MATTER PLACED IN HANDS COMMITTEE Sentiment Strong to Carry Out Real Intent of the Law. (By F. F. Wigginton.) Slidell, La., May 22.-A most en thusiastic meeting to consider ways and means of building at once the link of highway between Chef Men tour to Rigolets and ILogtown, Miss., was held here today and representa tives from every part of this section and New Orleans were present and deeply interested in the proceedings. The net result of the meeting was a thorough discussion of every phase of the highway construction, a better understanding all around of the situ ation and the appointment of an ex ecutive committee of five with full authority to make any necessary ar rangements with other organizations, officials, highway commissions, etc., and to proceed to take action that might tend to have work started on the roadway without delay. At the suggestion of Mr. H. Wes ton, this committee is composed en tirely of Slidell men, as the missing link in this highway is through the southern part of St. Tammany parish. The committee is as follows: J. 1). Brant. F. Salmen, E. F. Hailey, L. V. Cooley, S. W. Provensal, and C. A. Everitt, vice chairman. By unamious action of the meet ing, Dr. J. K. Griffith was elected chairman and F. F. Wigginton sec retary-treasurer. Mr. H. S. Weston declined the chairmanship owing to his being unfamiliar with the Louisi ana laws and, also, being very active on the Mississippi side. Mr. F. Sal men declined as he contemplated be ing away for a considerable length of time. Messrs. W. I. Gore and J. L. Fletterrich acted as assistant sec retaries of the meeting, the full ac tion of which will be reported later. There were delegations in attend ance from various towns in St. Tam many iparish. Those from outside the parish were: A. G. Thomas, Commissioner Stone, W. F. Cooper, New Orleans; Mayor John K. Ken nedy, M. L. Michel, J. E. Breaux, Jr., Biloxi; J. F. Galloway, highway com missioner Harrison county, Miss.; W. D. Robinson, 1R. V. Abbley. J. E. Spenrce Capt. S. L. McGlathery, Pass Christian; Geo. Poole, D. C. Bowen, Ex-Mayor Geo. M. Foote, Gulfport; J. C. Mauffray, J. W. Varin, Mayor R. W. Webb. R. T. Perkins, Bay St. Louis; H. S. Weston. Log Town; Mayor E. F. Tate, J. L. Magehee, J. M. B. Spence, Picayune; R. L. Nador, H. U. Stevenson, Nicholson; R. J. :Ladner, Lake Shore, Miss. The meeting was entirely harmoni ous, good feeling being exhibited on all sides, and delegates were loud in their appreciation of the splendid en tertainment provided for their bene fit. Commissioner Stone. representing Mayor Behrman, assured the :,meeting of the vital interest that New Orleans had in the construction of this high way and explained the nature of the meeting had in. Mayor Behrman's Iparlor on the 20th inst. 'mr. W. F. Cooper, representing the State High way Department (Duncan Buie), ad vised of the amount of construction which had already been completed, the amount partly completed, and the amount necessary to complete the connection with the Mississippi good roads, advising that the amount nec essary to complete the highway to the Mississippi line involved an ex penditure of $617,000, which would about use up all of the money in the fund for the construction of the two ihghways out of New Orleans, and while the law provides that the Chef Menteur road is the first to be constructed it was the sense of this meeting that we would not be selfish in the matter and we have left all arrangements in the hands of the executive committee, who immediate ly went into session at the conclusion of the general meeting and it is ex pected that we will have some very tangible results l':om their delibera tions. t Mr. W. L. Ellis welcomed the dele gates in a very bl: 'ny manner. May or McGlathery, of Pass Christian. made a very plea- ng address, as did also Mayor Wet" of BEay St. Louis. J. F. Galloway, !. ;hway commission er of Harrison co" -ty. Sheriff Varin of Hancock coun''. said, "Sheriffs never talk. H-Io, -er. he wanted to say he apprecia' . l his reception, etc." Mayor E.

