The maiden aunt, in her straight-backed chair.
With a flush on her pale and wrinkled cheek,
And a horrified, mortified, mystified air;
Was just about to speak.
And the maiden nioce a nice little maid
Stood meekly twirling her thumbs about,
With a half-triumphant, half-afraid.
And wholly bewitching pout.
Said the ra li leu aunt: ''Will you please ex
plain, What your beads were doing so close together!
You could easily, I assure you. Jane,
Have knocked me dowu with a feather.
"When I think of your bringing up my care.

And what you replied. This is quite a trial,
So do not stand there and hang your head.
Or attempt the least denial!

SECRETS OF THE ORDER REVEALED TRIB
ULATIOXS OF A CANDIDATE.
OneMcKeever has been telling the
editor of the Elberton, Ga., Star his
experience in i lininsr the alliance. He
seems to have had a rough time and
will not take the other seventeen de
grees. His story runs:
k I made np my mind to join the al
liance, and yesterday, donning my
Sundav-go-to-nieeting clothes, repaired
to the schoaL house where the order
met, and sent in my application by a
neighbor who was a charter member.
In flue season the glad tidings were
conveyed to me that I had been ballot
ted for and accepted, aud boiling over
with eager gratification, followed my
conductor into the wood-room ad join
ping the main building. Heie my
guard made our presence known by
picking up a section of a fence rail and
rapping three limes en th" floor. This
gentle signal was answered by three
raps from within and the query:
Who conies there? "
"A horn v-handed son of toil, arro-
ing in the darkness, and anxious to
have the light or the alliance shed
upon him," replied my guide.
u Bie.ik down the barricade that
stands between a Brother Farmer and
light and admit the applicant, spoke a
soiioroHS voice from within.
Just at that instant the old door,
winch had been removed from its hin
ges, was kicked over and striking me
on top of the head raised this lump
von see here. I thought it was an ac-
: cident at the time and so made up my
mind to gnu and bear the pain.
Two stout men stepped forth and
violently seizing me by the arms, I was
carried in to the middle of the main room
I saw that the house was pretty well
' filled with spectators. Sitting on top
' of a cotton bale was the Grand Mogul
'of the order, as I afterwards learned,
j On his right a section of rail fence had
been built and astride this was sitting
J another officer vn ith a pile of guano
sacks under him which I lielieve was
the Grand Secretary. I noticed that
all ihe officers and their assistants were
in their shirt sleeves, and wore jeans
pants held up by one suspender each.
These parties, I afterward learned, rep
resented the poverty-stricken condition
of the farmers. In one corner stood
six-men, arrayed in their best store
clothes and plug hats, and each had a
feather pillow rammed into his pants
to represent high living, who were to
act as merchants. 1 had scarcely time
to take a hasty glance around the room
when a fellow stepped up and dashed
about a pint of guano in my face, and
before 1 bad time to wipe uiy eves or
spit out the stuff, ray sight was ob
scured by an old guano sack--that
didn't smell by any means like the last
rose of summer Ifeiug bound over my
orbs of vision. I w.ts then led three
times around the room and halted in
front of the Grand Tycoon on the cot
" Benighted brother farmer, who
hath been groping in darkness, the
light of organized agriculturists is now
about to break npon you " spake
the Tycoon. "You ire now within
the sacred precincts of the Farmer's
Alliance, and in order to fix indellibly
on your mind great truths, we will
proceed to carry you through the or
dealsif initiation. That handful of
guano cast into your eyes is intended
to show you the folly of an undue use
of this ex jiensive commodity. A lim
ited use of guano in the right place is
proper; but you will not, I hope, soon
forget the lesson taught you about its
abuse. Now carry the benighted bro

