We are sorry to hear of the se illness of thq wife of Mr. Ben Hawes, of the third ward. She is ®hicken with swamp fever and very hopes are entertained of her l *»overy. Last Sunday was one of those wet days that remind us of the time; of Noah. dawu MÜ1 high rain fell, and ditcu, ana pressed into Jr vom noon waters could uot.gef as they f.;ii. 7i m as a rain—it v as à • was a rain Ihit picked the peep of torrents of sewer. and town were -il 1! ie ...j a> fast •.T'-h-moring r. ra il.

It was a r n that beat the uu: I mo ••. the earth and liileù i.i Jyes and nose and month full of slop, ana slime, and filth, and left him to bewail the calamity that befell him "forever and forever." If one half the water that fell in Bastrop last Sunday had been sprinkled over this parish last July, there would not be such an army of woe begone merchants and planters in Morehouse now. But the water didn't fall then and we do not pro pose to dwell now on what might have been. We take rain now whenever it comes, provided there's no shelter near by. That's what we do ! No trouble to show goods at Oehlber & Goldman's. Provisions of all kinds are de clining in prices. Cotton bounded up a quarter of a cent or more this week. It is the opinion of retail dealers now that the late high prices of provisions were forced by Chicago "corner" men, who pur chased and locked up all of the graiu and meat they could obtain and then sprang the prices. As soon as they unlocked their im mense depots prices fell to their natural values, which are always graded according to the laws of supply and deman.l. It may be that our provision bills will not be so great for the next ten months as we feared, and the scuffle for an other year's subsistence maj' not be euch a bug-beai as we had a right to expect a few days ago. We earnestly hope not. Latest st3 T les of dress gg Oehlber There mQjûMÉHHjHHj^HHIRnuer n very sick nox is also con er room with that painful lease. Mr. Leon Sugar is slowly recovering from his protracted at tack of pneumonia. People should be very cautious now with their health. They have passed through a remarkable summer, both in its duration and its intense heat, and there has been very little sick ness. The change bas come and people's systems are enervated, They are not prepared to make a vigorous contest with disease. Therefore shun exposure and save your health. Clothing ! Clothing ! Messrs. Oehlber & Goldman have just received a complete assortment of fall and winter clothing. Every body can be suited, both in quality and price. Call and examine their goods. The surveyors of the contempla ted railroad were in town Tuesday night, and passed on Wednesday morning. The line of their survey runs parallel with the public square about 25^^^ÉHÉ&t of the Court e by no means n of the road, are now south the direction of oe. If a railroad is ever built or through Bastrop, her people are nearer the day of its completion and We than they ever were before that's all we know about it. think and hope, however, that within the next two years out town will be linked by rail to the great marts of the commercial world, and then Bastrop will be what it should be—one of the livest and most pleasant towns in Louisiana. We notice in the W est Carroll Watchman that our young friend, Sam Baird, has embarked in the law business at Floyd. Athough Sam is not yet a licensed practi tioner—not Deing old enough to ob tain license—we are banking on him as a "legal adviser" and ex pect to hear of him one of these days as a leading lawyer at the Floyd bar. Oue thing we do know and that is the sincerity of our heart when we wish Mr. Baird un bounded success. Naw goods and low prices at Oehlber & Goldman's. Mr. Harry Gray, Deputy U. S. Marshall, went up to Monticello last week after John Farmer, a col ored man, who is charged with rob bing the mail between here and Monroe last Jane. John is now in our parish prison, where it is likely ho will be kept until nest January, when he wiil be taken to Opelousas a.«d tried before the United States District C ourt. was the driver of the stage that left 1ère last June with a registered package that never got to Monroe and that the Clarion then spoke of. Call at McMeans Bros, and buy a genuine Rogers, or Wosten holme's pocket knife. They have a beautiful line of pocket and table cutlery, which can be had cheap. They also have a fine assortment of pistol cartridges, hatchets, axes, tin ware, etc. The recent heavy rains increased the volume of water in the Barthol omew very perceptibly. A little navigation to Point Pleasant now would result beneficially to the peo ple of our parish. Shipping goods over the Vicksburg railroad and them hauling them from Monroe to Bastrop are heavy burdens on the people's pockets, and we shall be glad when a bayou shall relieve them of these enormous expenses. Every one visiting Bastrop should not neglect to call at the store of Oehlber & Goldman. It is a posi tive fact that they have the largest stock of goods that ever came to Bastrop and they defy competition in prices. Their motto is quick sales and small profits. We are glad to learn that the Town Council will at once enforce the ordinance requiring property owners to build and repair the side walks in front of their doors around the publi c square^ There ara s o: of îanks of the public for fen determination to see that the pavements are repaired. Clothing! Clothing! In this line we make a speciality, and if you will give us a trial we will prove to you that we can and will sell clothing 20 per cent, less than any house in Bastrop. ' Wolff & Silbernagel. This week we send out, folded in the Clarion, five hundred bills, which announce stubborn facts re garding those live merchants of onr town, Messrs. Oehlber & Goldman. Their stock is immense, and was purchased by the senior member of the ürin in person, who had an eye single to the stringency of the times and the wants of the people when he was buying. Cotton picking is about done in our parish. The crop is very light, and very little of it has been thrown on the market yet. Corn is selling in town for a dollar per bushel— very little offered even at that price. Facts ! Facts ! Facts Come and be convinced of the fact that goods can be bought for less money at Wolff & Silbernagel's than at any other house in North Louisiana. Those progressive merchants, Wolff & Silbernagel, are visiting our readers this week through a big advertisement ; read what they say, and then go and see whether or not they a. a willing to do what they "A good saddle aud bridle and an old w ork bridle" were found in Mr. Isaac Brown's plantation the other ctay.
