THE NIHGTS TOO COOL.
Cotton Developing Slowly, Hut Other
Crops DoiiiR Well.
The following weather and crop bul
letin was issued Monday by Section
Director Bauer Monday:
The week ending 8 a. m. Mouday,
July 20th. had a mean temperature of
70 degrees, which is about '2 "degrees
below normal. During the middle of
the week the nights were too cool for
thc best development and growth of
cotton, but no other crop was appar
ently??dverscly affected, and thc last
three days again had more seasonable
temperature. There was considera
ble cloudiness, and the air was humid
early In the week, but the last half
was sunny, with very low relative hu
midity and fresh to brisk, drying
winds during the daytime.
On the 13th there was rain over the
whole state, heavy In places, and it
was generally beneficial, though not
needed in thc east central counties,
where low lands are still too wet to
cultivate, and are grassy, and where
some corn and cotton have been de
stroyed by thc wetness, or will bc
abandoned owing to their foul condi
tion and the impracticability of clean
ing them. There is need of more rain
in the north central counties, where
com and cotton arc beginning to suf
fer, but over the rest of the state
there is plenty nf moisture for the
continued rapid growth of all crops.
The rainfall averaged 1.14 indies, and
in places exceeded i indies.
. There was a general improvement
in crop conditions during thc week,
very slight in the east central and
north central counties, and on sandi
lands generally, but marked in the
west central and western ones, and
about normal in thc Pee Dee sections.
The improvement is confined to fields
and crops that have been properly cul
tivated. Laying by made rapid
progress, but is much later than usual
with indications that many fields will
be laid by in a grassy conditmn.
Early corn is made in the eastern
counties,-.and, is generally well earned,
and being laid by In other sections.
' Young corn has good color and looks
The cool night checked thc other
wise rapid growtn of cutton somewhat
and caused lice to re-appear in places,
but generally the crop is improved
and is in bloom over Hie whole state,
but looks yellow, is small, and is not
fruiting well and shedding some on
. sandy lands. Thc east central coun
ties show.least improvement. Many
fields will not be in full bloom until
about August 1st. Some cotton lias
been laid by, and most of it has been
rid of grass, while much is still grassy
and will be laid by in that condition.
Sea island cotton is doing well.
Tobacco curing continues, and the
crop ls about half gathered. Rice ls
shooting and heading although about
two weeks late. Peas and sweet po
tatoes arc doing well. Fruit is vari
able, but much rotting of peaches is
still complained ot. Thc general con
dition of minor crops is good. Fall
truck planting continues.
SOME PLAIN TALK.
Thc Governor Denounce*) Hie Itecent
Killin f.; in Aiken County.
Gov. Hey ward, on his return from a
visit to Lexington, Va., denounced
the recent terrible crime at Ratesburg,
and offered a heavy reward, for the
perpetrators. lie said Wednesday
morning: "The recent killing ol' Den
nis Head by a mob in Aiken county is
the climax of a spirit of lawlessness
which means danger and disgrace to
the State of South Carolina.

invoked and I shall clo my utmost to
see that the law is vindicated.
"In order to further this to thc

