This amendment has two purposes, (..) to or.-vide additional school fonds, an 1 (b) to raise •Cbooi funds with the entire parish a* the unit * f taxation «ith the view of elimating, as frr as possi ble, spicial district maintenance taxes |Cni«s that are exempted from paying parish taxes and that «nainta : n their y>' A n schools wi'j not pay to the parish school board ihis tsx of'one and a half mills. There are only two or three such Cities in the State. On present val «es, Hie funds 2»o he real zed from the Byroe Bib, Orleans included, will be approx mat ly three and a quarter million dollars, it is impos siWe to estimate the amount of special maintenance taxes that would be d'econtinued on account of the five mill limit and for the further reiso-n that the sprcial maintenance taxes would not be O-reded, but tiure-fourths of a mil lion dollars of special maintenance-' taxes wou d probably be discontin lied should tli s amendment be ad opted, Th»- importance of the Byrne« Amendment caunol be too g.rongij j*»njyh - is zed. If adopted, it -via pr ice the burden «>1 school Support on the entire parish, and will remove .it ft am the special districts many of which are taxed now almost to the point of ihe cun fiseïf.ioii of property. The bill pro-r vide* that where a school board will ueed.'ess than a mill and a half, it shall entity to the police jury that a s .naher lew w. 1 meet the needs of the schools,£ and tnat y such c iscs the p*lice iuriesjshail Ipake *he levies recommended I ti usl that you vyill explain fu' . «• ,oc ' ly these amendments to the •■chool patrons and other founds of pub lic education, and ask t >i their co operation and support in h vmg them ratified at the November elec tions. Should these three amend ments be adopted, ihe schools will bt on an excellent financial found ation, aud the school funds will be realized from the .State and Parish as units of taxation, and, als », the burden of schoo' support wi'l be much more "equitably distributed between Slate and Parish than is now the case Summarizing our situation, if all of these amemlmi nts should be ad opted, will be about as follows: 1. The East ham Amendment wi 1 produce approximately the Same i as we now receive, but the assess ment will approach a hun lred per cent of the value o! the property 2. The Hamley Amendment will pioduee a State School fund of a bout two and a quarter million dol lars. Your share will be doublephe State school funds that you now receive .V The Byrne Amendment wi'l provide a pa i?h tax of a mill and a half (except in Orleans, where it will be two aud three-fourths mill ' You can arrive at the amount of funds that this will pro luce in your parish by multiplying your cash assessment by one and a half milis. Knowing what you will real ize from the State. from the Eas tham Amendment, and from the Byrne Amendment, you will in po sition to determine the amount of special taxes you will need to main tain your schools. It would proba bly be wise for the parish schoo board to pass a resolution to the effect that in case these three a mendments are ratified, no special maintenance lax will be Collected, or that only a certain number of mills, which should be specified in til. resolution, will be levied. This will place the voters in position t, 3 know exactly what to depend up on, and, therefore, to vole intelli gently upon the amendments These ameodment^will provide no funds which can bemused next session, as all ot these levies will be based upoojlhe asressment Of j 1919 The State school funks foi next session will amount 10 about $3.20 to $3.30 per child of school ge and you shou'djbe governed accordingly in making your bud get for the session of 19 iS- 1919 In cone usion. I beg to say »liât the Legislature stood nobly by the schools in proposing these amend ments. ^believe that th y repre sen s the best constructive legisla tion within my memory.

CAUSES IMMENSE LOSSES Carbon Bisulphide, Properly • Ueed, Will KMI the Weevil end Save the Corn. The rice weevil, commonly callefi the black weevil, does the greateet damage to com. This Insect will at tack the corn In the field, consequent ly one muet use measures that will re duce such damage. The only method of lessening the ield ravages is to Beld-select the oeed corn In order to be sure of getting ears with tight shuck coverings. The ends of the ears should be especially well covered as this also reduces the damage of the corn ear or cotton boll worm. Field Infested corn should be harvested earlier than other com. By pulling it with the shuck on many of the wee vils may be removed. Such corn can be fed very early or It may be placed (after shucking) In a very tight bin and treated with carbon bisulphide to kill the weevils. Carbon bisulphide is a liquid which passes Into a gas very quickly after exposure. The gas is inflammable, so keep lights and fires away. It la heav ier than air, hence if shallow dlshea containing the liquid are set upon the com the gas formed will pass down through the com. It Is necessary that the gas come In direct contact with the weevils for at least 4S minutes to kill them. This make* It necessary to use one pound of carbon bisulphide for every 100 euttfc feet ef space in a tight bin. but If it Is slightly open the amount to use should be two and one half to three times as much. Tbl» fumigating should be done on a warm, still day, as the weevil begins to hi bernate at a temperature slightly below TO degrees Fahrenheit. All buildings so treated should be well ventilated 24 to 48 hours after fumiga tion. There Is no danger of Injuring the germination of the com, provid ed It is dry. even by using still great er amounts than mentioned above.— A. F. Kidder, Professor of Agronomy, Louisiana State University. in of HATCH CHICKS EARLY IN THE SPRING Many Rmmm Why Thla Practica Mat Early hatching next spring Is necaa gary if the desired Increase In prod no tion of ponltry la attained. It la also necessary, daring ths winter, that farmer« save young bans and pulleta. so they will be on hand for stock in the spring. The stock of poultry has been reduced considerably this fall by a widespread aale, for market, of young hens and pulleta. Therefore, it ta necessary to oonaerve stock now, or dee the shortage may Interfere ae rtously with tbo production program. In view of the atock shortage, to kill a good hen now la to reduce the po tential egg production next year any where from five to twelve doxen egga. Every hatching In the spring will increase the number and alae of fowle and the number of eggs produced next year. It will result In bigger blrda, and birds that will lay In the wUUr months. Every farmer la urged to atari the hatching season earlier than usual next year, either by Incubation or natural methods, If the hens will alt earlier. The ehtekena flret hatched fn the tyring are the ones that are largest la the summer, that mature flret In the fnll, and that lay eggs in the win ter, Furthermore, they yre the onea that will Want te alt early the follow ing «firing, which. In turn, will hatch earlier chleteae—and so the cycle will contint». On the contrary, chick ana hatched late In the spring do not mature until so late in the fall that they will not become winter layers. They will not alt until late In the next •pring, and so another cycle of late maturing, late laying fowla Is estab lished.—-L. S. V. Preee Bulletin.
