A New York newspaper containing a story of the romantic love affair between Prin cess Julia and Phillip, fighting for his throne, usurped by Simond gives Arthur Droyd, a crook who finds that he resembles Phillip, a chance to put up a game. In the hotel room, adjoining Phil lip's, Droyd hears Phillip tell Juan of his wire to the Arizona Bank for funds, and he plans with his confed erate to do away with Phillip and Juan, collect the money and imper sonate him. Ramon and his party go to the same hotel where Philip is stopping, bu£ when Ramon seeç Pihl I lip's name on the register he is sur prised and enraged, and walks out to ! go to another hotel. But Droyd rec ! ognizes Julia, and slips the word to j her that Phillip is in this hotel. I Droyd fo,lows and ascertains J where Julia's party is stopping; then he returns * "cures access to Phillip's ' room witJl his confederate, and ren ! ders him insensible ' aen chloro ! forms him. Juan, returning, tries to j fight, but he, too, is overpowered and aecorded the same treatment. Droyd hastily perfects ,his resem blance to Phillip by some make-up and then awaits the money from ArizonJ,. Detectives searching for Droyd, break into his room, where Phillip and Juan are now lying. The two, awakening, think they are being framed-upland put up a hot fight, but they are dragged to the station by the detectives, who think they have taken Droyd. Julia writes a note to Phillip, re questing him to call, but Ramon in tercepta the note and changea it to read for an appointment at a lonely spot. Then he hires a gang of thugs, of the be and w r hen Droyd, in disguise as Phil lip, goes to the spot, he is killed, and Ramon thinks he has killed Philip. Phillip is shortly released when the officials become aware of their mis take, and he and Juan set off in search for Julia, but Ramon, fearing the consequences of his crime, has already started for Europe with his party, and Philip is Jeft alone, dis consolate. a and the The al was of held with the this of job re ser As and ar the for of for go is ANNUAL CONFERENCE OF SCHOOL BOARDMEMBERS AND PARISH SUPERIN TENDENTS The Annual Conference of School Board Members and Parish Superin tendents, authorized by Section 25, Act 120, 1916, will be held in the City of Baton Rouge Monday and Tuesday, July 16 and 17, 1917. There will be three sessions of the conference—Monday 2:00 p. m. and 8:00 p. m.; Tuesday, 9:00 a. m.— held in the House of Representati ves. The discussions will fall three heads. under to to 1. » Assessments and School Re venues. Statements will be made by ! State and parish officials outlining the financial situation and the need for additional school revenues; the Board of tSate Affairs will be invit- ■ ed to sit with the conference at this session and a member of the Board i will be requested to explain the law ■ under which the Board operates and to discuss the question of State sup port for public education. 2. School Attendance. Figures will be represented to illustrate some of the loss sustained on account of irregular attendance and an ef fort will be made to discover the best way to reach all children with j good schools and to provide for their regular attendance. The compulsory law will be gone into thoroughly with the view of determining whether or not this law should be strengthened in order to make ' it more effective. 3. Country Development. Under this topic such questions will be dis cussed as, the necessity for increas ed food production, diversification, industrial education, country high schools, both Junior and Senior, ne gro schools. It it to be hoped that large num bers of the parish school board mem bers will attend this conference and take part in the discussions. The ad consolidation of schools, good roads, vancement of the public schools de pends very largely upon the good judgment and the patriotic interest of the members of the parish school : boards. That these officials will be j very greatly benefited by attending j the Annual Conference there can be no question. The parish superintend- 1 ent should be REQUIRED to attendT, J and request is hereby made that all, of the boards at their July meeting pass a resolution instructing and re quiring the parish superintendent to f attend the Annual Conference. The board should by all means pay the expenses of the superintendent (and the board members who attend) but the superintendent's presence should be required even if he should be j called upon to pay his own expenses., Yours sincerely, T.

