The Manufacturers' Record believes
that one of the greatest blcssinirs that
has ever befallen the south is the low
price of cotton during the last two years.
Contrary to the opinion of those who
think that the eouth's prosperity would
be enhanced by higher prices foremen
this feason, the Manufacturers' Record
believes that 1) or 10 cent- for cotton
would ultimately prove a disaster to the
whole south The low prices of recent
years have forced the farmers of the
wmili into divrrsifw d apiculture forced
Hum to abandon coiton its their ' nly
crop, and to rai-e their corn and food
stuffs at home. The net result, of such a
policy as this is to vastly enhance the
permanent prosperity of the south, al
though for the time being it may de
crease the amount of money expended
by southern planters. Cotton at 10 cents
for the present crop would mean great
activity in mercantile circles, and for the
next twelve months an apparent remark
able prosperity ; but 10 cent cotton would
mean that next year the farmers would
abandon their efTerts to raise corn and
give their whole attention to cotton.
Without regard to the fact that the
south must, by virtue of foreign compe
tion, abandon all expectations of ever
selling cotton for high prices again, ex
cept in occasional periods of short crops,
no greater disaster could befall the south
than to have the present tendency to di
versified agriculture changed before it
has become firmly established on the part
of all southern farmers.
At the recent annual meeting of the
Young Men's Business league of Augusta,
President Lamar mu-'e some statements
on this subject which should be studied
by every man having the welfare of the
south at heart. "At bottom," said Mr.
Lamar, "the problem which we of the
south have to solve is to live at home. It
is no less the duty of those who live in
cities than those who live in the country.
Those of us in cities cannot do it in what
we raise out of the ground, but, like the
farmer, we are to look for ultimate pros
perity in making more than we spend If
a man spends more thau he makes he
draws on capital until bankruptcy re suits.
If a city or a section spends more than
it makes, the same result follows. Cotton
at '20 cents a pound would bring less
prosperity to the people who consume
more than it sells for, in buying corn
and bacon, which are destroyed in their
use, than cotton at ! cents by people
who have no meat or c "rn to buy. If the
cotton money were used to buy articles
that added to wealth, the disaster would
not be so suddon and so inevitable; but
ar the end of twelve months we have nor
a pound of bacon or a grain of corn or a
ton of hay to show for all th cotto-i we
have sold. This i repetition." siM Mr.
Lamar, "but it important enough n
bear iteration and r iteration until we
ae alarnn d into the necessity of a change.
Augusta sell- over l,0't.J,oOi) worth of
bacon a year; it handle between ooo,.
0 HI and rf;.(Ki.0v.M war'h of c tton every
yeir. Oae-lifih of the money paid for
cotton goes out for ba.;op a!. oh-. If we
could S'ive our meat bill one year monev
would be plentiful; but if we sd 1 to
bacon the money spent for corn, for
flour, for hav.for oats, for a thousand
things produced elsewiioie. the matvei is
that we are able to stand the drain ui all.
Any country that can stand such a drain
must have marvelous resources We
have stood it without fully rea'i.i:i how
much it has sapped our prosperity, but if
we keep the millions here that are now
paid for these outside products it would
only be a period of two or three years
before we should have prosperity beyond
anything that we have ever known. Our
meat bill for one year would double the
actual cash in this cit.v. Oae year's sav
ing of our foreign-bought corn, hay, oats
and meat would make money a drug in
The facts so forcibly stated by Mr.
Lamar haye often been commented upou
by the Manufacturers' Record. They
cannot be too often pressed upon the at
tention of every man concerned as to the
south's progress and prosperity. Fortu
nately the south has this year been Lk-sted
with an abundant corn crop. Its corn
will exceed ia value its cotton crop, and
it will do more to increase the solid
growth of the south than even cotton
at 20 cents a pound would do The south
and its agricultural interests are on solid
ground. Bright, indeed, will be the future
if its farmers can only be induced to con
tinue the policy of the last two years of
raising their own food supplies. High
priced cotton would almost inevitably
bring about a change, and so the Manu
facturers' Record believes that its cotton
is not commanding high prices.
In the earliest times of purchase a wo
man was bartered for useful goods or fer
services rendered to her father. In the
latter way Jacob purchased Rachel and
her sis;er Leah. This was a Beena mar
riage, where a man, as in Genesis, leaves
his father and his mother and cleayes
unto his wife and they become one llesh
or kin the woman's. The price eif a
bride in British Columbia and Vancouver
Island varies from 20 to 40 worth of
articles. In Oregon an Indian gives for
a wife horses, blankets or buffalo robes;
in California, shell money or horses; in
Afiica, cattle. A poor Damarn will sell
a daughter for one cow ; a richer Kallir
expects from three? to thirty. With the
Banyai, if nothing be given, her family
claim her children. In Uganda, where
no marriage recently exis'ed, she may be
obtained for half a dozen needles, or a
coat, or a pair of shoes. An oidinary
price is a box of pen ussion cups. In
other parts, a goat or a couple of buck
skins will buy a girl. Passing to Asia,
we find her price is sometimes live to
fifty roubles, or at others, a cartload of
wood or hay. A princess may be pur
chased-fcor three thousand roubles In
Tartary, a woman can be obtaine d fe r a
few pDunds of butter, or where a rich
man gives twenty small oxen a poor man
may succeed with a pig. In Fiji, her
equivalent is a whale's tooth or a musket.
These, and similar prices elsewhere, are
eloquent testimony to the little yalue a
savage sets on his wife.
An astonishingly brilliant, savage, san
guiuary romance of robbery on the high
seas, which leads at once to a series of
adventures rushing like a whirlwind un
til the final pages, bears the title "The
Sea Wolves," and it is published this
week in Harper's Franklin Square Li
brary. The author is May Pemberton.
It would be difficult to recall so vivid a
tale, strictly the brine and bloodshed va
riety, since "Treasure Island " The
scene is the sea between Sheerness and
Ferrol (Spain). There can be only com
meudation of the style, for that is simple
and direct ; but the question is whether
the tale be not too vehement whether a
romantic story of adventure can have the
merit of enthralling interest even in ex
cess. It is certainly no common instance
of bold story telling.

