Physicians and cooking experts have
long been seeking something to replace

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

years for the advancement,' keeping

the only parish in our State having
1e such a poor excuse for a temple of

d flection on the members of our Police
e Jury. 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

date court house.

t BURKE SCHOOL CLOSES,
, Entertaining Program Rendered.
h Supt. Wright and Members of the
Lafayette Band Attended.
y The closing exercises of the Burke
e Graded School in the Second Ward of
d this parish took place Thursday night,
I and a number of people from this city,

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
