Orangeburg Agricultural Society.
A regular meeting of this Society
was held tit ilio Fair Building on
Saturday ICtli instant, Dr. W. F.
Barton in tins chair; after reading
and confirming the minutes of tho
last meeting, the names of several
farmers were proposed and elected to
lull membership. The proper time
having arrived, the Secretary an
nounced the following question for
discussion: Can our lands be made
to produce live times their natural
yield ?
Dr. J. C. Hol man opened the dis
cussion with what was said to bo au
analysis of the Charleston phos
phates and their adaptability to our
soils, lie advocated the sowing and
j lowing under of pea vines as a gooil
preparation for cotton, because tho
roots of that plant weiosaid to po33< ss
an acid capable Of dissolving the
minor:;1, matter in the soil and con
verting it into plant food.
Prof. Bibikov gave a scien
tific account of the different elements
composing the several fertilizers, and
the causes why they failed to give
satisfactory results on certain crops.
Dr. Cooko recommended the
use of in ail and lime
as the most practical way
of improving lands, and gave a de
scription of the improved soils in the
Southern portion of New Jersey and
other suctions of the North.
The chufa was the next subject.
Mr. Wm. Mat hey was inclined to
think hogs, fattened on the chufa,
yielded more lard and sweeter meat
than those fed on any other food. The
to]> was good food for .-took and cutting
the top oil' improved both the yield
mikI tin; size of the nut. lie is a
strong chufa man and thinks every
f: rmcr should plant them.
M'r. Iivin Dukes said the moat and
lard were a* firm as if the hogs had
been led on eorm His field, after
supplying his hogs with ample food
din ing the winter, see led itself and
Mr. J. J. .-alley thought, by planT-^
ing small grain in addition to the
chufa, hogs could he raised and kepi
fat every month in the year without
corn except, perhaps lite month of
April. The chufa dilfered from nu t
giass in the fact, that tit c formorgrew
on the roots at the surface of the
ground, while the latter went dee])
into the subsoil. '1 ho chufa could he
easily destroyed for this reason.
Dr. Ilolnuuisaid the chufa was an
indigenous plant, grew well on sandy
.-oil and needed little moisture.
Sorgutn ami sugar cane were next
i discussed. Mr. Sal ley advocated rais
iug these plants to save buying
syrup in the market. Ho thought
they < ould he raised in abundance
:md perhaps become a money yield
ing crop.
Mr. Mnckcy raised then as a con
venience to hire labor, in this way he
thought them profitable.
Mr. Dukes made an experimen t
during the last year with cotton, which
proved conclusively that the phos
phates did not pay.
Mr. Mnckcy said it was not the
policy of the farmer to purchase phos
phates at [tho present exorbitant
Mr. Riggs believed that pea vines
were, the best fertilizer ami wore as
valuable with the grain oll'a* on.
Dr. W. H. Barton asked if the con
tinued use ofcolteu seed, as a manure,
d id not. prevent the growth of pens.
He instanced a field of his which hail
been thus treated and which won Id
not now make a crop of peas.
Prof. Bibikov said it was
owing to the want of lime in the soil.
Mr. Dukes was inclined to think
inat tho land had been cultivated too
long without a supply of vegetable
mat tor.
Tho President suggested calcined
lime as a remedy.
At tltis stage of the proceedings
Mr, liiggs, chairman of a committee
appointed at tho lust meeting, made
tho following report embodying the
k slimatcs of the probable cost of t he
purchase und running oi machinery
for a yarn factory:
A rough estimate of cost for erect
ing, purchasing, and putting three of
tho Clement attachments into opera
tion for spinning or manufacturing
yarn from eccd cotton.
Tr three Clement machine/ with
all necessary machinery to
run them,. $5,000.
