Of course, my conclusion was merely n '-hasty genernlintlon, and was due mainly to the popular belief. My interest in the mutter was roused by the rather rirm stnte- ment made by Ih Mississippi stales man, and so I nuclei a series of ob servations, the result of which have been a revelation, for they have up set the Opinions of ol lifetime.
