.EDI CATION 1ST TKNNKSNKE.
It is gratifying to toe Nashville pa
yers recognising ihe at solute necei
aity that exists for a more extended
and complete systom of educttlon in
Tennessee. . The State has not schools
enough, nor are theso schools kept
open a sufficient portion of the year.
Firat are wanted institutes for prepar
ing tenchoM and equipping them with
the knowledge and skill required.
We see that Ihe Weakley Institute will
apply to the next Legislature for f 10,
000 for conducting normal institute-,
and more applications may be looked
for. Too fct that there are 221,003
children in the Suite that do not go to
school shows the necessity for more
jpx'ended S'.ate aid to education. The
KasWllt) I'nlm declares th-t "the
people are beginning to clamor for
better schools;" "tho o'ainor Las
started, the people arc no longer golilg
to put np with the dirgrace. The
children of Tennessee will not be per
mitted to grow Up in ignorance."
Finally (he ftmon declares that the
people cannot be choked oil with
trumped np absurdities coming from
politicians and from men who are op
posed to educating the people. The
American contends that the leaeon
education dees not proceed more sue
ceesfuily in Tennessee is because
"there is a lack of public interest in
many porta of the Btate in the ques
; . Hop, and the public have not become
aroused on the question.' There is
truth in this undoubtedly, for a peo
ple dots not suddenly adopt new
habits,' and universal education is not
an old habit in Tonnersee. There are
narrow souls too, who ire willing the
people shall remain ignorant ; a proof
of the littlo regird they have for the
jre-jputation end prosperity of the State
of which they are unworthy members
In proportion as the advantages of ed
ucation Rre scon in those who receive
instruction, parent demand nitmlar
inslruction for their own offspring,
Only supply the means of education,
and every year they will more and
more be appreciated and tuken a J
vantage of. The American t statement
that the people are not sufficiently
aware of the advantages of education
to desire it as they should, is as strong
a proof as can be given that Tonnes-
see has not yet properly availed itself
of the benefits education confer.
That what education there is in
Ten nf 8' to ia producing a de
lira for more, even the American
shows when it cays: "There has been
Blow but steady and healthy growth in
pablic sentiment in favor of education
through public echools. The Ameri
can ia opposed to receiving from Con
gress the help offered by the B'airbill
this makes it incumbent upon it to
urge upon the Legislature to supply
tbe funds that bill offered rom an
other source. The children of Tun
notsae must be educated, and such a
State as this cannot afford to be cursed
hj ignorance. Every human being
llring on lti toil must bare oflered to
it itood, soatid, icbool instruction.
THE COST OF FBOHIBITIOS.
If private property be taxed for
public use it must be paid for, and if
piivate property be destroyed or ren
dered valueless compensation must be
made. In accordance with this piin
ciple, Judge Brower, of the United
States Court, decided a - ear ago in
a Kansas liquor case, that the mina
facture and sale ot liqurr were lawfnl
vocations, recoan'zed in the 8tate be
fore they were prohibited. There
fore, owners must bo indemnified
when the Btate, without the consent
of the owner, impairs tho value of dis
tilleries, briweii s and ether property,
with their apparatus and ottier ma
chinery, and of leases and other con
tracts growing out of tho business.
The S;ae can prohibit what it has be
fore allowed, but it baa to take the re
sponsibility for the injury done to
private property by the change. Be
fore this decision was given it had al
ways boen found more difficult to get
the prohibition law into working
operation tiiaa to get it passed by the
Legislature, and this is one reason
why many temperance people prefer
high lieensa and few saloons, to pro
hibition and unlicensed traffic. The
Webster decision has vastly increased
the difficulty of carrying out the pro

