Lafayette Chamber of Commerce, less than six months in active opera tion, has pmade good, has become an institution respected by every citizen. Many of the members are already getting benefits exceeding the amount of their annual dues. Are you get- 1 ting your share? If you are a re ceiver or shipper of freight or ex press you should be. Only 16 of the members have as yet started to put ' their freight bills through the office and Manager Martin estimates their i are five times that number who 1 should be making use of it. Even with the few using it the freight over charges the past quarter exceed $500. In general freight reductions the benefit of which accrues to everybody, t It K. C. INITIATE 38 CANDIDATES Impressive Ceremonies at Church and at Home-Dance and Lunch eon Tendered Guests. Sunday was a grand occasion for the Knights of Columbus, when 38 candidates were initiated into the or der by the Opelousas-Vicksburg team. Some three hundred Knights were present, strong delegations coming in from all surrounding towns. The visitors were met by the local Knights at the depot, where a procession was formed and proceeded to the Home where the loca candidates were taken into rank. The procession then con tinued to St. John's Catholic church where solemn High Mass was cele brated. Rev Twellmeyer preaching a most eloquent and instructive sers mon on the order of Knights of Co lumbus, emphasizing Christian Edu cation, Christian Charity and Chris tian Conduct as principles for the or der. The choir led by pastor Rev. Teurlings rendered Millard's Mass most effectively and the following par ticipated: Misses Laurence and Alice Campbell, Miss Agnes Roy, Miss Pau line Calllouet and Mrs. F. V. Mouton soloists; Pierre Gerac, P. J. Voorhies tenor soloists and F. V. Mouton base solo. In the afternoon the exemplication of the three degrees of Knighthood took place at the Home and nearly forty candidates were initiated. Lat er during the evening the ladies serv ed luncheon on the High School square to the Knights and their visitors. Meantime the young folks enjoyed themselves at a dance in the Home to the excellent music of the Lafay ette Concert Band. The day was glorious and everyone enjoyed the oc casion to the fullest extent R. C. Greig With Adve'tlser. We have engaged the services of R. C.

Some record for an insti tution not yet out of swaddling clothes. Nor is this all. The farmers have been induced to plant 125 acres of Irish potatoes this year where only a nominal amount was planted last year or any year previous. For the estimated yield of 8,000 bushels a minimum price of $1 has been guaranteed on truck here. The acreage of sweet potatoes has been quadrupled over that of pre ceeding years. Altogether nearly $50,000 will be brought into the par ish from these hitherto unprofitable crops. But if the record of accomplish ment seems full, what of the future? Almost certain is the establishment of a boat line between Lafayette and New Orleans, through which freight charges wiJl be still farther reduced. Many farmers who were dilatbry this year have given assarance of their membership in the growers' and marketing clubs next year. Much publicity has ben obtained for the community through the act tivity of the membership and pros spectors looking for homes re com mende ng to come in to look ovar the country. But beyond all this in importanse Is the spirit of co-operation and har monious work tpr community devel otument which has taken hold of all classes of our citizenry. Hopeful ness and consideration for the be liefs and undertakings of others has to a large degree supplanted the lit tle factionalisms of other days and "knockers' have become so scarce that a noted resolution for their do portation introduced by that livest of wires, John parry, the night of ianza t la3 June, has been al most "forgotten.

DEMANDS, h President to Ask Authority to Use Force Which Congress is Ready to Grant. r . 8 President Victoriana Huerta of Mexico has flatly refused to accede L. to the unconditional demand of the 9 United States that he salute the I American flag in reparation for the P arrest of American bluejackets at I Tampico April 10. Negotiations have I been pending since then, but Huedta would only offer to comply provided the United States would guarantee in writing to return the salute. Pres. dent, and it is expected that he will Congress today, asking for permission to use armed force. Congress is said to be ready to back the presi dent, and it is expected that he wil be given the authority asked for. The president was expected to ask the Senate to pass the volunteer act already passed by the House provid ing for pressing into regular ser vice the militia of the various states. Special 3:30 p. m. The president was before Congress at 3 p. m., but no action had men taken. A bill had been introduced giving the president $50,000,000 to use as he saw best. All of the~ bat tleships are ,expected to be at Tam pico and Vera Cruz tonight. There appears no doubt but that Congress will give President Wilson a free hand.

Uubucib. for The Advhrtlhar I WOMAN versus THE COW. r It is related that many years ago in a pioneer town out West there was a debate in the school house- on this remark able subject: s "Resolved, That for a man on a backwoods farm a cow is of greater value than a woman." The debate ran along about even until the affirmative speaker made this remarkable argument. He claimed that "value" meant money and nothing else, and that, if the crops failed and the man could not pay interest, he could sell the cow, while the woman would be an additional expense. This won the debate for the cow! The judge made his decision almost as follows: "My sympathy is with the wimmin, but the money goes on the cow, for, as we all know, sympathy don't pay any mortgages or buy groceries." A woman with her face shining with righteous indignation jumped up in the audience and told how she had, with her own hands supported a lazy husband and fed a cow and five chil dren, but the judge decided that her argument did not count, as she was not one of the selected debaters! Money certainly goes much further than "sympa thy" in all the& ordinary dealings of this world, and women in general will find it of advantage in many ways to have bank accounts of their own. This good bank appreciates the business and pat ronage of women. .... THIE.... FIRST HAT/ORAL BANK JEFFERSON THEATRE (Safest and Most Comfortable Plaes in Town.)

WOMAN'S O1FFhAlt T MEETING TUESDAY To be Held in Gordow Hotel Parlor -Miss Jean Gnitpn to Be Pres. ent. Tuesday afternoon at four o'clock the suffrage workers of Lafayette will meet with Miss Jean Gordon, the noted 'New Orleans suffragist in the Tpariorse.of the Gordon hotel foer the *organy ateon, of a ,alub where the sentiment in favor of the ..fr chisement of womankind can be giv en concrete. and adequate expression. Miss Gordon is so well known in Lafa'ette that any description of her character or work would be trite, and her two appearances here last week but served to endear her to our people, those inimical to, as well as those who favor the cause she so brilliantly represents. The problem itself is one of the livest the people of this country have to face and we can imagine no happier auspices un der which the local campaign could be launched than under Miss Gor don's supervision. All those at all interested should be at the meeting tomorrow afternoon. W. E. BOWEN FORMER CITIZEN OF LAFAYETTE DEAD. W. E. Bowen, a former resident of this city and well known to many here, died in Kansas City, Mo. Thursday evening as the result of in juriesreceived in a railroad wreck several weeks ago.
