Plant Oats! Plant Oats!
Louisiana harvested this summer
105.000 acres in oats producinj
2,365,000 bushels. Four parishes
Concordia, East Carroll, Madisor
and Tenses produced over a millioz
and a half bushels; and had na
difficulty in marketing their sur.
plus at a fair price--42c (average)
per bushel, f. o. b. shipping point.
Oats meet the three essential
qualifications of a staple cash crop
(1) safe production. (2) fair profit
(3) market demand.
The oat crop is the safest and

Combating the Black Weevil
The black weevil is the wo st
enemy of corn from the time it
bcgins to mature in the field until
it is disposed of by fee:ling or sell
ing on the market. This insect
lives during the winter months in
crevices in the cribs, barns and
other adjacent buildings. Very
few of then will spend the winter
in the field.
The eggs are deposited in the
bui ildings as soon as the weather
becomes warm in the spring. The
first generation emerages some
time in May. Corn fields located
near the farm buildings are the
first to become infested, as large
numbers of adult weevil emigrate
during the warm days of the
spring and summer.
Breeding begins in the fields
usually when the ears are fit for
Sroasting. If the field is near wood
Sland the number moving into it
m may be as large as from hbuildings
>f Early corn always fares worse that
which matures late. It may be
in feasible to plant some early corn
:n for the weevils to feed upon, leav
ie ing the other almost free. The
e I tight shuck is essential and can be
i- secured by field selection.
ý. Carbon bisulphide is the mate
rial to use in combating the weevil.
The gas formed is heavier than
air, hence it will go to every part
of the corn, The crib must be air
, tight when it is used, to secure the
. best results. The amount to use
p is from twenty to twenty-five
pounds per 1000 cubic feet of space,
whether the crib is filled with corn
or not. Warm weather is the best
I time to use it as the weevil becomes
inactive when the temperatute is
a# low as 60 degrees.-.A.. P,

'The Warrens of Virginia", the
picturization of Wm. C. DeMille's
frmous Broadway hit of the same
name now being offered by Jesse
L. Lasky is associatiou with David
Belsaeo, might truly be described
as a Civil War drama of the North
and the South. Probably no other
was drama ever so conscientiously
tried to show both sides of the
straggle. It is more than neutral.
It positively takes both sides of
the question, showing the sinceri.
ty of conviction both on the part
of the Northern soldiers and their
gallant Southern adversaries.
The great moral of the story is
that political differences should
never end in personal enmities.
The Southern General who fights
most heroically for the Lost Cause
has yet such a broad view of life
that he urges his daughter to follow
the dictates of her heart and marry
the Northern man, now a Lieute

in the days "befo' the war"
