THE ENTERPRISE. ■r ■ r ~ ' flplll fotkjmikd miT rauMT ■v r» nrnnin nwtiN co. fWllawiM M.C MmldltaMOlatl WUttaautoa. M.C. u |KO*ICIU> Mall ttottrr ——— .. - .. - FRIDIY SEPTEMBER 16.1906. Fanners Fix Price on Cotton. The farmers met in Asheville last week to fix the minimum price on cotton, agreeing on eleven cents as the price. It was arbitrarily fixed at eleven cents while at the voting contest many votes were cast for twelve. The price began to decline immediately, the buyers thinking and knowing much cotton will have to be sold at any price offered and they will wait' to pay only eleven cents for when those who can hold for a higher price have agreed to and. will put it on the market at eleven cents. The law of supply and demand cannot be regulated arbitrarily for cotton permaneutly any more than for any other article and it seems a waste ot time to attempt any such thing. Thev arbitrarily fix the price of cotton and complain at the Standard Oil Company for doing the same thing. We should I* glad for farmers to get a good price as any body, but, we do not think the farmer can arbitrarily fix the price of cotton. They may temporarily affect the market if they made every body sell at the price fixed but it would only b» temporary for the natural laws ol supply and demand will supercede any artificial regulation. High price will cause less of it to be used somethiug else cheaper will be substituted and besides those not in the ring would grow cotton and sell it at a lower price than agreed on. Uki Fillig Money Finding health is like finding money—so think those who are sick. When you have a cough, cold, sore throat, or chest irrita tion, better act promptly like W. C. Barber, of Saudy Level, Va. He says: "1 bad a terrible trouble, cullseil by smoke and cCul dust on my lungs; but, after find ing no relief in other remedie*, 1 was cured by Dr. King's New Discovery for Consumption. Coughs and Colils." Greatest sal or any cough or lung medicine in the world. AtS. K. Bigg's !rup store; 50c and $1.00; guaranteed. Trial bottle free. The Ro,ad to Wealth. Of course North Carolina get* much money from converting it cotton into cheap cloth and its to bacco into cigarettes, smoking am plug, but the profit in this hi* manufacturing is not nearly st great as when the products of th« farm are converted into the small things upon which there is mucl skilled labor. Charlotte has a fac tory that makes six liuudred dozei handkerchiefs out of cotton even day, thus converting a bale of Mecklenburg cotton for which th« 1 fanner receives fifty dollars int handkerchiefs which, it is estirna ted, bring several thousand dollar*. Other cities and towns arc buildin) up small industries. The Gasto nia Gazette notes that Newton ha a successful factory for making pasteboard boxes, the kind that hosiery and other knit goods art packed in. There are a hundred different sorts of small factories that wil pay well and they can be establish ed with small capital. The chiti ! capital necessary is brains an* knowledge of the needs of a pai 1 ticular world. The young mat who knows one thing well and * ; ready to put his life into it nee not wish for capital. It can Ik j had as soon as he demonstrates In ability. In the direction of multi plied small industries lies the road to wealth in North Carolina. The above taken from the News and Observer needs to be read and considered by every citizen interest ed in the upbuildiug of his own community. The necessary means are skill and determination rather than money and the exactly suit able natural conditions. We have insisted that our people were ac f. V . acquainted with only farming and merchandising and it was the doing of one off these two or leave the country. We should have a va riety of industries and let every m— employ his talent as will bring moat pleasure to him and wealth to the community. Williamston has an immediate demand for a coach shop, a factory for overalls and one for knitting. We need a brick kiln and a plain ing mill. Then we should save freight on building material for the giowth of the town. The sav ing of money is as much gain as the making We need electric lights so we can stop payiug tribute to the Standard Oil Co. Tlrere are numbers off enterprises we might name that mean wealth, but the trouble is getting them started. Autumn Dunce. On Tuesday evening from ten until two the society men of; the town gave the first dance of the autumn to the ladies. It was a pleasant occasion with which to begin the season's gaities. The figures of the cotiliion were led by Mr. C. B. H asset I. assisted by Mr. E. H. Hardison. The uiusic, the fair ladies and the attentive beaux nade the event a very pleasant one indeed.

