Columbia, April 17.-A killing frost
occurred thia morning over the whole (
of South Carolina and practically over
the whole of the cotton and truck belts
east of the -Mississippi. The line ol
Iroats reached nearly to the Gulf, and
ou the Atlantic coast began at Jack
sonville aud included the Atlantic
States us far as Pennsylvania. The
frost waa killing over tho whole of
TeuneaBee, und over the northern
parts of .Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia
nud the western parts of South and
North Carolinn, and over practically
tho whole of Virgiuia, including the
Norfolk truck districts. Ina number
of placea in South Carolina the tem
perature fell to or below freer.hvg. lu
Jolumbia the minimum wes shphtly
below 83 degrees, at Blackville SO, at
BateBburg 81 and at Greenville 25.
Charleston had a minimum ot -10 de
grees and Wilmington 80. There aro
no reports available of tho amount of
damage that was don? by the frost,
except in tho vicinity of Columbia,
where it appears that all tender vege
tation, including held and garde*
oreps, were seriously hart or elso kill
ed outright. It is probable that the
damage was as great in other locali
ties where the frost was killing or
where the temperature fell to 82 de
gress or below.
It will be impossible to determino
for some days to what extent fruit was
hurt, if at au. It is probable, however,
that where the temperature fell to be
low 80 degrees a large part of the
peach, apricot, cherry and cultivated
plum Betting will drop in the next two
weeks. It may be that on accouut of
the nearly full grown foliage, which
would tend to protect the fruit, tb?-"
dam a ?o may prove to be email or ic
significant. The damage to trunk cac.i
be determined much sooner, bat it is -
not thought thctit was equal to & tota!
loee of what is up to stunde, even is >?
the interior truck districts, while or:
the count the damage is perhaps only <
nominal ia this Stale. Young cotton
that was up will no doubt have to foe
replanted, but much corn,though nip- -
ped, will sprout again and will nofc
iiced to bo replanted. This is the int
est killing frost on record ot Columbi?
iu the last eighteen years the previou?
latest date having been April 10, IBWfc.
Incidentally it maybe Raid that ??e
temperature this morning was tht ?
third lowe?t in eighteen years, bot
that tho lower readings were noted ib><

side figure. Tho damage is, however*
quito heovy about Chorl?ston, although
