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.

President Roosevelt

"As an incident to creating the deep water

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."

"I WANT TO ADVISE YOU TO KEEP
YOUR EYES ON THE SOUTH. AND ESPE

Pursuant to adjournment the board

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.

Untimely Death Often Prevented
Countless mistakes have been made by medical men innocent vic
tims have paid the penalty for each. On the other hand, countless suc
cesses have resulted from expert diagnosis. To know the errors of those
who failed to know the methods of those who won increase the chances
of successful treatment.
For many years, we have been closely connected with leading Spe
cialists of every school of practice. We" have interchanged ideas, we
have been co-workers in all that concerns the art of healing. Besides
this mass of experience, we have the combined knowledge of each of our
own Specialists. They constitute our "Medical Advisory Hoard," and
deepseated or complicated cases are submitted to them. The result is
evident. It means better diagnosis, better treatment and less expense.
