JAMES P. COOK, Editor.
BREVARD E. HARRIS, CORRESPOND
VIEWS ARE BROADEMM!.
To believe, advocate and dili
gently support views, such as we
tind now existing, would have been
equivalent to exile in two decades
back. Every one is becoming more
liberal and patient with what seems
new ideas. There are some hunch
back, narrow-minded, little-souled
lories that are against the progress
to be seen in every spher of life.
This is all right. They help the
cause by kicking and being fernent.
There are some men who help causes
and make you friends by opposing
you and your cause.
But what we wish to say is ou this
line : " The sphere for woman's use
fulness has been broadened." It is
right ; 6he is capable and able, she
is patient and forbearing. A few
years ago it would have been re
garded out of place to see a woman
"stand in a store." Women clerks
several years ago were unknown.
Women in the medical profession
prior to 18C0 would have been
monstrosities. Women were not
admitted to the Universities, &c;
now they are studying side by side
with their neighbors in pants.
Women, as church workers, are
far superior to the men. They wipe
the tears from the weeping face;
they put clothes on bare backs;
they put food into hungry mouths ;
they administer medicine to the sick.
The best of all charity living, live
religion is to be found in the ef
forts of our women today.
The Standard believes in woman
suffrage, with modifications.

It seems certain that the Alliance
can get two of its measures the
free coinage and silver and the re
form of the tariff through the
next Congress. It seems also cer
tain that the securing of these two
measures would give the order such
prestige with the country by re
lieving the situation that it could
demand any other just measure of
reform with the certainty of success.
The vital question just now is, will
our brethren have enough wise con
servatism to undertake, with might
and main, the things that are possi
ble, or will they take the unwritten
and unspoken risks of attempting
the doubtful? In a few words,
these are the questions that press
for answering now, and they must
be, they will be, answered, one way
or the other, within the next few
Months. Do we need the union of
all our forces? Do the needs of the
country demand the union of all
our forces? Can we win with
disunited and contending factions ?
Shall the conservatism that has
always been the boast of the farm
ing classes make itself dominant in
the present crisis ? We assure our
readers that these are immensely im
portant questions. As these ques
tions shall be answered so shall it
be well or ill with the Alliance
movement. Progressive Farmer.

The Wilmington Star ha3 this to
fiay about the new tariff on tin :
"On the 1st of July the new tin
tariff goes into effect This will
add about $$,000,000 more to the
tax which the peple bad been pay
ing on tin-plate. The excuse for
this increase of tax was that it
would stimulate the establishment
of tin-plate factories in the country
and soon make us independent of
foreigh tin-plate. There has been
a great deal of boasting by lvepub
lican organs about the establisment
of tin-plate factories, as a result of
this increased tariff, and a dozen or
so have been reported a3 having
been established at various points,
but thus far out of the entire batch

are mere burlesques on tin-plate
From a very interesting review of
Ihe cotton crop by the Financial
Chronicle, we learn that the yield last
year was 194 pounds per acre the
ame as in 1882, and about the same
as in 1870; the general average
appears to be about 160 pounds.
The area under cultivation in 1882
was 16,050,000 acres; by 188G it had
risen to 18,994,000, since then the in
crease up to 1890 was 500,000 acres
a year, being last year 20,852,320

WHOSE IM.ACKS HAVE WE TO FILL,?
" The past is all by death possessed,
And frugal fate, that guards the rest,
By giving bids us live to-day."
The sun stood just above the
smoky tops of the Blue Ridge when
a soldier, with garments tattered,
wan face and trembling hand, stand
ing by the roadside, gracefully
tipped his cap as his conquered
leader rode by. When the graceful
and commanding figure of General
Lee had vanished over the distant
hill, turning hia sorrowful face to
ward Appomattox, he looked a long
farewell, then began the weary jour
ney to his desolate Southern home.
This soldier was a color bearer, and
as the shades of night slowly settled
down upon the weary pilgrim, his
thoughts were with the poet:
" Furl that banner, softly, slowly !
Treat it gently it is holy
For it droops above the dead.
Touch it not unfurl it never,
Let it droop there furled forever,
For its people's hopes are dead !"
On the doorstep of her lonely
cabin sat an aged mother straining
her tearbedhnnied eyes to catch a
glimpse of some one coming down
the dusty road. Yes, it is he! Lon
has 6hewaite.l, and weary her nights
of watching, but they are ended!
Now will she clasp him to her bosom
whom she has longed to behold!
Four years ago he went away,
proudly wearing his suit of grev,
and now he's coming back- Bui

turned into the house just below.
It's her neighbors boy returned.
She does not know that a year ago

hands of his comrades, and that

Every Mower, when their task calls
"Away from the home of his love.
Away from his kindred and wife.
Away from his mother, whose prayer
went above ;
lie gave for his country his life."
These are they whose places we
have to fill.
But that colorbearer has raised
twenty-six crops since the hearts
rending day of Appomattox. Above
the ashes of his poor log hut has
arisen his elegant country home.
Where then he wept over his deso
late fields, today he smiles o'er the
waving harvest. Out of the smoul
dering ruins of a civil war our fath
ers have builded a country nowhere
equaled under the sun. Who does
not love this sunny land? Our
hearts oueht to thrill with country
love when we know that we dwell in
a land where, after the bloody fray,
the veteran with but one leg and
using a leather strap fastened about
his shoulder as a right arm to steady
his plough, tilled his little farm and
gained an honest living. You may
call them rebels if you will, but I

rebels? Nay! The bravest men un
der heaven! Not alone in battle, but
in that they have arisen to a mighty
country out of a desolation never to
be seen again under the reign of
Mv countrymen, Gettysburg and
Appomattox ought to bring to us
emotions which Marathon and Leuc
tra failed to give the Greeks. Who
of us does not love the father who

there is a service demanded of us
no less arduous than that of our
fathers. e are the sons of a liberty