"The time for talk had passed." and suggested an immediate meeting of the execu tive committee (of which he is chair man) and they at once went into executive session.

The Chautauqua had a very suc cessful season, although some of the numbers were not as good as last year, 'Mr. Haggerman's lecture, "The Man With One Window," was great ly enjoyed by everybody, and "It Pays To Advertise" left standing room only. Upon the whole, the peo ple are glad to know that the Chau auqua will be here2 again next year. --IASR----- ABITA SPRINGS NEWS. Mrs. Josephine Weintraub, of New Orleans is the guest of Mrs. E. E.

I About 11 o'clock Monday night a shooting scrape occurred among the negroes in the neighborhood of a Il saloon during a dance and card game at the house of Blanche Williams, in Mandeville. in which Lisbon Slade, a schooner captain, was killed, being shot through the body from side to side. The shooting was general and it was difficult to get direct testi mony, but Coroner Bulloch charged Henry Howard with shooting with in tent to kill. Albert Slade was also shot and was taken to the Marine Hospital, New Orleans. When Slade I was shot he rushed to the rear or the room and died in the arms of Blanch I Williams. A still larger corwd would have been in attendance had it not been for the storm in the evening. The prize for the child selling the most tickets was won by Marguerite Seiler, who sold 192. Ralphalia Du fore won the second prize with 152 tickets. Both refused to take the $5.00 gold piece, but donated it to the Department. Belmont Sanchez sold 50 tickets. MUSEUM GETS A BIG MOCCASIN FROM HERE Bush, La., May 15, .1919. Editor St. Tammany Farmer: Recently, while working in Cov ington, I captured a giant cotton mouth moccasin snake which I think, and probably is, the largest in Lou isiana. While 'fishing in Bogue Falaya river just opposite Covington, I espied this snake. I made a success ful cast with my reel and line so tak ing him without any mishap. I lassoed him, carried him to town and after showing him on the streets, boxed and forwarded him to the Lou isiana State Museum, which you will see from the following letter. Yours truly, r J. E. NOBLE, Agent N. O. G. N. New Orleans, May 7, 1919. Mr. J. E. Noble, Covington, La. Dear Sir:--We are pleased to ac knowledge the receipt of the four foot cotton-mouth moccasin which you generously sent to the Louisiana State Museum in a living condition as a contribution to the Natural His tory Department. The snake came in good condition and we are keeping the same alive for a few days in order to make some photographs and measurements as it is one of the largest that we have seen of its species. We expect to make several casts of the snake and to mount the skin and perhaps, to prepare a skeleton Af the -bony structure for exhibition, and will be glad to have you pay us a visit in the near future and see the result. Please accept the thanks of the Boaptl for the donation and be as sured that the courtesy is very much appreciated. Cordially yours, ROBERT GLENK, Curator. ------ - LIST OF SPECIAL PETIT JURORS.

