" Big time to-night," the drummers said,
As to supper they Fat them down ;
"To-morrow's Sunday, and now's our
To illuminate the town."
" Good ! " cried Bill Barnes, the j oiliest
The favorite of all ;
" Yes, let's forget our troubles now
Aud hold high carnival."
The supper done, the mail arrives;
Each man his letters scanning,
With fresh quotations up or down
His- busy brain is t ramming.
Bull Bill why what's come over him
Why turned so quick about?
He says, just as his pards start forth,
" I guess I won't go out."
His letter bore no written word,
No prayer from vice to flee ;
Only a tracing of a hand
A baby Land of three.
What picture comes before his mind
What does his memory paint ?
A baby hand at mother's knee
His little white-robed saint.
What cares a man for ridicule
Who wins a victory grand ?
Bill slept in peace, his brow was smoothed
By a shadowy little hand.
Naught like the weak things of this world
The power of sin withstands ;
To shield between man's soul and wrong
Like a little baby hand.

VKlTTEN IN REPLY TC THE INVITATION

Beauyoir, Miss.. Oct.'ISSO.
Messrs. Wharton J. Green. James C.
Mijtea. C. V. liromlfoot, AY7 W.
Rj, IT. C. McDuffie, Com mil tee:
Gentlemen Your letter inviting
me to attend North Carolina's centen
nial, to be held at Fayetteviile on the
21st of Novomber next, was duly re
ceived, but this acknowledgement has
becMi delayed under the hope that au
hr. prove me nt in 1113- health would en
able me to be present as invited. A
the time approaches I find that cher
ished hope tin realized and that I must
regretfully Confess mv inabilitv to inin
the eoniniL'mur.Ltive celebration
jeeu in v sincere wish to meet
with the -people of the "Old North
State" on tiie occasion which will
naturally cause Jdiein with just pride
to trace the historic river . of their
vear.s to its source in the colony of Al
All along that river stand monu
ments of fidelity to the inalienable
rights of the people, even wlun an in
fant, successfully resisting executive
usurpation and in the defence of the
piivileges guaranteed by charter boldly
defying king, lords and commons. Al
ways self-reliant, yet not vainly self
assertive, she provided for her own de
fence while giving material aid to her
neighbors, as she regarded all the Brit
ish colonies of America. Thus she
sent troops armed and equipped for
service in both Virginia and South
Carolina; also despatched a ship from
the port of Wilmington with food for
the sufferers in Boston after the
closin' of that nort bv Great Britain.
In her declaration that the cause of
Boston was the cause of all there was
not only the assertion of a community
of rights and a purpose to defend them,
but self-abnegation of the commercial
advantages which would probably ac
crue from the closing of a rival port.
Without diminution of regard for the
great and good men of the other colo
nies, I have been led to special vener
ation of the men of North Carolina, as
the first to distinctly daclare for State
independence and from the first to last
to uphold the right of a people to gov
ern themselves. I do not propose to
discuss the vexed question the Meck
lenburg resolutions of May, 1775,
which from the similarity or expres
sion to the great Declaration of Inde
pendence of July, 1770, have created
much cout -ntioir, because the claim of
North Carolina rests on a broader
foundation than the resolve of the
meeting at Mecklenburg, which de
serves to be preserved as the outburst
of a braver liberty-loving people, on
receipt of news of the combat at Con
cord between the British and citizens
o "J Massachusetts.
The broader foundations referred to
are the records of events preceding and
succeeding the meeting at Mecklen
burg and the proceedings of the Pro
vincial Congress which met at Hills-
boroin August, 1775. Before the
Congress convened North Carolina,
in disregard of opposition by the Gov
ernor, had sent delegates to represent
her in the General Congress to be held
in Philadelphia, and had denounced
the atta k on Boston and had appoint
ed committees of safety with such far
re; chi ug functions as belong to revo
lutionary times only. The famous
Stamp Act of Parliament was openly
resisted by meu of the highest reputa
tion, a vessel bringing the stamps was
seized and the commander bound not
to permit them to be landed. These
things were done in open day by men
who were not disguised, a.ud shunned
Before the Congress of the province
had assembled the last royal Governor
of North Carolina had fled to escape
from the indignation of a people who
burdened but not bent by oppression,
had resolved to lire or die as free men.
The Congress at Hillsboro went earn
estly to work not merely to declare in
dependence, but to provide the means
of maintaining it. The Congress feel
