How Women Have Progressed What wil be the twentieth century woman's "declaration of rights ?" Ever since the English barons cor nered King John and made him sign on the dotted line, oppressed groups have been presenting "bills of wrongs' and "charters of rights" to the powers that be. For a long time men monopolized the business of writing out their griev. ances. It was not until 1848 thai women, meeting in Seneca Falls. New York, discovered and formulated their own Declaration of Indepen. dence. Now comes the announcement thal Women from all parts of the country who met at Washington on May 21s1 to dedicate the new national headquar. ters of the Woman's party revived this 1848 declaration and brought it up to date issuing a 1922 woman's "char. ter of rights." For, according to the Woman's par ty leaders, while great advances have been made in the campaign to abolish the discriminations against women listed by these early pioneers many in justices still remain. Only one part of that...

FOODS THE CHILDREN LIKE WHICH ARE GOOD FOR THEM. Strange, the preverseness of peo ple, that is, of everybody else; for they won't do what we want them to. Stub bornness is about on a par with queerness and you know the old Quaker said, "Everybody is queer, except me and the-and I think thee is a little peculiar." Try our best we can't inveigle our children into liking what we want them to like, and we know that diet plays a most important part in their health. We must not be continually dosing them, but we must keep them well by the proper foods. The noraml child may eat any rea sonably simple diet, varied enough to give some of all food elements. The frail child should have plenty of milk and eggs, and all children should have generous amounts of fresh fruits and vegetables. The shortage of these in the child's diet probably accounts for most of his illnesses. Ripe ba nanas, baked if the stomach is deli cate, stewed prunes, figs, eggs, cod dled-not fried, .thoroughly cooked breakfa...

"I don't know," answered the Fat Sister, obsessed with one idea, "If I did, I'd try it." It is simple as can be, if you know how to reduce, and need not be a hardship. You do not have to starve, though, perhaps, if you feel for a time as though you were starving. To overeat is such a common habit. Your psychological attitude will have a great deal to do with the plea Sure of the process. Instead of pity lag yourself...

LOUISIANA CLUBS HOUMA-TERRE BONNE NOTES Houma, La., May 11, 1922. Mrs. M. C. Herget, Baton Rouge, La. Dear Mrs. Herget-Please accept this report for publication of the' news of the Third District. If there is anything to cut out, by all means, do so. I thought that the message of what each club was doing and the means of raising the money for the work would help the other clubs; so I asked the presidents for material of that nature. If at any time you wish to give a suggestion as to the data which I will endeavor to collect for you, don't hesitate to do so, as I am a greenhorn at this work, and I am arguing from the standpoint that ev ery one likes to have his efforts recognized. "The Woman's Club of Gueydan realized $71.65 from a Community Concert, which fund they used to pur chase a new book-case and 41 vol umes of collateral reading material for the High School. The club mem bers helped to sell tickets for the Chautauqua and promised a contribu tion in case of a deficit. They ob ...

Choosing a Profession (Continued from last issue.) 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. WHY I BECAME A FARMERETTE. (Etta V. Higdon). Not so many years ago, when I was little girl, I wanted worse than any thing else in the world to be a boy. The situation was desperate. In fact, I was in the frame of mind outlined by the limerick, "There was a young girl who said, 'Why Can't I look in my ear with my eye? I'm sure I could do it, If I put my mind to it; You never can tell till you try'!" There was a reason for this pe culiar idea that had become implant ed in my mind. All the little boys I knew were joining Pig Clubs. Ev erywhere I went someone was talk ing about Pig Clubs; I felt myself an outsider, all because I was a girl. One day, grown desperate with longing, I recklessly tried to kiss my elbow, (which, as every one knows, is the magic formula for instantly changing a girl to a b...

At any rate, I am satisfied with my choice, believing that as a farmer I can live a happier and more useful life than I could had I chosen another profession. MY CHOICE OF A PROFESSION. (Nancy Stumberg.) Had I been asked a week ago what I expected my profession in life to be, I should have answered with vim and enthusiasm, but as I have since been informed that this desire is only a natural outcome of my stage in life, I have grown somewhat reticent about discussing my recent ambitions. I can well remember when, as a child, I stretched a rope across the yard for practice purposes, with vi sions of betoming the most tight-rope walker that ever caused an admiring populace to hold its breath. This, of course, was the day after the circus, and the idea was suddenly dispelled when Newton's law proved its veraci ty as my head and the hard,...

LOUISIANA DIVISION LEAVES FROM A DIARY 1892. By N. D. Smith. The following is a little memory of a Confederate reunion by "Miss Nan", otherwise Miss Annie Davis Smith, the great neice of President Jefferson' Davis, his amenueusis and devoted admirer. Her life, "busy with Uncle," was a happy dream-all gone. She now resides with his sister Mrs. J. Stirling at "Locuit Grove,' t'he fam ily home of the Davis' in West Fe liciana Parish, La., where Mr. Davis first wife died and is buried. Miss Nan has decorated that "God's Acre" until it is a beauty spot on earth and I am sure that it would be the last of many misfortunes if Sarah Taylor Davis' sacred dust was taken away. Besides, she is not the only Taylor buried in West Feliciana. In the woods at Laurel Hill, there are three graves. Mrs. L. E. Argue thinks one of three contains the body of the young sister of Zachary Taylor as his parents lived there before they moved to Baton Rouge. -S. T.S. Leaves From a Diary.

THIRD STREET AS IT HAS BEEN AND IS TODAY (By Capt. John McGrath.) Had any man or woman as late as 1852 predicted that in years to come a massive seven story building would crown the site at the corner of Third and Florida streets he would soon find himself in the asylum at Jackson and yet the writer has lived to wit ness Third street converted from a place of gardens, yes and a peach orchard, to its present condition of fine buildings with no open spaces. Every one of the present buildings from Boulevard to North street, with the single exception of the old house at the corner of Third and Conven tion, has iwen erected or remodeled and modernized since 1852 and only one or two have been remodeled, one at the corner of Third and North and it has yet I believe some of the orig inal timber used in its construction. The original house was the house of Governor Walker during his occu pancy of the Executive office. Now let me present a picture of Third street when I first knew it. Be ginn...
