The Shreveport Times, commenting on the Gueydan-Broussard contest in this district, says: "Ordinarily the pe )ple of this con gressional district would not be es pecially interested in the contest be ing waged in the third district, but this year they are interested and they are watching the contest between Messrs. Gueydan and Broussard al most as closely as that in their own section. "This interest is due, of course, to the fact that Mr. Gueydan, recently a candidate for lieutenant governor on the good government league ticket, attained such a wide poularity over the state, and to the further fact that Mr. Broussard has already been elec ted to the senate and will take his seat in 1915, to which time another election as representative would car ry him over. "We had hoped that Senator-Elect Broussard would see the force of the arguments that were made by his friends from over the state, and that he would decline to run for the lower 'house this year, but he has, instead, listened to the entreaties of his po litical intimates in the third district and has entered the race against' Henri L. Gueydan. It was our opia ion that Mr. Broussard, after receiv ing the endorsement of the demo crats of the entire state in the sena torial primary, should retire from con gress for the next two years and de vote his time to preparation for the larger service-that he should try to get out of the "old rut" into which he has fallen as a representative of the "sugar district." "However, the politicians of the third district didn't want Broussar4 ,to pursue this course. They knew that if Broussard did not enter the race for congress Gueydan would most certainly be elected, his popu larity having been evidenced in the fight for the lieutenant governorship a few months ago. 'he situation was up' to Broussard in this fashion: "You are the only mail in the district who can beat Oueydan NOW; two years hence it is possibb that his prestige and popularity will have waned to some extent, and then there will be a chance for one of us." We have -heard several mentioned as possible successors to Broussard in 1915, in case he is re-elected this fall, but can not say who will "inherit" his seat in'the lower house when the time comes for him to "go up higher." Ru mor has it that Hon. John Marks of Assumption is slated for the place M r. Marks didn't feel that he was ~uite ready to measure lances with G'ueydan this year '.The Journal was one of the first of many newspapers that suggested to Mr. Broussard the impropriety oil making the race for the lower house again this year, after having been elected to the upper body, and we are still of the opinion that 'Cousin Bob" made a mistake when he listen ed to the "sugar" politicians of his own bailiwick instead of the voice of the whole state raised in opposition to his present course It he should be defeated by Mr. Gueydan, which is possible, it will necessarily impair his standing when he does reach the senate in 1915. Mr. Gueydan is a fighter, and he Is going to push Broussard closely in the third district Gueydan's popularity, his prestige as the candidate of the good govern ment league for lieutenant governor, is, clean record in the senate--all of these tiings make him a formid able opponent.' And, added to this, is the fact that Broussard has split with Governor Hall over the complex ion of the Lotibiana delegation to the Baitim convntion-the breach be hag attended by much litterness, as fg will mnaemsber who attended the i t mm~tL ·- "We would much have preferred that Broussard retire from the lower house voluntarily, and we should re gret to see him humiliated by a de feat at this time, yet we cannot help indulging the hope that Henri L. Gueydan will be rewarded by the people of the third distri, by an election to congress." TAX COMMISSION. Plans to Abolish Office of Assessor. Baton Rouge, La., July 25, 1912.-If plans now being framed by members l in the tax commission are worked out I it is highly probable that the special E session will receive recommendations c for the abolition of the office of as- r sessor throughout the parishes and of the board of assessors in New Or- p leans. y There are 70 of these officials and it t is urged that as the matter of realty d and personal property assessments for local purposes do not concern the ti state, this work be turned over to the police juries and city councils. c The assessments on property in the purview of taxation will be in the C hands of the proposed tax comm!s o sion. Speaker Thomas, Robert Butler and c Robert Roberts are all three worki:g y on proposals aimed to carry this idto some definite form. si Sen. Well and Representative Price introduced into 'the noon session of b the full commission rival resolutions si for the taxation of bacheiorr. No full committee sat this morning, but a number of sut-committees al worked, and the clerical force of the committee on statistics and budget Ii was busy all morning as It has been busy for the past three days collating and arranging the data on available a taxable data. To-day the committee or assess- a meats, exceptions and exemptions re- y. ported on the mineral resources of h the state, having especially in view a the data discovered concerning the a] $5'000,000 net income of the Union ti Sulphur company, which has been tl protesting against a ten-million as sessment. Small Blas. Saturday morning about ten o'clock an alarm of fire was sounded occa sioned by a small blaze at the home of a colored woman by the name of Andurs occupying a,house belonging to Mr. Chas. Muller in the back ot the Methodist parsonage. She was cleaning some clothes with g.aso!iun and smoking at the same time wnen suddenly the gasoline vapor caught fire and burned her bed and her dress. The fire was extinguished before do ing any further damage. The fire de partment as usual was promptly on the spot. FIRST EXCURSION Of the Season to Galveston and Re turn Over the Southern Pacific.

This cockerel has a habit of ranitng up his feathers during feeding 0 time, and as he was about twioe as o tat as the-rest of the fowls, his owner decided to watch him and to try to * end out the cause of his queer be * bavior. One day, as the fowls seuan tered off after being fed, the rooster carried his portly self to a secluded place by the good pile, and shook t4 himself vigorously; iwhereupon down fell more than half a pint of grain a which his ruffled feathers had caught = at feeding time. This he proceeded to eat at his leisure. As he continued to ruffle his feathers and to saunter off to the wood pile after meals, and S gained in size daily, hil owner had every reasan to believe that the roos ter had more than his share of com- c Inao chicken sense.

Lafayette' Motor Car Co., Ltds,: C --- Inconsiderate Knot. The drydocking of the schooner .br. ester, which put in at San Francisco the other day in distress revealed the feat that the Ieak, the source of the schooner's distress, was merely a knothole. The knot in one of the bot tom planks had fallen out, leaving a hole an inch wide by one and one. half inches long. To keep out the wa ter that came through this knothole the Forester's pumps were kept going night and day and the vessel arrived with ten feet of water in its hold. The deertion of its hole by this faithless knot In.4;-Lkd the lives of the schoos er's crew and i,.!ved owners and underwriters in an expense of moes than $1,000. The hole has been plugged up, and as this is all that ailed the Forester the schooner will proceed on its voyage as soon as the cargo has been reloaded.

One night when Viola Allen was plaring Parthenia in "Ingomar.'" she once leaned pensively against a set piece and soliloqulsed sadly: "What sudden change has come upon the world!" On the instant the set piees overturned with the actress, leaving only one sandaled foot projecting l. sight of the amused spectators. Dressed Chicken. She wanted to surprise her husband with a chicken dinner, but after she had gone out into their little chiclea run and captnred a toothsome-looking young rooster there, she lost her nerve. She simply couldn't bear to hand it the aze. There was a small bottle of chloroform in the house, however, en she decided to prepare his roostership for the oven via the anaesthesia route. He succumbed quickly, but to her horror he recovered consciousness as soon as she had finished plucking him. Stricken with reagri then, she clother his naked form in a hastily made suit of white lannel, that fitted him like a regular "varsdty made" gar. meat. Then she turned him out into the chicklen run again. Edlters insist upon hsppy endings of stories nowadays, so the remainder of this tale is better left untold.
