TEACHERS' INSTITUTE. s1
The second meeting of the Teach- fl
ers' Institute of West Feliciana par- W
ish was convened in the Julius Frey- i.
ban High School building on Friday it
and Saturday, October 25 and 26th. I
Roll call showed the noteworthy fact 8
of an almost full attendance, only tl
one teacher being reported absent. n
Among the enjoyable features of tl
the program may be mentioned the d:
interesting talk on the history of West 01
Feliciana parish given by Miss Hil- w
da Simmons as an opening exercise, ci
on Friday morning. The model les- i
son presented by Miss Irene Dillon f
was enjoyed by the members of the W
institute and by the visitors present, fr
and the discussion, which followed
was most helpful to the teachers. N
On Friday afternoon Dr. Coffey of 01
L. S. U. gave an encouraging talk, y;
in which he dwelt upon the consecra
tion of the teachers to their work. w
Quite a large audience assembled t
for the exercises on Friday evening. P'
Superintendent Hendon's inspiring cl
talk on "How to have a good school" f
dealt chiefly with the subject of co- a
operation on the part of the patrons.
He showed very clearly with what W
success the schools of the parish t
have come near realizing their educa- tl
tional aims. This fact he demon- fl
strated by tracing the careers of the s<
pupils who have gone out from the St
high school in the past few years. in
Dr. Coffey's very characteristic 01
talk on the influence of habit in ev
ery sphere of life was the concluding 61
number of the most enjoyable pro- 8
The officers elected for this ses
sion are Mr. Briedenbach, president, al
and Miss Latane, secretary. A pro- fr
gram committee was appointed and tt
they are arranging the program for ti
the next meeting in December. rt
The music by the teacher and pu- Pe
pils of the high school was enjoyed T
and appreciated by all. 1(
The patrons of the school kindly gl
brought lamps to light up the audito- a<
rium Friday night. How much bet- 84
ter it would be, if electric light fix-lii
tures could be put in this beautiful al
hall, to be used on these and simi- le
lar occasions. p
F. S. Percy made a business trip
to Norwood, this week. He speaks
enthusiastically of the cultivation of
pepper, which is being grown exten- ni
sively in that vicinity. The growers,
he says, are well-pleased with both
the crop and the prices. Trucking is
gaining ground in East Feliciana. A
large shipment of snap beans was
made from Ethel, this week.
Mr. George Wilcox has proved to if
us that the reports of his fine fall
garden are not exaggerated, remem
bering us with a basketful of fine
Irish potatoes, tomatoes and cabbages fi
He says he cannot supply the de
mand for the first two named vege
tables, selling large quantities, both
here and in Baton Rouge.
5 or 6 doses 666 will break any case ei
o; Chills & Fever; and if taken then,

The editorial household has been i
favored with an interesting invitation 11
worded as follows: "Mr. and Mrs. t
Francis Frederick Best request the 01
honor of your presence at the mar- t
riage of their daughter, Georgiana tl
Dell, to Dr. Woodson W. Montfort,
on the morning of Tuesday, the tT
twelfth of November, One thousand, fi
nine hundred and twelve, at nine of
the clock, Saint Paul's Episcopal
Church, Woodville, Mississippi."
Dr. Montfort is a prominent den
tist of St. Francisville, and Miss a
Best was a teacher at the Julius
Freyhan High School, last session, a
when she met and won the heart of
her bridegroom. It has been under
stood for some time that this was
why she deserted the school-room.
Their many friends here and at
Jackson, where both are also well
known, wish them an abundance of
happiness and prosperity. After thtl
wedding, the young couple will take
a short honeymoon trip, and then
come to St. Francisville, making
their home with Mr. and Mrs. Wade

