MASON, Editor COVINGTON, LA., SATURDAY, DECEMBER 18, 1920. 1 VOL. 47 No. 5 WHAT LAUNDRY ACCOMPI HSFS IN PROGRESS OF TOWN Need of a Good Laundry I. Many Times Experienc ed By Covington. GOOD WORK BY HOMIE "UONCERN Warrenton Luiri One for a~ Investrlent for the Community. Rece.itly we spoke ed torially : W:arrienlton, a t' i o .NoI N;r ; a liai; that was so progres ive and prosperous as to attract the attrn tion of the pre.s. It has a popula tion of less than one thousand, yet it had undertaken :everal projects of importance in the way of pub:ic improvement, one being a $120,000 hotel. It also had under way a :aundry. Hlow many people have ever :.topped to cons der just what a ]aun dry is eorth to a community? War renton considered it so worth while that the town is building it. In truth, a laundry means a great deal to a town, especially to a town like Covington, depending largely upon visitors and tourists. When visitor3 come to a town they do not know where to find the wash-woman and tpey do not care much about en trusting valuable clothing to strang err, nLr do they care to risk having the clothes badly done, when perhaps tJCty will not have time to have them done over. In fact, a good public !aundry jmeans service. A town that cannot give eervice mu't suffer, for people traveling will criticise it. It builds reputation largely through the traveling public. " Covington has felt the need of a :aundry, Even residents haye sent their clothes to New Orleans and other places to have them laundered. Yet with all this experience, it is said that the new laundry established in Cpvington is not getting the support it *Jaould have. It is said to be do Jng ~.ellent work and good service, $en by all means the town should Pe4 interertel enough to see that no work goes a.way from here that can be done .at osome. We have a lua~.d y built, equipped and in operation. lj1t would be like a gift to such a town as WVarrenton :aed would save it the cost of putting Ja one. WAKE UP, Covirgton; lsauke gpital of your laundry. It it as ilvestm~ent that pays the town. It e.couýrages visitors to spend money here ~n4d to stay longer.

TAMMANY CITIZEN TELLS OF THINGS ABROAD Agriculture Is Middle Name For Territory Around Buenos Aires. TRIP PROVES A STORMY ONE Paris Fashions and $20,000 Diamonds for the Women. Buenos Aires, Nov. 6, 1920. Editor St. Tammany Farmer: Just finished with a small sized hurricane. It has been blowing anu raning for three days and the end is not yet. Reports are coming in from all parts of damage to crops, fruit trees torn up, floods, etc., so these people have their troubles also. -ach wind and weather as we have had has never been known here. The spring is well advanced and it should ''e warm. Temperature 56 degrees. Glad we were in dock. Buenos Aires has altered so that I do not recognize it. The low places filled in and fine warehouses and docks .built where formerly the river ran. Many additional fine buildings have been put up aid every sign of prosperity is in evidence on every side, and to think of it-it all comes out of the ground. Agriculture is the middle name for this place, and one realizes it more when he meets steamer after steamer sailing with full cargoes of grain, frozen meat, hides, bones, live stock, all bound to some European port, Few at pres ent going to the States, Car fares, 5 cents; beer, 5 cents a splendid meal, 75e to $1, Cloth .ng is about the same; shoes much cheaper. Vegetab:es almost given away. We brought up 250 tones c. oananas from Santos and they are still on board. We had a car loa.l of pineapples, but they took them off. I lid hope that we would return via Sants with coffee to New Or leans, but apotper of our steamers will be on the log4ging berth at the same time. The mariet is lull, the States not buying, as p s we carry 100,000 bags each, there was pot enough to go around. We are to load corn for arclaloa Stain, 6,600 tons, and some 101 horses on deck, ca:ling at Rio de Janeiro to get our fuel oil. The. have prize sheep and rams displayed in the store windows, such monster:. principally Lincolns. I send you a" picture of one-some wool. I wish we had a few like them in St. Tam many prif.sb. If our boys could only see the results optained here through keeping nothing'hut high grade cay tie, they would go out into the wood, and drive to the butcher every otld scrub bull in the parish. Nothin., Jut the best goes here. Shorthorn seem to be the favorite catt:e, bu: tihey have all llreeds, The average horse here is much heavier than our's-s-eek, wel fed it is a pleasure to watch them. Al falfa is king here. The streets are asphalt, and some wood. Clean and constantly swept. Stores are a dream. We do not Know how to derss windows in com parison, One curious thin--red seems to ue the prevailing color Paris fash :ons rule, and believe me, if a ~dnhme wikhes to be in the swim, sonlmebod\ has to dig. l)iamond earrings a; $20,000. Furs, silks, disp:ayed so that no ole woul. want anything cheap. There are a great many Amerc;ai steamers here and in Rio they swar:m .ike bees. The government has put an embargo on the export of wheat to Brazil and we are shipping large quantities to Brazil from New Or leans. We shall probably spend our Xmas in Barcelona. My bhat wishes for a i;appy and Prosperous Xmtns an,~d New Year to all. Kindest regards. Yours truly, G. E, MILLAR. AN OPEN LETTER. Covington, La., Dec. 15, 1920. Editor St. Tammany Farmer: I shall ask you to kind:y publish this letter in the issue of your paper of Satlmrday. Dec. 18th. Since the last presidential election in Novemnoer, cousiderahle gossip about town would have it that I would be Covington's next Dost master. A number of my friends ap proached me, inquiring if this -un or was true. 1 emphatically toltl them NO; I was not seeking the of'tce If it was tendered me I would noi accept it under any circumstances. Being a Democrat and so register ed as one, I canuot understand why any person or petsons shoulli start such a rumor. Respeaful:y yours, A. J. FINNI.Y. TAKEN IO JACKSON.

