D. EL MASON,IdlSer s . P a E. D. KENTZEL, MalRN . THE DEFEAT OP THE WATERWORKS. Any one who has looked into the canes of the defeat of the plan for a waterworks system for Covington cannot but bp impressed with the fact that defeat came through a lack of energetic promotion. A large num ber who votes against it did so under the mihaprehension that enormous expen:e would be imposed upon them if the measure carried. Agents of the opposition did not hesitate to magnify the expense. Statements that the tax would be ten mills and that the expense of connection would be one hundred dollars; that residents would be compelled to put in new faucets and to make connections, etc., are reported from various sources. The statements of these people that they would have voted for the propo sition hal taey snt been ander such misapprehension serves no good purpose now. Tile need for waterworks is apparent to any person who is familiar with conditions. The appeal of the members of the fire department for water with which to fight fire; their unwillingness to longer stand the ridicule that n.eets them when they attempt the impossible, and their preference to resign rather than to remain under such conditions, all speak plainly of the great lo:s that has been sustained In the defeat of the measure, not consider.ng the inconvenience to those whose bath tubs are merely orna mental most of the time, if they are situated upstairs in the outer part of town. If the present waterworks system of Covington could meet the require ment3 of the citizens and the fire department, if there was plenty of water to hfush gutters and keep them in sanitary codilltion-in fact if there was plenty of water for tae purpose that water is needed in a town like Coy ington, there would have been no attempt to put in a new system. But since the privately owned system, of which Mr. E. J. Frederick is head, has always been represented as not a paying concern that would Justify the reconstruction of pipes and mains to meet the requirements of the town, it is difLcult to understand why a fight should be made to postpone the inc vitable climax to such a .situation. Self-preservation is a natural law of nature. We can easily compre head why an effort should be made to protect business Interests.. Bdtt the only way to protect business interests is to build that business to a state of etliciency. When this is done, the best possible protection is thrown around tnat lusirnes:, b.t the defy that says, I will not do and thou shalt not do, mutt surely meet defeat. We believe that a committee should have been appointed to examine into the value of the present waterworks system, and that that committee should have been competent to make such a valuation. Also that a rea sonab.e amount should have been paid for the good will of the company, because the coipany has, without any great proat (according to state ments), supplied the town with what water it could for a number of years. But we cannot find excuse for Mr. Frederick making the statement that he woulJ an.t dght waterworks, and then doing so. The light for waterworks has merely been laid on the shelf. It is a necessity that must bring real:zation of it; Inportance And the battle will be refought until it is won. The only thing that can possibly prevent it is the building of the present system up to the requirements or the shrink. age of Cov.ngton to the in.dignidcance of a'has-been town.

Trelawney of the Wells, Vivian Gray, Frank Valentine- No Myr tina. He was not a hero in one of Mrs. Sigourney's novels. Until about a year ago he was identified with a horse and buggy, the property of B. M. Miller, Esquire. His past drifts back long, long into the twilight cI St. Tammany's arite bellum. This entitled him to the distinction of "Uncle Frank." He was born so long ago that he never had a fath er. But the good old saint of February 14th remembered Frank's man ny in a particular way, so Frank Valentine took his family name from his patron saint. The god of love has more than one variety of the article for this stock in trade. Loyalty is one of the ingredients. When this ingredient superabounds in large quantities it produces that rare thing called friendship in men, but still retains its true title in horses, dogs and faithful old colored servants like Uncle Frank, where its abundance is frequently more marked. Mr. Miller buried Uncle Frank last Tuesday. We once lost an "Uncle Frank." DAILY LESSONS FROM THE TALMUD. The up, very-up-to-date skirt uncovers a multitude of sins. Consider the man iiho would look for his own faults, and him who would find his favorite necktie on the night of the party. What the one-half in Covington doesn't know about the other half won't hurt them. A woman will probably like the things you like, but she'll despise the "things" you'll love. There is one "boling-match" we all may expect sooner or later to get hung up in. Our partner in the sport is the undertaker. Marriages are made in heaven, but heaven isn't always made in He who kisses and stays single, may live to kiss another day. Keeping your wedding anniversary in mind is one thing, but re. membering how many years you are married is another.

When the days of transmigration arrive, the £lidell American will_ probably be reincarnated into the greatest bird-dog the world has ever known. Coursing its sensitive nose over the sdhool board's report, pub lished recently, ur contemporary was left no doubt but what it smelled a rat. No, no, brother, there are no discrepencies in this report.

We have fully ihvestigated your complaint, and all of the information you desire may be had for the most informal asking at the office of Elmer' E. Lyon, Parish Superintendent, or better still, we suggest that you get the "dope" from the attractive lady in the oflee whom the professor takes out to lunch every day.
