TEA IN THE SOUTH.

Buffalo Evening News.
The Pinehurst gardens at Summe
ville in South Carolina have shovw
such success in the cultivation of t<
as to attract the attention of ti
country. The leader in this work
Major R. D. Trimble, a native of Ne
York state, who 'has been conductir
experiments in tea growing and h:
succeeded to a degree so remarkab
as to indicate a wond ,rful develo:
ment of tea growing in the southei
part of the United States.
For generations it has been su:
posed that tea could be grown on
in China and Japan, but of late yea
India has developed a large te
growing industry, and within 30 yea
Ceylon is very much engaged in
and now it is transferred also to tf
United States. In fact such chills
are in the winter air of South, Car

so that in luxuriant growth America
tea gardens are in advance of tl
average Asiatic garden, and nativ
of Japan who have visited Pinehur
have expressed their wonder at tf
splendid growth and production
the plants in that vicinity.
It is the handling of the tea cr<
that makes the different varieties ar
makes them more or less valuabl
The supposition that there are diffe
ent kinds of plants themselves fro
which the varying qualities are gat
ered is a mistake. It is in thze ear
and the later gatherings and in J
maturing of them that the high qu
ity, or inferior quality of tea is d
Imports are Immense.
The imports of tea in this count'
cost about fiteen million dollars
year. The expansion of the te
growing business in the south is:
rapid as to lead to the belief that t1
American market may be suppli,
with domestic tea before many yea
have passed-time being requir,
ch.iefly for ,the growth of the t
plant to bring it to bearing con<
tions as well as to educate those wvl
work in tea gardens to do so to ti
The treatment of the tea from ti
picking through the sortihg and 1
to tIe firing, as if is called, is far
iliar. This process is shown at Pin
hurst and is of very great interest.
A wide stretch of country is co
ered by this beautiful growth, and a
tei the American fashion the fiel
are adorned with flower bushes ai
foliage plants so that it is more li:
an exquisite private park than like:
It is recognized -that Pinehurst t
is of the very finest quality grow

brands of tea from the old world.
Government is Interested.
The department of Agriculture
the United States is taking the gre;
est interest in the development of t
growth and manufacture, and the a
it has given has been a very importa
factor in that work. This is on
one of the scores of instances
which Secretary Wilson, the head
ithat department, has shown himsi
to be conducting it on the broade
lines of intelligence and enterpri
and far sightedness. The trium
achieved under the leadership of S<

years have made a new record

NED MACK HANGED.
Negro In Manning Payc The Dea'.h
P -nalty For Murder-Said He
r- Was Prepared.
a Ned Mack. th-2 mulatto murderer,
e paid the death penalty in Manning on
s Friday at 11.21 o'clock, dying with
out a struggle, and the body was cut
down in 20 minutes and turned over
LS to his relatives, who hauled it home
e in a coffin.
S Sh:eriff Gamble read the death war
n rant to him in the jail before going
to the place of execution and after
~ reaching there did not impose the un
y pleasant duty upon others, but car
Sried out the details of the execution
-s Mack was calm and composed on
t, the scaffold and said he was prepared.
le He prayed for the officers and others
.s and warned everyb-dy against liquor
) and women. which he said was the
cause of his downfall.
n It is said that his motive for kill
e ing old Dave Connors, his wife's
s step-father, was because Connors
t had reported to Mack's wife some of
e his conduct proving that he was un
true to her. After shooting down
Connors in the road, Linton Butler,
' another negro, remonstrated with him
d whereupon he gave Butler a load of
e- shot in the arm and later in the day
r- fired at another negro.
n The murder occurred in December
last, and Mack was tried and con
y victed in February, being sentenced
e by Judge Klugh to hang on the 31st
a of March.
He was respited four weeks by the
governor pending an investigation of
sanity by a commission of five doc
y tors, who pronounced him sane.
a The negroes generally wanted the
- execution and the law has been car
o ried out decently an'd in order.

have to use the food at an
extra expense because it will
make you more money after
deducting its cost. One extra

entire cost of feeding it and
often more than doubles the

were anxious to meet Sherlock
Holmes, for they were sure that in
his new occupation they could give
him a good deal of assistance. An
amusing missive contained a careful
ly made proposal of marriage. This
was from a gentleman who wrote,
stating that his former housekeeper
was looking for a position. She had
had great experience with bees, and,
in fact, knew all about them, and he
would be very glad to recommend her
to Mr. Holmes if his address- was
supplied. The writer also hinted that
as Holmes was advancing in years
and -the housekeeper was a woman ol

possessing all the domestic virtues,
perhaps there might be still more
