High School Dots.
The Franklinton high school
opened up on Monday. Sept. 8,
with an enrollment of 269 pupils.
A great number of these are
from the distant communities,
and are being kindly welcomed
by teachers. school mates and
the good people of Franklinton.
Judging from the general
movements, we have every rea
son to believe that the school
year 1913-14 shall bring better
results than have ever been real
ized before. Too much credit
caninot be given our new faculty
for the interest taken in the pu
pils and every line of work.
It seems that the new side
lines, Agriculture and Domestic
Science are more attractive in
the eyes of the pupils, than the
Literary course. There are only
two in the ninth, two in the 10th
and four in the 11th grade who
are taking the Latin course.
Some of our teachers are trying
to persuade more of the pupils
to take up the Latin, also Draw
ing and Singing. We have lis
tened to their urging and appre
ciate the value they see in each
subject, still we say we have not
the time for extras. However,
quite a number have agreed to
join the singing and Drawing

Legisliture.l HIts Shortest
Session in State's Annals.
Baton Rouge, La., Sept. 12.
Establishing a record as the
shortest session in Louisiana's
history and the most harmonious
in many years, the legislature
adjourned sine die shortly before
noon today, bringing to a close
the second extraordinary meet
ing of the present General As
sembly. While legally the legis
lature sat for live days, actually
the length of the session lacked
a few minutes of being four days.
The two houses were called to
order a few minutes after the
noon hour on Monday and ad
journed finally a few minutes be
fore the noon hour on Friday.
Harmony and good feeling was
the predominating note. Oppo
sition was voiced to only one of
the six measures proposed by
the administration, and that op
position amounted to only eight
adverse votes in the House and
two in the Senate. None of the
bills were amended in any sub
stantial respect. Such amend
ments as were adopted were
minor in character and were
aimed to cure defects and over
In concluding the work of the
session in five legislative days,
the members of the legislature
saved the state several thousand
dollars. Every additional day
would have meant an additional
cost of nearly $1,000. This dis
position to dispose of the busi
ness on hand in record time and
hold down the expense of the
session to a minimum prevailed
from the first day and proved a
great help to the program.
