EXISTING CONDITIONS DISCUSSED
President Heath's Analysis of the Sit

Cotton and Small Returns for the
Washington, Special.-The American
Cotton Manufacturers' Association re
sumed here Wednesday for ita eighth
annual session. The meetings are being
held in the banquet hall of the Arling
ton Hotel, and will last two days.
Abou? ^00 members of the associa
tion were present. The programme of
the morning session included addresses
by W. C. Heath, of Monroe, N. C., pres
ident bf the association; Secretary Cor
tclyou, of the Department oi Com
merce-and Labor; R. M. Miller, Jr., of
Charlotte, N. C.; Prof. R. C.- Carpen
ter, of Ithaca, N. Y., and J. W. Nor
wood, of Greenville, S. C.
President Roosevelt is to receive the
members of the association at the
President Heath in his address said
the most serious condition now con
fronting the cotton manufacturers is
the high price of the raw cotton,
coupled with the small returns for tile
manufactured product. The manufac
turers are largely responsible for this
condition, he said. When the price of
raw cotton began to go up recently,
they had told their customers that the
increase was due to speculation and
manipulation. This, he asserted, was
not the case. The high price of raw
cotton was due solely to a response to
the law of supply and demand. The
scarcity of farm laborers in the South,
due to the migration of the negro to
the cities, is one of the serious condi
tions to be met To meet it the immi
gration of italian and other foreign
farm labor will have to be encouraged.
Touching on' the labor problem, Mr.
Heath asserted that while, the right of
labor to organize was not questioned,
neither should the right of capital to
combine be questioned. The power of
labor organizations, he said, was being
put at present t?menlo dangerous uses.
It was menacing Individual rights; it
was even asking the government to fix
the hours of labor. These develop
ments, he concluded, threatened the
very principles of the government.

Conditions Reported by Department
for Patt Week. fc
' The week ending 8 a. m., May 9 th,
had a mean temperature of 69 degrees--,
which is slightly less than one degree.1
below normal, due to cool weather dur-.
ing the first, and warm during the last
of the week. There was more than the
normal amount of cloudiness, and the
deficiency in sunshine was harmful to
rice and cotton.
The rainfall was below normal, and
ranged from a mere trace to over an
Inch and a half. The western, end the
second tier, from the coast, of eastern
counties had the largest amounts, the
north central ones the smallest. The
showers were local, in. character, and
largely insufficient, but It is safe to as
sume that in one-third of the State the
drought has been relieved, or nearly
so, although more rain would prove
beneficial in all sections. Hall occur-'
red at a few places, doing no damage.
The week was favorable for the rapid
progress of farm work, and staple cropB
have been planted with the exception
of bottom lands and late rice. As axule
cultivation has kept pace with the
growth of crops and fields are fr?e
from grass and weeds. Cut worms, bud
worms and birds continue to damage
stands of corn on bottoms, and Col
orado beetles have appeared on whit?,
There is a general improvement,
noted in corn where showers occurred,
in stands, growth and color, but where
the rainfall was light, or where none
fell, it remains small and yellow. Most
of it has received its first cultivation,
and some its second. Considerable re
planting is being done.
Cotton is coming up better, and
stands have improved materially, dur-,
lng the last week, and generally the
plants have a healthier look, but on
red, and clay lands germination and
growth continue slow and unsatisfac
tory. Early cotton is being replanted
in many sections, while later plant
ings are coming up to good stands on
sandy lands. Some have received its
first cultivation and has been chopped
in the southern counties. Sea Island
cotton was greatly benefited by the
showers and humid, warmer weather.
Tobacco transplanting is finished, but
growth has been slow. The acreage is
only from one-fifth to one-half that of
last year. Oats are poor, and are head
ing low In all sections, except on moist
bottoms. Wheat is more promising,
and although low. ls heading well, and
is in bloom. White potatoes are poor
in the coast districts, and promising in
the interior. Shipments have begun
from the former sections, also of beans.
Truck is late, except strawberries that
are bearing exceptionally well. Exces
sive dropping of peaches is noted in
all save the "ridge" sections, where
from three-fourths to a full crop is in
dicated. Early peaches and plums are
ripening along the coast. Apples and
cherries are promising In the western
counties. Sweet potato sprouts are
scarce. Minor crops are in normal con
dition. J. WT Bauer, Section Director.
THE FUN-FLOWER CARNIVAL.
Columbia People and Visitors Will
Have a Great Entertainment.
Columbia is preparing for a spring
carnival which will exceed in attract
iveness anything before attempted at
at this time of year by the capital
city. The Chamber of Commerce is
back of the undertaking, and has re
ceived assurance from a number oT
towns In the State which Indic?t?'t???fJj
the attendance will be as large as the
crowds which gather In Columbia
fair week. The day of attractions on
the streets will be one of the best ,
carnival shows that could be obtained,
and the great night attractions will
be the fireworks-the fall of Pompeii
-by the Pain Company, presenting a
ballet of 300 people.
But the great feature of the week
will be the floral parade Thursday
afternoon, May 26.-There will be two
miles of vehicles gaily decorated, the
procession being led by the king and
queen in State. The coronation will
take place at the State capitol just
before the gorgeous caravan proceeds
up Main street. This feature alone
will attract many people to Columbia,
for the most beautiful feature of a
reunion week last year was the floral
parade. Thursday night there will be
a grand ball, which will equal in pomp
and circumstance the State balls of
fair weeks. Indeed it is proposed to

