applies not only to the abupe of your

MASS MEETING ETC Hi THE WEST.
f aHabury, N. C , Oct. 3, '61.
We spoke with Gen. Weaver of Iowa
t eevcral cf his appoiomeuts in the
we.it las' week. He is a fluent, able and
convincing speaker. His power over an
audience is wonderful and bis defence
of the position of the Alliance was un
answerable. His speeches have been
mnch misrepresented by some newspa
pers. We take piesanre in saying that
we endorse every sentiment to which he
gave utterance. On Wednesday night
ho left for his home in Des Moines. On
Thursday we went to Lenoir in Caldwell
county, not to speak, but - to organize
the District Lecturer Bureau for the 8th
District. However a crowd had gathered
and called for a speech and we could not
refuse. It was the same case at Ashe-
ville the next day whore we went to or
ganize the 9th District with State Lec
turer Bell, Bureau. We organize the 7th
District hero to-day. The next Districts
will be the 5th and 4th which will be
organized at Greensboro and Raleigh.
We had intended to give our readers
a fuller account and especially of Gen,
Woaver 8 speeches, but for went of time
must stop with these brief notes.
We have ia the South a certain class
of editors who are continally crying oat
against the Farmers' Alliance and aver
ring that it is splitting the Democratic
Party. Do not thoee editors know that
their contintiHl snarling will do more in
one year towards splitting the Democrat c
party than tkc Alliance will do in ten
years. About a half dozen such fellows
as 0te3 of Alabama, would be 6non?b
to kill and bury tho Democratic party ic

hanoemen out of tho party. Under his
plan the Third Party at the South would
be a certainty. Charleston world.

NORTH CAROLINA AHEAD.
I North Carolina is the State of all others
I tor rare minerals.
The preface of Bulle
tins 7-4 of the United States Geological
Survey says that since 1881 a "goodly
number or species have been added to
the list," and that minerals formerly sup
posed to be rare now found abundantly
and have acquired commercial impor
tance. "For example, in response to
and industrial demand, North Carolina
has supplied zircon and .menagite by the
ton, and samaiskito by the hundred
weight, and the out put can be increased
almost indefinitely. The Stats has also
contributed to science several new speci
mens as yet not found elsewhere, and
some of these, notably among the vcr-
miculites, are significant for the light
they shed upon other associated mine
rals." Manufacturer's Record.
A SUNDAY REFLECTION.
The more we read of the under lying
principles of the Alliance the more we
see in t he spirit of .the order something
to admire, It is declared "we aim to
elevate , men by -blending together more
intimately the. ties of brotherhood and
humanity in social life, thns dissolving
prejudice and selfishness in tho sunlight
of human love." . - ..-
This is a sermon in a nutshell and no
sentiments are more noble or commend
able. ' Whenever any member of tha Al
liance seeks to breed prejudice and to im
plant bate and distrust he is not a good
Aliianoo ma. - He is untrue to the un
derlying teachings of his Ordor. State

Anne went off in a hurry by rail next
morning, about an hour before Dr. Tib-
bets came home from the city to find
her gone. The house seemed strangely
cold and empty and ungenial, and he

lever case at Deadman's Hollow. At
tea Mrs. Bissell seemed to have changed
into a petrifaction of her former self.
the Holmes family had crept back into
their inexpressive, flaj; featured shells,
and Miss Carver was furtively watch
ing the scene and drawing her own cou
clusionsabout Anne's suddeu flight.
Evidently the Bissella had discovered
something unfavorable to their paragon.
She communicated her suspicious to the
Widow Harkaway, and they waited im
patiently for an explosion that did not
come.' There were no more jokes at
table about the doctor's growing prac
tice, no more fun or life or active sym
pathy. Without Anne's girlish laughter
and bright presence the house had sud
denly turned into a vault.
The change in Mrs. Bissell struck cold
-on the doctor's heart. lie suspected that
she' blamed him for not having traced
the stolen money or captured the thief,
and speculated as to wnat further, .steps
he could take to show his zeal. He was
under a cloud, and he fell into the way
of entering and leaving the house stealth

