One Darky Devours Six nnd Cnptwrea the Half-Dollar Parse. The birthday of Amanicau independ ence this year was celebrated in At lanta with a “nigger jubilee.” The lown was given over to the darkies, and the principal streets wore the as pect of a wire-grass town in the Turpen tine regions Saturday afternoou. There were many strange scenes where the darkies had gathered, and strongest of these was the watermelon duel, which was witnessed at neon just in from of the Kimball house. Here a traveling salesman had gathered a lot of excursionists from Athens. He proposed to give a half dollar and fur nish the fruit to the negro who could eat the most watermelon in ten min utes. There were three entries. The negroes were each given a melon to start on and were allowed to cut it as they wished. The word “go” was given and the three men began to devour melons with the ferocity of a steam engine. One of the men had cut his melon in circular form. These he would break Into segments, atich he would appear to swallow, rinds in cluded. Another darky, with a cavernous mouth, had his melon in horizontal slice*. He would grab these with light ning-like speed, swipe it quickly across his mouth, allowing the seed to escape on on* side and the husk to come out at tlhe other. At the end of live minutes tw<3 of the contestants ted called “enough.” Each cue had eaten four melons. The other darky continued until he declared that he could eat no more. He had been go ing into the red meat for seven minute* aud had scored six melons. 14 was a remarkable record, and the half dollar waa awarded him. This the negro put in his pocket aud walked off. apparently feeling better for hia huge meal. “Dat nigger sho’ am in beben,” said an old darky who had been watch ing the contest. “Dean aeben millions am wnuf ter gib him religion dc res* uy hia nacfcef* life.**—Atlanta Constitu tion OKLAHOMA IS BOOMING. It Mar Dfconif a State Before Either New Mexico or Ariaoaa. Oklahoma was organized as a terri tory in May, 1890, a little more than seven years ago, having been cut off from the Indian territory. At that time the population of the territory was 60,000 —33,000 male and 27,000 female— and was almost exclusively native-born white inhabitants, the total number of foreigners being 700; of colored inhab itants, 2,900, and of Mongolians, 2,500. Oklahoma was the last of the terri tories to be let in, Arizona having been admitted in 1863, and New Mexico in 1850; but its growth has been so rapid that there is now talk of making Okla homa a state. It is said that no other territory ever gained population so fast, and if the proposed new state were admitted it would outrank 15 of the present states in population. The pres ent population of Oklahoma, it is t£iid, exceeds 500,000. and the number is in.-* creasing at a r~t« so rapid that unless it be stopped Oalahoma will have, be fore many \*ears, not only a larger pop ulation than Chicago has, but even, though this seems incredible, a larger population than Chicago claims. The development of Oklahoma has been promoted enormously since its establishment as a territory. The rail road business has been developed largely within its borders, and the early settlers who went out in wagons, in carts and on prairie schooners have now all the facilities of modern travel. In 1880 there were not 300 railroad in Oklahoma and the Indian territory, then united. On the admis sion of Oklahoma there were not 100 miles of railroad within its borders, though at that time the Indian terri tory had 1,200. On January I, 1892. the railroad mileage of Oklahoma had risen to 390. On January 1. 1896, it was 430, and is now nearly 600 miles. Oklahoma is modern in some other respects. In 1896 there were more business failures in it than in all the other territories combined—more busi ness failures in the year than in New Hampshire and Vermont, together. But business in Oklahoma has been good and there are. it is said, 60.000 in dividual farm owners. The material prospects of Oklahoma have been im proved greatly during the last three or four years bj- many additions through immigration of women, who now are nearly as numerous as the men. There are enrolled in the Oklahoma school* more than 75,000 pupils and- there are nearly 2,000 teachers there. The soil and cliiqate of Oklahoma are favorable to the production of corn, cotton, sorghum, flax and fruit, and it is remarked as an encouraging indica tion of thrift that the inhabitants, un like those of New Mexico and Arizona, have only seven holidays a year, Wash ington’s birthday being one and Dec oration day another. Some 53.000 votes were cast in Oklahoma at last year’s election—11,000 more than in Florida, and 22.000 more than in Dela ware —and of these the plurality for the successful party was only 1.100. Oklahoma desires to be a state before 1900 and its desire may be realized.— N. Y. Sun. AMERICAN TEA CULTURE. HI*heat tirades of the Plaat Are Cat ttvated ta the United Stat/. Most people will be surprised to learn that tea gHMng is a successful indus try in this country, and that the high est prices are being paid for the Amer ican product of this popular beverage. Secretary Wilson, of the department of agriculture, lately requested William Saunders, the veteran horticulturist of his department, to visit the tea farm of Charles W. Shepard at Summerville. S. C-, and report upon what he should see there. Seventeen years ago Mr. Saun ders prepared an article on •‘Tea Cul ture as a Probable American Industry," wnich was mainly intended to answer requests coming from all parts of the country n.s to the status of tea culture in the United States. For 20 years previous tea plauts had been annually distributed in varied quantities, the only purpose at that time being to en courage the culture of tea plauts for domestic purposes iu a limited way. The cost of labor and deficiency of raiu fall were the main obstacles in the way of making tea culture successful com mercially. The tea farm visited by Mr. Saunders is gently undulating and the soil is mainly a sandy loam, and he found that farm to be under perfect cultivation. The labor question had been settled by Dr. Shepard by building a schoolhouse on the farm, inviting the people of the surrounding country to seud their children there for instruction, and in the intervals of the school term he em ploys the scholars, under pay. to pick tea. Dr. Shepard has procured tea. plauts from all quarters of the globe, has experimented extensively with them and has been so greatly encour aged that he declared that were he 20 years younger he would plant 50 acres as rapidly as he could procure the plants. His experiments with the tea plant have been so thorough and suc cessful that some arrangement should be made whereby he could impart his knowledge to others, and for this pur pose he advises the establishment of a school where the veteran tea grower could Instruct young men so that they might undertake the work of develop ing the ten Industry in this country. The ten from Dr. Shepard's farm sells for one dollar per pound, is of n high quality, and it Is believed that his suc cess establishes the fact that tea can be grown in this country so as to be com mercially successful. — Washington Star.
