B. /Andrews of this placo ran to his
houGO to find out the oause. They
knew the cries were made by his par
rot, but they had never heard it scream
so loud before.
Andrews lay. on the floor uncon

his neck. He had been repainting
the ceiling and had fallen from a step
ladder, striking a atovo. ' A physician
took Bia stitches to oloso the wound
and said that in only a few minutes
Andrews would haye been dead.
Thia is cot the first time tho parrot
has looked after the welfare of its
owner. Some years ago the house
next door caught fire. The parrot's
screams awakened Andrews in time
to arouse his neighbors before much
damage was done* Andrews ia a vet
eran of the civil war, and some time
ago he applied for admission to the
soldier's home. On being, informed
that he would be aoo?pted, he wrote
the authorities, asking if he would
be permitted to bring his parrot.
Their answer being in the negative
he deeided-n?t to go.

The Steam Plow Being Used la Rle?
(New Orleans Dully States.)
* "The problem of tho scarcity of la
bor ia being solved ia the r.co coun

plows," said Mr. S.F.B. Morse, as
sistant passenger tramo manager of
the Southern Pacifia Railroad, who
carno to tho oity thia morning abd reg
ia to red at the St. Charles hotel.
"A man by the name of Bussell,
who came from Minneapolis, Minn.,,
and who has had much experience in
raising ?heat ia the far northwest,
bought the first steam plow to be used
in the rico country and ia now operat
ing it on bia rioe farm of 1,000 acres,
whioh is located five miles out of
Houston, on the Southern Paoifio
"When he went to buy the engine
for his plow he wanted the oompaoy
from whom he purchased it to sell it
to him subject to a test on bis rioe
farm, but objeotion was made to this
procedure and he then bought the
traction maohine outright. Ho wish
ed to buy the eight plows needed to
hitch onto the ongine subject to the
samo tost, but again he met with ob
jections and again he bought tho
plows outright. He knew how steam
plowing was carried on in Minnesota
and he was convinced that it could be
done in the same way in Texas, as the
rice prarie is perfeotly level.
"Although everybody discouraged
him and advised him against making
the experiment he went ahead and
exorcised his own judgment with the
result that he is now plowing his land
at the rate of 40 acres per day. His
steam plow does the work of 30 mules
and eight negroes.
"The importance of the introduc
tion of the steam plow into tho vice
fields cannot be overestimated when it
is understood that labor is so very
soaroe that it is almost impossible to
get the crops in. The negro does not
seem to make a good hand in the rioe
field. It is impossible to get any oth
er sort of labor sufficient to meet thc
demands of the rioe farmers.
"While it is not the purpose of thc
rioe interests to encourage Japanese
immigration to the extent of sending
out agents for it, yet the introduotior
