R LUIIAA To Take Issue With Kahn. Hon. W. H. McFaddin of the Mc Faddin, Wiess & Kyle Rice Milling company of Beaumont, has taken up the gauntlet thrown down by Henry Kahn, president of the National Rice Mills, of New Orleans, and is engaged in the preparation of an article which will shortly be given to the press, in which Mr. McFaddin will endeavor to refute Mr. Kahn's arraignment of rice toll milling and show wherein the system as practiced by the mills is not prejudicial to the rice farmers' interests, as claimed by Mr Kahn. Mr. McFaddin was seen by a news paper correspondent and asked for an expression touching Mr. Kahn's article, in which the challenge to buy the farmers' rice at a certain price per sack was published to the world. But Mr. McFaddin did not care to be quoted on the matter at present, but stated that he was engaged in pre par ing an article which will be given Out under his own signature and will efute some of the contentions so in 2 striously circulated by Henry Kahn Pan:md Colonel S. M. Scott, of Beau emont. Mr. McFaddin is justly re ,;ga'rded as an authority on all matters pertaining to rice, and his fortheom l.)ig communication is one that will be read with much interest by all con 't'irned or interested in the great rice School Opens Next Week -i!i:td owing to the delay you should be , qauilpped the first day and ready for 4. ool work.

The side track from the main line to the Gulf rice mill has been completed, but in nowise through the courtesy of the railroad company. The Gulf Rice Milling Company asked for switching privileges when the matter of building a new mill was first contemplated, and the answer was to build on the site of the Welsh rice mill that was destroyed by fire. A poorer location could not have been selected and the proposition was declined and a site selected east of town. The railroad company re fused to build a siding, and the rail road commission was appealed to in a vain hope of inducing the company to build the track, Mr. Miller having made two trips to Baton Rouge to confer with members of the commis sion, but that body refused to inter fere. The mill was therefore compelled either to build the track or haul its output a distance of a half mile to the depot to be shipped. Finest Penman of the South.West.

Tihe separator was in muotion and young Morgan reched his left arm through the belt!ag near a rapidly re volving pulley to remedy a defect and in some way h6i clothirg caught in the belt. In an iistant he was caught in the big plul l,v and before the machine could be ,jopped was twisted into every concei'vable shape. Those employed about the machine i ran to his assistance and took him to the home of Bert Longenbach, nearby, in an unconscious condition. Dr. J. 1H. Cooper, of Welsh, was hurriedly suimmoned and upon arriving there made a hasty examination of the young man's condition and found that the collar bone was broken and the left arm broken in two places, once near the shoulder and the other near the elbow His head was badly bruised and after regaining consciousness complained more of his right arm paining him than the mangled left. Dr. Cooper set the broken bones and rendered other medical assistance. Sunday a second visit was made and reported his patient resting easily and doing as nicely as could be expected. Young Morgan was unconscious for over two hours. . ... .. • -~ - A special from Lake Charles Fri day says: An old negro, a former slave, Benjamin Small, is perhaps one of the oldest negroes living to day.

