We don't want to be considered inquisitive, but we would like to know what has become of that project to build a platform or a pavillion on our public square; also, why don't the town push the sidewalk project to a deflnite conclusion? Both these measures are very muoh needed for our town, and ought to be pushed p-rsistnltly and vigorously until they are secured. BSOLUTE SAFETY is the best thing we have to offer.

Many hundreds yesterday availed e themselves of the opportunity and saw Sells & Gray's shows unloal from their trains and pitch their mnay big tents at Billings Park. It's a b.g' Si show, a "hummer," as the small boy puts it, and it takes nineteen tents ley actual count, both big and little, to accommodate it all. What's more, they are all new and bright in appear ance and fill a:1 the available space inside the race tracks. The parade later today p:oved all that the most sanguine anticipated. It was both large and novel, 'and sev. 1 eral features were noticeable that were never preoeated here in a parade be. fore. Everything about it looked clean and up.to.date, especially the 1 large number of beautiful horses and the c3stumes of the people. Many handsome ladies are with the show R and quite a number participate in the I parade. The magnitude, novelty and merit of all that could be seen frie with the show probably had much to do with getting the immense audience the show had this afternoon. The tents were literally packed and some could n't get seats. The performance prov ed an absolute surprise, so much grtater and better was it than antici, pated. It is a foregone conclusion now that the big tents won't hold the thousands who will attend tonight :as the downtown reserve I seat sa!e at 355 Main street aol1, out tonight a en tire reserve space a few moments b;', fore five o',c'ock this afternoon..

WAGNER d Pays the Penalty of his Hor rible Crimes. g1 Ed. Wagner charged with the mur. F 'er of Patsy Goff on Utopia plonta tion near Raceland La., on the 22nd, of December, 1898, was hung yester. day at noon in the parish prison. At 12.05 the death warrant was read to the condemned man and he listened to the decree with much com' posure and coolness saying "thank you' s as the last works fell from the lips of the sheriff his hand were then tied, and he was led up a narrow flight of stairs to the scaffold. The rope was placed around his neck at 12:6 and V the signal was given at 12:7 and the trap fell at 12:8. Upon nearing the scaffold he began to quiver like an e aspen leaf. At 12:20 he was pro nounced dead and his body was low ered, the rope removed, he was placed in his comno,'and his body was buried in Potters graveyard. This human monster is said to have killed several persons in the I parish of St. John the Baptist. He ewas algo charged with the killing of a whi e :nan hv the name of Ross, in a lev. ec c:.v in the parish of Iber. ville. W':g.cr was ca;t:ared by Sheriff Beary in the At,:ti f.,ayi, swamps on Ihb J2Ih of Last June :,nd he was conruitc l to J..ii on the 13;h of June. Si, rift Berry deserves great deal So)f cr. dli for this important capture, and ,he po. ;e of JLafourche can feel certain th.it he will never leave a stone unturned in ferreting out the Sviolations of the law. An Agricultural Fair In many sections of the State I agricultural fairs are being held. These fairs are under the directions of the Bureau of Agriculture and Immigration. In the parishes where they have been held the greatest good has been done. They have educated the agriculturists in the more advanced methods of farming, have stimulated them to strive to out do one another in the yield and the quality of their products, and have proven the best incentives to reach the goal of their ambition. To make two blades of grass grow where one grew before. "All the products of 1 the farm and plantation are there exhibition and their cultivation ex, plained; the dairy, the orchard, the garden, etc, are all represented by the "best the lands affords." and a spirit of emulation is created which is productive of the greatest good.

The Ruston Leader, in regard to p the attacks by the press on the pistol ii habit, says: Undoubtedly that is one of the p ways to create public sentiment u against the evil habit, but the trouble is is that the great majority of those p who carry the gun and do the damage o are beyond the educational influence ti of the press for the simple reason that iz they never read newspappea.

On those days the Catholic church gather its members together to do honor to their beloved dead. Beautiful and solemn is custom to set apart days in commemoration of those who have preceeded us to the eternal borne be. ' yond the skies. As prayers asceud on high and sweet flowers are scat tered over the graves of the dead, the memory of their many good deeds are re ecalled, man's transitory sojourn on earth is vividly impressed upon the mind, and the path through ways of righteousness clearly pointed out for the christian to follow. It is our duty to remember the dead, and of b such great importance is this held that the Catholic church has centuries ago e recognized it by devoting those days in honor and commemoration of them. There is nothing which purifies the mind more than the silent communion with the dead. As we stand over the grave of father or mother, wife or D child, and pay the only tribute to e their memory which is in our power, ewhat are the thoughts which crowd f the mind, what are the emotions which fill the heart? To review their sweet and holy lives to look through the vista of years and recall each kind act, each good deed, creats a feeling I that we are in their very presence again, and the tears that dim the eyes. anul the throbs that move the heart, assure u~ that the love we bore them I is sti.i alive. The religious spirit in .which this tribute, this veneration for the dead, is observed, makes its im portance greater. No feasts on the colendar of the Catholic church is t mare sacredly kept by the faithful than All Saints and All Souls Days. The Cheapest Thing is Life. e ',The cheapest thing in the South is i hu~ian life and the country won't be worth a tinker's damn until the price [ is raised."-Advocate. 1 Will it not remain cheap as long as e the pulpit and press maintains its present attitude of silence and indif ference to crime? Are we of the e press performing the sacred duties of e jourualism. when making excuses in ;, almost every local cauie where human t life is taken? If we do not openly. condone killings do we not suppress comment if the killer happens to be Sto tha manor born? Have we ever t I roasted a jury for acquittal at a time every person In the coi..munity knew full well that the accused was guilty? t Do we not know that when criminals I have influential friends that it is well I nigh impossible to convict for any crime? i Let the pulpit and the press do its I duty fearlessly and human life will a be more secure. Proclaim. the con mandment "thou shalt not kid,' ;ii thunder tones and follow the pro,;a. mation up by a few convictions, and the price of life will be raised. Good and true men, Christian meu, are in a large majority in this pal ish, a as well as in every paribh in the State, and if they once decide that wiilft I killings shall stop, life will be worth it much more than at preseit. Let the better people quitt going on cbonds and creating sympathy for criml:ats, and a change will soon come, b ,t the duty of impressing upon the minds of our I people the decree of the Almighty issued upon Mount Sinai "thou shalt not kill," falls chiefly upon the pul. o pit, while the suppression of practices which lead to the escape of the guilty 7 is the duty of the press. Let the pul, pit and the press inaugurate a vigor i ous campaign against crime: let them thunder anathemas against those who w interfere with the workings of courts of justice; let them resolve that this South of ours shall be blood guiltless, o and the man of bloody inutaicts wfill soon seek more congenial climes. Let even and exact justice be done a to all. Persecute none; favor non Preach law, human and divine, from the pulpit, inspire meu to a lofty conception of the duties of citizenship cc with the edito.ial pen; urge strict en. tl forcement of the law without fear or favor. and blotody deeds will soon be as rare as they are in the best gov u erned and most Chrmstianiz.ed pbrtion t of the earth. Yes, neighbor, "lite is the oheapest I thing in the South," but preachers of tbe gospel and moulders of publi St opinion are largely responible tur this sad condit.ou. th Neither weak sermons nor pueri'eo editorials will cure the body politic. Vigorous deauncationef eriie from a the pulpit and bold fearless editorials from the press, ai4d h thLe effrts of the best men and wq.*en a are the only efmeacious remedies. So longias preachers snd editors shirk solemo duties, so long will crime r fouri- h.
