WEDNESDAY, SEPT. 20.
There are a good many new cases
of yellow fever at Key West, but
few deaths, the fever does not seem
to be of a virulent typo.
The secretary of state has
received an application for a
charter for a company which
proposes to erect a $55,000 cotton
mill at Hickory Grove, York county
The Black Diamond Railroad
has at last succeeded in getting its
char^r amended. The amend
ment extends the time for com
pleting the work sixty years, that
is to say until 1959. Our Secre
tary of State very propel ly object
ed to granting the amended char
? ter on the ground that the Philip
pine war would be over in sixty
years, and in view of that fact beld
that the charter should make Lu
zon and keep a losing, one of the
GOOD NEWS IN BUSINESS
Dun's Review for the week end
ing Sept.. 16, gives the following
rosy view of the business of the
"Better than all other news, the
record ot August commerce shows
the relation of United States busi
ness to that of other countries.
Exports were $20,082,875 larger
than ever before in August
and exceeded imports by
$37,929,699, partlv because exports
of staples were $9,366,978 larger
than last year, but also because
exports of other products, mainly
manufacturing, were $10,349,000
larger than last year, and larger
than in any other month of any
year. Fears that great advance in
prices might shut off export of
manufactured products have not
been unnatural, and it is most
gratifying to find that such exports
still continue and expand. The
excess of exports over imports gives
fair promise of as large a balance
in foreign trade to the benefit of
the country during the winter as
has ever been seen. That manu
factured exports do not fall off, but
are larger than ever, is both
surprising and gratifying.
The volume of business now in
progress has never been rivalled,
Clearing house payments in the
second week of September were
29.2 percent, larger than last year
and 58.9 per cent, larger than ic
1892. Railroad earnings in the
first week of September were 9.7
per oent. larger than last year, and
JL3.1 per cent, larger than in 1892 ;
returns coveringhalf the jn?eagj
iho8eof 1892 by 18.5 per cent.,
and the July returns covering all
the large systems show earnings of
$92,853,522, exceeding last year's
by 19.6 per cent., and those of 1892
by 14.2 per cent. Tonnage from
Chicago was nearly 60 per cent,
larger than in 1892, and 90 per
cent, larger than in 1898.
A woman's idea of a minute's
rest is to lean over the back fenc6

In compliance with a request ol
the Enquirer to give his method ol
curing pervines, referred to in hi?
recont letter to the wheat growers,
in convention at Greenwood, Mr
L R. Self, of Lincolnton writes a:
follows, under date of August 21
.'My method of curing peavinet
is to allow them to yellow up some
two or three feet from the roots
and to allow some of the pods t(
ripen. I begin cutting in th?

Vit is*important that no water bi

"Within three to five days a pei
of peavines so put up will begin t<
smoke like a small volcano, and il
is just at thi? time thal
most persons will be tempted U
throw it down in order to let th?
air circulate through it. Do not
thing of the kind ; for it will sureh
ruin the hay. Just let the per
smoke all it wants to. There ?B nc
danger of fire. At least this has
been my experience. I have been
pursuing this plan for three year?
and have not had a case ol
spontaneous combustion yet. Last
year I filled my barn full of peavine
hay, and the result was just as
satisfactory as if the vines had
been put in pens.
"Cut the vines before the leaves
begin to crumble, get them up with
out rain or dew pack them tight
and allow no water io leak on them.
"This is my plan. I have been
pursuing it for three years, and
am today feeding as fine pea hay
as is to be found in the world."
