Cotton Mills in tile South.
A Year of Cyclones.
The rapid increase in the nam-
ber of cotton mills in the South is
calculated to make thinking men
wonder how long it will be before
the cotton which is grown in the
South will be manufactured into
cotton goods in Southern mills.
And why should not the South con
sume the bulk of her cotton crop
in mills of her own? She ought to
be able to manufacture cjtton
goods cheaper than they can be
manufactured elsewhere, because
she has good and cheap labor that
can be easily trained to tend the
spindles and looms. She has
genial climate and she produces
food products in such quantities as
to make living as cheap within her
limits as anywhere else in the civ
ilized world. Her mills can get
cotton for several dollars a bale
less than it can be obtained by the
mills in New England or in Europe,
According to an authoritative
report, which the Morning Neivs
published a few dajs ago, the
Southern cotton mills consumed in
the year ending Aug. 81, 546,368
bales of cotton, and in the previous
year 481,245 bales. The increase
in the consumption of Southern
mills, therefore, was 65,118 bales—
a very gratifying increase, but not
as great as it ought to have been
yet great enough to show that the
South is waking up to the fact that
there is great wealth for her
manufacturing her cotton crop.
The number of cotton mills now
in operation in the South is 270,
having 1,665,191 spindles. Thir
ty-nine new mills have begun work
ing this year, and they have 241,
864 spindles. Fifteen more' mills
will be completed this fall, and will
be in operation before Christmas.
Quite a number of mills are idle
now from one cause and another
but it is expected that nearly all
the idle ones will soon be in oper
ation. The total number of mills
iu the South is 336, having 40,819
looms and 1,819,291 spindles.
It is a noteworthy fact that the
increase in the number of-spindles
in the South during the last year
is equal to almost half the number
that was in the South ten years
ago. This fact shows that cotton
manufacturing in the South is
creasing at a wonderful rate. It
justifies the conclusion that within
a comparatively few years the
South will be the cotton manufac
turing, as well the cotton produc
ing, section of the country. The
future of the South certainly looks
The list of disasters and fatal
ities resulting from cyclones has
been so large this year that 1890
will be memorable, probably, in
history as the cyclone year. The
total number of lives lost in this
country so far this year by the
agency of-eyelones is 915, as com
pared with 163 in 1889, 350 in
1888,18S in 1S87, 272 in 1886, and
111 in 1885. It would not be sur

From observations made by the
signal corps in the last score of
years, together with such data as
that body has been able to gain on
the subject for previous years,
Missouri and Kansas are more sub
ject to attacks from the cyclone
than any other states. In the
seventy-eight years covered by the
statistics which the corps published
a year or two ago, Missouri has
been visited 156 and Kansas 153
times. - It would naturally be ex
pected that some state m the im
mediate neighborhood of these
would stand next on the list, but
this assumption-is shown by the
records to be groundless. After
Kansas Georgia, with 128 calls, re
ceives more attention tha nany oth
er state, followed closely, however,
by Illinois, with 127, and Iowa
with 118. Then a skip must be
taken to the far south again, where
Alabama stands with 102 to her
credit. Nearly or. quite every
state east of the Rocky Mountains
has a place on the cyclone records.
We, in Georgia this year have
been almost exempt, fortunately,
from cyclone visits, but the north

H. G. Struve, one of the prominent
citizens of Seattle. While the
great fire was raging he rushed up
into his office to save some of his
most valuable books. It- is well
known that he had accumulated a
vast amount of material which he
purposed working up into a histo
ry of Washington. This material
and some of his books were very
precious to him. So as the fire
came sweeping down ‘toward his
office lie rushed np-stairs and be
gan to select the books most valu
able. “Ah, this one I will save.
No, I guess this one is more valua
ble.” Thus he hesitated, and
among his many books, which were
all dear to him, he was unable to
decide which ones to save. Just
then the cries of the firemen were
raised, and the judge was urged to
come down and save his life.
Being thoroughly alarmed, and
still undecided, he turned and
grabbed the -first book within
reach, and rushed out of the build
ing. Reaching the pavement he
found he had saved—the city di
