What Farmers and Merchant) Have to Say
About the L'oudltiou of the Feoj.le Out
Tw o million bushels ! That is the
estimate for one county in Missouri.
Two million bushels and the harvest
has begun. I was a Marshall last
week, the county site of Saline, which
is said to be the richest county in the
State. I was in other counties, and
their eood people boasted in the ac
customed way of their county, and
j claimed that it was the best in the
: State, except Saline. Marshall is a
beautiful little city ot 5,000 people.
; It is embowered in shade and eviron-
ed with beautiful homes. 1 lomes is
the word not fine palatial places to
live in ; not mansions to be afraid of,
but lovely, inviting homes that seem
to speak to you and say, "Come in."
I am awfully afraid of a fine house.
I am afraid I will hurt its feelings, or
or get lost in it, or take the wrong
door or walk through a looking
glass. I was irr one the other day
and thought I saw some people in an
other room. There was a dim re
ligious light, and I can't see very
well no how, and I wondered what
they were doing in there and why they
did not come into the parlor and be
introduced, when suddenly it flashed
upon me that I was looking into a
mirror and saw myself and my
friends who were entertaing me. On
another occasion I was in the library
room, and when I took my departure
I opened a closet door before the
good lady could stop me. It was
full of nice clothes, but I didn't pause
to admire them. Sometimes I get
turned round in a strange place and
would go the wrong way if my judg
ment didn't tell me better. Two mil
lion bushels of wheat forty bushels
to the acre 70 cents a bushel. Just
think of it Missouri is set down for
100,000,000 of bushels. It takes a
pound of flour a day for each man,
woman and child. That is the aver
age. It is the army ration. One
bushel of wheat makes forty pounds
of flour. Nine bushels would make
enough for one person for a year.
Then it will take about 600,000,000
of bushels for all the people of the
United States, and Missouri will
make one-sixth of it. . Resides this
she will make millions of corn and
oats and hay. A banker of Marshall
told me that there was paid out last
winter through his bank over $100,-
000 for apples grown in Saline county
and shipped to the east. Then there
are the hoi ses and mules and cattle
and hogs and sheep that flock the
land wherever you go. I mounted
the stairs of a fine court house and
climbed and climbed until my knees
ached, and from the lofty pannacle I
viewed the landscape o er and leasted
my soul upon its beauty- It was
like a carpet of buff and green mo
aics. "Are your people happy ?" said I
to my tnend. He smiled and an
swered, "They ought to be." Are
you farmers grumbling because they
have no nubbins feed the steers on?"
said I. "Someot them are not con
tent with their lot," he said. "How
about the Alliance and the Sub
Treasury scheme ?" I asked. "Well,
we have the Alliance pretty strong,
but not much of the Sub-Treasury.
Our farmers don't want to borrow
money. They are not in debt in this
region and have no mortgages to
carry except when a man buys more
land and gives a mortgage for part of
the purchase money. Mr. Hall, the
head of the Alliance is in the State,
has j'ust published a general o-der
warning the members to be careful
lest w hile complaining of the govern
ment for robbing them they be se
duced by politicians to become rob
bers themselves." Sam Jones is up
there pitching into both of the old
parties in a very hostile manner. He
said he used to be a Democrat but it
got to be a whisky party and was run
by whisky men and a whisky ring,
and he had quit it and washed his
hands of the old rotten whisky-
dinking concern. Then he looked
around and said :
a grinning at what
"Now, you old
you needent be
I said. I thank
God I never did belong to your old
beer-swellin' party. Whisky will
turn a man into a devil, but beer will
make him steal, and your old party
is a parly of beer and plunder, and
w ill bankrupt the government in four
years or more."
And so the newspapers acuse Sam
Jones of favoring a third party, and
maybe he is. Certain it is the masses
of the people are unsettled, and no
body knows which way the cat is go
ing to jump. Certain it is that the
rising generation has not that affec
tion for the old parties that their fath
ers had, and as for the foreigners
who have come since the war, they
have no attachments at all, and a large
portion are like the Irishman who
was asked about his politics, and he
said : "Faith I don't know anything
about your politics, but I'm agin the
government." Certain it is the old
party leaders are feeding the Alliance
on taffy and both will promise all that
is asked and more, too, but the whole
business is a new game on the chess
board and nobody can tell the result
until the game is ended. Certain it
is that the great army of laboring
men, w ho are jealous and envious of
the rich, are ready for any change
that w ill make them disgorge, and
hence they will combine with the Al
liance to form a new party, notwith
standing it is the farmer's interest to
get more for his produce, and it is the
laborer's interest to pay less. How
they will reconcile all these conflicts
we cannot see. The political pot is
not boiling yet, but it will be in a few
months. If I was an office holder or
an office seeker I would feel a deep
concern ; but as I am neither, I feel
no alarm and no great anxiety. The
damage has been already done and
can't be undone for ten years to come.
The treasury has been emptied to
pay pensions and will stay emptied.
The McKinley high tarift will have to
stand, for it will take it all and more,
too, to run the government. It is
all very bad, but the good old Metho
dist prayer still fits us and is a com
fort, "Oh, Lord, we thank the that it
is as well with us as what it is."
A friend at Marshall wanted me to
move there and said they would fix
me up. "Give me a nice pleasant
home like one of these ?"said I. "Oh,
yes," "A pair of good gentle horses
and a carriage for Mrs. Arp." "Yes,
of course said he." "Garden and or
chard and pasture ground ?" '"Every
thing complete," said he. I ruminated
awhile and looked away off towards
old Georgia and said : "My good
friend, it is home where the heart is
and my heart is down among the
hills of Cherokee. If you had Alad
did's lamp you could not move those
beautiful monntains whose crests are
gilded by the earliest rays of the
morning sun you could not trans
plant the springs and crystal streams
that flow in our valleys. But more
than all of these, my kindred
and the friends of my youth are there,
and the graves of our dead and the
sweet memories of childhood. I am
too old now to get weaned from these
yes to old. We have some good
that you have not. Providence is al
ways kind and happiness is not far
of from every one of us if we will
seek it. It is not in New York or
Washington or across the sea, but . is
by the headstone where affection lin
gers and contentment dwells. Ex
cuse me, my friends, I cannot change
my base, but I will come to see you
sometimes aud you must come to see
us and drink our pure spring water
and breathe our mountain air."
My visit to Missouri was a delightful
one, and nothing marred its pleasure
but a regret that was ever present
the regret that my wife and children
were not with me to enjoy it. How
they would have admired the lux
urious equipment of those fine rail
ways, the Missouri Pacific on the
north both parallel lines from St.
Louis to the west. I went by one
and returned by the other, so as to
pursue more of that beautiful country.
How they would have delighted to
ride on the cable cars of Kansas City,
said to be the most perfect cable in
the world. They traverse the city at
right angles, one series of parallels
being level for five miles and the oth
er series that cross them leaping from
one street to another adown the slops
that remind you of Lynchburg, Va.
The passengers brace themselves for
the steep descent.and it almost makes
you hold your breath with apprehen
sion. If you didn't see every body
riding you wouldn't take the risk for
money. I wanted the grand-children
there to ride them up and down for a
half a day at a time, for it is a splen
Hut they will see enough I reckon
enough before they die enough
of pleasure and of pain. May they
take lile fairly is my prayer. "Carpe
diem" is a good motto enjoy the
day. "Carye diem" enjoy every
day whether at home or abroad, and
be thankful to God for his goodness.

