Remember the name and place, BUSH & RANDOLPH, Fatrmnount, La. A primary election has been or dered for Thursday, Novemrber 25, VC 1897, to nominate a Populist candi- 'h date for the Constitutional Con- in vention from Grant parish. The ar Populist executive committee, in A making the call say it is necessary b4 to elect a Reformer (with a big R) iQ from Grant parish to this conven- i[ tion. We will see what they mean to by "reform" by the sort of man they put forward for this impor tant trust. ti Mr. John C. Blackman, son of t Judge W. F. Blackman, and a re- ti cent graduate of the law depart ment of Tulane university, was in- ii troduced to the court in Alexandria a last week, and his name ordered to b be placed on the roll of attorneys. I He will practice in the courts of a Rapides, Grant and surrounding parishes, and also in the Supreme 1 court. The Populist executive commit- e tee met in Colfax last Saturday, I and instituted measures to raise a c hurrah in order to get their people I out to register, as they seem so far I to have shown little disposition to E I turn out They have had circu Ilars printed with the view of giv ing information on the subject, and also propose to put men on horses and send them around to dnll the ignorant in the way registration is to be done. The Democratic State Executive S(Committee which met in Alexan dria on the 9th inst. have called for a convention to meet in Baton Rouge on Thursday, Dec. 9th, for the purpose of nominating 36 can didates for the State at large as delegates to the Constitutional convention. Serry He Sinned. i Ediar CoCfax Ckronicle: In your last issue you said: "Fe lix Boyd, the colored magistrate in ward one, seems to have queer ideas as to what is law and justice. A late decision rendered by him indicates that he thinks it all right for him to connive with his own son to beat sn igtiorant old woman oat of a bale of cotton." What I did was not an error.of the heart but of the head. I have cancelled the judgment and will hereafter try to obey the law. Yours respectfully, FaLt Born. Theabove is good as far asit goes.

For twenty years we have faithfully recorded the happenings in this community, nothing extenuating of and setting down naught in malice. And now, with cheery words and renewed hopes for the "good time coming," we fr make our bow and start in to do our part th in bringing about the era for which all have earnestly labored and waited so N long. _ The Cause of Hard Times. 6 The following terse way of put ting the case, by the Murfresboro, Tenn., News, is the best explana- th tion of why we have hard times 'r that we have yet seen: "We let our timber rot and buy fene- M ing; we throw away our ashes and grease i and buy our soap; we raise dogs and buy bogs; we let our manure go to waste and fa buy fertilizers; we raise weeds and bay Ia vegetables and brooms; we catch 5 cent fish with $4 rods; we build school houses M and send our children off to be educa ted; and, lastly, we send our boys out with a $40 gun and a $10 dog to bunt l 10 cent birds. Yes, times are hard." The thriftlessness of our south- J ei n people is painful to contem- a plate, and in these latter days of i calamity howling, when every other 7 man you meet is a finanoial states- U man in embryo, a plain unvarnish- ' ed statement like the above is a ti refreshing change.

The SuBapreme Court convened in New Orleans on Monday, Nov. 1st, Judge Nicholls, Breaux and Miller constituting the bench, as they are immune, having had yellow fever years ago. None but consent cases will be tried, all others continued. The law prohibits the holding of this court elsewhere than New Or leans. The New Orleans States says one I reason why the present yellow fever has increased and spread more rapidly is because it is of such a mild type that many people, afect ed with it, do not take to bed, but keep on attending to their business and moving on the streets and thus communicate it to many others. Few deaths have occurred from the present type of fever, per se, but in almost every death reported there were com plications with some other disease, liver complaint, kid ney disease, etc., which the persons were amlicted with before taking the fever. e Miles and Knot& e A statute mile is 5280 feet. It y is our standard of traveling meas are, adopted from theEnglish, who, in turn adopted it from the eA , mans. A Roman military psee, by which distances were measured, was the length of the step taken b7 ` Roman soldiers, and was approxi wately fyve feet long a thousand d i these pames were called in Istin a 0 mile. The English mile is, there fore, a purely arbitrary measure, I nacted into a legal measure by a Sstatute during the reign ofat - Queen mbeth; it has no eco - neetion with any seale in nature. r A natiel tmile, on the other brid is equal in leuth to one-.it. y tiet of the leagth ofa degprtee a great cirleo of the earth. But the ` circumference of the earth is no where a true circle; its radios of curvature is variable; hence, the 0.-, fa nautical mile, as a matter of fact, = depends for its length upon the shape, as well as the size of the in globe sailed over; and hence, strict ..r ly speaking, the length of the naun == tical mile should vary with the lati- i tude from 6046 feet at the equator to 6109 feet at the pole. Such ex treme accuracy is not necessary in navigating, and cannot be well at tained without any undue labor. The English admiralty, there fore, have adopted 6080 feet as the length of a nautical mile, which corresponds with the length of one sixtieth part of the length of a de gree on the great circle of a sphere x whose surface is equal to the sur face of the earth. This gives the length of one nautical mile as equal to 6080.27 feet, which is very near ly the value of the admiralty mile adopted in the English navy. Prac tically the nautical mile is 800 feet longer than the statute mile. In other words the nautical mile is equal to 1.1515 statute miles; or one statute mile is equal to 0.869 nautical mile. Multiply nautical miles by 1.1615, and the product will be statute miles; or multiply statute miles by 0.869, and the pro duct will be nautical miles. fIecks' 1686 Almanac and apr.p.
