Quit looking as though you had the toothache or colic and brace up. Corn is plentiful, fall is coming, business will soon be rushing, locomotives will soon be whistling, and hammers and saws will be singing songs to gladden your soul. Take a long breath of hope, swell up with ambition, increase your supply of faith, bite off a big hunk of prosperity, and get well.

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.

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.

What is the matter with politics in Union? Nothing is more quiet while in other parishes the thing is “boiling hot.” Is it that we have no candidates or are they all on the still hunt. The gubernatorial campaign is growing more lively all the while but it is far too early to say what the final result will be. There are some good men in the race, but they have not told us why they are better fixed than the other fellow. Their platforms, so far, have reduced the issue to the sole question, “I want it.” Good enough gentlemen, if you have anything to back it. Let  us, hear some cogent reasons why you are the man for the place.
