irrepressjvble diabolically gay, and

snow-fall that lias set the oldest iahabi
tiints talking.- i 1 ' I '
The House met on Thursday'and, after
a brief session, adjourned 'till Monday,
but the session, brief as it was, was suffi
ciently long for Mr. Orth,- of Indiana, to
express his protest and 1 his iudignation
at being ignored in the formation of im
portant committees. ! This is the begin
ning! the- forty-seventh Congress' will
not hear the' end of the very general
dissatisfaction with i Speaker Keifers
committee mechanism. For the last ten
or fifteen years,-there has been a feeling
among legislators that the system of
naming the personel 1 of committees by
the Speaker, concentrated too much
power in the hands of one man. .So long
however, as the Speaker followed the
rule of recogniziug, as far as possible,
the leaders of the' House and placing
them on important committees there
had been no emphatic protest ; but now
comes Speaker Keifer,. ignoring all
precedents, and nearly "all the recog
nized leaders, causing great dissat
isfaction in both rank and file., and in
both parties. Mr. Springer, of Illinois,
will, in a few days, offer a 1 resolution,
setting forth that unknown and inexper
ienced. men! have been assigned to im
portant committees while older members
and those familiarjwith legislation and
the rules of the House, have not only
been gagged by being placed onmim
portant committees, but that they have
been removed froni Important commit
tees where they have long served, and
that their efficiency as legislators has
been conspicuously' arid wantonly im
paired ; that the action, of the Speaker is
not so mucha -personal affront as it is
a wrong to their constituents and to the
country, whose interests demand the best
ability and most matuie experience, or,
in other words, that tools shall not be
given to bunglers, but to those who can
use them. The feeling of dissatisfaction
among members isj by no means, con
fined to Mr. Orth, of to Democrats J It is
shared by the friends of Mr. Orth and of
Mr. Kason, aud is prevalent anions the
Western, the Eastern, tW Southern j the
New England, and the ?iew York delega
tions. It -needs no prophet to predict
that, with this intense' feeling existing,
the forty-seventh ougresi will not jbe a

This business is increasing very rapidly,

KEFIXIXG THE .CRUDE OIL4
But another step lsas been taken. in th ;
haudling of cotton, and mills have b en
established for the) purpose of refininjj
cotton seed oil, and thus increasing its
value. Oil that has;been refined is worth
from 65 cents to $1 a gallopi while crud
oil is .wortli -only 50 cents, so that the ret
fining process adds about jOj per ceut. and
makes the oil of .oner ton of seed worth
about 822, or one-fourth the!
value of thii
cottou that the seed prod uecjd
There are nine of ( these ; refineries now
in operation. Oue of them, in Montsoiu-
cry, refines 100 barrels or 5,000 gallons !a
day,. thus adding 812;x) every day to the
value of the prouuct it haitdlies. The otl-

see the re

htuiig capacity double perhaps. The
mills now running tell all th4y can make,
and could sell ten tinies as ifanchi Eng
land and France would take! the product
of J 00 refineries at present pi ioes. In
deed, most of the mills sell tliieir yearly
product by contract.. A latejsuit devel
oped that an English company had de
posited $30,000 in Memphis 4s a bonus to
secure the output of oue refinery for one
season. ; ' i
A SUBSTITUTE FOR LAJD.
In the meantime the refinejs are crea
ting a new market and a better demand
for their oil. It is used largely as an il
luminating oil, being the beit lor lieadv
lights and reflectors. It is bsed as ati
adulteration of linseed oil, and is mo-
nouueed by paiuters preferabe tb linseed
itself. It is used almost entirely . for
packing fish and especially jsardiues in
America And it is nsed as ai substitute
for lard in cooking. It is made iuto what
is called cotton butter, and iu this shape
is rapidly supplanting lard. Two pieces
of steak fried, one with oil and the other
with jard, cannot be told apart. For
bread it is a perfect substitute for lard,
aud lor batter-breads it, is ni ich-better.
In egg bread it fills the place of eggs. In
fact, in the kitchen it is cleanlier, healthi
er, and better than lard, if the testimony
of housekeepers cau be taken.! It is much
cheaper. A pound of cottou I butter will
do the cooking of a pound anjd a half of
lard, and costs only 13 cents,' while lard
is worth 16 to 20 cents. When a pan of
steak has been cooked with jil,. the oil
not absorbed in the steak cad be poured
back into the can and used a-raiu. beiuf
just as clear and pure as before it was
put over the lire. If it was used entirely
iu the place of lard, we should have to
write the epitaph "Died of a Frying Pan"
over departed southern vigorl less fre
quently than before. This oil has been
tried in making the lightest ku best of
cake, and found inco upurnbh. I asked
Mr. J K. Boston, wltu U interested iu the
isale of cotton butter,;why it was, it being
half as costly, quite as good, add cleanlier
than lard, it did not supplant i it at once
and entirely. i y '
"Simply because there U prejudice
ngaiust changing a enstom .Which our
fathers aud mothers used. It is just the
fsame prejudice that! caused ! people to
carry-a pumpkin at one end of a stiek and
balance it with a rock; at the I other for
years and years before they: discover
ed that they could put quel pumpkin
against another. However, 4 being
introduced more rapidly than we had
dared to hope." ' - i ;
'If you can sell all you refiu," I asked,
Mr. Boston the other, lay, "to Europe,
why do you labor to Create a demand iu
America V ; j- ; j
I Simply because if we open a kiew mar
ket we make a larger demand 4nd better
prices. We have just shipped 11,000 bar
rels from the Montgomery refiuiery at Ca
cents a gallon. At 13 cents a pooid fir but
ter, every, gallon-of oil will yield $1. For
many reasons we prefer a hoiije market
aud theu we believe, we do a giiod thing
iu substituting this perfectly elean, pure
vegetable oil tor lard in our homes. As
for the demand, I tell yon thatj if every
tois of Cotton seed in te South was press
ed uext year I could sell the entire out
put before the 15th of November. I could
actually have it sold before it was made."
l AX EXORJIOCS; WASTAGE.

