THE PROSPEROUS WEST SIDE We are often asbked in our sojourn through the city how the \est Side of the River is getting along, and it has been our pleasure recently to state very enmphatically that everything on this side of the River is now working full force, which is qtuite a credit to any District. From liarey's ('anal to Me I.ellanville there is a continual busy buzz of work. This alone spells progress for any section. he it city. county or state. BIeginning at llarvey and going on down to Mcl.ellanviile we might mention that the lumber yards, the cotton seed mills, the oil mills., the iron works. ship b4uilding plants, dry docks. the three railroad terminals, and the Imm igration Station are all acti\e and e'm ploy ing up to their limit of skilled and unskilled workmen. The latest and best news that has reached our District is the dispat rh from W\ashiingtonl (which chronicles the d(etails). is the immediat.' openinii of the Na\al Station. This will become the greatest industry in our I listri t. sisurpa.siltg ' .n the t'eminlplol ment gi.eli by the Southern i' tacitii (I'otpui\. h.!lo.,w' ll]tiplo.yy.'e: numIbnher at Iprlt' ntill about ele'.enll hundred.

W. S. SLACK The rumor hans gained ground and with perhaps a good deal of truth, that Rev. W. S. Slack is thinkinz very seriously of accepting a call to (Columblia. .Miss. This news spread rapidly about town and especially among the menm bers ' his congregation and his hundreds of personal friends in our Dlistrict who regret very much that there is a possibility of Mr. Slack leaving this District. We voice the sentiment of all good. thinking people in our town. whien w'. say that a man of Mr. Slack's character is a positive asset to any community and it certainly would 'be very much regretted should Mr. Slack sever his con nection with Mount Olivet Episcopal Church. We understand that in leaving the Algiers church for the Mitissisippi station, the matter of salary has not been brought into consideration. It is claimed that the attendance of the church, considering the number of com municants, is not what it should be and that this is the principal reason why a change is anticipated. It is estimated that there are about 42'0 Episcopalians in our District, a small percentage of which would be more than sufficeint to keep up the church and give the proper encouragement for one who has de voted his life to the work and cause of Christianity. This is an appeal to all the Episcopalians in our District that before Mr Slack has permanently made up his mind to leave Algiers that a concerted effort be made to show a better spirit in attendance and thereby give sufficient encouragement to induce Mr. Slack to remain here. Rev. W. S. Slack is known in the city of New Orleans in eve\'ry public char 'itable institution, whether it be Catholic. Protestant, Jewish. or what not. lie has always made it a point to visit the Algiers sick regardless of their religious beliefs. In the hospitals in the city as a visiting clergyman, he stands at the head of the list. We know of nothing else we could say to the credit of M1r. Slack that has more merit than his constant attention to the afflictea. We are positive when we assert that the public in general in our District will feel very a keenly should Mr. Slack decide to leave here and it is the hope and sincere awish that he will get sufficient encouragement to cause him to change his mind. INTERSTATE TRUST AND BANKING COMPANY One of Our Strongest Financial Instoitutions. One of the strongest financial insti tutions in the city which established its first branch in our district, is the Interstate Bank and Trust Company, which is now located in its beautiful building at the intersection of Opelous as avenue, Teche. Bouny and Evelina streets. It was only a short time after the establishment of the local Algiers bank that the Interstate Bank and Trust Company recognized the possibilities and showed confidence in the future prosperity of the West Side of the river. In establishing themselves over here it was, of course, necessary to buy out the local institution, which was known as the Algiers Bank. The stock of this bank was bought by the Interstate Bank and Trust Company at quite an advance over the original prl value of the stock. It was this confi dence and foresight that finally estab lished here the Interstate Bank and Trust Company and their success later on necessitated the erection of their own building. Mrs. Lee G. Lowe, who is in charge of the branch over here and is one of the assistant cashiers of the big insti tution, helped to a very great extent to make the local bank the success it is at present. There are few women in deed in the state of Louisiana who have either aspired to or succeeded in equipping themselves satisfactorily in such a responsible position. This is not only a credit to Mrs. Lore but to our district as well. The deposits of the Interstate Bank branch over here have had a steady and continual Increase from the time they first operated here as a part of the big Institution in the city. The de posits have more than quadrupled. The number of the depositors has increas ed, especially now since they are in the heart of the business section, they may boast of a still further improve ment. The local branch here has always employed local people and in this res pect it Is a matter of patronising "home litustry." Mrs. Lee G. Howe, the efficient as sistant cashier, is always affable to her customers ana she understands the business conditions of the country to day as well as any of our business men 'here. In the value of real estate and stocks and bonds she is thoroughly posted and in making the many loans, the insignificant losses that have been sustained are indeed a credit to the local institution. Besides the regular banking business the savings department also comes in for its share of attention. Owing to the fact that the Interstate Bank be ing one of the few banks that pay 4 per cent, it has built up a considerable trade in the savings department. The bank is opened every Monday evening especially for the purpose of receiving the savings of people and also for re ceiving the regular deposits of the mer chants who are not able to bank during the daytime. This is a special accom modation that is always appreciated. 'ALGIERS LADIES WIN PRIZE AND RECOGNITION. On last Saturday at the Woodmen's Hall in the City, where the Federation Women's Clubs held their first annual fair, two of our Algiers ladies, mem bers of the Fifth District Civic League, won recognition. Mrs. Wm. Short was given one of the prizes for the produc tion of what was known as Rose Leaf Beads. These Beads were produced from actual rose leaves. It is said that they were very handsome and that she won one of the best prizes of the show. Mrs. C. W. Abbot was also given spe cial recognition for the production of a most beautiful hat, the sale price of which was the best there. The Club was represented by Mrs. J. E. Huckins, the President of the League, and by Mrs. Short and Mrs. Abbot. I DON'T WORRYl" THIS IS BODENGER'S SLOGAN.

A WORTHY CAUSE. With the coming of the festive Yule tide, also comes the call from God's afflicted children for help on every side, and great as is the need of those who call; in every case, yet the call of the tubercular ones should appeal to us most, as not only the Individual, but the entire family and the public is in danger, also, In the case of these helpless ones. The Louisiana Anti I Tuberculosis Society, which ministers - to these sufferers, has aoout exhausted its resources, and appeals to the pub , lic to remember its charges as the holl - day season draws near. A day has ,been set apart upon which to tag the ;public with the Christmas stamp, and Sit is sincerely hoped in this way to - raise sufficient funds to continue the ,work which is in great danger for lack rof means. The people of Algiers will tdo their part, as many know the value of this work in securing milk, eggs, treatment and the services of a trained nurse when necessary, for some suffer ing human-fellow.