At 7.30 the jury waa adjoruned un
t? 9.30 Wednesday morning, when
the session will likely be held at

inquest was the discovery of a 32
calibre pistol ball in the body, which
might have boen discharged from an
empty pistol of the same calibre

-The ball had passed through the fifth
rib, entering in front, had penetrated
the heart, a back rib and lodged in

holes were fo?nd in the clothing othe^
than where the bullets entered, but
beneath them the body was found in
tact. The right hand was found
missing and was probably borne awar
by wild beasts. A white pearl button,
which could not have belonged to
the murdered man, was found near.
There ls Httlo doubt but that the ball
penetrated the heart, as the physi
cians found evidence of hemorrhage
in that portion of the body, and an
Immense amount of blood congested
back of the lungs. Detectives on the
scene made careful examination of
the pistol, finding lt to be a Smith

importance. The little life germ within

WATER FOR SHEEP.
Sheep need water most In dry sum
ner, but when the grass is .'resh and
rrowing well less is required. You
might as well expect joni* dairy cows
0 produce milk, some seventy or eighty
per cent, of water, as to expect your
^reeding ewes to raise lambs that are
Irinking milk on grass alone. In win
ier when they are eating dry feed more
?vater is taken than when they are sup
plied, with roots or silage. Ordinarily
1 sheep should have from one to six
juarts of water daily, according to
sheather and feed. There is no place
n which sheep will take water with
more zest than In a shed. In such a
place water does not freeze nearly so
rapidly as outside. A shallow trough
s best, and In very cold weather, if

the accumulation of icc. lt is a uiis

trough in which cattle drink.
GRUBBING OUT STUMPS.
Grubbing out stumps or trees is a
iard job, if all the roots are removed.
It does not pay to dig out nil the roots
?xcept in road building or digging eel-. J
ors. The best way to remove small-.,
trees from the soil is to cut them down
six or eight inches from the ground.
Dig the soil away from the stump,
from four to six inches deep, cut a
length of stove wood from the stump
ind cover the roots with soil. It is
much easier to cut the tree twice than
?ut it through the tough roots the first
time, as it is a hard job to work out a
?hip long enough to fell the tree ex
cept hewing out a little nt a time by
taking tiers of chips. When cutting
the stump the blocks may be split off
In thin pieces working around the
stump to get the narrowest side each
time. The roots remaining in the soil
tvill decay in a few years, causing the
soil to settle a little, which may be

jut on whether the feed is bought or
.aised, says an exchange. The ration
.'or laying liens should be such that
;he nutritive ratio to the egg produc
ng properties should be about one in
"our. This can best be produced with
:ut clover, middlings, bran, corn meal,
.'or a morning mash, with grain in
.ariety, corn, rye, buckwheat, wheat,
nillet, etc. A fair amount of green j
'ood, cabbage, carrots, potatoes, etc., j
ihould be mixed in in the mash oc
:asioually or fed raw every few days.
)n such rations a hen may be kept at
i cost of about seventy-cents a year,
ess if the food is raised.
Buckwheat is one of the best of
;rain foods for fowls and addi', great
s' to egg production. Kaffir corn and
nillet are also good If they can be
aised or bought at a low price. On the
