V 1 '1 ~"A: I 1 Boy scouts of Chicago, celebrated Lincoln's birthday with exercises at the famous statue of the mnancipator in Lincoln park. Their leaders arn shown placing wreaths at the foot of the statue Working Together at Both Ends. There is great hope of the final success of any great movement when hottest work begins at both ends of the line. The local community of the people themselves represent one end of the line in fire prevention and timber conservation, and the Goverment officials, Federal and State, represents the other end of the line. In so far as the Southern states are concerned, Louisiana is a leader in constructive conserva* tion laws. Louisiana has already adopted a school primer on forest ry whioh has gone to the press and will very likely be ready for use in the public schools of the atate of the next sohool year. There are two local communi* ties, we might say two parishes, in Louisiana deserving of men tion as leaders of thought and ac. tion in fire preveqtion and tim ber conservation. In LaSalle par. ish Henry I. Hardtner at Thania, in connection with his lumber in. dustry there, has done yeoman service for his state and parish in proving by experiments, what can be done. The farmers and people in this community lend their assistance and co-operation. Washington parish through the liberality of the Great Southern Lumber Company at Bogalusa and by the expenditure of con siderable timber and money in various experiments and the constant and persistent dissemination of literature and publicity matter of an education al nature, is rapidly coming to the front ranks ase a leader in the forest oonservation of the South. Here there is a willingness tr join hands with the forces at the other end of the line. By co-op. eration and united efforts there is power. Governing bodies closeet to the lives of the people are our parish polioce jurors and school boards. .R. D. Forbes says that the Police Jury of Washington Parish is the very first in the en tire state of Louisiana to officially recognise -the importance of for estry and fire control and to ap propriate funds to help his de partment in the several wards of this parish in carrying informa tion direct to the door of the peo ple. The following resolution un animously adopted -at a recent meeting of the Police Jury of this parish is informing: To the Honorable President and Members of the Police Jury of Washington Parish Louisiana: Your committee appointed to report on the advisibility of put ting fire patrolmen in Washington parish beg leave to report as fol* lowe: We believe that woods fires preventionis primarily essential to reforestration of young timber. That every effort should be taken to prevent fires, especially in the year 1921, on account of the heavy seed fall of 1980. That this question is an eduoa tional one and that it should be taught in the sohools and at home. That the laws on the subject are reasonable and should be ob served, that the Police Jury and Board of aliool Directors should help iff every way practicable and post uibli in the education of the pub (Gnikon lutgst BEFORE SPRING COMES, TONE UP YOUR BlOOD Your Blood Needs the Help of Gods's eptoaMangen in Sprigtirse to Over. come Drowsy, Listless Feelings Called "Spring Fever" PALE FACE CAUSED BY BAD BLOOD That Tired, Al-Gone Feeling a Danger Signal;That Your Blood Needs This Splendid Spring Toeic The blood that courses.tbhrouhb your body in the arteries and veins is-of the most vital import* ance to the healthy life of the body.
