The Condition of Package as Impor

(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.

lne epoch 01 every geneiw
tion, in every period, is its pre
sent age. 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

So many agricultural pa
pern are published and articles
written by men, who have little

farmers, that information and
suggestions through such medi
ums have fallen into disrepute,

This can be done in several
ways, first by the use of

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
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
