the history of that property a large
yield combining with a high price of
sugar. This appears In his report

The annual meeting of the corpor
ation was held In the offices of the

Manager Hull's report Is very com
plete. One interesting feature of It
Is the test made of the relative value
of the Lnhalna and Yellow Caledonia
cane varieties. The Yellow Caledo
nia proved much better able to with
stand the attacks of the leaf-hopper
and produced more cane to the acre
but less of sugar to the acre.
In referring to crop conditions the
We commenced grinding tho crop
of 1908 on Dec. 17th, 1907. and fin
ished on September 7th. 1908. Tho
crop was harvested from the follow
ing areas: l'lnnt enne, 053. .1 acres,
long nitoon 3273.6 acres, short'rn
toon S57 acres; total, 4483.9 acres.
Our estimato for the above was 31
000 tons; tho actual output for the
J ear was 30,270 tons. In addition tn
which there were ground .140 tons
cane purchased from outstdo plant
ers, which produced 44 tons, making
n total of 35,320 tons (or 35,716
tons sugar of 96 degrees) manufac
tured; an excess of 4.320 tons sugar
over the estimate. The great excess
In yield over estimate Is due mainly
to the exceptionally fine quality of
the cane Juices, nnd to the fact that
the damage done to the cane by leaf
hopper was much less than had been
anticipated. The average yield from
plant and long ratoons was larger
than for several years past, and the
sucrose In cane considerably higher
than It had been during any preced
ing season; only 6.76 tons of cano
per ton sugar being tho average for
the wholo crop, while from some of
the fields on tho tipper lands but 5.9
tons of cane were required per ton
sugar. The average yield per ncro
for the crop was about 7.88 tons su
tir the crop of 1909 thero aro to
be harvested the following: Plant
cane 883.24 acres, long ratoons 2,

For tho crop of 1910 we have
planted 1005.3 acres, Including 82.9
acres of new land In Wnlplo, which
In addition to 2949.4 acres of long
ratoons and 303.8 acres of short ra
toons will bring the total area for
this crop up to 4258,5 acres. Plant
ing for this crop was finished during
' tho first week of September, and nl
I though the weather has been exceed
llngly dry, the oung cane, plant as
well as ratoons, arc looking very well
, and we anticipate good returns when
It is harvested.
Kor the crop of 1911 we hope to
plant 852 acres or possibly more, and
have nlroady made a good start with
the steam plows. In order to get tho
planting dona as early as possible.
The total area for the 1911 crop will

Mill crop 1908. The largest crop
In the history of the plantation was
milled during the past season, and
the work In the factory, as shown by
the mill report, was excellent
throughout. The cost of manufac
ture was lower than for the previous
crop, and the grinding was finished
earlier than usual, giving ample
time for thoroughly overhauling and
repairing tho machinery In the mill

Improvements. The expendi
tures for permanent improvements,
which Includes stock bought In the
California & Hawaiian Sugar Itcfln
Ing Co., have been larger than usual
and aggregated $199,421.25 for tho
year. A considerable portion of this
amount covers the cost and erection
of tho new sugar warehouse, which
has. been added to the mill. This
warehouse Is a substantial stccl
framo building, with corrugated Iron
root nnd sides, and concrete floor
100 x 200, nnd with n storago capac
ity of from six to eight thousand tons
of sugar. It Is equipped with auto
matic conveyors for storing nnd load
Ing tho sugar.
One new 27-ton Daldwin locomo
tive was purchased, and three miles
of new railroad track have been
built, this nddltlon being necessary
n order to hnndlc the larger crops.
Almost three-fourths of a mllo of
24-inch wooden pipe syphon lines
have been laid, partly to replace old
flumes, nnd partly for conducting wa

"I was just entering my home one
morning when a husky young fellow
accosted me," said Battling Nelson
"Tho fellow said his namo was
Pudden Hums, and I found that he
was a citizen of Hcgewlsch and work
ed at the carshops.
''Go and get some money," I told
him', "nnd then we'll talk."
He reached right down In his
pocket and came out with a roll.
There was nothing to It. I had
another fight on my hands.
In two hours the wholo town was
talking about the coming bout, and
we arranged to have tho mill In an
empty store not far from my home.
This fellow Pudden Hums wanted
to show mo up rlgh In my home
trwn, and I always had a sneaking
idea that tho Swedes put him up to
It. They didn't want to see a Dane
winning all the glory.
That fellow gave me a tough fight
of It, however, and stayed the full
six rounds, though I mauled him nil
over the ring, At .the end ot the
last round the refcreo gave mo the
decision and Pudden didn't kick. Ho
said he thought that I had won. I
got $75 for turning this trick, and
thnt entitled ma to stay a few more
da) a nt home.
Uy this tlmo my father had given
up all Iden of making mo stop tho
fighting game, and very prlvutoly ouo
day he said: "Go ahead, vecn do
chnmpcenshlp!" Willi that to urge
mo on 1 finally made good.
As a matter of fact I think my start
for the championship began that
wk. 1 went over Into Indiana
again and was Jobbed out of a deci
sion when I met Hilly Hurley at
Hammond. The referee called the
bout a draw and tho aftnlr came
near winding ifp In a free for all
I was losing confidence In the hon
esty of officials and I decided to quit
mat part or tho country entirely and
stek a new field."

"Copy," The Soul Of
COPY" is the soul of advertising. Advertis
ing space, without good "copy," is like a
wooden Indian in front of ,a cigar store;
it locates the store, but docs not say anything."
Even the smallest country merchant no longer
fills his space with flapdoodle about the " best goods
in town at lowest prices." He knows that merely
buying space is not advertising; and, having paid for
the space, ordinary business sense counsels him to
make it yield profitable returns.
This can be done only through copy that is
honest, sincere, and convincing. Anybody with
money can buy space in a paper, but very few can
write the copy that pulls business.
Writing advertisements is our business, and wc
have made a study ot it, as every man must do of his
own business. Wc know how to write paying ads.
Let us hear from you about your ads.
