SAM H. DIXON AS EDITOR.
WIll Conduct the Horticultural and
Agricultural Features of The Post.
Sam H. Dixon, state inspector of
orchards and nurseries, has taken the
editorship of the agricultural and hor
ticultural features of The Semi-Week
ly Post. These two departments have
been inaugurated in the semi-weekly
edition of The Post on a broader
scale than has ever been attempted be
fore by a newspaper of the South. In
fac't the Semi-weekly post will hereaft
er enbrace all of the features of an
up-to-date family newspaper, coIm
hined with those of a complete auri
cultural journal.
MIr. Dixon is known far and wide as
an authority on horticulture and as a t
writer, There is no man closer to the
farmers of Texas or more thorough in
knowledge of the farmer's needs or
better posted ,n advanced cultural <
methods.
Mr. Dixon's new work as editor of I
The Semi-Weekly Post and as state in- t
spector of orchards and Inurseries, a
having been recentlv appointed by a
Gov. Camplbell, gives him an enlarged h
field for rendering service to the agri
cultural interests of Texas. ii
The new departments of The Semi- a
Weekly Post will be devoted to the '
wellfare of every class of farmer in ti
Texas. There will be features for a
the fruit grower, the trucker, the nurs
eryman, the stockman and the nut
grower.
MIr. Dixon's new work will he!
watched with a great deal of interest 1
throughout the state. I
A Fortnnate Texan.
Mir. E. W. Goodloe, of 107 St. Louis
street, Dallas, Texas, says: "In the to
past year I have become acquainted at
with Dr. King's New Life Pills, and d(
no laxative I ever before tried so ef- th
fectually disposes of malaria and bil- G
lousness." They don't grind nor li'
gripe. 25 cents, at all druggists. b
Water Trips to Plants South of Welsh.
Alvin Buckingham, who owns a
neat little gasoline launch, and oper
and ates it on the bayou south of the
•* Arceneaux plant, conducted two ex
of cursion parties down to the Illinois
the and other plants south of town during
or- the recent high water. The first party
ek- consisting of L. E, Robinson, H, C'.
rve Butler, Jim Bowen, A. T. Jones, E.
klv M.. Powers. Wiln. B. Gabbert and
ier Mark t'rentice, went down Saturday,
be- visiting the Mayville, Southwestern,
In and Illinois plants during the trip.
Lft- They report the water being so high
an as to cover practically all the ground
in- except the ridges which run through
ri- that section of the country. The peo
ple at the Illinois plant were making
-s a desperate effort to save their pro
a tection levees, and were pumping day
he and night to keep the water out. The
in water on the outside was practically
or on a level with the levees, and any
.al considerable rise would have proved
disastrous. The water at some of the
of plants visited was up on the sides of
n- the boilers. It is impossible to state
s, at the present time anything definite
vy as to what the final oukt'ome of the
fd floods will be in that section.
"i. The second party which Mr. Buck
ingham conducted went down Tuesday
i. and was composed of eleven members.
e They rel)ort the water still rising at
inthe lower plants, although falling
r Iabove.

An Undesirable Law.
The Texas legislature has taken an
effective step toward inducing iunti
gration to that state by repealing the
privilege tax law. Meon don't like to
pay taxes on all they possess and
then pay another tax for the privilece
of earning a living. Such a law is a
disgrace to any state, and Louisiana
should follow the example of Texas.
