tlio prnlrlo lauds back from tho bayous
(ould bo bought for SI nil uvtc. With
almost tlio drat crop under Irrigation,
however, the values showed a marked
rise nod have continued to Increase.
In tho llrst live .ears the value of tho
best lice land rose to $10 an ncie, and
soon after that It rose to &!U and oven

The first people to plant rice In south
ern Louisiana, nccoidlug to the Unit
ed Slates geological survey, were tho
AcadlniiM, who, after their expulsion i
from .Nova Scotia by tho English in
!", settled In considerable number;)
In Louisiana. Their cultivation of rice,
almost prluilthe lu Its methods, was
con lined to the lowlands along the
bayous, (ho prairies affording paHttir-
.ago for the Aendliiiis holds of cuttle
IViv of the lowland areas admitted of
satisfactory dialiiugc. and they ucto
too small for ptolltiihlc cultivation.
The crops frequently lulled In years of
deficient rainfall Attempts wcte niado
to create additional water supplies by i
building Uncos ueioss low sngs or
coulees nt points higher than tile cul
tlvuted areas, but generally either tlio i
rainfall proved dellelent or tlio reer I
volrs were too small I
Little ndvamo was made over the
Acadian method!) until recent years i
Experiments In unusually wet years
hud shown thnt the soils of the prairies
were ndnptcd to the growth of rUo If
Hiilllcleut water was at hand. This led
to tho trial of pumps us a menus of
raising water from the bayous to the
rice fields. So successful wns the test
that pumps were at unco Installed at
many points, and lu a few years tens
of thousands of neies of previously al
most useless land, lying ten to seventy
feet nbove the bayous, were put under
cultivation. The tlrst large pump was
Installed lu 1S!U on the llnyou I'laque
uiluo, In Acadia parish, near Crowley.
