TOWN OF DIXIE; ITS RAPID GROW'TII AND FUTURE POSSIBILITIES (Continued from Page Four) ment of a most flattering patronage. Polite attention to custom ers is its watchword. While there has been more or less undeserved criticism of prices charged by cafes and restaurants in this city, the patrons of Mr. D. C. Kinchen's Cafe of Dixie speak in terms of warm praise of both prices and service. Patrons are satisfactorily serv ed with the best the market affords and at fair and reasonable prices and it is well patronized by both residents and visitors. Our reporter was greatly surprised by the stock of goods, eager purchasers and the general activity displayed in every de partment at Roy Mercantile Company. The trade of this estab lishment is based upon well satisfied patrons and these are legion. In addition to the establishments mentioned Dixie has many others, including auto repair, blacksmith, barbers and all that goes to make a thrifty and self-sustaining town but which for lack of spa...

HOW SUGAR CANE CULTURE WAS STARTED (Continued from Page 1) danced stately minuets and quadrilles on the sugar house floor, to the tune of "Old horse came racking out de wilderners," "Old Suckey Blue Skin," "She's in love with me," "Uncle Ned." The girls danced in their Paris sprig ged muslin and soft dutch velvet, sip ping vancan, wine and fruit cake. (The "Baby" put in and said, "Fruit cake is made of sugar and spice and everything nice." So everything of the past is, through the golden haze of memory.) Our young times were pretty good, even if we did walk over to the sugar house in the day time, and ride in the big blue sugar wagons at night. So we all hurried down after breakfast and begun at the beginning, watching the long purple laden "carriers" lift its royal burden to the shining "roll ers", from the dark pool of newsjuice fresh from the rollers, turn muddy, boil and boil from one kettle to the other until it foamed into amber syr up. We never tired watching the men with the...

During British dominition the land grants were made to English, Scotch and Irish imigrants who were located in the upper portion of the parish. In 1717 a brutal and indiscriminate massacre of the inhabitants settled about the Plains, now embraced with in the bounds of the Fourth Ward, i by a band of Choctaws was success fully accomplished by the savages I who escaped before troops reached the neighborhood. The slaughter must have been of many inhabitants as 1 there are not at present a single name of the early English settlers i among our people, while the descend ants of Spanish inhabitants of a later t date are quite numerous.

NEWS OF LOUISIANA DIVISION, U. D. '1lAPm lT A Ita qa~~ w --... EDUCATIONAL WORK IS URGED TO CHERISH VETERANS MEMORY The United Daughters of the Con federacy feel, that in their educational work on behalf of the descendants of Confederate Veterans, they are best cherishing the sacred memory and no ble example of these truly great men of our country. With Henry Grady (of Georgia) they feel that the South has nothing for which to apologize. She believes that the late struggle be tween the States was war and not re bellion, resolution and not conspiracy and that her convictions were honest, and that as a consequence they who died in the defence of such convic tions were heroes of the highest and noblest type and their memories should be perpetuated from generation unto generation. The Confederate Veterans won for themselves deathless glory and undy ing fame by the sufferings they man fully and courageously endured for the cause they espoused and for the principle that was their inspirat...

BATON ROUGE BECOP. ING A USICA, CITY It has not been many years since the musical activities of the city of Baton Rouge were few and of com paratively little importance. Growth in the appreciation of better music is pretty sure to be slow. This slowness of growth is a real compliment to the value of such an appreciation. A mushroom springs up in a night, but an oak is a century coming to ma turity. Many people and many causes are constantly contributing to make Bat on Rouge more musical. First in or der of importance of contribution must come the teachers of music. Bat on Rouge is unusually fortunate in having a large number of them, and they are well equipped as to musical preparation and (as a rule) earnest in their desire to give value received for the rather too small fee usually asked. Good teachers of piano, voice, violin, and other string instruments, pipe or gan, and all the various reed and brass instruments usually found in band and orchestra as well as some of those not s...

LOUISIANA CLUBS S,. [OE.ucuOO -0 e ,O ALEXANDRIA, LA. Ladies and Sister Members of the Eighth District of Federated Clubs: I consider the greatest issue of the Women's Department of Forestry in the whole State, the Conservation and Park Plan conceived by our chairman, Miss Caroline Dorman, and as I was one of the happy party who made the trip with Mrs Thom just a few days after our Eighth District Convention here in March, it is a great privilege to be able to tell you of our hopes and plans. Realizing that our wonderful long leaf pine trees are falling daily by the thousands under the axe and the saw of the lumberman, with almost no thought of reseeding or protection for the small trees, and that great areas of blackened and denuded land attest the fast disappearance of the entire forests of Louisiana, the Federated Club Women have been pledged to sponsor the project of preserving a few hundred acres of virgin long leaf pine, that this great heritage may not be entirely lost to ou...

HISTORICAL SOCIETY OF PARISHES OF EAST AND WEST BATON ROUGE The Historical Society of East and West Baton Rouge was organized in 1916 through the efforts of Dr. M. L. Bonham during his incumbency, on the faculty of the Louisiana State University. During Dr. Bonham's presidency the work of the socie ty was marked and efficaci ous and much historical data was com piled and many objects of historical interest were collected and added to the museum of the society. Upon the removal from this city of Dr. Bonham for occupation in other parts of the country, the society chose for its president and secretary Mr. J. St. Clair Favrot and Miss Mattie B. Mc Grath. After the lapse of some time and principally through the. effects of the after-the-war period, the society grad ually relapsed into a state of inoccu ous desuetude and this was principally caused by the absence of any suitable quarters in which the society might lodge itself and carry out the purposes for which it was organized.
