Ion of Delaware.
He had been ill for a long time

26th ult, was not unexpected.
Mr. Long was a public spirited
man, a good citizen, husband and
parent, and the large attendance at
the funeral attested the high esteem

City Council. 1
An adjourned meeting of the city
council was held last Monday even
ing, for the consideration of some
matters that were left over from the
regular meeting.
The matter of veneering the build
ing at the rear of W. N. Boynton's
store was referred to the building
committee, with power to act. The
Hollister Lumber Co. was allowed a
bill for materials in the sum of $313.
34, and also the bill of'Victor Col
lard for §55.00.
The principal business considered
was the hearing of petitions from
property owners ns to the manner in
which the paving contract was com
plied with by the contractor, M. Ford.
At the outsetj-City Attorney Norris
explained the position of the city in
the matter. He said that if the con
tractor has failed to carry out his
contract that the city stands ready
to co-operate with the property own
ers in seeing that the work is done
in accordance with the contract be
fore it is accepted and paid for by
the city. For the benefit of the
property o.vners present, the con
tract was read. Objections were
made to the various items by J. E.
Davis, Wm. and Geo. Barr and Hugh
Clemans. A suggestion was made
by W. II. Hutchinson that the pav
ing was not laid to grade, and that
a variance of from six to nine inches
between the established grjde and
the paving as laid. It was explained
that this was made necessary in
order to connect the paving laid
this year with that laid last year
without making a step or a pro
nounced incline in the street. Mr.
Hutchinson complained that in rais
ing the giade of the street in front
of his property, his lot would, if he
raised his bcrme to conform with the
street grade, slope toward his house
and water would run into his cellar
windows. Further objecting, the
property owners said that the re
quired amount of crushed rock was
uot used, that the sand was not
(lushed in, that the two inch sand
cushion was not rolled, and the
broken brick were not discarded as
required by the specifications. The
discussion between the property
owners and the council continued
until a late hour, and all seemed to
be of one mind on the proposition
that if the contractor has violated
his contract he must be compelled
to make it good. That he shall hot
be paid until it is made good, but
that when the contract is complied
with or if the work is now completed
according to contract, it shall be
paid for according to the contract
between the city and Mr. Ford.

How We Farm Rice in Southwest
Twenty years ago one Maurice
Bryne, a Delaware county farmer,
moved to Jennings taking his family,
and among his farming implements
a twine binding harvester, which,
with little alteration was used suc
cessfully in rice harvesting. This
was a revolution, as rice had always
been harvested (since Adam) with a
sickle then threshed with a club.
Using machinery made it possible
to grow 100 acres as easily as one
before, and more rice meant more
water, as rice must now be grown on
_hard, dry, solid, clay loam, upon a
hard pan subsoil to hold water, and
use heavy machinery and teams
when water is turned off. Then
these farmers, largely from Iowa,
(wheat farmers) conceived the idea
of farming rice on Louisiana prairies
as they farmed wheat on the Iowa
prairies, and now with 1,000 miles
of canals, 100o deep wells' for flood
ing, and crude oil for power, and
with 4,000 harvesters, 500 threshers
and more than 60 rice mills for pre
paring rice for markot-, they are
using more machine and less hand
labor than other farmers. And with
what result? An industry that less
than twenty years ago was measured
by one hundred thousand dollars, is
to-day twenty millions of dollars.
But yon ask, what are the profits
compared with wheat farming?
Before answering, it is said that
comparisons are sometimes odious.
We have no such intent. In Iowa,
wheat farming has been changed to
stock farming which is better, and
to be fair our comparison will be
with the better system of farming as
followed now. Visiting a modern
Iowa fnrm Of 400 acres I noted its
methods and estimated results. The
farm is devoted to feeding stock, say
25-co,ws and'100 hogs. The cash
results will be sales of milk or
cream and hogs without detail:
cows will give In milk and cream 40 $1000

Rice 400 acreB gives an average
of ten sacks 4000 sacks, sells at
§3 -ft= §12000. By our system A
goes to the tenant §6000, and .V to
land owner who also furnishes seed,

safest of all crops. As to hand labor

Two Men Shoot at Each Other While
Confined In an Express Car—
Both Badly Hurt.
Chicago, Sept. 28.—Locked in a Pa
cific express ear, two Chicagoans
fought a bloody revolver duel, as the
Wabash train bearing them, bound
for St. Louis, sped ou its way from
Chicago. Dodging behind packages,
both tiring at every opportunity, they
sought to kill each other. When the
train drew into Decatur, Edward
Greene, remitly of Hammond, lnd„
opened the car door and fell out. So
badly hurt was he that he could not
run as he tried to do. Within the car
John E. Kyan, express messenger,
whose family lives at 3(520 West Six
ty-fourth place, lay wounded three
times, unable to rise.

"and we fought." "We are old irienus.
