Steel Pits Rapidly Taking the Place of Old Style Pits. As we drive over the country and see the numerous pumping plants in operation, we cannot help but wonder at the great improvements that have been made in pumping machinery within the past few years. The old style of digging a deep pit, was a slow, as well as a dangerous process. Often we have heard of someone having to stop before having. gone halt deep enough. because of quicksand or too much water, and the consequence would be that when the water level had gone down, as it al ways does in pumping season, that the owner of this plant could not get the anmoun, of water he needed. But now, things have changed. In stead of the old way of digging great holes in the ground, we now have the improved steel pit, which can be put down to a great depth without the need of a man exposing himself to the dangers of the old style pit.. It used to be a common occurrence to hear that "Mr. So and So's" pit had caved in and covered his pump. When this happened he was sometimes compelled to go to the expense of nut ting down a new well. This usually meant that the profit on his crop was gone. With the new steel pit all repairs to the pump can be mare from the sur face of the ground without any danger whatever. With the new steel pit you can have your pump set at a depth where you know the water will never go below it, and you will not have to prime your pump every time you want to start up. Many of the planters are now using gasoline engines instead of steam. This is a great advantage over the old way, as with the gasoline engine the engineer only needs to be at the plant a short time each day. whereas, with the steam engine, the engineer must be on duty all the time. This si an are of progress, and the Yankee mind is so busy with new in ventions that we predict it will only be a few years until the farmer will go out and see how much water his rice needs, and all he will have to do will be to step to the wall, turn an electric switch or push a button and the water will go just where he wants it. Welsh is in the heart of the well district, and any improvement in pumping machinery is quickly taken advantage of here. And, by the way, did you ever notice that the man who is in a position to furnish water for his rice just when it needs it, is usu ally a prosperous man? Subscriber. More Automobiles For Welsh. It is reported that several more automobiles are soon to appear in our midst, some of which are already ordered. Welsh, with her concrete walks, local telephone system and the new auditorium, which is soon to be built, will be surprising her larger, but less progressive sisters with sev eral more improvements, if bhe keeps the pace she has set. And why shouldn't she, located in the center of the finest section of the rice belt country? Fountain pens and fountain pen ink at the Journal Book Store. BAN ON NEER BEER. r Nothing With Any I'ercenrage of Al. I cohol in it Can be Sold. lin his charge to the grand jury now in session, Judge Campbell instructed them to indict sellers of so-called "nWer" beers without regard to the percentage of alcohol they contain. Judge Campbell says in his charge, "the parish of Acadia is a dry parish, the people having voted it dry, and anyone selling any malt, vinous or spirituous liquors, must be by you in f dicted, for no one has the right to sell any spirituous liquor or any ber 3 erage containing the least part of al- 4 cohol, be it under whatever name it is! t or may be called by him or them sell I ing it." Judge Campbell further says that the court will do its duty under and all circumstances in the matter. t It is expected that prosecutions of 3 "neer" beer sellers will follow, and t that the court will hold that the sale 3 of any beverage containing any per 3 centage of alcohol, no matter how small, is illegal and a violation of e the prohibition law.-Crowley Signal. Rev. W. B Logan Delivered Two Ex cellent Sermons at the Presby terlan Church Sunday. y Rev. W. B. Logan of Smithfield, s Ohio) arrived in Welsh last Fricay and preached two excellent sermons n Sunday, morning and evening, at the Presbyterian cburch, using as his r text for the morning service, "She hath done what she could," and in a e most impressive and logical manner u taught the lesson of living and giving ;, one's best to others. r The evening lesson of character building, was based on the text, "Is g the young man, Absolem, safe?" It! ý. was addressed largely to those of the e congregation who were parents. In e part, be said: "The boy that disdains e the authority of the home, defies the r, father and disobeys the mother de r velopes into the man who respects neither law of state or nation. That e the boy is not safe, is often because - his father is not sound." He also e paid a beautiful tribute to mothet o hood. e Rev Logan is a man of unusual LL talent and ability. His sermons are ,c logical and excellently delivered, in ir terspersed as they are, with bits of choicest literature from the master 1I writers, and bringing the lesson home a doubly impressive because of the lan n guage in which it is couched. He will , remain here this week, and next Sun o day morning will preach at 11 o'clock ir and in the evening at.8 o'clock. All i- who have not a regular place to worship are cordially invited.

A letter to the Journal, mailed at Markham, Texas, from Mr. Eduard Scharff, was received the latter part of last week, stating that be would probably return to Welsh in the near future, as he hals been unable to find anything as an investment, which compares faivorably a ith that which this vicinity offers. It will be remem. bered that it was due to the failing health of Mrs. Scharft that he dis posed of his interests here. Mr. Scharff and son Lynton, have a host of friends, who deeply sympathize with them in their recent loss of wife and mother, and who will welcome their return to Welsh. Household Goods For Sale. As I am going to leave Welsh in the near future, I will offer at I)rivate sale, my entire household goods, con sisting of one piano, four bed room suits complete, couch, chairs, sewing machine and numerous other articles.
