MORGAN ENJOYED Test Vote To Be Taken Un S der Supervision of S Committee SDiscussion of the question as to 'whether a stock law would -be a good thing for Covington drew a large crowd at the Association of Com nmerce meeting last Monday evening. Previous to Ltkilg up ,tais qu'l-t o.J -a report waL ltade by Secretary. W. ;PI, lnckler ui the proceedings of the conventiou a. Alexandria in tne telephone rate case,'to wnich he was sent as a delegate. Mr. Minckler s;tated that it was agreed to raise :p15,000 to dight for a rehearing and to take the case to the 8upreme Court. This money was to be rais ed through subscription, and by the appropriation of $300 by each par ish. tHe also stated that the fact was brought out that Mississippi rates had always ,been cheaepr than louisiana's and the rate of increase was less, notwithstandilig the busi ness was greater in Louisiana than in any of the southen group of the Couaber:and states. Also that the system of supply purchasing througu parent organization was expensive and unbusiness-like. That an audi tor's services would be required to examine the books of the telephone company in Georgia and be neces ary for ePidBence to' be submitted. SMayor Badon was appointed to at tend the Baton Rouge Commission :'*A number of-ladies were presen In the interest of the stock law, ýn, as the discussion was slow in. oper ing, iPresident Warner stated tha as, the ladies had- cbme before th, Association requesting assistance ii obtaining a stock law, perhaps somi of them would like to open tlfe.dis cussion. While the ladies realizei that the buck had ibeen passed,. t( them, Mrs. E. G. Davis arose to th. occasion and heartily uphe:d theii contention. As she fnished her talk she made an opening for Mrs. A. B Margan to speak and thereby in vited a most amusing and humorous as well as the most forcible speech of the evening. Mrs. Morgan's hum or seemed to flow out easily and naturally and she soon had every body convulsed with laughter. Her manner of describing the depreda tions of free-roaming cattle and hin drance to the development of a town beautiful was void of animosity but full of the ludicrous.. This brought (Mr. Cappell to his feet, who told how after Mrs. Morgan. had dehorned a particularly mischievous cow, he had been compelled to complain that the cow now used her tongue .to accom plish the gate opening she used to do with her horns, and that Mrs. Morgan had replied, "My goodness, Mr. Cappell, I have dehorned my cow, do you want me to detongue her?" After the humorous situation quieted down, the discussion, was taken up by the men, also, and a res olution read and adopted, whereny the question of a stock law will be placed before the people for their decision. In it is embodied the re sults of the meeting.- It reads as follows: Whereas, the Women's Progres sive Union have passed a resolution asking that the Association of Conr merce assist them in pass.ing a stock law, and 'Whereas, there are many Interests that will be affected by the passing of such a law, and Whereas, this association has al Ways stood for fair play to all, and Irsists on a full discussion of'all question affect'ng the general .pub lic, therefore 'Be it resolved, That the Cov:ngton Association of Commerce recommend that a voce be taken by the resident taxpayers and voters in the town o' Jovington, to decide whether or not I majority of the people ,want a stock aw, and be it further *Resolved, That said voting be held Inder the auspices of a committee f five, two to be selected ly the :!tizens who want a stock law, and wo to be selected by the citizens vho are opposed to a stock law, and hese four to select one citizen to ,rve as, the fifth member o0 said ommittee, and -be it 'further Resolved, That said vote on the uestion he by secret ballot, only esident property holders to take art, provided that property owned y married peap:e, that both man nd w'~p h1 alloweed to vote, as the 1w provides community interests, 8 the women are deeply interested 1 the same, and be it further Resolved, That said committee of ve shall definfe the tinits that stock rW would cover in case one-is pass 1, and be it further . 