When the Constitution predicted some years ago that the south would become the site and center of cotton manufacturing, we found it difficult to explain, in the discussion that followed, that such changes, affecting the social and business conditions of a continent, do not take place in a day nor even in a generation. T hey belong to move ments that are altogether impercepti ble to ordinary observers, and can only be measured and compared at the close of eras of development. T he prediction of the Constitution was made more than ten years ago, and was a part of its comment on the great cotton exposition held in At linta. Those who might desire to : pend an idle moment laughing at the futility of ncvv.-j.aj.tr prophecy have had ample oppoitmiity since that time to enjoy themselves, and the oppor tunity is still ripe, for cotton manufac turing in the south is still feeling ifs way feebly when compared with the development of the industry in sections more favored by capital and experi ence. In the face of these things, we ven ture to reiterate the prediction. We are nearer to its fulfillment by fifteen years, a lapse of time that is not a quarter of an hour in the history of a nation's development. It is inevit able that the cotton grown in the south should be manufactured within sight and hearing of the cotton planta tions. The circumstances that demand it are as inexorable in their action as the laws of nature. They work slowly, but none the less surely. T heis generation nor the next may not see the fulfillment, but that is no reason why they should not work to further the movement. They may contribute to it very materially. It is going on all the time. It is to be seen wherever a new mill is set uj, wher ever a new spindle is added. It is a movement that will have backsets. It will be accompanied bv failures, and those who have expectation in their eyes will lose hope. I hit the move r.ient will go on until the entire crop of southern cotton, no matter how large it may grow to be, will be smin and wove in the region where it is grown. Relating to this subject, we print in another place a communication from Mr. I). A. Tompkins, of Charlotte, N. C, who discusses the question whether the addition of new mills in the south will overdo the manufacturing business in this section. It may strike the northern reader that .this is a singular question to discuss at this time when there are so few cotton mills in the south, and when Fall River is adding to its already large mill interests. But it is, in fact, a very important ques tion. Capital and enterprise in the south have not grown venturesome enough as yet to take hold of the fine goods problem, not being willing to enter in what is practically an untried cxieriment here. And yet the move ment is in that direction. The very fact that competition in the manufacture of coarse goods in the south has cut and is cutting profits down, has given some of the older plants a reasonable excuse for entering on experiments in the manufacture of line goods. I he very facts that cause millmen to look gloomily to the future are those which hold out the greatest promise. It is for this reason that more and more competition in coarser goods is to be welcomed by those who take a large view of the situation. Temporary embarrassments and back sets may grow out of it, but the ten dency of human endeavor is to rid it self of its embarrassments and to over come obstacles. Thus it will happen in the growth of cotton manufacturing in the south that the condition which seems at present an insuperable obstacle is really a spur to larger experiments and to more important results.

The Uses to Which the Cotton Plant and Its Products Are Put Are Many and "Wonderful Rub ber from Cotton Seed. Oil. .Savannah News.l The cotton seed industry has sprung, in the lait few years, from compara tively nothing to an enterprise con trolled by great corporations and in which millions of dollars are invested. The average cotton yield per acre last year was .44 bales, or one bale to about 2.25 acres. This means about 1,500 pounds of seed cotton, of which 1,000 pounds are seed. In 1,000 pounds of seed there are about 33 bushels, calculating 30 pounds to the bushel, which at the average price of seed nets 20 cents, or 56. 60 to 2 acres, which added to the receipts for a bale of cotton, brings the profit up considerably. i:k; money in seed. A prominent cotton firm in this city collected during the past season 511,506.18 for two of its customers Georgia farmers, near Savannah for seed sold to oil mills. This amount represents over 525 tons of cotton seed, and is merely one instance out of numerous others like it. The in dustry of raising the seed is growing rapidly and about four-fifths of the seed produced last year was marketed, where very little of it was sold two years ago. The yield from the seed counterbalances to a great extent the depression to the farmer as a result of low prices obtained from the lint cotton, and instead of being dumped back on the field for fertilizers it is now almost all sold to the mills, and commercial fertilizers are used to en rich the lands. WII.I. INCREASE THE I'RICE. There is a prospect, too, that cotton seed will bring far better prices as the products derived from them are in creased. There has been discovered a means of making India rubber