Wine Industry Is Profitable.
Americus Times-Recorder: Never be
fore has such a magnificent crop of grapes
been grown in the vineyards about Amer

this luscious fruit to good account. In
some of the vineyards about town the
yield of grapes of the finer varieties will
amount to several tons, and already the
fruit is being converted into wine. Sever
al thousand gallons of excellent wine will
be made right here within the next two
weeks, and the price received for it later
will pay the producers handsomely.

A Victim of Snnutroke.
E. M. Bakfr of Albany was the victim
of sunstroke Thursday and is in a criti

into the country he seemed to be in the
best of health and spirits, but just as he
reached the entrance to the steps that
lead up to his office, he reeled and fell to
the pavement. Several people were stand
ing near enough to see him fall, nnd
they rushed to him at once. Mr. Baker
came to Albany from Norfolk, Vh„ about
two monlhs ago, and hns made many
friends. This is the first case of sunstroke
that has occurred in Albany in many
year* and it is thought that Mr. Baker's
having recently come from a cooler cli
mate had something to do with his hav

mining going on before in Lumpkin coun

rapidly increasing and the place has now
become the center of attraction to people
in all parts of the country. We were
shown last Saturday a nugget of gold
found on the Baggs Branch property some
day* ago by "Dug" Bryson. It was dis
covered on an old gravel pile and weighs
twenty-two grains. It is gold from a rich
vein which has never been discovered yet.
They keep on prospecting, and some of
these days they will strike it, and from
the large amount of rich deposit mining
already done, the vein w’hich feeds the
same is certainly very rich and the owner
will have a big bonanza.

Horse Jumped Into the Sen.
Th* rescue of a valuable horse that in
a moment of fright jumped over the sea
wall into the river was a problem that
had to be solved in a hurry at St. Augus
tine Thursday afternoon. Abe Sanders,
who drives one of the double teams of
the Transfer Company, had gone in the
office about 2 o’clock to report. Whi'e
he was in the office his team started down
the street. So many people shouted for
the team to stop that the horses became
frightened and ran away. Just before
reaching the seawall the team parted from
the carriage. At the seawall a high
spirited and valuable mare cleared it an I
plunged into the river nearly ten feet
below’. Its partner remained on terra
flrmn. The mare was in about four feet
of water. U did not attempt to move,
and looked piteously at the crowd on the
seawall. How to rescue the animal was
a problem in which scores of people ad
vanced theories. It was finally decided to
lasso the mare, put two good oarsmen In
a strong boat, with another man to hoi 1
the halter, and attempt to swim the ani
mal down the river three-quarter* of a
mile and land on the bank north of the
fort. The feat was finally put into execu

work. The mare was not seriously in

Jacksonville, Fla., July 20.—There will

the Atlantic, Valdosta and Western Rail

it was thought that the Plant System

ed by Judge VY. B. Owen, one of the city's
most progressive, citizens, and a man of
means, has made many very liberal offers
to the city. This company agrees to
equip the lines with the newest and most
improved cars, and to run a ten-minute
schedule (the present being a fifteen
minute cue). It will give the city 5 per
cent, of its gross receipts from the start,
and allow the city to purchase its plant

