ITS WONDERFUL GROWTH. it
Development of the Rice laustry in ui
Southwestern Louisiana. to
In'a recent issue of the New
Iberia Enterprise Mr. David
Todd, a distinguished attorney
of that city, refers to the iim- i
mense developnment of the rice ul
industry in the southwestern por- in
tion of this state, and to the still fit
unappreciated capacity of that Ti
section of our siate for the pro
duction of this important cereal. ki
SMr. Todd has in view more par- iI
ticularly the water supply for B,
irrigation, which can be secured gi
by the well system. ea
Rice has been cultivated in of
Southwestern Louisiana for a
hundred years, but it has only
been within the last two decades
that any material improvement
in the methods of rice culture
has occurred. It was found so
easy to secure irrigation from at
the freshwater bayous that pene- p1
trate the whole country, that oi
some enterprising farmers be- ce
gan such irrigation,elevating the
water a few feet with proper (;
pumps and securing ;spteuleid 1
returns. This led nimany others 51
into the production of what has fi
been called Providence rice, that b
is. crops planted with the hope I
that Providencn would send rains
-e enough to make the plants grow
and produce a satisfactory crop. o
. In some years such rice has t'
yielded wonderfully well, but the
uncertainty as to the rainfall,
both in quantity and time of fall
ing, brought ruin to mustof those
who depended upon Providence
1. rice for their revenue. This led
: to the enormous enlargement of
the irrigation facilities, and al
vast system of canals has been
created, and within a few years
Louisiana will be paoducing con
siderably more rice than our
Concurrently with thedevelop
ment of the irrigation system by
canals has come an exploition of
the well system. Deep wells
havebeen made quite a success
in the sugar districts of Louisi
ana for furnishing good watex
for years in the various sugar
houses, qpd it was an easy step
for the enterprising, well borers
to go to the rice districts and
* bore for water there. In fact, it
* was in borpg for ,a supply of
