OUR TRADE WITH AFRICA.
The New York Sun told recently
of the great increase within a
few yeitrs in the business of shipping
mining machinery from the
United Slates to South Africa.
The growth of the general export
business to South Africa for
the last few years has been correspondingly
great, and the increase
during this year been little
less than phenomiual. During the
year ending with last June, the
value of the exports was $5,000,-000.
Such has been the growth
of business since then that it is estimated
the exports for the year
ending with the coming June, will
be at least $1,000,000. What
this means will be seen readily bj'
a glance at the figures for two or
thiee previous years. The value
of the exports for the year ending
with June, 1894, was $4,122,912;
that lor the preceeding year, $3,-500,000;
and that for 1S92 was $3,-400,000.
One reason for the increase of
shipments is that now steamers
are available for the South Africa
trade. A few years ago the business
of southern Africa was either
so largely in the hands of the
English or in such condition that
only sailing vessels plied between
Iire and South African ports.
For the last three 3'ears steamers
have been sent, and although no
regular line has been in operation,
there are firms which send steamers
out pretty now at
the rate of about three a month
There are tramp steamers and
they take cargoes out but do not
"While comparatively few
cles were sent formerly to South
Africa from here, now almost every
kind ot commodity that this
country produces is exported.
Trade is drummed up, and Amer
icans are pushing their interests
vigorously. Only recently the
Oregon mill interests have worked
their way into the African continent,
and steamers are sailing
from the north Pacific coasts to
South African ports. Of course,
the great bulk of the shipments
from this county are made from
the port of New York, but vessels
are dispatched also from Gulf
ports and others from San Francisco.
The shipments from the South
are of wood. All the while pine
used in South Africa is sent from
this country. The shipments from
San Francisco are said to be mainly
of wheat. During the present
year wheat has formed a verjr
large poition of all the shipments
from this country. The reason is
that the African wheat crop failed,
and the Australian crop was an
What the future has in store
for the business relations of this
country and South Afrfca would
seem to be almost without limit.
One of the things which work
against the shipping firms is Africa's
paucity of good harbors. Harbor
improvements are under way
there, however, as for example at
Port Natal, the port of Natal,
where the depth of the channel
at the bar was increased from
1SS2 to 18S2 by seven feet and
seven inches. The depth in 1S92
was thirteen feet eight inches.
"What America has to look for
ward to mav be seen Irom a com
parison of the figures of its exports
and those of England.
America's exports to South Africa
were $3,500,000 in 1S93 and
England's were $46,000,000. The
total exports of manufacturers
from this county last year were in
the neighborhood of $200,000,000,
or less than half of Germany's,
and less than a quarter of England's.
Yet American raanufac
turing plants- are capable of turning
out twice the amount of goods
requisite for the supply of this
country in a year. One of the
things, not always spoken of as a
manufacturer, that South Africa
got from here is $1,000,000 worth
of rum, which" was sent outiu one
Naturally most of the exports
for, Africa are staples,, but some
fancy article, among, .them bicycles
are being introduced there.
A, 'good man medicines are sent
oier. - line' of
cheap wooden furniture is shipped
Agricultural implements are sent
in lar numbers, mainly of the old
fashioned kind, or what are now
regarded as old fashioned,although
some mowers and reapers are going
out. The reason the demand is
for wares the old style instead ot
the lobor saving machine is said
to be, not that labor is cheap over
there, but the farmers prefer to
do thing in the old way. A good
many cheap plows are exported.
An idea of the variety of the
shipments made from United
States ports to South Africa may
be gained by a glance at the manifest
of the cargo of a ship now on
the water. Among the goods
there are lard and lard oil, shoe
leather, leather, hardware, lamp
goods, codfish, corn, flour, canned
meats, axle grease, turpentine,
varnish, manufactured wool, barbed
wire, doors, handles, parts of
plows, axes, cigarettes, canned
fruits, baking powders, brooms,
carriages, nails, apples, apricots,
canned oysters, kerosene, wheat,
clocks, medicines, evaporators,
hams, stoves, wheelbarrows, dried
fruit, sugar, cotton goods of many
sorts, spokes and hubs of wheels,
junricaung oils, crusibles, ropes,
seeds and iron pipes. One of the
commission merchants speaks of
having seen many tons of iron
pipe loaded for Africa. Besides,
there are in the cargo steam pumps,
starch, plows, glassware, gloves,
curtain fixtures, rubber goods,
sporting koous, snovels, mining
machinery, furniture and organs,
whips, hay, clothing, soap, seeds,
cartridges, galvanized oilers, wire
mats, oats, lumber, nectarines,
candy, can openers, tongues, hay
cutters, iron bolts, refined petro
leum; books, candles, paraffine
wax, suspenders, plaj'ing cards,
glucose, mail coaches, knives, electrical
machinery and supplies,
hammocks, paper bags, tiunks,
exterminators, tomatoes, syrup,