'FINE FEATHERS 10 NOT ALWAYS
MAKE FINE BIRDS,"
ThW U the Story of a Man Who Did Not
Want to Thiuk. It U by Opie P. Head,
Aud U Taken From the SU Paul Pioueer
PreM. Dan Miters was especially drunk.
By this I mean that any other man
in the village of Cane Hill might have
been drunk and 'indeed other men
of that respectable community had
been known to indulge too heartily
in drink but that Dan Miters, being
the acknowledged drunkard of the
place, was especially and partiularly
intoxicated. He was a man of ac
knowledged sense. He had, gossip
said, as a prelude to some disparging
statement concerning his weakness,
carried off the honors at a well-known
school. One thing was certain. He
expressed himself in better language
than even the county judge could
hope to employ, and this, at Cane
Hill, was regarded as a convincing
assertion of higher education,
i Dan had first come to the village
. as the agent of a nursery; not that sort
j of a nursery which would disprove
i the declaration that marriage, among
j the poor at least, is a failure to per
petuate human misery, but as the
agent of a company w hich had fruit
trees for sale. He did not thorough
ly succeed in running the gauntlet of
villiage curiosity, for villagers are
critical of appearances, and a lazy
lounger w ho sits all day at the store,
while his wife is taking in washing
the utterly worthless fellow who
would rather wallow in the mire with
a black falsehood than to recline on
a velvet couch with a bright truth ;
who wears a filthy shirt and one
"bed -tick" suspender ; who chews
charity tobacco and spits at a knot
hole which, he thinks by the right of
his own yellow slime, he has pre
empted that fellow w ill criticise the
clothes and facial expression of a
Dan was criticised, not only by the
worthless loafer, but by the merchant
and even by the faded woman who
had slipped in to exchange a few eggs
for a small piece of calico. They
declared that Dan's hair was too red,
and that there were too many freck
les on his face ; and it was agreed
that he did not dress as a gentleman
should. The worthless loafer squirt
ed at his pre-empted knot-hole and
'Now you're gittin' right down to
the squar' facts."
That was a long time ago. Dan
was absorbed into the community's
social system, and became celebarted
as the village drunkard. Previous to
his achievement of this distinction,
the fame had belonged to one Peter
H. Rush, and it appeared that he
could never be robbed of the reputa
tion w hich he had laboriously acquir
ed, but altera few years of close con
test, Peter B. Rush's warmest admir
ers were forced to acknowledge that
the palm belonged to Dan Miters.
What a handy man was Miters when
a comparison was needed ! What
an encouragement to innovation ! A
man, in speaking of some one w ho
was stupidly influenced by liquor, was
no longer under the necessity of say
ing that he was as drunk as the dis
reputable canine associate of the fid
dler, but simply fulfilled all demands
by affirming that he was as drunk as

