The increased acreage (faring the pasr/ season is about it" pear cent., and the product has in«<eased more ,than one-half. In the aeason of 1802-03, the product was 450,000,000 pounds; during the present sc»- ; son it is 1,700,000,000 pounds. | But this increased production was ' I.OAJJI.VG CANK CAltTS. aminly stimulated by tin; bounty, of which wu road so much. Sugar raising is tho chief industry of lidiiisiana. The sugar district comprises the lower portion of tho state, irom Alexandria to the Balige. These Panels are best adapted to sugar growing, and nothing else is planted on-lliem, except orchards and gardens. 'Hie- sugar interest largely outweighs VAe cotton and corn interests, hence ^Louisiana is, strictly speaking, a sugar «tato: Within tlic past several years tho government has paid about ¥-10,000,000 bounty to the producers, and this reason- tlie six hundred sugar planters •ia the state will average a total claim <o( about $1!!,000,000 bounty. The visitor to New Orleans who sees thousands nf hogsheads of sugar in the Jong-sheds on the levee has .little idea •of the picluresqiU'Tiess of this industry. : Tlie crop is "sown" by "digging" it out •of-tlic! ground. \Vhon the crop lias been gat'iercd e.'irly in the fall, before the 'biting frost has nipped it, the cane is j liewn down just above the ground, and j sovorVi'l over with a gang plow so that ;h(' ivi:•:.•: will ki'rp until spring. th!.; • ;i-ni;i] (.'lunate-, iiuci'ssai-y to ,1 .v!;;-.':".'-:im' growing, tin; sca- : :is i !'.• in March.

The process for e•::.'•.:•.:;i;:rr i:::.-.? frr.v.i t'.'.c c:ino was sornuthiag like a cider press. fed by a boy. with a mule for the motive power, while a.:strong man with a club regulated the poor mule. The first neat improvement was by an octoroon from the West Indies, who was promptly swindled out of his invention. Is'ow there arc large and powerful crushers, so heavy that very little of the juice of the cane is left after it has gone through the squeezing process. Wagon loads of : cane arc driven to a platform, from ' which a dummy runs to the crusher. The cane is thrown upon the dummy, which is shot through to these large iron crushers, having a pressure of from sixty to seventy pounds to the .. square inch. From seventy to eighty- five or ninety per cent, of the weight of ; the cane, or rather the juice, is cxtract- ' cd, de-pendent mainly upon the efficien- j cy of the crushers. This gives from ; one hundred and fifty to one hundred j and seventy pounds, or nearly half a [ barrel of sugar from one ton of cane. When the canes come out of the crusher they arc literally chewed into fragments. In some instances the cane passes through two or three crushers. What remains of the cane is called 'bayiim or refuse, which is fed to the furnace, by the scores of negro children who are glad to work in the mill, so as to get llii-ir fill of sugar und molasses. The juice of the cune is received in rubber aprons, and lli'unue carried to a mill, thence through a, trough to a strainer where negro women fish out the c.'nno shreds. These: shreds are again put through thu mill. The juice is now pumped into an iron cylinder, which has been heated to about 100 degrees. It is then run into clarifying vals, and al-1 impurities are brought to the surface by adding slacked quicklime. The impurities are skimmed oil and the juice is again heated by means of long pipes through the vats. Then comes a novel spectacle; the women with long paddlos whip the heated fluid until the surface is covered with ripples bubblesand white-cupped waves. This makes the juice form into grains. After the whipping, the juice is allowed to "settle" for about an hour, when it is run off into a large iron tank, into which there is an clement of animal bone-black, which gives it "local coloring." It takes several daj'.s for tho juico to (iltcrthrough into a large oval boiler, where it is boiled in a vacuum by exhaust steam. After this it goes through mother filtering; and boiling process, at .i temperature of 130. At this stage granulating begins, and with the boiling the little grains of sugar become largo and larger, like Iropsof rain in an approaching storm. iiuilly air is admitted, and tho grain.-; ire run into a receiver in which is a v:re-screen basket, making about 1,000 revolutions a minute. This action throws the molasses against the screen, leaving the sugar; and when the screen TELLS GOOD STOEIES. The Cause of Congressman Allen'a Great Popularity. henever He Opec» His Hloath XI u Col' leagues Expect to Hu&r Something Pat—ill* Idea of Late Financial LegbriKUon. (.Special Washington Lctter.l Congressman John Allen, of the First Mississippi district, is regarded as one of the brightest, wittiest and most entertaining orators in the house of representatives. Whenever he is accorded the floor he has a large audience in the galleries, and the members always congregate about his seat and pay tho closest attention to his remarks. This is not only because Mr. Allen is an able and fluent talker, but because everyone who ever heard him knows his uncommon power of illustration. He holds tho attention of his auditors, and they have learned to expect a good anecdote from him whenever he speaks. And they usually hear at least one.

