OUGHT TO BE BEMEDIED.
. l.effinlnlJoM lbal Driven Away Capital.
(Manufacturers1 Record, Sept. 28.)
Tbe Herald, ot Spartanburg. S. C, states
tbat one of tbe largest cotton mill companies
in Massachusetts, which recently decided U<
build a mill in tbe South, made a careful in
vestlgatlon. through its attorneys, of the legislation
of several southern Stales bearing on
manufacturing interests. Experts were also
teal lO inveiUKRie uie uuvauuigoi ui various
parts of the South ?* a site for a cotton mill.
The report of the latter, no the Herald say6,
was favorable to South C*rollua, hut the attorney
reported that the laws of that state
were more unfriendly to such an enterprise
than those of any other State ia the South.
The result was that the company decided to
abandon Ita lntefitlou of building In South
Carolina and to buitd In Georgia. If these
facts are correct It will be well for South Carolina
to benln to pay some attention to legislation
bearing on manufacturing corporations.
Since the foregoing was written the statements
made have been confirmed by the following
dispatch from Boston:
"The big new mill of the Massachusetts Cotton
Company will be built lu Georgia. That
much Is decided after considering applications
Irom over 2U0 places scattered through
every State in the South. The Northern
characteristics of the Slate aud its laws,
which are more favorable to manufacturing
enterprises than iboxe of most of the Southern
Commonwealths, are the causes which
largely led to this decUlon. Just what part
of Georgia will be selected is uncertain, except
that it will be In the northern section,
some where probably between Rome una Macon.
Some of the most successtul cotton
manufacturing ooncerus lu the South are located
lu the Piedmont teglon of South Carolina
around Spartanburg, but Tlllmaulsm,
etc.. Is so rife aud political conditions In the
Stale are so peculiar a6 to make capitalists

Stale of Georgia, and oilers good facilities, us

Some location In this district will doubtl?i>H
be cboseD. The details of tbe mill have
Jet to be determined. Ax tbe company han
ust Increased It# capital from #1.800 000 to
92,400,000, it 18 likely to be a lurge plant."
As a set off to this bosh about factories go*

sentlug the good nnme of South Carolina and
tbe laws ibertof, we will be glad lor the
Manufacturers' Record to explain bow Geor

large cotton mill.

