"Conditions In tho South appoar
to bo steadily improving. Cotton
prices nro gradually growing bettor,
but tho most hopqful sign Is In tho
evidence that tho ono-crop pjnn will
eoon bo" thrown Into tho discard.' Tho
sovoro lesson of" tho past year or
two has not been In vain, as evidenc
ed In many sections of tho South.
Cotton may remain king for years to
Conio, but his subjects will bo far
moro cosmopolitan than ovor known
boforo south of tho Mason and Dixon
lino, all of which will spell a stead
ier and moro rapidly growing pros
perity. Hotter In tho Kant
Business conditions In tho Central
and Eastern iStatcs aro cortalnly far
hotter thnn when I Mas In tho East

not scorn to ho a silver lining to
any of tho clouds that shut out the
vfow In nil directions. Thoro la no
boom prcsont or In flight bo far as
I could' judge, although in coriam
. rtlrocyqnfl,, t has. this appearance,
but oven In theso lines tho fact Is
being brought home that European
conditions may not and it Is hoped
1 will not continuo another 12 monthr.

a far bottor fooling and whllo In

This week Capt. Holland was
awakened about 2 o'clock In tho

gered him greatly, but he was suf
ficiently awakened to see a big re
flection and getting up discovered

captain got up In a hurry and,niaii7
aged to oxtlngulsh the flames beforo
any great damage was done. A
field near tho structuro had been '
burned over and it sooms that tho,
firo was not ontiroly out and had
revived and crept up to the pig
house, Mr. Hurd nays tho captain
