The yachting season of 1911 is
now in full hast; everyone who
* owns a pleasure craft whether it he
a 16-foot motoi boat or a 250-foot
ocean going ste; mer, is enjoying the
delights of beinj on the water. It is
the time of t) e year when the
year when the yatchman comes in
for his own anc enjoys the sport of
kings and ,the h mg of sports.
During the p .st few years, owing
to the perfectioi of the gasoline mo
tor, the sport o. yachting has grown
by leaps and b< unds. There are in
the United Stal >s nearly 600 yacht
and motor boat clubs*, with an aver
age inembers-hij of close to 200.
There is a wi le range in types and
sizes, ranging rom the big, grace
ful, square rigg ?ed Aloha, owned by
Commodore Jar es, of the New York
Yacht Club, an 1 magnificent steam
craft as large a the biggest coast
ing steamers tc 16-foot motor run
abouts. The i .tiling fleet, sloops,
schooners and yawls, number hun
dreds, while tl are are innumerable
craft of other r gs, such as cats, ket
ches, canoes, et:.
Yatchs of to lay may he divided
Into general cl sses, such as steam,
motor auxiliary and sail, but in the
latter class th< re is a gradual fall
ing off, the inst .lation of motors con
. verting them ii to the class above.
Interest in 'atching has always
been in races, islde from the inter
national event*, and ocean racing
has always be n popular. The an
nual events fr< m New York to Ber
muda for craft of less than 60 feet
water line are notable. The annual
race from Ca lifornia to Honolulu,
2,232 miles, h of much interest to
the Pacific yar. atsmen.
The intern tional contests be
tween the Unl' >d States and Canada,
sailed on the ( reat Lakes have done
their share ir the development of
the small yac t, while the Sonder
class events between this country
Germany, and Spain have been en
tertaining and productive of good
fellowship, to say the least. Every,
yacht club ho', is at least one regat
ta each year.
The history of steam yatching in
this country d tes back only to 1851
when the Cob nel John Stevens was
built at Phila ielphia by Capt. R. F.
Loper. She w as 92 feet long; but

honor of bein^ the first steam craft

and there we -e built crafts like W.
K. Vanderbib's Valiant that is 332
feet long am registers 1,823 tons.
Today there e re fifty or more yachts
of this type, ill of them capable of
making cruis* 5 around the world. In

The first motor boat to cross the At

hardship, but they were successful.

MARKET CROP SLOWLY.
The Amount of Cotton Made This
Mr. W. J. Wingate, of Melgs, Ga.f
writes the Atlanta Constitution as
"I don't see the warnings in the
newspapers to the farmers to hold
and market the crop slowly that I
commonly see at this season of the
year. Even the Farmers' union peo
ple are not hafing much to say on
this line. I would like very much to
see The Constitution and all other
leading nerspapers that are friendly
to the cotton producer, fire some
hot shot in that direction; for no
doubt there is one of the greatest ef
forts being made to get the present
crop for almost nothing that has
been made in a long time.
The bear crowd will succeed if the
newspapers and farmers don't put
up a ionig strong, hard fight for the
next sixty days, because, on account
of the early maturing variety'tHt,il
of the early dry spring, cotton matur

made, and this crop will only be u

Rain has been plentiful since
the latter part of June, and for the
past thirty days there has been too
much ht sunshine mied with the
rain. Today there are great fields
of cotton in this section with not a
green leaf on it If it had only con
tinued dry through the growing sea
season there would have befn ? fif
teen million bale crop.
This no ' doubt, will sound very
foolish to people who don't know
that it takes a hard dry year to pro
duce a heavy crop of cotton. Refei
hack to the year 1904, the dryest
year the cotton belt has ever known,
and you will see that we produced
the largest crop in our history. I
trust you will vigorously handle this

Mail Clerk Could Tell What Letters
Postoffiee inspectors say over 1000
letters, containing small sums of
money, 'have .been taken from the
?mails by Franklin B. Scott, a negro,
a night distributor at the post of
fice in Cleveland, 0. Scott had six
unopened letters in his pocket when
arrested, the officials say.
Scott was able to pick out letters
containing currency with astonish
ing accuracy. His finger tips were
abnormally sensitive and he had
trimmed his nails so that the nerves
were nearly exposed. It was his
slender, tapering fingers that led in
spectors to suspect Scott.
He pleaded guilty before United
States Commissioner Walther and
was held on $2,500 bond. Scott is
30 years old and has been In the pos

and an eight-year old son.