Steam power for driving
sumo,. 82,500
Lot and buildings, . $2,000
Total. S0,5()0
18 operatives (girls and boys)
$20 per month. 8300,00
One Engineer, per month . $50
One Superinteudant per
month. 8100
Oil and Sundries. 830
Wood, (30 chords at $.'? a c)
. $90
Cartage. 828
Total cost of operating one
month. $058,00
Total cost for 48 weeks
(one working year). $7890,00
The above machinery will
manufacture into yarn
per month 14,400 Iba which
sell at 20 cents per lbs.... S2S30.00
Deduct cost of seed cotton
rating clean cotton at 10.. $1-1-10,00
Leaves gross earnings per
mouth. $1440,00
Deduct expenses per mouth.. 8658,00
Not monthly earnings. $782,00
Net per year. 80,384,00
Deduct for contingencies
00 per cent. $28,15,00
leaves a profit of.. $0,509 00
On a co-pi al of. $9500,00
oi about 70 per cent.
fn addition to the capital of 89,
> 0 to he Used us already stated, it is
^e cssnry to have a surplus rund of
)\ Tin l wolo leu ihiMi.-.'.ir.l rWtlttr*, .
the purchase of seed cotton; also to
pliable tho company to hold their
yarns and not be compelled to throw
i hem on a declining market; also to
1'ity operatives until I he first manu
factured goods might he sold.
Tu run these machines it will take,
for 48 w< eks 172 ,00 lbs of seed cotton
equal to 4->2 b iles of 400 lbs each,
ginned cotton, from the 1st of Septem
ber to the 1-t of January. Seed
cotton may he purchased us wanted;
or a rate of lull he established ?so
many pounds of seed cotton for its
Equivalent in yarn. It will be ne
cessary in order to keep the machin
ery running from 1st of Jauuary to
the 1st of Septctnbei, to secure 115200
Iba seed cotton, equal to 238, four
hundred pound bales. By buying up
that amount it would cost about
$11,500; or the farmers ol the county
might take that amount in stock, and
I ay it in seed cotton to be delivered
at. mill when wa nted, the teed to be
as agreed on.
You will see by my statements
that it requires a capital of from
$30,000 to 20,000 to put into suc
cessful operation the above machines.
.Say wc make the capital 820,000
in shines of-dollars each,
will be-shares, 25 per cent.,
paid on subscription, and the
balance on installments as required.
It i- doubtful if over 75 per cent, of
tiic amount of stock would be required
unless the stock holders should add
to their manufacturing operations.
Tho only difficulty 1 sec is on
scouring a sufficiency of seed cotton
to run it eight months, and this can be
obviated. I have been informed tint
thuro is an improved machine over
tho Clement's in being able by so mo
slight change, which might be made,
to .-pin yarn from ginned cotton
shpuld it be impractical to run them
with .seed cotton all the year round.
In our estimate wc have put seed
cotton at about three dollars and
tw.mty-iivo cents per hundred, and
yarn at 20 cents per lb by tho bale,
it itctnils at 25 cents per lb.
Now would it not bo better for the J
fanner to put bis cotton into yarn,
thereby saving giuuiug, packing,)
bagging and ties, and lastly though
not the least, deep sampling
and loss in weight; as fanners we.all
know that there is but little profit in
making cotton at 0 and 10 eeuts. lie |
must bo a shrewd oeononiical farmer |
who can mako mqney planting cotton,
at present prices. To be a prosperous
and independent people, wo must
manufacture to a great extent our
own cotton.
It only wants a beginning under
prudent and intelligent management
to build up a tnanufactuiug interest
in our county, and throughout the
?Stale. I do hope the people of
Orangoburg will at ouce take into
their serious consideration the impo r
tance of adopting measures that will
lead to the establishment ot a manu
factory that will be ready to bo put
in operation by the 1st of Septem bcr
The report, after some discussion,
was adopted, and on motion of Dr.
W. S. Barton a committee of live, of
whom the President should In; one
was appointed by the chair, whose
duty it should he to prepare the books j
and take the names of subscribers to i
to the stock. The following gentle-I
in en constitute the committee!: Dr
\V. P, Barton, Harpin Riggs, Win.
