Published Semi-Weekly on Tuesday and Friday by L.RO8EN & ALPHA,. Proprietors. Subscription $1.00 a Year, Payable in Advance. Entered as second class matter Sept. 1, 1907, at the Postofice at Lafayette, La., under the Act of Congress of March 3. 1897. FRIDAY, JANUARY 24, 1913. The state l]w against spitting around public buildings goes into ef fect March 1 and the minimum fine is ten dollars and costs, all amounting to twenty dollars. Dr. Dowling says he is going to have the law enforced, so better begin practicing now so you won't spit in the wrong place. Dr. Dowling, President of the State Board of Health, has started an agi tation for a general registration of births and deaths all over the state, and wants the Police Juries of each Parish to assist by giving ten dollars per thousand inhabitants to pay the registrar for making the registration. The move is a good one and it is strange that it has not been done long ago. Vital statistics are valuable in many ways, and in the case of the state particularly, for it would demon strate that our death rate is as low as most places and lower than a great many, and that Louisiana is not a ma laria swamp and alligator hole like some northern people, otherwise in telligent. actually believe. A Suggestion-There are a number of deserving young girls in the parish who would like to attend the Indus trial Institute, but who are unable to pay the expense of board in town. It would be a worthy act for as many as can to offer a home to these girls while attending the Institute and let them pay for their board in a meas ure by what assistance they could give before and after school. We are sure Supt. Alleman could name some girls who would appreciate such an offer. Disliked the Flavor. A kindergarten teacher in Philadel phia fell in love at first sight with a cherubic youth of four who was bropght to her for instruction. "Oh, what a dear!" exclaimed the young woman. "Have you any broth ers like yourself?" "Yes'm," replied the cherub; "me and Tommy and Dick. I like Dick best." "And why do you like Dick best?" "'Cause he did me a great favor. He bit Tommy's leg." "But, dearie," protested the teach er, "why should you want Dick to bite Tommy's leg?" "'Cause I hate the taste of Tom my's leg," explained the cherub. GENUINE TRIBUTE TO WOMAN Robert G. Ingersoll's Eloquent Appro. elation of the Qualities of the Gentler Sex. It takes 100 men to make an en campment, but one woman can make a home. I not only admire woman as the most beautiful object ever created, but I reverence her as the redeeming glory of humanity, the sanctuary of all virtues, the pledge of all perfect quali ties of heart and head. It is not just nor' right to lay the sins of men at the feet of women. It is because women are so much better than men that their faults are considered greater. A man's desire is the foundation of his love, but a woman's desire is born of her love. The one thing in this world that is constant, the one peak that rises above all clouds, the one win dow in which the light forever burns, the one star that darkness cannot quench is woman's love. It rises to the. greatest heights, it sinks to the lowest depths. It forgives the most cruel injuries. It is perennial of life and grows in every climate. Neither coldness nor. neglect, harshness nor cruelty can extinguish it. A woman's love is the perfume of the heart. This Is the real love that subdues, the earth; the love that has wrought all miracles of art; that gives us music all the way from the cradle song to the grand closing symphony that bears the soul away on wings of fire. A love that is greater than power, sweeter than life and stronger than death.-Robert G. Ingersoll. Authors and Their Books. At the dinner given by the Harper people to Arnold Bennett just before he sailed for England, a dinner which was attended by many of the literary lights that live in or near New York, a discussion came up as to whether In this day of the rapid output of lit erature a man could live by his books. Mr. Bennett said he was sure that many authors could, and he instanced the case of a young author he knew I·n London who was so hard up that he could not get enough cash to pay for his dinner. An idea struck him. He visited his publisher's and there asked for six, copies of his latest novel, which was priced at five shillings, ordering that1 the books be charged to his account.. This was done. With the volumes under his arm he visited a second hand book dealer in the neighbor hood, and, as the books were perfect, ly new, he managed to sell the six - them for ten shillings, with which . he had a rattling good dinner , ~ an 4vening at the theater. "Oh, yes," said Mr. Bennett, "even the heualget author can live by his S b he has imiblisjed ma CRIMINAL ASSAULT Charge Made Agai'nst Prominent Citi .zen of the Second Ward, Who Pos itively Denies the Charge. Tuesday Voorhies Foreman, a prom inent citizen of the second ward, was arrested by Deputy Sheriff Albert Bo nin on a warrant Issued by Justice Al fred Breaux of Duson, charging that on January 15, Mr. Foreman had made a criminal assault on Mrs. C. O. Son nier, the wife of a tenant on his place. He was brought to Lafayette and re leased on a bond of $1000, fixed by Judge Campbell and executed by Dep uty Sheriff Saul Broussard. Mr. Fore man absolutely denies that he com mitted the crime charged to him. lie had ordered Mr. Sonnier off his place some time previous and unless it was a piece of spite work he could not ac count for it as he had positively not given any provocation for it, and he felt sure he could clear himself of the charge at the proper time.

OVERWORK IS GREAT FOLLY Words of Two Prominent Men That Should be Considered by Every Busy Person. Woman can rail at the folly of overwork and she gets scant heed. Here is what two prominent men have to say about it. Whether they prac tice as they preach is best known to themselves, but the sentiment is all right. Chauncey Depew has said: "I do not believe in overwork, and.the body can not endure it." Kirkham, in his "Recources," writes: "If we do not play enough it is be cause we are overfond of business and because the modern ideal is, not a well-rounded man of elevated mind, healthy body and divers resources, but a rich man, a man of property-of one resource only. Another reason is, play implies leisure, and leisure is the cardinal heresy against the religion of trade, the dogma of business. The orthodox view is a life of constant ef fort, followed by retirement and rest. The fruit of that doctrine is a host of prematurely old men, synical, dyspep tic, nervously depleted, without re sources, but with ,money; that is to say, dead men." If instead of nagging, the worrying wife or mother has those two para graphs stuck in the mirror of the man whose overwork is rankest folly, shq may make an impression before the overstrain has earned its sure penalty of a bad breakdown. Must Be Warned. The Prussian building code has just received a rather remarkable amend ment. It provides that the hluts for the use of laborers connected with building operations must be suitably warmed between November 1 and April 1-when the outside temperature reaches fourteen degrees, that is, eighteen below freezing. Women as Plumbers. From a note which appears in the columns of the Ironmonger it would appear that no fewer than 150 young women in New York are about to go to school to learn plumbing, car pentering and so forth. They seem to be thoroughly in earnest.
