General Crop Conditions.
Girls Dancing in Trousers.
Following .is the report of the
general condition of crops in Ten
nessee for week ending Monday
.April 15, 1901:
The greater portion of the week
was cool and dry, and quite favora
ble for farm work, and farmers im
proved the opportunity by pushing
forward the work of planting corn,
and plowing and gardening; on the
12th and 13th good rains fell, which
hindered all outside work. Corn
planting had advanced rapidly and
favorably, and was nearing comple
tion in many sections. Some cotton
was planted under favorable condi
tions in the southern and western
counties. As a rule, planting and
other farm work was farther ad
vanced than usual at this period,
but germination was backward, ow
ing to the lack of much warm sun
shine on the soil. Wheat generally
was much improved, and beginning
to grow well, especially the later
sowings; the early sowings was se
riously affected by the fly, which
will shorten this portion of the gen
eral crop. Oats and the grasses are
growing well. Gardening progress
ed favorably, and the generous
rains will give quite an impetus to
the growth of vegetables.- Irish

Large areas are intended to be seed-
.ed to corn this season in many sec-1
tions. Light frosts occurred during
the early jart of the week, but it is
not thought that the early fruit is
injured to any extent, except possi
bly in a few localities.
The decline in the art of dancing
among men hag put the fair sex to
desperate straits for partners. The
awfnl fate of sitting against the
wall the whole evening is the lot of
many girls at social affairs, and few
and far between are they who have
their entire programmes filled.
In order to solve this delicate
problem the Kappa Iota Society has
smarted a new plan. On Saturday
it gave a dance in the home of the
Miss Beniamin, No, 4111 Grand
Boulevard. None but the fair sex
Half of these donned masculine

Birds at an Easter Service.
Bob Taylor Taken for W. S. Taylor.
Former Gov. K. L. Taylor, of
Tennessee, while in Knoxville a few
days ago, told this joke, at his own
expense partly and partly at the ex
pense of a Pennsylvania mountain
community: "I had been billed
several days to speak in a little town
which had only one railroad, and
which was in a mouutainous section.
I dreaded the place because I did
not expect a crowd. I reached the
town, and fully 1,000 people were
out to see me. A committee of the
most prominent men in the town
met me with a carriage and a brass
band. 'Yankee Doodle' was played
mauy times, but 4Dixie' was never
thought of.- The spokesman for
the party told me that he was glad
to welcome to the town a nian - who
had been so badly ; treated by the
Democrats, and who was entitled to
the office of Governor beyond all
doubt. I lis statements were ap

peace and waited... I was called up
on by men of all classes, who assur

one for his kindness m the matter.
I was told that I would have a hi

: Trinity Methodist Church, one of
the leading churches of' this city,
used as Easter choristers on Sunday
sixty canaries and 'fifty mocking
birds. The idea originated with
Miss liose White-Steighagen, the
organist. She suggested to the
pastor that it would be a novelty
if the birds could be made to
render the music. He agreed with
her and they set to work on last
Thursday to secure the birds.
They visited the various members
of the congregation and the bird
stores of the city, and asked for all
the birds they had canaries or
mocking birds they did not care
which, they said.
Many of the parishoners were
curious to kuow what they wanted
with the songsters, but no amount
of questioning was sufficient to
draw the secret either from the-
organist or preacher. "When the
congregation riled into church and
perceived cages depeudmg from the
roof they were surprised. The birds
themselves appeared to .be frighten
ed until the organ sounded. Then
they appeared to take on confidence.
And before the first few notes of
tLe prelude hard been rendered one
of the canaries burst into song.
Another took it up almost instantly,
and then another and another, until
all the birds were singing.
After that during the entire ser
vice, sermon and all, the birds kept
the church filled with music the
mocking birds, with their stronger
voices, doing particularly well.
Members of the church are now dis
cussing the advisability ot con
tiuuiii" the birds as a regular
feature. Atlanta telegram to the
