The "Digeartble" Shortening.
Lard is the most commonly used cook ing fat, yet not 10 per cent of the food cooked with lard digests naturally and easily; the other 90 per cent, instead of nourishing the body, merely clogs the digestive organs. Physicians and cooking experts have long been seeking something to replace lard, and repeated tests have finally demonstrated that Cottolene, a vegetable oil cooking fat, is not only pure, nutri tious and wholesome as olive oil, but is even more economical than lard. Such noted authorities as Mrs. Rorer and Marion Harland both recommend Cot tolene as "much more healthful than CRIMINAL COURT i Continued from Page One. ing liquors to minors and also against selling tobacco and cigarettes to min ors and this law, like all other laws, ought to be strictly enforced, and thu Court calls your special attention to the provisions of said law. Our public education system is a great benefactor to our growing young generation; it affords them means of education so as to prepare them in af ter life to compete with this world'a strife and struggle ,and therefore, those having the distribution of the public. funds cannot do too much in the way of appropriating money for the maintenance and proper support of our public schools ,and, gentlemen of the Grand Jury, I am proud to say that the people of our parish view the S question of education in this light, for it is only a few months past three mills on the dollar upon our total as sessment was voted for a period of ten years for the advancement,' keeping and maintaining our public school sys tem in our parish, and said tax was carried by a goodmajority of the qual Sfiled voters and property owners.

A court house is badly needed; e for years back the attention of the Po :e lice Jury has been called to that fact, , and yet they have not heeded or taken - notice, which previous judges and my is self have called their attention to, con h cerning the court house, and the time d has arrived and I call the attention of n the Police Jury to seriously reflect over the matter and to take immedi ate action in the premises. Previous Grand Juries for years back in every report made by them to the Court have called the attention to the Po lice Jury of the necessity and imme diate necessity of a new court house, and I ask of you to again remind, call to the attention of the Polic Jury of - the urgency of immediate taking steps s, to the building of a modern and up to date court house. o In your deliberations as grand jur ors, nine of you can find a true bill or a not a true bill, as the case may be, in other words, it does not require that the twelve of you be of the same opin ion, if nine of you vote one way or ' the other, it is sufficient. Your fore e, man must administer the oath to all te the witnesses who appear before you n to testify; you can adjourn for three )r days without leave or permission of rt the Court, but for a longer time, it is n necessary to get the order from the y Court. The district attorney is your e legal advisor upon all questions in your Grand Jury room but when you e have heard all the evidence on any s- question presented before you, and n you are about to take a vote as to .g whether or not a bill is to be returned, you must do so outside of the hear Sing and presence of the district at - torney; in other words, whenever you take a vote on any question the dis trict attorney must leave the Grand Jury room. All indictments that you return in ' Court, must be drawn up by the dis. t trict attorney signed by him in his of r, ficial capacity, and also signed by your r foreman officially as such, with these "' words, "A true bill or not a true bill," 1- as the case may be. t BURKE SCHOOL CLOSES, , Entertaining Program Rendered. h Supt.

A play enti a 'tIed "The Vagabond,Y} was rendered, f- to Which admission was charged, and . this, 'with the receipts from the re l.freshments sold,- netted a i neat sum, t, which will go to improve the school. e Superintendent Wright outlined the r plan adopted by the School Board to [ establish in each ward of the parish Sagricultural high schools where the r boys of the rural districts may be a trained in the science 'and practice-of a agriculture and the, girls in domestic Why does Great Britian buy its oatmeal of us? Certainly it seems like carrying coals to Newcastle to speak of export ing oatmeal to Scotland and yet, every year the Quaker Oats Company sends hundreds of thousands of cases of Quaker Scotch Oats to Great Britian 1 and Europe. The reason is simple; while the English and Scotch have for centuries eaten oatmeal in quantities and with a regularity that has made them the f most rugged physically, and active t mentally of all people, the American has been eating oatmeal and trying all the time to improve the methods of 5 manufacture so that he might get that y desirable foreign trade. t How well be has succeeded would be seen at a glance at the export re ports on Quaker Scotch Oats. This brand is without a rival; is packed in regular packages, and in hermetically sealed tins for hot climates. 51 SCHOOL BOARD, Appropriate $250 for Summer School To Borrow $4,400 to Run Schools r the Term Out. The School Board met in regular session Saturday with all present ex r cept Dr. A. J. Comeaux. Dr. G. A. Martin and Judge O. P. 1 Guilbeau appeared before the Board and urged an appropriation of $250 to aid the nine weeks summer normal to be held here, which was appropri ated. e The Board decided to sign personal r notes for $4,400 to cover the deficit to finish the present school session. Supt. Wright was urged to hasten securing the title to the old High School, which reverted to the original D committee, and he reported that he expects the matter to be consummated now very soon. A resolution was passed, allowing each member $10.00 to attend the meeting of the Louisiana School Board Association and State Teach ers' Convention at Baton Rouge April 1 14, 15 and 16. The Democrat, the official organ, having 'been sold, it was necessary to r select another. The Advertiser offer ed to serve as official journal at $10 a month, and the Gazette offered for legal rates. The Gazette was chosen. Supt. Wright was authorized to visit the Ruston, Natchitoches, and Baton Rouge Summer Normals to secure teachers to fill vacancies in this par ish. Several minor matters were attend ed to and bills approved. Why "Potter's Field" for Beggar. It is not because the beggar fails ti enake money that he finally lands ia the -potter's field.
