A prospective groom in Sabine Parish was arrested for the nonperformance of road duty on the evening that he was to have been married. Had it not been for a friend, who went on his bond, the would-be benedict would have gone to jail instead of standing before Hymen’s altar.

A Physician Writes. “I am desirous of knowing if the profession can obtain Herbine in bulk for prescribing purposes?

Citizens of Union Parish are undergoing considerable inconvenience now over failure to receive mails regularly and promptly. Practically no paper mail reached Farmerville for eight days, and from Monday evening till Friday evening no letter mail from Choudrant — the route that brings most of our mail — was received. The roads are in a bad condition it is true; but it seems to us that we could be given more satisfactory mail service.

Children’s Coughs and Colds.  Mrs. Joe McGrath, 327 E. 1st., Hutchison, Kan., writes: “I have given Ballard’s Horehound Syrup to my children for coughs and colds for the past four years, and find it the best medicine I ever used.” Unlike many cough syrups, it contains no opium, but will soothe and heal any disease of the throat or lungs quicker than any other remedy. 25¢, 50¢ and $1.00 at R. Haas, Agent.

Last Wednesday night a burglar entered the store of Mrs. Mary Loper at Cecil, this parish, and stole $635 in cash from the safe. Mr. Walter Stripling, who has charge of Mrs. Loper’s books, says he locked the safe the night before, and as it is reasonable to assume that the thief was familiar with the combination. He entered the store through a window. There were some checks and other valuable papers in the safe, but they were left undisturbed.


Some interest is being developed in next Monday’s municipal election. We understand there will be two tickets in the field. Last week Farmerville people failed to get their paper mail and having no general news or railroad developments to talk about they had to discuss something, and hence fell on next Monday’s election, with the result that they have gotten up a race of more than ordinary interest.

The negro Thompson, alias “Catfish,” who was convicted last September of selling liquor without license in Bernice, was released from jail Monday morning. When “Catfish” was first placed in jail he was black as the ace of spades, but when he came out he was a light mulatto. He doubtless was “blacked” to prevent identification at his trial; but he was convicted all the same.

Mrs. Thomas J. Bullock, of Shreveport, has confessed to poisoning her husband. She claims that she was driven to her awful deed by long years of brutality, and that she lived in constant dread of him.
