I e financial possibilities in n culture in Louisiana are Dated by the fact that from f parish alone pecans to the t out of about one million dol- t were sold last season. These f re from seedlings that grow t din the well-drained alluvial s. Had these trees been graft- t or budded varieties of the Sch. f ,Stuart, or Success, the mono return would have been much ater, according to B. Szymon- . , associate horticulturist, Ex sion Division, Louisiana State I diversity. a "Every farmer in Louisiana ' uld make a practice of setting I t a certain number of budded i n trees every year," says Mr. t ymoniak. "Heretofore, a great I istake has been made in plant- I seedling trees or buying from s reliable nurseries trees that C supposed to have been graft. f but which, twenty years later d to be seedlings.

Fvery one should have a nice flock of chickens on the yard, one breed preferable. The best way to get this flock is to raise them from good eggs which can be got ten from reliable breeders. It will be late for hatching after this month, so anyone that ex pects to raise good thrifty chicks should get the eggs either in a good incubator or under good old mother hen at an early date. Now for the care of the chicks. It is an old time idea that chicks should be fed as soon as hatched, This is a good way of killing them. The little chick just before break. iog the shell absorbs the last of the yolk so it doesn't need any kind of food for at least two days. The first feed should be coarse sand and clear water. The little chick needs the grit to grind its food. The best feed for baby chicks is rolled oats, dry bread crumbs, hardboiled eggs, clabber, and plenty of clean water. Clabber makes them feather out quicker and helps to kill white diarrhea germs if there are any existing in the chick's system. Will give preventative for white diarrhea next week. Martha Crouse, Parish Home Dem. Agent. Better Cooking Reduces High Cost Of Living. It is commonly remarked by those who study the living condi tions of people of limited means in different parts of this country that, for substantial Improvement of their household economics, I housewives must be informed as to the high nutritive value of the cheaper foods as compared with the costlier kinds, and the method of cooking must be improved. A great deal of fuel is wasted in the preparation of food and even then a great deal is badly cooked, says home economic spe. cialists in the Uuited States De partment of Agricultdure. To re place dear food badly cooked by cheaper food well cooked is im portant for both health and purse. To make the table more attractive is an efficient means of making the home life more enjoyable.

The 650,000 American investors who directly own railway stocks and the million of thrifty citizens who have their savings in banks and insurance companies invest ed in railroad stocks and bonds, are not guaranteed against loss by the new railroad law, but they are assured of a large measure of protection. A careful reading of the Cum mine-Esch Bill makes it plain that it is the purpose of Congress to encourage the investment of new railroad capital by giving a fair deal to the nearly $20,000,000. 000 of capital that has thus far been devoted to the upbuilding of our transportation system. Hundreds of millions-yes bil lions-of new funds must be put into railroad building if our in dustral growth is not to be stunted by a failure to provide adequate transportation facilities. This new capital can come only from the savings of thrifty invest ors and these savings can be attracteed only by making rail. road investments attractive. There is no Alladin's lamp that can be rubbed to bring forth the dollars needed to build railroads. Bankers have no magic touch whereby they can bring dollars out of their vaults for the devel opment of the country. Banking institutions are merely a part of the machinery whereby the say. ings of million of people are col. leoted for the upbuilding of the country. If the new law makes it possible to provide this flow of new capi. tal for railroad upbuilding it will be one of the most constructive measures ever placed upon the statute books. The railroad industry today 'is I not self-supporting, because two I years of government control has resulted in an increase in expenses far beyond the increase in reven ues The increased cost of oper ation is very largely the result of the great rise in prices for labor and materials. The first task of the Government.under the new railroad law will be to readjust railroad rates to provide for this increased cost so that the rail roads will be self-supporting. Until they are self.supporting, it will not be possible to attract new investment capital for them.

On the average farm fruit constitutes only about 6 per cent in value of all food consumed. This percentage could be incoreas ed to good advantage, making fruit a more important part of the diet, says the United States De partment of Agriculture. Many farmsteads include fruit trees and grape arbors as a part of the planting scheme around the dwelling. A small area of the farm devoted to apple trees, peach trees, berry plants, or other fruit suited to the region, is a good investment for any farmer. About two-thirds of the fruit con. sumed. by the average farm fam ily is produced on the home farm.
