The Fourth at Abbhllla.o
A Rousing Celebration Was
Given by the Band
The patriotic people :f Abbe- t
ville duly honored the 'Nation's
birthday. From early morning
until late at night the noise of t
guns, the fun and frolic of the m
multitude, the music of the band
and the indulgence in sports and t
dance continued, making the t
celebration of the anniversary of c
the Declaration of Independence
one of the greatest, grandest and
most glorioius days thathas been t
known here for many yvars. t
The Abbeville Cornet Band
was given the benefit of the cele- t
bration and the program of
sports and other amusements,
under the direction of R. W. Ber
nard, was of the highest orderl
and gave lots of amusement to i
the big crowds which Were in at-
tendance.
As usual, on the Fourkh, the
rain spoiled some of the outdoor
features and made it necessary
to hold the dance at night in
French hall, but the wet weather
could not dampen the good an
ture and jollity of the people and
the entire day was given up to
general enjoyment.
Quite a nice sum was realized I
for the benefit of the ban#d and 1
the boys certainly deserved all
the support accorded them by.
the people in the pleasr which 1
was given by their eAcpllent
.music during the day and at the
open, air concert at nighii

Effects Of The Storm.
It is difficult to determine the
exact amount of corn that has
been destroyed in this parish by
the recent floods, but the damage
has been very great in all sections
On the upper part of Coulee Kin
ney and on Coulee Baton, as well
as the Chaneaux flats all of the
corn on the lowlands has been
totally ruined. It is too lase to1
replant and some of the farmers
will not save an ear of their crop, .
which before the rain promised
an abundant harvest. A few of
the more enterpsising planters
are going to try and secure some
of the Mexican Laguna corn,
which it is claimed will make a
full cop, eyed if planted as late
as August 15,this particular var
iety requiring only 65 days to
mature.
DeaEnesm Caonnsp be CureZ.
By local applications,as.they cannot
teach the diseased portion of the ear.
There is only one way to cure deaf
ness, and that is by constitutional
remedies. Deafness is caused by an
inflamed condition of the mucous lin
ing of the Eustachian Tube.. When
thir tube is inflamed you have a rumb
ling sound or imperfect hearing, and
when it is entirely closed, deafness is
the result, and unles the inflamation
can be takn .out and this tube restored
to its norl condition, hearing will
be destroyed forever; nine cases out of
ten are caused by is catarrh, which

the mucous surfaces.
We will give one hundred dollars fdr

tarrh) that cannot be cured by Hill's