smoking more cigars than were good for
him. Ho watched the smoke wreathe
up about his head by the hour and Anne's
face appear and vanish away, and his
blues grew daily of a deeper indigo hue.
He noticed as a significant sign that the
floral offerings that once adorned his.
office table had ceased to appear. One"
he thought seriously of asking Mrs. Bis
sell what he had done to forfeit her es
teem, and then his pride rebelled, and
he concluded to fall into the business at
titude of boarder and landlady. He did
not even dare to inquire after Anne or
when she was coming 'home, for all his
questions were met with polite but frigid
He could see that Mrs. Bissell suffered
silently, but the loss of her interest
money, the shiftlessness of Bissell and
the worries of poor help were sufficient
to account for her low spirits. Only
Miss Carver throve in the changed atti
tude of affairs. She now firmly believed
the doctor was a thief, and that tho Bis
sella had found him out, and for some
reason were hushing matters up; but
she was willing to indulge in scientific
conversation even with a man of his
suspicious character, now that she had
the field all to herself, and Anne s irri
tating beauty was no longer beaming on
the opposite ride of the table. In spite
of her belief in his turpitude she was
half disposed to go over to the little pill
theory, for tho doctor was very generous
in his medical opinions ho gave gratis on
her pet diseases. Miss Carver had tried
her best to fathom tho mystery of Anne s
absence and Mrs. Bissell's freezing up
toward the doctor, but without very
"They've found out something pretty
black about him, you may be sure," she
said to the widow, "for I never saw a
girl make a bolder push than she did
after that man, and they were all just
ready to eat him up."
A month had gone by and Mrs. Bis
sell showed no sign of relenting toward
the young doctor. She was more and
more polite ana formal ana ceremo
nious, and it occurred to her that he
would soon be looking out for a fashion
able boarding place, where the climate
was more salubrious, for the spread of
scarlet fever in Deadman's Hollow had
given him plenty of hard work, and it
was no uncommon tning to. nave tne
door bell broken twice a week by the in
sistency of night messengers. One au
tumn evening she was sitting in her own
room with a great pile of stockings be
fore her, fresh from the wash and await
ing the darning needle, when the doctor
burst in without stopping to knock. He J
held a long official looking document in
his hand, and his face was flushed with
eager, happy excitement.
"Excuse me, Mrs. Bissell, for forget
ting my manners. I hurried in to tell
you tnat i nave just naa great; news
from the Boston chief of police. They've
caught the thief that stole your money,
and got back all those marked bills but
one that has mysteriously disappeared.
Eut it is sure to come to light m time."
"What do you say?' Mrs. Bissell asked
sharply, clutching the arm of her chair "
and looking up bewildered through her
"They've caught the thief," said.he,
raising his -voice with the impression
that she had suddenly gone deaf. "He
was an old -state prison bird, who had
just been discharged from the peniten
tiary. He - pretended to be a plumber,
and roofer by trade, and was engaged
herewith Fraser early in the summer.
He intended, it seems, to clean out LUV

robbed you and left town suddenly."

BisselL. .. -'' ' ' " i'.V'" ' : ""
;' "Yes," said the doctor, smiling, 'and
it seexne the fellow took the oppOitnnity
to go through your bureau, drawers."
A hot flush burned on Mrs. Bissell's
thin cheek, and she put her hand before
her eyes for very shame. - "Oh, doctor, "4
she cried in a stilled, choked voice
broken with sobs, "I ought to go down
on my knees and humbly beg your par

brown face away up to the roots of her
gtAy hair, and tinged even the tips of
ikr ears. "Don't you know, Dr. Tibbete,
ytn gave it to me for beard," she said
sit -wly. I gave it to you?" He ran his
hJSda through his light locks and nat
dumb for a moment, stricken with sur
prise. Then a light broke in on him. "I
sec now," he exclaimed. "It wa3 that
scoundrel Doyle, whose thief a name is
Shifty Mike. He called ice in that night
for tha baby, the first night call I had in
Littlefield. I pee now it was all a trick
to paf3 this bill off oa me and save him
self from suspicion, for thero really
wasn't anything serioua tho matter with

remember at first I thought I could not
make change for so large a bill, but
finally I did manage, and then I

aoout it never icoKod at lt, in tact, un
til that day I gave it to you."
Mrs. Bissell did not look tip. Her face
w&3 still pcarlct, and fcho was trembling
like a l.af . The doctor rubbed his fore
head, erill perplexed. "It had just oc
curred to lue," ho said, Emiling a little
wistfully, "that yon might have thought
but no, you cm not tniiik 1 was a
thief;" his frank, sunny smile broke on
all over his face: "the thing is too ab
surd. Ycu couldn't suppose that I had
sneaked up thereinto the attic and taken

The . pr woman looked so distressed
he wanted -to Bparo her. "And Miss

"No, no," protested Mrs. Bissell,
stretching out her hands. "She could

She believed you were a perfect gentle
man, and as m.r.e3t and true as tijo sun.
She said she would etats her Lie on it,
and she grt down on her knees and made
me promise I would never lot you know,
would never breaths a word to harm
you in this town. She knew if it once
"got wind c-uch as she," motioning toward
Miss Carver's room, "would soon tear
your reputation piecemeal. She said
ahe'd'go away and not come back until
you were cleared, as sue knew you
would be in soma way, and the poor girl
has been sick waiting, but she never lost
faith:" Mrs. Bissell paused, and then
w;ent on in a Ipw, broken voice, "I waa
to blame, doctor, and I ask you to for
give me,, though I don t know as you
ever can, and now I guess I must go and
telegraph to Anne to como right home,
and she rose from her chair.
"No" said the doctor, quite pale, and
putting nis nana on ner arm. "Let me
go to Bell's Cove. I have something to
say to Anno. If we come back together
to-morrow afternoon wo ehall come back

