promises to each pnrcnaser of shoes,

money to be paid i pot cash and the
promised goo"d3 to be delivered next

The man and woman had numer

expected to receive ust what they

Democracy of Concord get
ting together and getting a
hump o.- themselves. That
meeting Friday night was a
daisy. It was a meeting of
the beat element. The
manufacturers ana the mill
ggltjiiauuo uric nicir, iuc ejue
tbe merchant and his clerks were
there the contractor and his cm.
p'oycea wee there the mechanic
and l he day laborer were there. It
made my heart feel glad, bubble up
and oyerflow to see that ghost of De
mocracy materialize thusly. I have
always thought there was a likeness,
a resemblance, a similitude between
politics and religion iu this way.
The common, every Sunday eeryice
and the Sabbath school is left to
the women and the small fry, whilst
the heads of families, worn out with
a hard week's labor, or laid up with
the seventh -day headache rest.
Let a protracted meeting, a revival,
or something out of the regular old
John Trot styla come along, and
some'big gun v. ith an affix of 1. D.
or anythii g else 13 announced to aid
the pas. or loci, then all lethargy is
thrown aside and the zeal of these
old fellows is beyond comp ire. They
turn out en masse In politics our
great guns ignore the little munici--pal
skirmishes, hold back their
heavy artilery of solid shot and caa
nister for National and State battles.
They forget that the municipal or
township skirmish line does half the
duty, they forget that this i3 the
field on which young Democrats are
taught to shoot straight. Thi3 is
the only true educator.
Korner seidom takes a hand in
politics, it is not his providence, but
he has in his time and generation
beheld lampant, roaring Democrats
"kercoodling," mirgling and com
mingleing with wiley, oily-tongned
Republicans of every ehade and
color on a Mayorulicy ; and he has
often thought that if they could
suck through the same quill out of
the seme swill tub at home, why not
keep it up at the national tank.
Every voter's political bias should
ba like hia church fealty; and he
should be a regular attendant.
Korner- would like to discuss
many things, and a few he would
lika to kuss, but implicit confidence
in Democracy 'a choicj at the next
el.ction of mayor aud aldermen
makes him tee! serene. But our
next board ought to regulate the tax
o i unprofessional Tom and Jerry
medicine men, outside bill poster?,
and peripathetic venders I know not
what of. The tax on a gasoline
medicine man like "Texas Harry"
ocght to be $50 per month instead
of So, The town would then get
some benefit of the stuff imposed on
the unthinking public.
The Douglassite conclave, I see,
has adjourned, I have followed its
proceedins "ad nenseam" and find
we are saddled with an increase of
ten per cent, tax and some pie crust
promises, without any life in the
shortage of currency. I have al
ways "had it in my head" that it
was not a shortage of currency, but
a shortage of capitul ;hat was hurt
ing ns people down here. If we
have the capital (available) we can j
get the currency. Bimetalism, a
combination, or gold and silver as a
medium of exchange as money
is what we want, Silyer alone is
not a cure-all. There ia not a
Southern man who would invest his
capital with a prospect nf getting
fifty cents on the dollar in a year
hence, payable in silver muddle and
