DIPLOMATIC GENERAL PASSENGER AGENT
ALLEN, OF THE SEABOARD AIR LINE.
A Good Story Told at the Expense of
Billy" Christ fan-Something in a
Name Whether Shakespeare Thought j
so or Not How a Party of Religious-
ly Inclined Females Were Cleverly 1
Disposed of.
(Nowitzky's Monthly Magazine.)
The heads of departments of great
railroads often lind it necessary to j
use considerable diplomacy to keep j
their ollice from beinj; invaded durinw !
business hours.
It is strange that well-meaning
people cannot realize that the ollice of
a transportation company is :t work
shop, instead of a conversation room,
to relieve the tedium of wailing pas
sengers. A good story iu this connection is
told in which Mr. Allen, General Pas
senger Agent of the Seaboard, Mr.
Christian of the
anie department, ;
and a number of vcrv relii'iouslv in
clined young ladies, chaperoned bv
an elderly evangelical enthusiast, who
had come down on a Northern steamer
several hours too late to take the
Southbo.und train, were the leading
lignres.
It apjicnrs that the. young ladies
had got tired of the long wait and
concluded to look about to find where
they could relieve the tedium and
make men better. They enquired of
a railroad man if there were not
olliccs up stairs in whicn a larire num
ber of men were employed.
The iretitlenian. observing at once
that they were travelers and thinking
that they miirht have some business '
with the passenger department
-
rected them to that ollice.
As soon as they arrived they asked
for the gentleman in charge, and in a
moment later Mr. Allen approached,
arid when he saw the bevy of beauty
and culture that surrounded him he
came near losing his heart, but not
his head. With a smile that showed
his appreciation of the visit he asked
them in most pleasing accetits if he I
could be of any service to them, par- i ,,
ticularlv in connection with the rail
. . ' . !
road he had the honor to represent.
The' informed him that they had
no particular business to transact:
that they were waiting for the next
train, which would leave in about six
hours, and would like to take up a
part of it in discussing religious
topics with any sinners that might be
in his ollice, with the hope of improv
ing their spiritual welfare.
Mr. Allen immediately squared him
self to make a formal but courteous
address, and these, as near as I can
gather, were the words he spoke:
"Ladies, I know you will be sur-j
prised when I tell you that this is one j
of the most remarkable otlice-build-,
ings in America. II ttiere is a con
tinued sinner iti it, I do not know it.
There is a moral atmosphere that
prevails here that is astonishing," and
then, dramatically pointing into his
ollice. he continued, "do you see that
studious and melancholy gentleman
who looks as if he had just left the
stage, after speaking the lines of the
Dane iu Hamlet?" The ladies assured
him by their looks and gentle nods of
the head that they were paying strict
attention. "Well," he continued, "he
is one of the best Christians I have
ever seen.
T say best," he added enthusias
tically, "from the fact that he has
always been a Christian, not a Pagan
one day and a saint the next, but
always the same man. As a child, he
was gladly proclaimed a Christian
he grew to manhood a Christian, and
now in full maturity nothing gives
him greater pleasure than the knowl
edge that he is to-dav what he has
always been, a Christian: and no mat
ter what may occur in the future,
when the tinal summons conies he will
die a Christian.'
Has he always been h railroad
man?" asked the chaperon of the
party.
"No, madame," was the reply. "He
fore he joined our road he was one of
the brightest of newspaper men. and
in gathering the news he would often
find himself in some exceedingly bad
places and at other times surrounded
bv many temptations, but it made no
difference whether in the slums, with
the air blue with profanity, or at the
banquet of a millionaire, where cham
pagne flowed like water, he never
forgot that he was a Christian, and
the beauty of it is that all the other
men in my department are just like
him. moral, conscientious and indus
trious." The ladies, greatly impressed with
the relijrious air that dominated everv
desk of the passenger department of
the Seaboard Air Line Kailway, drew
memorandum books from their
pockets and made notes of what they
had just heard, to assist in future
literary work, and then bade their
genial and descriptive new found
friend good-bye.
As to Mr. Allen, when he reached
his ollice. where a dozen busy men
were pushing pens and tapping type
writers with all the energy that thev
could command in order to get
through in reasonable time the great
amount of work that the rapidly in
creasing passenger business of the
load compelled, he walked up to the
gentleman he had just pictured as the
ideal for the rest of the world to
model after, and said:
Mr. Christian. I believe it was
Shakespeare who wrote: 'That a rose

