MILK THE NEW AGRICULTURE. LACK OF METHOD IN FARMING OPERA TIONS. Prof Williams, of the University. Reports the Result of His Observa tions Along this Line The Farmer as Compared With the Mill Owner and Other Business Men. LCoi respondence News and Observer. 1 Fkankun, N. C, July ioth. For several years my vacations have been spent among the farmers. The condition of the farmer interested me and I was sure that the only way to understand him was to live with him. And now I have u few observations to report. All over the State the farmer is in a back way. He is not improving his farm. His bank . account has gone years ago. The children are not being educated. Debts are accumulating. What is the cause of this state of thing? I answer without any hesitation. The farmer himself. The method of work and manage ment of the average farmer would wreck any business in the world. I do not think there is any other bus iness in which there is so much waste as in our farming. For example, in making manure the farmer loses all the urine from his stock. Now a ton of urine is worth ten times as much as a ton of solids. This is one example. I could name fifty more in-which the waste is simply ruinous. Alongside of waste I place a lack of method. The farmer does not keep up wiih his business. He does not know what his products cost him. He does not know what products are best suited to certain conditions. And the result of that lack of method is two-fold. In the first place he has boarders among his stock and luxuries among his necessities. In the second place we have the absurd condition of the consumer setting his own price on the necessities of life, grown by the far mer. The farmer does not know the act ual cost of a bushel of corn, hence the consumer, knowing the value of it, sets the price. No other business in conducted as farming is. has been prosperity in of life except farming. our State is Hence there all the lines The factory running in a rigidly business like way, has made rich the owner. A revolu tion in teaching methods has brought an educational awakening to our peo ple all over the State; and as a result every good school is prospering. The farmer alone has been left behind, and I rpeat it, the cause is with the farmer. This letter is headed the "New Agri culture." It has taken me several years to see that there are forces at work now strong and confident that will bring in a brighter day for the farmer. I am satisfied that my title is not imaginary. Let me make good this assertion by examples. I have visited and studied three farms this summer. The first was a stock farm in Rowan. Five years ago this farm would produce five tons of ensil age to the acre, now it produces seven teen tons. The cost of this ensilage stored in the silo is eighty cents per ton. The proprietor of this farm can tell you to the cent about everything on the farm. His methods are exactly like the methods in a successful bank or factory. And this is the result : When I told him the salary of the President of the University, he laughed at me and said he could make more money raising stock. The other two farms are in the mountains and are given to a variety of crops that is, to the crop that pays. On one of these farms the taxes when the present owner bought it was fifteen dollars ; now the amount is one hundred and fifty dollars. This tells the story. 1 he other larm, bought seven years ago, produced when bought five bushels cf corn to the acre. Last year eighty-seven bushels to the acre was gathered. The proprietor told me that the farm is now paying eight per cent. and it is sure to do better. Now lor the explanation. It is in a few words : Stock, no waste, business methods. The basis of our agricul tural revival is improved stock. Every farm should have a dozen good cows ; put these in a good barn. Save all the manure, urine and solids. Make hay to feed them. Have improved hogs for the surplus milk; the hogs cost nothing, feed the family, and buy the groceries, and the manure from the stock means rich land, and rich land means heavy crops, and big crops mean profits. In brief these are the results of my observations. They are offered in the desire to bring help and suggestion to ! our farmers. H. H. Williams. The inhabitants of a certain county in Virginia are neither male nor female. They are all of the Middlesex. It is a big thing to say, but nevertheless true, that a great multitude of people have crowned Simmons Liver Regulator the " King of Liver Medicines."

Simmons Liver Regulator Is the j prevention and cure for these ailments. j Man must be disappointed with the : lesser things of life before he can comprehend the full value of the greater. Qukver. THE vanished voice. f Kicliard liurton, in Harper's Magazine for August. j There stood door a tree beside his boyhood's I'hat faced the West and often, Just before The sundown seemed transfigured with the tight That flooded in, and keen upon his sight Burned Image of flame ; and from the tree Fluted a nameless bird goldeuly lie seemed part of the sunset and the sky. The listener has listened for that ery Of love and longing many a weary time. And heard it uever ; nor can mortal rhyme Encompass half its sweetness. Could the place. The homely homestead, and the subtle grace Of youth return, the magic moment when The Westering day shows Heaven to mortal men. Though transiently, perchance the chant ing bird Would be there, too, perohanee his voioe were heard. The listener listens vainly. Song is rife Still in the world, still love illumines life, Bnt he would give the all of after years.

