possible. All feel confidtit that
with favorable weather condition
that a good crop of cotton can be
raised iu this parish. Bqt, of

be planted on as large a scale as
before the coming of the weevil,
but every planter can plant a few

s few acres of cotton, and we feel
satiefied that the resolt will prove
entirely satisfactory and make the I
farmer as prosperous and inde
