Hon. E. T. Sellers

In this issue of THE GAZETTE appears the announcement of Hon. E. T. Sellers as a candidate for the State senate, subject to the action of the democratic party. Capt. Sellers is well known to most every voter in Union Parish, and hence anything we would say of him might be considered superfluous; but we will state that his is ………………………………………..


DO YOU WANT TO YAWN? Feel cold shiverings, aching in the bones, lack of energy, headache, and great depression? These symptoms may be followed by violent headache, high fever, extreme nervousness, a condition known as malaria. Herbine cures it. Take it before the disease gets a fair hold, though it will work a cure in any stage. J. A. Hopkins, Manchester, Kan., writes: “I have used your great medicine, Herbine, for several years. There is nothing better for malaria, chills and fever, headache, billiousness, and for a blood-purifying tonic, there is nothing as good.” 50c at R. Haas.

.Several of our subscribers at Ouachita City, Marion and Cecil complain at not receiving THE GAZETTE regularly. The papers are placed in the Farmerville post office every Wednesday, and if the postmaster at Choudrant gets them off promptly they should reach Monroe Thursday evening and then if the Monroe postmaster does his duty they should go to Ouachita and Marion the next day –Friday. Thence to Cecil Saturday. we hope in the future the postal officials along this route will see that mail is promptly sent out. But what the people in the eastern part of the parish most need is a direct mail route from Farmerville via Marion to Cecil. We believe that if the matter were promptly presented to the postal authorities it could be secured. The distance from Farmerville to Marion is only 14 miles, and yet the round about route which mails have to go it takes nearly a week to get a reply to a letter written to Marion people. The people of that section are certainly entitled to better mail facilities with the parish site.

Beautiful Complexions  Are spoiled by using any kind of preparation that fills the pores of the skin. The best way to secure a clear complexion, free from sallowness, pimples, blotches, etc., is to keep the liver in good order. An occasional dose of Herbine will cleanse the bowels, regulate the liver, and so establish a clear, healthy complexion. 50c at R. Haas.

Mr. Robert Roberts, a young attorney of more than ordinary ability and the present mayor of Farmerville, will, as soon as he can wind up his business, move to Minden, La., where he will engage in the practice of his profession. Mr. Roberts is sturdy, sober and energetic. He is a man of thorough integrity and regards his profession so high that its ethics are closely guarded by him. He is scholarly and refined and a man of sound business and legal judgment, true to himself, true to his clients and his friends. Mr. Roberts has been living in Farmerville about three years having gotten his license while living here. He married about a year ago Miss Olive Goodwill, of Minden, and both Mr. And Mrs. Roberts were prominent in the social and literary circles of Farmerville and their host of friends here regret to lose them but with THE GAZETTE wish them abundant success and happiness in their new home.
