THE TRUE DEMOCRAT.

Silver seems to be having every thing her own way at Clhic(ago. The Governor hassigued New Or hlean' new charter. Ibervillo could not get rid of the IILptr's Home. Greasy Jim, though slippery as he has proven in the hands of justice, will at length receive the pniuishinenit he deserves. The bursting of the Teller presi lential bubble will be a relief to Democrats, who do not favor giv iug new converts precedence by puntting true and tried men of the party aside. Lieut. Gallup says he will not re sign at the suggestion of the inves tigating committee. [He likes Baton Rouge better thou it likes litu. The Daily Item misses its mark when it pictures Gov. Foster as a king and on his head a crown in scribed "registration and election laws," Truly a good law is a crown of glory unto those responsible for its behiig. __ _ t The court house )pump at.

You shall cI ziot budge. tI You go not till I set yeo up a glass Where you may see the inmost part of yeo." Every Democrat should support the nomiuee of his party. There , are maniy believy.ers in soiund money , who considered that the success ot 1 free silver would be a calamity, hut I regardless of this they must stand p by the party when its majority I speaks through its council. In some ti of the Southern States should a g few thousands of Democrats stay away from the poles either Repib- w iican or Populistic rnle would be t the result, and this would be oIi nI infinitely worse calamity to them t than free silver.--Hntchez Demo crat. Cuban sympathisers hero were a delighted, on 'lThursday, by news n that came over the wires to the et- . feet that the President had recog. e uized the belligerency of Cuba, and E that in consequence 8pain bad de- C clared war against the United p States. It was in vainl that the r graver-minded pointed out that at- ti tairs of state were not so hastily re planned and executed, every one o else was enthusiastic over this pros- c4 pect of immediate liberty tor Ouba. a The evening papers arrivedl howev. tl er and contained no word of the " matter, so that we were all com- a pelled to conclude that sither the i whole is a eanard, or that t4e imews J .js o little prei'ious. -il. ,I nl I II I I I Tho Passing of the Legislature. The Legislature adjourned Thursday " night, on schedule tiune. What it has done and what it has left undone has pass ed into thljeistory ofLonisiana. Butin the eyes of implartial ovscrvers what it has done is mlore worthy of praise than what it has failed to do, is deserving of blame. The Democrats of this session had a harder task before them than at any time in the last decade, the session of 1892 excepted. They confronted a more determined op. position than ever, made up, to be sure, of anomalous elements, butt no less difficult for that reason, to conq:er. There were discord and treachery in the ranks of the party. Wounds made in 1892 were still sore to the touch. That hybrid party, The Citizens' League, introduced new ele e ments of confusion. All these conditions rendered the work of the present session very difficult, and at first seemingly im y possible of good result. That discord has been in a great degree dissipated, that the Democracy has been able to secure e the assistance of good men outside of the party, that the most important measures have been carried through to a most suc cessful issue is creditable to the level heads I of the party leaders. The election of r. Senator McEnery did a great deal towards Y healing party wounds. The passing of the election and registration laws viudicated the Democracy's desi.e to correct existing abuses, while the constitutional conven vention me:asure was wisely planned for the same purpose, but not so as to open the flood-gates of discord and factional 8 passion. On the whole, the Legislature of 1896, has done no harm to the party or the state, which is more than such bodies in the Sast can boast-and it has donegood which only the future can estimate.

A drive and a picnic are under contemplation by the entertainment committee for the teachers' delecta tion very soon. Full arraugements will be almnoaueed later. A tew of the ladies requested to serve ou the committees have not come forward as yet, bult no doubt they have some good excuse, since to be unhelpful in every noble work is toreiguh to the gracious womaun hood of this place. The committee did some good work at their meeting, Monday morning. Plans were laid for the entertainments of Wednesday, Thursday and Friday evelings, a picnic and drive in the near future, The ladies have taken up their du ties of hospitality with much enthu. siasm and with all their native tact, so that the prospects are that there will be more than one dainty en tertainwent for the teachers to re member as the welcome of our towns to them. Lecture Friday Night. The social gathering of the Nor mal, which took place last Friday i night, at Pythian Hall, was very well attended anld afforded munch enloyment to those present. Prof. Himes delivered a lecture on "The Child Garden," treated in a light, I popuhlar style, but withal containing much information and food for thought. His remarks upon being received into our local order of "Knights of Rest" which sit continuously on a certain corner, and whose initiatory and all-impor tau't rule is to drop Into the first 5 "vacant chair," got every body into a laughing humor, as did his pre sentation of a leather medal to Prof. J. N. Anglin for producing the most wildly imaginative, snaske l tery SPure Blood means sound health. With pure, rich, healthy blood, the stomach and di gestive organs will be vigorous, and there will be no dyspepsia. Rheumatism and Neuralgia will be unknown. Scrofula and Salt Rheum will disappear. With pure Blood Your nerves will be strong, and your sleep sound, sweet and refreshing. Hood's Sarsaparilla makes pure blood. That is why it cures so many diseases.
