The Belmont Farm at Smyrna has asked for sufficient space to make an exhibit of 750 chickens. Besides these large exhibitors there have been many entries by farmers from nearby counties, so that there is sure to be an unusually excellent poultry display this year. The other departments are showing up well, especially the horse and live stock exhibit. Most of the entries In these departments have been by Geor gia farmers. The contest for premiums here promises to lie wholly between Georgians. In the county exhibits, besides Bul loch and Chatham, two counties are assured, and more will probably block out space before the close of the week. The two who have taken space this week are Camden and Spaulding. VALUESRXED^ BY CONTROLLER. Figure* Means Another Increase of More Than *1.000.000.

The crossing of the fire alarm wires at 1 o'clock this morning caused the ringing of the "Big Duke” and many people supposed there was a fire. IS YOUR STOMACH ON A STRIKE- There I* Nothing to Prevent Yon Employing a Substitute to Do Its Work. There Is such a thing as forbearance ceasing to be a virtue even In the cise of one’s stomach. There is no question but that some stomachs will stand a great deal more wear and t;*r and abuse than others, but they all have their limit and when that limit Is reached, the stomach must ba reckon ed with as sure as fate. The best way and really the only effective way to treat your stomach when it rebels Is to employ a substitute to do Its work. This will give the weakened and worn out organ an opportunity to rest and regain its strength and health. Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets relieve the stomach of its work by taking up the work and doing it Just as one set or shift of workmen relieve* another. They actually digest the food in just the same mariner and Just the same time as the digestive fluids of the sound stomach do. In fact, when dissolved In the stomach, they are digestive fluids for they contain exactly the same con stituents and elements as the gastric Juice and other digestive fluids of the stomach. No matter what the condi tion of the stomach is, their work is Just the same. They work In their own natural way without regard to sur rounding conditions. The stomach being thus relieved by Stuart’s Dyspepsia Tablets, Is restored and renewed by Nature and the rest of the human body does no*, suffer in the least by reason of its failure to perform its work. A Wisconsin man says: "I suffered the pangs of dyspepsia for 10 years. I tried every known remedy with indif ferent results until I was told of the re markable cures of Stuart’s Dyspepda Tablets. I bought a box, began taking them, and forgot I had a stomach. Three boxes cured me completely. I have had no trouble whatever for a year and have an appetite like a har vest hand and can eat anything that is set before me without fear of bad re sults.” Stuart’s Dyspepsia Tablets are fir sale by all druggists at 50c a box. The druggist never fails to have them In stock because the demand for them is so great and so pronounced that hr can not afford to be without them. People who could not get them of one druggist would go to another and would get In the habit of buying their other drugs there as well as thslr Stuart'* Dyspep sia Tablets. SAVANNAH MORNING NEWS' FRIDAY. OCTOBER 23. 1903. Coalil Nat Sleep for Coughing. "In the winter of 1903 I contracted a severe cold and It resulted In pnou mona." says Mr. Bert Hatch of South Dayton, N. Y. "For five days and nights I could not sleep, was constant ly coughing. Mr. J. J. Rundell, know ing of my illness, sent me a bottle of Chamberlain’s Cough Remedy, and in a short time it gave me relief so that I could sleep, and two bottles of the remedy cured me. I had taken five different remedies, but could get no re lief until I began using Chamberlain's Cough Remedy. Too much cannot be said for such a medicine.” When a druggist takes the liberty of sending a medicine to a friend you may know that the remedy sent is a good one. For sale by all druggists. RAVAGES OF BOLL WEVIL GIVES ALARM IN TEXAS. Mr. Heed Flanders Says He Doesn't Think They Have Reached Louis iana. Mr. Reed Flanders, of the firm of Mc- Mlnnis-Flanders Company of New Or leans, was a guest in the city yester day, en route to New York, coming by way of Savannah to arrange some busi ness affairs with several firms with which his house does business. Mr. Flanders said that he had Just returned from a trip through Texas, and that the situation there in the cot ton belt Is alarming, on account of the disastrous raids of the boll weevil that has devastated the crops. "Thousands of acres of the most