Tobacco Indnxtrr In North Carolina.
Tho following is from tho West Chester
(Pa.) Local News, and Is an oxtrnct
from a lecture delivered there by Willis
P. Hazzurd, before the Microsconicnl Society:
''Winston und Sulom being in
tho centro of a tobacco-growing district.
Iniyo factories aro erected, employing
ninny hands in manufacturing it into
various attractive market chapes. This
gives work to many people nnd relieves
tho community of what would otherwise
he an idlo neuro population. North
Carolina raised, in 1880, 27,000,000
pounds of tobacco. Tho tobacco is raised
by tho farmers and when cured ready
fur market nnd tied up in hands or bundles,
is brought to their favorite warehouse;
each grndo of tobacco as Rorted
by the farmer is placed in a pile threo to
four feet in diameter, on a circular mat
woven 6f straw, upon tho tloor. Upon
each pile is stuck a card with the weight
upon it as tested by tho auctioneer.
Promptly at tho hour of sale ho com
mences at ono end of a row and proceeds
with great rapidity to soil each lot
in itH turn ; li is tonmio, hung loosely in
tho middle, is worked with such volubility
that a stranger cannot comprehend
the fourth of what tie says. No time is
wasted on any lot, the bidding has to bo
very quick and spirited, and the buyers
being experienced manufacturers know
at once its value and aro prepared to
jjivo it. Tho color, tho sizo, tho aromn,
its tenacity, all of which aro matters re
quiring great experience in curing, nre
what regulate tho price. Somo lots will
ko for a few cents per pound, and from
thero at all prices up to $1.25. This lust
prico is Heldom reached, but the Governor
nnd myself stood chatting alongside
of a pile that wo wero told wim
something extra and would bring a great
price ; our curiosity led us to seo it sold.
Directly it was reached. It was started
at seventy-five cents and speedily
knocked down nt $1 25 amid great enthusiasm.
The pile was nbout four feet in
diameter and in conical shape about two
feet high, and brought S250, being 200
pounds. This wns part of tho crop of a
farmer, who threo yonrs before had taken
off tho hands of n previous purchaser
n farm of acres and
paid for tho lot $125. Ho put part of it
into tobacco and sold the first year $1,100
worth ; tho (second yoar, $1,300, and this
year over 3,000 pounds of tobacco nt an
average of seventy-four cents per pound,
realizing $2,300, nnd had enough left to
realizo $3,000. This Is only a specimen
of what may bo done by any of our own
farmers with enterprise sufficient to take
a little money with them and go down to
western North Carolina and settle. Great
attention is being givon to tho grasses,
wheat nnd oats, tobacco and corn. There
is a ready market for all tho hay that
can bo produced, nt high prices, as tho
railroads that penetrate through there
traverso every direction. Just to-day do
I read of a new lino from Chicago to
Florida, to bo made by building a connecting
link of twenty miles from
Emigrants will bo received with open
arms and kindly assistance if they aro of
a desirablo kind ; especially
with a littlo capital. Here they
will soon feel at home, for thoy will find
their own kind all around them. We
know of no moro promising section than
tho western portion of North Carolina
for tho industrious poor man, but more
certainly if ho has somo capital. Tho
climate is delightful und healthful, the
frosts moderate, and tho seasons long,
sheltered ns these lands are by tho high
range of mountains which separate this
portion of tho Slato from Tennessee
To resumo about tho tobacco. "Within
a fow minutes ufter tho tale of any man's
lots tho owner can slop up to the office
and ho will find tho account of sales ready
mado out and tho proper amount In a
check waiting for him. Tho thorough
and prompt business wny in which the
whole transaction in conducted is worthy
of all praise. Tho farmer can drive in
with his load of tobacco, and In hour or
two go homo with a check for it at tho
highest open market prico.
As soon 418 tho buyer is through with
his purchase at one'warehouso.and another,
or moro, his team Is driven to tho
warehouse; a truck is run under the side
of tho mat holding his purchase ; It is
deftly tilted on ; run to his wagon nnd
lifted in, and may in a few minutes bo in
tho process of manufacture.
Dr. Brown kindly showed us through
his factory, whoro several hundred
wero employed in getting it ready
or the consumer's market, and tho vari
ous processes wero shown to us, from tho
moistening and stripping tho leaf to its
packed Btato. Whilo every eflort is
mmlo to liuvo nil the processes cleanly,
wo can only say tlint tho urentest Iovoib

much reliflh after Boeing tho manipulations

"While In the country last winter my little
boy, three years old, was taken 111 with croup; it
seemed as If he would die from strangulation.

Ciieury rscTOttAL, a bottle of which was always
kept In the house. This was tried In small
ana frequent doses, and to our delight In less than
half an hour the little patient was breathing easily.

had saved my darling's life. Can you wonder at
