A Fire Boulevard.
Chicago, which seems disposed to
learn by the experience of two groat
fires, now proposes to build what is
called a re boulevard. The sugges.
tion, as explained by the Chicago
Tribune, is "that a belt of territory
of the width of a block, running west
from the lake to Ashland avenue,
and thence north, should be purchased
by the city and set apart as a peo.
pie's pserk and boulevard, forming at
the same time one of the greatest per.
sible protections against and proven
tives of the spread of fire that ean be
deie. Suoh a boulevard, the
Tribune says, will be built in twenty
years. It will form a barrier beyond
which firs could not extend, and, more
than all, the editors adds :-"It will
penetrate the most thickly settled
port ions of the city, giving breathing
space and relaxation to multitude,
who are now confined to the orowded
tenements and narrow streets w a.ert
they live. In a few years this park,

Autoblography of a Cotton Bale.
IN TWO C11APTERS.
I was raised in Wake County,
North Carolina, by a, farmer of mod
orate means. At an early kge I
learned from a conversation between
the farmer and a neighbor, that I and
the land on which I was raised were
mortgaged to a Baltimore firm, who
had furnished fertilizers for the soil,
and also to a Raleigh merchant who
bad sold supplios of Western bacoh
and corn for the support of the field
hands, and Northern hay and oats-for
the mules. The farmer copnplained
that necessity had forced him to pay
a very high rate of interest for the
use of the capital invested in the
above mentioned fertilizers and fat-u
supplies, and that hp bad in addition
to pay a heavy fee for drawing and
recording the mortgage securing the
I noticed tha the mules on the
farm were poorly fed, and that as
they passed the lot gate they eagerly
nipped a few bunches of luxuriant
clover which had sprung up from
seeds dropped out of the Norttern
oats. The farmer said, as the mules
passed on 'I would sow an acre in
clover, but I need all my best land
I have nothing very remarakable
to tell you concerning my youthful
days. I observed that the hands
emnploed in the field were poorly
clad. Most of them wore coarse,
cheap Northern u.ade clothes, shoes
and hats, and from their rude talk, I
found that they had very little edu
cation. The wives and children of
these farm laborers frequently camne
to the field, and I saw that the
women wore Northern calico dresses
and that the children were growing
up in ignorance.
After being picked and packed I
was taken to Raleigh. The oem
mibsion merchant said to the farmer :
'Cotton is flat to-day, but we expect
it will go up soon.' The farmer
sighed and remarked : 'Well I guess
I went into a large new brick store
and accidentally heard the merobant
say to the clerk. 'Insure this bale of
cotton and charge Mr. A. with in
surance and storage.' I remained
shut up for some time, when the- fur
mer came in one day and the mer
ohant said to him : 'Cotton is po
better, but I am compelled to have
some money. I will ship your bale
to Baltimore and do the bes% I ian
A dray soon came up, and, as I
was hoisted into it, the merchant
said : 'Iave this bale insured and
directed to W. & H., Baltimore.
They will pay the freight and in
I was hurried over the railroads to
Norfolk and thence by steamer to
Baltimore. I was then stored for
some time, when I was sold to an
agent of a Rhode Island manufactur
er. As I patssd out I heard the
merchant calcutating how much was
due him as torage and commission
on my sale. My purchaser was also
busy in getting out his insurance on
me and arranging to pay freight on
me to IRhode ls'and.
Nothing occurred on the route to
my destination worthy of remark.
WVhen I arrived at the factory, 1
found several thousand friends raised
in North Carolina. I noticed the
women and children seemed cheerful,
but none of them wt,re Southern
made shoes or Southern made clothes,
or ate Southern bacon. The dray
horses were well kept, but did 'not
eat Southern hay or oats. The own
or of the factory, they said, was very
rich, and had made his fortune
manufacturing ootton cloth for the
New York market.
