Welsh BAPTIST ORPHANAGE WORK DAY. November 6th Day on which the Bap- Supel tists of Louisiana, will EndeavorD3 to Raise the $10,000 Debt From ('Children's Home. An event of more than passing in- of th terest to the 55,000 Louisiana Baptists day and their friends, is their "Orphanage one Work Day," planned for Nov. 6, on the i which they hope to raise $10,000 for trad their orphans' home at Lake Charles. cour Upon a call from the orphanage to a board of trustees, an effort is being mor made to have every individual Baptist ity in the state make a contribution of roa( what he earns on this day. To aid in making the effort a suc- Cah cess, the Baptist Sunday schools in leas the state will make mite box contri- The º boxes made by the children of the or- for phanage. And under the airection of not Mrs. F. M. Hollingsworth of New but SOrleans, president of the Louisiana hat Baptist Woman's Missionary union, of I all of the ladies' societies in the state per will give some kind of an entertain- by ceeds to the fund. sol This amount is needed to pay off the an indebtedness on the property and an' a deficit in running expenses encurred of during the last two years. It is no small matter to. raise $10:000 in one ha f day from small contributions; however du the unitt and well organized plan is tin I securing such enthusiastic co-opera- of tion all over the state that friends of mi the institution are hopeful of realizing sti their fullest expectations on this day. tel The Baptist orphanage is a worthy W benevolence. In the nine years of its la existence it has cared for over 350 P, boys and girls. One of the commend- Pº able features of the work done in the cc institution is the industrial training. st given the inmates. P' There are seven distinct departments w of training, viz: stenogr aphy, print- ti ing, store, bakery, poultry, dairy and k gardening, by whicn the children are d prepared to take care of themselves r' when they leave the home. Such work done for the helpless or phans should commend itself to every f individual as being worthy of a llber- i al support, and it is to be hoped that C the $10,000 will be raised. t A Good Rice Yield Reported From Fenton A report from Monger's plant, north,est of ;Welsh, states that from 120 lbs of fanuy'long straw Jap sown onl 1 act s they threshed 52 sacks. That fs a good vield considering the + small amount sown per acre, each 28 m lbs of seed produceing more than 12 sacks, Estimateing it to weigh 198 lbs per sack it would be 10,296 lbs of rice, from the 120 lbs sown. This rice is a fine grade as no red rice has been found in it, It should command a I good price as good seed of this varitey E is scarce with a good demand. A sample of this rice can be seen at The Journal Book Store. A Few Large Rice Tields Reported. all T. B. McMillian, of near Roanoke ssing reports a yield of 1717 sacks of Japan rose- rice off from 100 acres, and ninty aw: acres more on the same farm yielded E , Mr. W. G. Wilson 13 sacks to the . 8 acre. These are exceptionally fine Sec. yields for any year and especially so for this one when the majority of the r. yields are below the average. Messrs O. McMillian and Wilson are to be n. congratulated upon their fine yields. CONVICTS MAKING GOOD ROADS. "1 --" N Superintendent J. K. Martiin (ives In. teresting Data on C'ost of B Building Roads. ** The question of good roads is one * of the formost subjects of the present ~ day in this section of the state. It is S one that has a direct bearing upon h the prosperity of every line o(f work, " trade and profession, in the entire country, and hence is of vital interest to all. No other one thing contributes more to the development and prosper ity of any community than good f roads. In this matter, as in most others, " S(Calcasieu parish, has recently, at n least, been taking an active part. s The construction of the trans-parish highway, which has been in process for the past six months, has attracted, rf not only the attention of home people, " , but the people throughout the state a a have been watching with a good deal of interest, the outcome of the ex- " te periment of making public highways n- by the use of convict, labor. If this o. can be successfully done, it at once * solves two of the great questions of j ,ff the state: the building of public roads 0 ad and the successful utilization of labor ed of the state's convicts. no That this can be done successfully ne has been pretty clearly demonstrated er during the past five months, in which is time Mr. J. K. Martin, superintendent -a. of the convict road gang, has built of many miles of the finest roads of the ng state, at a cost thatcannot be duplica y. ted by the employment of free labor. by While this is recognized as true by a its large majority ot the people of the 350 parish, yet there is a feeling on the nd- part of some, that perhaps the present " the cost of construction is greater than it of ing. should be, and in order to let the people of the parish know exactly nts what it iscosting to build roads under T nt- the present system, Mr. Martin hasT and kindly consented to furnish us exact A are duplicate copies of his monthly pay T yes rolls for the past five months, from N which we make the following excripts: or- The figures gi ~en below are taken " ery from the reports accepted by the par ber- ish police jury, and give the net cost ti that of the work done, deducting from the c total cost. the cost of boarding the b prisoners at the rate that would have 'rom been necessary to pay, had they been kept in the parish prison and boarded ( by the sheriff, and including all ex rt, penses, such as clothing, tools, free rom labor, feed for teams, and everylihing ks. which the parish has been called upon theks. to pay out in connection with this h 28 work. n 12 Net cost for May........ .....727.16 198 No. yards dirt moved, 15,000 s of Net cost per yard................... 6 c rice been Net cost for July ................735.87 nd a No. yards dirt movtd, 13,000 ritey Net cost per v ard .................. 6c n A Net cost for June..... ....... $763,44 No. yards dirt moved, 19,250 Net cost per yard, ap rted . proximately ................. 4c noke Net cost for August.......... ..-668.14 int No. yards dirt moved, 14,000 ielded Net cost per yard, ap Sthe apoximatelvy ....... ........... 5c lso Net cost for September....... 1,024.54 t the No. yards dirt moved, 23,000 e Net cost per yard, ap ields. proximately ...-.........-...... *********gOOO OOO********g@@@Se* *00000O @SOOO OS@O@0 SO " nr rogress seemns to be the dominant idea of : ~+ the times; new discoveries, new triumphs: * *e*e o So:::d of science; new wonders all alo!.g th- lin- . - But when you come to CLOI'HtiS==-and \w al: : have to come to clothes every day, and probal)y o will for a good many years--when you come tol : CLOTHES you'd better come here and get into a0 0 * * * Fine Suit and Overcoat. : : No matter what discoveries may be made inm science, no matter how many men get to the * * North Pole or the South Pole, you'll never find: better clothes than these.
