WHITE LABOR IN THE SOUTH.
A Bid That Will Not Be Long Resisted
Natural That White People Improve
With a cotton crop valued at
$7oo,ooo,ooo and the certainty that
the annual product of this staple
will equal or exceed that sum in
value for years to come, the South
is making a bid for white labor that
will not be long resisted. Labor
goes where reward for honest toil
is assured, and the conditions in the
South are now such that the white
man ma, rely upon profitable em
ployment. with abundant oppor
tunities for bettering his condition,
without which there is no incentive
to labor. The development of the
cotton industry in the South reads
like a romance, and its results must
be a revolution in the wage system
and methods now employed in car
ing for this great industry and devel
oping other branches of the coun
try's wealth of resources.
In the decade following the civil
war the South produced about 2,
5oo,ooo bales of cotton annually,
which were disposed of at fancy
prices. Then came an increase in
production and a decrease in price,
which resulted in the planters secur
ing about the same money returns
as in the first decade. Within the
last few years, however, the pro
duction has increased at an en
ormous rate and now amounts to
about ro,ooo,ooo bales annually,
with a value of about $700,000,000.
Cotton factories have been establish
ed and the centerof the fabric manu
facturing business removed from
New England to the South. This
was the first long step in the solu
tion of the labor problem. White
men were required for skilled work
in the mills. Their wants and needs
caused the establishment of 'other
manufacturing industries, calling
for the services of more white la
bor. The bars have been broken
down and the white man has es
tablished his position in the field of
labor in the South without losing
his self-respect or his social stand
ing. White manual labor is no
longer considered with the disrespect
that was one of its burdens in slavery
Men who have studied the labor
conditions in the South are now
most enthusiastic in encouraging
white immigration to that section.
The results of the last few years
have shown that white men
not only excel the negroes in the
work in the mills and factories, but
that they raise more and better cot
ton than the negro workmen, are
better paid, have better standards
of living, and add greatly to the
prosperity of the communities in
which they have located. It will
be a surprise to people of the North,
perhaps, to know that white men
are now doing most of the work in
the cotton fields. The Census Bureau
statistics show that of the 24,000,
ooo acres of cotton raised last year
white labor worked z4,5oo,ooo acres
of it and nearly 5,000,000 acres
were worked by "white managers,"
men who rented small tracts and
hired negro laborers to do a share
of the work. These facts should
effectually explode the old argu
ment, used by immigration agents
interested in booming Western lands
that the white man cannot work
cotton profitab'y and cannot endure
the semi-tropical climnate of the cot
ton section. It should show show
much more profitably white men
can raise cotton in the South than
wheat in the cold Northwest. The
South is enjoying the blessings of a
remarkable prosperity, and there is
nothing more natural than that the
white people shall improve the op
portunities o? sharing it. The South,

TAMING A HORSE.
Three Artielex That Will Subdue the
1loxt Savage Animal.
There were trouble and excitement
one day on a ranch in Colorado. A
high spirited, half broken stallion was
prancing about the yard attached to
the rarcher's house. He had just
thrown a cowboy who boasted there
was nothin on four legs he could not
ride. and he was rearing and bucking
so that not even the pluckiest man on
the rnxeh dared to approach.

and then v:iulted lightly on his back
and rode around the yard. to the
amla::ement of the men.
"How Co you manage it?" one of
them asked her. "Before you tackled
him he was as savage as a tiger."
"It is simple enough," the girl re
plied. "Any woman can handle a
horse better than a man can. See this"
-showing the man a small round ob
ject she had in her hand-"this is
horse castor. Horses love the smell of
it and will go up to any one who has it.
"Any horse has sense enough to know
the people who love it. That stallion
began to quiet down as soon as he saw
me. When I got near him he smelled
the musty horse castor in my clothes,

"That pleased him so much that I
was able to stroke his head. While do

drops of oil of cumin, which I had
poured into the- palm of my hand.
Horses positively love that scent. Then.
did you notice that I put my hand into
his mouth? The object of that was to
pour a few drops of oil of rhodium on
to his tongue from a tiny vial which
I always carry.
"With these thre, articles any horse
can be tamed. Where do you get them?
Well, the cumin and rhodium can be
bought at any drug store; the horse
castor must be cut from a horse's ft -e

It is a fact that horses are very ft d
