Deacon Thrash in Meeting.
LETTER FROM HANNAH BROWN TO SISTER
. HULDAH.
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.

Tha AdvaaSa in, the Pica of Fcrtil-

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-

"Tell me about the hole in the

"Well, it was one of the famous in
stitutions of our early days. I'll givt
you a full ! history of itsomething
that has never beea told in print. It
had its origin in. bam ani bread. 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. Then somebody sug
gested to Beall that there ought ta be
a bottle of whiskey there, and after the
whiskey had been procured there canie
a demand for gin, rum, brany, wine
and all sorts of things. In a little
while the place became a regular sa

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.
Thus it became necessary to put a
man in charge, and after a time the
expense became so great that it was not
easy to work it off in the contingent
account. Then the Senators were re
quired to pay for what, they go and

djo nof, believe he can do 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.
