Ti the Patruns f the St lisep Elactric Theatre : We wish to announce to our friends and patrons that failure to show the special feature, "Womanhood", which was to be shown under the auspices of the Red Cross, was due to the fact that this picture had been out of the New Orlear.s office since Thursday week, during which time it was being run in North Mississippi and Lake Providence. The last two theatres running this show reported the films in very bad condition, more especially the sixth and seventh reels, which we found to be in such condition that it was impossible to rnn them. This matter has been taken up with the Exchange and they have promised to secure a new print at the earliest pos sible date and to give us the flest booking on same. We cannot at this time name the date of exh;b:lion; we hope to be able to do so in the next ,ew days. We regret to have disap pointed our patrons, and appreciate toe hearty support tendered us. This picture w'1i be shown under the same arrangemeut with the Red Cross as previous'y ma-3. We trust that the public will give it the ppo, t that the character of the picti",e and the purpose for which it will be shown justiey. J. C. MACPHERSON, Mgr.

The Newell ton High School showed the biggest opening attendance, with 71 poples, while St. Joseph came next with 70 and Waterproof third with 55. All the public schools in the parish ere in flourishing condition and the 1911-18 session was everywhere begun under most favorable auspices.

While our school is not as large as 3 iome schools in the state we feel sere nat no community has more right to e proud of its high sobdol than ou-s. a There is a splendid spirit among toe I student body, and every thirg is wov ng off with the best ind:caions of ac- i omplishing great good this year. We rost that every parent will cooperate ally w'th the teachers and be'p the f >oys and egris in their wore, for with f hem chbootlife is as serious as the I treater things with the fathers and I le mothers, and the children need a nore sympathy in their efforts to pre are for Plfe in school than tIoey nso- a Il'y get from the average parent.