WOULD SHORTEN WAR BY FIR ING ALL GERMAN FORESTS - London, July 11.—Octavus Char-| les Beale, past president and now official representative in London of, the Associated Chambers of Manu facturers of Australia, makes an at tractive suggestion for the shorten ing of the war. He wishes the Allies to follow the example of Genral Sherman in the American Civil wai,j who devastated Georgia because it was the "granary of the rebellion." Following are the salient features of Mr. Beale's scheme. One-fourth of the German en pire is under forests of pine and fir. Usually the forests are contiguous, t.he crops of grain and other food material occupying all the arable I space. The soil in the forests is poor, i and only a hard, dry undergrowth ; strewn with pine needles covers the surface. In summer all is dry and inflammable, the undergrowth, the bed of twigs and pine needles, the bark and branches of trees them selves. i A series of squadrons of airplanes, each carrying the largest available I quantity of pellets of thermit, qf red ' phosphorus or other effective Igni | ting agents, can be sent at extreme altitudes on systematic lines across ! Germany. Simple dropping appara tus is required, actuated perferably by spring and clockwork, so that the circumference of the delivering ■ wheel shall drop with any desired rapidity the pellets from a contain i ing hopper according to the sped of ■ the airplane. The pellets, about the size of shrapnel bullets, or even less, are to ignite upon touching the ground. The time chosen should be in the early afternoons of July and August w h en the heat in Germany is usual j y great. The woods are then quite dessicated and highly inflammable, j Mr. Beale's is not only well ac quainted with the conditions of Ger m any over thousands of miles, but also with those of Australia, the United States and Cttlada. The ef fects of great grass and forest fires are well known in the three last named countries, and the calamity cannot be arrested when it has once attained a long line of advance No reference to "boards of inven tion" is needed; no intervention .of i i lawyer-chemists, be their prestige i ever so great. Every matchmaker has 1 all the information and facilities at hand, and, says Mr. Beale, there is '■ no time to waste. Even the simple clockwork to iusure the regular deli- ! very of the pellets can be dispensed with. Anything to save pretious time General Sherman had no such facilities, and with him it was only a question of ending the war oy dcs : troying the resources of the enemy, j The result showed that his was the j ture principle of action, for the Con federacy never recovered from the 1 blow. There is no defense possible to the enemy other than roofing his country with grass, and there arc no such forests in England to be so des troyed, the very word "forester" be- ! in*as obsolete as "Fletcher',' the ar- ' rowmaker. In the woods that exist, hinted and scattered, neither the ucCc nor the undergrowth ara 03 - penally inflammable. Much the same applies to France, and moreover, there is little or no chance of any at tempt m that country by thî G ci ir,a..à, because success could not he e> peeled. Baton Rouge was the first city in the state to adopt an ordinance against the use of wood shingles as roofing in the campaign of fire pre vention.

Some of our readers may be able to add to the information we give here. The army hoists its flag At sunrise and hauls it down at sunset.

Bicknell, director gen eral of the American Ited Cross, and a member of the executive board of the Boy Scouts of America, has been In conference with other officials at the Boy Scout headquarters, working out definitely the plans proposed for the co-operation of the 258,0()0 scouts and scout officials with the Red Cross in its war work. Doctor Bicknell is enthusiastic about the prospect of efficient aid by the Boy Scouts of America in various branches of Red Cross work. In the first place every boy scout receives, in his regu lar scout training, instruction and prac tice in first aid and life-suving, and many scouts have gained such high pro ficiency In first aid that they have ob tained the Merit Badge, which the scout movement offers. The second factor muking for effi cient co-operation with a great relief organization like the Red Cross, is that the boy scouts, wherever located, in big cities or In hamlets, are organized In definite groups and are under re sponsible adult leadership. This lead ership can be reached quickly with the information as to ways to help, togeth er with instructions, from the national headquarters of the movement. Thus it is that more than a quarter of a mil -1 Bon men and boys with special train become partners of the National I Red Cross in the work it has to do to ! " eet ltS tremendou ® and steadi,y ia ' CTeaslng responsibilities In war time. Service of local groups of this kind can be given more effectively in co-op eration with the local chapters of the American Red Cross. And local scout leaders everywhere have been advised to immediately acquaint themselves with the local Red Cross need. BUILDING THEIR OWN CABIN. Scouts have no need of carpenter** in their campe. ONE BOY'S "WINTER GARD EH" Boy Scouts are planning to make their gardens 100 per cent efficient, by not allowing a single pea or potato to go to waste. Mr. Benson of the United States department of agricul ture, strongly urges all amateur gar deners to do the same. -- ----- "A little boy, who learned canning from our department, wrote me that he had raised four gardens from one little piece of ground," he says. "His spring crop, he said, was one garden, his summer crop a second, and his fall crop a third. His fourth was a •winter garden.' He said the latter had 27 rows, and 18 hills to a row. Bach hill, he added, was a one-quart jar. filled with preserved vegetables which: his other three gardens had produced. In his Vinter garden' he bad 'one row' of corn on the cob, two Tows' of corn off tbe cob and one 'row' each of carrots, spinach, cauliflower, cabbage and other vegetables. "Canning will be just as Important, ■ part of the Boy ScouUf work as rals-i Ing vegetables." THINGS SCOUTS CAN Da Organize gardening dabs in your school. Assist the school authorities In a planting plan for the whole school,, then make sure of vacation instruc tion and supervision of this garden. A crop can't grpw during a three months' vacation without care, any more than a healthy scout can take a week-end hike without food and water. Each scout should organize an em ergency foqÿ conservation patrol. Se cure nine others not scouts to grow some food products—men, women or children eligible. Have each of them ngree to do something us suggested in this issue. There is no scout who can't secure nine other people to se lect and do at least one thing sug gested. Get vacant lots to nse and have your scoutmaster assign them as requested to anyone who applies. Real estate dealers are glad to co-operate in many cities. A weed patch this year should be a disgrace to a community. A "slacker" troop is a weed patch in scouting. Get busy. Let every patrol become a Leaders' Reserve Corps. Impress the fact of your leadership on, others. The great est need in this food emergency cam paign is for leaders. It is of grave importance that everything possible be done to fuynish this leadership. A scout never fails In an emergency.
