Now, ladies, all both youog and cid,
Just listen for awhile
A tale to you I will ucfjld,
To make you sweetly smile,
In doubts and tears, the last foor years.
Wo all have spent together
Oar anxious hearts, and horrid fears,
Have made for us bad weather.
But now, oh ! joy, this glad New Year
Brings to our mourning hearts
A message rare, a soothing balm,
To heal the stinging smarts.
^At^enis, ueware ! I tell you true
That dancer lurks ali round;
Tue girls are ready to catch you
They are heeding every sound.
For men are scarce, and very rare ;
So do not be surprised
If on 6ome mornirjg bright and fair
You are all capsized.
We see you daily pass our door,
And sometimes you will call
To say "good day," and nothing more ;
Those visits we recall.
. "v " \
We have agreed, both youog and old,
To no longer live in fear;
And if you call us " very bold,"
Why, gents, it is " Leap Year."
Now, young men, who have eyes of blue.
And all whoso eyes ara black,
Yon had better keep my words in view,
Or safely clear the track.
Fur we are marchi?g to the van,
And we intend to fight,
But that poor timid "little man"
Had better hide from sight.
Can we not watch the night's sad queen,
And, sighing, v'ew (he stars ?
Ab ! we can, if we are not seen,
Go " kissing through the bars."
This is the year when "single girls"
Can face their fellow-man,
And with their tears, like modest pearls
Will do the best they can.
Then come, dear girls, let us unite,
And shout a happy cheer ;
Let female voices loud speak out,
To welcome glad " Leap-Year."

A Fall History and Description Of
the Clement Atta? ua>em~Figures
?.id Facts Shewing What It May Ac
coaipiish-lt isa Success.
CORINTH, MISS , Dec. 16; 1879.
?duors Post and j\7ea>s :
Some five years since, Bishop
Paine, of Aberdeen, Miss., called at
my office in this place and casually
remarked that he had recently seen
in Cincinnati some yarns of superior
strength and sheen, which had been
made directly from seed cotton by
some Middle Tennesseean whose
name he could not recollect. I be
came immediately interested, for J
such a thing during
ful machinists, who were nearly all
in the army or in government ma
/ chine shops. On the Bishop's rei uro
home he sent me the address ol
Lewis Tresband Clements, of Smyrna,
Tenn., as the man who had invented
a new process of converting seed cot
ton directly into yarn.
I immediately wrote to him and re
ceived a prompt answer ?rom Jes. A.
Ridley, stating that Clements had ac
cidentally lost his life some two years
previous; that his machine was at
Pulaski, Tt nu., wl.e/v-it was made,
and had remained since Ciernen?'?
decease-nnd appointed a day to
meet me there and ?how it to me.
THE FIRST MACHINE.
We met. I found the machine as
k*h.<dle?t it. It had likely not
been opened ??ft? w de^th, and was
deeply covered with dus*. OD ex
amination I did not exclaim but men
tally said " Eureka." The result
w*as I beeline a third owner and
general agent for the other seventeen
owners of the patent which Clements
h id taken out. I went to see B. B.
Smith, who had assisted Clements in
miking his machine, and after con
sultation it was determined to make
some sl'^ht changes, which resulted
in the present attachment, wh'cb
ivas after the great originator " Cle
ments." Smith in doing this secured
a patent connected with the at
tachment. After completing and fully
testing it (at Pulaski where it was
made) with closed doors, I removed
it to this place, and on receipt of
yarns from various factories, both
North and South, where I had sent
slivers made by the attachment to be
spun into yarns, all of the Northern
factories believed from the strength
and sheen of the sliver, rove aDd
thread that it was some new kind of
silk cotton of long, fine staple lately
introduced in the South, when in
reaMty it was made of dirty, short
staple cotton grown in the mountinF
around Pulaski. The yarn3 and ma
chine created great interest, and had
many to see them. 1 became alarm
ed lest ihe machine should be im
proved on and patented by some one
j^^-~%?-U^-detriment of its owners, and
had the card anti al tachment remov.
el to aBmall factory machine-shop in
the mountains of North Alabama,
whore I kept it twelve months, ex
perimenting and securing other pat
ents, to as to cover the whole thing,
at the expiration of which time the
first mill was started at this
place, which was followed by mills
iu Tennessee, South and North Caro
lina. The Clement?-' patent was for no
new invention, but for the combina
tion of the principles of two ma
chines that have been in use for
three-fourths of a century; namely,
the gin and card, for converting seed
cotton by one operation, directly in
^his nprhin/e clarets vf a 8$ imty
top-flat, self-Btipping card, the at
tachment (which is a diminutive gir
18x36 inches), is substituted for tb?
licker-in and feed-rollers of the card
its eaw3 are seven inches in diameter
with 14 teeth to the inch, and re
volves from 160 lo 200 times pe:
minute. The brush connected witl
the saws is a cylinder covered will
bristles ; its periphery revolves i
little faster than the saws, and ha
also a traverse or horizontal motion
The periphery of the card travels i
'?..ile faster than that of the bruah ; i
feed ?able is placed above the car(
and connected with the attachmen
by a chute, and gives a regular sup
ply of Heed* cotton to tue attachment
A. siop mo?ion is o ed to save wasti
in case of accident. These, v/:tl
. a drawing between the do (Fer anc
c.* I lender rollers, . lo i educe thi
sliver to the ordina>y work
ng size, and a ? an mo? ion to re
ofive the sliver, a.e all the changes
and conditions made in ths card, and
there are none made elsewhere.
The seed cotton is spread upon the
endless apron of the feeder table
aid passes thence through i ne chut?
into i he attachment, where the lintis
removed from the seed, and whilsi
on tbe hoe baw tee'h (after passiuf
the ribs) passes through a set o
combing plaies, removes all extra
neous matter, and delivers ihe fila
ments to the brash, which].deli vers
tliem to the ca/d, and^thence through
d??fer, small drawing and -ciJleudci
rollers, are delivered as perfect, si i vet
into a revolving can.
By this process only four machine;
are necessary to convert any amount
of seed cotton into perfect yat n?, viz.:
Card, as changed, drawing irame,
feeder, and tr inning-frame ; it is
# i/ae a cleanser of seed colton is used
a3 a preparatory mach'ne ; its siz?? is
22x2Sx44 inches';"cost. $75; capaci
ty, 6,000 pounds of seed cotton per
day; power necessary to drive, one
half of one hors9.
The new process dispenses with
fully one-half the building, machin
ery, motive power and operatives
hi tb ei ?'o necessary to convert any
given amount of seed cotton into
yarns ; causes the card, with the
came amount of motive power, to do
five times as much wo-k ; eaves one
bf?if the usual waste, and produces
sponger sliver, rove and thread than
can be made of baled cotton, whk-b
on account of their extra strength,
ee'dcm break or let down, thereby
enabling operatives to al?end more
machinery and each machine io do
more work. The thread is equal in
eve-y re-pect to that made of bnled
cci ion, fitly per cent, s? ronger and
The attachmeot P ^ercedes the

