FARMERS' MEET OF IMPORTANCE TO BE HELD IN FOUR TOWNS Shipment of Hogs In Car Lots To Be Discussed and Arranged. L. S. U. EXPLRTS WILL BE ON HAND Other Matters of Ir port ance To The Farmer To Be Taken Up. Probably the best farmers' meet ings ever held in this parish are planned for about a week from now, February 21 and 22. There will be a series of meetings held at different places. Some of the *best agricul tural leaders in the State will speak and demonstrate. The subjects ars vital and appropriate, especially f)r this year, this season of the year, and for St. Tammany parish. The program will be carried to the farmers in different sections of the parish for their convenience in at tending. Now, will the farmers fail to come, or coming to town will they stand on the corner or let any ordi nary business prevent their coming into the meeting on time? It is hoped they will come early and finish trading ;before the meeting, or fail ing to finish in time will -postpone business until after these most im portant discussions. Speakers, Subjects and I)emonstra tions. 1. Dr. W. R. Dodson, head of Farm Demonstration Work of Lou isiana, will discuss commercial fer tilizers. He will demonstrate home mixing of the straight ingredients of the fertilizers, proving economy of this method. 2. Mr. J. M.

Complaint was made to Mr. Willy by the father of Johnson that .Jule was beating the family up and creating a disturbance generally in tl'e house. Willy got his gun and in company with his son, who carried a Winchester, went to the Johnson house to investigate the trouble. Just as he approached the door Jule Johnson opened it slightly and fired coming out on the porch. The charge of No. 4 shot entered between the wrist and the elbow and shat tered the 'bone. Young Willy, see ing that has father was shot, fired at Johnsen and thought he had hit hinm, as the negro slipped to his hands and knees and then jumped up and ran. Willy then turned to assist his father. In the meantime Johnson disappeared and has not been cap t:t red. Mr. Willy's wounds were dressed by Dr. Bulloch, who had him sent to the hospital in New Orleans, realiz ing that the wound was a serious one. Th,'re the arm was amputated above the bow, it being too shatter er to save.. Dr. Bullock said that when he took Mr. Willy's coat off the shot, which had passed through the arm and into the sleeve, rattled out on the fio-. If Mr. Willy had not thrown his arm: in front for !protection he would have received the charge in his body and undoubtedly been ,killed. Mr. Willy has been one of the best deputies on Sheriff Brewster's force. He is a man of de:ermina tion and bravery and could be de pended upon. He had atrestea\Jule Johnson on a former occasion, when it was believed that Johnson had kill ed a negro woman found dead in her room. .Subsequently Johnson left here and was picked u.p in another n'ace and drafted into the army. He was considered to be a dangerous rchracter. 'but said by some to be half witted. Officers are watcbin' for him and it is expected that he may be captured at any time. 0 Mr. V. J. R'ouxt representing the Carpenter's Union, at Madisonville, was in Covington, Tuesday, and with a conImittee of the Association of Commerce made a collection from the merchants to help defray the expens es of the delegates to Washington in I tOfe 'nserest of shipbuilding at the Jahncke Shipyards: Mr. Roux w's oulte successful 41-0 met w'th cheer ful assurance o preciation of the work of the delbgates.

BAPTISTS SAY EXPECT BIG RESULTS The Baptist Bible Institute cam paign for $200,000 has been tnor oughly organized throughout the state and everywhere fine work is *being done in its prosecution. The campaign opened last Sunday in more than six hundred Baptist churches in Louisiana and it is fully expected that the appeal of this In stitute will be made to the more than 80,000 white Baptists during the next month. In many of the asso ciations of the state some of the strongest laymen are taking an active. part in presenting the campaig.r in the rural and village churches. These laymen go out in teams of two or more spetking in the church es *and assisting, in the individual canvass of the membership. Not a low note or a discouraging word has come from any section of the state. In many of the local districts the apportionments made from the office have been increased and it is prac tically assured that the $200,000 will be raised before March 9th. One oZ the leading denominational workers speaking about the organization in his territory said: "If the whole state could be thoroughly organized and 'the interest of this Institute could be :presented to all of our con stituency, we would raise more than a half million dollars in the State of Louisiana alone. " Dr. I. J. Van Ness, corresponding secretary of tle Baptist Sunday School Board, Nash ville, Tenn., writes. "That is a great campaign that you are putting on iun Louisiana in the interest of the Bap tist Bible Institute of New Orlean.. If you put it over, and of coures you will, it will be the most far reaching If you put it over, and of coures you will, it will be the most far reaching effort in our history for a genera tion." This is the view that the big denomiantional men take of the cam paign in this state for the Bible In stitute of New Orleans. Tihe succe~s of this campaign in Louicians will challenge the whoel South and I an ticipate the other states will take up the raising of their quota and of one half million dollars fo,: end owmeit within the next year. Good news comes regarding the beginning of the campaign in this section of the state and local manas ers are greatly encouraved. n, doubt. Every church covered by this paper is to be visited by a special speaker and a comple*e canvass of the entire Baptist constituency is to be made. There are many people of other chris tian faith who are recognizing the merits of this institution and will make contributions to the $200.000 campaign. ---- PROGRAM FOR NEXT FRTIDAY AND SATURDAY. Subjects. Commercial Fertilizers, Rice, Hog Shipments. Sheep Improvement. and Poultry. There will be discussions, demon strations and organization. Speakers. Five of the best in the State. from L. S. U.: Director Perkins, of Agri cultural Extension Work, and four specia'ists. Places ani Dates. Sun-l0 a. m., Feb. 21. Central-2 n. m., Feb. 21. Fo'som-10 a. m., Feb. 22.

