I was not at the meeting of the 1 Police Jury on the day of the ap- 6 pointment in question but am given to understand that Mr. t Willis was appointed by virtue of his proposition being the cheapest and best for the Parish, and that the name of our fore e most industrial concern was never mentioned on that day. f Why, Mr. "HillBillie" do you e so vehemently condemn the s Great Southern Lumber Co? e They have come to our Parish t without our Parish having to pay them to do so, T have gullty Notice. tion t} shall t Notice is hereby given that than prisor; filed bids for the building of a than c school house for the Hackley both Consolidated School located at A ti Hackley, La., School District No. 21, will be received by the undersigned building committee, on or before May, 7, 1915, the committee reserving the right to receive or reject any and all bids. i 'PlPns and specifications are on file at the office of the garish p SSuperintendent of Education at R FRI Franklinton, La., and with the ic Sabove mentioned Committee at «, Hackley La. pat H.

SThere is a perceptible move in the direction of stock raising. Our climate, soil and natural advantages, generally, being so suitable for this line of industry there is no reason why it could not be done very profitably. Our farmers will be shipping hogs and cattle, of their own raising, in car load lots. The boll-weevil storm has passed over and the wreckage is about cleared away. The train of prosperity is just beginning "to speed up." Now is the time to engage your passage. Now is the time to invest in improved farm properties, and cut over land before the land goes too high. The Union Bank in liquidation is in possession of several farm properties and approximately four thousand acres of cut-over land in diffrent parts of the Parish. The Farmers & Merchants Bank Build ing. the Bank of Franklinton Building, the Peoples Drug Store Building (Doremus property), two idealbusiness lots, several residence lots and eight improved residence properties.
