100,000 ACRES IN DANGER.
Water May Cover Some of the Richesl
Delta Land.-Interest in the Mis
sissippi Flood.
New Orleans. La., March 27 --In.
terest in the flood situation here to.
day centred in the break at Hy
melia, near Lucy, La., forty miles
above the city, and the disastrous
crevasse reported south of Greenville.
Cotton men felt especial concern
with respect to the latter and the an
nouncement in private dispatches,
which were circulated on the floor of
the Cotton Exchange, that 100,000
acres of the richest delta land would
probably go under water, created a
feeling of depression. While this
break will doubtless cause a decline
in the river in the vicinity of
Greenville and for a considerable
distance south, relieving the strain
on the Louisiana levees in the 5th
district, it is further unfortunate in
that water which goes through must
inevitably return to the Mississippi
through the Yazoo, thus prolonging
the period of high water south of
that point.
SEVEN HUNDRED MEN AT WORK.
The day's developments at Hyme
lia gave much encouragement.
Through the co operation of the La
fourchee levee board the railroads
affected, the Government engineers
and the planters, large quantities of
material and forces of men were got
ten to the scene soon after daylight.
Under experi6nced crevasse fighters
seven hundred laborers were put to
work early in the forenoon and a
line of cribbing begun from either
side of the break. To-night's ad
vices were to the effect that all the
cribbing that had been driven during
the day was holding, owning to the
excellent batture, and that if the
work is not interrupted by wind and
rain, sacking is likely to begin to
morrow and the break be closed by
Sunday. The upper end of the
Ireak is holding and the wash from
the lower end is slow. The width of
the crevasse is between 150 and 200
feet. A large area of land is already
\ submerged, but if the effects of the
forces at work are successful the
water will quickly drain off. The
crevasse is in the heart of one of the
richest sugar districts of Louisiana.
It is expected at the Illinois Cen
tral office that through traffic over
the Mississippi Valley will be sus
pended as a result of the disaster
south of Greenville.
WAs THERE FOUL PLAY Y
The belief that the Hymolia levee
was cut in order to relieve other sec
tions is strong. It has resulted in in
~creased vigilance along the levees in
both the Lafourche and Ponchartrain
districts and any attempt tos repeat
the action at Hymelia is likely to be
followed by bloodshed if the perpe
trators are caught. Tlhe river has
fallen considerably in the immediate
vicinity of Hlymelia and the strair.e
Shats beeni ma iterially lessened on the
levees on t he east banik of t he river.

NOT HESSIAN PLY, BUT LOUSE.
It Has Done Much Damage to Oat Crop,
But Its Natural Enemy Is
Destroying It.
[The State.)
Orangeburg, March 28.- Prof.
Charles E. Chambliss of Clemson
college, an experienced entomologist,
was in Orangeburg and has encour
aging tidings for the farmers of Or
angeburg, Bamnburg, Cl arendon, Sum
ter, Florence, Darlington, Marlboro,
Lee, Richland and Saluda Counties,
where the so called Hessian fly has
been playing wild havoc with the
oats and other small grain crops.
In some sections of these counti es
the crop has been almost totally de.
Ptroyed, .ind the plague is of such a
ierious nature that the State board
of entomology sent Professor Cham
b!iss out to study the destroyer and,
if possible, to advise some means of
exterminating it; and he has been
successful in his research.
Professor Chambliss has visited
Darlington, Florence and Orange
burg counties so far, and finds the
cause and conditions the same in
each.
This correspondent interviewed
Professor Chaibliss on the subject.
and found the subject interesting
and unique, in that this grain de
stroyer is in turn the victim of an
enemy in animal life and is being
speedily reduced.
Professor Chambliss says that the
damage has been done, not by the
Hessian fly, but by a small grain
louse. This enemy obtains its food
by inserting its jointed beak in the
stem ind leaves of the oats, by which
it sucks the sap and if it does not
completely kill the plant, will cause
the grain to be severely injured and
shriveled. There is no practical
remedy, but this need not cause
alarm for, at present., the natural
enemy of the louse has checked its
ravages. These natural enemies will
keep the louse in bounds, and if
there were a practical remedy t ibere
would be no need of applying it.
These natural enemies of the louse
are bugs of four species, and not tin
like the potato bug. These bugs
feed on the louse and are rapidly ex
terminating them. Dry or cool
weather retards the work of the louse,
so that with favorable weather, aided
by the bugs, it is no' thought that
their ravages can continue longer.
The broadcasting of air slacked
lime when it strikes the insects will
kill them, but not in suflicient num
boe to make this remedy pay. The
application of nitrate of sodla at ~i'
pounds to the uacre will unquestion
ably stimulite the planit to vigorous
growth which might enTble it to re
sist the attack of the louse, but no
imfmedliate results conlhf be obtained
by its use and it would prove a need
less expense, as the natural enemios~
have already so groatly rodulced the
nuombers of the louse as to remove
the fear of further injury.
Professor CJhamnblis. says thlat all
volunteer oats shou1(1ldab dest royedi,
and that in planating next fal lit must
be (lone on land nmot now in fected.
However, full inst ructions for fu
hure guidance will be given i.a iho
builletin to he issued this summesr.
Professor Chamubliss urges as mneh
publicity in the wveekly paper a
possib)le, so that. the farmers may b'
informed speedily, thereby savingt
them expanlse and worry.

CRUM'S BOND APPROVED.
The President's Colored Candidate Will
Probably Qualify Within a
Few Days.
[News and Courier.]
Washington, March 27.-Dr. Crum
is now co.lector of the port of Char
leston. Secretary Shaw to-day ap
proved Crum's bond for $50,000, and
his commission is already in Char
leston. It was the original intention
of Crum to file a bond endorsed by
reliable personal friends, but upon
further consideration it was deemed
advisable to follow the almost gen.
oral practine of being bonded by a
surely company.
The Fidelity and Guaranty Com
pany, of Baltimore, furnished the
necessary 'bond. Thus the Crum
cao5 ceases, for the time being, to be
a national istsue.
He will probably qualify within a
few days and take charge of the
Charleston Custom House.
When Congress reassembles next
winter Crum's nomination will have
to be again submitted to the senate.
I!is friend.i may delay action indeti.
nitely, and in t he meantime he will
continue in ofice at the pleasure of
the President.
PHCITIAiD O ETS THE PLUM.
The appointment, of former Sena
bor Pritchard to membership in the
Supreme Court of the District of Co.
lumbia meaus a big slake up in the
Republican politics of North Caro
lina.
Pritchard, it is ainnounced, will re
sign from the State chairmanship
and from membership upon the Re.
publicani national committee.
It is expected t here will be a lively
scramble for these places. Pritch
ard's son- in law, Thomas S. Rawlins,
will, it is expected, be made State
chairman, while th, national con
mittee membership is given to the
eastern part of the State.
The Judgeship on the District
Bench pays $6,000 ia year. Pritch.
ard had been tendered an attorney
ship for the Southern Railway, which
would have paid him nearly as much,
but he aspires to a place in the Cir.
cuit Court of Appeals, and believes
this Jtudgeship will put him in line
for suiicnh a position.

A reporter of the News and Con

Shall it be said that South Caro

is a laggard in paying hontge to the

their lives in her defence ?
Is it t rue that there is a single com.
mnnity within the borders of her fair
domain which will not furnish tonl
mnn, sons of Confederate Votorans,
who will unite in forming a band of
comrades, not fort h o purposo of keep

but rather to perpetuate the memo

comrades, lot us be up and doing.