"1 regret to say that though 1 have

Very few people there are who aro
familiar with tho date on which falls
the anniversary ot the battle of Bull
Run, says tho Washington Post,
j The date is remembered by and
known to more, people and comes
nearer being celebrated in Washing
ton and the Districtbf Columbia than
in any other quarter of the United
The first battle ot Bull Run was
fought on July 28, 1801, and when
that day arrives during thc present
month it will see large numbors of old
veterans, ladies and gentlemen of the
older generation and not a few of thc
younger, celebrating in their own
quiet way, this, one of thc .list of un
ollicial holidays. This statement may
bc a surprise to many, and cause some
people to inquire why, in view of the
fact that Bull Run was "a Union de
feat aud a Confederate stampede," as
one -writer put lt, the remerabrauoc of
that event has been cherished by
Washingtonians until the anniversary
of the tight has become a sort of half
way, unrecognized, unlegalized holi
day. This, perhaps, ls best auswered
by a venerable gentleman, now fast
approaching his 80th year, who for
n.any years has been connected with
the Array and Navy Medical Museum.
THU BULL RUN ANNI VKRSA BY.
"Perhaps it is a little hard for out
siders and newcomers to understand
why wc Washingtonians set such store
by tho anniversary of the battle of
Bull Run, but to me the reasons are
clear enough. Now that the civil
war and its long train of attendant
evils are past and gone I dare say it
would be utterly iiupossible-for any
one t<i imagine or to form a correct
idea of the altogether vague, mistaken
and even frivolous view that people
North and South took of the war at
thc beginning of the struggle. You
sec the country had enjoyed a long
era of peace. From 181f> down to
1801, almost a half century, there
had been war worthy of the name.
Of course there was the Mexican war
and thc various Indian outbreaks, but
these were left largely to the regular
army to settle and did not affect nor
convulse thc country as a whole. All
over the United States the people had
settled into a rut. from which nothing
snort of a terrible war could have
moved them and had matters gone on
in this way for another half century
wc would have been a nation more
backward than thc Boers of South
"Therefore when thc civil war came
on both sides went about thc matter
in a lazy, perfunctory, dilatory sort of
way, as though one noisy and blood
less battle would settle the dispute
forever and a day. This appears all
the inure amusing to me now, as 1 look
back over the vista of years and think
how, early in .July, 1801, we Washing
tonians got word that a battle was
soou to be fought out at Bull Run.
Our half century of. peace had onderr
cd bloody spectacles a decided novel
ty and I can remember, ns the day
drew near, how thc city was all a-bus
tle and agog over what many looked
forward to as the greatest sight of
their lives. Had any of Napoleon's
veterans dropped into the city a few
days before Bull Run he would never
have guessed that a battle was im
minent, lt was more Uko a city get
ting ready for a llower carnival, an
exposition opening, or a grand holiday
of some sort. Department clerks were
bustling about, beseeching leaves of
absence in order to take their wives
and sweethearts out to "see the light,
nor were they obliged to beg very
hard, for their superiors were quite
as anxious tis their subordinates to
gape at thc battle which was to settle
forever the. question of secession, etc.
THOUGHT IT A J'ICN'IC,
"When the day came and the boom
ing of cannon resounding over the
hills told us that thc struggle was on
in earnest I venture to say you
couldn't have hired a horse and rig
for S10 an hour. I happened to be
one of the spectators and so I know
whereof I speak, I also obtained a
leave of absence, or, hither, I took it,
inasmuch as the department in which
I was employed was deserted and,
joining a friend who had a horse and
buggy, we followed the throng out to
where thc lighting was In progress.
On reaching thc battletlcld we joined
a large crowd of sight-seers posted on
a little hillock in the rear of a body of
infantry, which, by the way, had one
cannou that was tiring, in a sort of
desultory way, at tho enemy, whose
battery was situated on an opposite
rise beyond an intervening hollow, or
gully. The latter were bombarding
thc Federal infantry ata pretty lively
rate and, as it seemed to me at thc
time, were using move solid cannon
balls than shells. Many of these
passed over the infantry, fell and re
bounded near the spectators on thc
hillock in the rear. Instead of frigh
tening any of us, from the very out
set wc lost all sense of fear. The
big, solid cannon balls from thc Con
federate battery were not at all ter
rifying. Tliey seemed to howl over to
our side, like so many base balls and,
although moving at a very rapid rate,
they created just thc opposite impres
sion, so much so, in fact, that there
was a great deal of useless dodging,
which was at times quite amusing.
Street arabs were on hand and when
ever a cannon ball struck there was a
general scramble of small boys, men
and women to gain possession of the
ball fora souvenir. One rather haugh
ty lady, who felt it beneath her digni
ty to join iii any such compet ition,
purchased a cannon ball from a
twelve-year-old youngster for $1;
Others did thc same.
"My companion soon gol, tired of
thespeetae'e ?ind returned to his horse
and carriage, which were left tied in
thc rear. Ile was afraid that, In thc
excitement, someone might steal it,
hut I was anxious to secure a cannon
ball and he consented to wait for mc
until I had secured one, provided it
did not take too long. 1 ran after
several, but missed them. Finally,
after two or, three disheartening at
tempts, the rebels fired one shot that
played havoc among the Infantry in
front of us, carrying off the heads of
two men whom 1 myself saw fall and
scattering thc r-pectators right and
left. 1 calculated about thc spot

