Farming vs Merch ndisng,
Aidm. Ddiracd by V.R. Rddenbry, of Cairo, Ga. bedo the Interv
.. C.s Growmr' Convention, Mootgomery, Ala,. j'y 26, 05.
Mr. President and Gentlemen of the Con-
The question might reasonably be asked
why should the topic: "Farming versus
Merchandlaing" be selected for discussion
at a Sugar Cane Growers' Convention.
It strikes me that the reason is all asud-
clent when we consider the fact that du-
ring the past century the drift of our popu-
lation from the farm to the city has been
so great that whereas only 15 per cent of
the population residing in the towns and
cities at the beginning of the century, we
now see the urban population Increased to
per cent, of all our people. This &
per cent must be fed and clothed by the
remaining 3 per cent. who are farmers.
Therefore. impelled by an instinctive
: love of the soil, and an earnest desire to
see this Bouthland blossom like a rose. I
feel that It is an opportune time to ap-
peal to our young men, especially, and to
show them that under the New Agricul-
ture which s now taking a firm hold in
the oith, that the door of opportunity is
open to them: and to show to our older
men, whoe abuse of this wonderful oppor-
tunity has almost made farming disrep-
utable, and has been largely responsible
for the drift away from the farm; to show
S these older men the error of their ways.
It is well known that nothing appeals
as strongly to reason as object lessons,
and no argument is so convincing as that
based on actual experience and test; as
for myself I have very little patience with
or consideration for theories that are not
demonstrated by actual test, as case In
point. I received a circular letter some
weeks ago from a party who wanted to
Ssm some watermelon seed. In that circu-
S la he gave detailed Instructions showing
how to grow W00 watermelons weighing
S to 41 pounds each on one acre of land-
this wouM be fully seven 0.00 Ilb. cars of
melons from one acre of land, and in as
much as I have been growing melons for
market for fifteen years and ..ad never
succeeded In securing over one and a half
to two care of good melons from an acre
I was naturally interested, and Immedl-
ately fired a letter back. In this letter I
asked him pointedly the questions: Have
you ever done this thing? If so, how
many times? Well, to be as charitable as
; polible, I received a very evasive reply.
SI know the possibilities of southern soil
Ssder the intensive system is almost un-
Uliited, and I dent say this thing cant be
done, but I am anxious to see the man who
has, not who can. but who has, grown
Pf watermelons weighing 3 to 40 pounds
each from one acre of ground in one sea-
I therefore think that in order to be ful-
ly competent to testify as to the merits of
the .two avocations under consideration.
via: Farming and Merchandising, the wit-
ness should have large experience in both
and be able to furnish facts and figures
based on actual experience.
It is therefore In order tor me to say
that I have been through the mill. I was
raised up behind the counter in a thriving
country town, and at twenty I was man-
ager of a general merchandise store doing
an annual business of over 50.000. I made
annual trips to New York City to buy
goods. and enjoyed the reputation of be-
ing a successful country merchant. I know
all the pleasures and perplexities of such
a business. I know what it means to spend
sleepless nights trying to devise ways and
means to get money from those who owe
*. me in order to pay those whom I owe; I
know the humdrum routine of standing
S behind the counter and playing second fid-
dle to every cranky notion of an exacting
customer; I know what It means to have
a professional lady shopper call and have
you pull down a wagon load of dress
goods and then sweetly walk -out without
buying a yard. and while you feel like
citing a tea penny nall in two, you must

must be done day in and day out, year
after year. This experience applies to the
country merchant inour small towns, and it
is to these stores that our farmer lads
drift by the thousands every year. See
him at the age of 1f to 20 as he leaves
the farm and gets a job in the village
store at, say, ten to twenty dollars per
month. It he goes in for a good time, as
the great majority of them do, it means
that he will ever be an employee at the
beck and call of others-no independence
of character will be built up. no broaden-
ing of the intellect under such environ-
ment, he will never make an impression
worth noticing in the community, and fail-
ure is the final outcome. If on the other
hand, he avoids the pitfalls of sin and a
good time, and devotes himself unspair-
Ingly to the furthering of the interests of
his employer, financial success will crown
his efforts, but frequently at the sacrftce
of health and happiness.
Reverting back to my own experience, I
want to say that owing to the force of
circumstances. I am still engaged, to some
extent, in certain lines of merchandising,
but my greatest profit and pleasure comes
from farming. For fifteen years I have
been actively engaged in farming, and I
now live on the farm. I therefore have
tried both and know whereof I speak when
I say in all honesty and sincerity that un-
der the New Agriculture, the most invit-
Ing, attractive and profitable field for out
young men is the farm.
Now let us take a retrospective view of
agriculture in tethe South. Go ack to ante-
bellum times, if you please, and cast your
eyes over this Southland from Virginia to
Louisiana-where do you find the brains,
the money, the culture, the power? On the
old plantation. Don't tell me that slavery
was the cause: I deny it. Slavery was
merely an incident thereto, but It was an
incident that has retarded for an hundred
years the dawning of the New Agriculture
upon our Southland. Now follow the pros-
perous owners onr f these ie plantations
through four years of an unequal and hope-
less struggle, see them demonstrate to the
world the wonderful power there is in
Southern character, Intellect and blood,
which was inherited from the Invincible
cavalier. No people without mettle of the
finest temper could have held out against
such overwhelming odds and difculties so

