DAILY STATE GHRONICLE, AUGUST i, 1891.
mm ui mm BRING PROSPERITY Mr. F. W. Barnes Net ted $120 on One Acre . in Pea-Nuts Last Year. SIX BALES OF COTTON 0N THREE ACRES. The Carriage Works and Wilson CoUon Mills are the Pride of the Town. (Staff Cor. State Chronicle) Wilson, N. C, July 30, 1891 Not only is tobacco engrossing the minds of the farmers around Wil son, but pea-nuts are also receiving considerable attention. From twenty-five acres, Mr. C. A. Young re ceived three thousand bushels, which he sold at 60 cents per bushel, net ting $70 per acre. He has fifty acres in cultivation now. Mr. F. A. Woodard from twenty acres in pea-nuts received 2,400 bushels, which he sold at 72 cents per bushel. In 1882, Mr. Frank Barnes re ceived 700 bushels from seven acres. He sold at $1.40 per bushel, thus netting $120 an acre. Mr. Barnes is also one of the largest cotton growers in the country. Last sea son he made six bales of cotton on three acres. He received 137 bales from 145 acres. These are facts, and show that Wil son is doing. The peanuts tobacco and cotton of the surrounding country seem to me to be as fine as could be desired. Wilson has a flourishing cotton factory which began in 1882 with 5,000 sindles. The plant cost $100,- 000, while only $76,000 was sub scribed. This indebtedness of $24, 000, together with 2,500 additional spindles, two large Denn warpers, a new set of boilers, electric lights, automatic sprinklers, and four Siangan warehouses has been paid out of the earnings of the mill. These automatic Grindle sprinklers, placed all over the mill, ten feet apart, have reduced insurance one half of one per cent. There are employed in this mill 125 opera tives ; their pay-roll is from $350 to $375 a week. On every Satur dav afternoon at 4 o'clock these operatives are paid off to the cent in actual money. The goods are sold direct to consumers, not on consignment. Of these mills, Mr A. Branch is President, Mr. G. D. Green is Vice-President, Mr. Jas. McDonald is Superintendent, while Mr. J. C. Hales is Secretary and w Treasurer. Through the courtesy of Mr. James McDonald, the Su perintendent, I was enabled to see the many operatives busy as bees at their work. The mill pays well now, though hitherto the earnings have been devoted to paying off the indebtedness and to improvements. The pride ; of Wilson is the car riage factory of Hackney Bros. & n - - rra oimpson. ims estaoiisnment in cludes three large bricjt buildings, each of the first two being three stories,' whh elevators. From this establishment, they turn out sixteen or seventeen vehicles every week, costing from $80 to $250 each. Their third building is 325 feet long; in it is the blacksmith shop with six forges, an engine of fifty horse capacity, and a wood shop. In the factory fifty-five operatives are em ployed, with a pay-role of $350 a week. The plant, established in 1854, is now worth $50,000. This firm composed of three brothers and Mr. W. P. Simpson, has a very large sale store at Rocky Mount. Who after read ing this, can doubt Wilson's pro gress. Wilson, with her two banks, her nine tobacco prize housesier cotton factory, carriage factory, foundry, sash, door and blind factory, may reasonably be classed as one of the most progressive towns in North Carolina. "You will find Wilson" says Mr. Isaac Dortch, of Golds boro, "to be an enterprising, mov ing town." The farmers of Wilson' county are in a better condition than ever known before. The name of Mr. Woodard is be ing favorably mentioned in this dis trict for Congress. The writer feels sure that the people could not select a worthier man. F. M.
