Opelousas, Dec. 15, 1913. Mr. Editor: Several weeks ago I handed you an article intended to call the attention and arouse tne in- 4 terest of our people to the beauty ; and advantages of shade and ornamental trees to the residents of our city, as well as to such visitors as possess both means and taste. Such visitors would be a valuable acquisition to the community, and a profusion of beautiful trees along our thoro fares, added to our well-kept lawns and parterres, would doubtless appeal very strongly to them. I had proposed to follow said article with others along the same line, telling what Crowley, Eunice and other near-by towns had done in this direction, and I trust that you will find room for it this week. ,In the meantime a remarkable, a noteworthy article in last Sun day's Times-Democrat, written by prof. H. L. Bourgeois of St. James parish, has been brought to my attention. It tells of a school garden in that parish tend ed by the pupils under his super vision, and is accompanied by several pretty pictures. In commenting upon the laud able enterprise inaugurated by him Mr. Bourgeois says: Regarding this line of work I wish to say that beside the personal benefits of mental relaxation and wholesome out door exercise I have found that the in terest aroused, both in the children and in the community, has more than justi fied the expenditure of the stra I amount of money and of energy brought into play. It,is a comparatively easy matter to get children interested in school ground work, and here in our State, with its fertile soil and favorable climatic condi tions, it is a matter but of a short while to transform a desolate school ground into one that w 11 be an esthetic inspira tion t.) the youthfgilminds there engaged in making adjustments with their sur roundings. - A school, he adds, should be, among other things, a center of culture and of irefinement; a place where it is taught that "a thing of beauty is a joy forever," and that things beautiful in clude not only the literary and the mor al, but all things beautiful and among them civic beauty. As Mr. Gillette says, "It is everybody's concern how the neighborhood looks. One slovenly place is a blot on the neighborhood. The scenery is one of the Assets of a country; and the appraisal of this asset is bound to increase with time; because the edu cated mind is always sensitive to its surroundings. Any person who igno rantlydespolis the scenery is guilty of an offense to the community, whether so. recognized by law. or not." It is my belief thaf a school should be, in all things, a power for good and for beauty,, and that it should in the matter of outdoor art set an example of local possibilities to every home. It is true that a teacher certainly has enough to do in school without seeking to become, or to make, 'landscape gar deners. But this is far from being the idea. And undoubtedly the prime es sential in education is to teach alongthe line of the practical and the useful, and therefore the first duty of the teacher is to cultivate minds and not flower gar dens. But the tactful teacher, with a bent towards things beautiful, and who realizes that civic beauty is an asset to the community will devise means to cultivate both minds and flower gardens or as Miss Carney puts it, "will culti vate minds and spirits through flower gardens" without in the least inter fering with the regular school work. There can not be the least doubt that if eve: y school in St. Landry had such a garden a noticeable change would soon be brought about in the culture and refinement of the children as well as in the community. In the name of this community I thank Mr. Bourgeois for his helpful suggestions and thank you for publishing them broad cast throughout the parish. OBSERVER.

And at so little trouble to you! The foundation of all good farming is the uphuilding of the soil. The man who makes his land poorer is a poor farmer, no matter what else he may be dc ing; and our whole system of farming has been a soil-robbing system. It is time for a change. True, the change is being made, but much more slowly than it should be. Naturally, such change can only be made by in dividuals, and until the individ ual farmers who farm for the future exceeds the number of those who think not of their land, but only of what they can get out of it, we shall be on the wrong track.-The Progressive Farmer. Our hogs fail to maintain their size, first, because they do not get enough feed, and second, be cause they do not get the right kinds of feeds. If the hogs get enough of the feeds they like, and among these are rich feeds in protein, like the legumes, milk and tankage-and they are properly cared for, they will maintain their size, or will grow as large as their parents: or more accurately, as large as the aver age of their parents and grand parents or ancestors. -The Pro gressive Farmer. Our greatest mistake in feed ini is the purchase of feedstuffs purchased from mills and farm ers of other sections. No ani mal can be well-fed on high pr'iced,' purchased feeds, on which h e a v y transportation charges are paid, when as good or better feeds might have been produced at home at less expense than the purchased feeds cost their producer.--The Progres sive Farmer. $100 He'ward, 510) The readers of this paper will oe pleased to learn tnat there is at least one dreaded disease that science has been able to cure in all its stages, and that is Catarrh.

Jau for oae./ SAMUEL FINLEY BREESE MORSE An artist and portrait painter by pro fession. Morse became an inventor by chance. A casual* remark by a fellow passenger on board ship when he was returning frotm London in 183w caused him to take up the sttidy of electricity. That remark was: "Dr. FraikUlin's ex ,eriment proved that electricity passes Instantaneously over a wire of any length." Before the voyage was com pleted. Morse had iniunted the "Dot and-Dash" alphabet, and had thought out and planned essentially the electric telegraph as It exists' .today. But it was not until 1844 that the first line was completed between Washington and Baltimore. and the historic message "What hath God Wrought," was sent. For years, he tried to .intrest Congress in his project, then he visilted England and France hoping to interest the gov ernments of these countries, but without success. When he returned in 1839, he wrote: "I am without a farthing in my pocket, and have to borrow even for my meals; and even worse than this I have incurred a debt of rent by my absence." But he continued to 'etition Congress, and finally was rewarded for his persever ance by an appropriation of $30.000 which built the Washington-Baltimore lines and placed his name in .the front tank of benefactors of the racya 3 Paid on Time Certificates of Deposit Paid on Savings, accounts $1.00 Starts an account A.
