A Musical Iu:'l I? 'tween Lb::'
One evening in the month of M;y.
Ix'twcei7! I and 12 o'clock, the co:n

tiic large windows were openr the
noon was full the nightingale sang,
he perfumes of roses and mignonettf
peneti'ated the room. Liszt played -si
aocturne of Chopin, and, according to
lis habit, embroidered it a la b'
w'.t'i trills, tnunolos an 1 or;: in-rft ops.
Several times .Clpyii u betnye.i signs o!

wiih his usujd English phlegm: :
l,l p'rav, my dear sir, if you d m
the hondr to' play one of my piece-,
ilav it as it is written,- or play some
thiiig else, j Nobody but Chopin has
ihe right to change Chopin."
"Very well; play yourself," replied
Lisz1. p'iqued. rising from the stool.
"Most willingly " s iid Chopin.;
At this moniei.. the lamp was extin
gn idled by a mith fluttering into the
the llaiue. As some one was about to
relight it, Chopin cried: "No! on the
contrary, put out all the lights the
moon rives me light enough.1"
Then he plaved played for ftiwho'.e
hour. To relate how would be in pos
sible. There are emotions one expe
riences which cannot be described.
The nightingales ceased their singing
to listen; the flowers dr ink as a. divine
lew thosvj ce'esLial sounds from Heaven;
the audience, in muts ectasy, hardly
dard to breathe, and, when the en
chanter finished, all eyes were bathed
in tears, ami, above all; those of Li-.t.
He hugged Chopin in his anus, crying:
"Ah,, my friend you were right!
The works" of a genius dike you are
sicred. It is profanation to touch
them. You are a real poet, and I am
only a mount bank."
"No more of th it!" quickly ')! orh d
Chopin. ; "Wre e tch have oitr kind

very well that n one in the wnr'nl can
play Weber and lleethoven likeyou.
l!y the way, I beg you, plav nie the
adagio in ut di. ." minor of i!e ?llnncn;
but. play serio'isly, as you know how
when you wil ."
Liszt played this adagio, putling
into it all hs soul and will. The
effect produced upon the company was
of- an entire'y different sort. Some

but a drama.
However, Chopin thought himself
victor that evening, that lie li.nl

hearing of thi-, resolved to avengt
himself. The opportunity offered four !

irsembled, and at aUmt the same hour.

to play. After u good deal of uiging.
he cotisenled. Liszt nskeu that all the
lights bf put out and that the cuitains
be drawn, so, that the! obscurity
might be coinph.'te. It was the
caprice of an artist, and readily granted.

place on the wall we found this in

Tlro Poor Poorer the Rich Illchcr.
Let us suppose a colony to be or
ganized, composed of farmers, mechan
ics of all trades, laborers, with suitable
sprinkling of doctors, hiwvers and
ministers. Let us Lsupposa Ithat the
various trades and professions are so
skillfufly proportioned that there shall
be just farmers enough to produce the
food and raw material required by the
entire community; just carpenters,
blacksmiths, etc., enough to perform
the work. needed in thesa trades; just
manufacturers enough to work up the
wool and cotton into clothing, the
wcod and iron of the forests and mines
into t'tny machinery needed, mid just
laborers enough to perform their share
of workS n such a hive of industry as
this would become. Suppose this 'ideal
community to be so fortunately located
on a trojMcal island in mid-Ocean that
its soil should product every variety of
grain, fruit and inediual pbnit known
to the world; that its mines should
yield every mineral, , and its forests
every needed variety cf wood. Such
a community might easily come to the
Indief that its highest interests lav in
the exclusion from its chores of ail
foreign products of industry, in order
that its own varitd n sources might bo
develoj e I to tlvir fullest extent, and
that its own laborers and artisans
might have constant employment.
Under the impulse of ih s belief, let

