The Dallas Commercial says
the New York merchants have
announced their "ititention to
withdraw theii commercial
agents or drummers. This it
regards as a move iu the right
direction, because the solicting
business is overdone. Tho pub
lic'ure made to bear the entire
expense of the system; the coun
try is literally overrun with
agents ot various kinds. We
may remark that in the INt of
of agents the lightning rod men
take the precedence, then the
lite insurance agent, out ins
business is on the wane, the
sewing machine man, the book
ageut, the map peddler, .the
newspaper canv;issers, the chiro-
podist, the man with the lung
tester, the patent soapi-t, the
man with the patent churn, the
patent gate man, the patent
medicine man aud many others
too numerous to mention. The
expenses ot all these men have
to bo-paid by the consumers of
the various articles Suld by
them. Many ot tho goods
handled by agents are sold at
prices in many instances one
hundred percent, over and above
what the article could he bought
tor at the manufactory for cash.
The system ot selling gooda
to merchants in the country by
drummers has been in vogue for
many years, and we believj it
has been found to work satis
factorily to the wholesale deal
ers. It, however, the merchants
find they can do business with
out the employment of traveling
salesman or drummers, ami find
it to their interest to patruuize
tho newspapers a little more
liberally, the publishers will
have no cause to complain.
Georgia has lorty cotton fac
tories, nearly all of which are
making money for their owners.
Texa3 has no cottcn factories
"worthy of the name, although""
there are one or two mills dur
ing a profitable business, their
product is so small as to be of
no importance. Texas cotton
stands at the head of the list
with spinners, and -there is no
reason in the world why we
should not. have as successful
cotton mills as Georgia. The
day is not far distant when,tlm
manifold advantages of this
State will be fully realized by
capitalists, and the advantages
she offers fully utilized. It is
only a question of time, aud a
short time at that.
Cremation. The Galveston
Civilian, of tile 7th inst, just
received, has an editorial on this
subject, in which it tavors cre
mation as being f.ir preferable
and more healthy for the living
as applied to Galveston, where
the nature of the soil and the low
ness of the laud prevents bury
ing of the dead to a greater
depth than about two "feet.
After a man is dead it makes
buttle difference to him what
becomes of his mortal remains.
The question of their disposal
is in the hands of the living.
Popular sentiment at the present
day favors tae burial of the
dead. Hodern science and an
advanced public opinion m ly at
some future time adopt crema
tion as the means ot disposing
ot their remains, particularly in
