:'The Sheriffs oiice was rushed du

and most of those who crowded A
the office were after their poll tax
Mr. Edward Martinet has given I
a trial to his little gasoline boat
Dixie and she runs to perfection.
The little boat is a fnlue one and
carry about twenty persons in com
fort. The boat was built by Mr.
Martinet and all the machinery I
was installed by himself; he has
made a nice job of it, and has as
fine a boat of its kind as we have have
seen on the Teche.
-Duting the past few days we
have learned that the night prow
lers have been active in this town;
with conditions as they are at pre
sent in certain quarters, we must
expect lots of night thievery. Our i
people should be careful and keep
everything under loc., and key, I
and they should be prepared to re
ceive those who make it a business
to visit their premises during the
A Higher Health Level.
"I have reached a higher health level
since I began using Dr. King's New Life
Pills," writes Jacob Springer. of West
Franklin, Maine. "They keep my stom
ach, liver and bowels working just right.
If these pills disappoint you on trial,
money will be refunded at Labbe's drug
We have often called the atten
tion of the town authorities to the
number of boisterious young ne
groes on our streets, particularly
Main street, every day of the year,
making themselves a nuisance, by
their bold and insolvent action,
howling, running and throwing
bricks, but our remarks had little
effect in abating the nuisance.
Last Saturday their brick throw
ing has cost Mr. L. J. (ardemal
one of his large plate glasses on the
building Corner Main and Bridge
streets, which was broken by a
brick thrown by one of those young
negro hoo, llums.
