THE EDITORS CHAIR.
HOW THINGS LOOK FROM
OUR STAND POINT.
The Opinion of The Editor and the
Opinion of Others which we
Can Endorse on the Various
Topics of the Day.
Mr. Swinson, editor of the Agri
cultural Bee, of (ioldsboro, says
through his paper that he shipped
last week 10 barrels of turnips on
the same day. Eight barrels were
shipped t Philadelphia and eight to
New York fou barrels to one and
four to another in each place. The
following are the results: One of
the Philadelphia linns reported that
they sold the four barrels for $2.00 at
50 cents a barrel. The other report
ed that the lour barrels were sold for
!?G.O0. These two Arms are on the
wine block and within a few doors
of each other. One of the New
York linns lepoit that they sold the
four barrels for $5.00 at $1.25 per
barrel. The other reported that they
sold the four barrels for ?D.00.
Mr. Swinson states that he packed
the turnips himself and that there
was no difference in the barrels and
that the reports show that all the
sales were nude on the same day.
These facts contain food for reflec
tion. For some of his turnips (all
just alike) he got ?2,25 a barrel and
for some as low as 50 cents a barrel,
while in the same market on the
same day day there was ?1.0G differ
ence in ti e sab s as reported. What
(Iocs this mean? While there is no
doubt that some commission houses,
by greater care, diligence and atten
tion to business, are able to and to sell
truck for more than others, yet this
great difference cannot be explain
ed on any such grounds. Did one
firm send Mr. Swinson $4.00 more
than they got for his turnips, or aid
the other linn pocket $4.00 of his
money, or did bom firms poCKei
someot his money, one being a little I
greedier than the other? There is
something crooked, evidently one of
these things happened.
Is there no way for the trucker to
protect himself against such whole-
sale robbery? We have reflected,
now let us act. It will do no good
to cuss the commission merchant,
in fact it is all our fault. By our
credulity and professed helplessness
we put the temptatious betore these
men, and like the majority (?) (we
fear it is too true) of men they sim
ply give w-iy to the temptations. A
northern man would not suffer such
impositions at all. He would not
cuss about it probably as much as we
do, he would take some intelligent
and busir.es-like action to protect
himself. What can we do ? Let us
see. The truckers of Eastern Caro
nna and in fact all alons the At Ian
tic Coast, are along the various lines

This would cost something it is true,
but would it not be a good invest
ment. Instead of costing ?1.00 on
I each barrel of turnips, it would not
cost as much as five cents on each
nackaire shipped. If this Dlan should
not prove satisfactory, then let the
Association employ a man and send
to each market to handle the entire
shipments of the Association. This
done, and if the great majority of
the truckers belonged to the Associa
tion, then the price of the truck
would not be fixed in New York, hut
by the central bureau ia each State.
To make this last plan a complete
success it would be necessary for each
trucking section along the Atlantic
Coa it to have its own central bureaus
which should act in unison. This or
some similar plan of organization the
truckers must sooner or later adopt
if we exiKJCttoreap the full rewards
ot our labors. It will not do to wait
till next spring to mature some plan
of organization, it must be done, if
done at all, this summer or next fall.
Strange indeed is it how quickly
the partizan press of the country
jump at the opinirtunity to assail the
Alliance and the measures of re form
for which it is contending. Let r.n
interview of some prominent man in
public or private life, who opposes
the Alliance, appear in print, and it
is heralded far and wide, but should
any man. not a member of the or
ganization, stand up and boldly
champion its cause then the parti
zan press is as silent as a clam, and
only one side of the question appears.
The members of the Alliance should
not be misled when they read such
papers. Farmers' Advocate.
Blaine continues to ride his hobby
but there is nothing new in it it is a
stolen or at least a borrowed "hos.s."
The Chicago platform of 18S4 con
tained the following language :
"We favor an American continen
tal policy, based on more intimate
commercial and political relations
with lifteen .sister republics of North,
Central and South America, but en
tangling alliances with none."
So Mr. Blaine has simply stole
Democratic thunder and given the
taking name, Reciprocity.