ing quite equal to the occasion, pro
ceeded to make laws for raising and
organizing troops, for supplying money
and to meet the contingency of a
blockade of her seaports, and offered
bounties to stimulate to production of
tie articles most useful in time of war.
On the 12th of April, 1770, the Con
tinental Congress being then in se
ssion, and with much diversity of
opinion as to the proper course to be
pursued under the condition of affairs,
the North Carolina Congress resolved
"That the delegates for this colony in
the Continental Congress be empower
ed to concur with the delegates of the
other colonies in declaring independen
cy and forming foreign alliances,
reserving to the colony the sole
and exclusive right of forming a con
stitution and laws for this colony,"
"This, I believe, was the first distinct
declaration f r the sepaiati n from
Great Britian and State independence,
evoke admiration. North Carolina
had by many acts of resistence to the
British authorities provoked their ven
geance, yet she dared to lead in de
fence; but no danger, however dread,
in the event of her isolation could
make her accept co-operation save
with the reservation of supermacy
in regard to her own constitution and
laws the sacred principle of "com
munity independence" and govern
ment founded on the consent of the
After haying done her whole duty
in war for independence and become a
free, sovereign and independent State,
she entered into the confederation with
these rights and powers recoguized as
unabridged. When experience proved
the Articles of Confederation to be in
adequate to the needs of goon' govern
ment she agreed to a general conven
tion for their amendment. The con
vention did not limit its labors to
amendment f the articles, but pro
ceeded to form a new plan of govern
ment, and, adhering to the cardinal
principle that government must be de
rived from the consent of the governed,
submitted the new plan to the people
of the several States to be adopted or
rejected as each by and for itself should
It is to be remembered that the Ar
ticles of Confederation for the "United
States of America" declared that "the
Union shall he perpetual," and that no
alteration should be made in the s id
articles unless it should "le confirmed
by the Legislatures of every State."
True to her creed of State sovereignty
North Carolina recognized the power
of such States as chose to do so to
withdraw from the Union, and by the
same token her own unqualified right
to decide whether or not she would
subscribe to the proposed compact for
a more perfect Union, and in which it
is to be observed the declaration for
perpetuity was omitted. In the hard
school of experience she had learned
the danger to popular liberty from a
government which could claim to be
the final judtre of its own nowers Sh
had fought a long and devastating war
for State independence, and was not
willing to put in ieoDardv the
jewel she had gained. After a careful
examination it was concluded that the
proposed constitution did not sufficient
ly guard against usurpation by the usu
al resort to implication of powers not
not expressly granted, and declined to
act upon the general afsuranee that the
deficiency would soon be supplied by
the needful amendments. In tho
meantime State after State had acceded
to the hew union until the necessarv
number had been obtained for the es
tablishment of the "constitution be
tween the States so ratifying the same."
With character is tie. elf-rl iiini Mirth
Carol ina confronted the prospect of is
olation, and calmly resolved, if so it
must be, to stand alone rather than
subject to hazard her most prized pos
session community independence.
Connding in the security ottered bv the
nrst ten amendments to the constitu
tion, especially the ninth and tenth of
the series, North Carolina voluntarily
acceded to ih new union. The t nt 1
amendment restricted the functions of
the Federal government to the exer
cise of the powers delegatethto it by th
States, all of which were expressly
stimulated. Beyond that limit noth
ing could be done rightfully. If cov
ertly done under color of law or by
reckless usurpation of an extraneous
majority which, feeling power, should
disregard right, had the State no peace
ful remedy? Could she as a State in a
confederation, the bed-rock of which
is the confederation, the bed-rock of
which is the consent of its members,
be bound by a compact which others
broke to her injury? Had her reserv
ed rights no other than a paper barrier
to protect them against invasion?
Surely the heroic patriots aud wise
statesmen of North Carolina by their
sacrifices, utterances and deeds have
shown what their answer would hae
beeu to these questions if they had
been asked on the day when in conven
tion they ratified the amended consti
