Bamberge, special agent of department of agriculture, Bureau of Agriculture, having in charge the demonstration farm woik in Mississippi, has actively commenced his campaign for the 1907 crop year. At the 300 or more farms to be cultivated under government supervision this year, winter plow ing is now in order, and Prof. Bamberge is impressing on farmers the importance of preparation of the soil during the winter months, I owing to the facts that the frosts do not penetrate sufficiently far in this climate to open the soil and admit air. The importance of using careful ly selected seed is also a subject Prof. Bamberge is discussing with the farmers, and all seed planted on the demonstration farms this year will be of the very best varieties, carefully selected and kept in dry places until time for planting. The department of agriculture is I also endeavoring to impress cotton growers, through Prof. Bamberge and other agents, with the fact that the judicious use of commercial fer tilizer is one of the most important ! adjuncts to modern agriculture; that from 200 to 300 pounds of fer tilizer pef acre frequently insures an increase of crop of fifty per cent aud more ; that in purchasing fer tilizers farmers must first acquaint themselves with the constituent el ements of the soil they are about J to plant, determining whether the land needs potash, phosphoric acid and nitrogen. As a general rule, the department believes in the use of high grade fertilizer, containing a liberal percentage of phosphoric acid. These, and many other phases of I cotton growing, are being impressed I upon the farmers of the state, who are beginning to realize the true importance of the government cul tural methods,'and that they can mature their cotton much earlier by the adoption of the method. It is a foregone conclusion among ag riculturists that Mississippi will be visited by an invasion of the Mexi can boll weevil this year, and Prof. Bamberge hopes to get the farmers so thoroughly acquainted with the demonstration farm work the rav ages of the pest can be reduced to a minimum.—Natchez Democrat. I I is Wilkinson to be Dry. Woodville, Miss., Jan. 3.—-The whisky fight which has been ou here for about sixty days was set tled yesterday by a compromise, the saloon men agreeing to go out of business Dec. 31, 1907. This agreement was reached while the board of mayor and aldermen were considering the petitions for and against granting license. When the board met at 4 o'clock Tuesday afternoon both sides were well represented in numbers, as well as legal talent, the saloon men's legal rights being looked af ter by Jones & Ventress; Bramlette & Tucker; Shannon & Jones, of the local bar, and E. H. Ratcliff, of Natchez; while W. J. Stockett, of the local bar, and Jndge O. W. Catchings, of Vicksburg, represent ed the Prohibitionists. At 6 o'clock a motion to adjourn until 9 o'clock yesterday morning prevailed. Only five names on the petition had been passed on. When the board met yesterday morning they were re quested not to take up the petition until a conference could be held be tween the two sides of the question and their attorneys, and at o'clock the agreement was made and reported to the board. Then three out of four of the aldermen aud the mayor pledged themselves not to grant a liquor license during their term of office, which is two years, except the two agreed on to expire Dec. 31, 1907. J. K. Ses sions, the recognized leader of the Prohibition party here, expressed himself as perfectly satisfied with the result of the first effort made for several years to stop the sale of liquor here.—Special to Picayune. to or, day set to 2 day the 000 500 ers er 10 Want 2000 bushels corn. COHN BROS. CHARGEA AGAINST KEESLER Gov. Vardanian Must Act. Can not Afford to Delay Much Longer. The Jackson correspondent of the Natchez Democrat of Dec. 27th, said: 1907 of in crop to of in and on dry is el Governor Vardaman is trying to dispose of the discharges pre ferred against Maj. Gen. S. R. Keesler, of the Mississippi National Guard, by Robert Montgomery, a private of the Port Gibson compa ny, without the necessity of a court martial proceedings. This is the true cause of the de lay in the matter, which has caused much comment in national guard circles. If a court martial is or dered it must come direct from the governor's office, as the adjutant general is without authority to or der the proceedings, being an offi cer of rank inferior to that of the accused party. The charges were placed in the hands of the governor several days ago, and it is understood that there has been considerable correspond ence on the question, with the pur- ( pose of securing a withdrawal of < the allegation that Gen. Keesler cursed and abused Montgomery and struck him while he was a prisoner charged with breach of discipline. The same correspondent, under date of Jan. 4th, said : "There have beftn no recent de velopments in the charges preferred against Maj. Gen. S. R. Keesler, commanding the Mississippi Na tional Guard, but the matter is still a subject of lively comment in military circles, and the opinion is being freely expressed that unless the charges are made the subject of official investigation, it will have a very injurious effect on the esprit de corps of the organization. Prominent officers of the Mis sissippi Guard, while declining to discuss the subject for publication, are expressing the opinion among themselves that failure to order a court martial will virtually mean the disbandment of the state mi- ( ( itia, and they assert this without any malice or ill-will toward Gen. Keesler, who is personally very popular, both with rank and file. Gov. Vardaman still has the I formal charges on file in bis office. Capt. Bagnell has received sev eral letters on the subject, but he is firm in his determination to see that justice is done. He says be has perferred the charges, and he has nothing more to do with it. « I < 1 * » • : >» * 1 5 < < >» 5 Three ninutes Late. Vicksburg, Miss., Jan. 3.— Though his sentence was commuted to life imprisonment by the govern or, William Harvey, a negro, con victed of murder, was hanged at Mayersville, Issaquena county, to day before the sheriff received no tification of the Chief Executive's action. The hour for the execution was set for some time between 11 and 3 o'clock. The sheriff delayed the execution until the last minute, but there was some delay in getting the governor. The next turn of the wheel was to catch the sheriff of Issaquena county before the execution took place. Here .again was delay, and the governor oould not get in commun ication with the sheriff until about 2 o'clock. When he did it was to learn that Harvey had been hanged about three minutes before.
