"The revivu'g will have a laitinK ef
fect lor good, I thick," said a leading
member of the Young Men's Christian
Association yetterday.
"How many were converted?"
"Fiom the time Moody and 8ankey
came until Towner and Kayford de
parted this morning the number of
converts reached about 400. The
names of 300 riVe registered, and there
are fatly 100 more whose names the
ministers failed to note in the
excitement of the moment. Be
sides, thfre are 10CO or morn who
were deeply imbued wltu religious
feivor, and a grta many of them will
join some church. The seeds are
scattered broadcrut. Some of them
will rot in the ground; others will
spring up and rlaurixb and berr
flower and fruit. It wi'l take
some nursing, perhaps, but the e
will be a rich harvest never
theless. These revivals, you see.
bring together ptople of all denomina
tions, lines are drawn."

"No; be is net attached to any
ehutch. He was secretary o! the Maa

minor pott, and gave it up to become
a Methodist."
"Has he any eonnectioa with
"Yes; he is employed by Mr. Moody.
Often Mr. Moody cannot stay long in
one place, so be begins the good work
and Mr. tayfard lakes it op where he
leaves off."
"How were the evangelists paid?''
" "They made no charge, hut some
thirg was given them. When the
movement was tint it augurated the
churches vied with each other in rais
ing money to pay the expenses, and
$750 was collected in a few hours.
The coet of fitting up the Cumberland
church win coasidcrable, and the tar
pet, tio, had been ruined during the
Sam Jones meetings. It was nt.t fair
to make that church pay the whole
cost of a new one."
"Do Moody and Fankey and Say

"Yes. . They were cheap, though.
But the sals was, of course, large."

eiii.'v;etions to the Southern phntor;
theiefore. be it
liaohed by the Memphi Cotton Ej -diange,
That we heartily indorse the
resolutions ndv.'H'ng the planting of
oue-tl ird cotton and nore grain and
grasses. Tbe present price of cotton
makes its production unprofitable to
tbe Southern farmer, and tbe price al

( 1 1886-87 demands of the producer
his co-opeta'ion in an effort to defeat
the machinations of manipulators
who hope to still further increase
their gains it the expense of the
Henlord, That nnited action on tbe
part of the planters of the South, by
decreasing the acreage tf cottou and
devoting the same to "diversified
crote," will add materially to their
ptoipurity, and roaliz for them r. fair
valuation for the coit3n that is pro
llrmh-eii, That we recommend to the
several Cotton Kgchang of Southern

on this important surject as will, in
fieir judgment, best promote the
agricultural interests of the South.

In cur notice of the annual t ite

24 01. The report contiitiB mnch sta
tistical information of great inteiett,
but iB necesBAiily tco voluminous to
publish in fu 1. Among the prominent
(eatuioi is tbe cost cf operating ex
penses, being but 5?) por cent, of the
gross earnings cf the company. When
the fact is borne in tr.ind that this
sreaf artery tf co-nmerce runs over
700 miles south cf the Ohio river,
through a country but pa-tially devel
oped in its resources, it speaks volumes
for tbe integrity and inte ligence of its
economic management. A compaia'.ive
statement for the past ten years show
a steady decrease in the opo atiug ex
penses. From a cost of 21 2 cento nor
mils run by engines in 1870, we iiad
it cut do ii to 11 27 cent! for the year

