The negro's worst enemy is the poor wh'te man the man who works in the lumber business or In the field for daMy wages, and the man who has to rent land and work it himself. He feels that th negro is in his way, and he is. While at the hotel in Clinton, a prosperous Kentucky town, I listened to the drummers talk about the negroes. Most of these drummers were from the North. They were sociable, pleasant gentlemen and have convictioua and dare to express them A Chicago man said : "I have traveled ail over the South, and like your people; but I tell you, you will never catch us until you tret rid of the negro. He is your dead weight. You don't farm right, nor work right. You sleep too late. Your far mers come to town too much. Why I see thia little town of Clinton througed with country people to-day just because it is county court day. Our people don't do that. Up North you can't tell a court day from any other day. Now, if you could uet ri i of the negro, and put the working German in his plac they woud make more stuff on one acre than you make on two. Why don't your people net up sooner and work harrier?" A big whiskered countryman who had been a silent listener, spoke up in a solemn voice ai.d said, "We don't have to." The answer surprised the Northern man very much, aud pet him back for a moment, but hrt rallied and said, "We 1 know you dont have to, t ut, my friend don't you want to make s:rn and p-'tat ?. than you do?" "I "lot, 't," said the solemn man. "Potatoes are ten cents a bush el now, uiid corn is twenty five. Wl at do we want with any more. There's too much now. The price won't pay for the hauling it to the railroad; aud if your Germans were down here and doubled the supply, sMiff wouldn't bring any thing,' Hut the Chicago man rallied at.aiu end said : "But you must admit that the Northern iarmrs are managed better than yours. You can't help hut see that as you travel through our country. The Germans are splendid farmers." 'Splendid." said the solemn man, and if you could pick 'em, it would be all riht, but they arrf mixed uowerfullv mixed Our niegers have kept fnrriners away from here, thank God, and that s about all the use we ve tjot for 'em. But as betwixt the nigger and your lawless set of furriners and anarchists and tramps and thieves, I'll take the nigger every time. I don t want to have to lock up and hide and stand guaid over everything I've got. My friend, you don't understand our peo ple. e have an idea that there are bigger things in this world than money." After a pause in the conversation a New lork man put iu and said : 'Well I'm a traveling man too, and my trade has been more We.-t than South till the past two years, and I tell you I have beeu uudeceiv ed. The Southern people don't -how up like the Northern peo ple especially, in their modes of I'armintr. But. let ins tell you, the Northern farmers are fearfully iu debt. The farmers don't own the farms not half of them. They are covered all over with mortagages from New York to Kansas. Boston owns Kansas pretty much, and don't dare to sell ber out, for there are no buyers, It is a loinmon trick in Kansas and Io ra for a man to borrow two thousand dollars on a farm that was not worth a dollar more than than that. Tne agents of these Eastern syndicates that had millions of dollars to lend, ot a liberal commission on everv dollar they loaned, and so aftr the farmer hid already got all it was worth be wanted to get more, and he would go to the tax assessor aud say : "1 see you have got my farm down at two thousand dollars. It is worth every dollar of four thousand. I don't want my farm slandered in any such away" And so the assessor would put him down at four thousand dollars, and he would tro to the money king and say, "I want to get another two thousand dollars on my land," and he would pull out his tax receipts and show them, and get some more money. "Well, after his notes fell due he didn't care a cent. He had virtually sold bis farm for more money than it was worth, and the money king let him stay for he had rather he would stay and take care of the pla?e than not. I know of hundreds of sucn casefl. New England monev ' is locked up themili- lions, but in the last few years they are turning their alien tiou to the South and find a better neonle to deal with and a more inviting for investment. The North is at last opening her eyes and soes the South In a different light, and I be lieve that a better time is coin ing." The solemn man had straigh teued up and said, "My frieud you talk to please me. Talk some more." This reminds me of a letter I had in my pocket a letter about the Confederate monu ment that the Maryland boys built at Gettysburg. That monument is the dead com rades who are buried there, and that the Abe Patterson post of the Grand Army of the Re public ordered to be moved. Here it is : Sandy Lake, Pa., Dear Brother Akp I was reading your letter and noticed your remarks about that monu ment. I was on the field last September and saw the mono meat and didn't hear any un kind remarks made about it by the