As it is now, although the south furnishes the. crop upon which, more than any other export item, our foreign trade is based,the whole of the export crop has to be moved with New York exchange. In the course of lime the increase of di rect exports of cotton will remove this tithe which New York levies upon the south. Larger exports have already brought the southern cotton houses into closer business relations with the European capi talists and the entering wedge of direct trade has been driven home. Nothing shows this so plainly as the Scares. In 1888-89 New Or leans sent to foreign ports L 489,- 487 bales, and" in 1S89-90 she sent 1,840,597. Galveston increased her exports from 2S2,223 bales to 446,- 73k Savannah ran hers' up from 323,879 to 531,419, andBrunswick’s exportation increased from 84,970 to 117,945. Willmington and Nor folk showed a slight increase while Mobile and Charleston together showed a decrease of 20,000 bales. Thus in one year the exports from eight leading southern ports have increased 736,000 bales. The total exportation of cotton from the ports of Texas, Louisans, Alabama, Florida, Georgia, South Carolina, North Carolina and Vir ginia for the past year was 3.S41, 407 bales, worth 8150,000,000. This gives a magnificent founda tion for foreign trade, and the won der is that with so mnch to trade on we have not gone to headquar ters before. The Financial Chronicle accounts for the increase of southern ex ports by the statement that the in terstate commerce law has been much more rigorously enforced within the last eighteen months and the short haul alone prevents rail routes from making rates low enongh to com pete wit h. short rail and Jong water routes. Be this as it may, anything which tends to nromote direct exports from the southern states does that mnch toward laying the foundation for direct trade between these states and Europe. Added to this, western products are beginning toloox to southern ports for competitive outlets, so that they" may not be at the mercy of northern east-bound railways. Kansas City capital is interested in a short route through Memphis, over the Macon and Birmingham road to Georgia ports? and theie are rumors of a great trunk line from Chicago. The tide of com merce is setting toward the south as 5 never has before. Now is an auspicious : time for a concerted ef fort for direct trade. The condi tions of commerce are ripe for it words. Single speeches delivered in the usual tone and at the cus tomary rate of speed were readily taken. The words of the speaker were repeated into the mouthpiece of the phonograph by an operator talking into the machine in a low tone of voice, which is further muf fled by the surroundings of the ap paratus. As a matter of conve nience the reporter has two ma chines at hand, as the cylinders of each can be more readily handled if they are constructed to contain 1,000 words only, and by having two instruments he does not even have to stop to change the cylin- j ders. He is, in fact, an oral sten ographer. The report is trans cribed by a typewriter, who site at the typewriting machine with the tubes which connect with another phonograph to which the cylinder has been transferred at his ears. The copyist can regulate the speed of utterance, repeat a passage, or go back to correct an involved sen tence as if he followed the copy with his eye. The extent to which the use of the phonograph is growing is a surprise to most people. Five hundred instruments are in use in the transaction of current business in New York city alone, and one firm engaged in taking messages to a large extent, employs more than a score of the machines in the place of twice that number of stenographers. It was stated at the convention above referred to that nearly every committee of congress employed the phono graph, and that the official report ers of the House of Representa tives had taken up its use. There are more than forty companies in different parts of the country en gaged in inducing the use of it The bulk of human and artifi cial hair, and in fact of hair goods, is imported, about ninety per cent in fact Of the the two, human hair is the most called for. “Hair- raising” is a sort of industry in Europe. The peasant girls, whp are much in the air, get their heads cropped once a year, and thus fur nish a portion of the supply. They are satisfied with a stipend so small that an American woman wonld scorn to touch six times its value. Of the material imported, France" supplies half the trade, and England and Germany divide the rest The raw material finds its way here in great quantities and is made up on this side of the water. The business is young yet in this country. People speak of black hair, but there is no such thing. The dark est hair, at best, is but dark brown, as will be seen by a separate test of each shred. The darkest hair is common to the Chinese race. This is used to a large extent in this country in cheap work. The best blonde hair comes from Swe den. Medium shades are best se cured in Russia. The best grades of all qualify come from France. The durability of hair is little understood. If properly preserved, hair will last forever. An instance recently came to light through the press of a peculiarity of hair. A lady had been buried about a year. It was finally determined to move the body. When the remains were unearthed, the flesh had all decay ed; but the hair had so grown that the coffin was full It has been found, however, that such hair is not durable; it is brittle, and with out vitality. Considered from the standpoint of her head, woman is, to say the least, peculiar. Symrna the Beautiful. London Daily 2?<rws. Here are some striking facts about Smyrna.

To be sure cannibalism is pursued in a desultory way elsewhere, but tts devotees woald prefer kid, kan garoo, monkey, cockato and snakes, and eat the human kind only when hungry from the lack of their usual game. But the Solomon Islanders will eat a tough sailor, a hardened trader; or even one of their own tribe in a mere spirit of wanton gormandizing, when th a y are ter from starvation and other meat is plenty. They have just had a barbecue consisting, with the usual side dishes, of Lars Neilson, a Norwegian trader, and his three native assistants. They have eaten six white men within the past few months and are real ly transacting about all the genu ine cannibal business at present being done. • « Atlanta Constitution: Clarkson, who has just resigned from the postoffiee department, has given the democrats pointers in removals. He had been in office eighteen months, and for every day of that period he removed sixteen demo cratic postmasters. The Hudson Bay Company is selling off its lands in the north west, and dividing the proceeds among "the stockholder®. Mild winters and changes in the fash-, ions have depreciated the value of the furs in its domain, and dealers have large quantities on hand. The company’s lands, however, are increasing in value, being in de mand for settlement power within her and had any de sire for the part. All that is nec essary is sympathy, patience and personal magnetism—of which there is a good deal more than the possessors usually suppose. The patient should be stretched out at length on a comfortable so fa or bed, and her head placed in an easy position. The minister ing angel should take her stand be hind the patient and place her hands on the latter’s forehead, with her finger tips touching in the center. The hands must then be drawn back to the sufferer’s tem ples with an even, regular, sooth ing motion, which should be con- tinned ten or twelve minutes with out intermission. If the palms grow too warm they may be dip ped in water, but should be thor oughly dried before the massage treatment is resumed. It is wonderful what a sooth ing, comforting effect th>s has. Some people possess the magnet ism, or whatever it may be called, in a much greater degree than oth ers, and the writer knows of half a dozen women who can cure a se rious case of nervous headache in fifteen or twenty minutes.

The Turk is the incubus. As a commercial port Smyrna the Beau- tifal has several great advantages over Constantinople, but so long as the Turk blocks the way the vast development of which Smyrna is capable will be retarded, ft is the same all over the Mediterra nean andBlacksea coasts.
