THINGS MONEY CANNOT BUY. flraJns, Coo4 Conscience, Trut Friend ship nd Health Are Not The Servant et God. Money is a .useful and nec?bsary thing. It can do much for our selves and others. But there are manj things, and the things of greatest value, that money cannot bay. One of these things ia intellec tual power. A fool's monev can buy diamonds, palaces, titles; but it cannot buy an ounce of brains: nd he must submit, if he be a. wiBe fool, to use throughout his lifetime the brains ot others. GiU ed ignorance is still ignorance; and Mind remains Master though clothed in rags. Money ennnot buy a clear con science. Gold is no shield against the shafts of remorse, and great I wealth cannot silence the soul's -condemnation. Conscience has never I been bribed, and no success, how a ever great, csn efface the stain of Iain. The pain may be softened down, but it brings no ease to the heads that wear the devil's crown. I True happiness flies when conscience frowns, and no golden lure can 1 bring her back. I Mouey cannot buy a happy home. t-Sometiuies it ilmost seems as if jwealth were inimical to home happi ness. It caunot buy uuselfishness, and it cannot buy the forbearnee that is a neoe-sity to happiness. Children are not the happier be cause they have uo uugratitied wishes and men and women do not love each other because they are less necessan to each other. The .happiest homes are seldom found where wealth is great. Money cannot buy friendship. ,Some will perhaps take exception to this and claim that morcy does I Attract friends. The difference lies f .solely in what we mean by "friend". Money attracts those that money 1 can buy, but true men are not for 1 sale. Those whom mv monev at traets are my money's friends alone, And I am still us lonely as ever. Money cannot buy health. It may secure the amelioration of sickness and the lessening of pain, and in exDeplional cases it may mean restoiation to health, but in the vast majority of casts the re verse is true, and the rich man in his suffering looks with longing eyes upon the poor man's rutrged health, and feels that it would be a good exchange if he could secure that health even at the sacritice of all he has. Money caunot buy the saving of the soul or the safe guarding of those spiritual interests that are dearer than life itself. There are duors that swing open at the touch of gold, bnt not these doors. There may be crowns that are for sale, bu t not the crown of life. Earth's gold is less than tinsel here. The power of money reaches no higher than some paltry six feet from the ground. Sometimes earthly justice has been for sale; and the judge's ermine has been soiled, but there is no spot upon the great white throne. All the wealth of all the ages could not buy forgiveness of sins. Corruption Funds and Benefit'. The Republican National cam paign fuud expended by Chairman Cortelyou, for the Roosevelt election is reputed to have been a little more than $4,000,000. Where and how did they get it? The official evi dence :n the Life Insurance investi ting showed that part of it came from the trust funds of policy holders that should have been sa r.red to widows and orphans; that IlainmaD, who the President now charges is an undesirable citizen, fave $50,000; that the discredited tepew gave $25,000, and his friends in Wall Stieet about $100,000 more. That Mr. Rogers, of the Standard Oil Trust and Mr. Still, man, President of the National City the Kockfeller Bank and a num ber of ,ohter trusts and corporation magnates were also subscribers and charged and not disproven, and where the other millions came from is not certainly known, but large amounts were undoubedly paid by the protected truBts which have 'always been liberal producers of conuption funds to keep their Re publican friends ia office. That is the chief reason the tariff has not been revised. The other contributors have also had their quid pro quo, for no one seriously believes that the Standard Oil Trust will ever pay the fine assessed against it. We know that Harriman will get immu nity. We' know that Depew was elected Senator by the aid of the Admin istration. We know that the Standard Oil banks have large gov ernment deposits without interest, and when the names of the other subscribers are divulged there will probably be no difficulty in tracing favors received. Does not this evi dence of the trusts and corporations having paid these large sums to the Roosevelt campaign fund plainly show that the charge made by Judge Parker just before the elec tion of 1904 was true, although President Roosevelt denied it. Yet no restitution even of the widows and orphans funds, has ever been made by the Repnblican National Committee, and President Roosevelt has never made the amend honora ble to Judge Parker, oi even a poor excuse which would be better than none. It is quite probable that the same dastardly tactics will be resort ed to in coming elections, and this evidence of Republican corruption and dishonor ia produced to prevent voters from being again deceived in the same or some similar manner. When you see or hear of large amounts of money being expended at some future election, just ask yourself the question, "Wheie and how did they get it?" Protests of tbe Past Against Railroads. Old Jonas's objections to a rail way were not amenable to reason or argument; it was sufficient that they were satisfactory to him. He had them all catalogued and numbered. There were six of them, and they ran about as follows: 1. A railroad would add ro the racket and riot of the neighborhood, whfn, as things were, it was a dif ficult matter for de-tic people to sleep in peace. '2. ( This obj-ctio'n was impressive on account ot its originality; no one had ever thought of it.) Tiiii pissing of railway trains would produce concussion, and this concussion, repeated at regular intervals, would cause the blossoms of the fruit lives to drop untimely off, and would no doubt, have a Jisim rous effect ou garden vegetables. 3. The railioad would not stop in SuaJy Dale, but would go ou to Atlanta, thus making the little town a way-station, and drain the whole country of its labor at a time when everybody was trying to adjust himself to the new conditions. 4. Instead of patronizing home industries and enterpiises, people would scramble for seats on the cars and g gadding about, spending anywhere but at home the little money thpy had. .5. Every busi ness and all forms of industry in the whole section adjacent to the line would beat the mercy of the road and its managers. 6. What did the people want with railroads, when a majority of the loudest talk ers had earned no more than three dollars apiece since the war. Joel Chandler Harris in Uuele Kemus's Magazine for October. l-onRing. It's lonely since you left me, dear; The hours go silent shod; I wait in vain to hear A stir where once yon trod. D.ivb days days And never your footsteps come; Oh, t:at J knew a call for you To turn your wanderings home! It's weary watching for you, love; The twilight is a ghost; The shadows breathe and move, Sighing of something lost; Dark dark dark And never your face for light, Divided. . . .Nay, a world away; Heart of my heart, good night! Nancy Iiyrd Turnur in July I.ipptncotts. Who Is the Aifanias. Here'a another question of veraci ty, amendacity or something of that sort. The Mansfield, Ohio, t)aily Shield says: "Official pre varicator, Loeb, eavs the President is taking no part in" the Creveland campaign, although Burton, whose veracity is not questioned, said, ia effect, that Roosevelt had urged him to run. "Either somebody has lied or nobody has told the truth, in either case, the Ohio Republicans will be deceived; but nobody else will. 60 SHARES OF STOCK IN MT. AIRY APPLE ORCH ARD CO.

Dear Sir: Answering yours of the 18th, we will say that the three buggies came in O. K., and opened up in good shape. We must acknowledge that we were some what prejudiced against the "Rock Hill" buggy, but since we bought these, sample buggies and comoared them with other sample buggies we have decided that the "Rock Hill" is the best we have seen for the price, and we expect to advertise them in our county paper and push the sale of them in this community. Yours very truly, (Signed) Fort Lawn Live Stock & Mer. Co. "Prejudice is a thief and will rob you of many good things." If you have a preconceived idea in your head that "Rock Hill" buggies cannot be as good as or better than some other make, you are the loser.
