S. ). TENNEY, Arent.
Teddy spent a year in the jungles ol
Africa, hunting a white elephant,
while Uncle Joe Cannon has discov
ered one in the heart of Washington.
Since the democrats and insurgents
in the house of representatives, have
spiked the enemies' hig gun, it is to
be hoped there will be less of the
Cannon's roar and more rerl business
heard in that august hody in the fu
All is not cold that glitters, so
seemus to think a good many members
of congress who are investigating the
Rockefellow foundation bill. Many
senators have made up their mind
that the proposition is but a scheme
or a cloak to shield and protect the
trusts, while others fear that it is a
scheme to gain control of the educa
tional and charitable institutions of
the land. It is argued, and with good
cause, that the teachings of a great
institution, will of necessity be tinged
If it is irder great obligations to one
man or to the great trust king for a
large part of their endowment. As
an example is cited the case of Prof.
James R. Day, of Syracuse Universi
ty, which is under obligations to JQhn
D. Arci uihld for large donations,
who not only strongly defended the
Standard Oil Co., but most vigorously
assailed President Rooseveldt on ac
count of his opposition to the trusts.
It is just possible that John D. wil
have as hard work to dispose of his
money to his entire? satisfaction as he
h.d in accumulating it.
In the columus of the Jennings
Times-Record, the daily journal of
the would-be parish seat of Foster
Snyder-Davis parish, it is rather sur
pri3ing to find the following: "To
the citizens of Jennings: Any one
wanting to resist the payment for
sidevwalks and curbing put in for them
by the city, can get into the fighting
pool by putting up $10 with J. P.
Black or L. W. Dalby, for attornevs'
fees. Now is the time to get in the
ring and knock out the curb propo
altion. Yours truly, LAW SUIT
COMMITTEE." It must be very em
barrassing for Jennings people to
have such a fight made on public Im
provement, when the neigi boring
town of Welsh is not only putting in
all the sidewalks ordered, but is clam
oring for more.-Lake Charles Ameri
can-Press. Rigat you are, B:ro.
Krebs! Welsh not only has miles of
the linest cement walks that can be
made, but she has them paid for. No
bonded indebtedness, tax or other evi
dence of indebtedness is outstanding
against the town for our walks. The
property owners just went down in
their pockets and paid for their, walks
within ten days from the time of com
pletion, and are, as you say, clamor
iog for more. But then, it is hardly
fair, you know, to compare the dead
with tbe living.
The Signs of the Times Pm'nt to DI
rersifeateon of Crops this Year.
As straws tell which way the wind
blows, so also does the machinery
that is being bought tell pretty accur
ately what the farmers are going to
plant. And according to observation
and the reports of' some of our im
plement dealers, there has never been
such a run on implements for planting
and caring for high land crops in
this section, as there is this season.
Hardly a day passes that farmers
cannot he seen taking home corn
planters, corn drills, cultivators and
other machinery for planting and car
ing for dry land crops. One of (our
implement dealera says helis far be
hind in his orders for corn drills, anc
that it is impossible at present, to
supply the demand in thi. direction.

Welsh Boys Put up (Good Game at Lake
Between' twenty.live and thirty of
the basket ball boys and their friends,
went to Lake Charles Saturday tc
measure strength and training with
the Lake Charles boys. Two games
were played, one between the Welsh
first team and the Lake Charles high
school team, and the other between
the Welsh second team and the Cent
ral ward team of Lake Charles.
Both games were snappy from start
to finish, the boys of each school do
lug some fine playing.
While the games were hotly contest
ed, the utmost fairness and gentle
manly conduct prevailed throughout.
The results were as near even as re
sults could well be in such a contest.
The Lake Charles first team won by
one point over the Welsh first team,
but the Welsh second team turned the
tables on their opponents and defeat
ed them by one score.
The game was thoroughly enjoyed
by the spectators, and, so far as we
have been able to learn, the utmost
good will and harmony prevailed be
tween the contending teams.
This will likely close the work of
the Welsh team for this year, and
while they have not had the satisfac
tion of winning any game this season,
they have every reason to be proud of
the progress they have made. The
game was new to all the boys when
they began practicing this season,
and they have made steady progress
until they closed the season by being
defeated by but one point, by what is
conceded to be the strongest team in
We believe, from the progress that
our boys have made this year, that
with proper training and practice,
next year they will be able to contend
successfully with any high school
team in the state.
Donm' Break Down.
Severe strains on the vital organs,
like strains on machinery, cause
break-downs. You can't over-tax
stomach, liver, kidneys, bowels,
or nerves, without serious danger to
yourself. If you are weak or run
gown. or under strain of any kind,
take Electric Bitters, the matchless
t"nic medicine. M. Mrs. J. E. Van de
Sande, of Kirkland, Ill., writes:
"That I did not break down, while
enduring a most severe strain, for
three months, is due wholly to Elect
ric Bitters." Use them and enjoy
health and strength. Satisfaction

Jerniings Attorney Discuises American
Woman's League at BaptistC('hurch
At the request of a number of the
ladies of Welsh, who are interested in
the American Woman's League, and
the building of a league chapter house
in this city, Mr. J. O. Modesette of
Jennings, came over Tuesday evening
and spent a couple of hours explain
ing the plans and workings of the
league, and the purposes of its found
er, Mr. E. G. Lewis, of the Lewis
Publishing Co. of St. Louis, as seen
from a business man's point of view,
Mr. Modesette is an enthusiastic ad
mirer of the purposes and work of the
league, although in his discussion of
the subject Tuesday evening, he
handled both sides of the question
with the utmost fairness. He stated
in the beginning that he was not in
the employ of any party or individual
in any wise connected with the league
or any of its prom, ters; that his pur
pose should be, in so far as possible,
a simple :statement ot the facts and
conditions in connection with the sub
ject, so far as he had been able to
discover them, from a careful study
of their literature,
The proposition, in brief, was that
upon fifteen women securing life mem
berships in the league, at a fee of $52
each, plans would be made for the
erection of a $1,250 chapter house,
for the use of the league and their
friends. This chapter house would
contain reading rooms, kitchen and
assembly rooms, and furnish a place
of meeting for the ladies, whether
members of the league or not.
At the close of the discussion, Mr.
Modeseretr and his wife, who accom
panied him, together with a number of
friends, werte entertained for a icouple
of hours at the home of Mr. and Mrs
J. W. Tanner.

me completely. I never cough at
