Jay Gould is dead ; and it is
sad to say, but true, that his death
gives general satisfaction, The old

good of the dead," has no place
here. lt is meant for . men in pri

man on earth. Outside his im

death. In all the newspapers we

praise of Jay Gould, There's none
so poor to do him reverei.ce;-New
If our esteemed contemporary |
had known that Jay Gould gave
$250,000 to the Cleveland campiagn

daughter $2,000 to be. approper

kissed his sons every night before
retiring even though they have
long since grown to man's estate,
perhaps he would not have said
these harsh things.
COTTON SEEl>FOR HORSES.
A writer in the Southern farm
has experimented with cotton seed
hulls as a food for horses, and
gives the following as his experien
ces and purposes :
Having found them such an. ex
cellent food for cattle and knowing
that cotton seed meal is being fed
to some extent to horses, I reasoned
th-Bt hulls ought also to be good
for horses. So I procured some
corn meal, and by mixing only a
very small quantity of cotton seed
meal,-succeeded in making them
eat it. The quantity of hulls and
meal was iucrased gradually until
each animal consumed about three
pounds of meal and considerable
The oil mills have started up
again and I will commence right
away to feed hulls and 'meal to my
horse stock. I never succeeded in
getting them to ,eat hulls and
meal without mixing with other
food, and do not know whether a
well fed animal can be made to do
so or not. I will feed it as largely
asl can. It will very much lessen
the expense of horse feeding. Eight
cents a day in hulls and meal will
keep a thousand pound work-ox
fat. We find horses and oxen in
their natural state eating the same
kinds of food. What difference
can oxist between the digestive
.-organs of the two animals, that
one can thrive on a food unsuited
to the other? I am sure that the
horses and mules that work the
cotton fields of the South will
eventually be fed largely on cotton
COTTON CROP AND PRICES.
Alford ShepperBon, the noted
cotton statistician, estimates the
cotton crop of 1S92 at 8,500,000
bales-this he considers the
maximum, and says these figures
may be reduced considerably. Of
the prices he speaks as follows :
"For two seasons very low prices |
have ruled, lower than most meuj
have ever seen. They were caused
by the pr?sure of the enormous]
stocks in the world,' resulting from
our two immense crops of 1890-91
and 1891-2. On Sept. 1 middling
upland cotton was worth here 71-8
c. On the 24th of September it
advanced to 7 5-8c" and continued
to advance until 10 cents was
reached November 25. There has
since been a recession of 1-4 cent
which was due largely to the pur
chases of futures by merchant and
capitalists as fair speculation.
They saw the price of the great
staple was lower than for a
generation, and probably below
the cost of production. They
realized that the growing crop
would be a short one, for the very
air was full of such indications,
and bought futures freely. Spot
cotton followed the advance iu
futures. Spiners contributed very
little to the advance. Our mills
hold large stocks of cotton, having
bought during the two previous
season considrable more cotton
than they consumed. They were
generally, therefore, in condition
to keep out of an advancing |
market, and did so.
To date they have taken from
the crop 330,000 bales less than
for the corresponding time last
season. Neither have European
spinners helped in creating the ad
vance. Speculations always anti
cipates results. The conditions
affecting values of staples are
discounted long in the advance.
Several months ago I had said
in a letter which got into print
that the crop would bo a short
one and when the public reached
the conclusion that it might not
exceed 8,000,000 bales they would
?>ot wait for the last bale to be
counted, but would put prices up
at once. Exactly this thing has
happened, American spinner and
European spinner who have to
buy ere long and purchases would
bxs a great support to the market."
REFUNDING THE DEBT.
The most1 important measure
that has been introduced during
the present session of the Legisla
ture is the hill for the refunding
of the State debt. This hill was
sent in by Gov. Tillman himself,
accompanied by a message, on last
Friday. The following ?B the
The refunding of the Brown
Consuls which fall due next July
is the most important question
with which the State government
has to deal at this time. As you
know, our predecessors in office
provided for the issue of 4 per
cent bonds tobe exchanged for 6
per cents., but up to the end of the
fiscal year, October 31st, only $33,
726 of the fours have been issued
under this act, and our efforts to
place the new bonds in New York
at a satisfactory price failed. It
is not hard to give the reasons for
this and show what acts of the
State government in the past, and
what men and intertests at this
time, are in combination to pre
vent the State placing her bonds
at that rate of interest. Suffice it
to say that it cannot be done and
we must meet the emergency that
has arisen by such action as will
maintain our credit and build it
up till South Carolina can borrow
money at as low rate of interest
as any of her sister States.
The State could have placed the
4 per cent, bonds at par in spite of
the errors of the past had her own
capitalists lent their aid. We can
place 4? without their help if the
General Assembly will provide a
singing fund with "which to begin
the gradual annual payment of the
debt and mortgage the phosphate
beds as collateral. .
After a careful consideration of
the matteG???iv?qon8ultat?Qn with
the State lV&a$ur?r- and the chair
man of the finance committee of
both houses, a bill has been pre
pared, which I submit herewith,
that will enablo us to meet our ob
ligations at maturity, and sb build
up our credit as to refund the debt
in twonty years at as low rate as
any State can obtain.
The practical result of this
scheme will be :
First. That the interest charges
to. be met annually will be, say
$80,000 less, but this sum will not
go to the reduction of taxes, but
nearly all of it to the payment and
reduction of the debt itself.
Second. That this will, in my
judgment, enable us in twenty
years to float a three or three and
a half bond, so that in the long run
the total amount saved will be
more than if we now placed a
forty-five year 4 per cent. bond.
As the bill itself will explain
the whole in detail, and the reasons
must appear to any intelligent
mind, I submit it to you without
further argument or comment, and
urge its passage as soon as possi
The first section of this bill
provides that the State Treasurer
shall cause to be prepared a suffi
ciency of bonds and certificates of
the denominations of $500 and
$1,000, bearing 4? per cent..inter