aie costly and^unnecessary machines,

The reason why the card will do
five times as much using seed cotton,
and same amount of motive power,
as it did by the old process using
baled cotton, is, because the filaments
afe not permit led to leave th.? m.-i
cbinery, fly, or become tangled, but
are kept straight and paralle1, and
carding is but straightening of the
cottou filaments. The saving of one
half the usual watte is because fresh
live lotton is used and the muai ma
chinery dispensed with. The exi.a
'si length of the thread and skein is
ow?og to *l?e working oft he'-o? on from
the seed, the od of wti?ct? hj* kv| ?
it alive, light, elaetic and fl ex lb ef
with all its attenuating qualit?s per
fect ; and to - he fact that it h;.s nev
er been napped, cut nor ?aogled, by
the gin, pressed, compressed or pei
milted to berome dry, seasoned and
brittle in this tangled condition, nor
has.it been injured by willower, lop
per, double lopper, breaker and
ca^ds, wbe.e the damage done by
the gin, press and compress are
sought to be lemedied. But (hese
advantages (.gteat as ihev are) are
not half that are claimed for the
" pew procesa." The ginning, bal
ing, bagging and ties are s.tved, I he
seed insure io the manufacturers-no
loss from falsely packed cotton, no
strikes ?moog operatives for it is

daughle-s are tbe operatives.
The entire capital necessary for
the smallest size new process, mi I is,
including building and moi ive power
is only $3.500, and will net a profit
of 30 to 50 per cent, per annum-see