HE BELIEVES IN THE MOSAIC AC
COUNT OF THE EARTH'S BEGIN
NING. Brooklyn, May 24. The striking
sennon Dr. Talmage delivered this
morning to an audience which filled
the new Tabernacle in every part, dealt
with a topic of interest to all who have
watched the discussions now agitating
the churches. Wherever the question
of the inspiration of the Bible is raised
the trustworthiness of the Mosaic nar
rative of the creation is always the
point chiefly assailed. The fact that
so prominent and eloquent a preacher
as Dr. Talmage places himself clearly
on record on the side of orthodoxy will
doubtless have a marked Influence on
public opinion. Bis. text was Genesis i,
31, "And the evening and the morning
were the sixth day."
From Monday morning to Saturday
night gives us a week's work. If we
have filled that week with successes
we are happy. But I am going to tell
you what God did in one week. Cos
mogony, geology, astronomy, ornith
ology, ichthyology, botany, anatomy
are such vast subjects that no human
life Is long enough to explore or com
prehend any one of them. But I have
thought I might in an unusual way tell
you a little of what God did in one
week, and that the first week. And
whether you make it a week of days or
a week of ages I care not, for I shall
reach the same practical result of rev
erence and worship.
THE FIRST DAY'S WORK.
The first Monday morning found
swinging in space the piled up lumber
of rocks and metal and soil and water
from which the earth was to be builded.
God made up his mind to create a hu
man family, and they must have a house
to live in. But where? Not a roof, not
a wall, not a door, not a room was fit
for human occupancy. There is not a
Sran' ?utclSaRoVn,0Mr?oYuiu sS
inappropriate for human residence as
was this globe at that early period.
Moreover, there was no human archi
tect to draw a plan, no quarry man to
blast the foundation stones, no carpen
ter to hew out a beam, and no mason

the time was coming when a being
called man was to be constructed, and
he could find a homestead to which he
could take her must have been a won-
derment to angelic inteUigences. There
had been earthquakes enough, and vol
canoes enough, and glaciers enough,
but earthquakes and volcanoes and
glaciers destroy instead of build. A
worse looking world than this never
swung, it was neapea up aeiormiues,
-.. . ,
scarifications and monstrosities.
Bible says it was without form. That
is, it was not round, it wa3 not square,
it was not octagonal, it was not a
God never did take any one in Ids
counsels, but if lie had asked some
angel about the attempt to turn this
planet into a place for human resi
dence the angel would have said, "No,
no; try some other world; the crevices
of this earth are too deep ; its crags are
too appalling; its darkness is too
thick." But Monday morning came.
I think it was a spring morning, and
about half past four o'clock. The
first thing needed was light It was
not needed for God to work by. for he
can work as well in the darkness. But
lihtniAV be neeessarv. for antreUc in-
i.; tr, in it, nii
the process of world building. But
where are the candles, where are the
candelabra, where is the chandelier!
No rising sun will roll in the morning,
for if the sun is already created its
light will not yet reach the earth in
three days. No moon nor stars can
brighten this darkness. The moon
and stars are not born yet, or, if
created, their light will not reach the
earth for some time yet. But there
is need of immediate light. Where
shall it come from? Desiring to ac
count for things in a natural way, you
say, and reasonably say, that heat and
, vTa rZ
electricity throw out hght mdependent
Oi uie sun, auu uiai. lue uieuuiiu utmea
tlirow out light independent of the sun,
and that alkalies throw out light inde
pendent of the sun. Oh, yes ; all that
is true, but I do not think that is the
way light was created.
The record makes me think that,
standing over this earth that spring
morning, God looked upon the dark
ness that palled the heights of this
world, and the chasms of it, and the
awful reaches of it, and uttered, whether
in the Hebrew of earth or some language
celestial I know not, that word wh'-Ii
stands for the subtle, bright, glowing
and all pervading fluid; that word
which thrills and garlands and lifts
everything it touches; that word the
fall meaning of which all the chemists
of the ages have busied themselves in
exploring ; that word which suggests a
force that flies one hundred and ninety
thousand miles in a second, and by un
dulations seven hundred and twenty
seven trillions in & second, that one
word God utters Light 1
And instantly the darkness began to
shimmer, and the thick folds of black
ness to lift, and there were scintillations
and coruscations and flashes and a bil
lowing up of resplendence, and in great
sheets it spread out northward, south
ward, eastward, westward, and a radi
ance filled the atmosphere untik it could
hold no more of the brilliance. Light

The great German philosopher in his

the light of the first Monday is reced

darkness. It is Monday night "And
the evening and the morning were the
TUB PARTING OF TFIK WATERS.
Now it is Tuesday morning. A del
icate and tremendous undertaking is
set apart for this day. There was a
great superabundance of water. God
by the wave of his hand this morning
gathers part of it in suspended reser
voirs, and part of it he orders down into
the rivers and lakes and seas. How to
hang whole Atlantic oceans in the clouds
without their spilling over, except In
right quantities and at right times, was
an undertaking that no one but Omnip
otence would have dared. But God
does it as easily as you would lift a
glass of water. There he hoists two
clouds each thirty miles wide and five
miles high and balances them. Here
he lifts the cirrous clouds and spreads
them out in great white banks as
though it had been snowing in heaven.
And the cirrous stratus clouds in long
parallel lines so straight you know an
infinite geometer has drawn them.
Clouds which are the armory from
which thunder storms get their bayo
nets of fire. Clouds which are oceans
on the wing. No wonder, long after
this llrst TuedAyjjf creation week, Eli-
