Holiday Spirit Prevails And Streets Are Crowded Each Evening. The busy season is on an, every merchant is wearing smile. There is no complaint o hard time, these days, as the country people come into the city by scores, and the city folk: emerge from their homes on the afternoons to make some neces sary shopping. The streets are crowded and the happy holiday spirit prevails in the old historic town. Everybody is happy and indeed they have cause to fee such. December is always a bus: month for Opelousas, but it ap pears that for the first time is many years this city has beei thronged with so many peopl< from the surrounding country all of whom come to Opelousa to attend to business. Strangers passing through thi: city cannot but note the thrifti ness of the citizens, and the splendid weather which adds ti the joyousness of the people here Several of the large stores ii this city are having sales and i is a pleasing surprise to watcl the crowds that visit these stores. Extra clerks have beer Ihired by many establishment: !and these, as well as the regular staffs, are constantly kept busy ,attending to the wants of cus tomers. It is safe to say that in the las four or five years this city has never looked as prosperous as ii does at present and it must be a great pleasure for the public spirited cit'zens to see such a change for the better come over the inhabitants of this com munity. There is no longer any need for the people of Opelousas and vicinity to go to New Orleans to do their Christmas shopping since the stores here are in a position to furnish them with as good and as cheap as the mer chan is in the Crescent City. Tradihg in New Orleans to a large extent ardbund the'holidays. as was the custom with the peo ple of Opelousas is a thing of the past since this city; can boast of some of the finest .tores in south west Louisiana. Hold On To Asny Timber Land You IHave. A. J. Legg, writing in the "Garden and Orchard" depart ment of the current issue of Farm and Fireside, says: '"I cannot see how anyone can afford to burn any timber that would make lumber into char coal at eighteen cents per bushel, now for twice that sum. "If one lives in a country where the lumber industry has i not been developed he has not much idea of the value of timber. Our West Virginia peopledid not have much idea of the value of lumber twenty years ago, but now the most valuable land is that on which timber is yet Istanding, no matter how rough it is. "People sold timber very cheaply here a few years ago. A large tract of rough timbered land which was valued for taxa tion twenty-five years ago at leso than one dollar per acre sold a few years ago at near thirty dol lars per acre. It is a question of only a few years until all timber ed land, no matter where situat ed, will be very valuable." , COLDS & LaGRIPPE 5 or 6 doses 668 will break any case of Chills & Fever, Colds & LaGrippe; it acts on the liver Ibetter than Calomel and d~oe not aib a or sic.ean.

OPELOUSAS MAN BUYS MANY SACKS OF RICE Mr. Clements Gets 12,000 Bags From Union Irriga tion Company. What is no doubt the largest deal in the sale of St. Landry raised rough rice took place here this week, when Mr. J. B. Clements, repr:senting t h e Standard Rice Milling Company of Crowley and Houston, bought from the Union Bice and Irriga tion Company 12,000 sacks of rice, all of which was raised on the company's lands in the par ish. This was not all the rice raised on the lands of the irrigation company, but speaks well con sidering the bad season. Mr. Schell, the manager of the irri gation 'company, has been up against some hard luck, but there is not the least question that in the future better crops will be raised. However, the price paid for the above mention ed rice has in a way recompensed for the shortness of the yield. Mr. Clements has been in the rice buying business so long that he is recognized as an expert in that particular line.. That he secured for his principals so large a quantity in one deal speaks well for his ability in his particular business. Columbian Woodmen hiiliate.

Morse became an inventor by chance. A casual remark by a fellow passenger on board ship when he was returning fromi London in 1843 caused him to take up the study of electricity. That remark was: "Dr. Franmkti's ex periment proved that electricity passes Instantaneously over a wire of any length." Before the voyage was com pleted, Morse had Invented the "Dot and-Dash" alphabet, and had thought out and planned essentially the electric telegraph as it exists today. But it was not until 1844 that the first line was completed between Washington and Baltimore, and the historic Inessage "What hath God Wroughtl" was sent. For years, he tried to interest Congress in his project, then he visited England and France hoping to interest the gov ernments of these countries, but without success. When he returned In 18389, he wrote: "I am without a farthing in my pocket, and have to borrow even for my meals; and even worse than this, I have Incurred a debt of rent by my absence." But he continued to petition Congress, and finally was rewarded for his persever ance by an appropriation of $30,000 which built the Washington-Baltimore lines and placed his name in the front rank of benefactors of the race. 3 Paid on Time Certificates of Deposit Paid on Savings accounts $1.00 Starts an account I A.