too close intimacy with a fence. It is
the habit of too many farmers to sit

work his crop. We trust that the les

the centre of the room. Soon I heard
a scuffling at the door, and the six fel
lows representing merchants torced
into the rj,un a little spotted bull calf,
as wild as a Texas pony. He was
then brought up alongside of me, and
the pair of us yoked together, one of
the merchants holding a rope tied in
a ring of the yoke. I thougSib I had
seen pretty tough times, but I aoon
knew that my past experience was but
child s play compared with the ordeal
before me. That little bull and I were
turned loose, and the time we made
around that room would shame a race
horse. 1 knew I had to keep up or my
neck would be broken. It had always
been a mystery to me how it steer
could turn his yoke, but it is no longer
a secret. The bull turned his twice
and I turned mine three times. I
yelled for some one to head us, but the
louder I hollered the Taster the little
bull traveled. Just as I gave m3rself
up for lost we were brought loa.'taiwt
still, the yoke removed from my bruis
ed and bleeding neck, and I was again
led before the Grand I y coon, who con
solingly addressed me thusly:
"Benighted brother, seeking .visdom,
the lesson you have just received is to
impress upon your mind the sad truth
that you are but a beast of burden for

merchants, who forcibly tied a strong
cord around each of my thumbs, aud
in a twinkling I was suspended to a
ridge pole. That I yelled with pain
and begged for mercy, it is needless to
add. One of my torturers demanded
to know how much cash would pay
him to be released. I offered all the
money in my pockets, which was 35
cents. He agreed to let me down for
$1 cash or $10 on credit, secured by
mortgage, lien, deed of gift and waiver

children. I eargerly accepted, and on
being released stepped to the table, ami

The International GoBfrtti of American
The congress of the three Americas
was formerly opened on October 21, at
Washington, D. C. The Hon. Jas. G.
Blaine, Secretary of State of the Uni
ted States, was elected president, and
Senor Romero, minister from Mexico,
was at the head of a committee to re
port at the meeting of the congress
upon a list of committee for consider
ation of the different subjects to be dis
cussed. As none of the delegates to
the congress hare power in full to act
independently of their government, the
congress1 action will be in the nature
of advice to the different countries.
But the results of the convention must
be of the highest importance.
On the day mentioned above, repre
sentatives delegated from the follow
ing countries were present: Hondu
ras. Mexico, Nicaraugue, Peru, Salva
dor, Uruguay, Venezuela, Bolivia,
Brazil, Columbia, Costa Rica, Guate
mala, United States. In conference
these delegates, together with repre
sentatives of the Spanish-American
Commercial Union, a.e to determine
what measures can be taken to increase
commerce between the political di
visions of the three Americas, to rec
ommend changes in our modifications
of existing international relation, and
to give as practical a meaning as pos
sible to the doctrine of America for
Americans. In Europe the citizens of
the western hemisphere sees much that
is repugnant to his ideas. Labor is
there established on a basis that does
not accord with our ideas. Standing
armies and compulsory military service.
war of great expense both as regard
lives and the general resources of life.
immense and expensive navies, are not
attractive objects for our imitation-.
in his address to the convention.
i Mr. Blaine spoke of the immensity of
the-interests represented. Nearly l j
X)0,000 of sqa re mile', or an area
three times as Urge as .all Europe, with
120,(XX),0(K) of population, weio in
cluded in the countries of the conven
tion. His address was a plea for closer
commercial relationship, for co-operation
and confidence to do away with
the necessity for the maintenance of
the balance of power, and for friend
ship instead of force as the dictator of
international relations. After some
further addresses the congress adjourn
ed until Monday, November 18th.
The intermediate time will le devoted
to a forty day excursion through the
United States, by invitation of the
government. A magnificent train, the
finest in equipment that has ever been
made up, is to transport them to the
leading points of iuterest of the country.
While the productions of America,
especially in the line of machinery,
enjoy a world-wide reputation, they are
not on that account free from compe
tition. Not only have the manufac
turer's of this country open rivals, but
a species of underhand competition is
at work. Foreigh producers copy the
forms and characteristics of our goods
in cheap material, and thus succeed in
placing them iu markets which have
been worked np by ourselves. The
South American couu tries are a favor
ite field for this form of competjtiou.
This is but a side issue. The main
fact is that the great opening for trade

