Tackle Our Advice, Zeno !
If there is any one thing more than
another that we feel ourselves fully qua
liiead to give, anl full measure at that,
it is advice-n that score we are solid.
In fine, we are simply chock full of ad
vice--t ooses out of us, so to spedk, with
that copiousness, which even the volume
.f ler.plaration running over a negro
standing before a hot furnace door in the
month of August, is as nothing in com

Mr. Editor: Which do you consider
the best gymnasium manufactured. I

Please answer in your paper.
The best and simplest gymnasium,
Zeno, in the worid -one that will give
Sou "thorough" exercise and that can
be purchased at most any of our town
stores, is made of a flat piece of steel,
notched on one side, fitted tightly into a
frame. Here is how you must put it in
operation : After being greased on both
sides With bacon rind, rub it, with
plenty of elbow grease, into a asick of
wood laid lengthwise in a saw buck.

The farmers of this parish by all
means should raise their own horses and
mules. They can do it as well as. not.
"'Where there's a will, there's a bay."
We know some farmers here that have
been successful In raising stock, and
why not others? There certainly is no
money in cotton at 74 cents per pound,
and the quicker all our farmers get out
of the old rut of raising cotton, and
nothing but cotton the better for them.

Icnhristuelng an Ohio Townl
When an Ohio town changes its name
there is hn and no mistake. There tisa
small town out that way called Tilton
ville and its tax payers, in order to get a
borough charter, found they would have
to get another name. They adopted
Beilvidere but reeonsidered the motion
and dropped that name for the virteous
reason that it had been suggested by a
saloon keeper. Then they hit upon Au
burn, but had to let that go becausea
Ohio already has one Auburn. Finally
they got around to polities and the De
mocrats held a meeting and declared the
town named Grover. The Republiemas
kicked and demanded another meetand
at wh:likDenacratsashouhl :ot do all the
votlng the other meeting came of and
no did a free tight, in which the Repub
licral were driven out wi.h revolvers.
The DeI ucrats remlaintd itn tih school
house all night sad went home to Lreak
fast eheerin gfor the new town of Grover.
p Orover is not a bad name, after all,
the chances are that Tiltonville is Til
tooville no more and that peaes resi
in the new borough.
