VOL XXV FEBRUARY 28, 1918 No. 42 BOY SCOUTS We are pleased to note that an active interest is being taken in our dis trict in the further organization of Boy Scouts, and with the proper en couragement from parents, teachers and ministers of the Gospel, we may soon have an organization that we may talk of in a way that will encourage the boys of our side of the river to become members. The Boy Scout movement is often misunderstood and especially at these war times: because qf their uniforms. The impression is gained that the boys are to be given a preparatory training to make them better soldiers later on. This is a big mistake. Boy Scouts have no connection whatever with any military organization, nor are they associated with any church or other organization. The purpose of the Boy Scouts i3 to make little men out of boys, to teach them the value of discipline, and their oath, which is as sacred as any, luts them on their honor to do right. The boys are benefited mentally and Iphysically; they are taught self-reliance, and best of all through this training, they become conscious of a better personality, and they try to live up to the standard of a Boy Scout. Dr. J. E. Pollock is now in charge of the Boy Scouts in Algiers. he has taken an active interest in their welfare and the organization will prosper through his co-operation. Parents and guardians should encourage their boys to join the Scouts, and help this beneficial movement. FIVE DOLLAR BILLS SELLING FOR $4.13. The United States Government is selling $3.00 War-Savings Stamps at $4.13 in February, $4.14 In March. raising the price one cent a month through out the year. People of thas state should be impressed with the fact that a $5.00 bill today will not buy as much or as many of the pleasures of life for which we save money as will a War-Savings Stamp when it matures on Janury 1st, 1923. The war cannot be fought with paper money: we.cannot wad up a $3.00 bill and shoot it at the Kaiser and do any damage: that bill is merely a demand for wheat. or wool, or gasoline, or some other material which our Government actually needs to successfully win the war, so the wise thing for us to do is not to spend money, but loan it to the Government, get 4 per cent interest compounded quarterly, for it, and then five years from now the Government will cash the stamp and we will have the money-then it will buy more of the things which we want than it will today. It is not only good sense but it is "patriotic" as well, to buy War-Say. ings Stamps. THINGS THAT HAPPEN In reply to women asking "How Can I Help," Major General Wood says: "If you love your husbands and brothers, see to it that they are given a sporting chance. that they are well trained, well led, and well prepared in time of peace." The Manufacturers' Record, commenting on the attempt of some West ern Senators to have the minimum price of wheat raised from $2 to $3 a bushel, exclaims: "Oh, what a howl there would have been if Southern Sen ators had done this in behalf of cotton!" Methodist Bishop Quayle of St. Louis, recently said that he had never been asked to make an address or offer a prayer at a liquor convention. The St. Louis Retail Liquor Dealers' Association thereupon issued an invita tion to the Bishop to do both at their next convention. English women have declined to meet Germen women at a convention of the Catholic Women's League in Switzerland, claiming it is impossible for English women to meet German women in friendly intercourse as long as crimes against religion and humanity are committed by Germany. ,More than 100 foreign ships are in Atlantic ports loaded with millions of bushels of grain that is rotting, because the embargo act prevents the ships sailing with such cargoes for European neutrals. They have rejected the Government's proposition to unload and sail to Australia for carrier work. Delegates to the quinquennial convention of the International Molders' Union offered a resolution to instruct their delegates to the American Feder ation of Labor to work for the defeat of Samuel Gompers on the ground that "he has maliciously attacked and knowingly mis-represented the great Jew ish-American labor organizations of New York City." Rev. C. C. Wier, Residence 258 Val lette Street; Phone Algiers 138. Last Sunday morning the pastor's subject was "Wrestling Jacob," Ge nesis 32:24-32. At night the subject was "A Dangerous Thing To Do." The foundation for the subject was Matthews 7:142: "Judge not, that ye be not judged. For with what judg ment ye judge, ye shall be judged, and with what measure ye mete it, it shall be measured to you again." It was made very clear from the text and from various other Bible read ings that it is a dangerous thing to judge our fellowman. The congrega tion was good. Next Sunday night the following special music is promised: Trom bone, Mr. Sanford HIebert; violin, Mrs. T. P. Bell; clarionette, Mr. Dewey Brown of the Naval Station. The pastor's subject will be: "Some thing Hard To Do" Let your guests know that we have services every Sunday at 11 a. m. and 7:30 p. m. The Boy Scouts sent a delegation to attend the funeral of Mr. Henry L F'avrot, scout commissioner of the city of New Orleans, who was buried from his home in Richardson Place last Friday, February 22, 1918. Report do eommittee appointed on resolutions of sympathy in Mr. Fav rot's death: Whereas, God in His ininite wis dom has called from our midst Mr. Henry L, Favrot, scout commissioner of Boy Scouts of America for the city New Orleans; Resolved, That in the death of Mr. Favrot scouting has lost a faithful and wise leader and the boys a dear ly loved friend, who served them un selibshly; Resolved, That we deeply sympa thise with his family in their sore bereavement and great sorrow and that we pray the Heavenly Father to comfort them in their loneliness; Resolved. That we have these reso lutions spread upon our minute book and that the scribe be requested to send a copy of them to the family. ULLIYIOTT HAFKESBRING, CHARLES BURGIS, CRRIGHTON MORTEN, coammittee.

Con firmation will be administered at this service. Confirmation is an apostolic rite. See Acts of the Apostles, 8-14-17. It has existed in the Church from the first Christian cenutry. See it re ferred to as one of the first principles of the Christian Faith. Heb. 6-1-2. Repentence and Faith are the first steps to be taken in the Christian life. Baptism and confirmation the second. And "resurrection and eter nal Judgment" the final doctrines of fundamental Christianity. Confirma tion is, therefore, a duty and a Chris tian privilege. It is also a part of the Christian plan of salvation. At the age of twelve, the child Jesus be came a Son of the Law. At that age or over we receive Confirmation and enter upon the full privileges of the Christian Church; assuming also the responsibilities and striving to do our duty in whatever state of life we are called.
