At its last meeting the Police Jury
appropriated $15 t"iw.-r.ls defraying
the exp1nses of the district delegate,
L. H. Lancaster. to thi, Good Roads
Convection which will he held in St.
Louis on April 270h.. 1903. This is
a praiseworthy action on the part of
that body, it is not only a substantial
help but naso a stimulus to thecitizens
to contribute their mite.
Good roads are essential to the
welfare of the parish; of this all the
citizens of Lafourche are aware, for
the condition of our highways during
the past two months his caused tisen
to realize more than ever that unless
greater attention i+ given the roads
they will return to the same condition
that they have b en in th.e past two
months whenever there is it long rainy
spell. The railroad has tixed the
round trip at $18 and a number of
our puilic spirited citizens have
already contributed their share to the
fund, still that is not enough as about
$50 are required for exp-ases, the
testiael hopes that other names wilt
be added to the following list:
J. T. Moore, Planting Co.... 5.0th
Police Jury............... 15.00
Progressive Union ......... 10.00
Cash............... ...... 5.04b
Theo Torres............... 1.00
Next to a man's family and busi.
ness nothing should stand dearer to
r man's heatt than the communtty in
which he lives. It is his home. It
is the place in which he earns his
competence and educates his children.
If he wants to make it as popular, as
thrifty and widely known as possible,
he can not afford to he indiff ,rent to
anything that will further these ends.
It can be said that a town that is not
worthy of the devotion of its citizena
in making it widely and generally
prosperous is a town in which it is
not worth while to live at All. If a
town is worth anything it is worthy
of our greatest energy, whe ther we
receive an immediate dividend in
dollars and cents or wh.!ther wn
