Look, for illus tration, at the State of Ohio the first of the wool producing States and you will find there are 187 woolen mills, distributed among 157 counties. The Western Stales seem to be taking the lead in this branch of industry. For instance, Ohio has 1S7 woolen millsj California has 10; Illinois, 99; Indiana, 157: Iowa, 9S; Michigan, 55; Missouri, 57; Oregon. 9; Wisconsin, 57, a o-rrre- . ., , gating, in these nine States alone, 749 woolen mills, consuming exclusively the wool nrodiiffd in thr.ir I'mmi'ofo - w v a & 11111UI.

In Mas sachusetts IU thousand persons are employed in manufacturing the mas terial and working it up into fabrics, while the numbers employed in agri culture is only about eighty thousand, hit a change of prosperity would soon come to us in North Carolina if the same proportions of her people ere thus employed in this State.

C, Jan. 4, 187!) Analysis of Soils. It bas.become common of late ytars to depreciate the value of soil analysis. The reasons for this are various, but comprehensively put, it is mainly be cause this application of science to agriculture has not answered the ex travagant anticipations of many, and because very few nonscientitic ex- Here are two additional witnesses The noted English farmer, John Piout, who has his office in Loudon and farms in the country near, and makes $'J,000 prolit on his crops, (43 per cent of the gross product), besides $4,500 as rent, says that ho derived great benefit from three soil analyses mads for him by Dr. Voelker at the outset. And Dr. Lawes, tlu renown ed proprietor of Rothamsted. one of i ..... . tne oiaesr, ana most iruitiui ol the European Agricultural Stations, who nas ueeu experimenting iorajyeais for the benefit and advancement of agriculture all over the world, has mr.de about 600 analyses of soils on his small experimental farm, and re grets that he could not have done more work of that sort. In a letter just received, he says: "We need to connect tbe various geological forma" tions with agriculture by means of careful analyses of the soils The in vestigations upon my own soi', which consists of 8 to 15 feet of jelljw clay, resting upon chalk, indicate that its fertility is entirely due to pre-existing vegetation, and that we depend about as much upon this for our food as we do for our fuel." And thus the study of the rocks, out of which all soils are formed, constitutes, according to the highest authority known, another cuamtrr, aim me iirsi, aim iiinuiiuifii- tal one, in a truly and thoroughly scientific and rational system of Agri- culture.

