Our Cotton Experts Blamed.
To the Editor of the News and Cou- ]
rier: Your cotton men do not know
their business. Herein Hamburg and
Horn well counties a number of farmers
are planting a hybrid cotton with a
very soft, silky libre dud New England
mills are taking it readily now at 18?
ceuis the pound.
I made a small shipment of this cot
ton to a well known cotton linn of !
your city some time ago and they class
it as ordinary cotton. Cotton planted
from ihn seed grown upon the sumo
acre last year, taken from the same
seed pile this spring, grown under the
same conditions and of no better
grade, sold hi New England a few days
ago at lay cents.
I have ordered the fuctor to ship this
cotton to Now England and unless a
mistake has occurred that factor will
open his eyes when he hears from it.
Tho name and fnme of this cotton is
spreading like a forest Uro in a dry
time. Thousands of acres of it will bo
planted uext year and every bale will
go to New England. In ten years this
cotton will bo growing up to the city
limits of Charleston and no doubt will
bo shipped direct from farm to factory.
Charleston factors I fear are too
much interested in sea island cotton
and fear that a good grade of upland
long will injure tho value of sea island.
A prominent New England firm wrote
me last spring that the above class of
?otton wns being purchased because
sea island was scarce and high and
was being consumed in the place of sea
The average Yankee knows a good
thing when he sees it. Two years ago
he conld get all the Egyptian long cot
ton ho needed at Alexandria at 81-8
cents, yei he tooK all the above men
tioned cotton he could get at 14 cents
The ruling price last year for Egyp*
tian on tho Nile was 12 cents, yet the
New England mills took ours at 14}
cents. This season Egyptian cotton
has declined, yet Carolina upland long
sells at 18} at the Northern mills.
Therefore prices warrant mo in say
ing that we have an upland cotton hero
tjh.it is superior to Egyptian and is
being uscdin the place of sea island.
Your cotton men may condemn it, but
that is not going to stop the planting
of this cotton. The experimental stage
has been passed, the Rubicon crossed
and, as tho armies of Caesar overrun
Britain, so also is this cotton going to
invade it and drive out in a measure
the half million bales of Oriental long
cotton sold there yearly.
Can we over-stock the long cotton
mnrketT The world produces now
about 1,200,000 bales of long cotton of
500 pounds. Egypt produces' over 00
per cent of this cotton, a low grade
brown cotton. The planters there
barely can live at present prices and it
would not be a hard job to drivo them
entirely out of the cotton business.
I dc not pose as a prophet, but! pre
dict that in the next decade the South
Carolina farmer is going to drive the
farmers of the land of the Khedive out
of tho long cotton market also consid
erably cheapen the values of sea island
cotton, and that he will stand upon a
business footing as solid as the rocks
of Gibraltar. This is no dream, no
sinister scheme for personal aggran
dizement, but a fact fraught with
blessings and freighted with prosperity.

On a 10 acre tract, 5 miles from Den
ver, 15 or 20 patients in the early stages
of consumption are under the plans of

Denver, Coi?, November 24.?News
has just reached here of tho suicide of
Judge M. A. Rogers, formerly of the
Snpremo Court of Colorado,and one of
the ablest lawyers in tho State, on
Wednesday last at Steamboat Springs,
Colorado, where he had been all sum

The manner of suicide wan unuanal.

with a stick of dynamite under him,
and lighting a cigar, fired the fuse
from it and calmly smoked until the
shock of the explosion ended his life.
Tho act was committed among some
willows near Bear River, jost inside
the town limits. No cause is known
for his taking his life.
Another Narrow Escape.
Legislators and other public authori
ties, who insist that the danger of liv
ing burial is too much to require care
ful and specific provisions to prevent
the possibility of such Beeret horrors,
will be instructed, again, by the report
of the nreidentr.l aversion of au iucl
dont of the kind which was telegraph
ed from Decatur, Alabama, yesterday.

a blacksmith, narrowly escaped being

A few moments moro nnd all would

It is a question of some interest, nnd
it concerns every mortal man, how
many such incidents with less acci
dentally happy ending, occur in this
country every year ? A few have como

of the caso not many can come to light,

There is' one way nnd ono only, it is
to be repeated, by which those who

In our recollection we don't remem
ber ever having seen a more beautifnl
fall. It hnB been fair weather for
about two months, and the farmors
will doubtless never see just such an
other lovely autumn for gathering
their produce. We have not had any
rain scarcely since August, but now the
dark clouds seem to bo coming-back
again, sp wo may expect a lot of rain
Our fanners have put a considerable
amount of wheat in the ground, and
we must note right here that Borne of
them have taken no little pains with it
either. Several of our farmers have
turned their land with a two-horse .
turn-plow," .followed by a subsoil with
two horses to it. After going through
this process, they harrow thoroughly,
then put in their fertilizer and sow.the
oafs and then harrow again. We firm
ly believe that thoBe who have pre
pared their land this way will make
more grain to the acre than the way
they have been putting it in. Yes, Mr.
