The M~id-Louisiana Again.
[Baton Rouge Capitolian.]
Since the publication of "On
ward's" communication in our
Tuesday's edition, we have re
ceived information which leads
us to the belief that capital can
be obtained to build the propos
ed Mid-Louisiana Railway, start
ing from a point on the Sabine,
in Calcasieu, thence through
Opelousas and Baton Rouge
to' Poutdhatoula, continuing
through St. Tammany to Bay
St. Louis, there connecting with
the Mobile road, in the manner
heretofore described. The route
would be shorter by at least fifty
miles between Opelousas and
New Orleans than the Morgan
line. It would be in effect a
central Texas short line for both
Mobile and New Orleans, offer

We doubt not that the jour
nals of Opelousas, Lake Charles,
Baton Rouge, Ponchatoula, Cov

tant matter to their parishioners,
in order that they may express
t"heir views and be ready to meet
and confer with the earnest and
active representatives of the
Mid-Louisiana Railway, who will
shortly visit them.

People who, by reason of dam
age to the crops, may be appre
hensive of a short supply of
breadstuffs, will be comforted by
the information that there is no
danger of a famine. The eleva
tors at Chicago are full to over
flowing. Storage for grain not
obtainable. In Baltimore the
elevators are full and miles of
railway cars filled with grain are
on side-tracks. In Cincinnatisto
rage in elevators or grain ware
houses is not to be had, and rail
way cars have been here weeks
unable to unload. Further
more, corn was handled here
yesterday that is five years old.
At stations on railroads leading
to this city corn is being brought
in that is two and three years
old. Farmers who held over
wheat and corn because of low
prices, have struck a good mar
ket, and we are informed that
current receipts would be much
larger than they are, but for the
scarcity of storage and the in
ability of railiroads to furnish
Once upon a time a certain
man got mad at the editor and
stopped his paper. The next
week he sold his corn at four
cents below the market price.
Ihen his property was sold for
taxes, because he didn't read the
sheriff's sales. He was arrested
and fined $8 for going hunting
onn Sunday, simply because he
didn't know it was Sunday; and
he paid $300 for a lot of forged

We would have every true
,man build for himself a home,
be it ever'so humble in its be
ginning. Industry and frugality
and good judgment will make of
it the most lovely spot of earth.
The man without a home is like
a sojourner without a country.
The richest, happiest, and the
best man in the wide world is he
who has a pretty, comfortable
home of his own, a family, good
health, and owes no man a cent,
even though his entire worldly
possessions would not sell for a
thousand dollars, and though he
has never held so high an office
as town constable or roadmas
We sometimes feel constrain
ed to doubt whether a man with
out a home can at best be but
an indifferent citizen and a more
indifferent platriot. He can not
feel that interest in other peo
ple's real prosperity that he feels
in his own, and without such
property we could have no coun
try worthy a name. He would
scarcely care to risk his life in
dlefense of the heartstone of his
landlord, but let that heartstone
be his own and woe to the inva
der who should threaten it with
desecration. The homes of the
people are the strength of the
State. Build them, beautify
them, own them, and be happy.
This is the fair deduction from
hosts of instances and is the true
philosophy of home making and
Dr. Paul Jacoby, a learned
Frenchman, has published a
book in France upon Heredity,
which seems to have created
considerable stir among the sa
vants and great men. It is the
an tipod(les of Darwinism. Instead
of the evolution of higher types
from lower, including man, Dr.
Jacoby shows that the Homers,
Shakespeares, Dantes, Miltons
and Bonapartes of the race
speedily die out and disappear.
The penalty which greatness
pays for fame is the rapid ex
tinction of the family of the il
lustrious man. Great men spring,
it appears, not from other great
men, but from the middle classes,
the bourgeois of the world; the
men of strong muscle, sound
sleep, regular habits, honest pur
poses and clean hands; in short,
from the honest workers who
toil and hope. It is from such
that genious springs; and force,
ambition, labor and "eternal pa
tience," as Michael Angelo ex
presses it, are the results. The
survival if the fittest, forsooth!
The fittest, if by this is meant
the greatest, don't survive. They
die. Where, indeed, are the des
cendants of our Washington.
Franklins, Jeffersons, Madisons,
Marshalls, Websters, Clays and
Caihonns? Echo answers, where?
,Tis well. There is hope for me
The Gardener's Monthly calls
attention to the recently demon
strated fact that a dead branch
on a tree makes almost as great
a strain on the main plant for
moisture as does a living one.
This may account for the fail
ure of fruit growing in this
.country. A little care may pro
long the life of the trees and
produce better fruit.
REDUCED RAILROAD RATES.
On the first of September the
passenger fare on the Louisiana
Western Railroad was reduced
from six to five cents per mile.
We are informred a reduction in
freight rates will also be effected
soon. This news will be grati
fying to the public, aniFthe busi
ness and profit of the road will
increase with each reduction of
freight and passenger rates.

New-Orleans is filled with pre
served fruits and vegetables put

raised here of equal quality, if
not better. A reform in this
whole business is greatly to be
desired, and the time, we think,
has fully come for this new de

Louisiana could supply the
whole United States with dried
figs. The trees grow without
any cultivation, or very little.