lawn mowers, scales, wooden
horses, drugs, typewriters,
paper, charts, r3re, bycycles, typewriter
supplies, lead pipe, paint,
rooting, carts, trucks, canvas,
canned salmon, feed cutters and
In many, if not most, of these
product they can be no competition
between this country and
England. Of course, Englaud can
send no wheat. In manufactured
hardware, the supremacy of
American goods is acknowledged.
The English goods in this line, it
is said, are heavy, without being
any stronger than the American,
and while the African residents
stick by the old methods in farming,
they like light articles for
hand use and for use around their
buildings. The exports of doors
and sashes and made up wooden
ware generally, together with the
metal fittings and fixtures that
go with these things are
enormous. In structural iron
goods the exports are light, which
would argue that Africa is not yet
anxious to have very tall buildings.
Ordinarily the time of the ship's
passage from here to the African
ports is about thirty days, it is
cheaper to ship freight from here
to those ports than from England.
The freights are less. One feature
of the trade of England and America
with South Africa is the difference
in their terms of sale. English
merchants, the commission
houses of this city, say, are ready
to give six months credit to the
African dealers, whereas American
houses draw promptly for all
shipments and the financing is
done at the London offices, which
simplifies matters for a New York
There are said to be about twenty
commission houses in New
York sending goods to South Africa,
and besides these there are, of
course a great many direct shippers,
many of the largo manufac
turing firms makiug their own
shipments. It is not so long ago
that. Boston did a large part of the
shipping done by the "United
States to South Africa, but now

NO FREE SPEECH.
Besides this direct influence on
the press, the influence of brute
force, the Ministry of the
Interior exercised during that period
another influence on the authors
whicn, while indirect, was
even more latal to Russian literature,
so far as its talent is concerned.
Being thwarted in every
attempt to tell the truth, having
every manuscript mutilated and
sometimes entirely shorn of even
common sense by the red ink of
the censor, the authors began to
change their style, to write meta
phorically, to clothe their thoughts
in all kinds of allegory in order to
deceive the censor and to let the
public read between the lines.
Straightforward talk very soon became
unknown. In every article,
especially in articles on internal
questions, the reading public had
to find out what the author meant
by the allegories, what he intended
to convey by his mysteries,
roundabout phrases; but generally
the authors, being more talented,
more acute in their use of language
than the censors, succeeded; the
articles appearing in print were
understood, and the Ministry ot
the Interior could only gnash it
teeth in powerless rage. But
such a course demoralizes the an
tlior; he -gets accustomed to it,
and very soon ceases to understand
himself. Many a great
talent was mined, bereft of its
power and influence, by this pernicious
custom. yet there was no
other way, if one wished to express
himself. ARussian,in Jul
THE COLLEGE "YELL."
A young man only two years out of
college is under the treatment of a surgeon
in a great city for voice-failure.
For many weeks this young man has not
spoken aloud, and he is foi bidden Or
attempt speaking for weeks to -come.
The surgeon's knife has been applied to
his vocal chords several times. He is of
Titan mould and has a record as au
athlete He has managed somehow to
keep up with his business thus far, but
his strength appears to be tailing, and
he will probably have to take to his bed
for a few days at least before he eau get
Upon inquiry it has been found that
severe throat troubles, similar to that
from which this young men is suffering,
aie on die rapid increase, and hoarseness
and temporary loss of voice.of a different
type from the like weaknesses which ac
company the old-fashioned "cold," are
alarmingly frequent The surgeon who
has been mentioned says that his patient's
difficulty, and nearly all of the
scores of cases which have come under
his notice, have arisen from what is
known as the "college yell."
The college yell of olden days was a
comparatively simple matter. It was
noisy and long-continued, but it did not
approach the sustained, complicated,
aud ear-splitting combination
now prevalent. This ebullition,
though called, as above, tho "college"
yell, is by no means confined to educa
tional institutions Every ' scrub" ball-team
on eery vacant lot, and every
"mission baud" has its own peculiar
war-cry. Even the young ladies have
their !" finales to rhymed
yell-prologues, reciting the strong points
of their seminaries and tennis-clubs and
boating associations. The youth of our
land seem to have organized en masse
and every organization has its character
istic shall it be called by so refined a
name as "shout" ? "Bellow" would be
even more expressive than "yell "
Uuder these circumstances it is not
strange that the vocal chords of our
young people are suffering, and are even
in danger of extinction. The general
sentiment is that their outbursts provide
a safe nud perfectly moral vent for their
superabundant animal spirits. People
are called cruel who find fault with
them but throat-weakness and
lead to dangerous diseases, and
must not be allowed to go unchecked.
Experts tell us that at least half of
the human race do not breathe correctly
A much larger proportion do not know
how to properly utter their words, or.
rather, use their voices. Abdominal
breathing and the art of speaking
through a well-opened throat are rare
accomplishments; but the learned say
that if our boys and girls would only
breathe and shout in the proper manner
they could make just as much noise as
in tlie wrong way, and could 'yell"
from .morning till night witiiout any ill
etreuts upon their, throats.
The ball-team and the mission band
may not find available the instruction
uid the training which will teach them
to "yell'1 scientifically and without harm,
but our schools imd colleges should certainly
see to it that, since their students
are allowed, and even encouraged to
liave "yells," they are taught to utter
them in the most approved) way. Our
proferora of "elocution and
ture" .would do well to devote.themselves