The Greensboro correspondent of
the Charlotte Observer says Mr. J. F.
Jordan, the well known tobacco deal
er of that city, has been notified that
an exhibit of leaf tobacco prepared by
him for the Paris Exposition had re

hibit was composed of all grades,
special attention being paid the cigar
ette goods and strips, which are the
grades most sought after by the
European trade.
At the World's Fair Mr. Jordan
made an exhibit of leaf tobacco that
was conceded '.o be the finest ever

A Voice From Out of the West Calls
for His Election.
The 1'rcss, of Franklin, Macon
count", noting the fact that Gen.
Carr had announced himself a can
didate for United States Senator,
pays that gentleman the following
handsome and merited tribute:
As a private citizen Gen. Carr has
done more than any other man in
North Carolina to promote the State's
most material interests. He has
given liberally to help the cause of
education, and has done more for
Confederate veterans of the State than
any one else. It was only last week
at Raleigh that he proposed to fur
nish the new buildiug at the Soldiers'
Home, as soon as it is completed, at
his own expense.
"At the recent Kansas City Na
tional Democratic convention, (Jen.
Julian S. Carr was not only a con
spicuous and prominent member, but
! received the unanimous vote of the
North Carolina delegation and votes
from other States for the vice-presidency.
"Of all the men who have w rought
well for our State it is but simple
justice to say that Gen. Carr has ex
celled all others. Now that he has
made known his aspirations, we are
frank to say it will only be showing
proper gratitude for the good people
of our Commonwealth to give him
the political position he wants. There
is no honor that the Democratic party
could bestow upon him that would
not be worthily bestowed."

Curing Peavine Hay.
PRACTICAL METHOD OF SECURING
RESULTS AT SMALL COST.
BEST
Bulletin Issued by the Arkansas Ex
periment Station Which is of Value
to Farmers No Difficulty in Curing
the Vines When Directions Here
Given are Followed Of Especial
Value In Rainy Weather.
The following is from a recent pub
lication of the Arkansas Experiment
Station, and is of value to fv t iers
generally:
Formerly farmers complained cf
the difficulty in curing the pea vines
for hay, but now the manner of cur
ing is better understood and that
complaint is seldom heard. There is
no difficulty in curing the vines in the
field when the weather is dry, at the
mowing, but frequent rains" at that
time make curing very difficult. I
printed in Bulletin 27 a description of
a stock frame which I had tested with
iii, cured vines and it was entirely suc
cessful. Every farmer should have
such a frame to save his hay when
rains occur at mowing time. Follow
ing is a description of the frame as it
appeared in Bulletin 27. The cost of
the frame is practically nothing, and
lasts several years:
Construction: The
struction is a series of
made of rails or poles
plan of con
open shelves
placed about
twelve inches apart with their ends
resting on horizontal supports. The
supports are nailed two feel apart to
upright posts with one end securely
in the ground. Strips 1x4 with ends
resting on the ground are nailed diag
onally to the horizontal supports for
braces. They are to prevent the
frame inclining and for supporting
and holding iu place the ends 0f the
horizontal pieces.
The length of the stock frame can
be increased indefinitely by erecting
fiames distant from each other the
length of a fence rail, or whatever is
used. These cross frames can be
made on the ground and then set in
place. The sides of the stack must
be perpendicular, since pea vines will
not turn water. To give the top a
proper pitch to turn water, the top
shelf is made narrower than the shelf

