This item is small, when cane is transported by rail, but is quite large when carts are used. Duringapartof therolling season the mules at Magnolia are employed in plowing. Their work being comparatively light, they require less food than if carting cane over rough roads. Mr. Dustman estimates this saving at 10 pounds of oats and corn per head per day. In Louisiana, where the cane must be harvested as rapidly as possible, economy of time is of great importance. It is estimated that the loss of time with carts in rainy weather is four times greater than with the railway. Carting in wet weather necessitates a large force of men to keep the roads in repair.

After sampling the juice at the mill a few minutes were allowed for it to reach the clarihers before securing the second sample. Table I.--Analyses of juices.