The Unanimous Declaration of the Thirteen
United States of America.
When, in the course of human events,
it becomes necessary for one people to
dissolve the political bands whirh have
connected them'with another, and to as
sume among the powers of the earth, the
separate and equal station to whidi the
laws of nature and of natuie's God entitle
them, a decent respect to the opinions
of mankind requires that they
should declare the causes which impel
them to the separation.
AVe hold these truths trf be self-evident:
that all men are created equal,
that they are endowed by their Creator
with certain unalienable rights; that
among these are life, liberty and the pursuit
of happiness. That to secure these
rights, governments are instituted among
men, deriving their just powers from the
consent of the governed ; that whenever
any form of government becomes destructive
of these ends, it is the right of the
people to alter or to abolish it. and to institute
a new government, laying its foundation
on such principles, and organizing
its powers in such form as to them shall
seem most likely, to effect iheir safety
and happiness, Prudence, indeed, will
should not be changed for light and transient
causes ; and accordingly all experience
hath sliown. that mankind are
more disposed to suffer while evils are
suflerable, than to right themselves by
abolishiug the forms to which they are
accustomed. But when a long train of
abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably
the 6aaie object, evinces a design to
reduce them under absolute despotism,
it is their right, it is their duty to throw-oil'
such go eminent, and to provide new
guards for their future security, feueh
has been the patient sufferance of these
colonies ; and such i& now the necessity
which constrains them to alter their former
systems of government. "-The history
of the present king of Great Britain
is a history of repeated injuriesand usurpations,
all having in direct object the of
establishment ol an absolute tyranny
over these states. To prove this, let
facts be submitted to a candid world.
He has refused his assent to laws the
most wholesome and necessary for the
He has forbidden his governors to pass
laws of immediate aud pressing importance,
unless suspended in their operation,
till his assent should be obtained;
and when so suspended, he has utterly

refused to pass other laws for the accommodation
of large districts ot people, unless
those people would relinquish the
right of representation in the legislature
a right inestimable to them, and formidable
to tyrants ouly.
He has called together legislative bodies
at places unusual, uncomfortable, and
distant from the repository of their public
records, for the sole purpose of fatiguing
them into compliance with his measures.
He has dissolved representative houses
repeatedly, for opposing, with manly
firmness, his invasions on the rights of

