The Opelousas Courier in speak
ing of the opposition to Cotton bag
ging existing in Liverpool says: It
looks as if there will be trouble
when the shipping season begins, as
our planters have determined to use
cotton bagging. As some of our
leading exchanges have intimated,
there need be no trouble about the
matter. Just let our American ex
changes withold shipments to Liver
pool until the Liverpool Association
can "see its way clear."

A good story is told on-a Georgia
editor lately returned from Paris.
On being asked what he-though of
Boulangers chances of overthrow
ing the Republic hlie replied: "Well
sir," in my opinion General Bulan
gerin bound to win. He may or
may not be a great military leader
but I can tell you one thing-he hhs
got a corner on all the bakeries in
France, and the man who controls
the supply of bread in that country
can never be beaten, I doubt, sir
whether a loaf of bread can to-day
be bought in all France except at
one of Boulanger's establishments."
The joke is that the Georgian was
ignorant of the fact "boulanger" is
the French for baker, and that the
signs over the doors bearing that
word simply indicate that they were

days of July the thermnometer never

Thosu of our citizens who are
hesitating to vote the modest tax
asked by the Kansas City, Louisiana
and Gulf Railroad and the New
Iberia Abbeville and Western tRail
way, should read the following ex
tract from an article in the Richland
perish .eacon and feel ashamed of
their penurious. Spirit to such an ex
tlent as to willingly vote the tax.
Especially when the natural wealth
and advantages of Vermilion are
compared with those of Richland
and all this too in face of the fact
that the pariah has one railroad
already. We are in favor of all
railroads. "We have voted a proper
ty tax to three different roads. The
L., A. & M.. the N. O., & F. S.
and the H., C. A. 6 N. roads."
The City Item has made the
discovery that Judge Davis S.
Terry, who was killed in California
by United States Deputy Marshal
Nagle, was born on the waters of
the west fork of Red river in Todd
county, Ky., only three miles from
the place where Jefferson Davis,
President of the Confederaqy, first
saw the light. It is worthy of men
tion that here, in a space of five
miles square, were born Jeferson
Davis, Roger Q. Mills now of Texas
Chairman of the Ways and Means
Committee of the last Congress:
James Pendleton, a famous leader of
the Baptist church; ex-Gov. Bradley
of one of the Territories, Judge
Davis S. Terry and AddisoH Cam
mack. the great bear operator of
New York city. This bit of territory
lies party in Todd county, and part
ly in Christian 6unty, and it is
noted for men of siue as well as
brains. It has now within its bor
ders six men weighed over 400
pounds each, eleven over 250 pounds
and so many who have passed 200
that they don't count. There are
more than twenty women who weigh
over 250 po.ads each.
The present outlook for this por
tion of the State is most encouragi,,g.
Not only capital is seeking invest
ment here, but all the attendant
blessings that follow in its wake are
manifesting themselves in enterprises
for steady and substantial improve
Monroe has a north and south
railroad extending twenty-five miles
below and the same distance north
of the thriveing little city.
The Homer lap, extending from
Gibbs, is being pushed South. A
railroad meeting is being at lfeld
Rayville for the purpose of building
a north and south road, and the
Brinkley road is an assured fact, as
also the road now in process of con
struction through our parish.
Thus we see in an extent of abount
110 miles there have been projected
in the last eighteen months five
railroads crossing the V., S. & VP.
R. R., on four of which active opera
tions have bekun and partially com
pleted. If such progress has been
made in such a short perio-l of time,
what may not be expected in the
next eighteen months ?
Our people are waking up to the
advautagets and necessities of the
time. Rapid transit and unlimited
avenges of commerce by railroad
are no longer luxuries, but are
necessities, which advanced progress
and, the age in which we live de
Railroad building years ago was
slow progress, now science has come
to the aid of old ways, and tihe
machinery and improvements it has
devised have nmade these seeming
herculean tasks comparatively easy
What unlimited resources this
country has is yet unknown, and
certainly only partially developed.
Railroads are needed to develop
our section. They are the only means
of developing a country now. The
slow creeping teams of the "moover"
are too primitive. The age demands
the iron horse, and without it we
will be what we deserve to be--noth

co-operation with the United States
signal service, for the week ending
Saturday. August 31, 1889.
There has been a general lack of
rainfall in nearly all sections of
Louisiana for several weeks, asd al
though crops are at present in good
condition, yet a general rain would
be-very beneficial. In Bienville par
ish stock water is falling in Win.
and Vernon piarishes crops are re
ported as actually suffering from a
drought, and there is a'eneral com
plaint from the sugar region as to
the evil elects of the abeence of
The temperature has averaged
degrees below the normal for the
week, and the sunshine, excepting in
a few Southern parishes, has been
more than an average amount.
The cotton crop is reported ma in
good condition and picking is fast
ýbecdming general in all sections of
the State. In some localities the
worms are reported as having entire
ly disappeared; in others that poi
soning is being kept up with succem,
and generally that the damage from
worms has been trifling, and that
an average yield is expected.
In Vermilion parish heavy looal
rains are reported and they
have injured cotton to some eateat.
The first bale of cotton was shipped
from that parish on the 27inst.
The rice crop is being harvested
and good returns an expected.

It is to be hoped that the Bagging
Convention which has been called
by the New Orleans Cotton Ex
change to meet in that city on the
list will devise some plan to steer
clear of the dificalties besetting
the opposition to jute bagging. The
President of the Liverpool Cotton
Association, Limited, has telegraph.
