He told the citizens pres, it that he thought they could get' from the police jury all the moral, civil and sanitary protection they needed by appearing ...

The jury went out to decide the fate of her husband; it was wretched, it was dreadful, but soon they would go back home and all these people with their eyes would he turned away from her. He would be ploughing on the hill again and sheil would watch him from the kitchen door while she fed the chickens. fIow grand the old peacock strutted in thel spring time sun! She wondered "vaguely if he had killed any of the little chicks. She felt so tired, she saw two spiders on the wall suckine the blood out of a fly and roused her self with a start-oh horrible!-her hand stole out to touch Charlie, as it were to see how he felt, but the mag netism was so great between them that they were still. Then she saw an old neighbor, sitting in a window, take his pipe out of his mouth and look up suddenly; it scared her to death, the quick blood rushed to her heart and she...

SYOUNG FOLK'S DEPARTMENT MORE ABOUT DARING BOYS OF t THE CIVIL WAR t c A Strange Craft With Which to Nav a igate the Turbid Mississippi In this issue of the Woman's Enter- t prise I will attempt to describe the method adopted by one of the boys who escaped frO this federal invested t city during the evil war to enter "thei tented field" of the Confederates; "to seek bubble reputation at the can non's mouth," as the poet has it, but that readers of this sketch may bet ter understand the subject it will be necessary to go back beyond the Civil war to relate the way adopted by cat tle drivers to get stock across the river so as to avoid the expense of ferrage. Previous to the Civil war an exten- 1 sive section of southwest Louisiana was known as the Attakapas and as railroads had not yet penetrated that portion of the state to furnish trans portation, horses, mules and horned stock were raised in enormous quan tities and these, to reach markets, had to be driven long distances.

Capture of the Indianola mOeO5"O in"Omom2O.O.O.O.. 0O A Desperate Undertaking in Which Several Baton Rouge Boys Participated. The following thrilling account of the capture of Federal gunboat In dianola from the pen of Captain C. W. Gallagher, published in the Times Picayune of September 21, 1913 is of local interest to Baton Rougeans as several of our soldiers participated in the hazardous venture. Among those whose names Woman's Enterprise has been able to learn were John R. Nes bit, C. A. Roberts and Frank Pon.el vert, the two latter of whom are yet living. This paper is indebted to Mrs. Gallagher, a neice of the late Mrs. E. T. C. Longmire, of New Or leans, so well knoven and beloved in U, D. C. circles: Gen. Grant decided to occupy and control the river between Vicksburg and Port Hudson by running his most formidable boats by the batteries at Vicksburg at favorable opportunities and have them patrol the river be tween the two points. One of the first to make the at tempt was th...

Dome. Hiso=oric -OEOv o=s Some Historical Events From French Pioneers to Roselawn Memorial Park. Until the establishment of that love ly City of the Dead, Roselawvn, ceme teries of Baton Rouge have been of 'ueh burial capacity only as are found in villages and small towns, and alto gether inadequate to the (lemands of present and rapidly increasing popula tion and are also extremely untidy, and more or less nerlcted. They have become congested and overcrowded, and the demand of one or more of modern construction was imperatively demanded. When provided, ceme teries should embrace an area of acre age of sufficient dimensions to meet the demands of generations and the growth of average American commu nities, and these demands have been fully met by the projectors of the Roselawn Memorial Park. No better proof of the unwisdom of confining burial places within narrow metes and bounds may be pointed out than by referring to spots where once, and not so long ago, the earthly re mains of t...

EARLY HISTORY OF OLD BATON ROUGE HOW SUGAR CANE CULTURE WAS STARTED HISTORY OF SUGAR INDUS TRY IN ALL OF ITS BRANCHES (Sarah Turnbull Sterling.) The year 1749 marked an event that was to make a great change in the welfare of Louisiana. This was the planting of sugar cane by Jean Etienne de Bore, and the result-the first well granulated sugar. Others had tried, the Jesuits, 1751, Dubris, a wealthy planter, Mendez and Solis, "had given some attention to the planting of that reed", "one of them boiled its juice to syrup; the other distilled it into a spiritous liquor of a very inferior uality called taffia." "Bore was born in Kaskasia, in the Illinois district, on December 27, 1741. His father was Louis de Bore of an old Norman family; his mother was Therese Celeste Carriere de Montbrum. Robert de Bore, one of the Councilors and a Steward of Louis XIV household, was one of Bore's ancestors. Etienne Bore received a military training, which may account for the self reliance and firmness ...

CO-EDS PART AT TIE LOUISIANA STATE UNIVERSITY - -..... . IA -f t II ?I r lWAlr I FORI AN INTEGRAL AND IMPORTANT FACTOR IN LIFE AT TlHE UNIVERSITY By RUTH HARRIS. Some clear November morning, when walls seem confining and there is that snap in the air that compels the spirit out of doors, and gives one that delicious, blithsome feeling that it's a good old world, pull on a heavy sweater and take a walk to the cam pus of Louisiana State University. There's life for you-youth and col or and movement and pep-oh, it's a bonny morning, and the adjectives will come to your tongue in a flurry and trip and become tangled and end in one sensation of good feeling and fun and work-but if you try to de fine that sensation, you'll find the words tumbling over one another again, and you'll simply look on and feel glad. The bugle, sounding for the end of the class hour, has just blown, and across the campus in all directions are hurrying co-eds and men students, but your eyes will follow the co-ed...

CO EDS' PART AT L. S. U. (Continued from Page Two) when others are admitted to member ship in the winter term. As 10 points earned by hiking, bicycling, or taking part in final match games, are requir ed for membership, it can be seen that the one hundred is an athletic bunch. The purpose of the Athletic Asso ciation is to promote athletics, to cre ate a love of sports and to foster the ideal of good sportsmanship. Its sports are so varied that every mem ber may come to the front in one or more. Volley ball, basket ball, base ball, tennis, track, hiking, bycycling, and the keeping of hygiene cards, fur nish a sport and a means of keeping strong and healthy, all the year round. W. A. A. members, with invited co eds who are not members, go on fre quent hikes and "weiner" roasts throughout the year. At the W. A. A. cabin on the Perkins road, generously loaned to the association by a Baton Rouge man, week end parties are held often. The cabin is screened and is completely equipped for c...
