ZACH MGHEE PASSES AWAY.
Succumbs After Brave Battle Against
Washington, Feb. -23.-Mr. Zach Mc
Ohee, for the last five years the Wash
ington correspondent of the Columbia
State, and who has worked for other
papers since coming to Washington,I
died at his apartments at the Bruns
wick, tonight at 6.30 o'clock. With
]Lim at the time, were his two broth
ers, Sam and Rutledge McGhee, and
two sisters, Misses Helen and Mary
McGhee. The end came peacefully,
after a w,sting and weakening illness
that lasted for about six weeks.
Early in January Mr. McGhee was
attacked with stomach and blood
trouble and called in physicians. They
at once saw that he was in a bad con
dition. He grew worse, and in a short
time the ravages of aggravated anae
mia were apparent. Nothing that lov
ing attention could do could check the!
onward march of the disease, a4d lit
tIe by little he lost strength and vital
ity. A week ago hope was practically
abandoned, and the immediate fam
j1y gathered around Mr. McGhee's
He was a magazine contributor and
the author of one book, "The Dark
Corner," disclosing the life of the
backwoods people of .he South. He
was 39 years of age and was once as
sistant superintendent of education
for the State of South Carolina.
A committee has been selected from
the corps of Washington newspaper
oorrespondents to act as an honorary
escort, when the body is taken from
Lee's undertaking establishment to
morrow night, at 7.30 o'clock, to be
placed aboard the Seaboard Air Line
train for Greenlood. The train will
reach Greenwood at 12.30 o'clock Sat
urday and the funeral will probably
be held that afternoon, -'although the
exact hour has not been determined.
TO AID THE FARMERS.
For Betterment of Agricultural Con
ditions Southern Railway Operat
ing Educational Trains.
Washington, D. C., Feb. 25.-During
the week beginning Monday, March 6,
the Southern% Railway company, in
line with its policy of doing every
thing possible for *he betterment of
agricultural. conditions in the terri
tory traversed by its lines, will run
two special agricultural educational
trains. One of these trains will be
operated in cooperation with the Vir
ginia department of agriculture and
immigration and will spend the en
tire week on the Richmond division,
embracing the lines between Ricah
mond and Danville a'nd Richmond and
West Point. Meetings have been ar
ranged at 12 points at which the train
will stop. The other will be run over
the lines of the Southern railway and
the'Queen and Crescent Route in Ken
tuky in cooperation with the depart
*ment of agriculture and the college of
agriculture of that State. Twenty
four stops will be made by this train.
Each .of these trains will be in
charge of parties made up of men of1
scientific knowledge and practical ex
perience who will be able to give in
formation of the greatest value. Sub
jects will be arranged to meet the
most pressing needs of the different
sections visited. Bad weather will
flot be allowed to interfere with the
meetings- as all will be held in the
passenger coaches which the trains
The Southern railway in connection
with other lines is furnishing abso
lutely .free of charge a train with
which the State College of Agriculture
of Georgia is making a forty-seven,
day tour of that State. The great ex
,pense entailed by tne running -of
these trains is borne by the Southern
in the belief that its interests are
identical with those of the farmers of
' the South and that it will eventually
-.be repaid by the improvement in con
ditions 'that will result from an in-I
creasing adoption of better methods

left by the law in his discretion.

waiting his pleasure, and, if he laid
o business before it, adjourn; and so
n until the general assembly shotild

terms of its members. The pay of theI
