, and we guess they will be re
elected.
A Handsome Present
For Boys. Much safer and far
more convenient. Shoots four times
as fast as a muzzle-loader—brings
down many more squirrels. All
parents should buy one for their
boys. We mean Handy's breech
loaders. He has them from $12 50
to $60.
There are fleas enough in this
town to furnish the whole parish.
If any of our country friends want
fleas they can get them by applying
to any party in town. "They can
be had by the mere asking."
Remember, that Leopold has fa
cilities, unsurpassed by any house
in North Louisiana, for selling
cheap goods.
Dr. Ellis, of Oak Ridge, was in
town last Monday. He is a genial,
pleasant gentleman, whose company
we enjoy very much.
What Bastrop has needed ever
since the war—a first-.class grocery
house, such as has just been open
ed by August Leopold.
Wednesday was cool and cloudy.
