HEMPTLL AND SENATORSHIP.,
Boom in His Behialf Reported
Launched at Norfolk.
News and Courier.
Norfolk. Va., June 29.-Nothing
has proved of so much interest to the
South Carolinians at the Exposition
than the following 'story'' which
appeared under the headlines in the
Norfolk Landmark this morning: "At
a conference held yesterday morning
between three distinguished South
Carolinians a little politics was in
jEcted into the ceremonies of the day
to tie extent that a Senatorial boom
was launched for Major J. C. Hemp
hill. the editor of the Charleston
News and Courier. Those responsible
for the boom are Editor T. R. War
ing. of the Charleston Post; Mayor R.
G. Rhett, of Charleston, and Speaker
Richard S. Whaley, of the South Car
olina House of Representatives.
"Mr. Waring made the announce
ment. Ie said that it had been de
finlitely decided that the veteran edi
tor of The News and Courier should
be elected to succeed Senator Asbury
Latimer and that this desire was
practically a certainty; at least this
was the view taken at the conference
"The details were not gone into.
Mr. Wbaiey merely assured a repres
entative of the Landmark that Major
Hemphill would be honored with the
Senalorship when the next election
occurred and that Soigth Carolina Day
was the appointed time for the an
"Whei Mr. Waring had made this
announcement and his views had been
concurred in by Mayor Rhett and
Speaker Whaley, he was asked for
his impressions of the Exposition,
having resided in an Exposition. city.
Mr. Waring stated that this was un
questionably one of the most beauti
fuil shows ever presented, and declar
ed that the tone and character of the
buildings and layout generally were
exe.eptional. He said that the natur
al beauty of the surrounding country
served to harmornize with the Exposi
tion, making it illustrative of the Col
onial character which has been fol
lowed in the entire construetion.
''Mr. Waring declared that it was
-an especial pleasure for South Car
*olinians and particularly the people
of Charleston, since they remembered
the cordial visit made to the late
Charleston Exposition by former Gov
ernor Montague aind his staff at Vir
,,ginia Day during their fair.''
Col. Waring seemed to be duly im
pressed with the responsibility of his
position as custodian of the Senator
ial boom. It was reported a.t the Ex
position yesterday that Senator Till
man was here for South Carolina
Day, and as Major Hlemphill entered
the reviewing .stand he was greeted as
the Senior Senator, aind tried his
best to look the part until it was 'de
termined that he should be the junior
instead of the Senior Senator. He
then kept both eyes open. The Char
leston party left this evening for
home after having a very pleasant
time. Jas A. Hoyt.

London (England) Sketch.
The wife of Mr. John D. Rockefel
ler, the man who rose from a humble
station to be the richest man in the
world, with an income which probably
exceeds $15 a minute, has a very lit
tle-known personglity. Nevertheless,
it is abundantly clear that the great
multi-millionaire could never have at
tained to this unique financial posi
tion without her constant help and
sympathy. She certainly shares her
husband's simplicity of life and his
strong religious faith. It has been
said that Mr. Rpekefeller's house
hold expenditure does not exceed a
modest $10,000 a year, and it is
known that he was long accustomed
to teaeh .in a Sunday-school belong
ing to the Baptist communion.
Some time ago a curious experi
ence befell Mrs. Rockefeller, the oc
casion being an entertainment given
by the family to some 40 members of
young Mr. Rockefeller's Bible class.
The members of the millionaire's
family themselves prepared the meal
in the kitchen, the young host and
hostess carrying the dishes and Mrs.
Rockefeller herself handing around
the cups was heavy, but Mrs. Rocke
feller had no thought of giving in un
til all the guests were served. The
joke was thlat one of the guests grave
ly offered -her a tip-which, however,
she was not allowed to pocket, for it
was at once impounded for the
church collection! This is worthy to
be placed side by side with the story
that the Paris Matin, having made a
rough calculation of the value of Mr.
Rockefeller's time, solemnly offered
him a check for 5,000 frances in pay
ment for an interview of 15 minutes.
This so tickled the millionaire that he
granted the interview for nothing.

