A sample of the paper was brought to ■ our office, for our inspection by one of our citizens who happened to be in the mill at the time the trial ran was made. Later on daring the evening we had pteasure again in visiting thejb Plant, but when we reached there all of the pulp had al-. ready been converted _ into paper and we failed to witness : the machinery in motion._ Two other digestors were busily re- ' volving under an immense steam pressure, which takes | about seven hours, so we were i informed, and from now on Mr. j LOUISIANA TO EXHIBIT AT INTERNATIONAL SHOW.

Bogalusa, La., Nov. 16.— Plans for the erection of anoth er large paper plant, an addi tion to the Bogalusa Paper Co., were announced Wednesday by W. H. Sullivan, mayor of Bog alusa, following a dinner in honor of the forestry policy committee of the Chamber of Commerce of the United States at the Pine Tree Inn. It is un derstood the plant will cost more than $1,000,000 The mill will be an exact duplicate of the present one and will employ approximately the same number of men. It will utilize the remaining by product of the Great Southern Lumber Company, which is only look better and yield more in meat and eggs, but because it j Carstens with Mr. J perez as president; costs no more to raise pure bred stock than the mongrel. The fancier of course delights in raising poultry for exhibition. The Association was organ ized with the following gentle men constituting the first board of directors: A. A. LeMaire, Lionel Laperouse, James Col gin, W. D. Reynolds, Dr W. F. Jack Lam Robt. Pes son, vice-president and L. L. Lallande, secretary-treasurer.

Grounds Broken for High School Building i Ground was broken and the excavation begun this week by Caldwell Bros, of Abbeville on the elegant new High School structure to be erected in this City for the patrons of the pub lie schools of this Parish. The contract was awarded loss than three weeks ago and material is now being brought to the site where this magnificent modern seat of education will be erected, A spur railroad track from spur the corner of Pershing, is also under course of erection by the Frisco Lines in order to facili tate in the movement of the brick and other material direct fro, m the cars to the ground. This will not only save a great deal of time and money in transportation cost, but facili tate the contractors in making progress with the work. Ac cording to the contract and specifications the successful bid ders pledged themselves to have the building ready for the classes during the latter part of August 1922, and unless incle ment weather or other inter ferences ensue, we feel certain the School Board will not be disappointed. During the early part of the week Supt. Lloyd Porter re ceived several samples of pressed brick from the factories, TRAVELERS ON S. P. TO VIEW ELECTRIC SIGN. For several years the senti ment of a few business men of New Iberia were that a nice electric sign, indicating the J name of the City should be erec-i ted near the Sou i hern Pacific Depot, so that persons traveling East and West could get an idea that New Iberia was not only on the map, but up and do ing and appreciated the value of advertising. Recently Hon. Albert Estorge again called the attention of the directorship to the needs of the electrically il luminated display, pointing out its advantages as an advertising medium. He appointed on the committee to map out a plan of action, Messrs. C/ A. Barnes, Alphonse Davis and L. L. Ber trand. These gentlemen soon got together and closed with Mr. R. M. Reeves, for a sign to be erected in between the freight and passenger depot, at a cost of $300.00, and within a few weeks that section of New Iberia will be ornamented ac cordingly. We understand the electric letters will be fully two feet, containing the name "New Iberia." Directly underneath in nicely painted letters, so that it can be easily read will be the following inscription: "Queen City of the Teche." "Three of the Largest Rock Salt Mines in the World." "The Only Rice Straw Paper Mill in the U. S." and "New Industrial Plants Ex empted from Local Taxation." This should prove effective ad vertising and the cost is a mere bagatelle to the benefit we will derive from it. At night while the trains are now passing through, travelers have to in quire what City this is, because i| is almost impossible for them to see the sign on the top of the S. P. depot An electric sign can be read from long distances and will make an upon every stranger it.

S for the inspection of the School ( Board and on Wednesday a number of our citizens who are interested in the building, were ] invited to meet with the mem bers to suggest just what color j would be the most appropriate for the facing of the bunding, ( Cream and colored brick were piled upon one another, just as t though cemented to give the full effect. After a general dis cussion it was the unammous decision of the committee pres ent that the colored brick with white mortar was preferable as it will create a rustic appear ance. In fact it was com mented upon that within the past five years, many public buildings were built with cream brick and for that reason we should give the colored the preference. The brick were tested and found durable, in fact they are impervious to water and aside from that are artistic and pleasing to the eye, and even cost a few dollars a thousand less than the cream building material. The members of the School Board deserve a great deal of credit for getting this building under course of erection and the patrons and citizens generally look forward to its early com pletion.

Just off from the station, we could not do other than ob serve a sign of this kind, ^frhich R um 553 we would have gotten off to spend a few hours. Now, even had we disembarked, of course we would have returned to our good old home town, and had we remained there, we wouldn't have erected a Chas.Boldt Paper Mill either, but who knows but what some capitalist may drop off to look around and then re main with us and make an in vestment, either in the purchase of real estate, or in building a factory.
