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
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.

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.

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
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
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

were repeated variedly so that by no'i

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

causative agent into a non-immune

six hdozn acute cases of yellow fever

"'Dr. Cha!Tes P. Finlay, at the ses

1i, 1881, fivst gave the world his event
t:ful theory of the transmission of yel
low fever by the medium- of the mos
quito, re porting, at that time, a series
of experiments he had made on human
i)eings, by which he claimed to have
proved his theory. 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
"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.
"2. On the fourth day of the dis

virus of yellow fever, even when the
fever is high.
