BIG LEVEE CONVENTION
TO BE HELD IN NEW ORLEANS ON
TUESDAY, OCTOBER 27.
Questions of Incalculable Interest to
the People of the Whole Nation
Will Be Discussed.
On October 27th will be held in New
Orleans the convention of the Inter
state Mississippi River Improvement
and Levee Association, and at the ses
sions to be held then many prominent
men will advocate government control
of the Mississippi levees, in order that
the vaat tracts some 20,000,000 acres
of now useless swamp lands in the
States of Mississippi, Louisiana and
Arkansas may be reclaimed and
brought into cultivation. It will be
argued that State and private control
of the levees will never result in the
reclamation of this vast and rich ter
ritory, for the reason that the neces
sary funds are not and cannot ue avail
able for many years to come; that
within a decade or so the world will
require twice as much cotton as it does
today: that the cotton fields of the
South are now producing practically
all the cotton they can be made to
grow; that this now useless territory,
which is about three times as large a3
Holland, and as rich as the valley of the
Nile, is America's only hope to con
tinue supplying the world with all the
cotton it requires; that the question of
government control is purely national,
because every State in the Union will
be benefited either In the sale of the
new crop or the sale of supplies and
manufactured articles to the new popu
lation ; that the State revenue, now go
ing into levees, should be turned into
educational channels, where it is badly
It will also be shown that wherever
the government has taken charge of
the Mississippi levees absolute luccess
has followed; government levees do
not break. The State levee boards
will not be criticised for the reason
that, considering the difficulties they
encounter, their work has been all that
any reasonable mind could expect.
Delegates to the convention are ex
pected from at least thirty States and
Territories. The railrorads have grant
ed one-fare rates for the round trip.
Special invitations have been sent to
many prominent men, and many of
these, warm advocates of the plans
and purposes of the levee association,
have advised the committee that they
will attend. Elaborate plans for the
entertainment of all delegates are now
being perfected. These plans of en
tertainment will include trips to sev
eral of the large sugar and cotton plan
tations, inspection of levees, etc.
INTERESTS AT STAKE.
They Reach From Pittsburg to Mon
tana, From Bismarck to the Gulf.
The Washington Post, which is al
ways well informed concerning South
ern matters, as it is about the country
generally, in speaking about the big
levee convention, has this to say:
"Great-interest attaches to the forth
coming levee convention, which is to
assemble at New Orleans October 27,
1903. That interest is felt in nineteen
of our greatest States. The immense
territory drained by the Mississippi
river and its tributaries among which
we may mention the Missouri, the
Ohio, the Red, Arkansas, Tennessee,
Cumberland, Wabash and Yellowstone
is as large as Europe. Its population
is numbered by the tens of millions;
its resources are almost incalculable";
its possible development beggars de
scription. Yet all this gigantic region
and most of its inhabitants are inti
mately concerned in the navigation of
the Mississippi. Industries too vast for
computation are affected. Financial
considerations which can hardly be
expressed in figures touch the question
of inland water transportation from
the agricultural, mining and manufac
turing districts to the sea.
"It is not true, as so many good peo
ple in this part of the country too has
tily assume, that a levee convention at
New Orleans or elsewhere represents
nothing more than the comparatively
insignificant interests of a few cotton
and sugar planters in Louisiana, Mis
sissippi and Arkansas. The fact is
that the navigation of the Mississippi
river and its innumerable affluents is
serious factor in the prosperity of
nineteen rich and growing States.
Throughout this prodigious area, the
dominating question is that of the es
tablishment and the permanent main
tenance of cheap water transportation
for its products. To the extent to
which this communication can be es
tablished and maintained, the farmers,
manufacturers and miners will be
profited. Every penny saved in the
cost of transportation is a penny left
in the pockets of the producer. And
that constitutes a problem in arithme
tic before which the most vivid imagi
nation must surrender.
"The levees? In a word, they make
the question of overshadowing import
ance at this time. Science assures us
that by confining the current, holding
it inexorably within certain fixed lim
its, and compelling the entire volume
of water to travel to the sea by a pre
scribed path, we can best deepen the
channel and secure unrestricted and
safe navigation at all seasons of the
year. There have been controversies
and counter claims without number,
but the weight of authority is with the
embankment theory, and the teachings
of experience sustain it. Most of our
leading engineers, civil and military,
congressional committees time and
time again, have declared that a levee
system affords the most effective
agency of permanent and profitable
navigation in our great silt-bearing
streams. No other plan has given
satisfaction. In no other expedient
has a rational or substantial promise
"It is to consider the question of
securing a levee system, therefore, that
the New Orleans convention of the
27th instant, has ben arranged. The
interests at stake reach from Pittsburg
to Montana from Bismarck to the
To which the New Orleans Picayune
"It would be difficcult to state the
situation more Intelligently or more
forcibly than it is lone in the editorial
from the Washington Post, printed
above. Too many people take up
the narrow and ignorant notion that
the levees along the Mississippi river
are only of local and private interest,
when, on the contrary, they are of na
tional importance. This is not only
true from the standpoint of industry
and commerce, but it is so from the
fact that the Mississippi river was the
chief factor in inducing the purchase
by the United States of the territory
of Louisiana, and it was just as import
ant an instrumentality in saving the
Union as it was in extending its limits
and enlarging its boundaries.
