NO SACRIFICE TOO GREAT.
I know that I might easier tread
The rugged path my tired feet now stumble o'er
Might easier earn the loaf of bread
And keep the legend wolf out from my door
Had I the chance I now can give
My child in school, to learn to live.
How of'en we hear the above expression lp some form. It is a senti
ment that seems to dig at the heartstrings of every parent who has miss
ed the opportunities of education. A full realization of this handicap is
not so bitterly present in the mind of the wealthy man or woman, because
the suggestion is not personal, and relatively considered loses the emotion
al appeal that fastens upon every tissue through which the blood of con
sanguninity flows. Yet it is the rich who lay the foundation for the school
that is built for both rich and poor, and It is a part of the pride of
American titizenship that as a rule they build with a kind heart and a
liberal hand. The only danger that ever threatens this great public
institution is a misconception of conditions. Lack of thoughtful consid
oration and failure to thoroughly understand conditfons that may call
for special taxation to maintain public schools might bring about a situa
tion that would be deeply regretted afterwards. ItJs for this reason we
again call attention to the election next Tuesday, August 16th, to vote a
tax of two and one-half mills for maintenance of the schools. of the Third
This tax is not a new tax, but is simply a renewal of the tax you voted
and that has expired. Superintendent Lyon states that even now, while
the defeat of the tax is very improbable, he has not been able to contract
with teachers, because should the tax fail there can be but six months
of school, and teachers are not willing to take a chance of only six months
salary when they can get nine in some other parish. Also, if we have but
six months school, no graduate of our school will be entitled upon the
diploma recelved to enter any first-class college. We will no longer be
a men ber of the affiliated high schools. We will stand by ourselves,
Remember this, and don't neglect to vote for a renewal of the two and
one-half mills at the election Tuesday.

that under present conditions an
animal dying of this disease may
through failure to discover it or care
lessness lie unburied for some time
widely spreading the contagion, it
appears how serious may become the,
disaster of the open range.
One of the bulletins thus sums up
the matter: "Pasture rotation, use
of forage crops, feeding from racks
or bare floors, draining or filling
swamps, and restraint of wandering
dogs are measures of value in para
site control. Permanet pastures per
Is not the testimony from so
many sources eloquently persuasive?
The forage-crop method which pre
w3pposes drainage for profitable emi
ployment is far the best for stock
•aising, and is the only one which
gives this section of country a de
cided advantage in livestock produc
:.ion over others. As adapted t.
sheep, the following is an indica
tion of its use: "The practice of
;razing the flock on forage crops
until the lambs arn sold in becoming
popular where lands are high' in
pr:ce and where stomach worms
cause trouble. Under this plan the
ewes -and lamb's are first grazed on
fail-sown wheat or rye. The land
is divided to avoid the necessity of
keeping the flock longer than ten
days upon the same ground. TIy the
time the second lot of this crop is
grazed down, spring-sown peas and
oats can be ready and the fall-wheat
ground plowed and reseeded to an
other cereal or to rape or soy beans
for later use. -Such a plan require06
some labor in preparing and seeding,
the land, but it produces the largest
amount of feed per acre and pre
vents trouble from the stomach
In putting dependence on a suc
cession of crops, the farmer should
have assurance of good harvests,
good yields. But if he has to gamble
on the weather, taking chances on
being able to plow and cultivate and
plant crops at the right time, specu
lating whether, crops will be drowi
ed out or dried up, whether the
ground will be too wet to permit
turning stock into'the fields to graze
down the crop when it is needed,
then his profits are very uncertain,
he may not be able to maintain the
rotaton or to use it at all, and his
'attempt at farming is likely to be a
failure. Drainage eliminates the
risk and makes returns certain and
dependable. That is why drainage
is profitable, why/it pays for itself.
