C Owing to the inclement weather pslbv 4g pn Monday mnight last, the special meeting of the Algiers Branch, A. R. C., could not be held, as there was no quorum. As it is imperative that we call our members together this week, to discuss some important questions governing the work of the Branch, the special meeting will be held Thursday, the 4th, at 7:30 P. M. All members of the Branch are urged to be present at this meeting. ,Do not forget to send contribu tions of clothing and material for the French and Belgian Relief to K. of C. Hall. Contributions of money for the purchase of material and bedding can be sent to the chairman of the Branch, Miss Ella M. Rees, 319 Vallette Street, or to Miss G. Herbert, secretary, 216 Oli ver street. We earnestly request that all do nations be turned in by Saturday the 13th. as all goods must be packed and delivered to Mrs. Geo. Denegre, Superintendent of Refugee Clothing, A. R. C.. U. S. Mint, New Orleans, on the 15th inst. The following are the garments needed: Men's Wear-Shirts (preferably of light colored flannels), under shirts, underdrawers. trousers, coats, work-suits (overalls), coats (3 pieces), shoes, overcoats, Jerseys, sweater-vests, socks (sizes 10 1-2 to 11.) Do not send stiff hate (derbys. Straw, dress.) Woman's Wear-Skirts, drawers, corset-slips, petticoats, blouses, over coats, suits (2 pieces), shoes, pina fores, cloth hats, knitted caps, stock ings (7, 8, 9), shawls. Do not semd stiff hats mor fancy slippers. Boys' Wear-Shirts, union suits, undershirts, trousers, coats, suite, shoes, overcoats, Jerseys, socks (sizes 1 to 9). Girls' Wear-Dresses, skirts, over coets, night dre0ses, drawers, stockings (sizes 1 to 6), undergar ments, petticoats, suits (2 pieces), blouses, shoes. Boys' and Girls' Wear-Hooded capes, pinafores, woolen union suits. Infant's Wear---wani-skin swad dling clothes, cradle chemises, bodices, cradle dresses, sweaters, bonnets, bibs, neckerchiefs. diapers., shoes. baby dresses, hooded cloaks, jackets, shawls, socks. Miscellaneous-Bed ticks, bed sheets, pillows, cases, blankets, muf flers. Men's shirts and pajamas, so worn or shrunken as no longer to be serviceable are particularly wel come, since the material can be utilised for making children's gar ments. The following is an extract from the appeal sent out by the American Red Cross: "It is useless to lend a garment which is not made of the strongest and most durable materials, as the clothes are subjected to the hard est kind of use. But this does not mean that all garments must be in perfect repair. There are upwards of a hundred thousand women in Belgium and Northern France who will do anything for a little work, and who were mobilized and train ed into a marvelously efficient or ganisation for the making of new clothing-while there were still raw materials-or the repairing, ripping up and remaking of old clothing." "These women are happiest when at work. having less time to dwell upon their misery, and they look forward with dread to the day when their material is exhausted, they must lay down their work and await their turn to receive the next sup plies." We feel sure that this appeal will meet with ready response from the people of our district, who have al ways lead in all great movements for a worthy coase.

This tol lowed the Supreme Court decision of Monday sustaining the order is sued in 1916 by the board requiring the removal of all cisterns and water barrels. The notice reads: "This is a very important matter at this time, as the warm weather is approaching, and we are going to do all we can to get cisterns down in order to reduce the mosquito nui mance. "We have already filed more than 2000 affifdavits in the First and Sec ond City Criminal Courts. We pre sume that an of these cases will now go to trial at an early date." It is regarded as quite certain there will be a rush to tear down cisterns this week. The Supreme Court decision leaves the property owner who refuses to tear down his cistern subject to a heavy fine as well as the loss of the cistern.
