in 1907-'08.-This State's
New Orleans, La., Sept. 7.-Supple
menting his report on the cotton crop
for 1908-'09, as issued on August 31,,
Secretary Hester of the !T&w Orleans
cotton exchange. today made a detail
ed report on the crops of the different,
States as follows:
Alabama 1,428,000, against 1,171,
000 last year.
Arkansas, 1,052,000 against 787,000.
Florida 75,000 against 60,000.
Georgia, 2,118,000, against 1,964,
Louisiana 485,000, against 673,000.
Mississippi, 1,673,000, against 1,
North Carolina 747,000, against
South Carolina 1,298,000, againsti
Tennessee 426,000, against 335,000.'
Texas 3,819,000, against 2,221,000.
Oklahoma 704,000, against 950,000.
Total crop 13,825,000, against 11,
572,000 last year.
Eleven Milliom Spindles.
He puts the spindles in the South
at 11,255,787, ineluding old, idle and
not complete, against 10,661,308 last
year, an increase of 594,479.
Referring to the consumption by
American mills, Mr. Hester says that
North and South they have had a sea
son of unparalleled activity. In no past
y.ear, he states have they consumed so
mueh cotton, and phenomenal as the
extent of the business has been, it has
not reached the limit of their eapaci
dies. The money value of the past
commercial crop, he states, is in round
figures $"83,794,000, showing that
while the number of bales marketed
was 2,243,000 hales more than last
year, the increase in money received
was but $11,509,000, equivalent to
$5.11 per bale for the excess, and yet
Mr. Hester contends that considering
all eireumstances if ever a crop was
sold at a good round price it was the
one under review.
Consumption Increases Greatly.
In the South Mr. Hester makes the
consumption 366,596 more than last
year and 120,765 over the year before
iast. Twenty-one new mTi.s are build
ing in the Southern States, and in
eluding additions to old establish
ments, 10,000 new looms and 511,294
new spindles are uder way. The in
crease in the number of mills over last
year has been eight, making a total
'The year's -consumption has been
divided as follows:

Facts Speak for Themiselves.
In conclusion Mr IHy- *ays the
facts concerning this remark.ve year
2n cotton consumption -peoak for
ehemselves, but it is safe to-say that
had they been estimates instead of
olain unvarnished truths, even ex
tremists would have been justified in
elassing them as exaggerations.
In the South, he says, "We have
brushed 2,600.000 bales closely dur
ing the past year and ,this close on-the
heel of the panic, with 213 out of a
total of 786 active mills from one to
:.wo months late in getting under head
wav'. Most of t he new no.: conmplete
.mindles will be in wvorkinga order be
lOre the coming year's close and withi
these on the ,basis of the 1904-05, con
sumption per spindle, the capacity of
the Southern mills will be something
like 2,800.000 to 2,90'0,000 bales.''

How to Improve Our Orchard Indus
From our general observation in the
state during the past year, it would
seem .that South Carolina has been,
as it were. a dumping ground for all
kinds of inferior and worthless nurs
ery stock. By this we do not mean to
say that South Carolina -receives no
first class nursery stock, for we year
ly handle some of the best stock in
the whole conn1try. The general ten
deney on the part of some nurseries,
without the state, towards shipping
inferior stoek into t4he state has
caused considerable complaint to
reach this office. The principal trou
ble with such stock seems to be the
presence of serious insect pests and
plast diseases. It is a very difficult
matter for the casual observer ito de

The other morning an invoice clerk
turned up at his office even later than
usual. His employer, tired of waiting
for him. had ihimself gone about the
work. The enraged merchant laid his
pen aside very delibera.tely.
"Mr. Jones." he said sternly. "this
will not do!"
"No, sir," replied Jones. drawing
off his coat as he glanced over -his
employer's shoulder, "it will not.
