A special from li-tton I houge says: tuit has been tiled in the Twenty-sec ond district court. e!,rfre Judge Fay rot, by the Morgan': Louisiana and Texas Railroad and Stea:tshilp C(ol pany et al against the Ilailroad Com mission of Louisiana, to prevent the railroad conunission from making permanent its rates recently authoriz edon rice shipment froim I)ints on the road into New Orleans. The declaration, tiled by T. J. Ker nan, of this city, and 1)enegre & Blair, of New Orleans. attorneys for the road, sets out at length eight reasons why the p)ropo)(sed rates on rice promulgated at. the July meeting of the commission, to take eflect Aug. 1, should not be allowed by the courts. First-The radical changes proposed are not justified by the conditions, that the existing rates are fair a d reason able to shippers, permit a free move dnt of the traffic and are not dis eriminating in favor of any locality. Ih Evidence they say the traffic has grown from a mere trilie to 200,t100, , 00 pounds per year. Second-The rates are lower than those fixed by the Commission on other roads. Third-NSo complaint was made on tales on clean rice, yet reduction on elean rice is greater than that on rough. Fourth-Tariff makes no allowance for unfavorable situation of the rail toad company in having to, deliver to .NewOrleans by ferry boat. Fifth-Tariff violates the funda mental principle of rate making, in that it prescribes the same rate on .rafnches as on the main line. :Sixthl-The tariff imposes on the road an-annual loss of its revnue. Seventh-Rates are unreasonable iathat they discriminate in favor of trey other commodity. Eighth-Rates are unreasonable, hecause they would not allow the road ltough reynue to pay the cost of vement of rice. The Globe Warehouse . has just received one load of Texas Oats.

NEW VARIETY OF RICE. Gueydan MIan Effect, Cross Between HIonduras and Japan. S. S. Singleton, who has been ex perimenting for the past two seasons on a new variety of rice, is confident that he has succeeded in p)ropagating a grain that will sort of revolutionize the industry. The variety isa seeming cross between Japan and Hoduras. with all the excellent qualities of weight and appearance which mark the latter, and possessing the quick growth of the former, in fact it will mature fully three weeks hefore the earliest varieties of Japan. The grain is perfect in form and of good size and it looks as though it would harden out to a perfect head. Mr. Singleton discovered the variety by ac(ideunt last year and this season planted all the seed he could save, and will make a mill test of it. If it shows clean result as promising as it appears in the rough he will plant a large acreage next year and keep it for all future seeding until he has enough to market.-Gueydan News.

