Hodgin was arrested by Chief B. C. Hodgin and Deputy Sheriff J. L. Parrish of this city on a charge of the murder of John Lovett, whose body was found in a terribly mangled condition by a section master on the morning of the 18 th near Mendenhall's crossing, on the main line of the Southern Rail way, several miles northeast of High Point. "Your correspondent knew for over a week that Hodgin was under strong suspicion and that circum stantial evidence, it was said, seemed to point strongly to his guilt. For some reason or other the authorities were a little slow to take .the in itiative in the matter. This may have been for want of evidence which they thought was lacking when the man gled body was found. Evidently Lov ett was run over during the night But it was also apparent that : the man must have been dead for several hours before being placed on the railroad tracks, as there was scarcely any loss of blood. This, and several other very suspicious circumstances, led Chief Ridge and his assistants to the conclusion that there was foul play. And, when all the evidence circumstantial and otherwise is in. it will no doubt prove that they were correct in their surmises. "The motive for the murder of Lovett, if murder it was, was the robbery of $138, which was known to have been on the person of the dead man, and which was missing when his body was found. "Hodgin was brought direct to the police station early this morning by the officers, while his daughters drove on to their work.

Southern Pacific Railroad officials here were not Informed to-day of the finding of thirty-six sticks of dyna mite in a cache on the track at Ell wood, Cal., a few moments after train No. 18, a south-bound passen ger, had passed the switch. Parts of the dynamite was found pulverized entirely, having been ground -by the car wheels. The dynamite was found within a few miles of the bridge where a similar cache was planted when President Taft's train passed October 17. Our farmers have been acting on this advice for a number of years in the face of the daily decreasing fer tility of their lands under this sys tem. Mr. W. A. Marsh.of Union County, took this advice literally,! sowed oats, cut and removed them,! then sowed cowpeas on the oat stub ble and cut these for hay when ma ture. This practice was continued till his land would not produce a crop even of peas. Examples could be multiplied where the pea crop has been removed year after year with disastrous results. Indeed, It now seems that the surest method of de pleting the fertility of the soil Is to remove a crop of cowpea vines from it every year for a few years in suc cession. The real explanation of this phe nomenon has finally been discovered. In an exhaustive series of tests and experiments conducted by a number of our best experiment stations It has been found that the amount .of nitro gen, etc.; left In the roots and stubble of the cowpea plant Is not one-third but about one-tenth of that found In the explanation 'of the running down of average soils by the annual re moval 6f the pea crop. Another; and, perhaps soils by the annual removal of the pea crop. v Another, and, per haps th 9 leading factor, is that all the organic 'matter is removed from the soil for a series, of 'years by this method and thus all bacterial life is driven from the land which Is there by rendered; dead. These 'dead soils are not necessarily robbed ' of their mineral plant foods, bowexer, as will be demonstrated by plowing down a cowpea crop or a good of rye for a year or two in succession. One ton of green cowpea vines contains about 5.5 pounds of nitro gen; 2 pounds of phosphate; and 6 pounds of potash. It is an easy mat- ter, on average soil, to get a growth! of 12 tons of some one of the rank' growing varieties per acre, which will cure up into three tons of hay. " The following composition of green cowpea vines compared with compost- Railroad Condtttcor Kills Father aid Mother-ln-Law, Shoot Wife, TVs Suicidee. Parkersburg, W. Va.. Oct It Carroll L.

Negro Who Assassinated Georgia Merchant is Lynched. Augusta, Ga.; Oct. 28. Dave Walker, the negro farm hand charg ed with the assassination of C. S.

Fresh horse manure . . 8.7 1.9 7.3 With this yield per acre there would be produced on a ten-acre field 120 tons of green peavines which, if cut to pieces with a sharp disk har row, plowed under, and thoroughly incorporated with the whole soil stra-! turn, would add to this field about? 6S0 pounds of nitrogen and render! available 240 pounds of phosphate and about 750 pounds of potash. By thus using the pea crop as green manure the farmers gets from the air as much ntrogen in the first ten Inches of the soil of his 10-acre field as he would get from 86 tons of manure or from 16 tons of an 8 2- 2 fertilizer. He gets as much phosphate rendered available to the succeeding crop as he would get from 150 tons of manure or from 1 1-2 tons of an 8 22 fertilizer. The potash thus rendered available is equal to that obtained from over 100 tons of manure, or from nearly 19 tons of an 822 fertilizer. And the humus obtained from this amount of vegetable matter turned Into thp soil will be sufficient to feed bacte rial life for years to komo and will add immensely to mechanical condi tions and water-holding capacity of the land. -VfiBSIBfi .
