Drink Kills One: Other I

Monroe, La., Jan. 16.--Em
ployes of the lockls and dam hoe- a
low the city to dlay made a l rue- I'
some discovery when they caught S
an old houseboat floating down C
the river. In the boat was the )
dead body of1 John D)aLy, and ti
clase by him lay Tuon 4 'Neal; in o
a stupor fron liquor. Tlie boat A
was towed in and fastened, l
and the sheriff and coroner noti- fr
fied. Coroner C. P. Gray and )(
Deputy Sheritff Tom .Jones went hi
down to investigate. O'Neal was
aroused from his drunken stupor re
and told a rambling story to the, 0O
coroner's jury. There were no of
marks of violence on Daley's er
body, but the jury recommended fa
that O'Neal be held until he is a:
able to tell a clearer story. le"
The boat was tied at the foot
of Pine Street, and either broke TI
from it moorings or was cut be
loose early last night. It drifted at
all night, until picke:l up at the ho
locks. O'Neal stated that Daley di5
died yesterday afternoon at 4 Cr
o'clock, but Coroner Gray thinks cr'
that death was early to-day, as of
there was still some warmth in ci
the man's back. It is believed ini
that death was due to excessive we
drinking and exposure. Both C.
were fishermen. the

Dormitory Burns At M1illsaps aml
College. ang
ing
Jackson, Miss., Jan., 16.-One wa
of the dormitaries of Millsaps de
College was destroyed by fire
at 3 o'clock to-night, caused, it
is said, by defective wiring.
The run for the fire department
was about a mile and the struc
tore was doomed when the en-. C
gines arrived. This building zen
was purchased a few years ago arr(
from Jackson College, a negro 000
institution, supported by North- late,
ern subscriptions. It was a
three-story brick, costin g per- Cou
haps $5000. The Millsaps boys of t
who roomed in the building are p
said to have lost most of their the

Louisiana Cauliflower Ahead.
G. L. Tiebout, who is one of
the most successful truck gar
deners in Louisiana, and who has
been sending cauliflowers to a
big dealer in New York City, is
in receipt of a letter from the
commission house, in which it is
stated that the Louisiana product
is so superior to anything of the
kind on kale in New York City
that the time is at hand when the
Louisiana product will crowd the
California and Florida cauliflow
ers out of the market of the
great metropolis.
While other cauliflowers were
bringing $1.25 and $1.50 per crate
on the New York market those e
'trgm Louisiana were selling at
$2.00 per crate.
The commision merchant men- v
t~ned above goes on to state a
the cauliflowers shipped p
r. Tiebout were at least 100 if
cnt better than the Cali
a cauliflowers.
-It has long been contended
that Louisiana vegetable and
fruit products are superior in
practically every respect to simi- r
lar California and Florida pro- k
duots, and the letter above quot- b
ed is "proof of the pudding."

On the same principle that ba

id- That is not all. Mr. Hall is
ier ready to ,jrmve his assertion and
of has machinf s and chemicals in
his possession to carry out the
contention. Last night at the
'' Grunewald he called on Governor
Irs Hall, while he was stopping in
the city, and succeeded in con
an vincing him of his seriousness,
so much so that Governor Hall

ck Company was formed some time
ago, and includes Rockefellers
and Beekers on the hoard of 0
trustees; also J. Ellwood Lee.
re
ed It is the purnose of the company
which is caplitalized at $100,000,
to entertain numerous Southern
Farmers, whose principal pro- 01
duct is cotton, and rent them ihl
machines and furnish chemicals he
at a 35 per cent royalty. In this co:
manner, by using his methods, lo.
declares Mr. Hall, a rotation of
crops in rapid order can take ba
e lace in rapid fire manner, mak- Wi
ing the farmer the aristocrat and ani
e incidentally the moneyed man of he
the United States. the
The cotton feature of the be]
of scheme is that the bolls will be Th
is harvested while immature in the
;d bolls and placed in a shed, where
eac
d chemicals will be applied, and in thi
is the space of a few hours the bolls at
. will be opened by the process re4
e with fully-matured bolls and we
fiber ready for ginning. In this
o manner time will be saved; an
- other crop can be planted in the
, tields; the stalks can be harvest
.- ed as cane and transformed into
n. almost any commodity from gun
in powder to whiskey. wil
A pleasing feature of tihe idea on
a- is that thle boll weevil will be 19
* starved out before it has had
d sufficient time to affect the cot
ton, making iJt ultimately die of
re starvation.
n "Our experts are strongly of Die
h the opinion," writes Secretary I
in'
st James Wilson, of the Depart
is ment of Agriculture, following I
an examjlation, "that injuries C
I from tihe boll weevil will be E
ish
in greatly diminished or obviated C
s- altogether if the cotton stalks or
ik unripe bolls were removed early c
R. in the fall." in
Mr. Hall accompanied by Fred the
D. Maisch, also of Philadelphia,
arrived yesterday from Mont- li
to gomery, Ala., where they had
, explained the project to Gover- ns
nor Emmit O'Neal. Last night
they had a conference with Gov- tio

A Card of Thanks.
I desire to thank my many
'e friends and neighbors for their
help during my late misfortune.
On December the 25th. 1912,
I had the misfortune to get my
,n dwelling, kitchen and smoke
s house, together with almost en
;e tire contents burned. My
1, neighbors and friiends while my
buildings were burning, began
planning and arranging for an
other home for me and work was
begun the next day and in two
weeks had another near enough
completed that me and my fami
rt ly could stay at home. I want
to say to all that language fails
me when I attempt to express
my gratitude and appreciation of
their efforts for our relief.
Respectfully,
B. F. Alford,
