Si.b-titutioi;!
In the r"alm of the fine arts there was as
remarkable an instance. A brilliant but
'lyp-reriticlsod painter, Joseph William
Turner, was met lv a vo'ley of nbuso from
ill the art trallories of Europe. His paint
ins. which have since won the applause of
a'l civilized nations "The Fifth Tlacuo of
Eypt." 'Fishermm on n L-m Shore Ii
S.ually Weather," "Calais Pier." "The Sun
Kisin Throu ch Mist" an 1 "Dido Buildinc
Carthago" were then targets for critics
to shoot af. In defense of this out
rageous' y abuse 1 man a youu author of
twenty-four voars, just one year out of
'odege, came forth with his pen mil
wrote the ablest and most famous essayi
in art that ths world ever saw or ever
will see John lliskia's "Modem Pain
tors." For seventeen years this author
fought the battles of the maltreated artist,
m l after, in poverty and broken hoartai
uess, the painter ha 1 died an 1 the public
tried to un lo their erirdtios toward him by
giving him a big funeral and burial in St.
Paul's cathedral, his old-time friend took
out of a tin b x l:l,0f! J pieces of paper on-t-ii-.iing
drawings by the old painter, and
thr nigh many weary and uncompensated
months assorted and arranged them for pub
lic observation. People say John Kuskln
in his old days Is cross, misaithroplc and
morbid. Whatever ho may do that he ought
nut to do, au 1 whatever he may say that ha
might tot to say b 'tween now an 1 his death,
ho will leave this world inso'vent as far as
it has any capacity to pay this author's pen
for its chivalric and Christian defense of a
poor painter's pencil. John Buskin for Will
iam Turner. Blood for blood. Substitution!
What au exalting principle this which
leads one to suffer for another! Nothing so
kindles enthusiasm or awakens eloquence,
or chimes poetio canto or moves nations.
The principle is the dominant one in our re
ligionChrist the martyr, Christ the celes
tial hero. Christ the defender, Christ the sub
stitute. No new principle, for it was as old
is human nature, but now on a grander,
wider, higher, deeper nnd mora World-re-sounding
scale. Tho shepherd boy as a
?hampiou for Israel, with a sling toppled
the giant of rtiilistina braggadocio in the
dust, but here is another David, who, for all
the armies of churches militant aud triumph
nit, hurls the Goliath of perdition Into de
Tent, th i crash of His brn'.en armor like an
xplosion at Hell Gate. Abraham had at
rod's command agree I lo sa trillco his son
Isaac, mi l tha same God just in time had
pnvided a ram of the thicket as a substitute.
Hut here is another Isnac bound to the altar,
m 1 no hand arrests tho sharp edges of lacer
itiou nn 1 death, and the universe shivers
md ipiakes aud recoils and groans at tha
aorror.
All good men have for centuries been try
n to tell whom this substitute was like,
md every comparison, inspired an t un'n--pire
1, evangelistic, prophetic, nposto'.ie aa I
luman falls short, for Christ was the Great
I "ulike. Adam a typo of Christ, because te
Jama directly from Gol; Noah a typj of
"hrist, because ha delivorol his own family
from the deluge; Melehlsodeea typi of Christ,
focauso ho had no pre leoessor or successor;
Joseph a type of Christ, because he was
?n.-t out by his brethren; Moses a type ot
Christ, because ho wasadelivererfrom bon 1
igo; Samson u type of Christ, because of his
streugth to slay the lions an 1 carry off tha
iron gates of impossibility; Soljmou a ty;o
if Christ in tha affluence of his dominion;
Jonah a type of CUrist, bojauseof the stormy
sea in which ho threw himself for the rescue
of others. But put together Adam and Noa'.i
net Molehlso lee an I Joseph au 1 Moses an 1
Joshua and Samson nnd Solomon an 1 Jonah,
and they would not make a fragment of a
Christ, a quarter of a Christ, tne half of a
Christ or the millionth part of a Christ.
Ho forsook a throueaud sat dowu on His
own footstool. Ha came from the top of
glory to the bottom of humiliation and
change 1 n circumference seraphic for a
circumference diabolic. Oa .-e waitelonby

From af.iran l high up Ha came down: past
meteors swifter than they; by starry thrones.
Himself mere lustrous; pa-t larger worl Is to
smaller worlds; down stairs of Armaments,
and from cloud to clou 1 au i through tree
tops and into the camel's stall, to thrust His
shoulder under our burdens ant take the
lances of p iin through His vitals, an I
wrapped Himself in all tha agonies which we
deserve for our misdoings and stoo t on tha

