of the federal departn::ct of agri
cu!ture, will be herer :ind give a
talk on the benefits at'l advatazges
of different kind, of farming,
diversified, scientifi"' and other
wisc, and it is our hore that all
who can possibly attend to be pre
sent, and learn of the ways by
which those surrounding us are
prospering, and then we can do
The parish must raise $600 and
if possble $800, which will l)e
duplicated by a like amount by
the federal goverment, which will
go to provide means by which this
parish may have an agricultural
expert, who will be us and devote
his entire time and attention to the
welfare of our farmers, showing
them just how to use their land to
the best advantage; organize dif
ferent associations throughout the
parish, which will be of mutual as
well as individual benefit; instruct
and encourage the boys and girls
all over the parish, how to raise
vegetables, and how to can them;
teach boys how to raise good breeds
of stock, poultry and the like.
This will be the best thing that
Vermilion has ever had in the way
of progressive farming, and which
will terminate in the better and
more comfortable living on the
farms; will encourage the boys
and girls to stay on tl:e farm, in
stead of going to the towns; take
the farmer out of debt and afford
him a chance to live a more pleas
ant and properous life.
We are eager to see this worthy
motvement carried through, and
the goverment will meet us half
way; our benefits will be great,
collectively and individually---all i
for one and one for all.
Be sunre that you are there and
hear what is to be said, do your
share toward the movement.

Cubs 6, School 4.
The Abbeville Cubs, the new
and hustling base ball team, were
successful last Sunday in defeating
the Abbeville High School team.
The score was six to four. Ever
since the previous game, when the
Cubs were so badly beaten, they
have been determined to win a
Sgame from the high school team,
and with that aim in view, they
did, but oh, they could not do the
high school team up in merciless
style like they were done in the
previous game. The Cubs are
now more anxious to play than
ever. Both teams are young and
are making rapid strides toward
being good, strong teams. Now
for next game.

No More Sunday Shaves.
The barbers of this city have
made a nice move in the way of
bettering the policies of their
business; a move that is worthy
of mention. The move is to here
after not open their shop on
Sunday, and all agreed to the
proposition, so hereafter one must
find time during the working days
to visit the barbers. It is our hope
that the barbers will all stick to
this agreement. As it was before
so many waited till Sunday
morning to visit these shops, and
many times the shops were over
crowed and caused many to miss

They Wont Hurt You.
Don't be afraid to do your duty
because some one ridicules or op
poses you. A man who has opinions
of his own and the courage to
advocate them will be sure to have
opposition in this world because he
runs contrary to other people's
opinions, but just keep right and
your conscience clear. Don't
bother yourself about what people
say, life is too short for that.Some
will abuse you through envy, others
for the want of principle, and some
because they honestly differ from
you; but if you keep right on
openly, manfully and intelligently
and with proper dignity and char
acter, honesty of purpose and self
respect, those who differ from you
will respect your opinions.---Iber
Raised Very Fine Oats.

Vallee's feed store, which is a
sample of what Mr. J. S. Ewell

Ewell had 35 acres of this oats and
the crop was fine, and has cut the

he had not saved more for seed as
