Violent Attack of Diarrhea Cured by Chamberlain’s Colic, Cholera and Diarrhea Remedy and Perhaps a Life Saved.

There is a joke told on the inhabitants of one of our North Louisiana parishes to the effect that on the day that the first railroad was completed into their parish seat the citizens of the town gave a big barbecue and blow-out. Now the knowledge that the steam cars were going to run into their parish seat was sufficient inducement to have brought the inhabitants all in for a radius of fifty miles, but when it became circulated that there was going to be a barbecue they just flocked in, and among the horde there were many who had never smelt the invigorating odor of burning stone coal, much less having seen a train. Long before the time arrived for the train to come in they lined up on each side of the track as thick as black birds. When the train arrived they stood with mouths wide open admiring the grand thing when suddenly the engineer called out: “Look out, I am going to turn around, ” and such a stampede was never seen before, they fell over each other getting out of the way. Their idea of “turning around” must have been like they would turn a wagon around in the corn field.