I eas hurried through the factory
and came out a bolt of nice smncoth
cloth. I was hurried into a bale
of cloth for a New York wholesale
house, and as I went out everhead
a conversation of the owner of the
mill. He said be was realizing
handsome profi-s from big factory,
and besides ho was giving employ
mont to a hund red families, and was
one of the largest taxpayers in the
I then went to Noew York to the
establishment of of one of thme muer
chant princes, and w.ns delighted to
hoar him say to a clerk, 'Send this
bale to Messrs. Tucker,IRaleigh.' As
I had passed over thme route before it
was not new to me and I arrived
safely in less than than a week. By
charce I was put on the bottom of a
large pile of cloth, and having noth
in g else to do, I entered into a little
calculation. I was as follows:
I have changed hands often. First
the Raleigh merchant realized his
profit and store ge. Then the Insu.
ranee agent. Then the steamoara got
their freights. Then the Northern
Insurance agent got his per cent.
Then the manufacturer got his profits,
The New York wholesale merobani
got hIs per cent. T1hen the railroadi
and steamers got their return freight
and the insuranoe man got a'i6them
per cent. Messts Tucker must havE
a per cent. and --
- har & ceark rcmnked down and
pulled me out Aitb a Oerki and lo and
behold ! my old P)Atvrs the man who
raised me, said,be,ould take me,
'thht he wautefd so einorrard home
sputi,' atidt was bnid lad ind am now
at.mY old bomp in 'ake, expecting
shortly to. be,oist-up..
I belie*6 when Mr.' WT er's clerk
broke the thretd-of. f4 disiourse, I
was making a calculation. I had
told how h.e followink.persons reali;.
ed profts on me : i
I. The,Rsleigh Cotton Factor.
2. The Ao:niiroad&, and Steam
3. The Insurance agent$.
4. The Ilaltidke Merchant.
6. Thie Notthen -ailrouds.
6. The Northern 'I0hurance Co
7. The Manufaoturei.
S. The Wholebale Mbrhant.
9. The railroadas.onlturn freight.
10. The Insurance men ba return
.f. The retail- dealer.
These parties all show a deep iq.
terest in me, and I wielito say I en
tertaip no unkind feelings toward any
of them. The profits they realised
from me were legitimate and proper.
But I feel very kindly for the man
who raised mne, and when I considered
that ho paid all these acoumtilated
profits added to the original cost, I
did not wonder that he dressed poor
ly and was bard pressed, to support
his family. I have travelled around
and listened to oalculating men talk,
and I intend to whisper a word to
him through the Crescent. What I
want to Pay is: .
Raise your own hogs. Don't buy
Western bacon at a high price when
cotton is liable to be at a low price 1
Sow an acre or two in clover. It will
save corn and dnableyou to feed your
teams better, und will cost you loss
than Northern oats and hay. It will
enable you to feed your cow4 bettor
and they will give more and better
milk. Your oalvei, will grow larger
and make finer cattle. Raise yotur
own own corn and wheat. Don't
plant all cotton. If your land is
pior, sow peas and improve it. Save
all your barnyard manure, compost
your vegeta le mould, and don't buy
And when I get through whisper
ing to the farmer, I want to say a
word to onpitalists.
Cotton must be raised in the Sout i.
There will always be a demand for
the manufactured article. We have
waterpowers in abundance. If Nor
thern manufactures can pay tranpor.
talion and insurance on the raw ma
terial, and manufacture it on the
frosen streams of New Eogland and
realise handsome profits, why cannot
the Southern manufacturer, who can
purobase at his door without freight
and insurance charges,compete suo
cessfully with the Northern manufac
turer ?, Our waterpowers are as
good ; streams are seldom frosen ; our
ulimato is better, we can work more
days in the year ; labor can be had as
cheap. 13erides making large profits
on the capital invested, you will give
employment to our poor women and
ohildron, and the cost of manufactur.
ing instaed of enriching men a thou
sand miles away, will be lpent with
our own merchants and tradamen,
and thus improve ,tho condition of
our own State.
I do not wish to be misunderstood.
I do not desire North Carolinians to
invest their capital in factories be
cause I entertain any unkind feeling
for Northern people. I have had
enough sectionalism. I was once
known as King 'Cotton, but my crown
if not entirely rained, is badly
damaged by sectional difficulties. I
only mentioned the North because
most of our Mtaple is manufactured
there. I wish to see all our people
