Lh L ( _i'j itnstiution rai I,
u.i,:r. buy a iae or more. It
is a saeC invstment, will serve
the farmer, th i-uby the country
generally and be a patriotic act,
that will return a substantial
dividend. Let every bank, mer
chant, doctor, lawyer, public
officia!, educational institution,
cotton gin, public warehouse,
railroai. garage, new:spaper,
postmaster, saloon, and last but
not least, cotton broker, and
every other business dependant
on public patronage, buy a bale.
If this is done and a reduced
acreage is planted in cotton next
year, which the farmers will .do,
if they see that the country
is willing to help them, and not
exploit their product as is too
often lone, the situation will be
eased. My "Buy-a-Bale" is No.
198, weight 512 lbs.
In closing I want to warn the
farmers about a letter that is be
ing sent out by a cotton firm of
N. O. They state that they will
advance $25 per bale of over
500 lbs. and state further "we
will hold your cotton until we
notify you otherwise."
That means that they will hold
your cotton until they notify you
that it is sold, or until they re
fuse to hold it any longer. If
this is a fair sample of what the
cotton brokers will do, during
these trying times, the farmers
had better be careful.
Yours truly,
Aged Lady Expires.

Grand Coteau, Sept. 2S.
Early in September the old his
toric college flung wide its por
tals to a large number of youths,
thirsting for knowledge. From
early morn, trains, autos and
other means of conveyance, sped
fast through Sunset and caused
Grand Coteau to reecho with
new life and gayety. The steady
increase during the month has
been gratifying and now most
of the old boys have returned
with a large quota of new ones
making the attendance a record
breaker for the famous institu
Home sickness was dispelled
by the old reliable national pas
time and the ever pleasant dip
in the great swimming pool: The
spirit of work is in evidence and
promises of a very successful
year are in sight. Most of the
baseball material, which brought
such laurels to Southwest Louis
iana is still with us and the priv
ilege of a traveling team adds
zest to the athletic spirit. Foot
ball is inaugorated this season at
St. Charles and through the ef
forts of Coach Andrepont, for
mer Spring Hill fullback, the
heavyweights will soon show
speed and improved team work.