in the shape of a orotective tariff.
Thus protected from foreign competi
tion we can im-gine that arts and
manufacturers of all kinds will flour
ish, so long as the adjustment of de
mand and supply wit Inn this Wall re
mains perfect; the price of manufac
ture I pro luets will rise to the level at
which those of f reign make can come
in over the tariff wall, and selling
thus high, manufacturers can, and in
ternal competition will compel them to
pay high prices for their raw materials
and labor, and thus it will follow that
the entire level of values, rs measured
in 'money, will rise to a higher point
within this wall than in the world t
large; manufactured products will sell
at higher' prices, agricultural products
will be higher, land will be higher and
wages will he higher; yet, as food and
clothing will also be higher, the earn
ngs of the laborer wilt purchase no
nnre of these necessities than will
. h se of his brother outside the wall.
Let ih imagine that.1 a time finally
conies when the soil ot this fortunate
island, under the stimulus of improved
met lods of culture, supplemented by
l ibo -saving machinery, produces more
of t ie raw material of food ami cloth
ing than the people of the island can
con u me. One of two things must
hap en: the surplus will either be sold
in t ie general in irkets I of th? world; or
per tutted to go to waste at home. Lut
it it not in hunvtnjiature i"av 1,10
proluctsof labor to waste, and this
surplus will be ?o in the gi eral
m iriiet, an I at the; worlds market
prL-e. As the ratio of this surplus to!
the entire crop increases, the condition
of tie f r igu market will have more
and more effect upon that at home,
Hid the time will soon come when the
va'u ! of the entire crop will be meas
und, not by the demand at home, but
by t.ic world at large, and thus it will
hapjen, when the world's general sup
ply is large, that a smaller gross sum
will be received for the increased crop
than a crop just ? u'ricicnt f 'r the n e Is
of home consumption would Lave
brought. L -t this over-pivductio i ex
tend to most of the products of the
soil, and let it amount to a considera
te p r cent, of th whole, an I it will
be see i ;it once that the farmer has
lost the brmefit o? the protective wall.
He is still compelled to buy his labor,
clothing and other necessaries of life
at t he high level pi ices produced , by
that wall, but he sells his products at
the low-level of the world's open mar
ket. The cost of fool will thus be re
duced to the laborer, an 1 for a tim? he
will enioy unwonted prosperity; but
let this prosperity become known to
h. borers in other countries and they
will soon come Hocking over t share
it. There being just snflioient lalxr

(Juiie possible this over-production
ay c me. Tempted by the combina
tion of cheap labor with high prices
for manufactured goods, it is expected
that foreign capitalists will come over
to I., .in those islanders build up their
manur;:ctures:7 In a short time it will
be found that supply has exceeded de
mand, stock wjll ' accumulate, auo
maiiufi ctureiv, compelled to raise
money to p y expenses, will throw
quantities of goods on' the market to be
Mild at any price. Realizing the dan
ger f this method, manufacturers, be
ui4 few in number, will soon combine
into associations binding themselves to
let the r mills stand idle a porti.m of
the year, thus throwing the workmen
out of employment during a part ol
?ach .-eason: As the pi ice of labor u

compelled to accept work on such
terms as the m mufaetun rs may offer.

tion they will probably be strikers, but
thee will only aggregate the difficulty
by lengthening the periods of idleness.
Thus, wagis will b? constantly kept ut

