The following oapler was read by

School convention held last week in

The question is often asked of the

When we decide to erect a building
ires'are several things'to be consid

Second, We estimate the cost;

draw the lesson pictures. In present

fy the language as much as possible
and endeavor to center their minds on
one important object in the picture,
and if we only impress one thought
each time we meet we have not met in

quietly during class hour, thereby
forming good habits of promptness
and order, our time is not lost.

for guidance in all wisdom, for to the
primary teacher is intrusted the first
training of the superintendents, officers
and teachers of the Sunday School of
the future.

A Sermon Full of Soupd Doctrine.
R ev. Brock, of the First Baptist
' church of Welsh, preached Sunday
night a splendid sermon full of genu
ine christianity. In his discourse be
pointed out the duty of the Christian
to the sinner, and explained why so
many, who would otherwise have more
respect for the church and connect
themselves with It. were it not for the
actions and conduct'of certain mem
bers of every denomination. In other
words drive people from the house of
God by their proud and haughty
hearing, instead of inducing them by
kind words and affection to visit often
the places of worship. Christ in his
humble self.sacrificing way redeemed
the world. A business man for the
love of the almghty dollar will as
sociate and be familiar with his in
feriors socially and why should not he
for the Great Cause of Jesus Christ
and the Christian religion do likewise.
Rev. Brock gave the back-biters and
liars hot shot from his well supplied
arsenal. Rev. Brock is a young man
and we perdict for him a bright future
in the ministerial field.

North Peters Street Says Country Mills e
till Hlave the Age.
New Orleans Picayune: Secretary
Palmer of the local Rice association,
yesterday made the following state
nment about the new rice-rate schedule:
"Discussion among local ricemen
relative to the rates established by the
Railroad Commis ,ion for apl)plication I
on rice shipments over the Southern
Pacific Railroad reveals that the C'(om
mission's decision is not regarded by
them in the light of a victory for the
New Orleans interests. While mate
rial reductions have been made in the
rates to the benefit of the industry in
general, they are of such as to redound
more to the advantage of the country
mills, owing to the great reduction in
cleaning rice rates, which are sutficient
to more than offset the reduction in
rough-rice rates into New Orleans by 4
the mills here, and enable the country
mills to bring their rice to this market
at an even better basis than formerly,
from a freight rate standpoint, as conm- t
pared with the cost to the New Orleans
mills. Referring to the claims of the
country mills, referred to in the Pica
yune of the 12th, that the new rates
placed them at a disadvantage, it is
stated that the rates published by the i
commission are, in fact, those asked
for by the country mills, and that they t
were favored by the commissioner
from that district, because they were
understood to be entirely satisfactory 1
to the ricemen of the interior and to t
protect their interests thoroughly. It 1
is a well known fact that the country t
ricemen, who were at first opposed to i
the reduction asked for by the city, t
have lately come out in favor of the 1
reduction, which is explained by the I
fact that they realize that it would re- I
dound to their advantage. Owing to H
the higher cost of operating in the city I
and the greater weight of rough rice,
on which city mills pay freight, than I
that of the corresponding amount of
the clean, on which the country mills 1
are assess*d. it is practically impossi
ble to make a rate that will give the
New Orleans mills an actual competi
tive advantage over those of the inte
rior, and the most they had to expect
in the fight just closed before the com- 1
mission wasto obtain as near an equal
ity with the country mills as a fair and
just rate basis would afford. While
they have not obtained the scale of
rates which they asked and to which I
they felt they were entitled. yet some- I
thing has been accomplished to benefit
the rice industry of the State, and the
New Orleans rice people feel that in l
the struggle they have 'borne the bur
den and heat of the day. and the coun
try has secured the lion's share of the
benefits."''