Nor have we been wanting in attentions
to our British brethren. We have
warned them, from time to time, of attempts
by their legislature to extend an
unwarrantable jurisdiction over us. We
have reminded tnem of the circumstances
of our emigration aud settlement here.
We have appealed to their native justice
and magnanimity, and w e have conjured
them by the ties of our common kindred
to disavow these usurpations, which
would inevitably interrupt our
and correspondence. They too
have been deaf to the voice of justice and
of consanguinity. We must, therefore
acquiesce in the necessity which denounces
our separation, and hold them,
as we hold the rest of mankind enemies

We, therefore, the representatives of
the United States of America, in general

Supreme Judge of the world, for tho rectitude
of our intentions, do,

declare, that these united colonies are,

from all allegiance to the British crown,
aud that all political connexion between
them and the slate of Great Britain is,
and ought to be, totally dissolved ; and
that, as free aud independentstates, they
have full power tb'levy war, conclude
peace, contract alliances, establish commerce,
and to do all other acts and things
which independent states may of right
do. And for the support of this declara

of Divine Providence, we mutually

FACTS FOR FARMERS.
Teach your horses to act promptly
when you speak to them; by doing so you
may save yourself much annoyance.
To do the best work in keeping down
the weeds the cultivation should be
commenced before the weeds get well
When a horse has frequent fits of colic
it indicates chronic indigestion, and
care should be taken in feeding and watering.

WHAT DUBOIS THINKS.
Senator Dubois, before leaving St.
Louis, upon the adjournment of the
National Republican convention, said:
'The Democrats now liave an opportunity
to redeem the pledges which they
have been making to the people for so
many years. We offer them Senator
Teller in the utmost good faith. The
fight for currency reform cannot be won
th js year with anybody else. With him
at the head of the ticket, bearing the
Democratic standard, and with the
of tnat party at his back, we

will be "with them. But they have not
yet brought that man forward, and they
caa't do it simply because they have-not
got him. The South will support xeiiei, ,
ana there we have 125 votes that need I
no-attention With him as a leader, a
combination of the South and West
could be brought about that would be
the controlling influence in national affairs
for half a century "
A DOG IRON WORKER.
Kejs, the canine employe of theUnion
Iron Works, met with an accident recently
by which his front right leg was
broken, says the San Francisco Exami
nur. Keys has been looked upon by
the officers of the iron works as one of
the regular workmen for about four
years. He is a dog of no particular
Iwauty, and his pedigree would not be
considered by dog fanciers, but he
wonderful intelligence. He makes
the Potrero Police Station his home, and
he is the pet of Lieut Bennet, but near
ly every workman in the ship building
concern claims the friendship of the
At the first tap of the gong every
morning Keys has reported for duty at
the gates of the Union Iron Works, and
he has never left until a full day's work
had been accomplished. He was particularly
useful in the ship yard and in
the boiler shop, and the foremen of these
departments eay he was more valuable
to them than a man for doing certain
kinds of work. He could crawl through
small holes in boilers and about ships,
and his particular work was to carry
tools, bolts, nuts, rivets and other small
articles needed by workmen who had
cawled into such places, and to have
them creep back and forth for which
w ould have caused considerable loss of
t:me. Keys thoroughly understood his
ork, and he was always on hand when
needed- Recently a steamer was placed
on the dry dock for repairs, and the dog,
realizing that his services might be
needed, by the workmen, was climbing a
ladder to the dock whan ho slipped and
fell about twenty feet The men picked
him up, and making a stretcher of some
pieces of canvas carried him to the police
station and sent for a physician to set the

Don't Let The Horn Worms
Destroy Your Tobacco.
A New Preventive!
The hand-picking of tobacco worms is a
thing of the past, if the claims of the
"N. S. J." Co., Richmond, Va., be
true and their claims seem to be well
Not only is the labor and worry saved
but the farmer gets a greater number
of pounds of tobacco and a better
quality by the use of "N. S. J."
No apparatus is needed save a 10c sifter.
The proprietors propose to give free
of cost, under certain and reasonable
conditions, several hundred boxes of
the compound (each box enough for
one acre), and tobacco growers would
do well to write the Company at once
for particulars. 1-12