The case of the state of Louisiana ex rel M. R. Stewart vs D. J. Reid was called for trial on the exception Wednesday and a continuance was asked for by the defendant's attorneys on the ground that all the council was not present. The defendant's at torneys, Messrs. R. H. Odom and McCoy & Moss, filed the motion for continuance on account of the absence of the other attorneys for the defense, Judge Clegge, of New Orleans, and Messrs. Cline & Cline, of this city. M. R. Stewart, acting district at torney in the case, offered a motion that E. Howard McCaleb, of New Orleans, be placed on record of coun cel for plaintiff. Judge Miller granted a continuance in the case until October 28, and de clared from the bench that both sides must be ready for trial at that time. The exception to be argued before court contain, among other things an exception to the right ot Judge Miller to appoint an acting district attorney, and to the elegibility of M. R. Stewart to act as such on account of his pre vious employment by the citizens who signed the petition for the removal of Mr. eid from office.-American. The managers of the Eagle planta tion, northeast of Welsh, according to the Jennings Progress, have de cided to raise a bunch of sheep on their second growth rice. The har vest on the plantation was early and already there is excellent pasture. A few days ago 1000 sheep were purchas ed and the plantation is now being stocked with them. This is another sign of progress in the rice belt. i ('odt tn in 4'ieasiin. A Jennings person is advertising for fifty cotton pickers. 'Tihat dot sn't sound as though ('aleasieu is an ex clusive rice growing puarish. Let others try a hand at it. Says the Jennings Times-Ilecird: "The Cary cotton gin was again in operation Tuesday. U'p to the end of last week there had been seventeen bales ginned this year. On Friday eight bales were run through, four of them being for farmers residing near Elton. These men received cash for their cotton which turned loose about $250 in cash, most of it being spent in Jennings. This simply shows how easy it is to turn cotton into money. "It seems that the farmers around Elton and Oberlin prefer to bring their cotton to Jennings instead of taking it to the Oberlin gin as it costs them only 35 cents per hundred pounds to have it ginned here 'whereas at Ober lin it would cost them 50 cents per hundred. "C. C. Cary says that all the cotton ginned here this year is of fair quality or what cotton experts would term middling.'" Those who experimented with cotton this year in the vicinity of Welsh are highly pleased with the results and and will increase the acreage next year. E. J. Miller has twenty acres on the Mayville plant, and E. Scharff, C. A. Austin and J. W. Bower each have a small crop on their respective farms near town, the latter being within the city limits, and all are jubilant. Grow less rice, more cotton, corn and truck, stock your farms with hogs and cattle to consume the surplus for age, and within two or three years this section will'be the garden spot of the universe and your bank account will have grown to surprising propor tions. Notice to Rice Farmers. By the latter part of next week I will have in operation a mill to grind rice for feeding purposes at my feed store in Welsh, either for cash or on toll. H. M. WEST. Will Fight Levee Bill. A Gueydan dispatch says: As had been previously advertised, the Ex ecutive Committees of Vermillion, Cameron, Acadia and Calcasieu Par ishes, in opposition to the Mermentau Levee Bill, met Friday in joint ses sion, in the office of the Mutual Rice Mill, and formed one Central Execu tive Committee, domiciled at Gueydan, and from which point the fight against the bill will be forced. The Committee is composed of W. L. Doss, W. D. Spencer and J. H. Melvin, of Ver milion; J. M. Welsh and Adolph Theriot, of Cameron; E. E. Streeter, S. Marquet and St. Germain, of Cal casieu; Dr. Homer Chachere, B. F. Miriman, Dr. S. E. Brooks, Cleophas Amy and J. H. Deshotel, of Acadia. The meeting ratified the action in op position to the Mermentau Levee Bill already taken, as well as electing the following as the one Central Executive Committee: W. L. Doss, Chairman; J. H. Melvin, Secretary; H. L. Geuy dan, Treasurer; T. H. Winn, of Cal casieu; D. Homer Chachere, Acadia; J. M. Welsh, Cameron; W. D. Spence, Vermilion. Messrs. Doss, Melvin and Gueydan are of Ver milion. Several short talks were made by various delegates, the sub stance of which showed conclusively that no compromise of the advocators of the bill would be entertained, but that if it be necessary to carry the case to the highest court in the land to annul the bill, there it would be carried.

RUSSELL, JR. At Bell's Store Wild Gnshrr at Jennlngs. A dispatch to Wednesday's papers says: The Jennings oil field has an other wild well. This time it is the Tierce No. 3. The liner was set Mon day and the well was washed Tuesday morning. That afternoon the work of taking out the wash pipe was begun. Oil, gas and sand began to come out with a roar. The string of wash pipe was thrown up through the derrick, knocking out the crown block, and the pipe was tossed to a height of 400 feet. The well continued to throwv mud, sand and oil and gave a wonder ful ext.ibition of the immense gas pressure. The blowing up of the wash pipe ruined the derrick, and it collapsed at 3 o'clock Tuesday after noon. There is no way of shutting off the well and oil men say it will be a hard proposition to get it under control. Quicker Time to St. Louis Fair VIA MOBILE & OHIO RAILROAD.

In answer to the questions which are being asked in regard to purchas ing school books. I would beg to sug gest that no new books be bought at present. Since last year's work was so bar:ly interrupted and the last month lost entirely, it is evident tha; the work of the grades in which pup ils were then classed has not been tiu ished, and it will be necessary to com plete this work before entering ad vanced grades. All pupils who were in school at the close of last term are requested to return to their former teacher at the beginning of the term, taking with them such books as they were using when school was dismissed. Pupils who were not in school here last term, please report to the principal up stairs, east room. This arrangement will only be tem porary, as it is the aim of the present corps of teachers and the school of flicials to thoroughly grade the Welsh schools so as to get them on the basis of the best graded city schools. We ask the hearty co-operation of all the patrons and well wishers of our school, and to this end we urge that all children may be in attendance the first day if possible, as we expect to begin work then. A day lost can never be regained D. I,. READ, Principal Our Share of the Lump.
