Farm Hands Few.
Considerable difficulty is experienced by
the farmers In Floyd county In obtaining
bends to assist them with the various
crops. It Is said the recent influx of
white and colored laborers to the cities
has made it almost impossible for the
farmers to property tend or market their
crops. The heavy fruit crops being ship

Corn From Manila, Ga.
J. M. Moore sent in to his brother.

Looks Gloomy for Cotton.
Bair.bridge Democrat: Farmers in the
eastern part of the county give gloomy
accounts of the cotton prospects. Where
the weed is well grown there Is little fruit
on it and where the weed Is small It is
turning yellow, losing its leaven and
what little fruit U contains. New crop
tweet potatoes have made their appear
ance on the local market and are a a fine
as we ever saw at this season of the year.
They retail at 30 cents per peck.
A Queer Statement.
Cuthhert Leader; The Atlanta Consti

ones. And who would be Judge of queer

Msasra. Blrbeek and Parker, the enter
prising managers of the mill, have put on
a night aa well as a day force, starting
last Monday night, the demand for the
Standard product necessitating this
doubling up. The Standard mills already

than welcome addition to Cedartown's In
dustrial pay roll.
Killed From Ambush.
Tuesday, Henry Mathews, colored, was
•hot from ambush as he was returning
from the turpentine woods near Wlllo
coochee. Death was instantaneous, as
was shown by the fact that a peach
which he hod bitten only once was still
c'utched in his fingers and the other hand
firmly fixed to the lopel of hla coat. He
also had a Winchester strapped to hla
body which he had been carrying to his
work for some time. He had threatened
several whites and colored people and
evidently expected trouble. His partner,
Cyrus Bunch, was walking with him at
the time the shot was fired and received
two painful though not serious wounds,
eoe m the grm and the ether io the leg.

Largest in Years.
The orange crop in Polk county will
be the largest In years, and it is bringing

Pensacola’s Paper Mill.
Pensacola has a paper mill in active
operation. The capital Invested In the
plant is $30,000. and the dally capacity
of the mill is twenty tons of paper, which
Is produced at about half the market
price, making the net profits from SSOO
to s*<o per day.
Peach Growers Dissatisfied.
The peach growers around Crescent City
are not very enthusiastic over the results
of their labors this season. While their
crops were all that could be wished, the
returns from the markets were far from
being satisfactory. One grower, who
shipped 2.000 boxes, said he would try it
one more season, and if the returns were
no better, he would girdle his tree*.
Alacbna's School Cetisn*.
Gainesville Sun: Superintendent Hollo
way has nearly completed his revision of
the school census recently taken In this
county, and estimates that the approxi
mate number of school children in the
county will be about 10.000. of which about
45 per cent are white and the balance
colored. The census taken by Prof. Hol
loway gives the number of students In the
county as larger than that given by the
regular census enumerators.

Fertilizer men declare that they are
selling three times as much goods around
Orlando as they sold last year. This is
due to the fact that the marked Improve
ment made by the orange trees has In
spired people With anew faith In the
industry, and they are willing to give
the trees the best possible chance. Where
there was no fruit last year the trees are
fruiting considerably this year. It is not
hard to find trees now holding from half
a box to two and three boxes to the tree
in grovea where there has been no fruit
since the old trees were cut down In 1895.
Visitors from the North who have been
going there regularly for several years

to see the improvement in the appear
ance of the trees, and also at the quan
tity of the fruit which will greet their

Damage by Lightning.
There was a chance Wednesday to cal
culate the damage done by the lightning
during the storm at Tampa Tuesday night.
The Tampa Electric Company is reported
to nave iost about $1,500 in transformers,
which were burned out during the terri
ble storm. The residence, of E. W. Mon
rose, oh Whiting street, was struck by the
lightning, and was damaged about $123, as
near as can be estimated. The inmates
were not injured in any way. The resi
dence of M. A. LeFort. on Seventh ave
nue, was touched during the storm, and
Mrs. Le Fort was severely shocked. It be
ing more than an hour before she recov
ered from the effects of the shock. A
house in East Tampa was also touched,
and almost demolished, although the ex
tent of the damage could not be learned.
The switchboard of the fire alarm service
at headquarters was entirely burned out
but was so well protected with fuses that
there was no damage.

