A good rain, beneficial to the fall plant, '.ccurred throughout m#t .of the su gar district and was followed by ideal grinding weather. The recent freeze had the effect of putting the bulk of the cane in the upper sugar parishes in windrow and of course the plant ers thus afflicted have good cause for complaint, but throughout the great er portion of the sugar district there seems to be entire satisfaction with conditions, and the cane has ripened under the low temperatures and is yielding well. Rapid work is being done, the weather being such as to permit it, and were it not for the dark brown color of the price, the su gar- planters' industrial sky would be bright. Your cough annoys you.
