In dlscussiug the boll weevil problem be seemed surprised tbat tbe people of tbls parish had beard nothing of tbe remedy used by bis people for the past three years with succes. He related to Town Talk tbe following: "We take a barrel containing about fifty gallons of water and place in It twenty oances of crude carbolic acid and stir It with paddle. An old sack is saturated with the mater and hung on a pro jection attached to the plow or cultivator.

and it Is dragged over the rows of cotton. The weevils are not killed by this, but tbey leave for parts unknown. It Is best to have two of the barrels, and place one at each end of the rows. It la sat urated and dragged over the top of the plant to the other end. and then saturated and dragged back over the same row to tbe point of starting, and then the next row Is treated In the same way.

By this method both sides of tbe leaves, bolls, are sprinkled. The water in the barrel should be stirred each time that the sack is dipped In, for the reason that it is difficult to keep the crude carbolic add and the water mixed. This is a very cheap and easily applied remedy, and should be tried by our farmers. It is understood that several who heard Mr. Waters talk on the sub Ject say that they are going to try It right away.

Tbe mixture should be applied after every rain. It can be done while cultivating the cotton, and 110 extra time is required In doing it Call ot tho Whit Collar. Shreveport Times.

Is the attraction of the average wage of fl.S0 for an eight-hour day in the city stronger than the drawing power of f20 month and "keep" for the twelve and fourteen-hour day of the farm? Not that so much as the call of the white callor. All of us are strongly Influenced, even ln momentous matters, by little, unconsidered things. Gaudy uniforms have done more toward turning men Into sol-dlres In all ages than patriotism.

One's work is not all of one's life nor the most of If. If the boy raised in Jeans and gingham and permitted a white collar only on Sundays and holidays comes subconsciously to sssoclate the white collar with ease, enjoyment and respectability, is It not natural? And If he follows tbe lure of the white collar to the city and gets a Job ia which he can wear a white collar all tbe week, and though he spends all his extra pay In keeping his collar and cuffs and shirt white, what does It matter, so long as he Is satisfied? If a white collar can make one feel more a gentleman. It's a mighty good thing. The feeling that one Is living well Is the most to be got from life.

Last year forty-eight parishes made cotton ranging from 4 to 6 per cent of bale to the acre in West Baton Rouge and West eliciaua to 5o per cent in Acadia and Thirty-four parishes reported average of per cent of bale per This year there mas a falling 05 iu tbe acreage planted, and while parishes of North and West Louisiana, which hare recovered from ttie boll weevil, will show better results, the par ishes of fcouth and East Louisiana will show a falling off due tothe weeviL In the production of cort the governmetit report gave the Jrtate over bushels, as cornyired to tbe mruTtA 4 a Ka 1 .1 which latter figure was in excess of the orn production of the preceding year" This year will show an increase rAn corn production. Practically nil i't parishes in the State raised com lf year and will again tbls season.

Eighteen parishes last year reported tbe making of sugar. The returns iu tbl line this season will not be uiuch different. Twenty-live parishes reported a crop of rice lust year, aud there was a large Increase tu tbe acreage planted in this cereal, much of tbe abandoned cotton laud along tbe Mississippi liver lieing son 11 to rice. Tblrty-eigbt parishes grew sweet potatoes, thirty-two grew Irish potatoes; fifteen parishes grew peanuts, twenty-five raised oals, thirty-live reported buy production. Four parishes reported an orange crop and twen-ly-one parishes reported 70,124 acres planted in vegetables.

The development of gravel pits in the parish of West Feliciana, where the gravel is in almost inexhaustible quantities, has made a vast difference lu tbe paving problem in these parts. The gravel, now so easily available. Is highly desirable for surfacing streets aud roads in this city and section, and tbe proximity of the pits lessens ihe cost of transportation. The pits in West Feliciana are touched by the Louisiana Railway and Navigation Company, which passes through this city and which has established facilities for loading gravel at tbe pits. This road has been especially accommodating, and has giveu the city large quantities of gravel for resurfacing the streets, and it Is 1 ow proposed to put gravel on streets adjacent to tbe lxmlsiana Railway and Navigation and Frisco station so as to make a continuous paved route from the depot to the business portion of tbe city.

