Louisiana, under the Act of March 3. 1879.
THE NEW YEAR
Bogalusa faces the New Year with a brighter future than any city
in the South, if not any city in the entire United States, considering its
size. During the next year it has been conservatively estimated that
there will be expended over two millions of dollars in public improve
ments, buildings and new enterprises. Two million dollars to be expend
ed in a city of this size and age in one year is a vast amount and will
not be appreciated to the fullest measure until the work is completed.
During 1917 the new paper mill will be completed and give employment
to 500 men. The City Hall, New Schools, Fire Stations, extending of the
water and sewer system, the placing of all the streets in a good condition,
the building of several modern business blocks and scores upon scores of
homes are just a few of the many things that are going to" occur in A
Bogalusa during 1917. It is expected that the car situation will show a
marked improvement in a few.days which will also result in a greater Lux
prosperity in Bogalusa. When the car situation improves the local rail
road shops are going to work the greatest number of men in the history
of the plant. Every car that could be retained in service for the past up.
few months has been doing duty and when the car situation imprqves c
hundreds of cars will be sent here for repairs. Announcement has also
lbeen made that when the car situation improves and if the market re- T
laines the same that salaries are going to be raised in Bogalusa so Bo- o
galusa citizens can look forward to 1917 expecting great things. the
1916 is fast going. It has been a goo! year to Bogalusa and her
citizens. Many great and good things have been accomdlhed. We
have passed the year without a single business failure. A remarkable nr
record for a city of this size. Bogalusa has been free from any disease,
any serious fire, everyone has had employment the entire year and ta
strides have been made. Bogalusa enjoyed greater prosperity, t&
0 p rps, than any city in the South during the present year, so 'with the
Sprting of 1916 no citizen can do so without fond recollections and face
1917 with plans otr a greater and better year for Bogalusa and her t

OPPORTUNITY FOR FARMERS
Famine! What does it mean? The Bible Speaks of famines. The in
newspapers have been talking about a world-wide famne. What does it
It means that the farmqrs are not producing enough corn, cane, rice. I
and potatoes There has never been such opportunities for the farmer a
is this country as the year 1917 is offering him. Opportunity approach
Slike a tortoise and flees like a hare. Seize it while you may. Now is
the time to cut briers and bushes' and repair fences, plow and clear new to
land, prepare the compost and make reedy to grow a bumper crop of
cora, cotton, cane, potatoes, etc.
Corn is worth $1,25 per bushel now, Cotton is selling at 20 cts. per
pound. Cane syrup 50 cts. per gallon, and butter 45 cts. per pound. a
Eggs there are none to be had. ChickenLs, pork and bacon are like eat- i
What is the matter with the farmer? Can't he feed the people any
mlore? If the farmers in this country will plant their land in corn and
make the land produce twenty-five bushels per acre, grain elevators will b
be constructed almost over night to take care of the crop.
Why don't we.cease talkinP hard times and go to producing corn?
t Along the N. 0. G. N. R. R. can be seen cords upon cords of wood b
aocked for shipment. So much so, one is reminded of the Scripture
which says, "And they shall be hewers of wood and drawers of water.
Some of our people have even been known to take advantage of the
mnoomnshine at night to hew cross ties, What a manifestation of energy.
Is this kind of energy well directed? Not Better be devoting this time
to p arinp mellow seed beds for next years crop. The earth is here
mader our feet. All it needs is tobe properly plowed and harrowed and t
i will bring forth hfruit a hundred fold.
HOME AND HOLIDAYS
There is, it seems to us, nothing finer than a real home. Especially
is the genuine home appreeated at the Holiday season. If one has
nelther the old folks to visit or an establishment of his own, then the
spirt of Yuletide is bound to be lacking. '
All the arguments in favor of living in furnished rooms and board
ing houses and hotels lose their punch when one thinks of Christmas
Fortunate is that child, indeed, who is born into a home that is
tirmly established; who does not have to look forward to a pillar-to-post
existence. And the old home is best. It takes some little time for the
walls of a place to become saturated with the thoughts and the term
paraments of those who dwell within them. The real home becomes a
sacred place, a true haven and reiuge. It removes its owner from the
cares of life, and gives him poise which enables him to better fight life's
leattle." The real home has a far different atmosphere than the rented
-mom, and foolish indeed is the head of a family who, without great
Steson, gives up the cloister of his loved oles to take chances on living
Shebre and there, dlo matter what attractions the will-o-the-wisp place may
For in the true home there is a well-known bush that has been
-planted in the front yard, and there are trees in the orehard that are
age with recollections. In the true home the halls are haunte with
vodces of the children that used to be.