PRESIDENT USES CHRISTMAS SEALS DO YOU? ....... i ::; ::: ;: :.?i : i. ;, , There Is one kind of Christmas seals that will never go out of style. That is the Red Cross seal -all returns on which go to the Anti-Tuberculosis League. Little Adrian Mayer is shown here de livering the big package of stamps to Secretary Tumulty at * Ithe White House, and to be used Saei wby president and Mrs. Wilson on Srw9 .their Christmas packages. HUCKABY WILL NATURALLY BE IN CHARGE OF HIGHWAYS It is not thought thtar Mr. luie will put St. Tanmmany par.sh o any unnece.;sary expense in the buildai; of roads in which federal aid is giv en. Evidently it would be unnec-, sary to have other engineers on tilhe ground, as Mr. lluckaby is thorough ly qualified to carry out al. such work. The following letter from Mr. Buie seems to be plain on that point: New Orleans, Feb. 18, 1920. Mr. A. D. Schwartz, Attorney, Good Reoals !Committee, Parish of St. Tamniany, Cqviqgton, La. Dear Sir:--lp Cofinettiop with road construction in St. Tanmmany pari ;h. In the event sat:sfactory arrange ments can be made between tine Highway Department, the Bureau of Public Roads and your parish, beg to advise: Mr. M. C. Huckaby, your parish en gineer, is well and favorably know;i to this Department, and it will !a agreeable to us to have him act in the capacity of Resident Engineer, in charge of road construction upon whch Federal and State funds are applied, it, of course, being under stood and agreed that Mr. Huckaby will conform to the Irles and regu :ations now in vogue, that is, iubmit daily 'reports on progress of work, and comply strictly with the plans and specitications involving construc tion, where same have not been changed by agreement between the contracting parties, which in this case is between the United States Government, through the Bureau of Piibilic Roads, the State of Louisi gta, through the Highway Depart menrit, alnd the Parish of St. Tam many, through thq Police Jury of St. Tammany Parish. Yours very truly, DUNCAN Bt'IE, State Highway Engineer. -4------- ('Hit ISTMA1A ENTE1TAINMIENT AT ST.

INTERSTATE WHOLESALE GROCERS The Interstate Wholesale Grocers is growing into one of the biggest concerns in the country of the kind. It has had a remarkable and rapidly progressive career under the man agement of Mr. E. J. Domergue.

They are the Duport Wholesale Grocery Co,, Houma, La.. and the Percy Iobdell Company, Thibodeipx and Lookport. A new charter is being drawn and provision is being made for an extension to several millions of dollars. It is said that more stock will be issuei on the new capitalization. The sub stantial character of this concern and the dividends declared bye it have made the stock popular and it wil. protably be sold with the rapidity that has characterized the sale of stock in each extension of'its busi ness.

"The country town is a part of the country, It is one of the encourag ing signs of the times that country town men are coming to realize this v fact. It has not been so long ago m that every little town thought that TI its business was to grow into a city ta just as soon as po~sible. Some towns Of and many town peop!e still think so. fr Many small town people, too, still PC think that their chief relation and in interests are with the cities rather than the country. The most farsee- W ing business men have come to know th Ibetter. They are seeing more and th more clearly that the town, the small pr city, is an integral part of the coun try, that it prospgra only as the country prospers, and that it has its place in the scheme of things to bu the life center of thq country about it. The town mn8gcant who oppos- di es co-operativ Bhuying or selling by th the farmer. et his territory, the town s banker who would hinder the estab- ur Ishme~at of farm loan associations in VC his parish, the town editor who neg- In lects the interest of the back-coun- th try districts, are Becaming more and In more out of date..

The cold weather is setting in, and it is time to see that the out-of door livestock are provided with shelter.. This is not only a question a of humanity but of economy as well, as it takes feed to produce animal heat within the body, and if it is al lowed to leave the body for want of shelter to keep it in, it simply calls in for more feed which might be eco- da nomized by proper shelter for the :ic stock. -Dr. W.
