progressive candidate for vice presi- iey dlent for vice president, dehix, red an ur address in New York at a ,eception nd given him by members of the national re progressive party, in which he dwelt somewhat at length on the part taken by Theodore Roosevelt and George W. Perkins in their efforts to get the pro gressive and republican conventions i ev Chicago last June to unite on a pres- ef idential candidate. Mr. Parker quoted u Mr. Roosevelt as saying in 1913 that er "I am for this cause to fight to the end * * * while life lasts," andwelt that "I will never abandon the prini- taken plea to which we progressives have ic1 pledged ourselves and I will neve W. abandon the men and women who drew around me to battle unior these princ ples." h He also quoted George W. Perkinq e as stating he was opposed to return ing to the republican party because it had been "more reacti'onary that ever." "The statement of our leader," Mr. o Parker continued, "and the concur-ip rence of the chairman of our executive jo committee were accepted at par byneve abandotrusting body of men and women who drew who implicitly believed in our leaders i The tragedy of the great gathering at arhicago from June 7 to June 10, in-ci clusive is a matter of history." Mr. Parker said that he had infor mation that every move in the pro gressive party was approved by Col onel Roosevelt over the telephone. Aso a member of the committee on conur ference, he said, when a request was'o prcommitented y Mr. Perkins from Col. a toosting tbody he of ame of Henry th d ot I < ½, s, -ug,.tsted for pres- b who implicitly blievy declined to beaders a messenger to carry any suggestions e to the republican committee, as In recognized the right of no man to turn Mr. Parover and soul to those same c Aean wol'es against whom life- i mation thican had rvolted in 1912."the pro The pledged word of honor of the leaders he said, "were mere scraps of paper and practically show that polit ical honor is as little regarded as the peace treaty of nations." He accepted the nomination Mr. reognize d, wth the certainty that it .,sover~ to nothub politically ex ,t a "harge volume of both ridicule *-.! vituperation." He realized, he .id, that if he declined the nomina tion it woupledge thouht hoe was "a party to the betrayal of the princi ples" that brought the progressive couvention together. "I am not a t," Mr. Parker u t, the thasks of this due to Woodrow Wilson for he I ac complished in the shape - eressive legitslation that has untolt millions, happiness awl prosperity to our people." STS He praised the establishment of the TO regioTal banks as "one of the great- oTI • ,--ru'tive pieces of legislation ucat ih : . y of the nation, and de- infit * t;lý commerce and industry cult riv.a, as never before. the " o not claim that these results and to the rrogressive party and "~it progressive part ,.Lrry and pro- etc. e a! out, and to be ,t. m at p.ice with all the I -. :rged .very progle:sve oth tbe: tcket In etates wher tiri It ... one. p'r .h, .( i . cut t'"'. q c gre ievoted to their family andi their fu" Th ure to vote their honest convictionI da nd support Woudrow Wilson for ,resident of the United!

Nesom. of I uperintendent of live stock extension ch ervice, L. S. U. This is evidenced of y the fact that during the month of u i \ugust 264,000 head of cattle were ao tipped in the twelve parishes where OIS , ick eradication is in progress. This indicates that there are at least ri < million head of cattle in the state m f Louisiana. The great bulk of hese are common scrub cattle, many si Serds of which are being graded up f " .y the use of pure-bred bulls. Last 't ,ear most of the cattle produced for tý " ale were sold directly off the pastures .nd ranges, and went to other states r. to be grazed and fed for the markets. t, r- he average quality of these cattle was it re ow, and the inexperienced feeder " Y] would have found it difficult to fatten d 'nI them for market at a profit, espcially a 'S where he had to buy any considerable at iuantity of the feed. Those who pro- t ri luced and fed good baby beef and butcher steers generally made fair 1 'r- profits. °- The live stock extension service of 1- L. S. U desires to aid the cattlemen t -s of the state in producing a better class 4 - 'of cattle, and, wherever conditions J as are favorable, to encourage them in o1. feeding at least a part of their pro- I 3r' for the market.