tution of the UiiRod States. Htr ex
ceptional delay in ratification marks
her vigilant care for the right she had
so early asserted and so steadily main
tained. Of her it may be said, as it
was of Sir Walter Scott In his youth,
that he was "always the first in a row
and the last out of it.v
In the peaceful repose which follow
ed the Revolution all her interests
were progressive. Farms, school
houses and towns ro-e over a subdued
wilderness, and with a mothor's joy
she saw her sons distinguished in the
public service by intelligence, energy
and perserverance and by the integrity
without which all other gifts are but
as tinsel. North Carolina grew apace
in all which constitutes power until
181 2-she was required, as a State of
the Union, to resist aggressions on the
high seas in the visitation of American
merchant vessels and the impressment
Of American seamen by the armed
cruisers of Great Britain. These sea
man generally belonged to the New
England States. None, probably,
were North Carolinians. But her
old spirit was vital still the cause of
one was the cause of all, as she an
nounced when Boston was under em
bargo. At every roll call for the common
defence she answered, "flere!" When
peace returned she stacked her arms,
for which she had no prospective use.
Her love for her neighbors had been
tried and found not wanting in the
time of their need. Why should she
anticipate hostility from them.
The envy, selfish iealouslv and erim-
inal hate of a Cuin did not'eome near
to her heart. If not to susneet such
vice in others be indiscreet credulity, it
is a knightly virtue and part of an hon
est nature. In many years of military
and civil service it has been my good
fortune to know the sons of North
Carolina under circumstances of trial.
and I could make a list of those deserv
ing honorable mention whould too far
extend this letter, already, I fear, te
Devotion to principle, self-reliance
and inflexible adherence to resolution
when adopted, accompanied by conser
vative caution, were the characteristics
displayed by North Carolina in both
her colonial and State history. All
these qualities were exemplified in her
action on the day the anniversary of
which you commemorate.
If there be any, not probably to be
found with you, but possibly elsewhere,
w ho shall ask, "How then could North
Carolina consistently enact her ordi
nance of secession in 1801?" he is re
ferred to the declaration of indepen
dence of 1770, to the articles of confed
e a ion of 1777 far a perpetual union
of the States and the secession of the
States from the Union so established;
to the treaty of 1783, recognizing the
independence of the States severally
and distinctively; to the constitution
of the United States with tiie first ten
amendments; to the time honored res
olutions ot 1798 and 179(J, that from
these one and all he may ieaPthat the
State, having won her independence by
heavy sacrifices, had never surrendered
it nor had ever attempted to delegate
the inalienable rights of the people.
How valiantly her sons bore them
selves in the war between the States
the lists of killed and wounded testify.
She gave them a sacrifical offering on
the altar of the liberties their fathers
had won and had left as an inheritance
to their posterity. Many sleep far
from the land of their nativity. I'eace
to their ashes. Honor to tlejir mem
ory and the mother who bore them.
Properly keeping potatoes for the
spring ma. ket is a point of importance".
Not all who grow large quantities of
potatoes have suitable cellars in which
to store them. Thousands of bushels
must be wintered in pits. The ques
tion of so caring for them that spring
will find them sound and in perfect
condition is the proper point to con
sider. Rotting, sprouting, sweating
are the sources of injury. To prevent
these is the aim. If potatoes are sound
and healthy when put in the pits and
are properly cared for these conditions
are not likely to arise. To protect
them from heat and damp is no less
important than to protect them from
Keeping them too warm in the fall
and too cold in midwinter are general
causes of destruction to potatoes win
tered in pits. They should be in a cool
condition b.'foie being covered with
dirt. Then cover well with straw and
lightly with earth, leaving the extreme
top of the pit without earth, that any
heat remaining or generating in the
pit may escape. Protect the pits from
the sun and rain by a roof of boards,
under which there is a free circulation
of air until cold weather comes. Thus
the tubers are kept dry and cool and the
earth is dry. Frost will not peuetnite
far into dry earth, but it will go deep
into that which is wet. With the
coming of winter sufficient covering to
Iirotect against frosts will generally
;eep the tubers in excellent condition.