The molasses is boiled over, clarified, and shipped to market. A second grade of sugar is made from this molasses, also a third grade, j counter, said; which is mainly sold to colored people—just as several grades of wine are made from the same grapes. Sugar cane was first introduced in Louisiana in 1751. Two ships, dispatched with troops from France, stopped at Llispanola. Some Jesuits put aboard a lot of sugar canes, with a number of natives familiar with sugar culture, consigned to brother Jesuits at New Orleans. The canes were planted at a spot near where the old St. Charles hotel recently stood, but they did not "come up." A few years later a second consignment was sent, and cane-fields covered what is cow known as tho American quarter of New OH.-ns. Dubrcnil, the richest planter ia the territory, built a mill, but they did not understand tho science of making tho molasses granulate, and for more than half a century the «anes were! sold as a species of sugar in the public markets, and eaten as candy. J- M. SCAJTLASD. Mr, Allen has a la.rffc stock of fresh stories on hand and he always takes great pleasure in entertaining hislistcn- urs by telling them. While they are convulsed with laughter, his face is as calm and serene as the countenance of a philosopher or professor of theology. While the house, during its last session, had under consideration what was known as the seigniorage bill, Mr, Allen spoke in favor of thiit'measure, but digressed to make a few remarks concerning a speech which Abraham S. Hewitt, of" New York, had delivered at a "banquet, in thu course of which Mr. Hewitt had severely criticised tho people of the sou Hi. Mr. Allen said: "I do not think that any man ought to be held down to a very rigid account for an after-dinner speech at a banquet. Why, sir, 1 recollect not long ago I \vunt to a banquet in Baltimore where everything was so good, where I was surrounded by so many big rich roen ( that by the time my turn came to speak L felt so well that J addressed them as 'fellow capit.ali.sts.' " This bright saying elicited applause and laughter, wliiuli continued for some little time. Mr. Allen then n.:fi:rrcd to a speech which had bcun irsadc! in Baltimore by Congressman 1'at.torson, o1 Tennessee, in reply to ex-Jlayor Hewitt, in which Col. Pattev.sna had made I n, number of very intemperate and heated assertions. Mr. Allen, referring to the Puttersori-Howitt speech, said: "Being aware of the influence surrounding a banquet, if I did not know of the abstemious habits of my friend from Tennessee. I would have thought on reading bis speech that he had gotten somewhat under the influences that affected another Tennes- sccan that a traveling man told me about meeting', once in Tennessee. This traveling man was sitting on a counter talking to a merchant about selling him goods; he and the mcrchact got into a general conversation, and among other things he said to the merchant: 'I used to soil these goods down in Kaufmari county, Tex.' "At this, a seedy, ragged, hard-looking fellow who was sitting on the same 'My friend, did you say lie necitls anything, just to draw on me-' "Xovr under the influence of one of these Jsew York banquets, with all lhat they have crood to cut and the = 1 "- companimcnts, one feels by the time the sneaking begins like telling the rest of the world to draw on him. Therefore, I, on my own motion, would never quote a banquet spccch'on anybody bo- cause I do not think it is e.xactty the fair thing." Another good story is told by the witty Mississippi statesman. He was elected to the Fiftieth congress by a slim majority over his opponent, and it was with much difficulty that he captured the election and maintained his seat in the house. During the first session of the Fiftieth congress Mr, Allen concluded that he would spend the Christmas holidays at Tupelo. Several days after he had been i home while walking about the house he sprained his ankle. One day when he was hobbling about the streets of the town helping himself along with the aid of a cane he was met by an old maid, a friend of the faniily, who seemed very anxious about his welfare and inquired of him why he was limping about in that way. : "Oh!" replied Allen, "I got lame running for congress at the last election." j During the extra session of the recent congress which was called by President Cleveland for the purpose of repealing the Sherman silver purchasing act, Congressman Allen made a strong speech on the monetary question. In conclu- ; sion he said that the condition of the j country under existing legislation and • the proposed bill reminded him of the Story told of the farmer who went away for a visit and took his family with him to sue his relatives in the city. "The affairs of the farm," said he, "were left in the hand of their trusty overseer, . Uncle Ebeu, who was charged partic- , ularly by the farmer on his departure ; *' that Uncle Ebon must let ' ! ~ ' ' "' often as to how things were goin Daily letters were sent telling how prosperous the crops were and one day Uncle Eben wrote as follows; 'Everything is all fine as usual. The horse, Frank, has been sick with tho glanders, I gave him the medicine as directed-and he is uow well of the disease, but he is dying of the remedy.'." Mr. Allen said that that was the precise condition in which the country was lingering. It had recovered from the results of the operation of the Sherman but was suffering from the remedy which was being given by the legislators in the house. At n, banquet of the Gridiron club one evening speaking-to the toast "Our ?lag." Mr, Allen said: "When I was a 3OV our flag was different from the flag under which I now loyally live. It was confederate flag, and I was a young SCIENCE AND INDUSTRY. —The natural antagonism of microbes of various species toward each other has latoly received a fresh illustration.

