Success Lies In Mutual Service. *
The eatire civilized world seems In one of those periods of un
certainty that usually portend a change for the better. It Is time for
every man to roemwber that Ood is still overhead and our brother
man beside us.
Buch times as theo are necessary to test our falth and courage.
In the meantime we should grow every pound of food we can.
Theor is no work Ilke Team-Work.

POWERFUL WINDSITORM
Quite the worst storm experlenced
In West Peliciana for some years was
that of Saturday afternoon, the rain
accompanied byhv stlrong wind. The low
er part of the parish and the town
aeemed not to catch the full force of
the wind. but from W. . Ri.chardson's
on up. the wind did much damage.
and particularly aloLng the L R. & N.
On the Schlesinerr tract and land
adjolning t Ist estimated that over
500 trees were blown down. The scene
presented ia like that of a syltematic
clearing The warehouse at W. H.
Richardson's was blown off its sup
ports. and his tall siallo blown dowa.
The barn at R. i Stlrling'a was tom
pletely destroyed. Mr. J. M Barrow's
barn was also blowt down Hete and
there cablns were blown down. For
tcnately no one was Inhered.
. II. Stilrllng relates thbat three
safes on his back igaller)y, filled with
preserves in jars, were blown Intu the
* yard and only one smaaall glass broken.
MORE THAN SHE ARGOAINEb FOR
There is an amusing example of the
ambIguitles that lie hidden In our
Rngllish tongue In the following story
that we found In a recent newspaper.
A lady, according to the narrator, wrote
to an army offictrr at Fort Sam Houston
as follows: "Mrs. Smythe requests the
pl-asure' of ('apt. Hunker's comlpay at
a dinner onl July 17, at seven o'clock "
The ne.t day she received this note:
"Wi(h the exceptlon of three men
who have the mearles and one who is
! in the guardhouse. C('apt. Bunkter's coa
pany accepts iMrs. Smythe's kind Iarv
I, tatios with pseure.'"
