Southern Bivouac, Vol. 5 : June, 1886-December, 1886 (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from Southern Bivouac, Vol. 5: June, 1886-December, 1886 After having been carried on for nearly forty years, on a limited scale, and with spas modic efforts, cane culture was practically abandoned in the colony in 1766. The ﬂoods of the Mississippi River were scarcely te strained by the very defective levee system existing along the river coast, where cane culture was then confined; the crops had been occasionally destroyed by West Indian hurri canes sweeping up across the Gulf of Mexico. The proper methods of preserving seed and protecting Stubble from the rigors of winter in the temperate zone were then unknown, and the primitive and incapacious machinery employed in the conversion of the crops into marketable products was unsatisfactory in its results.
