Latest and Most Interesting Inven
tion to Make Paper From
The manufacturo of paper from the
fiber of the cotton stalk ls one of thc
latest and most interesting inventions
of tho now century, says Harvle Jot
dan in Manufacturers Reord. For
many years export Inventors leave been
busily engaged experimenting with
tho cotton stalk, aud now it appears
from recent developments that their
labors and expenditures of monoy are
to be rewarded with sigual and strik
ing suocess. Not only have these in
vestigations passed tho experimental
stage but they aro rapidly being shap
ed to bo plaood Into practloal opera
tion. It has been ur questionably de
monstrated that all grades of paper,
from tho best form of linen grade to
the lowest, cr,n be manufactured from
tho cotton stalks. In addition to thin,
a variety of by products, suoh as alco
hol, nitrogen, material for gun cotton
and smokel ss power, oan also be se
cured In paying quantities. Tho time
ls not now far distant when paper
plants equipped with all modern ma
oulnery and devices for making paper
will be built and placed In operation
throughout the oottun growing states
of the South. Tho establishment of
these mills for the manufacture cf pi
per from oottou stalks will at once de
velop a new industry of quite enor
mous proportions of a waste product
whloh at the pres; ut time has com
parative little or no value. It will
prove the entering wedge of checking
the present incr. using cost of paper,
whloh is becoming such a burden
upon the newspaper industry of thc
It ls estimated that on an acre of
land producing a halo of cotton at
least one ton of stalks eau be gather
ed. Upon this basis of calculation
this new industry can annually dopend
upon from 10,000,000 to 12.000,000
tons of raw material. This will not
only furnish necessary supplies to meet
all home demands, but a so permit of
the export of pulp or iinished pro
duots to forelgu countries. At the
present time there ls approximately
.287,000.000 Invested in paper mills
in the United States, with but few
plants loodttd in the South. The bulk
Of tho material going into the manu
facture of paper at thc present time
ls spruce pine, and which is annually
beoomlng more expensive In the deple
tion of tue forests and the high pric3s
whloh suoh timber commands in the
market for other uses. Tho utiliza
tion of a waste produot suchas he
cotton stalk, manufactured into com
mercial paper, will bc a boon of lncsti
matable value to the whole country.
Tho practical effect of this new In
vention will bc to Increase tho present
value of the South's cotton crop near
ly $100,000,000 annually. The grow
ors will be amply paid for the expense
of romovlng tho stulks from their
fields and delivery to tho paper plants
and In addition thereto receive a pro
fit on tills produot of their labor. In
tho southwestern seetlon of tho cotton
belt the nov; lnoustry will especially
bo of vallie and a blessing. With the
removal of thc cotton htalks from thc
fields in the early fall tho death knell
of tho boll-wcevll will bc sounded and
its present devastating Inlluenccs re
duced to a minimum. So that from
every standpoint thc speedy develop
ment and extanslon of this now indus
try will be welcomed In all seotlonsof
tho cotton bolt. Paper manufactured
from tho cotton stalk ls of the strong
est texture and softest Knish, it ls
reported that several plants will bc
oreoted during tho next few months
In certain sections of thc South whloh

The State board of eduoatlon last
week completed the adoption of text
books to be used in the pubilo sohools
of tho State for tho next live years. It
is said tbat the list solcoted will com
pare quite favorably with the book
adoptions In other States, and lt is
also claimed that this ls the best Hst
wbloh South Carolina has bad.
There has always been more or less
of a ditlerenoe between tho books used
Ip the public sohools In tho country
and thone used in the graded sohools,
bub many of these di lt or onces have
beeu eliminated lu this adoption and
lt is said that tho Hst selected will do
for any olty school In tho State.
Governor Hoy ward presided at the
meeting and State Superintendent
Martin, by reason of his having been
tn tho sohool work as a teacher and
subsequently has been able to give so

of the merits of text books, c ff ?red
valuable suggestions. The oiher

Uuder the new rogulatlois made
by the State board of eduoatlon, there
will be established In Columbia a cen
tral depository for the handling of
these text-books. Tills means that
prcbably $100,000 a year in uow busi

Sensational ButtH HAVO noon Brought

The prosecutions the government ls
about to begin can very properly bo
olassed as sensational. They aro said
to be against the Standard Oil Com

I seems these ooporatlons arc not to

sponslblo positions are to be.
Mr. CaB8at tho president of tho
Pennsylvania is mentioned as one of
tho railroad mon who will be prosecut
ed. His trial would attractattonblon
in Europe as well as in this country,
since there aro fow bettor known men
in the tlnauolal world than he. Tho
trial would be a notable ono for the

It han been intimated that lt la not
thc purpose to prosecute any of tho
heads of tho Standard Oil Company,
but that Intimation isn't authorita
tive. It wouldn't be surprising if tho
heads of that trust were attaoked.
It ls dltlloult to see why the president
of the Pennsylvania railroad should
be prosecuted and not the chief men
of the Standard Oil company.
In Wall street it is said the Stan
dard OU Company realizes it must
adopt new methods of dolrg business
that its preseut method cannot be 'pur
sued any longer with safety. Uenoo,
lt ls proposed to greatly lnorease the

will bo published regularly and tho
policy of seoreoy will be abandoned.
It this lutormatlon ls correct it
would seem that tho great trusts are
on tho run aud that tho government
has but to pursue its advantage to
bring them to terms. A few days
will doubtless show what tho pro

