the Meeting Wednesday Night
Over One Hundred Present.
There was a large attendance of*
farmers at the meeting, held Wednes
day night at the Y. M. C. A. hall, over
a hundred heing present Most of
those who attended were representa
tive "farmers "from various parts of
the State and the price of cotton was
the dominant idea of the meeting.
The meeting war. called to crder by
Mr. W. B. Harris, of Anderson, and
Mr. E. D. Smith, cf Lee, both stating
that the object of the meeting was to
forward some plan for the control of
the price of cotton.
Mr. N. C. Murray, of Texas, was
present Mr. Murray is a represen
tative of the Farmers' Co-operative
and Educational Association, of Tex
as, and represents a membership of
30,000. He advocated a secret organi'
zation and a ware house system,
which was operated in Texas. Tho
fees and dues are $1.00 initiation foe
and 60 cents a year.
Most of those present were opposed
to any secret organization, remember
ing the wreck of the alliance. There
was also some discussion on the ad
mission of bankers' and business men
j to the organization, and the sense
of the meeting seemed to* be that
they were willing to admit anybody
willing to help. After much discus
sion the permanent organiation was

president, and John Csntey, of Ker
Addresses were then made by a
large number of "those present, but

Mental Anguish Suit.
Lancaster. Special.-The court of
common pleas has been in session
since Monday, Judge Watts presiding.
The most important case thus far
tried is that of W. Alonzo Hughes vs.
the Western Union Telegrapr com
pany. The suit was for $1,900, brought
under the-recent mentai anguish act.
Mr. Hughes resides at Heath Springs
in this county. On December 18th last
his brother, working in a mill near
Coleman. Fla., was accidentally killed.
His sister wired him from Coleman,
Fia., to that effect at 11:50 a. m. the
came day. The telegram was not de
livered to Mr. Hughes until 2 p. m. the
next day. Owing to thc delay in the
transmission and delivery of the mes
sage the plaintiff did not reach Cole
man until two days after bis brother
was buried. The jury rendered a ver
dict for the plaintiff for $700. R. E.
Wylie, Esq.. represented the plaintiff
and J. Hardin Marion, Esq., of Ches
ter and C. D. Jones, Esq., the defend
ant. The court will occupy the remain
der of the week with jury cases.
The Australian eucalyptus tree Is
being grown on a large scale in South
ern Europe and Northern Africa be
cause of its tendency to drain swamps.
Ttls was formerly supposed to be due
to abundant exhalation of watery va
por from its leaves, but it has been
shown that actually the transpiration
o? the eucalyptus is only one-half or
one-third that of willows, birches and
other, trees,, and it is, therefore, as
sumed that the phenomenon in ques
tion is due simply to the rapid growth j
of the eucalyptus.

? Aiken Landmark Burned.
Aiken, Special.-The residence of
Sherill Owen Alderman, on South
.Boundary Avenue, was totally destroy
?d by fire last week. When the fire
was discovered the roof of the kitch
en was burning fiercely, and, the
weather being so dry, the building
burned like tinder. The residence
was situated on the extreme edge of
the .city, and was some distance from
the engine house, and when the fire?
?men reached the scene very little
could be clone but save the outbuild
ings. The fire is supposed to have
originated by sparks from the kitch
en flue. ' Very little of the furniture
was saved. The building was one of
the landmarks of Aiken, being per
haps 50 years old. Sheriff Alderman
estimates his loss at about $3,500.
This is partially covered by insurance,
he carrying-$1,600 on the house and
$600 on the furniture, not including
the two pianos saved.

"The representatives of fertilizer
mills- who wen? here last week seem
to be very much pleased with the out
look. It was reported unofficially that
suits now pending in the courts will
be suspended, pending definite action
by the fertilizer board, which is to
meet here in November, and will then
give the mills another hearing. The
law requires the fertilizers to have
certain definite quantities of chemi
cals. In some parts of the State the
board has found fertilizers which fall
below the requirements and the sell
ers have been made the defendants
in legal, action. The matter was ar
gued bofore representatives of the
board and the mill managers were
^.\ld that there would be anothe meet

disavow any intention to sell impure
or worthless fertilizers and declare
that they want the law enforced, but
they argue that the law is imperfect.
Spartanburg, Special.-A serious
and perhaps fatal accident befell J.
Walker, a well known young man who
was at one time engaged in the insur
ance business in this city, but who
more recently took up work in the
Spartan' Mills, some time roar the
noon hour. He was found in an un
conscious condition lying at the foot
a iander leading from one of the
work rooms to the tower in Mill No.
1, and the supposition is that in at
tempting to mount the ladder he fell,
robably%a distance of not more than
ten feet. The floor of the room is
made of cement and the force of the
fall uon the hard covering resulted in,
it is thought, concussion of the brain.
. A special from Johnston to the Col
umbia State says:
"Tuesday on the Padgett pla*e?
about six miles from here, a tenant
house occupied by John Holloway, col
ored, and his family, was destroyed,
with its Contents, by fire and three
of the children burned to death, aged
about 1 month, 2 and 5 years. Hollo
way and his wife, it is said, were
in the field at. the time the house was
discovered in flames, which is sup
posed' to have caught in a pile of
cotton on thc floor. The door was
not fastened, but even the older child
failed to escape."

United States grand jury has made a
report to Judge Jones, covering the
?lynching of Horace Maples, and ex
pressed the opinion that had Maples ?
not been a negro, he would not have
been taken from jail and lynched.
The grand jury indicted several al
leged members of the mob. The re
port says that something must be
done to put a stop to lynching in the
[South, and that all good citizens
'should welcome anything that may
'have that effect, whether from the
State or Federal courts. Judge Jones
thanked the jury and said he was will

Valley Falls Receivership.
Spartanburg, Special.-Judge Purdy
has filed his opinion in Ute Valley

appointing E. S. Tennent permanent
receiver. This appointment was
made at the suggestion of a large
number of the creditors of the con

is likely that the United State courts

fight for permanent receivership or

Just made its appearance in France.
It consists of a perfect representation,
in antique silver, of an old church,
transparent enamel forming the
stained windows. The clock dial is
one inch in diameter and is placed ia

proper can be raised, disclosing a
gold-lined receptacle for matches.
