Farmers Urged to Raise Hogs. lni
Bastrop.-A large assemlbly of cii- O
izens greeted ('ongresslman J. E. b
Ransdell and other speake(r; in their th
campaign of "hog anti hominy," en
drainage, diversification of crops and fte
eradication of the boil weevil. Pt'- th
pie came by 'train and in buggies a he
distance of sixteen to eighteen miles vi
from Mer Rouge, Oak Ridge, Bonita wl
and ('ollinston. This tieeting will
unquestionably be productive of muchll ca
good to the farminlg inleiests of this
The meeting was pre.,ided over by h
Dr. W. R. Russell of Oak Ridge, who hd
introduced the speakers. The hours
of the meeting in the forenoon were
from 10 to 1U and the afternoon from a
2 to 5. llMr. Ranadell handled the B
qluestlon of hog and hlininy in an
able and convincing mlanner, showing
It had been Inquired into. uirging the
farmers to so conduct titeir farm.s
as to produce their ownI hams at 6
to 8 cents, Instead of paying 18 to
o20 (ents, and their treaklasl bacon L
at 8 to 10 cents, insie':d of paying o0

He stated that ioIther earth never ti
r'ears out, but it take, diversitica- tI
tion yearly to make it productive to n
its full extent, giving staristics show- F
ing that while down south Ilands pro- g
duce an average of 13 1-2 bushels of 9
r'heat per a,'re, in England and Ger- r
many, after continual cultivation of a
2,1100 years, it yet produces 21 and c
:'0 bushels, respectively, denoustrat- a
ing that all live fromnt earth produc- t
1ion and that the formation of the c
sustenance of life for every human t
being comes front the :soil.

If the mistaken idea weret- true tlhat 't

now at 7 1-2 cents in 'Sew Orieans.
He then a;skedtl, "Does that pay?" He
does not advocate abolitiota of cotton
raising, but of less coteon and more
ctorn and other commodities. He i
closed with an appeal to reduce alle
giance to "King Cotton" and give
mnore to cattle and corn iraising and
to "King Hog anid IHomniny."

Trying to Locate t':e Lord.
Baton Rougo.--Which side is the a
Lord on? This has be'lln the subject 1
of considerabtle debate amlong a por
tion of the *'eligious ncguro popula
tion of Baton Rouge, as a result of o
the severe storm whict destroyed g
nearly every negro church in Baton j
Rouge, only a very few' negro reli
gious edifices being lelt- standing
when the sun rose after t ie gulf hur
ricane. Some of the faithful of the
more fortunate co;ngregations de
clared promptly that ti.> Lord was
on their side, and as an evidence of
this they point to the f:act that their 1
church was not blown down, while I
that of the congregation in the next
block was. The cha!lente was taken I
up by those who had their churches ,
't destroyed, and the latt.:tr are decid- i
edly in the majority. They report
that the two congregations whose
1 churches were not (ltl roved were
l too small to be noticed b,- the Lord.
Held "Hog and Hominy" Rally.
Eros.-There was quite :n large au
e dience of farmers from the surround
e ing country in attendance at the ag
ricultural meeting in this city. The
e meeting was called to order and Dr.
d .I. H. Landrum chosen as chairman.
Making a few remarks, he first in
troduced J. E. Ransdell, who made a
practical address which completely
y captivated the farmers, and he wa
e roundly cheered when he closed. iHe
e asked the farmers to make "Hog and
n hominy" their slogan. W. F. Ward
y delivered a talk on the hog in Lou
i- isiana. He showed that hogs could
;t be raised in this state practically for
ld less than cents per pound, and they
a- were now quoted in the Fort Worth
tf market at 8.40. His figures were a
revelation to the farmers.
Plan to Destroy Cotton Stalks.
s5 Baton Rouge.-The state crop pest
d- commission is pushing its cotton

if. publication of another bulletin on
it, this subject advising the farmers
1f- how to make and use a cotton stalk

,r- the minimum the cost of cleaning
he the fields and simplifies to a great
I, extent the necessary work. This
re cutter is built out of a few pieces of
