son, a scion of humble but honest
parentage, and one who in the
struggle of life has had more
than would seem his share of
adversity and vicissitudes, but
in spite of destiny, luck or
chance he has steadily advanced
up the hill of fame and favor
until destiny sought him out as
the one to lead the Democratic
hosts to victory and forever
stamp out opposition in the
grand old commonwealth.
Ruffin G. Pleasant has been in
public life in Louisiana for the
past several years, has been
tried in many capacities and has
been found wanting in none;

will be found as honest, as true

African slavery right down

Ee'ery customer is satisfied, and In many
eses surprised at the results. It cleans
out the wormy horses that "eat their bohds