from the oil of the seed, and experiments are now being conducted in the vicinity of this city with a view of making the process cheap enough to be profitable. In . fact, a good deal of the product has been successfully put on the market. The India rubber is said to be the genuine article, and is pronounced as good as that which comes from the juice of the oriental rubber tree. The seed which will produce an oil which is one of the most excellent and wholesome foods yet discovered, meal which is a perfect stock food, a hull which can hardly be excelled as a fertilizer, and besides all these an oil which promises to yield rubber shoes, coats, hose and the various other articles made from the Indian gum, promises one day to yield an industry which will rival in impor tance the cotton industry itself. NO LIMIT TO IT. No certain limit can be set to its development, and there is no predict ing what other products may be ex tracted from it. There are few peo ple who are aware that the source of most of their fruit flavoring extract is the black and sluggish coal tar, yet such is the case, and chemists are now working to draw quinine from the same source. There is a possibility that some day the cotton seed industry may be the prime yield of the cotton plant. The report that the large sale of the commercial fertilizers this year means an increased cotton acreage, and con sequently a reduced price, is a good argument on its face, but the fact is that most of the seed formerly used as a fertilizer on the cotton fields have been marketed during the past season, and there was nothing to do but supply their place with the commercial article. SELL SEED AND liUY FERTILIZERS. The profit in the seed has been so great, even at the price they now bring, that the farmers make a great deal by selling them and using com mercial fertilizers, which answer al most as well. Thus the cotton in dustry has called forth an increase in the fertilize business, and in that way has indirectly built up another in dustry. The latest development in the cotton seed industry is perhaps the cultivation of the lintless cotton plant in Texas, from which there is a much larger yield of seed but no lint what ever. The Morning JVetos has just received a sample oi these seed from Mr. C. Menelas, formerly of Savannah, but now of Galveston. THE LINTLESS COTTON PLANT. The plant which produces the seed is similar to the ordinary cotton plant, but can stand a greater degree of drought. The seed, which grow in pods or balls, are smaller than the seed of the ordinary cotton plant, and have not quite so large a kernel, but the large increase in the yield com pensate for the small size. The plant, it is claimed, produces from 200 to 400 bushels of seed alone to the acre. At that rate the culture of the lintless cotton would pav far better than the ordinary cotton crop. During the coming season the pros pects arc favorable for a somewhat in creased cotton acreage over last year, but the total yield will hardly be as large as it was in 1891. The price of seed has advanced with the in creased demand for them, and the probability is that almost the entire crop will be marketed during the com ing season. A SECRET I'ROCESS. A writer in the Manufacturers' Record tells the following plausible but not entirely credible story. He says of Savannah : " This city possesses a most unique manufacturing establishment, the onlv one of the kind in the world, where cotton seed oil is manufactured bv a secret process into rubber not a sub stitute, but bona fide rubber; such, at least, some of the best experts have pronounced the product of the factory to be. Nobody knows anvthinsr about wriaTtis going on inside the factory with theception of a few very igno rant negroes-. Nobody is admitted. THE HENDERSON GOLD LEAF The bare facts alone are known that crude cotton seed oil, from the oil mill, costine about cents a gallon, or about xx per ton, is carted in in five ton lots, and then tons of rubber worth about one dollar per pound, or 52,000 per ton, are carted out and shipped to a very prominent rubber dealer and manufacturer of Boston." The writer, Mr. C. B. Warrand, also says "the discovery was made by ac cident by an artist of some promi nence, who was experimenting with cotton seed oil in the preparation of varnish for oil paintings, and made rubber instead. The discoverer claims that the process is so simple that he A - could not obtain a patent for it, and his only protection is in secrecy. " The rubber tree forests are tnin- ning out, while the rapidly increasing uses of electricity, in which rubber is so important as an insulator, makes a growing demand tor cheap ruurjer, and the invention of a cheap and quick process for producing it from cotton seed oil means a fortune for the in ventor and an important new industry for the South. About Cotton Picking Machines. In the New York World of last Sunday there was a broadside advertisement of the formation of a stock company to float a new cotton-picking machine. They seem to Mi to sell stock, and, probably later on, the stockholders. What has become of the Smith cotton picker! There was one in vented by Mr. Orrin Smith, of Wake county, I believe, and proved a practical success. Persons who saw the trial in the field report that it worked well, but we have not heard of it in years. What has become