The State Agricultural Society has finished its annual ses&ion at Dublin and meets next year in Thomasville. Judge J. H. Black, of Sumter, for many years one of the honored vice presidents of the Society, was again chosen to that position. Among the interesting addresses before the Soci ety was one by Prof. H. E, Stock bridge, a Sumter county farmer and former cit’zen of Americus but now director of the Florida experimental station. It was upon the subject of sugar cane, and he told the members how to grow it and how to keep it from fermenting in an ordinary barrel. Fill a barrel, he said, with the moss that grows upon the trees and run the juice through it before cooking it, and the syrup would keep for five years un sealed. He said he sold a-year-old syrup recently in barrels for GO cents per gallon.

While going near a thicket yesterday Mr. Wilkins noticed his pointer dog as he came down on the birds, but was more surprised when both the cock and hen attacked him viciously. They would dash at the dog with the ferocity of game cocks, and to stop the trouble and prevent injury to the birds Mr. Wilkins called the dog away. The pointer had run sud denly into the flock of 20 little par tridges, and the fight made by the old birds was for their protection. That Throbbing Headache.
