cold ficzw facts, as ctr'ain as fate and
a irrefutable s fijfrrrs. The growth
of tbe Louisville, N-iW Orleans and
Teiai Kiilriad, otherwiaa known as
the MUtdsBippi Val'ey, has befti pbe
rjominal, and abunduotly jnMififB the
sagacity and fireeijrht of Its prott rs
and builders, Meists. K. t. Viieon
and C V Uunt ntrton. A flight ret
to pHCtive glance at stlient fat ta in its
hutory may nt't be without intrt tt to
cur teadere. In Mar, 1882, Mr. Wil
son went ovtr the pi opoerd route; in
Juneot the tarns year the surveys
were bef tin ; in S ptember, 1882, con
ttruttun as commenced, and in
Beptt ruber, 188t, the main line from
Altnipiiis 10 New O.letus wai com
pletftl. The lirtt comple'e pchoi'uie
was put in optration Oct. 12, 1884.
The territory traveled by tne
new road was throughout I a'f its
lergth ptactically an uuexplon d re
gion ai:d in s me placta aa unhrt ken
wilderness. From Memphis to Viuks
I burg there were but tix points that
Ire Bo to lie diftnity of village: (-lurks-dale,
Ptont-ville, Areola, McKinney
ville (now Angnil'a), and Killing
Fork. Today theie are thirty to sta
tions between here and Vickaburg,
twen'y of them thriving villages, on
third of them with po; nlu'los in ex
cess of ldO a- d one with 3 ,0 inhabit
ants. The development of tbe lands
arj icent to the read, but aeiarated
Iran it by dittaoces of from bve to
tnn miifs, v,i 1 he referred toherrafter.
We have row to do with matters con
nected with the farlitr history rf th
road. Durirgthe wlrter of 1884-85
tbe schedule was necessarily tlow,
owing to the soft acd yielding charac
ter of the alluvial soil upon which a
great poition of it was built. Ia order
to remedy this defect the road, for a
d stance of 200 mile", was bal
lasted wi:h ear.d it a depth
of from twelve inches to two feet.
In 1885 the work of ballasting wiih
cravtl was begun, and in order to
facilitate Iho work and insure an
abundant supply of miterial, tbe com
pany pun-baaed a gravel 1 it on the
Tallabatcbie river, in Panola county,
Miss , with capacity to b-illrst the en
tire roadbtd. During the last summer
eixtv miles v,e-e balUstrd in this way,
and it is purposed to eit nd the work
t ver the entire line. The rtwin lii e is
4&5 milts in length and i's schedule is
twenty-eight and one-half mil's an
hour, which could eisily be ini reaped
to thirty mi'es but fjr fr qu'Dt stop
pages between hre and Claiksdale to

end of the calendar year. Durirg the
year 1885 it carried into N-wO. leans
29),000 bales of cotton, and tiittvear's
operations will exceed that fig ire,
notwithstanding th' large bole
knexked ii.t) New Orleans receipts
by Memphis compet'tion. As
measure of the company's in
crease of business, it may he s'o'ed
that in the season of 1884-1885,
ont of a total crop of 39,' 00
bales raised in Washington county,
Miaait S'ppi, the company carriel 16,000,
the ettamboats 23,000 tsVes. I 188:

of cotton in the same county, it cr
r ed 41,000 bales, tbe steamboa s 16,000.
This year they have carried ont of
Greenville alone, up to this period, five
or six times tbe quantity handled by
them last season. Between
NIW ORLEANS AMD BATON BOUOC
they da a heavy traffic in tbe
tranep-rtaion of tice, sugar ard
molasees, and the business be
tween these points shows a steady
increase. At Haotirjg'.oiu Misc.- the
company last year received 27,435
bales of cot 'on, this year the receipt!
at the same po'nt will aggregate 100,
000 bales. At Vicksburg lsst year it
handl-d for carriage to the seaboard
1(9,000 bales, which amount will be
added to during tbe current
year. These facts were gleaned
from an interview had by
an Appbal repirter yet?rday with
Air. A. M. Uook, assistant general
manager of the rrat. An interview
with Maj. O. W. McGinn!', land com
m ssioner, resulted in tbe discloiureof