SPRING CABBAGE FOR SHIPPING
There is no safer crop for the
trucker than the cabbage, when in
telligently grown. They should yield
from $100 to $500 per acre at t'he
T proper seasons. About the best all
around variety is the Brunswick
they are a medium in size and time
of maturing. The seed bed should
be prepared the last of October and
allowed to settle. It ought to be in
the garden or a protected place
against chickens and north winds.
The ground should not be too rich
but in good healthy condition. Plow
up bed 8 ft. wide, elevated to drain
well and above level, and rake dirt
so it will be a little inclined to the
south or east side of the bed. Con
struct cold frame on top of this bed.
The best dimensions to build this
frame for all purposes Is 5 ft. 8 in.
wide and 75 ft. long; use 1 in. x 10
in. plank; sink 2 in. in the dirt; let
it face south or east; 1 plank on
lower side and 2 on the back. Let
stakes be driven on the inside of
the frame to join the planks on, and
nail a thin strip over the crack in
the back where the two planks join;
draw the dirt well against the back
of the frame. One of the end boards
will have to be ripped to give in
cline, then fit small strips 1 in. x 2
Siz. every 4 feet on the inside of the
frame just level with the sides cut
with bevel and nail through plank
from outside into end of the strip.
Send to Peter Henderson & Co.,
New York, and get his heavy grade
of cold frame canvas; it comes 50
yards in the bolt for $7.00. Cut this
in -half and sew the edges together
with heavy thread on machine. You
tack this on top of the back plank by
putting a thin strip on top of the
| cloth and nailing it to the plank. Be
fore putting cloth down on plank, .:ut
a few pieces of good string and lay
them across the top of the plank, so
when you roll the cloth back to sun
the plants, etc., you can tie it into
these strings to keep the wind from
flapping it back over the frame. Ge:
some brads or eyelets like those on
stormcloth of a buggy and brad them
in lower edge of the cloth so that
one comes between each strip across
the frame. Get some good copper
spool wire and tie a piece about 6 or
8 inches long in each of the eyelets
and drive a nail about the middle of
the plank where each wire comes,
and when you desire to close the
frame, draw the cloth down and wrap
the wire around the nail two or three
times. Sow seed in this frame in
rows across the bed 8 in. apart. One
pound of seed ought to be sufficient.
This should be done between the
10th and 15th of November. Have
ground raked thoroughly, then use a
square stick long enough to reach
across the bed and rub one corner
in the ground to make the drill
about % in. deep. 0Sow the seed and
level the ground with the stick. The
plants must be tempered to the cold
from the very beginning so as not to
let them get too spindling; work
them with small hand tools all along
the winter. They should remain in
the frame until the middle of Janu
ary, then they are ready to go in
the open field. (Use same cold
frames for tomato plants which are
brought up in hot-bed 1st of Janpi
A cold frame of above dimensions
will give plants enough to set three
acres of ground at 3 feet in drill on
4 ft. rows, or 3,500 to the acre, o
if you desire more plants, double
cold frame capacity.
To operate cold frames for cabbage,
have open all you can. When changes
first appear there is usually warm
rain. Let enough of this fall on the
plants to' moisten the plants and the
ground and then draw the cloth and
.fasten it down until the first sun
shine appears, then open frame. Nev
er let sun shine very long on cloth
when closed for it will soon cause
"damp" among the plants and they
will all rot off at the ground. After
you have had one or two white
frosts the third night, if there is
light frost, leave frame open and
temper the plants to the cold and the
older they get the more you expose
them until they are ready to go to
One of these frames will cost be
tween $12 and $15, and is good for
five years. S. L. RIGGS.

The Love Letters of a
We begin in the November issue
a series of real love-letters written
over fifty years ago by one of our
national heroes to his sweetheart dur
ing the period of '61 to '65. This
great general will go down to posteri
ty as having accomplished one of the
most brilliant feats of arms in the
history of the world. He was as
great a lover as he was a general,
therefore these letters combine au
thentic history and exquisite ro.
mance. They sound a human note
that no other work of literature has
done in a decade; it is war, it is ro
mance, it is history, it is literature.
You simply can't afford to miss this
wonderful series-an inside story of
the Civil War now published for the

freshness of a contemporary happen
