The rallroada tappluK the rka countries are compelled, per forre of neeeaalty almoat. to make the rates muca leae advantageous to tno New Orleans mil than evei before. The resnlt la that rite can be milled and the business conducted with wore pro fit right In the home of the cereal. Through rates are given from these points, such points as Crowley s-d Jennings, almost as low, right through New Orleans, and there Is no advan tage whatever to the local dealer." Not only have the methods of hand ling" rice, but those for shipment of sugar, greatly changed during the past few years, the sugar refiners pos sessing no advantage in many cases by being located in New Orleans. Rail road people believe that the day Is not far distant when there will be fewer sugar refiners here as well as rice mills, and they, regret the necessity that has forced them Into such rate naming as bring about this action. If the rice millers of New Orleans decide to leave that city to And a more advantageous location, they will find that Beaumont Is tho proper place for them "to locate. A llttlo study of our' location and its advantages as a railroad center, with the further ad vantage of water transportation makes our city an Ideal place for a rice mill. The greatest advantage, however, Is that Beaumont is In the center of the rlc. producing area of tha United States. By consulting a map It will be found that the rice iands begin at Crowley, La., and extend wcHt beyond Houstonand that Beaumont Is cen trally located, and has transportation faolllUcs possessed by no other city in the rice belt. We already havo one trunk line north, the Port Arthur Route, and by the time the rice crop Is harvested, the Texas and New Or leans will be completed to Dallas, giv ing us direct connection with the great northwest. The Southern Paci fic east and west connection with the port of Galveston and water and rail communication with Port Arthur and Sabine Pass, both of whdh arc Beau mont Biiburbs, leave nothing io be de sired so far as transportation facilities are concerned. These are frits which rlc millers who muy be ft. .-d to leave New Orleans will do well to con sider. The state of Besjukovscntschiua in Russia Is probably the only pluce In the world that Is run entirely by wo men. This state Is made up of seven villages, each presided over by a may oress, the whole umlor the superin tendence of a lady named Suschka, who acts as president. There nre wo man magistrates, women preachers, women policemen; in fact, every ca pacity In the state Is filled hy women. The roads ana made by wmen and women sell milk and dl'vr Mters. If yon want to ting an action agnlnat Juar neighbor In that state you go to the woman lawyer, and If there Is any thing In your bouse to be stolen then a burglar of the weaker sex steals It. No place of any Importance is tilled hy a man. BTILWBLL KNOCKS OVT HATES. BL Louis Olobe-Dmocrat. Kansas City, Mo.. May 18. Arthur K.

But few people ale uware of the greut benefits that are to be derived from n trip to the Texas- Colorado (iisliKinu, and fortunate In deed will be the two teachers who win in this contest. One of the main attractions of the ChuiituiKiuu is the wonderful moun tain scenery of the region. It Is a rev- ilutiou to visitors whose lives have been pusHed at the seuslde or on the plains. Special arrangements have been made for patrons of the Chau- tiiiKiuii to enjoy these natural advan tages to their utmost. Professor W. T. l.ne, of tho University of Chicugo. has been engaged to conduct sight see ing parties into tho mountains and to deliver dally lectures upon nature. He Is familiur with the region, having spent several years upon government and private expeditions in tho Rocky mountains. Ho will lecture in a moat interesting manner upon geology, bot any, zoology, and nature subjects which are right at hand In Colorado. Hu will conduct his classes to gold and silver mines within easy access of the Chautauqua, and will assist In nura berlcBs ways in making the excursions into the picturesque ennons most en joyable The professor's lectures will be delivered principally In the open air, under the bluo canopy of heaven, and always within sight of the sub llmoBt workB of nature. .

Of course thoae who come first get the best selection, but there nre no old stale goods In stock. Everything is fresh nnd new. NOTICE OF SPECIAL STOCKHOLD ERS' MEETING.

Compliments of Dan Tannage's Sons . I. company, rsew iui. The demand opened at lacgard gun but steadily quickened during the week and at the round up. Including sules to Porto Rico, the aggregate closely approximate the highest rec ord of tho year. Stocks hereabouts arc quite liberal but held at strong fig ures. Some considerable per cent is being carried for account and risk of southern shippers and is practically out of market by reason of extreme limiti! placed thereon. Advices from primary markets note Independence and indifference among first hands In the matter of marketing sales therefrom small and principal ly of grades not elsewhere obtainable. Good business, however, Ib leported as doing from speculative and other sec ond hands. No inconsiderable num ber appear to have purchased iu excess of possible requirements on the port of their own trade, for with harden ing prices, stock Is coming out from unexpected quarters. Assortments among these last are broken and all outside holdings will probably be clean ed out by close of the present month. Contrary conditions seem to be follow ing the new crop; with superabund ant rainfall, growth of grass Is rank and cultivation Is generally retarded. In the Georgetown district, South Car olina, there have been most destruct ive freshets nearly all of the April planting so badly dnmnged as to neces sitate re-seeding. Cables and correspondence from ab road note enlarging activity, but op erations, Individually considered, show ultra conservatism and are only under taken to meet early requirements. .
