Mr. Abner Heifner left last Friday for his home in Shreveport after spending two days here with his mother, Mrs. C. A. Heifner. Mrs. Sallie White and her little grand daughter, Leila, returned home Sunday from Shreveport, where they enjoyed visit with relatives. a After a pleasant visit of a few days 'with relatives residing in Rocky Mount, Mr. J. M. OglesCy left last Friday for his home in Jefferson, Texas. this the Sheriff J. F. Edwards returned home Sunday from Pineville, where he went to take Narcissus Davis, a negress from Ward One, who was recently interdicted A nonjury term of Bossier District Court will be convened here next Mon day. Several offenders, charged with misdemeanors and now out on bond, will no doubt be haled before the Judge. Mr. J. A. Stocker, a barber of twelve years' experience, has leased the fixtures in this place and is now conducting a first-class shop on the first floor of the Masonic Hall. See his advertisement elsewhere on this page. The operators at the oil well site three miles north of this place several days since, after drilling through a rock de posit, again struck salt water. Opera tions have been suspended and w'e are told the well will be abandoned. Visitors to Belcher Lodge, F. and A. M., from this place Tuesday night were Messrs. C. O. Gayle, F. B. Ogden, W. A. Martin, W. A. Fortson, A. M. Wyche, J. T. Hanks and Dr. J. Z. Wise. Mr. A. M. Stroud was raised to the Master's degree. Mr. Claude Faircloth of the Bellevue bridge community was*a visitor in Ben ton Monday morning. He reported that Bodeau is still too high for fishing, but thinks that, because of the uniform stage of the water after it rose, all eggs hatched well and that good fishing sea sans are to follow. The total number of bales of cotton ginned in Bossier Parish for the crops of 1910, 1911 and 1912, counting round bales as half bales and excluding linters, was as follows: For 1910, 13,020 bales; for 1911, 21,518 bales, and for 1912, 21,311 bales. These figures were fur nished the Banner by the Feberal De partment of Commerce. Since the last issue of the Banner more than 8200 has been raised by indi vidual subscriptions as a fund for re pairing public walks and street cros sings in our town. The matter of giving to this cause was properly received by our townspeople, as the Banner predict ed it would be, most of them subscribing liberally to the fund. It is a tax—that and nothing more—and no resident who has the means to spare should make the slightest effort to dodge it. The list Was circulated by Dr. J. Z. Wise and and ing by to tf? *?'?

Ivey left yesterday for a visit of two weeks with her parents, Mr. and Mrs. J. B. Williams, who reside near Horner. The Parish Jail has now been empty for some days, but Sheriff Edwards says he expects to gather in at least one at an early date. Mrs. M. J. Head of Minden is here on a visit with relatives. She came chiefly to be with her brother, Mr. B. A. Kelly, during his illness. Mr. R. E. Wyche and his daughter, Miss Jessie, left Monday for St. Louis on a business and pleasure trip com bined. They are expected home Sat urday. Owing to the continued cool nights and the dryness of the season nearly all stands of cotton are poor. Some have planted the second time and, if we are correctly informed, others are now doing so. Mrs. Sue T. Abney, Miss Grace Lar kin, Mr. Lee N. Bush and Mr. J. T. Hanks, all cf this place, were in Shreve port Sunday to witness the laving of the corner stone and incident ceremonies at the new First Methodist Church. We regret to report the illness of Mr. B. A. Kelly, who has been confined to his room for some days. His condition was at first rather serious, but it thought that after a few more days of rest and quiet he will be all right. He is said to be afflicted with some organic trouble. Yesterday Mr. Sid Adger stated to the Banner's reporter that at his home there were about seventy-five young turkeys off the nest, all doing well. Within day or so he expects to have 100, or even more. They are about as good as any of the staple crops, if one knows how to raise them. After a lingering illness, Mrs. H. J Boltz, died yesterday afternoon at 1:40 o'clock in Shreveport. Mr. Boltz, wid ower of the deceased, is a Methodist minister, and is now located in the Red River District. The family formerly re sided in this parish, where they have many friends. The news of the death of this estimable lady will be received by the Banner's readers with a feeling of genuine] sorrow.

