It will probably be two weeks or
more before the Algiers Railway and
Light Company send their first car
over the new extension to the Immi
gration station, or not until the belt
line has been completed.
Work on the belt line is progressing
rapidly, and it will be a question of a
little more than two weeks before cars
will be rinning over the line. It was
expected that the first trip to the Im
migration Station would be made last
Saturday, when the company was to
have celebrated its fifth anniversary.
But because of the press of business
the celebration was called off.

One of the most attractive adver- ity
tisements may be seen walking about
Canal street. Two gentlemen, who the
have no reason to boast of their beau

streets in short pants, loud colored

the new ivory clasp garter which is a but
product of New Orleans. G. D. Butts, tica
most interested in the enterprise, stat
ed that it is the only garter actually
manufactured in New Orleans, or in

considerable labor, and besides the tim

remains the other reason why they ad

LETTERS FROM THE PEOPLE.
Board of Levee Commissioners,
Orleans Levee District,
New Orleans, Sept. 7th, 1912. MAHOI
Rev. Thos. J. Larkin, S. M. TE
Algiers, La.'
Reverend Sir:
On last Sunday, and also the pre- JU
ceeding Sunday. I listened attentively CO
to your remarks relative to the Pa
rochial Schools, and the studies em- LE
braced in the several departments, and HE
particularly the Commercial Depart
ment; and, from my personal knowl
edge I know that you spoke with abso- The
lute certainty as regards the qualifica- Second
Itions of your Commercial Department someti
graduates; as only recently while oc- deal of
cupying a position in the General Au- will be
diting Department of one of the larg- withou
est corporations in New Orleans, I had Hon
occasion to seek the services of a
young lady stenographer who had also
a knewlodge of bookkeeping; and not Judge
having any particular person in view, votes
I circulated the news of my wants as tively
best I could in the short space of prima
time alloted me, with the result that for th
a young lady graduate of your Paroch- tion.
ial School Commercial Course who was for
at that time unknown to me, applied claims
for the position. three
The firm in question does not employ will g
office help except through competitive Judge
examination where influence is not
considered. I can truthfully say, and
or the young lady can bear me out in the It
nd fact, that I did not in the short space day ti
ar of fifteen minutes intervening between from
ni- our meeting and the time of her ex- to Ju
elt amination, mention to her that she strens
would be required to take an examina- he is
ng tion. I will say, however, that my neg- the i1
a lect to advise her was due to an over- asked
.rs sight on my part; but despite the fact in the
ra that the examination subjects compris- as to
in- ed tests in simple numbers, fractions, to Ju
ast decimals, percentage and proportion, that I
to besides the operation of the typewrit- rect,
ry. er, coupled with the fact that this himse
ess young lady was of a tender age, and prints
had to compete with five other older DEN'
ladies who had had at least two years
of actual office experience, and would
have been given the preference on ac- Frier
count of their age and experience pro- E
vided their merit was equal, your In
scholar came out first in the rating of judge
the tests of the examinations, it being twee
found that she had made only two er- IFM
rers in her arithmetic, one of which ed at
should not have been charged against denie
(, her; that one being merely a failure
on her part to carry a figure in simple will
addition, when the other and harder tion.
tests showed conclusively that she
knew better. She was gives a perfect te
mark in the operation of the typewrit- Dem
er, as well as for neatness and legibil- miSt
ity of her penmanship. The other con- woul
out testants fell far below the average The
whopassing mark, and your graduate won mail
the position purely on her merits. char
e I write you this information for what feel
it is worth to you. I had intended im- fr
by parting, same to the Superiorees of the Mah
by Convent at the time of its happening, que
s a but neglected to do so. Being a prac- trut
ft, tical office man of twelve years' ex
perience, I can appreciate the thor- need
oughness of the training this young o t
y lady received, and all things consider- and
tae ed as regards her environments at the any
time of the examination, it is my opin- mat
here ion she made an excellent showing, the]
they and should stand and be regarded as aint
testimonial to the thoroughness and any
practicability of your business course. mu
Should at any time a verbal explana
tion from me to interested parties be wit
of any value to you and your school. I
ide now advise you that I am subject to for
your call. Respecttfully, in
from C. J. Donner.
of a DON'T BELIEVE IN SIGNS. Ma
As was stated in our issue of last t
won ek, a sign now hans from the Cum-le
r berland Telephone Exchange which thi
reads the "Western Union Telegraph thi

city believe that, in accordanne with the
demands of the Algies Improvement
Auaociatlon, the Western Union estab
limhed a telegraph oBoe in Algiers, but n
whether or not this ofce is estabUlihe

with the construction of the buildings
and improvements of the United States

was the arrival Saturday afternoon of
the immigration station's boat Cor
Inthia, which reached the city at 2
