Some of Our Negl-cted Kesources.
IN these tough times when we of the Louisi
ana sugar region may look longingly but with a
"'lt gardez mais ne les touchez pas" sort of
m,.,.itory sense on most of the meats and
cereals, and other family supplies and grocery
products which we import from other states and
can ill afford to pay the famine prices charged
therefor, we should cast an observant eye about
us and see what we neglect within our reach in
idle dreamings for the unattainable.
For instance: There are fresh water shrimps.
When the Lord made the Mississippi river He
liled its lower waters in unstinted abundance
with the most delicious little crustacean in all
the world. We of the riparian plantations and
farms of our river parishes from the Arkansas
line to the Gulf sometimes enjoy boiled river
shrimp sprinkled about equally with ice and red
pepper in our famous New Orleans restaurants.
But how many of us take advantage of this un
limited abundance and facility to capture them
aong about.800 miles of our river and bayou
blaks, counting them both ways, through all of
our three summer months, and use him to help
out and elevate our home living. All that is
needed to take river shrimp in out of the wet
by the basketful is an empty oat sack, with its
mouth held open by a barrel hoop, a string and
a stake to hold it to the bank, a brickbat to sink
it, and a bit of kitchen garbage to bait it.
When caught they are delicious and nourishing
in any style in which they may be cooked.
Boiled and seasoned with pepper, stewed with
tomatoes and rice a la Creole, converted into
shrimp balls a la Codfish Bostonaise, fricasseed,
fried, or made into a salad with mayonnaise
dressing, they are so delicious that those who
eat each dish declare it the best until they try
Yet with all of those billions of bushels of
succulent shrimp that turddle their whiskers
before our rural doors and asked to be taken in
that they might philanthropically reduce the
cost of daily living and help to do battle against
-the iniquitous exactions of the Beef Trust, and
the Bacon Trust, and the Codfish Trust, and the
Salmon Trust, we do not seek their assistance
in reducing our household expenses and improv
ing our daily bills of fare to the extent of a frac
tion of one per cent. We leave the most pro
hfic food supply furnished by the greatest
American river to the few Chinese and Malays
in our midst who furnish the urban markets, or
to the reflective negro of the river bank who is
familiMar with the resourcefulness of the shrimp
bag in filling the stomach to the exclusion of all
the customary incidental toil demanded in such
It would take the most studious German sta
tistician to calculate the countless millions of
money annually wasted by the riparian popula
tion of Louisiana in neglecting this wonderful
anliuited food supply furnished them by a boun
tiful Providence free of all cost save that of the
facile catching and the cheap and efficient cook
ing. This is one of our greatest natural re
sources which we sadly and wantonly neglect.
But there are others.
There is the ubiquitous and nutritious catfish,
the fat and scaleless scavenger of the Missis
ippi river. Since New Orleans and other great
eities of the Mississippi valley have gone into
the business of dumping their unqualified and

