What A Boy Said About
Every boy and girl in the Mon
roe District should read this let
ter and study it. If Otis Woods
in the hills around Dodson can
do this, what cannot the boys and
girls of this section accomplish
when they once set themselves to
the task. Every boy and girl
who takes up this hog industry is
a patriot. Let's keep the $481,

better citizens, to build up the
home industry and to make this

Baton Rouge, Ia.,
March 14th, 1913.
Prof. H. M. Cottrell, Agricultural
Commissioner, Rock Island Lines,
Dear Professor Cottrell:
Balis has just returned to the of
fice from a visit to Dodson and
makes the following report on the
work done by Otis Woods, a pu
pil of the Dodson Agricultural
School ond a member of the boys,
hog club. The record that this
boy has made will, perhaps, serve
as an incentive to other boys and
girls belonging to the clubs.
On last year this boy bought a
gilt for ten dollars. He raised I
his pig according to instructions
and exhibited her at both the
Parish and State fairs. At Dod
son, where the parish fair was
held, he won sweepstakes over
both men and boys.
He exhibited his page along
with 96 others from different
parts of the State and won first
prize. At both fairs he won
sixty-five dollars in cash. He
was offered at this time seventy
dollars for his gilt. Since that
time out of only one litter he has
sold seventy dollars and fifty cent
worth of registered pigs. He
has left on hand out of the litter,
two pigs worth ten dollars each.
In addition to the premiums he
received at the fairs he has re
ceived two pigs from the Fort
Worth Stock Yords worth twenty
five dollars. Thus making two
hundred fifty seven dollars and
fifty cents gross.
Professor Horton, the Agricul
turist at the Dodson Agricultural
School has ninteen boys who own
registered pigs. Professor Hor

00OMINGi UP OIL WELL
The citizens of Marksville are
alert to the fact that there might
be a vast wealth in an oil well,
which was at one time pro- 1
nounced "no good," but which I
expert oil men claim has great
quantity of the priceless fluid, I
and all that might and vim will I
be able to accomplish to the I
securing of enough money to
operate the well, and form a 4
company is being tried by the i
spirited people of that enterpris
ing little city.
There is a company being
formed for the purpose of drill
ing the well, where experts
claim there are oil and gas, and 1
Mr. C. Gaspard, cashier of the (
Avoyelles Bank & Trust Com
pany, with several other promi- f
nent citizens of Marksville and +
Natchez, Miss., are busily en- I
gaged selling stocks in the com- (
pany, and is is expected that it
will not be long before there is I
enough stocks subscribed to and
paid for to commence drilling. 1f
If anyone is desirous of invest
ing in oil stocks, this is a splen
did opportunity, as it is said that
the chances for the discovery of
oil are ninety-nine to one.
Here is hoping that the peo
ple of Marksville will be blessed,
as most men who have seen the i
well seem to think, and that a
large oil well will be, drilled in '
the space of a few weeks.
Avoyelles is in need of it, as l
badly as St. Landry.

FOR THE RE-UNION
The veterans of the Civil war
all over the country are prepar
ing for the great peace re-union
to be held at Gettysbury, Penn.,
beginning on July 1st to 4th.
The Louisiana delegation
headed by Col. J. B. Sinnot, of
New Orleans, will probably leave
by special train from the Cres
cent City about June 28th. No
definite arrangements have been
made thus far.
The veterans are warnedthow
ever to be certain of having cre
dentials, and some manner of
identification. It would be prop
er to print the words contained
in the pamphlets, sent out to the
Confederate veterans, which are:
Credentials absolutely neces
sary.-To secure quarters in the
camp, the veteran must present
a certificate from a commander
of a U. C. V. camp or the Gov
ernor of his state, that he is a
bona fide Confederate veteran.
Identification.--It is suggested
that every veteran have on his
person a card or paper, stating
his name and address, so that in
case of accident he may be ident
