The registration books closed Monday with a total of 945. This is not a good showing for a parish that could have a voting strength of nearly 3000; and yet the kickers against the administration of affairs are usually found in that class of people who neglect not only a right but the duty of having a “say-so”. And Lincoln Parish makes no better show than Union. Is it possible that the citizens of this section have lost faith in the sovereignty of the people?

It was truly a fine porcine specimen and shows what can be done in hog raising int his section. — Ruston Leader.

COME! Exercises for the close of the third quarter will be held at the school house, Friday afternoon, March 11, beginning promptly at 1:30 o’clock. Everyone is invited. Respectfully, J. B. Hix.

Reminders. Pupils should start to school at the ringing of the first bell in the morning and at noon. Tardiness is injurious to the school, and gives teachers much trouble. As one who has the welfare of your children at heart, I must request that written excuses be sent by parents whenever children are tardy or absent or wish to be excused from school. All good schools demand it. You owe it to the teachers. It will save us the trouble of coming to your house every time one of your children is tardy. It will cause pupils to know that both parent and teacher are looking after them. It will take very little of your time. Again, we can never hope to build up a good school until pupils study more at home. It the school ever draws children from the surrounding country, the children of the town must do something. I hope no one will think that I am dictating what you should do with your children at home. But every one knows that children who do not study at home can not do well at school. Let every parent join us in helping to make the school a success.

THE GAZETTE, one dollar a year in advance.
