L Knight, the pppu lar liveryman of this city. Mr. Knight is the owner of some of the finest turnouts in this section and is ever on the job ready to serve his many customers. His rates are most reasonable, and his service is unexcelled. In addition to the regular livery service, he also con ducts a hack line, and these are available at any time for short trips about the city. Mr. Knight's rigs can be usually found at the com. missary building, where he main tains a stand, or he may be reached, .y phoning No. 93, -gps t MANY PEOPLE STILL PUT THEIR FAITH IN THESE OLD-TIME BELIEFS AND SIGNS It there are thirteen persons in-' th vited for that dinner party--have ju a care and watch your step. Su- si' erstit ious persons say that surely in if there are thirteen at table one a1 will die before the year is out. 'fr That superstion, like most others. goes hundreds of years back. It is al founded on the fact that there were twelve plates at the Last Supper. Some one has figured out a law of probabilities that shows that of thir teen persons of different ages, one is likely to die within a year from a certain date. But if there were fourteen.or fifteen at the table the death chance would be increased. It would seem, then, that adding another person or two to break the superstition and to get away from the fatal thirteen would in reality be making the chances of some one dying all the greater. I h The howling of a dog is certain ii to protend death. Certainly. There M is no means of knowing how many tl persons hear a dog when he is c howling, and it is altogether proba ble that some one of the neighbors will die. They usually do. Yet on the other hand, many persons have heard a dog howl and lived to ripe old age in spite of it. And maybe the dog howled because he was cold or hungry or both. 'Go ahead and be superstitious if you want to. Suppose you spilt the salt at the table. What then? Nothing much, except that some one, as usual, is scheduled for an early death. Salt in ancient times was held to be a symbol of purity and friendship. To spill the salt is to break the image' Despite this well-founded superstition, it is surprising the number of persons who have sur vived tumbled-over salt cellars. And there are dreams. What - can be said of the persons who' t "interprets" dreams? Where do they get it? There are many, many ' persons who believe in dreams and 8 the most general rule seems to be I1 to take dreams contrary. To dream of an anchor is good; it s gives hope of good fortune. If a sick person dreams of white cloth- ' ing he may look for a protacted t illness or death. It is not good to dream of raiment of many colors. Black clothes in a dream means a a speedy recovery. To dream of fine clothes is a good sign. but tat tered garments means bad luck. - Good, rich fruit is a fine dream and means luck, but if the fruit is bitter look out for enemies. Goose berries indicate to a husband or wife the coming of children. A spinster who dreams of grapes will soon be happily married. Dreams of hens and chickens mean danger. On the other hand, to dream of geese is a favorable omen. A swan is the best dream bird of all-it means 'everything pleasant. A barking dog is bad very bad When one dreams of being naked aqd cold he is threatened with pov ertv: either that or he is out from under the covers. It is a good sign to dream of giving or receiving kiss es, gleaning friendship, good health and gene-al prosperity. No one could ,. wish or a better dream than to see the rising sun, a clear moon or .bright stars, for they all denote r. riches, joy and good news. But be Sware of a waning moon, a. clouded d sun or a pale star. A rainbow e means early news of a pleasant e nature and probably a journey. A is young man who dreams of snow is ie due very shortly for wedding bells. b-reams of thunder and lightning re means all sorts of good luck. ps And so on. For every possible Sdream you will always fin4 some Sone who knows the answer. Super . stition seems grounded into our Scompositq natures. But if the sub ject should take hold of you and if some omen should worry you there is a simple way to shed your dis tress and turn all bad luck into good of ]luck. 9t This system is recommended by -,(bst of authorities and has never i known to fail To turn every 0- ·;:~ · the fullness of the earth there is just one thing to do. It is quite simple, but it will offset any evil influence that has been working against you. This bit of knowledge comes down from the ancients. Here it is: Wear a piece of coral around your neck and you can' go wrong. OR, PIERCE RUNNINC ON PRESENT RECORD has Made A (;ool Offici al And Asks For Re election at Primary Dr. J. E. Pierce. who at present holds the office of coroner in Wash ington Parish, is a man peculiarly well fitted for the office, in-as-much that he has held the office, with credit to himself and his constitu Dr. J. E. PIERCE tents. Dr. Pierce is a man of wide and varied education, having attended sons of the best schools and col leges in the south, and he seems to have a greed for knowledge that it seems almost impossible to satisfy. Dr. Pierce asks the support of the voters of Washington Parish, on the strength of the way he has con docted the office, which we all must admit has been satisfactory in each and every respect. f He extends to his many friends the compliments of the season, A Merry Christmas and A Happy SNew Year, and again asks them, if' Shis conduct in office is worthy of another term, to remember him at rthe coming primaries next month. 'HERE'S HOW TO KEEP YOUR SIUTO FROM TU IIG TURlTLE SOn account of the large number g of automobiles turning turtle now - adays, killing and maiming many of the occupants, there has been d much thought on the matter by which such accidents will be less a frequent It has been said appar . ently with good logic, that the turn b ing over of automobiles is not caused d by bad roads or fast driving; it is e because the driver loses his head and r consequently control of the machine. SThe driver of an autompbile when d in danger ot turning turtle feels the w wheels skidding into tuhe ditch and it intuitively turns the front wheels to Athe center of the road. This has a is tendency to turnthe machine t s. right angles to the direction of the t momentum and turning over is in evitable. if the machine is running e at a brisk speed. Instead of doing ie this thing, the experienced driver r- will turn the front wheel to ur the bottom of the ditch when the b- rear wheels ar~ felt skidding; he re if mains that way until he has the re machine under control. The prin s- ciDle of the rule is that as long as xl the wheels are kept in line of mo mentum the car cannot turn over )v but as soon as the machine is head er ed across the line of motion then it y* must roll. If the rate of silpeed at V tained is suflliciently drea.