"I had no more than reached my
friend before both be and 1 became
aware that something extraordinary
was In progress. As 1 climbed In the
buggy I noticed several artillerymen
ride past at a dead gallop, with their
harness- traces cut, I had read of Na
poleon's retreat from Moscow and of
other retrogrado movements, but it
was Eomo time before I could get lt
through ray head that a retreat was
in progress. "When I left the hill the
battle seemed to bo raging lu a man
ner which, to a civilllan like myself,
seemed quite ideal and proper, and I
could not understand thc meaning of
these artillerymen, who were now Hy
ing past in rapidly Increasing numbers.
I looked at my companion and he at
me and then we asked each other: 'Is
this a retreat?'
"We drove leisurely along at tlrst,
a trlllle alarmed, and slowly Increasing
our speed as the meaning of the thing
begau to dawn upon our minds. We
tried to stop several artillerymen, so
as to inquire of them whether this
was a retreat, who had ordered lt, etc.,
but none of them would remain long
enough to give a reply. Presently
the*road became so choked with Hy
ing cannoneers and cavalrymen, bug
gies and civilians on horseback that
we' were in danger of being overturn
ed. Horsemen were bumping into us
and I could sec men l.hrowing away
guns and knapsacks. My companion
had his buggy wblp out ready to whip
up his hors? into a gallop, when some
one in the rear yelled: 'Hun for your
lives: the enemy's cavalry arc upon
us.' 'That settles it,' muttered my
companion between his teeth and the
way our horse got up and fairly dust
ed, under the stimulus of my com
panion's whip, was a sight. We
passed, everything on the road and
landed in Washington safe and sound,
although our poor animal was nearly
"Thc next two days were days of
sorrow, fear and trembling for tile
people of this city. Everyone expected
thc Confederates to advance upon,
storm and take the city Immediately
and it was then, for thc lirst time,
that we began to realize that the war
was a far more serious proposition, as
the boys say nowadays, than wc liad
at lirst imagined. When days passed
and tiley did nothing of the sort, and
the Federal troops began to retrieve
their losses, we were indeed happy and
thankful, lt was this thankfulness
over our unexpected good fortune and
deliverance that lias lcd Washington
people to remember the day with feel
ings altin to thanksgiving for our
'streak of luck' in not falling into the
hands of the rebels.!'
On thc J 5i i ri ic ri H ii? l.
The Chicago Tribune, a Republican
naper, while contending that no evi
d ince has yet been produced that Per
ry S. Heath "has committed any crim
nxl act," admits that that "it is suf
ticiently established that he ran con
stantly on the bordeiland of out
lawry." And the Tribune says:
"The irregularities In the post?nico
department under his administration
were constant and deliberate. He
knew all about them. He sanctioned
them, lie Instigated them. He
wished to violate the civil service rules
by making appointments in an irreg
ular and unlawful manner, and lu/ did
it. Ile behaved as a representative of
the lowest type of political dpoilsman.
This is not the worst about Mr. Perry
Heath. His tenure of olllce in the
postolllce department was marked by
scandalous conduct from beginning to
end. More than any other olllcial iu
Washington he seems to be responsi
ble for the fraiids in the Cuban postal
service." This being true, why should
Mr. Roosevelt hesitate to direct thc
arrest and prosecution of the secretary
of the republican national committee?
Can it be possible that the i Roosevelt
administration intends to contine its
proceedings against small politicians
who were without important inllu'
once? lt would, to bc sure, bc unfair
to convict Mr. Heath on thc charges
preferred against him without, fulrand
thorough investigation, but if half
that has been charged is true, Mr.
Heath should be proceeded against
just as would be done In the case of an
unlniluentlal man against whom seri
ous accusations were made.
A Month ol' Disaster:
Thc month of June just passed was
a month of extraordinary and alarm
ing violences, and these violences have
not been confined to abnormalities in
the record ol' the weather man. They
have been of a more shocking kind
than the little unusual high and low
records of temperature. Honors,
which have gone to tho very heart of
the world, marked June says.the New
Orleans Times and Democrat. Leafy,
quiet June has been bloody, rioting
June, and thc furies seem to have
been unchained all the while. Prob
ably April suggested the wake of
bloody things with the Kishenelf
horror. Hut, no matter, June has
made a record quite"bloody enough to
to stand alone. It is a singular fact
that the lirst day of the month was
marked hy a fearful catastrophe at
Topeka, Ka.-;., when 2f>0 lives were
lost, 20,000 persons left without homes

thc South Carolina storm of June (5,
150 lives were lost, 500 persons left
without homes. 4,000 persons left
without employment and property
valued at $2,000,000 destroyed. The
I isas ter, caused by Hood, at Hast St.