The way to make your town a blessing to yourself and every one else and the finest and most interesting place to live is to push it, talk it up, help improve it, beautify its streets, use its manufactured products, speak well of its entei prising men, and if you can't say something good, say nothing. If you have the means invest in something ; employ some'ixdy ; be a hustler. Be courteous to all visitors so that they may leave town with a good impression. Always be ready - to encourage and support new industries and you will be rewarded by a pros perous and go ahead town. Extend a hearty welcome and encourage all who contemplate locating among you, as it takes people to make a town. Never fail to have a good word to say for the mau who puts up the most buildings in your town or comes down with the largest amount of cash to help along a business boom or a big day, which is always a blessing to our business men. Above all don t kick about any necessary improvements because it doesn't happen to benefit you as much or more than it does anybody else. Let the good of the town be your highest consideration and you will always be liked and honored by the whole community and your name will never die, but live long after you are dead and gone. Exchange. Wanted to Furnish Music Exposition. for the Atlanta Constitution. An ambitious summer hotel orches tra at a North Carolina resort was one of the competitors of Sousa, Gilmore and Innez for the contract for furnish ing music at the Exposition. Mr. Howell Peeples, on one of his business journeys, ran across the or chestra and heard it discourse. It was composed of six pieces. It gave as good music as the young people needed for waltzing the summer nights away. The strains of the orchestra had almost died out of the memory of Mr. Peeples, when he was reminded -of them the other day by a letter from the manager. The manager wanted to furnish the exposition with music and hit upon his acquaintance with the prominent young railroad man as the best method of getting the proper start in the direction of the consum mation of his worthy ambition. He wrote to Mr. Peeples saying thai he would like to bring his orchestra of six pieces to this city and surprise and delight the exposition visitors with sweet music. Who would be the proper official to approach with a business offer? "I do not know who has charge of the music for the exposition," Mr. Peeples wrote in reply, "and therefore cannot advise you as to who is the proper official for you to negotiate with. I can state, however, that Sousa, Innez and Gilmore have been engaged for the exposition, which I very much regret, since hearing of your wish to come." He sent the letter to the manager and waited a few days for reply. It came and was short and to the point. It said: "The devil you say!" How to Learn to Talk. Learn to listen well, and soon you will find yourself speaking the word in season and surprising yourself as well as others by the quickness with which your thoughts will be expressed. Read the works of great writers, think them over, and conclude in what way you differ from them. The woman who talks well must needs have opinions decided ones but she must have them well in hand, as nothing is so dissagreable as an ag gressive talker. Say what you have to say pleasantly and sweetly; remember always that the best thing in life dear, sweet love has often been won by that delightful thing, "a low voice." Be not too critical; remember that every blow given another woman is a boomerang which is bound to return and hit you with double force. lake this into consideration: it is never worth while to make a malicious remark, no matter how clever it may be for those who may laugh at it at the time will lay it up against you un consciously and retain a vague sort of impression in their minds that you are not of the sweetest aad gentlest nature. HENDERSON, N. C, THURSDAY AUGUST CLIMATIC CONDITIONS. "NORTH CAROLINA AS A HEALTH RESORT." The Most Favored of All Lands A Great Diversity of Climate, Scenery and Natural Causes Conducive to Good Health and Long Life Facts Worth Considering Following is au extract from the speech of Mr. Hal W. Ayer. of tha Raleigh Cacaunian. at the banouet given complimentary to the Xort; I x.vitiu m. ivbo oiouvittiuu, iu urrecuo- boro, July 18th, responding to the toast "North Carolina as a Health Resort." So full of information con cerning this feature of our State and containing as it does so much of inserest and value to the genetal reader, we asked the privilege of publishing this portion of Mr. Ayer's remarks : Scenic and climatic influences have inspired many an eloquent tribute nnd thrilling to the natural glories and sunny skies of North Carolina; and her abstract fame has traveled as far as the wings of ballad and poesy can carry it. There has been no exaggeration. Too much has not been said; but the sentiment attendant upon utterances both descrip tive and eulogistic seems to have