Mixth d'.tr'ic.. relative to the hya,.::zh carmpaigtn fhe plan is to call a meeting of police juries in all parishes where navigation is obstruct ed, probobly to be held at Lafayette, which is a central point, about the middle of November. My idea is to secure the adoption of some systemat Ic scheme so that the government money appropriated for this purpose may be irade permanently effective." Mr. Broussard said it had been final l ly determined that the route of the Intercoastal Canal between Bayou Ver milion and the Teche had been left to Col. Beach, also the matter of the right of way. "If possible," said the Iberia Con gressman, "we want to obviate the crossing of Cote Blanche bay and Vernitlion ','-" is our desire to make th's er inl.and canal, and not one subject to long stretches of onen water, where the craft that could use an inland waterway would not feel safe in venturing. This is the troumbe in making these open bays parts of the canal. We are also trying to oh viate the necessity of going through, White lake, in Vermilion, and Gran-, lake in Calcasieu parish.- The board of government engineers has agreed that it shall be an inland canal, and not an intercoastal canal, as has been talked. It was always my desire and intention that this should be an Inland waterway. All the legislation which I have secured has been looking to that end. "I am now convinced that this great canal system will come direct to New Orleans from Morgan City, via Houma. This means a great deal for New Orleans. The canal will be nine feet deep and 100 feet wide. It will be as fine a waterway as any in the state outside of the Mississippi river. It will be a shorter route from the Teche and the Vermilion than the -railroads offer. "Col. Beach will soon make a re port on the proposition to deepen Bayou Teche from six to twelve feet. It is believed his report will be favor able to the proposed project. "The dredge and snag boat provided for in the last rivers and harbors bill, to cost $35,000, for use in the Louisi ana territory, will be in commission in about fifteen days. We have $30,000 for operation, and the boat will go to work at once. It will start in on Bayou Vermilion and will make it a navigable stream all the way up to Lafayette:. Coagresman Broussard said the dredging in Bayou Plaquemine was progressing satisfactorily. For Rent. 8ix room house on Compress street, large yard, wood and ldeken house. Apply to Dr. Thos. B.

ALFRED HEBERT. Dialogue that is actually witty and situations that are ludicrously funny form the component parts of "When His Wife's Away." the merry comedy which the eccentric comedian, Mr. Robert, Dalton, and his company of laughmakers will present at the Jeffer son Theater on Tuesday, Oct. 26. "When His Wife's Away" was written by Charles T. Vincent, co-author of "The Man From Mexico," has been i;?!, ted ";he comae!ldy with the tickle,' and is a great big laugh from begin ning to end. Mr. Dalton is a comedy star whose work is receiving attention from capable critics and whose meth ods have been likened to William Col lier and the late Sol Smith Russell. He is at all times quiet and forceful and obtains his lau-, in a legirir.atc manner. The supporting company is sa;d to be an excellent one. The Cane Crop. Louisiana Planter.

What is now desired is cool, dry weather. Eightieth Anniversary. Last Friday was the eightieth an niversary of Judge J. G. Parkerson, and in the afternoon a number of his friends gathered at his home to felic itate him upon the occasion. The affair was quite i su-rprise to the Judge, who was not expecting aWy thing of the kind. Mrs. Mills, his daughter, served refreshments, and altogether the occasion was a most pleasant one. Those present were: Judge C. H. Mouton, C. D. Caffery, T. M. Blossat, S. R. Parkprson, C. M. Parkesron, J. G. Parkerson. Jr, Mid dlemas, G. C. Scarlette, Dr. G. A. Martin, Frank P. Davis, F. E.

