This amandmen' provides that
there shall be <io overlapping
school Q's - riels, and that lor main
teu tnce purposes n ot more than
&ve ril ii:s can be voted in any
school di-trief; and that where
special maintenance taxes have al
ready beer, voted in excess of five
mills they will be ieduced to »five
mil's. 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

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

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
.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. I uust
t iat all the friends ot public edu
cation will do everything in their
jower to see that the voters under
st..nd the proposed amendments
and are urged to support them
Yours since! ly

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.

they will not become winter layers.
They will not alt until late In the next

crease the number oJ hogs on every
farm. For the averare small farmer
hogs and poultry offer the most effec
tive means of increasing the meat out
pqt at any time in the near future.
In planning for increased hog pro
duction, it should not be forgotten
that In order to do this profitably
there must be ample food supply to
keep them in good condition. It has
been found by freqrcnt demonstra
tions that the cheapes. way to produce
pork is by furnishing a rotation of
good pasture crops.