RICE GROWERS AWAIT REPORT COMMITTEE The meeting of the rice growers of St. Tammany and adjoining par ishes for the purpose of considering the erection of a rice mill here was enthusiastic, even though every step takes was a cautious one. Data gathered shows that a yield of 28,000 oags may be harvested this year. Ten bags per acre. is the yield, where but little fertilizer is used. there are tens of thousands of acres of cut over land here at $10 per acre easily irrigated and easily drained. $750,000 will soon be spent on tne highways. There are two railroads and a boat line to Covington, all or which will make the handling of :ough rice to the mill and the ship ping of the finished product not only possible but reasonable in freight ra:es. The acreage planted to rice will continue to increase. The mill could darw on other sections also. The next meeting of the growers will be the last day of May, when it is expected to have some expert rice mill men present to discuss the prop osition with the growers and local financiers. The meeting will bd at 1.0:30 a. m. at the courthouse. Mr. W. E. Morriss was made chair man of a committee to report within a week. Mr. James J. Lewis was prevented from attending the meeting because of illness and writes Mr. Warner, president of the Association of Com merce, that he will be present at any meeting 'we may designate, and be liOVes other rce men will be inter ested. THE FAIR ASSOCIATION. The stockholders of the St. Tam many Parish Fair Association elected he new Board of Directors for the -nsuing year. These directors were chosen from all parts of the parish, from among the stockholders, and every section of the parish is repre sented. Thej, will meet at the office of the Association May 29th at 11 o'clock for the purpose of electing the new staff of officers. A Home Coming Celebration is be ing planned for the returning sol. diers by the Fair Association to take place July the Fourth. SUPPORTS EDUCATION LAW. Editor St. Tammany Farmer: Doubtless many of your readers have read with interest certain let ters concerning the compulsory edu cation law. Sometimes we are amazed when we see such splendid laws enacted for the general benefit of- all mankind, :nd are soon astounded to see with what contempt they are looked upon by the same people that these laws were intended to have benefitted. Justice is so sadly and so badly perverted sometimes until we are re minded of the proverbial Irishman who, u'pon having been haled into court for some offense, was soon dis covered by his attorney to be much excited, whereupon he was advised not to fear that he would get justice. Patrick replied that was what he feared. Again we are reminded of certain words of Holy Writ, namely, "Why are laws- made but to be ob served." We had hoped that when the compulsory law was enacted In this state it would surely solve the school attendance problem and would have had the good law, been enforced and without favor toward any. I am not an officer of the law neither do I aspire to be, however, it does not require the wisdom of Soloman to see how futile it is to ex pect progress and enlightenment when means at hand are not utilized. This is not written to -discredit or to attract any one. Perhaps many are to be blamid for the many evils, particul-arly the miscarriage of jus tice. Many are beginning to recog nize the greatem need of certain kinds of education and a higher civilization for a new dispensation has dawned. I am not among those who claim that education alone will remedy all the evils of our day, but am in favor of enlightenment and progress along every line of thought. Ignorance and prejudice and often superstition 'block the way. We trust that the good intentioned people will co-operate with .Mr. Lyon anrd others in authority to make the educational law a success. With kindest regards toward all and malice toward -none, I am, .J. E. BLACKWFJTF J ITEMS OF INTEREST AT JAHNCKE SSHIPYARDS IN MADISONVILLE By D. H. Vinet. The many friends of Mr. Jos. Ro tolo are delighted to know that he has been appointed by the U. S. Shipping Board to the- very re sponsible position of Chief Engineer, S. S. Pontchartrain. The purpose of his appointment previous to her de livery by builders is for observation. Mr. Rotolo is another of Madison ville's citizens who possesses the necessary qualifications to do big things. He has long plied 'his pro fession on steam vessels navigating the waters of 'Lake Pontchartrain and tributaries with success. It seems that among the citizenry of Madisonville the government can find a man for every emergency in the way of maritime requirements. Mr. Robt. O'Brien, employed at the Jahncke Shipyard for more than a year in a supervisory capacity, we are sorry to announce is on the sick list in New Orlean.s We hope that he will soon recover his usual good health and return to service with the same vim, vigor and victory spirits that is predominant in his make up. Mr. O'Brien is one among, the many Orleanians who camb here at the outbreak of the war to help make this yard 100 per cent efficient. The Misses IMyrtle Gollehon, Bon ie Mae Smith and Master Victor Oul liber, of Madisonville, graduated from the Covington High School with very high averages of efficiency. Their parents are old citizens of this town and we heartily congratulate them on the accomplishments of their children. With the preparedness se cured by close application to the problems through which they have so successfully passed, there should be no doubt as' to their future suc cess in life. THE PEACE TREATY. When the ex-Kaiser reads the Treaty of Peace he will realize that the world has fully decided reigns like his must cease. Alsace-Lor raine will give to the ex-Kaiser and his breed much pain. Reparation of the wrong done in '71 proves the great victory the Allies won. Section 4, European political class es, means independent rule by the masses. Section 5, referring to China, Tur key, Egypt, Bulgaria, Shantung and Morocco, will put an awful dent In Bill's coco. Limitations of armaments in Sec ton 6 is going to put the would-be War Lord and his nation in a hell of s fix. Persons accused of having com mitted acts in violation of the laws and customs of war and morality have been given a full dose of their cwn brutality. After reading Section 7, we know why the devil said the Kaiser would never get to Heaven. Sections 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14 and 15 smashes the Kaiser's dreams to smithereens. This is the treaty in full. Now we know how Ludendorf and Hin lenburg the Kaiser did "bull." DANCE. Last Wednesday's dance was post poned on account of the commence nent exercises of the 'Madisonville school. In the future dances will be riven every Wednesday and Satur lay. STRIKE OUTS.