Substitute!
When did attorney ever endure so much
for a pauper client or physician for tha pa
tient in the lazaretto or mother for the chili!
in membranous croup, as Christ for us, a
Christ for you, as Christ for mc? Shall any
man or woman or child iu this audienca who
has ever suffered for another find it hard tc
understand this Christly suffering for us'r
Shall those whose sympathies have been
wrung iu behalf of the unfortunate have no
appreciation of that one moment which was
lilted out of all the ages of eternity as most
conspicuous, when Christ gathered up all
tha sius of those to be redeemed under His
one arm, and all his sorrows under His
other arm aud said: "I will atone for these
under My right arm nnd will heal all those
uuder My left arm. Strike Me with all thy
glittering shafts, O eternal justice! Roll
over M" with all thy surges, ye oceans of
sorrow'." An ! tha thunderbolts struck Him
from above, nnd the seas of trouble rolled
up from beneath, hurricane lifter hurricane,
and cyclone after cyclone, and then and
there iu the presence of heaven and earth
and hell yea. all worlds witnessing the
price, tic bitter price, t he tiauscendent price,
th ' awful price, the glorious price, the in
finite price, the eternal price, was paid that
sets lis free.
That is what Taul tneau; that is what I
mean; that is what all those who have ever
ha 1 their hearts chauge I mean by "blood."
I giory In this religion of blood. I am thrille 1
as I see the suggestlv co'or ia s icr.i-.ueutal
cup. whetlcr it b of burnished silver set
on cloth imma.m'.ately white or rough hewn
from woo 1 set on table in lo hut meeting
housa of the wilderness. Now I am thrilled
as I see the altars of aneieut sacrifice crimson
with the blood of the slain lamb and Leviti
cus is to me n d sj much the Old Testament
as tha New. Nw I see why the destroying
angel passing over Egypt in tha night spared
ail those houses "that had blood sprinkled
on th 'ic doorposts. ' Now I kuow what
I. -aiah means when he speaks of "one in re I
iu parel culling with dyed garments from
lio.-r.ih," and wh ) the" Apoca'ypse means
when it describes a heavenly chieftain whosa
vesture was dipped ia bljod," and what
Peter the apostle means when he speaks of
the "precious blood that cieanseth ail sin."
and what the oil woruout, decrepit, mis
sionary Paul means when in my text he
cries, "Without shedding of blood is no re
mission." By that bloo I you anil will be

Larger Purchases for Consumption
Cannot Longer lie Delayed.
Messrs. H. (1. Dun .t Co. 's review of
truile for the past week, issuel Satur
day, says: "Though steadily increas
iu lousiness is still muc1.! below its
volume in former years of prosperity,
iul many express lisapioiiitment.
Vet there is some Rain every week,
with more hands at work ami more
mines in operation, ami the sure result,
larger purchases for consumption, can
not lie lon tlelayed. In some branches
it is felt alreailj-. There is a larger
distribution of finished prod nets, and
the demand for commercial loans lias
sharply increased, especially in dry
.roods and the iron and steel branches.
" The progress of the iron and steel
industry is hindered by uncertainty re
garding the cost of lake ore for the com
ing year, though the repeated adjourn
ment of producers' meetings is inter
preted as evidence that an agreement
will be ultimately reached. It is re
ported that Norrie ore at j.!.?'. will be
taken as the basis, which would imply
ilxiut for Mesuba ores, but until
the question lias been settled many im
portant transactions are deferred. While
there is no great activity in finished
products, the demand steadily in
creases. Contracts for several great
buildings at Chicago are i ending, and
for a good many bridges and other rail
road works, and the demand for wire
nails and for wire does not abate,
neither the demand for black sheets re
ipiired in the tin plate manufacture.
lthough shipments tf boots and shoes
are almost as large as many previous
years, it is announced that one or two
of the largest works have closed for
want of orders. At the same time many
other concerns are taking verj- large
orders, it is claimed, at prices below
those generally quoted. Xo change
whatever appears in quotations of
leather this week and the Chicago
market for hides fluctuates with a
slight change reported downward.
While manufacturers of cotton goods
are looking forward with much confi
dence, the present demand is not equal
to expectations, nor has the curtail
ment in production of print cloths ac
complished the desired change in con
dition. The buying of wood, mainly
of a speculative character in expectation
of new duties, continues remarkably
large. Sales at .he three chief markets
for the past week were 111, sill, !M
pounds. No great increase has vet ap
peared in the demand for goods, al
though a few more mills have found
enough orders to start, perhaps in part
anticipating a future demand. The ex
pectation of new duties does not influ
ence the woolen .oods market as might
be expected.
"1 he volume of business indicated
by clearing house exchanges is smaller
than last year. The average of daily
exchanges for the month is li.tl per cent,
less than last year.
"Failures for the week have been 01'!
in the United States, against '2M last
year, and .'.(I in Canada, against 4'l last

