The crop outlook in Union Parish is more promising than it has been for several years. Early corn is practically made and a fine yield is guaranteed.

Cotton is about a month backward, but though small is fruiting well, and with favorable seasons and a late fall a satisfactory harvest can be gathered. The potato and pea crops bid fair to meet the expectations of the farmer. Altogether the crop situation is such as to cause the farmer to wear a pleasant smile on his face.

Negro Shot at Randolph

Last Saturday morning a negro, whose name we could not learn, was fatally wounded at Randolph, while resisting arrest; and we are told that he died shortly after the shooting. The facts, as we gather them, are substantially as follows:

The negro was charged with shooting at an officer in Arkansas, and had fled to Louisiana. Deputy Sheriff J. M. Murphy and Mr. Geo Ramsey were attempting to arrest him, when the negro made an effort to use a shotgun which he had with him. Mr. Murphy leveled his pistol on the negro and ordered him to drop the gun. The darky failed to obey, and Mr. Murphy fired twice, the first shot breaking the negro’s shoulder and the second hitting him above the heart. Mr. Ramsey also shot once, his ball striking the negro in the abdomen.

A Worm Killer. J. A. J. Montgomery, Puxico, Wayne Co., MO., writes: “I have little twin girls, who have been bothered with worms all their lives.

Mr. A. M. Edwards, of ward three, was in Farmerville Tuesday. He informed us that a burglar broke into Mr. J. A. Peek’s store at Ouachita Sunday night, blew his safe open and secured all the money there was in it. Fortunately Mr. Peek had only about $30 in the safe, and hence the robber did not make a rich haul. A suspicious character was seen about Ouachita a few days before the robbery, and as he was missing the next morning, it is supposed he did the work.