promising cotton that I have ever seen,” said Mr. Flanders, "have been entirely deserted, and not a bale of cotton to ten acres could be gathered from it. This particular kind of in sect is a beetle with a huge proboscis. He came originally from Mexico. We heard nothing of him on this side until the extension of cotton growing in the southern counties of Texas made a bridge for him to cross the Rio Grande, and he was first noticed in Bee county, Texas, in 1894. The agricultural de partment experts proposed to the Texas Legislature to stop growing cotton along the river for two years, and starve the assassin out. ‘Who is go ing to pay the planters for this sacri fice?' asked the legislators. "Since then the beetles have travelled at the rate of seventy-five miles to the northward and twenty-five miles to the eastward every year. On Texas soil the weevil has thriven like the rabbit in Australia, for the female lays from •three hundred to seven hundred eggs a year. They develope with the boll It self, and eventually blight it so that it does not open. I have heard that the pest has been seen in many places In Louisiana and Georgia, but I believe that this is a mistake. I have seen no indications of its existence anywhere that I have been, and I have in the past few months traveled almost over the entire of Louisiana. "To show you what deadly effect the Insect has it has actually become a factor in the stock markets; the bears try to suppress it. Louisiana opinion is that the soil and the climate of the state will prevent any spread there. I understand that Mississippi and Geor gia hope the same. "Insecticide does no good. Going over the fields with revolving brushes that sweep off the affected plant Is too costly. The hope that a certain green bug that was the natural enemy of the weevil was soon dashed. The damage to the crop is $30,000,000 a year In Texas. Last year a large number of represen tative cotton men. with government experts and entomologists to advise, met in Dallas to begin a systematic fight against the enemy. At their be hest the state government offered $50,- 000 to buy one who would find a remedy for the evil. Everybody then thought that surely a remedy would be found, but a thousand methods were exploit ed without the shadow of success. "Despite the efforts of the exports there has been no. abatement to the ravages this year. Texas to-day would doubtless give $10,000,000 as quickly as it would have given $50,000 a year ago for a remedy. The boll weevil Is prin cipally responsible for the short crop In the Lone Star state this year. MUSIC CLUB’S CHORUS REORGANIZED. The chorus of the Savannah Music Club was reorganized for the season last night. The meeting for the pur pose took place in the Lawton Me morial, was exceptionally well attended, and developed much enthusiasm. Some forty singers enrolled themselves in the chorus, among them most of the soloists of the organization. It Is ex pected by the officers of the club that even this number will be materially in creased shortly. The chorus will be under the direc tion of Miss Emma E. Coburn, while the accompanist will be Miss Lola Moy nelo. At the organization meeting a few light chrouses were sung but more pretentious work will be taken up shortly. The annual meeting of the music club will be held Nov. 5. RACES AT WORTH. Continued from Third Page. Dr. Stephens. 5 to 2, second, and Eng lish Lad, 12 to 5, third. Time 1:45 2-5.

The Game Mare Will Try to Win Creseeu*’ Laurels To-Day. Memphis, Tcnn., Oct. 22.—Lou Dillon, the speedy daughter of Sidney Dillon, ■with a mark of two minutes for a mile, will be sent against the world’s trotting record to-morrow at the Mem phis Driving Park track. The mare will be' accompanied by two runners, and will be driven by Millard Saun ders. The consensus of opinion among horsemen generally here to-night is that with perfect weather conditions a new mark will be given to the world. The great performance of Dan Patch to-day, when he paced a mile in 1:56‘4, suggests that the track is better and faster than at any time In its history. IN POLICE’COURT. At yesterday’s session of Police Court Cora Walker, the colored domestic ar rested for theft from the residence of Mr. George Fuchs, was remanded for trial in the City Court on two charges. Detective Julius Stark appeared against the woman. Henry Williams, colored, was re manded for trial In the City Court for stealing a ride on the Seaboard Air Line. There were only five prisoners to face the Recorder, and the session was dull and uninteresting. VETERANS' DELEGATES TO AUGUSTA REUNION 9 9 Sons of Veterans to Announce Their Repre sentatives To-day.

