There was philosophy and bit ing truth in th ; Messenger's remark. The advei Using col umns of a newspaper a:e the true and accepted index of the pluck, push and enterprise of the people of the town where the paper is published. Un less the business of a city is mir:ored in its advertising col umns, tho glowing words in the local or editorial columns about ; he "great boom" the town is on will be accepted by the gen eral public, ny the people at home as well as by the peoplb away, as the whistling of a scar ed boy passing a graveyaid. How eloquently the advertise ments in today's Chronicle speak of tho business and the enterprise of Charlotte! Would a column editorial in the most exuberantly boastful language tell near so well of the business enterprise of Charlotte, as do the advertising columns of to day's Chronicle ? liy no means; because without the advertise ments, the boasts would be fool ish, and with them, they would be idle, for the advertisements alone tell the story.

The Chronicle is showing en terprise and industry in behalf of the interest of Charlotte, and tho business men have shown their appreciation by doubling their advertising spaces and those who have not before ad vertised aie falling into rank. Tiik Caucasian lias no cause to grumble of the support given and appreciation shown by the majority of the business men here for its efforts, but there are a few who as yet have done lit tle or nothing in this direction. We are glad to see othei places prosper, but that Clinton and this section should prosper is of vital importance to us. Tiik Caucasian is doing all that it can to accomplish this end.

Mr. Lewis in response stated that he learn ed in Wilmington that they had just secured an act of the Gen eral Assembly authorizing the cuy to remit certain taxes on new manufacturing establish ments for ten years. This, he said would be an inducement to any manufacturing company contemplating a move to inves tigate Wilmington as a favora ble location. lie cited instances where towns had accumulated funds by weekly contributions from all the inhabitants for the purpose of either taking stock in a factory, to buy a site, or to give as a bonus. After some discusfion as to whether a con tribution of that sort should be raised for the purpose of pur chasing a site for a furniture factory of any kind, it was de cided not to confine the contribu tion any particular factory, and for this purpose Mayor Meadows announced that he would head the list with fifty dollars." A number of others volunta rily subscribed to a fund for such a purpose or offered to give sites for the proposed factories. "Now," said Mr. Lewis, "you have done a great deal in five minutes, and if you xvant to make things hustle raise a thou sand dollars to give as a bonus to the firsi one who will accept one of those sites and build a factory." If Clinton would only raise this amount, we could have the much needed canning factory of out own without giving it away to get some one else to start it. POINTS FOR TRUCKERS. THE MEN WHO HANDLE OUR TRUCK, AND WHAT THEY SAY A ROUT OUR SHIPMENTS. The Condition of Package as Impor tant as Quality of Goods. (Editorial Correspondence.) New Yotik, Feb., 1889. Ab our readors are in a great truck growing section, we have found time to visit the men who handle the lanrer portion of North Carolina shipments and gather what information rela- ive to the business we could for Tiik Caucasian. When truck is shipped it Is consigned to a receiver. - The middle man, or dealer in pro duce, comes on tho 'dock in the morning and buys from the re ceiver the diiierant kinds 01 fruits and vegetables, which he, the dealer, thinks he will find most saleable for the day. This dealer hasua stall in the market, lie takes his purchasesto his stall and there displays them. During the day the grocer comes to the market and buys from tho dealer what he (the grocer) thinks he will find a market for in his store for the day. Now, with this class of men, time is important. So when the grocer goes to the market be purchases from the dealer who keeps the largest and best assortment, otherwise he would have to vis several stalls to select his stock for the day. In the same way when the dealer goes out iu the morning to buy his supplies for the day, he looks for the re ceiver who handles the largest assortment and quantity of pro duce, so that he may readily make his entire purchase from one man, and it is not until the shipments to the large recei vox fl are exhausted that the small re ceiver has a chance to sell his shipments. Therefore produce in the hands of the large receiv er, though probably inferior in quality, almost invariably sells sooner and for a better price than produce, though probably of good quality, in the hands-of a small receiver. All this has been said to show you that tho all important thiDg to secure prompt and satisfacto ry returns is to select the proper receiver to whom to ship. It will not do to ship to every man who seuds you a stencil, as some of our Sampson truckers have learned m their near and un pleasant experience with one Acker man. By the way, ye have just been around to see the shanty in which he held forth Few people here know anything of him, and those whodid,know nothing to his credit. Now there are a number of just such par ties here as Akerman, who are constantly sending out stencils, offering big returns for ship ments, hut wo hope our people tvill not again be caught in any such trap. Every trucker should ascertain whether or not the parties t whom he intends shipping has character and com mercial standing, and our truck ers should, in addition, have ma eye to those who handle large quantities of Nortj Carolina truck, because the dealers hav9 learned to go to such receivers for the kind of truck we sliip. We will mention a half a dozen of probably the best of such re ceivers, namely : Hines & Mans field, Vogel & Brautigan, S. H. & E. H. Frost, J. H. Bahvenburg (fcBros. W. J. & S. II. Daven port, G. S. Palmer, and G. Fur man & Co. We would advise our North Carolina truckers to to ship to one of these .hoases. There is no such thing as overstocking the market of this place. A small receiver may easily be overstocked, because he has only a limited number of suiaU dealers to buy from him. But the firms we have mentioned can always dispose of your shipments to them, if it is in a marketable condition, for they have the largest deal ew for their regular customers.

