Various Kinds of Manufacturing
Plants Being Operated
in the South.
MAKING PORTLAND CEMENT
There are Many Quarries in Vir?
ginia Which May be Worth
(Sp?cial to The Times-Dispatch.)
BALTIMORE, Nov. 14.?A week or two
?go a million dollar plant to manufacture
Portland cement was completed In Geor?
gia, and It Is now announced that another
million dollar plant to manufacture ce?
ment Is to be bul?t at Selma, Ala., by
Georgia and Boston capitalists, who havo
Pnld $40,000 for cement rights on a tract
of land not far away, * heso develop?
ments give especial significance to tho
suggestions made In this week's Issue of
tho Manufacturers' Record by Mr.
Charles Catlett, a well known engineer of
Staunton, Va., that no time could bo bet?
ter than the present for States, railroads
and Individuals to Investigate the extent
of natural resources in which thoy are In?
terested, with especial reference to the as?
certaining of the amount of cement ma?
terial available. Mr. Catlett has already
dwelt upon the opportunities of the South
In this respect, and says:
"In tho section In which the Iron has
been manufactured the available suppl.ee
of high grad? limestone have usually
been quite freely exploited, while the
problem of the cheapness with
which large quantles of coal can
be secured has not been solved.
It not Infrequently happens that In such
sections there Is a good deal of Informa?
tion about quarries attractively located,
'which havo doveloped too large a percent?
age of Insolubles for fluxing purposes, but
which may still prove of Interest from a
Portland cement standpoint.
Such quarries are worth Investigating.
Deposits of puro limestone are apt to
attract most attenUon. Still, It is tho?
roughly possible for t hllecmstone to con?
tain naturally such a mixture of suitable
Ingredients as to approach closely a,
Portland cement mixture, with all tho ad?
vantage In the way of economy whioh
would come from such a discovery. I
should say, therefore, tnat in a district
where tho ordinary conditions of trans- I
portation and market would make the
erecUon of a Portland cement plant at?
tractive, all the large ueposlts of highly
calcareous or limey rocks and slates
which are smooth and uniform In texture
would demand consideration as to whether
they might not be found to consist of
a composition which would make them
peculiarly well fitted for such opera?
Cement making is but a phase of the
growing dlverslflatlon In southern indus?
try, whlh Is quite marked at Birmingham,
One of the latest additions to the activi?
ty centering In that district Is .a .plant
at Ensley to manufacture roofing mate

which Is expected to be in operation by ?
January 1st, Is 100x150 feet. All the ma?
chinery will be driven by electricity, and j
the raw material will be obtained from |
near by coke ovens.
The' limits of products of the cotton
plant aa material for. Industry have by
no means been reached, but there Is con?
stant progress towards them. Near Abi?
lene, Tex., there is approaching comple?
tion a modern plant for the manufacture
of tho highest grades of cooking, salad
and other edible oils, as well as miners'
oil from the cotton seed. This plant, which
has a capital of $50,000, will also include
soap works and a compound lard estab
In the same direction is the purpose of a
cotton oil mill already operaUng at Nor?
folk, Va., to expand Its products, by
taking the hulls of the cotton seed direct
from the oil mill machinery, and putting
them through a process whereby they
will be ground up and yield hull bran
and paper, stock..The former will be sold
-for foreign and domestic cattle feed, nnd?
the'latter will go Into paper. All the ma?
chinery has been installed for the grind?
ing, but there Is still hesitation about
entering upon paper making because of
lnabllly to obtain enough water at a
reasonable price to operate the plant.
The concern, however, has leased two or
three mills to work -up -the fibre Into
paper, and success has already been bad.,

STAU ????. VA., November H.-The

tho question of building a new church was
started during the pastorate of the Rev.
W. J. E. Cox, now of Baltimore, Md. A
fund for the purpose was gradually accu?
mulated. Over a year afro the members
bought a lot at the corner of Main and
Church Streets on which to erect their
new building, and from that time on the
work was pressed with vigor. The Bu Id
Ing Committee, composed of J. P. Klee,
H. E. Fox, William II. Kable, C. ?. Her?
ring, Professor C. L. Wilson and R. E.
Tyler, who had the wor? In charge, have
been working diligently for the past year.
The building Is of br ght red brick and
Ir trimmed with light stone and has a
slate roof. The woodwork Is native pine
and finished In oil. The seating capacity
of the church Is nearly seven hundred.

to-morrow at 3 o'clock. Rev. J. M. Frost,
corresponding secretary of the Southern
Baptist Publication Society, will preach

fSpecial to The.Times-Dispatch.)
WILSON, VAi.i Nov. 14??Tho farmers
In this section ar.e much discouraged, by
the reports from ' Hie different tobacco
markets. It was thdvght, .up to a short
?ime ago, tha,t, .^rTacrv would sell well
this season, but it is now thought very
differently. So far but1 very? little of this
year's crop has been stripped and none
has been sold. All the primings have
been sold, but the prices received were
very low. .r
Tobacco Is the only staple crop raised
in this neighborhood, and It Is a great
misfortune for the farriers to receive
low prices for It. .,t,
