- -. Cotton Letter. s j
Special to Journal. s
, Greensboro, Feb. 8. Since our letter
of Jany 27th cotton has made a further
decline of J cent per pound, but' there
is Bome recovery and the market closes
steady, 25 points up from ( the lowest.
The census .department estimates that
there is yet to gin 254,000 bales. If
this estimate should prove correct, and
the amount reported ginned . is not un
der stated, it would mean a growth
estimating 'inters and samples as 250,
000, or 10,600,0CO bales. We can see
no "reason to abandon our estimates of
Jl, 000,000 bales commercial crop, but
while trade continues good we are not
inclined to be too bearish on the decline
This lowering of prices will have some
tendency to reduce the contemplated
acreage, and perhaps cause less ex
travagance in the use of commercial
fertilizers.- . Receipts continue free,
and mofe' than sufficient to supply the
demand. It is thought however, thatt
this supply is coming largely from
hedged dealers, and discouraged mer
chants, as the farmers are holding
rather firmly. In tho natural order of
things we should have some further
improvement from this depression."

(Special Correspondence.)-
Greensboro, Feby 3. The testimony
of G. W. Samuel. - the .revenue officer
on trial in the Federal court here was
i . . .1 a i : ta..:-.
cross examination District Attorney
showed that stills which had been run
ning for months while Samuel was in
charge were easily found when new '
officers arrived in 1905 and that eleven
were destroyed irt two days," among
them being three steam distilleries
operated by Jim Combes and his two
brothers. : Solicitor General Hayes,
who has been present during the whole
of the trial, aiding in the prosecution,
was called to Washington last night,
to consult with AttorneyGeneral Moody
over some important briefs in prepara
tion for the Supreme Court. He will
return Monday. - 4 .
.: In saying the mental anguish claim
in the W. I. Young case, here, was
new in this State, " this correspondent
was advertant to the numerous decis
ions and recoveries against; telegraph
companies for failure to deliver tele
grams announcing serious illness or
death of relatives. Rut in tho case
of W. , I. Young's suit against the
Southern Railway, the mental- anguish
arose from faulty performance of a
contract and the peculiar agony of de
layed schedules while trying to reach a
desperately sick wife - and child, was
the principle in the case, which also
contained a claim for recovery of $720
already paid out for a special , train.
The point is a new one in North Caro
lina. The verdict for the $72i) and ths
additional sura of $500 damages for the
mental anguish caused will bring the
matter squarely up to the Supreme
Court for decision. If somebody could
get a verdict for mental anguish caused
by lying bulletin boards as to the ar
rival and departure of trains it would
bring about a speedy reform' in this
aggravating nuisance, and serious bad
example to the rising generation by in
culcating disrespect for telling the
truth. . : v.' . ;
There are well defined rumors here
that an effort is being made to induce
Rev. W. W Moore, President of the
Union Theological Seminary of Rich
mond, to return to his native State and
become pastor of the. First 'Presbyteri

caused by the transfer of Rev. Dr. E.

The small but active band of Social
ists in Greensboro have arranged to
have another one of . their celebrities
speak in Greensboro. It is Mother
Jones this time. She will speak in the
court house next Thursday night Her
discourse will be along the same line
as was that of Eugene V. Debs last
Saturday. '
Greensboro Female College has inau
gurated a series of lectures by well
known men, open to the people of the
city at large as well as to the students.
The first lecture of the series was de
livered last.nightby.lDr. C. D. Mclver,
president of the State Normal and In
dustrial College. He was introduced
by Mrs. Lucy Robertson, president" of
the College. Dr.. Mclver's address was
a discussion of the relations of culti-
vated and educated young women to

- Greensboro, Feb. 5.. The little baby-
waif left here by a .strange woman six
weeks.ago to be cared for by Nancy
Holt, a negress living a mile beyond
the city limits, was taken in possession
Saturday night by officers of the law
under a writ of habeas corpus, and
proceedings for guardianship instituted
by W, B, Streeter, superintendent of
the Children's Home Society. The of
ficer found the child in a small room in
which four negro women slept and
lived, and ha says "the baby slept at
night between two of the women, It
was possession of Mr Streeter
who will take care of it until the hear
ing by the judge on the return day of
the written das from service. ' . J-."-
The news here that District Attorney
Holton had been given assurance that
he would be re-appointed district attor
ney was not surprising here, where
his great work in prosecuting frauds
against the'1' government ; has been
known perhaps better than anywhere
else, as most of the big revenue trials
for the past three years have been in
the Federal court at Greensboro. Hoi-
ton's great ability and zeal in ferreting
out as well as prosecuting the violators
of the revenue laws, has been recog
nized for some time,' and rumors that
the whiskey .ring inside the republican
organization would be able to turn him
out was always discounted.
, There was the usual short Saturday
morning session.of j Federal court, and
none but character witnesses were ex
amined in the Samuel case. Deputy
collector T. L. Green, who -was under
going cross examination by the district
attorney when court adjourned Friday
did not get a chance to complete his
testimony and was on the stand again
this morning. The character witnesses
were made, a -cross-examination l y Mr.
Holton, to take up so much time, it
was Saturday noon recess hour before
they were disposed of. .' Aside from
character witnesses the defence so far
has had only witness to testify who
was not a revenue officer, or who had
been a revenue officer ' - " ' .
' There was a mild sensation here
when thelWilkesboro train arrived after
Federal court had adjourned Saturday
and there Btcpped frim the train the
much discussed and ' long ; looked for
James Combes, whose name and ex
ploits as a blockader and ostensible in-
t former hive figures so largely in the
t trial ofthe revenue officers, especially
in connection with officer Samuel now
on trial for alleged filing of false in-
' formers checks in the name of Jim
Combes and conspiracy with Combes to
1 defraud the government Combes was
indicted at tho special term of the
Knd'JUiy last September With the of-
ficera for al,ced conspiracy to defraud
V government, and one'of the counts
against Samuel in his trial now is col-
lusion with Combes, a distiller to tl'ow
him to run contrary to law. " ;

Eruption Broke Out in Spots All

Medicine Did no Good Cured at
Expense of only $1,25 and Now
' "Some time ago I wrote you for a
book on the Cuticura Remedies and:
received it O. K. and went and bought
the Soap, Ointment, and Pills.- They did
me more good than any medicine I ever
used. They cured me of my skin disease,
and I am very thankful to you. Mv
trouble was eruption of the akin, which
broke out in spots all over my body,
and caused a continual itching which
nearly drove me wild at times. I got
medicine of a doctor, but it did not cure
me, and when I saw in a paper your
ad.. I sent to you for the Cuticura book
and I studied my case in it. I then
went to the drug store and bought one
cake of Cuticura Soap, one box of Cu
ticura Ointment, and one vial of Cuti
cura Pills. From the first application
I received relief. I used the first set
and two extra cakes of Cuticura Soap,
and was completely cured. I had
Buffered for two years, and I again
thank Cuticura for my cure. If you
wish, you may : publish this. Your
friend forever, Claude N.Johnson, Maple
