Is a common exclamation at this
season. There is a certain bracing
effect in cold air which is lost when
the weather grows warmer ; and when
Nature is renewing her youth, her
admirers feel dull, sluggish and tired.
This condition is owing mainly to
the impure condition of the blood
and its failure to supply healthy j
tissue to the various organs ol the
body. It is remarkable how suscepti
ble the system is to the help tJ be
derived from a good medicine at this
season. Possessing just those puri
fying, building-up qualities which
the body craves, Hood's Sarsaparilla
soon overcomes that tired feeling
restores the appetite, purifies the
blood, and in short, imparts vigorous
health. Its thousands of friends as
with one voice declare. "It Makes
the Weak Strong."
BILL AKPS LETTER.
We see that there has been another
negro burned burned in Georgia
burned mainly by his own race. That
last is a good sign a sign that they
are begining to appreciate the sin of
those horrible crimes that almost ev-1
ery day are committed somewhere
by the villianous black tramps who
are to be found in almost every com
munity. When the negro, as a race,
begins to preach against . these hor
rible crimes in his own pulpit and to
write against them in his own news
paper and to talk against them by the
fireside and in the field, these out
rages will cease. But all the negro
papers I have seen make large capi
tal out of the lynchings and burnings
and breath out threats of retaliation,
but attach little importance to the
crimes. In this they have the sym
pathy of northern politicians who
have for thirty years encouraged their
revenge by fire and assassination. In
southern negro schools and colleges
that have 1-een established with north
ern money the white imported teach
ers have made their pupils be
lieve . that they were an oppressed
race, and were kept under the ban of
persecution ; that if they had . their
rights they would have social equality
with the whites in churches and
schools, and some of the northern re
ligious papers have openly advoca
ted the setting of the negro problem
by miscegenation. Even so great
and good a man as Rev. John Hall,
D. D., LL. D. came out m a two
column philipic against the Horrible
Tragedy" at Paris, Texas, and all
along through his article used the
large type head lines such as, RED
HOT IRONS SOAKED WITH
O I I-CAST INTO THE FLAM ES,
and so forth, and he appealed to the
friends of the freedmen to help them
to avert these awful outrages. He
says the world's fair is to be visited
by all nations, how can we hold up
the great exhibition and land our
civilization in the face of the head
lines, "TEXANSBURN A NEGRO
MURDERER AT THE STAKE?"
'Will Dr.' Hall never learn to put
himself in our place ? Will the north
ern people never let us and the ne
gro alone? Are we to have no
credit for humanity or intelligence ?
Have we not lived with the negro all
our lives, and do we not know him
better than those who see him afar off?
Shall we be penned up with them on
a limited space and under the foolish
and . magligant federal laws and not
be allowed to protect ourselves and
our wives and daughters ? I say it
with all sincerity that the mistaken
interference of our northern brethren
with the negro problem, has been the
prime cause of all the negro's misfor
tunes, of all the outrages and all the
lynchings and burnings. Senator
Ingalls, being at last out of a job, has
laid aside his hobby and says there
will be no more politics founded on
the negro. He ought to know, for
he rode that horse for twenty five
years and roweled his sides until the
ribs were bare and his friend Tour
gee rode behind him until his crupper
was sore and it is a fit time to turn
the old risp out to die. Now let north
ern philanthropists shinny on their
own side and look alter the poor and
wrretched in their own cities. If it
could be done we would gladly put a
million of our poorest negroes against
a million of their poorest w hites on
exhibition at Chicago and let the
world see the difference the differ
ence in flesh and health and content
ment and hilarity. Here is the hap
piest race upon earth and the easiest
to control if let alone by their con
ceited or pretended northern friends.
But what I was going to say to
Dr. Hall and all of his sort your
legislation has penned us up with
these people and we are going to
protect ourselves. If we find a rattle
snake or a maddog or a hyena going
about loose, shall we not kill him ? I
have lived in the couutry for years
and felt the common apprehension
the apprehension of some awful grief,
and 1 say now that if I had come I
would have joined my nabors and
burnt the vile brute at the stake with
as much serenity as I would kill a
gorrilla. I have read Governor
Hogg's proclamation and Governor
Northen's and the editorials in some
of the papers and have wondered what
was the matter with me. Why can't
I feel that these lynchings and burn
ings are horrible and barbarous ?
Maybe I am like the poor fellow at
camp meeting who said he would like
to get religion but he couldn't feel
that he was a sinner. I can't feel
that way. If I had been at Paris
where I could realize the awful bru
tality of that negro's crime upon
that poor little innocent child I should
have joined the mob. Yes, I could
have seen the brute torn limb from
limb and his flesh eaten by the dogs.
I felt just that way when the negro
cut the school girls throat near Mad
ison in my own state, and threw her
mangled body in the ditch. Such a
negro or such a white man is no more
to me than a wild beast that has no
soul. You may call it revenge or
barbarity if you please, but to my
mind it is an evidence ol the purest
love of innocense and the deepest
sympathy for. the sufferers. I want
no man to argue the matter with me.
I would not tolerate discussion over
it with a northern man who has had
no experience nor ' with a southern
one who has never felt the appre
hension. Let the officers of the law
d j or try to do their sworn duty, but
when the case is clear and the proof
positive or the crime confessed, it
makes no difference with me whether
they shoot him or burn him. If the
burning will better serve the purpose
of intimidating and preventing of
similar crimes by other brutes, then
let them burn. In the olden times
they stoned them with stones, accord
ing to the scripture.and there was vir
tue in the remedy. But the modern
philanthropist cries educate them
educate them just as if there was any
reform in education without moral
and religious training to go along
with it, side by side. There are less
than two hundred white convicts in
our penitentiary and over two thous
and negroes. Most of these negroes
never knew anything of slavery, for
they are under forty years of age, and
a large majority have had some
schooling, but they grow worse in
stead of better. Before the war there
was not one outrage to where there
are fifty now, and yet our northern
friends say it is from ignorance of the
law or from lack of education. It is
neither. It is because of their race
traits for indolence and stealing and
the gratification of their passions and
appetites. Before the war these traits
were fettered by fear, but now they
feej no restraint. The old-time ne
groes are still good citizens, made so
by early training, but the average ne
gro convicts shall go on, I know not,
but I do know that the methods of
modern civilization in the south will
have to be changed. There is too
much liberty in the youth of the ne
gro and of the white race too. Par
ents and teachers are not respected
and reverenced by the children as
they used to be. The negro used to
fear the lash, and it was a wholesome
and salutary fear. Now it is the cala
boose, the jail, or the chaingang,
which they do not fear. I verily be
lieve that a good whipping will do a
young negro more good and last
longer than ten years in the chain
gang. There would not be five hun
dred negroes in our convict camps
today if all the midemeanors had
been punished at the whipping post.
But modern philanthropy would cry
out, "Oh, horrible ! horrible !" The