One day, when he appeared to be
soberer than usual, the mayor ot the
village thus addressed him :
"Dan, I would like to know some
thing about your life."
"And I, sir," Dan replied, "would
like to know something about my

"No doubt of it, sir. A corpse

"Come, don't talk that way. You
have been here now about twenty

"And do you really want to know
where I was born ?
"Yes, I'd like to know."
"Well, sir, I was born in the night."
"There you go again. Say, do
you know that if you would brace up
there is yet time for you to accom
"Yes? But you have tried, and
w hat have you accomplished ?"
"Why, I own a good house and
lot I am married and have a family
of interesting children."
"Is that all?"
"But isn't that enough?"
"Hardly, for you have not taught
your children not to feel, and until
you do this your marriage stands as
a wrong. About a year ago one of
your boys lost an arm at a saw-mill.
Weren't you the primary cause of his
suffering, and is not a primary cause
the meanest of all causes ?"
"I won't talk to you," the mayor
declared. "There is no reason in
your argument and no humanity in
your conclusions. But . come." he
added in a softened voice, "why
don't you make an effort to keep
"I don't want to keep sober-"
"And w hy not ?"
"Because sobriety is the mother of

is that it ?"
"And why don't you want to think?
Your thoughts might amount to
something. The greatest man, vou

"So is the greatest sufferer."
, "And when you think you suffer
eh?', 3 '
"Yes, and so do all men. Go into
a library and look about you. What
do you see ?"
"Books," the mayor answered.
"And what are books ?"
"Gifts from superior minds."
"No," said the drunkard. "Thev
are the . records of human suffering.
I Every great book is an ache from a
: heart and a pain-throb from a brain.
But what's the use of all of this talk?
What concerns me most at present is,
where am I going to get a drink ?
"You don't need a drink, Dan."
"There you go with your dogma
tism. . There you go measuring the
grains of my want in your half
bushel. You don't need a drink and
you say that I don't. I would not
presume to say what other men need
but it seems to be the province of all
other men to dictate to me. Come
I am growing too sober, and shall be
gin to think pretty soon. Won't you
please help me out ? Let me have
twenty-five cents ; you can spare it.
A man who doesn't drink has but
little real need for money, anyway.
Let me have twenty-five cent and I'll
do any sort of work that you want
"Will you help me fix up the ad
dress I've got to deliver at the po-
"Yes, I will."
"And swear that you'll never tell
that you helped me?"
"Yes, I will do that, too."
"And you will draw up a paper
swearing that you did not write the
address I delivered last month to the
Oddfellows? I want you to do this
for I have heard it hinted around
that you had a hand in it."
"Yes, I'll do anything."
Dan was about to turn away after
receiving the money, when he caught
sight of a woman crossing the court
"Who is that?" he asked.
"Mrs. Burkley, the widow we have
employed to teach our school," the
"Where did she come from?"
"From Wilson County, I believe.
Did you ever meet her?"
'I think not," he said, and has
tened toward a doggery on the op
posite side of the street.
On a hill a short distance from
the village, a hill shaded by poplar
trees, was an old school-house, ongi
nally built by logs, but now weather
boarded 'and whitewashed. The
widow Burkley had just told the
children they might go out and play
until she called them, when the door
was darkened by a reddish appari
tion. The w idow uttered a befitting
little shriek, and then realizing that
there was no serious cause for alarm ,
said : "Come in." She would not
have extended this invitation had she
not wanted to set an example of
Dan Miters stepped into the room.
He stood for a moment looking at
the window, and then said : "Don't
be afraid of me. I saw you yester
day and didn't know but you "
"Is it possible exclaimed the wo
man. "That is what I was going to ask,"
Dan replied, seating himself on a
bench. "Twenty years make a
great change in appearances, even
though hearts sometime remain the
"Have you come here to reproach
me? Children," she added, turning
to several youngsters that showed
a disposition to loiter about the door,
"run along now and play.
The children vanished, and the
widow, after looking out to see if
they were within hearing, said : "I
have suffered too much to bear re
"But don t you think you are de
serving of reproach?" he asked.
"No. I acted as I thought best.
I promised to marry you, and