rope, the expenses of the shipment,
and the expenses ador its ?. rival

turer. Now, if to all these you arid

manufactured goods returned inen
you will have some idea of what
nr.'idle men receive, and ?what the
new process will save, wheu eneral
ly adopted, to our impoverished but
still beloved South.
THE ONE OBJECTION.
There never has been nor can be
but one objection to the new process,
rhat is that on the first of January
an eight months supply, ol seed cot
ton must be held to run the mill UD
till the next crop comes ir?. This
will continue to be th? case so long
as Southern farmers remain slaves
to commission merchants, middle
men, speculators, Northern capitenl
ists and manufacturers. In both the
" old " and " new process " some one
must hold this supply of cotton, and
must be paid for so doing ;" but it is
better for the manufacturer lo receive
this pay or lose the interest for three
or lour months, by which time he
con repay it with manufactured
.^ods, than to pay the gambier in
spots and futures fifty per cent for
holding it for him-which was the
case last year. But as one of the
many offsetsto this only objection to
tbe " rew process, " I will state what
I know to be true and what I ihinfa
will be entirely satisfactory to any
one except middle-men interested in
oniinuing the coKon bale system :
that seed cotton, being in bulk Irom
eight to twelve months, enhances in
market value from ll to 2 cenlB per
pound (lint), absorption of oil from
the seed by the filame-.ts which gives
the staple a rich, cr'amy coior. in
creasing its weight and traclilily and
causing ifcto work up with less wasle
Whilst baled cotton, standing the
same length of lime, delriorates in
wa?kee value iVoo: 1 to ll < eurs per
pound, becomes d'v. seasoned and
r 1 J '
brittle, losing on thc average from IS
to 22 pounds per bale^ irom Jryage,
and loses greatly from waste in be
ing worked up in this dry st.?ce.
The IiK?rnational Cotton Ex
change of London in 1S7G or 1S77,
resolved that "cotton standing in a
compressed state sixty days was in
jured more than one <.las< or grad*?.-'

1 !ie:ei)cltsk Masonry,
A. telegram from Alexandria fb the
New York Ila aid coi ?li ms in de
rail Ihe report that a number ol'
Masonic emblems have been found
beneath the obelisk known as Cleo
patra's needle. The emblems are:
A Mason'6 square of red syet:i!e gran
de, S feet G inchss by 4 feel 3
i tches, and 25x17 inches square., laid
near the coiner; under tue cud of
the short sect-ion a june v.hite s?oue,
rejuosenting au apron; under the
apron aa aliar of red granite, per
fect in fi ti i H b ; near the southern coi1
uer anotbe altar, lessp-srfecc, ?n i be
tween the alters a Bpoons.haned iron
ttowe! ot ordinary size. The tele
grim adds : "Other -toree in '.Le
foundation bear eui ions mark? an.!
cuttings, not hieroglyphics, which
may be Ma?onic ; but none her-: are
abie to decide." The obeli.sk w-is re
moved from Heliopolis-where ii is
believed io have been set up during
the reign of Thothmes III about
13G0 B. C.-in the time of Tiberiu?,
and. therefore, has stoed upon the
boee of " three steps " from which
Commander Goriing r moved it, tb?
other day, ior nearly or qutie 1.900
year?. People who are not Masons
are disposed to speak lightly of the
claims preferred in regard io the
great age of the Order. In lois dis
covery we have fairly convincing proof
that Masonry was instituted before
the beginning of the Christian Era..
None ol these emblems, alone, would
prove anything j but the five tog Ib
er,especial ly in consideration of their
position toward eat h other and to
wards the points of the compass,
prove a good de itt. Masons willoh
Berve that the several emblems are
properly disposed, and will also note
that iliP finished and unfinished " al
tar " correspond very exactly with
the ' rough ashier" and '; perfect ash
ier " which are a part uf [heparin
ture of the Masonic Lodge. INor can
the /act be regarded as insignificant
that the obelisk was raised upon a
bise ol' " three steps." Even among
Masons the legpud that ascribes the
foundation of the order to King S-.d
Dixiori, Miram of Tyro, ami Hiram
Lhe ?on ol the Widow i* net by any
means generally accepted; But with
tolerably good prool in band thal the j
Masonic fraternaty actually wa* in
?X'stence nineteen centuries ago, i; is j
jot filtogtther unreasonable to sup- j
wee that, ir was founded a thousand <
rears earlier. In view of the d>scov
iries already made, it is to be boped j

obelisk (now in England) stood wiil I ]