fairs of State since the old collonlal days.
as they return to their old plantations,
now laid waste and barren, and bravely
take up the herculean task of reinstating
the former prosperity on the ashes of their
Unfortunately for their immediate suc-
cess, the price of cotton had soared sky-
ward, and our fathers were lured to their
financial destruction by r cent cotton.
All their plans and contracts were made
with the expectation of getting this ex-
treme price for cotton; all other crops were
neglected, and for a number of years our
smoke houses and corn cribs were located
in the West.
Under this one crop system, the inevi-
table happened, the price of cotton con-
tinually dropped, and season after season
these good and brave men struggled
against an ever accumulating debt until at
last many fine old places were sold under
the hammer, and their owners turned from
the farm in discouragement and disgust,
and this movement continued until thou-
sands of these fine old plantations passed
on to the tender care of ne-ro renters,
the owners living intown and .the farms
going to ruin.
But there is a sliver linite even to this
dark cloud, which proves that there is an
overruling and all powerful Hand which
can and does bring good from evil. for we
see these same indomitable Southrons
turning their wonderful anieouurcefl tal-
ents to. the upbuilding of our industrial
South, aided largely by capital furnished
by our Northern friends who had confi-
dence in Southern ability. Witness the
Magnificent growth of our towns and cit-
ies; the hundreds of cotton mills eompet-

and hear the shrill whistle of the locomo-
tive as it echoes from hill to vale. herald-
ing the great industrial progress of the
Now we shift the scene: the old Instinc-
tive love of the soil, which was born and
fostered on the old plantations before the
war, is not dead, but simply slumbered
for a time. During the last decade we see
a most wonderful awakening of interests in
the culture of the soll and with the ush-
ering in of the new century, we witness
the birth of the New Agriculture
in the South. I have no fear for
the future of this New Agriculture
when I consider the fact that its fate is
in the hands of the same people who
built up such a magnificent, though feudal
system, under the old ante-bellum regime
and who when that system was crushed.
so adjusted themselves to the new order of
things, as to astonish the world with their
great industrial development. These same
people are now rapidly working out with
great success the New Agriculture.
What is the New Agriculture?
What does it mean?
First: Diversifcation of crops, and the
upbuilding of the soIL
Second: The summoning of science to
our aid in properly working out the prob-
lems pertaining to the soll.
Third: '-e adoption and use of labor
saving Implements and the application of
true business methods to agriculture.
To the young man of brains, education,
and energy, who will adopt the above
three planks as his platform, the door of
opportunity on the Southern farm is now
wide open. I am sure that there are
thousands of young men today who are
struggling along against competition ip
mercantile lines who if they would only
devote the same time, energy and thought
to farming, would achieve a vastly great-
er financial success, and would at the same
time enjoy the exhilarating feeling of In-
dependence and good health.
There is no avocation that can furnish
more food for the mind than can be found
on the farm. Deep scientific truths lie
buried in the bosom of mother earth wait-
ing to be unburied. The practical prob-
lems pertaining to the soil that can only
be solved by scientific research, are many.
What kind of soil is the best adapted to
a certain kind of crop? How deep should
the land be plowed? How deep and how
often should we cultivate? How to con-
serve moisture? How mush -potash, how
much phosphate, how much nitrogen
should we apply to any given crop? Is It
best to appipy the fertilier all before
planting, or at various, times whiln the
plant is growing? How to omnmk1t .t1aect
pests? How to formulate rations s.'-cat-
tle and other stock so as to get .e Preop-
er proportion of protein ad -ca"ib yites
for the best result? How to .redden the
blush of the peach and sweeten the fla-
vor of the strawberry? How to bioed up
our seed In order that we may get- rge
crops? How to extract the pure nectar
from the sugar cane and eliminate the
impurities? These are only a few of the
thousands of unsettled problems that con-
front our agriculturists and no man with
Intellect need complain of a dull time on
the farm if he will only use his head.
But will it pay? That is the question
that is of paramount Importance when
you bring the matter down to its last
analysis. Whenever our young men see
money in farming. I think they will be
falling over one another to get Into it.
The most convincing argument that
can be adduced to show that there is profit

