Do You Want a Kitten?
Some miscreant left a peck amni a
half of 2-weeks-old kittens in the
alley back of a gentleman's house
last night. Their mewing attracted
thel attention of his household and
they were corraled by the various
members of the family and taken in
and given a night's lodging. The
kittens are lively little fellows of all
colors and sexes. If any boy or girl
wans one or moe of those kittens, let
him or her call at this ofltice. Ther
are spotted ones and yellow , ries anid
gray ones and black ones and white
ones and all coroinattion coltrd ries
among the lot. The brightest aind
liveie .t of the kittens has already
found a home and has been christened
Ogden. A gray and white one has
been named Hicks, because it was
too slow in getting to the milk pan
this morning and so got left.- -Shreve
If the Caucasian furnished the milk
we will venture that it was so well
iwatedred that the lively kitten didn't
find enough nutriment in it to repay
,him for the exertion necessary to
reach the pano, and we feel assured
that the gray and white one knew it
too, and dlidnt try to get there.
Once a resident of Bossier parish,
always a resident: and a rman never

for Jackson cast their ballots for Og

The people's choice for Congress is
THE PRouiGSS' choice and we stand
committed to support him.
The Charity Hospital here had a
