Only a Private."
capt. r. w. Dxwgoy.
I.
Only a private! his jacket of gray
Is stained by the smoke and the dust;
As Bayard, he's brave; as Rupert, he's gay;
Reckless as Murat in heat of the fray.
But God is his only trust.
- .I II. "
Only a privatel to march and to fight,
To suffer and starve and be strong;
With knowledge enough to know that the
might
Of justice and truth, and freedom of right,
in the end must crush out the wrong.
III.
Only a prviate! no ribbon or star
Shall gild with false glory his nam!
No honor for him in braid or in bar,
His Legion of Honor is only a scar,
And his wounds are his roll of fame!
IV.
Only a private! one more here slain
Ou the field lies silent and still!
And in the far South a wife prays in vain
One clasp of the hand she may ne'er clasp
again,
One kiss fioin the lips that are still.
Only a private! there let him sleep!
lie will need no tablet or stone:
For the mosses and vines o'er his grave will
creep,
And al night the stars through the clouds will
peep, ;
And watch him who lies there alone.
VI.
Only a martyr! 'ho fought and who fell
Unknown and unmarked in the strife! -But
still as he lies in his lonely cell
Angel and Seraph the legend shall tell
Such'death is eternal life!
Carnegie's Advice to Young Men.
Youth's Companion : Yon are about
to start in life and it is well that
young men should begin at the bigin
uing and occupy the most subordinate
positions. Manv of the business men
of Pittsburg had a serious responsibil
ity thrust upon them at the very
thresholds their career, lhey were
introduced to the broom, and spent the
first hours of their business lives
sweeeping out the office
I wasa sweeper myself, and who do
you suppose my fellow sweepers were?
David McCargo, now superintendent of
the Alleghaney Valley railroad; Robert
Pitcairn, superintendent of the Penn
sylvania railroad; and Mr. Moreland,
city attorney of Pittsburg.
Begin at the beginning, but aim high.
1 would not give a fig for the jrouiig
man who does not already see himself
the partner or head of some important
firm.
There are three dangers in your
path. The first is the drinking of
Uquor. The second is speculation, the
third is "indorsing."
When I was a telegraph operator in
Pittsburg I knew all the men who
speculated. . They were not our citi
zens of firstj'epute. They were re
garded with suspicion. I have lived
to see all of them ruined, bankrupt in
money and character. 1 here is scarce
ly an instance of a man who hasraade
a fortune by speculation and kept it.

paper to se& how his speculative ven
tures are likely to result tmhts himself

sistent and concentrated energy upon
which depends the permanent success
and often the very safety of his main
business. The thorough man of bus
iness knows that only by years of pa
tient, unremitting attention to affairs
can he earn his reward which is the

vised means of thiMtttainment of ends
Nothing is more essential to young
business men than untarnished credit
aid nothing kills credit sooner than
the knowledge in any bank board than
a man who engages in speculation.
How can a man be credited whose re
sources may be swept away in one hour
by a panic among gamblers? Resolve
to be business men but speculators
never.
The tBird danger is the perilous
habit of endorsing notes: It appears
to your generous instincts and you say,
"How can I refuse to lend my name
only toassist a ' friend?"' It is be
cause there is so much that is true and
commendable in that view that the
practice is so dangerous. If yon owe
anything, all of your capital and all of
yokir effects are a solemn trust in your
hands to be held inviolate for the se-
curityjottnosewnonaye uyou.

Not one who is content to give so

ars in return, but one who devotes his

Our young partners in Carnegie
Brothers5 have won their spurs by
showing that we did uot know half as
well what was wasted as they did.
There is one sure mark of tte com
ing millionaire: his revenues always
exceed his expenditures. Ha begins to
save as soon as he begins to earn, for
every $100 yon can produce as the re
sult of hard-won savings, Midas, in
search of a partner, will lend on credit
$1,000; for every $1,000, $50,000. ,
It is not capital that your seniors re
quire, it is the man that has proven he
has the business habit that nuke cap
ital. Begin at once to lay up some
thing. It is the first hundred dollars
that tells.
And here is the prime condition of
success, the great secret; concentrate
your energy, thought .and capital ex
clusively upon the business m which
you are engaged. Having begun on
one line resolve to fight it out on that
line; to lead in it; adopt every improve
ment, have- the best machinery and
know the most about it.
Finally, do not be impatient, for,
as Emerson says, "No one can cheat
you out of the ultimate success but
yourselves. lew Western Hail tray