sissii river, or have developed that business
proportionately with their vast increase of popt- '
lation, the catfish in the Father of Waters have
flourished and multiplied and grown fatter and ,
more nutrieious until they are capable of helv
ing to support an enormous human population if
they are properly utilized as a food resource for
the people of our river states. Yet, compara
tively, that unlimited food supply is scarcely
touched. The few Malay and Chinese fisher
men furnish catfish to our city fish-markets, the
vagabond riverbank negro lures him from his
lair, and small companies of white men operat
ing on the Atchafalaya, capture a driblet of the
local catfish supply and ship it by rail to be con
sumed fresh in the interior towns and cities un
der various and most profitable aliases, or direct
to the salmon canning factories where its flesh
and hair are properly dyed and it comes back to
us in the unblushing pink countenance of Pa
That predilection of the catfish for the
decaying garbage and the over-ripe flotsam
of the Mississippi river is nothing in its dis
favor. The vegetation that feeds us itself feeds
upon the rejected of animal vitality, which
comes to us revived and purified by the won
drous chemical changes of nature. It is the
same with the catfish. It not as what he eats,
but what it is converted into in his vitality that
comes to us. lie is very edible fried and ap
pearing on table under his native cognomen,
and also somewhat satisfactory, if somewhat
delusive, as furnishing the chief component
parts of Courthouillon or masquerading in the
guise of Tenderloin Trout, with sauce tartare.
There are very many ways in which the cat
fish may be cooked on his own or assumed mer
its, and under the conditions of the enormous
cost of other foods he is grossly neglected by a
people who might save millions in recognizing
him as a most available and abundent food re
source in times of plenty or in a period of fam
ine. In his proper and profitable development
n capital is needed except that involved in a
few cheap hooks and lines, and the little time
wasted waiting for him to bite is as likely as
not to be wasted in a less advantageous manner.
Then, again, at least in lower Louisiana, we
have the bullfrog in great force. lie is fine and
nutritious eating, and in some of the more pop
ulout Northern States he is cultivated in farms
with a profitable annual crop. Here we sadly
neglect him, as if his only mission in life were
singing the bass in the batrachian chorus of our
swamps and marshes. If we cultivated him and
ate him here in his native heath we might find
and save millions in him.
Highly important in the scale of crustacean
foods comes the crawfish. lie bores our levees
and eats our rice crop, and urgently invites us
to follow the reciprocal practice of feeding on
him. He is during all the warm months in vast
abundance and very edible. He figures to ad
vantage in gumbo, bisque, jambalaya and frica
see. A comparatively few of us recognize his
intrinsic worth as a food resource, but a few
hundred thousand of us utterly neglect him and
are unaware that he is fully capable of taking
the place of a part of the trust-controlled pro
ducts which cost so much in housekeeping now.
To summarize: We all complain of and
suffer through the present cost of living. Yet
here we are surrounded by an unstinted and
boundless natural supply of fresh and salt
shrimp, catfish, bullfrogs and crawfish furnished
free to all who are able to take them and par
take of them. In almost every form in which
these food resources may be cooked our native
rice figures to advantage, and our native okra
and tomatoes improve.
Our good old state is more :apable of feed
ing itself than it has so far demonstrated that
it is, and it should not neglect the development
of such food resources as have been described
herein as it has been doing ever since it became
a proud member of the great sisterhood of
American commonwealths. Let us diversify
our cultures somewhat, and to our trinity of
sugar cane, rice and cotton, add these riches of

Sleans. Jos. Crowley, Chas. Tackaberry
and H. Wagner, all of New Orleans and

iprovisions, intending to reach Bay

sthey expected to meet their families
Swho were to arrive at Bay Adam by
the New Orleans Southern on Sunday
morning. They proceeded on smoothly
until Saturday evening ahhn, upon
reaching Grand Lake their engine stop
- ped and while trying to repair it a storm
i, came on and blew their frail craft
a re,.: tis' Luo., ine a rinall inlet hta .
Night coming on they arranged to make,
thiemselves comnfortabhle andi nxt morn
ing, their boat still being out of corn
mission and knowing that their families i
would arrive that day, three, of the
party, Wmn. Buras, Tim 1)onner and
('has. Tackaberry, procee.ded to try to
reach the river by land. After walk-.
ing some di:ance they fell into musk
rat holes and walking became very dif
ticult. The further they went the more
determined they were to get to the end
as return seernedIl imnpossible. The fa
tigue and heat of the noon sun now be
gan to tell and after walking what they
supposed to be several inileh, they came
to a large stream which they could
neither wade or swim. In utter de
spair they concluded to return to the,
boat, which was some miles behind
them. In the struggle which followed.
each man shifted for himself and the
task proving beyond.II )onner's strength
he became exhausted and was left lbe
hind by the others who themselves were
barely able to reach the boat. After
making a vain search for their lost com
panion, the party retired for the night
on their boat and detirmined next morn
ung to make a start for the river, the r
engine in the meantime having been
put in order. Reaching the Myrtle
Grove ('anal Monday morning, the news
of Donner's plight was quickly convey
ed to everyone, Sheriff Mevers being
among the first to get in touch with the
situation. The Sheriff promptly left
for Socola and Doulluts Canals where
he began organizing searching parties
composed of fishermen and trap

It was the party in charge of Steve
Gillen of Algiers, to which fell the good
fortune of finding the missing man. On
Tuesday at 12 o'clock m. after repeated
firing of guns the party heard the fee
ble calls of the poor fellow, who, upon
recognizing one of his townsmen, ex
claimed, "Thank God I am saved."
A special train was hurried to Socola
Canal Tuesday night and Donner was
spee.ded home to his anxious wife and
relatives, all of whom had abandoned all
hope of seeing him alive again.
From latest press accounts, Donner
is doing nicely, having been placed on
a milk diet on account of the effects of
salt water drinking.
