Last Wednesday low ie's first con fession of weakness was made at a rally in the lalx-rnai le at Zion City. "A lot of you pivple have cash in your pockets," Ikiwie said, to his fol lowers. "Oig dow n and get it out. It is tiod's and we need it in his work. You an' cowards if you do iiol give it up. )coMt it." Howie ti Iked in the same strain for more than an hour, tears glistening on his chocks as he told of the financial straits iu which the Zion industries found themselves. Instead of frightening many into depositing, this appeal sent a long line of people to the bank on Friday, where they lined up at the paying teller's w indow, drawing out their money. than $3,iAH) was de posited in the lank on Friday, while the amount w ithdrawn was twice as much. Late in the afternoon A. W. liraham of Waukegan tried to with draw his account of $300 and was told he would have to give 30 days' notice before lie could get his money. Yesterday another effort was made by Ifctvviu to get funds but the de positors who appeared were few and the deposits were chielly in trivial amounts. Today Iowie asked the lueiiiUrrs of Zion more urgently than ever for moiiev. He declared that he must have .5()0,IOO without dulay. In the efforts to remedy the condi tion of affairs at Zion City hundreds of letters were sent out daily to Howie's followers in other parts of the country. In these letters all SafOafr Feed pale girls on Scott's Emulsion. We do not need to give all the reasons why Scott's Iumilsion restores the strength an.! flesh and color of good heal ih to those who suffer from sick blood. The fact that it U the best preparation of Cod Liver Oil, rich in nutrition, full of healthy stimulation is a suggestion as to why it does what it does. Scott's Emulsion presents Cod Liver Oil at its best, fullest in strength, least in taste. Young women in their " teens " are permanently cured of the peculiar disease of the blood which shows itself in paleness, weakness and nervous ness, by regular treatment with Scott's Emulsion. It is a true blood food and is naturally adapted to the cure of the blood sickness from which so many young women suffer.

Addreaa Dr. TJartman, President of The Ilarunaa Sanitarium, Columbos, 0 Howieites aro urged, almost com manded, t sell their farms, stores and everything else and come at once to Zion City an 1 take up the work of the church, it is declared that the employees of the manufac turing industries have not been paid in f n 'in four to six weeks. What little they have received is said to have lieen paid entirely in the Zion City coupon Uks. Karly in the week before last I low ie made a trip through the various shops, lie told his followers and others that they must either wait for their salaries or must endure a substantial cut in wages. This was agreed U). The receivers, with their attorneys and Custodian Ucdicske, with six deputy marshals, went out to Zion City tonight to serve iiHn Howie the notice of the iwctvership. He dieske and his deputies went to the hank, whilfl the others called ujioii How ie at his residence. As the otli ceis were, alsuit to demand admis sion to the tank, a man ran from a rear door, t Mie of the deputies over took him, and a second man came running from the bank, shouting:' "let me have those papers ; t will get away with them. ' Redieske threatened to plan them under ar rest unless they returned at once to the bank, which they did. He then placed the bank, and the three men in it, under a guard. While this was taking place at the bank, the receiv ers and the attorneys called upon Howie and read to him the petition and order which placed Zion in the hands of a receiver. Appeals to His Followers to Raise Funds. Chicago Dtiati'h, aril. A great gathering of the Howieites was held at the taWnacle in Zion City last night. It was called by Howie for the purpose of starting a fund of $1,0110,000 with which to pay off all the indebtedness- that hangs over Zion Cilv and himself. The outpouring of his followers was not one to bring chirr to the heart, of the general overseer of Zion. Thfl Uitx macle seats 6,000 people and usually all these seats are taken at special niwetings called by IViwio. 1 ast night the hall was not over half lilled and tire gathering was not as enthusiastic as might be desired by a man who was in immediate need of funds. Howie gave to his followers a statement of the financial situation of Zion City, told them that the as sets were ample, the only trouble being that he was not able to realize upon them at once. "The fiesh pots are the cause of our coming here tonight," he said. "They are a joke to me. For an hour the dogs have thought they led me. Hut, beloved, we are going to kick them out now. We will kick them out for all eternity. "Those devilish parasites, the re porters, came to me today. They wanted to know what I would say to you tonight. Did they learn from me?" t Cries of "Ko, no." " "I tell you we will run them out of Zion. I knew they were coming before they attempted to pollutp Zion. 1 knew it by the stench that came ahead of them " It is declared by the receivers for Zion City that the affairs of Dowie are in a worse condition than at first appeared. Itcceiver Curric said to night : "I believe that Dr. Dowie will be able to pay off his obligations in time. Just bow long this time will be a something that ww will But be able to tell until we have made a thorough investigation of alt bis af fairs.

"How would you like to bundle up and start to the war as we did forty years ago?" said Mr. Jas. A. Marsh to an old Confederate comrade the other day. "When I left my wife and two-year-old boy," he continued, "to start on the journey there was a peculiar feeling of sadness that no one can comprehend who has not ex perienced it. Men may draw upon their imagination and think they know how it would be, but in in stances of this kind the imagination fails, and a man doesn't know how it is until he tries it." This parting with dependent loved ones at home to go into a deadly conllict, the un easy feeling about the comfort of wife and children, the uncertainty of ever seeing their faces again, made such parting scenes the saddest and most trying feature of the war, and it is natural that in their rcllcctioiis these scenes come more vividly to the minds of the old soldiers than anything else.

In this report no account has been taken of the quan tity of linters obtained by the cotton seed mills by reginiiing cotton seed. but statistics of such cotton will he included in the final report for this season. This reHrt will lie followed by two others showing Ihe quantity of cotton ginned from Ihe growth of this year. and to January 10, 1'.Nll Xo estimates are given of the amount of cotton remaining un ginned. The census agents were asked to submit these estimates, but the census bureau has not even com puted them as returned, turning them over to the bureau of statistics of the Department of Agriculture to aid that office in the annual estimate of the cotton crop to he issued to morrow. The reason for this as an nounced by the census bureau, is that when the final reor!s were re ceived a year ago "it apeared that the estimates of the agents made in (t,.iber were six and four-tenths ht cent, short of the actual crop grow n." A margin of error so large as that is equal to the difference le- tween a short crop and a normal crop and under Ihe pivuliar condi tions existing in two cotton markets today, the census bureau does not feel warranted in publishing any fig ures in winch so large an element of error may exist again. 1 he policy of oHieration Mwcen the census and the Agricultural Ikpartment is adopted on the recommendation of Secretary Cortclyoti of the Heparl niftit of Commerce and Lilior, lo avoid conllicting reports as far as possible. Ihe census bureau announces that it ought to be possible in thclanu- srv lit report to cover luacticallv the entire cotton crop of l!K)3 l'.MM, and this will U two months earlier than we were able to do a vear ago. It is to be regretted, in view of the cotton situation, that no canvass cor- resimniling to the one now reported was made by the census office a year ago." As to the call for estimates of cot ton iinginued in the several counties, although it was not intended to use them in this reMirt,thu bureau says: Wo desire to ascertain hy a practi cal test, whether it is ossible for the special agents to make such esti mates, at different periods during the progress of Ihe liarvest, which can be Mind upon as sufficiently ac curate to be of value to the public, It is possible that with their llicreas iug exerience these agents can come nearer to the fact than in 11102.
