A Fact About the Blues

Died at his father’s home on Sept. 14, 1902, Mr. R. R. Towns, aged 26 years 9 months. While in the bloom of life God saw fit to remove him from this land of sorrow and disappointment to fairer worlds on high. “I am going to rest” was his last words on earth. Too pure and too noble to stay in this old world of trouble, God has called him home, to that home above where no one ever wishes to return.

Cheer up, sad hearts;
Cease repining;
Beyond the clouds,
The sun’s still shining.

A Friend.




The Fair

The fourth annual meeting of the Union Parish Fair is to be held in the Academy grove at Farmerville next Tuesday and Wednesday, and a full attendance is urged upon all residents of the parish and adjoining parishes. These fairs have been heretofore a source of great benefit and pleasure to all who have come to them. Let us make this be the most successful one that has ever been held. The managers of the fair have gone to a great deal of trouble and expense for the enterprise, and it is due them that the entire vicinity encourage them with their presence and the produce of their land and work. But not only as a duty, but also as a privilege does The Gazette urge everybody to go to the fair. At such a place old friends who have not met for years clasp hands and renew fond memories, while they look at the exhibition of Union parish produce. And these exhibitions aside from the interest they have as fine specimens of agricultural and domestic enterprises, are a real encouragement to every resident of the parish. Many of our people have no idea what our land is capable of producing until they see one of these fairs. The live stock, the fruits and vegetables, the fancy work and the creation of the kitchen that may be seen in Farmerville next Tuesday and Wednesday will open the eyes of many people who think that we live in a “poor hill parish”.

The premiums offered for the exhibits in the different departments are well worth the trouble of making the exhibition, but let each one try to contribute some article to the fair, not so much for the premium that he may receive, but that he may show his neighbor something worthy to be seen. In doing this one can give another inspiration for better work in the future.

Lunch will be sold on the grounds, so, for those who do not care to bother with lunch baskets, there will be convenient and appetizing refreshment. Come early, bring your entire family, and let us have a grand fair.


THE GAZETTE, one dollar a year in advance.
