The Blade is the recipient of a five-pound sack of choice Texas rice with the compliments of the Tyrrell Milling Co., of Beaumont, Texas. Capt. Tyrrell is the father of Mrs. David Rorick and a frequent visitor to Oceanside, and the rice was a sample of the product of a ranch of three thousand acres which he owns and which is planted to rice. The crop this season was twenty-five thousand barrels and it wasn’t much of a year for rice either.
