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 parison. Cor quently, imagine our elatenes when we were offered the fol lowing oppportunity to let her flow : (No Date.) Mr. Editor: Which do you consider the best gymnasium manufactured. I mean one that will afford the most healthful recreation and at the same time thoroughly develope the muscles. Please answer in your paper. ZExo. 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. -[Alexandda Tows Talk. Icnhristuelng an Ohio Townl Philadelphia T1mer 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.