of the five years one-fourth of

MANCHU AND CHINESE.
Tle Racial Division In It* Relation
to Contemporary Event*.
Letter in New York Sun.
If it be true, as is now generally be
lieved, thnt the foreign ministers have
been murdered at Pekin, it will not be
the first time that the Chinese have been
guilty of such outrages. In fact, the
Manchu dynasty, of which the Emperor
Kwangsu is the present representative,
owes its origin in part to the murder of
an ambassador in the early part of the
In 1618 Noorhachu, Prince of the Man
chu tribe of Tartars, declared war
against Waulch of the Ming dynasty,
then Emperor of China. He issued a proc
lamation known in Chinese history as
"the proclamation of the Seven Hares,”
because it contains seven reason.* for his
hostility, one of which was that the Chi
nese had murdered his ambassador. "For
these reasons." said Noorhachu. "I hate
with all intense hatred and now’ make
war on you." In the course of this war
Noorhachu captured Li-on-Yang, the cap
itol of the Chinese province of Li-on-ting.
The garrison was massacred io a man.
and the people of the lowji were required
to shave their heads In token of submis
sion to- their conqueror.
Boulger. in his history of China, says:
"This is the first historical reference to
a practice that is now universal in Chino,
and that has become what might be called
a national characteristic. The badge of
of conquest has changed to n mark of na
tional pride, bm it is strange to find
that the Chinese themselves, and the most
patient Inquirers among sinologues are
unable to say what was the origin of the
pigtail. They cannot tell us whether shav
ing the head was ho national custom of
the Manchus, or whether Noorhachu only
conceived the happy idea of distinguish
ing those w’ho surrendered to his power
among the countless millions of the long
haired people of China. All that can be
said of the origin of the pigtail is that it
was first enforced :is a badge of subjuga
tion by the Manchus tit the siege of Li
on-Yang, and that thenceforward, until
the whole of China was conquered, it w’us
made the one condition of immunity from
No rhaebu kept tip a successful war
.against China until his death in 1626. His
son and successor, TaPscng, prosecuted
the war w th v gor. and a f ter overrunn ng
the gre ter part of the provinces of Shan
ty and Pechihli, was about to at ack the
city of Pekin, when ho di*d in 1613. He
was succeeded by his son Cbuntche. dur
ing whose minority Prince D~ugun, broth
er of Tei s ng. ae ed as regent. Under
Ms administration Pi k n was captured,
and the young Krnp ror was inaugurat
ed in that f i y with great pomp and c r
emony The capture of Pekin w’as fol
-1 w and by the subjugation of the southern
provinces, and the last Ming Emperor,
Feu Wang, put an end to himself and his
dynasty by suicide at Nankin.
The Manchus of that day. though com
paratively Insignificant in numbers, were
not only bettor soldiers but shrewder
n than the Ch'nose. Thev owed
t.-,elr triumph as much to their success in
bribing and corrupting the Chines** gen
e als as to their su/urlori y in arms. When
a rebel chief brought 100,9 0 of Ills fol
lowers* to the Manchu standard. Tahsong
aid to him: "No thought of r* grot j-hould
enter your Iv art at passing into my ser
vice With the help of (Sol, I hop* t>

if I succeed there are no h nors or ri he*
to w hich y< u cannot look forward if you
Ferve me faithfully." Such promts s at
tracted many adventurers. At the same
time, Tait o-g rpired no jains to make
himself pc pillar in the terrl ories his arm

people, established schools in which Chi

examinations. i:nd b* stcwvd mllita y art !
civic dignities on the natves who at ach

t on to ell this he profess and h mself ale
-1 evvr in the doctrines of Confucius, and
even his encmi s were obliged to admit
that his practice conformed much more
• o the teachings of thfir great sage than
that cf th- Ming Emperor. For nearly
Xour hundred years the Manchu dynay
lias maintained itself on the throne of
During that time the two races, the
Man hus and the Ch nese, have remained
disiir.c . The Manchus as the conquering
race have asserted and maintained a cer
tain superiority over the Chinese. The
principal cities are garrisoned by Manchu
troops, in which no Chinaman is allowed
to Serve. Rear Admiral lAtrd Charles
Bertsford, who inspected the Chinese
armies in 1&98 says: "The military forces
are divided, some are Manchu and some
are Chinese. The Manchu forces are quite
exclusive, no Chinese serving in their
ranks, but the Chinese armies have some
Manchus among them. The armies in the
north and about Pekin are nearly all
commanded by Manchu princes. The Man
chu armies are supposed to be 1700UO
strong, but there is no Manchu army ef
li.'ient either in drill, discipline or organ
ization throughout the Empire.”
Eord Beresford declares that the best
armed, best-drilled and besl-disciplined
army that he saw in China was that of
Gen. Yuan Shi Kei, a Chinaman com
manding Chinese troops. Reports from
China says that this General is inclined to
co-operate with Li Hung Chang and the
southern viceroys in maintaining peaceful
relations with foreign nations, and in the
preservation of order and the protection
ot foreigners in China. Li Hung Chang
is also a Chinaman. On the other hand,
Prince Tuan, we know, is a Manchu, and
it may be owing to the fact that, as Lord
Beresford says, nearly ail the armies
around Pekin are commanded by Manchu
princes, that the government has found it
impossible to usq these Manchu forces for
the purpose of putting down the Boxers
and protecting the foreigners in Pekin.
it may be that these Manchu princes are
the Bourbons of China. They have ruled
over China so long that they have become
impatient of any interference from the
outside world. The recent efforts of Eu
ropean nations to secure parts of the ter
ritory of China have alarmed them for the
security of the empire, and they may have
determined that they might as well light
for it now as allow it to be taken away
from them piecemeal. In this view of
the ease the Boxers with their religious
and anti-foreign fanaticism may appear to
them us allies that should be welcomed
and utilized. If Prince Tuan and his
party have determined to set aside the
present Emperor and place the Prince's
son upon the throne, he may have decided
that the shortest and surest way to ac
complish this object is to start a revolu
tion bused upon, the principle of China for
the Chinese and extermination for the
The evident disinclination of Li Hung
Chang to obey the frequent and pressing
summons that have been sent him to come
to Pekin seems lo corroborate the sup
position that the controlling powers there
are hostile to the outside world. It has
been chiefly through his influence that the
southern provinces of China have up to
this time remained quiet. To get him
away from Canton is in the first place to
release the insurrectionary spirit in that
district, and in the second to break up the
conneciion that he has formed with the
other viceroys in the interest of peace
and order. Once in Pekin he wdli be at
the mercy of the ruling party there, and
no man knows better than Li Hung
Chang what that means. He must either
make common cause with them or pay
Hie panaky with his life. The men who
have not hesitate-d to brave the vengeance
of the civilized world by the murder of
its representatives will speedily dispose of
Li Hung Chang if he dares raise his
voice against what they have determined
iilKjn. Li Hung Chang has been called the
Bismarck of China. Bismarck's life sur
vived his influence, but Li Hung Chang
may lost both if he goes to Pekin.

