The colored men seem to be deeply
chagrined at the position In whli
they have been placed and indicate
their full determination to sitt the
matter to the bottom and reveal the
real culprit. The following state

papers of this State. In view of this
fat his stand in regard to cotton

asked to speak on this sunjact at
diffrent times, and did so recently
at the Tirzah campaign meeting. In
a letter to a Rock Hill paper he says:

Bt ever since her arrest upon her
own confession she has steadfastly de
nied oaring for any man except the
one she declares she shot If she is
shielding the real murderer, she car
tainly is doing it thoroughly.
There is no doubt that, whatever
her own part in the tragedy, Emma
Stephany knows all about the murder
of James Fr~zzell.
Early. in the day of July 4, this
year, the body of this young man was
found in a Pottaville street, shot
arough the heart. Before the body
was removed a crowd g athered about
it. One of these curious persons wae
Enia Stephany. She leaned over
the prostrate form, shaken, agitated
"Do you recognize him?" a police
man asked her.
"I do not know this man," she sob
bed, and walked away.
When the identity of the dead man
was revealed to the polie- that he
had lately been the accepted lover of
B ma Stephany-they immediately
went to the girl's home and question
ed her. The result showed her to be
et-hr a murderess or a woman phe
nominally gifted with powers of sub
tle reasoning exerted with some mys
tericus otj tct in view.
She sat In silence while her thor
oughly alarmed mother declared that
her daughter had retired at her usual
hour-which was early-and had not
left her room during all the night 01
the murder. The elder woman wept,
"He was such a fine young man
I am sure he would have made a good
hubad for my daughter."
"When you looked~ at the body 10
the street, why did you say that you
did not recognia it?" demanded one
of the policemen of the girl.
"I uas frightened," she murmured.
The policeman looked at her sharp
ly, setting a trap.
"Who Is this other man you hay'
been keeping company with lately."
The shaft went straight home.
"It is false," said the girl, turnini
pale. "I1 have been keeping compan:
with no other man."
Te police were really nonplussed
They started to leave the house
SStrangely enough, this seemed ti
alarm the girl more than ever. The:

that there had been rival lovers, sa

SHIELDIG THE REAL SLAAER
The policemen were dumbfounded
Toe poor mother fell on her daughit
sr's neck, half fainti-ng
"How did you do it?" demanded
"I shot him with his own revolver,"
she said. "It was an ac Ident. Tak<
ms with vol.; I will explain later."
The cifizors had no alternative.
Tbey had to carry the girl cff to jAI
charged by her own confession with
having killed her lover.
But she m ds no further explana
tion except to declere that she ba:
thrown the revolver "cvar the fence."
She became the Spbbl x of the Patts
ville jal, whose pale face still gives nc
ins wer to those who try to read it.
In jail the girl's cunning in her of
"orts to shield the real murderer-ac
cirding to the. acer~pted po.ice t'ieorl
grew sharper. X aowing that any let
ter she wrote would be opened and
.ead by the authorities, she penned
and addressed to -er mother a cwn
tession that she really ad killed F-'s

This was not very good logic, but it

letter was never delivered to th;
nother. The polce searched the
girl's room-and found no revolver of
Taey also saarched the vicinity of
he murder, where there was a board
reves inclosing a vacant lot. They
searched every inch of ground beyond
the fence, but found no revolvar.
At length they learned on good
uthority that Fr'zzell. a most peace
bly inclined you..g man, had never
aarried a revolver.
All these circumstanc.?s strengthen
ad the growing theory in the minds ci
aolice and detectives that the girl was
nnocent of all except knowledge of

But here they lost the trail, which
they not yet been able to recover.
They were unble to find any one who
had seen or heard of E.nma Stephany
in .company with any man except
James Fr'zz 11.
They had to work upon only the
framework of a mysterious romance
dealing wish a strange man, living,
perhaps, in a neigbhoring city, who
,casionally met Emma Si-eph?-n;
secretly; that it was him she really
loved; aat she stil "kept company"
with James Frizz 11 for the sake of ap
pearances and to satisfy her parents,
who wished her to marry him; that on
the night of the tragedy, not expect

walked out %ith Fr;zell; that the
tranger, finding them together, flew
into a rage, shot his rival dead and

loved by tbis strange girl, It is nat

would be to save the slayer. T' csl

Therefore Fr azall's body was lef t

CAUSES GREAT LOSS TO THE
"airy Cattle Not 90 ,.dly i ffcted
But There is Mach Toss
There. Pome Facts.
Government experts recently sent
out to investigate the ravages of cat
tle tick report that below the quaran

