It is also planned by the Nation al Council of Defense to have memorial services held in every city in the Union on the same date. In his recom mendation that these memor ial services be held in honor of Mr. Roosevelt, the chair man made the following state ment: "The honoring of Theodore Roosevelt is a matter that transcends party belief . and personal prejudice. He lived greatly for America and that is enough to justify even those who opposed him in mourning his death. With iron courage he performed a major operation on the public morals of his country at a time when public ethics had become dulled and with dar ing and unfailing dignity he increased the prestige of America abroad. Of no Amer ican can it be more truthfully said that his heart was incar nated with the flag. For these things alone all Ameri cans who have lived in his time should hold themselves in his debt and should turn aside on the ninth day of February to honor his passing from the national stage.'' During his term as Presi dent, Mr. Roosevelt visited the South, and especially dur ing the yellow fever epidemie did he show that he was a great friend of the Southern people. In consideration of the foregoing, I, E. R. Cassidy, Acting Mayor of the City of Bogalusa, do hereby set apart February 9 as the day for holding memorial services in honor of Theodore Roosevelt in the City of Bogalusa, and do urge every citizen of this city to attend this service, which wil be held at the Y. W. C. A. building at 3:30 o'clock p. m., February 9th, 1919. This done and signed in my office at the City Hall this 29th day of January, 1919. E. R. CASSIDY, Acting Mayor. ♦ I ♦ I ♦ j ♦ j ♦ I ♦ ♦ ^ ^ I 4 j 4! + 1 ^ ; + J ^ I ♦ j 4! *1 4] 41 j 4, ! <4 ! 4 4 4, 1 ♦ ! 4 ; 4. 4 ! 4 1 4 41 4 j ■ * ^ 4 1 4****444* + + + + * + * +• ___—---j BOOZE BILL WOULD BUILD MILLION HOMES Chicago, 111., Jan. 29.—T^e victory of "Bone Dry America," which the. ratification of the constitutional pro hibition amendment has brought about, could be made to mean a thou sand miles of homes built of wood, according to a Chicago expert with figures. In other words, a row of frame cottages erected on fifty-foot lots would stretch out that distance. The calculator who turns the pro hibtion victory into a splendid col lection of happy firesides, encased in that most famous of building mate rial—lumber — figures about this way: "The United States (or rather its people) has spent each year for liquor $2,400,000,000, which now it will have for the purchase of other things. This sum "would buy 800,000 dwellings at an average costof $3,000 each—a row over a thousand miles long if built on fifty-foot lots." Though it is not so stated, this proposition of a thousand miles of happy lumber-built homes would be repeated every year, so that at the end of ten years there would be ten thousand miles of such homes. More figuring shows that this means there would be eight million such homes, which ought to take care of a large part of the earth. SOME COLLECTOR City Clerk K. I. Bean has estab lished some record as a collector of bills. During the year of 1918 the waterworks system did a business of $18,640.28, and on January 1, 1919, only $103.31 remain« J unpaid, most of, which has been paid this month. Good Roads Bonds To Be Sold Feb. 7th At a special meeting of the Police Jury of Washington Parish, which will be held at Frankinton on Friday, February 7th, the half a million dol lars worth of good roads bonds will be sold and indications are that there will be lively bidding for these bonds. The Police Jury reserves the right to accept or reject any bid, and J. R. Leslie, president of the Police Jury, states that the bonds must bring par and that the bidding must be by com petitive bid. Details of the side have been mailed to prospective purchasers and, owing to the fact that it is one of the most important matters which has ever come before the Police Jury in $he history of the parish, it is being given all the publicity possible. TO ORDER PLANS FOR NEW CHURCH Following an election at which W. C. Flanders was made president and W. H. Jennings, secretary-treasurer, the board of directors of the First M. E. Church announced that they will order plans and specifications for a new church and will arrange details so that it will be possible for them to build within a short time. CITY COURT DOES RECORD BUSINESS The City Court did a record-break ing business on last Wednesday when 31 negroes were charged with gatn bling, all of whom were found guilty and fined $25 and costs. Fourteen of the 31 paid their fines, while the re mainder will lay out their sentences. This is the greatest number of cases ever tried in one day since the City Court was established. 1 ° WALSH HAS SON If you had walked into the office j of the assistant treasurer of the Great Southern Lumber Company Tuesday and had tried to pick oat the boss, you would have selected J. A. Walsh, instead of D. T. Cushing. It was explained by others that Mr. Walsh was the father of a fine son,, who arrived Tuesday night. Mother and son are reported as getting along nicely. - 0 - TAKES GRANDDAUGHTER HOME Mrs. Tyler Davidson, mother of G. M.

Hyam, of Mississippi are nue, is enjoying * visit with New Orleans relatives and many friends, j Alexander and A. Inman Townsley Butter, Eggs, Meat Down—In Chicago Those who have been contending that there will be no slump in prices may begin to see that it is about time to change their minds. Evidence of this was brought out very strongly in Chicago last week when in three days the price of butter dropped 19 cents per pound and eggs dropped in from from 13 to 15 cents a dozen. The price of pork in Chicago dropped 8 cents a pound Saturday. In Bogalusa, however, there was no noticeable change in prices and Monday eggs were selling at 65 and 75 cents a dozen, and you could get a pound of butter for the same môhey. It is expected, however, that within a few days the decline in prices will be noticeable in every community. In New Orleans there wafc no change in prices, but the deal ers are expecting it daily.

Every runner of note in the South will take part in the race and at least forty will toe the mark when the when is fired to set them off. Since leaving Bogalusa in 1915, Breland has figured in very near all of the big races in the South and has time after time captured the honors against odds greater than now face him, for he is in great shape already and has another month to put on some fine points, so after all the old war-racer may have a surprise for all. -0-- CASSIDY RESIGNS E.
