WASHINGTON, Jane Iti—Below is
given tho full text of the bill which has
passed both houses of Congress and be
oome a law, amending tho sixth subdi
vision of section 3 244 of the revised
statues, relating to dealers in leaf tobac
co. It adds to that subdivision tho (ol
IVoi>hlrd further , That dealers in leal
tobacoo (other than retail doalors, as de
fined in thu seventh subdivision of the
seotion.) who do not deal in leaf tobac

salo, or eonsign for sale on commission,
to an amount not exceeding twenty-live

from farmers or planters who hare pro.

or produced by tlicm, or received the
sau.e as lent from their tenants, who
have pruduced the same on such lai !>
shall each be n quired to pay for carry
ing on such business a special tax of
$5 only. 11 any person, who haß paid
such special tax shall be found to have
purchased or received and sold, or con
signed for sale on commission, more than
25,000 pounds of leaf tobacoo, such a 8

revenue is authorixed and directed to
assess suoh person ao amount of tax
equal to the difference between the spec

of $25 bereinbrforo imposed upon a
dealer in leaf tobaooo.
The olass of dealers to which the
above is applicable has heretofore paid a
special tax of $25. The reduction of
this tax to $5 under the oondi'ions indi

Ways and Means Committee and the
Senate Finance Committeo, but by bntb
houses. In reporting the bill to the
House, tho Ways and Means Committee
said that in their opinion its passage
would result in multiplying the number
of dealers in leaf tobaoco, in creating a
market for the same in neighborhoods
now without a market ior such tobacco,
and in thus causing many pounds of
tobacco, whioh are now never exposed

i)AN BURY, N. C., THURSDAY. JULY 1, 1880.
RESCUED BY AX INDIAN.
AN ADVENTULTLC IN THE BOUTTLWEST.
When I was quite young, my father
went as missionary to the Indians who
lived in what is known as tho ited Riv
er district Wo mado the voyage down
the river from St. Joseph, Mo., io two
canoes, whioh were drawn upon shore
for us to sleep in at night, a bright tire
bjing built in frout of them to keep off
In this way our little parly, consisting
of my father, mother, one elder sister,
uiyse'f, and two boatmen journeyed to
the mission station. The station WBB a
long, low, double of logs, al
reaiy "ocoMpied by 4 another missionary
nauiedtMoCoy. He had lived, until our
family came, without any other compan
ion but a half-breed Indian called Tony.
Supplies were sent to his lonely S[>ot
by the B >ord of Missions and other
friends from the States. These were
brought down tho river in oanoes, and
hauled up to the station on a rude sled
by a yoke of stout oxen.
One day McCoy and my father had
gono to the river for a load of supplies.
It was a day's journey to the landing
and back. Tony had gone with them.
No one was left at home but mother and
us two girls.
The day passed very pleasantly To
ward noon, as we wero watching mother
about her work, my sister suddenly clap
ped her hauds, and cried out, "Oh, what
a big dog J"
We turned to the door, and my moth
er uttered a cry of leiror, fur in the
doorway there stood, not a dog, but a
large black bear.
He was probably drawn by the etiiell
of the sugar and uiolases, for bears are
very food of sweets. We were greatly
frightened, and could not leave the cabin
because the animal was between us and
If we could have got to the ladder
and up the loft, we might have escaped
that way ; but the barrels were in front
of the laddet, and BO was Bruin. There
was really no way of esoape, so my
mother drew us 100 children close to her,
and took refuge behind the great packing
box where she had been at *ork, thus
putting a slight barrier between us and
our unwelcome visitor.
A barrel of crackers was open, and
we found out then that bears like oraok
ers, for that fellow soon upset the bar
rel and munched as many as he pleased,
while we looked helplessly on, and saw
our luxuries disappear.
But be was anious to get at" the su
gar, and soon left the crackers and be
gan to paw and scratoh at the sugar bar
rel, which was not open, and whioh
stoutly resisted his efforts.
He grew angry, and, with a fierce
growl, gave it a smashing blow with his
huge paw, and lifted his foot for anoth
er, when a report from a rifle sounded
in our ears, and we heard the ping of a
ball just as Mr. Bruin rolled, a huge
woolly heap, on the floor. The sound of
a horse's feet followed, and, as my moth
er hurried out from her refugo, our de
liverer stood in the wide doorway.
He was a stalwart Indian, with long
black hair streaming half a yard down
his baok, and a scarlet blanket wrapped
around bis strong limbs. We children
were almost as muoh afraid of him as of
the bear. But all the Indians who came
to the mission were Iriendly, and my
mother knew this one. He was a Cher ?
kee ohief, oalled Ma-shoon tire, whiob
means "The Running Wind."
"Ha 1 Squaw heap scare ? White
papoose heap scare f" be cried, with a
laugh. ''Me see traoks, track him in
house! Sboote ! No hurt!" accompa
nying his words with expressive pan
My mother told him we were not hurt,
and thanked him for shooting the bear,
in words whioh oould understand.
"He Ihe 1 Bear muoh good meat 1"
■aid Ala shoon-tire. "Bear want eatee
up you. Now you eatee up Bear."
At my mother's request, be draggod
the huge caroass outsido the door; but
when the told him it was his bear, as he
had shot it, he emphatically refused to

