the inspection of the schools of
the Parish, and in a pleasing man
ner but with an accuracy of facts
and strong arguments, he pointed
out a number of matters looking
to the improvement of the schools.
His arguments were along the
line of a better system of financ
ing the schools in the matter of
special school taxes, consolidation
of country schools, longer terms,
better teachers, and longer tenure
of office by teachers in the same
community.

"Waste Not-Want Not."''
Strange as it may seem, a very
:rge part of one of the choif
.oducts of Southern farms is an
ually wasted trough careless or
;norant handling. We refer to
*.ieat--our great hog crop.
There never was a time when
the practice Ut real economIIy andl
the prevention of unnecessary
waste were so important as now.
Money is scarce, all feedstuff
are high priced, and the new era
of growing other crops in place
of cotton dictates the saving of
more sow pigs than usual.
We propose to give a few of the
best practical precautions against
meat waste.
Weather Waste is the most com
mon and inexcusable. Thous
ands of farmers go to the trouble
and expense of bringing hogs up
to the slaughter state and then
let them eat up all possible profit
because of supposed dependence
upon weather conditions for kill
ing, Many others lose large
quantities of meat in the process
of curing because of lack of pro
tection against unexpected warm
weather. We remember a case
where over one hundi Ad thousand
pounds of meat was rained in a
single season in one Georgia
county through this cause.
The important fact is that the
business packer kills every day
in the year-in July the same as
December- irrespective of tem
perature. Refrigeration-ice--is
the solution.
In Florida every local ice plant
providss a cold sterage room, to
which farmers carry their fresh
meat and leave for four weeks at
a fixed charge of 1 cent per
pound. This is the ideal ar
rangement where farm cold tor
age is not feasible.
Ice, however, is available every
where and offers perfect protec
tion. Its use is simple. Kill
and cut in the usual way. Af
ter twenty-four hours' cooling
put a layer of broken pieces of
ice-from two to five pounds
each-in the bottom of a box or
bin in a corner of the smokehouse.
Cover with a layer of meat, then
more ice till all the meat is pack
ed between layers of ice. Cover
with paper or blankets and leave
till the ice is all melted, Then
wipe the meat dry and salt the
same as though no ice had been
used.
.The action is simiple. Heat
aids decay. Fresh meat is warm
from aninal heat. Ice removes
this heat and thereby takes away
the primary cause for spoiling.
Under average conditions a
half pound of ice for every pound
of meat is sufficient.
Curing Waste sets in during
the subsequent curing process.
Salt is the universal preservative
rrd the lack of proper use of this
oommon article is surprisingly
1 equent.
The secret is to get the salt to
the point of danger. The bone
retains heat longer than does the
meat., It is, therefore, at the
bone, particularly the joints, that
trouble starts. Salt, plenty of
salt, more salt, is the remedy. It
is particularly important that the
salt reaches the joints. Inserting
salt in a hole made with a knife
point thrust into the joint is sure
protection. More effective and
convepient is the salt syringe
frequently advertised in the Ru -
raliet.
'{he meat should not only be
packed in salt, but all air spaces
between the pieces must be filled
witli salt. Ham should be pack.
ed first and the asides form the
top of the saltel pile in box or bin,
with a complete cover of salt
over all. Three or four weeks
should be allowed for takia salt.
Then open on a cool day and
rinse off thesalt by dipping each
piece in'hot water. When wiped
dry the mektls ready for smok
ing.
T1nsect Waste ocours after the
smoking stops. The simplest ef
fective protection we know is the
covering of each piece of meat
with a thick paste made of flour
Sad *pup made strong with
ground black peper. The latter
repels flies and the dried last'
makes a haid covering through
whlich fly eggs cannot be de
posited.
Borax and other suhstanc's
found effective usually interilele
with the quality of the cured
meat.

approval of Lower lhouse.
anshington, JIan. 7.---The im -
mIiOrIatioIn bill was sent to Q:ºn
tference late today by the Ihouse
after it had registered its dis;ip
proval of Senate amendments
barring "eminbers of the African
or black race" and exempting
agricultural immigrants l'Iur
Belgium from literaey test and(
the c' intrac t imin igr;iti ii pro
ViSi On S.
Both these amendments caused
protIracted debate. Most southern
miembers favored retention of the
negro amendment, but others
suggested that to press it might
mean final defeat of the eni
tire bill. Northern replresentatives
generally opposed the provision.
After an extended debate a roll
call showed a vote of 152 to 75
against it.
The Belgian exception was de.
feated without decision, after
several efforts to alter its pro
visions had been voted down.
Representative Cullop prqposedl
to broaden the exception to ad
mit not only farmers but indust
rial workers frorm Belgium. Rep.
resentative Gallagher suggested
inclusion also of farmers from
Poland.
The Senate amendment to ex
clude all persons of "constitu
tional psychopathic inferiority,
and persons with chronic alco
holism," was accepted.
Much of today's debate was
against the literacy test, opposed
by President Wilson dlespite the
fact that it already has been
agreed on by both houses. Rep
resentative Gallivan made an ef
fort to secure another vote on
the test provision, but was ruled
out of order.
A NEIW CROP.
Washington Parish Farmers Have
Good Prospects Thru Dried
Beans.
Following is a copy of a letter
of inquiry from Inunatus Grass
t Co., 268-269 West St., New
York, to Hon. Harry D. Wilson,
of Roseland, La., and which Mr.
Wilson forwarded to this otfice
believing our soil to be specially
adopted to the cultivation of the
bean. We .elieve the growing
of the Beans would be quite
profitable to our farmers as it is
estimated that from 15 to 20
bushels per acre can be produc
ed either before or after some
other crop. As the bean is a
legume and Ielps to build up the
soil we are sure this can be made
one of our most profitable ci-ops
and it is hoped that our farmers
will look well into this matter and
see if it will not open up a new
business for them.
Hon Harry D. Wilson,
Roseland, La.,
Dear Sir:
Please let us know by
return mail which part of your
State is most advantageous foir
the growing of the variety of

emrs of dried beaas that have al

with success. As we are readly
to sign a contrart for the grow
ing of a large quantity of these
varieties of Heans provided. We
