BABIN IRRIGATION IN INDIA. We are given to boasting of our irrigation systems in Southwest Louis ian:a, and they are really magnificent cogineering works and on a liberal scale. From an account given by W. E. Curtis in the Chicago Record tHerald we learn that the irrigation canals in India are larger than ours and also that government control as our Populist friends contend-is cheaper than private ownership. The sys:tem is an admirable one, the land being laid out in one acre plots and 1,Z00 acres constituting a vil lags as it is termed. The chief engineer fixes the volume of water to be furnished to each vil lage and the period for which it is to remain flowing- The local superin tendent regulates the amount allowed each cultivator, according to the crop he hat planted. There are six rates, regulated by the crops, for some need more water than otheirs, as follows: Class. Crops. .a'te per nere. 1- Sugar cane...... .............. .....'.$2.50 2--Rice ................................. .2.10 3-Orchards. gardens, tobacco, ind'go vegetables and melons ............. 1.66 4-Cotton, oil seeds. Indian corn and all cold weather crops.except grain and lentils............................ 1.16 5--All crops other than specified above ............................. .83 6--Single water to plow, not followed by a crop ............................. .40 As I have shown you from the figures above, this enterpcise has proved highly profitabl to the gov ernrment, and its management is en titled to the highest complihments. The main canal was originally forty miles long, averaging 109 feet wide, with an average slope of one foot to the mile, and capable of carrying sdven feet four inches of water, or 10,000 cubic feet, per second. Twenty-eight miles have since been enlarged to a width of 250 feet and the remaining twelve miles to a width of 150 feet. The canal has been deepened to nine feet six inches, and the intention is to deepen it one foot more. The banks of the main cana are twenty-five feet wide at the top and are built entirely of eartn. A railway ninety six miles long of three foot guage has been constructed down the main canal, which is a great convenience in shipping crops and pays a profit to the governmenut. It was constructed by the canal engminee:s while the ditch was being dug. There are 300 miles of branch canals from thirty to fifty feet wide aud from six to eight feet deep, and 2,095 miles of distributaries,or ditch es running between villages and squares. The banks of the branches and ditches are all wide enough for highways, and thus enable the people to go from village to village and get their crops to market. Several towns of considerable size have already grown up; the largest, called Lyallpur, having about 10,000 inhibitants. It is the headquarters of the canal and also of the civil authorities; and scattered through the irrigated country are about 100 per manent houses used as residences and offices by the superintendents and engineers.

General Leon Jastremski contem plates publishing, in the near future, a six or eight pa:.e paper on a style similar to Brvants Commoner, in which he will discuss live local and national issues. The general will be the'sole promoter of the enterprise, and ivi!l be unhampered by a stock company or any other obstacle, which might in any way interfere with him in the `eerc.ie of free speech. Gen Jastremski has been in public life so long aed is so well kuowti throughout this state and country that the venture should be a profit able: one, and will, we opine, com mand a large circulation. The gen eral proposes to discuss issues on a lofty plane and in a vigorous, virile manner. What the name of the paper will be we have not learned, but tbat matters not. We will heart ily welcome the general back into, the fold, and wish him success. N'OMINATION. State of Louisiana.

He was wr-writin' th' r-railroaa items f'r th' Oosl~yloosky Dima cr.rat." The ladies who are wearing the latest style shoes in Napoleonville, declares the Pioneer, are up against a tough proposition. The heel of the shoe's pretty and iainty but, owing to its minute size, the ladie's exper ience much trouble when walking on our sidewalks which are full of large cracks. This is a strong argument in favor of paved walks and the ladies of Napoleonville should get up a Ipetition and present it to the Council. CARD OF THANKS. I take this method to express to our numerous"friends in the town of Abbeville, the sincere and hearty' thanks of Mrs. Isbell and myself, for the tender expressions of sympatbhy and many acts of kindness shown me during my recent illness. And to those excellent physicians Drs. Cushman and Schilling, who minis tered to me night and day ;so faith fu* and efficiently, we tender hearty thanks. R. S. IsasLL, P. C. M. E. Church South. Abbeville, La., Apijl 4th. Blood Feed pale girls on Scgtt'I Emulsion. We do not need to give all the reasons why Scott's Emulsion restores the strength and flesh and color of go&ld health to those who suffer from sick blood. The fact that it is tne best preparation of Cod Liver Oil, rich in nutrition, full of healthy stimulation is a suggestion as to why it does what it does. Scott's Emulsion presents Cod Liver Oil at its best, fullest in strength, least in taste. Young women in their "teens " are permanently cured of the peculiar disease of the blood which shows itself in paleness, weakness and nervous ness, by regular treatment with Scott's Emulsion. It is a true blood food and is naturally adapted to the curd of the blood sickness from which so many young women suffer. , We w. bne glad to endJ a sample to any suftfw Be sue that tF'e rctnrt ! the form of a lxbs. ;, o t. wrapper of every bo:lle Emulsion you buy.
