New Orleans, Special.-The Southern
Cotton Association issued its cotton
acreage report. The report says:
"The estimated acreage for 1904, as
indicated by the report of the United
States Government, amounted to 31,
"The decrease in the acreage for
1905, as shown by our tabulated state
.ment, which was compiled from 17,754
individual reports from farmers, bank
ers, merchants and others throughout
the cotton belt, fixing the acreage this
year at 25,980,951 acres, a decrease of
18.43 per cent, and 16.05 per cent in fer
"The condition of the crop as report
ed from Louisiana. Texas, Arkansas,
the Territories and portions of Mis

of the acreage in those States and
Territories being yet unpianted, and
large tracts either under water or bad

"In the eastern portion of the cotton
belt the fields are grassy, the cotton
still unchopped, and labor very scarce
throughout the entire belt. The officers
of the association express the highest
commendation of the loyalty of farm

Condition of Cotton.
New York, Special.-The June report
of The Journal of Commerce, points to
a reduction of 12.8 per cent, in acreage,
or even less, and a condition of 77.4
compared with 79.8 per cent, last June.
The largest decrease in acreage, 17.1
per cent., is shown by Texas, and Ar
kansas ranks next with a decrease of
15.3" per cent. North Carolina is 4.2 per
cent, below last June. Louisiana, 13%
per cent.; Oklahoma,*13.7 per cent.;
Mississippi. 13.6 per cent., and Ten
nessee. 12.2. The reduction in South
Carolina is 9.1 per cent.; Georgia, 7.7;
Florida, 9.9; Alabama, 7; the Indian
Territory, 5.3 and Virginia. 9.5. Texas,
Louisiana and Mississippi show de
clines in condition amounting to 7, 12
and ll points respectively, comparing
with a year ago. The condition in the
Carolinas shows a slight improvement
while Georgia and Florida are up 5 and
6 points, respectively. The Indian Ter
ritory indicates a reduction of about 12
points, and Oklahoma a reduction of 5
points. The Journal of Commerce says
that securing a reliable estimate of cot
ton acreage this season is attended
with unusual difficulty, owing to the ac
tive campaign carried on in the South
for a 25 per cent, reduction. Of coursa
no such reduction is to be expected,.but
the agitation has undoubtedly exerted
an important influence, which is shown
by the strong tendency towards large
decrease in making estimates. The re
port is based on reports from 1,800 cor
respondents, whose average date of re
ply was May 23. Weather conditions
have been generally unfavorable for
the entire belt, excessive rains making
fields very grassy and washing out
many of the bottom lands. In conse
quence considerable replanting will be
necessary, but many correspondents
fear that all available labor will be re
quired to cultivate cotton already grow
ing without replanting. The crop is
very late, ranging from one to four
weeks. In spite of the grass, good
stands have been generally obtained
and the plant has a vigorous growth,
and only fair weather is needed to give
the crop an excellent start.
Cotton Needs Cultivation.
Washington, Special.-The weekly
crop report of the Weather Bureau
"Throughout nearly the whole of the
cotton belt cotton is much in need of
cultivation, and reports af abandoned
fields are received from the Carolinas,
Georgia. Alabama and Louisiana.
Good stands are generally reported,
but much planting remains to be done
in northern Texas, and planting is
unfinished in Arkansas. In southern
Texas and In portions of the central
and eastern districts thc situation is
improved, and the crop is doing well
in . localities. Squares are now form

central and eastern districts.
A New Connection.
New York, Special.-The surface
lines in this city are operated by the
Metropolitan Street Railway Company,
which was controlled by the late Wm.
C. Whitney and his associates. This
company plans to build an extensive
sub-way system in competition with
the Inter-borough Rapid Transit Com
pany, which operates the existing sub
way and the Manhattan elevated lines.
Atlanta, Ga., Special.-Georgia's cot
ton acreage has been reduced 13 per
cent as compared with last year, and
there has been a reduction of a little
more than 14 per cent in the amount
of fertilizer used under cotton, accord
ing to the official report of State Com
missioner of Agriculture S. 0. Stevens,
issued Wednesday. The estimate is
based on reports from correspondents
in all parts of the State.