"Oh, doctor:" and Mrs, Bissell began
to cry. "I always did say you wpve the
only j-oung man I ever bliould care to

The doctor and Anne came home to

Cookery at Saa.
The English Shipmasters' association
has proposed that a cooking" school for
ships' cooks should be established. Hith
erto the one qualification for the post of
cook in the merchant service has " been
to be a negro. It is true that occasion
ally a Spaniard or other nationality of
exceptionally dark complexion has been
shipped as cook, but . such exceptiocs
have rarely had the approbation of in
telligent seaman. So, toorif the cook
has accidentally gone overboard the cap;
tain has been compelled - to detail the
most worthless of the sailors to act as
cook; but this has been-dona of necessity
and not of choice. The proposal to. es;
tablish cooking schools shows that tho
old fashioned cook, whese. only concep
tion of cooking was limited to boiling-
or in the case of exceptionally dark
cooks, to boiling and frying is doomed
The modern sea captain desires the re
finements of shore cookery, and hankers
for "manevilins." Possibly he dreams
of game suppers prepared from cooped
partridges, and perhaps pudding more
recondite than the siiaplo duff of the sea
would meet his. views. The old fash
ioned captain is being driven from tho
ocean by steam, and it is perhaps fitting j
that the old fashioned cook should fol
low him. : It is even possible that the
Vtramp" of the ' future will carry as a
cook - a young woman . who ; ha3 just
graduated "from a cookery, school and
who vwill ornament the.- galley ' with

"TO THIS LSI) WAS 1 HORN." !
JOHN XVIII, 37, THE ,
Bhooklts. Oct. 4. A most lmprea-
dve scene is that witnessed in the
l?rooklyn Tabernaele, when at the open
ing of the morning service seven thou
sand persons on the main floor, In the
two galleries and the adjoining rooms rise
and sing the Doxology. This morning,
In addition to the congregational sing
ing, Professor Henry Eyre Browne ren
dered from the orjran, "Theme and Va
riations, in A, by Kramer. Dr. Tal
inage's text was taken from John xviii,
37, "To this end wan I born."
After Pilate had suicided, tradition
snys that his body was thrown into the
Tiber, and such storms ensued on and
aliout that liver that hU body was
tiken out and thrown into the Rhone,
aid - similar disturbances swept tliat
ri ver and ! Its banks. Then the body
was taken out and removed to Lau
6anne, and put In a deeper pool, whioh
immediately became the center of sim
ilar atmospheric and aqueous disturb-
Huccs. Though these are fanciful' and
falae traditions, they show the execra
tion with which the world looked upon
Pilate. It was before this man, when
he was ia full life and power, that
Christ was . arraigned its in a court of
oyer and terminer. Pilate said to his
prisoner, "Art thou a king, then?" end
Jeeii3 answered, "To this end was I
Lorn." flare enough, -although all
earth and hell arose to keep him down.
He is today empalaced, enthroned and
coronated king of earth and king-qf
heaven. "To this end was Ibbrh."
That is what he came for, and that waa
what he accomplished.
By the time a child reaches ten years
of age the parents begin to discover
that child's destiny; but by the time he
or she reaches fifteen years of age the
question, is oh the child's lips: ."What
am I to be? What am I going to be?
What was I made fori" . It is a sensible
and righteous question, and tho youth
ought to keep on atking it until it is so
fully answered that the young man or
the 5'oung woman can say with as
much truth as its author, though on a
less expansive scale, "To this end was I
There is too much divine skDl shown
hi tho physical, mental and moral con
stitution of the ordinary human being
to suppose that ha was constructed
without any divine purpose. If yon
take me out on some vast plain and
show me a pillared temple surmounted
by a dome like St. Peter's, and having
a floor of precious stones, and arches