Senator 1 feller in Now York.
The war has been carried into the
enemy's camp at last. Senator Pfeffer,
in a great speech in Cooper Union,
opened the -campaign of the people
aga'.iw the money power in jNew rork
city. If his message is beared and
heeded by the autocrats of Wall street
their interest will suffer far less than
will be the cause it tin y continue to il fy
the demands of the farmers and labor
ers of the country. Here are ihe some
of the things he said. They are worth
I come to you in direct lineage from
that western orator who brought a
warning thirty odd-years ago to give
you the mess ige- that a power threat
ens tlie country, and that you must
destroy-that power or it will destioy
you. It has come to this. Whenever
the man of Wall street dictate-, a policy
is adopted; whenevi r those men oppose
a policy, that po.i y is defeated. More
than twenty years ago a new custom
was adep'ed in this country, namely
whenever the men of Wall .treet need
money they ask their partner at Wash
ington to come over and help them,
and he conies. Last year the Secretary
of the Treasury reports somewhere near
$100,000,000 of the p ople's money
paid over to Wall steet, advanced in
the way of interest. I saw in the na
tional treasury at Washington the
other day great piles of b inds stamped,
"Interest prepaid to duly 1, lS'Jl."
Now, in contrast to that pretense, I
submit to the millions of suffering farm
ers of this country. When the thinners
ask the government for money for
their actual needs tin y cannot get it,
while men who are flourishing in
wealth can get it whenever they want
it. that condition ot things must he
changed. Wre propose to take away
no man's propertv. There is need of
several things. One is more money,
another is cheaper money. 1 don't
mean money that is not good tor any
thing. We want good money. 1 don't
Ciiru what kind, but an abundance of
it. We want it ;it lower rates of in-
tt rest than we are now paying, bond
holders can't get money at 2 per cent.,
out the farmer cannot get it lor I ss
than 10. We are going to equaliz-
that thing if we have to revolutionize
the whole country.
Instead of c il'ing us repndi. tors
and anarchists you ought to thank us
for giving you warning. e mean to
make our own money and plenty of it.
That is just what we did during the
war, sunt we can do it again. We shall
not destroy the money ot the rich. Wre
will not touch adollar of it. We simply
propose to make more-money for our
selves. Are not the farmers' lands as
good as the national banks' bonds?
Why not give the farmer a little 2 per
cent, money from Ihe national treasury
as you do the banks? These are not
threats; they are only warnings.
One-half the homes of this country
are mortgaged for more than they are
worth. If the whole State of Kansas
was put up at auction at tliiity
ndiee it would not
ei.ough to pay lier inueoreunes.s. i
make the same assertion regarding
every agricultural State in the country.
We are not starving in Jvansas. We
prepare to pay our debts, but we can t
pay at 10 p r cent, a debt out of a 2
per cent mi sir, ess. The fanners are
worth a little more than the debts upon
them, but the railroads of the State
owe four or five !a:n?s their value.

put up. This b.'amt t ok the first prem
ium at the North Carolina State. Fair
in 1SSU. This tobacco is shipped all
over the country by the lox to Alli
ancemcn. The prices f r'the diff ret t
brands is as low as the same qralily
can be sold anywhere. We think Ali -ancemen
everywhere will do well to
patronize this factory. Dr. A. J. Dal by,
one of-thc most energetic Alliancemeu
in the South, is Secretary of the Com
pany. He has worked in todjacco all
his life .and knows everything about it
from the tiny seed up to the time it'is
ready for sale. They have old and ex
perienced tobacco manufax turers in the
factory and he puts work through in a
fine shape. Anybody who deals1! with
this concern may depend on an honest
treatment stud may expect the be.-t
goods for tlieir money.
Snakes Arc Not Snakes.
The cause of persons whose nerves
are excited by protracted and excessive
use of stimulants setting the shapes of
animals p issing before them is not due-,
w holly to the imagination, says a writer
in the New York Times. In fact -the
f ancy only operates to induce belief that
what is seen is ulive. and hideous. Tho
eyeball is covered by a network of vein,
ordinarily so small that they do not
intrude themselves visibly in the path
of the light that enters the sight, but '
in the course of some diseases these
veins are frequently congested and
swollen to such ize as to become visi
ble, and when 1 hi happens the effect
generally is to apper as if there were
object of considerubleize a distance
from the pye.
Of course this vein is generally long,
thin and sinuous" like a serpent, ami -,
the figure seen is fn qaenf ly startlingly
liku a snake. That they seem to live
is due to the fact that they are ofUn.
not in perfect line with the; direct
front of sight. THey are either to the.,
si.'e, up or down from thefoeu; there
fore, when discovered, the victim nat
urally turns his eyes toward the. effect,
and the effect, of course, moves away.
The eye follows, and thus a contimu
ous and realistic motion is got. Now,
if the eye be returned to the front
again quickly it will see another,
snake, which if watched will glide
-a Wiily in the same manner. The
writer of this ii afflicted "try
malarial disease, and after his eyes are
thus congested many strange shapes
and clouts pa within his vision,
which, it he were in a state of nervous
collapse, -might easily be all that sire
seen by those suffering from delirium
