Better Pay Your Poll Tax Todav While you are doing your Christ mas shopping today or tomorrow, drop into the First State Bank or the Washington Bank and Trust Company and pay your poll tax. Un less you attend to the matter this week you are very apt to find out that you have overlooked the pay ment of it and will not be permitted tp participate in the elections next year and the year fallowing and there is no man in the parish who does not want to have the right to vote in the parish, state, congressional and presidential elections. Owing to the fact that the parish taxes cannot be paid, many people are going to neglect paying their poll tax, as it has been their practice in the past to jpy their poll tax with the general and'special taxes. Ow- ing to some delay the parish taxes cannot be paid until after the first of the year, and thfn It will be too late to pay yoèr poll tax. -o- Nt RO PRISONER T RIES TO ESCAPE When Patrolman Charles Fiour ney went to take three negroes from the jail to the City Court Saturday to regain his balance Mr. Floumey fell to the ground.

YOUR ENTERPRISE EARLY THIS WEEK Don't think that because you get your Enterprise Monday afternoon that Christmas has passed and that the day is Thursday. Holidays this year fell rather hard on the Enter prise, as several have come on our publication day, which forced us to get the paper out from one to three days ahead of time. However, we think you will find the Enterprise up to its usual standard this week, even if it was published on Sunday. Next week you should get your Enterprise on the Wednesday morning delivery, because New Year's day comes on press day again and, rather than have the paper a day late, you will get it a day earlier next week. Printers are hard to get along with these days, as they do not care to fail to observe any holiday. They join with the pub lisher in wishing our readers a very happy Christmas.