been so enthusingly patriotic, soulful and ethereal, as to lift the mind and imagi nation of reader or listener into a realm of fancy from which it is impossible to properly appreciate the material quali ties which inhere in everything within State lines. To pull down the dreamy fancy of the entranced auditor to yank him out of elysian reverence and bring him to understand that the scenery is actually natural that the climate is real and that such a combination of both as exists within the borders of Tar Hoel dom is conducive to so vulgar and material a thiiyr as active vitality and ruddy health would be a sacrilege of custom at any time, but especially so on such an occasion as this, when the pent up reason is supposed to be let loose to feast on everything in sight, regardless of consequences, and the imprisoned soul is released to join a flow of all immediate flowing material in a direction contrary to all orthodox instructions as to the course said soul should take. But, sir, something tangible is neces sarily the basis of all true inspiration. Let us try to discover and describe the real, the actual cause of the eloquence and song already mentioned, and see what conclusion a practical examination ot it will lead to. Of course this can not be done in detail here to-night certainly not to the extent of going into dry, good fellowship-killing statistics; but a lew tacts may be stated which will lead any one who may question or investi gate them to some remarkably interest ing and delightful discoveries. Reference to the mean parallels of latitude will show that North Carolina is situated nearly midway of the Union and since the Union lies entirely within the Temperate Zone, it follows that North Carolina is situated upon the central belt of that Zone. This position gives to the State climatical conditions not excelled by any section of country in the world. Other causes, apart from its position, concur to produce these results. On the West the lofty mountain chains interpose their mighty barrier between the bleak winds of the Northwest and the general surface of the State. On the East the coast is swept by the Gulf stream, the beneficent effect of which is felt far inland. From the position and these causes the temperature, which is more or less the regulator of life and health, ranges within moderate limits from season to season. The climate of a locality determines the desirability of that locality as a place of residence or resort for either health or pleasure. The average annual temperature of the whole Northern Hemisphere is 59.5; the average tem perature of North Carolina for 1894 was 59.6. So it will be seen that theclimate of North Carolina, in respect to heat and cold for the year, is almost exactly the same as the average of the whole Northern portion of the globe that part of the globe holding practically all the civiliza tion and all the advancement of the present age. There were only 108 rainy days of the 365 in 1894, and the precipitation was ample for the best health givinginfluences. Now, lets tnakesome brief comparisons. We can all remember something of the songs and praises we have heard of the balmy climes of Southern France Sunny Italy the Andalusian Valleys and other famed places to which many physicians in this country ordered their rich patients. We have seen that the average annual temperature for North Carolina is 59.6. . At Paris, of Sunny France, it is 50.8. ' At Naples, of Sunny Italy, it is 61.1 differing from North Carolina less than1 two degrees. At Madrid, in the Auda-1 lusian Valley land, it is 56.5 differing I liuiJi -ivii til vaiuuuu i.y mice ut ill if n. How can these places, so much famed for health giving qualities, be superior to North Carolina whose temperature is a happy mean between that of the points mentioned? From available authentic records we may carry the comparison a little further and show that for what may be called the six winter months the average temperature of North Carolina is 48. ; for Paris 42 ; for Naples 52 differing from North Carolina by four degrees ; for Madrid 45 a difference of three degrees. J ust one more step now and let us compare the summer records. For North Carolina theaverage tempera ture for the six summer months is 70; for Naples 69.5; for Madrid 67.5; for Paris 60. These are "the facts in the case," and that the climate of our State is not as far famed as that of any in the world is due to the remissness of some body. Gentlemen of the Press, is ours the fault? Another factor in determining the desirability of a locality as a place of resort or residence is the influence of climate upon health and life. Keeping in mind the fact that we are not going into details, we may state that alocality in which the mortuary rocord does not exceed 17 deaths a year for each thousand inhabitants is a very healthy section. In any illustration we may make in this matter, we mast omit reference to the colored race; for while it is unfortunate, it