occocsotocooego
below by leaving out the
side rails.
Sufficient straw or grass hav
is used
for covering, and it must be made to
project over the edges of the first
wide shelf so as to turn all water off
the sides of the frame. The dimen
sions are as follows:
Width, 10 feet.
Length, three fence rails, ll feet
each.
Shelves, 2 feet apart.
Kails, 12 inches apart on the hori
zontal support.
Capacity, about four tons dry hay.
The height can be increased until
inconvenient to put hay on the top
shelf. It would doubtless be cheaper
and better to use stout, dry poles of
greater length than rails, the frame
would be sufficiently strong, and a
less number of cross frames would be
required. Small rails or poles would
be better to use than large ones, as
thev would occupy less space, but the
frame material must not be green.
It should be observed that free venti
lation is allowed in all directions.
The cost is very small, two ordinary
farm hands can get the material in
the woods and erect it. A permanent
roof of boards could be used to cover
the frame, and in that case, instead of
using the diagonal braces, posts could
be used and the ends of the horizontal
supports nailed to them. The middle
line of posts could be dispensed with
i or made taller than those on side to
support the comb of the roof, while
! the eaves would be supported by the
' lower outside posts.
I Stacking Hay To put green cow
pea vines in the frame all the rails or
j shelves are taken out and only the
cross frames are left standing. The
: first floor of the rails at the ground
' are put about twelve inches apart on
! the horizontal supports. The wagon
! of hay is then driven alongside and
' one man onloads the hay on the floor,
while another even it until slightly
above the place for the next shelf;
then the rails or poles for it are
placed. The hay is then put on that
floor in the same way as on the first,
and so on with each floor, until the
top is reached, when the cover of
straw or boards is put on.
In removing the hay for feeding it
is taken first from the lower floors
and then from those above. The
cover being the last removed, pro
tects the hay until all of it has been
fed out. Beginning on one side of
one section, the hay can be drawn out
of the sides of the two first floors and
the rails or poles removed from these
floors as theT become in the way; the
same is done with the remaining ones.
To remove all the hay at once, work
should begin at the top of the stack.
The vines cure entirely in the shade
and retain the flavor, aroma and a
bright green color, all very desirable
qualities. When hay of any kind is
cured by being spread to the hot sun
these desirable qualities are almost
entirely lost.
The vines can be stacked as soon as
wilted; if cut in the morning and ex
posed to the sun they can be stacked
that evening. By stacking the vines
when wilted no loss of leaves occur
and the very best hay is made. A
very important advantage is gained
by the use of the frame iu that hay
can be made independently of the
weather. Cow pea hay is bulky and
much barn room can be saved by cur
ing and storing in the frame than
baling.
By having the pea crop ready to
cut at different times, and by the use
of the stack frame in the event of
rain, pea hay could be grown exten
sively and baled for the market.
To properly cure cow pea hay in
the sun or open air the mowing must
be done after the dew has evaporated
from the vines; then as soon as the
leaves appear to be dying the vines
must be raked in windows, then into
cocks and finally into cover. The
best stage to cut cow peas for the
most and best hay with least trouble
in curing and loss of leaves is when
the oldest pods have turned yellow.
A girl never thinks that she is a
belle until she has several rings.
When it comes to breathing, every

ADDRESS TO THE NORTH CAROLINA

The Cause of the Low Price of North
Carolina Bright Leaf, and the Rem
edyThe Farmers Must Organize
for Self-Protection.
The following circular letter,
ad
of lressed to the tobacco
North Carolina, has been sent
to the
Gulp Leaf for publication:
At a meeting of the executive com
mittee in the city of Raleigh, May
24th, the Secretary of the North Caro
lina Tobacco Growers' Association
was requested to issue an address to
the tobacco growers in the bright
tobacco belt calling their attention to
the Association, its scoimj and pur
poses.
The necessity of an organization of
tobacco growers of the State was dis
cussed at some of the agricultural
meetings during the State Fair in
Raleigh, October, 189'J. From this a
call was issued by Mr. J. Bryan
(irimes, who had been chosen presi
dent of the temporary association, for
a tobacco growers convention to meet
in the city of Raleigh. December 6th,
lH'J'j. and another convention was held
at Raleigh, January 7th, 1900.
The convention in January was
well attended by growers, warehouse
men and others interested in tobacco
from this State and Virginia. At this
meeting a permanent organization j
was effected, and the North Carolina
Tobacco Growers' Association sprang
into existence, with well defined pur-j
poses; not a rival, but an ally to the
other farmers' organizations in the
State.
The tobacco growers were ably rep
resented and the personnel of the
convention was strong. The griev
ances of the tobacco growers were set
before the convention, and with sing
ularly unanimity it was agreed that
they could be remedied. The concen
sus of opinion was: "That there are
no influences set in motion by man
that cannot be met and remedied by
men." The present low prices of
tobacco and their causes were dis
cussed. It was shown that while the
acreage had materially increased dur
ing the last decade that the consump
tion also of tobacco had kept apace
with the increase, and, in fact, if such
a thing were possible, that the next
few years would see the consumption
outstrip the increase in yield. New
territory has been invaded and manu
factured North Carolina bright to
bacco is no longer a stranger in the
Orient, nor in the islands of the
Pacific ocean, while South Africa and
other new territory are asking for our
golden leaf. With the increased
demand and the limited area that
grows bright tobacco, the growers
could see no just cause for the low
prices. In fact, could see no cause
at all except such as has been brought
about by the American Tobacco Com
pany. It is alleged that this company gets
as much per pound, or 1,000, for its
products now as it did ten years ago,
when they paid two or three times as
much for the raw material as thev
now pay. This has been made pos
sible with them by organization and
controlling the situation. They saw
the necessity of controlling the out
put of manufactured tobacco, as well
as the raw material. To this effect
they have purchased or otherwise
silenced nearly all strong competi
tion. By this means they have taken
buyeis off the warehouse floors, as
well as the sellers of manufactured
tobacco from out of the markets. In
this way they have shown us the
power and effectiveness of organiza
tion. They have given the growers
an object lesson that they should not
be slow to profit by. The interest
that was evinced at the January
meeting of the tobacco growers show
ed their zeal and determination in
the matter. They have been working
for the enrichment of the trusts, and
to the impoverishment of their own
farms and families, until they have
decided to make a change to find a
remedy for the low prices or make
one, as President Grimes so well said
in his address before that body. Some!
insist that if the remedy lies iu or-
gauization, we will never get it, as the
organization of the famern is an mi
possibility.
Old army officers laughed iu scorn

