The Advance in Cotton.
We take the liberty of publishing
the following private letter from
Mr. Alfred B. Shepperson not only
because every word of it is true
but because the planters of the
south should not plant cotton next
year to the neglect of necessary
grain and food crops. What Mr.
Shepperson said last year should
be repeated in the hearing of every
southern planter, "None but
lunatics would go on planting full
crops of cotton and run the risk of
again selling it below cost of
production, to the neglect of food
crops which t'iey would not have
the money to buy in the event of
another big cotton yield next year
and low prices." Southern plan
ters have their fortunes and their
prosperity in their own hands. If
they'plant wheat, corn, oats, hay
and garden crops that can be
raised in abundance, they and not
the spinners can dictate the price
The short crop of this year
shows conclusively that the price
of cotton is to a large extent
controlled by the supply, and
Mr. Shepperson wrote line upon
line and numerous letters to prove
that the present crop was short.
He fitly urged a curtailment of
acreage and when he was satisfied
that this had been effected through
out the south, he published in the
East and in Europe the news of
the short crop. He did more than
any other man to disseminate the
news and convince the cotton con
suming world that the crop was
short in order to put up prices
while cotton was in the hands of
the planter. This was with him a
labor ot love. He is entitled to
the lasting gratitude of our people
for his unselfish, and patriotic
labors to help the southern farmers
out of their financial distress,
brought about in the main by the
low price of cotton.
The Chronicle has the satisfac
tion of having worked in the same
good cause and of knowing that its
labors haye not been in vain.
THE DYING YEAR.
Reflections of a|Country Editor
Upon Its Closing Hours. .
Another number has been added
to the lengthening list of the. y ear s
that were. Before this paper greets
its readers again the year, eighteen
hundred and ninety-two will be
but a memory. As one sits gazing
into the firelight's cheerful glow,
while listening to the mournful
wail of the wintry wind on a dark
cheerless December night, and
think? of the vanishing years,
memories crowd npou him thick
It will soon be gone. Gone for
ever, - never to be recalled. The
deeds that are recorded on its
pages can never bo altered. The
lost opportunities are ours no
more. The omissions of duty can
never be supplied.
What has the old year brought
us? It has given birth to many a
hope-hopes born only to die.
Many a heart has been filled with
noble aspirations-that have
withered and died under the
blighting influences of sore dis
appointments. In many a soul the
old year dawned in brightness, but
is going out in darkness. Many
who were with us a few year ago
are absent now. Chairs are vacant,
loving voices and the patter of
tiny feet are heard no more. Plans
and expectations have failed, but
perhaps the saddest thought of all
is the memory of duties unful
The year 1892 has indeed been
full of change. Events which will
perhaps change the destiny of this
State and nation have transpired.
Many of our people have been
traveling a weary road with the
sharp rocks of adversity and mis
fortune cutting their feet at every
step. Yet, as a people we have
been blessed. The white-winged
angel of peace , has hovered over
and protected us. We have been
visited by neither pestilence nor
famine. The dark clouds of sorrow
that hung over many a heart a
year ago have rolled away, and
once more the bright sunlight of
hope, happiness and inspiration
We stand now upon the threshold
of another year. We turu our backs
to the past and face the future.
What will it bring us? No man
can tell. To some it looks bright
and cheerful. As others book for
ward they see not a single ray of
light shiningacrqsatheir darkened
pathway. What has the New Year
in store for us? For some, blighted
hopes and withered anticipations.
For others, the full fruition of joy
and peace. ?
What shall we do then? Go
forward with a firm resolve. Let
us remember that to most of us
the coming year will be what we
make it. Remember there is a
great head and soul to this uni
verse, and that we can trust. them
both. Let us move on without fear
but with faith in God unshaken.
Is life worth living? Yes, if only
for the duty that is in it. Let us
make full use of our opportunities,
take up the duties of every hour
as they arise, trusting in God for
strengh to perform them-duties
to ourselves, to our fellow men
and to God. Do this, and at the
closeof anothei vear it will be well
with us. We will have peace of
mind and happiness of soul.
Worry not about results. Duty
alone is ours; results belong to
Abraham Lincoen As A Poet.
"I noticed some time ago an
article in the Globe-Democrat in
regard to some doggerel rhyme
written by Lincoen when he was
a boy,,' said Maj. Crabshaw toa
Louis Globe-Democrat* man. "I
knew Lincoen very well in his
flatboating days. He was always
writing doggerel, and his acquain
tances supposed,, he would ulti
mately go for a poet,' as Will
Carleton would say. I remember
once spending an evening at the
house of a farmer in Sangamon
county named Hicks. 'Old Man
Hicks,' as he was called, had three
or four buxom daughters, the
future president was a great
favorite with them. He came in
duridg the evening,, accompanied
by two other young men almost
as ungainly as himself. We had
apples and cider gingerbread and
honey. 'Now,' said old man Hicks,'
'if we had a fiddle wo could have
a dance,' Abe suggested that one
of the girls might furnish the
music by whistling, but this did
not meet with her approval. Pretty
soon we missed Abe r.s they all
called him. In a few minutes he
returned with two big cornstalks.