THE WEEKLY INDUSTRIAL RECORD.
nile the agitation Is going on in regard
to methods of inducing immigrants to the
United Staetes to locate in the Southern
States, it should be remembered that there
is a limit beyond which we cannot go
without danger of doing lasting injury to
our section. Only a small per centage of
those who land in New York and other
ports on the Immegration vessels are at all
desirable for associates or citizens. The
immegration laws of the United States
are still so lax that we find officers of that
bureau protesting against them and urg-
ing greater stringency in order that the
United States may not be made the dump-
ing ground for criminals and paupers of
the old world.
Among the very interesting and valua-
ble official annual reports just Issued is
that of the Commissioner-General of Im-
megration for the fiscal year ending June
30.104. In this voluminous report is a de-
tailed statement of Commissioner Will-
iams, in charge of the Ellis Island immi-
gration station. He very boldly points
out a number of the flagrant abuses of
our laws in this respect, and calls atten-
tion to classesof undesirable Immigration
showing how the contractors and commis-
sion men are profiting by an industry
which is a positive menace to American
institutions. Commissioner Williams says:
"Some of the causes of undesirable im-
migration le on the surface. One of them
Is the continued violation of section 4 of
the act of March 3. 1901, which prohibits
transportation companies directly or indi-
rectly to encourage immigration except
by ordinary commercial letters or oral
representations 'stating the sailings of
their vessels and the terms and facilities
for transportation therein.' The fact Is
that certain portions of Europe are being
scoured for immigrants by persons who
receive commissions upon all tickets sold
through their efforts. Whoever drafted
this section had a very clear conception
of one of the worst evils incident to pres-
ent immigration, namely, the artificial
stimulation thereof by interests operating
In disregard of the welfare and even the
laws of the United States. This important
section should be amplified and re-enacted
with such severe penalties for Its violation
as will make it susceptible of ready en-
"Another reason why so many undesir-
able emigrants are coming here is that a
considerable portion are of thel assisted
class. An a rule. that man will be the bet-
ter Immigrant who comes of his Inlative
and with his own money.
"A very large percentage of the present
Immigration is of the assisted class. I
believe that assisted Immigration should
be prohibited, subject to reasonable ex-
ceptions in cases of very close and other-
wise eligible relatives, such as fathers,
mothers, children, brothers and sisters of

ded here a sufclent length of time.

whose physical condition is poor. The law
now excludes idiots, Insane persons, epi-
leptics and those suffering from a loath-
some or dangerous contagious disease. To
exclude aliens suffering from other phys-
ical or mental ailments It Is generally nee-
pary to show that they are likely to bee-
comepublic charges, and yet it is obviously
impossible to exclude on this ground all
persona whose physical condition is poor.
I think that in all instances in which the
Unltd States marine-hospital surgeons
who conduct the medical examinations at
the immnirant stations certify in writing
that the physical condition of an emigrant,
depending for support upon his own phys-
ical exertions. is below a certain standard

eastern Europe. composed of a father.
mother and six children, all under 10 years
of age, with hardly any money, and bound
for the tenement district of New York
City, was recently asked at Ellis Island
how he intended to provide a competent
subsistence for his family If allowed to
land. He answered: 'What do I care for
a big house if I can get one room to sleep
In. That is all we want; that is the way
we did in Russia.'
"This particular family was excluded.
But we are receiving many other families
of a similar character bound for the tene-

tspirations as narrow as those above de-
scribed, whom It is not possible to exclude
under existing law; for it does not nec-

become public charges from the fact that
they will go to an overcrowded tenement
district and occupy inadequate quarters.
It is full time, however, for us to appre-

of their prospective future, and that a

with foreign elements, representing often
the poorest classes in their own homes and
differing in blood and customs from those

country with a population of 80,000,000 to
increase deliberately the difficulty of solv-

problems, and to add to the burdens of its
educational and charitable Institutions by
continuing to admit elements of the char-

BAGDAD'S SAWMILL INDUSTRY 60
YEARS AGO AND TODAY.
Fifty years ago the firm of E. E. Simp-
son & Co., located at Bagdad, successors
largest, AYERS 7t etaoin etaoln aoinlnn
to Forsyth & Simpson, was one of the
sawmill and planingmll firms in the South.
The members of the firm were E. E.
Simpson, Alien Simpson, Benjamin Over-
man. Benjamin W. Thompson, James
Creary and R. M. Bushnell. They owned
their labor and each member was assigned
to his department of the business.
The logs were cut and put into the water
to await a freshet to flfloat them to within
reach of the mill, requiring from six to
twelve months from the cutting of the
logs in the woods to the sawing of them in
The mill was an upright gang sawmill,
with a capacity of about twenty thousand
feet- per day. The company cut almost ex-
cluively flooring, ceiling and weather-
boards, which were stacked for six months
and then planed and shipped by vessels to
New Orleans and Texas.
The company owned their lumber yard
in New Orleans, which was managed by
E. W. Dorr, father of Hawks and J. W.
Dorr, of Pensacola.
There were then located on the several
creeks emptying Into the Blackwater riv-
er a. number of small, upright water saw-
milbk making from one to one and a half
thousand feet each per day, which was

times that of the old E. E. Simpson & Co.
plant of fifty years ago.
They have a railroad running Into the
same sections then logged by E. E. Simp-
son & Co., and expect soon to reach out
into vast tracts of Umber that are al-
most virgin forests. Their log train can
leave the mills in the morning and re-
turn in the evening with a thousand logs.
The logs can be cut In the woods, hauled
to the mills, lumber cut. dried, dressed
and delivered In Cncinenati or Chicago in-
side of ten days.
Fifty years ago It took E. T. Simpson
& Co., twelve to eighteeen months to cut.

