If more girls forgot to mail the letters they write they would have less to worry over. Lots of woman's heads are not as long as their tongues.

A BIG LAND DEAt Generally cloudy .and warm | weather N prevailed during t h e ] week with moderate to. heavy j showers in the western and north- rn counties and light showers over the eastern and southern, ounties. The mean temperature for the week was about five degrees above normal in the western portion of the state and about' nine degrees above normal in the eastern portion. Favorable conditions prevailed over the southern half of the state, where planting is nearing completion and croos show good stands and are making a rapid growth; chopping.cotton is in full progress and much corn has been given its first plowing. ,, Over the northern half of the state upland crops generally show satisfactory stands and are growing well, but many fields are be-, coming grassy as a result of frequent rains and lack of cultivation; the boil is still wet and many lowlands remain unplowed and unplanted wiCli the prospect that a few lowlands cotton fields will have to -be abandoned for season. In the northern one- third of the 'state only about three-fourths of the cotton has been'plantcd a n d in a number of northern counties comparatively a small a m o n n t of corn has been ''planted; Oats arc maturing rapidly and harvest has commenced south. ' Minor crops are generally doing well. Irish potatoes are very promising. Pastures'are in excellent condition. As a rule fruit prospects are only fair and a light crop of peaches is generally indicated'. Appreciates League. Hand Book. Eastman,' Gardiner Co. Dispose of 14,500 Acres. One of the biggest timber 'deals ,in the history of this section has just been cortsuraated, by'which Eastman, Gardiner/ Co., disposed of 14,500 acres of pine titn- b=r for $194,000. ;; . The.timber sold lies in the "Sullivari Hollow" district, south of the Gulf and Ship Island railroad. .The purchaser was W. S. F. Tatum, of Hattiesburg, acting as agent for the Lumber and Mineral Co., of Hot Springs, s N. C', which company owns the saw mill at Mt. Olive Jand has considerable other timber interests in that section. It will be interesting to know that Eastman, Gardiner Co., own at present 175,000 acres of the finest pine timber .in this state. A reasonable estimate of the value of this timber is $3,500,000. They are using up in their saw mill here about 5,000 acres per year. Of the 175,000 acres owned 150,000 acres of it, or enough to run the mill for twenty-five years, is sufficiently near Laurel to be manufactured into lumber at this place. They, too, are buying more pine land all the time. In the territory contiguous to Laurel this company owns upwards of 25,000 acres of stump lands. This' land has had the timber taken off and is the finest kind of farming land. It is their intention to put this land on the market soon at a price which will sell it, and will certainly induce a number of the right kind of immigrants to come to this section.