operate in the same unfavorable way
There is one element in the problem,
apparently but not in reality a minor
one, that admits of easy attack. Com
paratively few people realize how im
perfect are our postal arrangements
with these countries. Letters can be
sent by regular mail, but of the proper
postal facilities for business there is a
great deficiency. Millions of dollars
worth of business is transacted annu
ally within the United States through
the post office. Samples of goods are
sent by mail, and selections are made
from them as the bahis of orders to be
in turjsj sent by mail, and paid for by
nostaF monev orders. The Federal
! (Government in providing these
. . ... nf
ties appears in iv toiinnun"
a regulator of commerce between the
States. The post omce has already
become an important element in the
actual business transactions of buying
and selling in this country, and with
the establishment of a more compre
hensive parcels post, will become a still
If we turn to the southern countries
and colonies all appears different.
Over twenty-five independent states
and colonies on the continent and
islands are among them. With the
exception of a few iiuimportant isl
ands, there is practically only a letter
post betweeu us and them. Money
orders cannot be sent, so that without
special accounts, small financial trans
actions are debarred.
It is safe to say that no more easily
executed and important improvement
can fall within the scope of delibera
tion of the congress. The business of
sending samples by mail implies the
necessity of cheap postal rates. Then
as a third innovation, an effective par
eel post should be established.
The Blue-Glass Craze.
BROWNSEQCAUD'S ELIXIR RECALLS ONE
OF THE FUNNIEST MEDICAL EXCITE
MENTS. St. Louis Globe-Democrat.
In 1870 General Pleasant on nnh-
lished a work ful I v explaining his the
ory a to the infallibility of blue glass
iur invigorating ami retaining or re
storing health. In a subsequent edi
tion he added a list of testimonals
from gnteful patients who professed
to h ire derived immense benefits from
the treatment, an i also the full text of
the spec i Heat ion for his patients. His
hook Was entitled "Blue Rav of the
Sunlight and of the Blue Color of the
Sky in Developing Animal and Vege
table Life, in Arresting Disease, and
in Restoring Health in Acute and
Chronic Diseases in Human and Do
mestic Animals. ' The General adorn
ed the frontispiece with a rather un
fortunate quotation: "If this theory-
oe true it upsets all other theories.
The converse seems to have been very
satisfactorily established. A full re
cord of the General's military exper
ience is also given, apparently as

1 he ar.th r s hrst experiments were
on grape vines. In his greenhouse
he substituted blue for white glass in
every eighth row and succeeded in
producing gmpes so fine that all others
were rendered insignificant beside them.
In 1809 he treated some hogs to a sim
ilar dose and some little pigs grew and
thrived so well that a royal road to a
fortune in hog-raising seemed to have
been found. Next he tried the effect of
blue glass od an Alderney bull calf,
.which grew six inches almost as by a
miracle and became a veritableSaul
among the little calves on the estate.
From hogs and cattle the descent to
poultry was short and easy, and a
chicken-house wa fitted with just the
right proportion of blue glass. The

