WEEKLY Publiahed Every Thursday Morning Entered at the Post Office as Second Class Matter. Mr«. Oammllla L. Breazeale Editor and Proprietor Subaorlptlon SI.50 Per Year Invariably in Advance. | Communications are solicited, but we will not be held responsible for any views contained therein. Official Journal Parish of Natchitoches « •• Parish School Board. « City of Natchitoches. Fire Prevention Week Very special attention is called I to the proclamation issued by the Fire Marshal in regard to the observance of FIRE PKEVEN TION WEEK, which will be gen erally observed all over the State, The reminder is timely, as we are just on the eve of the fire sea son, and it is a ciyic duty incum bent upon every man, woman and child individually and collectively to observe preventative rules and precautions not only during this week, but at all times. ' Statistics prove that most of the fires are the result of negligence and carelessness and the first thing to do during the period named should be to inspect homes and business places, locate all danger | spots and remedy them, clean chimneys, remove all inflammable debris and do it all thoroughly. Children, too, must be impressed with the importance of fire pre vention and the fire marshal sug gests special instructions and fire drills in all the schools during this week, and if everybody goes into this movement as they should and MUST, fire losses and fire risks both to life and I property will be I materially reduced. Mr». Harding's Humanity When President Harding ap pealed for the life of a devoted dog condemned to death under a 'Apsy lvani a lay prevëlfcJtfh aliënTrbm own ing one, he acknowledged that he j $ was acting at Mrs. Harding's sug gestion. His kindly interference j. in behalf of a faithful dog com manded tbe widest approbation. La Another evidence or expression of J. the true-born humanity of Mrs. Harding was made manifest with tbe presentation of her check for $100 to "Clover," the fifty-one- C. year-old horse of Catawissa, Pa., an account of whom was published in the September "Our Dumb An- & imalj." In her letter to "Clover's" owner, the Rev. Dr. Myers, she expressed herself "deeply moved by the sense of justice and grati tude and faithfulness which com pels yon to ncrifioe your comfort I rather than kill a splendid horse which has given yon a long life of J willing servioe. ard It seems a strange ingratitude," the letter continues, "that de- 1 mande such a sacrifice because yonr failure to attain wealth has not made a cruel and inconsiderate one master of yqu. "For example's sake I hoœ ford Clover will long continue to be the oldest hone in the world, and I that somehow there will grow an impression that the loving God I t * never intended either damb friends | or self-escrificing men to be con signed to mother earth merely because the most and best of their strength has been exhausted ha man service." i in f for Whenever a banquet is given in Chine, no less than fifty courses I are ever served. of There are 115,000 miles of paved or surfaced highway« in the Uni hi States.

Two years «go, he noticed a stalk with red, rather « maroon colored (eaves, bolls and ■talk in the midst of the other cotton that wee oovered with boll meevila, apparently immune, so I he ideated some of the seed, which I reproduced perfectly and noticed I a the second year that all the cotton ed aarrounding, was damsged by tbe I weevil,' while this variety con- J wage immune. . (pay The Ant Campaign The folio wins letter regarding [the campaign in which so many are interested speaks for itself. Incidentally, we would add the bill of lading has already been re | ceived and the material will be on band shortly, so every effort will be made to start the work quite a bit before the date mentioned: but any New Orleans, La., Sept. 30, 1922. Mr. Keyser, Secrètary, 0. of C., Natchitoches, La. Dear Mr. Keyser: Material for your Ant Campaign will be sent to your city sometime within the near futùre and will have a man from the department there with you to put on this I work, the We will be slightly delayed in the getting there owing to the fact that we have a number of cara paigns to put on and are working with them in the order in which we they came in for their materials, and also on account of the fact that we are very limited with men, but you need not be bothered in the least as to the delay, on ac count of the fact that we started this work unusually early in the season. If this work is put on by the 15bh of November you can ex pect maximum results, You can be assured that we will give you attention as soon as it is possible, and should I be able to | be of service to you at any time I do not fail to call on me.

The prize was won by a group of twenty five or thirty girls whose costumes formed various shades of the col ors of the rainbow. A toast was proposed to the winning rainbow by Ruth Vernon: "May your troubles always be followed by rainbows." A unique feature was the formation of the girls who wore black or other dark colors into the cloud that always precedes a rainbow. ..Many games were enjoyed by the members of the two organizations, over four hun dred in number.
