Judging from the fridged reception being given to Commander Peary, in Georgia, where Gov. Brown and At lanta's mayor each refuse to intro duce him on the night of his lecture, we may soon expect a wireless to the effect that he has discovered the south pole. When Rockefellow desired to ac cumulate a few extra millions it was done by raising the prices on the necessities of life that the masses of the people were compelled to buy from the trust, now that he wants to dispose of a few millions why not re verse the rule and lower the price of oil. for instance. It is said to be a poor rule that wont work both ways. The near-conflagration of last Tuesday should be a warning to every citizen of Welsh to have a care of their fires, stovespipes and flues. With the limited means at hand for fighting fire it would be next to impos sible to even stay the sweep of a fire if it once got a good start in the business section of the town. It would seem that this fire was due not only to ,ctual criminal negligence but to a direct disobedience of the city ordinances, relative to providing proper flues in certain sections of the city. If there is an ordinance that bears directly upon this subject, as we are informed there is, it would seem to us that it is the duty of our city authorities to see that the same is inforced. Such negligence greatly endangers the interests of every property owner in Welsh, and should not be counteuenced. As the seeding time draws near and the price of rice does not advance the subject of truck farming is attracting more and more attenti6n in Calcasteu Parish. In another column of this issue we give account of the work being done in this line by a Jennings farmer. From this account it will be seen that by proper handling ground can be made to yield from $200.00 to $300.00 per acre, which is far in excess of what it can be made to yield when planted in rice. If it is the net re sults that are sought is it not better to farm ten to twenty acres to crops that have an unlimited market at a price that will enable the planter to net from to$50.00 to$100.00or better per acre, than to farm all out doors to rice and come out broke at the end of the season? We would suggest that every farmer try enough truck farm ing to at least supply his own table with the various vegatables of the season. Accordin to the Lake Charles Am-Press, the Caddo school board has established a precident, by of ficially announcing that the schools of that parish will not be closed during the meeting of the st:te teach ers association. In time .,st the schools of the entire state :l~ ,i been closed and as a rule tl:m teachers coerced into attending the associa tion. This works a hardship on practically all parties concerned. In the first place it is an expense that many of t.e teachers can ill afford, often requiring an expenditure of as much as a teacher can save in one or even two months work Again it 1 makes a disastrous break in the work of the schools at a time when it is most dilficult to get pupils down to hard work again. Further more as teachers draw their regular salary for attending these meetigs it makes I an expense of several thousand dol lars on the patrons of the schools" of the state, for which it is very doubtful if they receive r. equivolent -- --· -· The best is the cheapest when it comes to papering and painting. I guarantee both work and material to be the best. A. B H!!ll. TO RENT: The Singleton Residence. APPLY TO Wm. P. Russell, Jr., Welsh, : : : : : : Louisiana. E. F.

Bourgeois property located just north of the business section of Welsh caught fire from a defective flue, and, with out the heroic efforts of an improvis ed fire department, would have burned to the ground. As it was the damage was confined to burning a hole some ten or twelve feet square out of the roof on the building. This house is one of the largest in town and is so situated that if it ever burns, it will under any but the most favorable circumstances cause a ccnflagration that will sweep everything off the block upon which it is situated. We understand that the fire was caused by a defective flue, that had not been prop'rly attended to sinceit was the cause of a similiar fire in the fall. Jail Breaker Recaptured. Rodger Darby, the young negro who broke out of jail here a few days ago, was captured at Grand Cateau and brought back to Welsh Sunday morning. Darhy was placed in jail on Saturday night, and before his trial the following Monday, he es caped by prying the steel slats of the cage loose. A reward of $25 was of fered for his recapture. Saturday evening Marshal, Andrew Louviere got a tip that Darby was at Grand Cateau. He left on No. 8 Sunday morning, captured his man and re turned on No. 3, having made the en tire trip, including a twenty-two mile drive, in exactly nine hours. Darby was taken to Lake Charles, where charres of assault and of breaking jail wort' ptoe'rred against him. Spring-tite Again. Unless all signs fail, winter has bade us adieu, and resigned his sway in favor of vernal spring. While the weather has been delightful most of the time, for several weeks past, and numerous signs proclaimed the arriv al of spring, yet the old timers shook their heads in doubt, so long as the China ball tree had not proclaimed the fact. But now, even that wary prophet has sent forth his green shoots and leaves, whici evidence, together with the rumors of Sunday school picnics and fishing parties, combined with green grass, blooming flowers and singing birds, all seem to pro claim the fact that winter is past. ------ -P-D ,4, c- Oliver Typewriter Ribbons at the Journal Book store, 75e each. 8 Just Unloaded a car of 8Golden Sheaf and Gran Dee Flout CORN AIEAL, AUNT JEMIMiA'S SpECIAL CAKE AND PASTRY FLOUR, AUNT JEMIP1A'S PANCAKE F L 0 U R, BUCKWHEAT, GRAHAM RICE, CRACKED HOMINY, POP CORN AND NO. 1 CORN CHOpS All these goods are highly recommen and we guarantee them to give satisfaction.