ent outstanding bonds which bear
6 per cent.
Section second provides that
these bonds and certificates "hall
become payable at the end of forty
years, but the State reserves the
right to call them in at the end
of twenty years.
Section third provides for the
cancellation of the old bonds when
Section fourth provides that the
coupons on the 4? per cent, issues
shall be receivable for taxes.
Section five provides that the
revenue of the State arising from

the amount of $37,500 shall semi
annually be set apart as a sinking
fund for the payment of said
bonds and certificates.

a synopsis here, has been reported
upon favorably by the committee
A Good Election Story.
The Philadelphia Times says.
One of the tersest and best of the
election stories is related by
Chairman Carter, of the national
committee. "It was getting rather
late in the evening of election day,
he said, and we were anxious to
hear something def?nate from one
of the most important districts of
Indiana, which had not reported
for several days. I telegraphed
over my own signature to the
leader of the district: "I have had
no news from you. Please let me
hear at once and report fully.
Send me 100 lines or so on tho
actual state of affairs." In about
an hoar 1 got his reply. It read;
"We have all gone to h?~l out
here, and it don'i take any hun
dred lines to tell it, either."
Posthumous Words From A Pet
It was diseovered on Wedneday
that the right hand of the petrified
man lately found at Chadron gras
! ped a small iron box, which was
removed by means of cold chisel
and pried open. In it was^found a
stange manuscript, apparently
faded, and it was was decipheared
only by long and patient effort. It
was writen in the old English style.
The following extract, reduced to
modern English, is but a small
portion of the document but it
gives an insight to the canses
leading to the death of the man :
'Only a few years I was considered
a sound and healthy man, and
believed myself to be one. But
one evil day my wife wrapped my
lunch in an old newspaper which
we had brought with us from
England, and at noon, while eating
I commenced reading an adver
tisement which stated that when
j one experenced ringing in the ears,
that tired feeling, dizziness,
distress after eating, shootinig
pains in the left lung, dimness of
vision, and palpitation of the
jlarnyx, it was a sign that the
subtle shafts of diseas had
attacked him, and that his only
hope of avoiding -an early grave
was by taking Dr. Hankum's Cold
Handled Pills according to the
directions on the box. Imagine my
grief and consternation I I had
experienced all those symptoms
and the crushing fact came home
to me that I would soon" be a
pallid corpse unless I secured
some of Dr. Hankum's Pills.
"But how was I to get them? I
was a poor man ; but my wife had
a few trinkets, heirlooms they
were, and so I rushed homo and
explained matters to her. She
would't believe that I was seriously
ill, but at last consented tc sell the
trinkets, and with the proceeds I
bough^ the pile. Of course I ceased
work : a sick man cannot toil and
we grew poorer and poorer, until
there was nothing to eat in the
house. I sold the house to buy
more pills and some of the doctor's
Extract of Red Elm, but I kept
growing worse, and my wife left
me and went to her parents, and
I finally became a physical wreck
with a craving for pills which
nothing oould appease. Now thst
I can purchase no more pills I am
about lo commit suicide, for life
without them is unedurable.
"Ah, mel Had I never read
that advertisment I might now be
well and strong with my loving
friends about me. Reader (if this
ever finds a reader), if there ie a
ringing in your ears, let her ring 1
If you have shooting pams in yonr

over that tired feeling or distress
after eating ! And beware of Dr.

The Jewish shekels were good for
taxes and tribute; the Roman
money was not. One was legal

them in the Temple for sale to the

TOPEKA, KAN, December 6.-It
had been proposed by ,the people
here to have'an inaugural ball
when Governor-elect Lewelling
was placed in office, but the Gov
ernor opposed it, and a mass
meeting oj Populists called to
decide upon the inaugural
ceremmoni^s adopted "these resolu
tions last night, :
Resolved. That the recent
political victory was won by, the
plain people of Kansas and ' was
a victory against mammon worship
in all its forms; was, in truth, but
one battle in the irrepressible
conflict between the people and all
that greed which finds its most
luring exponent in society, with its
ostentatious display of power to
spend money for trifles while those
who have earned it starve:
inaugural ceremonies carried on by
the fashionable society and under
its ostentation of dress and expense
would be exceedingly inappropriate
and highly distasteful to- all
friends of genuine social and'
political reform ; and, further.
Resolved That the people of
Kansas, who elected the new State
officers, cannot look but with
anxiety upon any indication that
the officers have submitted to the
allurements of that fashionable
society which represents all the
enemies of the common people
and based upon wealth gained by
monopoly constitute a dangerous
lobby about the officials it may
secure in its meshes ; therefore.
Resolved. That we'are opposed
lo any ball as a part of the cere
monies of inauguration.
