The em ployees of the telephone company are just as much "up in the air" over the changes as the public, because it makes a great deal more work for them. If you want to stay up until after midnight, you, can, talk to,.a party in New Orleans for 25 cents, providing you know his phone num ber and he answers the pîione, but if his cook happens to answer the phone you will have to jfcalk to her. If you call a party and you do not get the party you ask for there wfii be a "'service" charge of 25 per cent of the rate to the point where you called. There are many other changes which went into effect and the only consolation we can see in the changes is that if there is any important busi ness you desire to take up with Pres ident Wilson, you can talk to him between midnight and 4:30 a. m. for about $1.35, providing, of course, that you know his phone number, 'lo give you a new idea of the ratés, the following prices for service are given. Franklinton—Old rate, 20 cents; new rate, call number of phone, *20 cents, to get party you want 25 cents. Columbia—Old rate 30 cents; call phone number 30 cents, get party you want, 40 cents. New Orleans—Old rate 40 cents; new rate 45 cents, if you call by number, 55 cents if you give name of individual. Baton Rouge—Old rate, 40 cents; new 60 cents; 75 cents if you ask for certain party. Chicago—Old rate $5.50; new rate $5.50, if you call by number; $6.85 if you call for individual.

Every department of the stoic gave unusual bargains, no depart ment escaping. Manager Max Wilson is confident that within the next few months there will be a big decrease in the cost of merchandise and rather than hold his stock and get the old prices, he would rather take the loss now and make room for the new spring goods which have begun to arrive. If you have not attended this sale you are missing an unusual oppor- tunity of purchasing anything you need for the home at a big saving. -o THANKS, THANKS, BOGALUSA Mrs. George Denegre, who directed the state drive to raise funds for the Belgian children, has written the local committee thanking them for the funds raised here. Mrs. Denegre says: to ° a In her letter j ^ ^ J "Many thanks' 7 to the good people of Bogalusa for the generous con tribution to the fund for the little Belgian exiles. It is quite wonder ful to have overcome so many ob stacles. When these children are re united with their parents you will have a part in their great joy. They are the hope of the future Belgium.". WHY DENY CHILDREN PRIVILEGE ENJOYED BY COWS AND HOGS? Latter Use Sidewalk» and Children Do No Harm Walks in Bogalusa—City Hogs and Cows Should Beautiful Lawns, While Skating on Concrete Grown to Size Where Roam die Streets. Don't you think that your son or daughter is entitled to use the side walks just as much as that cow or bog., of your neighbor? ' Dont'yôu think that the cows and hogs which roam the streets of Bogalusa do more damage in one day or night than all the children do to property in a year? Then you should be in favor of putting up tne cows and pigs against stopping tne children from skating on the sidewalks. At a recent meeting of the Com mission Council the body was asked to take some action to stop the chil dren from skating on tne sidewalks, and the Enterprise believes that be fore any action should be taken to deprive the little folks of a new pleasure, that the Commission Coun cil owes it to the taxpayers of tne city to see that the cows, pigs, hogs and other stock is kept up. Last summer there were scores of complaints about the cows ,and pigs ruining war gardens which had cost many dollars and many hours of hard work. Several hundred dollars worth of damage was done to beautiful lawns in Bogalusa last year by hogs and cattle, and if Bogalusa is to have New 1919 W. S. S. i Are Now on Sale! The proverbial thrift of Benjamin Franklin has been given official recognition by the government. It is the picture of that unique and the 1919 war savings stamps. And on Franklin's birthday, Jan uary 17th, every American, remem bering the adage of "a penny saved is a penny earned,", was expected to ; buy a 8ta mp m hi S honor. j There is no doubt that the sturdy American patriot would welcome a war savings stamp as a birthday pres ent, were he alive and helping to solve the great problems of the day. : And one of the biggest problems der a is the .s h And one of the biggest problems j now confronting the government is j cleaning up its war obligations and; financing its peace program. By! buying war savings stamps every American can help solve this problem. The 1919 stamps maybe purchased at any postoffice, bank, store or other authorized agency during the month or January at $4.12. The price In- j creases one cent a month until De - 1 cember, when it will be $4.23. Thtj new stamp conies due on January l,j 1924, in the sum of $5. The increase in value represents about 414 '/<, com-1 pourided quarterly. It is a splendid • investment. It is the only security ' in the world which must increase In] value. ____ u __schools, TO LEAVE WEDNESDAY i Mr. and Mrs. J. H. Thompson, Jr., | and Mr. and Mrs. Eugene Pizzetta ' and son, William, will leave next j Wednesday for Tampa. Fla., where! they will make their future home,; old to you for the for after several years' residence in Bo gausa. Mr. Thompson will be asso ciated with his brother, who is a large cigar manufacturer of Tampa. } Their many friends in Bogalusa ; 1 licit ---- n j deeply regl et to see them leave, but | wish them all the success and happi-' ness that it is possible for anyone to j have in Tampa, and commend them to the citizens of the Florida metrop ° llS ______o__ CARLOAD OF TRACTORS j H. E. Rester received a carload! of Fordson tractors this week, con- j sisting of seven tractors. Mr. Rester expects to dispose of toe shipment in a short time. LIGHTS IN ADAMSTOWN Adanvstown, that section of the, city beyond Northwest Bogalusa, j to have street lights, the improve J ment having been ordered, and it is expected the lights wïïî be in oper con little ob re will They ation in a short time. -o MRS. SAUCIER DEAD Mrs. Eliza Saucier, wife of Philip Saucier, who resides within the city limits on the Franklinton road, died Monday of pneumonia. The funeral services were conducted Tuesday. successful gardens, pretty lawns and sidevwalki, which can be kept in a presentable condition, it is necessary that the» Commission Council take some actfon which will result in the stock being kept up. Bog&lrjsa is probably the largest city in jhe United States inat per mits jcpvts and other stock to run at large arid visitors to the ciy never cease cajling our atention to the fact. A younj man with the American army iij Russia, in writing to * his friends back North, stated that the Ihing Which looked moss peculiar to him .wife the running at large of hogs on the (streets where he was located. It will soon be time to start the spring gardens and have the lawns fixed for spring, and the Enterprise belifrœ the Commission Council shoiffel take action and pass stock or dinances which will bring to an end forever the running at large of any kind of stock within tne corporate limits of the city. In the meanwhile we think the children should.be per mitted to skate on the concrete side walks until traffic becomes much heavier. . Ready to Build New Clubhouse a Work on the clubhouse of the Bo galusa Country Club will be well un der way by the end of the week, the weather permitting.
