PREDOMINENT TRAITS OV THE BUTTER
FLY CHRYSALIS. . ,.'"'., '
Butterflies and gnats, bees, ants, flies,
crickets and many other insects have
inspired writers of -poetry I and prose;
but up to the present time, so far as
we know, no one has niadethe cater
pillar his theme; and yet cloiely ex
ami tied, many of the caterpillars nre
well nigri as gorgeous in the raiment
as the most - beautiful o butterflies.
The caterpillar is infinite in its variety
of color, varying front black, allien
gray, and white to bright greens and
yel ows, browns with -rich bands on
blotches of white, yellow and scarlet,
and indeedr of almost every variety
of brilliant color. Sometimes it is
soft, smooth and hairless at others
covered with short, thick silken hairs
like velvet, and sometimes bristling
with long stiff hair, a very porcupine
among its fellows. Caterpillars from
the time they are born, give evidence
of the possession of two predoraiuent
faculties one an all-devouring appi
tite, the other the knowledge of con
stant danger and the desire lo esciipe
the eye of their teeming foes. This
they do in accordance with' varied in
stincts inherited fram progenitors.
Some will hide on the ; underside of a
leaf, others will eat into its substance,
and establish themselves a domicile be
tween the outer and inner tissue, pro
ceeding at once to enl irge their house
and to satisfy their appetites. Others
oji the approach of danger, will curl
hem. selves up and drop to the ground,
rusting to-tortnne to rail between two
clods of earth, but, in any case, sham-
minir dead until the danger has, as
hey believe, passed away Another
kind, a grayish-brown i ini color, and
rough and knobby of skin, will stand
upright, imitating so exactly the ap
pearance of a little bent twig, that the
keenest eye would fail to detect the
difference; while a great many cater
pillars guard themselves from the first
in a place of concealment, and there
passing the great e.- portion of their live.
When, as not unlieeq'iVently happens,
the chosen hiding place is in the
heart of a bud ju&t beginning to form,
the results are naturally the death of
the flower and extreme exaperation
upon the part of the flower's owner.
But all these means of defence are
more or less passive in their character.
A not inconsiderable section no sdoner
leave the egg than they set to work to
form themselves shelter by tu ruing
over the edge of the leaf and fastening
it with silken threads,' so as to form at

ly there are he caterpillars who Jive
in communities, and who establish a
a riiupart against their foes by throw
ing rouud their dwelling ploce a thick
curtain of silken threads, through
which their insect foes cannot break
and even birds seem to hold in high
The mission of the paterpillar nvtv
be considered as twofold 5 he has. to
reach the chrysalis stage, .from which
he will smerge as a butterfly or moth,
and then perpetuate" his- species; 1 and
he is an admiral macnincior nue con-
version of veiretable i. matter into a
form in which it can be digested and
relished by birds. He stands to the.feat-
ered world, indeed, iu exactly the same
position that the ox and the sheep occu-

seemed most absolute and a fight

olinianT who had made nide repn tac
tion as an engineer planned and organ
ized in connection with his. friends a
5,000,000 company 'to build independ
ent oil mills. mtfiin a few months
from its formation thw eomrfiiny had
eight of ther best cotton oil miffs ?ever
built in full operation, Jocated at poin.ts
where they could best'eonijtete with
the mills of the "Trust." The mo
nopoly was broken and the South was
saved, from the danger of having this
great industry controlled by one com
pany, Which could force prices of seed
down and oil up at its own good pleas
ure. Millions of dollars were saved to
the planters by this successful fight
against the first great "Trust"! which
threatened Southern prosperity.
-The jute bagging Trust wus-so skill

that Lot until the cotton crop was be
ginning to move was its" "existence
realized. ' Its. organizers felt ,safe.
They knew that the cotton - n.ut.be
bagged promptly and sent to market,
and they bo.isted of what they were
going to do in the way of advancing
prices. To attempt to fight this
"Trust" by bringing out a substitute
for jute bagging in time for the present
crop was apparently worse than use
less. It would only lead to ielay in
shipping cotton and to still higher
prices for bagging. PI alters were ad
vised to submit with the .best, grace
possible this year in hopes That before4
another season rolled around -a-remedy
for the evil would have been foundL
This advice, however, was not taken,
instead of that the whole South was
bent upon defeating the "Trust" at
the very start, and many have been
the devices brought out to accomplish
it. Practically the "Trust ' is dead.
Substitutes even better thau jute have
been found. As already known to
our readers the Lane Mills, of New
Orleans, and the Acme manufacturing
Co. have produced bagging, one from
low grade cotton and one from pine
straw, which meet all the requirements