Brazilian diamonds are so much smaller than the African that it does not pay to mine them against African competition. j —A protest against the denudation of forests in order to secure material for railroad ties is made in a report issued by the agricultural department at Washington on the use of metal rail- . road ties and preservative processes and | metal tie plates for wooden ties.

Sho was of a somewhat haughty nature, and, being on a shopping expedition with a friend, happened to catch a flimpse of an acquaintance she did not wish to recognize. 'Let us go this way past the silk counter. I just saw some one I don't care to roii«t" 'Who is she?" asked her friend, who did not see anyone near them. 'Oh, some horrid woman with a smirk on her face. Of course I have only a bowing acquaintance with her, and although her face is so familiar I cannot remember her name." They finished their shopping, and the two ladies found themselves at the same point where one of them had seen her disagreeable acquaintance. "There she is again. Why, I do believe she's been there all the time," she said, pointing to the person in question. you had lived in Kaufman county, Tex?" "'Yes, sir.' " 'Did you ever know a man out there by the name of John F. Williams?' " 'Oh, yes; I used to sell John goods. 1 " 'Well, sir, he is my brother,' i "'Ah! I am glad to meet you. 1 " 'Yes, sir, John Williams is my ' brother. How was John when you saw ! him?' : " 'Oh, John was doing very well. Ho had a good farm, with plenty of stock on it; he was out of debt and doing well.' " 'Well, my friend, if you should be back in Kaufman county at any time, and see anything of John, I wish you would tell him that I am mighty hard up, that my farm is mortgaged, and I do not believe that I am ever going to be able to raise and educate my children. Times are mighty hard with nio, and I do not see any chance to get out of debt; and if he is ever going to help me, now is the time.' "After awhile this traveling man felt like taking a drink, aud he invited John's brother out to take a drink with him. When the drink began to have its effect, tho man said: 'So you know my brother. John out in Texas? Well, when you go out there, say that I am getting along tolerably well, that I ai^'t makiug any great money, bnt I am doing pretty well.' "They sauntered around awhile, and the traveling man asked his acquaintance to take another drink. Then tho fellow began to warm up. He said: 'So vou know my brother John out in Kaufman county, Tex. Well, if you are out there at any time, just tell him that I am making a good living and am getting along first rate.' "Late in the evening my friend met the fellow again; he had meanwhile had two or three more drinlcs and was pretty mellow, so he said: 'You are the gentleman that knowed my brother John out in Kaufman county.

The building has two wings, ! one devoted to the manufacture of bristol board, the other to lithography. In the former thirty^ive out of fifty hands have been seriously ill with influenza; in the latter not a single operative has had even a cold. A similar state of things has been noticed in seven other factories near by. M. Xaquct, who communicates the facts to the Paris academic de mcdccine, thinks that the immunity is due to the vapors of spirits of turpentine, of which a quantity is used with each lithographic machine. —Every bee has two kinds of eyes; the two large, compound ones, looking like hemispheres on either side, and the three simple or single eyes, which crown the head.

Some years ago the dis- ! covery was made that the root of BUNNIXQ FOR cox6i?nss.

The fact soon be came evident that the supply of canaigre was nearly exhausted. The plan of cultivating the plant was then taken up by the farmers of that section. This crop has proved a success, and now we hear that many farmers arc planting from 1,000 to 3,200 acres of canaigre. In the Pccos valley a factory for making a tanning extract from the root is being erected. The yield is from 10 to 35 tons to tho acre, and this roots bring the farmers confederate soldier.
