A BRILLIANT MARRIAGE.
We merely mentioned the marriage,
l ist week, of Mr. Win. Jolly and Miss
Menla Ham. Mr. Jolly is too well
known in our town to need any commen
dation or notice at our hands, and to
simply state that he is one among the
very best of our young farmers, is suffi
cient, for everybody knows him. Mr.
Jolly is a direct descendant from such
ancestors as Sandford, the arithmetic
man and the Whitfields, and therefore
has royal blood in his veins. Miss Menla
is of the best families in the land. Her
father, our next Tax man, is known by
all our people. Her mother is daughter
of “Uncle Billy McMichael” as everybody
called him, and while Dr. Gardner was
pronouncing the ceremouy we noticed a
life-size picture of Miss Menla’s grand
father, “Uncle Billy,” overlooking the
solemn proceedings, whose lips almost
seemed to move an approbation of the
noble step his grandchild was taking.
Immediately after the ceremouy Mr.
Jolly and his bride drove to the home of
Mr. Joe Jolly for supper, and then
boarded the train for Macon and other
poiuts on a tour. We tender congratu

COUNTY COTTON MILLS.
There is not a single county in the cot
ton growing belt of Georgia that ought
not to manufacture every pound of lint
grown in its borders and as much as she
can buy from her less fortunate neigh
bors. There is scarcely a county in our
state that is not investing sufficient funds
in building and loan associations to
build, equip, and run a cotton mill. In
the issue of September 2Sth of that ster
ling friend of the south, the Manufactur
ers’ Record, of Baltimore, appears an
able and exhaustive article on cotton
mills by co-operation, which conclusively
demonstrates how every county can eas
ily own and control its own cotton mills
without the investment of a dollar of
outside capital. Mr. D. A. Tompkins, of
Charlotte, N. C„ agitated the matter sev
eral years ago and aided in the establish
ment of several cotton mills in his own
city, as well as many others over the
south, which have proved very success
ful. The plan as outlined is : To raise
the necessary capital which is payable
in installments as in building and loan
associations in the shape of regular
weekly or monthly payments. “Follow
ing this line of thought, it was found
that with shares of SIOO par value they
could be paid in full as follows : 1. At
the rate of $1 per week per share the par
value would be reached in a little less
than two years. 2. At the rate of 50
cents a week the time would be a little
less than four years 3. At the rate of
25 cents per week the time would be a
little less than eight years. Each of
these plans of payment has been tried in
Charlotte, N. C., and in each case the
result has been successful.’’
It is stated that the second mode of
payment—so cents per week—was found
most suitable for ordinary conditions.
The Record states :
“Ou the basis of subscriptions aggre
gating SIOO,OOO there would be paid into
the company each year about $25,000.
With this amount of money the buildings
could be constructed and paid for in the
first year. Inside the second year oue
third of the machinery could be pur
chased and put in operation. In three
years from the time ot organization it
would be usually entirely feasible to
have the entire plant in operation, with
some debt, which could be paid off as
the installments were paid in the last
“A capital of SIOO,OOO will build a mill
ot about 5,000 spindles and 200 looms,
which would furnish work for about 10i
hands. These estimates are only givei
for the purpose of conveying the most
aeueral idea. There are infinite condi- ;
tions that might vary any one ot the j
items given, and therefore in each special
case the general result might be different
according to the cost of materials and
the kind of product desired to be made.
Of course, there are various practical
methods of utilising these instaHtne
receipts in hastening the completion and
profits by running the mill. 'VRIi such
an organization as above described in the
hands of conservative business men, tb
, A weeklv or monthly dues would
I " m a safe basis of credit for borrowiag
! capital to equip *• ■*. "“ der
practical management would not only
pay the interest on the borrowed money,
but a fair dividend to tlie shareholders,
thereby shortening the time and lessen
ing the individual outlay. That this co
operation or building and loan plan is
perfectly feasible, is demonstrated by
the following cotton mil's, illustrated
and described in the Manufacturers’
“The Alpha Cotton Mills.—Capital sub
scribed SIOO,OOO. Product, chain warps
and skeins. Subscriptions payable 25
cents per week per share. Capital paid
in full iu a little less than eight years.
Equipment, 0,500 spindles and 100 twist

about six years.
“The Chewalla Cotton Mills.—Capital
subscribed $50,000. Product, print cloth.
Subscriptions payable 50 cents per week
per share. Capital paid in full in a little
less than four years. Equipment, 3,000
spindles and 100 looms.
“The Ada Cotton Mill.—Capital sub
scribed $128,000. Product, chain warps
and skein yarns. Subscriptions payable
50 cents per week per share. Capital
paid in full in less than four years-
Equipment, about 8,000 spindles and
2,500 twisters. Been in oper ition about
“The Highland Park Gingham Mills.—
Capital subscribed $150,000. Product,
ginghams. Subscriptions payable $1 per
week per share. Capital paid in full iu
less than two years. Equipment, 400
gingham looms and dye house. Been in
operation about two years.
“The Gaffney Cotton Mills.—Capital
subscribed $150,000. Product, print
cloths. Subscriptions payable $2 per
week per share. Capital paid in full in
a little le-s than a year. Equipment,
7,000 spindles and 300 looms.”
Many other mills have been built on
the same plan, now iu successful oDera
ti u. It is lamentably true that the
south needs outside capital to develop
her resources, but to get it, we must re
member that the capital can only come
with confidence. We must first help our
selves and then outside help will cheer
fully and abundantly come in. Cotton
at 5 cents is certainly not remunerative
to the grower, but it may be very largely
profitable to the spinner. Eastern man
ufacturers long contended that the south
could not make fiue goods. They them
selves have disproved this and they are
moying this way to save their mill prop
erty. Let's even up. If, as appears
inevitable, we must grow too much cot
ton, t-lie only economic plan is to manu
facture it and save the whole profit to
the producer. Every cotton plauter is
vitally interested. If be will devote one
tenth of bis ciop for a few years to
building cotton mills he will double the
price of bis cotton. It is practical: it is
safe: it is ecouomy; it is wise.

The commitee on grounds and build
ings for the Cotton States and Interna
tional Exposition has just closed a con
tract for the paving of-walks and ways,
with broken limestone, which has the
advantage of comentiug together and
making a firm smooth walk. There will
be about 110,000 yards of this work and
very oareful consideration has been given
to the material.
The contract for the fine arts building
is to be let this week, and especial inter
est attaches to the work, because this
structure may be one of the permanent
features of the exposition. It is quite
probable that it will be used as a museum
after the exposition is over. The design
is peculiarly appropriate, because of its
classic style in design and ornaments.
The government draughtsman, Mr.
Hamilton, who came to Atlanta last
week and looked oyer the site for the
Government building, says the grounds
for the Cotton States and International
Exposition are admirably situated and
beautifully laid off. He thinks the scene
will be very picturesque.

In an old memorandum picked np

You have my heart, I’ll be your queen.

DON’T YOU THINK SO?
Everybody who is anybody takes the
Argus. The reason we say so is because
every issue of the paper contains some
little bit of information that is worth
five times the price of the paper. Read
er you may think this don’t apply to you
and that you have never been so much
benefitted, if so, you are bound to sup
port your eouuty paper anyway as much
as you are your church. A man who
does not support the public necessities
of bis county is not worthy of any posi
tion the people might give him. But if
you will think you can remember some
advertiseme it, if nothing more, that
saved you more than the price of the
paper. Besides a notice worth nothing
to you might be worth fifty dollars to
your neighbors. Now read this, and if
it is not worth money to you it is not
our fault that thefelou has not jet come;

“There is no use of losing sleep from a
