The railroad is here and already has Farmerville awoke from her long sleep and began to down her new dress of prosperity and thrift that she is destined to wear from now on. No more can the passing stranger liken her to “Sweet Auburn, fairest village of the plains,” for the sound of the hammer and the saw; the brick mason at his work and the snort of the locomotive is proof positive that Farmerville has took her stand in the march of progress and will ever afterwards be found pushing to the front.

There is evidently something very invigorating in the sound of the puffing locomotive and the odor of the burning coal, for already have our merchants begun to step livelier than of yore and already has teh town begun to show a more business like appearance.

Let everybody get a double bustle on and we will very soon have a town that we can all justly feel proud of.

I have failed to find a surer remedy. It cures itching instantly.” R. M. SWANN, Frauklin, La. 50c per box.

The Republican press is exploiting a table which shows that a tax on hard drinks payed the entire cost of the military establishment in 1904. They can’t win any Temperance votes in that way.

“We must choose whether within our borders the basis of Government shall continue to be idealism,” says Judge Parker, or a “materialism which is the sure precursor of dissolution.”
