TOWNELECTION HOTEST EVER PULLED OFF Almost Entire Possible Vote Was Polled and Each Side Worked Hard. Mackie Received Congratu lations from Opponents and Friends. Last Tuesday's election was one' of the hardest fought that has oc curred in a number of years. Out of a possible 319 votes 309 were polled, Mackie winning by a majori ty of one vote. TThere were two spoilt ballots, in which the word al derman was stricken out above the names, intsead of the name not vot ed for being crossed out. The vote stood: 'Mackie, 154; Anderson, 153.

AN ANSWER TO O. L. D. PHAR MER'S LETTER Farm Demonstrator Lewis Tells What an Experi ment Farm Is. Explains the Difference Be tween That and a Dem onstration Farm. Editor St. Tammany Farmer: Dear Sir:-To show the absence of understanding of some people in this -parish of the demonstration work as carried on in Louisiana and in other Southern States, I am giving you for publicatiion the letter handed me by you some few days ago. The writer of this letter does not sign his name and this letter ordinarily should not be published, but for good reasons I want it published in full, which is as follows: St. Tammany Parish, Sept. 1, 1916.

The dinner was not only delightfully pre pared, byt the surroundings of the bungalow dining room. the conveni ence of its appointments and the 4iar mony of the general arrangements and architecturaZ designs, in keeping with the local resources of nature in timber and other products, made the meal a wonderful example of how the ingenuity of pnan may bring the luxu ries of civilization and culture to the home on the farm as well as into the mansion of the metropolis. -And then the studious attention to service made it impossible that guests should mi s being served with any of the delightful things that were so boun tifully spread upon the table. W'hile the Houltons are bachelors, their bungalows are a perfect dream of comfort and orderly arrangement, being in charge of a housekeeper who knows how to handle all the -little details that make up the whole of comfort and order and food appear ance. A notable part of the bunga low is the sitting room. It is finish ed in stained pine, ceiling and walls being paneled, each panel bearing some trite inscription cut into the wood.
