THfOMPSON URHES SCHOOL IMPROVEMENT (Continued Ifrom page 1) good school houses and the im provement of general school conditions. Many people in this town and in this parish would be surprised to hear that we are busy right now in making provi sion to build nine modern school houses in country districts where taxes have been voted. The Opelousas School District today is hemmed in on all sides by school districts in which special taxes have been voted. On the north we are bounded by the Washington District, voting a special tax of two mills for ten years for maintenance only. On the east we butt up against the Port Barre District where a spe cial tax of five mills for ten years was voted for the purpose of building and equipping a modern school house. On the west we are bounded by the District No. 2 of the Sixth Ward, which voted a tax of five mills for tens years to build and equip two school houses at the town site of Lawtell. On the south comes the School District of the Second Ward, which voted a tax of three mills for ten years to build the school houses needed and ade quate to meet present conditions, the school building at Sunset having been already built through the municipality and the contri butions of private individuals. I do not desire to become in vidious in these recitals of what has been done by other commu nities, but I give them to show that all that I ask for can be granted to the improvement of school conditions here without resulting in any special hardship on anyone. I have written this communication for the purpose of arousing school sentiment in this community, and laying the basis for its discussion. I might go more into details, but that would involve the question of more space in your valuable paper and would be too long for an arti cle of this character. With the hope that this article will bring up this important ques tion for discussion in this com :munity, I am, Yours truly, C. J. THOMPSON. yNOTICE OF ADMINISTRATION ESTATE OF W.J. DERIIES. 'No. -.

Here I sit in restless mood Under melancholy's vital strain, I cannot think of pleasant things, The dark doth come like a shadow o'er me; Those who could make life worth living Are cold and harsh toward me. I go to school like a martyr to court; All lool at me with scorn; To speak to me would mean dis grace, If one did have thelnerve. A castaway can't feel the pain Of one thus bayed with foes. A friend did come to me oneday; He said to me in pleasant tones: "I came to ask a boon of thee, Go to that girl in yonder room; Tell her I told you come, to bring news from me; Perhaps she thinks not hard of you. And like a friend for that I felt, I gave the girl the news; But O, when her answer came! Her voice was sharp and shrill; She told me "go" and take my way, For she was "tired" of me. My words I try to pen for you; But my thoughts I can't express; A cloud of grief doth hang o'er , my life; 'Tis dark and cold; my eyes are dim with tears. Without a friend to tell my grief, I now bid joy for ere farewell. AN ORDINANCE. To provide a penalty for the in decent conduct of persons within the corporate limits. Section 1.

To the White Democratic Voters of the Parish of St. Landry: Only a week now remains before the primary election to select representa to serve you in the Legislature for the coming four years. thave endeavored to s.i ; as many.otdts in person as possible during the campaign, but, of course, I have not been able to see all. The time is now so short before election day that it will be, utterly impossible for me to see in person those from whom I seek and expect support. I have endeavored to make plain to the people the platform upon which I stand so as to leave no doubt in their minds as to my conduct in the Legislatusi should I be elected. First and foremost I desire to state that I shall stand for anything making for the betterment and advancement of the interests of my constituents, and will always be found voting for and conscienciously advocating any muasure that will imptve ; conditions politically, morally and socially in the State. I believe in the curtailment of the rovernmental expenses where same can,~ i accomplished without jeopardizing the efficiency of the government. I believe abs.ý lutely in the abolition of sinecures; in appropriating more money for educatio.al purposes; in increasing the pensions of Confederate veterans; in consolidating all offices that may be consolidated, if by so doing it will save expense to the goveni~e t and not destroy the efficieney of such department or departments of the ,govermren,' I will do all I can to aid in taking care of the Insane. In a word, I am in favor of such reformatory measures as will insure to tli people a more economic administration of their affairs and that will guarantee them, adequate returns for the money paid by them in taxes, etc. To that end and I shalli work in hearty accord with the administration and will ever be found in the forefront ; striving to make Louisiana a greater, grander and more prosperous State. If the people are satisfied with these promises and pledges, I respectfully ask their earnest and hearty support at the election on the 27th inst. Very respectfully, A. D. STEWART, Candidate for the Legislature from St. Landry Parish. IS tACRE BaG R EE i. .. rt.n..o . . " n' Alalwmt " VIRGINIA GROWN SKING SEED ta e,::ra o+ t Kiag trei that pntm 'o - otfaof.
