' Sequence, the rxcrp'ional suffrrlcg
and poverty should elicit (xctptibial
contributions for tbe relief of the poor
and needy. Liberal as Memphis bra
always been in giving whenever an ap
peal bai been made to the sympathies
of her -people, there never baa been
time when contributions could be so
' judlclomly invested as in snppirtof
the charity balL Tbe oroceeda will be

' Many ot tbe moat chaiitablo have no
sympathy with indiscriminate charity
because it encourages professional btg-
: gars and aids those who sre able to
work bat will not Bat tbe pro-
teeds of the propoted charity
ba'l will be distributed among tbe
deserving poor. Tbe committee will
Investigate the character aud history
of every applicant, aud impostors will
be given bo part of tbe fund intended
solely for tbe deserving poor. Thus
assured tlat tbe money rafced by the
eharity ball will be distributed among
the deserving poor, tbe enterprise
should receive the cardial support of
the entire community. As a Christ
lan people, we should make sacrifices
as we did twelve months m, o, for the
relief of suffering humanity. Charity
is the beacon light the proudest
monument to (he civilisation of tbe
age. The last charity ball was a grand
success, snd it is hoped that its repeti
tion will show that the fountain ot
chnrity, instead of being dried up, the
spring t.f humanity and tympaiby
that supplies it is gradually becoming
wider and s'ronger and deeper.
OS BAT CAT Of ALL
In 1880 there were 17,302,000 per
tons engaged in various occupations
in the United States. Of this number,
7,9G0,OCO were engaged in agriculture,
4,000,000 in professional and personal
occupations, 3,800,000 in manafsctur
log, meehanlcal labor and mining, 1,
MO,0M in trade and transportation.
It will be seen that there are nearly
as many people engaged in agriculture
as all other Industries combined.
Alter all, agriculture is tbe basla of
prosperity. Every Industry is pros
perous when tbe farmer prospers, and
languishes when he is unfortunate.
It is a singular fact that this greatest
of all Industries never asks fur protec
tion and receives lets than any other
occupation. Tbe 3,800.000 people en
gaged in manufacturing demacd a
tariff to protect them at the expense
oi ail other interests, but tbe 7,600,000
people ( engaged . in - agrloulture
neither abk nor expect protection.
The great agricultural Interests of tbe
country bava been too long made
"beweia of wood and drawers of wa
ter" to the protected monopolies of
the country. In view of the meegor
profile realised frc m the cn'tivatlon of
tbe soil, and tbe support that industry
. . tnrnlsbea to all others, it should be
fostered and eneouraged wit bout tax
ing other industries. From the soil
I ' ome our food and our raiment. The
shoe that protects the foot, the gar
ment of wool, linen or cotton, and
even the luxurious silk, all txUtsd
nee in the elements of tbe soil.
Farming and the rearing of fl cks and
herds were tbe earliest occupations of
the race, as its physical wants, food
and shelter, began with tbe first
breath drawn by a human being. The
. government which proceeds in dlt-re-'
gard of agriculture, goes against the
life of the people. Tbe tillers of the
oil need more attention than com
merce aad banks, beoanse npon what
they produce commerce and finance
-depend. If the soil fall to pro
duo through delivery - of its
tillers to any form oi oppres
sion or hindrance, circulation
cease in the arteries of commerce
and they collapse and the heart of
trade pulsates no longer. It is obvi
ous folly then ti devote all our atten
tion to the results of this industry,
wnite we give over to those who toll
in it to tbe submergence of their seres
and the del. at of their hard work
Tbe farmers of several States have or
ganised to induce Confrere to estab
lish an agricultural bureau, to be pre
aided over, by a Cabinet official. The
greatest,, of all Industrie! should b
,i represented In the Cabinet Such an
. officer wonld be usVul in a variety of

THE WAITED E.IBBABV.
With great satisfaction we invite at
tention to a communication ia another
column from one of the mott popular
ladle in Memphis. We want a place
Where onr people can spend their
evenings agreeably out of the reach of
vice. We beg to call to mind, In con
nection with the library suggested,
that several years ago, with a liberal
ity honorable to them and their order,
the OJd Fellows opened a library
which was made free to residents and
visitors of tha city. We think, from
the genenus liberality the Odd Fel
lows have shown, that arrangements
m'ght prib)b)ybs male that would
at once start the wanted library and
econooils) J (a expenses. If so, the
iof tl Otion could with very litt'e delay
begin its good work. It has been our
lot to have had Imported U us, at
various times, sad experiences that
confirm all our rs-pected correspond
ent o eloquently urge. Young
men whose employment ha bronght
them to Memphis, have told
n ' that, ' innocent . of vice
and full of good resolu
tions, they had left their home.
Having no acquaintance, when
wearied with the day's toil they re
quired some distraotlon from the mill
ronnd of work; they hid only the
street and the solitude of their room.
Spite of resolutions and earnest pray
er, that wearying, monotonous even
ing loneliness became intolerable. The
only alternative from it Memphis pro
vided bad left tbem with shattered
health, poverty and a hrart torn and
heavy with remorse. Every woman
in Memphla wbo has a on, a brother,
Or a lover, should strive earnestly to
aid in providius: Memphis with a
library 'a i a help to save their loved
ones frorn vice and the cankering,
aelf-upbralding woe that follows it.

THE MEMiVlS POOR.
A Well Tinaed Appeal la Their Be.
To tha Editors of tha Appeal
Ye men of iron, ye men ot cottoD,
ye railway men and merchants ho
make your money in Memphis and
through Memphis, think at this bitter
time of Mempbia's poor. We who are
welt fed, well c'othed, well boused,
feel not the biting blast, the penetrat
,ngsoo, the gnawing pangs ol hun
ger. We can uo less, I hope, sympa
thise with onr leu fortunate fellow
citiurg, and "for sweet charity's
sake," will feel constrained to
do all in odr- power to 'alleviate
their distreee. We should not wait
uq til the suffering has become pro
nounced, bnt by timely aid forestall
disaster "bis dat qui cito dak" and
never was that idea better applied
than in tbe present instance.
What tbe poor want is very little,
but that little must be ready when re
quired some oal, tome warm cloth
ing and, wben well applied, a little
ready money. I notice that a
cbanty ball has been pro
posed, than which, I think, there
can be no better means for quickly ac
qu:ripg the necessary fands. Mr.
Peter Tracy's name has also been men
tioned in connection with the arrange
ments for this ball. Where can we
got a better man for the purpose f He
wa I unde stand, the originator of
laet year's charity ball, in which our
lamented fellow citisen, Mr. H. Fura
tenheim, took such a lively
interest. Mr. Furstenheim'a heart
and purse ware ever - open
to the call of melting ooarity,
but be,alasl for Mempbia's poor, is no
longer among us. Wbo can supply his
place T Let ua ask Mr. Tracy; be
is a whole sou led, philanthropic, en
ergetic man, and if anyone caa bring
this idea to a successful issue he is the
individual. Like all good men and
true, he doubtless reads your valuable
paper, and possibly may see this let
ter, wh'cb I hope you will kindly in
sert. Yon will surely spar a corner
for "onr poor." , otAg,
