Anti-Saloon League Convention in
Spring.
The Anti-Saloon League will tio
hold its convention in the spring, A,
date and place to be announced cie
later. Rev. J. A. Christain, is
State Superintendent, writes us str
as follows: in
I have traveled pretty well
over this State, and have talked "j
to leaders of all churches and r
parties, and I feel sure that we
are going to be able to get to- a
gether solidly. Our cause insist- H(
ently demands this, and I think is
the friends will be heroic enough iq
to put the cause above all else.
We have not been able to mus- -i
ter into real service more than is
one hundred in five hundred who "f
are sentimentally on our side. in
By the phrase "muster into ser- br
vice" I don't mean enrollment as "*
subscribers to league work; I re
mean that approximately 400 peo- "'
ple out of every 500 -who are in lo
fovor of no liquor in this State in
are doing next to nothing any- U
where, in anyway, to advance
the cause. My hope is that we hi
may be able to have a State Con- ki
vention in the spring, with every a
part of the State and every mor- u,
al and social-welfare organization fe
represented. The league has a hi
program to submit to the temper- bi
ance people of this State, and it d4
is a stiff, practical program. A
Business men will not support
any other sort. There are men
and women in Louisiana who ol
have the money, and they are
willing for us to use some of it
in thiq fight when they are con- ci
vincea that we know the lay of
the land, and mean to do some
thing. n
Neither is it a question of doing
,everything all at once. The busi
Bess people of this State who e
support us are well aware' that h
this victory will pot come right h
away. When they subscribe t
they do not demand that we win d
in a week, and never ask them
for another cent f But `they do r
want a clear cut program, a defi
nite plan of action. They expect t
us to show them a road that looks
I f ng somewhere.
The ml" of the league are r
unimpeachable. Its organization t
and plan of advance are modeled
upon the best known rules of
business. It is the finest fight
ing machine ever turned loose on
the liquor traffic. It has knock-i
ed 'em to pieces in many quar
ters, and scared 'em to death
everywhere. It can be made a
blessing to this State if we care
to do it. And whether we care
to step or go on in a big way,
ought to be decided at the Spring
Convention.
Think it over, talk it over with
your neighbor, and watch for
the date and place.
J. A. CaRISTIAN,
Superintendent.
There is little chance for fail
ure in the livestock business in
the South if the feeds are pro
duced on the farm. Don't get
the livestock before the feeds
have been grown. It is more
profitable to sell feeds than to
buy them at present prices.--The
Progressive Farmer.
The "Grand Daddy" clause,
for the registration of voters un
der section 5 of article 197 of the
State Constitution, is now open,
and will remain open until 6 p.
m. August 31, 1913. This is a
special provision by a joint reso
lution of the Legislature of 1912,
known as Act No. 24.

The New Baptist Bible.
First copies of the revised edi- 1
tion of the Bible published by the not
American Baptist Publication So- mo
ciety are out. The new edition the
is a radical departure in its con- the
struction from the language used eve
in the King James version. Sa
In the new Bible the names the
"Adam and Eve" do not appear. If
Their place is taken by the words mi:
"man" and "woman," which is the
a direct translation of the old WE
Hebrew names. The word "hell" of
is eliminated, "underworld" be- en
iqg inserted in its places. tyl
Other great changes are made. fai
The story of Jonah and the whale a!
is changed so that the words mi
"great fish"-as being a nearer al
interpretation of 'the ancient He- th:
brew - take the place of "whale." wl
"Jehovah thy God," "Carved" ca
replaces "graven, " and the word ai
"immersed" in parenthesis fol- wl
lows the word baptize in every wi
instance. In the newedition the fo:
Lord's Prayer becomes: co
"Our Father who art in heaven, te:
hallowed be thy name. Thy tel
kingdom come. Thy will be done, ta
as in Heaven so on earth. Give ea
us this day our daily bread. And w4
forgive us our debt, as we also th
have forgiven our debtors. And th
bring us not into temptation, but N,
deliver us from the evil one.
Amen." "
Support Your Home Newspaper.
A good local newspaper is one f
of the surest signs of a progres- m,
sive community and it is to every do
farmer's interest to do what he tr
can to make his parish paper a th
good paper. It tells him things o
which be should know and which R
no other paper can tell him. Of- or
ten it will be the best advertising
medium he can use, and if the T
editor realizes that the farmers S
In his territory are trying to help
him make a good paper, he is
more than willing on his part to t
1do all he can to advance the in- e
Sterest of the-rural sections. We d
realize that too many local papers a
-give practically all their atten
t tion to the town and neglect the
B country districts, but we wonder
sometimes if this is not almost as
e much the farmers' fault as it is ,
a the paper's. Get in touch with
your local paper. Send in to it °
any item of news you tnay have.
Let the editor know about any
"good farming that is being done
in your neighborhood. Help him I
to see that the prosperity of a
h town is founded upon the pros
a perity of the farming country
e about it. In this way you can
' help him make a better paper
F, and enable him to be of more
g service to you and to the com
munity. -Progressive Farmer.

Newspaper Errors. B
The editor of an exchange does
not want anyone to send him any in P
more copies of his paper in which ke,
they have found mistakes: If botl
they find a perfect copy, how- nev
ever, he offers a big price for it. or c
Same with us, says the editor of be
the Crystal Falls (Mich.) Drill. lain
If the fool critic who hunts for saf
mistakes in the papers would find tan,
them all he would be kept busy. You
We will be pleased to buy copies u
of any paper which can be proven
entirely free from errors, either a
typography or in statement of w
fact. We will be pleased to find whi
a merchant who never made a os
mistake in putting up an order, ma
a lawyer who never lost a case pa
through his own errors, a doctor
who never wrongly diagnosed a d
case, a druggist who never made
a mistake, a post office official Thi
who never put mail into the
wrong box, a woman who never
forgot to put in the salt while
cooking, or to put the tea in the I
teapot before putting in the wa- Juc
ter. Bring on some of your mis
takeless paragons who find it so for
easy to criticise the papers and t
we'R give them the chance of
their lives to find out whether the
they are really human. - Monroe as

His Stomach Troubles Over. toj
Mr. Dyspeptic, would you not like to
feel that your stomach troubles were
over, that you could eat any kind of
food you desired without injury? That -
may seem so unlikely to you that you
do not even hope for an ending of your 13'
trouble, but permit us to assare yon
that it is not altogeteer impossible. If
others can be cured permanently, and
thousands have been, why not you? J. of
R. Barker, of Battle Creek, Mich., is C,
one of them. He says, "I was troubl- a
ed with heortburn, sndigestion, and liv- fa
er complaint until I used Chamberlain's th
' Tablets, then my trouble was over." tb
