Se' .e\,r; I of the foremost planters t .- (.. in expect to have some i , I round before the end of the ,\et i e others will begin planti,ng next cnk if the weather r(in ins fa.vorable. The dirt oien winter has enabled the pla i's to put their grot nd in exc,"l,: c, onditin fo seeding. Most of tthe planrters are through plowing while somIt h;ave their ground ready for tlhe drill. o( far as we can learn, there will, in all prohibility, be a c(nositderable ldecre~ase in acreage planted in this locality this season. The planters here are coming to realize that their prosperity depends less on the number of acres planted than upon the quantity and quality produced per acre. The Lash of a Fiend would have been about as welcome to A Cooper. of Oswego, N. Y., as a mer ciless lung racking cough that defied all remedies for years. "It was most troublesome at night," he writes, "nothing helped me until I used Dr. King's New Discovery, which cured me completely. I never cough at night now." Millions know its match less merit for stubborn colds, obsti nate coughs, sore lungs, la grippe, asthma, hemorrhage, croup, whooping cough, or bay fever. It relieves quickly and never fails to satisfy. A trial convinces. 50c, $1. Trial bottle free. It is positively guaranteed by all druggists. In Memory of Mrs. F. 0. Radeke. Our beloved sister Radeke was a charter member of the M. E. Aid So ciety, organized May 3rd. 1900. She was a faithful worker and her life was an example of Christianity. We miss her presence and the inspiration of her example, for she went about doing good. But we will likewise seek to follow Christ, our Master, until we are united in that upper and better kingdom, where no farewell tears are shed. To those who mourn there is but one comfert and that, God alone can give. Methodist Episcopal Aid Society. Rayne Merchants Live Ones. That the Rayne merchants are live ones is evidenced by the amount of advertising they are carrying in that dispe.ser of good news, the Rayne Tribune. In last Saturday's issue of the Tribune, aside from the regular run of small advertisements. the moIr chants of that flourishing little burg carried dive full page :,dvrtikements. It is no wonder that R ,yne i, always spoken of as a live t,,uvn, when her merchants show this kiid of get up and hustle. Don't Break Down. Severe strains on the vital "ri ans, like strains on machinery, cause break-downs. You can't ,over-tax stomach, liver, kidneys, bowels, or nerves, without serious danger to yourself. If you are weak or run. down. or under strain of any kind, take Electric Bitters, the matchless tonic medicine. Mrs. J. E. Van de Sande, of Kirkland, Ill., writes: "That I did not break down, while enduring a most severe strain, for three months, is due wholly to Elect ric Bitters," Use them and enjoy health and strength. Satisfaction positively guaranteed. 50c at all druggists. It Sawv4 His Leg, "All thought I'd lose my Leg," writes J. A. wensen of Watertown, Wis. "Ten years or eczema, that 15 doctors could not cure, had at last laid me up. Then Bueklen's Arnica Salvecured it, sound and well." In fallible for skin eruptions, eczema, salt rheum, boils, fever sores, burns, scalds, cuts, and piles. 25c at all druggists. Telephone Users, Attention? Please refer to the new directory for calling purposes, and we urgently re quest that you destroy the old books when receiving the new ones. A great many changes occur during the inter val between directories and much con fusion arises when using the old books. Please refer to the latest copy. New books will be printed March 15th, 1910. Be sure to get your changes in. Cumberland Tel. and Tel. Co, (Incorporated.) White Frost on Morning of 15th. Despite the fact that according to all signs spring is now here, there was a white frost in this section, on tie morning of the fifteenth, which was sufficiently severe to blacken potatoes that were coming up, and to wilt the new beans. It is hardly likely that it effected the fruit in this section, al though it may haye done so further north. A Man of Iron Nerve. Indomitable will and tremendous energy are never found where stomach, liver, kidneys and bowels are out of order. If you want these qualities and the success they bring, use Dr. King's New Life Pills, the matchless regulators, for keen brain and strong body. 25c, at all druggists. LOCALS CONTINUED Prof. Arnett went to Estherwood Saturday to see about selling some property that he owns there. We believe he contemplates buying in Welsh, in case he makes the sale at Estherwood. Misses Hebert and Agullard of Bell City took passage from this place for New Orleans, Tues day to attend the Sunday school convention, as d(elegates from the Bell City Sunlday school. W. T. McAffrey has double occa sion for rejoicing, his wife having presented him with a pair of twins Thursday morning. The new ar rivals are a girl and a boy. The Journal extends congratulations to Mr. and Mrs. McAffrey. Messrs. Austin and Anthony Hebert went to Port Arthur Tues day to inspect the bi ,n at that city. These gentle men are both good fishermen, but they yield the palm to Port Arthur this time. Judge Wm. P Russell, Jr., went to New Orleans to attend the an nual meeting of the Knights of Honor. and incidentally to attend the State Sunday school convention which was in session in that city this week, as a delegate from the Baptist Sunday school. Geo. Russell, who is representing the International Correspondence School, of Scranton, Pennsylvania, came down from Alexandria Sat urday evening for a week's end visit at the home of his parents, Judge and Mrs W. P. Russell, Jr. He left Monday morning for Lake Charles, from which point he will again go north later in the week. Mr. and Mrs. P. H. Goodreau re turned Tuesday morning on No. 8, from Markham, Texas, where they were called last week, on account of the serious illness of Mrs. Good reau's Brother, Chas. Longuet, who passed to his reward last Thursday. Mr. Longuet is well known to the older residents of Welsh, having lived here for a number of years, before moving to Texas about nine years ago. A. J. Haven and family of the Mayville plantation, started for Sulphur Valley, Arizona, Monday, where they have taken a home stead and expect to make their home in future. The Havens came to this country from Missouri about two years ago and have proven themselves to be good neighbors and good citizens, and will be missed by the community "where they have been living.

The followiun coImmnI:icationh was received too late for publication last week, from one who has visited that thriving little burg and finds live, hospitable, progressive people, and many of the enjoyments and conven iences enjoyed by much larger places. "In passing this little village on the fast going trains, no doubt, many passengers from larLre cities, look out and say to their follow travelers, or, perhaps to themnselves, that 'this is a very quiet, dead look'ng place', but let them stop awhile and so The population is small, but 'tis a buhs one, if not growing, and a most hos pitable people, charitable to a marked degree. "Roanoke has a flourishing, well equipped school and the Sunday school and church attendance is ex cellent, also the Christian Endeavor society, in which the young, as well as the older members, take part. And there is the M. A. 1M. club, composed of ladies. They meet every two weeks, in the afternoon, showing that there can he REAL ENJOYMENT without the male sex. The club is composed of both married and unmarried ladies. Occasionally they hold a meeting in the evening to which the gentlemen are invited. "We have a little news agent, who makes his rounds every week, selling the Saturday Evening Post, "We had a most excellent discourse Sunday morning at the U. B. church, by Rev. W. L. Childress of IJennings, which was enjoyed by all present. "We do not as yet, possess an auto, nor do we envy those who do, but we can't suppress the longing to take a spin now and then, when they speed through our streets, still we content ourselves with the thought that 'our time is coming bye and bye, and are like the old wcman, who said 'she lived in hopes if she died upstairs', Although we have no paved streets or electric lights, the mocking birds sing just as sweetly, the flowers are Just as fragrant and we are a contented people, G. --" ORDINANCE NO. 144.
