The Lafayette Advertiser had
the following regarding the better
zmetbods of farming, as a result of
the United States farm demonstra
tion work in that parish:
U. S. .District Agent L. E.
Perrin was in Lafayette WVednes
Sday and gave the following report
on farm conditions in the parish:
I visited part of the north west
of the Parish with local agent A.
A. Domingues and was glad to see
that the farmers are adopting more
generally the principles advocatedl
by the U. S. l)epartment of Agri
culture. Anyone who has not seen
the section for 5 years woild
hardly recognize the farms.
The change in corn stand from
2 stalks to one stalk in the drill
has proved that more corn is
obtained, and that deep early pre
paration of the land rendlers work
more easy and helps in keeping
moisture till needed by the plants.
A better laying-by process is
being given with the harrow,
leaving a loose mulch in the mid
dies and protecting against drouth.
More peas are planted.
A new pea planting machine (5
rows at a time) is used very effect
ively and with great saving.
Few extremists are leaving stalks
too close in the drill for the strength
of the soil, and will probably learn
a lesson in the next thirty or forty
The cotton plants, while not of
large size, are strong and a good
stand can be observed everywhere
---the result of more harrowing
before thinning out.
95 per cent of the crop is chopp
ed, free of weeds and on a well
A more rational use of imple
ments is seen everywhere, the class
of farmers of the section being
ambitious to know more and more
Some fine second year fields of
lespedeza have been seen, with
splendid stand. Some will be cut
twice with good returns.
Mr. P. J, Scanlon has still some
fine cabbage; Mr. Perrin having

How to Fight
the House Flies
Pyrethrum powder burnt in a
house stupefies a fly until you can
sweep him out and put him where
he belongs. A little of this burnt
in the rooms in the morning---after
which the room should be aired--
will make the house exempt from
flies all day. Twenty drop of car
bolic acid dropped on a hot shovel
or on any piece of warm iron
creates a vapor that lays flies low.
The common mignonette plant
grown in jars and placed in a room
makes things unpleasant for flies.
A handy thing is white clover. It
is strange, but dflies hate the order
of white clover. Have a little of
this around in a vase and you will
Sotice that the flies have business
in another direction. This clover
P should be renewed every day or so,
cfor when it becomes dry it irritates
the nostrils. A cheap and efective
Cpoison not dangerous to human
p lifeIs bichromste of potash in
solution. One dram dissolved in
two ounces of sweetened water and
Splaced ia shallow dishes call the
long roll for any number of the
pests. Another remedy that for
alh purposes has few equals in a
solution of formalia, or formalde
hjde in water. A spoonful of this
ltaid l a quarter of a pint of
water left eposmed in a room will
mske the la scarce i a very
shorttime. Flies are sensitive to

Tigers Were Shut Out.
The Tigers journeyed over to
Gueydan Sunda#, where they put
up a game of base ball, and to say
the least, they were completely
outclassed by the Gueydan team.
The Tigers are a good bunch of
boys, but as yet have not put up
the game that they have a strong
desire to do. As stated in our last
issue, that there would soon be
some "goose egg" games, and the
Tigers allowed the first shut out