From Thk Gu)BK Correspondent
W.siuN(;TON,Sept.20. The chief topic
of conversation here is the rcci.p'.ure in
New York of Captaia Howgate the em
bezzling executive officer of the signal
corps after thirteen years of successful
hiding. It was always said here that it
would hav e been no difficult matter to
find him but there was little desire to do
so on account of unpleasant develop
meats concerning prominent persons that
might result. Druannond the republ caii
ex chief of the secret service, who finally
effected the capture lias been professedly
working on the case for vears. Last
year he was asked to resign in favor of a
democrat but legg-'d to be retained on
account of his probable early success in
finding the defaulter. It seemed, how
ever, that he was goin to use this argu
meat for retention indefinitely anj he
was displaced last February. When his
successor took charge he found that all
the Howgate papers wtr; missing and
Mr Drummond will be called on to ex
plain why he did not leave these papers
on file. Howgate will probibly be

and the red man is driven from the

roamed, but no vest is-. of the powerful
Pottawatomies remain. The lake and
the river on which my canoe was wont
to glide knows not the dip of the red
skin's paddle. Where once I moored
my canoe to the shore now the great
steamer is at anchor anel the dip of my
paelelle is heard no more forever.
Here the Kickapoos caught the
great fish which weighed nigh to the
half hundred and now the pale face
gathers in the half pound infant of the
deep and calls it game. Alas, (), my
Master, I sigh for those golden days
but they are no more.

no more with his bounding footsteps.
Upon the brink of the flowing river

The majesty of nature is dwarfed and

nature's ruin.

Indians Tracking.
It was a most strange anel interesting
experience to see the Indian read all
the si-ns of the different animals in
the grass or among the woods with the
same eae as we read an open book.
Tin least disarrangement in tiie grass
or sticks, however small, was enough.
Hancing casually at it in passing, he
would say: "Hear, a week old.' "Yes
terday." "Deer, this mornin"-."' "Verv
eld." "Caribou, last month," and so
on. It was wonderful to behold this
instinct in a man. I had for a long
time leen following this trail of the
moe. which I thought was a fresh
trail, when I got sick of it. and began
to crs examine Mr. I.ig Partridge as
to how far off our quarry was likely to
le. Mig Partridge then showed that
he was sick of the imaginary mooe
hunt himself, and owned up. "Old
trail, all moose nipoh" that is, dead.
He had only been leading me about in
this way to amuse me. knowing it use
less the whole time! He exacted two
dollars and a half for that day's sport.
