Economy in Harvesting Rice.
(continued from page 2.)
fine rice crops as are raised in Louisi
ana--twenty sacks to the acre--and
tried practically the three usual ways
of cutting: first by the old rice hook,
second by the cradle and third by the
self binding harvester, with three mules
attatched, with the result of utter con
demnation for the first and a conviction
that the second, the cradle, is the im
plement best suited at present. It
leaves the grain in a long beautiful
evenly laid swath to the sun and when
the hands come on behind to bind it up
into bundles it is dried better than that
cut with a hook and the weeds and
grass at the buts are easily dropped
out by taking the rice up in the left
hand above the middle and simply shak
ing them out. This largely facilitates
curing quickly and evenly. A failure to
bind up the rice without the large
amount of weeds and grass at the buts
on our river lands, is the one greatest
objection to the rice harvester. Another
is the lands are heavy and the work
hard and tedious both for man and
beast. It is doubtful thus far if in these
lands rice growing is quite a success
It will thus be seen that there is a
tried, proven, practicable way of sow
ing the rice crop better, in less than
half the time and with less expens,.
This means that a puanter can often
harvest his crop in time to avoid rains
and bad weather and generally get it
out of the killing sun which renders it
over ripe, soft and chalky, so that it
will never mill or sell as first class
goods as it would have done if cut and
cured in the stiff dough state, just
ripe. -Upper Coast.