boys in blue, and I thought how pleasant it was that the time had come when the graves of the blue and gray could be marked together where they fought and fell for the cause they thought was right. But, alas ! it looks like death will only close the bitter contention. Surely no refined mind would make a fuss about such a thing. I km a Republi can and a Northern man, but I feel like we; were all of one country and ought to love one another, so I call you Brother Arp. I have picked a sprig of gold en rod that grew at the base of that monument and I send it in this letter to Mrs. Arp in re membrance of that monument and as a token of my good will and esteem. Yous truly, James Yaxxey. Oh, for a thousand such let ters from the boys in blue. Bill Arp. THE BEST WAY. The Man cr Woman Who Locks Back Suffers Accordingly "One day," said Geueral Gresham, in a recent interview with Eli Perkins, "I met an old soldier who had been wounded iu the face, am when I asked him in what battle he was In jured, he said, "I got it the first day at Shiloh, sir." '-But how could you ket hit in the face at Shiloh ?" I asked. "Well, sir," .-aid he, half apologetically, "after I had run a mile or two I got rareless, and looked back." This story reminds me of how one of Ellsworth's Fire Zou ave's killed his first Confeder ate, lie said that he marc' ed out to the battle of Bull Run, and wheu about lml f way there he met a Johnny lieb in am bush. "What did you do then?" I asked. "Well, sir," he auswer ed, "I drew out my revolver, and he drew out his bowie knife, and then I took the lead from the start and kept it clear into Washington City, and " "But how did you kill the man?" "Run him ts death, sir," was the reply. UJTSEE THE CEUST- The Milk of Human Kindness ot Yet Frozen "You'd better ask the doctor for his bill next time he comes," said a poor, sick minister to his wife, "I don't know whfci? we can pay it, I'm sur. He's made a good many visits, but I hope he won't have to come many times more." The old doctor was a tmm looking person, who said as little as possible, and spoke in the gruffest of tones ; but he had kept his eyes, and was not half as unfeeling as he appear ed. At his next visit the minis ter's wife followed him out of the sick room, and timidly pre ferred her request. "Your bill ?" said the doctor, ulancing round the kitchen and then down at his boots. "Ye., sir," said the woman; "Mr. Ames wanted me to ask you for it, though we can't pay it just now. We'll pay it as soon as " "Well, here it is," said the doctor. And he took out his pocket book and handed the as tonished woman a ten-dollar greenback, and was out of doors before she could say thank you.

McDonald, of Cabarrus, waswardedX?0Premln,n at the State Fair for trie Dest yield of wheat on five acres. His yield was 177 bushels. Capt. Jack H. Finch, an old Vance county premium tobac co grower, now of Wilson county, sold yesterday at Coop er's warehouse about 2,500 worth of fine tobacco, averaging for four best trades $66.53 and for crop round $42,00. Capt. Finch always made it good here, and he ia doing the same in his new home. Wilson county beginners ire lucky iu having 'such an expert tobac conist in their midst. His crop will bring liim about $4,000. Henderson Tomahawk. The Commissioner of Agri culture in his annual report says : In the history of no nation have been such a thirst for knowledge ou the part of the great masses of the people, such high and just apprecia tion of its value, and such wide reaching, successful, and popu lar schemes for self-education; never before has the great agricultural public beeu so willing and indeed so anxious, to receive with respect with intelligence the information which science offers ; never has science had so much to give. In Eastern Carolina'speciil ly there is an observable waut of email grain crops It is clear to any one that during a year of great scarcity as next year promises to be, a lare grain crop is desirable It is a fact that in this country there has not been breadstuff made to support the people a year. The consequence inns'; be that a kfreat part of the bread used for the next ten months will have to come from other fields. Now, it seems to us that it will be a wise thing in every farmer throughout this country to sow wheat, rye and oats to sup plement the short crops Scot land Neck Democrat A contemporary in rebukim: a boastful Maiue farmer for his brag of raising 738 bushels of Irish potatoes on one acre of ground, refers to the fact that once in Asheville some one within its corporate limits, on the same area, raised 1,100 bushels. That was the fact, but "alas for the rarity" of it. It was never done but once, neither was Mr. Woodfin's feat of raisiiiK 136 bu-hels of corn to the acre ever repeated. The more shame fur it; what man has done, man may do, and instead of an average of 80 to 90 bushels of oue crop, and 12 or 24 of the other, the averages might be made every year to approximate those lare num bers which stand ou record to amaze or to encourage in whatover spirit they are looked on.

