An Interesting Letter. Natchitoches, La.. Nov. 23. Era-Leader: I read with interest almost every line of the Era-Leader for it's just like seing some one from home. I have been watching with in terest the agricultural develop ment of the parish, and especially the interest that is being taken in dairying. I think this is the most profitable kind of farming where good market facilities can be had. The farmers along the line of the New Orleans Great Northern Railroad have very favorable con ditions for shipping milk as part of the farm operations, and to the farmer who will grow feed and furnish pasture for his cows will surely come moro profit from his labor. Consider some of the advant ages for dairying. Pay day comes often. It is a cash busi ness. Any loss or gain can be checked up each week, and it is easier for a man to figure his ex. penses and income on a dairy herd than in growing crops where the growing season is long. Another advantage to the farmer is that his children who ...

DIED. On Nov. 21st 1014, at his home in Washington Parish, Dr. Jep tha J. Alford. Born on the 2nd, of Aug. 1830 just above the State Line near his home where he died, being 84 years and three months old. The long active and useful life of the above, the great services to his fellowman, the value of his influence and the example his life has been to the community in which he lived, the importance of his acts to his country and state entitles him to more than a mere passing notice among the list of the dead. Beginning life at a time when the opportunities for acquiring an education was quite limited com pared to the present time, he by diligent study in the country schools acquired sufficient educa. tion to teach school and. in 1853 and 1854 he-taught school in the Parish of St. Helena teaching and studying for his chosen pro fession which was that of Medi cine. It was during the time he was teaching that he took part in his first political campaign, and showed his great ability as an...