issue bonds for the construction work in-

McMILLAN BROS. COPPER WORKS
The Savannah Morning News of Wednes-
day, has the following to say which will
no doubt be of interest to our many read-
During the greater part of yesterday two
streams of water were played on the still
smouldering embers .of the McMillan Bros.
copper works, which were destroyed by
fire Monday night, and hundreds of morbid
spectators gathered to witness the scene of
the tragedy the night before when father
anu son were burned to death before they
could make their exit from the burning
The bodies of Mr. Gardner and his son,
the two men who were burned, were sent
to the family at Pooler, where they were
taken charge of for interment near Bloom-
After Investigating yesterday, Mr. Mc-
Mlllan placed the loss between $10,000 and
$12,000 as stated in the News yesterday.
He was more deeply disturbed over the
tragic end of such a faithful employee as
Mr. Gardner, and also his son. During his
twenty-five years connection with the
copper maunfacturing enterprises of Mr.
McMillan, Mr. Gardner had been a most
faithful and efficient workman, and guar-
ded his employer's interests as his own.
The theory advanced by the Morning
News, that both father and son were awak-
ened by the flames, and made an effort
to effect their escape, is further borne
out by the statement of a negro driver
named Best, employed by Mr. John Sulli-
van, who stated that he was passing the
building as the flames were spreading to
the roof. Best said he distinctly heard
some one shout: "Save yourself, I can do
.le beds which the two men occupied
were arranged in the northwest corner of
the building, directly on Perry lane and
Price street, and the fact that one body
was found ten feet away near the Perry
lane wall, as though an attempt had been
made to get out of one of the three win-
dows opening on the lane, and the other
fifteen feet away in a direction from the
cots. which indicated that an effort had
been made to reach the front door front-
ing on Liberty street, bears out the theory
that both men discovered their predica-
ment in time to make an effort to escape.
Most of the finished material was in the
yard east of the building which was
burned, and very little damage was done
to this. During the early hours of yester-
day morning the scene of the fire of the
night before was unusual. Long icicles
hung from the charred parts of the frame
still left standing, and all along the street
boys were skating on the ice which had
formed in the water wasted in the gutters.
The Record has been advised that the
fire has in no way caused any delay in the
manufacture or delivery of stills and that
all orders will have the same prompt and

Dear Sirs:-Are you drinking a carbona-
ted beverage? If so, drink the best. You
can get it from the Live Oak Bottling
Works, R. H. Holmes, proprietor. Mr.
Holmes has been owner and proprietor of
Helena, Ga., Bottling Works for the past
twelves years, and was the original owner
of the Valdosta, Ga., Bottling Works, now
owned by Holmes & Barber.
We are now putting in a new Crown
Bottling Machine and have ordered a New
Continuing Carbonator. The power for run-
ning the machinery will be furnished by an
electric motor. We are getting in a car
load of new Crown bottles and new ship-
ping and city delivery crates.
Our Ginger Ale is pleasing to the eye as
well as to the taste, and gives better sat-
isfaction than that shipped from a dis-
tance. We also make all popular brands
of Carbonated Drinks, and make them
right. Every ingredient and every bottle
made undergoes a strict inspection, and if
not up to the standard--ust right-it does
not go out. We pride ourselves upon the
care and attention given to the manufac-
ture of our goods, and will not knowingly
substitute an inferior Ingredient or shirk
the slightest detail of our work.
Our plant is modern and up-to-date; our
goods are made from pure Artesian Dis-
tilled Water, every gallon used.
If you are not selling these goods, and
want to increase your trade, give us your
order at once.

WHAT BUSINESS MEN SAY OF LAST
WEEK'S ISSUE OF THE RECORD.
Editor Industrial Record. Dear Sir :- I
desire to favorably mention the last issue
of the Industrial Record. I was greatly
impressed with the Tampa article. I
knew that our South Florida Metropolis
was a progressive, hustllag city, but I had
not before comprehended fully how great
she really is, and the wonderful prospects
ahead for her. I commend you in bring-
ing forward Florida her marvelous re-
sources and the people who are developing
her. I hope you can keep up the good
licks. I would like to see the great devel-
opments of the East Coast properly shown
up. Show what it was before Mr. Flagler
and Mr. Parrott came to it. what it is now
and what it bids fair to be. I would like
to see an issue devoted to the Phosphate
industry and one to the long cotton indus-
try, etc. Let the good work go on. g
H. A. McEachern. t