Everybody was on the quivivc, but
not a word could they get out of
Abe. He sat down by the fireplace,
took out his jack knife and went
to work. In ten minutes he had
a cornstalk fiddle constructed and
he called out: 'Choose your
partners. We were soon on the
floor, and Abe played the sqeaky
instrument and sang while we
danced. He sang whatever chanced
to come into his mind, improvis
ing a number of verses of a
personal character, much to the
amusement of the party. One
verso I remember was this :
.'There's a life ou the ocean wave,
And a home on the rolling deep,
"Where the pollywogs wiggle their
And the tears roll down my cheek." j
"Old man Hicks beat time on
the hearthstone wi*h the tongs,
and we had a really delightful
dance. After it was over old man
Hicks called out. Them as
dances must pay the fiddler. Gals
you all owes Abe a kiss.' Abe
dropped his fiddle as though it
had become suddenly hot, crossed
his legs, put his bow on his knee
his chin in his hand, and drawled
out : Mr. Hicks, what did I ever
do to you.' "
The Farmer Takes a Hand.
Senator Peffer, in a volume
called The Farmers' Side, His
Tronbles and Their Remedy,
present grievances made prominent
in recent years by the Grange, the
Farmers' Alliance, and kindred
bodies of western and southern
agriculturists. In spite of the
enormous productiveness of agri
cultural lands, of improved
machinery, better transportation,
and tue successive failure of crops
in other lands, the American
farmer has le.-.s actual earning
capacity than men of any other
calling. Upon this assumption,
Mr. Peffer proceeds to find the
cause of this inequlaity in what he
call s the Money Power. Rates of
interest, he claims, are usurious,
and the fact that idle money can
reproduce itself in a comparitively
short period of time is all wrong.
Some idea of his economic ideas
may be formed from the following :
"If it be right to exact money un
der any circumstances for the use
of money, and if it be right to
regulate th? rate of interest by law
surely justice requires that no
greater percentage should be
allowed or demanded than is
equal to the average gain of labor.
If the workiog forces of the county,
when all employed, der not gain
faster than a certain rate per cent
per annum, that rata, whatover it
be-if any rate is to be allowed
should be the Ipgalrate for the UBe
of money. If the people, when all
are working, gain steadily ten per
cent every year, then let ten per
cent be the interest rate; if the
general gain of the workers does
not exceed five per cent that rate
is highjenpugh for interest\- if the
community, the State, or the na
tion do not gain faster than two
per cent or three per cent, no more
than that ought to be allowed aB
interest for the use of 'money."
The rate of interst, he maintains,
should be proportioned to the rate
of increase in the property of a
State or locality. For example :
"The property of the State of New
York in 1835 was valued at $530,
653,524, and the increase in twenty
four years was $885,637,313, or for
the whole period an average of not
quite 7 per cent per annum ; and
added yearly, of about 4 per cent
annum. At 7 per cent with the in
terest compounded yearly, the State
would have added to its wealth
during the twenty-four years over
$12,100,000,000-that is, over $1,
200,000,000 more than was actually
added to the wealth of the State
by the labor of all its .inhabitants.
The legal rate of interest demanded
from laborers over $1,200,000,000
more than they actually earned."
It is thus, he avers, that the farmer
to-day is paying a ten-per-cent
interest on a two-per-cent business,
a businees, a state of affairs which
is ruinous to his interests.
It appears that the most popular
and widely-read novel writer of
the day is Albert Ross, who haB
sold 540,000 copie* of his seven or
eight novels. According to Englis h
authority, this novel is not the only
book, however, which sella in such
enormous quantities, and a time is
recalled in London, only a few
years ago, when copies of the Koran
were as eagerly sought for as the
hovel to-day. It is difficult at all
times to say who it is that reads
so much, but a writer has recently
analyzed the question about Mr.
Ross, and has decided that his
novels are only seen in the hands
of shop-girls, errand boys,
mechanics, and sewing women.
From this, the writer argues, we
can form some idea of what is the
"literature of the mass." "Those
who for their sins," he remarks,
"have read the latest novel of the
writer in question-The Garston
Bigamy-need be at no loss in
determining the Beeret of his suc
cess. In the first place, he has a
simple and direct style. He indul
ges in very little fine writing.
Some passages of sentiment are
done in a way to make one shriek,
but, for the most part, the story
moves straight on.

"Seeing is Believing
And a good lamp
must be simple; when it is not simple it is
i not good. Simple, Beautiful, Good-these1
I words mean much, but to see "The Rochester"
will impress the truth more forcibly. All metal,
tough and seamless, and made in three pieces only,
it is absolutely safe and unbreakable. Like Aladdin's
of old, it is indeed a "wonderful lamp," for its mar
velous light is purer and brighter than gas light,
softer than electric light and more cheerful than either.
Look for thia stamp-THB ROCHESTER. If the lampdealer hasn't the genuine
Rochester, and the stvle you want, send to us for our new illustrated catalogue,
kand we will send you a lamp safely by exoress-your choice- oi over 2,000
