The Mayor is in dead earnest about enforcing this ordinance, as he started out to make Natchi toches mosquitoless, which means malaria-proof, and has accomplish ed great work, but thru careless ness, neglect or indifference, not intentional, we believe, but never theless not anv the less serious, the festive mischief-maker has been found on a few premises, where the owners should have been on guard, and propagating as rapidly as it does, trouble has been spread broadcast and all the good work done has counted for naught in those neighborhoods, so it is but mete and proper that the guilty ones should have the full measure of the law dealt out to them. A house-to-house inspection has been most carefully made by con scientious inspectors under -the personal supervision of a trained engineer, a government man, and householders owe it to themselves if oot to their neighbors and the public at large, to watch carefully and constantly, never relaxing their efforts to help keep Natchi toches mosquitoless, which after all is not hard work, as over half the battle has been fought and won and only eternal vigilance is necessary. Citizens of Natchitoches, watch out, keep on gnard, you've had fair warning, more than fair, as it hat been repeated thru the press, by dodgers and personally, and all the right-minded people are going to uphold the Mayor if be fines yon to the limit when he finds that you are not obeying the city ordinance ip regard to the mos quito. Cuttern? the weeds sad mowing the grass have been going on at Tourist Para this week, which » our mayor keeps juatars neat and attractive as can be, giving it per sonal supervision, which not only rebounds to his personal credit bat that of all Natchitoches. Tour ists by the wholes sie, who have enjoyed camping in this park mnen it was open to the public, have sung its praises far and wide, as proven by letters and messages received from distant states which ntion that travelers prate of the good camping ground, attrac tive, comfortable surroundings, delicious water ajnd other oomforts that hospitable Natchitoches pro vides for any and all tourists going thrn, the majority of whom find it as pleasant as convenient to spend not one bat two and three nights while enjoying the unusual opportunity of üshingand bathing/ without any penalties attached, A. matter of interest and im j portance, one that has stirred ni» quite a bit of ditconient on one side and satisfaction on the other, because of the question of equity concerned, has been the changes in assessments of the suburban lands of Natchitoches in accordance with instructions from the State Tax Commission. The list just com pleted has been handed ua for publication, bat it is impossible to give it in toto in this issue, bnt will do so later. However, we will note that a resume of the whole sliows the increase on sab urban land to be $90,295.00, other increases by the Commission $104,628; net increase by the Commission over Assessor and Parish Board $194,628. is The result from the Ant Cam paign baa fallen far below ex pectations, as while all the returns auay not be in, few remain to be beard from, and the amount totals only $850.00. This is a aérions disappointment and moat regret able, but we believe that if oar people really understood the serious necessity of fighting the Argentine Ant, they would have responded more generously and it is not too late to rally to the cause. Some excitement was occasioned Monday morning when it was learned that gas was struck out at the well on the old site nt Berry's Mill, referred to in these columns reoentiy, and many flocked out to see it When capped the flow stopped and the setting of n 6-inch pipe is in process at this writing, from which much is hoped nod prayed for. A new antomatio shnttlelees loom has been invented which it is believed will revolutionise the cotton manufacturing industry as it gives doable production pin« automatic weaving. as in to of BT THE WAT as Isn't it great that we are be ginning to appreciate the fascina tion and inspiration of the word "Yes" when a question is asked in connection with community projects? That we recognize its responsibility in meeting the is sues of life and destiny; send it oat as a sort of flagship in the fleet of decision that goes out to meet so many matters that are of "vital importance to our commun ity as a whole and each and every one of us individually. When we reach that point where we recognize the responsibility that we not only owe each other but ourselves in giving this hearty cooperation, then we will have come into our own true citizenship. The Diapola store on Normal Avenue for the past two or three months has been the nightly Mecea of the number who are interested in radio, where Ross, the ingen ious youngest son of the family, a lad who has not yet reached bis 16th year, has installed an outfit of his own making, and over it a number of good concerts, sermons, speeches, etc., have been heard by a great many