We could easily use a column in telling you about the materials that go into it—Pineapples from Hawaii, Al monds from Spain, Pecans from Texas, Cherries from California, and so on through the list of twelve fruits that are used —but what good does it do to name them over, when the deliciousness is only half in the materials, the other half being the art and skill with which they are combined to make the perfect FRUIT CAKE.

The development of leaders in community work is an important rural need. Every community can boast plenty of men well able to lead the way in any important work, but they are not leading because they are too busy with their own affairs or think they are. It is not diificult to point out many lines of helpful and profitable work any given community should be do ing, and farmers generally will agree that such work is of importance, but who is going to start it, and carry it on after is is started? Such work takes much time. There is too much selfishness in these matters. We must make ourselves more willing to give I of our time freely to help others. I Development of rural leaders is .not a matter of taking a tender I youth hy the hand and leading him to j leadership. It is a matter of making j the able old warhorse, talker, fight jar. doer, see that he eaa well afford to give goal* •t his lime to serve the the tickets to the kids who will later get dolls and toys from the proceeds. I am further requested to an nounce; ladies and gentlemen that on the evening stated above, that the celebrated, serpentine elephantine, premier danseur. Mister Roseoe (Fatty) Arbuckle will show you some steps that Pavlowa, KoslofF and the other celebrated dancers of the day who dance for two bucks per seat at only the best theatres, never at tempted. Fatty is going to appear in a two reel Triangle, "The Waiters Ball" Fatty is the cook. The best j cooks will see i'ish fried in a manner entirely unknown to the best cooks of Morgan City. In addition to this picture Wm. S. Hart, said to be the best western ac ! tor will appear in a five reel Kavbee, The Dawnmaker. Figure it out peo pie, seven reels of quality pictures for ten cents. About a cent and a 1 half per reel. | j n conclusion ladies and gentle ; meri( jf you are no t perfectly satis ,, • , The pretty girls will now pass . the tickets. Thanking vou one fied with the show, stop at the box office on your way out and see if you get your dime back. If you do, we will give you another. out and a ]j f or y 0ur kind attention, as the circus man says, we bid you one and all a fond good night. people about him. The country ad viser does well as far as he goes. But his field is a whole country, which is too large a unit for concentrated de velopment of useful projects. The community where farmers are totally inactive in community work of one sort or another, social, educa tional, or business, is not the best sort of a community in which to live. Leaders in rural work are needed, and they are already available if they will only put themselves to work. —C. E. Snyder, L. S. U. Press Bulletin.
