The Romans, when conquoring the rest of Eu- asset t rope built roads wherever they went. Some of the Roman roads can an ºremain to this day, evidencing the broad and comprehensive views own d, that the Romans had as to how to build up a country. The Amer- to othi ican Indian, on the other hand, built no roads, but preferred the utilize 'buffalo trails all over the country, these animals having learned 'the best routes over the country just as have also the migratory birds. The There is no parish in Louisiana where good roads, or reasona- Plaque ably good roads can be had as cheaply as in Plaquemines parish, folowi and yet the complaint is now made that for miles and miles we tave n 'have practically no roads at all; that we are going backward per- Walt baps to the condition of the primitive indian who wanted no roads Martir if he had to build them. Good roads coat some money and the CPin ,trouble in our parish is that in its jutting out into the Gulf as it cien adoes, it forms a double peninsula and with our parish one hundred To the miles long we must have that much road on each side of the river, of t or two hundred miles of road in all, two hundred miles of public Des road for 12,000 people means a mile of road for ever sixty people. that ' Now in our level country where we have no expensive bridges find t t) build, road building can be reduced to simplest elements, We that may in time have graded or Macadamized roads, but just let us yeart; first just get some sort of roads and then improve them as we can. We It doesn't seem any great hardship to ask sixty people to maintain ters one mile of road. Sixty people would furnish 12 men ordinarily Distr and under existing law we collect from them or should collect $1 examh from each or $12 'e mile. This is not enough. Apart from this tax we should colliot ll the contributory taxes for road purposes, Th but outside the per capita tax such collections would not amount errn to much. In some of the parishes, St. Mary is one of them we believe, cand It has been found that when a road -is once plzced in the I good gQaer it can be kept in order for $25 per mile per year. The part toublde with us is to get oer roads in good order for the first time. In As we all know there should be a shallow ditch at the base of the inei lvee, a rounded up road bed of 20 to 25 feet next, and then a do :lransportgtion ditch some three feet with a proper and unobstructed men outlet. All low places will require boxes or trunks across of it. now AllU this could be done under $50 per mile and the 200 miles would ind requi $1o,000 to place them in order, some costing more and mes S ie rueember that much of this work is already done and et, the rqt r m la done gradually. We are endeavoring to sQow that mi we can egdiy have good dirt roads but that we are not tryig in .a' ernest to secure them. IJst year it was proposed at one time not ' evn to colleet the per capita tax which yielded a few hundred dol a:auls eguldbe made to yield $2,400 if every good citizen would do S'best to promote its collection, but we need taxation equal ,to n $ per mi e front ai~hually'for road purposes and special appro- sal pgtons toput good roads where there are none now or where r tea roads need practical reconstruction. on 'If a campaign of education be carried on, the friends of good o vaga - 4 would see to it that $2,000 should be rcalized. from the per :pi: tat x.

It is said that .the fig is the farmers savings bank. The pig can consume all the figs that the family can't eat or can, and the g, pigs will grow fat on them if they get enough of them. The fig da or rather the fig tree is practically a savings bank for whomever th has it. The same equivalent in good food can't be got as easily in any other way as by fig culture. Blackberries have now come in or Plaquemines parish and the bushes are laden with them and they are excellent while they last. They, however, are wild and uncontrolable. You may plant them just where you want them, and they will die out, but they grow almost anywhere of their own sweet will and seem to resent human intervention, at least here in Louisiana, while the fig welcomes it. Our domestic canneries in the country will now have hands full of blackberries for six or eight weeks, first of the purple stalk or dewberry 'variety and a later of the sweeter variety, the green stalked blackberry. The r dewberries are sometimes called low-bush blackberries because of ' the trailing growth, and the others high-bush, because they often grow higher than a man can reach. Blackberries are so very black that while they make fine jellies, preserves and jam, they are so dark in color as not to com e pare with strawberries in popularity. Yet they are a valuable "1 asset to us and if we develop the small cannery idea as we readily is can and certainly should, we can save thousands of dollars in our 's own domestic food stuffs and also sell thousands of dollars worth to others. Let us develop and utilize our fig crop and control and 1e utilize our blackberry. Court Proceedings. confider The Grand Jury of the Parish of l bim, Plaquemines was duly impanalled with The Robt. S.

He had gone f there for treatment and owing per- k W haps, to defective heart action, died * under the influence of anesthesia. Mr. I 4 ' Gleason was a man of about 54 years of age and was a resident of this parish for many years. He was reared in the Reparish of St. James and soon engaged in the sugar engineering work and was for years associated with one of the most prominent sugar engineers of St. 1 James parish. He came into Plaque any mines parish years ago to do engineer at ing work in the Promised Land sugar ant house and later was engaged at Sears the dale, at Braithwaite, at the paper mill lay. and lately for several years at Belair. the He leaves his wife and seven children er- six boys and one girl. A sister, Mrs. of Howe lived in Algiers, and a brother at St. James parish. His wife was Miss ih it Caro of the well-known Caro family of May the second ward. ster Mr. Gleason's death was entirely un expected and came as a thunderbolt so his family. He was a man that every 1, at one loved and respected. He was quiet, earnest, unassuming and always jeep; ready to do his best. His death is sin rt of cerely deplored by all who knew him and the, sympathies of hundreds of ated friends and relatives go out to the dis tear- tresped widow and children in their be- hours of sorrow. gets Mr. Gleasons remains were brought to Belair where the funeral services ular were conducted on Sunday by Father r.r.

Just as out last isaue was being made up we learned of tbhe death of Mr. The. - dore Bertrand at his bome on Woos. .wn plantation. The death of this y.sung gentleman desetycrs more than the short notice we were able to get in our last issue. We knew him from his childhood clear through to his manhood and on to the end of his young life when hI becama a victim of the great white plague. Mr. Bertrand was a member of one of the oldest, families in the paris and the present village of Bertrrand ville belonged to and was ftended by his grandfather.. In the old opei kttl sugar-making days the Bertrandis were famons sugar house bridl uass oI pd their handiwork was sought by every r one interested. Young Theodore be s came a plantation manager and was so n employed on Belair plantation for some years. He made an essay in loco1Mtil d engineering and it seems probable that* this he laid the foundations for his epAly is death. He contracted severe colds and finally abandoned that kind of work anad o returned to the cane fields where his managment was appreciated and ought. In time he abandoned this work again and sought the dry air of Western Texas hoping to recover from laringua tuberculosis which had fastened itself upon him.