Fort Valley, Ga., Aug. 3—A. G. Mc-
Crary had a lively experience Tuesday
wlth a wild hog in a swamp on his plan

One negro remained behind and In the
absence of the rest pursued the sow and

chase of a quarter of a mile. In a tree.
The foaming beast took up her patrol
about the base and watched for more than
an hour, when rescue came In the shape
of a posse and a pack of hounds. A dozen
shots were fired Into her carcass and sev
eral dogs were disabled. After a terrific
fight she was cornered and confined in a
stout pen built around her.
A Valuable Violin.
Fort Valley. Ga., Aug. 3.—An old, rare
and probably valuable violin is owned by
'Mr. J. H. Bryan, who Jives In this county
near this place. The instrument bears
the date of 1593, and is, therefore, now
308 years old. It is pronounced by violin
experts to be a Stradlvnrlus. The pos
sessor will not Sell the fiddle, although
he has been offered a large sum for it. He
prizes it not only as q curio, but as a fam
ily heirloom, his great grandfather hav
ing bought -the violin for a song from a
traveling stranded musician over seventy
five years ago.

REVIEW OF THE MARKETS.
CONDITION OF GENF.RAL TRADE
DIKING THE PAST WEEK.
Ylblle Some of the Markets Showed
Weak Tendencies. Bnsiness on the
Whole Was Considered Satisfac
tory—Cotton Market Qnlet and In
changed Throughout the Week.
Spirits Tnrpentine Drops From 42
on Tuesday to 40 Cents—Local and
Morning News Office, Aug. 3.
Fairly good showings were made In the
local markets during the past week,
though In some branches there was a de
cided falling off. which indicated at the
closing to-day that still further losses
may be looked for before the bottom Is
struck. The turpentine market is up
against a brick wall, as It were, due to
the fact that the demand has diminished
In anticipation of heavy receipts during
August. Until another view is taken of
the outlook. It is not likely there will be any
improvement in the demand, which may
cause the present dullness to continue in
On the whole, however, the week's
business show ing was a good one. as evi
denced by the clearing house statement,
which shows an increase in the week’s
clearings as compared with the previous
week of $1.547,508.44. The clearings for the
week were $3,582,633.17. During last year
Savannah made a fine record In point of
Increase over the previous year’s clear
ings, and'it Is believed by many that the
same, if not a better showing, will be re
peated this year.
The cotton market remained quiet and
unchanged throughout the week, with the
demand light, and the volume of business
on a small scale. The receipts for the
week were in fair volume. Until the bus
iness of the new- season begins the local
trade do not look for any great activity.
The- gains scored in the naval stores
market during the past week were not
well supported, as is shown by the weak
ness which exists towards the closing.
Spirits turpentine got as high as 42 cents
on last Tuesday, when the market was
reported firm, but it later reacted, get
ting down to 40 cents, at which the de
mand is light and the outlook for the
maintenance of the price anything but
The rosin market remained in pretty
firm condition all the week, though there
wets a loss of 5 cents on M and above on
Wednesday. On Thursday Water White
closed at $2.60 and $2.65. and Window Glass
at $2.30 ond $2.35. These were the only
changes In price. There was a fair de
mand during the week, though it was not
such as to keep factors entirely free from
accumulations. The receipts were in fair
volume. Sales for the week approxi
mated 6,000 barrels.
Reports from the country, and partic
ularly in the southern part of Georgia
and in Alabama, indicate rains which
have hindered producers some in gather
ing stuff, and have consequently had some
effect as seen in a slight lessening In the
recelpla. Labor troubles are also still
interrupting producers in the prosecution
of their work.
Upon the receipts of turpentine during
August will depend upon the condition of
the market. The past week broqght rev
elations which have cast an entire change
over the situation, and caused buyers to
come to a standstill. It is shown that
the receipts for July were 10 per cent,
ahead of any previous July. Until this
was apparent buyers accepted the belief
as practically confirmed lhat the receipts
during August tvould, as usual, be very
light. Since it is shown that* there was
such n large increase in July receipts,
however, they are backward about ac
cepting this ns true. They now believe
receipts for August will be large, and
that as a result, they will be able to get
in the market on better terms. They look
for accumulations in factors' hands that
will force them to make liberal conces
That there Is something in the conten
tion is shown by the comparatively good
receipts during the opening days of Au
gust, and the consequent falling off of
the market, which has declined, since
Tuesday, from 42 to 40 cents. In view oi
the fact that the demand is light, it is
thought probable there may be further
declines shortly, especially as there are
not evidences of a let up in the receipts.
There were few developments of Interest
In the coiton market during the past
week. The price remained unchanged, and
the tone of the market quiet, with prac
tically no business doing. The week’s re
celpis were 1,121. and the exports 2,674 up
lands and 310 sea i-dands. The day’s re
ceipts were 72, against 25 last year, and
for the season so far 1,081543. aga nst 1.-
042.799 last year. Until the beginning of
the new season little local business is
looked fer by the trade.

