News is very scarce this week. What kind of an equinox was this anyhow t The Sedgwuck story, as first ren dered appears to be about correct. The 5th District Levee Board meets Monday. As cockleburs are rapidly ms. taring, you may look out for an early cold spell. It is now generally admitted that the State administration took no part in the defeat of King. The campaign in Iberia is said to be red hot, and bloodshed is thought to be not unlikely. There does not appear to be any probability of a republican candi date opposing Mr. Newton. A number of Congressmen at. tribute their failure to seeure a re nomination to the civil service laws. Gen. King makes no such excuse. ls-Lient. Governor D. B.

C. New ton for Congress from the 5th Louisiana Congressional district, to succeed Gen. J. Floyd King whose term expires March 1st 1887. Mr. Newton is a man highly spoken of, by all who know him, and no ill has ever been spoken of him. He starts fair, and his career is before him. Most of the "I told you so" me n were somewhat surprised by his nomination, but quite a number of gentlemen claim ed all the time, that the struggle was between King and Newton, and are in consequence, highly gratified at the corroboration of their prognostications. At the coming election in No vember a splendid opportunity is presented for Madison to regain her former conspicuous position. For the last two or three elections, the divisions in the party in this parish have caused a fall ing off in the democratic vote, and a consequent re duction in her representation in conventions. A chance is now offered to correct this state of af fairs, and by polling a heavy dem ocratic vote to place Madison in a proper and important position. It should be seen to, that every vote possible should be cast in Novem ber, and should this be done Mad ison will become, as she should be, an important factor in the next State Convention. This matter is worthy of some effort. Let us see what can be done. THE CIZrTNUT 0010. As a number of inquiries have been made concerning this inven tion, a few words in regard to it are here given. In almost every community, are to be found one or more men, who are fond of telling anecdotes. Of course they cannot tell a new one every time, and the result is, that a story is repeated so often that it gets to be an inflic tion. It would hardly be the proper caper to tell the relator of the story that you don't care to hear it any more, that you are tired of hearing that old chestnut, so in lieu thereof, a mild tap of the chestnut gong, is heard, and the story-teller closes up like an oyster. This is the origin of the chestnut gong. It is also used to discourage punning, and a few notes on the gong is generally suf ficient to stop the punster. But the inventive genius of the American citizen has resulted in opening a wide field of usefulness for the gong. Ladies should in variably possess one, and should ring them promptly whenever any of the old gags concerning the short-comings or peculiarities of the sex are mentioned in their presence; especially should the gong ring out, when the expression "just like a woman" is heard, and a thousand and one occasions when the gong could come into play with profit, will be suggested to the ladies. Growling and fault-finding husbands could be rung into, at leaut, silence. Complaining wives, could also be effectually disciplin ed. The man who complains of hull times, the man whocomplains f the heat, or the cold; the man who tells you how his father used Lo do; the "before the war" man; Lbe-in short, say man who harpe m the same old string all the time, C)hl everybody oeght to have a Ehestnnt gong, and there will be mighty few days, when it could otbe raung. Get a gong and use A Gee Nsphew. The deascon's wife wanted to jot aown the text, and, leaning over Lo her scapegrace nephew, she whispered: "Have you got a card about you ?"' "You can't play in thurch 1" was his solemn, reprov. ing answer; and the good woman 1 was so flustered that she forgot all about the text.--Exchange. He Easr. The other day one of our lady eahere was drilling some of her t rounger pupils in forming sen ences. She gave the word rumpet Each member of the lass was to form a sentence in which this word occurred. As a tarte she asked an unusually right little fellow if he could form sentenee with the word trumpet I n it. He was eagerly confident v bhat he could, and the teacher eked him to preead. This was1 is sentenee: "I will trump it I rith a spade." This, of aours, et the school-room ina re mr, and he teacher went with the tide. iO5I 8A SPECIALTT. The Degraded Indian. L "Yes," said a Kentuckian who - had been in the far west. "Indiauns are powerful fond of whiskey. Let 'erm once get the taste of whiskey and they'll give up everything for it. An old chief out in western I Dakota offered me a pony, saddle, bridle, blanket, and I don't know f what else for a pint of whiskey I r had with me." 1 "And you wouldn't give it to t him?" t "Not much. That was the last - pint I had.left. But it shows how e fond Indians are of whiskey."- New York Sun. f nteresting Zperieu Hiram Cameron, Furniture Deal er of Columbus, Ga., tells his ex perience, thus: "For three years have tried every remedy on the I market for Stomach and Kidney Disorders, but got no relief, until I used Electric Bitters.
