Truck Growers Association

The lands of Union Parish and especially that portion of it traversed by the Farmerville & Southern Railroad are well adapted to the truck growing industry. It has been thoroughly demonstrated that there can be raised as fine cabbage, potatoes, peas, beans, tomatoes, fruits, etc., on our lands as can be found any where, and new since we have a railroad through the parish which will give us better shipping facilities it behooves our citizens to get together at once and organize a Truck Growers Association. That a farmer could not engage in a more lucrative occupation to say nothing of the enhanced valuation of property, has been thoroughly demonstrated by the citizens of our two sister parishes — Lincoln and Claiborne. A little over one year ago the farmers of Lincoln Parish, together with the leading businessmen of the town of Ruston – prominent among whom was Mr. H. W. Reagan who is a gentleman well known throughout this parish and to whose efforts especially is due the building of the new railroad — got together and organized a Truck Growers Association. The first crop, which was put upon the market last summer proved that there is enormous profits in the business. Many of the farmers who only planted a small patch and worked it at odd moments realized all the way from $300 to 1500 out of it. Others who planted more extensively realized more in proportion. They are making preparations to go into it more extensively and in a more business lake manner for next year. Today the very same lands that could have been bought one year ago for $2.00 or $3.00 per acre are now selling for $5.00 and $6.00 and the increase in business that the town of Ruston has realized out of it is something wonderful. There is nothing in the world to hinder Union Parish from doing the same thing. As Mr. Reagan has vast interests in Union Parish and consequently is directly interested in the up building and the advancement of the country no doubt he would very readily lend us his assistance in the matter. As he has considerable experience in the experience in the business, being if we mistake not the President of the Lincoln Parish Association he could render us a great deal of serve along this line.

Let every man who has the interest of his town and parish at heart think seriously on this proposition.

Capt. T. A. Frierson, the hustling real estate man who so successfully conducted the big sale of the town lots in the Smith addition of Farmerville on last Thursday and Friday left Monday morning for his home in Atlanta, Ga. Capt. Frierson during his short stay with us has made many warm friends among us who regret very much to see him leave. He stated that he could see a very brilliant future for Farmerville and if the citizens would continue the spirit of “push” which they have stated there would be no limit to the town’s achievements.

CONSTIPATION Heath is absolutely impossible if constipation be present. many serious cases of liver and kidney complaint have sprung from neglected constipation. Such a deplorable condition as unnecessary. There is a cure for it. Herbine will speedily remedy matters. C. A. Lindsay, P. M., Bronson, Fla., writes, Feb. 12, 1902: Having tried Herbine, I find it a fine medicine for constipation. 50c bottle. Sold by J. D. Baughman.

Jameson on the corner of Main and Bayou streets is nearing completion and in a few more weeks will be ready for occupancy. It will be, when completed, as nice a building a can be found any where. It will be a two story affair with plate glass front, the north half of which will be the domicile of the Farmerville State Bank and the south half will be Dr. Jameson’s drug store.
