THE REVIVAL OF BUSINESS
The Baltimore Son sees a bright
phase In tba business situation and
says: The revival of boeitiee, for
which the public has been looking, it
long delayed, but its arrival, ts not
announced as actual, is now being pre
dicted by trade journaU of all olaasae
as an event of tbs very near foture.
The total volume of business transac
tions is undoubted ly increasing. Brad
street's reports, a slowly tn< proving
demand for good* at most distributing
centres. The New York Journal of
Commerce points to the significant
fact that bank clearings ere better by
12.6 per cent thau a year ago and 3
per cent, better tbau they were a weak
ago. International relation* are great
ly improved the world over. The
euormus excess of exports of merchan
di-e over Imports in tbs past year laid
the foundation for the main tenance of
the gold reserve at Worthington aud a
comfortable balance in Enrope for
some time to come. To these consid
erations, which fitvor the belief that
trade is bound to Improve, may be ad
ded certain recent minor events of a
reassuring character. Among these
events is the development of a proba
bility of a settlement of the govern
ment's claim against the Union Fatdfic
in snch away aa to put 145,754,000 or
more into the treasury, tbs nat result
being that the government get the fee#
of the subsidy bonds end 3J per cent,
interest besides. Such au addition to
the resooices of the present time will
be very welcome as a protection
against d*ficits and as a safeguard
against new bond issue. With the
gold reserve approacbiug #150.000,000
and au addition of uearli fifty million*
to tba cash balance, the situation can •
uot but be deemed airly satisfactory.
One of the loftiest, richest examples
us intellects of this world—one of the
really greatest among man— was John
Milton. Ho wee tha moat learned as
sell as the sublime*! of poeit. He
had t jjmense erudition aud yet he was
one of the greatest of poet*—possibly
Lihe aobllmast of all poets. Riches he
wes in lu great natural endowments
and vast aa ware hie attainments; hie
moral nature was possibly aa highly
cultivated as his intellectual, and of all
the inspired |*oeta be probably had the
mast stainless soul. He wore a spot
less character under the vicissitudes of
fottnos and the sufferings of a life that
was chequered and eventfnl, preserving
hi* Independence of thought and his
manliness of character. Lord Macaulay
in his splsodid essay on Milton, written
before be was twenty-five, in most
striking language, present* this phase
of life and rectitude of character.
From his boyhood Milton's hsart was
instructed a* wall as bis superb mind,
aud bis moral development was pari
passu with bis intellectual. Hie miod
like tha unclouded heavens, was fall of
light and beauty, wiiiUt his heart aver
burned with pure affections, noble
emotions, and holy dssirta. The cul
tivation of the mind that he received is
uot in the reach of ell. or, indeed, of
many, but the heart of all may, at
feast, be as sedulously trained as bis
was, If not with such results.
Mr. L. B. Haskins, who left os some
days ago to an tar the Blbfe College of
Lsvington, Ky., renorta that ho is ex
ceedingly well plaaesn in his new sur
rounding*. This will be lodeed grati
fying to hie many friends m Jones
County. During the pest year Ben
was oar Register of Deeds, and a moot
efficient aod popular offloier he was.
His integrity end uprightness endeared
him to all classes of our peopfe, and
whi.e we do not part with such of our
promising young men without a pro
test, wa are tuny aware that he has
taken a proper step io prepare himself
for greater usefulness.
Many art the good wishes that have
followed you to your new home, and
whifo none of us have *uy anxiety oou
earning your success In the future, we
ail bid you a happy God speed. May
you live long and prosper.
