Show to be Held in Columbia in De

Georgia is Cooperating.
The South Atlantic States Corn ex
position which is to be held in Colum
bia from December 5 to 8 is attract
ing attention all over the South.
A. D. Hudson, of Newberry, thE
president of the exposition, has jusi
returned from Georgia where he se
cured the cooperation of all of th(
papers of that State. Several Geor
gia papers will offer prizes at the ex
The following in the Atlanta Jour
nal several days ago, indorsing th(
corn exposition, will be of interest:
"With a view to improving th(
breed and increasing the productioi
of corn in the South Atlantic States
a great corn exposition will be helR
-at -Columbia, S. C., December 5-8. Th(
farmers of North and. South Carolina
georgia and Florida are invited t(
take part. The makers of farm im
plements and fertilizer are asked t(
lend their aid. A liberal and varief
prize list will be open to contest.
"This will be the first corn exposi
tion in the South's history and it wil
mark a long stride forward in th(
section's agricultural enterprise. A,
a stimulus to a diversified system o
farming, its influence will be particu.
larly strong and opportune. Cottoz
has heretofore been not only the kinj
but also the tyrant of Southern fields
While it deserves and will doubtles,
hold the preeminent place among oui
crops, it should not exclude attentioi
from other crops which are essentia:
to our prosperity and well being.
"The Southern farm should be, lik(
the farms of Europe, self-maintain
ing. Until recent years the farmei
of this section has found it necessar3
to spend the entire proceeds of hiE
cotton crop to buy supplies for thE
new year-such elemental supplies
as grain, meat and hay. This is plain
ly ;a wasteful and foolish system. II
will be discarded as soon -as a wide
spread and intelligent interest it
corn breeding is bestirred.
"To arouse- such an interest is thE
prime object of the South Atlantic
Corn exposition. The project is 'ai
once brilliant and useful. It is earn
\ estly to be hoped that Georgia will
be well represented at the exposi.
NEW TYPE OF CARS.
Gas-Electric Vehicle to be Introduc.
ed in This State--For Benefit
Atlanta, Ga., May 31.-The South
ei-n Railway company announces to
day that as a result of the success of
experiments with gas-electric cars,
two of which have been ordered, it
is probable that their use on the lines
of the Southern Railway company
will oe further extended.
A careful study has been made of
conditions on those parts of the line
where surburban business is heaviest
and in the more congested comnmer
cial districts where passenger travel
- is thickest, with a demand for more
frequent service. While no definite
conclusion has been reached, it may
be that the company will put gas
electr ic cars into service in some of
ther. localities, either substituting
them for the present local steam
trains or as supplementary to the
rpresent local steam service so as to
give more frequent service. One of
the localities where this service may
i zirst be put in operation is in the ac
tive manufacturing territory of South
Carolina, where the conditions would
- seem to suggest that such service
would most conveniently accommo
date the milling towns of Seneca, An-'
derson, Belton, Williamston, Pelzer.
Piedmont, Greenville and Spartan
The gas-electric car is substantial
ly built with steel frame. It is pro
pelled by electricity which is gener-,
ated in the car itself by a gasoline
generator. It can thus be operated
by itself on any railway track with
'out the inistallation of trolley wires
or third rails. The interior of the car
-can be arranged as to fit it for the
partieuilar service for which it is to
be used. In the cars that have been
ordered for the Southern railway
Elines,.the generating engine and elec
~tical machinery are in the forward
ndot the casr. Next thereto is the
compartment for colored passengers.
These two compartments occupy
about one half of the total length of
the car, the remainder of which is- a
compartment for white passengers,
with seats arranged as in a day
coach. The car is handsomely dec
orated and is lighted throughout by
electricity. It can be run at any
*speed up to 60 miles an hour. The
motive power is sufficient to enable
it to haul a trailer or extra coach
when the amount of travel to be ac
commodated is more than the car will
take care of.
Tt is considered to be one of the
most convenient and satisfactory'
methods for accommodating passeng
er service moving short distances and
under conditions where only strictly
passenger service is demanded.
The company is also looking into
another car of different make adapted
for the same character of service,
which is now in service elsewhere
under similar conditions.
HIS FINAL REPORT.
Japanese Officer Keeps Record of His
Death news from the bottom of the
self-humiliation seldom encountered:
even in naval circles, is recounted in
I a sea, showing a degree of heroism
and transmission published in the
London Times of a message written
by Lieut. Tsutoma Sakuma, who was
in command of the Japanese subma
rine No. 6, when it foundered last
week while maneuvering in Hiroshi
ma bay, all on board being lost.
In the message, which was found in!
the conning tower of the submarine
when it had been brought to the sur
face, Lieut. Sakuma explained that
he alone was to blame for the disaster
to the craft and the death of fellow
[:officers and men. He describes in de-'
tail the heroic and almost superhu-,
man efforts that he and the doomed:
men with him made to save the sub
marine and their own lives. The mes
sage was as follows:
"It is with the deepest regret that
I write this message to describe the
loss of this boat, with my fellow-of
ficers and men, due to my own fault.
I would here specially mention that
a'11 steps have been taken to raise
her, my comrades and men working
earnestly and calmly till the end. , I
ordered the ship to dive with the en
gine running, but, as I found she went
down too far, I tried to shut the
valves which admit the sea water to
the ballast tank, but unexpectedly the
chain working these valves broke,!
and I was left helpless, unable to con
trol the boat. .
"Meanwhile the tanks were filled
with water, and the boat went down
at an incline of about 25 degrees. Aft
er striking the bottom the water be
gan rushing in, the switch-board was
immersed in water, all electric lights
went out, the fuses buried away and
the boat was filled with poisonous
gasses, so that we experienced the
greatest difficulty in breathing. Un
der these conditions we worked our
very utmost with the hand pumps to
empty the main ballast tank, which, I
believe, we succeeded in doing, al
though we could not read the gauges
owing to darkness. No electric cur'
rent was available, as I mentioned.
1before, and our last hope of rising to
the surface lay in working the hand

ing from the conning tower--1.45 a.
"I earnestly beseech his majesty to
grant me forgiveness and to succor
the families of my comrades and men~
who have lost their lives in this per-'
ishing boat. This is my only wish-'

I can breathe, though I am sure we
must have blown out the gasoline en
