PARISH MAIES ARRANGEMENTS TO PAY CASH FOR

The finiance committee of the
Police Jury of Washington Parish
met at Franklinton Wednesday
morning with Magee Ott and J. B.
Lindsley, representing the Washin
ton Bank and Trust Co., when ar
rangments were made to finiance
the Parish for the -present year.
This means that during this year
there will be no "dead paper" of the
Parish floating around as heretofore
and all work will be paid for in cold
animals to the pound but it is the IlIt

the running at large of hogs and

ordinance.
Then don't let your dog run lose

for if he does not wear a tag he
will be picked up, taken to the
pounl where he will be held for a
few days and then there comes a
funeral and poor "Fiddo," regard

ONE OF THE CREATEST STOCK ARMS IN SOUTH 15 TO
BE L.CATE NIEA BOOCALUSA; WORK ALREADY BEGUN
A model stock farm, one of the
finest in the South, is to be started
near Bogalusa and a new enter
prise not only promises to give Boga- tl
lusa much publicity but to show a ti
nice return to the investors. it
The articles of incoporation have 1 n
not been filed but two thousand six c
hundred acres of land has been C
purchased and already a large force li
of men are at work fencing the r
property which is located near Isa- C
bell, about 8 miles from Bogalusa on
the Franklinton branch of the N.
0. G. N. The necessary amount
of capital has already been sub
scribed.
Nothing but registered Herford
cattle will be raised on this farm
and one of the best stock expelts
in the country will have charge'f
it. D. T. Cushing, Assistent Treasurer
of the Great Southern Lumber Co.,
i is said to have been the originator
n of the idea and also a heavy in
vestor.
t The opening of such a stock farm
will mean much for Bogalusa and
•. surrounding territory and that the
e, proposition will prove a success goes
g without saying as the men who
e are interested in the project usually
le "do things." 4s soon as it is a
s- proven success others will follow
s- their steps and Bogplusawill soon
become an important cattle center.
