Says the New Orleans Picayune: That Louisiana has the richest farmiini land in the entire southwest P, and soil far superior to that found in of any other part of the country, the Southern Pacific otficials are satisfied, of and since the tril) of inspection made di by h'. H. Griswold of the Chicago le Tribune, over their line from New vc Orleans nearly to the Texas border, co they are considerably strengthened in ir their opinion. ti Mr. Griswold came south to gather a data for a series of articles on the ag- p ricultural possibilities of Louisiana. particularly as regards rice and truck farming, and he was taken, over the P Southern Pacific line in the state, in a special car, by J. H. R. Parsons, general passenger agent, Joseph La- r lande, assistant general freight agent. t, At Lafayette they were joined by G. , S. Scarlette, assistant superintendent. , The party went as far as the sulphur s mines and Mr. Griswold said that he o was greatly impressed with what he g saw of the state's wonderful resources. He thought that the only thing needed to exploit the land and obtain for it r desirable purchasers, was the proper c advertising in the north and west. r Mr. Griswold had seen land in the west not to be compared with the Louisiana land, to which settlers were flocking and he saw no reason why this state should not become one of the wealthiest in the country.- L. C. American Press. Perry Refuses to Submit Proofs. Commanaer Perry refuses to submit i I proofs that he reached the north pole. I This is the word that has gone out from Washington. In a note sent to the chairman of the House commit. tee on naval affairs, Mr. Perry makes the statement that to make public his ) records and scientific data now, would be a violation of his contract with his publishers and submit him to a heavy penalty, which he does not feel able to stand at the present time. Not only this, but it would be breaking faith with his publishers, which he will not do. This note was sent in answer to a request for definite proof of his hav ing reached the pole, before congress would confer contemplated honors up on him. The committee who have the matter 'in charge are divided upon the matter, Messrs. Moore and Hob son urging the conferring of honors without further quibbling over proofs, while Representative Macon is just as - determined in his views that no re wards should be granted before the )r proofs Were forthcoming. s A splended line of La dies' Hats, latest styles Sand shapes, at our Great v.

This is a" case that has arouSed a great deal of 0 interest throughout the parish, and " the verdict rendered will meet the approval of a large portion of the people of the parish. Prominent Rice Planter Will Try Rain- e lung High Land ('reps This Year. Walter Longman, who has farmed rice in Calcasieu parish for the past twenty years, and who, in connection with his brother, is putting in a large " rice crop on the Keystone plant this season, was a pleasant caller at this office Monday. Mr. Longman has " great faith in the possibilities of di versified farming in this country, land in order to work out some of his theo- " ries. he has moved onto the place re cently vacated by Rev. E. H. Rees, 1 north of town, where he intends to " put out a large acreage of high land crops. He says, as well as raising Irish and sweet potatoes and other truck, he intends to plant a variety of feed and forage plants, including bar ley, German Millet, Egyptian wheat, sorghum, corn and a patch of broom corn. More planters of this sort, who g will attempt something besides rice will be a material aid in developing the latent possibilities of this country, a and making it what, by rights, it should be, the garden spot of the earth.
