A large concourse of people gathered at Marion last Thursday, the attraction being public speaking and a barbecue. Prof. Taylor, of Ruston, and Hon. L. E. Thomas, of Shreveport, made entertaining talks on education. The hospitable people of Marion and vicinity had prepared a splendid dinner of barbecued meats and other palatable viands. With a feast for both the intellectual and the inner man, it is needless to say that everybody present spent a most enjoyable day.

Watch for a Chill. However slight at this time of year and in this climate, it is the forerunner of malaria. A disposition to yawn, and an all tired out feeling even comes before the chill. Herbine, by its prompt stimulative action on the liver, drives the malaria germs out of the system, purifies the blood, tones up the system and restores health. 50c at R. Haas.

A case of small pox developed in town Sunday morning. The patient was promptly put in quarantine and there have been no further developments. This case was contracted at Dodson’s railroad camp near Eldorado, Ark. This is the third case that has been brought in this community from that section and it has cost the city and parish about $350, and unless the authorities take steps to stamp out the disease in the vicinity of Crossett and Eldorada, it would be well for Morehouse Parish to quarantine against those places, as the disease is fast becoming a nuisance and a large expense. — Bastrop Enterprise.

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. I tried everything to relieve them which failed until I used White’s Cream Vermifuge; the first two doses brought four worms from one of them, the next two doses, twelve, one of them measuring twelve inches; the other child was only relieved of four worms. It is a most excellent medicine.” White’s Cream Vermifuge is good for children. It not only destroys worms, it helps the child to perfect growth, wards off sickness. 25c. Sold by R. Haas.


EDITOR GAZETTE:–It was a good fortune of your humble correspondent to be present at the barbecue at Marion on Thursday, the 6th inst. Marion did herself proud, as usual. On very short notice she spread a feast fit for our President and gathered together a large concourse of well behaved people, who were the fortunate recipients of a delightful but rare treat, to say nothing of the feast already referred to. As I understood it, the affair was gotten up in the interest of education, one of the grandest ambitions to which any community or town can aspire. As it was given out that our esteemed Judge Dawkins wast to deliver an address, as also Prof. Aswell, of Ruston, myself and party were the more eager to attend. But turn our necks and strain our eyes as we would, we failed to find them and were preparing ourselves for a genuine disappointment, when some kind friend informed us that Mr. Emmet Thomas was to deliver an address, a young man whom we have known as boy and man over a quarter of a century, and whose career we have especially followed since we stood on the bank of Cornie Creek and rejoiced with his noble mother in his conversion and baptism.

To whatever happy circumstances and intellectual strength Mr. Thomas may owe his grand success in life, his first fruit offerings should be laid at the feet of that devoted mother, who consecrated her life to the development of his spiritual and intellectual character, and a grand success is her reward. And his speech! My pen cannot do it justice; enough that it was report with noble thoughts and happy illustrations; that he impressed upon the people the great necessity of education, showed the peril to our institutions, to the South and to the nation that he’s in the unlettered ignorance of the younger generations.

We are justly proud of our Marion lad, and congratulate Shreveport upon her acquisition of what we so regretfully lost.

After Mr. Thomas’ speech, the people were entertained with some delightful music by the Farmerville brass band, upon the conclusion of which Prof. Hodnett introduced Prof. Taylor, of the Ruston Industrial Institute, who entertained us quite awhile with a spirited address upon education, its advantages and uses in the different paths of life. We quite forgot for the time being our disappointment over Mr. Aswell’s failure to put in an appearance.

Upon the conclusion of Mr. Taylor’s address, the people were invited to partake of a bountiful dinner prepared by the ladies of Marion and vicinity, who are noted for their hospitality and culinary skill.  MATRON.
