TO PRESS WAR ON CATTLE TICK North Louisiana Plans No-Fence Law and Big Fund to Stamp Out Pest. The Anti-Cattle Tick 'Association, composed of represen of police juties of sixteen p of-north Lqviaiana, and owners of prom c o the state, held its third meeting at Monroe a few days ago with fifty del egates in attendance. Harry D. Wil son, state commissioner of agricul ture; Dr. George Paxton of the Lou isiana division of the bureau of ani mal industry, and Dr. E. P. Flower, secretary of the state live stock sani tary board were also present. Charles W. Phillips of Monroe, president of the asociation advocated a no-fence law as a means of com batting the tick and raising the far reachiog quarantine. A campaign has been started to help the police juries of the sixteen parishes comprising the association to obtain from $150,000 to $200,000 each year until the entire territory has beer cleaned of cattle tick and the quarantine raised. Each of the parishes will be required to raise $10, 000 a year to conduct the fight and in some, double this amount will be necessary. The assciation, it is said, will endeavor to help each parish fi nance its part of the program. The plan being to make the said sixteen parishes entirely free from ticks by 1924. It was shown that there are about 500,000 cattle under quarantine in north Louisiana and that it is im possible to buy and sell cattle in the restricted territory, and this involves the loss of millions of dollars annu ally. The association will work through sixteen parish police juries through an executive committee. This exec utive committee is authorized to aid each police jury in its efforts to finance the anti-tick campaign. "Treasury Savings Certificates are Funding favor in foreign lands as well as in every section of the country and our outlying posessions," said Lew Walace, Jr., director of the U. S. Gov arnment savings system. "Every state in the union has purchasers, and the treasury receives orders from Alaska, Flawaii, the Philippines, the Canal Zone, the Virgin Islands and Porto Rico. But it is not alone in the United States and its possessions that this savings security is in demand. Orders also come from Canada, Cuba, Mexico, San Domingo and Peru, while just recently there was a request for information about the certificates from Rome, Italy. Some of the pur Zchasers of the certificates in these dis tant lands take the limit, $5000, while others buy the smallest denomination, a $25 certificate. This widespread sale shows that the savings spirit is becoming an American trait, for usually these purchasers of certificates are American citizens." Motor Truck Convertible into Tractor A motor vehicle that is interchange ably a truck or a tractor is in use on farms in France. It is described and illustrated in the September Popular Mechanics Magazine. To transform the truck into a tractor, a wheel rim of considerable larger diameter than the front-truck wheels is mounted around each of them, with connec tions formed of radial struts. Just in front of the rear-truck wheels are a pair of tractor wheels on a special axle that can be lowered to bring these wheels to the ground when the tractor rims are on the front wheels. The rear-truck wheels are then taken off, and on their driving axle a sproket wheel drives a chain which engages a second larges sprocket on the trac tor wheels. The change can be made quickly. - "HOLD UP!" A call, a night call, Is now on hand; It says to hurry, come As soon as you can. Get all of my grips, As it does not say What is the trouble, nor How long I'll have to stay. Hold on! cried my wife, What is the meaning of that; You are about to leave Without any hat. Have you got all of your Grips, medicines and gun, As traveling at this hour Is really no fun. No, said I, But if it is to please, To comfort you and Put you at ease, Give me the boy With 100 shells, To comfort you and The childrep as well. After leaving home I began to feel My blood running backward; I got cold in my heel. I looked up close in The shade of the pickets, Two men I saw; the Balance in the thickets. Hold! cried the talker, One of the two; My hands on the lines. Was all I knew. It was such a sudden Shock and least expected, At that present moment. My wind was affected. I came to in a hurry; to kill Is against my religion; I grabbed my shooting iron Which aroused my cowboyism. I looked into his hands Also into the other one; I saw, much to my surprise Neither had a gun. He walked upon my gun Even though I had him covered Allowing him all the chance - Not to be murdered. With his hands almost on my buggy wheel, The other on the top, I called to him, "just one step More, and to hell you will drop." He fell back. I went )n To see about my call; It was then midnight; arriving At the place to find no one at all. The owner, no doubt, Was awfully tired. So he went to bed and Fell asleep; I called and called. No One not even peeped. A stranger I met At midday said: "Hold on doctor, I have something to say." "They were not going to kill "You, it is true; "Only whip you; but when they "Saw that gun they flew." CHARLES MORSON JACOB, Veterinarian, Convent, La. Advt.

The jur, 41cr making its report recessed au to beyond the poter of wo to de cribe. "A mob is always cowardly, but the savagery of this mob in its relentless brutality is almost unbe lievable. The indignities heaped up on the dead did not end until their boies were interred in unknown graves." The jury returned a total of forty four indictments for murder; fifty eight for conspiracy to commit mur der; fifty-eight for rioting and fifty four for assault with intent to mur der. A telegram sent by John L. Le wis, president of the United Mine Workers of America, to state senator Wm. Sneed, a district president of the miner~s' union, is blamed as one of the causes of the riot. In the tele gram Lewia said that union me i "are justified in treating this crowd as an outlaw organization and in viewing its members in the same light as they do any other common strike-break ers." Trappers Fight For Their Rights. About 400 trappers from the par ishes of Lafourche, St. Charles and Jefferson, a few days ago obtained a temporary injunction in thecivil dis trict court of New Orleans against the Delaware-Louisiana Trading Com pany, restraining it from interfering with trapping in the wild lands of those parishes. The Delaware-Louis iana company recently obtained a lease on the lower coast and has agreed to permit trappers to operate on the lands for $50 each a year. The trappeds charge that the wild lands are not subject to ordinary ownership or physical possession and claim the right to trap as they and their fore fathers have done for thirty years.