It is the "golden mean" that links the extremes of time, the summit from which we survey the past and the only foundation ou which we have a right to base the fabric of our future dreams. The reptner who is sighing for some happy age, that is no more, is as far be hind the present age, as is the age for which he sighs, and so far as we can see, would be better in his shroud than in ex istence. He who whiles away the passing moments, to await the "good time coming" must at last awake to the gloomy reality that 'all was a dream." While he who would seek the philosophy of life iu those who have swept the arena before him and apply it to the age in which he lives, is guided on his way by "the lights that never grow dim." Thus we make the broad as sertion. We are standing face to face with an age that is doub ly important, for it will go into history as our age of activity of material and scientific devel opment. Then it is ov.r n.ne But where? inquire the malcontent, and the man of thought alike. Yet with different minds and notions, wheie are the evidences of our prosperity? Let Agri culture and Manufacturing and Science and Metaphysics, and Statesmanship and Monuments from which plays the electric spark of the spirit of the age, proclaim the truth. August 31st, J.886, in Paris, was celebrated the one hun dredth birth day of a chemist, who has witnessed "the entire development" of one of the greatest sciences known to men. Startling is the answer to the question. What has a quarter of a century done for this sci ence ? Yea, a revolution is pending thereon to-day. Chas Darwin the great apostle of the development theory, which, is mov ing and stirring the world of thought, has been dead but ten years, his prominent successors are men of the age, and wonder ; mat long last prodigy, tne "con necting link" between man and and the monkey has left his tracks where the acute observa tion of one of these scientists has made the discovery. Let that noble race who pride themselves on their liistoric eenealogy, rather than their common sense, erect to the hero of discovery a fitting monument, and place upon its top-most pin nacle a monkey of the first edi tion, for their long sought link in a now perfect genealogy. But whatever may be said of the theory of evolution, in its ranks are men of thought and activi ty; and those who would recon cile it to the interests of Chris tianity or overthrow it in de fence thereof, must be men of thought. "Truth is mighty and will prevail," but the instru ment that measures it must be a fitting one. Naught but the mental and spiritual activity of the men of truth could avert a repitition of the "Dark Ages." But the forces are gathering. The lands that are a stranger to all enlightened men, save the explorers, together with the cities that have been buried for centuries, are confirming the story of authentic history. In the interest of benighted hu manity, the heralds of Christian ity are increasing their ranks in Mexico, in Asia, in Africa, in the isles of the sea, even through out the world. This is an age of great political problems. The spirit of Anarchy that is troubling the waters to-day, is but a rea etion of a gigantic op pression, it nad not its birtn in America, but America feels it. "Nc man liveth to himself," is a vital truth in Political Economy. We. think it not presumptive to assert that he who amicably adjusts the situa tion m tne political world, is greater than Alexander or Caesar. Not only in the political arena is the combat carried on, but in all the pursuits of men, each striving with unrelenting power to fill his own coffers, regardless of the downfall of his neighbor "just across the street." When in reality the . success of one is the success of the other. Men, nor the pursuits of men can no more live to themselves than continents, islands and seas. One of the greatest geograph ical truths, written and read upon all lands "and seas, is that no part of the globe is sufficient unto itself, that no tree or rock, continent or sea was ever finish ed, that everything has a full ness that something else naeds, and wants that soine-ning else can supply; Without Asia and I Europe,America would be a poor home; without Greenland, Cuba would lose splendor in the cor Continued on the Fourth Page. OUR FARMERS' COLUMN. SOMETHING INTERESTING TO THOSE WHO TILL THE SOIL. So many agricultural pa pern are published and articles written by men, who have little or no practical experience as farmers, that information and suggestions through such medi ums have fallen into disrepute, and does but little good. In view of this fact, we wish to get the views and tested , plans of practical farmers fortbis column each week. So farmers, send in an account of your success in any branch of Agriculture, for the benefit of thefraternity.