r mn a GERMANIA LAND AND LUMBER CO Now offers to Farmers and Investors 2,000 acres of the richest alluvial lands in CENTRAL SOUTHERN LOUISIANA, known as The Valley of the Teche Plantation IVIDED into f arms from 40 acres and up, and at u northwest of New Orleans. The S. P. railroad crosses the land, and there a small station on the plantation. The land is bordered by the Bayou Teche on the ast, and the Bayou Vermillion on the west. THE SOIL is without question the most fertile on the globe, and the immense crops of CORN, ALFALFA, SUGAR CANE, RICE, FRUITS, VEGETABLES AND DAIRY PRODUCTS, show its adaptability to diversified farming. It is of the rich est alluvial formation, or in other words, the cream of the top soil of the states along the Mississippi, washed down centuries ago and deposited here 20 to 30 feet in depth With an average of 54 inches annual rainfall, and a growing season of over 10 months in a year, can you have one lingering doubt of the huge agricultural wealth of such soil, situated in a country free from storms and climatic extremes, with good markets and splendid transportation facilities? The last United States census report shows that capital invested in Louisiana farms yielded an income of 27.3 percent annually on the investment, which is 70 per cent higher than the general average for the United States. No other part of the United States offers such inducements to farmers and investors as does Central Southern Louisiana; no lands will rise in value more rapidly; none more productive. Louisiana produces within her own borders every necessity of life, CORN, GRAIN BEEF, COTTON, POULTRY, WOOL, SUGAR, SALTS, FRUITS, FISH, LUMBER COAL, OIL, SULPHUR, STONE, ETC. The climatic conditions are ideal. There are no long and expensive winters. Stock feeds on the pastures the year round. The highest temperature reached in the city of New Orleans was 99 degrees Fahr.

Respectfully submitted. I F. GOTTSCHALK. Engineer, on motion of Supervisor Schaeciier s..nie was adopted. The following resolution was intro duced by Supervisor Clother: m m President Roosevelt in his annual message to Congress, December 4, 1907, said: "As an incident to creating the deep water ways down the Mississippi, the territory lying adjacent to the lower Mississippi along its lower course will, therefore, become one of the most prosperous and populous, as it al ready is one of the most fertile farming regions in the world." Hon. James Wilson Secretary of the U. S. Department of Agri culture, in an address to Iowa farmers, said: "I WANT TO ADVISE YOU TO KEEP YOUR EYES ON THE SOUTH. AND ESPE CIALLY ON THAT PART OF THE SOUTH IN THE IMMEDIATE VICINITY OF NEW ORLEANS. IT IS A GREAT COUNTRY." The United States Govern ment, says: "The Southern Louisiana Farming lands are the RICHEST IN THE WORLD, THEY ARE NEVER IDLE. THEY PRODUCE THE YEAR ROUND." Whereas on the 19th day of October. 1911. the board of supervisors person a'ly viewed the Carrig and Jewell Iramage ditch, constructed within I'latte county and pursuant to con tract between the county of Platte and one Chas.

On motion of Supervisor Smith same was adopted. ioved by Supervisor Schure that the board of supervisors now adjourn un til 9 o'clock, a. in., tomorrow. Motion cat ried. Columbus. Nebraska. October 2:. 1'tll. Pursuant to adjournment the board of supervisors met at 9 o'clocic. a ri. Hon. Louis Sehwarz. chairman. John Graf, elerk. and all members present. The following was presented: To the Board of Supervisors: Gentlemen: Through the columns of a newspaper It appears that the coun ty attorney has made a report to your honorable body, alleging that there re mains uncollected of the inheritance tax due the county the sum of $4,000.00. The order directing the county attor ney to check over the records of my of fice to ascertain the amount of such tax uncollected was made last March. For some reason no steps were taken to comply with this order until about ten days ago. although from the time the order was made I repeatedly ap plied to the county attorney for coun sel and suggestions with respect to the collection of this tax. but eacli time was turned away without advice or suggestion. The Impression conveyed by his re port is that the county has lost $4,000 of inheritance tax through some fault of mine. This report is grossly unfair to me. In the first place permit me to say to your honorable body that there is no such amount of uncollected Inheritance tax due the county. Some of the es tates from which Inheritance tax Is col lectible are still in process of settle ment. I have collected In the past few The death rate of the city of New Orleans in the month of July was 10.13 per 1,000 per innum, the lowest of any city in THE UNITED STATES. There was not a sin gle death from heat prostration or sun stroke. The annual rainfall is 54 inches, well distributed. It is an ideal climate the year round, both for comfort and health. FORTY ACRES HERE WILL PRODUCE AS MUCH IN STAPLE CROPS AS 160 IN NEBRASKA, and when put into fruits and vegetables, will yield in one year many times its own value. Read the following letter, which plainly shows what forty acres will produce when farmed by an ordinary renter: Lafayette, La., Oct. 16, 1911. GERMANIA LAND & LUMBER CO., Columbus, Neb. Gentlemen: Yours of the 13th to hand. I personally bought 40 acres of land about three years ago. I put a tenant on it and furnished him team and im plements and seed; 16 acres were planted to cane, and sold for $1,820.00; six acres of potatoes sold for $360.00; fifteen acres were planted to corn, which yielded 40 bushels per acre. I received one-half for my rental. Second year I planted 19 more acres in cane, and ran the 16 acres (first year); the proceeds amounted to $3,160.00t besides some potatoes and corn, of which I did not keep a record. Any number of farmers are refusing $75.00 per acre for their cane crop stand ing in the field this year. Yours very truly, J. C. NICKERSON. There is very little of this class of land to be bought in small tracts in Louisiana today, and we strongly urge our friends and patrons to take advantage of the oppor tunity we offer. We conduct excursions into this fertile country every first and third Tuesday in each month. Our next excursion will be on TUESDAY, NOVEM BER 7. Join us, and let the land itself prove our assertions. For further particu lars write or call Lumber Co. years almost $2,000. and when the rec ord is finally made up and the estates closed I have no reason to believe that there will be a dollar of this tax un collected if each county officer does his duty in the matter. The inheritance tax law is new and subject to many different and coiullet Ing interpretations. There is one es tate where the interests of the heirs was very conflicting and the settle ment of the estate troublesome. In this e.state the tax has not as yet been collected, but nearly all the heirs can be readied, ami furthermore, under the law. the tax follows the land, and by proper proceedure the county will col lect every dollar of t.iis tax. I would therefore respectfully ask your honorable body to appoint a Com mittee to go into this matter in a business-like and non-partisan manner, and thereby afford me. as well as the county attorney, an opportunity to be heard, and to present the facts fully and fairly, to the end that the tax payers may be advised of the true con dition of affairs. Respectfully submitted. JOHN HATTERMAN. County Judge. Moved by Supervisor Schaeciier that a committee of three be appointed bv the chair to check over the record's .n the county judge's office for the purling- of ascertaining the amount of un collected inheritance tax and the coin: t attorney is hereby ordered and di rected to be present and advise with I lie committee when said records are examined ami that the committer re port Its findings at the next session of the board. Motion carried and the chair appoint ed Supervisors Schaeciier. Schure ami Wl'son as sueli committee. Moved by Supervisor Smith that a committee of three be appointed of which the chairman of this bo-ir.i shall be one. to solicit bids for the coal lo e used the coming winter at the court house and said committee to purchase the same. Motion carried and Super visors Smith and Wilson and Chairman Sehwarz were appointed as such com mittee. Moved by Supervisor Smith that the supervisor of the district wherein the Carrig and Jewell drainage ditch is lo cated, be directed to cause to hav the necessary changes made on the flood grte of said ditch.
