Rastus. Mortality in the Senate. The number of deaths in the Jnited States Senate since the beginning of this congress has been unusual and start ling. The two venerable senators from Alabama John T. Morgan and Edmund W. Pettus died last summer during the recess. Stephen R. Mallory, of Florida, succumbed to illness on December 23, 1907. Asbury C. Latimer, of South Carolina, died on February 20, 1908: Redfield Proctor, of Vermont, on March 4; William Pinkney Whyte, of Mary land, the NeBtor of the Senate.on March 17, and William J. Bryan, of Florida, on March 22. Mr. Bryan was the young est member of the senate and had served less than three months, while Mr. Whyte was the oldest, had served in the senate three different periods and had entered the upper house before any of his colleagues. Seven deaths within the year in a body with only ninety-two members make a remarkable mortality record. Applied in the house of representatives, such a ratio would involve the loss of thirty members. Yet the house rarely loses by death in one congress more than ten or twelve members. Dr. Thatcher and wife were called to Macon Sunday, by a telegram an nouncing the death of his brother-in-law, Wm. H. Sears, which occurred that morning. He was one of the prominent attorneys of that part of our state, and conspicuous as one of the Democratic leaders in that section. He served two terms in the state senate from the Macon district. Iowa's Significant Action. The progress of the Iowa idea was made manifest in the Republican state convent ion, when both sides made a grand stand play for the privilege nf- beings first with the idea. There were diverce reports as to how the Iowa convention would probably be brought to a stand still over this question of tariff reform. It was supposed that the stand patters, being determined to indorse Senator Al liBon, would include in their indorse ment also something that was not the idea of Iowa. But the standpatters un der6tood better than they were given credit for understanding. They could read the wiiting on the wall. And rather than lose the indorsement of Al lison they came to the indorsement of tariff reform, and there was no contest whatever, only a refusal on the part of the Cummins men to floor Allison. The interesting point iB that it was not the "Iowa idea," that slogan of four years ago, which was seized up on llatber than indorse the idea of Cummins, which has become state and national property, the convention went to Ohio and took bodily the plank of the Ohio platform and bodly inserted it in the Iowa platform. This was pos sible because, since it was determined to indorse Mr. Taft, of Ohio, for president without any division, an Ohio plank would 'appear to go peaceably along with him. So that Iowa stands pledged to "a revision of the tariff by a special session of congress " All this was brought so peaceably that even Iowa, where if anywhere it would have appeared that to stand pat would be popular amoug the "elder statesmen." on the so contiguous to that devoted to St. Pat, there was no divis ion between the progressives and the stationary. The outcome is significant, when tha history of the past four years is remembered. House Cleaning time is here. We are ready for you. We have Bon Ami, the great cleaner-cleans and pol ishes.

You'll be able to get plenty this year, it the predictions of the horticulturists are true. Never before, they saj, was there a better chance for a bumper crop in all kinds of fruit, from apples on through the list. Berries, too, are to" be plentiful. Several fruit growers have expressed fears that the peach blossoms have been advanced too rapidly by the warm weather of March, but horticul turists who have made a study of the fruit crops this year say their is no danger. "Never was there a better chance for a great fruit crop," Silas Bucher, a fruit grower of this city, said this morning. "Why, the peach trees could afford to lose 90 per cent of their blooms an yet produce a crop that would load the branches. This is true of all fruit trees. Apples, pears, plums everything is in the best of condition, and if there isn't unusally cold weather in this month, the fruit pickers will be busy next summer and fall. March Weather. March 1008 was. to eome extent, very much like that of 1907, though not quite so warm. The mean temperature fur the month is 40 degreeH-for liWJS it wuh 44 and in 1007 it wa 47. March 1007 however, was a record breaker in hot days on the 2lst and 25th it was 90 de grees and was never beaten her but once, which was on the 2'Jth in 189.'), when it was 1)1 degrees. The coldest March day ever known here was in 1890 when it went to 14 below zero on the 11th. The month has beon unusualh dr thern being less than an inch reported, while the normal fall is two inches Wo had no snow during the month, whi e the normal snow fall is G inches. So the month as a whole has been out of the ordinary. The extremes for the month of March, 1908, have been: Max. Min. 12 7G 2 22 14 73 7 22 15 70 8 22 25 83 9 n; 26 72 29 24 Mean maximum, 50. Mean minimum, 32. Mean, 44. Rainfall, .34 of an inch: greatest in 24 hours was .18 of an inch on the 30th. In In 1907 we had only .30 o!' an inch, and in 1906 only 4G of an inch. So it will be seen that the three past March's have been unusually lacking in rainfall. In 190( we had 13 inches of snow, ar.d in 1907, we had 5 inches, while March 1908 we had none. On the 2 1st a greater portion of Ten nessee was under a blanket of snow. On the 27th, Chilapa, Mexico, was de stroyed by an earthquake; following the shock, the ruins took fire, ai d the entire city was almost wholly destroyed; near by cities also were badly wrecked, and some 200 lives were lost. The towns de stroyed, together with the population were: Chiilpancingo. 100 miles from Mexico City, 8,000; Chilapa, 115 miles from Mexico City, 12,000; Conception, 100 miles from Mexico City, 1,000: Tetil ilia, 100 miles from Mexico City, 11,000; Coatepec, 100 miles from Mexico City, 1,000. Reports as to the number of dead are uncertain, but the latest figures show that from 200 to 300 i ersons were killed in Chilapa alone. In the City of Mexico it is reported that 200 buildings are in ruins. One of the peculiar features of the earthquake is that the disturbance ex tended in a straight line just west of the 99th parallel for 500 miles north and south, beginning at Mier, just south of the Rio Grande, in the State of Nuevo Leon, and ending at Chilapa, in the Stato of Guerrero. That part of the country which suff ered the greatest loss is about 100 miles south of the City of Mexico and the vol cano of Popocatapeti. This region is volcanic. April 15, 1907, the country about Chil apa and Cbilpancingo suffered greatly from an earthquake. Israel finds skippers in the deacon's cheese. April 21st at opera house.
