—The iiuportauce of drainage to
the conutry on the west side of the
Southern Pacific Railroad extend
ing to the Vermilion parish line,
is impressing itself upon the people
and there is a general awakening
on the subject. Geu. Dudley Avery,
in his capacity of president of the
Police Jury, and acting upon the
authority of that body, visited
Terrebonne parish this week to
make observations of the work be
ing done in that parish. He re
turns with important data on the
subject, which he will embody in
a report to that body at its regular
meetiug on Thursday next, and
will advocate the formation of
drainage districts and the levy of a
special tax to inaugurate the im
portant work of draiuing the vast
area of fertile country which stands
so much in need of it. We will
have occasion to publish Gen.
Avery's report in full.

A PLEA FROM THE RETAIL CLERKS.
To the Public:
We, the retail clerks of New Ibe
ria respeotfully represent, that en
deavoring in a measure to follow
the example of all communities in
the United States, we are desirous i
months. To this end we will circu
1 ® te for s 'g natur e among the iner
i chants in our town > au agreement
: to close places of business at 6:30
; P. M., Saturday excepted, from May
1st to Sept. 1st, 1900.
Preliminary work developing
some opposition to our plans, we
now solicit the co-operation and
moral support of the public, and
hereinafter present for their con
sideration some reasons which seem
to us to justify our position.
It is customary in all cities to
close all the more important places
of business at hours varying from
4:30 to 6 P. M., Saturdays excepted,
when the rule is to close at 12
noon. Our hours in New Iberia
are usually from G :30 A. M. to 8:30
P. M., Saturdays excepted, when
the rule is to close at 10:30 1'. M.
These fourteen to sixteen work
ing hours of confinement tell upon
us physically as well as retarding
intellectual development, affording
but little opportunity for the recrea
tion which Nature demands, and the
denial of which she punishes.
In suffering these long hours we
are not alone. Our employers, in
order to set us a proper example of
thrift, are compelled to equally
unhealthful and exacting hours.
Under the everlasting grind which
these methods of business impose,
our families too are sufferers.
These facts are recognized by all
who have given thought to the mat
ter, and several employing business
men are entirely in sympathy with
our aims.
our
For those who are not, we have
no words of censure, believing that
fuller consideration will line them
up with us. We know that like all
people, our employers have their
troubles. In a civilization which
fails to recognize natural laws, all
its units are driven by the fear of
want to abnormal activity.
The manifestation of social dis
ease presents itself .to merchants in
a heavy expense account, a difficulty
in making adequate profits and
sufficient sales. To clerks it comes
in long hours of work and the dread
of losing their places. And it comes
in other ways to other people.
Sympathising with these difficul
ties, and striving to lighten a little
our load, we venture to say that
shorter hours, while beneficial to
onr employers and ourselves, will
neither lessen the volume of busi
ness nor the profit thereon. Just
as much work will be done, by peo
pie in better physical condition,
with minds refreshed by needed i - 8
laxation.
Can anyone believe that bankers
would increase their dividends by
working sixteen hours a day?
Prior to the maturing of economic
reform, good people of New Iberia,
our hope lies in your moral support.
Kindly let us feel that you will lend
the aid of your sympathy to our
puny effort to lift from our backs a
little of this weary "burden of the
world."
world."
Make all your purchases before
6 o'clock, and refrain from purchas
ing after the hour of closing.
Mill and manufacturing em
ployees have always been consider
ate in sending the ladies of their
families to make their purchases
for them, and we look to them to
help us by continuing to do so.
In conclusion, we ask the various
Lodges of New Iberia to have this
letter read at their uext meeting,
and pass appropriate resolutions.
T he R etail C lerks.
New Iberia, April 26, 1900.
We, the undersigned merchants
of New Iberia, do hereby agree to
close our stores on and after May
1st at 6:30 P. M., to allow onr
clerks and give ourselves recrea
tion that is essential to good
health.
This arrangement to be effective
from May 1st to Sept. 1st, 1900,
Saturdays excepted, provided all
the leading merchants of this town
will sign and keep this agreement.

in the papers of the town, to adver
tise that no business will be done

NÜ-CURE, NO PAY!
TRY IT !
A Cure for Dyspepsia. A Cure for Weak Kidneys. A Cure for
Stomach and Liver Complaints, for all Pains and Achas, and
far all troubles resulting from want of sufficient energy to
keep the body healthy.
I consider CUBAN TONIC the best tonic for tin» stomach. I have suffered with indigestion
for years, and after taking two bottles of the CUBAN TONIC I feel that F am entirely cured.
W. J. Fredericks, No . :il>7 San Felipe St., Houston, Tex.
I was nervous and weak, with pain in the small of my back and nervous headaches, f could
not run my sewing machine. CUBAN TONIC gave me nerve, strength, health and vigor. After
taking five bottles, I am able to sew all day. I heartily recommend it to suffering women.

The Singer Cabinet-Table
This table is the latest result of the
cabinetmaker's art, and is the acme
of perfection in
convenience,
simple ingenu
ity of arrangement and
thoroughness of workman
ship. In regular course, it
is supplied either in oak or
walnut, but can be made to
order in any kind of wood de
sired, finished to match the
most ornate furnishings.
By this device the machine is thoroughly protected from dust, and the stand
forms an ornamental and useful table that is fitting and appropiate to any
home. The hinged extension leaf covering the machine when down is folded
back when it is raised, thus making a table-top measuring 50 inches in length
by 18 inches in width, affording ample room for the work.

Your Head Aches To-day.
It is a small matter; but it ached two days
ago, and again a week ago. You are acquiring
a habit of headache. That must be stopped. The
trouble is with your liver. You want a mild lax
ative, and then a tonic to stimulate the appetite
and make the blood rich and pure.