loarned their use, seemed to be as de

to examine the goods whioh my mother
had been taking out of the box when j
she was interrupted by bis bearuhip
Among other things there wero tw.j

They had been sent to us children, but

to biui for saving her from a great danger, :
gave him two of them.
He took them in great glee fronf my

from hiß pouch a lung string of brilliant
beads, made of various colored glass, lie
threw them over Iter ntok, pleasing her
almost as much as the gay little hand

Progress Since the War.
Few people realize what astonishing ]
progress has been mado io (his country
since the war, notwithstanding the in i
terruption to the industrial development
caused by the panio 1873. In the four
teen years since 1805 the p oduction of
whoat has increased from 1-48 552.829
bushels to 448,750,000 ! ushcls ; of corn,
from 704,427,853 bushels to 1,51 i,B!L9,
090 bushels ; of c.dton, from 2 228,987
bales to 5,020,387 bales, ai d of tobacco,
from 183,31G,9F 3 pounds to 384.059 G59
pounds. Io other agricultural pr ducts
tho increase has been prnportionutely
great. According to a well known sta
tistician, Mr K. P. Porter, the produc
tion of wheat and barley has trebled ;
corn, cotton and tobacoo more than
doubted ; oats increased liearly 140,000,-
f)00 bushels; potatooi nearly doubled,
and hay increased nearly one-third
The South has overy reason to be sat
isfied with her contribution to the com
mon prosperity The cotton crop of 1878
and 1879 was the largest ever raised
The ten crops from 1852 to 1861 raised
by slave labor numbered 34,995,440
bales. The ten crops of 1870 to 1879
inclusive, raised by free labor, numbered
41,454,743 baleß. In tobaoco also the
South has achievtd a gratifying inorease
in the annual yield, and it is believed'
that at no distant day thero will be an
enormous increase in the production of
Southern corn. While the centre of
sgrioultural production has moved swift
ly westward it is believed that, with the
deterioration of theso new lands and the
steady fertilization of the soil in the
older States, it will recede eastward
Mr. Porter, from whom these state
meuts sre derived, declares thai "exhaus
tion" of wheat IsndH is an impossibility
so long as farmers supply their lands
with the necessary quantity of f>od.
There need be no anxiety, therefore
about the continued abuudaut yield of
our soil, and "the possibilities of our ag
ricultural interests, in the language of
Mr. Porter, "are as yet an unknown
quantity." The future undoubtedly has
great things in store for the whole coun
try and especially for the South, whioh,
under the new retjime, and with honest
and stable looal governments, has at Isst
entered upon a new era of prosperity.
OUR SPIRITUAL SKY—Yeats ogo, we
witnessed an eolipse of the sun by the
moon passing over his bright faoe.
During the eolipse the earth grew dark
and sombre. The fowls began to seek
their nightly test There was a strange,
gloomy, molsnoholy shade eait all over
nature. What was the matter ? The
body of the moon was between us and
the sun. So when the world with it*
absorbing oares and transitory ohsrms
gets between the soul snd Christ, the
Sun ot righteousness, our hope oi heav
en darkens, and the shade of a spiritual
eolipse is thrown upon the pathway of
life. "To bo oarnally minded is death."

a word of adtico on their introduction
into life "Never try to ascertain," said
tio illustrious statesman to the elder

second, "ask who was the author of,

election this Summer, "another election

of whisky, or tapping of barrels of money,
it will quietly proceed, io every township
or county of our broad land. Before
September there wili be an eleotion of
250,000 Bommon-sohool teachers to servo
the country another year. These teaoh
ers, for the noxt twelvo months, will be,
by all odds, the most powerful body of
people in the United States. They will
do that sort of work which tells on tbo
5,000,000 coaimon-school children of the
country in a manner no other set of peo
ple can hope to rival. Any conclusion
of the present campaign will be revised,
within twenty years, by these 5,000,000
of scbool-ohildren, and that revision will
be largely in accordaooo with the type of
character and intelligence wrought out
by these 250,000 public servants, a large
majority of them young women, who will
quietly take their places in the opening
weeks of September, as teachers in the
