We have not beard lately whether
expropriation proceedings have been

he!ieve that the two or three land

another story to the store between the

lodge and that the Hardware Co.,
g would take the entire upper :floor

there is no telling when the rains will a

EASTER RABBITS THAT LAY
o EGGS ONCE A YEAR.
Ii A Tale of the 20th Century.
1- The Famous has secured the only
two rabbits in the world that lay Easter
e Eggs. They were shipped here from
a far-away island in the Pacific
ocean. They belong to the great Kika
poo Wokapnuk, King of the Wam
warns. There is a legend in this mys
terious island that. he who eats one of
these eggs will. live forever. King
t Kikapoo keeps a guard of 500 Woka
pusians, armed with javelins and stone
hatchets, guarding the sacred rabbits
all the time, day and night. They lay
only once a year. at day break on Eas
g ter morn. Thq King and his subjects
celebrate the qvent by getting on a
"high lonesome" and raising sand gen
erally. At day break. just after .the
rabbits lay the eggs, all loyal Wokapu
sians, headed by the King and his royal
a wife, the beautiful and black Roseolo
- Sobobo, carry a small leaf of the
'.sacred cabbage" to the rattan cage
where they are kept and deposit it
there with songs and dancing. The
King and Roseoil, Sobobo then eat an
egg each in the presence of the assem.
bled natives, after which the entire
week is spent in feasting and dancing.
I'his custom has been in vogue for the
last 1000 years. The King allows no
strangers to enter his domains, Hamil
ton and Kennedy being the only ani
mals that have ever been invited to
visit the island since Christopher Col
umbps crossed the pond, except Dr. F.
E. Artaud. The sacred rabbits will be
shipped back at. 12 o'clock to-night,
guaided by six picked Wokapusians
from the mountains of Redhotto
*Brimstono. The.King is so stuck on
Hamilton & Kennedy. that he has
placed an order with them for 500
uniforms for his Rabbit Guards, be.
sides 4 stylish spring suits for himself,
made by Strauss Bros, America's
Leading Tailors. ' He has also ordered
the Royal Chambermaid of Queen
Roseolo Sobobo to select the most
beautiful Spring hat The Famous can
sell, regardless of cost, and have it
shipped over immediately and at once,
if not sooner.
When Dr. F. E. Artaud was cam
paigning in the Philippines last year.
he made a visit to the island, disguised
as one of the natives; and if any one
doubts the authenticity of this tale, the
Doctor will willingly swear to its cor
N. B.-Now all this goes to show
that Hamilton & Kennedy are known
all over the world, even in the remote
islesof the ocean. So be in the swim

When the railroad is completed,
which seems will be within less than
a year, Providence will get a big trade
from the lower end of Chicot county,
Ark. It is thickly settled and the
owners of the large and magnificent
plantations that border on Grand Lake
will no doubt come here for their
supplies. It will take bhustling by our
merchants and business men to iuduce
them to come this way, but we believe
that it can be done. There is no town
on the line of any consequence, or can
burt Providence, and as several geo