Hews From the National Capital From ourEegalar Eeporter. Ex-Speaker Carlisle is just now about the busiest man in Washington. A few days ago he thought that the Republicans of the House committee on Rules; Messrs Reed McKinley and Cannou-would not dare re port the Rule to the House giving the Speaker authority to declare a quorum present when ever the necessary number of members are in the Hall, whether they vote or not, which rumor said they had decided upon ; but now he has learned something that makes him believe they will, and he is hard at work gathering material to make the fight of his life agaiust such au iniqui tous Rule. It is particularly unfortunate that Air Carlisle's democratic colleague Ex Speaker Randall continues too unwell to give Mr Carlisle much assistance in the fight that he proposes to make, first before the committee on Rules, then before the House, and lastly before the court?. Mr Carlisle thinks the passage of such a Rule by the republicans of the House would be as great a usurpation of power as Oliver Cromwell was guilty of wheu he closed the English parlia ment by force, arnl that such a Rule would be a violation of sacred rights guaranteed by the Constitution of the United States. It is needless to say that Mr Carlisk; will be ably supported by :Vury demo crat in the House in fighting a Rule that would give Speaker Reed as much power over legis lation as is possessed by the Czar of Russia. This is a free couutry and minorities have rinhts that mut bo respected. Representative Sei:ey, of Ohio, left here Christmas day i'or home to take part in the Senatorial fight. Judge Seney is a caudidatt.. but he has not a word to say against any of the other cand dates, all ot whom are his personal friends. The Judge bays he has no bar rel to tap, but that he is in the fight to stay until it is ended. If the democratic members ot the Unsted States House of Representative hud to decide the matter there would be no doubt of Judge Seney's elec tion. Public opinion here etill believes that. Mr Br ice will win, but it is by no meana as un animous as it was several weeks ago. Rightfully or wrongfully the election of Mr Brice will give the republican newspapers an opportunity to cry "boodle," which they will not neglect, hence mauy democrats that personally favor to Mr Brice are hoping that a pour mau may capture the prize. Senator Windoni has a grand opportunity to show what he is made of wheu he comes to award the exclusive right of taking seals in Alaskan waters for twenty years from May 1, 1890. The advertisement in viting proposals is now out and the proposals will be ofeued January 23, 1890. For the last twenty years this right has been held by the Alaska Fur company, ana every member of that organizitiou has be come millionaire, in ways that the least said abuut them the better. This same company will expect to renew their con tract, and from the time given by Secretary YViudoin from the date of the advertisement to the opening of the proposals less than oue mouth it looks as though Mr Windom were not averse to its doing so. Mr II irrison is said to favor the nomination of Mr Blaine in 1892. If Mr Harrison wants to side-track Mr Biaiuo effectually he has only to make this fact officially, known. For some reason or other the people of this country have never taken kindly io admiuistratiou candi dates of any kind, aud there is no reason iu tho world why an exception should be made for Mr Blaine. It is only an anti-ll'irrison candidate that Mr Blaine could get the nomi nation. "Whom the gods would de stroy they first make mad' The republican leaders, in spite of protests froia members of their own party, have deter mined that the House Election committee shall report a Federal election bill to the House. It will never become a law many republicans will oppose it. How the democrats feel about it may be understood from the follwing remarks made by Senator I'uuh :" It will be impossible to pass such a bill. As f.r myself, I will remain iu uiy ceat night and day for weeks to prevent the Senate from passing such a bill and all of the other democrats Senators will do the same This is the most vicious of all the republican attempts to violate the constitutional rights of the States, and it will be resisted to the last by the democrats.
