FIRST N. E. CIURCI,SOUTI The pastor of the First Methodist Church has in his possession a book of great interest, upon the fly-leaf of which is written: "Register of the Baton Rouge Methodist Episcopal Church, South, with the General Rec ords, and a Synoptical History of the Statistics, Aevised, etc., Robert J. Hardp, 1851." It is bound in sheep skin, its pages number to 470, some of which are written upon and some of which are blank, while still others, un fortunately, are missing; and has printed upon the back edge, "M. E. Church Register." The book is now about 67 years of age. It contains many revisions of the church roll, registers, baptisms, marriages, deaths, records of quarterly conferences, notes by various pastors, and other matters .of interest. The history of the church begins with the year 1834; the first revision of the roll contains the names of those who, in 1851, had been mem bers since 1834. One of the last items recorded before the incumbency of the present pastor...

BE AN OPTIMIST ('By Valit M. Seitz). Not so long ago I was riding in a West end car on my way out to Lake view, and I had the pleasure-for it wad a pleasure-of sitting behind two men and over-hearing their conversa tion on business conditions. One was an Optimist and the other a Pessi. mist; one saw the doughnut and the other only saw the hole. The conversation was in this strain: "What's the matter with business?" asked the pessimist with a long drawn fade. "Nothing, my dear Jim, absolutely nothing," replied the optimist, "busi ness is alright-it is you." "Oh yes it is alright," he continued as the pessimist started to remon strate. "Of course it is not altogether you-we are all more or less to blame, but you helped to 'knock' business when you should have been boosting. Yes you have-we all have-pnd we know it." "Just how?" asked the pessimist. "Well, answered the optimist af ter some thought, "we listened to a lot of insidious propaganda about profiteers. Some of it was true-but m...

ST. JAMES CRlC A church with a history dating back over one hundred years and with over 1200 membership and rap idly increasing in membership is St. James Episcopal Church, over which Rev. Royal K. Tucker at present pre sides as priest and rector. Like all churches of Baton Rouge during the early days of American occupancy St. James Church had a rdther precari ous existence. In the year 1819 several citizens of Baton Rouge banded together to se cure for themselves and families the services of the Episcopal Church but as an ordained priest could not be had a lay leader, a Mr. Jamison, was en listed in the cause and officiated dur ing some two or three years. In the year 1820 an act of incor poration was granted by the State legislature under the title of "The Episcopal Congregation of Baton Rouge," but as services were very ir regular the small congregation be came discouraged and the charter ex pired by limitation and the church as such ceased for a time. From 1823 to 1840 there wer...

P Clain The only public library in Baton Hov Rouge is the one located on the cor- Fi ner of Church and Florida streets, Clai owned and managed by Joanna Wad- Whi dill Chapter U. D. C. For many A years this library was paitly main- Otte tained by a liberal monthly gift from Mis Dr. D. M. Hailey of Oklahoma, who N was formerly a Baton Rouge boy. fici4 When he could no longer give this amount the ladies went before the city commissioners with a report showing what they were doing for the city, and making known the dis continuance of Dr. Hailey's gift. The pR commissioners readily agreed to give this amount for the first year, and have since raised it to $500.00, the wli amount they now give. vil Last year the police jury gave $100 cai to the library fund.

BOYS DURING CIVIL WAR. How They Escaped the Federals to Join Confederate Army. (By a Confederate Veteran). This is written for the best and most useful body of boys of Baton Rouge, boys for whom I entertain the very highest re gard, with a sincere appreciation of their manliness, good conduct and usefulness on all occasions of public interest-the Boy Scouts. It is to convey to these fine lads a knowledge of the deeds of boys during the Civil War. Of course, I can write on ly of boys of the South, particu larly of those of Baton Rouge whose names remain among us. Presumably, northern boys per formed the same deeds as gal lantly and heroically as ours but I am not familiar with deeds of Federals. Parents of boys of fourteen or fifteen years of age left at home when local companies were or dered elsewhere had at severe time in restraining the ardor of the youngsters and in keeping them at home until old enough to endure the hardships of ,a soldier's life. Even, then, not-1 withstanding...

CHECKERS OF FATE (By Virginia Bransford.) CHAPTBR 1. It was a golden October evening. though late in the year it was still warm; the woods were alive with feathered songsters who had sought refuge in this more southern clime. Cape jessamines, and stately magnol las lent to the air a perfume that was delightful. Here in this fair spot lived wealthy planters with their queenly wives, daughters and worthy sons. Fore most among them being Captain Ed ward Grey; here in his handsome home he lived with his cultured wife, and only child, Irma. Like an old Feudal Barron he lived, and his humble re tainers looked upon him more with love than fear. Here the family lived in comfort and ease till yellow fever, the dread ene my of our fair southland, took from the home the fond father and hus band. Retaining the services of her trusted overseed, and Irma's governess, Mrs. Grey managed to live, hiding in her heart the grief that time alone could *assuage; and Irma, how shall I best describe her?

At the risk of being considered tiresome Woman's Enterprise will con tinue to urge the ladies of East Baton Rouge to register at the very first op portunity and to vote at every election, municipal, parish and state. It is learned from sections where women have exercised the right of suf frage freely that their votes had a wonderful influence in the moral uplift of their communities; that every municipal department had become efficient, that the political atmosphere had been purified and crime and misdemeanors considerably reduced. For more than a half century progressive women have been demanding a voice in public affairs and now that they enjoy that privilege they should not be lukewarm or careless in the discharge of that imp...

"VARSITY MANOR" NEW DOR. fo MITORY FOR L. S. U. COEDS on pr Catholic Forces Are Responsible For in Its Establishment. - t tel By Marjoria B. Arbour. ha The birth of "Varsity Manor," the fo Louisiana State University's first ye dormitory for young women, is due Ui primarily to the efforts and inspira- Hi tion of Father T. Colbert, assistant wl priest in St. Joseph's Catholic Church, ye who conceived of the idea and who wi subsequently placed the practical plan before the St. Margaret's Daugh- wi ters, an association of Catholic wom lir en whose chief activities are concerned ni with social welfare work, for their pe approval and for their cooperation in gt launching the project. The establish w ment of such a house meant a largen m expenditure of money, as rental was high and furniture prices were well re inflated. Skeptics said it couldn't be su done, and even the most optimistic er knew that it would be a colossal un- ce dertaking, but realizing that all big te things are accomplis...

COSIMETIQUE THERAPY. I Article 2. An individual must, of necessity, have some knowledge of the skin, in order to discuss it with any degree of intelligence. What is the skin? It is an Organ which envelopes the entire body and lining the oral cavities which open outward, as well. What is an Organ? It is an instru ment by means of which any thing is done. Anatomically the skin is made up of i two distinct layers which in turn are subdivided into divisions somewhat different in character. For the purpose of intelligent un derstanding of locations under dis cussion the two sections will answer. These are the outer layer: epidermis, and the inner layer, or true skin: the derma. In this second layer are located the appendages of the skin, i.e.: Hair, sebacious (oil) and sudiferous (sweat) glands, also the nerves and blood vessels. The coloring or tint of the skin is secreted from the blood by the fourth subdivision of the epidermis. This coloring material is called Melanin and its chemica...
