Its Geographical Position and Many
Other Considerations Mark It as
Most Suitable Spot for Dedi

Public sentiment has decided that

In 1915 shall be celebrated with a
great International Exposition in
which all the nations of the world
may participate; and the question of
where this Exposition is to be held
will be settled by Congress at Its ap
proaching session.
New Orleans and San Francisco
are contesting for the honor of hold
ing this Exposition, and both cities
have guaranteed immense sums of
money as an evidence of their ability
to finance so great an enterprise.
An Exposition worthy of the term
"World's Fair." auch as New Orleans
proposes to build, will be a great ed
ucational movement. Its success as
such, however, will depend entirely
upon the percentage of our popula
tion who can secure its educational
advantages, this in turn, depends up
on its location, as the time in travel
ins to anil from the Exposition, and
the cost In railroad and Pullman
fares, arc the most important factors.
Considering these matters. New
Orleans' claims to being the "Logi
cal Point" for this Panama Exposi
tion, seem to be fully substantiated
by the following facts:
New Orleans is 500 miles from the
center of population In the United
Slates. San Francisco Is 2.500 miles
distant therefrom.
Within a radius of 500 miles from
New Orleans there are 17.500.000
people. Within the same radius from
San Francisco there are only 2.000.000.
Within a radius of 1.000 miles from
New Orleans, there are fi5.000.O0O.
Within the same radius from San
Francisco there are only fi.000.000.
At an average of 900 miles frorx
New Orleans, there are 70 of out
principal cities with a combined
population of 20.000.000. Averaging
BOO miles from San Francisco tber
are only 8 large cities, with a com
bined population of just 1.000.000
The average distance of all thest
Ities to New Orleans Is 792 miles.
to San Francisco 2.407 miles.
Over 75 per cent, of the people oi
:ha United States could go to an
Exposition there at an average ex
pense for railroad fare of $12.50. as
against an average of $37.50 to the
Pacific Coast; and for several mil

fare and Dining Car expenses alone
tor a trip to San Francisco, would
tmount to more than all their trans

The earlier you can get your winter
wheat ground plowed the better.
Wheat is a plant that delights In a
firm seed bed and that cannot be ob
tained if the ground is plowed a few
days before seeding. If it is plowed
early, however, and is thoroughly
disked and harrowed at intervals, It
will be comparatively firm, yet loose
enough on top when it Is .time to sow
the wheat.
Prior to and during the molting
period feed whole wheat for morning
feed in straw litter. The noon feed
should consist of cold bran slightly
seasoned with salt and cayenne pep
per, with well-cooked lean meat, such
as boiled heart, liver or lights, cut
into strips. The night feed, given
about four o'clock, is cracked oats in
straw litter.
Avoid watering the garden if possi

The brood sow should have a con
siderable proportion of bulky feeds,
such as pasture, roots, etc. This will
serve to distend the stomach and pre

The net earnings of hens must al

a hen can earn in a year after paying
all expenses may be estimated at be

A well selected, well managed, well
