HOULTONS ENTERTAIN PROGRESSIVE LEAGUE As Result of Conference Fe lix Bachemin Is Made Farm Demonstrator In spite of the bad weather pro gressive citizens and members of the Executive Board of the St. Tammany Parish Progressive League made the trip by auto to the Houlton farm at Uneedus, last Saturday. It took some nerve to make the trip, but the work they accomolished was a full reward. Also a close view of the wonderful accomplishment of the Houltons in the production of the Uneedus Farms. Stock and products stood out as a beckoning hand to the man woh wants to farm and un derstands his business. Also there was the dinner. 'Everything on the table produced on the farm-and a 30-pound turkey roasted brown. Who wouldn't take a chance with such a dinner as was served. There were present at the meet ing: Chas. and Wm. Houlton, Fritz Salmen, John Poitevent, Theo. Den dinger, Sr., E. J. Domergue, A. J. Johnsocn, E. G. Davis, T. D. Cush ing of the Great Southern 'Lumber Company, at Bogalusa, W. E. Mor riss and C. A. Everitt. While there was some discussion of the resources and opportunities of the parish, the principal business of the meeting was the selection of a farm demonstrator for St. Tammany parish who would be of benefit and bring results. It was desired to get the very best man who could be se cured. Felix Bachemin, Jr., was se lected. The salary paid.him will be the same as he was getting in Web ster parish, $3000. Of this amount the police jury will pay $1800, just what it has been paying for a farm demonstrator. The remainder o: the salary will be paid by the Pro gressive League. Dr. Perkins of the State Depart ment of Extension Work has con sented to release Mr. Bachemin, and it is learned that Mr. Bachemin has decided to accept the position. Mr. Bachemin has made quite a reputation, having been very succe3s ~1l in his work, and is in demand. We are fortunate in getting him. The Houltons are much interested in the effort of the League to bring St. Tammany to the front. It is hoped that the ultimate result of the League's work will be the settling up of the cut-over lands of St. Tam many parish. CARD OF THANKS.

CURTISS COMPANY FAVOR THE PLAN Site For Operating Planes Will Probably Be At Fair Grounds. The Curtiss Company have in view the establishment of a flying station in Covington. At the recent fair an aeroplane demonstration was given under great disadvantages, because there was not suitable ground for making landings and starting flights. This was due to the fact that the ground was fenced in and adjoining ground not prepared for this pur pose. The situation is fine and there is plenty of room by takiag in ad joining land. The Association of Commerce is now forming plans to have the Cur tiss Conrpany establish a station here and will provide the ground needed for it. It is understood that the plan has been favorably received. Airplanes are rapidly coming into commercial use and will soon be used largely in business and pleasure. An important part of the equipment of a company of this kind will be its stations, having the same relation as the depot has to the railroad. A station here now means that we will soon be using the air for freight and passenger service. No road bed to keep up nor right of way to ob tain. Just p l a i n sailing.' This sounds funny, but it is fast coming. -----0-- NOTICE TO THE PUBIdC. In view of the fact that reports have been circulated that the sale of soft drinks would carry a very heavy license, in some instances stated as high as $500, which would be pro hibitive to the small business man, and in the further consideration that such rumors are hurtful, unfounded and malicious, the following infor mation is deemed necessary: All licenses will be in conformity with the State law and could not be otherwise. The town council is just *as solicitious of the town's af fairs as any citizen can. be. It is just as appreciative of the fact that n'o burdens should be placed upon any business nor any strictures in flicted that can be avoided. In moat instances it is probabe that the license will not exceed $10. It will depend upon the amount of business that is done. The office of the town secretary is open from 9 a. m. till 4 p. m. He will gladly furnish you information on such matters if you will call on him. It will save you from misun derstandings and the effect of malicious reports. Respectfully, TOWN OOUNCIL OF COVINGTON, 'L. A. PERREAND, Secretary. -0 TACKY PARTY AND DANCE.

VILLERE GETS CONTRACT $47,986.50 The Bids on Bogue Chitto Swamp Bridge and Other Matters. Bids were received by the Good Roads Commission last Saturday on the Covington-Talisheek road for dressing up and graveling this road, which were opened at noon, and are as follows: Myers Construction Co., Hatties burg, Miss., $95,490.50. A. P. Boh & Co., New Orleans, L.a., $72,289.90. Harry L. Villere, New Orleans, La., $47,986.38. These bide were submitted to cover the shaping up, grading, bridge building, culverts, placing the gravel on the road and doing all the work necessary to complete the road for travel, with the parish furnishing the gravel at the railroad sidings. A. P. Boh submitted a bid propos ing to furnish all the gravel and do all the work necessary to complete the road for $131,001.50. The two. highest bids were rejected and the bid of Mr. Villere was retained and taken under advisement with the view of investigating the feasibility of awarding the contract to him. This investigation will be reported upon this Saturday (to-day) at whi:h time the contract will be awarded or rejected, depending on the findings of the investigation. It is estimated that at the present prices of material and freight rates that the material for this road would cost approximately $30,000. This would figure an average of about $5700 per mile for the road, includ ing everything. Bids on the bridges In Bogue Chitto swamp were received Friday and presented to the Commission on Saturday of last week, and were re jected. The bids were rejected to permit of a change in the plans and specifications which will anticipate new timber for both bridges and per mit the old bridge on Black bayou to remain in place as petitioned by the citizens of that community. BidA will be received for this work by the Commission on Saturday, Feb. 7. All the bridges and culverts on the Range Line load have been complet ed, but due to the rainy weather very little progress has been made in the way of grading. Work on the Turnpike road has been practically at a standstill and the contractors have filed applica tion for a sixty day extension on their time, on the ground that there is being so much rain that they can not do anything on the road in the way of grading. SPEAKERS BUSY PAVING THE WAY For the Big Drive of the Ameri can Cotton Ass'n. Next Week... The week of January 27th marks the intensive speaking dampaign in preparation for the supreme effort to enroll 40,000 members of the Louisiana Division of the American Cotton Asso elation, during the week of Feb. S. It ham been planned to send speakesi into every one of the cotton parishes, for one meeting at least, to drive home the great truths behind the movement.

The big event is going to be the drive during the following week, be. ginning February 2. Every parish oom pittee has prepared for this, by per fecting the ward organisations, so that every man who ha any interest in cotton, no matter how remotely, will be given an opportunity to take pat in the great realization of "Unity," which has been made the keynote of the Louisiana organisation. Forty thousand members at least should be enrolled during that week. Way of the parish chairmen are confident they will go over the quota. They are man. festing the true spirit of patriotism, ad after a preliminary survey of their fields have reported that they them selves were surprised at the receptiv. Ity of the people towards the move ment. All that is needed is the final personal appeal and a demonstration of the practical purposes behind the American Cotton Association, to make the campaign a success. The eyes of the rest of the South are on Louts ian, which has already done such splendid work in organization and prep aration, and President Wannamaker says that the work here is serving as a model for the work in some of the other states.
