There is no doubt but that a large per cent of the degradation, disgrace ruin and crime among the young, spring from the habit of night prowl ing, corner loafing and kindred acts in city, town and hamlet all over this broad country. Any person who )keeps his or her eyes open knows this. Hun dreds of boys are out at night, and we all know that many influences for evil and none for good surround them continually. Acurfew restrictson may be d'cided as old-fashioned and Puri tanical, but the fact remains that there is vastly less night prowling in towns that have a curfew ordinance and en force it.--Bishop Enterprise. The above is true in every particu lar, and a strictly enforced curfew law would be of incalculable value in this town, where a person can go out on our streets at any time from dark un til long after midnight and find gangs of boys and occasionally girls, prowl ing around town when they should be home and abed. As a result of this there is being developed a class of young loafers and criminals, to handle whom will be a problem solved only by the strong arm of the law, in a very few years. That these are facts and not fiction will be 'resdily recog nized if we stop but a moment to con sider the course that many of these boys are pursuing, and the mile stones they have passed on the crim inal path. Let all lovers of law and order and the wellfare of the boys of our town, work for a curfew law. "HOW WOULD YOU LIKE TO BE THE ICE MAN!' ) Cusssed aid Discussed. --He Should bI SI'opular, Is He! ) First, how did you happen to have an ice man? As you know, our rice P mill runs but six or seven months during the year, and being desirous to give steady employyment to our men, as well as to bring a new and much needed enterprise to our town, we pu1 in the plant. At the time the plani was installed fuel oil cost about forty cents per barrel, What does it take to make ice? ) fuel and water. Water, like air, is ) cheap, providing you do not wish to change the temperature; then it's a fuel proposition. As stated: when the plant was installed, oil cost about forty cents per barrell: now it costs $) 1.40 per barrel. We found the rice milling season and the ice season would conflict, so that it was necessary to take the men from the ice plant to the mill before the close of the ice season, and as you know, sold the ice plant to O. S. ) Carr and Sons, and at the time we ) sold to them, with the low price of ) fuel oil, the plant could be run and ice sold at fifty cents per bundred weight, but with the advanced price of oil they could not make the plant pay, and turned same back to us. Profit ) ing by their experience, we advanced the price of ice to where we believed it would justify the price of fuel oil. We have been studying the situa tion and planning how we iright re duce the expense of the fuel and make ice at forty or fifty cents per Ihundred e weight, The average consumption of ice being only about two and one-half tons per day, an ice plant can not be operated at fifty cents per hundred weight with the present price of fuel oil and pay expenses, no matter what kind or size of plant used. We op. erate our plant on eight barrels of I oil for twelve hours, thus the cost of operating per day is as follows: 8 bbls fuel oil at $1.40 per bbl $11 20 fngineer - - - 3 00 Tank man - - - 200 Two deliverymen - 4 00 Two teams - - - 4 00 Cost of operating one day $24 20 Two and one-half tons of ice at fifty cents per hundredweight $25.00, and in the above statement we have not in cluded cost of repairs, machine oil or any of the incidentals which come along every day. Two ways we hope to cut down the expense of operating: First. We believe if the town can expend a reasonable amount for lights and the people generally would take lights, we would put in a plant and operate the ice plant at night while making lights. To be sure, a light plant of itself, would not pay, but in our opinion there is no one thing that will do as much toward at tracting people to our town as lights and good walks. Second. We have increased the ca pacity of our mill one-half and find wt a're )lll\ l)ur1irt ablout one-I: lf our ricte hulls aind with our inew Io'. cess ni hulls are put in the bran. ,\'e propose to erect a storage for chalff near the ice plant, and as the ice and light plant would corn.sume Sabout ione-half the fuel the mill con sullces, we make fuel enough for both plants. 'Thus, with fuel that cot, nothing, we cati miake cheap ice. Now if one ice plant can not he made to pay, while it is true two would make cheap ice, it will simply meani a sacrifice to everyone con cerned. It was a disappointment to us to have to advance the price of ice, bIut we feel that we were were directly respo n sible for the town baving ice the past two years at fifty cents, as all know we formerly paid seventy cents. when we could get ice, as when we have to depend on shippers-in from other towns, one is frequently out of ice, noi matter how hard they try to keep it on hand. Now, if the people, generally, or any set of men would like to control the ice trade, we will consider any reasonable proposition for our plant. We put the plant in in good faith to do what we could to advance the best interests of the town and our selves, and while we regret that we have not been able to give better serv ice, we have tried and will continue to tri until we give the public good service at the right price.

Considerable excitement has been aroused in oil circles by the finding of what is believed to be an excellent stratum of oil sand at a depth of about 1,f500 feet, in the old Company well, which is being sunk deeper by C. E. Smith of Port Arthur, Texas. I Mr. Smith who is one of the pioneer oil men of this section, has unbound ed faith in the Welsh field Last winter he leased a three and one-half acre tract from the Welsh Oil and Land Development Co. and began drilling deeper, one of the old Com pany wells, which had failed to make good at the depth to which it had been sunk. It is in this well that a stratum of what is believed to be a fine oil bearing sand, was reached. a few days ago. Jas. Bowen, the driller, immediately wired Mr. Smith who was in Kansas City, of the find. They are now setting the screen and preparing to test the well. Both the sand and oil in this fsatum has a different appeararnce from that found in the shallow ¶ells of the field and it is the opinion of oil well men here that the new well has gone below the seepage oil strata which have been penetrated heretofore, and entered a different stratum, which it is thougnt may be the basin or pool which is be lieved to underlay the Welsh field. Water Works and lee Plant for Welsh The Citizens' Ice Plant & Water Works Co. is the latest industrial organization of this place. The onew company, which is to he 2apitalized at $25,000, has its charter drawn upI and sufficient stock subscribed to warrant its incorporation. This coin dany is being promoted and the stock subscribed by citizce.is, f 'elt i, ;I ;tA vicinity, so that it will be strictly a home institution. The exact location of the plant has not been definitely decided yet, but it is expected that it will be located in the central part of town. There is no apparent reason why such a plant properly managed should not pay a fair dividend to its owners and be of great advantage to the town. There is nothing this town needs more than an adequate! system of waterworks, which would furnish a reasonable protection1 against fire and lower the rate of in surance, which in some localities is now almost prohibitive. The charter of the new companyl al so provides for the establishment of an electric lighting plant and a local teleplhone system, these, o.i course, are future contingencis. A meeting of the stockholders will be called in the near future for th. peermanent organ izatiou of the corn ,;vy. .To ..:z. ::ie c'hauf for Running Ice Plant. In a recent interviow with F. D. Calkins, President of the Gulf Rice Milling Company, he says that since they have put in their improved ma chlnery they are enabled to mill Ififty per cent more rice than they did last year, without utilizing any more power. As a result, they are making much more chaff than they are burn ing, requiring two men to haul it away from the chaff house. Mr. Calkins is contemplnting two methods for pre serving this excess of chaff. Oe Is, storing it in a large chaff house and the other is the securing of a machine for pressing it into blocks that can be preserved and used when needed. In either case, the preservation of this fuel is an economic problem that is worthy the careful attention of mill owners. We pay highest prices for hogs, pigs and swine. Model Meat Market. --** -.
