Ruys Canning Outt;ts.
St. Martil.vlle.--A special m¶eeting
of the school board was held recently
and among matters of interest was
the purchase of canning outfits for
the four canning clubs recently estab
lished in the four principal schools of
'the parish. Each child belonging to
the club will be instructed in the
plaflting and cultivation of o'ne-tenth
of an acr3 of tomatoes, as well as
some of the best vegetables. It is the
purpose of the board to invite the
parents of the pupils when the ca.n
ning is in progress.
A committee has been appointed to
sell the land belonging to the agricul
tural school and to purchase a ten
acre lot in Breaux Bridge where the
school will be located in the future.
The reason for the change is that
the parish around Breaux Bridge is
divided into small farms, while about'
St. Martinville there are large sugar
plantations, which prevent the getting
together of as many farmers as can
be had in the upper part of the parish.

STORAGE RULES REVISION.
New Orleans Terminal Lines, Whole

sentatives at Meetng.
New Orleans.-A meeting of all the
New Orleans terminal lines with the
leading wholesalers and jobbers was
held Saturday and the stupendous
task of revising, or perhaps changing
entirely, the storage rules was coni
monced, placing this port on the same
basis as Galveston.
The big dealers complain that the
storage charge arrangements in New
tly Orleans permits of brokers and lesser
as business men, who are under little if
or any expense of maintaining offices.
ib- competing with them on the same
of basis as though the little fellows had
to offices and warehouses of their own.
he New Orleans storage on general
th merchandise is lc per 100 pounds for
as the first ten days and %c per 100
he pounds for all succeeding ten days.
he Cotton is allowed ten days' free
time and certain classes of wood
stuffs four days' free time. The deal.
to ers who maintain big business houses
ul and pay heavy licenses contend that
,n. the lesser dealers order freight intc
he the city and leave it in the railroad
. sheds until they sell it to an advan.
at tage, paying the small storage charge
is and so saving the expense of operat
ut ing warehouses.
ar The opponents of the measure, as
ig well as most of the railroad freight
LI traffic men, are of the opinion that
h. the present storage arrangement is
contrary to the third section of the
act to regulate commerce and a move
4- ment will be inaugurated to put into

Needs More Authority.
Mansfield.-The town.council have
considered the advisability of voting
0 to come under the provisions of the
i1 McLawrason act of 1898 in order to
s enable the town to have more author
t ity in the matter of public improve
d ments. Under the provisions of the
s charter as granted by an act of the
L, legislature of 1902, the authority of
s the municipality as to public improve
- ments is limited, so much so that that
h question 'of securing water works,
sewerage and street paving is next
to impossible. This matter will be
threshed out by the mayor and town
e attorney and reported upon.

The report sets forth the results of
