Y. M. C. A. TO LMAKE
1915 A VERY BUSY YEAR
With the advent of the New
Year interest in the work of the
Young Men's Christian Association
is manifest. Never before in the
history of the local organization
have the members taken such vital
concern in the carrying on of the
activities in the various depart
ments. Like similar organizations
the Bogalusa Young Men's Christ
ian Association is what the mem
bers make it and with the renewed
interest and spirit of helpfulness on
the part of the Association's con
stituancy, the work is taking a
more prominant place in the com
munity and is destined to secure

Those who are in the market for fencing are in position to
now purchase it at a big saving and as a matter of fact if you
will need fencing within the next year it will pay you to pur
chase it now and here.
Carload of the Famous
Ellwood Fence Received
To those who know fencing nothing more is required. Ellwood fencing enables the farmer to
"manufacture" his grain and live stock at the lowest possible cost, by changing pastures, rotating
crops and turning stock on the harvested fields. Its a big money making proposition for the farmer.
A carload of this wire fencing is SOME fencing. We bought in quantities so as to get a low
price---and this was bought before the "war prices" went into effect. You get all the savings if
you buy now.
To those who desire to purchase a large amount we will make
you splendid terms. Come in and let us show you how easy it
is to do the fencing now.

In an address given before a
great audience of 4,500 business and
professional men in Pittsburg, Oc
tober 24tli. President Wilson made
the following statement, "Whenev
er I think of this Association of
Christian young men, I wonder that
it has not already turned the world
upside down. I wonder not that it
has done so much, for it has done
a great deal, but that it has done
so little; and I can only conject
ure that it does not realize its own
strength. I can only imagine that
it has not yet got its pace." This
statement when applied to our lo
cal Association should awaken us to
our wonderful opportunities and our
enormous responsibility. There are
many things to be done and are
only awaiting the leadership of
some willing young man or boy.
INY NEEDi MADEI /4
HAPPY ON XMAS DAY
One of the most commendable
acts during the Christmas Holidays
was the sending of Baskets con
taining a christmas dinner to near
ly one hundred needy and deserv
ing families of the City.
The idea originiated with C. J.
Wade, President of the Association
of Commerce, who was acting as
chairman of the Christmas Tree
Celebration and was carried through
successfully under his direction.
On Christmas Eve a Committee
met at the Y. M. C. A. and began
the task of filling and distributing
Each basket contained a fine
turkey, a mince pie, potatoes, peas,
butter, oranges apples, cranberries,
celery and other good things to
make upd Christmas dinner.
Seieral of those who own auto
]iniles extended the use of their
ars for the occasion, and they were
loaded with baskets and sent to ev
ery section of the city. It was late
in the night when the last basket
That the baskets were unexpect
ed was evidenced at nearly each
house, and the recipients were pro
fure in their thanks.
Engineer On Duty
Engineer B. T. Blakslee, who has
been forced to use cruches for the
past few weeks as the result of ,an
accident while on duty, is rapidly
improving and will soon be able to
assume his duties again.
When the city jail is completed it will

The FourthP~iblic Christmas Tree
Celebration was held in the Aud
itorium of the Y. M. C. A Build
ing on the afternoon of December
25th, and despite the cold and
threatening weather, is was a huge
success; the largest crowd ever in
attendance was present this year
and nearly three thousand little
hearts were made happy by Santa
Claus as he distributed with a gen
erous hand the toys, candies and
fruits to each tot. The Y. M. C. A.
Building was crowded long before
the hour set for the distribution and
the committee in charge worked
like beavers in order that every
thing would run smoothly and there
would be no crush. The large
gymnasium was tastily decorated
and two of the largest christmas
trees that could be found were set
up in one end and beautifully dec
orated and lighted with a great num
ber of tiny colored electric bulbs.
Thousands of toys, and other
presents were banked about the
trees and on the tables where they
could be easily reached.
An efficient distributing com
mittee kept the crowd moving.
Viewed from the balcony of the
gymnasium, the scene below was
extremely touching and showed how
little it takes to make a child happy
Children from every part of the
city and the outlying district came
to see the tree; some were healthy,
some frail; some warmly wrapped,
others scantily clad but all mingled
together in good cheer eager to
reach the covetted goal, and shake
hands with Santa Claus. Some
children came alone, and others were
holding tightly to their mothers
skirts; a few of the larger boys were
quick to grasp an oportunity, and
captured better positions in the'
long line: other children, perhaps
the first time amongst the crowd
were shy and almost frightened
however as they passed out tightly
hugging their presents, their little
faces were covered with smiles and
happiness prevailed. The entire
scene, with the beautifully decorated
trees in the background, made a liv
ing picture that will be remembered
by those that Vere present, and it is
to be hoped that the interest and
generosity displayed by over three
hundred men of Bogalusa, in giving
their might toward the fund will not
be lessened during the year, but
that this good work can be continued
and make a permanent affair, one
that every one in Bogalusa can be
proud-of. The celebration was en
livened by music furnished by the
splendid Y. M. C. A. Orchestra
Post Master Situation Unchanged
The selection of he postmast er
for Bogalusa remains the same as it
has during the past several weeks.
It appears that the race has settled
itself between three candidates,
Daniel Wadsworth, a member of
the firm of Brock & Co. L T. Rich
ardson, the real estate man, and G.
H. Wilcox. Miss M. G. Pearsall,
the present incumbant tendered her
sesignation last fall but Congress
man L L. Morgan has not made the
selection as yet. The various can
didates secured petitions which have
been mailed to Mr. Morgan and the
appointment would not be a sur
prise any day.
Jno. L Davis, the genial Supt, of
Transportation of the N. O. G. N.,
accompanied by his wife have re
returned from a Christmas visit with
relatives and friends in Terre
