DESTROYING A CIVIC CENTER.
The closing of the head of Canal Street by the Dock Board with un
sightly steel sheds is a matter of grave importance that should be taken
up at once very seriously by commercial bodies, civic organizations and the
citisens on both sides of the river.
On Tuesday of last week Mr. Peter S. Lawton and Dr. C. V. Kraft
started a movement when they appeared before the Commission Council to
enter a protest from the Algiers standpoint against the erection of this
shed, for the reason that it would not leave sufficient ferry space for the
..present and future accommodation of transportation across the river; that
It would destroy the only available open space where visitors might view
the Mississippi River from the business section of the city where most all
visitors come. It was pointed out that this large open space has always
bee a civic center for mass meetings, celebrations, etc. It marked the land
lag place of the king of the Carnival. The erection of an unsightly steel
"shed at this point will destroy one of the most popular and valuable neutral
grounds in the central part of the city. The closing of this big open space
Is to be considered mach more seriously than if the Dock Board attempted
to build a steel shed or some other warehouse in the center of Lee Circle,
Jacks or Lafayette Square or any other central neutral grounds.
Surely, our Dock Board has not lost its sense of civic pride in its
great efforts to build sheds for the accommodation of a large corporation.
It is necessary that other civic bodies come to the front at once to
make every effort to stop the destruction of so valuable a piece of ground.
SThET RAILWAYS HERE AND OTHER PLACEBS.
Durnlag the past few years The Herald has said some hard things
amst the service and equipment of the New Orleans Isilways Co., and
e-peially were we very severe in our criticism of the Louisiana Ave. car
Ute, but since visiting some of our Eastern Cities and paying especial at
batot to the price of fares, equipment and conduct of the men on the
irs.we have come to the conclusion that New Orleans with its eight cent
.r fare and free transfers is away ahead of many of our Eastern cities
n giving our citisems service.
Ia New York City where the fare is still five cents, there is posted in
sll abway ears the announesment that the present fare of five cents is
saJIsst to moet the Iuterest on the bonds, notwithstanding the fact
tre mbways are owned by he city and operated in partnership with
--kpeatlsa. The burface cars are dirty and slow and apparently oper
iiwrh the intettio of disouragling their use.
kr Claie ati the fare is eight and one-alf ceats. The cars are
1 sps, sand the srviee during rush hours is net to w joke.
s Buffaleo, Philadelphia, Louisville. Memphis, and other large cities.,
Sbhad bes greatly advanced and there is no evidence of new roll
steek. The ears are pictures of previous hard service.
f eass of Washingta, are much better than ia say of the other
1 the o 1th. Here the ear fare is seven and one-half cents, that is
l yes buy their tkeas which are sold, four for thirty cents.

day is fast saining in favor over the
old method of painting, Mr. H. L.
Boyle, manager of the Auto Painting
and Enameling Co., pioneers in this
business in New Orleans, yes:
"Automobile owners are awaken
ng to the advantage of baking enam
el on faded fenders and hoods. The
hot summer months are especially
severe on the surfaces of these parts
of the ars when the paint Is simply
applied, and in a short time the lustre
is entirely gone, but'if the enameling
is baked on it it wIII hold its lustre
five times as long. I am pleased to
pote that there is an increasing de
mand on the part of New Orlesas
auto owners for eummelin baked
fenders and hoods."
The Autp Painting and Enameling
Co., Messrs Boyle & Cowgill, Props.,
is located at )4 Julla street. They
are prepared to turn out Jobs prompt.

.with all work. They paint with pride
to the fact that fifty per cent of the
dealers and paint shop proprietors
are their customers, and they only
ask that you "consult your dealer or

It is not only the murderer who
comes back. drawn irresistibly to the
scene of his offense against the human
law. Everyone who has done wrong,
everyone who has been unfortunate,
everyone who has suffered, even, re
turns some day to the place where the
event occurred which marked a black
bar in the spectroscope of his life. It
was so with Arthur Kane.
Five years before he had stood in
the same spot, at the same time of
day, on just such an evening, outside
Evelyn's house, at the foot of her
garden. Then he had been poor; now
he was wealthier than he had ever
expected to be; but then he had been
happy, and now, of all men, he was
the most miserable.
It was summer then and it was sum
mer now; the same rose bushes were
blooming, the same moon was rising
over the house-tops; nothing had -
changed except his heart.
Five years before Kane had been an
underpaid clerk in the Fourth Na
tlonal bank, seven blocks away, in the
heart of the business section. And
Evelyn had been a stenographer in the
same town. She lived with her
widowed mother and her little brother
Benny. Arthur had always known
Evelyn, but their engagement had
c6me about quite suddenly and simply.
He had discovered unsuspected depths
of tenderness in her nature when his
mother died. She had cared for her
all through her lingering Illness. The
night before she breathed her last she
said to Arthur:
"I want you to marry Evelyn."
The thought had not occurred to
him. He had not known that Evelyn
loved him. The day after the funeral
he asked Evelyn to marry him. And
when she laid her head upon his shoul
der and began to cry softly, from
sheer happiness, Kane suddenly dis
covered the world of love in his own
"I thought you loved Marston," he
"I never cared for Martson," she an
swered, looking at him with a wonder
ful light In her eyes.
Then came the fatal evening when
Kane, approaching Evelyn's house
later than usual, after the shades were
drawn. stopped suddenly as he saw
Marston's face upon the blind, and
Evelyn's. They drew near to each
other and their lips met. Then the
shadows danced away and the lamp
light illuminated the blind again.
Kane went home ana wrote a bier
letter to Evelyn, explaining that be
had unexpectedly discovered proof ot
her faithlessness, and took the train
west next morning. In five years he
had made a comfortable fortune. Now
be had come back. -
As be stood by the gate of Evelyn's
home a tall bea suddenly Came in from
the street, saw him, stopped short,
and accosted him.
"Mr. daner' he exelaimed.
Kane turned. "Why. Benmr" be

"Yes, Mr. ra. It was aN awful

She just cried and cried for days, but
she wouldn't let antyone write and tell
you. br It was all my halt."
Kane's bet almet draned him
alanst his wl lato the little parlor.
Nothi was changed-elly his heart.
Benny put out the s and stoead tho