1. (Continued on page 6) [BUILDING UPTHE A SOIL WITHOUT COMMERCIAL FERTILIZER Why the Soil Deteriorates In Spite of Commercial Fertilizers. DRAINAGE HASTENS IDECOMPOSITION -Other Soil Problems and Value of Clover and Legumes. "Hogging" off or grazing down the crops with live:tock is recognized'as one of the most profitable of ,the methods of general farming. In this drainage plays a very important part in addit on to previously mentioned advantages of drainage. The ohil. difficulty in using the grazing or foraging system is the damage done to the soil if tramped by livestock when the ground is wet, for thereby the soils, especially clays, are "pud died" and the crop is considerably wasted by tramping into Ahe ground. With good drainage such damage is prevented, and the stock can be put in. the fields very quickly after rains. I quoted statements in my fast art-cle concerhing the need for pro tein food (of which the velvet bean is an important one). to supplement sweet potatoes fed to the livestock. Here is a very important exception to those statements when. the .potatoes are fed in the field, as set forth by Dr. W. iH. Dalrymple in- "Modern Farming": "We find the sweet po tato vines are rather rich in prote.n, the last fifteen or eighteeni inches of the vine running high in this ingre dient, even higher than alfalfa, and. I think-Tthr-explanation-oe-t4i--arge returns that we .have had at this station in hogging off sweet potato fields is to be found partly in the fact that the hogs eat a good many of the v.nes, especially the tender tip3 that are rich in protein.". This statement made by so careful and d stinguished an authority gives an enhanced conception of the,value of the sweet potato for stock feed. The chief agricultural advantage of the South' is its ability to produce .crops throughout the winter and provide continuous grazing for stock. The sweet ipotato, velvet bean, cow peas, .chufas, corn and rape are suc ceeded ,by the winter grains and clov ers, which carry stock on to the feed ing season of spring and summer crops, of which the sorghum and cowpeas are the most important.. It is this continuous succession of feed ing crops which enable the Southern farmer to produce stock feed tp be fed in the field more cheaply than elsewhere. This system of farming reduces the labor cost to the mini mum, and as the stock do as well as when fed in the feed-lot this is the kind of farming which the farm er should strive to engage in.- But to do so he must get his soil in con-. dition to raise the succession of crops required to make the "hogging" or grazing system a success. Drainage is the indispensable condition to as surance of crops and only by drain age can the soil Ibe gotten into a high state of fertility and so main tained. Drainage is necessiry for the win ter crops, because it conserves mois ture and promotes soil fertiilty. I will Illustryte this chiefly by quota tions from United States agricultural experts concerning two most import ant winter-grown crops, oats and crimson clover. Soils for Oats, and Drainage. "The soil for oats should be .rea sonably fertile and should hold 'moisture well, as this crop requires a large quantity of water and may ,be severely injured by drought." Let: the reader remember what was said in previous articles to the effect of drainage as a conserver of soil moisture. The soil must not be wet, but moist.- "A well fertilized sandy or sandy loam soil will generally prove more satisfactory, particularly if it is well filled 'with humus,'so that its moisture-holding capacity is high. Good drainage is essential, however, as winter killing is most likely to occur on poorly drained land. Rust ard other diseases are also most severe on low, poorly drained areas." Drainage and Preparation for Crim son Clover. "Crimson clover can be grown successful'y on almost any type of soil if it is reasonably rich, well drained, and supplied with organic matter and the ,prop'er inoculating bacteria." "'t silceeds well in the humid reg'o~i- * the Gulf of Mex'co.". CrilAI clover has been an important fa or in increasing yields in soils tit. have been abus ed, but it is not a P foriland which is naturally very .poor. It does not do well, on rough, -newly cleared areus, raw subsoilhaid, dry clay, or .terile sand ;.F$ siqh soils soy beans, cowp ;and._4 et -beans are better suited and shbAi be useI for lthe first three: or: four years util crimson clover can be successfully grown.

MAN WHO IS MAKING A RECORD AS CLERK OF THE DISTRICT COURT AND HIS OFFICE FORCE Here are Mr. Blossmian and the clerkal force of the c~lrk's office, who are making a record for efficient and loyal service. 1Mr. Blossman is showing has new index to mortgages: Chief Deputy Clerk Guy A.

