The American G-ianer and Cetton
Beptrtinf Agea?j te?s great dinner
to the formers in the 'establishment of
warehouses for the storage ?f cotton.
It S88BK3 underneath the system a
secret scheme to control the cotton
aarket and oppress the farmer. It
admits that this is not the avowed purpose
of the "Napaleons in the domain
of business," ptblicly expressed, bat
that i 'the iavasioB has gbeen undertaken"
and "is insidious in its approaches.
"
This is abeut the way the scheme
will be worked accordiag to the
?inner: "The cotton will be taken to
th* wapfl^nn&A hv fhn fareftrs when
the pries of cotton Is cot satisfactory,
and the farmer will want a little
money on hit cotton. He will take
his warehouse receipt and negotiate a
loan approximating the value of the
eotton at ths time of delivery. The
warehoate concern will probablr advance
the money itself. When the
cotton declines a margin will be demanded,
but the farmer has spent the
money he borrowed and cannot pet it
up. He loess his cotton, and the
warehouse concern has his cetton."
This, of eourse, may set apply to
, local warehouses ownei by home
people, but the trusts have a way of
crushing oat loeal competition. They
have swallowed so nearly all the cotton
seed oil mill;, and they mav get
central ef the warehouse.
The farmer has within himself,
4 however, the pewer to be independent
of the trusts. If he will raise his own
supplies and cotton as a surplusage,
. he can hold his eotton himself when
nUatu ?rif) mre\r\'t Vi*jrm tr\ hni'PltW
- ??w
money on it. The trouble with the
farmer is that his methods of doing
business make him an easy prey for
the trusts to devour.
"TOWS BUILD3EXS."
In reund numbers $S,000,000 have
been invested in cotton mills in this
State since the first day ol January.
We regret that not one cent of this
amount has been > .vested in Wiuns*
boro.
The future of Winnsbore, as is the
case with nearly every little town in
tbe South, depends upon cotton manufacture.
The following from the
if r a .) t> j ... .
rv?tura xe? pvi uugut.
Not only do cotton mills bring profits
to stockholders, they bringjprofita to
*11 in a commanity by building up the
towns in which they are located. They
are emphatically the town builders of
this sectien. They &T6 filling the Carolina*
and Georgia with prosperous
towns. Columbia, which was sleepy
*\ and unpromising, bas sprang.; from a
v- population of 10,035 in 1890 to 20,000.
It is now wide-awake and fall of
promise. Griffin, in Georgia, & town
midway of Atlanta and Macon, sapped
by both, was in a state ot decay, out
cotton mills bare placed it in a prosperous
and substantial condition.
Greenville, in South Carolina, had
3,607 people in 1890; it will show in
the new census orer 15,000. Spartanburg,
which had 5,500 in 1890, will
show 12,000 this year. Gafiney, which
consisted a few years ago of a railroad
station and a lime kiln, has been
* turned by mills into a ^prosperous litV
Ue city of 3,000 people. Pelaer, which
was a spot on the map, now contains
- N < 3,000 people. North Carolina is lull
of similar examples of growth from
and through cotton mills.
WVion rtna ianctitMni Krinai ir>
deads and general prosperity, it is no
wonder that towns from the Rio
Grande all around to the Potomac are
gathering capital and building many
mills, and large mills, too, in some
cases. The cotson mill movement in
the South is the wonder and glory of
these times in the Cotton States. It
cannot be carried too far. Baild mills
in big towns and in little towns, and
even at roa,d crossings, for every welinan&ged
mill is a gold nine alike to
stockholders and to the public.
We need more of these "town builders."
One mill has done a great deal
lor us. We ought to have a half
dozen in less than fire years.
Thx Japanese are closer to the Philippines
than we are, and probably
know more about them. A Japanese
yiawowamav* VkACT rtOOffKf kmnAr Af t
ucnauapci vu^uu iuv umuvt v*
the frequent report# that the war there
is over. It says: "Manila papers continue
to report the annihilation of the
rebels, the complete desertion of
A^uinaldo and other excitements. * *
. - It wiii aaionnt to this, that when
Agaiaaldo is taken?if he 8ver is?and
when the Philippine army is smashed
people will not believe it. Most people
will wink ths other eye and say
the Americans maet be getting badly
corncred again."
By the way, what has oecome ox
Agein&ldo? Has tbat chase after him
ever ended?
The Spectator (Londos) thinks that
afler about three years the United
States can give the Philippines "as
much profitable business as is good
for the morality of any Asiatic people."
The Administration it has observed it
imbued with European ideas. The
Puerto Rican tariff bill, in its opinion,
will give the people of that island "as
much profitable business as is good for
their morality."

The licit that Dr. Heover of Ridgeway
h*s established no of&ee at Mr. 1
P. C. Mellichamp's store aid will attend
tbere every Tuesday will tend
greatly to relieve the minds of oor
geod people here and oar friends in
the adjoining neighborhood. Dr.
Heover is a young physician and Bur{MD
of raro ability and bids fair to
attain ^rest eminence in his profession.
Since Dr. Province left ua here
alene not a few of ns hare felt uneasy 1
by bein^- thus situated withoat any established
physician- So the coming
ol Dr. Poorer will do much to relieve
oar fee.'isgs in more than one rsspect.
Tbere is seise sickness ia oar neighborhood,
though not mack at present 1
except son; cues suffering frem
chronic troubles. We hare a few !
brocic cempiainers out nop? iam
they will soon be aet right. 1
Mr. Will Baker is quite sick now
with some troubles of several years 1
standing. Dr. Hoorer is very hope- ;
folofbim however, and we hope he 1
will soon be well and strong again.
Mr. John Dyet of Blackstock, is
preparing to put up a sawmill across
the Waierea Creek from here. He
has a lot of logs cut over there how
and would be glad to take other
orders for lanbtr.
Mr. B. F. Cassels, one of oar farmermerchii'ts,
took a little vacation last
week, spending several days with
relative* i* Chester.
The i-opular Mr. Howard Culp, of
Chester, passed through our tow* a
short white ago. Mr. Culp is a joJlr
fellow, carrying snashine and naerriment
with him wherever he goes, and
it was Tery exhilarating to have bias
pnt in his appearance in our duil little
town tilling of what a fine oppor
tunity he had down in Lonjtown te
display his ever graceful galantry.
Just imagine him holding a pair of .
runaway horses with one hand and !

Rais, rain, and still it continues to
:ain. Notwithstanding the excessive
rain?, considerable farm work has
>een done. The farmers availing
ihemselves of the few fair day? of the
past two weeks, worked-with a Tim,
md succeeded in getting some corn
planted. If we have favorable weather
aext week we will in all probability
yet our usual acreage of Marcb corn
planted. We don't tbink the cotton
icreaee will be increased in oar seclion.
Farmers will devote the usual
icreage te corn, etc.
Gardening is bow the order of the
day. Nearly every one greets yea
ivith the question, "Have you planted
four garden?" Most of them coald
wbwer in the affirmative now. Some
of oar gardeners hare cabbage, peas,
Lnrnipt, lettuce, etc., up, and looking
oicely.
The recent cold wave occasioned1
ornch uneasiness concerning the fruit
crop. Some seemed to think it was
kilied or injured Eeverely. However,
it bas not been killed. We d? not
ibink that it has been injured to anv
great extent. Peach aad plum trees
are blooming out nicely
