The corn crop of the nine1
Southern states last year ex
ceeded that of the yrevious year
by more than 158,000,000 bush
els, aind these nine states pro
duced 45 per cent. of the entire
corn increase over the year 1909
in the whole United States.
While Andrew Carnegie is
giving $10,000,000 toward the 3
work of establishing .interna
tional peace, it is a fact that
the year 1911 will see more gi- y
gantic warships launched than i
any previous year in history.
The combined powers before the
year is closed will set afloat 36 i
battleships of the dreadn aught
size. The number now on the
water is 88, and it has takeni
five years to roduce them. t
About fifteen million dollars
were spent in this country last 1
year in the organized fight I
against luberculosis, a sum
twice the total of the previous t
year. This was in the main- a
tenance of institutions and in I
the educational crusade, and
many millions more were spent ]
in private attempts it cure and
in the home care of patients. t
Intelligent and organizedt work I
on such a scale mst soon make
a great diecrease in the toll of
lives no0w needlessly sacrificed
to this dread disease.
Senator Sullivan is Sore.
Senator Sullivan, of Williams
ton, uncle of Mr. C. C, Feather
stone, the gentleman that Cole
I' Blease defeated for governor,
comes out in a long communica
tion and advises magistrales not
reappointed by Gov. Blease to
hold on to their jobs. Now,
suppose Mr. Featherstone had
been elected,,.and saw fit to do
as did Gov. -Blease. asks' the
Anderson Intelligencer, would
Senator Sullivan have acted as
he is now doing?
What Jeffries' Went Up Against.
A recent dispatch from San
Francisco is likely to discourage
such wh e pgilists as oney be
industriously training with the
hope of facing Jack Johnson in
the prize ring and snatching the
chanmgionshio from his grasp.
The dispatch, after stating that
the negro pugilist-had visited a
hospital where his brother is un
der treatment for threatened
blindness, proceeds:
"While experts were taking
X-ray pictures of Charlie they
suggestedl that the champion sit
down and have an X-ray made
of his head to find the thickness
of his skull.
''Johnson accepted and the re
sult showed that it required fih e
and a half minutes for the rays
to penetrate, thus proving that
the champion has a skull rang
ing from one-half to three-quar
ters of an inch, which is more
massive than, the skull of a Tex
as steer.
"While It took five and a half
minutes for the rays to penetrate
Johnson's skull they go through
an ordinary human head from
five to fifteen seconds.
"The result of the X-ray ex
posure amazed all medical ex
perts at the German Hospital.
All declared that Johnson's skull
surpassed in thickness any I
which they had seen and proved
that he could not be knocked out i
by a blow on the head." t
No white man can hope to e
stand with bare fists before either a
the hind hoofs of a mule or a .j
riegro whose skull is thicker b~
than that'of a- Texas steer, and 11
so.Johison is likely to hold the il
championship until sd'de-acrllla ti
r tour-footed 'animal is allowed
face* him in th'e ring.-Macon

It affords me much pleasure
;o write a few lines to the read

fournal in regard to my first
risit to the West.
I left Pickens, Jan. 4, for
Atlanta, where I joined three of
xny friends, Messrs. Lloyd and
Roy Grandy and Mr. Lucius
L. Earle, and went from there
to% Oklahoma City, Okla. We
enjoyed the trip fine. Arrived
in Oklahoma City,: Jan. 11th,
where we met with several of
our Pickens friends. Oklahoma
City is a pleasant place, but the
wind and changeable climate
miakes it very unpleasant.
After five weeks' stay in Okla
boma, Air. Earle and myseif
left for Los Arigeles, Cal.;- Mr.
Lloyd Grandy returned after
vard ,to Pickens on a' business
On our way to California we
stopped off at Williams, Ariz. ,
an~d went up to the Grand Can
yon, where wve spent some few
days. * The Canyon, with its
snow-capped peaks, is a beauti
ful sight. It la the most inter
esting spots we have visited,. on
our trip. We had the pleasure
of witnessing an Indian dance
while at the Canyon, and it was
certainly amusing.
We then left for Los Angeles,
Calif., where we have been
since. The climate is very mild;
warm days and cool nights.
Los Angeles, with its towering
palms and beautiful flowers,
make it an ideal resort. Like
D)klahoma City, it is well sup
plied with hobble skirts.. The
Los Angeles ladies are complain
ing about the steps on the street
ears not being low enough since
bhe "hobbles" have come in
style. I think economy, not
30mfort, brouight, on' the fad.