E reserve it unsullied. Would you
elieve it if I told you that this oft
boasted liberty is slowly but surely
being stolen from the unguarded
hands of the people. If this nation's
government is tending to anything,
it is tending to centralization! The
seeds were sown years ago, but they
are blooming today, and the odor

and such power belonged to the na
tion as they ceded to it. But now.
whither is the sovereign rule tend
ing? Today, both labor and capital
demand recognition; not from the
States, but from the powers at
Washington. A few days ago the
farmer Governor of South Carolina
rode at the head of a procession of
the best citizens of his State unno

greeted the ears of a defeated U. S.
I'll tell you, the Governor of a
State is a figure head, and State

have arisen in their might to demand
redress of grievances-
Party dues and cherished political
opinions are being cast to the wind
amid the scramble for relief. It is
said that a few years ago "one man
in the city of Chicago tied the wheat
crop in his handkerchief, and held it
until a sewing woman in Atlanta,

But, in addition to this, there is a
problem which is presented pecu
liarly to the youth of the South.
The question of two races, dwelling
in peace and quiet within the same
borders, stands out in all its black
defiance, demanding speedv solution
at our hands- Shall we shrink from
this task? Shall we not settle this
demand by the 1 ght of the liberty
which our fathers purchased for us
and in the sight of a just God?
Hear the words of General Y. 1.
Sherman, whose late death has called
forth words of highest praise from
his Northern worshippers: '
lne negro must be allowed to
vote, and his vote must be counted;
otherwise, so sure as there is a God
in heaven, you will have another war
more cruel than the last, when the
torch and the dagger will take the
place of muskets and well-ordered
battalions. Should the negro strike
this blow, in seeming justice, there
will be millions to assist him."
Thus complicated, this question is
given us lor solution, ana tne tie
inand ia that having first built up
our lives upon the firm foundation
of Gol-dike character, we shall ren
der a just decision.
But far above both these demands
comes the call to the evangelization
of the world. Millions of souls
must be called to Christ and millions
of barbarians brought " to see the
glorious light of civilization and
culture. No government ever pros
pered long without the religion of
Jesus Christ, and this is demanded
before there is a possibility of set
tling questions pertaining to the
welfare of the State. While we art
pressed on every hand for a speedy
redress of human grievances, a voice
from the skies calls us to a work

The EcelettlaNtlcal Center Again.
Editor of The Standard :
This is growing in importance.
When last noticed there were twenty
nine churches within ten miles of
Coddle creek church. Within the
last two years two V. S. Presbyterian
churches have been built one four
mi'es and ahalf south ou the great
road to Charlotte. This takes in
the outskirts of three churches
Bethpage, Poplar Tent, Ramah and
Coddle creek. The first two are the
pastoral charges of Revs. R. S. Ar

former is pastor of the new organiza
tion having a different name from
any other Gilwood. If it had been

would have been represented ! Bro.

preacher and pastor, and has upon
him the dew of his youth. He

They have a good church completed,
except some inside work, which will
be done this fall.
The other is within one mile and
ahalf west; this is called Shearer
chapel, after the president of David
son College. It is a nice showy
building, completed outside, having
large windows, with the pulpit in a
recess bay window style. Rev. Dr.
Shearer and the Y. M. C. A. at Da
vidson serve this place with preach
ing and lectures in connection with
Sabbath school. The progress in
church work now is such that in
this region there will be a church
convenient for all classes.
Just think of it: There are now
thirtyrone churches within teu miles
of Coddle creek of four different
denominations, and no city nearer
than twenty-five miles nor any county
town nearer than fifteen miles. Any
place, so surrounded, ahead of this

From a letter from a friend in
Ray county, Mo., the Standard learns
of a Rev. A.W. Milster, a prominent
Presbyterian divine who held a meet

ster is a son of natives of this county.
Mr. R. W. Allison was approached,
and, in substance, he tells us this:
He is doubtless the son of Daniel
Millster, who married a sister of
Solomon Cline, who died at a ripe
old age in Mt. Pleasant a few years
ago. Mr. Milster lived just above
town in No. 4 township and re
moved to Missouri either in 1832 or
1S33. He had a brother, Mike Mil
ster, who lived at now the McDonald
property, where he died.
They had a sister that married Joe
Misenheimer, the giandfather of
Mrs. Giles T. Crowell, of Argentine
Republic, South America; and an
other sister who married William
Brians, who went to Mississippi. A
sister, too, of this Mr. Daniel Mil

mother of our townsman, Mr. B. F,

The suit of Bonsack machine
company against the Dukes for
$273,000 excited some attention. A
Standard reporter met a gentleman
who is a personal ncqnaiutance of
Bonsack aud in fact was raised in
the same section. He says that
Bonsack, though now only about 28
years of age, was considered when
a boy to be rather beneath the aver
age and by all means very lazy. He
did not work ; this he refused to do.
When sent to school at Roanoke
College, Salem, Va., he neglected
his studies and often times kept
himself iu seclusion. He did no
good at school and was sent home,
lie locked himself up in his room at
home. His father was somewhat
alarmed and endeavored to ascer
tain the cause of his son's seemingly
peculiar action. He demanded of
young Bonsack an explanation. This
he refused to give until the boy
was given to understand that if h
was engaged in a laudable effort
that he should receive help from
his father. The old gentleman was
let into the secret. The cigarette
machine he there invented made him
a fortune, aud over which machine
he is now lawing. It is said that
young Bonsack has made big money
suing for what he claimed infringe
ments upon his patent.
