Mr. E. P. Putnam, of the Ab
beville Live Stock and Feed Co.,
1e who has charge of the boll weevil
- contest. inforns us that many of
the weevils are being brought in
w. from all parts of the parish, and
Y. is of the opinion that many of the
Soills have been caused to fall by
the wet weather, and not all by
- Saturday there were over three
hundred pounds of them brought
in, and they are still coming in.
Today there were many wise
brought in the punctured squares. i
This plan is serving in a great 4
measure to bring about a change
in the way of raising cotton, and s
the farthers are realizing how easy 1
it is to ride their fields of the pests. 4
and since some are succeeding so I
well it will, undoubtedly, I
- prove to be a good demonstration 4
of what a farmer can do when he 1
tries, and above all, have the en- i

i Farming System
b- The following is taken from the
" Progressive Farmer, and is, in our
opinion, a true saying, and we look
forward with the hope of soon
d seeing our farmers gradually work
1e ing themselves up to this standard
y of farming; for when they begin to
work to this end so will they begin
to realize the importance of scien
e tific farming.
at The article follows:
a. The big fact of our time, so far
e as the'agriculture of the South is
3. concerned, is that we are in a period
at of transition from the old ruinous
re single-crop system of farming to
d a sounder and more profitable sys
y tem of general and livestock farm
a. ing. Many farmers seem not yet to
o have realized this fact, but is a
,, fact jubt the same. "The new spirit
n of Southern farmers is not so much
e the spirit of reform as the spirit of
i- revolution; and the revolution is
even now taking place. "It is not
only that Southern farmers are
r practicing better methods, getttng
al machinery, making better crops,
but that they are turning away
from the false ideas of a system
which looked only to the crop to be 1
soid in the fall, and accepting the
Sew idea of faming system which
looks frst of all to the preservatiea
o the soil and links one year with
h in an enduring effort toi
cdi continually to the farm's
productivity and to the profits the
fate shall receive from his work. I
The aouth of the future is going
to be a land of Socks and herds,
of corn fields and silos, of big. rp
- and heavy machinery, of ameadom
n and pastures and all the thinls
e which go with livest farming. hiis

Breaks His Arm
The many friends of our fellow
f townsman and efficient clerk of
- court regret to learn of the accident
which befell him while in Lafayette
Tuesday, he having the misfortune
t of breaking his arm.
The following account of the
I accident is taken from Tuesday's
edition of the Lafayette Daily Press:
"This afternoon at four o'clock
F Clerk of Court Zack Broussard, of
" Abbeville, broke his right arm
F just above the wrist in cranking
his automobile preparatory to
leaving for home. The accident
happened near the courthouse,
and the unfortunate man was taken
to Sheriff Lacoste's office, where
he was promptly attended to by
Dr. L. O. Clark. One of the bones
was fractured, the other dislocated
and probably splintered. The
physician declared this was worse
than if doth bones had been broken.
Mr. Broussard left for home after
his arm had been properly placed
in a special splint furnished by
the doctor, Mr. Broussard had
his family here with him. Chauf
feur Edmond Hebert replaced Mr.
Brouseard at the wheel.