"When the independence of the thir
teen English colonies which formed
the original union of the American
States bad been acknowledged by
Great Britain In 1783. tn territory ol
the new nationality extended east and
west from the Atlantic ocean to the
Mississippi river, and from the great
lakes oh the north to the Spanish and
r rench dominions on iae south. The
people of the United States owned only
one-half of the Mississippi river from
its source, in what is now Minnesota,
to where it entered the French prov-
Ince of Louisiana, but while they pos-
sessed the right to navigate this vast
interior waterway through the greatest
part of its length, they could not reach
its outlet into the Gulf of Mexico ex
cept by passing through foreign terri
"It was at once seen that the people
of the western portion of United States
territory were placed at a most griev
ous disadvantage in having their com
merce on the river at the mercy of a
foreign country. President Jefferson
must have been extremely anxious to
secure for his countrymen a right to
the free use of the Mississippi river
from its source to the sea
"Of all national questions besetting
the statesmen of that day the control
of the mouth of the Mississippi was the
most pressing. At first it was sought
to secure by treaty the right to navi
gate the mouth of the river, but finally
it was seen that the desired result
could only be consummated by the
purchase of territory, and it was first
proposed to secure only a limited area
around the mouth of the river.
"The negotiations, however, which
were started on that basis were en
larged until when the treaty of cession
was concluded it embraced the whole
of the French possessions in North
America. This accession to the do
main of the United States was in im
portance beyond all computation, and
as a factor in the development of the
great republic, it is beyond all limita
tion, and it passes the bounds of the
conception of the most brilliant and
"But if the Mississippi river forced
the American people to seek and se
cure control of it throughout its entire
extent, it also enabled the United
States in the civil war to prevent the
secession of the Southern States and
thereby save the Union. If the great
river had flowed from west to east, fol
lowing the course of the Missouri, tho
Ohio and the Potomac, it Is easily seen
that it would furnish a most formi-1
able obstacle to the Northern invaders,
while it would have left the Southern
people a united country from the
Rocky mountains to the Atlantic ocean
But unfortunately for the Confederates,
it cut their country in half and en
abled the Federal gunboats to come
down from the North, and the Federal
naval Leets to come up from the sea,
and so sever the Confederacy into two
sections that were so completely dis
connected that communication between
the two was rendered extremely diffi
cult "The Mississippi river is an inland
sea that perpetually guarantees the
solidarity of the Union as far as the
northern and southern sections of the
country are concerned, although it
would facilitate a division into east
and west sections.
"EnouglTnas been said to show that
from every point of view, whether prac
tical or sentimental, the Mississippi
river is a great national interest, from
which no part of the country can sepa
rate itself. Its floods, as well as its
navigability as a great highway of
commerce, profoundly concern the en
tire population of the United States,
and therefore the New Orleans conven
tion merits the fullest consideration
from the people of every State in the
RECEIVING WARM SUPPORT.
Press of Country Trying to Make It the
Largest Convention Ever Held.
The coming levee convention, to be
held in New Orleans October 27,. is
receiving the warmest support from
the press of the country, and if the
press can do so, it will make the con
vention one of the largest ever held.
The Baltimore Manufacturers' Rec
ord, which has given so much atten
tion to Southen matters, calls for an
earnest support to the convention, and
quoting from Gov. Heard's address
recognizes and acknowledges the re
sponsibility of the Federal govern
ment in the matter.
"The Mississippi river," it notes, "is
above al lother rivers in the country
a national highway to the sea and to
the world's markets, with its impor
tance in this respect to be increased
by the construction of an isthmian
canal," and it sees that the advance
made in the protection of the alluvial
lands of the Mississippi valley by
means of levees has been accompanied
by increased crops, increased railroad
facilities, increased .population and in
creased business and industries. In
habitants of these alluvial sections
have for ten years or more been tax
ing themselves heavily for the con
struction and maintenance of a strong
line of levees on both sides of the
river, and the work has reached a
point where those best acquainted
with all conditions are thoroughly con
vinecd that even with appropriations
made from time to time by congress
the proper work is beyond the menas
of the people, communities and the
States immediately affected. They
therefore rightly take the ground that
the national government is best quali
fied to assume charge of the construc
tion and maintenance of the levees.