is still a fact that a tremendous majority of that people live iu obUrion of the results of sanitation. We may emphaaizo this fact by stating that iu Washington City, where the most com plete records are kept, the death rate among the whites is 17 per thousand, while under the same crimatio influences the death rata among the colored people is 30 per thousand. Remembering the fact that a death rate oJ 17 per thousand indicates a very healthy locality and environment, we may present the happy status of North Carolina by stating that the records of the North Carolina Stte Board of Health show the death rate in to have bwn 13.18, and for 189-t it was rejiorted an lO.ti. This latter showing i J just a little too good, and le, perhaps, the result of iuaccuracies of some local reports: but these may be balanced bv adding a small percentage to the death rate, making it, 6ay, 15 per thousand, and this record is one that no other State in the Union can equal. Massa chusetts, perhaps, secures and compiles more complete records of this character than any other Northern State, and its report for 1H94 shows the death rate to have been 20.74 per thousand. This rate is closely approximated by the mortuary record of other Northern States and sections. We would like to make a comparison of North Carolina's health and that of some other Southern States; but with the exception of Alabama none of them issue health reports, and Decompilation of the Alabama report is of such a character as to preclude the possibility of determining the health conditions there. Now, sir, from the facts here presented, we can easily arrive at positive conclu sions which would constitute u practical eulogy on North Carolina of such force and eloquence as not to be easily expressed, and for which no section of earth can offer a more solid basis or present stronger claims. Let us strip this assertion of sentiment by one more practical illustration : That dread dis ease, consumption, the cause of more mortality than any one affliction to which mankind is subject. The records, taken as a whole, show that one-seventh of all deaths reRult from that scourge, while iu North Carolina only one-twelfth of the mortality is from that source. It would be difficult to present a more practical or stronger proof than this in favor of the superiority of North Carolina as a place of residence or resort. And while what has been presented shows that its particular position on the earth and its climatic conditions stamp it as a place of all places for a u"er resort, it is almost, if not quite, equally as desirable as a winter resort. Concerning these facts there ought to be the fullest information and the widest dissemination. As secretary of a com mercial organization in your capital city, I am continually in receipt of inquiries concerning the general status of the city and State. And one of the very first questions asked relates to the death rate and general conditions of health. I do not think the State Press could exercise its efforts toward a greater benefit for North Carolina than to advo cate, urge and secure a sufficient public appropriation to equip the Board of Health with every agency necessary to discover the fullest data relative to the supreme advantages of climate and healtbfulness of our Commonwealth aud publish it to the world. This information is of first importance to a State which, like ours, is seeking to attract immi grants of intelligence and character, and to attract the tourist who is seeking recreation and health. The health argu ment is one of our very strongest points for pleasure Beekers especially, but it can not be very influential unless it is plainly presented and clearly supported. We have the facts. Let us collate aud offer them in such a conclusive exhibit as to put them above the questioning of the most random observer. If it were not superfluous here, it would be proper to take some account of the beauty and magnificence of the mountain scenery the gentle, graceful and pictu resque undulations of the Peidmont region the soft, balmy winter winds and soothing summer zephyrs of the Caroliua coast, which is the paradise of both rod and gun the myriads of springs from which gush the elixir of life from one end of the State to the other all of which constitute unequalled inducements and attractions for the tourist iu search of health, pleasure and sport. But of these things we all know. Let ns tell them to others. LefOs understand and proclaim that, with the natural advantages that tend to render growth more perfect, decay less rapid, life more vigorous, death more remote, the manifest destiny of North Carolina is a near approach to the fabled Atlantis as a resting place for all who seek temporary repose from the stern exactions of life, or a home where the most harmonious blendinsr of nature's grandeur and beauty is seen where the j fear of tempest is unknown and storm is less Frequent than anywhere else on the globe.

