it can tell how a primary worked.

If Jastremski will turn loose
another volley of views maybe
another gubernatorial boom
would be pocketed.
The Sentinel did not try to
control the state cntral com
mittee, therefore it shouldn't be
chlarged up to us.
All the candidates are satisfied
with a primary now and, as the
Monroe Star remarks, "every
thing is just lovely."
Thly call it a Blanchard
yictory, but Gen. Jastremski was
the first candidate to turn loose a
charge of primary views.
The Sentinel's "tirst love"
having withdrawn, we are now in
the harness for Judge Blanchard.

Judge J. T. Watkins has with
drawn from the race for gover
norship, he having reached such
a conclusion Tuesday. His
statement appears in the news
columns of this paper.
There are many of the .1Judlge's
friends who are sorry to see himi
withdraw, but there are others
who realize that it is" the only
wise thing to do since some of hii
public utterances have been so
severely criticised and his plat
form. or a portion of it at le:ast,
Srefuse,! byv the leaders of tlhe
state. It was useless f',r the
1. Lldge to make the race with the
odd.s against him. He did the
wise act by withdrawing.
LoLui-iana is to have a primary
election for the nomination of a
I tate ticket. The Sentinel favor:
the convention method, but the
Democracy has decided for a
primary and we accept the de
ci-ion and will watch the experi
ment with interest. It is our
hope that the plan will be a suc
ceL.sý nd that it will result in
gd to the party.
The State Central Committee
decided for a primary for the
nomination of ieverythilng from
constable up to United States
SSenautr. A committee was ap
jpointed to formulate rules to
govern the primary, and to settle
on a date for holding it. This
committee will report on October
13 when the State Central Colm
mittee meets again.
A number of prominent Dem
ocrats did not favor the primary
method, but all have acquiesced
in the matter and everything now

corps of assistants.
The rolls, besides containing a
list of all taxable property in the

esting agricultural statistics.
These statistics have been hard
to collect and the assessor de
serves credit for- the manner in
which he has labored to make
neat rolls and make them a val
uable record of our parish. lie

neatest rolls the parish has had in
many years. The rolls show the

Having decide(d what she will

watch the advertising columns of

best bargains can be obtained.
But if she is a member of that
class who believe the home mer

goods for fear of missing the
train, and come home tired, dirty

bundles and a light pocketbook.
On examining her purchases,

OUR YOUNG MEN.
The persence of young men in
the councils of the nation has be
come so noticeable in the past de
cade that the veriest quid nunce
can not fail to observe it. At the
head of great corporations are
found men who are yet in their
twenties. Many of the brigthest
statesman are comparatively
young and every day witnesses
the rise of some. new man who
has not past the 30th mile post.
It is not that the young men
are being pushed forward wheth
er they desire it or not, that the
positions of financial and political
responsibility are given them, but
it is thro' the sheer force of their
worth that they have secured a
footing at the top, and it is on
account of their fitness that they
are keeping their places.
It is not every age that gives to
the young man an equal chance
with men of older years, nor does
every community extend, the
helpirTg and appreciative hand to
young men trying to make their
way in the world, but the centers
of progress and civilization have
in the last few years taken the
initiative in placing responsi
bilities on the shoulders of sturdy
youth and have found that they
have gained by it. The rural
districts are following and soon a
man will not have to show an age
certificate of forty years .before
the doors of opportunity will be
open unto him.
It is trite saying "that this is a
fast age." but nevertheless it is
none the less true because of its
triteness; and to move the vast
restless machinery of twentieth
century industry requires that
there must needs be strong young
hands and active brains.
It is not our intentipn to: argue
that men of mature years are
beingforced to the wll by their'
Wete ides , but olaa
the individual are considered, tie
battle is to the strong and the
race is to the swift.
The young maun therefore, may
rejoice in the strength and activity
of youth and may work with the
conscientiousness that he is need
ed in the world in the measure of

Make It Blanchard.
Jastremuski's supporters can't
holler hurrah for him. Hardly
one man in a hundred can pro
nounce his name. In politics
there seems to be something in a
name after all.
An exchange, noting the fact
that almost every evil has some
redeeming feature, says:
The devil sends the wicked wind
That blows our skirts knee high;
But God is just
An. sends the dust
That blows in the bad man's eye.