-&a FERTILIZERS CONTINUED. We told you in last week's issue that wy would this week give some points on how to supple ment the barn yard manure. This can be done in several ways, first by the use of Lime If you take a plant and bum it and analyze tne as ties you will find that it is composed of nine substances, one of which is lime. So when lime is not ore sent in the soil in sufficient abundance to meet the demands , tt aa- - ed. Lime can he of special val ue in two ways, which should be thoroughly understood by every farmer. It is the best thing known to take the "sour- nesa" out of land Have you any land that is water sobbed aud sour? Then broadcast a little lime on tho surface of it in the Spring and you can make a good corn crop on it the same year. There is only one other way to make such land produce. and that is by ditching aud let ting it stand for a year or two The lime does immediately what time would have to accom plish. Another use is in decom posing vegetable matter and gutting it in a condition to be used by the plants. You all know that if you wrap lime in a cloth that it will soon eat up the cioth. Tanners use lime o eat the hair off of hides. Just in the same way lime eats up thorough vegetable matter in mannre, or in the soil, and pre- i 1 . pares it for plant food. But be careful not to put lime on light sanay lana, wnicn is horouKhlydrj and contains lit- le or no vegetable matter, for in such a case it will supply no want, but inflict an injury. Like tha hst of medicines, it s dan- gerous wnen improperly usea. M or wood ashes in a compost heap nnless the manure is very rough, and thfln tlier should be 1 avers of ditch bank or swamp muck ut along in the heap to catch and hold the gasses formed by he action of the lime, other wise these gasses, wnicn are very valuable, would escape in T . . ,. , , poorer, msuor, ume uuwuw ashes are fine manures, but must be, used carefully. AnrttTiM- snlflndid fertilizer is Salt. The important office of salt is to make soluble the manure put out and substances already in the foil, for all manure must . . . . be in a liquid formbef ore it can do the plant any good: in this way salt is valuable to keep the soil moist in case of dry weath- er. Rut salt. too. must be used ,,! wm ua.rci.unj. am you uiuuu u injures tne vegetation; u win not do to put it out loose, for in this shape it is too strong , rm t onaii n tr r.if M. n uf oai, t Ja ...

Another cheap and important fertilizer is Green Xuue, Etc So far we have pointed out how to improve all kind3 of soil bat the upland, light sandy soil, of which we hav an abun dance ii this county. On such land put all tho vegetable mat ter and swamp muck (which is vegetable matter partly decay ed) you can; or rotate crops, turning under a pa crop and then planting wheat, turning uuder the stubbles, and then peas again, etc. Tho idea is not only to increase its fertility but to get enough vegetable matter in it so that it will hold mois- ture Now, in conclusion, allow me J to urge upon you to think of all these things and see if you can't, by using your own brains, time, and valuable fertilizer mate rials, (which waste around you) be'able to save this enormous expense of buying chemical fer tilizers. 'Farmers have marvel ed to see the large results from application of a few hundred hundred pouuds per acre of these fertilizers, and in some quarters these results have led to an un dervaluation of the homo-made manures. The fact that the concentrated fertilizer, being de- PosHed generaUy with the seed, is more linineuLaieiy aviiiiuuie, does not demonstrate its supe riority except for the single crop to which it is applied. The farmer who owns the land he tills as most tf our 'annewda is interested not only in lmme- diate profits, but in maintaining, if not increasing, the fertility of his soil. Guano acts simply as a stimu- lant, and if used alone will soon stimulate land to death. Let uaput something on our land that will give it a body and per manently improve it. THE NEW VICE PltESlDENT.