The Protection We Want.
vv e are ror protection, out it is pro
tection for agriculture, the lending in
dustry of the South and West, the fun
damental in Just ry of the whole coun
try. We hold that it is entitled to
some consideration at the bauds of our
law-raukers. We hold that it is high
time the infant industries of the North
which have grown iutd lusty giants, to
say the least of them, were allowed to
some extent to look after themselves
and that the languishing interest of the
farmers should receive some atteirtiou
It is the basis interest of the land and
while it is depressed as it is now and
has been since the republicans estab
lished their high protection principle
no other interest can prosper save as a
fungoid growth, so to speak, on the
body of the people.
Legislation has been steadily away
from the interests of agriculture ever
since the republican party secured the
. ii mm rn i
airection or public aiiairs. The pre
seni high tariff taxation, "the surplus
revenue, the tax on raw materials, is
directly against the wefare of the far
mer. The mortgaged West cries out
for relief. The South under the al
most crushing burden it has to bear
waiting patiently for the day when its
load might be lilted and its leading in
terest be allowed at least an even
chance to make headway toward inde
pendence. It is waiting still. The
democratic administration just ended
did what it could for the refiel of the
toiling masses. Our democratic presi
dent pleaded as few men have done
even in this republic of free and equal
citizens for justice to the toilers, for

"Give him a cheer." The hearty
words came from the lips of some one
in the crowd gathered round a building
enveloped, in flames, and were prompt
ed by the momentary faltering or a
brave fireman at the final effort that
was needed to save a human life. In
stantly hats were waving in the air,
and above the crackling and roaring of

below fell upon tHe ears of the waver

I have in mind a young girl who
went through life under a cloud. She
had many .things' to discourage her.
She was misrepresented and misunder
stood. No one spoke a cheering word
to her, or offered to lend a hand when
troubles thickened about her. People
did not understand her shrinking na
ture. They mistook her seclusiveness
for pride until in a fit of desperation
she took away the life Got! had given
her. A little note among her effects
explained the seemingly rash act. It
ran thus: "1 can endure this strain no
longer. If I only had help to carry
my burden I would try to be brave
and stand up under its weight, but
in all this wide viorld I have not
one friend. No one has ever given me
a cheering word, or dropped a tear of
pity over my hard fate. ' Then over
her icy form the neighbors lamented
their lack of sympathy, and tears of
regret in plenty fell about the still
white face now mute in death.
Enough appreciative tender words to
have gladdened her whole life were
wasted around her coffin and over her
grave. But what good did they dj
when they fell upon the ears hushed in
death?
"Give them a cheer." A host of
weary, toiling men and women are to
day calling loudly for cheering words
and helpful ministries. Do not krep
the cheer that would bless them lying
idly in your hearts or tremblingly un
said upon your lips to scatter around
their tombs when they are dead,
bring the flowers that you are keeping
for their coffins and strew along their
paths te-day while they are alive to
inhale their sweet fragrance.
"Give them a cheer." Words of
honest praise will spoil no man. If
i m
you gain a blessing from a sermon or
a prayer, it will encourage the pre.icn
er to hear vou say. If some one's
holy living strengthens you and helps
you on to a better life, would he not
be happier to know of the unconscious
influence he is exerting?
"Give him a cheer." No matter
where, or when, or how yon come in
contact with poor struggling souls,
lend them a hand give them a hand
give them a cheer that will help
them to live better, nobler lives.

The Hegro Emigration.
The present- indications boint to a
pretty general exodus of the negroes of
iL!. ii i rn. .
mis oiaie. a here are three forces nl
mighty forces with the neero -at work-
to mak this movement a general one.
Tw t. 1 1.1 . " ... ! ...
mc uiai, uiaue me party wun wmch
they have allied themselves since eman
cipation, are encouraging them to go.
inei; a gooa many oi those, who have
already gone We-t are writing' back
such letters to their old .friends,, con
cerning the advantages of the move.
mat mose iest Denina are on hre to get
off. The third and most nofpnt far
that is moving them, is the counten
ance given the movement by the negro
preachers. They are preachiag emi
gration from .every pulpit. These
three influences combined are power
ful enough to move nine-tenths of the
negroes from the State in the next two
years.
W hat then are we to do? That is
the question. Of course the negroes
have the right to go as they please; we
can do nothing to keep them here, nor
should we be so inclined if we had the
power. We may as well make up our
minds to their going, and turn our at
tention to what is to be done after they
are goie. The State will probably
suffer for a short time from his with
drawal of so many laborers, but in a
short time it will recover and be better
off for the riddance of so many negroes.
The thing to be done is for the white
people to go to work and tend' their
own lands, instead of having the ne
groes do it for them.
What's the matter with us now is
that we have too many white men who
are depending for a living on the work
of negroes. The farmers will have to
stop sending their sons to towns, seek
ing employment as clerks, &c but
must put them to work on the farms.
Now it is too frequently the case that as
a young fellow gets a tolerable educa
tion he is above working on a farm,
but mint go to town and become a
gentleman. Why hecan'ta be as much
a gentleman ou the farm as when be
hind the counter? It is every bit as
honorable, indeed we have more respect
for the young man who prefers to re
main on his farm and produce some
thing, than for the one who comes to
town and tries to play the dandy un
der hair parted in the middle and be
hind the abominable cigarette.
Holding the handles of a plow is
every bit as honorable as measuring
calico, and is decidedly 'more so than
loafing around town doing nothing. It
is better to make ones self a man than
a gentleman. God did not make Adam
a gentleman; He made him a man,
and that is what each boy in North
Carolina should strive to make himself.
Let the negroes go and let the white
people tend their own lands and there
by show that they think farming as
honorable an occupation as preaching,
practicing law or medicine or any other
calling. Then our old State will be
gin to go out of tb? wood. Durham