I thought I loved you, but when you

saw that I was charmed by your
mind, but not warmed by your heart.
Another man came. He was not
bright, he had many foolish words,
but love is expressed in words that
are foolish. You awoke my admira
tion ; he thrilled my heart. Then I
wrote and told you not to think of
me again. I was buried in the roses
of my ow n happiness. How could I
think of you ?"
"And you married that man?
"And were you happy?"
'For a time. Then the dew fell
off the flowers. What could the
flowers do but wither ? We went to
a distant town, and there he deserted

"He was hanged."
"Do you love his memory ?"

"I was moved with pity."
"Would your pity sink deeper in
to your heart if I were to tell you
that I am the most hopeless of all
drunkards? Look at me. Look."
He opened his coat. "I have given
my old shirt to a negro for a drink.
Does your pity sink deeper ?"
"Oh, please go away, go away,

"George, I have always been true
to myself. I don't lov e you."
"Couldn't you learn couldn't there
be progress ?"
"There could be progress, but that
progress would be toward hatred."
He look at her in silence. He took
up his old hat, w hich had been drop
ped on the floor, and turned it round
and round in his hand. I le looked
down at his shoes, from which his
toes protruded. He got up with a
stagger-, gazed at her a moment, and
then an expression, not a smile, but
an expression like that w hich follows
the swallowing of a bitter draught,
broke through the red stubble about
his mouth. "Mrs. I don't know
your name," he began, "but Mrs.
Somebody, you are the most merci
less creature that ever lived."
"The children sav I am kind."
m wc imc me spun 01 a vampire,
"The children think I have the
spirit of gentleness."
"I hope you may die the most
horrible of all deaths. I pray to
God that you may die of hydropho
bia I implore God that a mad dog
may bury his teeth in your throat,"
"Go away!" she answered. "Come
children," she cried. "Go away
from here, you monster ! I wish
but I can't think of anything horrible
enough. Now go."
The village was the scene of fear
inspired ferment. A report that a
powerful mad dog had been seen in
the neighborhood had been brought
in by an excited farmer. The
bravest of men shudder at the
sight of a mad dog. Men that would
fight a grizzly bear tremble when
they see a mad dog. Every man in
the village went armed. Double
fastenings were put on every door.
The widow Burkley was terror-stricken.
She could not be induced to
leave her room. Gradually the ex
citement died away. School w as re
sumed, but the w idow was tremulous.
She left the school-house very late
one evening. Two rebellious boys
had been kept in. When liberated
the boys ran away. The widow
tried to keep up with them. She
could not. She was hurrying along
the path when a man came dashing
past on a horse. "Mail dog ! mad
dog !" he yelled. She screamed and
looked back. The dog was bound
ing toward her. She fainted.
No one had the courage to look
for the w idow. Late at night almost
a maniac, she knocked at the door
of the house where she boarded.
Morning came. A startling discov
ery was made. Dan and the mad
dog was found lying across the path
near the place where the widow had
fainted. The dogs teeth were buried
in Dan's throat. Dan's fingers were
stiffened about the dog's neck. Both

The ordinary treatment of conta
gious blood poisoning is to drive one
poison from the system by introduc
ing another. The result, in most
cases, has been that which usually
follows a leap from the frying jwn
into the fire. To put it mildly, mer
curial and other mineral poisonings
have disadvantages which are hardly
less serious than contagious blood
poison. In either case the system is
wrecked ; and yet there is no reason
why humanity should continue to
suffer. It is the office of S. S. S., to
cure contagious blood poisoning. For
that disease the medicine is surely a
specific. And it is also its office to
cure mercurial and other mineral
poisoning. In short, S. S. S., is the
great blood purifier. It destroys the
germs of the contagious disease, and
expels from the system all forms of
mineral poisoning. It restores health
and strength to the suflerer.