March last. In li s inaugural addrees
Our present financial condition ia wlthou'
parallel in history. No nation bal .v.r
before been em bummed from too large a
surplus In its treasury. Thil almost nec
fimiirliy gives birth to extravagant logisla
tion. It iiroilurna wild achemea ol expend
iture, and lietr.t. a race of speculators and
jobbers, whose ingenuity ia exerted in con
triving and promoting exiedionta to obtain
publio mono?. Tlie purity of official agents,
whether rightfully or wrongfully, ia sus
pected, and the character of the government
suffers in the estimation of the people. Thia
ia in Itself a Tory (rent evil. The natural
mode of relief from thu embarrassment ia
to appropriate the aurplua in the Trcasui y to
great natural object for which a clear war
rant can b found in the constitution.
Among t cue I might mention tho ex
tinguishment of the public debt; a rea
sonable increase of the navy, which ia
atpreaent inadequate to the protection of
our vaet tonnage illot, now greater tban
that ol any othor nation, aa well as to the
det'enso of our extended aeacoaat. Itisbo
yond all nuostlon the true prinolplo that no
more revenue ought to be colleoted froui the
Poople than the amount necessary to defray
tho expenses of a wise, economical and effi
cient administration of the government. To
roach this point it waa necessary to ro-ort to
a modification of the tariff; and thia haa, I
trust, been accomplished in such a manner
as to do as little injury as may have been
practicable to our domestio manufactures,
eapeoiaily thoin necossary lor the defense of
the country. Any discrimination against a
particular brnnoh, for the put pose of bene
fiting favored corporation!, individuals, or
interests, would hare been unjust to the rest
of tho o mmunity and inconsistsnt with that
spirit of fairncsa and euuality which ought
to govorn in the adjustment of a revenui
tar i IT.
The Democrats who have stood firm
ly by the rrcird and pledges ol the
party, have for tho laat six months
been influenced by thu advice of James
Buchanan, given thirty yeara ago,
when there w.ia, as now, a surplus in
tho Treasury. Mr. Buchanan thought
a superabundance of revenue waa a
conupt ng force. It .is coitainly so
now, as members of Congrers have
taxed their ingenuity, luid awa'..e at
night concocting echomes to squander
the surplus revenue. Mr. Buchanan
congra'.u'a'ed tho country tlmt the
tariff had beon so modified that "no
moro revenue would ha collected from
the people than the amount necoseary
to defrej (he expenses of a wise, eco
nomical and efficient administration
of the government." But the country
cannot now be congratulated on a sim
ilar achievement, for the revenues col
lected undt r tho pretext that the neces
sities of the war period Imposed are still
collected alter more than twenty
years of peace, tending to wasteful
ntfiS, eit'avnunnce and demoraliza
tion in the legislation Of Congress.
The farmer, upon whom theae war
taxes fall most heavily, is the ono man
in all the community who ia out of
the roach ol protection, and r.6 won
der they complain and feel outraged
nsd oppressed by useless tariff duties
levied to protect other Indutt'iesat
their oxpet). The propos'tion of
Mr. Morrison to appropriate the sur
plus in the Treasury to the extin
guishment of the public debt is noth