of the invention? H. Editor State Uiihontcle : Dear Sir: In your issue of February 8th there appeared an inquiry about the Orrin Smith Cotton Picker on exhibition and trial in the middle part of this State soino years ago, to which I beg to reply. The machine" proved a practicable suc cess and did more and better work than all tliecombiiml efforts at cotton picking machinery to date, and I have it yet in tact with all the experience and improve ments of myself and others in that line But I did not have money enough to put it on the market in proper form, and wa-s opposed by prominent citizens and the agricultural department as detrimental to the production of cotton in this State, when? the gauge of the crop was the amount that could be picked out. ror said they: "Arkansas and some of the other States can produce five times as much cotton as we can here in .North Carolina. But we can pick out by hand as much here is they can, and with that machine of yours we could not compete with them and it would drive the cum vat ion of cotton out of the State." With this sentiment and outspoken apprecia tion against me, and unable to go further, I had to put it to sleep until such tunes as 1 could bring it out, and our citizens should wake up from their Rip tan Winkle slumber to find an hundred at tempts all over the land striving for the mastery of the very thing I had so well demonstrated and if 1 did not carry it forward somebody else would and all tht profits thereof. For it is an inex orable demand and must come. It is a simple question of machinery of America versus the pauper labor of the world. I am now at work upon an improved machine with advanced devices that covers all the ground, that answers the purposes and rills the requirements of a cotton picker. I am the first man that ever delivered a bale of cotton upon the market that was never touched with human fingers, and I can enable every cotton planter of the South to do the same thing for a nominal cost. But 1 have to go slow, as I am not dealing in ' salted stock speculations, but in machines that the planter can own and work at pleasure, costing about half as much as the estimated cost of these con cerns of Colonel Sellers', with millions in it, all on a piece of paper. Here is a machine costing about $200 each, gathering all the cotton that is well opened and ready for picking that you can drive over in a day at plow-horse gait, without destruction to the growing staple, and you can go over the field once, twice or three times, at different seasons, as the lint matures. In January last I examined two model machines in New York city, "so called'' cotton pickers with a capital of five mil lions of dollars to manufacture and " rent" the machines. They would sell nothing but certificates of stock iu the company. But the machine proved on examination to be a "thresher," knocking the whole plant into one mass of green and open cotton, stalks, bolls, leaves, grass and weeds all together. I told them they might make bricks with that machine, but it would never pick cotton. This was the Blum machine of which so much has been said through the press of its efficiency and success, and for which the company paid for an advertisement in the New York papers (one insertion) two thousand dollars. Then there was the Lispenard machine, with ten millions capital, and a rive thousand dollar advertisement iu the New York Sunday World, which was noth ing but a little wheel barrow concern that was no more adapted to picking cotton than it was to catching fish. I make the statement of these facts to show the importance of a cotton har vester that our citizens in North Carolina have so strenuously opposed. I had my experimental machine in Raleigh and drove up to the Yarboro house and made proclamation that all who wanted to see the machine pick cotton come with me to a lot near the national cemetery and see it work, and not one single soul would go. I will refer you to Dr. G. W. Blacknall who was keeping the hotel at the time for confirmation of this deplorable fact. But it is not many years hence when the cotton will be gatherered b.v machinery for about one dollar a bale, whether it is made here in North Carolina or not. Henderson, N. C. O. K. Smith, Means Much for North Carolina. rXewton Enterprise. J The decision of the committee of Waldenses which visited Morganton some time ago to inspect the lands with a view of settling a colony of these industrious and intelligent people, to buy 20,000 acres and take posses sion at once, is a very important event for North Carolina. They will intro duce their system of farming and test the adaptability of our soil to profita ble farming in a line that has never been tried. They are expert grape growers and wine-makers and will devote themselves to this industry in Burke. Their tract of land begins four miles on this side of Morganton and lies on both sides of the Western railroad. If their first colony succeed in their business and like the country, others will follow. They are an in tensely religious people living in the Swiss mountains and speaking the French language. They are the most desirable foreigners that this country could secure. The development of the idle lands and the introduction of their new industry and ideas of farming will prove very valuable to this country. Delavs are dangerous.