.oiu-v as icji: its they emerged fn m
the shell, and those that escaped the
usual a:.d proper spring chicken route
to oblivion grew into splendidly devel
oped and plumaged birds.
It needed not implicit belief in Dar
winism to induce the General to ap
ply his experiments to men and wom
en. Architects would be required to
so arrange buildings its to insure the
introduction of the elixir-like rays so
that the owners and occupiers might
enjoy the marvelous advantages, and
"mankind will then not only be able
to live fast, but can live long aud also
Judged by the fact that the blue
glass craze, general as it was during
the years 1876 and part of 1877, died
out quietly and has long since been
decently interred, some of the testi
monials as to its efficacy from very
funny leading. They show that if all
the writers meant what they wrote
General Pleasanton invented an elixir
to cure not only every ailment but to
supersede surgery and obstetrics. In
fact it mast nave ueen omnipotent.
A man with varicose veins was able to
throw away his silk stocking after
sleeping in a room a few nights ..
blue glass in the windows. 'Typhoid'
patients, after a day or two, anise like
giants refreshed and dismissed their
physicians. A bald-headed lady was
delighted to discover an embryo crop
of hair after seven days treatment,
while another grateful recipient en
larged on the marvelous effects of blue
grass on his ancient mule. This once
gray and festive quadruped had been
deaf for ten years, its limbs were stiff,
and it was a very bad way; but after
blue .grass was inserted in the stable
window J;ick braced up, could hear the
word "oats" if only whispered, could
kick its owner across the yard, and
generally acted like a vivacious three-year-old.
Excitement ran high and the craza
traveled north, south, east and west.
The wildest stories of cures were cirr
ciliated. Men heard of objeets of pub
lic sympathy getting cured almost
without money and without price and
entirely without trouble, for never
was there so passive treatment recom
mended, nor one less hampered with
direction as to what should and should
not be eaten and what habits or vices
should be abandoned. The demand
for blue glass was such as the most

In the first place, no withstanding
the fact that the value of Hie farm
lands in Ohio under mortgage is muck
greater than those in Gorgia, the farms
are in far superior condition. The
mortgages in almost every instance
are for improvements. Every farm iu
the State, ut least everyone the Geor
gians saw, was as clean and neat as
garden. The faim hone re, as a
rule, small, but pretty modem cottage

barns are sujierior to the dwellings.
The first story generally of stone or

pleasing appearance. The ground floors
are for stock and vehicles, the sizes
averaging room for from twenty tonne

The farms the State over will' aver

quantity of commercial fertilisers. In
fact many of the farmer use no-commercial
fertilizers at all.
However, the secret of the great yield

ly conceded to be due to the manner in
which their lands are prepared When
the Ohioians were informed by the
Georgia farmers that iu Georgia we
never go dowu in plowing more than
four niches, and the average three
they were amazed and every one re

Georgia farmers made nothing. In
Ohio they never plow less than eight
inches deep, and often as much
as twelve. By -this deep plow
ing, three horses being used to each
plow, they claim that the soil will pro
duce much more and that itdoes not
require as much fertilizer.
Again, there is nothing lost on an
Onio farm. The strictest eeoinnmy is
studied and executed. Every person
on the farm has his duties and they
are carried out to the letter. The la
borers sire few but are well paid and
required to work. Every member of
the fanner's family works, and the
women do us much as the men. In
fact farming in Ohio has been reduced
to the most economical system, but
every farmer lives well his home is
comfortable and his table is invariably
laden with the lie-t the land affords.
The beauty of it, tuiwever. is that every
thingjs raised-ou the farm.
I think the great need of a Georgia
farm is grass, stock and manure. I
would be glad Georgia farmers
could be induced, to practice the sys
tem and economy uniformly followed ;
by Ohio farmers. .
The system uf farming and the crops .
cultivated in Ohio have constancy re-"
turned veget ible matter to the soil.1"
in Georgia our clem culture has as
constantly withdrawn it, and our lands
are, therefore left barren aud denuded.
Again, you understand that their
grasses induce and maintain the rais
ing of stock which, together with the
immense amount of straw and waste
vegetable matter, makes large accumu
lations of very rich barnyard manure.
All this is carefully handled in Ohio
and judiciously applied to the lands.
Ohio farmers rely alnn st exclusively
upon clover and barnyard manure, to?
gether with proper rotation of their
crops. Georgia farmers depend too
much upon commercial niaiiures and
allow their fields to be too closely glean
ed by stock.

and invest it in Georgia land aud.niA??

investment of $3,1 H HI.