The opening of these pits has also solved the pobleia of the surfaelug of the model road to the southeast of this city, constructed by convict labor, of which ten miles of the sixteen hare been graded and made ready for the surfacing. During the current summer there has ieen much construction work along railroads entering this city. The kailway and Navigation Hue tietween this city and New Orleans has I ballasted from this city to a point near New Orleans, and the work will be completed by the end of the current year. The Baton Rouge, Hammond and Eastern, between this city and Covin ton has received its ballast, and much ballast has gone over this rond to points along the main line of the Illinois Central. The Yssoo and Mississippi Valley has ballasted extensively at points on Us line.

On the west side of the river the Texas and Pacific and the Southern1 i'acltlc roads hsvc been ballasted with gravel in the same manner as the roads on this side of the river. Fxperts In roadmaklng state that the roods are be ing placed In better shape 'in this section than will be found In other portions of the State. The transfer boats at the Illinois Central-Frisco inclines above this lty and at the Ixuisisiia Railway and Navlgntlnn incline at Angola are kept I'isy with cars of ballast consigned to on the lines. Those who attended the flrst mass meeting bold in the imprest of a new courthouse and J.nll In this city and better roads and drainage In the rural sections, have bten active in their propaganda of this canse both in the city and country and it is expected that the mass meeting called for Tuesday at 11 o'clock will crystallize sentiment for these Improvements. The city has a Ponded debt of r.mie which is amply protected nud proid-d for, nnd which probably will cost the taxpayers nothing, being cared for by additional revenues diverted to Its retirement.

The parish has jaid Itself out of debt so the practicability of the Iwnd issue cannot lie questioned. Conditions in the city iiud psr-ish make it such that the proposed lonJ Ksue run tie largely cared fcr by additional revenues, as in the case of the city's outstanding debt.

Mer Rouse Demwrat.

Next Monday. Aug. 22. there will lie held a meeting in New Orleans, a gattf-ering of the men who disapprove of the State ring control over Louisiana. These men mho will assemble that date are the wen who restored the State to white supremacy, the men who banded together and made the fight that throttled the Louisiana lottery, the men of courage to do anything that will redound to the honor of Louisiana, and whose present meeting is to organise to down the present State ring that has for its head the present Goverr.or and United States Senator.

The time to organize Is opportune and there Is ample time to arrange to give to Louisiana In 1911 a Democratic white primary that can prevent a fraudulent primary election to select two United States Senators, a (kvernor and all State and parish officials, A few cool-headed leaders can meet, discus and map out what must be done to meet and thwart the fraudulent election hat tbe bosses and heelers will attempt to force upon the law-abiding people. There are more good and honest voters In Louisiana than there are dishonest ring men. Organisation restored white supremacy, organization throttled the hydra-headed monster, the Louisiana lottery, and organisation can and will down, defeat and destroy the Sanders ring that now dominates In State and parish election. Next Monday a few good and courageous men will meet In New Orleans to pre pare for organisation to restore Louisiana to honest government. A Conspiracy Asjalnst Oar Political Masters.

Napoleonrille Pioneer. "A conference of all citizens who are opposed to tbe present State admlnlstra tion has been railed and will take place on Ang. 22 at the Grunewald Hotel. In vitations to this conference have been sent to citizens In every parish In the State. The purpose of the conference is not to name candidates, bnt to form an organization, one backed by money and the right kind of mfa.

Times hare certainly changed. Here is a deliberate, cold-blooded conspiracy to drive the present political masters from their thrones, and no one has yet been thrown in Jail, or condemned to He for committing lese majeste. There is no following the footsteps of Cf.ssius and Brutus In this conference no planning in tbe nurbt and no stabbing In the back. Will the political masters continue to hold back their wrath? It cannot be that tbey behold the "Mene, mene. tekel upharsen." tha't struck terror to Belshas-xar?" Are Tow a a Independent a De- peaaert Denaoeratf Richland Democrat.

