Acknowledge Your Citizenship
Lack of interest in public af
fairs by many of the best peoDle
of the country is one of the most
serious menaces ot these days and
times. Those who would destroy
the peace and prosperity of the
country are interested enough to
play a big part in public affairs
and the best interests of the coun
try demand that their influence
be met by the votes of good
citizens.
The problem that confronts us
today is how to stimulate the lack
of personal interest so that the
citizens of the parish will awaken
to the realization of the fact that
their citizenship is an OBLIGA
jTION and not a privilege. One
|°I ^be best arguments along these
lines, made lately, was the sermon
preached at the Cathedral Sunday,
when Bey. Father Piegay drew
his points'so clearly that his con
gregation recognized that citizen
ship imposes certain obligations
and also impressed upon them that
it was their solemn duty to take
an interest in public affairs, not
meddle in politics but be of service
to their community and country
by performing their duty as citi.
zens, register, pay poll tax, and
vote intelligently upon all matters
pertaining to public matters, and
women in particular, now that
they have the franchise, must not
be indifferent to their right to uso
the ballot.

Mr. Porter kept his office open all

number 1,015 were women; 4,834

An Epoch Making Meeting
If the result of the meeting of
Tuesday comes anywheres near to
what the earnest interest of the
immense crowd in attendance
would indicate, then old Natchi
toches would have accomplished
just exactly what the citizenship
of our great old parish planned,
established the "entente cordiale"
between the parishes of the dis
trict so that they will join hands
and forces for Tick Eradication,
start the campaign for themselves
in 1923, not wait for the Federal
government's in 1925, so that this
whole section of the State will be
freed at once and the gates opened
wide for the cattle industry, for
which this country is so well
suited.
There were between 650 and
700 delegates from the eight par
ishes besides many other interested
visitors, among them a delegation
of 54 prominent business men
from Alexandria, who were royal
ly received and entertained as only
the hospitable citizens of old Nat
chitoches know how to entertain.
The program as published last
week was carried out, ail the
speakers being present except the
three bankers from Shreveport,
who were detained, but whose
places were taken by very able
representatives, Messrs. J. Glas
sel and J. Walker, secretary of
the Chiraber of Commerce, and
the auditorium of the High School
was crowded while the splendid
addresses full of practical sugges
tions were made, and an organiza
tion for voluntary dipping effected
which will accomplish all that is
necessary for the public interests
It was generally conceded that
the barbecue at Tourist Park was
the best that the enthusiastically
appreciative guests ever attended
when over 1,000 were bountifully
feasted on the most delicious
meats, beef, lamb, mutton, pork
pickles, bread, cakes and drinks of
all kinds, winding up with good
cigars, and before the crowd sep
arated, friendly relations were
cemented for the banding togéther
and working shoulder to shoulder
for the common good of this
whole district. Selahl

As provided in Section 15 amended,
of Act No. 211 of 1918 had before t^em
for consideration and action the follow
ing written protests to the instructions
of Che State Tax Commission instruct- '
ing the Assessor to increase the assess
ments on certain lands designated

said assessments under said instruc
tions was protested by the following
parties:

The hearing of these protests occu
pied two days and after hearing the
testimony produced and considering;
the action of the Parish Board of
Equalizers and conferring with the
Assessor who was present at all the
hearings and considering the cash
value of the lands not particular lots '
and not isolated small tracts but con
sidering the matter from uniformity

such properties the Board of Review
ers unanimously adopted the following
recommendations to the Honorable
State Tax Commission:
That the several protests named i

per acre.
2nd: All other lands in said class to
be fixed at the average sum of $65.00
per acre.
SeCTION THREE
VVe further respectfully recommend
to the Hon. Tax Commission that for
the reason that only a few of the land
owners filed written protests in pre
mises and considering that there are
many other persons interested who
omitted to file written protests but in
the interest of justice and of equality
of taxation and fairness this Board is
of the opinion and do recommend that
their assessment should also be de
creased and the recommendations as to
the valuation of the lands set forth in
Section Two hereby apply to ail lands
within said Suburban Land Class

In making this unanimous recom
mendation to the Honorable Tax Com
mission we wish to say that the
evidence is overwhelming and practi
cally unanimous as to the valuation of
the lands herein recommended.

to have money is to save it. The one sure
way to save it is by depositing it in a res

from the annoyance of having it burn holts
in your pockets, and aside from the fact
that your money will be safe from theft, the
habit of saving tends to the establishment
of thrift, economy, discipline and a general
