A recent in tiniry by a Senate committee exploded as fallacious the popular impression j that the high mice of cotton acroauts, (or the ever-iucreaMng cost of cotton -goods. , "The raw enttn entering into the1 tu.iiim"acti;re of a handkerchief selling for lwenty-nw cents costs less than one and a half cents acroidii.g lo the facts oevel.iped i the Senate inquiry. ; A i-ti'ce of ginuh&iu that retails for four dollars and City cents contains, cottoti :lu't sold to the mills for tweii-ly-five c:i:s at the prtvailiiig market cost, in some instances.

While sojourning in a well-known city to the southeast of us in quest of a beau tiful young lady, the lady asked the Colonel why he limped end why the peculiar shape of his feel. The Col onel ivpld as (ii:ck as a Hash that his feet took that shaoe front walk ing on the l ish iiailheads tit the Jack son Cotton Mill mid he sot that limp when he fell Ihioush a cotton Hour there. Mrs. Funderhtirk does not seem disposed to arsue her case, as I have seen three direct answers to her short article on 'learltlns." I urn of I he ,uiie opinion as her. and 1 will say that I have hud Borne direct expert-i enee at teaching in a more difficult place than I'ttlon county. I will be xin wit i ihe sabry, that seems to be the terchers' Nemesis, or stumbl ing bloc1;. The avetase school is in attendance about five hours a day, live days a week, there are four weeks a mouth which makes a hundred hours a month. The average teacher gels seventy-live dollars per month or seventy-live cents per hour which is equivalent to seven and one-half dol- lars tor ten hours, as applied to the hours 1 work. Oh! but my work does not stop when I leave the school room. You say, nobody's does that I know. Ask a business man if he forgets his work the moment he rinses his office door? Again I will 'say not live per cent of the teachers depend on teaching for a livitts and veu If your "Holy Highness" has ito go out and earn something by ihe sweat of your brow.

Now, 1 an going lo de.wid ' to so::ie plain facts ns I hm it. and our county seperiniendem is not to blame either, for he does the bi f t , can with what he has.

One thins mote and I am done. I asked a young girl teacher who was from Tennessee why she had come so far to teach. She said she wanted to gel experience away from home, and marry a nice young man. I think that holds good In I'nion county. In my last letter to The Journal I advocated the Cotton Association.