Why the Onion ‘‘Smells” So,
From Chambers' Journal.
It is interesting to make inquiry into
the cause of this unfortunate quality of
the onion. It is simply due o the pres
ence in some quantity of another mineral
matter in the bulb—sulphur. It is this
sulphur that gives the onion its germ
killing property and makes the bulb sa
very useful a medical agent at all times,
but especially in the spring, which used
to be—ar.d still is in many places—the
season for taking brimstone and treacle
in o d-fashioned houses, befora sulphur
tab'ets came into vogue.
Now. sulphur when united to hydrogen,
one of the gases of water, forms sulphur
etted hyd. ogen, ard then, becomes a foul
sir.ellicg, well-nigh a fetid compound.
Th‘ onion, teing so juicy, has a very
large percentage of water in its tissues,
and this, combining with the sulphur,
iorms the strongly scented and offensive
subs ance called sulnhurot of allyle.
which is found in all the alliums This
sulphured of allyle mingles more espec
itl'y "l h the volatile or aromatic oil of
the onlcn; it is indrntical with (he mal
ororart 1 rineirle found in asafoetida.
which is almost tlr> symbol of all smells
that are nasty. The horse-radish, so
much I ked with roast heef for its keen
' and hi i K property, nnd the ordinary
mustard of our cables both owe their
strongly stimulative propedtrs to this
sime rulphuret of allyle, which gives
them heat and acridity, hut not an offen
sive smell, owing to the different arrange
ment of the atoms in their volatile oils
This brings us to a most curious fact in
nature, that strangely, yet most
certainly, constructs all vegetable vola
tile oils in exactly the same way—com

CONDITION OF GENERAL TRADE

Mcrnirg News Office, July 20.
The week in commercial circles has
been a satisfactory one in nearly all
branches of trade. Asa general thing the
approach of the busy crop moving sea

wholesale markets, but this does not seem
to be the case this year, or at least, there
Is little complaint from any quarter. The
financial showing continues to be good
from every point of view.
Much interest was directed to the cot
ton market during the w-eek. Being in
fluenced by different conditions the range
was broad, and prices swung up and
down, without much warning to traders.
In some quarters the trade have quietly
decided to await a more settled condition
of affairs, as an evidence of which much

New Y'ork to-day was withdrawals on
bo h sid, s The two great influences which
are affecting the movement of prices most
at present, the disquietude in China and
the condition of the cotton crop, are far
frem being settled one way or the other,
which is cause for hesitancy on the part
of traders. Prices dropped yesterday and
again to-day, the closing being quiet and
steady, v i h prices net unchanged to 8
Attention is being directed to the condi
tion of the sea island crop. It is said
“mains,” or the cotton raised on the
mainland, is not in the best condition,
and that the yield will not be up to what
was expected at the opening of the sea
son. In South Carolina the crop is said
to have suffered. The damage was not so
great in Florida, however. On the islands
the crop is reported to be in prime con
dition, and the outlook good for an abun
A spirited demand during the early
days of the week and a continued upward
tendency were the features of the naval
stores market. The advance in rosins has
been well maintained, and promises to
hold against any ordinary unfavorable
tendency. With turpentine, however, the
upward tendency came to a direct halt
to-day, when the market was posted
"Nothing doing." The price reached 4t%
cents at one time, with the indications
favorable for its maintenance, but condi
tions have since combined to bring a check
in the demand.
The trade attributes the slack in the
demand to the fact that'factors have been
making deliveries quite freely during the
week, which has tended to help buyers
out considerably. In fact, it is stated
that what they have received has about
supplied their demands, without necessi
tating their coming into the market for
anything. This being the case the nat
ural tendency was for the market to drag,
which i: has not failed to do. It is rough
ly estimated that about half of the de
liveries to be made this month, which are
said to be about 30,000 C3sks. have already
been made. The Jacksonville factors who
sold short in this market are understood
to have covered to a considerable extent
during the week, and this also lessons the
demand. Futures are sold for Savannah
delivery only, which necessitates the Jack
sonville factors disposing, of their stuff
there and buying in this market to cover
contracts. This they do in preference to
shipping stuff from there here.
Whether the price is to decline or to
rally and continue upward is a matter of
great interest to the trade everywhere
just now. Factors say they believe the
price will go higher. From the buyers
standpoint, however, it has reached the
limit, and will henceforth drop. It seems
there is not to be any impaediate increase
in the receipts, and if this be true, and is
coupled with a reasonably fair demand,
the price will hold its own, even if it does
not go higher.
Rosins have been firm at the advance
throughout the week. Prices settled down
yesterday at the outside prices, and the
good demand is very encouraging to the
trade. Recessions are not in sight in this
The cotton market closed quiet and un
changed to-day. The week did not bring
any special changes in the market. The
week's receipts were 4,943, and the ex
ports 7,955. The receipts to-day were 614,
against 1 last year. The stock to-day is
10,200 uplands, and 4,160 sea islands. The
trade continues to direct much attention
to crop reports, but the fact the reports
are greatly mixed, coming from various
seclions of the state, makes it next to im
possible to reconcile them so as to arrive
at anything like a correct idea of condi

