It finally became a reality and has again passed out of existence as far as a Station is concerned. The new rumor is. that under the present Democratic regime we may, look forward to some patronage from our party, even though they will place .ugar on the free list. Let it be hoped that this rumor of reonwning the Naval Station will become a fact. Our Immigration Station is now opened and ready to take care of the first ship load of human freight. For .e ars did. we listen to rumors about our Im micration Station and now it is in existence. Let us also hope that our pres ent Democratic administration will take care of this for the party in the South. Ever since our ships went away there have been repeated rumors that "the ships ar"' coming back." We l.ve heard this for over ten years and as yet no mnt.t is s,n on the horizon, but there are some good indications, which are, that there are more ships of the Southern Pacific Company loading here now than there have been during the past years. We are also told by good authority that we may soon expet a resumption of the shipping that was lost to us years ago. Another rumor that is not yet substantiated is that the big W. G. Coyle tract, whit l was exploited by Peter S. Lawton, will again change hands and that some big enterprise will locate in our district. Let us hope also that this will come to pass. The fact that the Johnson Iron Works will remove their enormous shops to our district is now assured. Surveys are being made tentative to the erec tion of the big steel structure. The Grand Isle Railway has brought new capital into this territory. It asxtended and maintained the Algiers Electric Railway, all of which has brought money and work to our district. The merchants, during the past year, have had little to complain of and it is the universal opinion that the "hard times" have long passed and our district may again be smiled upon by generous Prosperity. Most of the Al glers people are willing to help an enterprise. There are a few who will help provided it does not injure their pocketbook, and there are also others who are willing to throw down a big industry for our district merely because they can not obtain an exhorbitant price for a piece of property. The sooner we rid" ourselves of this kind of pest the sooner will our district flourish. What we need now is a "pull together," and it will be but a short time when we will attract attention sufficient to cause the investor to prick his ears at our ad vantages. WEEKLY GRIND. BY THE PLAIN MAN. Manual Training. An effort is now being made to have a manual training school established in Algiers. This is a worthy movement and should have the hearty co-opera tion of the citizens of this town. Isaac Delgado, realizing that industrial training was of the first importance to the youth of our city, left most of his fortune for the establishment of a manual training school. His ideas in this respect were founded upon observation. While the ordinary courses of study which are offered in our public schools equip our children to a certain extent to meet the problems that are to come, nothing can be of more value to them than practical education-that is, to have the rudiments of some trade incul cated into them in their youth. Thus equipped, they are ready to meet and conquer the problem of living. Algiers, being divided from the main city by the river, is in a somewhat isolated condition. Some special provision should be made to provide this district with a malual training school. There are thousands of children here who would be benefited and made useful citizens. No investment that the city could make could bring greater returns, for the future of any great city lies in its coming citizenship. The citizens of our district should leave no stone unturned to have a manual training school located In Algiers. Nothing they have done or could do, would redound more to their benefit. The Tariff Question. Previous to the last presidential election, both the Democratic and Re publican parties made certain declarations in respect to the tariff. The Demo cratic party won at the polls on one plank alone in the platform-tariff re' vision downward. The people of this country had become convinced that high tariff meant high cost of living, and thus believing had voted in the party that promised immediate revision. President Wilson is trying hard to make the pledges of the party good. The extra session of Congress has been con vened, and the President has spoken his word. His tariff bill has been framed, and it is now up to the Congress. As usual, sectional feeling will enter much into the discussion of the tariff question; but the bill, in its present shape, leaves no room for sectional jealousy, as for one time at least, sections of the country have been eliminated in framing the bill. It is a tariff measure to the benefit of the whole people, and not for a particular class. Down here in Louisiana, we are particularly Interested in sugar. Accord. ing to the present bill, sugar will be on the free list in th'ee years. Our local press is making a loud howl against free sugar, as likewise our Democratic (?) congressmen and senators, who were elected on a "downward revision of tariff" platform. All of them are telling us that the sugar industry in thisestate will be ruined. Years ago these sugar planters received a bounty from ths government for raising sugar. Then somebody discovered that the bounty was an imposi tion, and had it repealed. The same cry that the sugar industry could not live was raised then when the bounty was taken away, yet the sugar industry in this state is on a firmer and better paying basis than it has ever been. One of our evening contemporaries says that nobody has grown rich in the Lonu: islana sugar industry. This is not so; most of the men who control our sugar industry are very wealthy men, and their wealth has been made out of sugar. One other little comment: FPor months and months we have been sending out literature on the fertility of our soil, and how many different crops can be raised on our land in one year. We have been inviting the Northern and Western farmers to sell out and come here where richs await them. Any: where from $500 to $1,500 an acre can be cleared according to these announce meats. Then why worry about sugar? What sugar planter clears anything like $500 an acre? It would be far better for the sugar planter to subdlvide his great plantation into small farms and reap the greater profit. His fruit, grain and truck crops would be more certain than sugar, and would bring greater returns. All the holler about sugar is bosh. When sugar has been finally placed on the free list, our planters will still be in business, and will be making money. The tariff bill now before Congress is for the benefit of the people, and any senator or congressman that opposes it in part or in whole lll have to answer to the people who gave him his job. Sectional feeding must be put aside, and the interests of the people given first consideration. the man with the education who gets the best position; not the man who left school in the fifth or sixth grade. Manual training is a sort of holding power in the schools. It gives boys a chance to use their hands while the brain is being trained in the element ary studies. If boys are to make a mark in the world to-day, they need to be better equipped than their forefathers. Ev ery advantage should be given them and manual training is one of the ad vantage% that leads to accuracy and precision. Mr. Burgis, a former pupil of Profes sor Rugan, then spoke along the same lines and urged the parents to do all in their power for their boys and one of the things that is in their power is to make the edhool board see the ae cessity of a manual training center in the Fifth District as well as In other districts4 SAssall at MeDonogh No. 4.

