RED BURLEY TOBACCO.
Mr. John F. Page at Wakefield, La.,
has brought in a sample of Red Burley
tobacco he raised this year on his
place. It is a very pretty color, and
put up in the "Granger's Twist" shape 1
and makes a very attractive tobacco.
Mr. Page is an old tobacco man, having
worked in a factory at Covington, Ky.,
for several years, and he says that
this tobacco has more than met his
expectations here and he proposes to
plant more of it another year. He
only planted a small patch this year
to see how it would do. This is
another crop West Feliciana parish
can grow and as it is one of the most
staple of all American crops, it would
be well for our farmers to look into a
the advisability of planting tobacco
here for the market.

I THE BANK SITUATION.
At last it seems that the Farmers &
Merchants Bank is about to be re
opened. Parties who have been active
in the movement to make the bank a
going concern again have secured the
signatures of a large majority of in
terested persons to a petition to the
State Examiner of State Banks asking
that the affairs of the bank be taken
out of the hands of the liquidator and
turned over to the officers and directors
of the bank.
State Examiner of State Banks W.
L. Young has been communicated with,
' and asked to come here at his earliest
convenience. When Mr. Young reaches
here it is thought there will be no
trouble in convincing him that the in
terest of all parties concerned will be
best conserved by a re-opening of the
bank and that he will consent to this
ST. MATTHEW, 18:21.35.
Then came Peter to him, and said,
Lord, how oft shall my brother sin
s against me, and I forgive him? till
3 seven times?
Jesus saith unto him, I say not unto
3 thee, Until seven times: but, Until
' seventy times seven.
Therefore is the kingdom of heaven
likened unto a certain king, which
would take account of his servants.
And when he had begun to reckon,
one was brought unto him, which owed
him ten thousand talents.
But forasmuch as he had not to pay,
t his lord commanded him to be sold,
and his wife, and children, and all that
I he had, and payment to be made.
The servant therefore fell down, and
worshipped him, saying, Lord, have
patience with me, and I will pay thee
Then the lord of that servant was I
moved with compassion, and loosed I
him, and forgave him the debt. 1
But the same servant went out, and
found one of his fellow-servants, which
owed him an hundred pence: and he I
laid hands on him, and took him by
the throat, saying, Pay me that thou
And his fellow-servant fell down at I
his feet, and besought him, saying,
Have patience with me, and I will pay 1
And he would not: but went and t
cast him into prison, till he should pay I
So when his fellow-servants saw I
what was done, they were very sorry, ,
and came and told unto their lord all t
that was done.
Then his lord, after that he had call- c
ed him, said unto him, O thou wicked I
servant, I forgave thee all that debt,
because thou desiredst me: '
Shouldest not thou also have had I
compassion on thy fellow-servant, even e
as I had pity on thee?
And his lord was wroth, and deliver- 1
ed him to the tormentors, till he should i
pay all that was due unto him.
So likewise shall my heavenly Father a
do also unto you, if ye from your o
hearts forgive not every one his broth
er their trespasses.

I note with satisfaction that Orlean
ians have fixed a day for advertising
the Louisiana orange. I have dealt in
lands in various parts of the country
for twenty years, and about three
years ago I was attracted to Louisiana
for this purpose. I had never until
then heard that Louisiana raised
oranges or grapefruit. After coming
here, I found that this state produces,
in my opinion, a better orange and
grapefruit than either California or
I made an investment in orange
lands, and began to investigate what
the people of Louisiana and New Or
leans were doing to advertise this in
dustry. I was at that time stopping at
one of the leading hotels of this city.
I noticed that this hotel was serving
very delightful oranges and grapefruit,
and asked the waiter where it was
grown. He did not know. I called the
head waiter, who thought 'they were
raised in Louisiana. I picked up the
bill of fare and saw on it "oranges and
grapefruit," but nothing to indicate
that they were grown in Louisiana. I
made it a business to take my meals
for the next few days at different
hotels and cafes, but at that time I
did not find a single hotel or cafe in
the city that had anything on their
bill of are to indicate that their

VENTILATE 81LO BEFORE
Since 1875, when the first American
silo was built by Dr. Manley Miles,
this method of preserving forage for
livestock has been generally adopted. ,
Although the Department of Agricul
ture has frequently called attention to 1
the danger of carbon dioxid gas ac
cumulating in silos under certain con- *
ditions, no fatalities have been report
ed until the morning of September 19, 1
when four workmen on the farm of the 4
Athens (Ohio) State Hospital, ascend
ed the ladder on the outside of a silo
to an open door about twelve feet from
the top and Jumped down one after
another onto the sisag the top of I
which was about six feet below the
door. About five minutes after, two
othe'r workmen following them found
them unconscious. Although a large
force of workmen were immediately
summoned and the bodies of the four
men removed at once through a lower
door, the physicians of the hospital
who were at once on the ground were
unable to resuscitate any of the four
men. Evidently the carbon dioxid gas
had accumulated during the night, ill
Ing the silo up to the level of the door
and forming a layer of 'carbon dioxid
gas six feet deep. Such accidents,
says The Journal, of the American
Medical Association, might easily be
repeated on any modern farm. Agri
culture Journals should call the atten
tion of the farmers to this danger and
should urge that silos be carefully
ventilated before entering.
THE KNOCKER'8 REWARD.
(The Country Gentleman.)
When the English army began to
buy horses a Welsh stockman, wishing
to keep a certain favored animal, in
structed his stableman to tell the off
cers that this horse was a very bad
actor, likely to kick, and otherwise un
manageable. Thq buyers came and
heard the description. Then they gave
the horse a sepond examination and
took him-docking the owner ten
pounds on the price because of the
faults he had himself alleged.
Occasionally we find farmers who
are prone to disparage their own com
munities and to attribute their lack of
greater success to poor soil, unfavor
able climate, distant markets, and the
like. Then when the time comes to sell
out they are in a iretty fix, because
their depreciatory attitude decidedly
cuts prices. The grumbler who holds
a public sale is very likely to discover
too late that his neighbors have taken
himn at his word.
When there comes a time of settle
ment the habits of boosting and of run
ning down a community are equally
disastrous. There are sections that
are avoided merely because they have
bad names--bad names that may be
traced indirectly to the attitude of the
There is danger of reaction after a
boom, but the community that depre
ciates its worth is likely td be valued
If somebody hadn~t the courage to be
stupid now and then, the world would
be a terribly dull place.