Tbe Independent Democrats, realizing that it will not be rood to allow the helm of Stat to be piloted by the present Incumbents' for another season, and that the reins of government mast be snatched from "father and his boys." have Issued calls for a meeting to be held In New Orleans, Aug. 22. In order that a movement may be begun. The mala purpose of wftlch Is. or shonld be.

to eradicate the State of the all-powerful political machine that operates her government today. This canse Is championed by the men of the State who value the true sr-Irlt of Democracy more than the political pie. Should tbe Independent Democrats be successful in the marshaling of their army a triumphant return to a government by and for the people will le begun. In order to do this It behooves him w-ho wants voice In the government of his State to affiliate himself with this party. The only means by which a revolution of the politics of onr State can be effected is to Invade the camp of the political ring, make the commissioned dependent Democrats privates, and to lower the flag of the political machine that has caused the political waters of the State to become turbid and grow stagnant.

The political p1 must le hurled headlong lrto oblivlan and a return must be made to Democratic principles. The continuance tf another such administration will make Louisiana politics equivalent to that of Tennessee. "Father and his hoys" have had control of the government long enough, and Its reins must turned over to men lest the thoughtless lads shall swap oar State off for a mess of pottage. Can we afford to see onr State go Into In voluntary bankruptcy Just because she is In the clutches of a political ring? That Is Just what will happen If we have ore administrations like the present one. Michel for Governor.

The city for the past two decades has possessed a belt line which, while once adequate, is entirely inadequate now. Tbe present belt reaches nowhere and serves only the people living in the center of the city An extension of the street car facilities from North Buton Rouee where the man a fncturUig and railroad enterprises are located, to South Baton Rouge, where the majority of the worklngmen reside. and which, although outside of the city limits, has a population of nearly 3UU0, would prove it is lielieved.

A line east and west also is necessary. It it true that some time ago when the street car Interests endeavored to get franchises on some of the principal streets of the city they met with opposition and abandoned their project. It la patent, however, that at this time, any proposition made looking to a better street car line, mill meet with favorable reception. Greenwell Springs, seventeen miles from this city and near the Comlte and Amite rivers, in this parish, are being developed. This place, which was a celebrated watering place In ante-bellum days, has been renovated and a hotel has been opened.

One member of tbr family died of the disease a few days fcco, and. it is said, another brother has the disease, as well as a daughter of tbe latter. Because of fear of contagion, it was a hard task to find anyone to prepare the first victim's bodv for burls 1.

The Henry school has raised remonstrance against any of the farailv being sent to the public schools. NeighlHirhood rumor has It that when a physician was sent to examine the girl, who is said to be so seriously af-fected. snother girl wss substituted for her, while the infected one was hidden. There is great excitement in the vicinity over tbe matter. Iavid Fontenot is the first to thresh out rice of the Honduras variety in this section, and made a remarkable yield of eighteen baes to the acre.

Mr. fontenot Is cutting the stubble off snd will flood it and trow a second crop, which will come on very fast, and fully mature before cold westher Injures it. At the Lake Arthur camp meeting the attendance is not so great as usual, owing to the excessive rains at the beginning. Many families that usually go are very busy Just now In the harvesting of rice. Sam Michael has sold his seven-scre farm near Estherwood to Don Ixmi Mevers for S'Sou, and mill make It his home.

owing to the great profit In growing sngar csne, a lante amount is orneren to plant for the coming season.

The Sanders' Standard. Mansfield Enterprise. Gov. Sanders has accepted the resignation of Dr. Dillon as president of th Mate lUard Health, who will retire on sept.

I. "mat the ration of Dr. Dillon has been a failure, there can be no question, but it cannot be altogether attributed to a want of administrative ability on bis part, but to his surroundings, when he entered upon his duties. is fortunate in securing relief, and we wish him better luck next time. The whole onblic service has been d-moralized.

and tr. Dillon's failure has been no exception, as It has measured fully op to the Sanders' standard. The Most Estrarairant Administration la the History of Loalaiana. Point Coupee Banner. The Banner contends that since we have a primary law.

It should be be put to use. let the people decide who their officers shall be. and not the coterie of politicians summoned to Raton Rniira fop that purpose. As a man we have nothing to say against Got. Sanders, he la capable, has many rood qualities bnt we "don't like his He bss Just a little too much of this ingredient In his make up.

