BOYE' CORN CLUBS.
Will Make Exhibits at the Louisiana
State Fair-Many Premiums
That the State of Lo~isiana is stead
fly developing into a splendi, corn-pro
ducing territory will be demonstrated
at the State Fair this year by numer
ous exhibits from the boys' corn clubs.
The exhibits will be on display in the
agricultural building, and will oooupy
very conspicuous space. Five hundred
dollars in premiums will be ;warded.
for best ten-ear exhibits a;d club dks
plays. All varieties of corn will be
allowed in the contest.
There are sixty-two of these clu in
Louisiana, with a total memberitp of
about 3,000. Every parish is repseaent
ed, due to the remarleable spread of
the movement inaugurated among the
juvenile farmers a few years ago, and
liberally encouraged by the State fair
Association and other agenles. There
is promise of between 1,000 and 1,200
exhibits of ten ears eseh, or a total
of about 12,000 ears of cern. It will
be the largest display ever made by
the boys' clubs in Louisiana. In order
to have little trouble getting the ex
hibits to Shreveport, the Fair Asso
ciation has arranged to furnish each
member of the club with a ten-ear corn
carton, or box, for shipment by parcel
post. The cartons will be seat to the
superintendent of each elub for dis
tribution. Each club is entitled to not
less than ten ten-ear exhibits, nor more
than thirty exhibits.
Prof. E. S. Richardson, director of
the extension work of the Lenisiana
State University, is superintendent of
this department, with A. B. Kidder of
Baton Rouge as assistant superintend
ent. Leigh F. Maxcy of Curran, Ill.,
will be judge.
To each member of the boys' clubs a
free ticket to the ahir will be given,
for the managemeat feels that too
much encouragement cannot be given
these young agriculturists, who are ao
tive in showing the world that Louisi
ana has a great future in the corn
The fair opens November 5, and

BABY CONTEST AT FAIR.
Will. Be One of the Most Popular
Features-Mrs. Frank DeGarmo
No announcement in connection with
the plans for the Louisiana State Fair
this year is more significant than the
one authorized by the management, to
the effect that Mrs. Frank DeGarmo
will be superintendent of the Baby
Show. Mrs. DeGarno now resides in
St. Louis, where she is prominent in
charitable work, but formerly she liv
ed in Shrevepost. It was through her
efforts that the first Eugenics Baby
Contest was held at the Louisiana Fair.
That wis in 1908, the year of the 3rd
fair of Louisiana. That show is declar
ed to have been the first of its sort in
the whole country, and served as a
model for many others since i! was
held in Shreveport.
Scores of beautiful and handsome
baby girls and boys will be ,oa. exhi
bition at this contest Prie agregat
ing $300 have been offered. -Of this
amount, the Woman's Home Compan
ion gave $200 to encourage the devel
opment of the eugenics movement.
The contest will be held ik the
Achumpert home rest room. There will
be competent physicians to make the
examinations. The contest will be gov
erned by standard rules.
The babies participating in tbh com
petition will be shown later in the Col
iseum. This feature promises to be one
of the most popular at the Fair. Past
records justify that prediction.

JOHN JACOB ASTBO..
America's first milliona~re, was a vet7
far sighted man. He left the little vil
lage of Waldorf on the Rhine to come to
this country of wonderful opportunities
to engage in the business of selling
pianos, but he soon learned that there
was more profit in the fur business. In
good years and bad years, he prospered
because under all circumstances he was
a rigid economist and close tradbr.
By the close of the eighteenth century,
he was the richest man in the United
States. Then, as his wealth continued
to grow, he did something which nearly
everybody thought was foolish. He
bought land on Manhattan Island, far
beyond the developed section, which to
the ordinary vision was not likely to be
encroached upon by the then little city
for generations to come. The wisest
men in New York said he was inviting
ruin, tying up vast sums in unproductive
land that meant nothing but taxes. But
he kept on buying land. In 1848, he died
leaving an estate wort h over $30,000,000.