000 cattle, the total farm value of
-Thich Is given by the last censua as
nearly $18s 000 000. The dairy eat.
Qla are credited with a value of about
$58.650 000 a- d the otber cattle wit
over $124 0%0 000 From observation
and experience it is estimated that z
shrinkage in value of 20 per cent ir
cattle other than dairy cattle is du#
directly to the eff cts of the tick. I
round numbers this would mean a los:
of $25,030 000 for beef cattle.
The dairy cattle being better carer'
for and to a larga rxteat confined Ir
Ints wh-ere the tick do nor fli)rish o

pecVily in the c-un'ry, brcnuse of the
-xtra "'ed rqu:rcd and the s'arirk
qge in the I . of milk caused by tier
infestion. I Is b ived 'hab an esti
nate of five per cent of the total v-1
ae of the dairy cattle Is not ovar
-:barging the tick. T :Is mteans an an
.nal loss of neariT 43 000 000 for dairy
oattle. The total depreciation o'
.outhern cattle on acmount of the tick
would be 828 000 000.
The loss from exposure In the south
ern states is partially due to the ne
glgence of the pecple in regard t
their cattle. Seldom is any vrov sian
wade for shelter or any additiona
reed. The rx3mssive loss from expo
snre and disease in the tick-Infested
states must be ascribed to the tick
TZue loss in the states with the most
equable climates is greatest becauar
tick actively is greatest there and th,
ck season is the longer.
The total number of cattle that
died in the tick-infested district dur
ing the year ending Marca 31, 19i5
was about 1,250,003, death being du.
largely to exposure. This loss coast
tubes nearly 50 per cent of the total
loss suffered by the wiol c.ntrt.
and yet the tick-infested states con
tain barely 25 per cenz of the c)untT:
cattle. The average value of the.
southern cattle, both milk and beaf
breeds, may be put at $12, according
to the bureau of statst3ios; therefore
;e total annual loss from death ID
the tick-infested slates amounted to
$15,000,000. The average death rate
in quarantined states being nearly
three times as great as that In the
tick free states, it is not unfair to as
sume that two thirds of this loss by
death is directly attributable to the
tick, that is, 10,000,000.
The average value of southern cot
ble is $7 below that of northern cattle.
n the state of Arkansas beef cattl.
are given a farm value of $7 50 per
head. The cattle of Iowa are value.;
at *19.42-almost tbree times ab
much. If 12,000,000 cattle of better
blood could take the place of 12,000,
00 scrups, the valuati m of southern
cattle wculd be a'on?. 884.000,000 more
than it is today. Tne santhern state8

Ouae of the gr~ atest benfi s that
would follow tue eradication or the
sttle tick would be the increased
fertility of the soil that would rtsult
from a great cattrle industryin tle

mere than is received for It from
abroad, it could be fed to cattle, and
thus would be kept at home the enor
inous amount of fertilizer of which
the farms are now robbed, besides se
curing the $10,000,000 extra value for
the finished product. The fertilizer
saved to tbe lands of the south would
represent $10,000,000 in direct value.
It Is believei that, all told, the
south loses annually between *100,
000,000 and $200,000,000 through the
ravags of the iisk.

Cotton Growers Advised Not to Seli M
Uader That Price. bi
A dispatch from Hot Springs, Ark., ce
says the executive committee of the
Southern Cotton Assoc!ation late thi pt
afternoon recomme.ded to its mem- et
ers and cotton growers of the South W
,at no cAton be sold during 'he pres w]
ont season a less than 10 ornts per ed
pound. In a resolution adopted by the cij
ommittee It Is sta'ed that the
crop is in a state of deterioration, and ex
l'or that reasonrio estimate of the crop 00
was made. The iesolution states, how- va
ver, that thle committee is tatisfied E(
that the crop will not be as large asb
he current estimate. The placing of in
the minimum price at ten cents was of
a the nature of a victory for the con
erative lement of the association. ey
The~ resolution adopted by the comn- tj
nittee, which is in the shape of an~ a
address to -he public, follows:
"ILnasmuch as we, the cotton grow- d4
rs of th3e South, know there has been
great deterioration in the cotton cro. : a
since August 15, and, o
"Wnereas the consensus of opinion
of the members of this committee is h.
that the deterioration is still going OU, A
we deem it unwise to make an esti- e
mate of the crop at this time. We are is
ati- fisd the crop will not be as large at
as the cur-ent estimate. . ti
"We, therefore, suggest and nrge ti
upon all our membats and producers e,
throughout the South not to sell their a
cotton at a figure less than the cost e
- "We call upon all Southern Inter- tc
ets to aid In maintaining for all time at
this price as a minimum. We urge pa
the necessity of marketing the crop
slowly and only on an advancing q
market, ar d withdraw allocotton from gi
the market at every dcloine."
The committee took up thle charges
against Secretary B'chard Oheatham,
of dealing in futures while an officer H
of the Association. After a spirited g
debate, in which J. A. Brown, of -r
North Carolins, led the opp'sitlon, o
the committee decided to go into exe-i
cutive sessions to consider the charg- b
e. The committesex ci )erated Cheat y,
-lfam. Mr. Brawn then left the room c
in which the committee were meeting cl
ad announced that he had refused tob
st in executive session on the matter. y
Mr. Brown has maintained through
out the sessions that they should be r
open and not executive.
