WILL PUT PARISH ON FEET SOLIDLY Undrained Lands Bring Di sease Into Stock. Drain age Pays For Self. (By A. E. Briggs) If by any chance,there should bt ." big oi. strike in this parish, thec course of consequent prosoer t) would be like that which happene.: in the timber industry-a few fever :sh years and all would be over. To strike oil would 'be luck. Possibly rome day a great deal of money will be spent here drilling for oil, but counting the losses and the gains to gether, offsetting the losers again:, the winners, there would be no grea. development of wealth even if some big gushers were brought in, and in any event the prosper:i~ would bc merely temporary. Of course, the oil speculator wouldn't ca/re about that, for that is what hq expects. But to drill for oil is nearly always a sheer gamble. In agricultural de velopment, on the contrary, we can be absolutely certain of profitable re turns here. Let .us sum up some ot these certainties. In the first place, reforestration has Sts best chance as a feature of ?armn development, in the farm tim berlot. A few acres, fenced in, ,pro tected from fires, and kept clean and vigorously growing by a thrifty farmer who has an interest in mak ing his poorer acres yield income along with the 'best of his farm, will provide fuel, fence posts, shelter and shade for Battle, and wood to sell for paper pulp or to the sawmi.l. Only the farmer will stop the fire: which destroy growing pines and other timber. It is the farmer who alone will take care to make a, carpert gras.. pasture, 'and this thrives only wher there is freedom -fron-l prairie` fire' and where sufficient stock are kept tP graze closely. Carpet grass will set itself here when given a chance, and on the general farm it is a fortune, the most valuable one thing on it. What is a general farm, and what Is the profit in it? It is one which 'n a measure combines every kind of farming: agriculture, horticul ture, and livestock raising. The cot ton farmer, wheat farmer, sugar plantation, poultry plant, dairy farm, cattle farm, any one-crop or one product farm goes under whenever "hard tis@s" copme. But the genera' farmer who feeds crops of his own making to his own cattle, who ra's es something to sell every month in the year, succeeds and makes money all the time, and is never panic stricken by the ups and downs of the market. Usually we do not think of truck crops as Ibelon.ing to or being a part of the general farm. Of course, the home garden and home orchard are a part of every good farm; and for that matter every residence 'tot ought to have its garden and fruit trees, tq supply the home table In this wo0d.rfti climate with the best fresh vegetables and fresh fruit every day in the year, 'But the local cannery makes truck growing a profitable source of income to the general farmer.. I quote the follow ing from a practical and experienced horticulturist, Prof. M. G. Kains, in '"Farm Knowledge": "The advantages of a cannery to a locality are- that it offers a ready market at a fair price for a number of perishable crops. It enables the farmers to grow cash crops, possibly :n small areas, but which neverthe less add materially to the farm in come. By careful arrangement of the acreage of different crops suited to a region, that region's income can be very greatly increased, In a fruit growing district they are of great service in conserving that which might be wasted, and they frequently offer a very profitable outlet for large quantities of fruit, thus en abling the gtowers to avoid glutting markets. The production of canning crops, since it more nearly approach es gardening, ~altses the tone of the agriculture.of a region.. * * * Car nery crops encourage the develop ment of new methods. . .. By products, such as peavines and corn cobs, are returned or sol0 back to the farmer for stock Peed. , Usually they are made into Jig stacks from which the farmers hail. 1oads dur ing the winter a they need them, each grower being &lloWed 1 1-4 tons of the 'silage' for each ace of peasb grown. Such an industry therefore encourages the raising of livestock and the practice of mixed farming; indeed the growing of sweet corn almost necessitates the keeping of livestock to eat up the stalks. * * * Again, growing crops for canneries involves co-operation.

The main object and aim of these community organizations are to hold monthly conferences or meetings, at which sessions the farmers discuss the problems and study their needs, plan ahead, -particularly regarding the marketing of their crops in large quantities, having better and cheaper means of ,transportation and reach ng the larger markets. Onward Community First To Organize. The Onward Community Farmers' Ate....-...... 49-- -- 41 - ;wn4 ---ii ., Drganization was the first community to study and realize .the absolute im portance and necessity of such an organization, and went into perma nent organization last Saturday, ac cepting a constitution and by-laws and agreeing to work under su' , knowing that lots of community work must be done and that if this is accompilished it will only be brought about 1by eyery farmer and person living in that eommu}ity be ing a booster to that cause and 'sticking by" until the end. Folsom, Waldheim and Pilgrim Rest are the other communities that will soon follow the foot-steps of the Onward community, and it will not be very long 'before every community or rural district will awake to the value of organ'zation in groups, to wards the ultimate aim of a County "arm Bureau in St. Tammany parish, and not until then will the farmers get the. protection and recognition that properly is due them.

A BIG THING FOR COVINGTON Two Hundred Autos Will Come Through Here In October. Mr. Jack C. Wilson, secretary of the Missi.;sippi Valley Highway As sociation, ta.ked to members of the Covington club of that Assocation at a meeting at the Southern Hotel last Monday evening. Mr. Wilson is not. only enthusiastic on good roads, but he is a talker who can put his en thusiasm into words that sank deep into your think tank and gave you convictions that will stir you to ac tion, if you are capable of action. Mr. Wilson's talk was convincing because it was practical. His hum orous illustrations not only amused you 'but convinced you by their kvI dently sound application to the auo ject in hand. He showed where good roads were saving the country some five billions of dollars, and he . gave the figures on which the coat was based per ton-mile. The great difference in the valuation, of prop erty, the increased population and, the improved intelligence and living condition of the farmers along the line of the improved highways. He told how the people of Illinois, Ohio and other states north of us were anxious to visit us, and he had no doubt that many of them would be so pleased, with our opportunities here and with our delightful climate that they would make investmerits here. He showed the greqt amount of advertising we had already gotten,'by the issuing of maps showing the route of the highway. -People who never heard of Covington before are now looking it up in anticipation that some day they will make the '. trip through this section. Inl.lac' , ,: there .is to be .a ibig tourist trip south in October, in charge of the highway officials, some 200 auto mobiles abeing already listed for the t trip. It will not be possible to go to New Orleans, as the connection - will not 'be made in time, but the '. party will camp as near the city as they can get, and New Orleans will be invited to come out and see them. Mr. Wilson said that the road would !be. the most perfectly marked N of all highways and the most con venient for the traveler. In a few weeks the markers would reach Lou sliana. The marking has been given out by contract, and the arrangement for advertising has been so complet ed as to make the cost to the High way Association negligible. In fact, the expenses have been cut down to a minimum. The .only paid official is 'Mr. Wilson, And he gives his en tire time to the project for a isalary i less than he could earn in some other. occupation. Mayor. Badon thanked Mr. Wilson \N for his visit and for his very enter taining and instructive talk. -He promised Mr. Wilson that the Coy ington club 'would Aet busy and do its share in helping the Highway As sociation to help us. The members present very earnestly expressed themselves as appre.iating the bene fits the highway Would be to us and :;' the necesdity of our. help in flnanc Itng the pulblicity plans that were i now being carried out. The oly i revenue of the Association is through the dues of the associated clubs, and not a cent is being wasted. O------- ' DEMONSTRATION OF MEAT OUR ING AND PACKING. About twenty of thie enterprising and progressive farmers of Onvil re quested a demonstration of the pro- ". cess of meat curing and packing as ; practiced by the Government, and Mrs. Davis, home demo°4tration:i· agent, met them last Saturday and devoted a few hours to exgplaining and demonstrating.
