THE WHEAT Ol'TLOOK.
Crop May Surpus the iold-
n Yield of 1807.
The price of wheat has none down
and Europe has begun to buy again
in tremendous quantities. Exports
last week reached nearly five mill
lion bushels against less than two
millions for the same week Iatyear.
The old stocks are being cleaned up
to the last bushel und when thresh
ing is over the new grain will come
upon bare markets. If now it should
happen that Europe should reap on
ly moderate crops, we shall soon see
dollar wheat again. At any rate,
we find quotations for the late
summer and autumn mouth options
re ten to twenty cents higher than
they were a year ago. though somt
are predicting a harvest of nearly
fcOO.lXHMHK) bushels. The value of
our wheat grown in 1895 is estimated
bv the Department of Agriculture at
$-J37,9.'W.S9S; that of the IM crop at
$310.ti02,5;i9, and that of 1897 at $428,
517,121 a sort of a geometrical pro
gression as it were. The 1898 crop
is likely to run out worth more than
the golden yield of 1S97, but if it
should not we have had one cake
already, and can eat our wheaten
bread next year and be thankful.

To I fie Sons of Confederate Vrtcr
ana, Columbia, Tenn , Dear Com
radrn: In a letter just to band from
a member of the Maury Rivouac,
Sons of Confederate Veterans, the
statement is made that out of about
seventy names on the roll, a quorum
cannot be secured to hold a busi
The State Reunion of 'he Sons is
to be held in Nashville on the 21st. ,
and the Joe Johnston Rivouac ex
tends a cordial invitation to all the
Sons throughout the State to be on
hand, and take part in the reunion.
It is especially desirable to ar
range to be well represented at the
Atlanta Reunion next month.
We cannot understand the ap
parent lack of interest on the part of
the Columbia Sons. We feel that
every man who marched under the
Confederate banner during the four
years of strife, was a hero; we feel
that every battle fought was an ever
lasting monument to the valor and
undying courage of men who fought
for what they believed to be right;
and we feel that it is not only a
duty, but that it should be a great
pleasure to take part in commemo
rating the history of the Confede
rate soldiers, and in seeing to it that
statistics are gathered which time
will make a fair, impartial and
truthful history of the Civil War.
Let all who have not joined Capt.
Whitthorne and gone to the Philip
pines, Join with your President, Mr.
Alexander, in a business meeting to
arrange to be represented not only
at Nashville, but at Atlanta.

it in recognition of the very fact of
