We, the people, bare no objec
tion to Republican organization in
the Soath. Indeed we prefer it.
for it will be a powerful assistant to

Washington, April .". The fol
lowing proclamation was issued
late this afternoon :
A hundred years have passed
since the government which our
forefathers founded was formally
organized. At noon on the thirtieth
day of April, 17S9, in the city of
New York, and in tbe presence of
nn assemablage of heroic men,
whose patriotic derotion had led
the colonies to victory and inde
pendence, George vVashington took
the oath of office as Cbief Magis
trate of the new born Republic.
This impressive act was preceded
at 0 o'clock in the morning in all
the churches o( the city, by a
prayer for God's blessing on the
Government and its first President.
The centennial of this lllusTious
event In our history ha ueen de
clared a central holiday by act of
Congress, to the end that the peo
pie of tbe whole ooantry may join
in commemorative exercises appro
priate to the day.
In order that the joy of the oc
casion may be associated with deep
thankfulness in the minds of the
people tor all blessinga in tbe past
and devout supplication to God for
their gracious continuace in the
future, rpr8enUtiTea of the re
ligious creeds, both Chriatian and
Hebrew, hare memorialized tbe
Government to designate an hour
for prayer and thanksriring on
that day.
Now therefore I, Benjamin Har
rison, President of the United
States of America, in response to
the piouu and reasonable request,
do recommend that on Tuesday
April 30, at the hour of 9 o'clock iu
the morning, the people of the
entire conntry repair to their re-
apective places of dirine worship to
implore the faror of God, that the
blessings of liberty, prosperity and
peace may abide with us as a peo
pie, and that His hand may lead
us in the paths of righteousness
and good deeds.
Ia witness whereof 1 hare here

The. crop of cotton is reported as
being very large, possibly greater
than that ol any recent year. Yet
the demand lor tbe staple con
tinues, and the size of tbe crop
see ma justified by the demand.
Tbe manufacture of cotton goods Is
now profitable, and new mills are
in course of erection in all parts of
America, and in this movement the
South is conspicuous. Soon the
raw material will be manufactured
oa the large scale near the place
where it is grown, and the New
England mills will be handicapped
by their distance trom the cotton
fields, iu tbe competition with their
Soathern rivals. The outlook for
cotton is therefore a bright one.
Wool, the other great textile
staple, cannot be so well placed in
the economic sense, owing to the
great deficiency of reliable statis
tics. At a iecent convention, the
National Association of Wool
Growers took steps for establishing
a better system, including the or
ganization of a central bureau of
statistics. When this Is carried out,
the wool producer will be greatly
benefited, not only by accurate
statements and forecaata of the
market, bnt by a better gradation!
of qualities. It is proposed to I
have this matter, the grading of!
wool, taken up by the Association. I
Few staples need grading more im
eratively, as wool suited for one
bran.n of manufacture may lie
quite un adapted to another; the;
carpet maker needs a material
totally different from that required 1
by the manufacturer of tbe zephyr

j B'a people taking small pox he is
j an idiot not to try to do it. Ac-
cording to the (lospi l ot "Poor
Richard" mightier with many
I than the Gospel of the Son of God,
I "An ounce of prevention h worth
a pound of cure.' '
Unless ignorance as tome seem
to think, is '-favorable to spiritual
ity," A can no more afford for B's
children whether they be white
or black, red or yellow to grow np
in ignorance than he can afford for
them to catch anil spread small
poi. I f "ignorance is favorable to
vice," as history seems to "teach
by example," it is cheaper for A to
be taxed to educate B's children
(whether B won't or can't don't
change A's interest in the case)
now than to be taxed to jail, or
hang them by and by.
The United States government,
after a hundred y ears of experi

"ot many years ago a young
man came in town to finish his
Studies at the office of one of our
best lawyers. He waa well edu
cated, intelligent, agreeable and
kind ; but he was poor, and in
order to support himself, tried to
get a class in French. A few
scholars came, anil the thing did
not pay. After a while he paid
his landlady, left his boarding
house, and took to the woods. On
the tide of a hill, in a thick pine
grove, he pitched his tent, where
he cooked Ins food, ate, slept and
6tudied. Of course, his strange
conduct made a great deal of tal-fc.
One morning after a terrible thun
der storm during the night, his
friends hunted him up.
" You'll be sick of your bargain
after- this," they said, "and be
glad enough to have a water proof
roof over vour head."
'I did not take to the woods
from choice," answered the young
man. "I could not see my war
clear to pay for lodgings, and I am
resolved never to be in debt. I
know too well the danger of boing
in debt; my scanty income will
carry me through the summer, when
I hope better times are coming'
Gentlemen offered to aid him,
but ho sturdily refused their of
fers, got through his studies, and
has now a large business, which
handsomely supports him.
Was not that pluck ? And did
he not well think that the danger
of being in debt is a s-erions dan

spending freely, having things
oharged, neglecting to pay, and
not keeping his promise, lie is in a
bad way. He forgets, lu-s, loses
bis sell respect, and is slowly but
surely letting himself down, down, i

shows how jar down it inly be, j

ol the worst murders ever com-!

respectable men to ii?c their tltbt.'
One killed his intimate friend be-,
cause he could not pay a debt
which he was owing him. The
other a voung man shot m cold-

sociate, that he might rob the
bank he was in of a few thousand
to pay his debts with. Both did
their work coolly, and apparently
without any twinges ol conscience.
Both were above all suspicion.

in one locality. He said I must
show it to everybody 3nd aa they
were of such superior make and
finish everybody would be sare to
buy orje lrom him, I concluded
that as the hawks were so bad I
would send and get it. After
due time I received the gun and
telescope too, but I could neither
load the g:n nor adjust the tele
scope, for it was an immense pic
ruro of a real fine breech loader and
a picture of a fine telescope with
the modest requst that if I would
do a certain amount of work which
he said I could easily do or send
him twenty dollars I could get the
gun and five dollars for the tele
scope. Well, I did not send, could
not see the groat chance thac he
saw lor me to make money.
A Viirsu exquisite who thought
that au ey e glass would improve
his appearance, went into an opti
cian s and was a long time trying
to find one to suit him- None of
them would do: they were either
too strong or too weak for his
sight. At length he found one that
was just right, and inquired the
price. Surprised at the selection
he had made, the optician, after
looking at him in blank astonish
ment, ventured to ask what num
ber of glass ae would like for the
empty frame he had picked out.
