Sunday night this section was visited by a teritlic electrical storm and a steady down pour of rain for hours. The "'rain-fall was not only local bnt began so far north of us that all streams were swolen and a volume of water passed into Bogue Chitto River which was so far beyond her carrying capacity that the surrounding country on both sides of the river bed, was cover ed with a depth of water up equalled in history with the ex ception of the 1900 overflow-an 18 foot rise and a reach of three miles across. The river at this place was al ready well tilled from last week's rains and the overflow began in the night, the rise coming so rapidly that by six a. m. Monday it had reached the hibghest mark since 1900. The guage showeda rise of one iunch every 81-2 minutes for sev eral hours, after which it became more gradual and reached a standstill at 4 p. m. when, it began to slowly recede. There was no loss to stock and very little to property, the great. est concern being felt however, for the construction work on the highways which has not had time to settle and in all probability will require rebuilding in many places, Outside reports show more or less damage done thruout the section from Brookhaven south, the Berry crop of Tangipahoa reporting a loss of $115,000,000, principally due to delay in ship ping while railroad bridges are out. Washouts above have stopped all trains at Franklinton, and trains from New Orleans have been an hour or more late. Re= pairs are being rapidly made however, and the country will be normal by the close of the week. Uncle Sam's Income.

Alooholic beverages netted $140, 000,000; non-alcoholic drinks $57,. 000,000 and theaters $82,000,000. Taxes on musical instruments were nearly $14,000,000. Functions of the Heart. The human heart is like a millstone In a mill; when you put wheat un der it, it turns, and grinds, and bruIses the wheat into flour; if you put no wheat in, it still grinds on; but then it Is itself it grinds and slowly wears away.--Luther.

What seems the sanest and most effective solution of tbe dip. ping question was outlined here and elsewhere in the parish this week by Prof. R, L. Himes of the Cattlemen's Association of the state. Mr. Himes does not represent the government but is in the em ploy of cattlemen and is going out to help the farmers get rid of ticks with the least trouble and expense to the individual and with a surety of being able to ship their cattle within six months, Mr. Himes asks that all far. mers meet him in Franklinton Saturday, March 19, when the plan that the farmers outlined themselves will be discussed and an agreement made for getting help from the Police Jury. The plan is that the local cattle owners themselves take the dip ping in hand and working to gether, get every man's cattle dipped on the same day and hire their own local inspector, to be paid for by the Police Jury. If you are interested in get. ting this work surely and com pletely finished by fall, be on hand Saturday and see how sim ple a matter it is and see how you can have part in it.
