In times of trouble and misfortune, it
seems that the best that is in every one
comes to the surface, and that all the
I as good in one is expended in the public
ore welfare, each man and each woman doing
iy his or her duty to the fullest extent, as
re. they see it.
We have just passed through, or are
er passing through, a period of trouble and
te public anxiety, and we feel that in justice
to ourselves and the community, we'
Sshould return thanks to some of those
who labored so untiringly and inceeeently
119 in their efforts to protect us from the
n4 flood waters or to do their part to help us
tly after the overflow came.
Icd Too much cannot be said in praise of the
magnificent, efficient, and intelligent serv
ow ices of our Levee Commissioners, and
ir- Messrs. Schoenberger and Barton, Gov
al- ernment Engineers, for their labors dur
r- ing the high water period. Thesegentle
ml men were "on the job" both day and ,
s.j night, ever ready to respond to the call
GS to duty and doing their duty cheerfully
To these gentlemen we owe a debt,
which we can never pay, but we assure
V them that they have won for themselves
Lk a warm place in the confidence, respect,
isand esteem of our Deople. *
DT The manager and operators of the local
t (umberland Telephone exchange gave as
good service as could have been asked or
,leaired day or night. Our telephone calls,
and at times they were sent in with light
ning like rapidity, were answered prompt
ly and chea'rfully, and our community
appreciates the invaluable services
rendered. We congratulate the Telephone
Company and the public on having such -
an etficient force in charge of our local
With train service suspended, our mails
were nece".arily irregular, and the Post
Mistress and her valued assistant, re
alizing thi,. and that the people were
anxious to receive their delayed mails,
opened the, mail every night, although
some timer it was quite late when the boat
arrived. We, the people, fully appreciate
such acconmmodating service and sincere
ly thank thesae ladies for having so ineon
1 venienc+d themselves to accommodate tus
We are again called upon to thank the
men of St. Joseph, both white and
colored. for having so willingly volunteered
to guard the levee for a space of four
miles both above and below town.
These volunteers were on duty day and
night, freely giving their services to the
public, and we can assure them that at
night our sleep was more calm and
peaceful knowing that the levee was
caretully patrolledl and guarded.
Owing to the recent water and conse
quent inconvenient methods of travel,
and especially from lack of business, the
regular March term of District Court is
I ordered pretermitted. It is also ordered
- that the jury commission will not be
. called to draw a jury for the regular
April term, there being practically no
criminal bnuiness on docket necessitat
ing jury trial; all criminal business comn
ing up for the April term being triable
by the Judge.
We congratulate Mr. Tom Parker, who
I won for clerk of court, and Mr. Mansfield
Crowe, who won for assessor, in the run
I of held in West Carroll Tuesday, 29th.
5 They are two tine young men and their
many friends are delighted over their
election. Mr. Calson won over Mr.
' Yerger for asesor in Madieso parish.

