MORGAN CÏTY ROY
Edward Caillouet, an alumnus of
the Morgan City High School, who
recently moved to New Orleans
with his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Fred
Caillouet, has become one of Uncle
Sam's Naval Mechanics. 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

VOTES FOR BREACH !
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
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
Cruelty to animals in this com
munity and vicinity constitute the
rule and not the exception. Not on

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

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

Unless sugar can be made stable
and profitable and reliable, the best
thing for the small grower to do is

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

plateau continue, but General Ca