Buffalo, Special.-The Albright Art
Gallery was dedicated in the p:esence
of 10,000 people. Ralph H. Plumb, presi

TWO PERSONS DROWNED
Tragic End of Sunday Diversion in
Sight of Many Persons-Both Bod
Conway, Special.-Mr. S. A. Cau
sey and his nephew, G. Hugh Causey;
were drowned on Sunday at Pitch
landing on the Waccamaw river, four
miles below this place. A number of
men had gathered at this place, well
known to bathers, at about 10 o'clock
in the morning. Mr. Causey was try
ing to teach his little nephew, a boy
about 10 years old, how to swim. They
were the only ones in the water at the
time, with the exception of two swiall
boys. Mr. Causey took his nephew
on his back, and announced his in
tention of swimming across the river,
at that point about 90 yards wide.
When about half way across, he turn
ed around and started back-the reas
on for which no one will ever know.
When within a few feet of the shore,
he suddenly sank, and never rose.
As he went down his nephew loosened
his hold, and tried to reach the bank,
but succeeded only in drifting a few
feet, farther down the stream, before
he too was overcome.
None of the others present were
able to swim, and all efforts made to
gel a boat or reach poles out to the
struggling boy proved unavailing, and
the horror had to be endured of see
ing him go down before their eyes,
just beyond the reach of help.
Mr. Causey was noted for his skill
as a swimmer, and various theories
have been put forward to account for
this most unfortunate accident, the
most plausible being that, due to the
extra burden of the boy's weight, he
felt his strength ebbing, and turned
back, only to be seized with cramp
before reaching shore. This probably
accounts for the fact that he did not
rise after going down the first time.
He was a merchant at Bear Swamp,
and leaves a wife, but no children.
For the past four years he has been
a memoer cf the iocal camp of the
Woodmen of the World, and as soon
as the news of the accident reached
this ola cc. as many of his brethren as
could be summoned went out to fehe
scene. His body was recovered about
ten yards below the point where he
sank, at 4 o'clock in tbe afternoon;
and a few minutes later the boy's body
was found, some distance further
down the river. The members of the
camp also attended the funeral exer
cises, which were solemnized at his
family burial place, called "Camp
The many friends and relatives of
deceased have done everything within
their power to show their sympathy

Farmer Killed Tenant.
Florence, Special.-Alonzo Murphy,
colored, was shot and killed by Jim
Cole, a young white farmer, near the
city. Murphy lived on Cole's planta
tion and was beating his wife. She went
over to Mr. Cole's residence nearby and
appealed to him for help. Cole went
back with her and told him he had
come to advise him and meant no
trouble: however he must stop beating
his wife and having so much noise
on his plantation. Murphy became
enraged and picked up his gun, which,
it is said, was loaded with buckshot,
pointed it at Cole and fired, but Cole
knocked it up just as it fired, the load
going over his head. Murphy then
jumped on Cole to fight him and when
Cole found that Murphy was getting,
the best of him he pulled his pistol
to shoot him. Murphy tried to take
it from him. Finally Mr. Cole shot
him twice, one of the bullets passing
through his body and killing him in

a young white man, was arrested here
on a warrant issued by the magistrate
at Ogden, charging him with attempt
ing thc life cf W. L. Baskins, a well
to-do farmer of the Ogden neighbor
hood. It is alleged by Baskins that
Mobley shot at him several times with
a shot.gun and fired the same weapeon
through thc window of his residence,
into a room where Mrs. Baskins, her
two children, and her mother, Mrs.
Parish, were standing. Baskins, while
the shooting was going on, ran to the
house of a neighbor and returned
with a gun and acquaintance, a Mr.
Parrish, who was armed with a rifle.

Conditions For Past Week as Given
Out by the Department.
-The first half of the week ending
Monday, May 29th, was much cooler
than usual, the latter half had nearly
normal temperatures. There was a
harmful deficiency in sunshine. High
easterly winds prevailed generally,
though the winds were light at the
close of the week. Light frost was
reported from Cherokee county on the
22nd and 23rd.
There were from four to six days
with rain and in places the precipi
tation was excessive, notably in Darl
ington and Chesterfield counties where
lands wert: badly washed and bottom
lands flooded. The weekly amount of
rain was largely in excess of the nor
mal in the central counties, but the
ground was kept wet so that only from
one to three days plowing and culti
vation were practicable. Hoeing made
Farm work was further delayed and
is backward with many fields very
foul with grass and weeds, and there
is a continued scarcity of farm lab
orers in all parts of the State, so that
the grassy fields are becoming a ser
ious menace to crops.
While a few reports indicate that
cotton is doing well on u#lands, more
especially on red and clay lands that
have been cultivated, the majority of
the reports indicate; the croeto be in
an unpromising condition with the
plants small, and red or yellow, and
their growth checked by the cool
nigths. Many fields are grassy and
the probability is that some will be
abandoned in all sections of the State,
owing to their foul condition and the
impracticability' of cleaning them.
Plants continue to die on sandy lands'.
Lice haye appeared in a number of
counties. Chopping made fair pro
gress, but has not been finished in the
western counties. Sea Island cotton
is in a poor condition.
Early corn that has been properly
cultr. ated is promising, but the lar
ger portion of the crop is yellow and
sickly. Planting of bottom lands
made slow progress during the week,
and there is still much to be planted.
Wheat is ripening and some has been
cut. Oats are generally fine, espe
cially spring oats. Fall oats are rip
ening and harvest is under way. It
has been too wet for tobacco and
some is flring.
Some peas have been sown, and
sweet potatoes transplanted. Truck
shipments have about ended. Truck
wet weather has caused peaches to
rot badly. Pastures are fine and gar
dens are doing well.-J. W. Bauer,
Settlement With Counties.
Columbia, Special.-The comptroller
general has decided upon a uniform
date for settlements between the tax
department of the State and the tax
department of the counties and has
issued the following letter to county
auditors, treasurers, supervisors and
superintendents of education:
"It becomes necessary to fix a uni
formn date for the annual settlement
between county auditors and county
treasurers. All annual settlements
will hereafter be made July 1st, or as
soon as possible after that date. Coun
ty treasurers, supervisors and superin
tendents of education are directed at
the close of business June 30th .to
close and balance their books. These
officers with their books and vouchers
will meet ir. th? county auditor's of

