CORN-PLANTING TIME A Fire in the Woods Behind a Church. Notes. (Special to Tho Tlmos-Dlspatch.) SCOTT SVIIL.EE, VA;, May 9.?Farmers nre busy planting corn just now, and being bettor prepared for the work than usual, speak hopefully of the prospect of a good crop. ? fire broke out In the woods bnck of the First Baptist Church, colored, ono day this week, and for a whllo seemed hard to control, but was finally put out after a good deal of trouble. It was thought to hnvo been caused by some ono smoking in the woods. Mr. George Patterson, of (Buckingham, was a guest of his ssltor, Mrs. Nannio Gllmer, recently. . Miases Battio Mathews and Eva Pow ors visi lesi Scottsvlllo on Tuesday. Mr. Jnmes Page will take charge of tho Omohundro llvory stable shortly.

THE PEA CROP A FAILURE Pessimistic View of the Fishing Busi? ness and the Bottom Drops Out of the Crab Market?Mr. Morris a Modern Job. (Special to The Times-Dispatch.) YORKTOWN, VA., May 9.-Tho new Constitution, with all of its wonderfully now and up-to-dato provisions, ^especially In the line of Stato assessments. Is quito a conunurum to f??i usual folks, tho coun? try darky especially. Slnco the ailvent of the first day of the month, tho limit of operation of tho tnx law, developments have been exceedingly Interesting to the sabio Virginian. Tho butcher, tho bar? ber, tho pop-shop keeper, havo all boon mado to dive well down Into their pockets nnd bring forth the rusty dollar for a contribution to tbo Stute treasury. Ped? dlers of meat, vegetables, fish and all the other necessaries of life, have all been called upon to swell the funds of the Commonwealth by half a hundred dol Inrs. To a Judge of human naturo, the at titudo those people assume is quite amus? ing, talk a brass band clenn out of sight, defiant as they cnn well be,'and others meek as' Moses, pay tbo cash In with a hearty good will, nr go entlroly out of the business. If nil the impr?3catlons which have been heaped' upon the bonds of tho gentlemen who framed tho now organic law were collected In a receptacle big enough to hold them, tbe bottomless abyss of satan's domain would be a mln Inturo beside it, nnd tbe atmosphere of lindos, be a summer resort, compared with the volumo of sulphurous threats which hn/ve emanated from the minds and mouths of the Afro-American. THE PEA CROP. Tho pea crop, which has begun to be picked, the pnst week, bldS'falr to be even mqre of a failure tbnn was expected, tho percentage of lo>?s ns estimated by prominent farmers nnd truckers has been placed ns low now ns "d per cent. They claim that one-fourth of a crop will be ns big a 'yield as cnn possibly be ex roeted. Some truckers will be well enough satisfied to mnko enough peas to handle tho crop and pay for the seed, not expecting to be able to clear anything at all. This Is due mostly to the ravages of tho pea louse, whoso destruction has been attempted in many ways, but with? out success. The terrible devastation which these parasites manngo to accom? plish is truly wonderful and seemingly beyond reach of any care for The evil. Potatoes are rhbre promising thnrr~WHs oxpocted two weeks ngo, nnd baring fur? ther nccldents or draw-backs, some few may.yet Tre made, although tho crop aa a general thing1, ls very much hurt, and when harvested will show a large per cent. o7 loss. THE BOTTOM DROPPED OUT. An Interesting.? more startling than otherwise, condition of affairs exists among tho fishermen. The bottom seems to havo dropped but entirely of the sea? son and left tho pound men with less than nothing for a remembrance of the sea? son of 1003. No. catches of. any size what? ever have been made,! thero bolng abso? lutely none to catch, ? tho fishermen be? ing nfraid, ns one ofithelr number said rorentlv, to lift their nets';-? not caring to meet the ?leep nnd bitter disappointment of finding nothing. Right along this line nlso is noticnable the deplorable con? dition of the crab market. Fifty cents a barrel In Baltimore Is nil that can bo realized for tho crustaceau, which makes tho business of crabbing prohibi? tory. Tho United States training ship Albana Is expected hero at nny moment from sen. for a period of ten or fifteen days' chance at gunning practice. She was due here on tbe 7th. A MODERN JOB. Mr. D. W. Davis, tho modern "Job," who was so exceeding unfortunate as to lose his house and contents by fire In tho lnst of the winter, was unfortunate enough to have the same fate in the re? cent great conflagration nt Wost Point. His trouble here consisted In the loss of a houso also by the great fire. Certainly tho trial of a Job beset this man at every turn of the road. Dr. Earnest R. Martin, of Grnfton, ac? companied by the Rev. J. W. ' Baker, pastor of tho Methodist circuit, left here yesterday for Campbell county, the home of his fiancee, Miss Mnttle Eppos Asher. The wedding takes place on the 1-ih. Dr. Martin Is originally of Fluvanna. but has been stationed for the past few years at Grafton, where he expects to reside in the future. Lebanon Christian Church held the postponed exercises of Its regular Easter entertainment on Sunday last. The pro? gramme was an excellent ono, thu fea? tures of the occasion being tho vocal priHluctlons of Mrs. ?. H. Stryker and Miss Indiana Bryan. Rev. Dr. Glaascock, of Petersburg, who was expected to ad? dress the ?.colisi?n, was detained away, his place being accoptablv filled by Mr. Pocahontas Smith, of Denbelgh. Quite a nleo collection was realized for the benefit of mission work. Mr. J. J. Whispell, of Tallahassee, Fla., and Mr. M. M. Puller, of West Point, wero visitors bore during tho week.
