eventually be avoided.
It is generally hoped that there
will be no necessity of any con
It is "supposed" that there is a
law that prohibits of riding bicycles
on the sidewalks. It is also sup
posed that there are officers to
enforce this law, if there is one.
It should be stopped, or else let
them all ride on the walks. The
dust is very heave anyway.

The executive committee of this
parish met at the court house last
Saturday afternoon, with Chair
man C. J. Edwards in the chair.
The secretary being absent, Mr.
P. Otis Broussard was appointed
to act as secretary.
The purpose of the meeting was
to take some action in the matter
regarding whether or not a primary
election would be held.
The folowing was moved by Mr.
Claude Pullin, seconded by Mr. P.
O.Broussard,and was unanimously
"In view of the fact that the
farmers of this parish are unusually
busy in their crops at this time,
and that a primary election, and
and possibly two of them to make
a choice of a candidate, who, in
order to be elected must again be
voted for at the general election
on Dec. 16; would mean great loss
of time and needless expense to
the people and to candidates; and
"Believing that it is unwise to
hold a primary and stir up factional
and partisan feeling, that we re
commend that the good people of
the parish go calmly to the polls
on Dec. 16. and select the best
man in their respective wards to
serve them as police juror.
"Candy is the Key" to most
what-to-give problems---if women
and children figure in the problems.
For delicious candies are an
allurement to the eye and to the
palate. A handsome gift-box of
bon bons and chocolates has a
sentimental appeal all its own.
When you run over in your mind
the things "she might like to re
ceive," count upon a box of Jacobs
and Norris candies as the one thing
SURE to please her. Let J. F.

Another Near Fire.
Wednesday morning about 3
o'clock the fire alarm was sounded
for a fire at the home of Mr. and
Mrs. H. B. Sere. It seems that
the blaze was caused from a box
of ashes that was set against the
wall the evening before by the
servant, and evidently had coals
in it, which smouldered all along
until nearly morning. However
the blaze was discovered in time
to avert anything serious and the
loss was comparatively small.
