Twenty-two years ago there lived in a small lown in Texas a respectabiu family named Paine. A son was boru mid christened Ransom. Not long afterward Mr. Paine had a fight with a man named Wynir; wh bore several aliases and was worsted Teiigenee.

The boy was sleep ing in the crib in the mother's room, near an open window. She was forced to leave the room for a few minutes, and upon her return was horrified to find the crib empty.

Sometimes"", feel more like shouldering my musket than I did in 1801. The causes of the low price oi cotton now is the money power of the .torld trying to grind the laboring class to powder. The farmers have said some things about the Wall Street's Ring, and they are showing the power that our defective laws give them. Ve know they are corrupt, for whole some laws never make so many mil lionaires in so short a time. The far mers of the bouth must learn to take are of themselves. I would say to che cotton farmers of the South wxt year to teach the gamblers a lesion by s-very one buying as many; bales of futures as he would make and then plant his land in corn. We can buy cotton for less than we can! make it. We must manage to get the speculator jut of the cotton business, j We pay too many commissions. Weselltoour iionie merchants, they sell to some commission' merchant, and he to the manufacturner who spins and weaves it, and then sells the product to the jobber and he to the merchant. We sell it for 0 or 7 cents per jibund and buy it back at 0 or z j cents per pound or even more. We should sell direct to the manufacturer, and then we can't hardly stand our hand. With the low price of cotton now, the manufacturers have formed a trust and forced the price of plaids up and makes us pay 5 or 5 cents per yard and it would intake sieve bottoms. The reason the farmers have all other classes to fight in our finan cial trouble is that no other! class can expect the cotton farmer feels it so sensibly as they do. A few years ago a bale Of cotton would bring fifty or sixty dollars and now it brings twenty five to thirty dollars and costs as much to produce it now as then, j But the merchant don't reduce his profits, the lawer and the doctor their fees, or the m " i 1 f .

Without further remon strance t'ne engineer started the loco motive, and tiie big iron horse was soon speeding down the track at a tre mendous pace, Butler standing watch in hand timing the distance between the mile posts. It was "a terrific pace for those days and the run was made in total dark ness. Just belore midnight the lights of the capital were discerned in the distance, and two miuutesJaier the engine came shrieking into' the sta tion, just five minutes before the time scheduled for the departure of the Bal timore express. "Well done, my man," said Butler, as he slapped the engineer upon the back and jumped upon the station platform. "The new regulations are revoked and the old ones renewed." Butler sprang into a waiting car riage and was quickly whirled to the wiwte house. President Lincoln was aroused and Montgomery. Blair and Capt.

It is remarkable how much time is wasted by young girls, and in many cases by older ones too, iu prac ticing, just for the want of a little .superintending care on the mother's or sister's part. A mother may not know much about nuisic, but she can see when her child piactices with a bad disposition of the hand; she can 1 when the child rattles away at a rate of speeil which causes her to flounder about, to break down every four meas ures. This much nny mother knows to be wrong, and could remedy by some daily attention to her child s practice. It is almost impossible for the most painstaking teacher to ad vance a pupil who comes for a lesson, say once a week, and who practices wrong from ten to twelve hours a week. One hour a week is not sulli cient to undo what has been acquired n twelve hours ot bad practice. Mu s cal Visitor. , Children Cry for Pitcher's Castorial "What in the oral?'1 he asked.
