Items of Local Interest r THE FULL WEIGHT GROCERY. The success achieved by the Full Weight Grocery furnishes evidence of c the truth of the true and trite saying V that "there is more in the man than o in the location." No matter where located energy and close application I to business, honesty and fair dealing will draw and retain business. It was f not necessary for the Full Weight! r Grocery to seek a location in the prin cipal business section in order to at- c tract trade as its location at the cor- t ner of North street and Jackson Road t has drawn a throng of customers I from every section of the city and its two heavy trucks are kept constantly: on the move delivering goods North, east and south. To achieve such wonderful success proves conclusively that Mr. Saurage, the proprietor, is a man of fertile brain and wonderful energy, in whom customers have firm faith that they get in weight and quality what they pay for. This establishment is well i and justly named Full Weight ...

Choosing a Profession What Are You Going to be When You Grow Up? Perhaps These Discussions by Freshmen of the Louisiana State University Will Help You to Decide MIY CHOICE OF A PROFESSION (Lawrence T. Phelan). Boys may be roughly divided intl two groups; first, those whose chie: delight in childhood was the playini of soldiers or policemen; second those who derived an almost fanatic. al delight from the dissecting of the faithful family clock, or, if they were very ambitious, the new player-pi ano. The parents of the former, observ ing that the adult male population of our nation does not consist solely of soldiers, sailors, firemen, and police men, and wisely concluding from this evidence that at some time in his youthful career the average boy's ambitions plainly experience a change, find it the part of wisdom to en courage the young imitators of oui defenders of life and liberty on the grounds that these childish aspira tions provide a safe outlet for the excess animal spirits of...

At one of the Women's Clubs at a recent meeting, the neces sity of securing the services of an active Probation officer was discussed and it was generally agreed that under the present system results such as desired were not obtained; that if any thing was accomplished in the way of caring for truant and delinquent children nothing was apparent on the surface. It was the consensus of opinion that a probation officer should give his or her full time and individual attention to the duties of the position and not limit their services to drawing a salary which they have not earned.

HISTORICAL la re THE FIRST SUNDAY m CLOSING ORDINANCE W to While the Spanish authorities were m charged by the revolutionists who suc- fr ceeded them with undue oppression sc and extortion, the order of the Span- ni ish commandant closing all stores, sa- a loons, factories, cock pits and other ai establishments during Sundays until o' after Church hours, that is, until one o'clock, p. m., may have been consid ered oppression of the most grevious nature for if we are to form an opin- te ion by reading the old Spanish records b. the English speaking element of the al district of Baton Rouge was composed r' of a most unholy set, for no sooner W were the Spanish authorities de- u] throned than establishments of every rt character were thrown open and the P' wildest revelry indulged in.

WATS I A NAIME Setting Forth the Fact That There is No Law Compelling a Woman To Take Her Husband's Name. (By Lavinia H. Egan, of Shreveport, Member National Council, Na tional Woman's Party.) The Louisiana Branch of the Na tional Woman's Party, in it's Woman's Bill of Rights, is not asking that a woman be allowed to retain her own name after marriage. It is asking only that legal discriminations against women be removed. There is no dis crimination in this regard in the laws of any state, so it is quite obvious that, even by implication, we are not asking for the removal of a thing which does not exist. Just how our Civil Code, otherwise so exigent in everything affecting a woman's interests, could have escaped placing upon her an inhibition with I regard to her name is not quite under stood. The fact remains, however, that there is no status on the sub ject, while reported cases show that many women sue for divorce in their maiden name. Colopuhoun on Roman Civil Law In the Modern ...

C While the battle fought at that place does not rank with the greater battles n of the Civil War in which great num bers were engaged, yet for desperate fighting, heroic bravery and tremend ous loss of life for the number en gaged, no battle of the war, great or small, surpassed it in per centage nor tI was in any a more decisive victory tl for the Confederacy than at Mansfield. e: The Enterprise says: b On Saturday, April 8th, the 66th anniversary of the battle fought at Mansfield, on the 8th of April, 1864, was celebrated by Camp Mouton No. 'r 41, United Confederate Veterans. e The first celebration was held in 1869 just four years after the bloody con- b flict wa:. fought, and for 53 years P the veterans have never failed to cel- s< ebrate the da...

It had been a long struggle to pay for the little house but it was worth it for it was theirs-her house and Jim's house. How she adored the little house-every inch of it was sacred to her! May had never known a home be fore her marriage to Jim. Her mother had died when she was but a little girl, and her father spent most of his time and all of his money down at Gibb's barrel-house. Con sequently, May was left to the charity of various relatives. Of course, she was treated like the usual poor re lation, living first with one and then with another, being the scullery-maid or nurse-girl after school hours. How ever, she managed to graduate from high school, notwithstanding these difficulties. It was on her graduation night that Jim Hale sa...
