New Fire Alarm System.
The town council recently placed
an order for a new fire alarm sys
tem, which they hope to have in
operation some time next month.
The system consists of a large steel
alloy bell, weighing 2,000 pounds,
and being 48 inches in diameter,
to be placed in the tower of the
court house, and to be struck by
an electric striker, also placed in
the court house tower.
The striker will be operated
from the Water & Light Plant and
will strike the bell any given num
ber to designate the district in
which the fire is.
A large clock has been bought
which will be installed at the plant
which will automatically strike
I~rsre bell twice a day, at six a.
m. and six p. m. This to test out
the system twice a day.
The clock will be regulated
day with Western Union
utime, and the striking of the bell
at six o'clock will give the town
accurate time twice a day.
Alarms will have to be telephon
ed to the plant as usual. T'he
town will be re-districted, and the
new districts will be published for
the information of the public. It
is proposed to create smaller and

"Are you a Mason?"
John Barrymore could not be more
ideally cast than in the stellar role of
the film production of the sensationally
successful farce, "Are you a Mason?"'
prowluced by the Famous Players and
the current Paramount release at ~4 I
Victor Theatre, Meaday Odct. '.
Twos.cape-grace,, father-in-law and
sott-ln-ra*, have both hit upon the de
vice of pretending to be Free Masons so
as to be able to plead lodge meetings as
an excuse for spending their evenings
away from home. There is genuine
fun in the fund; mental relationship of
these two mock Masons, each of whom
fears detection by the other, and the
domestic and comic complications by
their indiscritninate and inartistic lyingl
provide a fund of humor rarely evidenc
ed in stage or screen comedies.
John Barrymore, as the younger bogus
Moson, makes the most of the mauy
hunmorous incidents in his own wonder
ful style of comic portrayal, and with a 1
full appreciation of the farcical possibi
lities of the plot. Others in the splen
did cast include Ida Waterman. Charles 4
Dickson and Helen Freeman.
The construction of the film version
of this celebrated stage success admits i
of a number of comic interpolations of
episode and character impossible in the
presentation of the original play because
of the limitations of the oral drama.
These additional scenes and Personages
enhance the comic value of the offering
and provide Mr. Barrvmore with more
material for the side-splitting depiction
of the young Mason than was contained I
in the original farce.
This hilarity-compelling feature will (
be at the Victor Theatre (ct .5 together
with a Paramount Travel picture.

ings .,f the entnolmogists obtained
front experimntts. The faIcts fromn
these exleriunt nits Ihow that o(n,
of' tie most effecti',e uaeauns orf Iboll
wee"'il control is the early destruc
tion of the green cotton .talkl..
This early destruictim of the :row
ing stalks accompnllishes three things
(1) D)cstructin ,f all uitmature
weevils in ioll :anad squares.
(2) Destrtrctiou of all food suJip
plies for adnult wvecv il, cl pcilling
all these weevil to do without food
until cold weather forces thcu int:o
hibernation. Th;is lakes the a,!dult
weevil go into winter ua:rters weak
from starvation and in bad aondi
tion to stand the winter.
(3) Destruction of all breeding
places.
Thus early stalk destruction diu
plicates in large measure the effects'
of freezing temperatures.
A conservative increase in cotton
.creage over most of Louisiana is
advisable under present conditions
To make the cottotq planted a pro
fitable crop, the best cultural me
thods must be adopted and all
means of controling weevil damage
must be used faithfully and per.
sistently. Early destruction of
the green and growing stalks is
the first step.
Where the farmers have the
necessary tools, the best way to
hatdle the stalks is to chop them
up Gnely with a stalk cutter or disc
harties. Then plow under as deep
as poqslle, thtroughly covering
all f fsbo.t ed up .stalks If
pos-ibJe, plant some winter cover
crop on the land, some of the
clovers being the best. This land
will then be in splendid condition
for next year's corn crop.
The next best way is to cut the
stalks, pile and burn them as soon
as leaves, stems and squares will
make a quick blaze. Don't wait:
until all the stalk is dry or the wee- r
vil will all hatch and most of the
labor will be in vain.
The effort of each individual
farmer in destroying his stalks
will be productive of some good. l
Community cooperative effort is c
what is required to meet this situa- L
tion in the best possible way. If t
every community in the cotton a
section of the State would agree I
to destroy all cotton stalks by Nov v
1st at the latest and then faithful- t
ly carry out the agreement it would 0
be worth thousands of dollars to
the cotton farmers themselves in
1916. c

Abbeville Paper Troubles.
The esteemed Franklin Watch

our taking over the Vermilion
News, tells it in this way:
"The Abbeville Progress has
placed its affectionate arms around
the Vermilion News by purchase
from Mr. Scanland, the former
proprietor. This leaves Abbeville
with two, Instead of three news
papers, and If they were merged
into one, there may be a little
