LA.: Saturday, March 13, 1880. COTTON FACTORY. The movement to establish a cot ton factory ii, our parish should not be allowed to go by default, for want of energy and enterprise on the part of our citizens. The fact that the profits of converting our cotton crop into yarn are over two-thirds on the amount invested or $4320 on a permanent outlay of $6338, should in itself be sufficient to insure the early completion of the enterprise, without the addi tional advantage guaranteed by the Constitution, that capital so invest ed shall be exempt from license and taxation for a period of ten years. The establishment of these small factories is being urged by every paper in the South, as a safe and sure means of securing our com mercial independence and pros perity.

THE ST. TAMlMALNY FARMER. Covington, March 13, 1880. LOCAL ITEMS. SCHOOL BoaRnD.-The Parish School Board will meet in Covington next Sat urday. At its last meeting the Board gave notice that the public schools would be opened on the first Monday in April, in all wards having sufficient funds on hand to run the same for three months. In view of the fact tnat a bill is now pending before the Legislature, which if adopted will materially change our public school system, and perhaps- cause a new apportionment to be made, we think it would be advisable to delay action in the matter until the question is settled. The Board might examine and qualify teachers, and have every. thing in readiness to open the schools; but if the new law should necessitate any change in the public schools, after they had once been opened. it would cause considerable delay and inconvenience to both teachers and scholars. Our pub lic school terms are short enough, with out incurring the possibility of an in terru...

THE ST. TAMM.ANYV FARMER. Cviagton, M3arch 27, 1880. A WOMAN SUFFILAGLST ON THE COMSTOCK LODE. A tall lady with a saturnine countenance came into the Chroni,.de office to-day and demanded of one of the reporters if Virginia City of fered a good field for a series of a dozen lectures on Woman Suffrage. "I don't think the Comstockers have thought much about female suffrage," replied the reporter, frankly. "Don't say 'female,' " replied the tall lady, sharply. "Why not?" asked the reporter, in innocent surprise. "Because, sir, a term that is used to describe sex in animals should not be applied to women." The reporter admitted, in great humiliation, that the point was well taken, and looked up in some alarm at the severe countenance of the lady, who was a head taller than himself, and manifestly able to thrash him in the interests of pro gresa, if so disposed. The stern comuntenanee softened somewhat, at these signs of confessed inferiority, however, and the lady continued: "The cause ...
