If the average legal (current) rate
of interest upon secured certificates ol
indebtedness is G jxrcenl; would no;
the immediate elfect of government
loans at 1 per cent, (thus established a
current rate of 1 per cent) be to at
once make all forms of cerliticates o!
funded and secured indebtedness wort h
six times their face value? And would
it" not make stocu snares now paying
only 1 per cent worth par instead ol
1 Gg cents, with aii "-increase of 100 per
cent with each a IditionaMfviJend of 1
pcr cent per an u inn. This being true,
railroad bonds, now amounting to the
S4.S2S,3G,771 would become worth
2(3,070, 104;G2G as an interest paying
investment, (not in face value, because
the amount of money specified in the
bond must always pay it.' Yet the
government bonds are worth 120 and
and many rati road bonds above par).
What about railroad stock share.-', or
capital stock? It amounts to $3,404,-
000,318, and paid in 1830 an average
dividend of 1.7G per cent, and with an
average legal rate of 1 per cent in
terest, w mi Id pay the the legal i ate of 1
pel' cent upon, or rather be worth, in
round numbers 87.590,000,000, where
as it is now probablv worth 33jj cents,
or only 81,308,033,100. If the laud-
loan bill should become a law, with the
railroads1 private property the railroads
stock shares would become valuable
properly and people would have $G,
000,000,000 mor to. reckon with, than
thpy have at present, etc. So tkere is
method in Senator Stanford's mad
ness? Farm lands now paying 1 per cent
would be worth cost.
Farm lands now paying 3 per cent
would be worth three times cost.

Tin Alliance Txcianje.
The Farmers Alliance Exchange of
Georgia, under the superior manage
ment of W;L. Peck, President, and J.
O, Wynu, State Business Agent, is do
ing a grand work for the members of
k)ur order not oulv for the brptlirnii
who trade direct with it. but it !eue
fits those living in tbe most remote
sections of our State, by establishing
prices that merchants are forced to
meet. There is not a month in the
year but that our Exchange saves to
Alliiiijccinen more than its entire cash
capital.. Every day evidences of great
beuefit to our member.' are manifested,
and we could fill our paper with in
stances where merchants in Atlanta or
elsewher.; have to shave their prices,
sometimes fifty per cent., in order to
comete with the Alliance store. The
dealers of Atlanta could and doubtless
would, most willingly," pay the Slale
Alliance one Million dollars if it would
discontinue the Exchange and
never to establish another. It would
be a paying investment even at that
price, for this sum could be made back
the first, season iu their increased prof
its, with such competition out of the
way. As an evidence of the gieat'
good that our Exchange is doing,
city dealer cut the price of one buggy
over 840, when his customer threaten
ed to buy at the Alliance Exchange.
Our State Exchange should be the
pride and pet of every Ailianceman in
(Jeorgia. It is the greatest protection
thrown around our members, and saves
theiu directly and indirectly, incalcu
lable sums of money. Abolish tins in
st it n t ic j s , and our tanners are again at
the meny of the merchants, who Iniye
wrung such extortionate profits from
them. Without this safety valve, the
Alliance, with all its power, could ac
complish but little in securing reliei
for its members in the way or reduced
It is not the design to make a dollar
out of our Exchange, but only to pay
operating expenses, and it is managed
in t he most economical manner. The
gains are ret urn-d to our numbers in
low prices, that merchants arei"- forced j
to meet. Even with its present capital, I
the annual business of the Exchange
amounts to about a half million dollar.-,
and if our Alliaiiccmen will back
it as they should increase its capitd
uid patroaize it more generally there
is'uoreasdn why it should not mour.t
.ip into tlje -millions.; Mr. Winn has
recent ly Opened the wholesale business
to farnifs. Its trade is constantly in
creasing, and the prospects were never
brighter. Contracts for fertilizers are
I ou ing in and ivery brit ch is flour
As an index to the low prices charg
ed, they sell the best high arm sewing
machine for 820, and many other goods
m proportion. The capital is sacred
uid cannot be used in paying officers.
We make the institution pay its' own
expenses and no more. For this j ur
p ise they get from the manufacturers
of fertilizers fifty cents a ton; twenty
iivu cents of this they pay to your lo
cal trade agent. They sell corn at one
cent per .bushel profit, oats one
cent per bushel, sugar twenty-five to
thirty even and a half cents per bar
rel. Ot wagons and buggies they get
from tlie manufacturers at five per
cent, discount. No profit is charged
on meat and many other articles.
They sell to each brother alike. The
oner Allianceman can buy a side of
meat or a sack of corn as cheap as he
who is able to buy a thousand pounds
of meat or a hundred bushels of corn.
The great object is to put all on the
same foot ing.
Every Allianceman should own stock
in our State Exchange even if it be "tut
little. It will return you your money
many fold iu reduced prices on every
thing you buy. And then, you must
not only help the Exchange yourself,
but talk for it and work for it. Our
lecturers must show to their people the
grand work it is doing for our order
.and its members, and educate the far
mers as to the necessity of sustaining it.
E ich week the price list appears in
our columns. Take this to your neigh
bor, and if he refuses lo meet them,
s-Miid vour orders direct to the Ex
ihange. The gentlemen in charge of
the business are clever and honorable
men, and do everything in their power
to scale prices and advance the inter
ests of our members. Let every Alli
anceman put his shoulder to the wheel
and help to bulla up our .-vinance XiX

