"I , RIICE FIOUR POPULAR. L The Production is from the Indepen. Inc dent Rice Mill of Crowley. The manufacture of rice into flour to be used instead of wheat for all ceo purposes for which that cereal is em- les played, promises to create a new use at fos rice and one that will speedily the bring it into popular favor. Every- its body must use flour and when it is ac` known that rice nmakes equally as do good, if not )better bread, gems. niuf- il tins, cakes and all the other standard results of laking than wheat, there is a market made .or it at once, and it is na cheaper than wheat flour. This is J what the Pe'oples' Independent l'irce an Mill, of Crowlyv, is now doing, it dit having installed the most modern machincry tor manufacturing rice exa flour, and its "Sunburst,, brand, that w" is now putting uo in attractive sacks thi of 12, 24 and 41 pounds, is the result AT of mouths of practical experiment T along the lime of making a perfect flour from rice. Already the sale of this new flour is assuming large pro- cr. porbions, especially in the South where j the people kno'w hol to use rice anti th the local grocers are having more in- D' creased demands for it from the fam!- th lies who have found out its merits. be To enable everybody to get the best el possible results from the use of Sun- S' burst" rice flour, the Peoples' In dependent Mill has had published a th booklet giving 28 of the very best YE recipes to use rice flour, and it will be CC sent to anyone asking for it. When P' rice flour comes into universal use, m" as it certainly will so soon as the B' people find out what an excellent sub stitute it is for wheat flour, then the hi problem of and overproduction will P be solved, for like the small boy with °' I the apple, "there aint going to be any a' surplus.

Devoe is the standard; call it 100 he The best of the rest is about 75; the worst about 25 ; the rest are between. SBut the men, who sell them, don't know any better. They know what the maker tells them. That is: they know that he tells them. They don' know whether he tells them the trute or not.

Parker, late Demo cratic candidate for president of the * United States, in a speech delivered at the .IeiTerson day banquet of the Democratic club of New York, under " the caption: "Why the South has been and is true, " paid the following eloquent tribute to the people of the S South: "Surprise is s-mietimes expressed that the South has remained solid, and yet no student, whatever his prejudices could overlook the fact that in politics there is a sense of gratitude, not for unselfish and commanding services of humanity. Indeed, nothing in all the recorded history of mankind has been more pathetic, more heroic, more deserving of admiration and sympathy, than the attitude of the south since 1865. As fate would have it, their defeat in war was the smallest of their woes be cause it could neither threaten nor bring dishonor. But the new contest -with partisan rancor, with military power, with theft and robbery, with poverty and robbery, with poverty and the enforced domination of a rate lately in slavery-forced as it was without time for recovery, and that, too, in their own homes, required a course little less than snper-human. f Maintaining the struggle with the 1 one great and almost insoluble prob - lem of our time, working under the i most serious difficulties, courageous - in fact of many diseouragements, these i people have hopes, the ideals and the traditions of their country and the logic as well as the heroism of our national history. If any man is so foolish as to ask why the democratic party has been true to the south, in its time of trial, and why this attachment has been requited, it must be because he knows little history a"4 less of human nature."' g A Raft of Coconatn. e A curious picture in the Far Eastern is Review. Manila, shows several cocoa . nut rafts in a still lagoon, apparently o ready to go to market. The cocoanuts are mulch lighter than water. They are simply thrown in by the thousand and then roped together by long strands of * bark fiber into circular groups about twenty feet across, all the cocoanuts lying side by side. A suingle native boat can tow a number qf these odd 11 rafts down a sluggish stream where no road could be found for ordinary trans- i it t a ste:umer wharf. Cocoanuts this Srafted will bear quite a bit of windl 's and rough water without being scat- p de tered. aDon't waste. at Let nettling he wasted or lost. Cs ing well or wasting the fragments of ur time, of opportunity, the nooks and cor ners of life, makes all the difference be is tween success and failure. This is espe ad cially true of spiritual work. Often the best results are gained from the use of 00 fragments of our business or daily life. the byproducts of living. Nature says. "Gather up the fragments." In na n ture's household there is no waste. t The decay of rocks forms the soil of bat pIlants.

S Reasons why Sunburst Rice Flour should be in every kitchen $ in the Rice Belt: Because it is 25 per cent cheaper than wheat dour. Because-it requires 50 per cent less Snnburst IHice Flour than it does wheat tilour. Because the more Sunburst Rice Flour you u·'e. the greater you increase the consumptit.n of rice. Because every dollar you spend for Sunburst 1 ie e Flour stays in the rice belt instead of go ing into the pockets of the wheat gruowrs: Because it is the duty of every person interested in rice to eat his own product and thereby increase its demand and help raise the e price. c ------ Sold In.
