Moderu Methods to be Applied to 'exas
Twenty five thousand acres of rice
land irrigated by wells operated by
electricity from a central power-house;
fret power and free seed for tenants,
tenants paying one half the crop to
the land owners, and sending the
tenants' share of the crop to the cen
tral mill to be milled at current rates;
light to be furnished at nominal cost
by the centra power-house; no farm
of less than 200 acres, and no en
ants who have not proved thems 'es
capable farmers; tenants to have the
privilege of placing their half of
their crops in the hands of the mill's
* The project is that of C. W. Hahl,
of Houston, Texas, and is outlined as
follows in the New Orleans Times
"Canal irrigation is dependent
upon surface water supply, which is
subject to drouth. In such times, if
the water in the canal be lr,or the
supply from the canal is fed or lim
ited, the farmers further from the
pumping plant do not fare as well
as those nearer the plant.
"Throughout the 25,000 acre tract
owned by the corporation, test wells.
at frequent intervals of distance have
proved the'existence of a water sup
ply which gives indications of being:
certain and inexhaustible. The sup
ply is relatively aear the surface, and
rises in the wells to within about ten
feet of the surface urider normal con
ditions, and it is presumed that even:
in severe drounth the subsurface pres
sure will maintain the water in the
wells at a depth but a few feet greater
"The tenants must supply their
own farming implements, stock, etc.
The oor oration will furnish , the
ower fot e Punps, the connect ions
may be made to operate the pump,
or pumps on each farm by'either the
tenant or by the powerhouse on ap
plication of the tenant.
"It is probabie that the power-j
house will also supply electric lights
for all tenants who want such lights,:
the tenants paying a nominal price.
* Light can be furnished at small ad
ditional cost to the power house, and
the corporation will rely for its prof
its on its 50 per cent. -of each tenant's
production and the profit at current
* rates of milling all the tenants' share
* of the aggregat'e crop.
"The project is co operative, but
not beneficent, and no 1and will be
let to any tenant who is not finan
cially and otherwise capable of op
e rating a 200 acre farm. The pres
ent plan is tolet farms of from 200
to 300 acres.
"'The power house will supply pow.
* er for The mill as well -as the farms.
"Professor Knapp recently pointed
out that the obstacle in the way of
extension of the rice growing indus
try was the difficulty of guarantee
* ing an adequate irrigation supply
from the surface streams,' said Mr.
Hahl. 'We have solved this prob
lem. Subsurface water rising to
within a few feet of the surface,
electric power to lift it; institutes
.were held and were attended by over
half a million farmers. The insti
tates were held in forty three States
and Territories. During the last
three years the progress has been if
anything greater than at any pre
vious time, though the exact figures
are not yet collated. It is safe to
say that now in this country over
$200,000 is being sent annually for
PLaIN TALK BY A PUBLIo OFFICER.
CommisSioner Ware a rerror to shyster
[New York Evening Post.]
If the syster attorneys who are en
gaged in fraudulen' pension practice
* fancied they were making any gain in
exchanging Evans for Ware in the
commissionership they have probably
awakened from the delusive dream
before this. Mr. Ware has the 1
credit for more "bluff and hearty''"
ways than his predecessor, but he is <
in no sense behind him in vigor ofi
speech. Some of his expletives would
hardly answer in a metropolilan E
drawing room. They slip out withI
such ease when his indignation is
excited, however, that to mos' ears E
they seem mPrely to add spice to his f
coimunaries The other day a v

ay, as he opened the door at the I
lose of the conversation: q
"No, you've been robbing the sol
iers. I've had all I want of you.
iow, you had better go."
With this he emerged from the
)rivate office and seated himself at
kis desk in the ante room, where he
egan to address his attention to
eme accumulated mail. The attor
iey followed him, apparently much
restfallen, and, approaching him
nee more, set up a low, whining
"Mr. Commissioner, I think you're
iardly fair. I think-"
He got no further. Mr. Ware, who
iad whirled around in his chair and
isen, and was confronting him with
he face of a thunder-cloud, inter
upted him with:
"And I'l tell you wlt I think! I
hink you are a - thief, and ought
o be in prison. I told you to go.
Tow get out!"
And he seized the astounded lawyer
y the arm and thrust him into the
Another specimen of the same
3ass, a gray-haired old scamp, who
had long been disbarred, but had
3ontrived to keep up his trade by
working through other lawyers not
yet under the ban, came on to see
whether he could not make his way
back into good standing. He, too,
was granted a private interview and
was deceived by his own glib speech
into imagining that he had made a
pretty fair impression. When they
were about to part the lawyer paused,
waiting for a last word from the com
Dissioner, who seemed to be in a
brown study: Presently Mr. Ware
"I'll think your case over," said he.
The attorney bowed, all smiles,
but the oommissioner went on with
Dut changing his tone:
"I'll think it over. You are one
f! those - reprobates who bring re
proach on the good name of the old
soldjer. I don't know yet just what
P'1l do in your case. I'm not quite
sure whether I ought not to put you
into the penitentiary. As it looks to
me now, I'm inclined to think I will.
Yes, fli think it over."'
COLUMBIA TO ORGIErOWN.
Te Boat Inoe Wi Be in Op' ration by
January 1 -Two Boatu Will be
Brought to the Congsree
Seady for Bumines
[ Cola. Cor. News and Courier.]
It is announced that the proposed
boat line between Columbia and
Georgetown, on the Congaree River,
will be in operation by January 1.
The public had about lost sight of
this enterprise from the fact that the
promoters have been saying little
about it, but they have been quietly
at work consideriag whether it would
be better to build two boats, the
number to be operated, or to pur
base them already built. Col. John
0. Haskell is in New York and he
will purchase two boats, which will
be brought here ready for business
at once. The company was in cor
responence with boat builders of
Charleston, Savannah and Norfolk
before deciding to buy in New York.
There has been some doubt as to
whether the line will pay, but one of
the stockholders said this morning
that three merchants who are also
tockholders will give the line their
business, and that will be snfficie'nt
to make the enterprise a paying one
if nobody else patronizes it, which
ertainly will not be the case. The
positive announcement that the line
ill be in operation by January is
the most important facts that will
interest citizens just now.
