The Farmerville & Southern railroad is a certainty notwithstanding the fact that work has been slow. The secretary of labor and the high prices demanded by contractors for removing dirt has caused delay, but new forces are constantly arriving and the rapidity of work over what has been is being evidenced daily. The people need not fear, for the road will be built within the time that the contract stipulates.

We have opened up a complete line of family groceries and solicit a part of the public patronage. Our prices are in line with those who do a legitimate business. Our motto is to live and let live. Call and be convinced. The place is next door to the post office.  UNION GROCERY CO.

Mr. D. E. Laupheimer, well and popularly known by the people of Farmerville and Union Parish, will open up a general mercantile business in Farmerville as soon as goods which are ordered can arrive. “Dave”, as he is familiarly known by his host of friends, is a most capable and practical businessman, a gentleman by nature as well as training and will no doubt succeed in his undertaking.

I have turned over my collections to J. C. Maroney, and he is fully authorized to make such settlements as he sees fit.

Cotton being a good price this year, we would urge all our customers to meet their obligations promptly. J. D. BAUGHMAN.

Hon. W. P. Chandler authorizes THE GAZETTE to announce his name as a candidate for re-election to the house of representatives of the State legislature. Mr. Chandler has long been identified with the people of Union Parish and when he first ran for the position he led his ticket and defeated all competitors. Having served four years in this capacity Mr. Chandler has gathered useful experience by his previous service and might be said to be better fitted now for the position to which he aspires than he was four years ago. He is a reading thinking man and knows what legislation is beneficial to the people and that which is antagonistic to their interests. Mr. Chandler is faithful, earnest and competent  and is too well known to the people of Union Parish to need any commendation from THE GAZETTE yet we commend him heartily to the voters of Union Parish as able, worthy and honest.

Mr. Jacob Haas left last week to accept a position in Coushatta. THE GAZETTE failed to make mention of Mr. Haas’ departure last week and regrets the oversight as Jake is an especially popular young man in the community and his many friends wish to know where he is as well as being interested in his success. The Farmerville Brass band will also miss Jake as he is a member of the organization. THE GAZETTE and Jake’s many friends wish him success in his new field of labor.

21 Years of Dyspeptic. R. H. Foster, 319 S. 2d St., Salt Lake City, writes: “I have been bothered with dyspepsia or indigestion for 21 years; tried many doctors without relief; recently I got a bottle of Herbine.

Devoured by Worms. Children often cry, not form pain, but from hunger, although fed abundantly. The entire trouble arises from sanitation, their food is not assimilated, but devoured by worms. A few doses of White’s Cream Vermifuge will cause them to cease crying and begin to thrive at once, very much to the surprise and joy of the mother. 25c at R. Haas.
