Cotton is king, but there has been con siderable discussion as to how to keep the crown tied on. The hunting season is about to end, and between now and the 15th there will'be man a bird to drop into the sack. The Germans: "We win." The Allies: "We win." The People: "Who lied?" The roads of the parish are reported to be improving rapidly, and many of them are in good enough condition for an automobile to travel over. With the large number of horses and buggies in town Wednesday, one is reminded of the good old times when we didn't have the tightwads so scared. We havn't heard anything from the people concerning the fair which was pro osed some time ago. If you favor it, let us know about it. If you do not favor it, tellus w y. 'We might be able to make you S hange your mind. We heard some time ago the remark that our Levee Board had gotten loss of levee work done this year, but not enough money to pay off with. Anyway, we have the levees, so we should worry. When the editors falls short of copy, he Sm fall back on themes of concealed wea ne and reckless automobile driving, but when the editors falls short, the publisher as eu fall back on the theme of "scissors can cuet." The Shreveport Times remarks that, on t of the war women's clothes are ex to be scarce this seasons. Oh, noth ,we were just wondering if the word Lere was the one which was intended to be Ued. _ 'The armies of Europe eem to move :H a chessboard," says the Florida Times U:: a. Yep!

Asnxet the tal, aB ~beubm0~amo wEl THE NA The Inevitable Happened The publication of newspapers, to be 'successful, must be based upon sound busi ness principles, similar in all respects to the 'successful administration of any kind of a business enterprise. For a brief period it is possible to continue the publication of an S"organ" or a "sheet" for political or other ulterior object, but sooner or later-very Soften sooner-sech an enterprise goes to the "wall," and enlarges the Journalistic Grave yard, where so many bright dreams end. The latest daily newspaper in this sec tion to terminate a long and honorable career is the Natchez Democrat and Courier published as a morning newspaper in Nat chez, Miss., a thriving city much larger than Monroe. The afternoon newspaper, the Natchez News, has absorbed the Democrat and Courier, the transaction to become effec tive March 1st. It has not been announced which publication will cease to exist, but it is more than probable that the morning e paper will not be issued after March 1st, as e the afternoon newspapers throughout the the country are rapidly supplanting the morning newspapers as disseminators of real d news., d The Democrat and Courier has been e published in Natchez for over a half century, and it is with sincere regret that we note the passing of this splendid journal. The e News was started three years ago, and as ] has always followed when two newspapers t are published in a field only large enough for ~lone, the inevitable happened-either con a solidation was effected or one retired-after a desperate, pathetic struggle to avoid bank ruptcy. k Newspapers cannot exist on promises f and "hot air." It takes real money and lots h of it, to keep a newspaper going. Like any e other enterprise, there must be a legitimate patronage sufficient to make the venture profitable, or failure will result. Sometimes politicians who feel the need of an "organ," i finance a sheet for a few months, or during it a campaign, but such publications cease to r exist after an election. Business people are a beginning to realize the fact that a news paper must have a legitimate field from which to draw its patronage, else it cannot Sexist, and they are not encouraging the Slaunching of newspapers just to serve the d political fortunes of any set of men. Natchez, after a term of years during "'which two newspapers sought to exist, has at last joined Baton Rouge, Alexandria, e Lake Charles, Monroe, Port Arthur, Texas, and many other small cities, and will henc e fourth support one newspaper. The inevit e able happened at Natchez.-Monroe News Star. The United States has warned Great Il Britain that the general use of the American s flag, by Britishvesels, is viewed with grave is concern, and has notified Germany that the 0 destruection by her of any American ship in e the newly prescribed war zone would lead to in serious complications. It became known today that those two notes were dispatched to the two countries - last night. The news that the United r-I States had taken a pronounced stand caused it a profound impreseon among the diplomat. ' here (Washington). 'i The note to Great Britain was nol Sbased rn the Lusitania incident, but upon -O England's stand that neutral flags might be properly used under some circumstances- Monroe News-Star. Our friends down South, being sure that the negroes, are inforior, deny them & advantages and provide inferior schools for 2children in order that they will continue to be inferior and thus'prove the correctness of the contention of the scientists and senti - mentalists that the negro is inferior.
