The Cannon Factor.
A notion popped into our head
this week that We ought to go down
to the Cannon factory again, bo we
weut. The obliging foreman, J. D.
Bacon, put himself to the trouble
to show tis round and answer all our
questions ; so he started us at the
mixing room, where- the cotton is
first started through. Here it is
run through two lappers and then
goes to the cards, (the factory has
32 carders, and four railway heads
in this department). From thence
it goes to the drawing frames, of
which there is six. Then it goes
to the slubbers, two in number;
then to the speeders, 4 in number.
Next we come to 20 spinning frames,
which has 2S0 spind.'es, all going
around in a rapid whirl. From
thence we follow it to the speeding
frame, and then to two spoolers of
the very latest improved pattern.
Again we start and follow this same
cotton to two warpers, and then to a
large cylinder slasher, where it is
sized and prepared for the looms ;
through these it is rapidly turned
into cloth, then passes to a dressing
machine and then through the cloth
folder. It is then pressed aud baled
and sent North. The factory is
now fully equipped, having all nec
essary machinery to keep the 130
looms constantly busy. The whole
factory is lighted up with electric
lights. A fire pump is in readiness
for any emergency and the water
piping runs all over the building.
A Morse elevatoi does the lifting
and lowering from story to story.

its heavy 'arm makes one dizzy.

Please do me the favor to give me

impression that has gone out among
the people concerning an article in
connection with my circular, which

was never more astonished , and
immediately took steps to find out
who had done me the injustice to
publish the article (if it is a reflec
tion on my competitor) and my cir
cular. Mr. J. W. Mehaffy informed
me that he had written the article,
and having to use a thin envelope
took one of. my circulars to wrap
around the article for better protec

should be printed in connection
with his article The circular and
article was published withont my
consent ; and I beg the public not to
attach any blame to me for the pub
lication in the Signal, as I believe
they will not when they know the
truth. It is my wish to be elected
