The Clingman Tobacco Cure.

Home is important :
Washington, D. CT, Sept. ,15, '85.
GenH T L Clingman:
My. Dear Sir: Last month I
scalded my hand with hot coffee,
causing the cuticle to peel off. I
promptly made a liberal application
to the wound of your "tobacco oint
ment," carefully wrapping my hand
in a handkerchief to exclude the air.
The effect was magical. In less than
fifteen minutes the pain completely
subsided, and my hand became well
in a week. Nothing surpasses your
great remedy for curing scalds and
burns, and my neighbors teJl me
that it is equally efficacious in rheu
matism and other ills. I know many
public men who swear by the "tob
acco remedy" as the devout Mussul
man does "by the sword of the
Your great discovery will cause
generations yet unborn' to thank
you. You have given the oft-den
ounced "tobacco" an enviable fame
makings it the chief stone of the
corner, so to speak. -Your achieve
ments; in arms and in statesman
ship, brilliant as they are, dwindle
into insignificance when compared
with the discovery , of jrour incom,
parable "tobtcco remedy." -.

A correspondent from Graham

"We have had the first frost this
morning to do any damage. "The
tobacco is all in the barns and pro
ducers well pleased with "the growth
and cure. Th is is Ethe first vear in
the tobacco business in this countv.
I believe the growth ot tobacco here
will prove mom successful thanin
the counties where frost has pie vail
ed this tail, the altitude liere being
sooner than in any county west of
the Ridge, which makes our spYing
earlier and fall season later."

THE LESSON TAUGHT BY OUR
r LATE ' FAIR VALUE OF.
s- t THE NIAGARA GRAPE.
. Messrs Editors: The generahtlis-
play of field,- orchard and vineyard
products at the Western N. C. Agri
cultural Fair, held at Ash eviile, was
very creditable to our mountain sec
tion. It could not be expected that
the society which is scarcely yet or
ganized should manage a display of
this character with the skill com
mon to those long accustomed to
make such displays. The uniform
excellence, however, of the material
shown was quite suggestive -of the
capacity of o'ir transmontane
plateau lo excel in several products,
notably, corn, Irish pot.it'v?? cab
oage, wheat, oats, rye, onio. beets,
kins, squashes, fcc, &c The dis
play of apples, late peaches, pears
and grapes, contained a significant
lesson in regard to some industries
which, I have nd doubt, will be of
great luture value to this mountain
section- Whenever our people pan
be brought to a proper appreciation
of orchard culture and fertilization
our orchard fruit will be without a
rivaL' And as to grapes, I have
long entertained the belief that our
mountain vallies and gorges con
tain soils and localities peculiarly
adapted to grape culture, and wine
making. There are many abrupt
mountain slopes, which by skilful
excavation could be made into wine
cellars which would insure a uni
form - temperature rarely, if ever,
foyui in ordinary localities in a
leveler country, I was especially
impressed with a new grape on ex
hibition - at the Fair Grounds, the
Niagara. The size of this grape is
above the medium. The clusters
are large and somewhat compact,
and a more delicious fruit it has not
been my fortune to meet with. In
the few berries which I had the plea a-
ure of testing, 1 did not perceive that
acrid matter about the heart and
seeds which I have sometimes met
with in some other varieties. This
grape brings fifteen cents per pound
in New York, and such a grape
promises the best results in our sec
tion for either the market or the
wine cellar, and I am glad to know
that Mr. S. C. Satterwaite, Aiken, S.
Cv is the Southern agent for the
sale of this grape in our sectifm, and
isirepared to-ak -4ibetl4r ms
witn parties desiring to plant vine
yards. It is to be hoped, Mr. Editor,
that our transmontane, people will
wake up to new methods, to more
active industry and to more pains-
king enterprise, and utilize the
woZVderful advantages with . which
natufhas blessed thim in climate
and tn capabilities of soil. Then
will our jiekl and garden products
reach that Superiority which is their
due, and ouV orchards and vine
yards stand witiout a rival.
