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

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.

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.

We notice in the W est Carroll

Sam Baird, has embarked in the
law business at Floyd. Athough
Sam is not yet a licensed practi

him as a "legal adviser" and ex

and that is the sincerity of our

They also have a fine assortment of

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

In this line we make a speciality,
and if you will give us a trial we

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
