Dr. Brock was the youngest son of Valentine Brock a pioneer citizen of Washington Parish, ti and succeded to the old B:rock a home where he lived his entire life, amassed a splendid con petency and raised a large c famuily, o fe sides having one of the most profitable farms in the par ish Dr. Brock was a physician with a large practice which he enjoyed for thirty-five years. The practice of medicine lead him into all the homes within ae radius of many miles and being of a jovial as well as a sympa thetic and indersltanding disp. sition, he made friends of the whole countryside and his great popularity and the esteem ing which he and his family were held was attested by the throneg of 800 or 900 people, who gather- ' ed at the old home on Thursday to attend the funeral services, He is survived by a wife, Mrs. Arvia Holmes Brock and seven children, Dr. J. L. Brock our much loved and faithful physi cian atFranklinton, Dr. D. T. Brock who is a practicing phv sician in McComb, Miss., and Hobson a 13 year old son, who is in school in McComb, Mrs. Jas.

Pall bearers were J. N. Sim mons, N. A. Alford, Willis Brum fIeld and Newt McElveen, all life long friends and neighbors. Dr. Bruck had accepted his af fliction in the sweetest possible ,lirit and a short time before his death had expressed himself a ple'fectly resigned and ready to aN at the Masters call. Notes From Our Farm Demonstration Agent 1 W. H. HUMBLE. Our Motto: "Get In Love With Your Farm." a N .' is the time to do your fall (I bre Hne, provided your clay is F dry at the time of breaking, plow ci as deep as you can if you are e: using a disc breaker, but if you tl are using an ordinary turning T plow break about two inches a deeper than you did when you s last broke your land. g If you have a good crop of tl green vegetation to turn under w it will help your land very much. p; Be certain to plant a cover crop ti on all lands turned this fall. i Don't Plant any crop on lands ti turned this fall for at least two eý weeks after turning. is Oats planted this fall will be w worth $6.00 per acre as a grazing of proposition. N Mr. Farmer, if you don't own w a disc breaker, now is a good he time to buy one and use it. vi Turn under half your bean tl land as soon as possible and w plant the land in oats; you will c< have good grazing for your stock pl when your beans are gone. ai Fall planted oats will keep bi hogs in good shape, Try it, fc Every acre planted in cotton p: this year should be planted in w oats or some winter clover. Try ti an acre in clover. ti Do you want your land ter- w raced or side hill ditches put in? w I will be pleased to help you at a any time. w All farmers in this parish who el have planted lespedeza are high- of ly pleased with results. Try of some next spring. tl If you expect to plant lespe- c deza next spring now is the time k to buy your seed. I can tell you si where to buy it at the least cost. vi if your hogs, horses or cattle S are sick let me hear about it. I si will help you get them nurel. w I iuoculatod 73 hogs last wveek. Bettor have yours inocui iteJ be- n fore they get cholera. In,,cul;- cl tiOn in time is the only peveint- b ative. i Here is the best hog medicine r in the world: Four bushels char- g coal, one bushel of oak or hick- o ory ashes, one peck of salt and d two pounds of co)yel'as, Put the charcoal into a box; mix the ashes, salt and copperar well, pour over the coal and shake the boy until it is well mixed, then a knock a strip off the box large li enough for a hog to get his nose b into at bottom of box; place the t] box under cover. I The prices given on cottonseed s products in last week's farm I notes were copied from the Pro gressive Farmer. I omitted to give the paper credit for snme. At the time the statemement ( was made such prices prevailed; since, the qrices have dropped a t little. I stand by the statement. I am not after the man who buys cotton seed or anyone else. I am trying to post the farmers as to what their stuff is worth. Any seed buyer who is a mer chant knows it's to his advantage to pay the best possible prices for seed. If a customer owes $20 and he gets $20 for tiis seed he pays all his debt; if he gets $16 he don't pay all; if he owes i nothing he can spend $20 if he I gets that price. Mr. cotton seed buyer, if you are a merchant, get out your in voices and see what you pay the mills for meal, hulls and oil. Figure it up and see if I have made a mistake.

SRepresenting American Ladies Tailoring Co., of Chicago, Ill. il Fair Notes. To-day (Thursday) exhibits are being placed in position at the Fair Grounds; to-morrow I (priday), the real opening of the Fair will occur by a grand pro cession composed of volunteers escorting the grand choristers, Sthe officers and the speakers. This procession will form im mediately on arrival of the special train arriving from Bo galusa, say about 8:30 a. m. A thousand United States flags will be distributed among the paraders who will march under the leadership of the Grand Marshall to the grand stand on the Fair Grounds where the sev eral anthems will be sung by the immense throng of singers which have gathered from all over the Parish of Washington. Nothing like it has ever been witnessed here before. It is hoped that fair weather will pVe vail. The publicity agent states that he thinks a record crow'd will be here that day; that ar commodations for all will be am ple and that food especially eggs and chickens, In sufficiency will be at hand. The new building for the women has been com pleted and a rest room for the weary provided. It is expected that none will fail to be cheerful that day; that all business places will be decorated, that stores '.will be closed from 9 a. m t 4 p m.; and that the visiting public will put up with any inconveni ence they may suffer on accoun' of any apparent short-coming ini our preparations to entertain them.