visitors. This clever lad read and read until he was "fed up" on this scientific fad of the hour, which is proving to be one of the most valuable of all late inventions, then went ahead and installed bis plant, which from ime to time he has improved and expects to continue doing so until be gets it as good as the best. Another attraction under this same roof are importations from Spanish Honduras, a night mon key, which is a perfect replica of a teddy bear, and a parrot, so a regular monkey-and-parrot time is going on all the time. These cariosities are the only ones of their class in Natchitoches and are well worth the seeing, which their kind mistress is only too glad to have any one visit who feels so inclined. _________ _______ ,__„ WiM which lias been the hottest of the It seemed the higher the ther mometer cliraed the past week. summer, the higher the social spirit was stimulated, as early j fnL 9 lowed by breakfasts, late evening and night swimming and supper parties with bridge luncheons, card parties, hay rides, evening and night picnics at Grand Ecore the dam or Tourists' Park sand wiched between, followed not only on each other's heels, but some days as many as three and four parties conflicted to the distress of ose who were bidden guests to all. They" cause ua the most grief dominion that we really begin to Of all the tyrants iD the world as what THEY think dominates roost of us entirely, and it is only when we get out from under iheir live. Some one once said to woman who had attained success in her chosen work, but who was exceedingly independent, "You care so little for thé opinion of other people, I wonder you have won out." "Ah!" she said, care so tremendously what myself will think of me, that it keeps me right." We cannot live so every body will approve but if we live ao that each of ns may say confi dently every day, "Myself re speots me," they of our world must respect us even though we do not always do exactly as they dictate. It would be well if we could make it a law that every man and woman mast register as soon os they came of age and take the oath that the youths of Athens took when they reached man's estate, the fulfilment of which made that ancient city, the model as well as empress of the world thru the ages. The Athenian oath We will never bring disgrace on this, our city, by an act of dis honesty or cowardioe. We will fight for the ideals and sacred things of the city, both alone and with many. We will revere and obey the city's laws and will do onr beat to incite a like reverence and respect in thoee above os who are prone to annul them or set them at naught. We will strive increas ingly to quicken the public's sense of civic duty. Thus, in all these ways, we will transmit the city, not only not less, bnt greater and more beauti ful than it was transmitted to us. room it to of A Word of Warning from the Mayor to the Public a of a The Malaria Campaign has been a success so far as the Board of Health and the City's part of same ; if concerned, but through neglect or carelessness of some of our citizens, mosquitoes are being bred by the thousands, and it looks as though it will be a hope less case unless the Ordinance for Prevention of Mosquito Breeding is enforced. Therefore, Inspectors are here by instructed to make arrests in all cases (NO EXCEPTIONS) where breeding is found on prem ises. (Signed) T. E. POLEMAN, Mayor. Section 7 of Mosquito-Breeding Ordi nance: Any person who shall violate anv provision of this ordinance Bhall in each conviction be subject to a fins of not less than one ( 91 . 00 ) dollar or more than twenty-five ($26.00) dollars, and in default of payment shall be sen tenced for not less than one (1) day nor more than ten (10) days on the public streets, both at the discretion of the Mayor. Court House News On Saturday night during the progress of the services at the Association in East Natchitoches Jeff Osborne, Jr., (colored) of the Moffett place got into a fuss with Lawrence Berryman over one of their lady friends, the fuss went into a fight and Osborne drew a knife, slashing right and left and before he could be stopped, cut his rival so seriously that he died from the wounds the next day. Osborne was arrested Saturday night and put in the calaboose for disturbing the peace and fighting, but when the serious rature of the fight was learned he was tam ed over to the Sheriff. In Csmpti Saturday afternoon Allis Goodson shot and killed his father-in law, Burl Stewart, after a quarrel, during which it is said ytewart cursed Goodson aud when he drew a stick of wood as if to striae him the young man, who was holding his baby, hand ad it to his wife, drew a gun and shot five times, two bullets, wounding Stewart, who died immediately. Fam ily trouble had been brewing a long time, Stewart being opposed to his daughter marrying Goodson and tried to force her to leave him, and this last attempt, the son-in-law determined to j fight to the bitter end, which ended in 9 dfi&th.
