The young man is now stationed at Norfolk, Va., and was 22 years of age when he enlisted on July 7th. Upon complet ing his education, he was employed here for several years by the Char geois Pharmacy and Wells Fargo ft Co. The photograph was taken at his naval headquarters and is repro duced through the courtesy of the New Orleans Daily States. As soon as the state engineers can arrange, 100 miles of main pub lic roads will be built as well as number of lateral roads. If Lafayette parish with its ex perience in road building gets the State Highway department to con struct their roads, why not do like wise, especially if the state will con tribute a sufficient sum to link the Old Spanish Trail paralleling the Southern Pacific Railroad in St Martin parish and connecting same with the parishes of Lafayette and Iberia.—Weekly Messenger. ANTI-CRUELTY. Cruelty to animals should in some way be reduced to the minimum it effectually prohibited. And it is safe to predict that with the on ward stride of chirstian reforms the amount of cruelty will be gradually lessened until we will wonder at things that were permitted and are now usual and frequent It is prob able that this needed reform will ad ARGENTINE SENATE VOTES FOR BREACH ! WITH GERMANY Buenos Aires, Sept. 19.—The Ar gentine Senate, by a vote of 23 to 1, today declared for the breaking off of relations with Germany. The resolution now goes to Chamber of Deputies. There strong public feeling in favor of final passage. the 1 1 ! j I - j i vance with others ,for great move- j ments are interlocked and related j and one reform cannot make prog-1 ^ ress without affording an uplift to ^ the rest. But as hopeful as we may be yet definite hard aggressive work is required in order that the advance j of the anti-cruelty^ crusade should be as fast and great as possible and made continuously. That organiza tion should be encouraged and mon ey freely used in order that inform ation be liberally given and the law vigorously executed who can consci entiously question. In this era of ri effective mail and phone service instances of cruelty should at once be reported to proper authorities in the country, in the village, town or city. It is quite certain that a few examples of law execution will not be without a beneficent effect upon many who manifest a proneness so cruelly. We believe too, that anti cruelty should be taught in the schools. In hartr ony with lessons of temperance and peace, children should be taught the baueful, harm ful effects of cruelty—baneful to perpetrator as well as victim. Such a course will be eminently practical and cannot but enhance the temporal and moral interest of all classes. It does seem that in the vast amount of legislation in city councils, state leg islatures and congress that the crea tures which God has given us both for enjoyment and convenience should receive ample protection in enactment and enforcement of needed legislation.—Ex. Cruelty to animals in this com munity and vicinity constitute the rule and not the exception. Not on ly negroes—who. are notoriously cru el to animals—seemingly having no conception that the brute creation can feel or need to be •fed, and the ignorant classes, practice cruelty to dumb animals—but many whose ed ucation and enlightment should teach them mercy are guilty. Some plant ers work their mules with horribly galled shoulders and skinned sides, and business men and factory own ers allow their drivers to beat and whelp their stock unmercifully. Just let your observation range awhile and see if this is not a true indict ment.—Cosat Herald. to of ta, of Eye Troubles May Be Corrected By Glasses Correctly fitted glasses are the so lution to most eye troubles.

CANE GROWERS NOT SATISFIED The cane growers are about the only people not receiving fair treat ment from the Government. We believe the time has come for the cane growers to realize that the wish of the United States Government and people is to destroy the sugar industry. They should come to gether, organize and take the maL ter up with the sugar houses, in or der that the local refiners agree to make no more, raw sugar, but make a sugar to be put on the market in competition with the sugar trust and not be at the mercy of the trust and continuous attacks of congress and the government. Unless sugar can be made stable and profitable and reliable, the best thing for the small grower to do is to quit, cultivating the cane.—Week ly Messenger.

RAIN OF BRITISH SHELLS STRIKES TERROR TO BERLIN Ever Increasing Fire Ail Along Flanders Front Felt To Be Ominous Eombanlmvnt by ih< British a 1 1 i 1 - ery of the German lines in the Ypres sector in Flanders continues most intense in force. An attack on a larger scale than the usual raids probably is imminent. Berlin apparently is much exer cised over the ever-increasing vol ume of shells from the British big guns. From the Houthulst wood, northeast of Ypres, to the River Lys, on the Belgo-French border, Berlin reports, the British fire has been de structive. Field Marshal Haig's ar tillery increased its volume of shots to drumfire several times. As on the front in Flanders and Artois, there has been no major operation on the French portion of the western front. At several points from the Aisne valley to the Lor raine the French have made raids into the German defenses. Here, too, the expenditure of ammunition is great, especially on the Aisne front and northeast of Verdun. The Italians have been more ac* tive on the Trentino front, harassing the enemy with raids and strong artillery fire. In a forward move ment near the Carzano, in the Su gana valley, east of Trent, the Ital ian captured 200 prisoners. Austro Hungarian attacks on the Bainsizza plateau continue, but General Ca dorna's men have held them for no gains. , Check a cough or cold in the lungs before it develops a serious case.
