With but very few ex ceptions, where the rice is stacked, the grain is all threshed. The re ceipts here have bsen 584,160 bags, and tins will probably go to 700,000 or over before spring, Innumerable small warehouses will be found over the country, while along the C....I. and at all Manor,, on lb. branch road are larger ones, and they are, nearly all full of rice. The greater part ot this will come to Crowley to be milled, and m this way the receipts will be greatly augmented. "There will be much more milling this yea-," said a heavy raser of. a a to in a • rice to-day 'Tbe crop is laiger, ot course, bit were t the same as las* year there would be more ot it inill ^d here. Tins is especially true ot the red rices. Much of this quality that shows a generous sprinkling of red when milled presents a much I better appearance. The red in many instances disappears in the process of milling, and brings a bet ter price.' "Tne mills here will be kept busy until late in the spring aud will bare a moat successful! season.'