Rnsinesn Mostly Represents With
drawals on Roth Sides.
New Y’ork, July 20.—Interest in the cot
ton market showed abatement to-day and
a large portion of the business done rep
resented withdrawals by operators from
each side. The course of pendulations was
too erratic to afford bulls or bears mark
ed advantage and increased the timidity
in outside speculative circles caused by
the sensational political news from China.
The opening was easy with first sales
showing a drop of 6 to 11 points. The
weakness did not culminate until August
had fallen to 9.07 c and January B.loc. The
South, the West, the foreign element and'
the room trade all sold freely on the
slump, traders giving special attention to
the August option. The cables received
just after our opening conveyed the im
pression that longs* in Europe were dis
trustful and inclined to unload as a mat
ter of precaution. But with startling
rapidity sentiment in the Liverpool mar
ket swung completely around near the
close and badly frightened shorts here.
Prices advanced with a rush, August
dlimbing to 9.27 c and January to 8.15 c be
fore a breathing spell was taken. Before
midday a partial relapse set in. Rumors
gained circulation to the effect that in
fluential European bulls had formed a
strong clique to bulge the summer months.
This story lacked confirmation, but kept
shorts on the uneasy seat the greater part
of the session. The market closed quiet
and steady, with prices net unchanged to
8 points lower.

New York, July 20.—Murphy & Cos. say.:
Cotton closed in Liverpool ot a net de
cline of t4d on spots (middling uplands
5 2-32d; sales only 3.000 bales. Futures 3-64:1
lower for the t near and 2-64
to 3-64d down on far months.
This market opened weak on early
decline in Liverpool of 7-64 to 8-64d,
old crop, and 2-64 to 3-64d new crops, but
reached some on covering of sales local
and Southern account. With continued
favorable weather over the belt the out
look 4s discouraging to bulls at present
prices, as the statistical strength appears
to be offset by the poor condition of the
dry goods market. However, if any
change in favorable condition the mar
ket is in a position to advance rapluiy.
New Tork. July 20.—Hubbard Bro. *
Cos. say: Liverpool continues to fluetuate
wildly on the old crop positions without
Increasing the demand from spinners in
Lancashire. Opening at a small advance
prices there quickly advanced, closing
steady at three points decline on the near
and one point decline on the distant
months. Our market followed a some
what similar course, August being
pressed for eale during the first hour and
then sharply Influencing the new crop de
liveries. Trading Is on • limited scale,
with sharp changes, which render .

Crop advices are very favorable T'
weather apparently being what the
needs to recover from its low oonat"® 9
on July 1. A favorable Chronicle
is expected to-morrow. Exports , t

came current that a settlement ha 1

SPIRITS TURPENTINE—WhiIe the
turpentine market during most of the
week was in strong position, with the
tendency decidedly upward, the close
brought a change, which is anything but
encouraging for the trade. Free deliv
eries seem to h'ave supplied the demand
to a large extent, thereby causing a dull
ness which imparted a weakness to val
ues. The opening to-day was posted
“nothing doing,” and the closing firm at
43cents, with sales this price of 511
casks. The day’s receipts were 1,714,
sales 511, and exports none.
The receipts of turpentine for the week
were 10,612, against 9,749 last year, and
the exports 5,908, against 6.982 last year.
The exports went to New York, 595;

ROSINS—The rosin market remained in
strong position throughout the week, and
