Our Oil Industry.
The bringing in of the new oil gusher
at Jenninges has occasioned no little
amount of enthusiasm, not only to the
people of Jennings but to the entire
Southwestern portion of Louisiana. It
verifies the belief that oil existed in
this section and satisfies the minds of the
skepical ones that it oxists in payi
quantities. The Jennings 'oil promises
to become a strenuous competitor of the
Beaumont fluid. Tne fact that its qual
ity is equal to that of the Spindle Top
product affords it an advantage in the
ma*et of Southwest Louisiana, as it is
nearer and may be obtained at a smaller
cost. Oil has now supplanted coal in the
way of fuel and the large rice and su
gar mills of this state and the big city
of New Orleans, with its numerous fac
tories and its steamship and railroad
lines, will utilize many millions of bar
rels of the Louisiana product.
This should inspire those who have
chare of the work of drilling here to
;,, ' continue their work with renewed inter
est. - With a little persistency and cap
ital .their efforts may be amply compen
sated, as the article thus far obtined
an4 the general indications substan
tiant the belief that oil abounds under
y 15 the. surface of Welsh soil equal to o"
15 as superior to that found at Jennings. The
rorld. is a rapid increase in the use of oil as
ead- fuel and a good market may be found
in all parts of the world for the article
cot of ol6 that undoubtedly exists here at
ry, it Welsh. , Lc
oe of We, hope the gentlemen who are pro- m
urted motleg the oil industry of this city will l
push 'the -matter to the end and thus otth

Japan farmers of his country are confronted by
meth- a condition of affairs which, to say the
is that least, is tecldedly unplessant and which

claes of people he has in mind have
pothing in common with the cheap class
of Chinese who have caused so much
trouble on the Pacific coast. They are
exzpet rice and fruit growers and their
knowledge of these two industries would
be of great worth to any section they
settled in. Mr. Uehite also looked into
the laws of Texas relative to home- 1
steads, the schools and all such mat
n ters which go to make or mar the so
s cial life of the farmer.
Everyone who met the distinguished
Oriental was impressed with his courtly

ee Boiler Explosion.
Saturday morning at 6 o'clock, while
Eton Hoffpaunir, son of Howard Hoff
),- paur, residing nine miles south of
of Rayne, was getting up steam in his en
ug gine the boiler exploded, knocking the
it engine all to pieces. Fortunately young
let Hoffpauir had stepped away a short dis
g tance, else he would have been killed out
i right. As is was, he was not hurt much
iln beyond being scalded about the arms
se- and breast. Some of the pieces of the
led engine broke down the wire fence near
by and smashed everything else around.