And it is impossible for me to believe
that any ordinary human being, who

bral organization- more wonders than
Christopher r Wren lifted in St Paul's
or Phidiase ver chiseled on the Acropolis,
and built in such a way that It shall
last long after St Paul's cathedral Is
as much a ruin as the Parthenon that
such ' a being was constructed for no
pin-pose and to execute no mission and
without any divine intention teward
some end. The object of this sermon
is to help you to find out what you Hire
made for, and help you find, your
sphere, and assist you into that condi
tion where you can say with certainty
und , emphasis and enthusiasm and
triumph, "To. this end was I bom."
WHAT TOX7 WTLIj 3T0T UAVU TO AN-
l- ' VSWKR FOR.
, Tirst, I discharge you from all re
tspoxLt5hty ui .most of your environ
menla. You are not responsible for
your parentage or grand parentage.
You are not responsible for any of
the - cranks that may have ' lived In
your ancestral line, and who a hun
dred . years- before you were born
may have lived a sty 13 of life that
more or less affects you,today. . You
are not responsible for the fact that;
your temperament is sanguine, or mel
ancholic or bilious or .lymphatic- or
xiervou3. Neither are you - -responsible
ior the place of your nativity, whether
among the 'granite hills of New Eng
land, or the cotton plantations of 'Lou-
jsiana, or on the banks of "the Clyde;
or the Dnieper, or the Shannon, or the
iSeine.. Neither are you responsible for
. th0 irelig&n taught In your"" father's
jhouse'.or the irreligion. .Do not bother
tyourself about what you cannot help,
or about circumstances that yoa did
not decree. V ,
; Take things as they are and decide
the question so that you shall be able
safely to?say, --To this end. was! born. t
How will youdecide It? ; By direct ap
plication to onljBeing mthe um
verao who "is5 competent , to tell yoo-
the Lord Almighty. - Do you know the
treason' why he is the' only ono who can
tell? Because ihe can see everything
!who can see what has been happening
'for the last Eve hundred years in your
ancestral- line, and for .thousands .of
7ears clear back to Adamv-and there
is not one person in all ; that ancestral
ina of six thousand years-bat has some
bow affected your character, and even
old Adam himself will sometimes turn

wo hare no time to experimotit w'.th
oceuptk and profeaiona.
Tha reason we hare so many dea4
failnree is that parents decide lor
children what they ijall do, or chil
dren themselves, wrought on by scan
whim or faney, decide for tb&isolre
without any imptoration of ditlna
guidance. 80 we hare now In pul
pits men making sermons who ought
to be in Uaeksmith shops making plow
shares, and we have In the law those
who instead of raining the eases of
their clients ought to be pounding shoe
lasts, and doctors who are the worst
hindrances to their patients Mvalee
and artists trying to paint land
scapes who ought to be whitewashing
board fences, while there are otltere
making bricks who ought to be remod
eling constitutions, or shoving planes
who ought to be transforming litera
ture. ASK OOD ABOUT IT.
Ask God about what worldly busi
ness yoa shall undertake until you are
so positive yoa can In earnestness smite
your hand on your plow handle, or
your carpenter's bench, or your Black
stone's "Commentaries," or your medi
cal dictionary, or your Ir. Dick'e
"Didatio Theology," saying," "For this
end I waa bom." There are chil
dren who early develop natural affini
ties for certain styles of work. When
the father of the astronomer Forbes
was going to London he asked hie chil
dren what present he should bring
each one of them. The boy who was
to be an astronomer cried out, "Bring
me a telescope I"
And there are children whom you
find all by themselves drawing on their
slates or oa paper, ship and liouses or
birds, and you know they are to be
draftsmen or artists of some kind.
And you .find others ciphering out diffi
cult problems with rarenterest and
success, and you know tliey are to be
mathematicians. And others making
wheels and strange contrivances, and
you know they are going to be machin
ists.- And others are found experiment
ing with hoe and plow and sickle, and
you. know they will be farmers. And
others are always swapping jackknlvcs
or balls or bats .and making something
by the bargain, and they are going to
be merchants. When Abbe de Ranee
lyvd so advanced in studying Greek that
he could translate Anacreon at twelve
years of age, there 'was no doubt left
that he was Intended for a scholar.

WHAT TOU WERE MADK FOR.
But my .subject now mounts into the
momentous. Let me say that you are
made for usefulness and heaven. I
judge this from the way you are built.
You go into a shop where there is only
one wheel turning, and that by a work
man's foot on a treadle, and you say to
yourself, "Here is something good being
done, yet on a small scale;" but if you
go into a factory covering many acres,
and you find thousands of bands pull
ing on thousands of wheels, , and shut
tles flying, and the "whole scene be
wildering , with activities, driven by
watefor steam or electric power, you
conclude that the factory was put up
to do great work and on a vast scale,
Now, I look at you, and If I sbould
find .that you bad only one faculty of
body, only one muscle, only one nerve,
If you could sea but could not hear, or
could hear and not see, if you had the
use of only one foot or one hand, and,
as to your higher nature, if you had
only one mental faculty, and yoa had
u.,f nn r.rrTTlttr.f r ioAamnt

only one eapacitv. I , would say not

with ' more. ;wheels than any factory
