CURE FOR RICE DISEASES. Government Experts Discuss Prob lem and Ways for its Solution. Rice growers in the south and the trade as a whole suffer frQp the dam age done to the growing crop, the grain in the shock, and the milled product 'in storage or transit by' a fungus that causes "stack burn," "stain," or yellow grain." The prob lem and possible ways for its solu tion are discussed in Department Bul letin 1116, seedling blight and stack hurn of rice and the hot-water seed treatment, by W. H. Tisdale, recent ly published by the United States De partment of Agriculture. Although much damage is done by the decrease in viabilty of the seed grain due to the fungus, the greatest damage is caused by the staining and decay of the grain in shock and in storage. Experiments by the department have shown that the fungi carried within the graincan be killed by treat ment with hot water without injur ing the viability of the seed if proper methods are used. From- a commer cial standpoint some sort of treatment fr rice shipped r stored under warm, moist conditions is desirable, but the hot-water methd is too labrious and expensive. The department suggests that a process of drying under tem peratures that .ill kill the fungi and not injure the.texture of the grain may be possible. But the most prom ising solution of all these troubles is - thought to be in the development of I resistant strai:} and varieties. Persons interested in the details of these rice problems may get a copy of the bulletin by addressing the De nartment of Agriculture, Washington, s D. C.

The fest ities began at 9 o'clock when the first number from Claiborne Wil liams' melodious orchestra was ren dered. From the first dance to the last the floor of the large hall was ab solutely covered with dancers, many note being able to find room and stood or sat the numbers out. The "Jolly Corkers," formerly, "The Millionaires Club" attended the dance in a body, each wearing the emblem of the organization, a cork tied with ribbon, on his coat lapel. The new name for the well known organization was properly chistened at the dance. At 10 o'clock a special program was rendered which was received with much pleasure by the great crowd present. Miss Agnes Landry gave a beautiful exhibition of fancy dancing while Miss Jeanne Fortier on the piano and Miss° Thelma Dill with the violin rendered several musical num bers with rare artistic' skill. All the special program numbers were hearti ly applauded and enchores were de manded. The big affair was carried out without a hitch, everyone present vQted it one of the best times they ever enjoyed, and from a financial standpoint it was a most magnificent success and the receipts have given the Carnival Association a big boost. The entire event was in charge of four of Donaldsonville's hustling young ladies being Misses Royal Casso, Enola Richard, Rosalie Landry and Mrs. Henry Kocke. These young ladies worked for days to make the dance a success and their indefatiga ble labors were rewarded by the un stinted response that the Donaldson ville public gave to the affair on Christmas night. The young ladies were ably assisted by the executive committee of the association. The association has received from the dance the sum of $263.60 which has been deposited to the Mardi Gras fund. The gross receipts of the en tertainment was $315.40 and the ex penses $51.80. BATON ROUGE MAYOR DIES.

That :there isa n opo xtunity for at present many farmers and citizeng growing this luscious fruit. Some of the orange trees in this section are as large as apple trees and bear lux uriantly. The Louisiana sweet is one of the favorite variety raised here. If the Louisiana sweet will grow and bear in this section, there is no k doubt that the satsuma will flourish in this climake. This variety of orange has been grown to a successful finan i cial result in much colder climates and on poorer soil. The satsuma is I at present calling the attention of 1 farmers in the cutover pine lands 3 section of the state and the first ex periments have proven most success ful. In an interview regarding the prospects of the satsuma in and about Lake Charles, Attorney Sam Jones. clerk of the commission council of e DeRidder, who grows and is a sat suma boster, told a reporter for the American-Press of Lake Charles that T. S. Granberry a nurseryman in his town, had disposed of between 00 and 2000 trees to farmers in his see r tion at one sale -on December 1. He says this nurseryman is planning to y put 22,000 trees orr the marekt next year. In speaking of the industry Mr. Jones said: L "I am not prepared to give out any a definite information just at this time what is or will be done in an or e ganized way toward starting a sat I- suma industry in Beauregard parish L. on a big scale, but it is safe to say 1- that there is much. excitement among d our farmers and business men over i- Mr. Granberrys' discoveries and that ,o the world will hear from us before is long. y. "The trees Mr. Granberry is get. ting ready for 1923 will bear within two year after being taken from the nursery, but Mr. Granberry advises to pluck the blooms the first year,, t they offer to bear that they may not le be stunted in growth. Mr. Granberry 'e himself will plant out forty acres in ie 1923." 1e If the industry is of so much irnm e portance and can be so successful it? dt the cutover pine land, it certainly should flourish much better in the it, rich soil of the Jeanerette section,, Big Public Sale, A big.public sale will be put on at the Donaldsonville Racket StorE, cov ner of Railroad avenue and Charles street, beginning Monday, January I. The entire stock of the concern is ad vertised to be sold under all order issued-by the National Sales Synd.i cate, and E. R. Taylor, its well known salesmanager will be in charge.
