It is reported that some parties, by making threats against the negro ferryman at the fork ferry, have run him away, with the view of getting control of the ferry themselves. In consequence persons have been unable to cross there promptly for the past day or so. Ferries are a public necessity and anyone who maliciously interferes wit their prompt operation by intimidation or otherwise, should be severely punished. It is very annoying to have to wait on the banks of a stream at any time, and especially so this cold weather, on account of no ferryman to cross the traveling public.

Last week Mr. Gus Perryman butchered a very fine meat hog. It was only 18 months old and weighed 476 pounds. In the face of such large hogs being raised in Union Parish, isn’t it folly for our people to rely upon Armour or Cudahy or the meat trust for bacon?

Four Ruston boys — Spencer Colvin, Fred Harris, Ethelbert Kidd and George Pittard– all of good families, went to the Industrial School grounds recently and attacked a student of the institution named Sam Comer. Comer proposed to fight each of the boys, one at a time, a fair fight, and this was agreed to; but in the fray Comer seemed to be getting the better of his opponents, when brass knucks and pistols were brought into sight. As a sequel to the affair, the four first named boys have grave charges pending against them.

The Farmerville High School gave a very enjoyable entertainment at the court house Tuesday evening. The address of welcome was very gracefully delivered by Miss Ellen Haas. Dialogues, plays, songs and piano solos constituted the rest of the programme. The pupils of Mr. Roaten and Misses Cook and Robinson all contributed to the success of the occasion. The audience was highly appreciative, as was shown by the enthusiastic reception of every part of the interesting programme. At the close of the exercises, the teachers were each presented with a handsome set of books — the gifts of the children under their charge. Dr. Jameson made the presentation speeches. The teachers and the children are to be congratulated upon the success of the Christmas concert.
