"Louisiana with her fertile
soil and her mild climate ~ffers
more to the progressive farmer
than any other state in the
Union. The more I see of the
other states, as great as they
are, the more I am convinced
that ours is the garden spot of
the United States."
Dr. Lazaro considers the
health and happiness of the
farmers of the most vital im
portance. He stated that organ
ization and co-operation by the
farmers are the surest way to
success; they should co-operate
with one another and induce the
merchants and business men to
co-operate with them. "Third,"
he said, "cheaper money and
longer terms on which to oner
ate your farm. I believe the
last Congress passed a sound
banking and currency law which
will prevent in the future such
panics as, we have had in the
past-for instance the panic of
1907. I believe it means better
financial, commercial and indus
trial conditions in the United
. States. It provides for the mo
bilization of the resources of all
the member banks, thereby
keeping them liquid and quickly
available in case of emergency.
I expect to see the next Congress
pus a rural credit bill which will
give the farmers of this country
the same advantages that the
farmers of Germany and France
have enjoyed for many years
and which would help our agri
cultural resources, which is the
foundation of all prosperity."
St. Landry's distinguished son, I
who has been representing the
district in Congress for the past
two years, spoke to th farL..
about good roads, advising them,

He praised L:, . :

as soon as they reaizs what thet
farmers of Louisiana are doing
to better conditions.
R. D. Bowen, of Paris, Texas,
praised Mr. W. B. Thomp.;,, cf
New Orleans, for his eLfort in
perfecting the NA\ ." -. '
warehouse plan, savinge that this
plan would be the greatest boone1
for the farmers. He seRereiy
·criticised those dealing nm utures
telling the farmers t. ; it was
only through their lack of co
operation that the gamblers made
their big money.
A,. C. Davis, natioial secre
tary, was one of the principal
speakers on Tuesday night. Mr.
Davis is from Arkansas and
pointed out to the Louisiana far
mers the progress made by their
Arkansas brethern, He said:'
'You must co-operate and work
with other farmers' union. Your
problem is the problem of the
entire United States; to economi
eally produce and distribute food.
Transportation and marketing
are the big problems for the Lou
isiana farmers now to solve."
Superintendent of state pub
lic schools T. H. Harris delivered
a masterpiece on the education
of the farmers. He pointed out
the many deficiencies now in the
present system and stated that
ithe day would come when the
princil i ' every country school
would ho a man who owned his
own F1me arid plantation, next
to the school, where the young
farming generation would be
taught scientific farming. Mr.
Harris spoke in a masterly man
ner, his voice resounding all over
the courtý'cn::1; his listeners ap
preciated his talk exceedingly.
After Tuesday night the con
vention went into executive ses
sion, but occ:si.ally a speaker
would be allowed to address the
delegates and the public. One
of the most interesting talks de
livered on Wednesday was that
of W. C.A Chevis, able manager
of the Southwestern Louisiana
Developerment Bureau. He spoke
in behalf of the tick eradication,
showing the farmers that the
cattle in this state would bring
more on tihe market if they were
free from ticks. He also spoke
conside taliy on drainage.
President I. M. McCollister in
his annual report expressed the
belief that the larmers' union,
with several thousand more
members in the state, would not
only reduce the cost of high liv
ing for 'he farmers but' would
make the Louisiana farms a big
paying proposition. The farmers
he pointed out, should co-operate
and the best way to do so is to
follow the precepts of the Farm
ers' Union. If the farmers were
organized they would send their
own Congressmen to Washington
to take care of their interest.
He said that the Union was on
the right track and was already
succeeding in getting better
prices for farm products.
Mr. McCollister viewed the
work performed in this state;
saying that he often neglected
his own private business to pro
mote tne interest of the organi
zation and that he would continue
doing so as a private, when his
successor would be appointed.

After a most interesting execu
tive session the convention ad
journed on Tuesday night until
Thursday morning. The first
speaker that day was Father
Grace, president of St. Charles
Colldge, who spoke on education.
Father Grace had been asked to
say the opening prayer; after he
had performed this duty he was
asked to speak on education.
Father Grace spoke on the im
portance of education, explaining
to the farmers that education
meant leading out of ignorance
into culture and refinement.
In order to make farming a suc
cessful industry in this state the
young country boy and girl had
to be given an education. With
out education, Father Grace said
that scientific farming was
out of the question.
Assistant Agricultural Agent
Star, of the Texas and Pacific
railroad, chose live stock as his
subject. He explained that if
the farmers of Louisiana were to
raise live stock in connection
with their farm, they would
quickly solve the high cost of
living question. He laid stress
on the fact that the farmers
should raise only the best, as the
markets demanded standard

Mr. Lawrence Pitre, who re
sides about two miles from this
city on the Washington road,
brought into town on Tuesday
morning exhibits of the canned.
goods he had put up from off his
own farm during the year. Mr.
Pitre was most successful this

he recently purchased.
Mr. Pitre left a sample of his
