What Kesulikplitn MeaNS.
The farmers of Stth -arolina, and
the townsfolk too. do nit aiwavs rea
lize what resuiption mezaan. They
see that the prio of whair :hey have
to sell goes steadily down, and that in
wages for daily work there is a decline.
But they do not always pause to note
the rehtive differenee, as it can be
seen in the following quotations fo.
the New Year's days of 1878 and
187 9 1878.

YORKz Sux-Sir: I wish to know
what is the character of P-rof. Graham
Bell, the alleged inventor of the tele
phone, and what he is doing with that
invention. In November, 1875, I
sent a letter containing drawings and
descriptions in full of a similar ar
rangement to the Electro-Magnetic

street, New York-Post Office box
,278-H. Van Hoevenburg. superin
tendent. This letter is said by the
above to have been "lost in the mails."
Bel's first name for his instrum.eut
was "Electric Speaking Trumpet."
The same was used in my letter. The
instrument at the sending office was
precisely my design, so far as I can
learn ; but I think his instrument at
the receiving offiee was different. I
don't think that I will enter suit
against Prof. Bell, though I lack but
ittle of having evidence sufficient to
justify a suit. I lack mneans to put
other, I think valuable, inventions
before the public. I don't want
mony but a man of practical skill to
take "hold of and deal honestly both
with mnyself anid the public. A sound
