Llano Co-operative Colony, L.ees^« e d a " e m S* think again 'NOTED OIL MAN" IS SECRET SERVICE MAN If you should see a simple-minded fellow who seems to be loaded up with more dollars than he knows how to take care of properly, and he should tell you a story of untold wealth that lies hidden under your very feet; who whispers of oil, oil, big gushers of it running wild along the road sides of the Parish, and wants inside informa tion as to where he can get leases of any kind—then intimates that he is thirsty and the amount of good money he would give for a drink ;\ tells of the good stuff he can get "at home," and what he would be willing to pay for something real good; a hail-fellow well-met; a mixer that gets under your hide until he thinks you can be squeez ed out of a $20 easily, or perhaps more —then, go away, friend, and sit down and^ think ; yes, think hard, and then Then go away off some where and sit in the shade until the dream of so many $20 blows away. 'Cause 'tain't goin' do you no good; and besides you have your little family)' that will need you for the next twelve months—yes, and that old bus'll miss you, too. Varied and strange are the methods employed by the Federal Secret Ser vice men; they come to-day, demon strate their merit, and depart like a ghost in the night. Leesville has had a visit from one of these gentry' recently. He came and captured the town; posed as an oil man looking for oil leases that could be bought cheap, stating that he held inside information in oil matters that must be told only in whispers, jfbout a big surprise in oil that is coming to the Parish of Vernon soon. And so he goes, working until the small hours of the morning, always with an insat iable thirst that must be appeased at any cost, until like a bolt from the sky comes the news that this friend who has been so generous, so liberal, so confidential, so kiind to you, was in reality a secret service man, having come here for the express purpose of a round-up for the fellows that were doling out the stuff that unmakes a man. He swore out warrants for 46 in Leesville whose stories will be told at the coming term of court, if you wish to hear it. Come up; it's free. This "friend" who was innocence personified, and who stated that he was from the RED River district, bears the Honored name of Moses. He comes to lead the children.of Israel—no, Ver into the Promised Land of Arid ity, even at the expense of one year in jail. COURT IN SESSION DISPOSES OF CASES The Twelfth Judicial Court is still in session at the Vernon Parish Court House, Leesville, the calendar of crim inal and civil cases being so extensive that Hon. Mr. Justice John H. Boone, who presides will not be able to fin ish the court's business until about April 10th or 12th. Among the cases disposed of so far were that of Harry Brogden, who was sent to the peniten tiary at Baton Rouge to serve at least five years for burglary and larceny, his entire sentence being nine years, subject to commutation for good be havior. The trial of Hamp Brown for mur der is still being continued before a jury composed of Messrs. Robert Mc Cullough, Emery Burns, S. A. Evans, Asa Dowden and Robert Burns. THE SUB-WAY (By Joshua Long) Yours truly" has been requested to keep an eye on our circulation ther mometer and report from time to time the rising temperature. This thermo meter is a peculiar "dingus,"—it has no zero and is not due to "pop off" until the mercury reaches the hundred thousand rtiark. In plain English, this mèans that we have set our goal for the circulation of the "Colonist" at 100,000. A big job, you say? Yes, but little jobs are not worth while in an undertaking of this kind. Just re member that there is no zero on the thermometer—no provision for the temperature to go down—it must go up. The sub hustlers are getting onto thé job in earnest—the mercury is ris ing. Send in your own sub and go af ter your friends who should be read ing the Colony publications—any old way to get the subs is the SUB-WAY. ¥ ¥ ¥ ¥ H. S. Richards, Oregon, sends sub. to Colonist and Co-operator, and says: "There is no literature that I have ever read that interests as the Colony publi cations do." Promises a visit to the Co ' on y soon - A \ t n Montana, sends sub 0 Colonist and says: "The Colon * st ' 8 a « information bureau," compli ments the "lady reporter" on her "preachetts" and threatens to join the 125-CLUB. Expects to visit the Colony shortly and giv« us the "once over." Alright, comrade, the latch string is out. ¥ ¥ ¥ ¥ Louis Jossi, California, has a griev ance. It seems that he has been as sociated with some one who, in turn, has been carelessly associated with Ernest Wooster and thus, indirectly, he has become inoculated with the germs of Colony co-operation. These germs are known to be deadly to one's cap italistic peace of mind. As proof that the inoculation "toolf," he sends for literature. These Colony germs are queer bugs—they never give up—their only terms are an "unconditional sur render." He has also read the "Diary" and says it draws like a porous plas ter. Vivu la "cimoj"! ¥ ¥ ¥ ¥ H. Clair, George, Pennsylvania, sub scribes for the Colonist and throws this bouquet: "I like the Colonist. Why? Not "just because" but because—yes —its style and "wotchacalit," it "jest sorta makes ya feel—0 darn it—its different from these hyer cut an' dried noospapers." That is just the point, Comrade George, we mean for the Col onist .to be "different"; the