TME RICE INDUSTRY. to Gustave Jahn, a wealthy planter, having interests in Louisiana and Texas, but living in New York, passed through New Orleans on his way to inspect his Texas mill located at Beaumont. He com mented on the condition of the rice-raising industry of this State, and said that rice is the most profi table of crops raised in this State, ilo said that irrigation was the problem that would have to be solved, and that in order to attain the very best results from rice cul ture, the farmers would have to orrect their methods with regard the selection of seed and tho details of the gathering and culti vation of the crop. He said that the rico used in tho island of Porto Rico comes almost entirely from the City of New Orleans. Dangeron * if Neglected .

A book just issued by Reverend Thomas Dixon entitled "The Leop ard's Spots," on the future of the American negro, is bringing forth much comment over the entire country. The noted divine is most bitter in his utterances against the race, and while in most instances his assertions are too true, his idea of deporting the negro from this country is as preposterous as his predictions of their menace to the South are exaggeiated. Following are a few quotations from the book : The future American must be an Anglo-Saxon or a mulatto! We are now deciding which it shall be. The future of the world depends upon the future of this republic. The republic can have no future if racial lines are broken and its proud citizenship sinks to the level of a mongrel breed of mulattos. The South must fight this battle to a finish. Two thousand years look down upon the struggle, and two thousand years of the future bend low to catch the message of life or death! * * * Cet rid of the negro Î Ye gods, that would be a task ! The negro is the sentimental pet of the nation. Puc him on a continent alone, and he will sink like an iron wedge to the bottomless pit of bar barism * * The African has held one-fourth of the globe for 3,000 years. He has never taken one step in progress or rescued one jungle from the ape aud the adder except as the slave of a superior race. * * He has had one hundred years of trial in the Northern States of this Union, with every facility of culture and progress, and he has uot produced one man who has added a feather's weight to tho progress of humanity. The more you educate, the more impossible yon make his position in a democracy. Can you change the color of his skin, the kiuk of his hair, the bulge of his lips, the spread of his nose with a spelling bookî The negro is the human donkey. You can train him, but can't make of him a horse. Mate him with a horse, you lose the horse aud get a larger donkey called a mule, incapable of pre serving his species. What is called our race predjudice is simply Cod's first law of nature—the instinct of self-preservation. Two great questions shadow the future of the American people— the conflict between labor and capital aud the conflict between the African and Anglo-Saxou races. The greatest, most dangerous and most hopeless of these is the latter. The towering figure of the freed negro has beeu growing more and more ominous, until its menace overshadows the devastation of the South, throwing the blight of its shadow over future generations, a veritable black death for the land aud it« people. Sciatic itheuMatinm i' nrctl After Fourteen Years of Suffering . "I have been afflicted with sciatic rheu matism for fourteen years," says Josh Edgar, of Germantown, Cal. "I was able to be around but constantly suffered. I tried everything I could hear of and at lut was told to try Chamberlain's Pain Balm, which I did and was immediately relieved and in a short time cured, and I am happy to say it has not since re turned." Why not use this liniment and get well? It is for sale by Jas. A.Lee, Druggist. GROWING IN INTEREST. The New York Herald comments on the fact that when Mr. Richard son, the Demooratic leader of the; House, called the attention of the i Ways and Means Committee to the extortions of the Beef Trust and asked if something could not be done to give the people relief, ho "was met with indefinite replies and on motion Mr. Dal/.ell an im mediate adjournment was taken." The Herald declares that it is im possible for the Republican party to plav the ostrich role in the mat ter. Mr. Richardson was aiming to reduce the tariff taxes on meat so as to bring in the element of competition against tho trust, lint the friends of the meat combine would have none of it. The Her ald says : "Having an assured tariff mono poly of the home market, the trust exacts its own terms from the unfortunate home consumer, wlnlo shipping over his head enormous quantities to be sold abroad in open competition in non free trade commnnties. Thus in the eight months ending with February no less than 210 millions of pounds of fresh beef were shipped abroad, besides 73 millions of pounds in canned and pickled form. Then for tho benefit of the trust a duty of if» per cent is im posed on hides—the raw material of a great American industry—with a resulting tax on every man, wo man and child that wears a pair of shoes. For its benefit, also, wo have a minimum duty of 2 cents a pound on glue, a duty of •5U cts. on manufactures of horn, anil so on. "Off with the duty ou meats to beginwith! If the trust is going to ship them out of the country by hundreds of thousands of tons, give the hungry American con sumer a chance to at least compete on even terms with foreigners for this necessary of life in the world's open market !"

Tho publication con tains comprehensive data regarding the geography, resources, climate, people, occupations, civil divisions, etc., of the island, and is illus trated by maps and plates showing distribution of population and prod ucts. It says the mineral resources, so far as developed, consist entirely of hematite oro, which has been mined for many years a few miles east of Santiago. Nearly all of the ore, which con tains about (»2 per cent of iron, is shipped to tho United States. As phaltum has been found in several places. There were in 1 HDD GO,711 farms with an average size of 14!5 acres and an average cultivation area of thirteen acres. Mantanzas aud Habana proviuces are tho most highly cultivated parts of the island. Of tho cultivated area less per'cent was owned by its occu pants. Sugar cane occupies 47 per cent of the cultivated lands. There were in Cuba in 189'.), 207 sugar mills, or Centrals, producing daily 61,407 bags of sugar. There were also Hf> stills, with a daily capacity of 161,751 gallons. For transportation tho island dopends on very poor wagon roads and 1,100 miles of railways. No ijohs of Time .