He says: ' While there I ate some fresh meat ind some souce meat it, gave ne cholera morbus in a very severe 1 oral. 1 was never more sick in uy life and sent to the drug store I»r a certain cholera mixture, but he druggist sent me a bottle of .'hamberlain's Colic, and Diar lioea Remedy instead, saying that e had what I sent for, but that his medicine was so much better ic would rather send it to me in lie fix I was in. I took one dose 1 fit and was better in five min tes. The second dose cured me ntirely. Two fellow jurors were til ic ted in the same manner and ne small bottle cured the three of is." For sale oy S.

I tys: "For years, my wife suf •red intensely from dyspepsia, complicated with a torpid liver, until she lost her strength and vigor, and became a mere wreck ot her former self. Then she tried Klectric Bitters, which helped her at ouce, and finally made her en tirely well. She is now strong and healthy." S. R. Biggs, druggist, sells and guarantees them, at 50c a bottle.

At the installation of Dr. Alder man as president of the University of Virginia, Mr. Jefferson Levy, the present owner of Monticello, threw open wide the doors and in vited all to come to the old home of Jefferson. So the old hospital ity still goes on. While Mr. Jefferson lived he en tertained so mnch that at his death be was a poor man and the estate had to be sold It was bought by Mr. Jefferson Levy, a Jew, now worth about fifty million, who keeps it in a fine condition and who now claims it as an ancrestal estate, being related to the Jeffer sons, as he says: The place is the top of a small mountain and hence gets its name ' Monticello" from the Italian word which means "lit tle mountain." We are told that Mr. Jefferson gave it the Italian pronunciation and so we should. On a fourth day of July an elder ly lady, (member of an old Virgin ian family) a New Yorker and I drove out. Winding around and around the mountain, passing or chsrds of Albermarle pippins and occasionally getting peeps of the town below. As we drove up the ringing bell announced our entrance and the were thrown open. Nearby the house we passed a gentleman dressed in a cream broadcloth suit and a dog walking beside him. Upon questioning a boy we found that this was Mr. Levy. We also learned that very seldom were peo pie permitted to enter the home, just on state occasions. So one of our party, the Virgiuiau, took our cards and walked down to see Mr? Levy and beg of him to let us go into the house. When she present ed the cards with our request he said, "you all will not touch any thing ?" "Sir, I am a Virginian," she said, and then bowing low he walked up the path and we all en tered. The plan of the house is the same as in the old colonial days, but all the furnishing.-, are modern with the exception of an old violen stand and the well kuown clock with its key and folding ladder, all of which Jefferson himself made. Mr. Levy is a bachelor and qjjcu pies the old bed-room of Mr Jef ferson. The old roof garden is still there. It was here that Mr. Jefferson sat for hours while the rotunda of the University was being built, and listened to the carjienters hammer ing. "Fear if they nail ? crooked" as he said eveu thoit was two miles off. The burying ground monument is very plain and sjtuple as he had tion is that he is &eauthor of the Declaration of Independence and father of the University of Virginia but not once is mcutioued that he was president of the United States. He requested that it should not lie there. Standing there gaziug at his grave a feeling of deepest revereuce comes over one. This man so deeply affected by Voltaire, Diderot Rosseau and other French writers took the great view of democracy an I tided us safely over whereas the Freuch so sadly fell under. With just this feeling we drove off from " Monticello" to get glimp ses elsewhere "We passed along by McCue's home aud found that his two younger childreu still live in the old home with their aunt. Know the rumor of some time ago, we asked the driver if he thought that McCue was really dead. "Deed Missus." he said, "I wouldn't lak to take his chances.'' Then by E A. Poe's old room we went. To superstitious minds the fact that his room was number thirteeu is a solvent to his dissipat ed, nervous and short life. A peep at president Monroe's old home and then on the Ivy Road until home agaiu. All along this road we heard names of great Virginians and too, namerof of some of our great North Carolinians are frequently mentioned. A few days later I asked Dr. Currell, formerly of Davidson Col lege, but now of Washington and Lee College,' why so many of our prominent men leave the State. "North Carolina expects more in return for the dollar than any other state," he said. "Why I jfet more at Washington and Lee than the professors at your Univer sity."