Gentlemen: It is time for us to begin to think about our Parish Fair for 1913. Perhaps you have been thinking, and not only thinking, but planning to that end. We are going to have a fair! We are going to have a good fair if we want a good one. We] can make it good by every one feeling that he is part of the fair—which he is. If you do nothing for it, you will work against it. You cannot be neutral. There is no one in Bossier Parish, I am sure, but who wants the parish to have the best fair it ever had and wants it to be in line for its place at the State Fair. We have a reputation; we must keep it up. [Sometimes we hear the byword, "He has all to gain and nothing to lose." Not so with our fair. I want all who feel an interest in Bos sier Parish to try and prepare something for our fair. We need exhibits of field products generally, grain, grasses, pro duce, fruits, vegetables, canned goods, nuts, seeds, tobacco, sugar cane, cotton, pumpkins, squashes, honey, wines, dried fruits, etc. We want corn from the boys' corn clubs and canned goods by girls' canning clubs, and nice fat hogs from the boys' hog club. From the public high schools we want some work. This can be selected by the teachers. I hope they will not fail to have some work prepared especially for an exhibit at the fair. One high school might compete against another high school and one public school against another. Suitable premiums will be offered for this work. Will you try for them? We want to see more live stock, es pecially hogs, cattle and sheep, than has been exhibited heretofore. To the ladies, with their needlework and culinary art, we want you to be there—with the goods. Don't forget the flowers while you are preparing the other exhibits. We expect to have a better place this year in which to exhibit your work. We hope to have good music and quite a number of attractions that will be both interesting and instructive. of in the a at J. 1913 MAY 1913 s M T w T F s _ — —— 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 29 30 31 Phases of the Moon.

If you will serve—do what you can—we will have a good fair. Do not wait to be asked to do something special. Think of something you can prepare and get busy now. Have your plans all laid ahead so the work will be easy and pleasant. Yours respectfully, M. S. Bolinger, President Parish Fair Ass'n. Bolinger, La., April 29, 1913. Burgess.

In other words, a publisher is only permitted to use the mails to forward his paper, or other publication, to bona fide subscribers. In the event the regulation is violated the post office authorities bar the pub lisher from circulating his publication at newspaper rates. That would just about take his living away from him, wouldn't it? The Government holds that the subscriber of a weekly newspaper who is twelve months in arrears is not a bona fide subscriber. Then it must be very clear to all that we cannot grant credit on subscription for a term in excess of twelve months. This much we are wil ling to do for any reputable citizen who is a resident of Bossier or any of its adjoining parishes. 1 ® • 2 u • Inventors to Organize. A meeting of the inventors of the State will be held at the Commercial National Bank Building, in Shreveport, Saturday afternoon at three o'clock for the purpose of effecting an organization for mutual benefit in securing patents and promoting the interests of those who become members. All who have had one or more patents issued are eligible to membership. There are no doubt a number of inventors in Bossier Parish who would be benefitted by be coming members of such an organiza tion. Notice to Those Interested. On Thursday, May 15th next, those who are interested will meet at Rocky Mount Cemetery for the purpose of cleaning off all graves. Bring necessary tools and don't forget your baskets. J. P. Gleason.

Kindly give space to my views on the good roads tax proposition, which, if adopted, may lead to much better reads throughout the entire parish at a very nominal expense to the people, and at the same time give equal rights to all concerned Continue, and if possible, raise the per capita tax to $2.50. Then levy a tax sufficient to give all public roads—no matter where located—(be required work to put them in the same passable con dition. Heretofore main public highways have been getting a greater portion of the work and the little intersectihg roads have been neglected—the rcsi dents on these roads paying taxes the same as others and getting very little benefit from it. So it seems to me that this, like the $300,000 bond issue would results in special-favor roads and not , - , _ , oii'l™ 1 rights to ail concerned. _borne of us are getting old and would like to enjoy good roads starting right at home and roads a3 good a8 any in the parish If this equal-right road tax is left to vote I feel sure it will be carried by an overwhelming majority.