ance." Mr. Clark,

ADDRESS OF PRESIDENT.
The following was the address of Presi-
dent S. H. Galtsul, at the meeting of the
Southeastern Stockgrowers', Association,
Tampa, Fla., Feby. 1, 1905:
"To the Members and Friends of the
Southeastern Stoctgrowers' Association.-
it seems meet at thus tune to make a full
declaration of the aims and objects of our
% e would be fully understood and have
our purposes known to all men-and it
seems tnat some people think our object
as to accomplish one hmng and others tnmk
we have a diterent object in view 'We
nope alter this meeting there will be no
such diversity of opinion, but that we ma)
be known all over the state as just wnati
we are-that is, the Soutneastern Stock-
growers' Association. Some seem to think
we are looking after the interests of cat-
tle alone, and others seem to think
that we are thinking of purebred cattle
only, and others, that we are working in
the interest of the beef breeds of cattle.
and still some few seem to think that we
are worKing for the advancement of one or
Lue beet breeds only. There are others
that seem to be of the opinion that we
are not thinking of stock of any kind,
particularly, but that the sole object ot
this association is to run down and pun-
ish whoever injures or maims an animal,
or does any act that is in any way detri-
mental to what we think is of interest
to stockraising. It is a pleasure to me to
have this opportunity to show that a great
many of these ideas are erroneous.
First and foremost, this is just what our
name purports it to be, that is, a stock-
growers' association. We desire to aid in
the upbuilding of all kinds of stock. We
are paying more attention to beef cattle
just now than other stock, because it is
the most important branch of the industry
at present. More people are interested in
this class of stock, and at present this
class of stock is of more value to the State
than any other, but when I say beef cattle,
I would not have you think we mean the
pure bred cattle only, for we are vitally
Interested In the native cattle.
"A great question now facing us is: What
are we going to do with our native steers
We feel that the day of his usefulness is
nearly past. We know that he has been
a great factor in the upbuilding of the
State, that he has not only furnished a
good living for a great many of our people,
but he has brought wealth and affluence
to many. We know that a great many
boys and girls have been educated from
the proceeds arising from the sale of the
native, that he has built and furnished
many comfortable homes, and there Is
within us a tender feeling for him. Call it
sentiment if you will. We cannot help
but praise the bridge that allows us to
safely cross a stream, but now we feel that
the time has come when we must begin to
prepare to say goodbye to this old friend,
his day of extermination is dawning, and
It would be folly for us to close our eyes
tothi s fact, and wait for the full noonday
of his passage before we fully realize that
he must go, and it behooves us, to begin
to prepare for his successor.
"We have made a free Cuba. and we
are proud of the part we played in help-
ing this people to freedom, but the day we
made Cuba free, was also the day that
rung the death knell of the Florida na-
tive steer. All of the territory covered by
this association has been helping to fur-
nish Cuba beef, but Cuba will soon be
producing her own beef, then the question
to be answered is, what are we going to
do with our native cattle? The very fact
hat the Northern part of our territory-
Georgia and Alabama-has been sending
native cattle to Cuba, should tell the Flor-
da grower plainly that there is no market
north of us that will take our native steer.
They have not taken the Georgia and Al-
abama native, and it would surely cost
Very much more in freight charges, to get
>ur steer up North. I can see no promise
if an outlet north of us that would pay
'or the native steer. We might be able
o ship hides, but not that kind of beef up
"I can see but one solution. We must
nake a better steer, this I am sure we
an do, but it means better blood, and not
o many cattle on the range. We must
save better blood to give more breadth to
he frame work, and less cattle on the
ange, so that our steers will not

profit, as the northern markets now
pay good prices for good cattle, but would
not have our natives as a gift. I have
seen a farmer in Kentucky sell one hun-
dred steers at $1U0 per head. I have seen
bunches of cattle that averaged AUl
pounds per head, gross weight, sell for
seven cents per pound, making them bring
$112 per head. This one steer would do
well where you now keep ten or twelve
head of natives. I think it was Mr. Light-
sey that said he counted ten acres to keep
a steer. Don't you believe one hundred
acres would keep a much better steer-
today a 1400 pound steer, ready for market,
would sell for five cents per pound, mak-
ing $i0.00. I am sure a good living could
be found for this one steer where you now
Keep enough steers to bring $t0.00. We are
now trying to get ready to make a better
steer, because we see the day approach-
ing when we must have better cattle, if
we would have any cattle to market at all.
This same line of thought will apply to
our hogs and our sheep, the native hog
does not produce the ham that the present
day market demands, and we must get in
position to have the thing to sel, that some
other people wants to buy. When we pro-
duce a fitty-pound lamb four months old,
and have him fat, the same people that
pay 10 a head for this fat lamb now, will
gladly take ours, but we must make lambs
they want, and not the lamb we think
they ought to be satisfied with. We also
feel a deep interest in the milk breeds
of cattle, as that is pre-eminently the
family cow, and a good cow is or should
be, a part of every home, and anything
that becomes a part of our home is of
vital importance to us. We try to keep in
touch with people that are handling the
dairy breed. Only last week, I had a letter
from a gentleman living in Cocoa, ask-
ing me to tell him where he could get a
pure bred bull of any of the dairy breeds,
and I was glad that I could tell him where
we could get a pure bred Guernsey. It,
makes me feel good when I am asked to
give aid in getting pure bred sires, let it
be of cattle, hogs, sheep or goats, for 1
believe pure bred sires will prove the
road that leads to success.
"We are also interested in corn, cowpeas,
velvet beans, Bermuda grass, blanket
grass, crab grass, Alfalfa, beggar weed,
In fact, all grains and grasses that prom-
Ise to aid us in the making of the better
steer, in fact we are more deeply Interested
in feed products than we are in good
blood, as no kind of a steer can be made
without feed, neither pure bred nor scrub
-but given the feed, either grasses or
grains, and with good blood the problem
is easily solved, and the making of better
grasses and more to the acre is of great
consequence to us as an association for
we cannot be a Stockgrowers' Association
without the things that are essential to
the growth and development of stock.
"The detection and punishment of those
who steal cattle or hogs, or maim or kill
our stock, or cut our fences, is only an
incidental, but truly a part of the business
of our Association, as protecting the stock.
protecting anything that aids in the devel-
opment or the upbuilding of the live stock
industry, from the depredations of the mis-
guided or the evilminded is of as much
importance as the introduction of good
blood, or the production of better grasses.
We have had some work to do In thhi line
but we hope to have but little of this kind
of work, as we believe, there is not a
man in the State but will soon realize that
he makes a mistake, when he cuts a fence,
or hurts a pure bred bull. We have no
feeling of ill will towards these misguided
persons, and no desire to punish them.
but what we do in this line, will simply be
to teach them that they had better de-
sist, and to protect the live stock industry.
but whenever we have any work of this
kind to do, we propose to work at it Just
as persistently and vigorously as we do
the introduction of better blood. or the
growing of more and better grasses.
"We have no desire to hurt or Injure
any one, but we have organized for the
good of the live stock industry, and if
this is made a part of our work, we pro-
pose to do this. as well as other things
pertaining to the good of the industry-
to the best of our ability."

