While Sir Thomas Lipton repeatedly

and who knew the challenger as a

doubts as to Shamrock HI.'s ability to

Saturday beat Shamrock III in com
manding style, in exacting nine min
utes, actual time, or seven minutes and
three seconds after deducting the one
mlntite and fifty-seven seconds which
the defender concedes to Sir Thomas
Llpton's third challenger, on account
of the sailing plan of the measurements.
The natical sharps, who had already
made up their minds on Thursday that
the Reliance could take the measure of
the challenger in any kind of weather,
regard the day's test as conclusive, al
though they hardly anticipated so
overwhelming a victory. The race even
dampened the ardor of Sir Thomas,
who insisted, after Thursday's fluke,
that his confidence in the beautiful
craft designed by Fife was greater than
ever. Still, like a truo sportsman, he
does not acknowledge defeat, and
hopes for better luck next time. The
signal criticism he and his friends
make of Saturday's race is that the
nnlv shift of the wind which, occurred
was to the advantage of the defending
yacht. As this shift of the wind occur
red on the windward beat, even grant
ing that it accounted for Reliance's
lead at the turn, the time the Defender
made on the run home was more tnan
ample to have given her the race. It
must be conceded, however, that the

boat in beating to windward, perhaps
the- ablest craft in this respect that

12 miles the single-stickers raced like
a team of horses, and during tnat por
tion of the duel the patriots maae no
attempt to conceal tneir nervousness.
The racing conditions were ideal. A
thin haze hung over the Jersey shore,
obstructing the view of the spectators
gathered there, but out on the ocean
race-course the sea was flooded with
sunshine from a vault of fleckless blue.

Coodltloa of Cottoa.
The reat taaturinc rotten crop Is
probably more generally late than has
ben any crop for many years. It.
therefore, is an Interesting probkm
a to what extent and how Ute
may count on the "njuarrs" or
'form now assuming shap and yet
to appear. It has always bee a de
batable question how late in the fall
blooms may b counted on to prodac
well matured open bolls. Of course.
It depends finally on the date of the
first killing frost a cold suSciectly
severe to freeze the untimely and Im
mature bolls: and to some extent on
tho character of the weather imme
diately following. Every farmer is
sunmxM to know about wnai lime
such killing weather usually occurs.
It varies considerably, some years
ormrrinr a month, or eren six weeks
later than In other. I remetuber the
abnormal season of 1S49. There ere
onlv a few moderate freezes between
January 1 and March 1. The farmers
planted their crops of corn and cotton
Fome weeks in advance of the uttl
time. But on Aoril 15 a severe freeze
including sleet and snow In some fcec
tions of Georgia, destroyed every
stalk of cotton and corn and rvlned
the wheat and oat crops.
However, the crops were again
planted. the seasons following,
throughout the summer and fall were
all that heart could desire, and th
"killing frost" did not occur where I
was until late In December. Indeed,
I remember teeing cotton blooms on
the living plants on December 25!
The result was very fine yields of
both corn and cotton. Within the
last thirty-five or forty years I recall
but three or four years In which tho
traditional "top crop" amounted to
anything, although ita prsroUe waj
often used by the "bears" to pull
I down the market prices.

nntnKtnklnir ptiwrlmrnts. or rather
observations, made In South Carolina,

"Forms appearing May 24 made

The reported results conclude as
"As killing frost occurs about No
vember 17, it would seem that the
latest blooms that can be counted oa
would be about September 1.
It does not appear, however, that
the concluding observation is qulto
justified by the previously stated ob
served results. It assumes that a
boll must become an "open boll be

not necessarily true, and as a matter
of fact Is not usually true. In other
words, a full-grown, well-matured boll