During the meeting of the Inter coastal Canal convention held in Cor pus Christi. Texas., last week. the Corpus Christi Herald, in its retort of the meeting made the following mention of the canal which is being dug by the parish of St. Martin and town of St. Martinville. The predic tion made by the herald that the canal will eventually become a part of the main intercoastal canal has some reason perhaps. an.] It may 1e that St. Martinville's ent.-rprie will be rewarded by placing her on the main route of the Intercoastal Cana;, much to the great and growing benefit of the town. The Herald says: "State Senator T. .1. Labbe from St. Martinville, La.. represents a parish in Louisiana that is acting independ ently of goveYnment aid in digging a branch of the Intercoastal Canal. This branch, it is expected, will eventually be the main canal, offering a better and shorter route to New Orleans and the Mississippi river. The proposed canal will start from Bayou Vermil ion, which is a part of the govern ment project, and will (ross Bayou Teche at St. MartinviHe, thence to the chain of lakes that are connected to the Atchafalaya ricer. The towa of St. Martinville and the parish of St. Martin have voted five suecial taxes for the project and the dredges have already begun operations. Be sides giving a shorter route, this canal traverses the fertile cane lards of Bayou Teclie and will be used for transportation of cane to the mills and for the irrigation of rice farThs." Walden's Business College. We are in receipt of a letter from Prof. L. R. Walden, president of Wal den's Business College, Lake Charles, La., in which he states that his school is quite full and that new pupils are enrolling each week. He says that his $100 special offer saves the pupil from $100 to $200 on a complete busi ness and shorthand course. Walden's Business College is a high-grade in stitution, giving 1.b : tr gh r::! :rar tical training at low cost, and: nr:y otne desiring to take a business coirse should write the school for a cata logue and information.. Lord Northcliffe'a Enterprise. New Orleans States. Because the forests of Europe are practically denuded. British newspaper publishers are faced with the neces sity of doing everything possible to conserve the supply of avaidable ma terial foir print paper. The same con dition will soon confront the American publishers unless some satisfactory substitute for wood pulp is discovered, but so far such a discovery has not been made, though the work of experi mentation with the fiber of cotton stalks and other substances is still going on. Realizing the fact that wood pulp is needed and that the supply is con stantly growing less, Lord Northcliffe the owner of the London Times, has purchased more than two thousand square miles of forest land in New Foundland, where he has built the largest paper mills in the world for the purpose o fsupplying his own pub lications with white paper. He owns many newspapers and magazines which each year consume thousands of tons of paper, hence rather than depend on the market for an uncer tain supply he has invested more than $6,000,000 In a battery of mills which manufacture print paper solely for his own use. It is said that his New Foundland mills are the best equipped in the world; that they have the most im proved machinery; the facilities for the transportation of their products are perfect, and around the mills a town has been built for the conven ience of the operatives. So far as the future is concerned Lord Northcliffe has provided for himself and his publications, but there are not many publishers so fortunate as to be able to Invest $6,000,000 In mills merely to Sup$p their own needs.. Therefore it is to be hoped that a substitute for wood pulp in the manufaEture of print paper may soon be discovered, be cause in a very short time the prob lem of a suffiiet supply will become a serious one. y i Crir.irat Tern,- AH ý-..i---r..r a lr ..

When you make a present of a peri odical to a friend or a family you are really selecting a companion to in fluence them for good or ill during a whole year. If the acquaintances of your sons and daughters were to talk to them aloud as some periodicals talk to them silently, how quickly you would forbid the companionship! In thg one case as in the other, the best course is to supplant the injurious with something equally attractive and at the same time "worth while." A food can be wholesome and utterly distasteful. Reading can be made so, too. But the Youth's Companion not only nourishes the mind, but delights it, just like that ideal human associate whom you would choose. The Youth's Companion fills that place now in more than half a million homes. Can you not think of another family It which it is not now known where if would be joyfully welcomed? If the $1.75 for the 1910 volume is sent now, the new subscriber will be entitled to all the remaining issues of 1909. if desired, the publisher will hold these back or send them at Christmas time, together with the Christmas number and The Compan ion's new "Venetian" calendar for 1910, lithographed in thirteen colors and gold.

Many of us. no doubt. have enter. tained the popular idea that the American Indiars were dying out so rapidly thit they would soon be a vanished race. but the official figures in Washington show that this opinion is erroneous. It is not pretended that the Indians are increasing at a rapid rate, but at the present time there are more than 300.000 of them in the United States and there has been an increase in their number of about 40,000 in the last twenty years. It is the accepted belief in Wash ington that the increase in Indian population is due to the efforts of the gove: nm.crt to uplift the red man ýýtt . ,, ;, n1!," .:-; le ( ) o:" t' ef tlw r barisnm.

It has often been charged that the results did not justify the govern uent's expenditure for the ruainte nance of indian schools, and that af ter graduation many of the students returned to their respective tribes on ly to lapse into barbarism as a result of the championship and the uinflu enceof the customs of their people. There have been some cases .of this kind, no doubt, but the government records show that the majority of the students become educated and civil ized to a point that makes them self sustaining and useful citizenl hence the Indian schools have justified the support and care the government has given them. Pie Social. . The pie social given at Dr. Tol on's home Friday afternoon by the girls of the Home Mission Society was quite a pleasant affair and a financial success. About ten dollars were re alized for the benefit of the Or phans' Home in Ruston, La. A meeting of the society is called for Saturday aft ernoon at the home of Mrs. P. B. Totr"an.