world needs something different and we are depending upon our "boosters" to help us put our message across by induc ing their comrades and friends to sub scribe. Do this and watch the mer cury go up. BERRIES AND SMALL FRUIT One of the greatest aids to good health in the summer season for the individual or a family is an abundance of berries and fruit for the daily diet. Because of this importance the dis cussion of this subject at the agricul tural meeting at Newllano on Friday night, March 3!, was listened to with intense interest. Everyone, having had some exper ience with berries either as a grower or consumer, felt free to take part in the discussion, and enjoyed the _ meeting immensely. It made one's mouth wat er to listen to the excellence of logan berries, black rasberries, strawberries, gooseberries, mulberries and many oth er kinds, as descanted upon by the re spective champions. The strawberry patches at the Col ony are slowly ripening their delicious berries and everyone expects to get a full share of the harvest. But the de sire is to grow the greatest possible variety to insure the largest gustatory delight to the colonists' palates com patible with good health. The woods and waysides are full of a world of wild blackberries and mulberries and there is no lack of provender in that di rection for the residents' tables. The agricultural meetings have be come a blessing to the Colony. Pre vious to them many of the colonists failed to take enough interest in the agricultural possibilities of our landed estate, but now everyone is alive to them, with great benefit to all our affairs. We now know that the Col ony lands, can supply all our food stuffs and clothing material with the exception perhaps of some tropical pro ductions that can easily be dispensed with, for the present. The improvements already secured from a limited amount of drains put in and the application of our home made fertilizer, are so visible that even the most confirmed sceptic has been converted into an enthusiastic optim ist. We are aflame with Ja spirit that spells success and victory. We are just full of pep to the bursting point, and are bound to work out all the colony plans to their utmost excellence. The Junior Colonist EDITOR, BENNETT BABB Reporters, Truman Benthall, Victor Gaddis, Margaret Seelye. ■V ¥ ¥ ¥ Mrs.j Blair has gone away, and every body is sorry, especially the "kids," and we are all looking forward to the time when we shall see her come back and be auntie to us again. * * ¥ ¥ Instead of having our regular Self Government League meeting last Sat urday, we all went out to the swimming pool and took our lunch. And just let me tell you right now that we sure häd a good time. We all hope we may go out there every Saturday after this. ¥ ¥ ¥ ¥ There are two more new beginners in our violin class now. Beulah Gad dis and Bill Beavers each have a violin and are getting along finely. Of course, they are rather young to take up the violin, one being fourteen and the other twenty-three. At least, their teacher says they act too young some times. ¥ ¥ ¥ ¥ The school 'kids" were very sorry to sete Mrs. West, "one of the girls," go away. At least, we all regard her as one of us, although she is about seventy years old. She is so lively and jolly that we could not possibly regard . „ her as a grown-up lady. You see, a grown-up lady to us means one who is very old-acting, and does ,not mingle with the "kids." We all hope to see Mrs. West come back some day soon. ¥ ¥ ¥ ¥ We have a very good way of keep ing our vocabulary sanitary now. When one of us says something he ought'not to say, we just go to the soap and wash out his or her mouth. It proves to be very effective, too. This is an incident that happened the other day. "Z" said to "X", "Say, what was that you said?" "X" looked rather sheep ish and did not answer. "Z" continu ed. "Now, you know, X, that sort of thing doesn't go around here, we are tired of it, so I guess you had better come along with us to the wash room." When they got there, this is what "Z." said to "X"; I'll give you three to chew that soap fifteen times. "X" said nothing, so "Z" went on: "1 2 but the 3 was never heard be 'X" chewed the soap and took his medicine. He knew if he did not, YOU d ea The American Co-operator MARCH NUMBER NOW IN MAIL This fine monthly magazine is becoming one of the best all-around co-operative monthlies in this country.

The vQcabular les are improving very much. ^ ^ ^ Last Saturday when Beulah Gaddis and Margaret Seeley worked in the candy kitchen, they happened to think that it was April Fool's Day. So they took about ten cents worth of candy and mixed some Cayanne pepper with it. They saved the candy and took it . to the dance to treat everybody in the evening. You ought to have seen the wry faces that were made over that candy. They fooled almost everyone in the house that they treated except Mr. Pickett. The reason he did not get caught was because he got a tip from one of the boys who was fooled before they got to him. I tell you it was lively around that dance hall for a while.—Margaret E. Seelye. ¥ ¥ ¥ « SCHOOL DIARY same routine of work this week. Clar ence Shutt, Victor and Maxine Gaddis, Arthur Montrose and Albert ' Kapotsy were working at the print shop all week.

FRANCE STILL PLOTTING AGAINST RUSSIAN PEOPLE (By The Federated Press) Vienna. — A new insurrection in South Russia has been planned for the moment when the Genoa conference is in session.
