We wish to call to the attention of the Police Jury the very filthy condition of the court house yard. The yard should be cleaned off and the fence replace, as the cattle of the town have contracted teh habit of sleeping around the building. A nice clean public square is of as much importance as a public building and if the public square of Farmerville was attended to it would help the appearance of the new courthouse no little.

The ladies of Ruston have set a very worthy example in this respect. When the new court house was finished at that place they took upon themselves the task of beautifying the grounds, and by planting grass, shrubbery and flowers they have succeeded in making quite a beautiful spot out of a square which, on account of its natural surroundings is not near so pretty as ours.

We have a beautiful courthouse now and why not go a step further and have a beautiful square also, as in its present condition it reminds one of a man dressed in a forty dollar suit of cloths with a ragged pair of shoes.

The incident speaks quite highly of Mr. Grifford’s medicines — Elkader, Iowa, Argus.

The ladies of the society of Willing Workers are going to conduct a rummage sale at the old Burch residence opposite the Donley hotel, Saturday afternoon, Aug. 27. If any one has articles of clothing, furniture, house decorations, or dining room and kitchen ware that have any possible service in them, the Willing Workers ask that they be donated to this sale. Goods may be sent to the Burch residence Thursday and Friday afternoon between the hours of three and six, or if members of the society are notified, they will send for them.

The venture is calculated to work as a charitable institution in two ways; first, it will bring in a fund to the church, and it will also make articles that are now useless useful to others who may need them. Goods are to be sold at wonderfully low prices, and one may buy for five or ten cents the majority of articles on sale. This will be a rare opportunity for colored people to buy good things, which, at ordinary prices, are beyond their means.
