Airships At Altus.
Yesterday the aviation meet-
ing was started at Altus. A com-
pany is putting on the show and
Altus is paying the freight. As
an inducement to the people to
go, the Orient ran yesterday two
passenger cars attached to their
regular freight train, No. 19,
which is due here at 4:15 a. m.,
but which was held an hour, re-
turning at night at 10:30, for the
accommodation of all who want-
ed to go. The fare for-the round
trip is $1.60, which is right at
one and a third fare for the trip.
The train yvas held this morning,
Friday, and will be held tomor-
row morning, Saturday, the same
way and the fares will be the
same, so agent Richmond in-
Bill Hammick, W. M. Morrison

Holden called at the Leader office
and we were pleased to chat with
him for a few minutes.

HOW CAN WE BOOST
It is a worthy desire of any citizen of a town to build up his own city. The question
is, how to do it in the best way. Two ways will present themselves to the thinking mind,
first of which is: Create THE BEST MARKET FOR FARM PRODUCTS OF ALL KINDS.
Second, SELL THE MERCHANDISE FOR LESS Money than our competitive towns,
thereby attracting and drawing trade from a greater distance.
The R. W. Hulett Co. has taken the lead in both of the above propositions. Since the
very start they have been in the cotton market, and they have done their part to make
Sentinel the best cotton market in the country. We remember to have brought to Sentinel
at different times enough cotton to fill our streets. This in competition with our neighbor-
ing towns, having outoid them all. Our many friends remember this, and,' although we
only got a share of the many dollars paid out, the town, as a whole got the benefit.
As has been mentioned before, we are in the produce business, and in to stay. And
we are making the price attractive to sellers, who come to Sentinel expecting best prices,
by offering the highest cash prices for chickens, eggs. etc. Since we have started this
campaign, we have had the pleasure of doing business with lots of new customers people
who never traded at Sentinel before.
As to the second proposition, Sentinel is full of live merchants: Several new ones
have joined in the last six months. They are all continually offering bargains to the buy-
ing public. But "competition is the life of trade," and R W. Hulett & Cj. will take the
lead in the future, (as in the past) for the best that can be done for their patrons.
Our piano contest is a marked success. Many contestants are lined up and. making
a strong fight.
Our store is full of nice, clean merchandise and will we ask is a chance to show our
goods, then we will convince you that Hulett's is a good place to trade.
Remember, "HULETT HAS IT." "The Store of

Natchez, Miss., April 27.—The
long dreaded break in the main
line Mississippi.river levees, along
the west bank in upper Louisiana,
came at an early hour Sunday
morning when the Lake St. John
levee, twelve miles north of
Ferriday, La., went out, turning
the flood waters loose upon the
fine farming lands and villages
of lower Tensas, practically all
of Concordia and parts of Cata-
houla and Franklin parishes. The
water will flow back into the Miss-
issippi through Black and Red
Approximately 20,000 persons
will be driven from their homes
as a result of this crevasse,
which will flood a territory em-
bracing about 900 square miles.
Residents of the affected terri-
tory had ample warning that a
break was imminent and it is not
believed there has been any 1

had been moved to the hills on
the Mississippi side of the water
Six river steamers and a score
or more motor boats went to the
crevasse from Natchez and Nicks-

Milked The Cows.
There was a certain man went
out to the farm of W. W. Raney
a few days ago and put on a stunt
at milking cows that was laugh-
able to Mrs. Raney, so she re-
ports. The hardware man took a
certain crqam separator man
along. Both men took a sweat
at milking the heifer. Both were
raised on a farm, but they seem
to have lost the art of "juicing
the heifer," as the boys say, for
Mrs. Raney milked three cows be-
fore they could get the "strip-