tramp steamers, so that the potash and
pyrites from aboard could be discharged
into the building.
Jacksonville has enjoyed for years a
coastwise trade with sailing boats and
steamers, but it was not until the last
year that she knew what it was to have
large tramp steamers arrive with cargoes
murect trom foreign ports. No little curios-
,ty and interest was manifested by our
people when tne mammoth Jngush turret
steamer Nordsap arrived at tnis port load-
ed with potash direct from Hamburg. This
vessel was three hundred and seventy teeL
long, forty-eight feet beam, and when
uacked into tne slip at the E. O. Painter
company's old dock her bow projected
eventy feet into the river. The slip re-
terred to was built large enough to ac-
commodate two of the largest schooners
that come to this port. We mention this
to show how lhy prepared the docKs of
Jacksonville were for a vessel of this size.
ihe new warehouse built m South Jacia-
sonville can accommodate the largest ves-
Sel that can come up the river, so that
ner cargo can be discharged with dis-
patch, being the only place in the port of
Jacksonville where a tramp steamer ot
-wenty feet draught can tie up and dis-
charge without trespassing or overlapping
on some other dock property.
The development of this fertilizer busi-
ness has been helpful, not only to the
growers of Florida and remunerative to
the stockholders, but also to Jacksonville,
for every improvement which has been
made has meant more business for this
port, and consequently more money scat-
tered among the working people. With a
pay roll of over a thousand dollars a week,
every line of business must be benefitted.
To grasp the real significance of the
growth of this business, one has but to
imagine a small building with a total busi-
ness amounting to 37,1000 in one year, and
then look at the present large and com-
modious warehouses and factory buildings,
full to overflowing with materials of all
kinds, and to know that the sales this
year will amount to nearly $600,000.
ATLANTIC NATIONAL ELECTS OFFI-
At the last meeting of the board of direc-
tors of the Atlantic National Bank of Jack-
sonville, the following officers were elected
to serve during the ensuing year:
Edward W. Lane, president.
Fred W. Hoyt, vice-president.
Thomas P. Denham, cashier.
Delmer D. Upchurch, assistant cashier.
John Denham Bird, assistant cashier.
At the stockholder's meeting held on Jan-
uary 10 all of the old directors were re-
elected, with the following additions:
D. M. Flynn, vice-president of the West
Flynn & Harris Company, naval stores
factors of this city.