Til K " OTEKl'liODCVTlON " CRY.
Every now and then some news
paper burn's into a protest about
"overproduction." As far as the neces
saries aad modest comforts of life go
thero is no overproduction. In a
neighborhood where many among the
popu'ation are without shoes, it is folly
for the shoemaker to declare that he
cannot find customers for his stock
because there is an overproduction of
shoes. If a country can find no buy
ers for its wheat because a lario crop
has brought about "overproduction,"
while within two or three weeks' sail
there is a people in misery on account
of the high price and scarcity of
broad, their certainly is no overpro
duction. I.9t tho tax on grain that
makes bread dear be removed, and tho
farmers will have customers for their
vhea(, and tho hungry will be sup
p'ied with cheap broad. The Meri
dian (Mies) JSVtvi last week com
plained that customers cannot bo
found for "the splendid butter manu
factured at Macon, Miss. The Xcwt
adds: "Overproduction is just
now crushing the life out of
industries all over the United
States, and it is particularly felt in a
toction like the South which Is la-gely
agricultural and where the producers
aie necessarily in excess of the con
sumers." How many thousands have
little or no butter while this lament
about over production is going on.
Of all tho strange paradoxes existing,
to see store keepers become bankrupt
because over production has caused
more competition than they can
bear, whilo another portion of the
community is ill fed and ill clothed
for want of tho very things the Store
keeper say there are to many of, is
one of the strangest. The Chatta
nooga Tradeeman declares tbat with
tbe plenteous crops in view "nobody
ought to go hungry." But, contin
ues that journal, "supplies benefit
only those who havemeans to buy
them, and thousands upon thousands
in onr over done and congested indus
tries have to little money that they
must be small coneumers of bread and
meat. In many important manufact
uring lines the hands are getting bat a
few months' work In the yea'. Many
who earned from $400 to $750 in brisk
times muit now, in thousands of in
s'ances, live on 2G0 or lees if they
can. This is a fruitful cause of the
hard times." The Tadcinan his
struck the true solu'ion of the difficul
ty. Monopoly and short sighted greed
reduce wages. The impoverished la
borers cannot buy 'in proportion to
their wants. The money to buy is
mainly owned by tbe rich faw; the
mass of the people being grou:d to
poveity are poor customers t the
tradesman. With ample wtges to the
working people, and with laws tbat
will permit the surplus of one country
to ba exchanged for the surplus of
another, we should hear no complain
ing of over pioduction.
THE ADVANCTNU SOUTH.
More and mora, as the spiiit of en
terprise arouses, is attention turning
to the South as offering the gteateet in
ducements to effort and capital. The
New York Indicator, a wide awake
Wall street pspsr, ea'd in last Friday's
imue: 'We find there is much inter
est felt here in the South" for "the
Bouth is fast becoming the Mecca
toward which many pjop'o are turn
ing. Both capital and labor are look
ing towa-d the South as the most
promising and least crowded field of en
terprise, '.'while "few havean intelligent
idea how rapid ia this growth
A most notable featura of the progress
of tho South is the increase in divers
ity of its products. It is no longer the
land of cotton exclusively or nearly
eo. Cotton production has n.t de
creased, but other industries have been
created or their development been
increased." - The Indicator then gives
its readers some Southern facts
and figure, and in conclusion re
marks: "This rapid growth is both
the result of tho advent of new capital
and the inducement for additional
capital to go into the South. We be
hove tbe next five years will show
greater progress than the las'; five
years have witnewed." Do we, who
are In the South, always estiiuuto our
advantages and prospects as highly as
they .deserve, and as they appear to
unbiased lookers on? Let us take
courage and boldly avail oureelves of
the opportunities within our grasp.

' Louibvilli, Kv., July 23. A horri

county, Ky. Some six months ago a
man named YTihon took chirgj of the
district school there, lie appeared
educated aud gontlemanly, and made
a favorable impression with parents
and eeholats. Everything went
smoothly until last Wednf sJoy, when
it is alleged he detained three of hln
pupils (little, girls ssven, eight and
nine years of use), after tbe o'her
scholars left. When the room was
clear he locked the door and deliber
ately outraged the three children. He
let them go homo about dusk, and
they told their parents. A mob was
organlced at once to lynch tho brute,
but ho escaped, giing to Sulphur Sta
tion, five miles distant. News of the
outrage had preceded him and a crowd
caught bitn here, stripped him naked,
tied him to a ties and gave him 1(10
Inshrs. Ho was then given five min

C n m n ed there waa a i o iceable
change in the line of at'ack. An en
tirely new theoiy of the mo
tives actuating Spies and his
conferres was qnickly shown to
have beon adoptod. Tuis was
that the defendants, far from being the
dangerous characters depicted by the
longatring of reporters and officers
succaedirg each other on the s and,
had been purposely humbugging these
wi;ne3ees at every available opportun
ity, but fcr a most laudable purpese.
They were simply tryiDg to get up a
ecara among the capitalists so as to
benefit the laboring man. A number
of. witnesses were examined, all of
whom corroborated the testimony
heretofore given, bnt developed no
new or sensational features.
The cession of the court was pro

admitted by the court on the ground
that the defendants were recommend
ing the course of action there pre

and an exception noted; Upon being

with unflagging interest. They retired

Chicago, III , July 23. The firm of

en In prin'ingmateria's at 178Mon-oe
street, failed today. Lst evening
about JG000 worth of stcck was at
tached by the Sheriff to settle rff a
c'aim of a New York creditor. Thia
morning tbe Sheriff executed an at
tachment for $7000 taken out by the
Nev York Dyeing and Printing Com

