Prizes for Beautiful Flower Gardens Other Interesting Subjects at Meeting Monday Night. Mrs. J. E. lluckins, the president of the 5th District Civic League, was very enthusiastic in making her re port of the good work done by the twenty-five of more interested ladies of Algiers who were present at the meeting of the 5th District Civic League which was held at the residence of Mrs. J. E. Huckins on Monday night. The principal feature of the meeting was the drafting of a letter to Supt. Reynolds asking that the cattle and horses be kept from the streets in or der to give those who desire, to im prove and make Algiers a beautiful residential section, an opportunity to do so. In this connection the League is going to offer a prize this summer for the most beautiful flower garden in our district. This is given along with the lines of an idea recently started by different women's organ izations in the city for each district in the city to adopt a certain flower to be peculiar to that district and in these pariculiar districts certain flow ers are to be raised and in paying especial attention along this line, some beautiful specimens will be pro duced and in the care of these gardens it will naturally cause a general inter est in the make-up of the lawn and other embellishments incident to a pretty garden yard. For Algiers the Hyrangea is to be the flower and dur ing the summer photographs will be taken of those houses where some of the better plants have been bred and the prizes will be awarded by judges selected for this occasion. All of this is to be done provided proper as sistance is given in keeping the ani mals from destroying the gardens. The League also adopted a resolu tion in which they are to assist a new social organization known as the So cial League. This Social League has been created for the purpose of tak ing care of the many young women who have been thrown out of employ ment by the closing of the many cab arets in the city. A ten-room cottage has been rented for this purpose and each of the different women organiza tions is to furnish bedding and such other articles necessary to furnish the place. The 5th District Civic League is to furnish bedding for one of the rooms. The League also took up the matter of the promiscuous throwing of news papers, circulars, and other advertis ing material in the streets and a gen eral protest along this line is also to be made. Jitney Speed. At the meeting the subject of regu lating the speed of the jitneys in Al glers also was taken up and it was the consensus of opinion of those present that in order to meet every ferry the jitneys were exceeding the city speed limit which is dangerous and should be stopped. After some other routine business the meeting adjourned. EXCITiMENT IN M'DONOGHVILLE Chief of Police Leson, who is in vestigating the Are that destroyed three cottages in McDonoghville at 10:15 o'elock Monday night, has been unable to obtain any evidence beyond oral testimony to bear out the sus picion that the blaze was of incen diary origin. Walter Roach, a negro, who lived in the cottage next to the Krans building, where the fire origi nated, says he found a demljohn in the rear room and used it in batter ing the door to get out of the burn ing building. He could not say whether it had contained oil, how ever. Elliott Roach, Walter's brother, declares he fired four shots at what appeared to him to be the figure of a man which he say through the win dow. He believes he shot the fellow, but no trace of anybody could be found in the rains. Early arrivals on the scene say that the rooms of the building ap peared to have been saturated with coal oil and the rapidity with which the fire spread through the building made it appear as if the whole house was coated with the fluid. The building has been unoccupied for some time, but Andrew Kraus, the owner said a party was about to rent it. An adjoining building, al so owned by Mr. Kraus, was occu pied by E. Lanasee, who succeeded in saving his furniture, however, Mr. Krauns estimates his loss at $3, 000, on which he has insurance for $2,400. The cottage owned and occupied by Clementine Roach was valued at $750 and insured for $500 in the Herbert agency. Chief Daly, of the Algiers depart ment, dispatched apparatus to the scene to aid the McDonoghville vol anteers and through the combined efforts of these men the double cot tage owned by Peter Camus was saved, water being obtained from nearby cdsterns and wells. The blas ing Roach building was torn down in order to stop the progress of the hortly beire the are, there war a burslar seasr in the nelhbarb d aer bungs been tdinkeor in th e i et A gst imie.s hem, des - ~1~a6;ei~- .-w -;~~at~' WOMEN'S __Newest Models for FOOTWEAR Spring ..

At the height of the fire, a near shooting caused more excitement, ii being said that George L. Ricks, an Algiers gardener, drew a revolver when he and F. X. Kass, a dairyman, met and exchanged words over a cow case which is pending in the New Orleans courts. Ricks made his es cape to Algiers before the Gretna police could overtake him. Extends Helping Hand Recorder Tiller extended the help ing hand to a prisoner at the bar of the Third Recorder's Court Tues day. John W. W.
