A very sensational thing has occurred
here which is causing ne little talk,
I' no or three years ago the remains of
a gentleman who formerly lived in Ral
eigh and who died in New York were
rcmatcd there and the ashes were
brought here in an urn of bronze and
were placed in one of the cemeteries,
a mound of earth, like a grave mound
being raised above. About a year ago
the remains of a daughter of the gen
tlenian were also cremated at . New
York, brought here in an urn of the
same kind and the ashes were placed in
a grave beside that of her father. A
few days ago some relatives and friends
of the family, being at the eemetery,
noticed that the grave mounds had been
disturbed and made some inquiries, but
were told that it was not at all proba
ble that anything had happened. A
day or two ago the grave in which the
ashes of the young lady had been de
posited was examined and it was found
that some person or persons had taken
off the turf, removed the earth and
with a pick ax had broken through the
cement which covered the opening in
which the urn with tbe ashes had been
placed and that the urn was gone. It
was also found that an attempt had
been made to thus enter the grave
wherein is deposited all that is mortal
of the father. The authorities have
taken the matter in hand and arrests
may follow. No such case has ever be
fore oocurred here.

Special to Journal.
Gr.ensboro, May 2fi.- The clton
market continues dull and the flo. '(na
tions are very small. The "Insight
Movement" to date is li.7,R70 .bales
which indicates that when the final
count is made, August St, the crop wiil
show an excess of eleven million bales.
No famine can occur on this crop, but
the supply of good apinable cotton will
not exceed the demand sufficiently, to
cause holders to press their cotton for
, sale, except on firm market;. The new
crop is doing well, except in North
Carolina, where dry weather ha pre-
' vented : germination, and retarded
growth, and bad stands are reported
from many sections. Rains however,
have fallen in the past day or two and
more cheerful reports should follow.
Acreage estimates this week show
increases of 2 to 3. per cent in planted
acreage. The Governments estimate
. , to be announced about June 4th or 5th
' awaited with much interest. ' -. '

Nothing has been heard during the

In a special interview with Estate
Chemist Kilgore it is learned that much
work has been done in the way of mak
ing maps of the soil surveys in this
state. The map of Chowan county has
just been completed. Acres equiva
lent to sixteen counties or 17 per cent,
of the whole area of the state have
been made. Under the new sy ste m the
surveyors are to be on a county basis.
The following complete surveys of
counties have been made besides Chow-

quimans. This particular arrangement
was begun about a year ago. Before
that time the topographic sheets some
times covered two counties or more.
There is a line of soil surveys from
Raleigh to New Bern, while west of
Raleigh a huge area has been surveyed
in Alamance, another in Rowan, while
further west the area around Asheville
snd Mt. Mitchell, embracing several
counties has been covered by survey.
Tbe farmers are taking interest in
this matter as the surveys show exact
ly what the soils are and make it very
easy to ascertain what the particular
crops can be grown to advantage and
what, constituents the soil needs to
make' it fit for certain crops. The State
Agricultural Department uses the sur
veys as a basis for experimental work,
in the location of test farm. These
surveys are made in co-operation with
