"Fair play" is a sentiment that sits snugly in the mind of every human being. No matter how criminal, how debased, how defiant of law, the sane mind is inherently responsive to its call. Aside from the finer distinctions that balance the scales of justice, fair play is a substitute that appeals to the most limited intelligence and the most blackened conscience with the same force that justice appeals to the stronger mind. It is a substitute that brings within the comprehension of the most illiterate criminal the demands of justice-"fair play." Did Green Rogers have fair play when he was shot down from ambusf? Did he have a chance for his life? The testimony and the verdict of the jury answr' that question. tiuman imperfection makes restraint of the law necessary. Human s(lliishness and self interest may cause crime and sometimes prevent its puii;shmený; but it is the same sellfish instinct, aided by christian fault, a:,d the experience of generations of civilization that demands respect for the law. It is the law-abiding man who maintains the sanctity of ti2. home, wh. ir the friend of churches and schools and civic betterment an .progress. Without a penalty, the law is useless. Crime must be punished. The 4uctrument is the people. The judge is elected by the people; the prosecuting attorney is elected by the people; the jury is selected under laws made by the people. It is the glory of our democracy that the people rule. If it is a failure, thu people are responsible. In the trial of Martin Jenkins and Ernest Pelar for the murder of Green Rogers, the conviction is the first in the history of St. Tammany parish that has been obtained after a mistrial. The crime was most brutal and uncalled for, and failure of punishment for it would have been a calamity. The jury, in its verdict, has rendered a service that will be far-reaching in its benefits to the community. As Mr.- Morgan said in his speech, if such crimes go unpunished, we might as well close the jail arid burn down the courthouse. There is no brutal joy in the sentence of the criminal. There is no vindictive delight in the retribution for the com-. mission of the crime. It is the comforting thought that the protecting arm of the law is thrust between the people and violence. There is sym pathy for those who suffer innocently the grief of disgrace and long sep aration, but there is sympathy, too, for the widowed woman who has lost the loving care and protection of a husband. KEEPING APACE WITH THE, TIMES. The total population of St. Tammany parish by the census of 1920 is 20,645. Deducting, from this the population of Covington, Mandeville, Madisonville, Slidell, Abita Springs Pearl River and Ramsay would leave a rural population of 11,621. The populations of other towns are not available, Lut it is, safe to say that the population of St. Tammany living on farms is around 11,000, something more than half the entire 'popula tion. The relation of agriculture to the prosperity of the parish can be clearly seen. With adaptability to crops that are staple on the market,. and with advantages that are superior in the production of some crops, including grapes, Satsuma organges, strawberries, cane, sweet potatoes and many vegetables, there is no reason why St. Tammany farmers should not add much more to the wealth of the parish. It is known that a large increase in production and proper organiza-. tion and business management would bring buyers to us; would make us known in the mar.,t and would secure better prices. We believe the fasmer L. coiuing more and more to an understanding-of these things and that a few -Fears will bring quite a change in the proitableress of agricul tural pursuits-drainage, more acres in cultivation and the use of im proved machinery. Thomas Walker Page, in an arAi°! in the Saturday Evening Post. says; * * * Eten as late as 1900, although there had been a marked trend to the cities, the urban population was less than a third of the whole. The recent census, however, disclosed the fact that the cities now contain more than half, or, to be exact 5 !..3 per cent, of the populatlin. This change of habitat signifies, if course, a change of occupanon More of our people are engaiued in manufac- turing, ccmmerce and personal services than in as;° 'utture In 3ther words, there are at present more than :gte as many to eat as there aic to pmiucuce food. It is obvious tha; for the reduced fraction of the ;bouliat :,:i en gage1 in ef-nrcubre to continue feeding our owu ueaple and produc ing a surplus tf aeil abroad, one or both of two tho'es must occur: The labei needed must be substituted by improved machinery, im piements and other labor-saving devices; and greater skill and more scientific methods must be applied to extract a larger'yield from the land In fact, both these things have been taking. place in sub stantial measure. * * * I. F. Wl(hrli has