GEOEGIA LEATHER. AINESVILLE, Ga December C 'here are several considerations to he weighed chen ono contemplates the inception of a lusmess enterprise, whether it be the making f shoes, the manufacture of cotton goods the anmng of leather or anything elso, and these must he considered in their proper relation to he kind of business it is proposed to emr bark in This is peculiarly the case in the shoe ona eather business It is necessary first of a'li hat one he in easy access of the hark of the mountain oak or "chestnut" oak, as it is some- imes called, for the cheaper one can get this .esirable hark for tanning purposes, the heaper can he make the leather and con- versely, the cheaper the leather, the cheaper he shoe or harness It is to this factor of bark that I would call attention Surrounding the little city of Gaines- ville on nearly all Bides are blue mountains hat dip and curl in crested grandeur, and lave caused the outside world to appropri- ately name her "the queen of the Piedmont egion But aside from their beauty, these mountains contain an almost inexhaustible upply of the bark of the aforementioned 'chestnut '-oak, which ia the very best on H earth for purposes of tanning, and can be lought on the streets here at from to per cord At the tanneries farther north the cost of his bark ranges from to per cord The [uestion of tiansportation need not be cone'd ered for almost ery mountaineer will de iver it to the tanyards at the above figures .n this item of bark alone, the advantage iamesville has over her northern competitors is, therefore, obvious Another consideration in the tanning of eather is a supply of pure, free- tone water for the vats Leather cannot be made to perfection with any other kind of water, and if there Js anything that this "land the sky" can boast of it is as rystal, dripping from moss grown ledges ehere the public foot hath never trod, pure aa hat which gushed from the rock when Moses mote it with his rod at the Lord's command Chere is water here in sufficient quantity to run all the tanyards of the world and then e a residue of several oceans It will be eon, then, that the two principal ingredients necessary for tho conversion of hides into either, i e bark and water, are here in abundance But there is yet another consider atiou in the making of leather It is ime There runs through Hall nearly through the middle if vein of pure, blue imostone of the very best quality, and I have ieard from those who know w hereof they speak that the supply is simply immense, and ;hat it can be quarried at a small cost Lime "rom this vein of which the Deal" is a fair specimen, has been tested and has proven first- grade for fertilizing and mortar making It must, therefore, be first class for tanning jurposes Having set forth the facts that Gainesville close to unlimited supplies of the best mountain oak bark has an almost inexhausti- ale supply of the purest freestone water, and a iioambility of obtaining at a minimum cost a arst-class article of lime, is it not reasonable to suppose, from the very nature of things, that she will soon be a worthy rival of her northern Bister and herself be called "Lynn of the The only remaining consideration is that of the raw material to operate hides These will, of course, have to Tw shipped here when the shoe factories come to be as numer- ous and have reached tho proportions that they should Agreatnaanv cattle are, how- ever, raised hereahonts. and the hides hronght to market are as good for tnding purposes as the silver dollars ot Uncle Sam, which the sturdy mountaineers are said never relin- quish till the eagle screams and flutters and scratches the hand As regards climate, the United States signal service is authority for the statement, from daily observations taken here that the mean winter temperature is only 44 degrees afaren- heit Dr Bailey, a resident phyacan of na- tional reputation, hassaia that "the percentage of rainy days is much smaller than in northern latitudes "and that "the people enjoy almost complete immunity from severe cold Asa summer resort, Gainesville has been favorably known for several years These facts may be readily tested oy the skeptical, and those who are engaged m the shoe and leather industrv at thia place are increasing their plants yearly to accommo- date their rapidly growing trade At present the demand for "Gamepvi lie-made" shoes, leather and harness far exceeds the supply, and though the factories are running full time, and are using nothing hut the latest improved machinery, they are behind with orders nearly a month Prominently among those who are en- in the manufacture of shoes and leather, I would mention the J G Hynds Manufacturing Company The Mr Hynds of the nrm has the reputa- tion of being the biggest little man" in all north Georgia The shoe factory of this con- cern, facing the track of the Gainesville, Jefferson and Southern railroad, is fireproof, and is fitted up with the latest improved machinery throughout and has an output of pairs of shoes per day These shoes are sold all the way from Virginia to Texas, and the demand for them is BO great that the con- cern will soon have to double their capacity if they would keep up with orders The old factory ouilding of the firm is used as a leather finishing establishment in connection with their tanyard, which is a short distance west of the new factory Shelly Wood, whose shoe factory is located on. Main street, near the depot of the Richmond and railroad, employ twenty five skilled workmen, and the products of this plant ire unexcelled as regards beauty of workmanship and finish The Mr Shelly of the firm IB an expert shoe- maker, and as superintendent of the factory makes things) fairly hum Mr Wood does not give the business his personal attention, he being the efficient postmaster at Gainesville, There is a great future for Gainesville as a shoe maraet, and I know of no more inviting field for the capitalist than her leather indus- try, which is as jet in its infancy Already she claims to be the second largest shoe producing pity south of Baltimore Keep your eve on her shoe, leather and harness in dustnes MARK A CANDLEK LEMON Dr Mozlev's Lemon Elixir positively cures all bilhousnesa, constipation, indigestion all nick and nervous headaches, kidney disease dizziness, loss of appetite, fevers, chills, pal, pitation of heart, and all other diseases caused bv disordered liver, stomach and kidneys, the first great cause of all fatal diseases CO eta and 00 per bottle, at druggists Prepared only by Dr H Mozley, Atlanta, Ga X.emon Rot Drops.
