Union Parish timber lands sold at public auction Saturday for $15 per acre. A few years ago this same land would not have brought over 50 cents to one dollar per acre.

REPULSIVE FEATURES.  Blackheads, pimples, greasy faces and muddy complexions, which are so common among women, especially girls at a certain age, destroying beauty, disfiguring and making repulsive features which would otherwise appear attractive and refined, indicate that the liver is out of order. An occasional dose of Herbine will cleanse the bowels regulate the liver and so establish a clear, healthy complexion. 50c at R. Haas, Agent.

The advertisement of the Louisiana State University appears in this issue of THE GAZETTE. This institution offers superior advantages to young men who desire a thorough education on either scientific or literary lines. Many of the most prominent men of the State hold their diplomas from this school, and those who attend the institution become acquainted with and form friendships with their brothers who are to guide the ship of State.

The Perfect Liver Medicine.  Mrs. M. A. Jolley, Noble, O. T., writes: “I have used Herbine for a number of years, and can cheerfully recommend it as the most perfect liver medicine, and the greatest blood purifier. It is a medicine of positive merit, and fully accomplishes all that is claimed for it.” Malaria cannot find a lodgment in the system while the liver is in perfect order, for one of its functions is to prevent the absorption of fever producing poisons. Herbine is a most efficient liver regulator. 50c at R. Haas, Agent.

The good people of Bernice have been so long worried with the blind tiger offender that their patience has almost ceased to be a virtue. Last Saturday an illicit liquor seller had shipped to the Bernice depot a barrel of whisky. It developed that the liquor belonged to Mr. C. L. Lewis, and while he was having it hauled from the depot a party of indignant citizens seized the stuff and destroyed it. The affair caused a ripple of  ????. The liquor was consigned to “John Rixy,” but no person by that name is known about Bernice.

The Boss Worm Medicine.  H. P. Kumpe, druggist, Leighton Ala., writes: “One of my customers had a child, which was sick, and threw up all food, could retain nothing on its stomach. He bought one bottle of White’s Cream Vermifuge, and it brought up 119 worms from the child. It’s the boss worm medicine in the world.” White’s  Cream Vermifuge is also the childrens’ tonic. It improves their digestion and assimilation of food, strengthens their nervous system and restores them to the health, vigor and elasticity of spirits natural to childhood. 25c at R. Haas, Agent.

Tabor, Sec’y. Shiloh, July 11, 1903.

CURES SCIATICA. Rev. W. L. Riley, LLD., Cuba, New York, writes: “After fifteen days of excruciating pain from sciatic rheumatism, under various treatments, I was induced to try Ballard’s Snow Liniment, the first application giving my first relief, and the second entire relief. I can give it unqualified recommendation. 25c, 50c and $1.00 at R. Haas, Agent. 


Hole in the Lungs

There are thousands of men and women as well as ever, with holes in their lungs: consumption stopped.

Consumption stopped is consumption cured. What does it?

Some change in the way of life and Scott’s emulsion of cod-liver oil.

With the emulsion, give some attention to circumstances: change from a dark damp close room to a sunny dry airy one; from city to country; from hard to an easy life; indoors to out.

A hole in the lungs once healed is no worse than a too-tight waist or waistcoat.

Take emulsion and give it a chance to heal the wound.


A Tripple Hanging. Smith, Brown and Jones hag their hopes of hopes of recovery upon Cheatham’s Laxative Chill Tablets. They will be around soon shaking hands with friends. 25 cts. No cure – no pay. Sold by J. D. Baughman and B. T. Hopkins.

The police jury completed the reviewing of assessments and other business to-day and adjourned till next regular meeting in September. The body elected the editor of THE GAZETTE public printer for the ensuing year, for which we extend thanks. The action of the police jury relative to sending a beneficiary cadet to the State University was rescinded. When the matter was first considered a majority of the body was under the impression that the State paid the expenses of beneficiary cadets, and finding this error, they repealed their action in that respect. Full proceedings will appear next week.

Mr. L. H. Henry, merchant of Holmesville, was in our office Monday morning. He told us that the six-year-old child of Mr. Shep Henry, of Wilhite vicinity, accidentally shot himself last week with a shotgun, and died instantly.

To-day the police jury received scaled bids for the old court house. Mr. D. Stein’s bid of $155 for the building was accepted, granting the right to the parish to use building until the new court house is erected.

Elder J. W. Elliott, pastor of the Farmerville Baptist church, assisted by Elder J. U. H. Wharton will begin a protracted meeting in Farmerville next Sunday.

The lengthy court house ordinance crowed out much other matter this week.

Truly Union Parish is coming to the front. She is to have one steel bridge this year and others to follow. She has a prosperous bank in business, and another soon to begin. She has numbers of pushing merchants and scores of thrifty and independent farmers. She has a soil and climate adapted to most any vegetable, fruit or cereal that is grown. And last but not least she has a veritable Klondike in her vast timber resources. Last week at public action timber land in its primitive condition was sold for $15 per acre. This same land ten to twenty years ago could not have been sold for over a dollar an acre — an advance fifteen told. And that is not the only direction in which our section is making rapid strides. ‘Rah for Union.

What are Humors
