against the rules of tho house.
"This Is nn evolution of the secrel

to an onlooker, "It Is not up-to-date

"Dismal Swamp" no More.
Tho famous Dismal Swamp in Vir
ginia Is coming Into profitable cultl
vntlon. Tho first company to promote
Dismal Swamp was organized in col
oninl days. Oeorgo Washington was
one of tho promoters and tho largest
stockholder. His company owned two
thirds of (ho 300.000 acres of the
swamp apt built a canal to float the
timber from Its 'property.
I.lttlc has been done from that
time until recently, except by lumber
men. In the days before tho war the
swamp was a popular refuge for run
away slaves, It Is Bltuated In the
southeast corner of Virginia, and it
extends from a fow miles from Nor
folk. At Its hlghost points It Is only
fifteen or twenty feet above tidewater
Its streams aro so puro that theli
wnter Is sought by vossols golni; on
It was long thought that the swami
was mnlarious nnd that white mer
could not llvo there the year round
This notion has beon disproved by tltr

Thero has been a grent deal of dis
appointment because the Garfield re

doubt, however, that the report is cor
rect. . , C
Tho census reports compiled by the
government in 1900, before the agita
tion regarding tho "beef trust" began,,
throw considerable light on this Ques
tion. It appears from tho census that
tho packing Industry is conducted on.
a smaller margin of cross, profit than
any other industry In America. Tho
gross margin of profit of 871 flour nnd
grist mills In Illinois, In tho, census
j ear, wns nearly seven per cent on
the volume of business. The1 gross,
margin of fifty-one wholesale slaugh
tering and meat packing establish-'
ments In Illinois was only about one
third as large, or a little more thai

of tho packers. It may turn out that