The News and Observer of Raleigh,
N. C., says:
"Two full-blooded Chickasaw In
diant girls, now at Sulphur, I. T., have N
v.irtten to the Agricultural -and Me
chanical College here asking Presi- W
dent Winston to aid them in securing G.
as husbands a couple of the college af
eadets. These girls are worth from an
$25,000 to $50,000 each and are well wi
edueate,. and their photographs show ao
them to be good-looking. They write pr
Dr. Winston that the educated Chick
asw 0iris have banded together for ca
the purpose of securiig white hus- ot
bands. and prefer students of agri- w,
tultural and mechanical colleges, who la
are educated in agriculture and me- St
-hanies. This tribe of Indians, next to w
the Osages, is the richest in the no
world. No doubt the girls can easily ju:
find suitors to their taste." an
These practically-minded girls have la,

Yuaranteed stake of $25,000 to $50,- TI

The Cotswold are a vigorous, heal- w9
thy breed, and their fleeces are con- tif
iderablv heavier than those of the at
Down breeds. For instance, a mature ol<
Cotswold will range in weight from
200 to 250 pounds, as compared with ar
L60 to 175 pounds for most of the ju
Down breeds. While the fleeces of
the Down breeds will weigh from sev- tr
m to nine pounds, the fleeces of the m<
Cotswold will run from 11 to 13 th
pounds. This breed does well in Can- fo
da and- some of .the Northern States,
but has never been anything like as ed
popular as the Down breeds. They M
eive their best results on rich pas- be
tures because of their heavy bodies, he
which do not allow them to be so ac- fe
tive as the Southdown and some of tit
the lighter, and finer-boned breeds. si4
f kept under shelter during the worst
part of the winter season they would
no doubt do very well in Virginia.
Their wool is so long, however, that Bh
when it becomes thoroughly soaked le:
by cold rains it is likely to chill the th
animals. On this account they have he
lever been as favorably regarded by on
heep growers in the Appalachian re-. ra:
ion as the Down breeds. A little cu

Variations in Corn Yiel4s.h
Prof. A. M. Soule in Southern Farm m<
WIagazine of Baltimore for June: tir
Two kinds of corn favorably known ek
in Virginia are Hickory King and to
Virginia Ensilage. Believing that
here is a material difference in the to
trains of corn bearing the same name, an
everal tests were made to study this
mportant question in 1906. Hickory ol
ing was obtained from four sources an
md Virginia Ensilage from three. It ga
is uite remai-kable that the yield of YC
:he whole crop per acre in tons should
ave been comparatively uniform, not
vari:g more than a half ton in the :
nost streme case. The yield of fod- at
icr was virtually the same, but the ho
ield of grain was not at all uniform, TIl
:here being a difference of more than pe
line bushels per acre between the best fo<
ad poorst strain of Hickory -King se
orn. With Virginia Ensilage the be
yield ranged from 51.87 to 69.65 bush
als, a difference of nearly 18 bushels he
ser aere. These differences could
?ardly be due to accident, as the sam- wI
les were grown on uniform ground in
ad received the same care and treat
nent in every respect. The selection gu
f the seed' and its care and manage- loa
rent in past years no doubt had an
influence, but the data here present-~
eI ar'e sufficient to show emphatical
ly that the strain of a standard var- tu
iety selected may materially influ- of
nce the yield obtained. This is a sh
point that cannot be emphasized too
strongly and should never be lost of
sight of by the practical grower. It is th
a condition clearly recognized by
stock breeders who understand that
ertain families within a given breed 10o
tire more prepotent, have the desir- he
able characteristics engrafted more in;
strongly and can transmit -them with
~treater certainty and uniformity to
their offspring. If this point were
more clearly recognized and the far- by
mer seeking for a variety would se- w<
ure strains from a number of sour- se
ces he would of.ten find one quite su- m;
perior to all the others, and by util- in
izing this one he could increase his
