t PA nFftf°f F- Lutterloh, the genial editor of the New
LflbAi/^on jjews, on last Friday morning. Brother Lut-
terloh says the young man weighs eleven
pounds and from all the expressions he has been
able to get from Master Quince he thinks be

Good for Editor Lutterloh. And We under-
stand that on the same day Editor Jas. J. Steld-
ley, of the DeRidder Enterprise, also had an
addition to his staff in the person of James J.
Steidley, Jr., who tipped the beam at eleven
pounds and who has already taken charge of
the Steidley household and office. The Good
Book counsels us to show our faith by our
works and these editors are following the divine
injunction and are doing their part towards
populating the country.

DON’T LET THE WORK LAG-
The business men of the city who are inter-
ested in the Orange Commercial Club should
set* to it that this work does not lag, but that
the organization is pushed right along.
The committee who have in charge the mat-
ter of soliciting membership and securing funds
can, right now, do more than anybody or any-
thing else to make the organization a success
ir a failure.
If they vigorously prosecute the work before
them, secure a big list of members and ample
funds pledged for carrying on the work, the
organization can get down to business right
away, employ a secretary and go to getting re
If they lag Itehind and delay* their part of the
work, however, then the thing will be a failure,
the enthusiasm will die out, nothing will lie ac-
complished and we will be in worse condition
than before the effort was made to organize.
But the gentlemen who comprise this com
mittee are not going to lag; they are not going
to let the organization “die a-bornin’ ” for
lack of interest on their part.
They wiH, no doubt, be ready to report at the
-meeting of the executive committee to be held
As they pass among the business men of the
community*, it is to be sincerely* hoped that they
will be given a cordial reception and not be met
with growls and grumbles of discontent.
Remember, please, that the members of this
soliciting committee are working" out of pure
patriotism and a desire to see Orange grow
They have no personal or individual interest to
serve or axe to grind, so meet them with a smile
and a word of encouragement and let them know
that you, as a business man and a loyal citizen
of Orange stand ready to do your part in helj
ing to build up the community*.
By all means, let’s push forward the work
and get the organization down to a business
Time is flying and opportunities arc passing
We simply cannot afford to delay.
The final surveys for that section of the inter-
coastal canal lying between the Calcasieu and
the Sabine have been made and soon it is
hoped it will be decided which route will he
aken. Orange has been persistent in its ef-
orts to have the canal so constructed as to pass
that city instead of entering the Sabine at a
x>int below. The matter of distance will not
>e much if any greater, but the expense of con-
struction may have variation enough to prove
the deciding factor.—Beaumont Enterprise.
And it lias pained us beyond measure to learn
that the only objection to the route being
changed so as to bring the canal nearer to Or-
ange has been registered by n Beaumont citi
Of course, we don’t believe, though, that
A KNOCK FROM PORT ARTHUR.
A good road has lieeu provided for from the
Sabine river to the east line of Lafayette parish
in Louisiana. On this side of the river Jeffer-
son county* already* has good roads. Liberty
county is getting ready* to build good roads.
Harris county has just authorized a half mil-
lion dollar bond issue for good roads. But the
Texas good roads and the Ixiuisiana good roads
fail of connection—lteeause Orange county, or
rather, the city of Orange, is not willing to d"o
its part. Orange is situated on the eastern bor
der of its county. A ami road through the
»v: county to Beaumont rnigm enable some of the
p farmers living in the western part to go to
Beaumont to do their buying, especially if a
good wagon bridge were built across the
f Neelies. But so long as the bridge is not tin re.
g the farmers will have to drag through miles of
rough, muddy road to trade in Orange. And
it is to continue this that Orange county* refuses
to build her part in the Southern good ijomhc
movement.—Port Arthur News.
Just where Editor Stump found any warrant
for such a charge as the above we arc at a loss
to understand. Guess he just naturally felt
mean and decided to vent his spleen on Orange.
Orange has persistently advocated the idea of
good roads and especially a good road between
this city and Beaumont. In fact, our enthusi
asts have even suggested that the road be con
atructed .so as to not only give farmers in the
Western part of this county* an opportunity to
go to Beaumont, but to also give those fortu-
nate enough to possess automobiles an opjx>r-
tunity to drive their cars through to Port Aim
In fact, some of the citizens of Orange have
. already paid out of their own ftockets the money
used in grading the road for several miles of
the distance between Orange and Beaumont,
and are doing all in their power to have the road
Extended to a connection with the Jefferson

Peary to the North Pole, is to go on the lecture
platform, and will make his debut as a lecturer
in New York Sunday night. It is his manager’s
intention to have Henson follow the route
throughout the country on which Dr. Cook is
now lecturing, answering Dr. Cook in each city
he visits in an effort to contradict Hr. Cook’s
statement that he found the Pole. It’s none of
our business, but we can’t help suggesting to
Mat that he will live longer and come in contact
with fewer rotten eggs if he stays out of Texas.

Yea. verily. Henson had letter stay in the
North and lecture to the negrophiles. He might

should attempt any of his lecture stunts down

than the lack of timely aid.
Just run a bill if you want your momentary
friends to keep their eye on you.
The most subtle power for your uplift or
your degradation is your daily association. The
most rapid is the downward movement.

When Deakyne walked In late one
afternoon and. with a sigh that might

disconsolate things, softly aet his
suitcase down, the other fellows in
the office were not aurprlsed.
They were alarmed.
They thought that somethin* mutt

"Anythin* the matter?" one of
them asked, tenderly and sympathet-
"Oh, no," answered Billy; “not a

The fellows looked st each other
quickly, significantly, and felt relieved
Billy had elected that summer to
take his vacation on a farm. The day
he left he had been sneering about the
“barbaric violence” that characterized
the business streets and the "hideous
noises" that ’stifled bis very soul.”
He told them that he was going to sn
old-fashioned farm, where he could
spend a few days as the “Creator In-
tended man to live'.”
Naturally his early return was a
matter of interest.
“Things didn't pan out?" ventured
another, In tones that Invited confi-
dence. “Tell us about It, Billy ”
Every fellow was looking as solemn
sa he could. Consequently Billy talked.
"No more." he said decisively, with
a shudder, as at a bad memory "Down

poets, but a hall bedroom and a
civilized mattress and gas and a bath-
tub and runntug water within walking

A yap of a boy with one cheek
bulged with a quid of tobacco and a

the station. He had an old spring
wagon, aa they called It, to which was
hitched a plug of a horse that seemed
to be forever trying to make up for
lost sleep. In the back end of the
wagon was a rocking chatr for me to
sit la. I climbed up and perched, ev-
erybody st the station looking on, and