Mackcy, J. L. Rtoorcr, and M. J.
Kol ler.
The Society then adjourned to the
dining room to practically discuss the j
prepnred products of the iarin in
which every member acquitted him
self creditably and to his own entire
satisfaction, The President's barrel
of winehad leaked out.
"Rooted in Love."
A healthy and vigorous plant is
half underground. For every visible
branch there is a root out of sight
buried in the soil. Nay, growth be
gins at the. root. It gathers and
sends up the sap that makes new
w<v>?.1;*?nd <b?ln.j?n hlosspma and fruits.
Hence, if a plant 13 not well rooted,
it will have a feeble, sickly growth,
or die. The soil then must be deep
If a tree is planted on a rock, or in a
gravel bank, it may have sunshine
and rain and dew upon its branches
it may be cultivated with the utmost
care, yet its leaves will soon wither
and fall. Move it to a bed of loam,
and cut off the dying lop, the root in
its new home will start up vigorous
shoots, and soon rebuild the tree and
cover it with foclage again.
We seo then why the apost-c would
root the believer in 1 ovo. lie want-;
him to grow, to adorn the gospel by
his Christiau graces, and to bring
forth much truit. To this end he
must have a hidden life as well as one
that is outward ami visible. lie must
linve a deep personal experience of
the love of God. He must sontl the
libers of his sou! out into the warm
and mellow soil. He must grow
there as thoroot'et* grow. His closet
studies, meditations and prayers, will
jnake him ''a tree of righteousness."
There is a piety, so-called, that is
like a Christmas tree. It is all for
show. It is conspicuously active or
intensely orthodox. Tt endures for a
time, as the rootless evergreen (hie.-.
But when temptation or persecution
comes, it droops and dies. This piety
of imitation or of form knows nothing
of love. It has /.etil, but no charily.
It understands proselytism, but not
eouvcrsion. It labors to build up a
sect jr a particular Church, but no!
to save or sanctify '.he souls of men.
It is worse than a failure. It is a
terrible and most injurious fraud.
And yet some really amiable people
have no idea of a religion more, radi
cal?better rooted than this. They
believe that they ought to do some
thing for Christ, to secure some pre
paration for death. They join the
Church, go through tho forms, try te
force themselves to take an interest
in various kinds of Christian work.
Yet they live like parrots or monk
eys, saying 'what they do not really
feel, doing because others do, or they
think they must in order to be*con
sis tent. They know nothing of the
warm, living, constraining impulses
of love; nothing of that maty r spirit
which counts the reproach of Christ
its greatest riches; which rejoices in.
persecution for Jesus' sake. The
Church is full of this rootless piety,
this Christianity that has no hidden
life. And hence, it is that it makes
so little impression upon the world.
What i- needed most of all just now
is hot more Christian activity, but
more Christinn consccraiio?. Not
more work for Christ, but more love
for Christ. It is well to try to bo
useful, but we should first try to be
good , try to grow in grace and in the
knowledge and love ofGod.* When
every plant in the nominal vineyard
of the Lord is truly rooted and
grounded in love, then will that vino
yard1 so put forth its beautiful foel?
ago, and its rip" clusters of fruit, that
the world he attracted; ami when wo
say to men, "(Jomo with us and wo
will do you good, for the Lord hath
spoken good concerning Israel," they
will believe u venkut.
Love to Christ smooths the path of
duty, and wings the loot to travel it;
it is the how which impels the arrow
of obedience; it is the mainspring
moving the wheels of duty; it is the
strong arm tugging the oar of dili
gence. Love is the marrow of the
bones of fidelity, the blood in the
veins oi* piety, the sinew of spiritual
strength, yes, the lifo of sincere devo -
tion. He that hath love can no more
be motionless than the aspen in the
gale, the sere leaf in the hurricane, or
the spray in the tempest. As well
may hearts cease, to beat as love to
labor. Love is instinct with activity,
it can not bo idrc; it is full of energy.