But there are -no soft jobs today. Fail ure. of accomplishment can not mas querade in the cloak of unconquer ab:e circumstances. In the language of a colored patriot, efficio-ncy must not be the bfggest thing that ain't and there is no'such thing as the world being stingy with its oppor tunities. The man who burns a candle when he can't get oil will not sit in the dark wwhen he Can get elec tricity. He does the best he can and does b6tter when he can. This is the hustle that. made America win the war, and it is the force that urged W. E. Blossman to index the records of the Clerk's office. When W. E. Blossman was made Clerk of the District Court he had had experience, enough in the clerical work of theooffice to realize that-the 'introduction of system would not only reduce the expenses of the' of fice but'would save to the lawyers (Continued on page 6) :o grow on poor soils, provided they are specially prepared by liming, manuring, and inoculating. In gen eral, however, crimson clover is .a crop for maintaining soils which are Already fairly productive than one or inducing productivity in soils where it is quite lacking." Crimson clover is .perhaps the most important winter legume available or this section. and as it provides a balanced-ration for grazing with any of the winter grains, it is obvious .hat the farmer here should quickly get his land in shape for it if he wants to engage in the most profit able kind of general farming. A well-drained soil and an enriched oil, which are necessary for crimson clover and also for the winter grains, emphasize the valu'e of drainage. 'Crimson cloverdoes not thrive on oils which are very poor, -but on well-drained soils in a productive ondition crimson clover frequently makes a vigorous growth,. even hough the soil may show a high ime requirement," which illustrates he fact that drainage saves much f the cost for commercial fertilizers. Fertflizzers and Drainage. The following discussion copied from Farmers' Bulletin No. 1119, "Eall-Sown Oats," shows how much money can be saved by the farmer who goes into the business of grow ing his fertilizers instead-of depend ing chiefly on commercial fertilizers; it supplements what was said in last week's article by giving a -practical suggestion of good farm methods, particularly as applied to: the oats crop. "The kind and quality of. fer tilizers to use for oats, as for other crops, depend- largely on the nature and fertility of the soil. Barnyard manure is not usually available in sufficient quantities in the South to be much of a factor, and therefore dependence must be placed on green manures and commercial fertilizers. The crop moAt' commonly used. for green manuring in the South is cow peas, though chim'on clover, vetch, velvet beans, bur'clover, peanuts and red clover are among those available. Cowpeas., soy beans and velvet beans are among the best available crops to immediately precede Oats. These crops may ;be cut for lhay, turning under only the stubb'e and roots, or the entire crop may be used as green manure. The fertili#ng effect on the folldwing Crel is about the same whether the stul3ble or the en tire plant is turned under, but the vines add considerable humus and improve. the physical condition of the soil.". "If the soil has been liberal ly fertilized for otheri crops, phos phoric ac'd and potash, need not be added for oats." : "Nitrogen is usui ally the limiting element in the pro duction of: oats on Southern- solls.

He had put on: a bathing suit, and it is thought he crossed ot the other side of the river, in a 'boat. He had left his clothing in a bath house. Not finding him when they were ready to return home, the party concluded Edward had gone on ahead, and they returned without him. Not finding him at home Mr. Campbell. returned to search for him and found his clothing. It was then getting dark and a searching party wa'- formed, without results.

(Editorial from New Orleans Item) The parish farm and demonstra tion agents went under :a wave of economy 'that swept over the St. Tammany -police jury at its March meeting and even enveloped the con stables and justices of the peace. How the police jury expects to make the St. Tammany fair a success with out the aid of these two agents, not to speak of the promotion of better and more profitable farming general ly in the parish, we don't know. Several other parishes have tried to do without them and have confessed failure. The Covington Association of Com merce has guaranteed the salaries of these two farming aides until -the police jury can be asked to recon sider its action. Not only the -busi ness men of Covington, ibut the farmers look upon the- discontinu ance of these two agents as a mis taken sort of economy. Calcasieu has just secured as farm agent Mr. Fondren, who' has served Jefferson Davis in that capacity for eight years. During his tenure of office, the farmers have l, bought through him, from 6,060, to 8,000 head of standard grade of cattle and the livestock industry has ibeen built up to fine proportions. Fifty-two silos were erected "and cholera, char bon and other livestock disees have been held in check. SWhen a p6olice jury looks upon a. parish- farm agent or a parish dem onstration agent -as an "expense," it is taking the wrong view of things. These aids to agriculture pay their own, way, with compound interest; by increasing the incme from the parish farms. If they don't do that, the police jury should accept their resignations and get agents who,,can "pay their ow~ way.'"