very men who permit the poor and J

cry out against us. The very men
who ship rum to Africa every day to
be bartered in the slave trade would
raise their sanctimonious eyes to
heaven and ask the friends of the

south to rally lor his protection. How
long will these Catilines abuse our
patience? When I ruminate upon
these things it makes me tired very
tired, and keeps me from being calm
and serene. It makes both sides of
my head ache and I have to take a
double dose ol my medicine. But I

A passenger on a trans-Atlantc
liner had been sick for five days in
succession. One evening he felt
somewhat better, and promenaded
the saloon for sometime. About ten
o'clock he thought of retiring to his
state-room, which was on the upper
deck. Before leaving the saloon he
sought the steward and said :
"I want you to send me some hot
water lor shaving at half-past 6 in the
morning. Will you remember it?"
The steward promised, and the
passenger started up the saloon companion-way.
The steps were brass
covered and very slippery. He
reached the first landing all right, but
tripped on the first step of the
second, and came rattling all the way
down again. He was picked up
rather mussed up, but not a bit dis

I never go down a hatchway or in
to the cabin of a sunken vessel at
such times without involuntarily
shuddering over the thought that
perhaps some poor victim of the
wreck is imprisoned there, and that
he will suddenly be released by the
lurchings of the hulk and appear to

I know, of course, that a dead per
son is as harmless, tossed fantastically
about amid the solemn suroundmgs
of many fathoms deep, as he would
be lying calmly in his coffin at home ;
but I can't help a cold shudder and
an inclination to signal to be pu'led
to the surface if I come unexpectedly
in contact with one at the bottom of
That feeling is by no means un
common among lake-divers, and with
me it is the result of an indelible first
impression, an incident of my first
experience on a sunken wreck. It
was six years ago, in Lake Huron. I
had gone down to recover a valuable
cargo from a vessel that had founder
ed so suddenly that the captain and
crew had barely time to escape by
The wreck lay in ninety feet of
water. It was badly broken up, and
rocked and swayed in the water so that
I kept my balance with difficulty as I
worked among the timbers. I was
prying and chopping my way to
the hatches, when from some place
about the wreck, but just where I
never could tell, a dead man rose
suddenly in front of me.
The corpse was no more than ten
feet away erect, facing me, and seem- j
ed tome exactly as if it had risen in j
alarm at my approach. The man j
had died with both hands clutching
the breast of his coat. His open
mouth, widely starying eyes and dis
torted lace made such a picture 01
horror as I hope never to see again.
The corpse stood for a second fac
ing me, and it seemed to me as if its
horror was of me and at my pre
sence. I was paralyzed with terror.
The dead man rose at last towards
the surface, and in such a way as to
deepen ttie impression that I had
disturbed him in his subterranean
sepulchre, for it was for all the world
as it he were lleeing from me.
Several times before the cornse
disappeared beyond my line of vision
it turned in the water and seemed
to gaze back at me with that haunting
lookot horror, the hands still clutch
ing the breast. After the body had
gone out of sight I tried to nroceed
with my work but I was so much un
strung that a hsh swimming by, or
my air hose flapping against me,
gave me such gainful starts that I
had to signal to be hauled to the

