son, they proceeded to cultivate the
low-lying lands energetically, and
had promising young crops all along
the line, with bright prospects
of a prolific yield front the fresh
productive soil; but alas! the much
dreaded Arkansas levees yielded to
the pressure of the unexpected water,
and let down upon us four eeperate
and distinct streams of large volume,
so that today all the crops we
refer to in the low-lying-lands are
under water, totally, completely and
hopelessly destroyed. This is what
we may safely term hard lines.
Several. indeed most of the small
planters in the interior Pre persons of
limited means; many of them almost
entirely dependent upon supply mer

The hard lines we are writing about
are not confined entirely to the small
crops in the interior. We are much
pained to learu that several planta

we bear in tuind the extremely short
crop of last year, and the very low
figures at which the bulk ot it was
sold, we cannot but be painfully im
pressed with the great distress that is
bound to ensue from the present dis
astrous condition of things in our
parish. Truly we may sadly repeat,
But in referring to the present
calamity and its dismal surroundings
it is not our purpose to "boo-hoo" or
magnify the misfortune that exists,
but rather, as best we may. put in a
few timely, cheering words of advice
that may be productive of some good.
The mouth of June comes in next
week; there is no immediate prospect
of the water going off the overflowed
lands where the crops were growing;
there are hundreds of acres of land
not Inundated that might be utilized
to some extent to keep body and soul
together as a dernier resort; "half a
loaf is better than no bread." We
mention this incidenutly, for we are
bound to suppose that all the sufferers
have been casting about for the best
means and methods to retrieve their
failen fortunes as far as possible,
which we sincerely hope they may be
stuccessful in doing to a considerable
The pulpit rather than the paper is

Sing but sometimes in cases of consid.
erable calamity and far-reaching dis

perform, a sort of outside persuasive
duty to discharge, and this, in our
opinion, is one of those sometimes.
Very few among the myriads of
humanity that do not sometime or
other meet up with misfortunes in
their pursuit of home comforts, com
petentcy, and present and prospective
happiness. Some unfortunates meet
adversity at nearly every turn of the
road, living a life of trials and tribula
tions-having their every effort for ad
vareement checkmated, yet still
striving on until the final struggle
come, that closes out all earthly anxie
ty and care.
There is no grander eight on earth
than to see a truly brave man fearless
ly struggling with adversity and bat
tling bravely to keep despair from his
door. This is really a part and parcel
of the brief life we live, and this is
mainly done under disheartening cir
cumstances in behoof of those who
are helpless dependents upon the
loving care and big hearted devotion
of the strugglers.
The situation in East Carroll with
many today, much resembles what we
have dimly portrayed; let them take
courage and struggle on.

forth as our plea for such long silence
in the columns of the B.-D. that 'if

peculiar extraction iv greater than
that experienced by our feelings in

hope never to be forced to try the
dental operation in question. Es

we fancied that the 'spirit of hospital

invite us in to join our good friends

us to our place. But the time is not
far distant when we hope to make up
for our discomfiture in earnest.
The best news current in the Hill

that must make glad the hearts of our
friends of Carroll, for the going down
of the mighty river is of equal inter

THE NO FENCE LAW AGAIN.
Banner-Democrat :-It is needless
for me to say that your paper is al
ways a welcome visitor. Its columns
of solid sense, luterspered with pun.
gent paragraphs and witicisms of the
genial editor are always read with
Being native to the manor born,
and feeliung a deep aud abiding inter
eat in all that pertains to the weltare
of old Carroll, we must say that we
read witll astonishment and surprise
the ordinance passed by the wise
solotns of our pariah called the 'uo
fence law." It does seem to us that
this law was pasald, not for the ben
efit of the masses, but a favored few,
who are either the owners or lessees
of large plantations.
It is a well known fact to all think
inug men that the substantial prosperi
ty of a country depends upon the
ability of the producers of the soil to
be self-sustaining. .Raise their own
hog and hominy, their own cattle,
mules and horses, and Dot have their
corn cribs and smoke house in St.
Lotts or New Orleans; their horses
mules and cattle in Missouri or Ken
tucky; not to belong to commission
merchants, whose agents they really
are, and who in a few years will own
their land and their all.
Then we ask, Is it right, is it just to
the bone and siuue of a country, who
own or lease a few acres of land, to
force them to build fences to keep up
a few head of stock, that cannot do so
well as on a range? Now say there
are 225,000 acres of land in your par
ish and only 68,000 in cultivation,
now why not fence in the lesser
quantity and utilize the 197,000 acres
for stock raising? In our humble
opinion your solons have made a woful
atistake in this ordinance, and the
sooner it is repealed the better. It
will have a tendency to drive the
thrifty farmers from your midst, and
when they migrate, in what will your
wealth consist ? They cannot pay the
prices imposed by law when their
stock depredate. It will be coufisca
tion. In the name of the intermedi
ate classes. In the name of justice.
In behalf of glorious old Carroll. For
her welfare and prosperity, we say
repeal this law.
