J. S. GEIRSON, WELSIAI, J ,5 LOUISIANA. Why The Japs Are Strong. The Japanese are allowed to be among the very strongest people on earth. They are strong mentally and physically, and yet practically they eat no meat at all. The diet which enables them to develop such hardy frames and such well-balanced and keen brains consists almost wholly of rice, steamed or boiled, while the better-to-do add to this Spartan fare fish, eggs, vegetables and fruit. For beverages they use weak tea, without sugar or milk and pure water, al coholic stimulants being but rarely indulged in. Water is imbibed in what we should consider prodigious quantities-to an Englishman, indeed, the drinking of so much water would be regarded as madness. The average Japanese individual swallows about gallon daily in divided doses. The Japanese recognize the bene ficial effect of flushing the system through the medium of the kidneys, and they also cleanse the exterioj of thdir bodies to an extent undreamed of ýn Europe or America. Another-and perhaps this is the usage on which the Japanese lay the greatest stress-is that deep, habitual forcible inhalation of the fresh air is an essential for the acquisition of strength, and this method is sedulously practised until it becomes part of nature--Medical Record.

Mr. Jones immediately set about re modeling the building according to his own ideas and has ordered elevators, conveyors and other necessary ma chinery for converting rough rice into ground feed or clean ripe into flour. The machinery used in planing lum ber, of course, will be of no service in rice grinding, but will be replaced with modern machinery for the pur pose to which Mr. Jones expects to use it. Both the engine and the boiler are seventy-five horse-power and the capacity of the plant when completed will be about 400 sacks Rice, howev er, will not be ground exclusively, ao Mr. Jones will have separate bins for corn and oats as well, and conveyors and elavators will Ie arranged so that either of the three may be hand led in en instant. The three cereals may be ground together and an excel lent mixed feed the result. Red rice instead of being sold for one dollar a bag may be ground into feed equiva lentto that for which the farmer pays $4t for. Mr. Jones being a retail feed man, made a thorough investigation of ev ery detail of the project before con senting to engage in it. To the Jour nal he stated that from July, 1903, to July, 1904, feedstuff equal in weight to 25,000 bags of rice had been hauled out of Welsh by the farmers in this immediate section.

Groom of a Week Killed. Byron Colomy, a young rice farmer living six miles northeast of Gueydan, died Friday afternoon from injuries received while cutting rice with a binder. Both of Colomy's legs were badly lacerated, and he bled to death in about three hours. Colomy had alighted to clear the sickle of some obstruction and was standing in front of the machine when the horses became frightened and started. The sickle struck the un fortunate man in the legs lacerating both calves horribly. Dr. White and Dr. Seguir, of Gueydan, were sum moned, but it was impossible to save the injured man's life on account of the great loss of blood he had sus tained, Colomy was about 23 years old and was mutried only eight days before his death. His parents live near Guoydan. At a dance Saturday night at the home of Atiene Hardy, four miles southwest of Welsh, Adiol Derouen and Alex Demerest became engaged in an altercation and the former was severely out about the left arm.

The suit today alleges that four notes, two of *2.500 each, two of $5,0i00 each were given in pay ment, and it is upon these notes that the suit is brought. Messrs. Pujo & Moss are the at torneys for the plaintiff. The Central Oil & Refining Co., of W1ish, was organized about three yearis'o with $1,000,000 capitat. 1. H. Childs, of Marietta, Ohio, was the leading spirit of the enterprise, took most of the capital stock and it was announced that a new process for re fining oil, invented by him, would be used.

The board of directors of the May ville Plantation had a very im portant meeting Friday evning, says the Jennings Progress. It was decided, after much discussion to redeem 1,500 acres of land every year beginning next year. In the spring this land will be plowed and gotten in shape as if for seeding, but to be left idle. The next year it is to be again worked and this time seeded. It is thought that in this way a su perior rice can be raised. This will be done until the entire plantation is again bask into cultivation. The company also decided to make concessions to its planters, thus hoping to get betterresults. The compa nyhas already made arrangement with its renters for next year. The di rectors thatnight decided that rice would advance in price ere many months and so decided to hold all its rice for a tmne. The passenger department of the Southern Pacific is in receipt of a communication from W. H.
