The Evolution of
The Oil Mill Industry
Since the advent of the Boll Weevi!, the Oil Mills in Louisiana have been
content to work a small territory near home and run three weeks or three
months in the year. To do this profitably, the initial profit in ton Cotton
seed had to be around $6 to $10 per ton.
A business can't mark time, it has to go forward or go backward-- Most of
the Oil Mills have gone backward anI only the strong ones have been able
to hang on.
This condition interests every cotton farmer, every seed seller, every
' merchant-an Oil Mill running a good part of the year is satisfiel with $1
or two $2 and puts this BIG difference in the price it pays for Cottonseed.
Thus putting this money in its legitimate channels. THE ALEXANDRIA
COTTON OIL COMPANY desires to draw your attention to the fact that it
has c. anged the condition on the first stated to the last:--It is satisfied
with $1 or $2 and pays the difference for Cottonseed.
This is THE COTTON SEED MARKET PLACE. It deserves your support.
It deserves the preference on every ton Cottonseed you handle-- For the
simple reason that it made it possible for you to get the VALUE of your
Cottonseed in dollars and cents; it has done for you and is doing a service
of inestimable volue; it is putting money in your pockets.
So far, prices have ranged from $22 to $26, your neaaest Oil Mill assured
you all the time they were only worth $18-find aome few even had the
temerty to say $15. Cottonseed may be worth $30 ere long and then they
will tell you that they are losing money, that $22 or $24 is all they are
worth-This is the SHOP to pin your faith to--whenever we'll be losing
money, it'll be because we are not buying-and when we are, we won't
hold out $6 to $10 on you just because may be we could-Tne Liberaly
square deal, all cottonseed can bring-NEW BLOOD, Bright, Breezy,
Bellicose, and Aggressive.
Call us or wire us at our expense. Doe't rest until your Cottonseed is on
the way here-The BEST in price and service will be your return,

To the Voters of the City of
Opelousas and Bellevue
Ward, La.
Permit me, please, in
launching my candidacy for
the City Judgship, to remind
you forceably to my ardent
devotion to democratic prin
ciples and unswerving fealty
to the democratic party. Ever
since I cast my maiden vote, of
my strict honesty of purpose,
rigid integrity and commenda
ble fidelity to duty during my
entire career, as a private cit
izen.
My life spent here since my
birth has been an open book,
without a single blot, however
insignificant to mar, any of its
pages, in the slightest degree.
No one has, because he can
not question my sober judg
ment or taken exception, to
my fitness for the position I
seek because I admittedly pos
sess all the requisite qualities
and qualifications required.
I am appealing for your fa
vorable consideration strictly
on my own merits, playing
properly in my own yard, and
flying discreetly my own kite,
speaking figuratively, disin
clined exceedingly to back, in
the glamor of any one clic, I
freely confess, that my, candi
dacy is born of an ardent de
sire.for the City Judgeship as
much as the wish of my friends
to have me sit in judgment
over our community the dif
ferences, indiscretions and
misdeeds of its citizenry.
I am tendering but a single
pledge, to exercise keen judg
ment in every instance, to dis
pense with an even hand, to
neither favor a friend unjustly
nor antagonize a foe without
warrant, but in every conceiv
able way reflect infinite credit
upon both the office and my
self. *
Cananyone desire or ex
pect more? Should anyone
be content with less?
Those who know me well,
I feel-·onfident will rally to my
suppo , without persuasion or
coerci n; to those however
who are less familiar with the
history of my life's good work,
of whth I have undeniably
just cause to be proud, I must
and do render, emphatic as
surance, that they will have
absolutely no reason, what
ever to regret their action in
enabling me, by contributing
to my election with their votes
to make a record during my in
cumbency of the City Judg
ship as pure and spotless, as
the driven snow.
I am
Yours very respecfully,
GUS E. DUPRE.
