Well Known Speakers Address an Ap preciative Audience, Many Jennings and Welsh Citizens Present. The first, and possibly the only anti division public speaking of the cam paigne was held at Roanoke, Tuesday evening. The school auditorium was camfortably filled. There being sev eral representatives from Jennings, a goodly delegation from Welsh, and a large percentage of the voting popula tlon of Roanoke present. The meet ing was opened by Mr. Booze. The first speaker of the evening was Dr. John H. Cooper, of Welsh, who in his usual pleasing manner answer ed a number of tihe allegations res pecting the merits of division, that are being made by the divisionists. Further the Doctor dwelt at length on the history of the division movement. and the part that Welsh has played in the same in the past, showing that I' the present attitude of Welshbis entire ly consistent with her past record. Mr. Chas. Carr was the next speak er. He produced a neatly colored map showing the several proposed parishes, and showed up the fallacy of the oft repeated assertion that the division is a "fair division, and a and square division'' Mr. Carr presented strong and telling argument against the proposed dismuemberment of tie parish. Mr. W. B. Gabbert, who, from his intimate knowledge of the working of schools in this section of the parish, is perhaps better informed on that line than ally other individual, de monstrated most clearly that a divis ion of the parish would work serious detriment to the etfficiency of the schools of the parish. Hon. L. E. Robinson, the last speak er of the evening, by his wit, wisdom and oratory won rounds of applause from all present, not excepting the division friends from Jennnings. Mr. Robinson made the statement that he came to this country a republican, and had never entered a democratic primary, hence could not be accused of seeking political prelerment or the emoluments of office in the preseut campaign. te showed up as au~o lutely false a number of asserltios made or reputed to have been made by the divisionists in their campaign ing. He further presented a convinc ing array of argument, facts and fig ures showing that division would be a most serious detriment to the tax pavers of the parish, as well as a ser ious inconvenieuce to a large part of the inhabitants of the parish, who would of, necessity oe serious5y in conveuienceL in having to go to a town on tle parisun ouundi' to attend court duties. In conclusion we believe that it is a safe bet that after hearing both sides of the question Itoanoke will give a big majority against divison. CONGREGATIONAL CHURC# SERVICES.

Central Selling Agency Highly In dorsed.-l)elegate Elected to Crowley Meeting. Pursuant to a call, issued by Pres. W. B. Gabbert, a meeting of the rice planters and others interested In the rice industry, was held in the Audi torium here Tuesday. About fifty planters were present, and the pro posed central selling agency was thoroughly discussed, and heartily endorsed by all present. The matter of electing a delegate to the Crowley meeting, to be held on the 5th inst., for the purpose of perfecting the pro posed association, was taken up. Mr. Gabbert was nominated, but after thanking those preeent for the court esy shown him, withdrew his name, saying that he believed a more capable man for the position could be found. Mr. L. E. Robinson was then nominated and unanimously elected. He is one of the thirty-three delegates provided for in the recent meeting held at Beaumont, of which Louisiana gets seventeen, Texas elev en, Arkansas three and Mississippi two. The rice interests of this section, feel sanguine of the success of the new movement, feeling assured that the rough rice market can quickly be put upon a firm basis, if the farmers will do their part toward the project. It was shown that practically the same movement had put the fruit growers of California, and the bean and pota to growers on an independent paying basis, and it is believed it will prove equally effective with the rice growers. Early Frost and Ice. This section of the state was visit ed by an unusually early frost and freeze this year. The weather turned cold the latter part of last week with the result that there was considerable frost and nearly a sixteenth of an inch of ice formed both Friday and Satur day nights. While this early frost has nipped vegetation to some extent it has done no narticular damage, either to fall gardens or pasture.