with the foreman or committee of the
grand jury and county auditor, and
proceed to verify the charges and
credits taken in said settlement, as
made up by the county auditor and
"County auditors will bear in mind
that upon them rests the responsibil
ity for carrying out these instruc
tions and for the correctness of the
settlement, for it is marifestly impos
sible for the comptroller general or his
representative to examine and verify
the thousands of. items going to make
up the charges and credits, and he
must therefore depend, in a great
measure, upon county officials cover
ing the same. When the settlement is
made up notify this office; a date will
then be fixed to examine and approve
"County supervisors and county su
perintendents of education will pre

a record for absolute integrity. In his

For Systematic Scientific Research
Prof. Pearson, the English scientist,
has been considering the suggestion
of Prof. Simon Newcomb looking tc
the systematization of scientific re
search by organizing investigators inte
what might be termed battalions. Dr.
Pearson says that what science needs
at present is to get rid of most of Its
data, and investigators with brains
enough to interpret what is left. "At
least 50 per cent of the observations
made and the data collected," says
Prof. Pearson, "is worthless, and nc
man, however able, e,ouId deduce any
result from them at all. In engineer's
language, we need to 'scrap-heap'
about 50 per cent of the products oj
nineteenth century science."

Shoe Lacer tor Fat People.
Mrs. Elizabeth Falconer of Louis
ville, Ky., has just perfected wt in
vention which promises to revolution
ize the lacing of shoes by fat people.
The invention enables men or wom
en to lace their .shoes without stoop
ing, and although it was not invented
primarily for rat men-there- are no
fat women-it will be utilized as
much by them as by the aged and in
firm, for whose comfort it was
brought into the world. The inven
tion is simple. One lace string is per
manent in positon, and pulling the top
of it laces the shoes. Pulling the bot
tom string loosens the shoe.
It is a fact, that when the city man
and boy take a vacation from their
toil and the city woman and girl
from their home duties they gener
ally want to take what Dr. Adler
calls an ethical vacation, too. The
country people know and feel this
and some of their most conscientious
people resent it, declares the New
York Mail. They object that city
people, let loose in the country, do
things which they v,-ould not do at
home. Hatless and coatless, city
girls who are careful of their con
duct at borne sit saucily-on the coun

vinced I ate too rapidly, and failed to
masticate my food properly.
"The result was that I found myself,
a few years ago, afflicted with ailments
of the stomach aud kidneys, which in
terfered seriously with my business.
"At last I took the advice of friends
and b?gan to eat Grape-Nuts Instead of
the heavy meats, etc., that Ixid consti
tuted my former diet.
"I found that I was nt once benefited
by tho change, that I was soon relieved
from tlie heart-burn and the indigestion
that used to follow my meals, that the
pains In my back from my kidney af
fection had ceased, showing that those
orgaus had been healed, and that my
nerves, which used to be unsteady, and
my brain, which was slow and lethargic
from a heavy diet of meats and greasy
foods, had, not in a moment, but grad
ually, and none the less surely, been
restored to normal efficiency. Now
every nerve is steady and my brain
and thinking faculties are quicker and
more acute than for years past.
"After my old style breakfasts I used
to suffer during the forenoon from a
feeling of weakness which hindered me
seriously in my work, '.mt since I
have begun to use Grape-Nuts food I
can work till dinner time with all ease

down and killed two coyotes. The an

over a section of thc country that was
deep in snow. At the approach cf the
train the coyotes attempted to jump
from the track but the high banks of
snow* prevented this, so they tried to

"I think the railways should make
their own rates. I think they should

that is done in some States at the

should confiscate the property of a
railroad; it is not necessary that you

put in a rate that is inherently un
reasonable, you have deprived that
company of its rights, of its property,
and the Circuit Court of the United

have looked at these cases a great
many times, and I can only come to the
conclusion flint a railroad compauy is
