Noel, Jack son, Mississippi: We, the undersigned citizens oi Holmes Coun ty. Mississippi. would respectfully state that at the September, 1911, term of the Circuit Court of Holmes County, John GibBtin, a negro boy of about the age of 20 years, was found guilty of murder and sentenced to be hanged. The de ceased waB of nearly the Bame age as the ac cused aod was the wife of Julius Caesar, a very old man whom, as the evidence shows, she had discarded and was in the habit of consorting with different young men, among whom was the accused, with whom she had relations of inti macy a shortly ing took place on the Becond Sunday of Septem ber, while the grand jury for tbe September term was in session, and was tried witbin a few days, while the feeling of the community was running high against the accused. John is an unusually stupid negro boy and was of but little assistance to counsel appointed by the Court to represent him, and hia father, who is a repre sentative negro of the Old school, was at the time in a pitiable state of exeitement and semi collapse. This old man has lived for over 25 years on the J. B. Cunningham place in this county and raised an immense family of chil dren and grand-children and this is tbe first In stance of their giving the community any trou ble or expense. The face nor manner nor his tory of this boy, barring the crime under con sideration. show extreme viciousness, but on, the otber hand more than average quietness and docility. We think it but fair to say that new evidence was discovered upon which a new trial was sought, but overruled, which would. If it could be presented show him in s more fav orable light. This evidence is in the record. We earnestly submit this case to the Executive Power of the State and petition yon to comnfntc the sentence in this case from death to a term for life in the penitentiary, feeling that the in terests of the whole commuaity will not be hurt but enhanced by such action. Respectfully. nd from whom she obtained money until before the time of the killing. This kill NEWS AND VIEWS. J Tom Eubank Writes About His Phil* , adolphia Fourth.

I got up about 9 o'clock and got breakfast and had cantaloupes tor breakfast. This re minded me that for the last teu 4tbs of July I was under tbe tree at the ooraer of Mullen & Owen's old stand buying and shipping canteloupes and otber fruit. Mo I said today as mv business didn't call me under the tree I would spend the dav trying to eat them up, and I guess I eat at least twenty by midnight with a few melons for good measure. From breakfast I went to city ball, a 120,000,000 build ing, w,ith William Penn's statue on top. almost as high as tbe New York skycrapers. Went from there a few blocks,coine to Wanamakers big cloth ing store, one of the largest clothing departments there is. Bis building looks to be larger than Marshall Field & Co. in Chicago. I went from there to the great Pennsylvania station. I then went to dinner, and from there to Washington square Potter's Field where the British buried their prisoners. The old prison is said to have been just across. There is said to be some trees in this square that Washington set ont. I know it was a nice cool shade and I'slept a little too late to get into the hall where the first congress was held I went to In dependence square, which is a beauti ful square, with a fine monument and Commodore Perry's statne, standing with bis hand pointing towards the place where the Ametican prisoners We at the Keystone Hotel treat, and at 12 o'clock W.

Duiing the past month, the A. t College in co-operation with the Unit ed States Bureau ot Entomology fas been investigating the boil weevil a*i> uation in Mississippi. It baa been found that theta ate fewer weevils in the infested territory at this time tban at any time since the advent of this insect into the state. Weatbar con ditions adverse to the boll weevil have caused this great reduction in tb* * numbers. There are at least thiee fac tors tbat have assisted in this good work. First: During last October, there was an early freeze tbat caught large numbers of weevils at woik the fields. Second: Early last January, over a large portion of the infested territory the temperature was veiy low between six degrees and fourteen degrees Fahrenheit, on several days. This is the coldest weather that the weevils have bad to pass through since their advent into the state. Thiid: During May and June, 1911, there was a continued period of dry hot weather. M. I on to a in Tbe three weather conditions that aie known to be of the greatest aid in tbe control ot tbe boll weevil are long periods of hot dry weatb er during tbe growing season, exceedingly cold winters, and oarly fall freezes. All three of these conditions have come to our aid in Mississippi during the past nine months. Nature has beon of great assistance to us in tbe control of the boll weevil this year but it it* r.ec essarv for us to do our part if the bail weevil injury is to be kept to the min imum. WHAT TO DO NOW. At this season ot the year (midsummer) two practices should be followed. First, the cotton should be kept in a high state ot cal tivation. Tfce scil should not bo al lowed to become bard, but continuous shallow cultivation should keep the surface covered with a fine dust mulch. Second.all punctured squares should he picked up and destroyed. When eggs are laid in tbe cotton squares, tbe squares turn yellow and flare open and usually fall to the ground. All of these shonld be picked up, but all yel low or unhealthy looking squares on tbe plants should also be gathered. If all of these squares are destroyed by burning, the eggs and grubs or young weevils within them will be killed and therefore will not become weevils to lay their eggs in otber squares later in the season. As each weevil that develops now mav become the ancestor of a great number of weevils later on, it is at once evident tbat it is very es sential tbat as many as possible be de stroyed early in the season. All of the adult weevils that can be found should be destroyed at once. These weevils are now laying their eggs and destroying cotton squares. Each weevil tbat is killed means the saving of a large number of cotton bolls. The adult weevils will be most often found witbin, or around the out side of the open blosasoms; and they may be found around tbe squares and A. R. J, C. E. C. S. C. B. 8. F.
