JAN. 11th, 1919 (r 1Z 7?" OUR FIRST FAILURE For the first time The Beacon-News, under the present management, is forced to beg the kind indulgence of its readers for failure to issue. Last week was the first time since the present editor has been at the helm that the old Beacon-News has failed to appear. These are unusual times and unusual things occur, misfortunes ver which we can exercise no control overtake us and we are made the victims of circumstances which we are powerless to alter. Last week the editor was compelled to go to Baton Rouee and New Orleans for several days on business for the Tensas Basin Levee District, j cf whiclrboard he has the honor to be secretary. Upon the day we were to Wave, Mr. Turner, who is the heart of the mechanical department, was stricken down with the "flu," and under the attack of the prevailing malady was confined to his bed for about a week. This left The Beacon-News floundering around in the storm of circumstances without a pilot or a rndder. We sent out numerous S. O. S. calls, bat failed to receive a single response. Many businesses have been forced, en account of the influenza, to suffer inconveniences and shortcomings,and we suppose we have no right to expect to be made any exception. However, we do hope that our patrons and friends, both of the subscription list of The Beacon-News and our job department, will bear with us for a few days until we can regain our equilibrium, at which time we promise to turn out all work as promptly anc" satisfactorily as we have been enabled to do in the past.

Central Savings Bank and Trust Company FISCAL AGENT: State of Louisiana, Parish of Ouachita, City of Monroe 31 This week we are called upon to Tender financial assistance to the freezing, starring Jews of Russian Poland, Lithuania and Bulgaria, people scattered over a wide section of the world yhich has been devastated ly the ruthless Huns. This is chari-1 ty fttJfcnd simple to which you are asked to respond, and the first time the Jews in all history have been unable to take care of their own with-out the assistance of their Gentile -friends. This proposition is too big S them to handle alone, and through the Jewish War Relief Society gener al financial aid Is sought to save millions of their race from death by star vation. In the war its slf and in every war relief or war me r sure the Jews of the i world have responded nobly and gen e erously, and we uhould show that we rare big enough ! and appreciative enough of their charity and patriot-, ism to render then assistance now. The Jews constitute one of the - greatest races that have ever - peopled the earth, arad are entitled to very consideration. There was a time when to have swung from Ju- dah'a consecrated loins? was better ' than to be born a king; when the em battled hosts of Israel made the world , tremble before their martial might, and men turned for knowledge to Zion' holy hill as tfuJ helianthus turns its face to the risin g sun. When our ancestors were but lirutal barba-rians, clad in skins stuped with . gharp stones from beasts bvelling in eaves and subsisting on roots and raw meat, with no aspirations above the E crudest creature comforts, no concep-of immortality, no dream of man'a high destiny, Solon son was mak ;,, ;ivr as the stones i n the streets of Jerusalm, the Jews w re worshipping the "Lord of Hos U," framing i, laws which are to. lay the bric ': principle of civilizati a, quelling semi-barbarous people w 1th the sword. computing the procefsioi 1 01 tr.e panels and weaving into th 1 woof cf human history those impe rishable gems of Foes' m4 philcacp? 17 which th XTorld's iroest tay tran end the gtr.-ius of mortal man and n t'ast. perforce, fee the gracious gift of Cod.

Tillman, one of the leading citizens of the 6th ward, was a callei on business at this office Tuesday of last week. There are so many cases of the "Flu" that we shall not attmept tc make any personal mention of our friends who are among the unfortu nate vctims of the prevailing malady. J. H.

CHAS T1TCHE. 0 A Rich Booze Find Albert Beach is one of the most oncst men in Richland parish. He ; demonstrated that fact one day the I Sr.-:t cf this week. He came along (the line of the V. S. & P. Ry., and I found at Bee Bayou about forty or 1 fifty quarts and as many pints of real whiskey, and brought the rich cargo in and turned it over to Sheriff Cooper. He did not know the owner of the wet goods, and no one has filed any claim,nor is it likely that ownership will ever be known, because it j is against the law to own that much liquor in dry territory. ! It is presumed that the booze was thrown off the train by some boot-I legger, who knew it would not be safe to get off at a station with sr j much of the forbidden goods, and be i fore the owner could return hu j goods was found by Mr. Beach. I o Red Cross The Home Service Department 01' the Richland Parish Chapter ha: handled 265 case3 since the organization of this Department in July, and funds to the amount of $90.85 have been spent in relief work.