that 2"),000 persons were homelees,. a
number of lives lost, over $:t,000,000

Against the Law to Kill liutlhnts.
The secretary ol* the Audobon so
ciety, of "North Carolina, T. Gilbert
Pearson, has issued the following
statement. According to a recent act
of tue Legislature, generally known
as thc'Audobon bill, the song and in
sect eating birds of the State, to
gether with their nests, are now pro
tected from destruction by the law.
One of thc most valuable birds in
"North Carolina is the night hawk,
usually known as the '''bullbat." This
bird feeds exclusively, upon insects,
eating large quantities of Hies, gnats
and grasshoppers, which are so trouble
some to man, bub perhaps ho fenders
us no greater service thar/ ^?itiing.
mosquitoes, Sl?ce^it'hT^?ow "known
that the malady known as -malaria ls
carried by mosquitoesand transmitted
by'their bite there certaiuly is strong
reason why thc bullbat should be ac
corded the. protection which lie so
readily deserves. It has long been
the custom in many sections of North
Carolina to shoot these birds in great
numbers in the late summer after
noons. Numerous cases have been re
ported to me and 1 have seen the
same with my own eyes, where these
birds were shot down by the dozen
merely for the practice of shooting
and the sport of seeing them fall.
Some sporters. do not ever go to pick
them up, and 1 have seen wounded
bullbats lying about on the ground
late the next day after they were shot.
Thc Audobon society uf North Caro
lina appeals to the good people of thc
State to use their influence in every
way possible in behalf of the bullbat,
and to see to it that the dreadful
sufferings caused by the thoughtless
slaughter pf these birds io the past
shall not bc reported in the State this
I> nnccrti ot' Liynch l?uv.
In thc words of Webster, "Massa
chusetts-there she stands,'' raising
a mob to lynch a white man who
threw a beer glass at another and cut
otl his nose! With this incident we
may fairly consider that the lynching
craze lias reached its limit. When it.
spreads from Texas to Massachusetts,
from negroes as objects to white men,
and from crimes against women T,o
throwing beerglasses as provocations,
what more is there to be said? The
troops have just been ordered out in
Georgia to protect a white prisoner in
a jail. All this is encouraging, tor
when mohs begin chasing white men
nobody is safe and everybody is

[threatens to upset all the safeguards
Df personal security that have been
the birthrightof the English-speaking
people since centuries before Magna
Charta. And when its full meaning
is once thoroughly understood a way
will bc found to stop it. The above
from thc New York World should
jausc us to stop and consider tho
hinger of lynch law. Once it becomes
rampant no man's life is safe.

Camp lampblack will ignite from
thc sun's says. The same can bc said
of cotton waste moist with lard or |
other animal oil. Lampblack and a
little oil or water, will under certain
conditions ignite spontaneously.
Nitric acid and charcoal create spon-1
taneous combustion. New printers'
ink on paper when in contact with a
steam pipe will Ignite quickly. Boiled
linseed oil and turpentine in equal
parts on cotton waste will ignite in a
few hours under a mild beat and will
in time create enough heat to ignite |
spontaneously, says Cassicr's Maga
zine. Bituminous coal should not |
be stored where it will come in con
tact with wood partitions or columns
or against warm boiler settings or I
steam pipes: This coal should not be'
very deep if it is to be kept on storage
for a long period. If piled in the
basculement of. a building it should
he shallow and Tree from moisture and
under good ventilation. Thar, liable
to absorb moisture should bc burned
first. If on lire a small quantity of
water showered on this kind of coal
cokes lt and retards any great supply
of water reaching the tire, thus
necessitating thc overhauling of the
pile. Iron chips, tilings or turnings
should not be stored in a shop in
wooden boxes. The oily waste which
is not infrequently thrown -among
them adds to the danger of tire from
this source. Thc sweepings from the.
machine shop, if kept on band, should
never be placed over iron shavings.
This mass of disintegrated iron is
enough to incite heat and combustion.
Iron and steel tilings and turnings
when mixed with oil- will ignite
spontaneously after becoming damp.
A steam pipe against wood will cause1
the latter to ignite spontaneously
after being carbonized, particularly il
superheated steam enters the pipe,
thus increasing the temperature.

case of muBoular rheumatism. At timea I could not work at all (my business

not work. My aufforinjr was intenso. Physicians treated me. irlthout permanent,
vollef, however. Tried a number of advertised romodlea without permanent
benoflt. Finally I tried "UUKOMAOIUB." It did tho work, and I have, had ex
cellent health for three years. I can cheerfully say that all rheumatics should
uso " BBBUUAOXDK," for it ls by far the best remedy. .%

until he resigned to move to Greenville, says:
Greenville,. S: C., October 10,1002.
After a service of one season at White Stone Llthla Springs, as resident
physician, 1 do not hesitate to say that the effect of thu water upon, those who
drink lt for any length of time, has been perfectly marvelous. Invariably an
Increase both in flesh and appetite was perceptible in one week, proving ft tb
be a mineral water of undoubted powerful tonic property. Its peculiar adapt
ability to diseases originating from disorders of the kidneys, bladder and liver,
such as dropsy, Bright's disease, diabetes and uric acid calculi, and all forms of
dyspepsia, rheumatism and gout, is to be expected from Che splendid analysis.
lt has been noted frequently that visitors before coming here had to follow,
every meal with some, form of corrective, or contine themselves entirely to
predigested foods; soon discarded these entirely, being delighted to lind that
the water alone-nature's own remedy-sn diced.
Of the many who drank this water this season for ten days consecutively,
not one but experienced decided henelit and a perceptible gain weight, varying
from two to live pounds. L. C. STEPHENS. M. D.
