. What Col. Harrison Parker
i Has to Say.
Baton Ronge, l.a., Dee. 4-The
State Penitentiary Board to night
i ecided upon the location of the two
ld State convict farms. West Feliciana
will get the cotton farm and Iberia
the sugar farm. The two plantations.
Angola and Hope, comprise rbout
11,500 acres. They are in a splendid
state, of cu!tivation and are suipplie(l
anl qc.uipled with mules, forage, feed,
implements. etc, ready for the Imme

State convicts, who next year will cul

Col. C. Harrison Parker, President
of the Board of ('ontiol, to.night
made following statement to a Times
I Democrat reporter:
S'The Angola plantation, which we
selected for the cotton plantatiols, is
located opposite the mouth of Red
river, in the parish of We st Feliciana.
e The total acreage is 8600 acres, so
that it will eventally afford room to
work six hundred or seven hundred
"In relation to the sugar plants
e Lion, I can say that some of the finest
t properties in the State were offered
.us. The choice of the Board ws, j
however, restricted by the relative 1
dfferences in valuation. There wast
not so much difference in the advan
tage of location. We bought the
Hlope plantation, situated in Ibens
parish. It fronts on the Teche, and
extends back to the Grand Lake. It
has upon it about 500 acres of this
year's stubble, and plant cane for 500
acres, so that we will have 1000 acres
of cane to cultivate in 1901. There
are 2S00 acres in the tract. The
I mles. farming implements, feed and
for:age go with the. place. It has a
sugar house complete, with a capacity t
of 400 tons per day, double effect, c
vaouum pans. etc. There are three
cand a ha.f mi es of narrow gauge
railroad on the property, with 160
cars and a steam 'lummuy engine "L
haul then There is a complete'
pant for the manufecture of hrick
anud tiles, which can be oper.ate to I
great advantage, the bayou affording t
the means of ch,.ap transportation, a
'The price paid for this place is only t
.$78.000, or about the value of the a
sugar house. Such an opportunitya
Sdoes not present mtseif often.

Euchre Party Postponed. o

bers of the Pastime Pleasure Club to

it was decided that the euchre be 0

down. The cane crop was not as
large as it was thought to be at the
I heginning of the grinding season, and
this tgether with the propitious
weather which existed throughout
nearly the whole of the t.ll and early
winter made the grinding season a
very short one. A great number of
laborers who are residents of this
city and who were employed on the
I difftrent plantations about here have
retusned to their homes. "It is an
ill wind that blowo, no body good",
and, aithough the effects of a short
crop ia felt by the merchants of our
to'wn as keenly as by the planters,
the housewives are rejoicing over the
fact that cooks and washerwomen
can now be easi:y procured.
The Southern Industrial
The Southern Industrial Conven
tion held in New Orleans this week
was a notable body, both as to the
character of its composition and the
work it performed. The attendance
of delegates and the scope of territory
a-.d interests represcated were all
that could be reasonably desired,
waile the harmony and enthusiasm
mavnif-stedl in the proceedings (f the
convention and the organization of
the Southern Industrial Association
augured well for the permanency and
progress of this movement for the
upluiidiug and advancement of the
south's commercial, "agrieiltural and
m .nufacturing industr:cs.
Although several of the most prom
inent men named on the program

Perhaps the topic of most guera I
interest and import.nce thus crnsid
ered was the Nucaraugus canal, to
which the night session of Tuesday
was exclusively devoted. A mern
orial to congress was unarimousiy
adopted, asking that prompt provi
sion be made for the construction and
operation of the canal under the sole
direction and ownership of the United
States, and a telegram was authorized
to be sent to Senator John T. Morgan
of Alabama, congratulating him upon
the prospect for the early co-summa.
tion of this great enterprise, to which
he has devoted years of able advoca.
cy and uutiring support. It seemed
a happy angury that on the very day
the industrial convention was called
upon to debate this subject President
McKinley should transmit to congress
the report of the government commis.
sion unanimously recommending the
Ncamraegan route as the most prae
ticable for an isthmian canal.

Seeds that Surely (Grow.
The cost of seeds compared with
the value of the crop ii so small thla
a few cents saved by buying secownl
rate seeds will amount to many dol
lars lost when the harvest is gatherrl.
Farmers have found out by nmanv
costly failures what a risky thing it
is to hbuy seeds without being pretty
sure that they are reliable aid true to
earne. The lat st catal(gue of the
sel house of D. M. Ferry & Co., of
De;nr,,t, l)ich., is a ermninder that
thousand, of farmers in the United
Statcs andI (Canada have plinetd their
faith to the reputation of this great
firm. DLuring a business career ap.

Ferry's seeds have won an annualn
increase in popularity, which is p,er

from the forest bordering on the

them easily at brat, the sparrows ap
pearing to be ignorant of the habit oft

north of Austin avenune the hawks
perched themselves on the telephene

they twittered in terror until the hawks
