(Copyrighted 1913 by W. T. Foster.) r Washington, D. C., Aug. 30.-Last bulletin gave forecasts of disturb ance to cross the continent Aug. 29 to Sept. 2, warm wave Aug. 28 to Sept. 1, cool wave Aug. 31 to Sept. 4. e This disturbance will average t warmer t:han usual and rainfall will be less than usual, but a few show ers with heavy rains in a few places. e The most important weather fea- F ture of September will be its rain falJ, which is expected to be less than usual. The September rains are important on account of sowing a winter grains, and as better rains r are expected in October it would be E advisable to sow late where it is too I dry for sprouting the grain. But t where the soil is sufficiently moist t it will be best to sow early, particu- t larly in northern states, in order c that a good growth may give pro- e tection to the roots of the grain IJ during November, which is expect- r' ed to be colder and more stormy l' than usual. b Of the three principal storm waxes of September we give par ticular warning for Sept. 12 to 18. That will be the most dangerous part, of the rmonth and no risk should be talon. The eqguinc.tital storms this yeanr will occur not far from Sept. 15 and 28. but the first period will be unusually severe. The dry weather of Seplember' will extend into the cotton states and cause considerable loss to the! top growths of cotton. As to the 1914 winter grain crops we canit make no estimate before the first of n November 1913, but we will be able 7 to make a valuable estimate of 'the 1915 wheat crop early in 1914. Next disturbance will reach Pa cific coast about Sept. 3, cross Pa cific slope by close of 4, great cen tral valleys 5 to 7, eastern sections 1 8. Warm wave will cross Pacific slope about Sept. 3, great central a valleys 5, eastern sections 7. Cool o wave will cross Pacific slope about Sept. 6, great central valleys 8, east ern sections 10. Very warm during this period and s the storm forces, though not great, f will have greater. than usual inten- p sity. Not much rain generally but a t few local thunder showers and a a probability of a few hail storms. r Third storm wave of September t will reach Pacific coast about 9, t cross Pacific slope by close of 10, s great central valleys 11 to 13, east- t ern sections 14. Warm wave will f cross Pacific slope about Sept. 9,; ti great central valleys t1, eastern u sections 13. Cool wave will cross the 8 Pacific slope about Sept. 12, great central valleys 14, eastei sectionsc 16. While this disturbance will av erage warmer than usual it will not he as warm as the preceding stornm wave. Showers will increase. Force S 3f the storms will be less till Sept. 13, when they will begin to increase prepa'atory for the great storm pe iod of Sept. 1 to 18. On Sept. 12 o you should begin to think aboutt bunting places of safety. Orthodox scientists who are per sistent critics of planetary meteor ology should go back in weather p history and investigate conditions during the years when Jupiter oe cupied positions similar .to this year a and they will surely find great a weather events.. JuDiter's cycle is 11.84 years, and in its first cycle you w-ill find the great drouth and de struction in the corn crop of the year 1901. Hunt up other wlather events inear those 12-year cycles of the great planet Jupiter and you w-ill learn something of value. A Flue Ordinance. An ordinance for the regulation of flues is being considered by Strube McConnell. city firs marshal, and Commissioner Fullilove. It is intended to restrict flues and where defective must be removed. It is held that the majority of fires occur from defective flues. It is claimed that the fire hazard will be consid erably reduced and it is also stated that the fire insurance rating will be decreased. This would seem as ithe refrain of an old song. FIRE PROOF ROOFS. Ordinance Suggested for Approval Under Consideration. There is pending for consideration an ordinance by Commissioner Ful lilove which has for its purpose the substitution for shingle and other combustible roofs of metal, slate, tile, composition or other material which is fire proof. If this reselu tion should prevail all dwellings and houses within the limits of the city will have to be of some material which is fire proof. Should a roof of shingle or other material not fire proof have to be repaired the roof will have to be of fire proof material. It is intended that where a roof of shingle or of other material not fire proof, sub ject to leaks or in need of slight repairs, that ithall be required an entire new roof of any of the ma terial denoted as fire proof? The Caucasian would request for publicity the views of Commission er Fullilove on this proposed fire proof roof proposition. State Debt Pamphlet. The Caucasian has been compli mented with a copy of a pamphlet, prepared by State Treasurer 1. E. Smith, in which is explained the proposed issue of the 40-year serial bonds which is intended! to retire the State debt. The plan is prac ticable, but will it receive favorable consideration? There is an influ ence in the State that can not be pacified unless the fraudulent claims they have or hold shall be legitimatized. This influence has been reckoned with already. It should be squelched emphaticallyl Sewer Eextension. The Caucasian has been queried as to the city's right to order the Waterworks Comipany to extend sowere connet ionis weli.e needed. In last Sunday's issie of the Cau casian the aulhority of the cily was name iplain. As irovided in the cou tract between tlhe :lit and the Wa lerworks Company, the city can re qluire from the Waterworks and Sewerage Company the extension of. the sewer service wherever it is needed. The city is required to pay 7 per cent o nth investment. A Waiting Policy. As reported from Washington the Mexican situation is unchanged. Governor Lind is at Vera Cruz. President Wilson is recreatiri' in New Hampshire and Secretary Bry an is "taking it easy" at the capital of the Nation. Assistance Needed. The fire Friday morning that de stroyed the home of John Levy and family also swept away their entire possessions of clothing and furni ture. They will be thankful for any assistance until their destitution is relieved. Neighbors of the unfor tunate family have been interesting themselves in their behalf, and some relief has been given. Dona tions will be conveyed direct to the family of J. B. Herring, the obliging transfer man, free of charge. Those who wish to give can ring old phone 887 or new phone 815. Shreveport's Water Supply is Ex cellent. The Shreveport Journal Aug. 29: "From a sanitary standpoint Shreveport. water is pure. This is the excellent boost in a report by the State analyst to Dr. Oscar Dowl ing, who in turn-, submitted a copy of the Greport to Mayor John H. Eastham. "Data for the analyst was se cured about July 26 by State Sani tary Engineer J. H. O'Neill, .who spent several days in Shreveport. He reports that. the water supply comes from Red River. It is puri fied by treatment consisting of aeration, sedimentation with alum and, mechanical filtration. "Though pure from a sanitary point of view. the water, from the rport. is heavy in minerals from a mnineral standpoint, and is hard, bit as the sanitary fat:ure is the prin cipal thing. the report is pleasing." It is excelleant, 1l t lh, g'reat ma jrilty of the residents of Shreve port rely on rain water. or "pure rock" or on Olympia or on Epptos' Swatlir for drinking purposes, all of which is costly. In Ield, the Shreveport water is excellent, but would Dr. Dowling drink it. with unfailing regularity? No reflection or discredit intended. River Stage.

Louisiana Democrat: The deadli e est error that can lead a young man ig is that in order to know the world he must disregard home restriction and sow wild oats. The son who sows wild oats will reap a harvest d of shame. Nay, more, he will com it pel his father and mother to reap d with him and be sharers of hfs n shame. Every son needs to be care t' ful of his character. It is the capi tal with which he enters business oe or begins a professional career. If re it is shoddy or spotted the best men will shun him as deadly poison. it Shreveport Assessment. Through the equalization of as sessment greater revenues will be obtained which should suggest a de crease in the rate of taxation. The parish assessment will show an in crease in the valuation and so will , there be an enhancement for the city. The increase will soon be ob e tainable, at least when the rolls are S comploted. n Good stationery is essential to the up-to-date merchant. Phone 1000. A House Entirely in a Class i by Itself.
