Great Interest Being Taken
In Its Success by People
of St. Tammany.
Other Merchants to be Asked
to Join in Movement to
Send Farmers There.
iRealizing the importance of de;
veloping the agricultural resources
of St. Tammany parish and knowing
that such an exhibition as wil. be
made and the Farm and Stock Showr
in New Orleans will greatly help in
this movement' and be a lesson of
great importance to the farmers, Mr.
J. S. Jones, of Jones & Pickett, of
fers the suggestion that every mer
chant of Covington should Join in a
movement to send the farmers of
this 'parish to the show. He says he
will give ten farmers who are a cus
tomer of his store tickets. If other
merchants follow his example there
will be quite a number from this
parish who will attend. The Farm
er offers its columns to those mer
chants who desire to co-operate in
this matter.
On page six will be iound an ad.
vertisement of the National Parm &
Live Stock Show. 'This is not ordi
nary advertising. It has behind it
the interests of every cItizen of Lou
iigna, because it is a booster of the
great. agricultural and live stock in
terests upon which the prosperity of
'Louisiana depends. It will be a les
son lull of informatiion for the farm
er and stock raiser. Aside from its
educational features, it will be ful1
of a nusement for the pleasure seek
er and wonders for the investigator.