prosperous field, and having on its board

In all sections of the state and a number
of the financial kings of Georgia.
From the first it has assumed a field of
great activity and progress, and has won
the confidence of the people of Jackson-
ville, Fla., and all bankers In the country.
It has a capital stock of $360,000, all paid in, i
and, as an evidence of its prosperity, its
deposits on January 11 aggregated $2,540,-
THE SAVANNAH BOARD OF TRADE
ADOPTS NEW RULES. t
Superintendent C. W. Saussey is sending
>ut the following to the producers and fac-
ors of naval stores:
"Please note that the Board of Trade
has adopted a new rule regarding the in-
pection of rosin for false or mixed pack-
ng. Heretofore inspectors have been re- d
luired to examine on bottom, head or side 1
f barrel at least 6 per cent of every mark r
f rosin grading K or better quality. Un- e
ler the new rule, inspectors are now re- g
uired to sample 5 per cent. of every mark A
if all grades of rosin, and should false or t
nixed packing be discovered inspectors
nust examine the entire lot, the expenses a
of said examination to be paid by the sel-
There have been so many complaints
within the last few months regarding false
or mixed packing of common rosins that
t-e Board of Trade has passed the above
rule requiring that all grades of rosin be
now examined by the inspector for false or
mixed packing. This being the case, it is
of great importance that you see that no
false or mixed packing is done on any
grades of rosin. If you have any dross ros-
in, it would be best to ship same in sepa-
rate barrels and not use same to pack up
barrels of other grades of rosin. All cotton
batting, trash and dirt or other foreign
matter should be carefully kept out of the
rosin, as barrels containing same will also
be classed as false packed."
CAPITAL STOCK INCREASED.
On account of the steady increase of the
deposits and general business of the Com-
mercial Bank of this city, the stock hol-
ders have authorized the issue of five
hundred new shares of stock, par value of
one hundred dollars each, thus dubhng the
capital stock from fifty thousand dollars to
one hundred thousand dollars. This addi-
tional stock has already been subscribed
and paid in.
The Commercial Bank is considered one
of the best managed Institutions of Its
kind in the State. They also have branch-
es in Ocala and Lake City, two of Flor-
ida's most progressive and up-to-date in-
terior towns. This bank is under the able
management of Mr. H. Robinson and Mr.
H. Gallard, two men who thoroughly un-
derstand every department of the banking
business, most conservative in all their
dealings and courteous to all having busi-
ness with them.
BIG PEONAGE CASES MAY BE TRIED
It is possible that the big peonage cases,
in which Thomas McClelland and other
prominent Georgians have been made de-
fendants, will come to trial during the
March term of the United States District
and Circuit Courts In Savannah. All that
is holding them back is the decision of
the United States Supreme Court on the
Acting United States District Attorney
Alexander Akerman, of Georgia, was in
Savannah yesterdayy on legal business, hav-
ing gone there to look after the interests
of his clyant in the case of the Pensa-
cola Lumber Company against Bailey.
A partial hearing of the case was heard
before Special Master W P. Hardee.
The latter hearing will be concluded at a
later date. After the legal business had
been disposed of Mr. Akerman, in speak-
ing of the peonage cases, said :
"Ap has beep published heretofore in
the Savannah' Morning News, the Clyatt
case has been argued before the Supreme
handed down almost any day. If they
sustain the conviction of Clyatt, the
points raised being similar to those in the
cases against Crawley, McClellan et al.
I shall press my cases for trial at the com-
ing term of the court here .
"Until the decision of the Supreme Court
has been received, however, no action will
be taken in these pending cases. Of course
I am anxious that the questions be decided.
If the decision is against us, it will prob-
ably mean that the cases will be dropped.
If for us, we shall at once go to trial.
In either event. I hope to see the cases
soon disposed of."
It will be remembered that demurrers
were filed in the big peonage cases heard
in Savannah by Mr. W M Toomer, counsel
for the defense. The jurisdiction of the
United States was questioned. Judge Em-
ory Speer overruled the demurrer and or-
lered the defendants to trial. Before the
case went to the Supreme Court and other
lases were held up pending a decision of
In case McClellan, Crawley and others
ire convicted, another appeal is probable.

The Wire Virgin Gum Co.,
Is now ready to give you all the information you may want concerning the
way we,are now gathering virgin gum from high boxes. By the use of a
tin Ap put up cloe to the chipping and so arranged to cause the gum to
strike wire and follow same down to the box, not striking the face of the
tree. Wire is fastened on by two small nails, one just above the lip and
the other at upper edge of the oldbox, and stretched tight so as to keep
gum from dripping off, thereby making virgin gum and more of it. There
are many benefits and big pay where parties can get a good many high boxes.

COTTON REPORTS TWICE A MONTH.
The major portion of the Senate debate
In connection with the agricultural appro-
priation bill was based on an amendment
suggested by Mr. Bacon providing for semi-
monthly reports on the condition of the
cotton crop, which was amended so as to
cover the last five months of the year and
Mr. Bacon, in offering his amendment,
said that no provision could be of so much
importance to the cotton producers as this
one. He traced the failure of the growers
season's crop to the infrequency of the
official reports. The loss in one month on
this account had not been less than $40,-
000,0. He also urged that the secretary
should publish a synopsis of the infor-
mation on which his estimate is based, as
well as the estimate itself.
Mr. Proctor presented a letter from the
chief statistician of the Agricultural De-
partment saying that the adoption of the
Bacon cotton amendment would involve
an additional expenditure of 336,000 per

which was participated in by Messrs. Clay,

Bailey thought if the increase could be
made for the months of August, Septem-
ber, October and November. It would an-