North Carolina Generals and the Wars in Which They Figured Many Illus trious Names Among the. List From the Revolution to the Civil War Nobly She Did Her Duty. BY WALTER CLARK. The following list of Generals whom North Carolina has furnished, and of the various wars through which she has passed, may merit preservation : DEI ORE THE REVOLUTION. Before the Revolution, North Caro lina, owing to the small number of troops she could furnish had no Gen erals except those ot the militia. She had a severe Indian War at home in 1711-' 13, and some Indian trouble later of minor importance. In 1 7 15 she sent her first expedi tion beyond the State, being horse and foot soldiers under Col. Maurice Moore, to aid South Carolina against the Yemassee Indians. In 1740 she sent four companies of 100 each in the only expedition this country has ever made beyond the Continent, to Carthagena, South America. James Innes (afterwards Colonel in the French war), Robert Halton and Coltrane were three of the Captains. In the same year, 1740, she sent troops in the expedition under Oglethorpe against St. Augustine, Florida, then under the control of the Spanish. In the latter expedition her troops, exclu sive of the company of Highlanders, probably from near Fayetteville, (then Cross Creeks) under Capt. Mcintosh, were combined with the Virginia and South Carolina troops into a regiment commanded by Van Derdussen. The company of Highlanders were espe cially exposed and were cut off almost to a man at Fort Moose. In the French war, she sent in 1755, prior to Braddock's defeat, a regiment to Winchester, Va., under command of Col. James Innes, who took the command, outranking at the time Lt. Col. George Washington, who com manded the Virginia forces. Her troops who fought the battle of Ala mance against the Regulators, 16th May, 1 77 1, were detachments of militia commanded by their Colonel under uovernor lryon who was in chief command. Gen. Hugh Waddell, who had seen some service against the French and Indians in a lower rank, commanded some 300 militia across the battle-field. IN THE REVOLUTION, 1 775-83. North Carolina had in the " Conti nental Line :" 1 Major-General, Robert Howe. 4 Brigadier Generals, James Moore, died in service Feb ruary, 1777. Francis Nash, killed at Germantown, October, 1777. Jethro Sumner. James Hogun, died a prisoner of war at Charleston, S. C, January 4, 1781. Besides these, the following Gener als of Militia commanded troops in action : General John Ashe, at Briar Creek, Ga., March, 1779. General Richard Caswell, at Cam den, S. C, August, 1780. General Isaac Gregory, at Camden, S. C, August, 1780, where he was wounded and the conduct of his men highly praised by the British. General Griffith Rutherford, at Stono. Tune. 1770. and at Camden. S. C. August. 1780. where he was woun(iecl and captured, General William Lee Davidson, killed at Cowan's Ford, October, (He Colonel in the Continental Line.) General John Butler, at Stono, June 20, 1779, at Camden, August 16, 1780 and at Guilford C. H., 16th t arcn i78j General William Eaton, at Guilford C- H f I5th March, 1 781. Norlh Carolina furnished ten regi- ments of Regulars to the Continental 1 1 ;ne one batterv of artillerv fKintrs- bury's) and three companies of Cavalry. Besides this her militia were frequently ordered out on "tours of duty." Alone and unaided they won the brilliant victories at Moore's Creek, Ramseur's Mills and King's Mountain, and helped the Regulars lose the battles'of Camden and Guilford C. H. They j ajso shared in the battles of Stono, Briar Creek. Cowoens and the surren- ; der at Charleston. The North Caro- lina Continentals rendered efficient service at Brandywine, Germantown, Monmouth, Eutaw at the seiges of Charleston and Savannah, and else where and formed part of the garrison of West Point when our General Howe succeeded Arnold in command there on the latter's treason and flight. in" war of 1812-15. Brigadier Geieral Joseph Graham, in command of the brigade of North Carolina and South Carolina troops sent in 1814 to aid of General Andrew Jackson in the Creek War. General Graham had attained the rank of Ma jor in the Revolutionary War and had hn harllv wAuivied at th rantnrt? of Charlotte, 1780. IN MEXICAN WAR, 1S46-47.
