ithin the next few vears tilov two-
thirds of the mattress uinkTi-- of the
United States, and ot ah other mattress
using c-u dries, will be thrown cut of
employment, ur the manufacture of that
commodity en which wc pass more than
one-third our liTe willlte three ; i:ie great
er than the ilcraaftl. This is a somewhat
startling statement, but cue whieh is
thoroughly conservative in light ' f the
splendid result.- easily obtained fro r.
mattress feeling machine recently nr
fecteel by our townsman Mr. Thomas
Gaskill. and for which a patent wusgrant
ed on August 21th. The statement is
whereas i: U based on woi accomplished
by tvs gentlemen who 'are wholly inex
perienced Tn the art and science of mat
tress making, it follows that labor ot ex
perience will do much more; thus the
greater probability is that within -evci
vears ruavbap ?evcrat montns more
than three-ouaiter- of the men who now
earn t..eir dui' v bread in a mattress fac
tory will be compelled to tnrn their at
e on to other pursuits.
Eight expert workmen arc only aliie,
to-dav. to finish foltv cotton top mat
tresses. An employer who has eight
workmen who average fortv mattresses
per day of ten hours, considers himself
fortunate in the possession of workmen so
clever. ilh tight workmen ami Uas
kilFs mattress maker, one hundred and
twenty mattresses in a dav often hours is
not especial! v good work; it is onlv ordi
nary. Eight men who are thoroughly
lamiliar with the operation should do
better work, but our estimate is minimiz
Another advantage llie machine has
over the man is that the work turned out
4s not only greater in quantity and finer in
finish, but is roblcd entirely ot its present
disagreeable operations. Mattress making
by hand entails upon the workmen the
breathing of untold quantities of dirt, and
dust into the lung?; the very first opera
tion b to run the body head first into the
rear end of the tick and carelully lay the
straw; this must be kept up until the tick
is tall of straw belore the workman lias a
chance to breath pure air. For nearly
one hour his nose is within six inches of
the straw, and his head aud body shoved
well into the tick and though he may have
leen, just prior to entering, as clean as a
char sky, when he emerges he is the
color of simple dirt his eyes are blinded
and his ears and nostrils full ot dirt and
The whole process of filling a mattress,
whether it be a cotton top straw or the
the finest hair or wool an it !e, is accom
plished with the machine by merely turn
ing a small crunk, the operator be Ing
some distance from the tick. A b -x or
chute contains the straw and b tn arc
forced into the tick when the b is with
drawn the straw remains in tin : ',.
Tbeonly thing left to do tx : .re the mat
tress U all ready to be !ain mi is the sew
ing up of one end and tulti ig. One mau
easily sews ami tufts a mnttre-- m half an
hour. Two men with he uu-li:sc can
easily fill a tick m rive minutes; therefore
when eight men ar at work, two tilling
ticks and six sew an 1 tufting the output
every hour is twelve mattress or one
hundred and twenty in one day of ten
hour. The sum-- e,;ht men without the
machine an I doing their level best eouid
onlv turn out f -y good mattresses.
The great beauty of the machine is its
extreme simplicity, and though free from
any complication it can be easily -.erne 1
in a tew seconds into a machine that fills
a single size or quarter size mattress.
It must be seen from the foregoing that
this invention is a great labor saver A
manufacturer who now employs twenty
fonr men to produce one hundred and
twenty mattresses per day will be en
abled with the machine to produce the
same uumlxr of mattrese with only one
third the number of employee. thi;
dispensing with eighteen employees.
Each workman must cost at leat oue
dollar per day, which would be a saving
to the manufacturer whausedthe ma
chine of $4,303 per year. Thus it is
clear that Giskiii's mattress machine is 0f
great value, though it costs oniy i lea
dollars to make i

C, on the 21st day of November, 1 H.r,S;
died iu Chapel Hill, N. C, Aug. 20th,
1894; age 35 years. She graduated at
GreensUiro Female College, May 1875,
with the valedictory. She began teach
ing school at Durham, N. C, in the fall
of the same year. She came to New
Berne in 1878 and established a private
school, which she taught successfully for
four years, and then gave it up in the in
terest of public schools in her own native
home. She went to Quincy, Mass., in
the interest of public graded se bool work
so as to establish the same in her native
city but did not return, but took a posi
tion in Quincy went from there to Bos
ton, where she taught for six years, bear
ing the rccorel of one of the best teachers
in that city from the Superintendent of
the Boston public schools, and then she
stopped her teaching to perfect herself in
the Ling System of physical culture and
English at the Harvard Annex, which she
hpeel to make a specially, and then she
came South as Principal of the Ilem-n-wy
school at Norfolk, Va., where she
established the Ling system, which she-
made a success.
She remained principal of this school
till the death of the oun !er, and through
her influence and advice the Board of
Education of that city bought the build
ing for a high school, asking her to return
au take charge of the work which she
had so successfully managed.
Her latest work for education so dear
to her heart whs that done during the
summer at the Schools of Methods
throughout the South, and at the Nation
al Teachers' Association, Asburv P.iik.
N. J., at which place her address on
"What Makes, What Mars the Teacher,"
won for her a national reputation.
After those duties she went to ( hapel
Hill to rest quietly until her tall work
should begin. Strange to sav that her
last words in the interest of 1 dueation
were said where her tirst were wlicu she
staited her work as a brave, courageous
girl, showing then as always, an enthu
siasm and zeal for the best, moral, and in

ol high culture and refinement but she
was an instructress with very advanced
ideas a teacher of teachers. A paper
whieh she read before the North Carolina
Teacher's Assembly, one of the largest
and lu st gatherings eif its kiud in the
South, was strongly complimented lor its
advanced ideas and progressive thought.
the idt as were not only progressive but
lo a large extent new. We have heard
more than one remark that Miss Harri
son's eleath was a loss to the State.
Dr. Jno. S. Long, who has just return
ed from Baltimore, and was horrified to
hear ol Miss Harrison's death says: - She
was an honor to New Berne and to the
whole State. She possessed a strong and'
lesolute character and was a horn teacher.
Her education had been carried liir be- j
yonel her early advantages at In une and
at Greensboro Female ( oll.ge. in ad- 1
vanced Northern schools and uad. 1 1

scholar she stood among the foremost lady
teach el's of her State. She had a ino-t
sweet and womanly temper towards her
friends and those who knew her. She
was full of ambition, and of a determina
tion to go forward. Then: was absolutely
no limit to her plans. She acknow ledged
nothing to be impossible that was in the
road of duty and excellence as a teacher,
and her character stood high among the
noblest Professors of the land. New
Berne should cherish her memory and the
whole State should honor the name of
such a woman.
