PELLAGRA AND HOOKWORM

for Making Donations to An
N,.w Orleans.-In an address be- all
fore the Southern Medical Associa- od
tion, Dr. John A. Witherspoon, of be
Nashville, chairman of the surgery
section, made a strong plea for the me
elimination of politics from the state th
medical boards. cu
"I earnestly urge," he said, "and ini
ask that the assertion go on record
as demanding that the laws of the th
states represent ed in the association II.
so that the physcians of the state mi
would feel free to suggest men for me
appointment on the state boards. V.
Politics must not be allowed to im- HI
peril human lives." in
Dr. Witherspoon also urged that Co
the young men of the South who de- ou
sire to study medicine should have
a better preparatory education. ot
One of the important subjects to as
come before the meeting was the dis
cussion of pellagra and its causes. w
The hookworm disease was also dis- m
cussed. It was the general opinion
that pellagra was not caused by eat- It
ing musty corn, but was the result st
of diseased nerve centers. to
IMPORTANT TO TEACHERS. tt
State Conductor Issues Letter of Im- cm
porance Regarding Institutes.
Baton Rouge.-The department of
education is preparing to make its
institute records -more complete, and C
the folowing letter has been sent
to the parish superintendents:
"I am sending herewith a new h
form of report for the monthly insti- .
tute meetings. You will note that 0
only one report is to be sent to the d
Department of Education annually, it
instead of monthly reports as here- ti
'ore. This change will make it more sl
certain that the department receives
all the statistics relating to the in- o
stitutes, and will, in a large measure, d
overcome the incomplete records of P
the past, due to oversight on the part
of the institute managers. You are 0
requested to keep your monthly re
ports carefully, and at the end of the P
year send in your institute report in n
accordance with the blank form sent fl
herewith. You will be expected to a
keep in touch with the different insti
.ute managers and see that they re- I1
port to you after each meeting. .
new system, I feel sure, will com
mend itself to you as being simple
'and effective. Since the monthly in
stitute work of the current year prom
ises to be the best in the history of
the state, the biennial report of the
state superintendent should record it.
Banker Shows That Changs in Crops ~
Insures Better Times.
Baton Rouge.-Setting forth in the
clearest possible way what has been
done this year by people of Natch
itoches, in spite of the weevil, a let
ter from 8. W. Hill, a large planter
of Natchitoches and a banker to C.
K. Smith, cashier of th People's Bank
of St. Francisville, West Feliclanaa
Parish, has attracted attention.
Two years ago it was thought that I
cotton farming in Natchitoches was 1
out of the question. In his letter on I
conditions to-day, Mr. Hill says: t
"Our plantations have been con
verted into hay fields, cattle and hog
pastures. Where before not enough(
corn was raised to make meal for 1
the place, to say nothing about the
feeding of stock, every barn and crib
is full and some being sold. Where I
before the farmer 'turned his stock ]
io his field and let them destroy and 1
trample down worlds of peas and
pumpkins, he is now gathering them
and pulling the vines for hay. Where
before he bought all his meat from
the packing house, you will find he
has a pasture full of fine stock, and
on Saturday, instead of issuing ra
tions of Chicago bacon, he is selling, 4
his negroes fresh meat at almost
half the cost of bacon.
"The banks went right along help
Sing our people, but we made them
diversify, thus enabling them to go
ahead, even if their cotton did fail.
Our lands went down wrere there
was absolutely no market for them,
and now they are back to their old
value very nearly-that is, river laud.
Of course, the idea of making cotton
on low, stiff lands, surounded by
woods will have to be abandoned.
You must have light, loamy or sandy
soil-something that will make your
cotton mature quickly.
"Our people have got their nerve
back and have gone to work, and,
with any sort of favorable season,
we will never have any more crop
failures in this section. You have to
go through it all to appreciate the
change, and when other sections fol
low suit by adopting the diversity of
crops plan they will be better off."

Baton Rouge.-A meeting of the BE
parish agents of the United States

In this city, presided over by State Pa
Agent James A. Evans.
Reports from all the agents show
ed that the work was progressing in
all the parishes, and that the meth
ods advocated by the government are
being adopted in general. of
The fight on the boll weevil has 110r
met with great success in some of ref
the parishes, while better methods of ing
culture by intensive practice are be- me
ing used by a great many planters.
In an address Mr. Evans outlined 00(
the work for the coming year. Hon. Isl

Cairo, Il.--Will James, the negro sus- 0
pected of. being the murderer of Miss a
a Annie Pellet',-was lynched here Thursday
f night by a mob. , James was strung up 2
to the public arch, the rope broke, and '
at least 500 shots were poured into his t
o body. He made a partial confession. ` p
James was lynched in the most prom- k
inent square of the city and hung to the
arch at Eighth and Commercial streets. p
Women present were told to pull the c
rope. When it broke, the frenzy of the I
s mob was uncontrollable, and they fired (
volley after volley into his body, shoot- c
1 ing him to pieces. The mob then dragged
s the body over the streets for more than I
a a mile to Twenty-sixth and Elm streets
P in an alley, and burned it.
S The body was burned at the spot
where the crime was committed while
a crowd of 10,000 people looked on and

COTTON AGAIN AT 15 CENTS
Receipts at All Towns Show a 1
Falling Off. I
Memphis, Tenn.-The- cotton market a
has practically completed the process of t
re-establishing itself upon the basis that I
prevailed before the late break. Mid- t
dling in Memphis is quoted again at 15 c
cents, while March cotton in New York
e sold at 15.10, and January 14.98. From
I these top levels there was a recession of I
y 15 points, but net gains for Wednesday t
I- were 20 points on active options.
Throughout the tone was steady and s
the suddenness of the recovery seemed
in no way to militate against its main
tenance or stability. This was highly re- I
assuring to the entire trade, and barring
I reactions of more or less consequence, i
which may be expected from the 15-cent
e level, it is felt that the way is again i
a clear and that the market will sell much 1
d higher than before.
From the figures in hand it would 1
t- seem that the falling off in receipts this
it week will he impressive when the totals
n are in Friday night, arid such decrease
,r as may be shown is believed to be but
n the beginning of the process which will

in comparing them with the lieutenants of