Sidney Moon's Debate.
Sloshin's Point. Ind., Nov. 8. The
boys got up a dehatiu1 school Tuesday
night, and 1 went over to see what they
would say. It bein the first night, and
and no one prepared, the president s.-d
they had b-tter talk about the tariff,
cause they all understood that, and at
it they went. Philo Patterson and
Jim Nixon choosed up, and each tuck
three debaters, only Jim eouldVt get
his last man to slick, aud so he tuck
Mike, my. hired man. Mike set still
and waited fer them all to have their
say, knowin' well they wouldn't be no
time for him when they got through
tellin' all they knowed." They agreed
to let every fellow on one side to sjeke
first, and then let every feller on the
other side take their turn a tacklin' it,
Philo, he tuck the pertection side,
'cause he think that way, an' he laid'
dwn the law in good shape. He
showed how a tariff law made forren
feller pay something for the privilege
of bringin' things into this country to
sell, and showed how all that privilege
money went rite strate into our treas
ury and was just as much my money
and his money as anybody else's mon
ey, and then he showed how rich that
privilege money had made us all.
Why, I felt easier a heariu' him talk
than 1 had in years an' years, cause the
surplus in the treasury amounted to so
much that my share would purly nigh
build me a new barn, and I've wanted
one a good while. And while I watch
ed Philo gittin' irladder and fladdt'r of
his increasin' riches I couldn't help
a hopiu1 he would get enough of what
was rightly his to buy his children
warmer close all round, fer they have
been purty thin-dressed ever winter
since I knowed 'em.
Then his first man showed that a
plowmakor in this country could get a
fair p Le for his goods, 'cause they
wasn't no way fer a ferrin plo.ymaker
to sell here without payin1 fer the priv
ilege more than he made on jhe plow,
which put all the plowmakin' in the
hands of our own compatriots, as lie
said. And then inabled them to run a
big bizness, and to give work to A heap
of hands, and to pay them big wages,
far bigger than was paid in furriu
countries; and all the men what work
ed on American plows could prosper
and be noble and luild their heads up
with kings and queens of countries
where the pawper labor was. He
growed awful warm about the hame
strap when he talked that way, and
held up for the nobility of American
labor, and didn't want no man to de
bace it to the level of labor in them
fur lands. But I couldn't help think
in' of the two men that cum to my
house along in May and stayed all nite.
They lied a notice from a plow maker
at South Bend that he could git his
work dun cheaper by the fellers that
just come to this country, and these
two along with about fifty others, had
to go, thoug they didn't hev a dollar
apeace fer their wives to live on while
the men got out and tramped fer a job.
A or l couldii t help thin kin about the
barrels of bread and meat we put up
here at the Point to semi to the mill
hands at New Albany what got locked
out from June to January.
An1 the third fellow, he was in fer
readin' ajtlitorial in a paper about the
matter, but the president wouldn't
stand thet, 'cause folks all over the
house objected. Then the last feller
on Philo s side he tuck the ground that
all bein' troo what his friends had sed,
it showed where a farmer's interests
was. Here was a big factory built up
cause these was a sale assured to Amer
ican goods. The factory was protect
ed by the tariff law from any man that
lived in another country and wanted to
sell his goods here, so cur factory man
got all the bizness. llevin' all the
bizness he could sell at a fair price and
pay his men fair wages, so the' could
take comfort in life and raise their
children proper. And these workmen,
gittin' fair waives, could live well. To
do that they lied to buy bred and meat
and vegetables. " That's where the
farmer get's in his work." said Philo's
debater, triumphant like. -A That's
why tanners are ter a tariff law. More
factories, more men; more men, more
bread wanted; more bread wanted, more
money fer wheat. '

