Example text

Almost the whole vast area of ten million acres in Lower Burma, as distinct from Upper Burma, has been brought under cultivation during the past seventy-five years— the period which coincides with the rapid growth of Steel Brothers from small begin­ nings to the pre-eminent position occupied today as the largest millers and shippers in the rice trade of the world. It needs to be added that the vast expansion described took place in a country­ side thinly populated and without resources. The factors above all that wrought the transformation were the recruitment of many thousands of labourers from South India and the injection of Indian capital on a large scale.

Luthke & Company, an old-established firm of German millers, to tackle the post-war rice trade together instead of in competition. Both companies having had their mills destroyed, the agreement provided for the re-building of a joint mill which was completed before that year was out, and the partnership has flourished in the post-war era. Thus quickly can the scars of war be healed. Indeed, Steels' historian of the 43 CALLING TO M I N D second century will have much to say about the company's resurgence as a powerful force in the world's rice trade.

Outside the conventional circle there was infinite variety, of which only a few examples can be mentioned. There was the mill built in 1902 by Haηee Mohamed Esoof and sold to Steels during the rice boom of the 1914-1918 war. It was powered by the salvaged engine of an old paddle steamer which sank in the Salween river. There was the combined rice and saw mill erected near Moulmein by William Strang Steel in 1873 on the site of an old ship-building yard. The juxtaposition made possible the use of firewood left over from saw milling by day as fuel for running the rice mill at night.