The North Carolina State Fair for
1S'.)7 w ill be held during October, from
the lsth to the 2-'id inclusive, on the
State Fair grounds near Raleigh. As
is well known, the Fair is held uuder
the auspices of the North Carolina Ag
ricultural Society. There was a meet
ing of the directors of this organization
held iu l.aleigh, and it was at this
meeting that the date for the Fair was
decided Uon. Col. I5euehan Cameron,
I i esi.ient, and a nnmbjr of other mem
bers of the board were in attendance.
I'uring the session President Cam
eron was instructed to appoint commit
tees on premiums and for the arrange

these are not prepared for publication.
In speaking of the F'air, Col. Cameron
remarked that the prospects for the suc

ever before and the 1S:i7 Fair promises
to eciipse that of any previous year.
The dates selected were made necessary

similar events in other Statea and will
allow the presence here of attractions

appointed by President Cameron will
doubtless be made public within the
next few days.

At a meeting of the directors of the
Coleman Manufacturing Company,
held in Concord on last Sat
urday, the directors examined all
the correspondence and various propo
sitions which nave been made to the
corporation, and have now decided
that the mill will certainly be built.
W. C. Coleman tendered his bond as
secretary and treasurer in the sum of
Sio.oooand as it was signed by a large
number of the best white citizens, it
was at once accepted.
The subscriptions already made to
the enterprise justifies the directors in
empowering their secretary and treas
urer to receive additional subscriptions
to the capital stock. There was an as
sessment of ten per cent, on the stock
payable inside of sixty days. The
secretary and treasurer was authorized
to secure the services of a competent
architect, and also to advertise for bills
of contractors for the buildings. It is
expected that the Southern llailway
will construct a switch at an early day
for the benefit of the property.
Parties interested in other parts of
the town have already ollered to do
nate a sight for the mill on the line of
the new proposed railroad from Con
cord to Aberdeen within the limits of
the town, and the propositions are
being considered.

HOUSE.
Monday The opening of the Fifty
fifth Congress in extraordinary session
was witnessed in the House today
by au immense corwd. Alexander
McDowell, clerk of the last House,
called the House to order. The election
ot Speaker was then proceeded with,
the result being: For Mr. Reed, 111'.):
for Mr. Bailey, 114; for Mr. Bell, 21;
for Mr. Newlands, of Nevada, 1. The
President's message was read and re
ferred, on motion of Mr. Dinglej, to
the committee on wavs and means." Mr.
Dingley then introifuced his tariff bill,
which was also referred to the commit

and means to sit during the session of

the House the recommendations of the
Postmaster General for an appropria
tion of $200,000 to be immediately
available, to enable the government to
defray the necessary expenses of the

ment finds itself in the embarrassing
position of having the congress on its

STi'l::AY. --'Ihe fir'-t week of the e
traordinary session of the Fifty-fifth
Congress closed with to-day's si-s-iou

they were finally agreed iiHn by the
last House. Two of these, the agricul
tural and Indian, were considered and
disjosed of. The former, appropriat-

