State Superintendent of Education J
B. Aswell to Itemain i o in Louisiana.
All parties interested in the well
fare of the cause of education, will be
rejoiced to learn that State Superin
tendent J. lB. Aswell, has decided to
remain at the head of the department
of education in Louisiana, rather than
take the chancellorship of the Univers
ity of Mississi)pi. Mr. Aswell says
in this connection:
"1 accepted the chancellorship of
the Univeasitv of Mississippi in per
fectly good faith as a distinct honor
conferred, and began at once to make
my plans accordingly, but within the
past few weeks the State Press Asso
clation, the Congress of Mothers, the
State School Board Association, par
ish school boards, parish teachers' as
sociations, boards of trade, business
men, school officials, teachers and oth
er citizens have so earnestly appealed
to me, that I am convinced now that
it is my duty to remain with the peo
ple of my native state. At this time
it is not a question of money, nor is it
a question of personal consideration.
With me it is the plain question of du
ty to the people who have honored
and trusted me, and to whom I am
profoundly grateful for their express
ions of confidence and good will."
Mr. Aswell has done more than any
other man for the advancement of the.
cause of education in Louisiana and
his departure from the state would
mean a direct loss to the cause, for,
even though a otloer man of equal
abilities was secured, it would require
time for him to familiarize himself
with the educational conditions of the
state sufficiently to enable him to oon
duct the department with the lefficiency
of the present incumbent.
Big Advance In Price of Rice,
The price of rough rice has been go
ing up by leaps and bounds during
the last ten days, until now good Hon
duras is worth from $3 50 to $3.75,
while Japan of a similar grade rang
esfrom $3.'7 to $4.25 One of our
millers offered $4.25 for 2,000 sacks of
Japan, to be delivered at the mill, a
few days ago, but could not get it ev
en at that. This unusual activity at
this time of the year, is thought to be
due to the limited amount of last
year's crop now on hand, which will
he consumed by the first of July and
at least two or three weeks before any
of the new crop is on the market. The'
prospects of a short crop this year is
also exerting its influence on the mark
et. Conservative rice men believe
that new rice will find ready sale at
