True, ai little tim' might le saved iby e
thoise li\ing il a Ieliotte part of the '1

woullld the amlount of tillle thul. saved it

There is about as much logic ill the 'I
arg nlielt of the advocates of parish
e division as there was inl the argumel t at
of the negro who bought corn at lifty ti
cents a bushel anid after hauling it e
tenl miles to market, sold it at fifty Iy
cents a bushel. Hle never iilallade anll
ithing, he said, but just look at the tl
Shbusiness lie was doing. I

certain the cause of this mole for
parish division. It woiuld let a lot of
petty ofticials follhow tile shade around (I
the court holuse and draw their per

* their brain and muscle. O(f course
these wiou-lde otlicials have some
following, but it is earnestly hoped 1
not enough to say whether the parish
shall be divided. For the majority of
the people residing in Calcasieu it
- would not better conditions, and it to
were well to let well-enough alone. If
the parish allows itself to be sliced up
indiscr iiminately by the proprietor of
j a si(apv tongue, who had a dream
that the Iarish ought to he divided, p
and conceived the idea of getting
office between drinks, it will be found
that the rate of taxation will increase
I with a rapidity that would make the
stock market take a tack seat, At
Ipresent, the rate of taxation is lower
than it has ever been, and all of the
Saffairs of the piarish are in splendid p
condition. What would it be if the
expenditure of thousands of dollars t
annually became necessary to erect
and maintain court houses, jails, and
other public brildings, and to pay the
" salaries of a lot of men born with j
A that tired feellng? Verily, the divis- a

the ticks are used, including trans

Saturdlay's Game, Welsdh vs. Iowa.
The Welsh base ball -attm met their
old-timne enemy, Iowa. on the diamond
last Saturday and defeated them by a
score of 4 to 2. liv a burch (if errtrs
in the first inning Iowa was allowed
to make two scores. But Welsh corm
ing down from v'iewing the stars shhut
Iowa out for the last eight innings.
The support the Welsh boys gave
their pitcher, Dietrich, was something
to be proud of, the team making, but
three errors the whole game. Welsh
scored once in the first inning, once
in the second and twice int the fifth.
Russell behind the bat for Welsh
played an errorless gamne, but it took
the Iowa pilayers some time to find
out that he could throw to the bases,
catching live men on second. The
battery for Welsh were l)ietrich andt
ltussell; Iowa, Longenihaugh and
Patterson umpired a fair and iro
partial ganme.
Next Saturday the Welsh team goes
to lowa for a practice game. Boys,
get out and practice and bring home
the victory.

Good Time Leagues
Prosperlity leagues are heing organ

vestigations show that business is 4
rapidly becoming normal, and that
the majority of factories, railroad
shops, general olttices, wholesale

qluotar of mien furill timri'. Within thr'ie
niiitlhs thi. ,ountrJ ,vill find a greater
dernarid thrtrn 'ver Ibefore for bot)k
keeperls, stenographers and olperators,
owing to the business that has been
allowed to accumulate that rmust he

on, caused by the startingt of factories,
the marketing of ctols, Iprogressive
moves in all industrial lines.