A FOREST RESERVE FOR THE SOUTH-
In the establishment of some of its wes-
tern forest reserves the federal govern-
ment had to contend with a hostile local
sentiment, due to misunderstanding large-
ly and yet none the less violent. In marked
contrast is the history thus far of the ef-
forts to establish a forest reserve in the
southern Appalachian mountains. Here it
is local sentiment which is taking the initi-
ative and the legislative branch of the
federal government which is digging its
heels into the earth and balking the prog-
ress of the movement.
All the beneficent results which are claim-
ed for forestry reserves anywhere can be
claimed for the proposed Appalachian re-
serve, and they are benests which a large
population already exists to enjoy not
prospective benefits which will some time
accrue to the future inhabitants of what
is now sparcely settled country. If the
federal government can practice refores-
tation and irrigation jointly, in an effort
to reclaim the western alkali deserts
and make them habitable, it can as well
do something in the east to preserve exist-
ing forest cover on the watersheds of riv-
ers which flow to every point of the com-
pass and furnish power, river transporta-
tion and water for man and beast and va-
ried agricultural anu manufacturing pur-
poses over a wide portion of the southeast
where aridity now holds sway.
It may be the fact that forest reserves
were not altogether appreciated in some
parts of the west in itself marked the
need of their establishment and that fed-
eral efforts should be exerted chiefly in
behalf of those states that are at least able
or at least willing to do what is needful
for themselves. Certain it is that fores-
tation in the older states has been done
under state supervision. In the Appalach-
ian territory, however, state supervision
is not adequate to the work that needs to
be done. The boundaries of five different
states meander through this great water-
shed, and even if effective joint action be-
tween these states were practicable their
efforts would be for the benefit of all the
other southeastern states, all more or less
contiguous to its flow-off.
The legislatures of all these states have
passed bills ceding jurisdiction to the Uni-
ted States for the control of a forest re-
serve; and it only remains for congress to
act. Probably in its ponderous consider-
ation of other questions which are consid-
ered of wider importance there is little
prospect of action at this session; but the
next session should see such a focusing
of sentiment on the subject as shall com-
GLUE AND GLUE TESTING.
(A paper read by H. J. Watson before
the Nottingham section of the Society of
Originally it was intended that these
notes should deal exclusively with the
analysis of glue, but in view of the many
sources from which glue is obtained, and
the different methods employed in treat-
ing the raw material, it has been thought
essential to the proper grouping of the
experimental results to classify the sam-
ples, in the first place to the sources- of
material, and in the second, to their order
of derivation. Upon the quality of glue
desired depends the material and process
a manufacturer will adopt. In the first
place under glues, we have skin, bone and
fish glues, and again under gelatins, skin,
bone and fish gelatin, these being sub-
divided according to method of treatment
and order of derivation. In the first group
under the subdivision, I place what 1 term
osseine glues, being those glues which are
produced by the reduction, fully or par-
tial, of the material to a form of osseine.
The term is one well known in the trade.
there being in existence some factories
wholly engaged in its production. From
osseine thus prepared, high-class colourless
glues and gelatines are manufactured. In
the production of this class of glues and
gelatines the preparation of the material
has been carried to the highest pitch of
perfection known, and the extractive pe-
riod under heat has been reduced to the
shortest possible, probably not more than
two hours. We may assume, for all practi-
cal purposes, that this is an ideal standard.
lIne samples, however, produced from one
osseine material may represent 13 or 14
grades, all of successively lower qualities
and representing in each case successive
stages of extraction, each of increasing du-
ration under heat. With regard to skin
glues under this group there is a deviation
in grades according to the needs of the
factory. In any case the first extractive
quality will not amount to more than 25
to 30 per cent. of the total product.
In the second group I designate original
glues in that they are composed of 60 per
cent. of the material contents of gelatine.
and contain the total practicable extrac-
tive value of the material. Skin and bone
glues come under this group. In the third
group I designate reinforced glues, sad
include In this class those samples which
are prepared from the lower grades of the
osseine gluesa blended with a certain pro-
portion of original extractive gelatin from
lower classes of material. In the fourth
group I designate average glues. I place
those samples which are prepared on a
continuous system in which the latter ex-
traction results are passed into fresh ma-
terial, and which therefore, contains a re-
suit from a number of extractions o fthe
same materials in different stages of ex-
haustion. In the fifth group I place suc-
cessive ,glues, inclusive of those glues
although produced on a system similar to
the third group, are reinforced from .the
same class of material. This grouping does
not by any means exhaust the variations
in these products. Under each group head-
ing there will be found a number of minor
modifications due to special blends of ma-
terials operated upon, the particular mar-
ket catered for, and also to some extent
upon the individual caprice and Inherited
traditions of a manufacturer.
Analysis. Practically the valuation of
glue by analysis to the manufacturer is
one thing and to the consumer quite anoth-
er. It must be borne in mind that it is to
the consumer that the ultimate decision is
valuable, and the chemical analysis not
giving him any appreciable data of service.
reliance is placed almost wholly on one or
more of the many physical tests invented.
I may here say that the four principal
points of value to the consumer are: (1)
adhesiveness; (2) strength or cohesion; (3)
rate of setting; (4) carrying power or medi-
um absorption. Adhesiveness is best shown
by viscosity; strength or cohesion, by con-
cistency jelly test; rate of setting, time
taken to congeal. Of course it is Impossi-
ble to generalize in this matter, as the
special value to one consumer is quite a
different physical property to another. As
an example of what is required by a con-
sumer, one of our customers specifies that
t.e glue shall be submitted to the follow-
ing tests:-(1) Percentage of. water in orig-
inal glue at 110 to 1U per cent. C.; (2)
percentage of ash and quality; (3) acidity
(total and volatile); (4) capacity for drying;
(5) percentage of foreign matters not glue;
(6) viscosity, along with the physical test
of smell of glue size with water absorp-