- "Now let me show what a
thero is. The cotton 1 crop of last vear
produced over-3,(XX),000 tous of seed it
averaging about half a ton of seed to eve
ry bale of cotton. Of this amount only
l0,()09 tons, tr about iane-sixfeenth, was
worked'- up. W'ith tfie other 2,80(),000
there was buried and wasted 98,000,000

ii speak advisedlywjieu I'Kjiy wasted,
for it was literally irasted. The. vast
amount of seed not put through the mijls
was useu lor ieei ior siock or ieriuizera.
But it i demonstrable that the seed f is
better for either food or. fertilizers after,
the oil has been taken - out - than before.
The oil makes it too rich for food and re
tards its decomposition and assimilation
as a fertilizer, i A ton of the meal, the
bulk left after the oil is taken out, is
worth ! $18 dollars, or nearly twice as
much as a ton of seed. Indeed, Mr. Bos
ton tells me he exchanges xn his farm
two tons of seed for one tou of meal. The
hull of the seed is used for fuel at the
mills, jand the ashes from these hulls is
worth $25 a ton for fertilizing uses.
If the whole crop of cotton, sefed aa
worked through the oil mills therefor, it
would add over 860,000,000 to the cotton
crop aiid not ! deprive the land of one
pouud of .fertilizer outhe cattle and sheep
of oue pound of food. Indeed," it would
only assist the land and the stock in di
gesting the food audnake it more agree
able to them, and yet we work up only
one-sixteenth of the seed. I
Oue difficulty,' of course Is the lack of
Gipital with which to build mills. Tins
is being rapidly eliminated. . Each tear

Anotner uimcuny, anu qute a serums
one, is that the mills that cannot buy
enough seen to ueep tnem uusy the jyear
through. 'Ihelarmers having been ac
customed for years to throw their seed
back on the ground or waste it altogjjthe
still pursue that plan. Of course inills
established in. new localities will be jsup
plied from new territory. Even old iunlls
rind it easier to bay seed every jvear.
The rise in the .price of tempts newf far
mers to sell, and in a short time the'mills
will get all the seed they want. jThen
they will run twelve months in thej year
instead of six months as at preseutj and
their capacity will be practically doubled
A STEP STILL FURTHER FORWARD;
Now, wq have seen how, in the past
few years, we have takcu from a ton of
cotton seed 25 gallons of oilj hitherto
wasted, worth first 30 a'tid then 40 jceuts
a gallon ; and we have seen under this
process the cash value of a ton of cotton
seed rise from $6 to! 812. We have! seen
further, a system of leaning established
by which the-j crude oil, selling at 4Uj cents
a gallon, has been made worth 65 cents
,to 81 agaliou. Bui; we should uo stop
even here 5
The American .Grocer shows -that! salad

from $2.50 to $4 a gallou. There is not

in the whole range of nature, a morel per
fect economy than is .furnished ini the
handling of cotton seed. It conies t the
mill bursting with an oil the quality of
which is incomparable aiid the demand
for which is cxhaustless. The bulk of
the seed brcomes more valuable as au
article of commerce and more useful for
its material purpose after this wealth of
oil has been pressed out. In its hulls it
furnishes the fuel for the machinery used
to crush the balsam from its body Scar
ries eveii into ifs ashes all the valuable
properties of its hulls. Considering t ese
things, and the contempt in which this
precious seed has been held, isn't there a
tinge of romance in its development, its
beneficent adjustments and its perfect
vindication. H. W. 0.