Every step the feminine sex takes
along the lines of progress, as they
are pleased to define it according
to the suffragette's ides, is fraught
with hardship for man. The fol
lowing story, once published in the
New Orleans Daily States, Is repro.
duced by ms with the earnest-yea
prayerful-bhope that it will serve
as a warning against the misfortunes
that must follow in the path of the
Twentieth Century woman, imbued
with misleading ideas, and in her
mistaken belief, wandering away
from the sacred precincts of home
which nature intended as her sphere
of usefulness, and after the false
gods of modern day delusion. Here
is the States' story:
The States is in receipt of the following
pathetic communication which in ex
plaining itself will sweep the chords of
human sympathy in not a few masculine
breasts in this community:
Dear Sir:-I writes to say that I thinks
there air too menny mhther's clahu in
in this here town what air not good for
the pieceof the home. My wife she be
long to sum of them and from the way
she acks and talks she air gettin' ready
to jine sum more. She is the vice pree
erdant of a mutbur's club, an active
membur of sum kind of league what is
reformin' the publick, and also member
of an orginysashun to make war sain
tnbuckalusus and uther things which I
have not yet hear about.
Before we had these muthur's clubs I
ust to git my meals regler which air not
now the case, and I knows of sum of my
nahors what have the samine complain to
make and air feel;n' just like me in re
speck to the matter. The trubhe with
the muthur's club is that they hole their
meetins when they ort to be satin' dinner
like other fokes which is a heavy tribe
lashun for a man to bare what comes
home hungry and has a wife what is a
memhur of a club. Mr. editor I writes
to know if there is airy way to cure the
evul what is growing on the cumunerty
so that we can git our meals rngler and
not have to wate until the clubs git tru
talkin' on the benerflta of spreadin' the
lite of edercushun in the homes of the
pore, for it kin be spread so as not to
intrfere with the dinner hour and the
cumfurt of the domestick circul.
It is a regret that there air no woman's
club organised her to stimerlate eeck
shun fer the vertues of the freside and
the duties of the household and the news
papers ort to pint out this fact, fer these
air the means by which the evul kin be
kilt and many hard workin' men git
their meals rgler.
We sympathise with Family Man, but
there is little hope of his securing the re
lief he desires. These be progressive
times and the modern omaan progresses
with them, hence the "Motherm' Club"
is a natural evolution of the advanced
thought and condition of the time. These
and kindred organizations are firmly
convinced that they have a great mission
to perform, and once a band of noble
women get this idea into their heads
their mental wires become crased and all
connection between them and such
household obligations as regular measis is
cut of instantly.
We would like very much to be able to
furnish Family Man with some grains of
hope and comfort, but under the circom
stances it is impossible. He will be all
the better for realizing that there are
others in his sad company and resolving
to take his medicine with the best grace
possible. It seems to as the only recourse
he has, all things carefully weighed and
considered, is to puirchase a small oil
Sstove and to fry his own ham. He may
be miserable, but there is no reason why
be should not be independent.

With the rapid recession of the overflow
waters the train crews are busily engaged
in repairing the track and rme. bed and
this week the train got down a far as
Newellton. It is expected that we will
have train service to St. Joseph from the
North by next week and possibly through
to Natchez. The damage to the road-bed
is not found to be as bed as was fteared,

Ferriday was less seriously damaged. We

SPastures that have been inundated for
a few weeks; wil be entirely clean of this
a infection, all eggsand seed ticks will have
e been destroyed, conseqbntly if all cattle
from these localities are properly disin
fected, thus destroying all the ticks on
e the animals before they are allowed to
d return to the range, these particular
,r pastures will be free from ticks indefinite
, ly, provided in the future no ticky cattle,
horses or mules are allowed access to them
without first being (lipped. The best
e method of destroying the ticks is by
e means of arsenical dip and wheredipping
e vats are any way accessable these should
be used. The animals should be dipped
twice within a period of from 3 to 7 days
spart, after which it will he absolutely
safe to return them to the clean range.
This should be done immediately after
the second dipping unless the cattle are
obliged to swim a stream, when it advis
able to defer moving for about 12 hours
o after final dipping.
Planters having but few cattle and no
available dipping vat may use soap
emulsion which consists of one pound of
soap, (either laundry or soft)disseolved in
e a gallon of water by heating, allowed to
a cool and add one quart of coal oil to each
gallon of the preparation. This is an
I effectual germicide and may be used for
lice or ticks on all farm animals. It
Sshould be used thoroughly, using a cloth.
The above is suggested as a cheap, easy
and effectual method of ridding pastures
- of ticks, without the necessity of a season
r dipping. When a considerable portion of
rs parish is overflowed, influence should
be brought to bear upon the Police Jury
I that they adopt regulations protecting the
, It frequently happens that the overflow
r covers territory, that is, under ordinary
I conditions, the hardest to clean by dip
ping methods, as it is often composed of
* many hundreds of acres of open range.
Cattle are more or less wild as a conse
quence, and it is with difficulty that all
cattle can be collected every'dipping day,
which proceedure is of course necessary
under ordinary conditions to destroy all
ticks in a pasture.
The overflow occurring at such an early
date, there would he but slight tick de
velopment and it should prove exception
ally easy with the co-operation of the
planters in these overflow sections to
clean and keep clean their pastures.
