about the size of a wash tub. The store
was crowded with customers, and George

to go back in the rear room to get an or

he found Gunn seated on a cracker box
waiting for the syrup to run through the

jar was large enough for him to have
poured the syrup out of the barrel into
it. Billy took out the funnel, filled the

THE COTTON FACTORY.
The .Argus has been giving itself
most heartily to the building up of
Jackson'and Butts county. Every
week there are to be seen unmistak*.
able evidence of this fact, and especi
ally has it shown this in the effort it is
now putting forth to arouse our peo
ple to the importauce of building a
cotton factory at this place.
The times are hard and business L
waning everywhere, and Jackson, and
no other place, will be able to hold
its own and make advances, unless
new industries are startling up.
A cotton factory here means that
capital, which is now lying idle, will
be put into circulation, and pass into
the hands of those wbo need it with
which which to buy the necessaries of
life. At the same time, this capital
will be invested and yield a handsome
profit to the stockholders, and also
be a benefit to our laboring class.
The demand everywhere is fop more
money. This isju9t what a factory
ftillgheus. It will bring money to
us for the cotton manufactured, and
this paid out every week by the hun
dreds to laborers in the factory, will
placa a large amount of money in cir
culation. One factory well managed
means another and another.
This will make Jackson not ouly a
better cotton market, but the increase
of population which it will give us,
will make Jackson a far better mar
ket for farm productsof every kind.
Not only then should our people in
town feel au interest in this move

Mr, Strickland, a citizen of Jackson
says he can remember in 1837 that the
citizens would club together, and let
one man buy property that was sold,and
give it back to the man who owned it,
taking his note for it with no security,
except the man’s honor. Those were
good old days when we had no home
stead laws or dodgiug technicalities, to
evade debts. A man’s word was his
bond. Have we fallen or is there honor
in the old land yet.