The nthusiastic welcome accorded
the Liberty Bell outdid in enthu
siasm and in number of the multi
tude that participated in it even
that extended to president Cleve
land. It was the third formal wel
come of the day and it touched the
popular heart more than either ol
those that preceded it.
Early this morning the bell, with
its railing ol silver, was mounted
upon a handsome float. "Turn out
patriots," was the brief proclamation
issued by Aldermen Kent, Marshal of
the day, and the patriots did turn out
as they have not turned out for any
thing or anybody for many a year,
with the possible exception of the
World's Fair inaugural parade.
Shortly alter noon the crowd in the
neighborhood ol the depot became so
dense that it was iound necessary to
clear the street in order that the for
mation of the parade could be effec
ted. This was accomplished with
so. ne difficulty and loss of time, and it
was not until 2 o'clock that Alderman
Kent was ready to give the signal for
the head ol the column to move.
Then came the Liberty bell upon
its decorated float, drawn by thirteen
coal black horses, the Chicago Hus
sars, 100 strong, and mounted on
magnificent chargers, acting as a
special guard of honor to the relic.
The sons of Pennsylvania turned
out in force, so did the World's Fair
commissioners and directors, and rep
resentatives of the majority of the
civic societies of the city, and the
general public marching, four abreast
brought imthe rear. Prom begining
to end the procession was nearly two
miles in length. Duke ofveragua
and suite witnessed the procession
from the balcony of the Auditorium
Hotel. When the float reached the
Lexincton Hotel there was a brief
halt, and President Cleveland, who
stood upon the roof ol the veranda,
surrounded by members of his Cabi
net, made a short address.
Upon the arrival of ihe procession
at Jackson Park it proceeded up the
Fifty-seventh street avenue to Penn
sylvania State building. The formal
exercises were then inaugurated.
Prayer was offered by Rev. Wm.
White Wilson and the "Star Spangled
Banner" was' rendered by male quar
tette. The duty of turning over the
bell to the temporal y care of Chicago
and the orld's l air official devolved
upon Mayor Stuart, of the Quaker

YOUNG BROTH ERS
TUB tilt BAT NAVAL I'AKAIB.
The great naval parade was on
Wednesday. It was .1 magnificent
day and the ships looked very im
posing. The fiercest looking among
them was a black-painted French
man. About that ship there was
somehow a suggestion of hearses.
With its black turrests instead of
masts it looked more like some ma
rine monster than a ship. Most of
the foreign vessels were painted black
as to the hulls, but the Frenchman
was black all over. Our own ships
were white of hull and red of funnel.
On Thursday the two lines of ships
lay motionless while the President re
viewed them. The ships were gaily
decked with the flags of all nations
brightening the misty river in spite
of the rain. For miles the shores
were black with umbrellas. The peo
ple who held them stood for hours
with soaking ieet waiting for the re
view to begin. When it did begin
the umbrellas were let down, for it
had ceased raining. Then the great
guns Hashed out and the echoes
crashed along the shores. Ship after
ship saluted with red tongues of fire.
When it was all over a vast cloud of
tugs, small steamers and pleasure
boats that had gathered in the I ludson
above the warrior columns, swept
swiftly down the river, all their
whistles shrieking wildly. This, too,
was a fine sight.
The three caravels, the counter
part of the little fleet of Columbus
looked like market baskets. The
great Fnglish war-ship "Blake," or
our own "Philadelphia" could have
taken all three on board and sailed
away with them. Looking at the
caravels, one is inclined to call the
great discoverer the very bravest of
all the sailors in the world. j
It was gratifying to the people of
New York that the central figure in
uie great picture 01 1 nursuay was
a Democratic President Loud were
their cheers f rom the shores as his
boat passed by. Mr. Cleveland has
added to his popularity here by his
recent action in the matter of the
currency. The fact that he disappoin
ted Wall street, or rather eluded
Wall street, is pleasing to the masses.
They like to feel it is with pride
that they feel that he was too
smart for the brokers. They like also
to feel that "honest Grover" is not
going to borrow money for the peo
ple to pay back with interest if he can
possibly help it ; and that no body of
of rich men can induce the govern
ment to issue bonds just yet.
Remarkable as was the gathering of
the foreign men-of-war in our harbor
to participate in the naval review,
still more remarkable was the spec
tacle presented of the uniformed
forces of foreign nations, armed and
accoutred as lor battle, marching in
our streets. Not since the British
evacuated New York has such an
occurrence b en witnessed here, and
in no country but ours is such an
occurrence possible. With muskets