His administration, one ef the most extravagant in the history of the State since carpet bag days, will pass Into history Just as the people open their eyes well. As Lincoln once said: "You can fool some people all the time, but you can not fool all the people all the time." They are gradually beginning to nnder-stand those big approbations, and why Sanders was elected bv the General Assembly. Tslk about "chariot wheels." why take Minnesota, prosperous and no taxes Louisiana unfortunate and tax-ridden to tbe fullest measure to support the "spokes" In the chariot wheels.

"North Lontslanlans have an opportunity to become live factors in the politics of the State." So says the Progressive Age of Ruston. North Louisiana has bad the opportunity these many moons but North Louisiana sits on its bind legs snd bays at the heavens Instead of geting into the 3ubt and using combative apar-atus as well as ts tonsue. Never were better strairetic positions abandoned in the world than those from which North Loulsianlans retreated In the last session of the General Assembly. Personally, for greater interests, we were glad to see tbem retreat but it was an amusing performance. A Can nal an of Artanieati Desired.

Monroe New Star. "We hare followed the newspaper reports of the meetinrs held over the district, and If either Mr. Clavton or Mr. McGregor has advanced one single, solitary reason why either should be elected to Congress, we have not had the irisxl fortune to discover It. Both have taken Mr.

Raosdell aa a text, and have vllllfled fclm unmercifully. They have endeav ored to make the people of this believe he is a Republican, a traitor and a deserter. They had Jast as well trr to make the oeooie beiive that the Missis sippi river will chauge Its course at their command as to try and "soft soap" the men of tbe hill snd river parishes with any such rot as that. The people of the hlftb District know Mr. Kansdell and be fore the campaign Is over they will know the two eentlemen opposing him.

Hefore it is too late, we desire to sug gest to Messrs.

Clayton and McGregor that If tbey have any legitimate excuse wnv either snoutd replace Mr. Ransrleil In Congress they Bad better offer It now and not confine themselves to slnnderons attacks. Tbe free use of billingsgate never can be twisted Into argument or oratory, ana when men nave no other reason to advance tnelr behalf, it proves that their cause is weak, and that they are trving to bolster It no by bai less denunciation of tbetr dl-nifled and courteous opponent. Dsal Office-Holding-. Alexandria TWmwnt Although Sanders inveighed in caktlc teruis against dual office holding during the primary campaign when be was candidate for Governor, and promised the rple that tnls nefarious practice sbonul extirpated if be was elected, we uuw nnd, notwithstanding his solemn promise, that it not only continues to flourish as it did under previous administrations.

out tbat ne, nlmselr. is the most con spiclous example of this species of graft, holding on with Inflexible tenacity to the office of Governor of Louisiana aud United States Senator, and we assume drawing, or will draw, salaries for both offices at the same time. Of course. It is in ennflb-t with and in violation of tbe Constitution, bnt then the Constitution be when it stands in the way of Sanders' Napoleonic ambition. He has fooled the people of this State for two yarn with his I'ecksnlrnan promises, nut the time is coming when he can fool them no longer, bis unredeemed pledges stand ing as an 1 111 pregnable bulwark against auy further faith In Dim.

A Polltieal Clcarinaj Iloase. Plaquemines Protector. Gov. Senator Sanders promised his friends to resign when he could clear his desk of the Governorship work. Evidently his desk mcst have been badly littered.

His pap-fed friends, they of two or more offices, believing such dual office custom more honored ia the observance than the breach, have cried with one voice, "but he has not taken his oath as Senator yet" losing sight of the fact tbat such oath is a mere form, and ln all times snd climes the mdto is. "Ie roi et inort, vlve le rol." not dependent on tne oatn at me coronation wnicn is only a pageant. How generous of tbe Cnlted States, with her bales of red tape, to pay a Senator's salary to one not a Senator. But the paltry acceptance of unearned wages is only a bagatelle. The evil is that such officer.

In violation of that article of our Coustitution that severs tlie Governor from boiding. with six months of his inenmbency. a Federal erSce. an article evidently Inserted to preveot the ue of the enormous Influence ff such combined office, is holding the reins of power and by the nse of patronage and an additional horde of subservient office holders to be appointed and attached to bis service, seeking to strengthen his Praetorian hand to keen bim In the purple and leadership of Louisiana politics.
