La l -i BORING FOR OIL Work' Conmmenced on Ramsey Tract Monday Morning J. B. Chaffe, manager of Rose Hill refinery, who is in charge of the Ramsey Development Com pany's oil operations here, in forms us that the work of drilling on Ramsey well No. I was begun Monday morning and will be carried through to completion as rapidly as possible. The well is located about one and a half miles from Rose Hill and six and a half miles from Abbeville. To reach the place it is necessary to -walk the last few hiundred yards, as no road has been built to the site of the well.' We give this information for the benefit of those who de sire to witness the drilling, as there will no doubt be large num bers of persons from this vicinity visit the place while the drilling is going on.' Visitors can drive nearly to the well, and can con veniefitly walk the remaing dis tanee. The finding of oil in this parish will mean a great deal to Abbe ville and the parish at large and local interest in these operations is very great. From this field; if oil is found, both water and rail facilities for shipment can be had at once, putting the promoters in shape to compete with any of the oil fields of the country. Governor Blanchard is not yet certain that he will attend the inaugral ceremonies at Washing ton because of the difficulty of rounding .up a sufficient number of his colonels to give Louisiana a properly spectacular appearance in the parade. .The governor has set the ' mininmum at twenty-live, and apprehension is felt that the I cold footed stallf will not r'ife to) the ocicasion. We feel iinpelld I to remark that in the line of shedding the glamour of glory and gold lace over fair Louisiama, the governor's staff are lobsters. -a ke Charles American. e programme was announced for the GOrand Lodge of Loulesi.n Odd Jellow. as BDaun Bouge, March 7-8. -I GOOD ROADS i ovement Being Agitated by State W Agricultural Board We are in receipt of the fol Slowing circular letter, which is self explanatory: Hon. President and Members Police Jury: The Louisiana State Board of Agriculture and Immigration has interested itself in the Good Roads movement, with regard, to which the people throughout the entire state are being aroused, and has secured the co-operation of Ron. Martin Dodge, director of the Office of Public Road In quiries, U. 8. Department of Ag. riculture, Washington, D. C., who has assigned Mr. Charles T. Harrison, special agent and as pert, and his assistant, Mr. E. W. Sheets, road expert in the same office, to demonstration work in this 'icinity, yhich is to begin as fn i as the road building machinery and materials arrive. Object-lesson roads, that run through the grounds of the Louis iana State University and A. and M. College, will be constructed under their supervision, with the student body doing the entire work. Mr. Harrison will deliver a series of lectures to the cadets, explaining the best methods of constructing, surfacing and I draining of roads, material most suitable for the. work, etc., having I the cadets familiarize themselves s in handling teams, machinery, etc., and will teach them how to take apart, put up, repair and c handle the machinery to the best advantage. It has been decided that it t would be an opportune timie, I while the work is going on, to a have a Good Roads convention, t and later a call will be issued and v the time and date fixed, to which c you are asked, and will be cor dially* invited by the governor, h to send live, progressive, repre- I sentative .delegates to the. con- h vention, with a view of reorgan- C izing the State Good Roads As sociation, discussing the subject C of good roads, and for the pur t pose of bringing about an organ- p ized- and determined effort to ( pass a law creating a highway a commissioner in the interest of v improved highways, and more a economic expenditure of road ti funds throughout the parishes. The convention will be asked to a appoint a special legislative cAln- a mittee for the purpose of drafti-g y, a sill for presentation at the F opening of the next general as sembl)y. It is expected that the attend ance will be large and that the delegates will include state leg islato.rs, delegatewe from ea':h parilsh, town labor organizations, progressive leaugues, farmers' organizations,also district judges, road connmissioners and repre .sentatives of the Office of Public Road Inquiries of the U. S. Department of Agriculture, var ious railroads and state board hf engineers, represen.tatives from the Highway Alliance, American Road Makers, -American Motor League, American Automobile Association, Ieague of A meri.:m, Wheelnian, Jeffersomn Memor:a! Road A osociation, Ncw. York and Chicago' Road Association and the National Good Roads Aeao ciatio.a We consider this a most impor tant meeting and that it will bring together road builders and those interested in highway im provement, from all parts of the country. During the progress of the ob ject-lesson work at the yniversity it is earnestly desired and hoped that members of parish boards, road overseers and all who have an interest in better roads, Will. consider themselves especially invited to visit the work, at any and all times. They will find the gentlemen in charge ever willing to explain the methods involved, and to import any other information they may possess re garding road work, as willing to receive information from others. Let us hope that you gentlemen are disposed to co-operate in this work, and will dome together for the exchange of ideas that will be helpful and inspiring. Very respectfully, J. G. LEE, Oommissioner. CLIPPED CO.MMENT. EXIT THE CREOLE. The Americanization of the Creoles in New Orleans is going on very rapidly, too rapidly perhaps. It is right and proper, o! course, that all folk born in the United States should feel American first, last, and all the time. Yet it is pitiful that the awakening of Creole youth to its Americanism should bring with it a spirit of utterdaisregard, of contempt almost, for the lan guage, customs and nationality of their forefathers. In truth, this spirit of disregard exists. A knowledge of French is studiously avoided by the younger genera tions, because to them familiarity with French looks like the badge of the alien, the foreigner. They prefer to converse in English,: ' however bad their English may be. The fact proves that the beginning of the end of "'ln race Creole" has come. J1 A few days ago two boys, Creoles undoubtedly,. judging by their appearance, were "scrap ping". in the French quarter. One of them had conquered his adversary, when the passer-by v ho' is telling this little story, approached and heard the victor thus apostrophize the other boy: "A-ha! I done lick you easy, mel A ha! I knowed' I could all time, yes! Youain'tnothing, you, excep' one dam' leetle Fr r enchman!"-Harlequin. THE STAPLE PRODUCTS The price of rice refuses to rise and oil has gone down to tci cents at the fieldbut it will be observed that the quotations on Kansas City sowhelly still remain alb)ut two bits for every fourteen ounces, paLked eggs from the North are thirty cents a dozen and lotatoes from Wisconsin and Colorado are at prices that put them in the class with diamond back terrapin and imported goOse livers.-r-Criwley Signal. ¶ ¶ MA1THEMATIcs ANI A' MORAL A WVesternnman who went home at 3 o'clock was shot three timnes by hli, wife.
