Tax«. f Mississippi State News Cotton Picking Well Advanced. The weather bureau's review of crop conditions in Mississippi, is sued last week, says: The mean temperature for the week was from 4 to 6 degrees above nor mal. Fair weather with much sun shine prevailed, except that there were light scattered showers over the northern counties. Conditions have been very favorab ble for cotton picking, which Is gen erally progressing rapidly, although scarcity of labor is reported from many localities, Cotton on hill lauds Is nearly all open and picking is well advanced, especially over the eastern and southern portions of the State, where from one-half to three-fourths of the crop has been gathered. On low lands bolls continue to open fast, some prematurely, and picking is being rushed. There has been little change in the yield outlook, the crop in some sections beiug better than last year while In others it is not quite so good. The pea crop is generally good, ex cept in the southwestern counties, where it is only fair. Sugar cane is maturing nicely and sweet potatoes continue to yield well. A good crop of corn Is being housed. Turnips, gardens and pastures are suffering for rain and stock water is becoming very scarce. Delta Experiment Station. Several counties in the delta will submit llattering propositions to the board of trustees of the Mississippi Agricultural and Mechanical lege, when that body meets to select a site for the new branch agricul tural experiment station authorized for that section of the State. The board will probably convene during the latter part of November, at which time a committee will be appointed to receive propositions, visit the sites offered and make a re port on same to another meeting of the board, which is likely to be set for some time in January. f t is learned that Yazoo, Sunflow er, Bolivar and Washington comi ties are very anxious to secure the experiment station, realizing its im portance as a factor in the develop ment of an agricultural country, and the value ef experiments with various soils, and the planters will arrange some very flattering offers, notwithstanding the fact that delta lands are now commanding fancy prices. The law providing for the estab lishment of the delta station requires that the donation shall not be less than 200 acres, and a tract of this size in the delta is worth a snug lit tle sum when lands are selling* at $100 per acre. The plates the donation of wild lands, however, which can be obtained for a much smaller sum. The legislature made an appro priation of only $3,000 for the sup port of the delta station during the year 1905, which is wholly inade quate in view of the large amount of work necessary to get a new farm in shape, but it is likely that the coun ties will also make liberal cash do nations with their offers, which will aid materially in getting the work under way. at be Uo law contem Horticultural Association. A meeting of the horticulturists of tho State has been called for Friday, December 16th, for the purpose of organizing a State Horticultural As sociation.