THERE WILL BE NO EXTENSION OF TIME FOR INCOME TAX Editor St. Tammany Farmer: That there will 'be no general ex tension of time beyond March 15 for 'he filing of returns, and for the pay ment of Income and Excess Protits taxes due on that date, is the decision of Daniel C. Roper, Commissione, of Internal Revenue. The announce ment was made today - by Collector r Y. Fauntleroy, immediately fol lowing the approval ,by the Senate and House of the report of the con ferees on the new Revenue Bill. "It is necessary to get, the initial tax payments in 'by March 15th," c:ays Commissioner Roper. "No other course is possible. Some few months ago the Treasury issued cer :ificates of indebtedness 'to an amount approximating $800,000,000, matur ing March 15th.. The first payment of the Income and Excess Profitl Taxes for 1918 was planned for that date, to meet this huge obligation. "The American people have provelI that there is no emergency too great to be met asfd solved 'by co-operation. This 'present situation is another emergency which can be overcome by co-operative effort. The Bureau ex tends its every force toward this end, and I am relying upon the people to meet the situation wholeheartedly. "The Internal Revenue Bureau must carry out the program prescrib ed in the new law, which requires all returns for 1918 to 'be filled out on or before March 15, 1919, and requires quarterly payment or the entire amount to be made on or be fore that date. "Every taxpayer who can possiibly do so is urged to make full payment of his income tax on or before March 15th. The quarterly payment meth od is intended for taxpayers whose financing of the tax at one time would tend to upset local financial conditions. "The approval of the report of the conferees by the Senate and House of Representatives 'brings the new Revenue Bill to the point where it may 'be assumed to 'be law. The In ternal Revenue Bureau has been making preparations to collect the taxes which it 'provides, and is now putting all of its efforts into aiding the taxpayers to fulfill the obliga tions imposed. "The Bureau has arranged to send an advisory force of several thous ands of deputies and agents to assist taxpayers. These officers will be sta tioned at convenient points where they' may be consulted without charge. Taxpayers should take the initiative and get in touch With these revenue men for any needed advice and assistance in preparing returns. "The forms for the tax returns are being !printed and all forms will be in the hands of collectors between February 15 and March 1." - 0---O---- Former Parish Surveyor J. M Yates, of Folsom, was in Covington Wednesday in attendance on court. All his friends were glad to see him, as he does not often give them this pleasure. -0----·0 Judge and Mrs. J. D.

