From Harper's Bazar. Dear Huldy: I must tell you 'bout tjie way that our new deacon s Has sot the church folks by the cars to use mat mode o speakin'. It's just that orful voice of his'n But, law! Id best begin y And tell mystery straight ahead, of else things won't fit iu. Last spring we thought that we teas bles- sexl,;to think that Deacon Thrush Was coming up from Simpkinsville to ; live in Uedarbrush. "He'll be a pillar in our church," says! lamer, tne nrst thing. y I wish he was a pillar Huldy, for men! he couldn't ring. He bought the Joneses' farm, you know,! and moved in last of May, But that first time he come to church I can't fbrgit that day; The openin' hymn was skursly read, the choir was just a-nsin7, j When everybody turned and looked, a sound came so surprising Twas something like ihe old church bell, 'twas something like the ocean, 'Twas most like 'Bijah Morrow's bull, ac-f cording to my notion. It fairly drowned iny playin' out; it left the tune behind: Jnever thought that such a voice could! ! come from human kind. Like thunder-claps and factory gear I through all our heads 'twas ringing, And, Huldy, it was nothin' else than Dea con Thrush a-singin'! I Yes, there he sot, with book in hand, a peaceful and as calm j As if he thought his duty lay in murder ing that poor psalm. ' ' He never see the old folks' smiles, he never heerd the giggle I ' j That wentoup-from the gallery. I watch ed our parson wriggle And fidget in the pulpit, while poor fa - ther's head-was shakin'; But on went Deacon Thrush, and seemed real comfort to be takin'. And when we stopped he couldn't stop, he'd got sech headway on; ' His voice went boomin' up and down,; land flatterin' so forlorn That, Jhough he tried to choke it off, it mixed up with the text, And made poor Parson Edwards skip his! words, and then look vexed. j, I couldn't hear that sermon, Huldy; my thoughts was ali astray, A-woudering ef Deacon Thrush would sing agen that day. I might have spared my thinkin', though, for that misguided man Jest started off the same old way before the rest began. -But when the second verse was reached: s the choir put down their books; I stopped my playin'; back and forth we cst despairin' looks; The boys set up to. laugh agen; the par son raised his hand Aud shouted, but the noise was sech we icouldn't understand; While Deacon Thrush was leaning back, his eyelids nearly closin', A-siugin' like an angel on a bed of clouds reposin'. I'll have to cut my story short. Next day they called a meeting, Resolved to keep poor Dearon Thrush sech singiu' from repeat in'. They 'pointed Uncle Job to go with father and request That Deacon Thrush would kindly leave -the singin' tothe rest. Perhaps you think he took the hint? Then, Huldy, you're mistaken. He listened till they'd -said their say, t b e n , wi t h t h e sin i 1 es a-brea kin', He answered, jest as cheerfully : " Yes, brethering yes, I know I have my faults: I sometimes get the tuue a leetle slow, . Audsbmetiraes, trying to ketch up, 1 take an extry flight, But takin' one verse with the next, that : makes things jest come right. Now when you ask ,me not to sing, why, breathering, I can't do it: Singin' 's ray duty and delight, and I must jest pursue it. And while I -tread this vale of tears, a sin ful x:hild of dust, Rejoicin' is my privilege rejoice I will and must." . Well, 'twan't no use, as Uncle Job and father said next day; The deacon, though a pious man, was sot in his own way. He's sung in meetin' ever sencc there's not a seat to spare ; And oh! sech sinful whisperin' and nud- gin everywhere! Then, when the hymns is given out, you I hear a gineral "Hush!" While everybody's eyes and ears is turn- -ed to Deacon Inrush. ;A BOOK OF WONDERS, FREE.

Progrlf?sive Farmer, j Before the days of trusjts, pool;, combines and monopolistic j conspira cies, any appreciable decline Or advance 111 the price of any of the leading com mercial articles was controlled ordi narily by the law of supply and" de mand. But that day has passed. The law of trade i.s now the dictum of the money gamblers of the world, and its limit is defined only by the greet! aud avarice of these men. . It is not at all unusual to. bje informed by telegraph! that a combination has just been com pleted among the. monopolists by which the price on some leading article, some necessary of life and which is in uni versal demand, has been advanced so as to put in their pockets millions of dollars. And this outrageous system of robbery and plunder is growing more greedy and more bold and stron ger every day. And yet Congress sits idly by, while the helpless people are being filched. So if there be an ad vance in the price of flour, sugar, meat, coffee or any other article, it is no evidence that it is scarcer, neither is it any evidence that the producer gets any of the benefits of the -Advanced price. ; Recently, we have been informed that the price of all manipulated fer tilizers is advanced from $2,50 to 5,00 per ton. We have been unable to trace the . ause for this advance. The only reason we have been enabled to get is that-the ingredients imported from for eign countries are much higher than last season. When we ask why this should be, we get no answer. We know that trusts and rings can be for med ill Europe as easily as in this country; we know also that monopo lists and "amblers of hoth countries can eaMly combine, to raise tne price of these goods. We have seen no thing, either from the manufacturers, the importers or the dealers iu these goods, attempting to explain the mat ter. Hence, we conclude that it is another game for robbing the cotton and tobacco farmers of the South. Whether this be true or no, the fact remains that this advanced price, from whatever cause, will cost the farmers of the South not less than 4,000,000, of which the North Carolina farmers will pav not less (if they use the usual amount of fertiliz rs) Jthan 300,000. Will their lands make more cotton per acre this year than they did in 1888? Will they get a higher price for the cotton 3 hen mudeK No. Then how can the farr&er afford to buy these fer- The Hole in the Wa!L' s. WHAT LED TO THE ORIGIN" OF THE U. SENATE RESTAUR A NT.

One of the Senators suggested to John Beall, who was surgeant-at-arm away back in thirties, that it would be a good thing to have a little luncheon set near by the hall, where hungry Senators could run out and get a. bite to eat. "SoBealls wife boiled hams and made bread and Beall brought them down and set them up in a little circu lar room just north of the rotunda and on the east side of the corridor. Soon he added picles, and the place lecome very popular.

For a long tiriie the Senators used to go in there and help themselves to what 'they wanted, and the expense was run in the contingent account, as horse hire or something like that. After a time the stock got so large and popular that it was no uncommon thing to see a dozen Senators and t heir friends iu their drii.king aud having good times. The little room, hot more than twelve or fifteen feet in diameter, and taking its name from the fact that j it was simply a hole in the ws.ll, light ed on ly by one window, was often badly crowded, and a good deal of confusion resulted in the arrangement of the stock, so that tli3 S u ttor who Ivi l a favorate brand of liquor had much trouble in finding it.

We are glad to see the Alliances througotit our State and the States of South Car olina, Georgia, Alabama and Missis sippi, discussing this important matter, aud that they are resolving that they will have some voice in it. It has ben our sincere conviction for years that our farmers are wasting millions of dollars a year in the use of fertilizers. Let them resolve to grow less cetton and tobacco, to use less commercial fertilizers, to raise more grass, more grain and more stock, and improve their farms. To have a prosperous farm they must have stock, and to have stock they must hav. plenty of provender for it. Let the Alliances all over the South adopt this policy and it will not be ten years before we will see aud feel its happy results. We can do without commercial fer tilizers, and before our farmers will sub mit to a robberythey should refuse to use a single pound. Danger of the Telephcns.
