Prof. Strickler Could Not Be Found. At a meeting of the Board of directors of the Winnfield High School held last Friday, Prof. G-eo. A. Payne, of Fort Worth, Tex., was elected principal for the coming session of the sel.ool. At a former meeting Prof Strick ler, of Chrystal Springs, Miss., was elected, but he could not be communicated with, either by mail or wire, and as the time for opening was drawing near it was decided to elect another princi pal, which was done by electing Prof. Payne. Prof. Payne is well known in this parish, he having been raised near Montgomery. He has made teaching a profession, and was principal of the Georgetown school for the past three years. At this meeting of the Board it was decided to raise some of the salaries. The salary of the first assistant was raised to #75 per month and the second, third and fourth assistants to $50 per month. At the former meeting the board did not elect a fourth assistant, but at Friday's meet ing the matter was taken up and Miss Belle Barr, of Oak Ridge, La., was elected as fourth as sistant. This completes the fac ulty with the exception of a mu sic teacher and one will not be elected as yet. But later, if one is needed a teacher will be selected. Prospecuag Tour. W. E. Lee, of Sherwood, La., is visiting Dr. A. P. Collins, of the second ward, and the Doctor brought him over to town Satur day to look around here, to see the handle ftctory, ice factory, oil well, etc. Mr. Lee is a pros perou8 farmer and was prospedt ing for a place to invest some of his savings.

Small but Appreciative Audi ence Greeted the Humorist. Luther Manship, one of the foremost humorists of the south, entertained a Winnfield audience last Friday night with a program of humor, pathos and dialect. He was here to supply a date made by the lyceum bureau for some time during last spring, but the high waters all over the coun try during the spring knocked the lecturers out. They could not reach their appointments, at least two dates going blank be cause the lecturer could not reach us. The course was ar ragned by Supt. Moss and Prof. Dale and iconsisted of four at tractions, all of which have now been given ant were appreciated( by those who attended. The audience which greeted Manship was small, but in be ginning his program the lecturer called attention to the fact that on one occasion when Plato, the Greek philosopher, stepped on the platform to deliver a lecture he was greeted by only one hearer, and that one was his pupil, Aris totle, who became greater than his teacher. Manship kept his audience smiling very broadly most of the time during his lecture, which made them feel better for having attended. ..-|c-- . Mistake In Date. A typographical error last week made us say that the High School would open the next session Sept. 15. The correct date of the opening is Monday, Sept. 14. ICE FACTORY DEEP WELL Has Been Finished and Affords Good Water. Contractor Hajley, who con tracted for the deep well at the ice factory, has finished it up and will now go to Freemont, La., where he has a contract for sev eral wells. The contract for the ice factory well called for 80,000 gallons of water every twenty-four hours. The well is now 686 feet deep and, with the use of a pump, affords about 65,000 gallons per twenty-four hours. The water is as fine as ever came out pf the ground and has a tempera ture bf 60 degrees, which is lower than was expected. This will furnish the factory plenty of water and it will be run regularly. Seventeen to Seven. A game of base ball wasplayed Sunday between a team of te Wionfield boys and the Dodson team. It was not a very exciting game, the home beam being too much for the Dodson boys. The score resulted in 17 for-Winnfield to 7 for Dodson, the home, boys giving them seven runs to keep them from feeling too blue. The Genuine vs. Counterfeits. The genuine is always better than counterfeit, but the truth of this statement is never more forcibly realized or more throughly appreciated than when you compare the genuine De Witt's Witch Hazel Salve with the many counterfeits and worth less substitutes that are on the markht. W. S. Ledbetter, of Shreveport, La., says: "After l using numerous other remedies i without benefit; ore box of i DeWitt's Witch Hazel Salve . cured me."

M3. Griggs, pastor of the M1. P. church at this place,, has just closed a successful revi val meeting in "mill town." %hi, hi is in the southern portion of Winnfield. The people of that portion of town have been con ducting open air services. for over a year now in a hautiful grove of pines and Rev. (;:i':i h:, been preaching for them. This summer they decided to hold a revival and after buildling an harbor. the revival opened up in dead earnest. Every service was well attended and much spiritual good was done. There were ten Accessions to the church and if Rev. Griggs' health had not failed him, the rt vival would have continued a fGw days longer, and it is probable several others would have united with the church. Those interest ed in the revival say it was a great victory and that satan got severely set back. As soon as they can rest up a little the re vival is going to be resumed and satan will get another jar. Rev Griggs is doing good work among the attendants at this revival. LOUISIANA NEWS NOTES.

A clispatchl to the Shre:, ,pirt Timels, from Newt O rlea:s. ..a-: Tl'he city c(ou.ncil to-night grd:it: 1ed the Louisiana and N,\igatin Company entrance into the city. It was given privilege to reach the wharves over the proposed he't tracks which the New Orlean-. terminal Company is obligedl to build. Time Louisiana comipain% is the Red River Valley and pro vides that in case the terminal or Frisco company did not build the belt within a year the .Red River Valley Company should go ahead and construct the track. The Frisco fought this hard claiming it had a vested right but the objection was met by the argu ment that if the Frisco was sincere and built the road no conflict would result, and if it failed in its obligations the Red River Valley and the city would be justified in going ahead with the work. The ordinance was unanimously adopted. Both the Frisco and the Red River Valley promised to build here without delay and other railroads are expected to seek entrance, the city reserving the river track for all comers intending to complete them and provide impartial management.
