Capt. E. T. Sellers Dead

Through the Shreveport Times we learn of the death of Capt. E. T. Sellers which occurred last Thursday at Minden where he was attending a meeting of the Farmers Institute. Capt. Sellers was an old and honored citizen of Union Parish, having lived at Walnut Lane for the most of his life but at the time of his death he was a resident of Ruston, where he had recently moved. His death was quite a shock to this family and friends, as he was in the best of health when he left home a few days before.


Your corporation tax is now due and must be paid withing the next thirty days. Please call at my office and settle. J. K. ATKINSON, Marshal.

The authorities of the town of Monroe recently signed a contract with an electrical railway company to put in a street railway in that town. The belt is to be six and one half miles long and is to be finished inside of six months.

We rejoice in the steps Monroe is taking lately toward advancement and can see no reason why, with the proper effort, she cannot be to this section what Shreveport is to West Louisiana.

THE GAZETTE, one dollar a year in advance.
