for American cotton in France, Eng England,

This tremendous movement from a

more than a week was made possible
by the enterprise of Henry Nanninga
head of the Henry Nanninga Com Company,

business outlook, taken a leading po position

vessels specified in this movement are

, These sailings which will perhaps
take out the greatest amount f of
American products from a 'single port
in so short a time, will it is expected,

Following is a report, sent in 'by
one of the survivors, of a hunting
trip in the Gulf Hammock, whicji was
participated in by Messrs. Geo." M.
Blitch, J. J. Harris, H. H. King, P.
W. Priest, F. A. Blitch; Landis Blitch
and John Lancaster.
The start was made .Nov. 23 from
Morriston. On the way over we
gathered in 35 quail and had a grand
feast for supper. I do not think there
could have been more devoured ; if all
hands had been cleaning up ham
mock. After pitching camp, the boys
killed a number of squirrels, and the
next morning by 8:30 we had a deer
with its hide off hanging up This
lasted the balance of the week and it
was well we started off as we did, for
the balance of the hunt was without
success except for small game.
Crossing, the creek was what wor worried
ried worried me most, for walk as carefully
as possible the foot log would wig wiggle
gle wiggle and in the stream I would go,
which seemed to be funny for 'i the
boys, yet I could not feel tickled over
it. Everything went off harmonious
ly. It was the most congenial crowd
it has been my pleasure to accompany
on a trip of the kind. A Mr. Harris
was full of fun with Landis Blitch a
close second. Fenton Blitch was in a
hurry all the time. Mr. King was the
judge in ; dignity and as chaste as a
lady, in his language, with Priest a
close partner. "Shorty," the cook,
kept 'the camp charmed with his
melodious song which sounded some
thing like this:
"I am going up to heaven,
To try on the garment.
To see if that garment will fit
My soul and body;
Good-bye, sing Halleluliah!"