been doing some excellent work in demonstrating the value of f rnm meachixiery in preparing the ground and putting in crops. He is agent for the Fcrdson tractor and its numerous attachments for planting an- cultivating the soil, and he has put his machinery in prac tical operation on various farms around Covington. In this way all guess-work is eliminated. The accomplishments of the machinery is before the eyus. The greatest obstacle in the use of machinery is stumps; but here again the value of machinery is illustrated. To overcome this, Mr. Wehrli is offering to furnish a stump puller to any farmer who wishes to pot machinery on the farm and is confronted by the stump problem. We belie'.e work of this kind is good, constructiv'e business and of public benefit. The future of St. Tammany rests largely in agricuiture. THE PARISH FAIR. The St. Tammany Parish Fair was financially successful, and in soeine of its departments excoedud that of other years, but it wvas by no mean, what it would have been with proper co-operation of the farmers an 1 stock growers. The agricultural department showed the hack of a farm agent. The exhibits were of good quality, but the amount of space cover ed was not half what it should have been. There was iiothing ini it to compare with the exhibits made by G. C. Alexius when he was living nand took an interest in showing what could be accomplished on the farm. The exhibit of Paul Friedlander was a new enterprise, devoted to citra3 fruits.. His display of native grown oranges, Satsum~as and kumquats was a revelation of of what might be accomplished in this parish in this line. His 'york will ultimately be of great value to St. Tammany. The -poultry department was 'better than ever, which is saying a great deal, for few fairs In the state can equal us in raising -fine, chickens, but the stock Oopnrtnment was a most discouraging illustration of what tick CLEAN-UP SQUAD IS COMING IN SEARCH OF DISABLED VETERANS. (Continued from page 1) you Awere lucky and came out better thaf you went in and know some guy that didn't come out "Jake", you look up your buddy and tell him all about this clean-up squad and what they intend to do. They will help him file his claim for compensation or for vocational training, and if he is sick, there will be a competent doc tor on the squad who will examine him and if he has never filed a claim for compensation, he will help him file it and he will then give him transportation and send him to one of Uncle Sam's hospitals for treat ment and keep him there until he is well. Isn't that a fine thing to do? That is what the clean-up squad is going to do. So it's up to you and all the old gang that wore the 0. D., the blue and the white, to help find the chap that came out in a bad way and get him fixed up. Talk to your Red Cross Chapter, your American Legion infestation means to a parish. Outside of a few loyal exhibitors, there was no stoca show. Owners of fine stock who had before brought cattle into the parish for exhibition could not bhing them into tick infected terri tory, and ticky cattle did not seem to appeal very strongly even to the home stock raiser. The tick seems to have played the mischief with an industry that awhile back, believing tick eradication would be accom plished, was promising to St. Tammany. Under all the difficulties encountered, President Warner and Secretary Minckler and their co-worliers have earned the appreciation of*the public, as have the ladies who worked hard in their departments and in some instances made improvements over last year. It talkes money to run a fair, even with the co-operation of every one- - farmers and town folks. We understand Hammond is putting about $75,000 into their fair this year, and with a man like Will Houlton at the head of it, it will be a fair worth seei~ng.' We hope St. Tammany will' re turn the compliment of Hammond people, who visited our fair in large numbers. There will be stock there that will repay the trouble.

Wrestling with a wea'ken'ed condi tion of the blood is a desperate strug gle. Thin, watery blood deprives the body of .energy and 'causes a play ed-out ,feeling *not unlike utter ex-;: haustion. A man with weak blood has not the full use of his powers.. He lacks decision, and vacillate until he loses self-confidence. Some men, and women too, go fal . tering along for months tearcely real izing that they need Gude's Pepto Mangan, the blood-builder. But when 'they have taken it for a whil3, what a difference there is in the feel ings! The old-time vigor and the red-blooded hue of good health re turn. The new rich blood gets to work, building, fortifying, lifting the spirit up to its normal standard. Phypicians have prescribed Guda's "y Pepto-Mangan for years as a blood builder., Druggists sell it in liquid and tablet form. Look for the name "Gude's Pepto-Mangan" on the pack age.-Advertisement.
