Richard Olsey, former secretary of state, is being groomed by the anti-Hill men in New York for the presidential nomination of the Democratic party.
The republicans in the House insisted on increasing the appropriation for the free distribution of seeds from $270,000 to $300,000, notwithstanding the protests of the secretary of agriculture and chairman of the agricultural committee. They evidently realize that republican votes will be hard to get next election and desire a large amount of “pie” to distribute for that purpose.

The bridge across the Loutre at the old Ivey ferry point is said to be in a dangerous condition. It might be well for the police jury to arrange about repairing the bridge at the present session; or, what would be better, to have an iron bridge constructed across the stream there. Iron bridges cost more than timber structures at the outset, but they are by far the cheaper in the long run.

A dispatch from Vicksburg, Miss., dated Feb. 2, says: Yesterday evening at six o’clock while a west bound freight train was being put on the transfer boat at this place a distressing accident occurred, resulting in the death of four persons. While backing down the Vicksburg incline, six freight cars got loose and dashed down the incline, ran through the transfer boat and into the river. In one of the cars was a Mr. Land, of Newton, Miss., his two sons aged 16 and 12 and another boy aged 20. The car in which the man and boys were in turned end ways and began to sink. The cries for help of the imprisoned man and boys was piteous and men leaped into the car with axes and tried to cut a hole for their escape but before this could be done the car sank beneath the water and all of them were drowned. Mr. Land was enroute to Monroe, La., to settle there with his family and had his household goods, horses and cattle on the car. All this was lost in the river.
THE KINDS OF SEEDS THAT YIELD. As everybody knows there are good seeds and bad seeds, seeds that grow and seeds that don’t grow, seeds that yield and seeds that don’t yield, and a little thought given now to the selection of the seed, you’ll need, will be found at harvest time to have been well spent if you select the world famed Ferry’s Seeds — the kind that always yields. For nearly half a century Ferry’s Seeds have been known and sown wherever good crops are grown, until farmer and gardener alike, have learned to depend upon their wonderfully reliable growing and yielding qualities, year after year, to the exclusion of all others. The Seed Annual which is sent free, postpaid, will be found unusually interesting and instructive. Write for it today. Address D. M. Ferry & Co., Detroit, Mich.
We notice from the Shreveport Times that Parson W. H. Evans, more familiarly known as “Wild Bill”, is billed to commence a revival meeting in Shreveport Friday. Our sympathies already go out to the good and refined people of the Queen City, who will doubtless be forced to swallow pulpit slang in unbroken doses, if they attend this so-called religious meeting. If “Wild Bill” wants to do any spiritual good, he should leave his rough uncouth slang unsaid. Such coarse language might be properly appreciated by the saloon loafer and street tough; but in the house of God people naturally expect to hear only refined and elevating language. Their expectations will be sorely disappointed unless “Wild Bill” has changed up in his vocabulary since his visit in Farmerville about 18 months ago.
Harold P. Lane, more familiarly known as “Lane of the Leader” has at last been heard from, but we fear that his many creditors in Ruston, whom he so successful duped, will not be much benefited by the knowledge of the whereabouts of their erstwhile friend. In last week’s Leader appeared the following: “Mr. Tom Green, lat of Manila, Philippine Islands, recently returned to his home in Ruston, and reports that during his stay in Manila he met Harold P. Lane, “Lane of the Leader,” lat of Ruston, who is a present engaged in running a gambling hall, saloon and restaurant in that city. Mr. Green, who knows Lane well, having worked for him in Ruston, says he visited Lane’s layout and talked with him at various times.”
