iROCEISS AMONG OUR
Among the folk who are doing
more than their share toward win
ning the war are the retail grocers
of this town. The demands of the
government on the grocer's have
been hard and exacting, but the gro
cers have responded willingly and
are making their sacrifices cheerful
With the distribution of the food
supply of the nation such an impor
tant matter, the retaan grocery busi
ness is one of the most important
branches of Uncle Sam's service,
even though not officially recog
Besides observing the 7 o'clock
closing order and the order restrict
ing the sale of wheat flour and su
gar, both of which orders have in
terferred with the conduct of the
grocery business, most of our gro
cers have become agents for the sale
of War Savings Stamps, thus giving
much time, and consequently a great
deal of energy to this work.
ILast week we published a list of
the grocers who are closing at 7 p.
m. By next week we hope that
every one who is not closing now
will see the advantage of this
movement to conserve fuel and light
and join the rest who are doing so.
RED CROSS PENNY PARTY.
On last week a penny party for
the benefit of the Red Cross was
given at the home of Miss Ernestine
Stockfleth in Verret St. The party
was given by Misses Olivia Bowers,
Gladys Meyers, Ernestine Stockfleth
and Master Roland Briel. During
the party, a very interesting program
was rendered: Recitation-"Lov
ing"-Lillian Olivier; Song-"Bring
Back My Daddy to Me"-Rosie Wei
ner; Song. "A Japanese Love Dream"
-Irene Dorsey; Recitation, "When
I was in the Ones"-Isabel McVers
lin. The exercises were opened by
a salute to the flog by little Misses
Grace Stockfleth and Leanora Ber
After the program, a yoke was
disposed of and received by Master
Duril Talbot, a sailor doll by Roland
Briel, a Red Cross Nurse Doll by
Theresa Jones and a large rag doll
by Jean Pagon.
The four little workers deserve
great credit for the success of their
undertaking, for they were able to
give eleven dollars to Mayor Behr
man for the Red Cross. "

Algiers is indeed proud of her po
lice officers, who have been pro
moted lately. It is only another S
evidence that we produce the goods c
on this side of the river. The lat
est Algerine to be recognized for pro
motion is Albert C. Prados, who has I
been promoted from Corporal to a
Sargeant to take effect July 1.
Prados joined the police force sev
eral years ago. He was soon pro- i
moted from supernumerary patrol- I
man to a regular patrolman and af
ter several years of hard work, his I
ability as an officer was recog
nized and he was promoted to Cor
poral. As another recognition of
his straightforwardness and good
judgment, he has been further re
warded and his Algiers friends as
well as his city friends join in offer
ing congratulations for his success
in his profession.
The second meeting of the Dixie
Follies was held at the home of
Misses Helen and Doris Graham. As

J. E. HUCKINS.
One of the livest and most eneg
getic business men in our district
is Mr. J. E. Huckins, who for many
years conducted his business on
Alix Street, as the exclusive interior
decorator on this Side of the river.
It certainly does take a hustler to
keep a competitor away from him.
and this Mr. Huckins has success
fully done in Algiers for the past
sixteen years. But, there is a rea
son for all things, and the principal
reason why Ned Huckins hasn't had
an active competitor in Algiers is
because he has endeavored to suit
the people and to do the best work
in the city.
Mr. Huckins has always been a
great believer in Union Labor, and
whenever possible his shop was con
ducted under Union Labor, and he
has been known to have paid the
very highest prices of any other in
terior decorator in the city, regard
less of whether his employees be
long to the Union or not. He has
the reputation in the city among the
other decorators as always paying
just a little bit more than the Union
Only a short time ago, Mr. Huck
Ins branched out into another busl
ness,-that i6 for taking large con
tracts for painting ships, and his
success in this line is due, to a great
degree, In his treatment of the la
boring man and paying the highest
wage for the kind of work involved.
Mr. Huckins has recently completed
several large contracts in painting
ships located in our different dry
docks here, and other big work along
this line is now waiting his atten
tion. He is, however, not neglect
ing his interior decorating work, and
is ready to serve his old time cus
tomers as promptly as ever.
Mr Huckins was born on August
i8, 1871,. and since the age of 16
years, he has been in his present
Mrs. J. E. Huckins and little
daughter, Zelda are also very promi

having been for the past years, a
leader among the women, in the or

was the originator of the Fifth Dis
trict Civic League, and kindred or
ganizations on our side of the river.
She has also been elected to mem

influence for the good of many
things have been felt here, in our
