Much, disappointment was felt be cause the film exchange had not sent the William Farnum picture "The End of the Trail", but instead had sent "An American Gentleman." The comics interested the kids, how ever. It is planned to give weekly shows Qii Sunday nights, beginning probably in October, throughout the winter sea Herb. Schad manipulated the ma chine, and A! Haynes provided die "juifce." Ne charge is made to colonists. Mrs. Gregory, who is visiting the Dougherty's, presented the show last night; and the regular programs will begin as stated above. THE COLONY DIARY (Contjnued from page 1) silo. It will be on its permanent location by tonight. Another neighbor ing farmer came in and bargained for a -40 acres of our land. After tbs deal was closed, I showed him arounu the place, and after seeing how we co operated in making syrup, hauling cane and pulp, and finely ground the refuse up in the silo, he said, "it seems to me all we farmers should go to gether and own our own mills and machinery and work them together on your plan." He sees the light; that is just what they should do, and-we are here to 'point the way. Farmers,' we want you t# get the idea, own your own tools, and use them too, Do it co-operatively as we are doing, or co operate with us. DeBoer and Caron must have so many shoes they cannot bring them home; they haven't come back from Fullerton yet. Al Satnan some busy man these days. He mends Fords, does the blacksmithing, is the plumber, runs the hotel pump, and takes care of the steam boiler, and runs the eng.nes that are connect ed with the steam boiler. Dad Thom as is on his old job at the laundry and manages to keep his sore fingers out of bad places. The usual Sat. even ing dance was enjoyed by the colon ists and by a considerable crowd of outsiders. Mr. Ed. Gleason of Lees ville, who used to be at the head of the engineering department in the col ony, visited us yesterday and return ed the colony surveying instruments that he has had in his possession for several months, using them at Lees ville and other places. * * * * * Sunday, Sept. 19th—Yours truly had another work-rest day. Drove 30 miles in my Lizzie" and walked over 120 acres of land, which I expect to sell at once. Also showed a visitor to the Colony a beautiful part of Lou isiana. While on this trip, I invested in the beginning of an alligator farm. Too bad A . A. Stewart is not here to feed the animals. Bot four small gators and the kiddies sure enjoyed the new pets that are ndw located in a swimming pool of their own near the school club house. ***** Monday, Sept. 21st—Everybody on the big jobs we are nt>w doing. Some sawed wood to keep the two boilers running,—Dad Thomas at the laundry boiler and AI Satnan at the'big boiler, that is running the cane mill.. Pete Kemp and Van Nuland finished haul ing the new silo material to its new home at the dairy. We are building a brick foundation for it. Four men are cutting cane. Several persons, in cluding the school children, àçp head ing the cane and running it through the mill, and three men are running the evaporatoj hiaking syrup. Lind sey and three other men and three boys are finishing the filling of silo no. 2. Dad Crawford is busy hauling brick to the dairy after he has deliv ered the bread to Leesville. Comrade Schad has gone into the bakery to learn the trade and help Comrade Schoettle. Fred Hemman is now in the farm crew, where he has wished to be for many weeks. Tuesday, Sept. 21st—The silo no. 2 was finished yesterday and the en silage cutter is being repaired at the machine shop, while the new silo is being built. The cane cutting and hauling wr.s interrupted by a rain this afternoon, and the cane on hand was all ground up by evening. Will Zim merman has been off his job a couple of days, and Baldwin has gone back to his old job of doing three mens* work until relief is offered. We have conscripted many of our workers from the store, offices, schools, print shop, etc., in order to rush the syrup-mak ing; because the brick crew has sev eral large orders for brick, and are anx ious to get thru with the syrup in or der to fill the brick orders. We are f Hing many local orders for brick. We just rcccired an order for brooms from Powell Bros, and filled same. People are patronizing local manufacturers when using things made at the colony, and helping to bring malty new peojîle into the community ae well. Comrade Roedemeister, who recently arrived, is a first class harness maker; and as soon as our crop rush is over ,he will start a harness repair shop. As these is no other one near here, he should get all the work he can handle. The usual card party was held at the hotel and in spite of the rain those attending report a dandy good time. We are looking forward to the big "movie" show Wednesday night. If you fd|l "blue," "No account," lazy you need a good cleaning out. HEROINE is the right thing for that purpose.

COMPANY TO BUY ALL CROPS _L Will Not Attempt To Put Raw Prod uct# On Market—Company Will He-'p Finance Improvements Made On Land. » New Orleans. — Ambitious plans for colonizing cutover long leaf pine land at Elizabeth, La., are being put into operation by the Industrial Lum ber Comptny of that town. The company has holdings of more than one hundred thousand acres of land, with three sawmills, located at Elizabeth and at Oakdale. This dis tricts is in the middle-western part of the sti<8 of Louisiana, in the heart of the long leaf pine section. The plan of operation which the company has prepared is as follows: The land will be sold in blocks of 80 acres on long tim^ payments. This land will be chared of trees and stunr/, leaving only enough wood land on each tract for pasturage. Roads will be built, each tract to face a good highway. The company will help to finance the improvements. Ex pert agricultural advice will be at the service of settlers,' In planning of crops and in caring for th^rn. A feature of the plan which has not accompanied other schemes of coloni zation is that the company will buy all the crops and do the marketing It self. It will not attempt to put the raw products on the market, but has built a potato drying "plant which is already in operation, and promises that caning factories and such other industries as are needed will be built to care for future crops. A recent government report, which representatives of the lumber com pany quote, said that the section around Elizabeth was one of the best in Louisiana or Mississippi. Officials say that the Industrial Lumber Company is firm in announc ing that all possible aid will be given its colonists, the aim throughout be ing to establish a permanent citizen ship, and to make the fertile section the producing territory it should be. The company is bringing its coloni zation scheme before northern people who might becom^ Interested and i3 aruging that the mild climate of the south, plentiful rainfall and nearly all year-round growing season should prove an irresistible appeal to the small land owner and tenant tarmer of the North.
