This cotton was planted on land
that is of a very light sandy nature
and very poor. The preparation
of the soil was not thorough and
the seed was planted too late, caus
ing poor and slow start. The
fertilizer used was 000 lbs. 8-4-4
per acre. All lands prepared, ferti
lized, planted, cultivated, housed
and weighed alike, and if there is
anything to cause a greater yield
In one variety over that of another,
except the seed, we are unable to
see it.

As a citizen, he was correct in
life, just und true in his relations

than u friend and companion: and
his frankness, sincerity, and never

enjoyable and desirable.
With a charity as broad as the

The Dixie Theatre
"Are you going tonight?" is the
question one hears all through the
davs now. A stranger asking
"WheJt?" is told that the Dixie
Theatre under the management of
Thrower andFowdeti is open night
ly and the best in the world of mov
ing pictures is exhibited in
the City Opera House where there
is plenty of room and comfortable
seats. This is an attractive in
novation for Williataston, especial

set not to mention the older people.
On opening night a large crowd
was present and the exhibition was
fine-. Just before the ciose a slight
accident happened to ihe machine
and the cry of "Fire" was heard
from the gallery. A colored boy
jumped from the gallery to the first
floor in his excitement and this
caused a sudden alarm. Many
men in the hali jumped over the
B£gta and ran down the stairway,
