It is a source of gratiication to
THE every Populist in Louisiana to sonee
how firmly their representatives in
the General Assembly have lined
P up in solid phalanx and withstood
the temptations and threats of the

but by unity of action they have
shown themselves a power and

In the support of Mr. Denegre

the oldest and worst enemy they
Syhave ever had-N. C. Blanchard
.. and yet did not suffer defeat them
selves, because Denegre was not
their first choice.
. The ranks of the Citizens League
wavered and St. Paul went over
into Poster's arms, the Democratic

with them as a close second stood

not This solid front of the Populists

ic To insure early maturity, the

d with Bourbon, with an occasional

a mulch. Must be kept free from Z
Populistic growths, for fear of i
