Seme Tall Cotton.
A Washington' county farmer
brought the skeleton • of *a cotton
stalk to the court house Tuesday*
which measured about eleven feet
in length. When placed on exhi-
bition in (ho district court room it
became the brunt of nimy a jest,
and some went so far as to ascribe
a political significance to its pres-
ence by saying "it was tbo longest
polo" that would be used to knock
November persimmon s.
District Attorney W. E Muynard
apropos of the occasion told of a
squirrel hunt in a Bastrcp county
cotton patch where tbe stalks weie
so tall that No. 2 buckshot had to
be used in killing squirrels out of
tbe top limbs. It is since under-
stood that in order to keap this ex
perience from being incorporated
in the minutes of tbe district court
proceedings, be told Clerk Krug
privately that bo might have been
mistaken as to the size of tbe shot.

GRAND JURY REPORT.
SomeJSuggestions in Regard to the County
Faui-Fifty-Six [Indictments Returned.
Tho grand jury for the fall term
of district court adjourned Tuesday.
Since beiog iu ssssion they have re-
turned fifty-six indictments; twenty-
eight fclonieB and tho same number
of misdemeanors- Following is tho
report in full:
To tho Hon. E. R. Sinks, Judge of
the Distriot Court:
We, your grand jury, beg leave to
make the following report: We
have had a long and laborious sob*
sion, and have investigated a great
many cases, both of felonies and
misdemeanors. Iu our investigas
tion our aim waB to only find indict
ments when we thought tho evi-
dence would convict iu the trial
court. Wo have presented 28 in-
dictments for felonies and 28 indict-
ments for misdemeanors.
We visited the county farm and
found ''tat to bo in as good condi-
tion as coald be expected under the
There ate 8 paupers on the farm
at present; two women and five meu
and ono demented woman. All
seem to bo well cared for. Every-
thing about tbe farm has a neat
look. Superiutendaut Robertson
seems to take great pride and inter-
est in the success of the farm.
Whether it will prove a financial
success for tbe county time alone
will show. Unfortunately there is
a little friction between some of the
county officers and the managers of
the farm. The State law in regard
to county farms is that when acoun
ty convict is sent to tbe farm he
works out his fine and cost. The
county only pays over to tbe offi-
cers one-half of their fees. This
the officers contend is wrong; that
they should not bo taxed one-half
of their fees for the benefit of the
farm, and thoy claim the right to
pay the county the fines imposed
and to turn the convict loose and
take the chances of collecting the
whole amount of their foes at their
own risk aud expense. This may
have ths county without laborers
and result in a total failure of tho
farm. This is tho condition of afs
fairs and tho grand jury is not able
to suggest a remedy unless, if it
can be legally done, we would sug-
gest that tho county farm would
pay, say 75 per ceit of fees to tho
officer;!, wtroh wo think would be
just and would bo satisfactory to
all parties concerned.
We also visited tho jail. There
are 13 prisoners confined in the cells
and two crazy negroes confiued in
an outside building, 0D9 a helplesB
old man tt!«o if) n pitiable object in-
jail looks to bo very well
kept. One of the prisoners did not
have a shirt on aud said that he had
none; that he had asked for clothing
and they would not give him any.
In regard to county financos we
refer you to the roport of your
finance committee which wo hand
you as a part of this roport.
Your grand jury can not close
this report without extending their
thauka to your honor aud tho dis-
trict end county attorneys for their
kind ass'stacce cud many courtusieS
shown t'jo g aid jury during their
session. S A. Jiobrirf,
Repoi c of Finance Committee.
To the nor. E. I-'. S' iks, Jut'^e 20 Juiicial
Your Ilnauco committee has inves-
tigated *.b thoroughly as possible in
the limited time at their disposal
and beg leave to report as follows :
The county treasurer was checked
up and we find his books and cash
on hand to bo correct. Wo found
so that all money collected by the
different officers had been turned
over to the proper authority.
We find that there bas been some
improvement made in tho matter of
collecting fines imposed since last
report, but would respectfully sug-
gest that there is room for consider-
able improvement yet. Sinco the
establishment of the county farm
by the county it seems to us that al-
most all the iiues imposod should
be collected either in mouey or by
work. Some who are fined are phy-
sically unable to work, and in such
cases we suggest that the officer
should go bofore the commissiouers'
couit and make a statement of the
facts in such cases, and receive a res
lease from suoh fines, and samo
should be entered on finance ledger.
The commissioners ccurt are by tho
statute allowed large discretionary
powers in this matter and it is by
law made the duty of all peace offi-
cers to carry out their orders.
We would suggest that they issne
an order to the sheriff that all per-
sons fined without discrimination,
shall be placed in jail and released
only on payment of fino or in de-
fault thereof be sent immediately
to the farm, except in cases whero
some reason exists why thoy should
not bo sent. This rule should apply
to officers releasing prisoners as
well as to other persons. None
should be released without payment
of fino in cash.
In crder that the books may be
properly kept it might be well to
havo tho county clerk's order or tho
jailor for those whose fines have
been paid and county judge's order
for those who are sent to the farm
and such orders from county judge
to be 0. K. by county clerk in or-
der that he may make proper entry
on finance ledger.

"JIM, THE PENMAN."
Among lbe many attractions of
the higher order booked for tbe
Grand Opera house the present sea-
son, there is nono that possesses the
world wide reputation that Sir Chas.
Young's masterpiece. "Jim, the
Penman," does. The endutiug pop-
ularity is explained by the simple
directness of its story, its admirable
portiayal of character and its true
and absorbing development of hu»
man goodness and frailty. Its mor-
al is iucisive and so evidently in ac-
cordance with the actions of the
dramatic personao that, the lesson it
conveys goes direct to the heart and
miud^of everyone who witnesses it.
In tho whole range of the modern
drama no character therein drawn,
excels that o? James Ralston, the
suffering crimina', who exhorts the
deepest sympathy by reason of the
dramatist's fckill in showing him
struggling vainly against that fate
which he clearly sees bo is called
upon to moet. The work of Mr.
Frank C. Bangs in this most extra-
ordinary rolo is one of tho most
masterly and effective examples of
characterization ever seen, and the
careful and self exacting study be
has made of the character is only
revealed through the moit life-liko
embodiment an actor can hopo to
present. One night only, b'riday
