Dear Friends;
For quick, patriotic prepard
ness: poultry , pigs, potatoes, peas
pumpkins and peanuts
We appeal to vou to give special
attention 10 more poultry If every
one will set only one more hen and
raise ten additional chickens, it
will mean con«ide-able in meat and
eggs. It can be done
li everyone wi'l raise just one or
t wo more pips. :t will mean consid
erable meat ii-crease
Ifeverylv.e wiil only increase
the potato acre ge by one or two
acre», it will surely help
Ii possible plant Porto Rico,
Dooley or Nancy Hall sweet pota
toes. It don't c«*sl any more to
grow good yams than it does to
grow idler tor varieties
Everyone shou d plant at least
one acre o! Idack-eye, crowder or
whip poor-will peas. They aie
fine when green and can be gather
ed and dried for winter use
Pumpkins can oe planted in any
old place; tince corners, vacant
lots, etc. Pumpkius aie good not
only for pits, but the dried pump
kins make splendid meal. Fifty
percent pntnpin me l *<nd fifty per

PICNIC
One of the most successful So
cial function of the season was giv
en last Sunday, in the form of a
Picnic, by the young Ladies and
young men of this place. They met
at the Fashion School house, from
whence they drove in automobiles
to the Parndis picnic«-, grounds
The grounds are beautiful and
an ideal place for such rutmgs
having rustic benches, 'tables,
swings and a dancing 'platform.
The ''Eats" were plentiful, varied,
and very delicious. There were 40
odd people, and every one reports
a very enjoyable day
The committee in charge wishes
to thauk Mr. Cadow for the use of
the grounds
FLOTSAM JETaAM
(By Wm D. Cox )
The war situation continues the
one absorbing topic in A T ew Or
leans, as it does the nation over.
Everywhere recruiting stations are
located and everywhere are see the
soldier boys, urging enlistment;
the screens almost of the picture
houses show the adorable colors,
while the orchestras play patriotic
airs and the audience comes to its
feet; newspapers teem with war
preparation stories andSsverything
indicates * something has been
started." No sooner had Foricgn
Secretary Arthur J.Belfour arrived
in this country when he uttered
this sigmfieient statement: "Real
ize, people of America, that you
face a real fight. And be prepared
for great individual sacrifices—for
it will be demanded *' This isfrom
a man who comes from the very
heart of the great struggle and one
whose knowledge of the situation
cannot be-questioned Thiscoun
tiy faces a crisis, the enormity of
which is little yet understood like
wise cannot be questioned "We
are up against it" is certainly the
lang expression as a warning and
our men and women of this repub
lie must face the situation with
sternness and resolution and do
their duty as tt unfolds before
them goes without saying
The price of foodstuffs climbs
higher day by day, and wnai the
poor of our larger cities jare to do
is a problem confronting us at this
very moment. With flour $14 to
$15 a barrel, red beans and rice
double the cost ot a tew monthg
ago and other foodstuffs equally***
high, brings the question most se
riously to the attention of every
thoughtful man and woman in the
land. Now is the time to plant gar
dens aod grow food. The sra»on*is
here, while a little later the time
will have passed. Those who heed
ibis solemn warning now will reap
the reward, while those who do
not must lake the conscquencej

NOVICE
Notice is hereby given th »*. the

F. bchexnaydre,
Secretiry.
I want to ask your assistance
in our food campaign in the wav
of cooseiving the surplus. As you
are jwell a war *, there is great
waste of fruits and vegetables in
our State, This can be saved to a
gieat extent by canning the sur
plus. Our blackbery crop alone, if
conserved, would be an important
matter. We must aho save all sur
plus tomatoes, sweet corn, okra
beans, peas, ctbbage (in |the form
ot krau } peaches, plums, etc
I want to ask that you 'purchase
and furnish each high or central
school in you parish with a can
ning outfit; this outfit to be used
by the pr.ncipal. or someone desig
naied by him. or her, not only to
demonstrate but to be used in can
ning the surplus ftuits and vegeta
bies of the pnrons and neighbors
of the schools. This can be none
on the toll or percentage basis, In
this way the party in charge can
make a nice salary as well as well
as show a patriotic spirit, and if
you desire you can demand a per
centage of the toll Jto compensate
the parish for the expenses of the
canning outfit
In my opniou you will not only
render a great service temporarily
to the people of your parish, but
you will be giving them a practi
cal education that will be of pntold
benefit in years to come
Please take this matter up'at
your earliest convenience a ad give
il earnest consideration
Yours truly,
Harry D. Wrfccn.
