Montgomery, announcing tn himself as a candidate for re-election to the office of district judge. The a able and efficient manner in which the s. Judge has discharged the duties of his office, combined with his proverbial S impartiality and correctness in decid ing all legal points in the trial of cases, makes any introduction of him to the as publhc unnecessary; and this is partic s. ularly evidenced by the fact that in !, Madison, as in East Carroll, his quali b, ficatiousa as a judge are highly spoken )r of. With an experience of eigbt years e ion the bench, he stands before the n, people again, and we are of the opitn es ion that he will prove a most formida. iy ble opponent in the lists for judicial iii honors.-Banner-Democrat. me If the people of East Carroll and at Madison parishes are awake to their n- own interest they would elect Judge of Montgomery without a dissenting ne vote. We know the Judge personally u. and can but add our feeble commen ry dation of a man who has dealt out im partially justice to all for the past )e eight years. Every colored man with ig an ounce of manhood should give him ] their vote, while he Is a died in the wool democrat,he is an honorable man, upright citizen and kind neighbor. SWe hope he'll be unanimously re elected. The above is taken from the Calcas leu Blade, edited by a colored hian, John W. Dozier, who:was a professor c. in the public school of this plare, and was highly respected, not on) by his own race, but by the white pepp)e as well. We take pleasure ia ying the comment. Mrs. W. B. Meek, who resides at Camp tonvylle, Cal., says her danghter t was for several years troubled at times with severe cramps in the stomach, and would be in such agony that it' wad necessary to call in a physician. Hav ing read about Chamberlain's Colic, e Cholera and Diarrhoea R!hedi she concluded to try it. She fI t it always gave prompt relief. Iwas seldom necessary to give the second dose. It has not only saved . a t of worry and time," she says, ."but' also doctor bills. It is my opinion that every family should have a bottle of this remedy in the house." For sare by J. S.
