The announcement that Ilingling Brother's World's Greatest Show will exhibit in Lake Charles Thursday, November 8th, will be received with more than usual interest by the peo ple in this neighborhood. The Ring ling Brothers have a name that stands for all that is new, novel and enter taining in the circusline, and the man agement announces that this season the show has been enlarged to such an extent that a whole extra train is used in addition to the four trains of last season. The show is now trans ported from place to place in eighty five seventy-foot cars, constructed es pecially for the Ringline Brothers. In connection with the circus proper, in which the arenic performance is ex celled, the Ringling Brothers are this season presenting the beautiful and sublime spectacular production of The Field of the Cloth of Gold. The pan tominmic plav necessitates t - use of 5 1,200 actors and actresws and of al most live hundred horses. It is pre. f sented on the lacrest stage ever used l • for exhibitiotal Puriposes. Special n exc',,rsion rates have been arranged for on all lines of travel by lRinling Brothers, and those who, desire t) glo to Lake Charles where this ,reat. cir cus exhibits Thursday Noyei,'ber 8th, can do so at a comparatively small e cost. This will be the only point in this vicinity where the circus will ex. hibit this season and no one sliouid miss this opportunity to see it.

UNCLE SAM AWAK.~ .. - uge UNCLE SAM AWAKES. and Liiat Golden Opportunities For Armericarn g in inrms In Latin-Armrerleuan Trade. tter Alf only of late years has any very de ad- termined effort been niade to recalpture ti- the business with Latin-American fr,countries which should always have been onurs, says 1i. \i. a;hler in a r, cent issue of ilapgcods OU)lparrtunities. 'si constantly increasing number of firms led now have extensive relations with the uI, southern republics, many of them on maintaining regular agencies, or even branch houses, at the principal poins. Tih Tlitted States government is giv un ing splendid assistance to the carn ie paign through the Bureau of A\neri rat 'an elpubllics and the Pan-American (ongress, which meets this year at 'd. ,io de Janeiro. The beneficenteffects tu- o(f these two institutions are already ed noticeable in the more uniform cus i- om laws and other regulationsbear ing on international trade. Situated as it is, with ports on both oceans and the (;u!f, the United States should easily dominate the import markets of Central and South Armer 3, ica, as it now does their ex ports. Act I. ually in many cases the bulk of the 20 money accuring from sales to the United States has been spent in Europe for the purchase of goods which we could have supplied at lower prices. We have been slow to realize the ex tent of the market to the South, where the richest territory in the world is r still practically undeveloped. Im it menue mineral and agricultural wealth 1 r. is to be found all over South America; I X timber, rapidly becoming an expen. sive luxury here, is even more plenti * ful in many districts than it ever was Y with us; the bulk of the world's coffea C f and chocolate, a large portion of its grain and live stock, and many of the - more important minerals are supplied by Latin-America. Tihe climate, so I far from being unhealthful and hot, is in most of the territory quite as mild as our own, even in the very path of the Equator. Politically, the larger republics are rapidly arriving. at complete stability: w •Mexico is quite as well governed as B the United States; Argentina and I Chile are almost as well off, and Col umbia-naturally the richest of thema all-is at length under a capable and ai honest administration which promises be great things for her future. Some of of the smaller states, situated in the trop- t ics, are still rather turbulent, but the general trend is toward permanent wi peace. ra Latin-Americans look up to us as ra the republic par excellence, even where we have given tnem good cause en to doubt our national integrity-as:in ab the case of Colombia. The implicit bei trust in the idea that "it is made in cot United States" is almost pathetic. i ha recall one request for a machine to "make it stop raining" and another to "prevent frosts." The people have faith in us commercially at least, and ' other things being equal prefer to buy from us, even though European repre. on sentatives are in the field and Ameri. tcis can goods must be bought by mail. 2D ,.I THE HABIT of regularly saving something from your income, is a matter of very grave impor tance to, you-4 e every man, woman and child. ' Those who have tried various ways and plans all say: "It is Caser to make regular savings when Syou hve a Baiik Account. S Another feature well worthy of consideration is, that the vaults of a Good Bank is the safest i )lace for your money. May we have your account? FIRST NATIONAL BANK, Welsh, Louisiana. L.E. Robinson.
