COTTON MILLS IN THE SOUTH.
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. At

MAGIC COTTON SEED.
AN IMPORTANT INDUSTRY IN THE
SOUTH.
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.

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.

REDE3M THE PLEDGES.
The Democrats Must be True to the
People or Suffer the Consequences.
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.

FARMERS' INTEREST, guaranteeing to every man rich and poor, old and m us.
tomer alike the Best Attention, HIGEST PRICES and Fair Treatment.
"EQUAL HKiHTS TO ALL SPECIAL PRIVILEGES TO IsOM:,"
Is the platform we stand on this Campaign for the
well established fact that for the past 19 years COOPER
TOBACCO THAN ANY OTHER HOUSE IN THE STATE. There has been a cans,.
for this. It is Hard Work, Prompt Service, Honest Dealing and Satisfactory
Prices. The. moral is plain: Always sell your tobacco where it will pay you best. ! not
allow persons who are interested in other markets or houses to mislead you by their "uV-
crast promises," but go to that house and market where your tobacco will
bring you the MOST NET MONEY. The testimony of thousands of patrons is in
favor of COOPER'S as the place.
by an advantageous change in schedules, Farmers along- the Wilmington -don
Railroad, can now leave home early in the morning, come to Henderson, sell tlu ir
Tobacco upon the Livest Market in North Carolina or Virginia, and n im-n
home the same day. Personal attention given to the sale of every pile of your Tbaivo.
Quick sales and prompt returns made on day of sale. Highest Prices guaranteed al all
times. Hogsheads furnished. Tobacco nicely graded.
Thanking my many friends for their very liberal patronage in the past and promising to
spare no efforts to serve them acceptably and to protect and promote their interests in
future, soliciting a continuation of tvve same,
I AM, VERY TRULY,

Carroll, la., July, 1833.
I was suffering 10 years from shocka in tuy
bead, bo much so that at times I didn't expect
to recover. I took medicines from many doc
tors, but did not get any relief until I took I'abtor
Koenig's Nerve Tonic; the second doso relieved
me and 2 bottles cured me. S. W. PECK.

For many years I was sickly and very nerv
ous, so that the least thins would frighten me,
and my sloop was nnrefreshing and I was so
weak as to be unable to do any housework. 1
was always ill-humorod and depressed. Now
everything is changed. Pastor Koonig's Noire
