He sa There is every indication that the foi Louisiana State Fair Association's he efforts for the establishment and op)- $, eration of a State Fair here this fall of and every succeeding fall, are going ac to ble very successful. pe SEver since actual preliminary work in was commenced nothing but encour- it agement has been met with. and the la management has been given the most Il satisfactory kind of assurances that m; powerful assistance is going to be th furnished from many of the parishes at in the State to aid the repre.entatives at of the Fair in accomplishing what! e they first intended--the operation of a sl successful Fair, which will mean the W] advertisement and advancement every m year of Louisiana's many products fa and resources. di I ommlttees have been at work sev- y. eral weeks and the result of their la- w bors are going to mean that the vis- a. itors to the Fair will be treated` to un- c' usual sights and pleasurs. All of the fa officers, directors, committeemen and c' others representing the association tl are interested and the manner in which they have participated in the prelimin- o aries is considered an evidence that el the people here realize the benefits to el be reaped from the exhibition. One b of the most vigorous workers of all is P ( Colonel Charles Schuler, Commission- " er of Agriculture, whose efforts to a s very large extent were responsible for g the assistance furnished by the Gener- P ' al Assembly in appropriating $15,000 b for an exhibition hall and the premi- f; ums for agricultural exhibits. Col- r onel Schuler, while in the city recently was as enthusiastic as ever and said c She was confident the Fair would be a 'big success. From all over the State there have P neen reports of activity. Parishes , that never before formed fair associ 'ations will have exhibits here, to com p pete for the handsome prizes to be i awarded. Big planters, representa tives of the mineral concerns in the I State. superintendents of parish fairs. t land other influential men have ex Ipressed a willingness and desire toi 1 help the Fair Association, and these different indications of interest in 6 nearly every section of the State have . removed any possibility of doubt that! 0j the Fair is to be a great event for[ p Louisiana. * - * .l2 a () ij C nother Rice Planter Gels Enough From HIls ('rop to Pay All Ex i)enses, Pay for Land and Leave a Neat Margin. A. T. Jones, our popular feed store roprietor, who also is somewhat of a and owner and rice planter, threshed orty acres of rice last week, which ielded him 513n sack: of numher onef londiuras rice making practically 13 acks nor acre. Mr. Jones has not :old this rice vet, prefering to hold it or better prices, but at present values ie would have no ditliculty in realizingt 4.25 per sack or $2,180 for the rice off )f 41) acres, an average of over $54 per tere. Hie estimates that it costs $15; )er acre to make a crop of rice leav ng a cleargain of $39 per acre. When it is taken into consideration that the and upon which this crop trew, was 4 purchased last Spring for approxi nately $35 per acre, it will seem that the crop made itself, paid for the land and still left a clear gain of more per acre than the average Northern farm Pr gains on the land he farms. It should further be born in mind that while this 40 acres in itself would make a nice showing for a season's farming, yet Mr. Jones has some hun dred and fifty acres more which will yield as good or better than that which he has already threshed And also that this is not an exceptional case but-that there are hundreds of farmers throughout the rice belt whose crop will make them as much or more than this one has made. Compare, if you please the profits of the rice farmer with those of farm ers in other sections. The Ohio farm er raises an average of perhaps (60 bushels of corn per acre, and at 40k per bushel realize $24 an acre. The 4 wheat raisers of Kansas make 20 bu shels of wheat per acre and this year gets about (60 cents per bushel or $12 per acre for his crop. It is easy to be seen that the net profit of the rice farmer is from 2 to 4 times the gross receiptof the producer of othercereals. P. S.: Since writing the above, Mr. Jones has disposed of his rice re ceiving $4.40 per sack, instead of $4.25. NOTICG. Go to Benoit Bros. for 1Holly Wreath Flour. The Harvest Home Social Friday Even ing, The Success of The Season. The Ladies Aid Society of the Meth odist church, gave a Harvest Home supper and social Friday night. The skating rink which served as a dining hall was tastefully decorated with the fruits of the harvest, including rice, corn, squashes, pumpkins and sundry other products of the field. Suspend I ed from the center of the ball by dark Sred ribbon was the ''Horn of plenty" I overflowing with the good things of the land. Underneath this was a large dining table in center of which was I tastefully arranged a w'vr on loaded with rice upon which war, "ated small darkies, the wholP Lc i._ ura,'% by a span of fine ur.,. horses. This of * course representing the last of the harvest. Other tables were decorated with the harvest of green and in vari ous other ways. The supper was a sumptuous one consistinl of French rice, fried chick en, baked beans, sandwiches, pickles, olives andl numerous kinds of pie and cake, with the traditional cup of coffee --cream and cake were also served. The supper was a decided success. and although the ladies labored under a disadvantage of having to divide the crowd with the Minstral show, yet they succeed in disposing of practic ally all they had. It is reported that Sthey cleared about fifty dollars on the I evening. PHQNB NO.7. Ib Sle M be;s Rigs of All Kinds, With or Without SDrivers. GIVE ME A CALL. CHAS. DAUTEL.
