? fire broke out In the woods bnck of

hard to control, but was finally put out

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.
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.
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

bo realized for tho crustaceau, which
makes tho business of crabbing prohibi?
Tho United States training ship Albana

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

of Petersburg, who was expected to ad?

his place being accoptablv filled by Mr.
