For until it ia borne in mind that peers and peeresses of Great Lritain are lante landed proprietors in our country Viscount Scully alone owns three million acres in Illinois, Iowa and Nebraska does tbe signficance of absenteeism in landlords become apparent." From the figures given the holdings of alien land-owners in this country aggregate twenty-five million acres, and that is constantly being increased by real estate foreclosures. It is a well known fact that most of the money loaned on real estate is foreign capital, and mortgages are now being ioreclosea at a lively rate. Millions are now so frequently poken of that we never stop to con sider how much it actually is; there fore 1 am inclined to believe that many do not realise the extent of he possessions of tboe alien landlords or they would make a more vigorous protest than they are doing. After reading the list referred to, I took my pencil to figure out the exact size of a million-acre tract of land, and was astonished at its magnitud 1,562 square miles almost forty miles square.

P. - ARTESIAN WELLS Possibility of KeTolatlonlzlBg Kaater North Carolina by Calag; Thoaa What artesian wells have done in rendering healthy the river districts in the great Northwest as well as sec tions in tbe Gulf and other Southern States wherever tried has long been known. That Eastern North Carolina can be revolutionized by them can now be shown by examples nearer home. U. Nachman, Inteudant (Mayor) of Lake City, S.C., juft over our southern border, writes: "Our city has five ar tesian wells, ranging from 1U5 to 200 lectin aepm. xuey cost on an aver 10, 1895.

These sition grounds, with a military escort, i are all overflow wens spouting up 461,000 acres. Thus you see the entire county does aot contain g million acres, being only equal to about two- thirteenths of Scully's land. Then it wou'd require about six and one-ball counties tbe size of Rice tc be as large as the Scully estate, which contains 4.0S7 square miles, and is equal to a square whose sides tre sixty-eight miles long, or 272 miles around it. We will now consider the entire amount of land that has been monop olized by those foreign aristocrats, which aggregates 25 million acres, or .39,062 square miles. If it was all in one body it would be about four-fifths as large as England about ore, and one-third times as large as Scotland and a bout five times as large as Wales. Thus you see they own an empire within the bound aries of the United States al most half as large as their own own country, the island of Great Britain. It would be equal to a square whose sides are 197 miles long. It would make 156,250 homesteads of 160 acres each. Counting five to a family there are 781,250 persons crowded out of homes, because those aristocrats are allowed to monopolize, and then refuse to sell our birth right. I will again quote the Ottawa Jour nal : "Thus Scully practically owns in Illi inois tbe best part of Livingstone, Logan and Farwell counties. The State in 1877 passed an alien land law directed solely against Scully. To evade it he insisted be forehand upon a clause in ail nis leases The military parade was organ ized with divisions of United States Infantry and the militia of Georgia and other States.

He Walks One Hundred Miles to Restore Money to Its Owner. Toledo Blade. About two weeks ago Mrs. Jacob Weyning, a farmer's wife at Akron, Ohio, gave a tramp a pair of her hus band's old trousers. It was afterwards discovered that ber husband bad hid den $200 in the lining of tbe cast off clothing. A vigorous search failed to discover the tramp, and the money was considered forever lost. Yesterday, however, Jthe tramp re- four feet above the surface the size of pipe two inches. Tbe water is light and can be drank in large quantities without any unpleasant results. The average cost per well was $60. Tbe Patapsco Guano Company have put in these wells to the decided improvement of health, so they write, at Augusta, Ga., and in Colleton county, South Carolina. They have a 4 inch artesian well, 400 feet deep, at their works near Baltimore which they say flows enough water to furnish a village. The Pres ident, Mr. Grafflin, is now engaged in boring an artesian well on bis splendid farm at Neal, Halifax county, .N.C. Water has also been reached at Tar- boro at 200 feet and in Hyde county at less ueptn. WhPsat some points artesian water may not rise to the surface and will re quire wind-mills to pump it up, there can be no doubt that the renovation of Eastern North Carolina will be brought about by rendering it en tirely free from malaria in this method Walter Clark. is tre cwRtti tnrtss t it was n STASOARS-7 AND TRBACHBRYr- Oore Of the Democratic Party in Try ing to Fatten Condemnation On Republican.

First: Let it be stated that the term "free silver" is a misnomer and misleading. A great many FEATHER-BRAIN STATESMEN object to free coinage of silver be cause it would convert the property of the silver mine owner into money at tbe people's expense, and without cost to himself. Free coinage of this character has never been con templated, and has never existed. It is true that under what is known as free coinage, the owner of silver bullion of required fineness would midst. Now when members of the Church do things that are wrong. Immoral or dishonest and the Cburch either silent ly endorses it, or at least winks at such wrongs, is the Cburch living up to the teachings of Christ When prom inent members of tbe Cburch steal votes or steal from widows and orphans or from anybody else through dishon est bank management or in any other way, aud the Church does not severely condemn tbe crime, is the Church on Christ's side or against Cbristr Christ drove,t be money changers and usurers from the Temple, but does not tbe Church to-day cloak and magnify some, if not many, of tbe same kind of men How often do nreacbera receive as many ounces of money as I avoid discussing and condeming tbe he deposited ounces of silver, but the government would not be the loser, beeause it would tke one ounce of pure silver out of every ten for its own use, and put instead one ounce of copper.

Again. A wide ignorance prevails respecting the legal tender charac ter of silver. Quite recently the Wilmington Messenger stated that silver was a legal tender in sums of $0 00.