No doubt the readers of The St. Tammany Farmer read with interest and satisfaction of the recent suc cess of the Madisonville de:egation of ship workers who went to Phila delphia and Washington to place be fore the Emergency k'leet Corpora tion and officials in Washington the facts that warranced a continuance of the shipbuilding for the Govern ment at the Jahncke Ship Yards. They presented such a clear case of ettfficiency in this yard as to not only secure a completion of the contracts but to win the highest commendation for the workmen. This delegation was lieadetl by Samuel J. Allison. Who is Samuel J. Allison? With all the names of men who have done things during the war men who have sprung suddenly into public light and men who have al ways been publicly known-Mr. Alli son may not -come quickly to the minds of our home people, Ibut he is well known in sporting circlep. St. Tammany parish has a claim 6n him. Mandevillians should know him. Boys who attended the Catho lic College of the Brothers in 1882 will remember him with delightful reference to his work as an athlete. Later he became a professional ball player and helped the Detroits to win the pennant in 1887. 'He was a great base runner as well as a record long distance runner. And to cap his great achievements in athletics, he is one of our greatest long dis tance swimmers. He is in the twen iv mile rlann tance swimmers. He is in the twen ty mile class. But 'Mr. Allison's accomplishments are not limited to sports. He is a genuine worker, wherever you put him, and his work ,usually brings results. He is genial and whole souled and a friend who can be counted on. And also Mr. Allison is a fourth degree Knights of Colum bus and is a hustler in his lodge work, as he is elsewhere. Therefore we are glad to learn that Mr. Allison, although he was born in Orange, Texas, has come 'back to our parish, where his college days were spent and where he breathed tnce ozone that built up the strong body and deep lungs that made him 1 great athlete and gave him the sunny disposition that ties him to his friends and his friends to him. -0------ The funeral of Mrs. Herman Schultz and little John Valerie Coop er took place at 1 o'clock Sunday afternoon, Rev. Miller officiating at both at the Schultz residence and at the Sunny Brook 'burial grounds where interment was mad.e. Chris. Schultz, who was called from Brooklyn, from the Navy,, reached here in time for the funeral. MEDICAL SOCIETY HOLDS 4E.S SION WEDNESDAY. The St. Tammany Parish Medical Society met in regular session last Wednecsday at the Southern Hotel in Covington with the following mem bers present: Doctors R. B. Paine, N. M. Hebert, J. C. Denman, H. D. Bulloch, H. E. Gautreaux, C. W. Davidson and A. G. Maylie. This rbeing the annual meeting, scientific papers and discussions were dispensed with, the time being de voted to reports of officers and com mittees and to election of the 191.9 officers, which resulted as fol:ows: Rr. R. B. Paine, president; Dr. N. "M. Hebert, vice-president; Dr. A. G. Maylie, secretary-treasurer; Dr. H. D. Bulloch, delegate to the Louisiana State Medical Society. The regular meeting day was changed from Wednesday to the sec ond Thursday of each month. The secretary-treasurer's report showed the society to be in flourish ing condition. The next meeting of the society will be held at Covington on Thurs day, .March 13, 1919, when the new officers will be installed, following which there will be a banquet lar ticipated in by the members and their iladies, complimentary to whom this Sfeast of comradship will be ten dered. ITEMS OF INTEREST AT JAHNCKE SHIPYARDS IN MADISONVILLE Items of interest to the shipbuilders and public in general will be published in this column each week, and those who have interesting news and local notes can forward same to the Editorial Department Jahncke Shipbuilding Corporation, and they will be handled by them. Notes should be in so as to be mailed every Wednesday, otherwise they will be held over until the next week. E. F. CADDIN, Editor-In-Chief. Hospital Notes. The week just closed has seen far too many accidents in the yard, too many based on former experience and from the description given by the in jured men, many of these accidents are avoidable. While we are glad to state that we have had to deal with no seriously crippling injuries lately, we have had many disabling and very painful wounds to contend with. When a work of this kind is just begnning, as was the case a year or more ago, it is expected that many men will hurt themselves' or their fellow workmen until all have be come more or less skilled, but when these same men have had more train ing, then we look for an improve ment in the handling of tools and other instruments of this trade and consequently a diminution in the number of injuires. At most of the large ship build ing plants a "Safety First Commit tee" has been organized among the men and steps have been taken to prevent accidents and the results ob tained have been most satisfactory. It goes without saying that the ntelligent and thrifty workman does not relish the thought of losir g al week's pay due to an injury both painful and crippling for the time. Employers' Liability Insurance commonly carried by all large con cerns does not under the laws of this State pay a man for his first week of injury except in such cases where the injury causes a total loss of time foc and exceeding six con secutive weeks, and this indemnity in no case exceeds a certain sum per week which is far lower than t.he average wages now being made. It is possible that the above in formation is not generally known by our men and it is here stated for the purpose of attracting their attention to the proposed campaign against avoldalble accidents. Sometimes it happens that the new man among a gang or crew