The Texas & Pacific Railway Company
operates two daylight trains over its Port
Allen branch, one running between Addis b
and Ferriday, and one running between L
Addis and Torras. When it was suggest- A
el at tihe hearing that the schedules of
these traints be re-arranged, a protest was
Sintmudiately made against the change of
the schedule of either train by citizens of i
Point Coupee parish. Some of these pro- C
tests were well founded, but the princi
pal reason urgedl against changes in the F
prtesent 'schedule wast thle personal inctn
venience which maight retsult to a few
patrons, of the Texas & Pacifict Railway
living onti the Port Allen branch. The
(tonuaimi-iat is always s-ensitive to the cry
,of inconvleieientce wahen raised by the putilb
lic, tbut it cannot mnistake a portion of the
p ublic lar the entire public, inor fail to
tIo that which, in its )pinionii, will be of I
The .lisouri Pacific Iron-Mountain
~ System under the dliretion of its agricul
tural dtepartmenst is estalhlishiing the most
ex~nive systemii of denionstratioi farms
to co-operate with the farmers along its
lines yet iiidertakeni by all Aierican
railroad. The company has already es
tablished five large dlemonstration farmsi
and expects to soon have a sixth in op
eration. These farms range in size ironi
twenty-tive to forty acres, which makes
the undertaking the miost pretentious yet
ilnauguirated. Work will be conducted
along the samne lines as the ((overnlentlit
d(hunlistration tarn work, but will be on
a umuh.I larger scale whichl will make it
relatitly n ire valuable.
.\t pre-ent the faroms will bie c'inhndil
to, the track- so the fIron .1luntain Rail

in l,)ttisiana. The -ixth i- to bew .omie
where in the ,ucpany'" track.s in south
ern Mi sou ri. the exact hlcation not hav
Sinjg beetn decided.
All the fantis will lie under the general
sutaerision of Mr. L. A. Markhanm,
('Comnnissi.,oner of Agriculture of, the Mis
souri Pacitic-Iron Mountain, with head
quarters at Little Rock. Mr. Markhamn
was fI)ormerly in the service of the U. S.
Agricultural Ilepartnient. The Ilited
States lDepartment of Agriculture will
co-operate directly in conducting these I
farms and have field agents representing
them, and the State Agricultural Colleges J
I of Arkansas and Louisiana, C. W, Wat- f
son and Mason Snat-den, State Agents
for Arkansas and Louisiana, respectively,
are giving unreserved co-operation in di- e
recting the experiments.
Each farm is to have a resident man- o
ager and each is to be located along the '
tracks of the company's lines in close
proximity to a town. The managers and c
towns near which the farms so far estab
lished are located, are as follows: G. M. n
Monroe, Glenmore, Ia. ; Tom Andrews,
Mer Rouge, La.; J. J. Lowe, Dermott, c
Ark. ; J. W. Turner, Conway, Ark., and
W. P. O'Neal, Hope, Ark.
The railroad will continue to experi
ment for at least three years regardlees of r
resaulta, and if at the expiration of thatt
time the work has proven an suoessful
as anticipated, it will be continued in
definitely and both the msie and the num
ber of the demomnration farm. will be '
incrasmed. Eventuasly it is cotemplated

people. In this case the entire public
from New ()rleans to the State line is to
be considered, as all are deeply interest

lHere is the way a certain mini ter e l
S ientlehmen : If all the cypress snatchedl
from the forests of Louisiana was con
structved into one great ark, it would car
ry every living animal in the world. If
all her yellow pine was sawed into loin- tr
her and built into a wall one hundred to
feet high, it would reach around the $S
world. If all of her oil was poFured into M
one great stream, it would make the
I Mississippi River look like a bubbling
brook. She has mined enough sulphur
to run the fires of Hades for a thousand
years. if all her sugar was placed in one
great heap it would make Lookout
mountain look ike an ant hill. If all the
cattle in Louisiana were converted into
one steer, he would drink the Gulf of
Mexico dry in one sip, with one sweep V
of his hoof he would complete the Pan
ama canal, his horns would extend from
Maine to California, and with one switch
of his tail he would sweep the Milky F
Way from the universe. This, gentle
men, is Louisiana."
