No Time To Plunge
In Growing Cotton
j Sumter Item.
In sections of Georgia, Alabama
urn! Mississippi, where favorable
weather conditions resulted in the
production of comparatively good
cotton crops last year and the year
before. Him that nian is the spiri
tual child of God, a great many old
1 ine all-cot ton farmers were misled
into believing that they had whip
ped the boh weevil and that they need
no longer worry about diversification
Therefore they planted cotton this
year and neglected other crops. The
weather conditions were bad for cot
ton and fine for the weevils, conse
quently thj all-cotton farmers are
right now in worse condition than
they have mer been since the weevils
invaded those sections, Exceptional
ly favorable weather is the only
Ih'ng that pn-mit? the production of
a good cotton crop on large acreages
and the farmers, of Sumter county
and all South Carolina may as wel1
make up their minds to this thor
oughly demonstrated fact. If the
weather conditions in 194 are as fa
vorable to the weevils as in 1922
Sumter county will have a eotton
crop as short ns in that disastrous
year Cotton is a gamble in bo'l weev
il sections, and the foresighted farm
ers will not risk too much on cotton

HEAVY TOLL IN DEATH
Cancer took a toll of lives in Amer

for the registration area of the Unit

the population of the country give
the total number as 80,938 with an
estimate of 95,000 for the whole
country. The death rate per 100,000
of population was 86.8, a slight in
crease over 1521 when the rate was
86.0. Tuberculosis took 90,452 lives
in the registration area last year and
the death tale was 97.0 per 100,000
Deaths from cancer and other

Collins, charged with the murder last
year of Uray Smith, nephew of Isa

•» verdict at Mcrganton thji week of
manslaughter as to Smith and Mrs.

a daughter of Mrs. Collins, who had
been included in the hill of indict
ment. Sentences of six months each
in jail were passed by Judge James
I.. Webb, who has been presiding at
this term yf Durke court, which ad
The case has been long drawn out,
the recent trial being one of a num
ber to grow out of the finding of the
lifeless body of Uray Smith at the
home of his uncle, Isaiah Smith, with
whom he lived, over a year ago. Two
neighbors were first arraigned, and,
•here being it..sufficient evidence to
'^old them, the matter lay quiet fo-.
-pveral months., during which time
Solicitor R I.. Huffman, continued his
nvestigations. I ast January Mary
Collins, cousin of the murdered man,
vas arrested and after spending a
nigjit in jad sent for the solicitor and
made an alleged confession that she
killed young Smith in defense of her
honor. After a lew weeks Mary
made another “confession," saying
that she had thought to take the
whole blame on herself and shield
her mother, but that she had decided
“to tell the truth", that Mrs Collins
killed Uray Smith.
Following their release from jail on
bond in Marco, Mary repudiated all
former tales and at the Augsut term
he solicitor brought an indictment
for murder against her. Because of
'llness of witnesses it was continued
until this lerm of court, and all the
cases consolidated in a joint indict
ment of Mrs Collins, Mary and Isaiah
Smith. They have been on trial since
The defense relied mainly on es
•ablishing an absolute alibi for both
’saiah and Mrs Collins, that they ,
were at Glen Alpine, a few miles
from their heme, when the killing oc
curred, but admitted they did not
'cave until 3 oclock The state’s prin
cipal witness, John Benfieid, swore i

‘ion of the Smith home about 2
o'clock -and m°t the defendants leav
ing home about 2l» minutes after
wards Evidence against the defen
dants wus in'roOnced in the facts
that it was Isaiah’s gun that was
found on the premises and that there
were bloody garments and blood in