is re sponsible for the accident happening, in other words he is not yet skillful epough with his tools, and in such instances it would be well for the leadman or foreman to keep an eye on the newcomer and coach and ad vise him until he Ibecomes accustom ed to his work and his gang, fq every crew has its peculiarities and the best intentions in the world are sometimes useless until a man has worked himself into the crew's ways of doing things. It is sincerely believed that many of our valuable men will in the future escape these painful "little accidents" and not be forced to lose good time if a little more thought and care is given to the risky parts of the job. Nuptials. Mr. Joseph E. Cuney, of Abbeville, La., and Miss Sadie Chatellier, *,f Madisonville, La., were united in the holy bonds of wedlock at Covingtoif, La., Feb. 11, 1919, Father John of the Catholic Church officiating. Miss Alice Brewster, the lovely daughter %of Sheriff T. E. Brewster, acted as 'bridesmaid, and the genial Moses Chatellier, the bride's brother. acted as (best man. The bride was dressed in a travel ing suit of oxford grey, which was exquisite in design and harmonions ly blended with the sweet personali ty of the ,bride. The bride and groom will spend their honeymoon at Abbeville, the home of the groom's mother. 'Mr. Cuney is a valued employee of the Jahncke Shipbuilding Co., and very highly thought of 'by his asso ciates. 'Ihe bride is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Victor Chatellier, who. have been life-long residents of Madi sonville. We extend hearty congratulaticos. and wish the bride and groom "bon voyage" through life. Madisonville has been enjoying the beautiful spring-like weather which has appeared earlier than was mxpected, but it will be joyously wel !omed as it will doubtless work mar vels in a change of thought and ac tion. The mental and social depres sion which characterized the winter season should disappear, and the last weeks of winter and the bealiful spring weeks yet to come, we feel confident, will find our lovely town more joyous than it was during the period of the war. Most of the young men that answered their coun try's call are being demdbilized, and are rapidly returning home. Their presence always gives zest to all social events and makes the giving of larger parties more successful. This week Misses Irene DeGruy, Vira Gainter and Inez Gainier were the guests of honor at one of the lbvliest supper parties of the season, when Mr. and Mrs. W. E. Lopez en tertained at their home, preparatory to the departure of their daughter and two nieces to New Orleans. The evening was one of Ipleasure and ffll ed with many surprises in the way of art and mirth. Miss Kathleen Aby rendered sev eral songs in such a capable voice that she fairly captivated her listen ers. Mr. John Davis, with his ex cellent voice and affecting manners, carried his audience back to "The Good Old Days." Mr. Frank DeGruy and Mr. J. J. Broders, two of Madi sonville's most popular young men, gave a. form of entertainment that would please the most' fastidious. Mr. DeGruy and Mr. Broders were the last number on the program but they easily demonstrated that as en tertainers they were par-excellence anti they contributed largely to mak ing the function the success that it was. Those present were Mr. and Mrs. W. E. ,Lopez, Misses Irene De Gruy, Vira Gainier, Inez Gainier, Es tella DeGruy, Agnes DeGruy, Kath leen Aby, Denia Chatellier, Messrs. Oscar Mongeau, Jr., (Sea Dady), L. A. Clark, T. P. Morgan, W. L. Mor gan, James Devanney, John Davis, Louis Stockfleth, Frank DeGruy, Geo. Perrin, J. E. Smith, Gus Dietrich, H. McDougall, J. J.

Gus Dietrich is now called Gloomy Gus, because the dance at Covington did not come off as 'scheduled. Gus is in his second babyhood. Why? Ask him about the kindergarten. Godfred Calecas has been disturb ing every one in the wing of the hotel where his suite of rooms are. ,No, it is not the vibrator, but his constantly practising the Chicago Shimmie. Godfred, don't stamp your feet so hard and shake your shoulders so much - that belongs to another dance. While the ipavilion dances are al ways succesful, they would be more so if Captain Carlson attended them more regularly. We always enjoy his dancing whether he is doing the Hill Billy Glide or the Pine Knot Waltz. We know a young man working in the yard office that is so strong for an empire or kingdom and the nobility that he even has Noble eyes. It must be so, for.g young lady wrote it to him and even signed her name to the letter. Well, well, Godfred took a young lady to the dance Wednesday. Now she is wearing his diamond ring. The day after the dance Godfred was reading the "furniture ads" in' the newspaper, when suddenly he ex claimed, "This is a swell -parlot set!" Here comes the bride. 'Here comes the bride. Oh, Stella! Did you see Bessie's new spring dress? It is a wonderful creation. The first thing you know she will be appropriating all the ad miration. And what are you going to do about it, Flossie? We have heard, of the Rock Road to Dublin, but we don't think it has anything on the Holy Road to Cov ington. When she walked out of the ship yard last Friday all dressed for' spring, she sure looked good. Why, she looked just like a sweet girl graduate. No, you don't have to guess her name-it's our nurse I am speaking about. We have connected with the Emergency Fleet Corpor tion a fas cinating and most lovable character. He perambulates around an!i arni,,d and, like a little honey bep. - ths-r his sweetness .from evw-v f----" flower. I observed him '"-' - '~13 while ago emitting his swse.les- in a most lavish manner upon a sweet, dainty bantam-like person in the vicinity of the Red Cross Hospital. To notice him only a few minutes makes one really envious. If I were (CoatlnuM oan 96 i.)
