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

an indutr,\ entirely new in the rice
belt and on, that should prove a boon
and in fact if followed up by enter
prising men in other portions of the
belt should completely revolutionize
the rice industry in generaly.
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

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

may be ground together and an excel

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

the injured man's life on account of
the great loss of blood he had sus

alleged by plaintiffs to have been
sold by them to defendants.
S. M. Scott is president of the de
fendant company and it. H. Childs
is general manager. The suit alleges
that some property in Rlobinson's
subdivision of the east half of the
northeast quarter of section 2, town
ship No. 9, range 5, was sold to the
defendants. The suit today alleges
that four notes, two of *2.500 each,
two of $5,0i00 each were given in pay

the suit is brought.
Messrs. Pujo & Moss are the at

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

most of the capital stock and it was
announced that a new process for re

used. The company has a number of
buildings erected and some machinery
The foregoing taken from the Lake
Charles mnierican chronicles the in
stitution of a suit in which is in
volved amost forty acres of land
valued at $15,000, and the outcome
will be awaited with interest by many.
When the central oil and Refining
Company wilh its million doller cap
ital was organized over a year ago
fifteen lots consisting of two and a
half acres each, were bought of
Messrs Robinson and Davidson for
a consideration of $15,000, two thirds
or $10,000 of which to have been paid
for in Central Oil refining stock pro
vided the plant was in opration by
May 1, 1903. The plant is yet !n
complete and not operating.
Messrs Robinson and Davidson
allege they have a vendor's lien on
the property and therefore ask for a
writ of seizure to satisfy claims. They
Salso ask for 5 per cent on $5,000 from

Mayville to Redeem Land.
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. Danforth,
president of a cereal food manufactur
ing concern, saying that he and one
of his head men are preparing to
make a trip of inspection of the rice
belt, and further, they have plans to
make a new rice breakfast food and
make of cheap grades a commercial
stock food, for horses, cows, etc
The trip will be during October.

Southwestern Rice Company Sued,
The first of the annual suits for
water rental by the canal companies
has been filed in the clerk's otffice in
Lake Charles, says a dispatch from
that city. The title is The Southwes
tern Rice Co. vs. Wmi. R. Conklin
for a sequestration of a sufficient
amount of the crop to pay the water
rental of one fifth, which is being
held by the plaintiff presumably be
cause the supply of water was stop
ped about the middle of June on ac
count of its becoming salty.
The land in question contains i;30
acres, and is in five different tracts
in sections 19, 10, 13 and 23 in town
ship 11 range 4: sections 23, 26 and
27 in township 11 range 5; and section
24 in township 11 range 5.
The amount asked for in the petition
is $15,500, for which the petitoner
states that he has a lien on the crops
for water rent. The petition states
that water was supplied for the diff.
erent tracts up till the middle of June
when it was stopped, as the pumping
of salt water which was then comin
up would ruin the crops.
