SATURDAY, DECEMBER 5 1914. The Fishing Industries of Plaque mines Parish. PLAQUEMINE8 Parish, projecting as it does far out into the Gulf, forming large, shallow bays on each side of its peninsular with the ad jacent waters graduated all the way from the freshness of the river to the salinity of the ocean itself, gives to our fishing industry a field bf operations surpassed by none other in the world. Our oyster industry, which has been the chief industry of this kind thus far, has pro gressed very considerably, but has not even yet done as much ~ we had hoped. The men en gaged in the oyster industry generally are a very excellent, earnest and hardy set of sailor men and form many of our best citizens. We are led to believe, however, that the industry Scould be greatly enlarged, even to double or triple its present dimensions with resulting :profits to all concerned. The fresh fish industry has not thus far had :much consideration in our parish, although the fishing fields are equally great as the oyster re sources. When we remember that the enter ;prising people of Louisiana have for many years been catching the great catfish in the Atcha .falaya River and the adjacent lakes rnd, as ,commonly said, sell the fish to be utilized as imitation salmon, and when, if we listen to the -tales about the New Orleans restaurants the or *dinary tenderloin trout served therein, before -being dressed and cooked are identical with the smaller catfish, we can see, or imagine, what has been done along these open lines. For nearly a thousand miles along the At lantic coast immense quantities of fish are caught and used for fertilizing and, without personal kno edge on our part based upon which to exprs an opinion, we are led by the views of others to believe that our shallow wat ers and fish feeding grounds could be made equally resourceful for the same purposes if our people-would engage in the industry. Still another branch of the fishing industry ias thui fat escaped attenqpn. All kinds "Qf Oeýr elD5ýe :atý~.otBrefully'preserved in ! eoirt . either as ajtt fsih or as smoked'fish t we, with equal resources so far asquan it Is concerned and, we are told, so far as q.0ity is concerned, have similarly good fish in limnmebnse quantities. Mullet fishing is said to lie .capable of immense development, producing s-: alt P ii as available as are salt maekerel. i /.We suppose that after a time, with a larger i!amigration into our country, we shall find n t people from the Mediterranean states and a rom the north of Europe who will be glad to 8'A$LI Afthese fishing privileges in Louisiana and paricularly in our own parish, to which we:now eich limitetd consideration. : sa Weare led to these reflections by noting that britgate of Massach~usetts has just built in is ;os, at a cost of over three millions of dol the largest pier in the world devoted to -.r~ The pier is 1200 feet long and 300 s Ide ii s the latest great addition to the u r . f Boston and is the only pier of its kind ii he world. The fishing busihess in Europe is the people there having learned long Sthe wealtli of the adjacent seas and have avTailltg of them for many centuries. With 4rWaty in Umope this vew Bioston fish pier has ?" retests~B hing mart in the universe shb consumed all over the United anded there. Overa hundred mu of fresh fsh are brought into Bose. a feet of over 500 vessels.

Hopper cars run along over the roof and deliver ice to the fish storage bins. These data show what is doing elsewhere and what csn be done in our parish if we avail of the natural resources that we have and these thoughts are given for our fishermen of Plaque mines Parish to consider and there are very many able men engaged in the industry who we are quite sure could develop our fishing indust ries to equal proportions, barring perhaps the warmer climate, which would necessitate very great care in the maintenance of low tempera tures in the fish bins. All this, however, could be cared for in these days of cheap manufac ture and we shall hope that within a few years great developments in our home fishing indus tries will occur along the lines hereinabove in dicated, which make no reference whatever to oysters, for which the Bostonians seem to have to go further south. Spanish and Australian Oranges. THE information reachingthe 'Department of Commerce indicates that Spain and Australia are seeking an outlet for -their large orange crops in the United States. A dispatch recent ly received from Sydney, Australia, by the Bu reau of Foreigh and Domestic Commerce, said: '"The Commissioner of Irrigation says al though the area of deciduous fruit planted in the Yanco district of New 3outh Wales during the present season has been large, there is every indication that in proportion the area put down to citrus will be even larger. "Growers on the area are looking for the de velopment of a large oversea market for citrus fruits, particularly in the Eastern States of America, after the Panama Canal has been made available for shipping. In this belief they are supported by the opinion of leading experts, such as Elwood Mead, who considers that citrus fruits placed in the Eastern States of America could be placed on the New York and Boston markets just in the,heighth of their summer season, when