The Semi-Weekly Natchitoches Times (Natchitoches, Louisiana) 23 January 1867

The Jimplecute-- What is the meaning of the word Jimplecute? We have often been asked this question and the only answer we could give, is, that it is the name of a well edited Jounral, published at Jefferson, Texas, the last number of which, received here contains quite a gem of poetry intitled "the voice of the seabreeze" by Miss Lucy C. Craft.-- Will the editor be good enough to enlighten us on the subject? Is the term of purely local origin -- Some cant term peculiarly Texan-- or is it the name of a plant-- a race-- or dug out from some dead language-- or like the word skedadle, suddenly sprung into existence, no man knows exactly how or where.
