llis Taken Place.
Had officials and directors of the
Great Southern Lumber Co., sub
mitted to a vote on which trip they
enjoyed the most during their weeks
stay in Bogalusa, the Enterprise is h
of the opinion that the honors
would have fallen to the Bogue
Chitto Stock farm. Few, if any, of d
the directors have visited this place B
since it was transformed from ao
2600 acre cut over land to one of r
the most modern and the most talk- tl
edof farm in the state. D. T. Cushing,
to whom most credit is due for the
remark2ble progress of the farm and i
the fine stock and equipment on it,
had charge of the party. It requir- e
ed 11 automobiles to carry the
parties to the Bogue Chitto farm.
On the arrival at the farm the cars i
first stopped in the fields where raw C
cut over land was being placed in
cultivation. Here an engine and a
force of men were removing stumps
and logs at the rate of an acre and
a quarter a day It was an inter
esting sight and the crowd remained
for half an hour watching large
stumps being removed by the roots.
Mr. Cushing stated the cost of this
method was a fraction less than
$20.00 per day.
Next the bungalow, which is built
of Yellow Pine, was visited and the
directors were shown a modern far
mer's home with all conveniences.
The fine Herford cattle then attract
ed the attention of the party and
finer cattle was never seen in the
South. Next the Duroc Jersey Hog
department was visited where a
large number of the finest hogs
known were found. Everything for
the health of the hogs was tound on
this section of the farm. Conven
iences were not overlooked, for pat
ented posts had been erected where
by they could scratch themselves to
their hearts content.
Next the grainery and outhouses
were visited and no building was
overlooked and reasons given as to
why it was there and why it wasi
built exactly as it was. Every build
ing had its convenience not foundi
in ordinary farm buildings.
The Registered Herford Bulls, the
Registered Jack and the Percheron
Stallion were viewed by the parties
which pronounced them equal to
any ever seen and there were sev
eral experienced stockmen in the
party. Growing crops of various
kinds, specimens of crops that had
been raised and the concrete silos
attracted much attention.
There was not a single member
in the party that did not thoroughly
enjoy the trip and realize that
what was being done at the Bogue
Chitto farm was the greatest pos
siblething to induce farmers to
come here and locate. And the ex
pression on the faces of the directors
of the Great Southern admitted that
the progress has exceeded their ex
pections.
The officers and directors present
were:
Walter P Cooke, Jerry Crarv. Ganson
Depew, Frank H Goodyear, Chas. W
Coodyear, Orlo J Hamlin, Horace H
Redfield. FL Peck Fred A Lehr, W
H Sullivan, and Major Lane S Hart.
Among the guests were, Mesdames

SSANTA GETS MANY LETTERS

letters from the good little boys and
girls of Bogalosa which were sent