whether or not the trusts aro ready
to abandon the fight and agree to

The Sumter Watohman and South*

bo tl io esteem In wi doh Dr, Clifton
was held by the oltlzens of Sumter
was presented Sunday night week ago
at tho First Baptist Church, whither
BOO or 1000 portons went to attend a
service in his memory. The audlenoe
was mado up of a multitude who
seemed, for the time at least, to ha>e
forgotten or Ignored the faotthat they
were not all members of the same re
ligious body, i
The momorlal service was conduct
ed by the pastor of the church, Rev.
0. G. Brown, D. D., in which the
meeting was held. Ile read a paper
concerning Dr. Clifton, which he had
written for tho Christian Advocate,
and thou followed it up with a talk
of fifteen or twenty minutes upon
some of the traits willoh characterIz
cd tho lamented dead.
Tho tearful eyes and solemn facen of
tho multitude uttested tho fact tbat
they were heartily In sympathy with
tho uttered words. Dr. Clifton's wife
and ohlidren were present and express
ed their thanks to many over the faot
that such a meeting had been hold.
The choir had solcoted special song.,
for the occan'on, and tho muslo WOB

Thc annual military expenditures of
thc several great powers of tho world
aro enormous. A recent issue of thc
British Bluebook says the United
Kingdom spends for this purpose each
year $157,000,000; India, $100,000,000;
F rauco,tl27,000,000: Ger many $101,000,
000; Austria-Hungary $87,000,000;
Italy $58.000,000; Japan $24,000,000;
Russia 194,000,000; United States
$115,000,0^0. These amounts do not
include the amount paid in pensions
by any of tho governments named: The
United States, In addition to tho 115
000,000 named above, pays each year,
$140,000,000 In pensions to her old
soldier. Including what she spends
for pensions, the United States spends
more than any other government for
military purposes. Our military bur
den is Gie heaviest horn by any nation
in the world. When we contemplate
the vast sum which the so-called
Christ ian nations of the earth spend
In*,training soldiers, building ships,
guns and other engines to destroy men
wc are almost forced to the conclu
sion that our profession of hoing fol
lowers of thc meek and lowly man
who had not where to lay lils head
while on earth is false If we were
His followers lu fact we would have
no use for these tilings and the money
spent for them could he used for
other and nobler purposes. This vast
sum of money properly used would
banish poverty from the cai th and
would bring joy and happiness to thc
world instead of death and destuotlon
as it now does.
Whiskey in K* UH un.
As every body knows Kansas is
one of the three so-called prohibition
States, but lt will bc seen from what
a Kansas naper says below there is no
trouble to get whiskey out there. A
man hy the name of C. S. Jewel, of
New Castle, Pa , wrote to th" Appeal
to Reason,.a weekly paper of large cir
culation puhl shed at Girad, Kansas,
the foilowieg lei ter:
"Prohibit lonlsts hore say t bat out in
Kansas t hey have no use for jails since
prohibition lias been adopted, ls that
The Appeal to Reason replied as
This will he news to Kansans. If
prohibition rules n Kansas it has not
been discovered, In this little town
we have live open saloons and there
arc some lifty or sixty saloons in the
county. Cur jails are just as full as
in Pennsylvania. Just as long OS pro f?t
can he made selling liquor it will he
sol t-according lo law or in violation
ol'law. In Kansas prohibition does not
prohibit.. Oin saloons are really a
greater menace than licensed saloons.
When it is known t hat about three
thousand people in Kansas hold Unit
ed Stales Internal Revenue licences
to retail whiskey and other liquors
thc statement of thc Kansas paper
can easily be believed.

tlie ordinary rate of speed they seem

through the wator as the eel don, but
(heir locomotion resembles that ot the
caterpillar except that lt ls far more
graceful, and MS they move and twist
the colors play along their sides and
backs as they do on the dolphin. Wbon
they dash at their prey at full speed
they move like an arrow, with their
heads and necks thrust straight before
them if they aro swimming under ftie
surface, or, If they are darting along
the top of the water, with their heads
elevated just enough to clear the
waves. When they ?re racing along

Ascertain how many ?re killed in this

Scientists once held to the opinion
that tho deadliness of the bite was due
not to the venom, Uko that of tho land
snakes, but to some property that
caused blood poison, as does the bite
ef many fishes which aro not poisonous
in themselves. But this opinion was
changed after the medical men on
board Uie British warship Algerlne had
made caroful observations of a sailor
who had boon bitten. They proved
that tl io snakes were directly poison
ous ?nd that they carry fangs charged
with venom exactly like the cobra.
Tho opon ocean ls the homo of the
sea suakos. They do not even ascend
the rivers. Their favorito haunts are
the arms of the sea, which separate
tho Islands of China, India aud tho
south Pacific seas. They don't stay
near the shores, but remain at some
distance from tho land. They are luca
pablo of much movement on land, and
after wriggling about and biting sav
agely tiiey will stay still till they die.
They aro found In many part? of
tho world - in the Indian and Pacific
oceans, from Cape of Good Hope and
Madagascar to the western shores of
Panama and from New Zealand to
Japan, In the hay of Bengal ?nd the
sea around Nlcobars, Molucca, Timor
end New Quinos.-New York Herald.
Nearly nil the doublo flower? of gar
dens were first found wild. Double
buttercups, double primroses, double
falsies, doubie roses ?nd roany other
tilings were first discovered among
their wild fellow? ?nd Introduced Into
tho gardens. The florist, however, can
produce double flowers. He watches
this tendency in nature. If a flower
usually ha? five petals, ?nd be dis
covers that some of the ?tarnen? h?vo
somewhat of a petal-like character, the
pollen ls taken from these Sewers and
others In ? normal condition fertilized
with this pollen. The tendency, ?nee
started, 1? then given te the progeny.
Almost ?ny species of plant will in this
way be capable of producing double
flowers. It ls surprising that, with this
knowledge, more attempt? at this lin?
of Improvement In ordinary garden
flowers ?re not made.
