The watermelon business is now
the cheif concern of the railroads here
A few days ago the traffic mana
gers of the roads concerned, met at
the Kimball house lo discuss ways
and means of gelling llie crop (o
market quickly. The result of their
deliberations was the adopttion of
twenty miles an hour schedules and
close concur!ions hv all the roads in
terested in the melon freights. The
running time will he twenty miles,
and only necccssary stops will ho
added. The roads all agreed lo make
schedules for fruit trains so that cadi
connecting line would have a train
ready lo take oul melons brought to
ils terminus by oilier roads. In ad
dition to this connecting lines will bo
advised by wire of the number of
cars in transit lo he delivered lo it for
its next schedule. In this way mo
tive power, in proportion lo the nnm J
her of cars, will he ready to lake them
on. Til short, the roads propose lo
handle the business a little better
Ilian I hey have ever handled it be
hast year, according lo the statistics
of the Albany convention, the net re
turn to growers averaged ifld on
melons in ventilated and $7 on those
in boxcars. It is a desideratum this
year lo use as few box cars as possi
ble. hast year about twenty-live per
cent of the crop was shipped in box
cars. Thi year tho roads propose lo
do much better in this respect. The
East Tennessee people say 1 hey will
beat everything they have done here
tofore by using ventilated cars and
fast schedules. The houisvillc and
Nash illo people, who had a fine ser
vice last year, have added SOO now
ventilated cars which they will use in
the Georgia melon crop.
The Western and Atlantic people
say they and their connections will
use very few box cars, and not at all
unless the shippers crowd in on some
There are new lines which will
complete as outlets for the Georgia
business. The Macon and Covington
will take melons form Macon to Alli
ens gild there deliver them to the
Richmond and Danville, The mel
ons from (ho new territory on the
Georgia Southern and Florida will
largely go that way, it is thought.
Those from tho Atlanta e.nd Florida
.can go out by any of the lines from
Atlanta oast or west. The additional
crop on the 1,000 acres now territory
between Macon and Cochran lias
been sold ahead in Boston. It is a
special crop, and Mr. Griffin thinks
will turn out from 500 la 000 cars of
select fruit. The East Tennessee line,
of course, will carry that business as
far as Norfolk.
Schedules were arranged at the
Kimball house meeting so (hat Hie
Savannah, Florida and Western rail
road will run trainsto Albany, leaving
Valdosta in the morning, gathering
loaded cars on the way and deliver
ing them to the Central at Albany in
the evening, so that it may deliver
them to tho Lotiisvillo and Nashville
at Montgomery at llvo o^lpck tho
next morning. The Louisville and
Nashville will run a 'rain from Mont
gomery at six oelock a. m. on a thir
ty-hour schedule to Cincinnati.
The same time will he made by trains
leaving Valdosta in the evening, con
necting at Montgomery twenty-hours
The Savannah, Florida & Western
trains to Albany will also connect with
fast freight schedules of about iohours
to Atlanta, and here with twenty miles
an hour schedules over the Western &
Atlantic railroad to Chattanooga and
the west. The schedule from here to
Cincinnati will be about twenty-five
hours. The Nashville, Chattanooga
and St. Louis and the Cincinnati
Southern roads have agreed to put on
connecting schedules to suit the deliv
eries of the Georgia roads.
The Chattanooga, Rome & Colum
bus road proposes to do some business
by a connection with the Central by
way of Carrollton. Its road bed and
motive power will be good, but it is
not known how many ventilated cars
it has at its disposal.
The drought in south Georgia is
threatening in that part of the state
and may reduce the yield below what
has been anticipated.
Railroad estimate of the melon crop
of Georgia are now about as follows:
From the tine of the East Tennessee
road tOO cars
From thclincof tboFavannah Flor
ida A W’eatern road 2,000 cars
From the tine of the Georgia South
cm A Florida road I»000 cara
From the line of the Atlanta A Flor
ida road 1,100 cara
From tho line of the Central road . 2,300 care
From the line of the Georgia road.. 250 cars
Total 7,250 cars
This is about 2,000 cars more than
last year’s crop.
The railroads say that the consump
tion spreads over a larger territory
every year, and more towns ot 10,000
inhabitants will be on the rate sheets
this year. Consequently they think
the larger crop will bring as good
prices as ever.
Mr. J. L. Hand, who tvent to Chica.
go to ask the Chicago and Ohio River
association for lower rates heyond the
Ohio river, returned somewhat en
couraged, as some of the roads show
ed a disposition to make the reduc
The rates are in the hands of the
railroads, and the following are the
freights to some of the leading poits :
RATES PER CAR OF 24,000 POUNDS.
Atlanta to Chicago $81 CO
Atlanta to Iiuflhlo, New York 78 98
Atlanta to Cincinnati 45 80
Atlanta to Cleveland, Ohio 78 80
Atlanta to Detroit, Mich 79 20
Atlanta to Evansville, Ind 45 80
Atlanta to Louisville. Ky 45 80

Atlanta to St, Louis, Mo 84 80
Atlanta to Pittsburgh, Pa 78 32
Atlanta to Memphis, Tenn 45 80
Atlanta to Nashville, Tenn 23 90
From Macon to these points the rate
will be four cents per hundred, $9.60
per car more than from Atlanta. From
Albany it will be seven cents per hun
dred or $16.80 per car more than
from Atlanta, jesup will be nine
cents and Valdosta eleven cents high
er than Atlanta. .
These rates are not generally known,
but will be substantially as above giv
en. They are approximately based
on a scale of eight mills per ton per
mile to the Ohio river, and one cent
per ton per mile on roads beyond.
The'rate to Louisville and Cincinnati
figures out within 36 cents of this.on a
car load, and that to Nashville within

Elam, of this city, who is now in Tex

sends us the following:
Dallas, Tex , May 25, 1889.
Editor Recorder Enclosed I
hand you a clipping showing a very
successful way in which the farmers of
Texas are saving their cotton from the
ravages of the cotton worm. If you
have not done so already it would be
of interest to the farmers of your sec
tion for you to call their attention to
this simple, cheap and effective meth
od of getting rid ol the pests. The
lamps, I believe, costs 25 cents each.
W. E. Elam.
The farmers ol Lamar county are
taking dilhgent and timely steps to
prevent the worms from destroying
their cotton. The means adopted are
not costly, and are proving destiuctive
to the insects. It is this: A number
of tin lamps, fixed in the center of
pans of-water and oil, are set on stakes
in dtflerent parts of the field. The in
sects that lay the eggs from which the
destructive worm is hatched, go to the
light, fall into the water and oil, and
all is up with them. Thescheme is a
successful one.—Americus Recorder.
