WEDNESDAY, DEC. 7.
PECANS BEAT 4c COTTON.
Prom a late issue of the Albany
(Ga.) Herald, we gather the fol
lowing in reference to the paying
capacity of the Pe-^n business,
and publish the same as a hint to
those who are sick of four 'cent
cotton : .
"At all the fruit stands of Al
bany are the finest fresh pecans
for Bale. They are obtained from
the farm of Capt. G. M. Bacon, of
Mitchell county, and are the paper
. shell variety. Some ten years ago
Capt. Bacon set out a peach or
. chard and a pecan orchard. The
pecans have proved much more re
v munerative. He gets three dollars
per bushel on the farm. The trees
bear every year."

of the heavy winds. No great

A few dispatches received at the

other points along the south New

The wind at Atlantic City
reached a maximum velocity at 10

severe rain and wind storm that

Sixty miles an hour was the wind
velocity given out by the weather
bureau, the highest for 19 years.
The fury of the wind was not long
continued. For eight minutes
its velocity varied between 55 and
60 miles. But this was long enough
to do great damage. Fully 800
houses were blown down, trees
uprooted and poles leveled. Tele

The death of this high-toned gentle

his death is truly most; lamentaole,

so capable* and kind. Like his D: .::e
