COTTON CROP SMALLEST

Boll Weevil Damage Heaviest in
South Carolina and
Washington, Dec. 12.?This year's
cotton production is the smallest in
twenty years, excepting last season's
small crop, but based on December
first farm prices, it is the fourth most
valuable ever grown with an aggregate
of $1,134,608,356, not including
.the value of linter cotton and cotton j
seed which will total many millions
of dollars more.

Cotton Experts Gather

production of cotton is the South's
only financial, economic, social and
humane hope, according to the unanimous
opinion of experts in cotton
culture, who delivered addresses at a

Some of our farmers are producing j
butter and selling it at 30c per-pound.!
Why they will persist in doing this,1
I am unable to understand when the j
iNlewDerry creamery is paying -?j?. ,
per pound for butter fat. The cream
trill bring them at least 10c per;
pound more and the good wife will be '
relieved of the burdensome job of;
churning. The creamery does noti
get near enough cream to supply the
demand for butter, so let's everybody ;
puli together and sell their cream to !
the creamery and let the creamery j
sell the .butter. This will guarantee a '
market for all the .butter that you !
can produce. Don't wait till you get
more cows -but start with what you
have. If you only sell 5 or G pounds
a week that will bring you a small \
amount of cash that you are not get- j
ting at present.

the English market thus netting a !
nice profit to the growers.
Now is the time to plan your or-:

complete without its home orchard.!

extension'horticulturists. Mr. Kibler
.says that it cost him $15.00 to $20.00
.to do this work. He also says that he

peaches furnished Mr. Kibler with

summer when cash comes in mighty i
handy. And I expect that $250.00 is i
more money than some farmers get:
for thfclr whole cotton crop. . It wiil ;
not cost more than $15.00 to put an

Though those who were close to j
him realized that his condition was j
serious, the news of the death of I
Judge Frank B. Gary of Abbeville,'
which occurred in Charleston on!
Thursday afternoon, came as a dis- j
tinct shock to the people of the state, !
who realize the less which South .Car
olina has sustained.
Of a family whose achievements j
are writ large upon the brightest j
pages of the South's history, Judge j
Gary was true to the noble heritage '
which was his, and :o the traditions
which have made South Carolina i
greatest among the states of the Am-1

Judge Ernest Gary, he was one of |
three brothers adornnig the bench of j
South Carolina. Of the three, only :
Chief Justice Eugene B. Gary, of the
Supreme Court, survives.
Of marked legal ability, firm and '
conscientious in his rulings, ever [
seeking justice and the right as God ;

and a commanding physique and ap- i

great judges in a long line which j
South Carolina has -given to the j
cause of jurisprudence. ;
As a man Jmlge Gary was modest
and unassuming, and almost of a re- ,

lege to serrve directly under him in''
the courts for sonic time, Being re- j
appointed court stenographer by him j

pleasure and honor to have-' been intimately

capacity. He w^s always kindly and
considerate, and no matter how trying
the session of a tedious court
might be, every one connected with
its proceedings was always sure of j
that gentle courtesy from him which j.
was as unfailnig as the justice which j