Market Finally Qnlet at Decline of
S to 19 Point*.
New York, Aug. 3.—The pressure of cot
ton was general except for occasional and
brief intervals of reaction, with a very
few houses buying on the reaction, the
ordinary following the belief that the
market had been oversold. Opening steady
at a decline of 2@7 points under adverse
cables the market soon became unsettled
and selling was active by all classes of
traders. Prices broke oifil6 points more.
Crop accounts were generally brilliant,
reports from the South indicated an in
creased desire to sell spot cotton while
spinner* showed a procrastinating policy,
and dry goods people reported an unsatis
factory call for cotton good*. Reports
from sections where picking is In general
progress indicate a generous harvest and
a good quality of lint. lajcal traders have
been taking this to mean an early move
ment of the new crop with only a small
volume of speculation to help bear the
burden of receipts. On this account the
feeling in local professional circles remains
benrlsh. During the afiernoon the mar
ket was particularly nervous with a wide
range of variations. Prices broke lo ihc
lowest of the day under stop orders. The
market was finally quiet at a net loes of
8 to 18 points.

Cotton in Liverpool closed l-32d lower cn
spots. Futures closed 3-64d lower on near
and 1-64 to 2-64d on distant months. These
advices considered unfavorable, conse
quently with favorable crop reports our
market opened from 3 to 5 poims lower
and the tendency downward, August again
showing the greatest weakness, selling
down to 8.51 c. or 19 points lower than pre
vious close, but rallied to 8.68 c on covering
shorts and buying by conservative inter
ests, who regard the decline sufficient in
the face of the strong statistical position.
The new crop options' also had a rally of
3to 5 points. There seems to be a good
demand arourqd 8 cents for January deliv
ery. which is holding the market. If
shorts can cover around this figure we
think it advisable to do so, for the reason
that nothing but bearish news has been
coming to the market for the past ten
days, and any bullish news would cause
quite an upturn on account of extreme
The best-posted people In the South en
gaged In the cotton trade claim that there
will be no pressure on September or Octo

for good prices as they are financially able
to do so to a greater extent than ever be
fore. We are inclined to favor the long
side after this decline.
Cotton since noon has been quiet and
featureless. The demand for January de
livery at 8 cents still prevails. A Liver

“Good business in Manchester. Expect

New York, Aug. 3-Hubbard Bros. &
Cos. say: Crop advices continue to be of
such a favorable nature from eve r y sec

that the market has shown a weaker un

tender of e:me cotton which will not de

weakened August relatively as compared
with the distant de'ivories. Some of the
Liverpool holdings which were expected
to have been shipped have been sold at
the decline. Fluctuations in that position
were most erratic, due to the differently
executed orders. A feature was the con
tinued large buying of October, which
ler.ded to support the,new crops. Weaiher
conditions throughout the South were fa

crop. No new cotton appeared at Galves

SPIRITS TURPENTINE.—The turpen
tine market dropped a cent to-day, the
opening being firm at 41 cents and the
closing firm at 40 cents, w-ith reported sales
at the latter price of 500 casks. It was
not understood that any considerable bid
ding was done after the closing, and the
current impression in some quarters was
that the undertone was rather quiet. The
demand is to what the trade would
like to have it. During the week market
conditions have been anything but favor
able, and the closing to-day tells the story
as compared with the price during the
week, which was at one time up to 42.
The market struck a donward turn
during the early days, and has continued
to drop off since, the main cause being
the complete lack of support from
ing element. The receipts for the 'week
were 10,700. against 8.569 last year, and the
exports 4.100, against 3,391 last year. The
exports went to New York 985. to the Ul

ROSINS—The rosin market closed un
changed to-day except as to the two high
er grades, which settled down firm at tho
outside price. There was a fair demand
during the week, though the market was
not on a boom by any means. The sales
to-day were 3.883 at the opening, and 883 at
the closing. The day's receipts were 5,106,
and the exports 3,300. The receipts for the
week were 25.875, against 27,754 last year,
and the exports 33,188, against 25.806 last
year. The exports went to New York
7,915, to Philadelphia 1,196. to Baltimore

STOCKS AND BONDS.
New York, Aug. 3.—Sugar. Brooklyn
Transit, Baltimore and Ohio and Union
Pacific fell somewhat into the back
ground to-day. An effort wan made by
the traders to bring forward some of tha
other railroad stocks to take the place of
these recent favorites. These did not avail
to fill up the gap left by the quietude of
mercurial specialties, but the day * deal
ings had an appearance of rather belter
distribution as a result of these new ele
ments of activity and the general tone of
the market was firm and approached to
positive strength at times.
The center of this strength was tha
granger group, which was favorably af
fected by the Bhow of Increased earning*
for the fourth week In July by the St.
Paul system. The showing was particu
larly effective because it compared with
n very high level of earnings last year,
and because St. Paul has rather been
looked upon as the leader of the reaction
ary tendency In railroad earnings Incident
to the falling off In general bu-lness. Thera
was no special feature of traffic to explaia