LDanville Kegister.l irierenas been ana there still is great discontent among the laboring people and the farming people, and this discontent created- the third or populist party. Their cry under the leadership of broken down political hacks and visionary demagogues of the Weaver and tield stripe was : We cannot trust either of the old parties, both being corrupt, and under the domination of Wall street and the money sharks and the gold bugs. The Democratic party in national convention assembled made a plat form which contains pledges to meet every demand of the tax burdened people, and Grover Cleveland, and every speaker who canvassed for his election, said to the dissatisfied people : " All the ills from which you suffer are the results of the corrupt legislation of the Republican party. Give us entire control of the government, give us the senate, the house and the executive department and we will 'undo the cor rupt legislation of the Republicans and all your demands shall be met on the terms laid down in the Chicago plat form." The people by their votes said : " Very well, your platform is all right, we will give you a chance," and Grover Cleveland went into office and the house and the senate became safely Democratic. But the demagogue who would ride into power on the discontent of the people is not dead. He is alive, wait ing anxiously for his opportunity and now if the Democratic party fails to redeem the pledges made to the people, it will be an easy matter for apparently earnest men, having oily tongues, to go among the people in many States, especially Virginia, and rally a tre mendous following, by simply raising the old cry that neither of the old parties are for the people, and that the trend of federal legislation under Democratic rule, as it was under Re publican rule, is toward the reduction of the farmers and workingmen to a state of peonage and so on. The populist demagogue is smart enough to take advantage of an op portunity if presented to him, and the only way to down him is to redeem the pledges made in the Chicago plat form. The speedy action of the new administration in redeeming these pledges will leave the third party people without a grievance and the demagogue's occupation will begin. An early extra session of congress to abolish protection, to re establish State banks, to re-monetize silver, to uproot and undo all the infamous republican class legislation, and to amend the pension laws so as to make them just to the deserving soldier and not a bummer's steal will answer all the de mands of the discontented people and there will be no more talk of a third party. These are the big things the people expect of Mr. Cleveland's ad ministration. But let the Democratic party dilly dally and the demagogue will get in his work, there will be an uprising of the people and it will require an inspired prophet to guess what will be the deplorable end thereof.

Weston. Because of the lack of space only a little portion of tlie lecture can be re produced bv the Observer. Marshal Ney four days after Waterloo expressed an intention of going to the United States. Peter Stuart Ney told Mrs. Mary C. Dalton, who is still living in Iredell that he whispereu 10 ins diers"aim high," as he passed them going to his place at the execution, lie left Bordeaux for Charleston and landed there in January, 1810. Three years he was in hiding and preparing himself to teach. Every characteristic of "Peter S. Key wereshown by Mr. Weston to have been possessed by' Marshal Ney. Ney was called bv his soldiers "Peter, the Red. Perhaps this was the reason he assumed the name of Peter in this country. His father's name was Peter. His mother was descended from a family of Stuarts. The iron frame of the greatest of Napoleon's marshals could defy wind and weather. Peter S. Ney commonly made out with four hours sleep. He never sat near a fire. He was too fond of his cups but no drunkard. He commonly drank more after hearing bad news from France. Peter S. Ney wrote very good poetry. There is 110 record that Marshal Key ever did, but that doesn't prove he couldn't. The Marshal played the flute. Peter S. Ney owned and played a costly flute. Peter S. Ney is known to have had every wound on his person that the great Marshal had, except one on the neck. His acquaintances cannot Je member as to that. He had a severe sabre wound on the left side of his head, which he said he received at Waterloo. Marshal Ney was the best fencer in France; Peter S. Ney the best in America. The latter told Burgess (iaither, of Davie county, that he and Murat used to fence with each other in Napoleon's presence. Marshal Kev could speak English. An expert told Mr. Weston that two speci mens of the handwriting of both the Marshal and Peter S. Ney were undoubt edly the same. Both Keys were marked with the small pox. Peter Stuart Ney fainted in the school room at Darlington, S. C, when thenews of Napoleon's death reached him. He told Col.Benj.Itogcrsafterwards: "With the death of Napoleon my last hope is gone." He was recognized several times by foreigners as Marshal Ney. On one of these occasions at Statesvilk a (Jerman named Barr created a sensation by say ing, "There's Marshal Ney." On his death-bed Peter S. Ney solemnly affirmed, in the presence of Dr. Matthew Lock and others, that he was the French Marshal. He died in 181G, and was buried at Third Creek. Charlotte Observer.

The brusque and fussy impulse of these days of false impression would rate down all as worthless because one is unworthy. As if there were 110 motes in sunbeams ! Or comets among stars !
