ting In Improvements.
Summerton, Sept. 23.?The usual
equinoctial gales were felt here In
the modified condition of still breezes,
but no blow sufficient to cause fears
of a storm reached our favored sec?
tion. The Autumnal Equinox was,
however, accompanied by a percepti?
ble cool change, which served as a
reminder of the actual arrival of the
fall season. At this busy season the
scientific truth of equal day and
night seems rather delusive, for in
fact not many care to enjoy that
privilege at present. On the con?
trary If the 12 1-2 cent cotton Is
maintained much longer our farmers
and laborers will wish to reduce
night to Its minimum length. Yes?
terday and also this morning the
above price Is being paid freely on
the local market. Receipts here are
still very heavy and bid fair to break
all previous records for September.

GOV. JOHNSON S BODV LIBS IN
MINN BSOTA CA PITOL.
Great Crowds Accompany Hcniaiiis
and Mu'et Funeral Train 1.11 Route
to St. Paul.
St. Paul, Minn., Sept. 21.?One of
the most remarkable tributes ever
paid to the memory of a public
man in Minnesota was accorded the
late Gov. Johnson toiay.
From the hour that the governor's
death was first publicly announced
by tolling bells in Rochester, all un?
usual public activity was abandoned.
All banks, stores and offices were
closed and buildings were draped in
black and purple crepe.
Gov. Johnson's body was escorted
to a special train for St. Paul by a
throng of citizens from every walk of
life. On the train were Mrs. John?
son, a few of her personal friends,
State officers and friends of the late
governer. As the cortege passed
down the street leading to the rail?
way station the escort lined up on
either side with bared heads and the
hundreds of people around the depot
showed a like respect. Mayor Thomp?
son had proclaimed it a day of public
mourning. The mayor and council
men acted as pallbearers.
All the way along the route to St.
Paul Hags were at half mast and
buildings draped with crepe.
At Zombrota the entire population
of the town seemed to be at the sta?
tion. A touching feature was the ap?
pearance of a large number of school
children lined up along the platform,
each provided with the national col?
ors pofnted downward. Similar re?
ceptions were accorded the special
train at other points along the route.
At St. Paul the train was met by
detachments of all the local com?
panies of the National Guard and an
eacort of police. In spite of a heavy
downpour of rain the procession to
the State capitol with the militia act?
ing as escort was witnessed by thou?
sands of people.
At the capitol the body was placed
in the rotunda where it will lie in
state until tomorrow afternoon,
guarded by four sergeants, four cor?
porals and four privates.
Tomorrow afternoon the ReV. J. J.
Lawler, chaplain of the governor's
staff, will conduct services in the cap?
itol. Thursday the body will be tak?
en to St. Peter, where final services
will be held under Presbyterian. au?
spices, with the Rev. R. E. Clarke,
in charge. Interment wil be in the
