A BIG THING. it
Although the present Demon-. .
stration Train is not the first one
that has been operated in the State
or in the United States, it is tle rim
biggest thing of its kind that wes
ever attempted in America. Af- str
ter it has finished its itinerary, it
will have been out for ten or ele
ven weeks; it will have visited
something like 200 places, and it th
will have covered the greater part
of the whole State of Louisian,. qu
Will it prove a success? That Be
depends. If the success should
depend entirely upon the splendid Be
efforts of those who have been at itil
the trouble of inaugurating this
great project, success is already tet
assured. But the ultimate sic- eta
cess of such a movement depends
upon the good that the people, ed
themselves, take out of it. du
Our Louisiana people should
feel a pride in this magnificent ho
attempt to make Louisiana a lead- Co
er in this great agricultural mis
sionary work, which is bound to
result in the ultimate betterment bo
of the State's conditions, agricul- K.
turally, educationally, from the
standpoint of the public health, thi
and in almost every other way tal
that concerns the uplift of our
rural population. Let the people bri
turn out in their thousands to give at
stimulus and encouragement to
this great educator - the Louisi
ana Demonstration Train, and its L.
occupants, who are doing so much Or
for their education and iustruo
tion, and thereby establish a re
cord that will be hard to equal by se*
any other State in the Union. bil