The special committee appointed by the executive officers of the Interstate Military Rifle Association to examine into the conditions of affairs at Avon dale range, and ascertain whether that range may be adapted to the use of the Krag-Jorgensen rifle, or whether it will be necessary to secure another site, and if so, to proceed with the selection, are busily engaged in their work. An engineer was employed yesterday to examine several sites, and to give his expert opinion on the practicabil ity of changing the Avondale range so that It may be suited to the Krag. He has been instructed to draw plats of any available sites. These sites will be selected by the committee, who will make a tour on horseback Sunday aft ernoon for the purpose of ascertaining what location will be best for anew range. DAN PATCH REIONS AS KINO OF PACERS He Lowered the World's Record for a Mile to 1:56# on the Memphis Trach. Memphis, Tenn., Oct. 22.—The third day of the harness racing at the Mem phis Trotting Association track was made memorable' by the magnificent performance of Dan Patch in a trial against time. The handsome son of Joe Patchen made the mile in 1:5614. clipping three-fourths of a second from the world's i record of 1:57, held by Prince Alert and lowering his own record by two and three-quarter sec onds. ... . The mile was paced without a wind shield, and at tHe finish Dan Patch seemed as fresh afld vigorous as at the start. V' The demonstration that greeted the world’s new pacing champion as he Hashed under the ; wire, was a mem orable one. His owners who stood about the track before the starters' stand had caught 'the time with their own watches, and before the' official time was flashed out across the track, they set up a mighty shout and threw hats and caps high Into the air. The shout was caught up by the people in the grandstand, the space before It and on the club house grounds, and the vie AVERAGES OF CHAMPIONS IN POST-SEASON SERIES Individual and Team Work in World’s Cham pionship Games.

Among the sites discussed is one at Causten Bluff, on the river front. It is said that there is some high and ; level land at the bluff which would : make a good range, and that the place is naturally suited for a range. The committee will visit this site Sunday, i As stated exclusively in the Morn -1 ing News, Krags are not allowed on : the Avondale range, and It is prob , able that this ruling of the officials of the range will obtain, until next year. Those who are practicing, or attempt ing to qualify, and there are a num ber at the range every afternoon, are using the Springfield rifle. The Guards will not use the range on Thanksgiving Day, it having prac tically been decided to hold their an nual contest on Feb. 22, as has been the custom, except for the past two years. The number out to practice is consequently not so great as hereto fore, but those who are on the range never hear the sharp distinctive crack of the Krag. tory of the new pacing idol was pro claimed in a long hoarse roar that rose and fell and reached its climax tn a frenzy of noise, as Driver M.