The frst Union lag was raised by General Washington, at Cambridge, Massachusetts. It consisted of thir teen stripes, but Instead of the stars were the union crosses of St. George of Enland and St. Andrew of Scot. landa In 1777 General George Washington and Robert Morris were appointed to design a flag for the nation. They en gaged Mrs. Elizabeth Ross to make the flag from a drawing made by Washington. This flag was adopted June 14, 1777, by Congress. It was resolved: "That the flag of the United States be thirteen stripes, alternate red and white, with the union of thirteen white stars on a blue field." In 1818 it was resolved: "That 0a star should he added when ever a new state was admitted, while the stripes remain the same." Red represents courage, white pur ity, and blue justice. Wherever the American flag is seen, it brings better days. If one is dis. couraged it brings new hope, for it is the pledge of justice, civilization and Christianity. The tyrannical only have reason to hate it. "Old Glory" is a very sacred thing to the American citizen, for under it he enjoys the lib erty for which our flag stands. OUR FLAG. (Strueby I)rumm, 7th B Grade.) The flag of any nation is its emblem and so the flag of the United States stands for freedom, love, order and Christianity. It is well for everyone to know the history of the American flag. The first Union flag was raised over the patriotic camp at Cambridge, by Washington, during the Revolution, in 1776. Congress appointed a committee, consisting of Gen. George Washington and Robert Morris to select a design for a flag. They went to Mrs. Betsy Ross and she made it from a plan drawn by Washington. It was adopted by Congress June 14, 1777. The flag of to-day was adopted by Congress on April 4, 1818, and retained the thirteen original stripes, but to the blue field was to be added a new star for every state admitted into the Union. The colors are the most beautiful ever chosen; red represents courage, white purity and holiness, and blue justice. The American flay is respected by all countries; it represents the great, est of all nations; it protects over one hundred million people. In men, wom en and boys it inspires heroic deeds, as it did the heroes who fought that we might be free and independent. Belleville School. OUR FLAG. ('Emma Gayaut, 7th Grade B.) From time immemorial nations have used flags as symbols of independence, power and union. In 1777 the Congress of the confed erated states assembled and ordained the glorious flag which we now hold and defend and advance before God and all men as the flag of liberty. "Its stripes of alternate red and white proclaim the original union of thirteen states to maintain the Decla ration of Independence. Its stars, white in a field of blue, proclaim that union of states constituting our na tional constellation, which receives a new star with every new state. The two together signify union, past and present. The very colors have a lan guage: white is for purity; red for valor; blue for justice; and all to gether bunting, stripes, stars and col ors make the flag of our country to be cherished by all ou hearts and to be upheld by all our hands." The adventurous sailors of the Unit ed States have displayed the flag in every part of the world where com merce called them, from the Arctic to the Indies. Our navy has made it res pected in peace and in war. It is res pected everywhere and everywhere it stands for American freedom, energy and vigor. OUR FLAG. (Elsie Borne, 8th B Grade.) When one sees a flag afloat, he at once sees a nation, as every nation has a flag, which has a meaning. Our flag is red, white and blue. It is a symbol of our nation. The present flag was adopted in 1818, and is con sidered the most beautiful flag in the world. It shows by its colors the bravery, purity and loyalty of the men who fought to save it The uses of the American flag are many. It is used as general symbol of rejoicing, sympathy and mourning, and is a fair emblem of our liberty. How many heroes its folds have covered! How many have lived for it! How many who have died for it! Wherever the American fat floats, it has been the sign of a better day. Under it lives order, justice, civiliza tion and Christianity. OUR FLAG. (Daisy St. Germain, 8th Grade B.) Flag of our great republic, inspirer in battle, guardian of our' homes, whose stars and stripes stand for bray. ery, truth, purity and union-we salute thee! Our flag's uses are manifold. It serves in a variety of ways as signals. It conveys definite information of vari ous kinds, and is used as general sym bols of rejoicing, congratulations, sym pathy and mourning. Tyrants only have hated it, and the enemies of mankind alone have tram pled it to the earth. All who sigh for the trinmphs of truth, righteousness and love have saluted it, Mrs. Beter Ross made the rst lag, whichl a dgm by eorg Wah ington. The flag of our time was adopted by Congress April 4, S18S. The stripes were to be red and white. Red signifies divine love, and is the lan guage of valor, and the emnblem of war. White is the symbol of hope. Illue signifies justic., sincerity and truth. The stars typify the endless duration of the nation. E\ery American's heart swells with pridel at the sight of a piecte of bunting representing this great nation. It is to him a sacred thing, for, under it, many millions enjoy the protection anti lib erty which thousands of brave men died to give. McDONOGH No. 4. Some of the Se'enth Grade pupils of hMc-Donogh No. 4 School had a most en joyable outing at Cit.. Park last Satur day. It was an ideal day for a picnic. Baseball was the main pleasure in which the boys indulged, but none of the other sports were in any way ne glected. The party started for home in the late dusk of the evening, all de claring that they had thoroughly en joyed themselves and were ready for another such event, in the near future. The following participated in the af fair: Robert D)urand, Edmund Hebert. William Tufts, l)ewey Thorning, Jo seph Thorning, \alter Wells, Milton Nelson, Edgar Cayard, Fulton Corbett, Strueby I)rumm, Merton Sadler, Sid ney Holman, Bernard Rice, John Stas si, Joseph Rumore. George Escousse. Alden Olroyd. Louis Kinsinger. George Escousse, William Eastwood and Rich ard Hart. The ladies in charge were the Misses L. Averill and E. Hotard. BELLEVILLE NOTES. A pleasant evening was spent by the friends of the school, who found op portunity to attend Dr. Bunnie Guth rie's lecture on Tuberculosis last Fri day at the Belleville school. The rather unpleasant subject was handled so interestingly that an ex pression of thanks, voicing the feel ings of all present, was made by Hon. Prank Henning. Eighth and seventh grade pupils opened and closed the event with sweet songs, prettily rendered. MOUNT OLIVET NOTES.

