Acetylene (gas Rendered Harmless 61 Throngh the Use of Sugar. One of the greatest difticulties that has thus far been contended with for the general introduction of acetylene gas for domestic illuminating purpos. es, is the great danger of explosion. One may argue from whatever stand point he wish, yet there are too many examples of accidents due to this cause. To be able to manufacture as product that would overcome the diffi- a culty would certainly be a great ser- f( vice rendered to the community. Our w attention has been called to an inven- d' tion that promises to be a success. Carbide of calcium has considerable avidity for sugar and in its presence D it becomes harmless. P The chemical under consideration a need only be sprinkled with sugar and V' then decomposed by water, either in a w special apparatus or in an acetylene e' lamp. Instead of there being a sudden a rise of temperature, which always oc- w curs when the gas is liberated, through u the small addition of sugar the chemi cal transformations are comparatively a slow and the gas is regularly thrown it off, a very slight rise of temperature fI leaving a residum of carbon. c We are informed that this idea is n entirely different from a certain pro. duct, sold under the name of acetylene e which is a carbide covered with glu- d cose. It is to be noted that glucose tl does not bring about the same chemi- e cal changes as is produced by sucrose. n The cost of sugar Is very slight, it d being only one cent per kilo of car bide. Recent experiments tend to demonstrate that the explosions with I acetyline are almost always due to the . sudden rise of temperature when water a is added. The fact that these abrupt b changes do oceur when sugar is sprinkled over the sarface of the cart bide is within itself a proof that the [ method has an important practical ; value.-The Sugar Beet.

SLouisiana Irrigation and Mill Company a Crowley, Louisiana, RICE LANDS IN GOOD DEMAND Rice Easily Sold at Good Prices Welsh One ot the Best Rice Towns in the Rice Belt. With rice bringing a good price and the market for same steadily ad. vancing, it is but natural that people from other sections of the country, turn toward Southwest Louisiana and commence to buy rice lands and they are justified in so doing, for the lands in this section, which are the most favorably situated for the raising of rice, are being rapidly bought up and in a few years they will be worth double what they are bringing at the present time. The rice farmers in this vicinity have enjoyed good threshing weather for the past two weeks and have made the most of their opportunities. Rice is finding its way into the local mark ets in a steady stream and the farmer is wearing a smile that won'tcome off. Last year it was almost impossible to get buyers to bid on the rice and the local warehouses were filled from the floor to the roof, but this season there has been a large number of buy ers in this vicinity, and the rice that entered the warehouses for storage, has seldom remained more than a week or ten days and much of it is be ing purchased under sealed bids and in many instances the bids haveshown a diderence of from 30 to 60 centf per barrel. The- yield is not up to expectatl os. Many of the farmers find that they will haoe fully one-half of their sedts to carry over, and we have not heard of any o the usual stories in regard to enormous averages. The yield is generally sonceeded to run from 8 to 12 sacks psr acre. There seems to be little doubt'but that the present prices. will continue to advance until the close of the seasca. Since start.mg up for the season's run, the GulftRice Mill has been run ning steadily-and expects to do as well as last year in the nuibber, of sacks milled. The Jennings-Rice Mill is now run ning until 10:00 o'clock p. m. and the prospects for their coming up to last season's record.is equally good. All this goes to sbo~ that Welsh is not only holding herown as - one of the best rice towns of the entire rice see tion, but is settirnC a :pace that will prove hard for many of the large towns to equal.
