The fact that President and his Cabinet will take the stump this fall, possibly with two exceptions — men who can’t make a speech — is commended by the Republicans and condemned by the Democrats. The former says it is “going back to the good old times,” and the latter that “it is undignified.” The “opposition” are harsh enough to say that the Cabinet have been “ordered” out and must obey or resign.

I have a car load of Buggies and Surreys, and will have some of them here Saturday. Those wanting such vehicles will do well to see my line before buying elsewhere.  J. D. BAUGHMAN. 

An anomalous condition: Prosperity all round, with wages advanced 10 per cent, meats 25 per cent, other provisions 48 per cent and coal nearly 100 per cent, and yet there is very little dissatisfaction except among those laborers who have thought it necessary to engage in strikes. This condition, however, cannot last. Wages must advance in proportion or the necessaries of life be reduced, otherwise, prosperity will be but a name, and not one to conjure with.

Everything Comes To those that wait, even now and then aches and pains, Rheumatism, Catarrh, Neuralgia, and everything that hurts. Hunt’s Lightning Oil keeps off everything except old age and death. Try it. 25 and 50 cents. Satisfaction or money refunded.

To-day, the 10th day of September, ends the six months which the citizens agreed to allow the promoters of the railroad to secure timber options. These gentlemen have lost no time and spared no expense in their endeavor to meet every promise made to the people. It is a fact, however, that the people have not shown the enthusiasm they should, were they wide awake and really  desirous to have the road. The necessary amount of timber has not been secured, yet these gentlemen are still endeavoring to get up the required amount and at a very large expense to them they are making an earnest effort to estimate the timber upon which they already have options so that if they can possibly build the road without loss to themselves they will lose no time in beginning its construction. After this estimate is made, however, should they find it impracticable to build the road for the timber they now have already secured, they, of course, will abandon the enterprise. It behooves the people, therefore, who have homes and property interests in Union Parish and who have not given options to come up at once and with the other public spirited citizens aid in building the railroad before the project is entirely abandoned by its promoters.
