Last week the police jury of Union Parish decided to build a new and modern court house on the public square in Farmerville. The body adopted a plan of a structure submitted by A. J. Bryan & Co., architects of Jackson, Miss., and are now advertising for bids for its construction. The building is to cost not exceeding $28,000; and will contain offices for the clerk of court, sheriff, district attorney, judge, assessor and grand jury, besides the main court room. The design selected is very neat and pretty and will be a decided ornament to the public square. Besides it will guarantee the safe-keeping of the valuable public records of Union Parish. We congratulate the police jury upon the progressive step they have taken.