Bat if any provide not for his own, and esprialiy
for those til bis own house, he hath denied the faith,
and is worse than an infidel?I Timothy v: S.
The preacher talks to as ol little else than
faith ; it therefore remains lor the layman to
talk of the practical affairs of life.
The preacher speaks of the spiritual life,
ana of hopes beyooU the grave.
The business (.(looking after the temporal
affairs. Is lell almost entirely to those of us
who are less familiar with the seorets of the
Almighty, and who, because of uur lack of
supernatural knowledge, and a "allure to |
come Into close communion with Him whose .
pavilion is darkness, must see after the everyday
matters, which effect our life, not only In i
this world, but In the world to which we are
all hastening. ,
TheBlble.asa whole, teaches a symmetrical
religion?a beautiful faith, a loving hope, and
the necessity of making an houest, earnest
Saint Paul laught faith. Saint John taught <
love, Saint Jame* taught works, aud so ought (
preachers aud laymen to preach faith,
love and works. Either without the other (
good qualities falls short of the true measure
which we should attain. ,
The duty of providing for one's household ,
being of drst importance?even before that of
faltu?we. as individuals, should look around >
as, and sweep before our own doors. We
should diligently enquire if we are faithfully
and successfully, laying up something for tbe
"rainy day," wbicb Is sure to come to eacb
one of us.
If we have made diligent effort and bave
failed to master a reasonable success, we
should enquire within?entertain a lew honest
doubts as to viur methods?and see if we
caunot in future avoid those dangers, excesses,
wastes and misapplication or energy,
thai bave heretofore worked against us and
kept us poor.
There is plenty of land in this country to
give every man a home?if he works for It,
and earns It.
There is a sufficiency of all the good things
of this life to bring comfort and happiness to
all. If you are energetic aud nractice self-denial
for a time, while managing your attalrs
wisely, more or less success will come to you.
Let no young man say that be could prosper,
If he bad money. Tbe test of real merit
Is to gel money, and then to manage It profitably
to blmseli, to his family, to his cburcb
and to bis country.
Almost anybody can make money, but
there are comparatively few who know how
to keep It, or how to expend it to the best advantage.
Too many want to buy the first
thing they come to, without waiting lor their
pile to Increase so that they can, later on,
buy some valuable thing.
In whatever business in life, every man
should save his money until he can buy some
money-producing article, namely: Bank
sux-k, town bonds, Mate b >nds, mortgages
on laud or the title to real estate.
No matter whether the youug man tolls In u
Ihe office, in the shop, in the store, or In the b
field, lie should save a part of his earnings,
aud whatever he saves he should deposit in h
oank. No matter about the small interest
at first. The main thing is to have a nest egg,
nod eacb year tovadd a Utile to tbe pile.
Nearly all of the rich and prosperous men of
the country commenced life poor, aud they
mnrln lhhtr Rfnrt frmn vprv Rmnll InonmeR.
Their capital in youth was good sense, lu- 1
dustry and economy, and now they are eDjoy- d
lug the good things they laid away In youth, j
Like the busbHtidraan, they sowed good seed, ,
and their harvest is abundant.
Let no man abuse fate, because of his own t
poor estate, and let no man be envious of a ,
prosperous neighbor. Each man Is <uore or o
less the architect of his own fortune. e
He that flndeth wisdom fludeth a good ?
"Length of days In her right hand; and in ,
her left hand riches and honor." J
Therefore, let Mil consider their ways, and t
let litem provide the means whereby tbey f
may in future promote their own happiness
aud advance their Master's kingdom. Let r
not the lesson of the virgins be lost on any. t
In order that we may be independent In our ?
own estates, and that we may be able to enjoy
the great satisfaction which comes to us in ?
dispensing good gifts, let us in youth learn to e
set the true value on money. r
That our lamllles may be comfortable, and
tree from the sufferings and privations of 8
poverty, we should lay away something for c
their support. ?
That they may be educated and enjoy the
good things of this Hie, and to be better pre- 1
pared aud more truly titled for the life to 'J
come, we are admonished to save our money, v
to avoid extravagance, and shun the excesses
whereby our KQbstance is squandered. t
An old man without money when bis pow- o
er to labor has ceased, may sometimes feel c
that he Is like broken furniture, neither .
a/wl onnnoh fnr nat? nnr Kail ormnirh In ho I
thrown away, bui best nulled for banishment t
lo the garret or the cellar. Q
In order thai the farmer may make his first
hundred dollars, let him now gather his 1m- t
raense crop of grass delore the frost. Let v
him see thai It noes not to waste. Lei him ^
put Uln his barn, and then let htm feed it to ,
slock during the winter. The stock will have u
u cash value next Spring. A good uillk cow I
always commauds a good price, and a cash ..
buyer may always be bad. The same may be
said o( good beef cattle, U
Let htm sow oats, wheat, barley, etc., as bis i
needs may suggest. In this way be rimy save _
the expense of feeding his horse on corn
which be can sell for cash, or for which he V
must pay a very high price, If he has to buy It o
in the Spring.
Let him fatten a bog or two. But let him ^
put the sty far irom the bouse and not too &
near the spring or well. Nothing Is more e
dangerous 10 health than a pig pen.
Many men nave amassed fortunes at farm- 1
lug and there Is no good reason why other a
men should Dot prosper, if tbey practice the 1;
methods of economy and Industry which .
brought thrift to their Dredeoessors. 1
It is true that cotton Is low In price. The r
samn is true of nearly everything else, except J
in tbb matter of mechanics' and laborer's
wages. In many instances they are as high .
today as they were years ago. t
In connecllon with this we copy a short ar- f
tide from the Yorkvllle Yeoman :
In thinking of the low price of cotton and other J:
products now prevailing It will bo interesting to read ^

shown by the American Grocer in Its market reports j
?f the same dates in these two years. The prices are

What hinders you from accepting t
Christ? It is very certain that God rJ
does not; there is no divine "decree," f
either secret or revealed, that stands in a
your way. On the couutary, there is a t
glorious decree that whosoever believ.'s J
on the Lord Jesus Christ shall be saved.
Nothing in the Bible?if you read
it in its full scope and with honest
eyes? can hinder you. And if you (
are determined to break ofTfrom your j
sins and to obey Jesus Christ, it is not .

earth, or of any devil iu hell, to pre- g
veutyou from becoming a Christian.
The only effectual hindrance to any r
man's becoming a Christian lies in tils t
own heart. When Jesus knocks at f
I he heart's door, and asks admission,
it is something inside tlie heart?not ,
outside?that locks the door and keeps j
the Saviour out. That something may
be a flimsy pretext, or a powerful lust; |
but every real hindrance that keeps a
sinner from accepting Christ lies in
that sinner's own heart.
A wavering mind, a waut of trust in
God, begins the call to evil, for, as a
ship without a helm is driven of the c
waves now here, now there, so the
careless man is tried that lays aside b
his plan of life.?Thomas a Kempls. <

There is a fatal mistake, I believe,

Iren may, from the earliat years of
utelligence, be taugbt to distinguish

iptitude toward things spiritual, than
