IT READS LIKE II HI!! HIE New Bern's Wonderful Success in Trucking Is as Astonishing As it is True FIGURES THAT TELL THE TALE. On an $8,000 Tract of Land One Firm NtUed Over $30,000 Has Season. Ed torial Correspondence. New IJeune, X. C, June 30 It is always a rare-pleasure for me to visit this prosperous and grow ing citv. There is a false notipn in some quarters that this city is I chiefly concerned to preserve the memorials of its glorious past and j is not going forward with its sister ' towns in buines enterprises that bring wealth. Such a notion would b; dispelled by a brief visit. No- where have I found more interest -in business, and novhere is there more hopefulness and ear-j nestings in all material projects I than here in this delightful old j town. The people are ju.-tly proud of the part New Ik-rue has taken in I everv irreat movement that has brought honor to the State in all its j history. But there is no supine-I ,iK'i-s proi.uc a iy lingering over worthy traditions. They rather tend to stimulate alertness and air- gn-snvrness in business so that the j should prove a failure, still the net Xew iWne of to-day may be worthy , profit on two acres will be over $1, of tli- New Uerne of the pat. And -J00; and then there would be a evidences of progress are to be seen ! chance to make up that loss on the on every hand. Whether we have j fourth crop. There is no Mirmise rejraru to the hanking capital it is liess, show solid irrowth and substantial success; private resi- deuces and business places many are frehly painted, and the aspect of tin citv as one of gneral beaut v ami tli rift. It" 'we have reference to th- trucking interest of Xew Uerne and vicinity, we stand amazed at the phenomenal results that have enriched the truckers. I shall not go into the particu lar.s of New Heme's grow th and prospects to-day alon' other lines, That will he done in the(CiiKoN - iclf:, by n meinber of its stall" shortly. To-day I merely want to give a few figures showing what has been done here bv two truckers. What they have done, 5,000 capa ble men could have done andean do. $30,000 CLEARED ON FAItM. AX $8,000 Four years ago Messrs. Hack nuiiN & Willets, two of New Berne's best young men, purchased a lunn 01 z,uuu acres about 2 miles from the chy, for which they agreed to pay $8,000. Only about f.ne fourth of the land is in cultiva tion. They began to improve the land and every year have made large dividends upon their invest ment. Thi j year they have made the most phenomenal success of any business in the history of the State. Up to this time their net profits on the cabbage, potatoes and quan tities of other truck, have amounted to OVER THIRTY THOUSAND DOL LARS. Think of it! Upon an $8,000 farm, in one year the profits are four times as much as the farm cost! This is a wonderful record and shows what this soil is capable of doing. Over $30,000 has been made and only to-day hpve they begun to ship eantelopes and other truck. It is not probable that from this source they wPl net $5,000,and the profits on the land for the year will approximate $40,000 or five times the value of the land.

"Watson and Daniels own a farm half a mile from the city, limits, and cultivated this year fifty acres. In February and March they shipped from two acres of this land a large crop of cabbage which they sold in the Northern and Western markets. They got from those two acres 400 barrels of cabbage, the net proceeds of which were $1.50 a barrel, or $000 for the crop. After the cab bage were sold, the same land was planted in potatoes and the harvest was 205 barrels which were'idng about the tenth of June. - These po tatoes sold for $5.50 to $6.00 in the Northern markets, netting $4.75 per barrel. This gave a total- of $973.75 from the potatoes. They will now put a' new crop on the same land from which they will probably make $200 or $300 an acre. As soon as that one is marketed, they will plant cabbage on the same land again. This gives 3 crops on the same land In one vear. To summarize: receipts on two acres. Cabbages $600.00 potatoes " 073.75 Third crop to be matle gav 40o'.00 ' " $1,073.75 THE EXl'ENSES.

It must not be understood that these gentlemen cultivate onlv two acres. I hey cultivate fifty acres upon which they make a general variety of crops of all kinds. I give the figures as to these two acres be- cau(i upon Tins tiioy kW'i an accu- r .1 1 .1 1 raic oxiicnso account, un tne en j tire croj., the net profit was between j Ss,o0(J and $10,000. The accurate 1 inures cannot be nven to-day be- lay cause they have not yet gotten in all their returns. SOME FIGURES AS TO QUANTITY OF TRUCK. I had a pleasant interview with Mr. Vm. II. Oliver, who i. full of public spirit and is a walking en cyclopaedia of facts. He says: The quantity of Truck which has been produced has been enormous. In regard to the quantity, during the shipping season the Railroad and two Steamship's have been taxed to the utmost of their capacity to move it. The Kailroad Company has run from one to three trains daily, car rying from three to four thousand barrels and boxes each train; the steamer Neuse has made three trips per week carrying from four thou sand to four thousand five hundred barrels and boxes each week each trip; the steamer Newbern has made two trips each week carrying trorn two thousand to two thousand five hundred barrels and boxes each trip. The railroad has shipped 70 train loads, say 210,000 The steamer Neuse has taken 80,000 The steamer Newbern has taken C0,000 350,000 boxes and barrels consistingof straw berries, asparagus, green peas, cab bages, beans, kale, beets, turnips, Irish potatoes, tomatoes, cucumbers, egg plants, radishes, etc. . , tio iiu'i n 13 en in iu iiuint nmi; ; SOME FIGURES AS TO PRICES REALIZED. The prices realized for the above have been extraordinary, and. the amount realized from the sales of them has, by the most conservative estimate, reached the sum of $750, 000; which has realized, after de ducting freight and expenses, $500, 000 to our farmers. . The calcula tion is based upon the following: There was .shipped-'-at least one hundred thousand barrels of Irish potatoes; gome- ol - "these potatoes sold at $7.00 per barrel, many at $6.00, a large quantity at" $5.50 per barrel, doubtless realizing $5.00 per uarreu wnicu wouiu -- make: - I ; $500 000 ' Two hundred antr fifty thousand barrels and boxes of other articles above v at $1.00 each - 250000 " " $750 000 This amount is larger than the sales of tobacco in any county in Nortn Carolina, save one, viz: "Granville," and it is just equal to that. . A solid, substantial boom, backed by a half million of dollars, is upon us. This is no bubble, no slitter. no display, it is something unpre cedented. PREPARING FOR TORS.