Journal, New I)rleans ilarleynin, contains a splendlidly virile and to-the-point con tr'ilition on the imosquito and hIr dis seminatiug inlluence in yellow fever epidetmics. The article teems with sense. incon tro'ertiile facts and pertinent sui - gestions. It. is published by courtesy of New Orleans Harlequin. P'rof. 1lever's most timely, truthful and all-convin'inig testtmnyo as to the fact--fully demonstrated that the mos, luito--the kind that IatuCres from the "wiggle-tails" in your 'iste.rus and miner- is the only iagency by which yellow fever can be transmit ted. follows and should he read by every reader of this palper. HIARI:QUIN: In answer to your question: These are the experiments which have lead to the conclusion that a certain, one kind of mosquito, is the only transmitting agency of yellow fever. In what I say here I speak on the authority of my own personally con ducted experiments. I know of my own knowledge the facts I state. The experiments were made during two consecutive years i an an original home of yellow fever-Vera Crux. Men were brought from places where no yellow fever ever existed. They had been examined and found to be free from any and all ailments. They were then taken to Vera Cruz un1der absolute and compllete lpriOc'au tions against the mosquito. They were placed in rooms in which no mosquitoes could have lived or were living then. After two weeks of continual ex amination, and absolute ex,'luion, of the mosquito, no sickness of any kind had developed in the men. Two mosquitoes, of the fever-transmitting kind which had been allowed to feed on a fatal case of yellow fever and which had been kept from that time on. for from twelve to sixteen days. in a wire-screened cage, were perml't ted to sting the men kept under obser vation. These men were stricken three days and one hour after the mosquito bites, with typical yellow fever. The prevention of fatality of the desease in these instances was due to timely intervention and extraordi nary care. Over two summers I extended these experiments and observations. There was absolutly no variation from the fact that this striped-legged and blue winged mosquito, which willI he known to'the world in time as the "yellow fever mosquito," and which is now scientifically known as, "steg. omyia fasciata," transmits yellow fever. Now. After I had developed yel low fever in two non-immunes with the mosquitoes in the manner just de scribed. I kept these yellow fever suf ferers in the same protected room with six other men who never had yellow fever and who therefore must have been susceptible to it. And after three weeks not one of them developed Sthe disease. These experiments, too, were repeated variedly so that by no'i possibilty could the outcome have been chance or the disease due to any other source of infection than the mosquito. Also. All mosq(luitoes I used for expirimentation were reared and hbred from eggs and young larvae or wig gle-tails in class jars in, the labora tory. Thefreshly hatched mosquitoes were consequently free ifrom thb dis. ease for mos(lquitoes, thus reared, were continually fed, in order to keep them alive, on my non-immune sub jects. No subjeet bitten by tho freshly hatched mosquitoes ever became sick. A freshly hatched mosquito of that kind fedt on a known and undoublted case of yellow fever during the third and fourth days produced the disease in the same men in whom he had failed to produlce it fourteen days before- that is, before having been fed on the yellow fever sufferer. Other varieties of mosquitoes (eigh teen species) which prevailed at the time at Vera Cruz were reared and experimented with in the same man ner as just described for the yellow fevei' mosquito without a single case producing the fever. Another experiment was made to see whether the disease could be pro Sduced by the introduction of the causative agent into a non-immune outside of the acual sting of the "yel low fever mosquito." Infected mos quitoes of from sixteen to nineteen ddais' infection, mosquito which had produced the disease by their sting, «(ut into onl(. fl, t ,e ca,,es, t mand y In ill that clUe n it bites tlthat if two s of ,ve t el, v llolhw fever.

If the o elru v e b IIc lkept I alIon2side of the infected one: if the two sets of men breathe the satme air; it tlhey intel'hange food and water: if they touicih each oth(ers' hands, not one single itiant in the cage kept free from the mnosqii toes will catch the disase. That has been so conclusively pove en that no sensible man can acluaint himself with the fact of Vthe most care- I fully contlcted experiments. and re main in the slightest doubt as to the reason of yellow fever's spread. If six hdozn acute cases of yellow fever were taken into this city--into its dirties slums--and each carefully kept under screens so that our striped legged yellow fever mosquitoes could not get at them, there would be no more danger of a spread in the disease here, of the development of a single additional case, than if the six dozen sufferers were in the wilds of Africa. The great problem heltore us is, "flow is yellow fever transmitted? ''The great problem is to make the people, the popullace. understand and believe and know one single fact that the "yellow-fever mosqluitos"' presence has been, is and will be (as long as we permit it) the destruction and menace (of man. It took, over a hundred years for the people. the populace, to under stand, to believe, to know that vac line is a scientifict realty-and it took over a half century before the dread of small pox was wiped away by it. Let us hope that in this day of the printing press and the utilization of the ligntning. it will not take as long for-man to seize upon the potent reali ty otf a vastly important fact. This yellow-fever mosquito does the bus iness, Sir TlArlueLN and fellow citizens. Of that there is not now a vestige of doubt. It and it alone does it. GEORGE E. BEYERt.

He was the pio neeer in mosquito inoculations. From 1881 to 1900, Dr. Finlay, as sisted by Dr, Claudio Delgado, per formed over one hundred inoculations with supposed infected yellow fever mosquites. "The following facts, in connection with yellow fever, are now very gen erally admitted: "1. The only natural method that is known by wllich yellow fever is transmitted from sick to healthy per sons is by the bite of mosquitoes pre viously infected by biting a sick per son in the first three days of an at tack of yellow fever.