'Nine men are supposed to play the lame, that's why they send nine out n the diamond. 'The Dummy was speechless with anger. The ball was declared to be a fool and had he been able to ex press his thoughts we suppose his Ianguage would have resembled the ball. A certain young lady said she did mo hate dishonest men.

Cohen owned three clothing stores, one.in Covington, one in Shreveport and oue in New Orleans. He had a son, Ike, who was drafted and sent to France. After lke had been gone two months and the old man had not heard from him, he sent a cable to him. "Iky, for vy you don't write? Iky, how is your health? Last night the store in Covington burned. I got ten thousand dollars insurance.'" Not hearing, he sent another cable a week later. "Iky, for vy you don't write it no letter to me? How lb your health? Friday the store in Shreveport burned. I got it fifteen thousand dollars insurance. tky, please write papa." One month went by and no letter from Iky. The old man again cabl ed: "Iky, for vy you don't answer papa? Three times I make it cable gram. Iky, how is your health? M~onday night the store in New Or leans burned all up. I1ky, it was such a hot tire. I got thoity thaus and dollars insurance. Please write papa." So Iky finally sends papa a cable: "Don't be vorrying about my health in France. Just keep the home fires burning. Iky Cohen." Did it ever occur to you that it would be quite as gramatioal to say "that air house," "them there books," as to speak of that air ship? The egg comes from the hen; the hen comes from the egg. It may seem hard, but it has been boiling for a long time. A teacher of one of the schools of St. Tammany parish was questioning a boy pupil about the word "re cuperate." As an example, we will take the case of your father. He is, of course, a hard working man. Yes, said the little fellow. And at night he arrives home worn out, dotsn't he? Yes'm, again said the boy. Then, continue dthe teacher, it being night, his work is over, and be is tired and worn out. What does he do? That's just what ma wants to know, replied the boy. A foreigner was boasting to an American of ancestry. He took a coin out of his pocket which had the impression of a former king on its surface. "That," he said, "is the likeness of the man that made my grandfather a lord." After glane ing at it the Amnerican drew from his pocket a penny bearing the In dian head. "That," said the Amerl can, "is the likeness of the man who made my grandfather an angel." In a great many cases money is a splendid substitute for brains. Brains may be all right, but did you ever notice the success of the block-head with a pleasing person ality Nowadays the girls have to be careful when they are walking on a railroad track.

I was on the side of the butcher. Oh, well, blood is thicker than water. It it wasn't for some boarding houses undertakers would get dis couraged an dgo out of business. A modest young woman went to a photographers and asked if he took children's pictures. He replied "Yea; four dollars a dozen." The little lady blushed and said, "I suppose 1'll have to w*ait then. I've only got eleven now." The other day while in New Or leaffns, Louis Stockfleth called to see a friend that works in ~he city court. The Judge, who was trying a case, was disturbed by Louis moving about in the rear of the court room, lift ing chairs and looking under things. "Young man," the Judge caPl'ed out, "yot are making a good de 1 of un necessary noise." "Your honor," re plied Louis, "I lost my hat and I am looking for it." "Well. people often lose whole suits in here without mak ing that much disturbance," said the Judge. Perrin: What is the greatest en gineering feat in the worlQ? Gilbert: Wheeling, West V ir ginia.
