It is always a pleasure for Tux a
PRooRses to speak of enterprises
which deserve credit and special men
tion for their business tact and en- t
ergy displayed. In line with this, it b
gives us special pleasure to laud and
commend the Southern Hardware t4
Company as a company which has 0
made great strides on the road of pro- a
It has worked up an immense and tl
flattering trade, not only in Shrere, tl
port, but in the entire bordera of 0
North Louisiana. This is due as much
to the splendid quality of goods o
which it handles as anything else. tU
Their stock of heavy and shelf goods
is superb, and it is being sold at
Rock-Bottom Prices. 0
Besides this stock, the Southern
Hardware Company is absolutely d
headquarters for. °
Levee Serapers.
Two carloads just received this ,
week from Western Weeled Scraper Ib
Company-both wheel and drag t
scrapers. We claim these scrapers v
to be worth twice as much as any on
the market. Contractors will use
nothing else, either on railroad or f
levee work. Ask men who usescrapers c
for a living whose make'to buy; so
don't make -a mistake now and buy ar