We are commanded to give thanks

that we should confine onr thanks
giving to tbe blessings which have
been showered upon our own land.
1. A we look abroad over the earth
we find many indications of gcod for
the nations. Ihe mainity of the
great na' ions of Europe havo more re
gard for the rights of weak r nations
than ever before. While Kuesia
would still rule wiih an iron band and
subject weaker powers to her control,
iMigianu, uerminv. Ans'.ria and Italy
uuiie to prot-ct Bulgaria in her inde
pendence, aud tj dufei d her from
Kiiss an dictation. In a'l time pant,
war has been one cf tho greitest evils.
asd it would seem that thnoulyway
tn prevent v, is lor the civt 1.0I Uliua
tian nati.n s to comhiue and f.ty whst
is light, and Btethat it is dune. Ia
this reipect the world was never an
near the standard of righteousness as
it is today.
2. While there is cause for thanks
giving for the civil right) of the na
110ns, there is hho cnu-e of tbnuke
givirgwhen we con-tider ther re
ligions condiii in. China and India
are tbe lines of the hum in raco,
Nearly one-hull the pnpula im of the

there are a'gns ol awakenirg. 'Ihe
seeds of Christianity end reform have
been widely sown. The power of
caste is giving way. The burning cf
widows upon the funeral pyres of
their husbands ard tbe d si nut tin of
s;ckly children bave been forbidden
by law. The eduiat'on and amelio

O erthe world and the time la no
approaching when it shal bs istub
lished upou the tops of tho moun
tains and all nations (hall lbw unto
it. For tbete things we ought today
most l.earti y to g va thanks. And
when we come to our own country,
our teaions for thanksgiving are more
than we can telt. What a country !
How grand in hor position between
the two oceans; while she bathis her
feet in tbe warm wateisol tbe gulf and
lavos hor head in the cooler waters of
her northern lakes. How wondeiful
hor retouroi'B in climate. S .ll and the
varied productions tf (be earth,
how ticu in minoral resource, how
rapid thi growth ot manuf ictnros and
the facilities tor commerce and travel.
Bot better than all material wealth
and power Is tue s ability of our free
institutions, th securi y of civil and
religious liberty to every clt zen, the
enlargement ol educational privileges,
and tho ab ding power and tbe In
creasing iitUiouue of Chriet'aniiy in
the l,nd. Ibere is not onodenotuma
t on of evangelical Christians that is
not growing stronger from yeir to
year. There are) mauy imperfumio' s,
many things lo bo lamented and do
plori'd, but still there is a substantial
progvs of the G epnl, and for this we
slnnld ni 'st devoutly thank the Ixrrd.
But while expreasiog our fhsnki to
the Uivur of all g od tor these things
wemy bs reminded of tht labor
stria cs, and of the anarchist domon
strsttiius, and of th 67,000 votes caBt
in N.tw York City for Goore, the
communistic candid it for Mayor, and
we may bs naked ii these things do
not portend evil to our count y. I
think not. Ihe real tnarch sts er
but a handful, and they will bed at
with, we trust, ra law and j intlce de
mand. That the.laboreis of thee mn
try have rauee for complaint there can
be no doubt. Tbosa who are dnect
Ing their movements avow their in

and to reek tbe at'ainment of their
rights by legitimate means. The boy
cott and not tbe bayonet is ihe weapon
they propose to are. ihe torch of
truth aid not that of the incendiary la
the one which they propose to bear.
The effort to reconcile capital and
labor is npon us, and there will be no
reet until tbe solution has been at
tained. It is a matter of thanksgiving
that Christ anity gives na rulus by
which the problem may be solved.
The sermon on the mount, the
livlre philosophy of Jesus ol
Nacareth is a complete remedy for all
the social, civil and spiritual n-aladlos
that afflict our race. It may be that
Providence ia allowing these questions
to arise In oar country lor tne very
parpoce of directing the minds of all
men to the great Teacher, As it was
In ths olden time, when the wnrld by
lis own wisdom knew not God, it
pleased God by tbe foolishness ot
preaching to lave them tbat believe.
80 Irit now. A' other philosophies
and teachings fail, save tbat of Him
who laid down His life lor ns. Love
is the migbty solvent of all strifes and
conn cs. Let the rich and the poor
love one another, let them love mercy,
do justly and wa'k htimoly bef ire God,
and then it shall come about that not
all want and suffering and discontent
shall disappear, bnt we shall learn tn
bear eath other's burdeos, and so ful
fill the law of Chris". J he rich shall
not oppress the poor, and tbe poor
aha'l pot envy and retaliate npon tbe
rich. Toe ideal of the gospel will
then be reached In the fatheihood of
God and tbe brotherhood of man.
In conclusion, I need bat call your at
tention to tbe mora ebvlona bles log

today a country at peace with all the
