THE COTTON SEED OIL BUSINESS.
It seems tbat there are certain
peculiar condition surroundings the
farmers that by some means or
other, purposely or otherwise, mili
tate to their disadvantage in the;
end. For instance, our fine timber
is being butchered up andj destroy
ed, being sold for almost a song
because it is possible in that way to
realize a little cash. This may be
some temporary advantage to some
individuals, but the country at
large suffers. Combines and Trusts
are made for buying those things
farmers want to sell, and for selling
what they want to buy. This is a
great business, and the products
that can be made from cotton seed
are so various and so useful that it
will be vastly developed, instead of
The great innovations of this kind
in the last few years is the cotton seed
oil manufacture, this i3 in some
respects an advantage to the farm
er, but it is a debateable question if
in the end the result will not tend
to the disadvantage of agriculture.
The purposes to which cotton seed
were formerly devoted, were feeding
them to stock, and applying them
as fertilizers. They contain a vast
amount of food materials for plants
and answered a fine purpose. Now
mills aro being put up of such ca
pacity that not only the local supply
of cotton seed is consumed, but they
are establishing agencies for the
purpose of buying up seed at small
er towns. Good prices can be and
are paid, and our farmers for the
sake of a little extra cash, sell their
seed, and though it may be said
truthfully, it is cheaper to sell the
seed and buy the fertilizers, the
'misfortune is that the money is
used for something else, and no
more fertilizers are bought or made
than when cotton seed were used for
that purpose. The products of the
cotton seed are such important com
mercial commodities that it is now
useless to cry against the custom of
selling the cotton seed, but we can
cry against the injustice that is be
ing done thejlanda in robbing them
of a fruitful source of plantfood,
and not substituting therefor an
HOW TO USE ThFcONVICTS.
The Roanoke News suggests that
our convicts in the penitentiary be
put to work to manufacturing
guano, which, can be sold to con
sumers at or near actual cost. This
is by no means a worthless idea.
Several important considerations
favor this plan. In the first place,
the directors of the penitentiary are
in a dilemma. During the sitting
of the last Legislature such a cry
was raised against the great cost of
supporting the penitentiary, that it
was decided to make that concern
self-supporting. A3 soon ag steps
were taken to accomplish thi3 end,
a great howl was raised that convict
labor was put into competition with
honest labor. This will always be
the case, and about the only way to
remedy the wrong, will be to create
a new industry. This the State has
a right to do, and it seema that it
is expected of her to some extent,
s for instance in the development
of the oyster beda in our State,
which is now growing to be quite
an important industry. In the same
way the State had to lead in the
opening up of our vast swamp lands.
Kow let her develope the fertilizer
industry, by using the vast deposits
of marl, and phosphate beda in the
eastern part of our State.
We still hold that the best way
convict labor can be used is in im
proving the roads of the county,
and we hope to see thi3 done at an
early day. But there will always
be a certain class of criminals that
it will not be expedient for the
county to use. This force could be
used as suggested above.

was borne by tremulousness of the

further evidenced by a peculiar in

of many rough looking men are
changed into such tremulous notes
of so high a pitch as to make one
imagine that a child on verge of

How crime in cities and manufac

financial condition of thecommunity,
we know not ; but in an agricultural
section our observation is that crime
increases or diminishes as the money
crop is good or indifferent. This
may seem strange, but the writer
was a clerk of the court for several
years. The dockets of that court,
while a good crime barometer, was
also a financial one. As soon as the
effects of good crops or prosperous
times were felt, clinics began to in
