Charlotte Chronicle, Sept. 28. In
the Charlotte market cotton seed are
selling at 22 cents, when at the same
time last year the price was about 10
cents. And this is the result of the
Southern Cotton Oil Company com
peting with the American Cotton Oil

Co. has built eight splendid mills within
a few months, says the Manufacturer s
Record, with an aggregate capacity of
rorking up l,600,tons of seed per day

this country. The competition with
the American Co. is effective, and will
redown to the interest of cotton raisers
throughout the cotton country.

The Commissioner of Internal Reve-
nue is preparing a statement that will
show to what extent the Government
receipts would be decreased by a total
repeal of the internal revenue taxes,
and the result, so fur, is. interesting in
one aspect, at least, as showing a de
cided change in the bibulous tenden
cies and inclinations of the citizens of
the United States, it appears that as
compared with the previous fiscal year
there has been a great falling off in
the manufacture of whisky the de
creased taxation amounting to nearly
three millions and three quarters the
decline having been noticed for a num
ber of years past. But, on the other
hand, the manufacture of beer is so
rapidly increasing that it may now be
termed the national beverage, the
a a al a
increased taxation ot tne past year
showing a gain of about two million
and a half dollars over the preceding
vear. At an early date the Com mis-
sioner proposes to have an analytical
test made of every brand of American
beer, as it is alleged that many brewers
use more alcohol in making their beer
than the law allows hence it is
thought the analysis will cause a sen
sation. The Commissioner of Internal
Revenue states it as jiis belief that the
steadv decrease in the manufacture of
distilled spirits is due to the rapid
growth of temperance reform in this

How Buxmah Ruby A ta are
Ruby earth is culled by the natives
of Burtnnh "byun," ana is generally
found at two different depths, the first
layer at about four feet, and the second
and richer one at twenty to thirty feet
below the surface. It is generally ex
tracted by a company of miners,
ten or twelve in numbe. Pits
are dug about eight feet square, lined
with rough timber, and braced with
four crosspieces at intervals. Water
enters the pit on; sinking a short dis
tance below the surface, and the prin
cipal work and source of expense is
keeping the mine free, from wafer.
Upright posts are let into the ground
at a short distance" from the mouth.

a bucket weighted with stone to
counterbalance the contents of the
basket, which is connected, with the
longer arm by n bamboo which reaches
to the bottom of the pit. This con
trivance forms a most efficient though
simple means of raising both water
and earth by manual labor. General
ly six or eight of the levers overhang
each pit in actual working, and pfob-

thus extracted is placed in a neap at
the side of the pit, and on first expos
ure, while wet, sparkles in the sun with
myriads of small stones, brilliant in
color, but not large enough, unfortu
nately, to be of any value. When a
sufficient quantity has been obtained it is
washed in bamboo trays and handed
over to the sorters, who, after carefully
examining it and taking out any stones
of value, pass it on again to a small
colony of women and children, who
generally surround every pit, and who
again sort it slowly over in hopes of
finding some smaller stones that may

ludicrous sight to see two or three
little children, who perhaps can scarce

with most serious faces, as if they
realized that their existence depended
upon their exertions. No machinery is

Wanamaker on Advertising.
John Wanamaker, the great Phila
delphia merchant, recently spoke as
follows about advertising:
UI never in my life used such a thing
as a poster, dodger or hand bill. My
plan for fifteen years has been to buy
so much space in a newspaper and fill
it up with what I wanted. I would not
give an advertisement in a news
paper of 400 circulation for 5,000
dodgers or posters. If I wanted
