;Q We
Greet our friends. It takes faith; it takes courage; it takes energy to rise
from beneath the calamities that have befallen this business since its
founding some fifteen months ago, and we hardly feel sufficient for the
º occa ion, but we are b. fore you, no N, just at the closing of the year 1914,
Sxwith all it. trials, troubles and misfortunes and in the beginning of the
I#new year !195 with its hopeful anticipations of the future, thoughtful f
and thankful for your kindness, encouragement and patronage during
the old year.
" `W"e have had our losses, troubles and sorrows, and you have doubtless had
yours, but lei's come together and forget them, as far as is possible, and strive
to imtake the new year better, brighter and more prosperous than any before it.
fIn a wxay our country and our lives are what we make them. So let's make them
® better and brighter every day that we live. We
tWil Continue
to try. WSILL YOU?
f We have secured the services of Mr. N. D. Stringer, of Osyka, Miss., who
" many of you already know. He and Mrs. Burris will be in active charge of af
Sfairs. We feel sure that a man could not have been secured that could any
n.ea re1, \we believe, take the place of the late Mr. Burris, whom you all loved and
0 honored so highly.
f We shall endeavor to conduct the business upon the same principles on f
f which it was founded-"Buy and sell for spot cash the very best at the lowest
f price possible"-the only hope
In Business
f XWe want also to stick close to our late young manager's motto: "Keep
1our guns trained on the high cost of living," and to help our friends, as far as it
® is possible, to become happy and prosperous.
f Will you help us? Some have, and have profited by it. We can see from
their bright eyes and quick step that they are having better times. Won't you
fdo so, too? You that have, and are satisfied, speak to your neighbor; tell him off
fthe good things you are getting, Another customer added will enable us to do
Sbetter for all of us. Let's get together, stand together and pull together for f
f better and more prosperous times.
SNow, we have told you that we are going to try and keep our guns on the
"High cost of living," and we are, but theire is something for you to do also, andf
f that is KEEP POSTED, know what you are doing before you invest your hard
earned savings.
We have some things that we are going to close out, others that we want
to sell; there wilil be some bargains all along, so don't miss them. Come in and "
Ssee us, inquire, watch our show windows, and by all means-KEEP A KEEN *
f EYE ON THIS SPACE! If you do not you are going to miss fine connection,
f and some other fellow will get the plum.

New Plan for (Girls' Canning 11
Club Work.
Miss Allice S. Keeler, State
Agent in charge of Louisiana Icl
Canning Clubs, attended the an- pl
nual meeting of State Agents p
held in Washington, D. C.. Dec- ft
camber 14-18. b
As a result of this meetingz, an Iru
effort will be made to place the
work of the canning clubs on a bi
self-supporting basis, wherever al
possible. The country agent eC
will assist the girls to find mar- 13
kets for their products and will jU
encourage them to make the ir
canned packages so attractive in
that they will have a ready sale. al
Man of the products may be h
marketed by parcel post and
special attention will be paid C
this feature of the work. Poul- a
try clubs will be organized and p
1 they are expected to help out
f the financial end of the club
W ork.
The girls will be taught how
Sto make attractive but inexpen- h
Ssive containers for marketing s]
r their canned products. These C
containers will be made of na- y
tivr materials, and in Louisiana, g
oak splits, piue needles, palmet- si
to. etc., will be utilized for that
s purpose. Spanish moss will be
used for packing. I
Markets for Club Members'
I have arranged to sell to a
local grocer all canned tomatoes
put up by the club girls at a good
price per dozen cons. Hereto
fore, girls have been discouraged
by the fact that there was no
market for their canned goods.
Four of the pig club boys have
bought registered pigs, and sever
al more will do so soon. This
community is composed principal
ly of northern settlers who are
just getting well started in farm
ing. The pig club work is prov
ing popular %ith them, as they
are accustomed to having blooded
hogs,and I look for good results.
