SATURDAY, JULY 25, 1885.
A BIG FARM.
Away boyond tho bayous where
tlie Union soldiers struggled, dining
the wnr of tho Rebellion, beyond tho
country which was tho retrent of
the exiled Evangeline, in the very
southwestern corner of the state of
Louisiana lies the largest farm in
America, which is equivalent to say
ing tho largest in tho world. Jinny
of tho important principalities of
Europe could bo hidden within its
borders. It is one-third larger than
the entire state of Rhode Island. A
broad river, the Calcasieu, .nnvigablo
for u hundred and fifty miles, Hows
through it, and here are to be found
Grand Lake, Luke Michael, Laku
Charles, and other inland seas, con
taining hundreds of square miles.
Some of these sheets of water arc
famous for their beauty, with high
batiks, pebbly Bhorcs and sandy
bottoms, and fringed with heavy
forests of dark evergreens, draped
nnd festooned with trailing Spanish
moss and 'mystic mistletoe."
The way to' the great farm is easy,
as n railroad traverses it from end
to end. Taking the Morgan Kail
ro.ad at New Orleans and transfer
ring to the Western Louisiana at
Lafayette, the traveller flies over a
rather monotonous region, broken
here and there by picturesque un
dulations nnd live oak and cotton
wood forests, and, at the end of two
hundred and twenty miles, arrives
at Lake Charles, a town of three
thousand five hundred inhabitants,
overlooking a largo and beautiful
lake of the same name. This is in
the middle of the big farm.
Who is the big farmer? About
two years ago there suddenly ap
peared in the vicinity a quiet,
unassuming, plainly-dressed man,
weighing hot more than one hundred
nnd thirty-five pounds, with keen,
shrewd eyes and a grave and thought
ful business air. He hired a boat
and sailed down the lake and the
river, bought horses and made an
elaborate tour of inspection. He
was a puzzle. Some thought he
was an invalid in search of health ;
others that he was a crank who
wanted to start an alligator farm
and raise those insects for their now
valuable hides. He silently in
spected and disappeared. Then it
began to bo whispered around that
his name was J. B. "Watkins, and
that he had bought of the Slate and
Federal Governments a farm nearly
a million and a quarter of acres 1
He had purchased the land stretch
ing along the Gulf of Mexico for
one hundred miles and reaching
thirty miles inland!
Of course the first thing the na
tives did was to denounce him as a
"land-grabber." But their indig
nation was appeased when they
learned that he had bought the land,
not to keep idle as an extortionate
speculator, but to hold and work
and improve on a tremendous scale.
Three-quarters of the purchase was
marsh lands, subject to tidal over
flow, and he straightway took in
hand a scheme for reclaiming this
worthless swamp and giving it to
pasturage and tillage. It lias a
deep alluvial soil, with a stiff yellow
clay subsoil, and in its wild state is
covered with a dense vegetable
growth, revealing a gorgeous color
ing of flowers.
The plan for reclamation is some
thing like that practised in Holland :
it is to dig canals and ditches, using
the dirt to build levees ; then, with
automatic gates and steam-pumps,
flood or dry the land at will, making
it admirably adapted to rice, sugar,
cotton and grass. . The canals thus
far built are twenty-one feet wide
and six feet deep. Those running
from the river back into the interior
are a half mile apart, and others at
right angles to these are three-and-a-half
miles apart. This cuts the
marsh ud into narallelncrams of
about one thousand acres each.
Thus Holland, with its dykes and
fertile gardens, is being reproduced
in Louisiana. Thirty or forty miles
of canals have already been dug,
and these arc progressing at tho
rate of six hundred yards every
twenty-four hours. !No less than
three thousand acres have been
seeded to rice this spring. Thirty
two boats have been built, including
steamboats, tugs and yachts ; and
steam-plows, harrows, ditchers and
monster dredges have been brought
The method of plowing is unique
and original. The land is cultivated
as well as reclaimed entirely by
steam power floated in these canals.
Not a liinn or beast is to Bet foot on
it for tho purpose of working it.
The plowing is done by monster
gang-plows, turning five furrows,
aggregating eight feet wide. They
are drawn back and forth across the
field with wire cables by engines sta
tioned in boats, on the canals. Some 50
acres arc plowed in ten hours by each
machine. The harrowing, sowing,
harvesting and threshing arc done
in the same way, and with incrediblo
rapidity. In order to have fresh
water for flooding the rice ileitis, no
water is admitted to the canals at
high tide except far up the river,
where the water is always fresh ; and
to relieve tho fields of this water or
tho rainfall, at high tide steam
pumps arc provided, throwing a
million gallons an hour.
Steam-ditchers arc also at work,
each of which cuts a ditch three
feet wide at top, a foot at bottom,
and three feet deep, ahd the ditch
is opened at the rate of two miles an
hour. This reclamation is a sort of
work new to Americans, and its pro
gress is watched by Americans with
great interest. None of this land is
for sale, though on its northern
border is a vast belt of prairio and
arable land belonging to the State
and the nation open to free pre
emption, and every actual settler
who will raise timber according to
the requirement of law can get six
hundred and forty acres under tho
The North American Land and
Timber Company is tho designation
of the agent at work ; but, of course,
there is the man at tho bottom of
the company. The name of Watkins
was, until recently, quite unknown
in New Orleans. At the St. Charles
Hotel, New Orleans, where he had
been a frequent guest for two years,
they know nothing of him. Inquiries
finally elicited the facts. It was the
old story. Left a penniless orphan
at the age of seven, he had made
his own future. He worked on
farms, and worked hard, at eight
dollars a month. He earned his
schooling. Fifteen years ago now
he left college without a dollar in
his pocket. Ho has made his way
silently and swiftly. To-day, less
than forty, he owns land in every
county of Kansas, and is at the head
of a banking and loan company at
Lawrence, having branches at Dallas.
