One of the most enjoyable fea
tures of the Fair was thile speech
on Saturday made by Hon. W. U.
Sullivan, of Bogalusa. Mr. Sul- a
livan is always anll interesting b
talker but even surpassed him. te

natural wit and even flow of hu- g
mor livened u) hiis common- u

dividuals, to do all possible for 1

if followed ulp, will tind us even k

Is ,ollisiana's l'ax il Moaloey
SMany a man has asked "Why
v. is Louisiana not the richest and
0 most Prosperous State in the
)n- Union?" I have asked that
of iquestion many times. Here is
the answer I got from the execu
tive head of a New Orleans con
s- cern which draws more than five
for million dollars annually from
the busines it does in Louisiana,
Mississippi, Arkansas, Texas and
d 4. Alabama.
isa, "Our cashier, every business
in the year, receives on an aver
for age more than S10, which under
normal conditions, would be de
old 1posited in some New Orleans
bank, But, because the law
' i of Louisiana can be so construed
ees as to impose a tax on money on C
1oak. hand and on deposit, which, in
rs,T. the very nature of the case,
would be prohibitive, we do not
.: '.: make our deposits in New Or
leans banks, but each and every
r, J evening send all the checks,drafts
J. E. and other forms of cash received
that day, to a bank in a northern
clerk, city in a State which does not lax
mI) money on hand and on deposit,
clerk, In this way we avoid the danger
Byrd, of a prohibitive tax. It is the
only thing we can do under the
t circumstances. It's tough on
Lonisiana though, because I
L. L. know of about forty other large
s. w, concerns which do the same
thing. This means that more
lr; than $100,(1:.,,000 are spent out
J. T. of the Sta:t' annually in order to jl
clerk, avoid prohibitive taxation. Thi
money would remain in Louisiana g
and be used to finance Louisi
on. ana industries and comme'rce if
the tax law were changed to con
Sform to the tax laws of other states
and countries. I am told almost
the nobody pays tie tax on money,
and that the state receives prac.
tically no revenue from it."
o In November tldie people of
were Louisiana will v't uo a c,nstitu
tional amendmemi to free money
re. on hand and on deposit fromn tax
what ation, and leading bankers esti
e im- mate that the adoption of that
gges- amendment will result in an in
r. crease, from home sourlces alonel,
it all of more than 81000,000 in the
i1 and amount of money annually avail
ina- able for the financing of tarmer
pos and merchant in Louisiana.
ng a As matters now stand fully
entire that amount of money annually
bens passes out of the State and into g
Sbor banks of other States, thus help-j
ing the farmers and merchants
elsewhere at the expense of the C
i. industries of Louisiana.

Model Kitchiels at stte F air.
A special feature of the exhibit
from the home economics depart
ment at the State Fair will be
two model kitchens. The kitchens.
will be up-to-date in very re
spect, having been planned with
reference to perfect sanitation,
convenience and beauty. The AY
finish of the walls, floor and 01
furnishings will be such that all
the cleaning may he done by G
simply turning on I, hotse.
It dosn't matter ,'ne her one is
3 well-to-do or illn ln, rate eircum
stances he may g.t at tlhe State
Fair all the informati,,n and
guidance needed to h.ve in the
home a kitchen that is sanitary
from floor to ceiling, as co.,veient
as careful planning can make Ii,
and as good to look at as t oe
rooms in which friends are enter
tained. Dark corners and musty
cupboards will be done away with
and fresh air and sunshine
nature's own purifying agents
will be brought in. It will be
urged, too, that the one who pre
pares the food must matc.h the
kitchen itself in wholesome neat
ness and cleanliness.
Very few kitchens are conven
iently arranged as very little
thought is given to that matter
or to the numerous devices for
saving time and labor. There
are four main requisites of all
kitchens; storage place for sup
plies; a work table on which to and
prepare the food; proper ar- shii
rangements for cooking; and the rea
water supply, including facilities
for dish washing and cleaning up.
The following arrangement is Rel
suggested: Group 1. Ice box,
preparing table, stove, serving
table. Group 2. Sink table, 0O
d sink drain, chilia and dish closets.
If the above are in the right
L*= relation to each other the prepa- eX(
ration and serving of a meal is we
accomplished with the least pos
sible number of steps, motion ]
and fatigue. These are the SU:
problems of every home-maker any
whether rich or poor; whether
she has many servants or none.
