Baltimore, October 7.-Each of 15 mon
to day contributed two pieces of tho skin
of his leg in a remarkable skin grafting
operation, performed at the Maryland
University hospital, which will, the phy
sicians say, save the life of .lames 1$.
Hughes, who seven weeks ago fell into a
tank of hot waler while at work in
Washington. The accident took every
vestigo of skin from one of Hughes1 legs
and the most leisistent efforts of tho
doctors since nave brought not tho
slightest Indications Of healing. As tho
only means of saving tho man's lifo skin
graf ting was resorted to and two pieces
of the outer skin, each piece one by six
inches, wore to-day transferred from
oach of fifteen of his friends to Hughes'
injured leg. Tho operation lasted an
hour and a half and nono of those who
contributed was nnestiiized. Each o? tho
fifteen men will be in tho hospital for tho

With thc continued prosperity
that is now blessing this State there
is every indication that the State
Fair for 1905 will be more largely
attended than ever before in its his- 1
tory. Last year the South C arolina
State Agricultural and Mechanical
Society celebrated its annual bair
at its new home in the southern sn- 1
buib of Columbia. As is usually i
the case, there were some little de
tails that could not be finished for <
the holding of the last Fair, but ;
President littignard has had a full 1
year in which to have ali of these
rough spots smoothed out, and the !
outlook is that never before in its i
history will the State Pair haye a 1
more sticcccsful Fair than thal <
which is t?> bc held herc on < >ctobcr ;
24th. 25th, 26th, and 271h, inclusive. I
.Thc inquiry for space at lite ?
grounds, as well as from small ex
hibitors, indicate a v<. > .m un al ap 1
preciatioti of thc value of such ex t

being shown in the mechanical dc <

There is, however, a far more i ti - \

President Smith Says Hold Cotton.
Tho fullov. ii)"; appeal to tho farmer**
merchants and bankers uf thu Statu is
made by the president of tho Suuthern
?'ol tun Assuciatiun, K. I). Smith:
Tu the Farmers, Merchants and Hankers
nf South Carolina:
In view of tho present decline in the
price of cotton 1 consider it my duty tn
make an appeal to thu farmers tu huh!
their cotton off the market. I ask that
the merchants and hankers assist them
in doing this. Tho merchants by not
pressing them, and the bankoss by lend
ing them sullicieut uionoy nu thoir cut
tun tu enable thom tu moot the obliga
tions that cannot bo defer; cd.
Tho price Axed hy the oxocutivo com
mittee at Asheville at ll cents may seem
tu sumo rather high, but when thu Now
Orleans ennvontiun fixed cotton at 10
cents tho difToronco between tho current
price at that time and 10 cents was very
much greater than tho current prico now
and ll cents. You will recall that cut
ton when tho Now Orleans convention
assembled was under sovon, about six
and a half. Hy standing together, hy
unity of action, by a little sacritico and
patriotism, tho Southern Cotton Asso
ciation forced the COOSUmei to pay to tho
producer more than 10 cents, flavo you
thought what that difToronco in prico
meant to thc individual and thu South?
The grower has a righi to lix the price Of
his product, and eau lix it if he will
stand by this association, which is mak
ing a gallant fight to keep tho specula
tors lunn getting cotton at their own
Let every farmer withdraw his cotton
from the market. This will cheek tho
receipts, and the mai kel will bo obliged
to advance. If you havo to sell try to
find sonic man who will buy it aud retire
it frum tho market. Thoro aro plenty uf
mon in each cuunty uf sufllciont moans
and patriotism to do this.
In spito of tho report circulated by tho
boars and their allied interests who are
tryiag to depress the prico of your cot
ton, wo aro reliably informed through
out the Southern States, through the in
fluence of tho Southern Cotton Associa
tion, that tho farmers aro holding their
cotton off the market. Let us stand by
our Southern brothers in this great fight.
It means the financial emancipation of
our beloved soot bland.
In a word tho situation resolves itsolf
into a clear, clean-cut battle betwixt tho
fanner and tho speculator. Had tho
government report been bullish and con
ditions reported such as to warrant an
advance in the future market, it would
have been claimed that conditions war
ranted or brought about tho minimum
price for which we are contending. As
ii is the government has brought out an
other ridiculous estimate as to condition,
and the bears aro confidently predicting
a largo crop; therefore if tho farmers
I and merchants will now hole1 nlT thoir
; i nt ton-absolutely hold it oft-tfie spin
ners must havo thoir supplies and com
ing into tho market will quickly raiso
j tho price to that of our minimum. This
seems almost another providential op
portunity like last year to test our
? ability to control the market. Let every
I mau see to it that he will absolutely
withhold his cotton for 80 days.

Deafness Cannot be Cured
by local applications, as they cannot
reach tho diseased portion of the oar.
Thero is only ono way tu euro deafness,
and that is by constitutional remedies.
Deafness is caused by an inflamed con
ditton uf the mucous lining of tho eusta
chian tubo. When this tubo gets inflamed
you have a rumbling sound or imporfect
hearing, and whon it is entirely closed
deafness is tho result, and unless the
inflammation can bo taken out and this
tube restored to its normal condition,
hearing will bo destroyed forever. Nine
cases mit of ten are caused by catarrh,
which is not liing but an iutlamod condi
tion of the mucous surfaces.
Wo will give one hundred dollars for
any case of deafness (caused by catarrh)
that cannot bo cured by Hall's Catarrh
Cure. Send for circulars free.

Difference of Opinion.
Dallas, Texas, October 6.-Col. E. S.
Peters,! vice president of the Southern
Cotton Association, has issued a letter
to farmers advising them to sell their
cotton. This lotter is expected to arouse
criticism in the Southern Cotton Asso
ciation, as tho officer* of that organiza
tion, supported by tho Farmors' Union,
have advised farmers to hold their cot
ton for ll couts. Col. Peters says bo be
lieves that cotton will not KO any higher
and he predicts a big crop.
Atlanta, October 0.-President Harrie
Jordan, of the Southern Cotton Asso
ciation tu-day issued an open lotter to
tho farmers of tho South in which he
urges them to hold thoir cotton fur at
least two woekB. Ho slates that if the
farmers of tho South stand together fur
two weeks and hold their cutton thoy
will win the fight against those who aro
ondeavoring to depress tho price of tho
staple. In his lotter, President Jordan
refers to the advice of former Vice Presi
dent Poters, of Texas, to BOII cotton. Ho
reminds tho formers of the South of tho
faot that the resignation of Mr. Poters as
vico presidont of tho Southern Cotton
Association; was demanded by tho execu
tive committee September 6, contending
that Mr. Peters is no longer vico presi
dent of tho association, and has no right
to Bign himsolf as such.
Presidont Jordan closes his lottor to
tho farmors with a strung appeal to
"stand together and resist to tho last
overy attempt to break tho present or
ganized effort of tho producers to secure
lair prices for their staple."