ured. The organization of .he farm

farmers less at stake, less to aceom-

motives that impellhem, the neces-

will give them strength. The Amer

for the added accumulation of wealth.

men we should spurn the thought.
We can master the situation. We
can cross the "Alps." It is not im
possible. Nothing thai is possible is
impossible to determined men. We
do not lack the strength, but the will;
for we are as strong as we are deter
mined. The impossible belongs to
the weak and vacillating.
By organization, such as the To
bacco Growers' Association is working
for, the tobacco growers can maintain
their position, their respect, their
manhood. Without it, in a few years
with present tendencies, they will
have lost much that our forefathers
held dear independence. The pic
ture is not bright to be sure, but it
would be folly for us to spread a veil
over its hideousness, thereby hiding j
the truth and deceiving ourselves.
The Association asks the support of j
tobacco growers of the bright tobacco j
belt. It wauts your support. Can it)
have it? The strongest appeal that I :
could possibly make to you would :
pale beside the appeal that comes to
you from your own home, from those '
who are dependent on you for the
comforts and advantages that an iu-!
dustrious life in a civilized country '
entitles them to. Neither would it !
strike you with the force your disa
pointed hopes do, when on the ware- '
house floor your tobacco is knocked 1
off to the only bidder for that grade ,
of tobacco at a price that barely ,
covers the cost of cultivation, and ;
often fails to do that well. You are
askeu to t ne your innuence to me
Association and help restore the to
bacco growers to the same prosper
ous condition that they occupied ten
years ago when they were reckoned
among the most fortunate farmers iu
the State. Will not this appeal from
the farmers, for the restoration of the
prosperity that marked the tobacco
grower, lind a responsive chord in
your heart? To say that nothing can
be accomplished is to surrender with
out effort, au unconditional surren
der.
The "plan" is to orgauize every
township and couuty in the bright
tobacco district, and to get every to
bacco grower in the territory an
active, enthusiastic member. In ter
ritory that has been partially organ
ized, we ask that thorough organiza
tion be pushed to completion. In
counties where there has been no or
ganization, we ask that the tobacco
growers call a convention and or
ganize under the plan adopted by the
State Association. Put organizers iu
the field and cease not until every
township is thoroughly organized.
Is the task stupendous? Not as large
as some may think, for there will be
willing helpers to encourage the or
ganizers. But there must be leaders
in this, as iu all successful move
ments. Now is the time to do effec
tive work. As soon as an organiza
tion is effected, notify the State sec
retary, giving names and post-oflice
addresses of the president and secre
tary. It has been said that tobaceo
can go lower, which is true and may
be verified unless the growers say:
It shall not go lower. In their deter
mination lies the secret of theiruc
cess. The reports coming into this
office show that there has been a
decrease in the acreage of tobacco
planted this year of not less than 25
per cent., possibly more. That should
mean better prices for the crop. Will
you help to make it bring the in
creased price that a short crop should
bring? Organize, co-operate. Sue
cess depends on these coupled with
determination.

COULD HAVE SUNK THE NEW YORK.
A Successful Night Attack Upon the

Newpokt, R. I.. August 31. The
big cruiser New York, the flagship of
the North Atlantic squadron, could
have been sunk to-night as she lay at

Bay, from a torpedo fired at her by
the submarine boat Holland. Not
only would the New York have feuffer

gone tu the bottom also.