the firm's property thit was in the
hands of the Sheriff. This afternoon
Mr. Hoolo, the surviving partor of
the firm, made an assignment in favor
of Warren O. Tyler. Mr. Hoole placed
the liabilities of the firm at f 300,000
with a1 sets of an equal amount. The
creditors of the firm are nearly all
Eastern houses. The stock in the

nounced it cancer. 1 have tried a nnmbcr of pbyicla,n, bnt without n-celving any perma
nent benefit. Among the number were one or two specialtou. Tho medicine tney applied
waa like Are to the Bore, causing intense pain. I saw a statement in the papers telling what
8. S. 8. had done for others similarly afflicted. I procured some at once. Before I haa used
the second bottle tlie neighbors could notice that uiy cancer waa lieoling up. My general
health had been baa for two or three years 1 haa a backlnjt cougn ana spit blood contin
ually. I had a severe pain in my breast. After taking six bottlcn of S. S. 8. my cough left
me and I grew stouter than I hail been for several years. My cancer hits healed over all but
a little spot about the size of a Imir dime, and it rapidly disappearing. 1 would advise
everyone with cancer to give S. S. 8. a fair trial.

Tbe Danger Before Vs.
We have already alluded ti the im
pDrlance of housekeepers paying more
attention to tie kind of baking powder
used in leavenicg their bread. 'I his
is a matter to which we cannot draw
attention too often, because it is snme
thiiig which involves the most soriouB
consequences to the general body of
mankind. Temperance apostles tell us
and tlit-re is ample foundation for tbe
statement that there is disease, both
moral and physical, in the intoxicating
cup ; and in the tame way there is dis
ease, slow perhaps, but, certain, in
the leavenirg agent which is employed
in one-helf the homes on ttns con
tinent jsicknees, perhaps death, in the
bread we eat eve.y meal slow pohnn,
placed there, t90, by loving hands, by
mothers whose every thought is for the
healih and happiness of their children,
by wivts whoss chief solace is the
life and comf .rt of their husbands.
Tne victim of intoxication goes to his
fate with a full conscionsnees of what
be is doing; but the vie im of adulter
ated and poisonous baking powder
falls and knows not whence coin's
the blow that Btruck him. Thec r
tificaus of chemists with high sound
ing titles have been read in con
fidence; the toothsome cake has been
given in generous abundance to the
children; the daily bread has been
eaten in fancied eecurity. But all the
time the poison haa been working its
s'ow effrct. Thera come spells of
headacte, loes of appetite, a fluttering
of tbe heart: the child is seized with
an apparently causeless cough. The
coatiag of tlie stomach is destroyed,
perhaps; one of the vital organs is
tendered el most useless ; the kidneys
are a tacked withB ight's disease. The
health of the child is irreparably
broken down; the td'ik becomes a
chronic invalid, 'i'lieeeare the doings
of the modern cheap baking nowdera
that are composed of time, alum, acids
and otber vile things.
la view cf these facts surely all
houeer.ivcs should exercise the tare
tbat is, we know, to n exercised by
some in their selections cf a proper
brand of bjking powder. She who
does not do eo, whether the neglect is
tbe result cf ignorance or recklessness,
cannot free herceif from the responsi
bility for the health, perhapi life,
thereby endangred. Mo housewite
need ba ignorant of Ihe quality and
composition of tbe atticle which she
uses to leaven her bread, biscuit
and cake. The ofibial reports of tbe
government chern Bts. wno are cer
tainly unprejudiced, have been pub
lished, aud ehow veiy cleariy the
quality end s'i'ength of ad the bak
ing powderj in the market.
The Royal Baking Powder which is
accessible- at every hand, is reported
absolutely free from lime, alum, phos-
poetic acid, or any lujutious ingre
dients. It is further stated by the
most eminent authorities on food hy
giene that food leavened with it is
more wholesome than when raite by
any otber method. Its use is, there
foie, to be commended. It is to be re
gretted that no o'.her baking powder,
when there are eo manv ia the mar
ked some of which will find their way
into us?, is free frcm a'l of these sub
stances. They all contain either limo
or alum. The housekeeper who re
gards the health of her lovel ones
should not only order the Keyal, but
make personal examination to be sure