Laod andAsnUt In Cattle
The present low price of cotton and
catton-eeed makes it imperative upon
tbe planter to leave no means untried
that will add to bia revenues. An
Aei'BALreporter yesterday interviewed
a gentleman who makes suggestions of
an important character which, if fol
lowed np, promise to lead to results
largely beneficial t) the cotton-plant-ing
interest. Tbe fo'lowing questions
and rep'ies will more clearly indicate
what is claimed can be ascoraplished
by hulling cotton seed at plant itions
and noting tbe hulls lo feed cattle:
"What is the extjnt of the revolu
tion you propose to effect by persuad
ing the planter to 1- ull his cott m-tced
himself, instead of having it done at
cotton-seed mills?"
"The present method of planting
cotton exclusively is ruinous to the
toil. One of the best ginners in this
city has told me recently that in the
la' t tn years a certain piece of land,
thirty acres in tx'ent, has depreciated
in productive poser one-third cf a
tale ti the acre, resulting in his being
compelled to abandon the lease. Ths
exhaustion c f the soil can be prevent
ed by feeding tbe Imlfs of cotton-seed
to stock ou the plantation, unor tne
plan that now obtains, the seed is
sect to the millr, and the hulls are
there converted into luel, and the
ashes astd in the manufacture of rotp.
Thee hnllt contain properties which,
if fed t) dock aud rttarned to the
soil in the shape of manure, would
restore a large poit.on ot Hs tenuity.
"Are there any machines that enable
the p unter to do this, and to what ex
tert are they being need?"
"There is one now in use on planta
tions to a molified ext n' It can be
rua with two-horse power or less. It
takes the hall off ckan, and separates
the pure meat from the hull In hetter
sl ape than any hull-r now in use at
the mills. The mills will pay mre
for the decoiticated seed, and the s .v-
ing is fully o'J per cent in freight and
7-" per cent in sacks."
' "What is the cost ot such a ma
chine?" From J200 to $500, owing to its six?
and cauacitr."
"What is the total numberof ton? of
hulls saved to the planter by this
method ?"
"I'aklnga 6,0O0,0C0 l ulescropas a
basis, the saving to planters would he
1.0(H) 0t)0 tousof hulls, with as much
to the tin as l;av. I c'aim that f;ed
ing cotton-seed hulls to stock would
keep tbe ttick in better order during
the winter than the bett hay ever
raised. Cattle prefer the hulls to the
coltin-seed it 'elf. Cattw-seed hulls
abound in notash and pli03ptia.l t and
carbonacious matter that is all tolubln
in an animal's stomach, which is not
the faae with bav.
"What is its effect upon tha animal
in butter mating capacity a id propa
eating Dower?"
' Where an animal is fed exclusively
oa cotton-sed it caiaes prematura
dropping of calve. This Is avoided
by feeding the hul a. By mixing one
nonnd of oil meal to ten pounds o
titl's you have a food that produces
the richest milk and the rlnsNt butter
in double the quantity obtainable by
other feeds."
"What amoiintof hay, corn or other
fond croD3 would the hulls replace .
"It would ena'ile the planter to dis
pense with them entirely as feed fjr
cattle. The machine is Boconnruuteu
that, if desirable, a pnrtion tf the
meat may be left in tbe hull, so as to
avoid the necessity of purchasing
meal. I would only recommend this
in localities where access t a mill is
not convenient.
"Would a sack nl seed divested of
hulls brioir in much money to the
p'anter as if sold with the hulls inttct
as is now tbe cuetom?"
"A little more, because he saves the
freight of one-half of his product, and
gains 20 per cent, in the net revenue.
For instance, we will take a man who
has 10IK) tons of axed, which delivered
here nets him $!. less $J a ton for
freiirht. Th.tt will net him $00110.
Now, by hulling it, the same man only
sends ti msrket 500 Ions, for which he
gets Sis a ton. making iiHKIl), 'ess
freight, 500 at $3, or 1 500, leaving
him J7600. a profit of $ 151)0 in money
bv the hulling process, besides the
value of th hulls. Besides this, by
employing rel n'ers, which n'e now in
eutsces's'iil cippr, t on, h can save an
other 51 to the ton in lint cotton."
"Aretheroany othei advantages to
be imined by the method yon sug
gest ?'
" Yfs, the geatet of a'l ; it will give
yon nn impure to elock-ralMn that
will be sure to result iu the emancipa
tion of the planter from the bondage
of debt due commission merchants. A
planter who raises cattle in sufficient
abundance is inattir of the situation
and independent of assistance from
merchants. Lit him raise cattle with
his waste hu t, and his independence
is but a matter of months."
One of tbe Ware to Fay a Doctor's
A detective baa been haunting the
Main street entrance of tbe Gayoso
hotel for a couple of days, but his vigi
lance has not yet been rewarded and
is not likely to be. Dr. L. B. Lewie,
who bai offices at the head of tbe
stairs, employed bim to mob scamp
who took him in to the extent of bis
feed, and tried to do more by means of
forged check. On e'a'.nrday last a
hi an who gave bis name ae J. N. Neal
son, and who hs been under tbe doc
tor's treatment for several days, asked
for his bill, and when the amouLt was
given him offered in payment a check
for $15 oa the State National Bank,
payable to "self," signed E. A. Thurs
ton and indorsed "J. N. Nealson" on
the back. Hit bill was several dollars
less than the amount called for on the
face of the check, and he seemed
somewhat disturbed when Dr. French
told bim he did not have the chamre,
and asked him t? call next day, re
taining the check, which be said he
would have cashed at the bank. Neal
son, if such wai his name, departed,
and the check was duly presented and
immediately pronounced a forgery.
The polio thought that perhaps Neal
son would call on the doctor for his
moDpy, thinking that the check was so
small tbe bank would overlook the
forgery, but he has evidently taken
alarm and fld.
