Uhbllshed Semi-Weekly on Tuesday and Friday by ¶.ROSEN A ALPHA, . Proprietors. ubscrtption $1.00 a Year, Payable in Advance. EMtered as secend class matter Sept S1907, at the Postoffice at Lafayette, M., under the Act of Congress of March L 1897. TUESDAY, JULY 30, 1912. Is It feasible to start a number of small industries in Lafayette? That s a question that should be taken up by the organized business men of lafayette. A half a dozen small fac tories here would mean a big boost to the city and because of the in rease in values, in business and in ,Opportunities for employment, the matter is certainly worth thorough consideration. When the tax in favor of the New Iberia, Lafayette and Northwestern was under discussion there was lots a talk in favor of sewerage, street bIprovement, fire protection, etc. The .alilroad tax was turned down, now .hat is the matter with some of hoose who. advocated local improve agets getting busy and giving the people a chahance to vote on the im pWoveJents they considered so badly lsdede7 Public sentiment in England is turning strongly in favor of the dock Workers now on strike, on account of the evidences of the frightful suffer lag of the strikers and their families. Thousands of the strikers and thejs families prayed publicly a f. zw days ago for the death-.r1,lord Devenport, who as c atan of the Port of Lon doe. ,efuses to move an inch towards a settlement of the strike. Deven port is one of the old school "cap tains of industry" who believe that success by the strikers would under mine the foundations of government. The world moves but men of Deven port's class don't. Labor leaders in England, France and German, it is said, are negotla tin to check the European race for naval supremacy. The plan is to try politeal pressure and if that falls, hen resort to general strikes. The hurdhn of armament is becoming too heavy and the limit must sooner or later be reached. The laboring class ~on whom the heaviest burdens fall have beceme restive and they seem t. believe the limit has already been lstehed.

A little garden at the back of the house will work wonders in reducing your living costs-a few chickens will also help. Can't do these things when you're rent ing because you lack inspiration and either a garden or chickens must have careful attention. If you build a frame house you can start with only a few rooms and always add onto it when the fami ly grows, and by the time your sons and daughters are large enough to take notice you will have a home respectable enough in size and appearance to make them feel pretty proud of "Mommer and Daddy."

FIRST SCORE FOR THE MAJOR Man of Law Wasted Time In Contem. " plation, but His Opponent Was Quick to Act. There lived at one time, in the fash- , -eable quarter of Dublin an eminent lawyer who afterwards came to ocou W a position on the Judicial beach. He was a man of high professional attainments but of testy and irritable emper. His nest door neighbor was retired major, noted for the eccen riclty of his babits. Between thatwo here was anything but a friendly feel na and they did all in their power to anoy and harass each other. One Ig-ht, memorable in Ireland as 'The right of the great storm," the major's I ihimneys were blown down. Crash e hey went through the roof of the law. 1 er's house and thence down through * lee after boor, carrying havoc in t heir course. The man of law was In rI good humor as he contemplated the c lestruction, and what made matters worse was that It was the major's 1I himney that had occasioned the rreck. His mind was actively en aged in devising some process by hrich he could get satisfaction from is arch enemy, when this miasive ar Ived from the major: d "Send me back my bricks immediate- 1 r or I'll put the matter in the hands t t an attorney." In Thankfulness. INotwithstanding all that I have uftered, notwithstanding all the pain and weariness and anxiety and sor row that necessarily enter into life. and the inward errings that are worse than all, I would end my record with a devout thanksgiving to the great author my being. For more and more am I unwilling to make any gratitude to him what is commonly called "a thanksgiving for mercies,"-for any benefits or blessings that are peculiar to myself, or my friends, or indeed to any man. Instead of this I would have it to be gratitude for all that be longs to my life and being-for Joy and sorrow, for health and siclkness. -_r success and disappointment, for rirto and for temptation, for life and death; because believe that all Sseast tor rood.-Orvlle Dewey.

May his dear little wife be u the joy of his life and never kick up 0 a racket. May she do all she can to please her old man and mend up his p old ragged jacket."
