The rice planters of this parish La
met at the Courthouse last Satur- Cand
tday Rice growers from all sections teres
of the parish attended the meeting. Stan
iThe. Rice Growers' Association
l ad representatives on the ground
to explain the object of the meet- the
ing and this part of the program entit
was accorded to H. L. Gueydan Miss
and Worthy Quereaux. The prop- Mab
osition of pledging one-fifth of Can
the present crop to the Louisiana d
and Texas Rice Growers' Associa-ro
tion, to be disposed of by that acte
organization, by export, to the man
best interest of the industry, was man
received by the ricemen present. Si
A great number of contracts fere
were displayed at this meeting, a coni
few of which represented about we
70,000 acres of rice in different '
sections of Louisiana, the one- han
- fifth of which will exceed 100,000 awl
bags to be handled by the associa- 1
The planters controlling this Brc
- vast acreage of rice did not hesi- sa
tate to pledge one-fifth of their to 4
present crops to the Rice Growers Pri
.Association to be exported.
The prospects for a heavy yield ed
in rice is the best this parish has de(
had for a number of years. The col
.average yield of eight and one
half bags per acre, as given by the Ba
rice association, will be greatly th
exceeded this year if harvesting an

Farm andl Fireside, an ae-ric v;
tural paper published at S i:t
field, Ohio, contains in its c - ,:nt
number an interesting accon lt of
farm life as viewed from the
standpoint of women. The author
of the article (a woman) says that
as the farm becomes more pros
perous, the farmer has more
help---both men and machinery,
while the work of his wife .is
increased---more people to cook
and wash dishes for, more fruit,
more chickns and milk to attend
to. In the majority of cases the
farmer's wife does not have help
Sas her work becomes heavier. The l
author goes on to say:
'It is a statistical fact that farm
women die earlier than do farm
men, and that those who survive May
the years of drudgery break in Mair
health sooner than do the men.The States
t opposite is true in town. There is la
no doubt in my mind that the respan
biggest factoy in the development lookin)
of this state of affairs is the woeful situatii
Slack of labor-saving contrivances the bo
Sin the farm woman's home. Many Coulet
houses in the country are still swam

Ssavers---a kitchen sink, a sink along
y with a pump or faucet and pith enpti
Sa drain leading out from it. The that t]
e carrying in and out of water is the inped
e most laborious and back-breaking the w
task of all the hard tasks belonging and p
to the house-keeper." ness

It was claimcd by the farmers
along Crooked Styx Coulee, which ,
empties into Grosse Isle Coulee, h
that the oomn acts as a dam and i:
impedes the free passage of,
the water, thus flooding their crops
and pastures. From the thorough