there is a scarcity of American produced citrus fruits. The varieties most fa vored by settlers seem to be Washington navels and late Valencias. Considerable quantities of other varieties, particularly Mediterranean sweet and Joppa, also are being planted." Consul Dawson, of Valencia, Spain, has ad vised the Department as follows: "Among the many proposals advocated in mass meetings throughout this district for al leviating the severe crisis threatening the re gion's prosperity as a result of the European war was one to seek new foriegn markets for oranges, the largest and most valuable crop. "To this end the government was petitioned to finance a commission to go at once to the .United.States to study general conditions and -prospects for placing . there important quanti ties of this year's oranges. "This request received the prompt attention of the government, as'shown by the royal order issued on September 24 acereding thereto, by virtue of which a committee of three practical orange men from the orange district has, been appointed and'will sail from Cadiz, Spain, for New York. Their immediate objective points are New York and Boston, but they are pre pared to extend the itinerary to other import ant centers if conditions warrant." According to the specialists of the Depart. ment.of Agrioulture people even in states quar aptined for the foot-and-mouth disease need have~no*ar o. asting meat, provided they cook ,it tho~oghly, The foot-and-month disease is not easily communieated to human beings through food, although amlk from a diseased cow might ,transmit the disease toa human be ing. In the ease of nmil, however,' pasteuriza. tiop will render itentirely safe. Human beings who do get the disease commonly get ;it from direet contaict with a sick ainmaL. It is wisest therefore, for people to keep tway from all animals having the disease unless they are prop. ily provided with rubber gloves, coats and boots, end these are thoroughly disinfected af ter each visit to the animals. In the ease of meat, as in the ease of milk, itmust be remembered that all 'herds which ac tually show the disease are quarantined, and neither milk nor meat from the sickanimalscan be sold. Sixty per cent of the meat usieid :in this country is produced in the nearly 900 fed erally inspected slaughtering and pakinlg es tablishments located in 240 eities. In these es tablishments no animal is slaughtered until it 'has passed an ante-mortem inspection and also a mosit rigid post-mortem inspection by a vet erinarian at time of slaughter. After slaugh ter its meat cannot leave the establishment un til it has been carefully examined and stamped "U. S. Inspected and Passed." In all these es tabllshments he animal showing any -symptoms whatever of fodt and mmonth disease is allowed to go to slaughter, and no meat whieh, on olt mortem inspection, shows any suspicious sy.h ptoms of this complaint can be shipped out of the estabUshment. All mtot suspected of com ing from an animal suftering with tis corm plaint Is sent under :government seal, to the tsgkito be rendred jinofert lizer. The fed eta intspection sttamponmeatthertorer , meani ,that it is entirely safe ...

The disease when contracted by adults is not at all a serious illness. It commonly takes the form of slight fever sores in the mouth and a slight eruption on the fingers. In the case of small or sickly children it may take a more serious form, especially if complicated by other illnesses. Shipments of oranges and oth er California fruit will be delayed from two weeks to a month long er than has been the case in the past by a ruling just made in re gard to the amount of sweetness the fruit must attain on the tree. To prevent the interstate ship ment of immature citrous fruit which has been colored by sweat ing or exposure in warm, moist air to an extent that will conceal its inferiority, the Department of Agriculture has issued an an nouncement defining the mini mum of sweetness that oranges Imust attain on the tree, if later sweating is not to be held to conceal inferiority. In the past much immature fruit colored by sweating has been shipped. The law prohibits the coloring of any food product jso as to conceal inferiority, and shipments of fruit so colored have always been prohibited. The announcement is as follows: "The Bureau of Chemistry has received requests to define the terms immature and maturity as used in food inspection decision 133, relating to the coloring of green citrous fruits. "As a result of the investiga tion carried out during the sea son of 1913 and 1914, the Bureau of Chemistry considers Califor nia oranges to be immature if the juice does not contain soluble solids equal to, or in excess of eight parts to every part of acid contained in the juice, the acid ity of the juice to be calculated las citric acid without water or crystallization. Owing to the fact that opportunity has been given to study the composition of California oranges during one season only, the ratio set at this time is lower tha ..that which is, believed to be the minimum for properly matured fruit. It mayl therefore, be expected that the' requirements will be made more strict after data from several crops are available. - Notice for a 'Barroom and Retail Liquor Business Permit.
