CALCASIEU-LOUISIANA FAIR H
LAKE CHARLES, OCT. 26-29
Until within a few years, the agricul. W
tural motto of Southwest Louisiana
seemed to be, "It can't be done," "you
can't raise corn here," the old timer
would say, "the heat will burn it up. ar
You can't raise oats; winters are wet. m
You can't raise anything but scrub cat. th
tie; ticks or' Texas lever will get them. D
You can't raise good breds of hogs; just C
stick to the razorbacks. You can't raise CQ
good horses: they will die on your
hands," And so on. th
Progressive farmers, demonstration Ba
agents, silos and other agencies have st
changed this to the "Land where it can w
be done." How great the progress in m
this line has been will be shown at the et
Calcasieu-Louisiana Fair at Lake ar
Charles Oct. 26th to 29th. Premiums ag. sl
gregating two thousand dollars are of
fered for exhibits of improved breeds of p1
live stock: a hundred premiums are of- dE
fered for corn and oats and corn pro- t
ducts, all to be the products of south- w
west Louisiana. And make no mistake, di
they will all be taken. The farmers of tl
southwest Louisiana are replacing in
their range cattle, 'Cajan ponies and tr
razorbacks with standard bred stock, in
and are ready to compete with the l
world in corn and oats. bl
To the Louisiana larmer who seeks 01
to make more money the Calcasieu- rE
Louisiana Fair will be an education and lv
an inspiration. To the homeseeker it "
will be a convincing exhibit of what s]
Louisiana advancement of the farming
industry that has taken place, practic
I" ally under their nose without attract
Y ing their attention.
S This is but one phase of the many h
e features of the Calcasieu-Louisiana
i. Fair that *ill interest and delight all a

AN OBJECT LESSON
d Department of Agriculfure Cooperates I
d In Planning and Supervising I
The officials of Calcasieu Parish, La,
according to the Office of Information,
U. S, Dept. of Agriculture early in 1913,
asked the United States Department of e
Agriculture to cooperate with them in
laying out and developing a system of 8
parish highways, involving the im
provement of 142 miles of road to cost
$900,000. The Federal authorities, un
der their project "Superintendence.of
County Roads", supplied highway
engineers to assist in layjng out the
road map and to supervise the construc.
tion and repair of the roads to be im
proved.- The Department's object in
furnishing the expert supervision is to
demonstrate to county officials the ad
vantage accrueing from the supervision 1
of all county roads by some one person
skilled in highway construction and
maintenance, and the benefit from cen.
tralized control over all roads.
In this work the engineers determine
the best type of road for section and
also give especial attention to locating
new roads and choosing old roads for
improvement with relation to the
amoui of traffic, and the number of
I farms they will serve. The reduction of
the cost per ton mile for hauling is an
important factor. The engineers also
assist in preparing plans and specifica
tions for roads and for bridges and
culverts, and for proper drainage.
A model highway system was report
ed upon in October, 1913, and a bond is
sue amounting to $900,000 was aut
horized. By Jannuary 1, 1915, about 80
miles of road had been contracted for
and nearly 60 miles completed, The
total work contracted for amounts to
$597,458. Sixty-two miles of highway
still remained to be contracted for on
January 1, 1915. The work already
done, however, proved so successful
that steps have been taken to complete
the remaining roads and to raise $300,
00 additional to construct a bridge over
the Calcasieu River, and to extend the
highway system already approved for
The work done in this parish it is be
heved will serve as a successful object
lesson to other parishes, as in the work
the engineers had to deal with problems
of buildings roads through marshes and
providing drainage, as well as with
other road conditions ;similar to those
found in many other parishes of the
