We should break our lands as early as possible in the fall so that the boll weevil will have no place to hi bornate or Ine during the winter, and burn off the ditches and fenice ctrners. e cond. We should plant the earliest maturing seed cotton that can be obtained; such varieties as Wanamaker" Cleveland, Moneymaker and Improved King cotton, that will mature before the O10th of August, when the boll weeil do their worst damage. Third. We should plant cotton seed as early as possible and plant a large amount of seed in a good seed bed. Pourth. We should destroy or burn the squares when they Fifth. We should plant with our cottop seed from one to three hnadred pounds of nitrate of soda-to helI the cotton mature earlier, before the 10th of August. It hasben aproven beyond question that nitrate of soda causes cotton to mature much earlier. Sixth. We should cultivate our cotton rapidly, inten sively and continually until August 1st, so as to produce a dust mulch. I. Seventh. We should use calcium arsenate with the most improved machinery obtainable and not trust the application of this expensive poison to colored labor unless the planter superintends in person. There is no doubt that if every plant er in -Tensas parish will fllow this course he can largely lessen the damage done to his crop by the boll weevil. The new farm bureau organbution in St. Joseph, W5 F be gld to help the farmers of this parish secure cotton seed, tzte of sod and calcium arsenste in carload lots at the very lowest prices obtainable. If they cannot do this I am t stilled that the banks in this parish will be only too glad s to order this seed, nitrate of soda and calcium arsenate for a the tmrfs ers of the parish and distribute the same among them. By ordering in carload lots, this poison and fertiliser an be obtained at much lower prices than by buying it in. SWe mae these suggestions to the farmers of this parish, because we have tried them all our selves and know that they will produce good results. In our next advertisement we expect to make some sui 8 geationa for bettering the labor coaditao s of this panis, p which we all know are in bad condition.

Brio rid w GCovernment operation of ste p.ng had strikingly failed, was bet main theme of a comprehensi re suc .dress in favor of the Ship Subsidy GrE .111, made by Joseph E. Ransdel, her emocrat, (Louisiana) in the s,. mal te today. He told how the experi- er :ent had worked in Canada and res ustialia, as well as in the United per tates, and called attention of the not penate to figures from the last an- eq uai report of the Panama Railroad Bri teamrahip Company, Government an( .wned line, which shows deficits for we the last two years. I ma Senator Ranadell, who is also wh President of the National Merchant SMaine Association, discussed many CO - mportant sections of the Shipping .Sill which had been ignored here iofore in the Senate debate. He laid special stress on the value of the 126,000,000 Uonstruction Loan i und, the carrying of half of the tht Inmigration in American ships, the an cariage of Government stores in col private vessels an4 the interrela tions of rail and water traffic. 19 "The creation and maintenance of me an American merchant marine is aD basiness question," said Senator Ransdell. "Politics should not enter col into its consIderation. As law makers ern sad genuine Americans of the 100% tariety, our duty is to pise bhehind A4 as every considerstIae etehpt what Ai is best for our country. We should Bi ! look only to the interests of America Be arst and last. We should not scan the Cs political horizon to ascertain what C+ may be the effrct of this measure Cl on the next political campaign, or Cp the next President and Congress. DI Patriotism alone should dictate our Es p6licy, and when tried by that acid E test, the Shipping Bill is not found E wanting." Fi Senator Ranudell said that he did Ja ot claim perfection for the measure, Lai but that as it stood today, it had Li outstanding fertares that were the Li result of monrths and years of study M and deliberation. In iesassinge the h question of higtoher operatin cosrts N of American rvessels, the Senator O read into the record some recent Pe hvidende of lggat ieglisk ship. I ping companies, which show that E they paid from ten to tifteen per cent, tax free, In the latrst year to S beir share holders, while Amerian S shipping companies had paid no T lividemns. He sil that American E peratis costs ast sea wold con- V tinue as long as the American standard of living and iwage pre vailed at sea. He added that no one wished to reduce that standard and U said that it was imperative for the A Goveanment to offset this diter ential against American ship own- I T:' - imoertae of maiataianin Sthe trade reates estabished by the - aipping Board from the Galf and Swath Atlantic parts was another t fetatre of the Bill stressed by Sea- I ater Ransdcll. This pert of his spe ich t. igsed special interest among his ] Diemocratic co'leaues. Another a fature of Senator Ranasilrs speech i w his brief analysis of the mine- s bhrphip of the Shipping Boarl, since its organization in 1917 to dst'. t li gave high praise to the present a Commusioaers individually. SThe foreign opposition to tho I Shipoing BiR was dispssed at length b Senator 3a . He ashed: "Are foreign-born Samuel Gonmp- I ers and Andrew Frueseth qualifiei to speak as the real represe it.ivc, I of American labo-? Shall we lerard the international unions Ms oral spokesmen?

Fa In ce nclusion Senator ::. sdcell wh briefly discussed the re!at.oa, ..f orl tie merchant marina :"i the nali ,r.! :iv defense saying in part: co ' To my mind, the strongest arg#. renlt in favor of tee Bi'i is the ori very disordered state of w.,rld at.

Great Britain possesses 194 steel merchant CO' steamers, able to make 15 knots 4or better, while we have only 50 of such vessels. Even if our Navj equals an Great Britain's, the superiority of We her merchant marine in auiliats C makes her sea power infnitely great- "1 er than ours. If there were no other Pu reason than this for supporting the pending Bill, it should suffice, for m not only is America entitled to 5 equality on the sea with our great t British rival, but every patriotic and business reason demands that r we be in a position to exert and es maintain our national rights every where on this earth." th COTTON GINNED PRIOR TO D- Ai r CEMBER IIN-OUISIANAs fe - CROPS OP 1922 ANDI1Ia qt at .

No progressie, 1farmer would think of sitting idly Sby during the winter months while O the wood mnd gr sd, afr sprouts and boll weevil are "digging Sin," establishing themselves st strat egic points all over his plee ani getting ready for the next spring drive against his crops. As a matta' k of fact, during the growing sesnon nthe farmer is so busy planting, cul o tivating and harvesting, it is only n after his crops are in that he is free , to fght the farm pests to bet ad r Speaking of farm pests which .must be fought during the winter dn months, bad you ever thought ofi ,il malaria in this connection? Next _, summer malaria will blossom out in ng your community and bear its usual crop of chills and fever to intrfere with the joy of living, and reduce : 1lthe efcieeney of everyone attaceld. the end of the season the crop report of this disease, as collected by your State Health Department, will show some deaths, much sick neos, and a greater economic loss than that from any other disease in the South. How then does malaria winter in the southern states? You see very few cases of chills and fever during .he winter months, and it is only the warmest days that there are any malaria mosquitoes flying about. It is true that many malaria mosqui toes hibernate, or live through the winter months in secluded places, but so far is known these mosqui toes do not carry the infection over until next spring. Next year's ma laria crop is carried over in only one way-in the bodies of persons previously infected, inadequately treated, and never really cured of the disease. Here then is the clue for this winter's campaign against next summer's malaria. Kill the malaria seed in human hosts. CURE the ma laria cases, and thus prevent an abundant crop of malaria next year, for it is from these old eases that all of next season's new crop will spring. Fortunately, we can kill the malaria germs without injury to the person who carries them in his blood. Quinine will do this almost without fail if it is taken in suficient dos age for long enough time. The United States Public Health Service, the National Malaria Comn mittee, and the State Health Offcers of all the southern states, have ap proved the "Standard Quinine Treat ment for Malaria."
