December 1, 1881,
A representative newspaper must
find its way into business establish
ments aud io every fireside aronnd
which clusters even the most ordinn
i ry intelligence. Is thore any ques
tion in the minds of the )>eople living
n the Southwestern and Gulf States,
that the Times-Dkmociut is that pa
per; that it embodies all of the ele
ments and postessos all the qualities
I that they can reasonably expect to
: find iu a favorite iqorua’^.
The enterprise, push and progress
| of the Now Oib urnt Democrat du
ring the past eighteen mouths have
bee* iue proverbial. No journal pub
lished iu the South bus made Mich
progress in tho same period of time,
fl o New Orleans Times has been for
| many years rec. guizod ns one of the
t lending j-'Urnals in the conntty. The
j consolidated ihsuo, Tue Timkh-Dkm *
I «'kat, will ctnb'K.lv tho best elements.
, the highest virtues of both. It will
Limply be, without question, the
ideal paper of tho business man, the
mecbubic, planter, farmer, tho family
and tho people of till classes and
conditions. It is waste of time to
i ennmoroto tho excellencies of its if<*
1 sues. It is tho embodiment of the
! modern newspaper. Kvery depart
ment in it has been raised to the
highest standard. Tho Dolly or the
Weekly Turns-Democrat should
reach every pi *co of business and
every hone* iu tbo Southwestern aud
Gulf States.

Judicial AlfpollllWCUU.
Jackson Com«t: Gov. Lowry seems
to bavo ailed to givo satisfaction in
many of bis judicial appointments.—
We thiuk it quite likely that any one
else would have failed as well. Ut
il scented of making partisan ap
l>oiutmenUi and to have left ont cer
tain judges because they hud been or
were Stone men. However it may
look we do not believe Gov. Lowry
i capable of doing any anch thing. We
i believe ourself that when a man is
• doing good work in any position, it
is well to leave him there, and es
pecially is this true of tho judgshipe,
and there aro some of the removed
judges who aeemod to be tilling their
i places with ability and tho most nr
. impeachable fuktites*. Snch men, f«»r
iustunco, Judge Watsou, of Holly
Spring?, we ri grot to see removed
However we recoguizo tho fact that
tho Governor, and nut wo, bits tho
appointing power, and if tho appoint
ments he makes cannot bo attacked
as incapable or unworthy, wo should
uot complain. If tho word appoint
, menus anything, if tho term fixed for
, oflico means Huything, these ofiic* *
are vucunt when refilled nud the for
! ruer judgo 1ms no more claim upon
it than any one else. Wo do uot
, think wo ought to go back of the nj>
point mi nt mid irnpanc tho motive of
j tho appointing power,or rather tbo’gh
> we may impure into the motivo it is
• uot good cause for challenging the
, appoint men fa. Oilier thiugs being
! ujiiul, it may be tukeu for granted a
man will appoint his friends. There
l is ono thing which must uot bo ovor
i looked, the Governor may bo in pns
Nfsaion of facta and reasons wbicb
are unknown to tho public.

Mhould htimnlote us to do this Ia*t i
worthy of truo soldiers.
Believing that a social rontiion cl
the above namod commands of tho
Mississippi Division of tho Army of
Tennessee is most earnestly and
heartily desired, it is horeby suggest
‘ ed that the surviving Brigade Com
j mandors confer togother and act as a

the purposo of arranging a pro
gramme for a grand, ronuion, to be
held in the historic city of Vicks
burg, Miss., ou the 20th anniversary
of the battle of Shiloh, April 6, 1882.
The Mississippi volnnteers of tho
Army of Northern Virginia, have
held pleasant reunions, and succeed
ed in forming a Mississippi Division
State Association, survivors of that
grand and immortal army, for tho
purpose of preserving and collec
ting tho history and servioes of these
veterans.

Flirtation.—The Supreme Court j
of a ne'ghboring iStato b<.h decided
tbnt when a n.nn bus for a long time
flirtodjwith a girl—waited 'on.her in
public, visited ber iu private, bestow
ed presents upon her, and played tbo
Mgreeiblo toward her ;n various lit
tle ways—it i’h pritna fucio evidence
of LiN having promised to marry ber.
And it,has been* docid'sl-’in another
Stato that, when a married woman
flirts with any man, that man not be
ing ber husband, it furnishes prims
fAcio evMonco of infidelity toward
tier hn-bnud, which in a divorce trial
should go very far with a jury in ,
finding against her. This is just !
right. A man hns no badness to
c*uU r around a girl, win ber affec
tion, be in tbo way of sotno honest
fellow, nod perhaps bo the means of
the’girl )«ring more eligible offers
for marriage, and then stio-k off like
a Miek-egg pup and say ho was “on
ly panning away llie time just for
fut.!” Or what right has a married
woman to turn away from hoi bar

of the sex upon llio tender hearts of

The Mmlrrii Flirt
But, whilo every flirt perhaps lodes
to marriage as her ultimate aim atul
object, thero are many who tuke a
continued delight in the varied ex*;
citemouts of the pursuit itself, ami
preferring the light entanglement* of,
a warm and tender intercourse to j
the binding fetters of a prematnre J
engagement, will try ami play with :
many a proffered love, beforo they j
And their own gone btforo them iuto
the keeping of some strong wooer,
who has conquered at last. These of'
course, are tho most dangerous be-!
cause flirts, who aro pointed out as |
society offenders, bccauso they do i
not sparo their power* of drawing;
men from allegiance to old, and per*!
haps regretted licit, and of discon*
ccrliug prciucdicatid family arrange- J
moots| and no doubt they must
leavo behind them somo broken
hopes, and wounded hearts around
their path of pleasure und ways of
pleasantness. After all, such as
these are the perpetual penalties of
the love-chas*; and tho men who
may huvo boon even hoartlosaly jil-!

Ilo>v To Feed For
The question in u:lioJ uio of ten,
how I feed to g**t co many eggs iu
cold wo tllior. Tuoy say tb*»y foo l
nil the corn they will eat, but they
g. t uo egge. My fowls aro always
healthy und always havo plcuty of
“g£‘* when they bring the highest
prico. Always keep pure hred poul
try,not mongrels. Lot your poultry
tuvo all tho old plaster, limo, oyster
und clurn sholls, broken fine, burned
i'oucH, charcoal and gratol they re
qniro, n good dost hot to wallow iu,
plenty of good water, not suow and
ice. Sour milk is good und liked by
them. Iu tho morning giro potatoes
and meat aerapi*, boiled und uiuebed
thickened with corn meal and wheat
diorlH. At uight feed corn or buck
wheat.
On the second morning give a warm
breakfast of potatoes nr the like#
thicken with shorts or natn and buck
whoat ground t- geihcr. Feed wheur.
Horeenings at night, and bo on. Should
have a warm meal every morning of
some kiud, nud change tho feed
every day, and not feed ntoady one
kind of food. Id mg up u cabbage by
the'iturap, the fowls will work ul it
until there is nothing left but tbe
stump. Give them two or tbrso
times a week a little bmio meal iu
Iheir mush, also a little cayenne pep4
per. Keep them in go-»d, warm
quarters and clean and free from lieu
and other vermin, Pullets will ley
more eggs in tho wiuter than old
hens, if they aro early ones, March
or April hatch.
It fakes A little longor to pmpim