A Brave Man and a Bold Captain.
Is Mr. Flagler the proprietor of the
Ponce de Leon Hotel, f St. Augus
tine, Fla., if we may judge from the
following taken frcm the Baltimore
Sun:
"Curious stories come from the
Ponce de Leon Hotel in St. Augustine.
Mr. Flagler's expenditure there now
amounts to nearly $0,000,000. Early
In January there were only twelv
guests in the hotel. At the same time
two bands were engaged there. One
was a Spanish band that played during
the dinner hour on mandolins and
sang quaint Spanish songs. The other
was a famous New York band, which
played in the courts at the morning
and evenio concerts. Mr. Seavey, the
manager of the hotel, wrote Mr. Flag
ler and suggestd as there were only
twelve guests in the house, he dispense
with one of the bands. -Mr. l?iaglr
wrote back that he didn't want any
-susaestions from Mr. Sevey as to how
Lexpeuses should be decreased, but that
f he had anything to soy as to how the
attractiveness of the hotel could be in
creased, he would be glad to hear from
him. Mr. Flagler does not seem to be
discouraged. He has just bought the
railroad running from &t. Augustine
o Palatka and from bt. Augustine to
Jacksonville. Last Sunday he changed
both of these to broad guage ro.ids and
sliortened the schedule more than half.
He is going to Uuihl a bridge oyer the
St. John river so that the vestibule
rains can run into" St. Augustine, to
cost $300,000, a magnificent chnrch
and a union depot that will cost $200,
000. This depot he will surround with
superb park. He is paving every
street running to -the hotel with as-
nhalt fat his own expense) to makebt.

Aujnw ue the grandest pleasure spot
on earth. His Russian baths in the
Alcazar cost $300,000, and are luxuri
ous be3ond description. He says he
will spend $20.000,UU0 before he has
completed his pleasure plant to meet
his ideas.
The use of corrugated iron for dwel
ling honses is bow recommended, it be
ing urged that they would be much
cheaper than houses of: brick or stone.
Being lined with wood, they would

A Story With a Moral.
Greensboro Patriot,
For the benefit of the merchants and
property-owners of the city of Greens
boro we wish to eive here thesuksbmr
of what was said a short time since on
a rail way train to the writer, by a very
intelligent commercial tourist (euphem
ism ) or drummer (Rood sensible ver
nacular.)
"Greensboro is a nice little city and
full of nice people" said he: "but so
far from having acquired the art of
blowing their own trumpet, they have
allowed that useful little instrument to
fall into 'innocous desuetude.' " I fre
quently stop over in the place, and
never iaii to note some improvement.
But I am astonished at the stolid in

their money tack;' If I say, 4I learn
that thero is talk of establishing a cot

spondency will break the backbone
of the best kind of thrift and prosper

The above needs no comment and is
a truthful report of an actual conversa
tion.
Why. just hear a Duih im man talk!
Anybody, would think the streets were
paved with gold and the houses built
of marble, and that they were about
to tear up the pavements because there
was some alloy in the precious metal.
and tear down the houses because the
marble was stained by the weather; a
Charlotte man almost convinces you
that his place i just a little behind
New York ; and if you ask a Fayettc
ville man how the old town is getting
on he says : " W h y, we are j ust getting
to hump ourselves. YTe now have the
most abundant water power in the
State, but the completion of
the Cape Fear & Yadkin y alley Rail
way is going to develop this section so
wonderfully that we intend fr increase
our power by canaling from the Cape
Fear. We will have hundreds of thou
sands of spindles moving in a year or
