Dr. Knapp and His Work.
Montgomery, La., Oct. 26, 1912.
Editor Colfax Chronicle:
Knowing you to be a progressive man
and in full sympathy with our farmers
and all laboring men, I inclose for pub
lication the suggested program for Dr.
Knapp's Agricultural Day, and sincere
ly hope that the time is near at hand
when all will know and see the results
of his great work and sympathy for
the southern farmer. It is largely
through his influence that our southern
towns and villages have been taught to
respect the farm boy, and our young
woqsen have begun to understand that
the real man of merit is clothed usual
ly in jeans and overalls. They do not
now speak so much of his brown neck
and working attire with the giggle of a
few yearq ago, but want to know that
he has a little home and the practical
knowledge and common sense to main
tain it with his strong arm and active
brain, as well as the grit and energy
to make his home beautiful and comfort
Dr. Knapp also believed and taught
that a girl was to have a literary edu
eation, but that she should know how
to make a suit of clothes and cook a
decent meal when she left the school
reom, and also have a knowledge of
other domestic science.
Yes, Bro. Goodwyn, I am proud of
the work done in Grant perish, and that
I have been one of the weak arms help
ing this progressive movement, which
is destined to continue. We cannot
help those who think they know all
they need to know, and will not try
new andimproved methods. Dr. Knapp
and his word is to teach our boys and
girls that the farmer is the happiest
and most independent citizen of our
nation, and that he deserves all the
help sad encouragement that can be
given him, because upon his shoulders
rests the safety and security of our
B. E. ,WOODe.

Everybody is Cordially Invited to the
Big Holiday Opening
Alexandria's Most Attractive Commercial Event
An occasion that will delight men and women, boys 'and girls, and babies in all
S walks of life, is being announced all through this section. It is the
most important pre-holiday event ever scheduled
All Day SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 23rd
Be lnning at & o'clock and lasting through the day, the Variety Store's Holiday Opening will
in reality be a "fair." The products of the best foreign and domestic factories-thousands of
toys of every description-Fire Works, Glasware Chinaware-in brief, everything that goes to
make up a complete Holiday Stock, will be on exhibition in most artistic displays.
MUSIC BY TUE BRASS BAND BRING THE CHILDREN ALONG
In keeping with the spirit that pervades the store, It will indeed be a glorious occa~ion for the young
th City of Alexandria's Band wil reader a sters-the chape will enthusiastically get their eyes

A FEW WORDS REGARDING THE PRICES
Ever since last Christmas The Variety Store begun its campaign to make the holiday season of
1912 its baner event. First, it arranged to go into its prepent handsome quarters. Then, it
began buying in huge quantities direct from factoris, Mr. Jackson personally making this east
ern trip in the summer. Therefore, every preparation has been made to treat you to lower
prices than you are accustomed to-and the stock involves complete lines from 5c up. Come to
the Fmee Holiday Opening on the 23rd to confirm this-too much space would be required to
mention items and prices.
SHREWD IDEALERS WILL BUY FROM US TOO
Now is the Anal and best opportunity for dealers to come and make their purchases. They an
see exactly what they are buying-sad compare our prices with those of any other jobber. As
we have but a limited amount of stock for dealers, reerving the vast bulk for our retail cuto
mars, they will have to act quickly.

School Funads from Special Taxes.
We are under obligations to Assessor
E. S. Murrell for the following state
ment of the amount of taxes that will
be realized in the various school dis
tricts of Grant parish for 1912, which
have the special five mill tax they have
voted in their various districts in aid
of schools, as follows:
Prospect, district 3 ............... $ 198 22
Clear Creek, district 5......... 497 24
Oak Grove, district 7........... 190 35
Big Creek, district 8........... 107 28
Pollock, district 9 .................. 1,604 00
Friendship, district 10......... 447 72
Dry Prong district 11............ 789 54
Black Creek, district 12......... 682 46
Liberty Chapel, district 13..... 398 34

Twinges of rheumatism, backache,
stiff joints, and shooting'pains all show
your kidneys are not working right.
Urinary irregularities, loss of sleep,
nervousness, weak back and sore kid
neys tell the need of a good reliable
kidney medicine. Foley Kidney Pills
are tonic, strengthening and restora
tive. They build up the kidneys and
regulate their action. They will give
you quick relief and contain no habit
forming drugs. Safe and always sure.

Aphis or "Plant Lice" on Turnips.
Am enclosing under separate cover a
bunch of turnip tops covered with in
sects. Our winter vegetables are very
much injured this season by the preva
lence of this pest. How can they be
R. J. W. K., Marthaville, La.
Insects on those turnip tops are the
common cabbage aphis, or louse, com
monly called "plant lice." Their food
being obtained by burying their long,
thread-like beaks in the foliage of the
plants and sucking the juices therefrom;
they must be combatted by an insecti
cide that, by filling up the breathing
pores, will destroy them. One-half
pound of whale oil soap, or ccmmon
laundry soap boiled in a gallon of water,
to which is added while hot two gallons
of kerosene oil, the mass to be churned
back and forth in a spring pump until
complete emulsion is obtained, after
which ten parts of water added to each
gallon of the emulsion, will constitute
an effective spray. Apply to .the fo
liage with a spray pump and the lice
will be destroyed.
These lice and their eggs 'are not kill
ed by the cold of our moderate winters,
hence they should be thoroughly spray
ed now, and all straggling plants and
other refuge should.be destroyed in or
der to prevent continuous breeding of
these pests.-Country Review.
Porto Rico's New Wonder.
From far away Porto Rico come re
ports of a wonderful new discovery
that is believed will vastly benefit the
people. Ramon T. Marchan, of Barce
loneta, writes "Dr. King's New Dis
covery is doing splendid work here. It
cured me about five times of terrible
coughs and colds, also my brother of a
severe cold in his chest and more than
20 others, who used it on my advice.
We hope this great medicine will yet
be sold in every drug store in Porto
Rico." For throat and lung troubles it
has no equal. A trial will convince
you of its merit. 50c and $1.00. Trial

The True Gtlekm
The true gentleman is the man whose
conduct proceeds from good will and a
acute sense of propriety, and whose
self-control is equal to all emergencies;
who does not make the poor man con
scious of his poverty, the obscure man
of his obscurity, or any man of his in
feriority or deformity) who is himsell
humbled if necessity compels him
humble another; who does not flta >
wealth, cringe before power, or boast F
of his own possessions or achievements; )
who speaks with frankness, but alwayf
with sincerity and sympathy, and whose
deeds follow his words; who thinks of
the rights and feelings of others rather
than of his own; who appears well it
any company, and who is at home wher
he seems to be abroad-a man with
whom honor is sacred and viMte safe.
