WHAT POSTAL SERVICE MEANS The one Department with which the people come into con tact daily, is the Postal Service or better known as the "Post Office". It is an institution made up of human units designed and managed to serve the people, ir respective of wealth, religion race or color. But, any institu tion operated by man is subject to human imperfection, the only remedy or source that will bring about an adjustment of differ ences or evenness of purpose, is criticism and proper correction. Any enterprise conducted alto gether for the public good is apt to seek the lines of least resist ance, and in course of time gradually slide into a rut, but to prevent this unfavorable con dition we must keep abreast of the times by the infusion of new ideas and suggestions, these must be sought away from the road where we find the rut. Therefore, this appeal is made to you, dear reader, for your ideas and suggestions relative to this advancement and im provement of the local postal service. Ideas are the gems of human ingenuity ; they glitter forth from accomplishment like bril liance from diamonds. It is that which we seek: IDEAS. If you cannot furnish an idea as to how the local conditions might be im proved, make a suggestion, which will not only be appreci ated but adopted if found use ful. This is no test of your intel ligence; no mock efforts. It is an inspiration to serve you bet ter, and the ohly prize we are in a position to offer is, "better service" in accordance with the Postal Regulations. This will depend upon the practicability of your ideas or suggestions. The Postal Service is our mes senger of happiness and sorrow, it reunites old ties considered severed and forgotten, it is the carrier of the merchant and manufacturer to their trade, it is a factor in the affairs of fi nance ; it is the messenger of ten derness and strife, of misfortune and success ; it may sow the field of energy to grown forth gar lands of accomplishment ; it car ries summons to the farmer, ap pealing to him to pave the way to fortune and independence; it tells of the rise and fall of na tions, of victory, defeat, valor and bloodshed ; it carries the message of love to our bedside in time of adversity and sorrow ; it is the messenger of love to sweethearts, to husband and wife, and families, to the father and mother growned old. It is the disseminator of knowledge; it brings to us food for the mind, the body and soul; it knows no boundaries, it's service is limit less. It is your agent, the one agency of our great government with which you are daily in con tact, and always at your com mand. Knowing its record, in your possession of this institution we would do well to make any sug gestion that would tend toward its advancement for the public use in our community. Yours for service, Julius P. Hebert, Postmaster. Miss Bernice Williams, of Morgan City, spent several hours here Thursdav with friends.—Patterson Tribune.

In the 'squalid boarding house where she finds enmployment she has one friend, Launcelot Melment. Laucelot has incurred the dis pleasure of his father, Lord Mel mont, by embracing a musical career. His success is slow and, drawn together by misfortune, the scion of nobility and little "slavery" become fast friends. For hours the girl listens enrap tured to the inspired strains of the young composer's rickety piano while in the sunny window her pet canary swells hi? little breast in vain emulation. Thru the dark days that follow when Mary Ann is oppressed by the unwholesome attentions of Sid. j ! a notorious cadet, and Launcelot j is pested by a shrewish landlady the strangely assorted friendship (ripens, until one day the disquiet |ing news comes that Mary Ann is heiress to a fortune and must go away and learn to be a"lady". Afew years later, her education ! completed, Mary Ann returns to the city. Her guardians arrange a coming party. Among the guests is Launcelot, now a musi reputation. While her face is cian of wealth and established familiar to him, Launcelot is un able to recognize his former ser vant in this new luxurious sett ing. His puzzlemenc is profound and at last he asks "Marion" who she is. "Merely Mary Ann" she answers in her best "slavery" manner.—adv Under Act No. 95, of the last session of the General Assembly of this State, introduced by Senator Delos R.
