will begin here next week and will be
in full blast by the end of the month.
) Several of the Crowley mills will be
) turning out rice by August 1, and it is
) possible thatisomeof them will start be
fore that time. The earliest date on
which any Crowley mill started up
last year was August 26.
The condition of the crop continues
) to be excellent, nothing having inter
p ferred to hurt the quantity or the
quality of the yield. Thus far there
have been no reports of serious rav
ages by rice pests, although at vari
ous times during the season worms
)1 ive appeared in restricted sections.
) Grass has not interferred with the
' crop to the extent that it has in some
former seasons. Old farmers say that
in respect of the trouble from insects
and from grass the crop has been less
) troubled than in ui v year since the
) banner crop year. 19 G.
From the river come reports of
first-class rice crolps in point of quali
ty as well as qu:iitity. The Teche
crop is unusually good this season
and some rice from that section has

eastern Vermillion. along the Hunter
canal, the acreage is about the same
as last iear, but if the weather re
mains favorable for a few weeks the
yield will be much greater. Around
) Gueydan the acreage is slightly in
) creased and present conditions are
entirely satisfactory to the farmers.
In Acadia there is no material change
in acreage, but the present condition
of the crop can fairly be said to be
)1better than in any year since 1903.