WILSON TO QUIT
PRACTICE OF LAW
"Turning Energies Once More to i
Subjocts Which Have Long
New York, Dec. 12.?Bainbridge
Colby, secretary of state in President,
Wilson's cabinet, announced today
that his law partnership with the
former president would terminate
December 31, at the expiration of
their copartnership agreement. The !
announcement was made from the
local offices cf Wilson & Colby.
Beyond saying that the former'
president ''is turning his energies
once more to subjects which have!
long invited him," Mr.' Colby made no
1 j r itTM ? 1 :
statement as 10 Mr. vvnson s piaus
for the future.
It was announced that Mr. Colby :
would continue the practice of law in
"As a result of the steady gain in
Mr. Wilson's health during the last
few months," Mr. Colby said, "which
hn<? nopn sn p-rar.ifvinc to his friends.
he is turnnig his energies once more ,
to subjects that have long invited him i
and the importance of which can not
:e overestimated." i
Termination of the professional relationship
with Mr. Wiison was with
the keenest regret, he said, adding:
"Mr. Wilson's disciplined power
and effectiveness as a lawyer have
been a veritable'revelation, considering
the long interruption of his ac- i
tive work at the. bar. He has taken
a most active interest in the work of
+ Viti a rwl Vi i o cVinTun tV.n comp
fectiveness that he displayed in every
field into wh.rh he turned his energies.
"Our relations are of the most cordial
character imaginable, as they
have always been."
Washington, Dec. 12.?Bainbridge
Colby's announcement of the termination
of his law partnership with
Woodrow Wilson is no surprise to
Washington and' is regarded as an
added evidence that the former president
is .again turning his attention to
politics, ;paricularly the fortunes of
the Democratic party in 1924.
What'degree of leadership Mr.
Wilson siay expect to assume in his
party improbably known only to himself
at iiiis time and it is doubtful
o 7rm~. Tr.UT wliA ?i p."* r.llTYl hprpd
among Wis confidants can venture to
speak with any authority on the subject.
Since the whole question of the
former /president's political activities
depends largely upon the condition
of his health it may be said that his
physical condition is virtually the
same as it was a year ago and that
recent callers report his- mind as ac
tive as it ever was.
When he left the White House in
far worse physical condition than he
is today, it was Mr. Wilson's intention
to remain apart from politics.
But as the recent campaign drew
near he yielded to the sugg^tions of
those close about him and took some ,
part by wxy of writing letters which
were introduced into the campaign in
vrrious states . At the same time Mr. j
Wilson rene\ved his activity in inter- J
national affairs and began keeping j
himself closely advised on developments
in Europe. i
Various conjectures are advanced
in political circles as to how prominent
a part Mr. Wilson may take in
the campaign of 192-1. Ilis intentions
are undoubtedly known only to
himself although it is known that he
is bciiife urged to take a prominent
part and that his more favorcjle physical
condition is being urged upon
him as one reason why he should. The
fact that Mr. Wilson has been doing
a little better than holding his awn
physically, however, has led to exaggerated
reports that he has been
walking about the streets of Wash
- * .1 t v?_
ir.^ton unassisted and tna: nis uisauiiity
has almc-t entirely disappeared.
Although it can be stated that the
former president's physical condition
is better now than it was the day he
left the White House he stills finds it
necessary to place a limitaton upon
tno time he devotes to callers and
letter writing and devotes the greater
part of his time to rest and recreation.

to work, but he went to bed sick with
his note book well in hand; the items,
however, are out of date and we can

for the condemned man.
Mr. Evans said yesterday he would
appeal to the state supreme court and
have the case reviewed as to the refusal
of Judge Maul din to grant an
order directing that Harrison be ex- '
amined. This appeal is allowed by
law and will prevent the death sentence
from being inflicted, Mr. Evans
The attorney said he could appeal
on a number of grounds, from the
refusal to grant a writ of inquiry and
the nnai judgment.
Yesterday his client, Harrison, lay
upon his cot in the penitentiary hospital
seemingly lost to all actions
about him. When seen in the af> .noon
Harrison was absolutely st 1,
with the exception of regular breaching.
Attaches in the hospital and prisoners
said Harrison had not moved
during the day. However, it was said
by some that he had talked a little
since he was returned.
NO FEDERAL QUESTION
IN CASE OF JEFFORDS
Washington, Dec. 12.?All that remains
for Frank M. Jeffords to do is
to die. William H. Taft, chief justice
of the supreme court, declared
today that in the Jelfords case no federal
question was involved.
The chief justice took the case under
advisement Sunday afternoon following
an argument and a filing o? a
brief by Jeffords' attorney, Jesse B.
Adams of Washington.
Mr. Adams attempted to make the
point that Jeffords had not had a fair
and impartial trial in the sense that
the constitution of the United States
guarantees such a trial to all defend- I
ants. As previously reported Mr.
Adams had little hope of convincing
the chief justice that the supreme !
court should take cognizance of the
situation, bat made me attempt m u
