LEWIS MAKES A STATEMENT (Continued from page 1) $2.00 to get same carried into build ings where booth was located. Said booth was 75 yards from where wag ons stop and I could not handle some of the boxes myself and as help was scarce 1 had to spay this or let it alone. I also had to buy my own lumber to fix up booth and all cloth and decorations, also nails, ta'..s, hammer, etc., and do all work. I am not a rich man or I would not. be on this- job, and as I was over there with only a few dollars I just did the best I could and have no apologies to make on this score. I have since been compljmented on my feeiile efforts by some in spite of the hammering of others. Now, the reason all parties d:d not share in the prizes as 'indivwdu als was because I was not there on the grounds every doy of the fair. Why was I not theretli Every one knows it costs money to stay in the city of New Orleans. The exhibil. were not judged all in one day as our little fair was. The judgin4 was not finished till Saturday morn ing, November 17, after the fair had opened one week before, on the 10th. To get justice to our exhibits I should have 'been right at the bo,s)' and when the judges called for each article, if I had any in my booth, take it up to the counter, have :t judged and place same 'back where it belonged in my booth. This kind of business went on for. tour con secutive days and I was not there. Why? WhQ in the world is it that will pull the money out of his pocktt and stay in the city a week for a thing so uncertain as prize winning i a big fair, and a thing of public interest, too? I did not have the four dollars a day to spend hal I wanted to-and it will cost that MIuch to live in New Orleans. Did any one come to me and say that in case I needed money to make our booth shine or to stay with it: to call on them? No. I am out of my own :pockets the sum of $21.00 on this exhibit and would have been more, but Mr. Warner ordered sonme other expenses paid, amounting to $13.00. Now let the author of the article place himself in my shoes and think, 'what would you have done? Let him also think how much space he spent in advertising or talk ing up this exhibit. Oh yes, after it was all over it is easy to blame some one, but let every one say to them Aelves, what did you do to help it along? The only thing I am sorry for is the name it gave this parisb and also that the 'ladies above men tioned did not get to have their splendid canned goods judged, for they were fine. As for the balance, I am not sorry, for I did all the bal ance myself, and in that case I am disappointed. Let those who live In glass houses not throw stones. It is a fact that it is easy to knock but hard to do the very things that the knocking is done over. I think th. article was/hasty and not looked into before hand. But let same be. As for .the potato house, where is in man who tried to get in same with p:otatoes? I advertised that I would be on hand on a certain week to receive potatoes and no one cam?. All farmers found out that they could get good prices for their p3 tatoes and what was the use of using the potato kiln. That is the reason why no potatoes 'were placed in the kiln. Did any one help to boost this? No. I did. I have nothing more to do or say than this. I have done my duty as far as trying to get the potatoes is concerned. Let the author of this article try to buy potatoes enough to ill the kiln and see how he will come out. Good Iprices will have to 'be paid to 'get them. Am I to blame for the dry weather and the short crop? No; complain to He who knows you. On the 'whole I think as well as many of my friends that this editorial could have Ibeen left off or put in a milder form. If this does not ex plain my standpoint in the famous inefficiency case, why I will better do so in person. I might say that the parishes mak ing such a good show had spent any where from $150 to $300 in getting up the exhibit and in paying way of agent to New Orleans to put up stuff and make a good display. How much did I have? Nothing. Even at that, this parish had a better ex hibit than East Baton Rouge, a par ish in which our State capitol is lo oated and one much richer agricul turally than this parish. The man using the hammer did not notice this. Others did. "Do unto others as you would have others do unto you." Mly resignation will be found in another column. IBest wishes to all.

The Navy Department has au thorized the recruiting officer to fur nish transportation, on request of a postmaster, to an applicant for en listment in the Navy. This trans portation is from a man's home to the Navy Recruiting Station, 730 Common Street, New Orleans, La. A physical examination by a local physician approved 'by the postmast er is necessary. If the applicant passes this phy sician's examination successfully, the Olled out and signed blank is to be mailed to the Navy Recruiting Ot11 cer, by the postmaster, with the re quest for transportation to New Or leans. It is hoped that furnishing trans portation will entole many young men to join the Navy who otherwise would not be able to personally dea a Navy Recruiting Officer. This physical examination by a local doctor is tentative. The final acceptance examination is ggde only at the Navy Recruiting Station, 730 Common street, New Orleans. Ap plicants who fail in New Orleans will be given return transportation to their homes. For further information see Post master, Covington, La.
