We understand that farmers are re ceiving as much as 70 per 1000 pounds for their seed cotton from this establishment. Iberia Getting Good Roads The members of the Police Jury have taken steps to call an election to issue bonds for the building of gravel roads in the Sixth Ward of this Parish at a near distant date. | The call will be published in the nextU number of the Enterprise. From ; what we learn, it is also the intention . H of the Board of Trustees of New Iberia to call an election for the purpose of gravelling the streets of the entire city. Main Street will be paved from the Post Office corner to the upper limits and a part of the tax will be used to meet the portion that falls upon the City to assume. Of course this work will not be done until after the sewerage system is completed. There are but few Main Street property holders opposed to this improvement and it begins to look like the present administration will witness the completion of this important civic work.—New Iberia Enterprise. ( From Rayne Tribune On the other hand, if a young mar the tus new ried man should not claim exemption of it might be accepted at home as an indication that he considers that there are worse things than war.