Madam Anderson the English pedestrian, who began at 8 p. m. ladr m Dec. 10, in Brooklyn, a walk of 2,700 quar ter miles in 2,700 consecutive quarter hours, day and night, successfully end ed her journey at 10 p. m on Jan. 13th, after being on her feet a month, lack ing two days. The last quarter of a mile was the fastest, being walked in 2 minutes, and 27$ seconds. The fol lowing may interest some who doubt that a woman can wralk C70 miles with, out stopping more than ten minutes at any one time. Meanwhile more ladies were con stantly arriving, and now not only the front row of 6eats all around the track, but a second and a third, and, before the afternoon was over a fourth and a fifth were packed closely with fair la dies, handsomely clad, bright and sparkling, and all profoundly interest ed in the laborious work of the game little member ol their sex. Little fa vors were handed to her; some comical all taiteful and neat. Whenever any were perfumed she eved them with suspicion, and justly, tor one day last week she had handed her by some un known person an exquisite nosecrav. which she thought, had a strong fra grance about it, and which on closer inspection, was fouud to contain chlo roform. Late in the afternoon Drs. Watts, Griffith and Stuart had a consultation about her condition. Dr. Stuart said her pulse was beating at sixty-nine, actually three pulsations less to the minute than that of persona in ordina ry health. The Doctor added, TIer physical condition is such that if her mind holds out, there is no telling how, long she could keep this up." At seven o'clock the garden began to fill. Mme. Andereon trudged mer rily along, and the little scattering claps and cheers of an hour ago now rolled out into a good square cheer. She sticks right to her work. Every lap she goes she is cheered to the echo, and, as she hears the joyful sound and sees all intent upon her, her face grows radiant with delight, and. forgetting all about being tired, she spins around lap after lap till actually she is going sometimes as fast as five miles an hour, and $100 to 50 are bet that she does the last quarter. Stauding room only gives no idea of tho crowd that was packed into the Garden, and although the price of ad mission had been raised to $1, ladies and gentlemen cheerfully paid the extra tax and patiently endured the jostling of the crowd rather than miss the opportunity of getting one glimpse of the woman who had earned for her self, the reputation of the greatest fe male pedestrian that the world has ever produced. . Looking back from the stage, there was nothing too be seen but one vast sea of heads, with a nar row lane left on the outside, in wThich the plucky woman, clad in a purple velvet walking suit, was making ra pid time. .Many of the ladies that were packed two deep against the out side walls took advantage of the inter vals to obtain a little rest by sitting on the rail. The spectators were noisy, but good natured, and would amuse themselves by applauding all the pub lie men that passed ud the track in the vain hone of obtaining a seat on the etage. Mme. Anderson was wide awake all through the evening and received a number of prominent visitors in her room every time she left the track. A number of handsome presents were made her including a handsome toilet mirror set in silver, a point lace pock et handkerchief, a silver pocket hand kerchief box and over a dozen hand some baskets of flowers. After finishing the 2,698th quarter Mme. Anderson turned up on the stage, and squeezing her way through the crowd was helped up to the reporters' stand. After waiting to obtain quiet, Mme. Anderson said: ''Keep your places and turn your heads toward me. I want to sing you a song. They tell me that the betting against my accomplishing this feat has been very rreat, but 1 should be ashamed to mistrust the people of Brooklyn, who have stood by me through my wearv task: I should be ashamed to think " J that an unkind thought to me would be harbored for one raoine it by any man, notwithstanding any amount of moaev he might have bet against me. I am now going to sing you "Nil DesDerandum." Mme. Anderson then hummed the air to the pianist, and knowing how to do things. w Anderson then fang the song in her Usual pleasant style, and the specta tors likened with rapt attention, ap plauding vociferously at the close of each vtise. After finishing her song she returned to the track and started n the lt quarter but one. Her tramp round the sev.'n laps was made in 3iu. 12 :s., accompanied, bv a con. tmuous anl almost d. afr nine Ttiir ttf applause. Then the immense crowd appeared to quiet dow n as if gathering strength for the np.:il effort fin, 1 n-h-r. i I . - mv. -V"UU bell tinkled and the Madame flew prompt to the econl. there rose one deafening yell tht was kept up almost continuously as the pluckv woman speeded rounded the track in the fast est time that she ever showed. The first lap was made in 10 seconds, with .the attendants running ahead to k cp everything char; the next showed 17 seconds by the watch, and the third was covered in 17 seconds a!o. The crowd still cheered and yelled, and the mob that thronged the "streets on the outside also caught the enthusiasm, knowing by the hour that the plucky little woman who has carried Brooklyn by storm was on her last quarter. The fourth lap was covered in 20 1-4 sec onds, and though it was plain that at last the gallant pedestrian was begin ning to succumb to the ternuc strain she had endured for twenty-eight lavs, she still struggled bravely on, walking the fifth lap in 23 seconds, the sixth in 31 seconds, and the seventh and last in 28 seconds. The place was in such an uproar that almost a minute elapsed before the time keepers could make any announcement, and when the time of the last quarter was given as 2m. 37 1-4 seconds, the fastest made during the walk, the enthusiasm of tbe spec tators was boundless. Handkerchiefs were waved, hats were thrown in the air and the people shouted themselves hoarse. In the meantime Mine. Anderson was escorted to a seat in the centre of the stage. Corporal Tanner then said : 4T say now to Mme. Anderson that she has taught the women of Brooklyn what women are capable of doing, aud they in return have shown Mme. Anderson how they can appreciate the gallant work that one of their own sex has just accomplished. Iam not surprised at the statement that she often slept on the track, as nearly all old soldiers know what they have done while sleep ing. I am happy to say that the Brooklyn people by their patronage enabled Mme.Anderaon to bank $s,U00 last Friday night, and I really think that in this case the laborer is worthy of his hire. I believe the saying may be adapted to either sex. In conclusion, I trust that Mme. Anderson's visit may have been of more than passing benefit to the ladies of Brookly and teach them to make more use of their limbs and take daily perambulations that may benefit their health." Alme. Anderson then rose to her feet and said : " I thoutrht. as an actress. I could make a speech, but this soldier has taught me a lesion. Ve women were sent into this world as helpmates to men. They are the stronger iu muscular strength, bit when it coms to a question of actual endurance, I believe that women are the stronger. The man can brave danger at the cannon's mouth, but in patience, suffering anil eudurance, the woman wilt show the boldest front. Ever since my girlhood, I have wanted to make a name As a girl of eighteen or twenty years I had a really beauti ful contra'to voice, but that did not make me a name. I then tried the stage, and although I held an honora ble and responsible position, I was not chronicled on the banners of fame. My next effort as a clown in a circus was also a success in its way ; but btill the lowg looked for reputation was not reached. I then became a man ageress, and got some reputation for losing money, ani, finally, on the 12th of September, 1S77, I commenced my present business. I took the advice of Gale, the famous long distance pe destrian, and wiien he told me, 'Go abroad, they will give you a name,' I came here, and now I will go back with the name for which I have struggled since my girlhood. I sin cerely trust that He who has given me strength to make it. will give me strength to keep it. The lesson that I have to give the women of Brooklyn is that they must learn to do their I t. : 1 : r . i . i p iiL in me. iim ueau )uu can auu that will mean a great deal, Some people blame me for walking on Sun day, but I thiuk I have oaly done my duty. I have done the work I con- tracted to do, the Fame as the ervants that cook their dinners on Sunday and the car drivers that drive them to church. I thank you all for your kind patronage and 1 hope that in a year's time I will be able to retire and lire a quiet life." The Madame then retired amid deafening applause, and was quick'y placed in a carriage and driven to Mr. Shepherd's Turkish bath, where she will remain for a few days. N EV YORK GALLERY, R4LEIGH, X.