After reviewing the many arguments
In favor of the construction of levees
by the Federal government, the Rec

SHEEP AND FERTILITY.
With Oriac Assistance Flan-Down
Farms Cam Be Restored to Hlffh
State of Productiveness. .
A good flock of sheep will do any land
good and is the best of property for a
run down farm. A Michigan authority
on sheep says: "Land that could not
be cropped profitably, owing to wheat
raising, is now yielding larger crops
than when it was virgin soil. Great
opportunities have been presented in
building up these run-down farms,
which could be purchased for half what
they proved to be worth when restored.
Michigan soil recuperates rapidly when
given an opportunity. My land is worth
double what I paid for it seven years
ago. I ripped up some clover sod and
planted it In corn June 27 last The
crop yielded 100 bushels of grain. An
other field yielded 125 bushels of ear
corn. Yet all this land was so badly
run down a few years ago that it would
not raise enough to justify planting it.
These run-down wheat lands, when built
up. grow as good corn as I ever saw, in
Iowa or Illinois; in fact, It is the best
corn land, owing to its warmth In early
spring. The Michigan feeder has twa
sources of profit, one from the gain of
his stock and another by the addition
of the fertility to his farm, which, in the
course of a few years, doubles its value.
All these opportunities are not gone,
by any means. Plenty of run-down
farms are yet to be had, and the task
of building them up Is by no means
formidable, with ovine assistance. In
five to seven years values may be
doubled and feeding operations are
bound to pay during that period, ad

We use it for a bridle, a halter, and
to ring hogs with. In using it for a
bridle or halter, we approach the horse
on the left hand and take the ring in

the horse's mouth for a bridle and
around the nose at d in Fig. 2, for hal
ter. As a bridle it is one of the nicest
things to teach a colt to lead. The
operation is always to pull the colt
sidewise so as to be sure to move him.
In pulling on the rope it pulls to some
extent through the colt's mouth and
cuts and hurts, and the instant the
rope is loosened it quits hurting, and
we do not have to make very many
side pulls until the colt will follow you
at your command. As a halter it can
be used for horse, cow, calf, sheep,
etc. It is very handy to carry; can be
put in the pocket. It comes in good
use to get the horses out of the pasture
in the morning. We can make a halter
with each ring and lead two horses.
The halter will fit any kind and sized
It is just the thing to ring an old
sow with. Loop it around the upper
jaw and tie her to a post or fence, as
in Fig. 3, and she will just stand and
pull back her best, and squeal, and
hold perfectly still for one to put the
ring in, or fill her nose full for that
matter. It is easy to get it off of the
nose, for as soon as the rope is untied
and let loose the sow can thiow it off,
for It will not stick on account of the
ring. It is also the same way with the
horse. As soon as the loop is taken out
of the mouth or from over the nose,
by holding to the rope it will unfasten
itself, the loop running through the
ring. It is the handiest cheap thing
we have on the farm. A. S. Forsman,

Dear Mrs. Pinkham : There are but few -wives and mothers -who
have not at times endured agonies and such pain as only women know.
I wish such women knew the value of Iydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable
Compound. It is a remarkable medicine, different in action from any
I ever knew and thoroughly reliable.
"I have seen cases where women doctored for years without perma
nent benefit, who were cured in less than three months after taking your
Vegetable Compound, while others who were chronic and incurabte
came out cured, happy, and in perfect health after a thorough treatment
with this medicine. I have never used it myself without gaining great
benefit. A few doses restores my strength and appetite, and tones up
the entire system. Your medicine has been tried and found true, hence
I fully endorse it." Mrs. JL A. Anderson, 225 Washington St., Jack
Sirs. Reed, 2425 E. Cumberland St., Philadelphia, Pa., says :
When women are troubled with irregular or painful menstruation, weak
ness, leucorrhoea, displacement or ulceration of the womb, that bearing-down
feeling-, inflammation of the ovaries, backache, flatulence, g-eneral debility,
indigestion, and nervous prostration, they should remember there is one tried
and true remedy. Liydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound at onco
removes such troubles.
The experience and testimony of some of the most noted
women of America go to prove, beyond a- question, that Liydia E.
Pinkham's Vegetable Compound will correct all such trouble at
once by removing the cause and restoring the organs to a healthy
and normal condition. If in doubt, write Mrs. Pink ham at L-ynn,