LeB4en. Boys Under Arrest.
The rumors concerning the sensa
tional doings at the Ward I convict
came at Iowa,, of which D. E. LeBleu
was foreman and Mitchell' LIBleu was
guard, came to a head yesterday when
Deputy Sheriff Chitwood placed the
two LeBleus under arrest and present
ed them an order from Sheriff Reid re
questing their commissions and de
manding that they turn over their pris
oners to his keeping. D. E. LeBleu
had surrendered his commission to
Deputy Chitwood last Friday, but
Mitchell Le-Bleu was still'in posses
sion of his and was found guardlng the
convicts by Deputy Chitwood.
Both men submitted willingly to ar
rest. turning over their two convicts,
Jesse Stafford and a Mexican, whose
name is unknown, and accompanied
the deputy and the two convicts to the
station at Iowa, where they boarded
the westbound Southern Pacific train
due here at 3:58 p. m. When the train
arrived here the Mexican took advant
age of the deputy's attention being
) centered on the other prisoners and
jumped through the window of the car
and made his escape. He has not yet
been apprehended.
The deputy sheriff and his three pris
oners arrived here and proceeded to
I the sheriff's otlice, where the two Le
)Bleus promptly gave bond in the sum
Sof $150 each for their appearance at
the district court, with M. O. LeBlcu,
of the Loyd-Prater Grocery Co., as
surety. Stanford was sent to the par
Sish jail to serve out the remainder of
i his sentence.
SThe warrants for the arrest of the
) LeBleus were sworn out on informs.a
tion furnished by one Levi Spaulding.
a citizen of Iowa, and the one for D.
E. LeBleu charges of disturbing the
peace and attempting to bribe Earl
) Foster and Wash. Moore, while the
) charge against Mitchell LeBleu is car
) rying concealed weapons and bribery.
Jesse Stafford, the negro convict,
tells a damaging story against the two
LeBleus, which, If substantiated, will
)show that there were some grounds for
the rumors. He made a statement to
the sheriff's otlice attachees to the
effect that the two LeBleus had strip- It
ped the convicts in their camp of their
clothing and shot at their feet with
theirrevolvers, ordering them to dance
on penalty of having their feet shot tt
full of holes if they refused. He states
that they threatened to kill any of the le
prisoners who told what had happened
in the camp.
Both 1). E. LeBieu and Mitchell Le
Bleu were seen by a Press reporter
this morning and each emphatically
denied Stanford's story. They further
state that the charges against them are
the outgrowth of spite work and that
they will easily prove themselves inno
cent of them. --Lake Charles l'ress.

Spirit of Weekly Papers. d
There is something refreshing about a
turning away from a pile of daily P
newspapers and taking up weekly and w
and semi-wkekly issues from smaller a
places, says the Denver Republican. li
The dailies from larger centers of pop- P
ulation have all become more or less
inoculated with the virus of yellow d
journalism. with a few notable excep- .
tions. P
The pile of weekly exchanges. how- t(
ever, indicates that the country editors a
have grasped readily that part of the
new phase of journalism, which might ti
be termed enterprise, but have refused tE
to follow the sensational and unreli- 0
able methods of the larger sheets. The it
type is cleaner and brighter than be
fore: pictures are frequently used to tl
make the pages attractive; more at- 0
tention is paid to a proper display of tl
advertisements, and the press work is sW
much better as a rule. d
But through it all the weekly paper w
has remained true to its- principles, and ti
its editor has his forefinger upon the
public pulse. When the editor confers
with the mayor ad discovers that the
chief executive of the town wants the
streets cleaned, he prints something w
like this:
"Mayor So-and-So calls our atten- *
tion to the fact that the stree.s need
cleaning up and the weeds-need cutting.
We have observed this ourselves, and
right in this connection we desire to
say that if some of our lazy,.good-for
nothing citizens don't get out and
hustle a little bit this spring the city
will send around somebody to do the
work for them, and a big.'husky col
lector will follow. There is no sense
in letting this town go to seed."
There you have as honest an expres
sion of purpose and opinion as could
drip from the pen. The editor means
it, and he doesn't care whrther the
mayor belongs to his party or not.
When the mayor of a larger city makes
a request for a general cleaning up of
the city, one paper ceincides with him
regardless of everything in the nature
of politics, another comes out and says
there is a gr.ft in the street cleaning
department, another thinks it is an
opening wedge to smuggle a new alder
man into the council, and another is
wary of the proclamation on general
principles. Al! of this grows out of
the new policy of indirectness and
misrepresentation.
For a concentration of honest effort
and the maintenance of true civic pride,.
the weekly papers still hold the lead
over most dailies.

()On the 11th inst. Philip ('cverdale,
of Welsh, wrote to Prof. l)obson. of l
the Crop I'est (Commnission: in regard (
to the rite maggot and in repli to this (

SHREVI:It'I'n , LA., July 17. 10ti. i
MR.-'Hil.II'P ('(iV.:I'I)A LE, W elsh. La.:
Dear Sir: Your favor of the I Itlh
inst. to P'rof. W. IH. D)odson has been t
referreferred to this oice for reply. It is
very probabhle that the worm which is (
injuring the rice crop in your vicinity
is the regular rice maggot or rice wee- a
vil. The little white wornis are the
larv;, or immature stage of a small]
weevil known as the rice weevil, which
is of a dark brown color, about one- I
eighth of an inch in length. In fact, !
during the month of May, we received I
a great many of these weevils fromi
parties in rice sections. The weevils w
were abundant at that time and wetre
attracted in large numbers to electric
lights and were mistaken by many
people for the cotton boll weevil.
It is supposed that the rice weevil
deposits its eggs about the roots of the
growing rice, or upon or in the lower
part of the same. These eggs hatch in
to the little worms which seem to work
at or below the surface of the water.
No remedy has been found so far for
this insect, except to draw off the wa
ter from the infested field and leave it
off as long as possible without injur- I
ing the crops.
In fact, very little is known about
this insect, and it is a pest that really 1
ought to be carefully investigated, and
this department will attempt to make a
study of it as soon as it is possible to
do so. It is doubtful, though. if it
will be able to give the pest any atten
tion this year.
Yours very truly,
WItLMON NEWELL, Secretary.