THE JONES COUNTY CALF CA32.
Four or five das ago the telegraph
brought the intelligence that the fa
mous "Jones county calf ease;1 the
most celebrated proceeding at law
ever before the Iowa courts, had been
finally brought to a close, after over
twenty years of active life, by a ver
dict in the Supreme Court 'for the
piaiutiu. We retrained from com
menting on it at the time, as we could
not believe the report. It did not seem
possible that the able council emp'oved
on both sides would let it die outside
of the United States Supreme Court.
Lattr advices, however, seem to show
that the first report w s only too true
and that the Jones county calf case is
no more. As a thing reared by the
hand of man, it was, we suppose, only
natural that it should have an end.
It was a bright day in early June,
1800, that five young calves might
have been observed wending their way
down a Jones county road, as young
calves will do. They were the' prop
erty of a man named Johnson. Soon
these five thoughtless young calves
came to the garden of a man named
Miller. They broke into this garden
and ate up and trampled down sundry
vegetables. Miller came out and
'sicked1' his dog on the marauding
calves. The dog chased them back up
t'.ie pretty Jones county road on u f ist
run. Indeed, he chased them so fast
that when they arrived at their Jiome
three of them died from exhaustion.
The others were injured, one of them
dying in 1872. The other, it is true,
lingered along as late as 18S3, but it
was never what it should have been
and was always more or le:-s troubled
with palpitation of the heart. The
next day after the calves came home
bringing the dog behind them John
son engaged counsel and sued Miller.
Miller engaged co"unsel and began a
I his was the begin-
ning of the Jones county calf
The amount for which Johnson sued
was $45, the value of the three calves.
Miller, through his counsel, set up the
First, that the calves were never at
his place; second, that he noticed when
they broke in that they were sick and
about ready to die; and third, that
they didn't die at all, but were sold to
a man in a neighboring county.
The case got a good start in 'GO and
ran on Vigorously through the early
and late '70s, took a new lease of life
in December, 1870, and galloped 'along
through the '80s, showed great activity
during 1800, and opened the present,
year in perhaps the' best shape that it
has ever been in; but before scarcely a
month had passed it was cut off in Mts
prime. Miller died in 1878, but his
children kept up the fight; Johns m
held till 1883, dying thr day after his
last calf, but active grandchildren
stood ready and anxious to take up
the struggle. Why the Iowa Supreme
Court, composed of judges w ho were
formerly lawyers, let the case end, we
cannot conceive, for it is on the law
yers that the burden of the ending of
the Jones county calf case falls the
heaviest. The first dispatch sail, sig-.
nificantly: " It has bankrupted every
body connected with it except the
It conies with especially crushing
effect on Colonel Markham and fam
ily, counsel for the plaintiff. Col
Markham beganwith .the case in 18G0.N
He give up his other practice in 1S75
and devoted diirnself solely to it.
Four years ago he associated his son
George Markham, a rising young Law
yer of thirty years, with him iu the
case, and it was the colonel's intention
to retire at the end of this year and
leave it altogether to the younger man.
George Markham has a little six year
old son, and many' times his father has
taken him on his knee and told him
how he expected him to enter the law
and some day succeed to the case on
which his grandfather had lived so
long. Now of course, all of these
bright prospects are shattered. 'ol.
Markham, it is true, can retire with a
comfortable fortune, and George has
his excellent start in life, but the Iowa
Supreme Court has heartlessly left the
boy with no prospects whatever.
Thus the Jone county calf ca-e
passes into history along with the civil
wsir. the surrender of Cornwallis and
th discovery of America. Put as we
write this there comes i gleam of hope
from Iowa after all. It is hinted that
the Miller heirs may sue the Johnson
heirs far malicious prosecution, and
there may yet be a' chance for t-Ye
youngest Markham. New York Tri

Perhaps there would be no harm
done if I should tell you how I would
treat a barrel of potatoes worth 8 i p;r
pound. Firt, I would pack them in
half-bushel flat boxes, and place them
in the coolest part of my cellar, airing
them every three or four weeks and
examining them. About the fir-t of
March, as soon as sprouting begins, I
would spread out in even layers and
ornose them to light. Last of March
or first of April I would divide them
into halves and plant in a cold fr une.
covering about two inche-. Taeu as
they grew and rooted, I would pull th - j
