Gamewell, and is from an old and aristocratic family of South Car alina. Those who were in at tendance from Columbus were, Messrs. John Sale, C. H. Hale, and Miss Symons. After the ceremony Mr. and Mrs. Hale went directly to Meridian which city will in the future be their home.

The contest gives them an opportunity of picking over the premiums and if they have a brother or son or husband or father who would appreciate such a prize, all the better. The full list of premiums will be an nounced Sunday.

J. Sully on the Cotton Prospect. Messrs. J. B. Harris & Co. are in receipt of a letter from Dan'l. J. Sully, the man who assisted Brown in his great cotton cor ner, on the prospects for the cot ton crop for this year. He says: "Reports from the entire cotton belt the past few days have been iof such a character and unanim- ty of opinion with regard to the deterioration of the cotton crop that conviction is strengthened and we feel the necessity of sound ing the warning note to the cot ton world opposing all estimates of a large yield. There are many reasons for holding the view that the crop will not in any case ex cel 11 million bales. The criti cal stage of the plant is generally admitted, the limited time for recovery and the proximity of frost, but most potent of all is the indisputable fact that Texas will find it a physical impossi bility to recover from the ravages of the boll wevil and to have a crop in excess of '6 million bales. In this case the r-i of the coun try will have to produce over eight million bales u u der to raise the estimate."