sundry civil and reneral defi

which the Senate added to the bill.
The debate on the tariff bill will begin

Hotv Two to Four Bale Per Acre
Are. Made on Very Poor Land.
We have not the blightest desire to
assist in any manner in bringing about
an increase in tho number of bales
annually raised throughout the Sunny
South in general cor in Mississippi in
particular, but . do de.siro that
Southern farmers everywhere should
realize the fact that the same (S.OOO.OOO
to 10,(H0,(!()() bales thai are now raised
annually may be jiibt aa easily, just as
burely and far more economically and
profitably raised on one-fourth the
area it is to-day, leaving the other
three-fourths to be put in provision
crops, fruits or grase. We have had
the good fortune to tee and walk over
many Georgia farms farms, too, that
were worn out and washed away many
yeart ago that aro now made to pro
duce from one to four bales of cotton
per acre. This condition of things is
made possible BUtl actually brought
about by tbo "intensive" pyutem of
culturo and liberal yet economical
fertilization.
As early in the new year as the
weather will possible admit of, tho old
cotton stalks are "knocked," or cut,
tho roots are then flowed tip
with straight shovel; green cotton
seed aro then strewn in this shovel
furrow at the rate of ten to twelve
bushels per acre; two half-shovel fur
rows are next thrown on the seed to
prevent the loss of ammonia; in a few
weeks this small bed is opened with a
long, narrow scooter and 200 to IIOO
pounds of some good commercial fertil
izer distributed in this furrow; phos
phate and potash being all sufficient,
the cotton seed furnishing the
necessary nitrogen ; the land is then
bedded out and out with straight
shovel and is now ready for the
reception of the seed. Under this
plan, persistently followed, Georgia
farmers have succeeded in so in
creasing the fertility of the soil that
with a slight increaso in amount of
fertilizer used and favorablo season
four bales per acre havo rewarded
their efforts. ,
A good heavy cow-pea stubble
turned under will be found to bo fully
as ber.eGcial to the coming cotton crop
as the cotton seed; cither one will
supply all the nitrogen needed; but
in the absence of a cow-pea stubble,
the cotton seed should by no means be
neglected. Stable manure may be
used instead of either of above, but
the fact should bo kept in mind that
all three of above ard "nitrogenous"
fertilisers, and are nsed mainly for the
amount of nitrogen they contain ; and
either one, or all three need the addition
of phosphates and" potash in liberal
quantities (seventy-five pounds of Mu
riate of Potash or 300 pounds of Kainit,
with 200 pounds of Acid Phosphate)
per acre in order to make a complete
fertilizer that shall bo at onco proper
ly balanced and dnly proportioned. If
the peas have been properly fertilized
(with 200 to 300 pounds Acid Phos
phate and 200 to 300 ponndsof Kainit),
which they always should bo when Ihe
object in raising them is that may be
turnedsUnder as fertilizer, it would be
hardly necessary to apply any addi
tional fertilizer directly to tho cotton.
Georgia farmers break their lands
deep (eight to ten or even twelve
inches) once about every three years;
they say it does not pay to break them
deep any oftener. In this deep break
ing, the land is broken with a two
horse turning plow, plowing about one
inch deeper than the surface soil, thus
pradually deepening the soil. No crops
aro planted Lere at all without fertili
zer being applied, and in the sandier
portions of tho State the farmers seem
to be unanimous in the declaration
that "Potash is the element that is
most needeu" and that "any fertilizer
that does not contain as much as four
per cent, of it is not worth applying."
Cotton here is planted in four foot
rows, barn d off with balf-shovels and
cultivated the entire season "with
cotton scrapes" i. e. "heel-sweejis."
Caught t'p with the Herd.
Southern railroads have a reputation
for slow travel, and in some cases it is
well merlnsl. A western traveling man
making a trip on the.? lines sufTi-nil

particular falling, but up to the time
of the following iiiHilfiit ho had enjoy

Jackson and Walling Pay the Death
I'enaity.
Saturday at Newport, Ky., the once
promising lives of Scott Jackson and
Alonzo Walling, the young den
tal students, paid the ienalty ou
the gallows for the murder of the
sweet faced country gil, Pearl
Bryan, of Green Castle Ind., aud the
extinguishing at the same time of the
tiny spark of life that had driven her to
deseration through fear of open
shame. The scene w as Fort Thomas
and the date February 1st, lsni. The
victim was decapitated to prevent iden
tification and the head has never been
located. The arrest, trials, "confes
sions" and the awful sequel have Wen
largely of the siectacular order, es
pecially the closing hours of the trage
dy at NewiKUt, Ky. Walliug's fate
seemed swaying in the balance, and
the .l.OiHl eople. with a plentiful
sprinkling of richly uniformed militia
acting as guards, w'aited with interest
at highest tension for the springing of
me iatai trap, or the announcement of
the clemency exteuded by Governor
Bradley.
At 11:40 the double track was sprung
and they swung in mid air twenty min
utes before the horrible work of stran
gulation was completed. The hour
originally set w as o'clock, but almost
as the start was made for the gallows
Jackson made another "confession," in
which he said Walling was not guilty
of "w illful murder. " Again the Gov
erner was iqipeah-d to at Frankfort by
wire, Jackson himself telegraphing:
"Walling is not guilty of this crime,
but 1 am." Filially, the Go-emor,
after patient investigation of Jiicksou's
tardy attempt to save his comrade, in
cluding a long-distance telephone con
sultation with Judge Helm, the trial
judge, ami the attorneys in the case
sealed anew the doom of both by de
claring against further delay.
Jackson is said to have left still
another written confession to be pub
lished, or not. as his friends may see
lit. '1 he one of Thursday, diabolically
trying to shift a part of tlie crime on aii
innocent man, both Jackson aud Wall
ing acknowledged this morning to bs a
fake. As there was object ion to receiv
ing the body of Jackson for burial in
the Green Castle Cemetery, it was
shipiH'd this evening over the Big
Four to his former home at Wininsoe,
Maine. Wallings body was taken to
Hamilton, Ohio, by "his family for
burial.
