Get the smile that wont wear off, that is better tian : bath in the fountain"of vouth. T'l! f dlow who has not a cent in the vorld is ne-:er worried with :hougihts of a good in estmenit. The colorLd man next to shoctin~ ing "craps" would rather ride on a train.than any other past-time. - It is a good thing that our local belles have suddenly taken a fancy for loud and gaudy colors, or we would not be aware that Mardi Gras is coming. The H-oly Book says that a man must ,win his bread by the sweat of his brow," but, that it is just what the average man objects to. Don't be silly. You might think that you are killing time but are not. It's a sure thing that time will event aally kill you. Because your friend writes to you on the note paper of a leading hotel, is,ulo proof that he is stopping there. If you can't talkl to your friends without telling them your troubles it it better that you keep silent. About the only individual who does not object to taxes is the man who does not own a cent of property. A writer says that if Adam had lived until today, he w-,uld not have the money that Rockerfeller has, if he had made twenty-five dollars every day of his life. Maybe that is meant to prove that Adam was bcnest. Much has been said of the man who does not support his home paper, but if the paper is not deserving of support how can you hlamar him. I, should be the aim of those engagtd in the publishing of, newspapers to make the home paper so interesting that it will compel every one to want TO CURE A COLD IN ONE DAY Take Laxative Bromo Quinirie Tablets.

We feel that you are, and that with the glorious prospects ahead you will be willing:to do your share to wards the work. Some may think that they cannot do anything. Ev ery one can do something in the work. If you own any property that is idle and unproductive, it should be your duty and ~onr pleasure to dispose of it at a reasonable figure and thereby give some one an opertunity to come in and help in the work. Put your price on it and turd It over to some reliable real estate agent to sell for yon, thereby helping all. We want more people and more capital, but unless we are willing to make it pos sible for the stranger to buy property, we 'cannot expect him to settle among us, nor to invest. Consider this matter seriously and then act for the best interests of all concerned. The advice of this paper to every land owner who has property for sale in Vermilion parish is to list the lands with some competent enterprising and wide-awake real estate agent, at a price that will enable him to interest prospective investors. In this way you will serve a three-fold purpose, namely: You will dispose of your property, you will help to build up the community and you will aid, fbe real estate agent in maintaining a list of properties with which to catch the attention of men in other states who are seeking new locations. Then, too, you will be enabled to learn if you have set a fair valuation upon your property. A. Great Sunday Magazine.
