What Is Conservation?
No sane mind can question the
wisdom of conservation. Com
munities nd regions may con
tinue for years in the enjoyment
of a certain resource with ut at
tempting to conse,:rve it. But
Luner civilized conditions the
seeds of wait are sown when
man attempts to use a natural
resourde without providing for
its conservation.
Doubters will ask why the in
dividual citizen of Louisiana
should be interested, for in
stance, in conserving the oyster
resources of Louisiana. Will it
affect the indiviaual worker and
taxpayer? Undoubtedly and in
many ways. It is not necessary
that every one be a devotee of
oysters to appreciate the benefit
}of conserving them. If oysters
are scarce, those who like them
will have to pay higher prices
for them, and will have less
money, perhaps, to spend in the
line of business of someone who
has no use for oysters.
As surely as the sun rises and
sets, the abundance or scarcity
of natural resources have their
influence on individual pros
perity. Real prosperity in a set
tled country without conserva
tion is impossible.
The public seldom realizes the
rapidity with which reso rces
may be destroyed, or on the
other hand, the rapidity with
which prosperous natural condi
tions may be restored by the in
troduction of conservation meth
ods. Nature takes care of her
self if permitted sufficient peri
ods of recuperation after more
or less continued demand on her
resources.
While the results of conserva
tion in any particular instance
Sare not always obvious, the re
suits of reckless use of natural
resources are never less than de
plorable. Just as some men by
the practice of economy manage
with a small income to meet all
the essential demands on their
lives, others witlr even larger re
sources are often in serious
want, so conservation means
utilization of every opportunity
to increase the fish and game
and timber and other resources,
the maintenance of a margin of
supply that in the long run will
mean abundance-a few more
spawning places for fish, a few
more nesting sites for birds, a
few more untouched patches of
timber-something in reserve, in
other words, on which it will be
unnecessary to call until it has
performed undisturbed its work
of reproduction.

Report for Electric light and water
work plant for December, 1913.
Pay roll:.. ................... .$ 498 50
Fuel oil used on oil engine, 122
barrels at $1.50 ...................... 183 00
Fuel oil used on steam plant,
256.9 barrels at $1.50 ................ 384 30
Lubricating oil, waste and in
cidentals ................ ........ 80 00
$1145 80
Revenues:
From electric service ................. $1242 20
"water " ............. .. 454 83
" public " ................ 34 80
$2031 83
Profits $886.03
I wish to call your attention to the fact
that our receipts for lights and water
services are $169.76, greater this month
than they were last December, which
was the greatest in the history of Opel
ousas.
The new oil engine is in regular ser
vice and we are having the old one
thoroughly overhauled.
Now that we have entirely discon
tinued the use of the steam plant it is
necessrry that you make arrangements
to install another air compressor so as
to have everything in the plant in dup
licate. This outfit will cost, setup,
$1050.00, and I have arranged every
thing so the contract can be awarded at
once if you so desire.
I would recommend that the street
lighting system be thoroughly over
hauled and a number of new lights in
stalled so as to properly light the street,
and make the city look decent at night.
If you could appoint a committee to look
into this matter I think it would be a
step in the right direction.
Respectfully submitted,
(Signed) A. C. JONES, Supt.
On motion duly second and carried