was a man 'at had hoop poles fo sell.
He had a pease of flat land 'at would
n't grow another durn thing only hoop
poles and cowcumber pickles. And he
went to town to buy a shavin' uife,
and while he was their he asked the
price of hoop poles.
"Do you want to boy or sell?"' asked
"Vhat's the difference?" aoked the
"Well, if you want to sell lha are
mighty cheep. If you want to buy

So the feller, knowing he couldn't
shave a pole for a cent, sold all he had -on
the place and then went back to buy
enough shaved poles to put on his cow
cumber pickle barrels, and the sellin'
price was so high It took ail he gotfor
his crop of poles to hoop his crop of
m By this time every one was lafhV at
Sid's story, and he went on. "Now,
them fellers that kep' the hoop-pole
store was looking out for theirselves
and nobody else, and I advise you to do
the same. Sharper feller then enny of
us keeps congressmen paid to make
laws their way. They can. look out
for theirselves. You better look out
for yourselves. Don't worry about the
plowmaker, onless you're niakin' plows,
fliers enough of them to look after
theirselves. Now my hoop-pole man
shows what you git for labor. You
can't hardly sell raw wool at all, and
you can't hardly buy blankets. They
ain't no money in flax and they's
in linen. Men that dig coal and iron
are starved because the bosses sees ther
ain't no money in the bizues, and yet,
after the same coal melts that same
iron you can't buy it without mortga
ge' your farm. Things what's ther's
a tariff on costs too much, and vdirau'
I ain't got none of 'em to sell; and
things what we have got to sell is too
duru cheap, and always will lie while
we insist on helpin another an' a
smarter man tend to his on n bizness.
Now, you talk about factories makin'
wheat sell better. It don't. When a
factory man finds he can git furrin
labor cheaper than the kind -lie has
had, he gits it. The old men kin git
out, and the nfcw men kin come in, an'
ther ain't no tariff law agin em. Ri'h
men, what has got lots of thing's to.

all, if they wants to, gits a tariff" law to
purtect them; but the laborer that
ain't got nothin' to sell but labor, and
that must sell or starve, he ain't
got no purtection. His employer may
be able to give him good wages, but he
don't never do it. An' when thar's a
strike fer livin' wages the army shoots
the stuffin' out of the fellers that tries
to purtect theirselves and makes Via go

"No, you farmers are away out to the

God knows that's little good to you and
me and other men and after it makes

road companies rich, and the laborers
rich, and the merchants all rich, then,
begum, it's the farmer's turn. All
they don't want he kin hev. An',
lookin' at your close, an' your child

and barns, an' lookin' at your names
on the mortgage record up to town, an
the grocery-keeper's ledgers an' all fliat,
I don't bleeve you've made much at it.
I'm agin purtection."
Well, when Sid set down he was oF
a swet. We didn't know he could talk
that way, and fer a minute nobody sed
a word. Then they just hollered and
cheered, and Philo Patterson, fur once
in Iiis4ife, set still. When things got
quieter like they called on the next man
and on Mike, but they sed they'd talk
next nieetin', and soothe president post
poned the balance of the debate. But
one thing Sid Moon said stuck into my
craw, an' I can't get it out. "What
they don't want, we kin hev." An' it
looks about that way.
A Source of Pocket Money.
Farmers in many parts of the West
are devoting more attention to poultry,
and the profits from this source in many
cases keep their homes 'supplied with
numerous useful articles. The poul
try yard is certainly worthy of atten
tion from all farmers. Poultry raising
is certainly worthy of attention from
all farmers. Poultry ;aing is ;rfi, .
able, if it is serfeibly and methodically
pursued. It is a branch of 4'aruiiug
which requires but little hard workund
space, while it carries with it much en
joyment. I know of nothing eqmilly
profitable which can take its place. In
running a farm, eitherdarge or small,
to leave out poultry would seem to me
to omit one-of the best features and
also cut off a steady supply of ready .
money for household purposes which
would soon be missed. if. L. Urown
