I cannot re member the time, but I am told that the presence of father and mother at parties and baills andl outings, commin6itn in the joys. thereofr were common sights in the past, to the peasresof both the young and the oad. Dear mamma and dear papa would smile approvingly - smile that smile of pride that comes from the heart, that smile of thank fulness that the Good God had spared their precious ones to of ford them this pleasure. But not to-day. The "old gye," as somethoughtless girls call those to whom they owe their pleasures of girlhood, have to stay at home. Mama has to be satisfied with taking one last parting for the evening, as she looks with loving eyes, and that same smile worn by the mama of long ago as she looked upon the festivities, and daughter disappears, chatting merrily with her escort--disap pears with that young man,, who has never shed tears over her sick bed, who has never spent all-night vigils with her, nursing her to beautiful girlhood, who has never sewed his eyes blind" working for her so that she might be attractive-that young rman who has only entered the garden when the flower washil bloom. I am not old-fashioned, but I sometimes think-of thesei things; yes, thought of themn be f~ore Ruth Cameron dwelt on the theme. Program At AAirdome For The Week.

Would they be doingit if they did notknowr that this was the coming country? These railroad magnates are not fools; neither do they put out their money for the fun of it. They are a barometer to the future of the country, because they are perhaps better posted on condi tions everywhere than any other class of men." Mr. Buflington said that he would report the meeting to the Board of Trade of New Iberia, and to his road. The latter, he said, would lend, he felt certain, every aid in its power toward the furtheranceof any moveithat had for its purpose the advancement of the country. Dr. Adams, of Jennings, "The Town that Father Carey Built," responded to the call of the chair for a talk and he knows the value of boosting. "Jennings was built by immigra tion. Following the trips .of Father Carey to the North, West and East, there was a tide of immigration to Jennings and surronding country. Property went up everything was on a boom. The place built up. When immigration quit, property went down, and business was not as good. But Jennings is there; and while not booming as much as when-- people camne there in car-loads to buy property, it is a prosperous town, populated with a happy prosperous' poe " Dr. Adams believed firmly that Jennings would be found ready to join the other towns in the boosting scheme now proposed. Dr. A. J. Bercier, ("Dr. Push"), of Opelousas, was call ed upon, and made a character istic talk. He advocated, besides the baseball feature of-the trip,. an exhibit car, showing the vari. ous products of the soil growing, as well as specimen of the soi itself. These plants cduld be planted in boxes, and maintained by sprinkling and care. Hon. Thos. H. Lewis was roundly applauded for. his patri otic talk, teeming with sound'Wld vice. His peroration, "The fu ture of Opelousas lies in the hands of her own people," brought down the house. He asid that he believed any move as the one contemplated' will bh beneficial; that nothing could b acomplished without trying. Mr. H. L Thompon one, o the prime movers in the Boost es' Club, spoke etthehth et of the Boosters, and of tie wonder of this country and t imps* tiv"e nee - ns ove would attract immigration here The meeting was b tiouht tia de by ffar Joha (lE wh plainsda in ae happys in that Grand Cotean, his home, had met chilly consideration at the hands of the Boosters, in not having en even mentioned Withi t magnetic towns w -. Mis setio He asserted that u i;ssip Valley was the coporafoi line of Grand Cotea, whereas t. Thai H. Lewis had admitted. that that fertile country was seven miles fwom Opeiueas. As tie meetmg was adjourn ing, a cry of "Swoids, Swords!" went up from different pts of the halL The grizzly Sheriff arose,; and with characterit posture, just said: "Boys, I have been here for' many years. There has never been. a when I. failed to rpto call for progrees advance ment. I will continue to do so as long as my means will afford it; when I get too poor to 'come across' I will move away." Cheers greeted this statement, and everybydy filed out, and went home satisfied that the Louisiana Boosters' Club was a live affair. The following committees were appointed: On soliciting m.ey- to defray expenses: Dr. John A. Has , C. F. Allen, A. L. Lacombe. On advertising: L S. Isacks, T. P. Bowden, M. L. Swords, Dr. A. J.
