Professor J. B. Aswell and Secretary of State John Michel have no opponents.

When the Senate exercised its constitutional power of rejecting some of  the Presidents nominations, or laying them aside, the president was extremely resentful.

The trouble with you Mr. Roosevelt is that you never were and cannot be either.

It seems that his Strenuosity and cabinet are not enough interested in the South to have Secretary Wilson to attend the Boll Weevil convention. His Strenuosity is strenuous for re-election and, as was said by Vanderbilt, I’am the people. Our national government should take every precaution against a pest that is likely to destroy one of the greatest product of the greatest product of the nation. A man like Roosevelt should not be re-elected.

HARRIS’ BUSINESS COLLEGE, Jackson, Miss., will take your note for tuition, payable when you secure a position. They guarantee positions, under reasonable conditions. They cannot supply the demand for bookkeepers and stenographers.

A big snow is predicted throughout Louisiana on January 19th — Judge Blanchard will be snowed under in the primary election. — Minden Democrat.

Nay, nay, brother. Judge Blanchard is not the same kind of a candidate as Judge Watkins. Blanchard is the next governor of Louisiana. General Jastremski is all right as private secretary and if he would be good we will endeavor to have Judge Blanchard appoint him to the position.

Pain in Stomach

How would it suit the candidates for the State senate from the 25th senatorial district to join in a request that all their names be placed on the State ticket, since the primary is to come off on the same day? It would save cost oat such arrangement could be had and no law forbids it.

Mr. W. R. Grafton, of Bernice, has been appointed notary public for Union Parish.

Our courts should grant larger damages when wholesale wreckage and destruction of life is caused by the fault of railroad officials. The railroads pay off so cheap that they are reckless of human rights and even of human life. And this is the fault of our courts.