The Sunday-school rally last Monday was splendidly attended, the parish house being very well filled. But we greatly regret that so many of the par ents of our Sunday-school children were unavoidably detained at home by other matters, and so were unable to be present. They missed an unusual -opportunity. Addresses were made by Rev. John D. LaMothe, rector of St. Paul's Church, on "The Parent Pro blem."

A little girl of three years called to her mother and said one of those men at the corner picked me up and kiss me. There was three standing to gether chatting one with a heavy mus tache and the other two smooth face. Her mother said which one kissed you darling. The little girl answered the man swith the brush on his face. Mama told a little girl of 2% years, "Nelda close the shutters." Nelda-I shut the shutters and they -can't be shut any shutter. A teacher was explaining to the class the use of a compass and she told them it was an instrument for people to go by she called on a small boy to give a sentence and said John: "compass" through my yard.

A committee con sisting of Dr. T. P. Bell, S. Daniels, Jos. Lennox, J. M. Henry and R. M. Brown met at the church April 5 and selected chairs and decided upon changes to be made in the Sunday school room. The attendance at prayer meeting is increasing, there being more than fifty present last Thursday night. Sunday morning in the absence of the pastor Dr. J. M. Henry delivered an instructive sermon on the text: "How shall we escape if we neglect so great a salvation?" On account of the Sunday-school convention Monday night, the official board meeting will be held Thursday night after prayer meeting, at which time the second quarterly conference will also be held. The following mem bers who were elected at the last meeting are hereby notified, and will please attend: H. H. Gibson and G. B. Johnson. Rev. and Mrs. R. M. Brown were the happy recipients of a linen shower and a "severe pounding" last Thursday night, by the Home Mission Society and other members of the church. A large crowd stormed the parsonage af ter prayer service and a very pleasant time was passed. On Tuesday night the Ladies' Mis aionary Society held a very interesting meeting. Mrs. Henry gave a full re port of the board meeting at St. Mark's Hall, and Mrs. Gibsom described the recent State Missionary Convention at Baton Rouge. HOLY NAME OF MARY NOTES.

Dispensary for Women and Children is doing a noble work in our community. It is crowded at all times, so much so that there is never a time that a patient leaves a bed that there is not another woman or girl waiting for her place. Situated in the congested river front section, where thousands of poor persons re side, the Dispensary is daily besieged by scores of women and children in immediate need of surgical and medi cal attention. While the Dispensary receives an appropriation of $5,000) from the state and city per year, it re quires $10,000 annually to run the in stitution, and the women of the board, thirty in number, have to raise suffi cient funds each year to cover the de ficit and continue its good work. The benefit for the Dispensary, to be given at the Nemo Theatre, Alglers, during the week of April 21 to 2A, offers a splendid program, and as a great many people in Algiers can appreciate the good work of this institution, the ladies in charge feel confident that the Algiers people will help all they can by attending the performances. A pair of ball-bearing skates will be given to the girl and boy who sells the most tickets. Tickets can be procured from Mrs. George Koppel, 324 Bermuda street, Alsgiers.