Ofllcera Elected and Work Mapped Oat for Entiling Year. An interesting meeting of the Mercer Debating Society was held yesterday afternoon and the work for the ensu ing year mapped out. Officers were elected and the regular work of the society will be taken up for the fall and winter months. Much enthusiasm was manifested by those present and the outlook for a successful year is very bright. The Mercer Debating Society is an organization formed for the purpose of discussing and debating questions of current interest. It alms to benefit the members by giving them a broader view of the questions which are before the public and to accustom them to speaking before audiences on any ques tion that may be proposed. It is connected with the public school work in an indirect way and is named in honor of Col. George A. Mercer, presi dent of the Board of Education. A similar society for the young la dies in attendance at the schools is also conducted in conjunction with the Mercer Society. This society is known as the Arnold Debating Society, and takes its name from Dr. Arnold, one of the former presidents of the Board of Education. The society is similar in its aims and methods of conducting the work to the Mercer Society. A meetings for the election of officers and directors will be held within a short time and the work mapped out for the coming year. At the meeting of the Mercer Society the regular programme which has been carried out in past years was adopted for the coming year. Arrangements will be made for providing suitable topics for discussion and every en deavor put forth to make the society interesting and instructive for its members. It is probable that several special programmes will be arranged during the year. FISHING AND FISHING. They Wlio Fish by Main Strength and They Who Fish With Human Intelligence. From the Rochester Post Express. There is fishing and fishing. A man may enter into the pastime with, all the enthusiasm of old Izaak Walton, or he may haul the finny victims from their natiye element at the end of a thick handline. Either in the popular parlance is called fishing. Also, dyna miting, netting, spearing and snaring are equally included under the same categorical head. And In this confu sion of methods under one designation is found obvious reason for that differ ence of opinion which Pudd’nhead Wil son observed was necessary in'horse races. The artist in the sport looks askance at the hauler of the handflne, and he In turn sneers with contempt at the del icate instruments of the other's pref erence. The one seeks sport, not fish; and the other fish, not sport. Last Sunday a pedestrian who was enjoying the peaceful beauty of the Dugway had an opportunity of beholding a puzzling picture of piscatorial opposites. At one bend in Irondequoit creek stood a man with a slender and flexible rod. more like a whip than a pole. A glittering reel responded delicately to the pres sure of a finger, and the silken line ended In an invisible length of filmy leader. The tiny weight of a leaden pellet made the rod flicker and bend like a feather In a zephyr, and when an occasional rock bass struck, the struggle whipped the graceful shaft into a parabola of jerking stubborn ness. Every fish which the sportsman landed meant five minutes of skilful play, and their number was not spec tacularly great, nor their size worthy of extended language. Half a mile up the stream the wan derer strolled, and there he saw an other sight. It was a picture of peace ful repose set in a frame of restful method. Beneath a willow's mourn ful boughs sat an ancient and rumina tive man. A corncob pipe was between his lips and ever and anon he puffed in a gentle and contemplative cloud. From behind, one would have thought him asleep, but it would have been a mistake. He did not sleep. A near er approach discovered that this elder ly and peaceful man occupied a seat upon the soft turf of the bank equi distant from four bamboo poles ar ranged like the guns of a seacoast battery and trained upon the rippling current of the creek. The ancient man sat with two poles on each side of him, and within reach of a, ready* wrist. From the outer ends of the poles bob bed and swung four corks. The ipedes trian stood in silence and watched. Suddenly one of the corks surged un der. Quick as a flash the piscatorial patriarch reached for the proper pole and heaved, struggling upon the grass, a leaping victim of his successful lure. With quiet move the hook was re wormed and the bober bobbed at ease. Once two of the corks were pulled un der at once and the agile ancient whisked his catch upon the bank, one pole in each hand. Between times he sat in awful stillness and puffed his corncob pipe. • r ■■ A question, pitched in a tone proper ly guarded, brought his head around upon his shoujder. He said he had been having pretty fair for three hours’ fishing and he strained at a string anchored beneath him on the bank. In this he was like the most fastidious flycaster that ever struck a trout with a tiny glitter of gold and red. He showed his catch with con scious pride. The pedestrian counted eight mullets, five rock bass, three so-called Oswego bass, a five-pound pickerel and innumerable sunflsh. "Are the mullets good to eat at this time of year?” asked the pedestrian. "Wall,” aaid the manager of the pole quar ette, "not pertickler, bein’ soft.” He was thereupon asked what he did with ’em. “Take ’em home to show to the old woman and then, if the neighbors don’t want them, thrun ’em away. The ole woman is powerful fond of lookin’ at my ketch.” Now, the artist with the flyrod was fishing and the patriarch with the four bamboo Voles was fishing. The ques tion is: Who was the fisherman?
