Hon. E. P. Curtis announoed
yesterday that ho had wirhdrawn
from tho race for railroad com-
missioner. Among other reas-
ons for so doing he states
"While I do not concede by any
means that the primaries held up
to this times indicate my defeat
in the contest for Railroad Com-
missioner, still I realize that the
best I could hope for would be a
locked convention with tho
chances probably against me
were it possible for mo to continue
) -struggle- But being entirely
out of campaign funds and hav-
ing already imposed upon my
friends entirely too much in this
direction. I deem it best to with-
draw from tho race."
Wind Killed Cotton.
Mr. Joh.i Talley was in town
ygsterday and told the Tribune
man of the most uncommon oc-
currence connected with the
weather last Sunday. He ob-
served that several whirl Winds
formed in his field and about the
neighborhood, but thought noth-
ing of it until a neighbor told him
he had better examine his cotton.
He did so and found that wherever
a whirl wind had played the cot-
ton was killed to a stalk. He
has replanted four or five acres,
while three of his, neighbors have
done the same thing, their losses
being from three to four acres
each. Corn was broken down and
knocked over also, but was not
killed. This is the first time so
far as known, that whirlwinds
have cleaned up cotton fields.

Sunday's Storm, s
The high wind which. prevaftiB(fe
last Sunday was a great disaster
to this section, inasmuch as' abctoO
one-third oi the cotton crop, ya
totally killed, and will, have to

.and that section ot-country, aiu-
as far north as Holland the strip -
affected being about three tnijes '(i
in width. The plants on the fol-';J
lowing day were black and looked $
as though they had been scalded.'S ,

with such lorce as to tkill, it;
that it was due to some potsbiww

that the electricity in the air dij
