Webster defines a tonic as "a medi

whon tho flavor is pleasant to tho tasto, j
Such is tho tonic furnished TUK COU-|

havo to tako their own medicine, and
wore wo to proscribo for tho voiBatllo
editor of tho Nows at tho prcsont timo,
wo might lind a Bcdativo moro needful
than a tonio. Ho is brimful of energy,
pluok and perseverance, but thou ho has
entered upon a now and untried field,
and ho may find tho way both rooty and
stumpy. At this juncture it might bo
well to heed the advice once adminis
tered by ono of his admirers to an ablo
lawyor who had lately been olectod
judgo : "Don't set your coulter too
deop for now ground." Our brother
writes woll and makes a good paper.
Wo hopo it may bo a long timo boforo ho
needs a tonic, an occasional sedativo or
laxativo hoing taken as tho journalistic
machinery may need a regulator.

NORTH AND SOUTH.
On tho 80th of May, 1800, at. tho city
of Columbus, Ohio, to a connnittco
of tho (?. A. lt., a magnificent floral
tributo was tendered by tho Southerners
to bo placed on tho graves of tho Union
dead in (ricen Lawn comotery. This
tributo, in viow of tho declarations of
tho President in Atlanta and othor Sou
thern cities, v,as peculiarly appropriate.
The tender was made by OX-Confcdorato
soldiors who appreciated tho efforts
made to let tho dead past bury its dead
and to cement North and South again as
one united nation, lint the committee
of tho O. A. lt. declined tho tribute.
Thoro is said to bo great indignation
among the members of tho G. A. lt. over
this action of tho committee, but that
timo nor occasion has not been afforded
for tho momborahip to make their disap
proval felt. Wo have felt that all the bit
terness of tho past, incident to tho last,
war, had been buried. Ho wovor, if wo

MILES LEFT WITHOUT AUTHORITY.
(ion. Miles, in the name of tho Com
manding General of tho Army of ti.o
United States, has been forbiddon to is
Hiio any order directing tho movement
of a staff officer unless personally oignod
by Alger. Staff ofllcors have been told
to report directly to Alger and not to
Miles. Now tho Secretary is dissipating
tho General's personal staff to tho four
quarters of the continent, and the satire
of it all lies in tho fact that every order
is signed with MUo*' name.-Cleveland
Criticism of those in power has be
come of lato a dangerous proeoodtiro,
and especially to those holding positions
in tho United States. Con. Miks con
ceived it his duty to criticise tho Secre
tary of War for tho bad beef furnished
to tho soldiers in tho war with Spain.
Although much testimony was taken in
substantiation of tho fact that tho beef
was anything but what tho United Slates
ought to furnish her patriots who did
tho fighting, still Miles is condemned
and Alger is on top in tho controversy.

What wo wish to ?all attention to is
tho fact that it is not the mammoth in

and lifo of a peoplo and pay handsome

demand such largo amounts of oapital
stock to operate thom, and nan bo built
by small towns and owned and operated
by tho homo pooplo.
Walhalla is ono of tho best locations
in tho State for tho establishment of a
hardwood factory to make spokes, hubs,
fellies, handles, plowstocks. Sro., and
such a faotory can bo put on foot by our

EX-G0V. NORTHEN'S SPEECH.
Ex-Governor Northen has received tho
"BOSTON, MASS., May 2fl, 1800.
"Hon. W. .1. Northon, Atlanta, Ga.:
"Wo notico from published interviews
your statement that your speech in Bos

tho Heston papers, Tho Boston Post

Please wire answer.
"Hy E. A. Grozior, Editor."
Much lins beon written in tho South
pro and con about Northon's Massachu
setts speech. Wo of the South havo ar
rived at tho point whon wo proposo to
"toat" our own skillet and wo caro vory
little, what Northern politicians think of
us. Wo propose to do what wo doom
best for our own interest, and advance
ment and Northorn politicians may draw
their own conclusions.
AND OHIO, TOO.
Wo noto that in tho State of Ohio re
cently a burley brute, of Southern negro
proclivities, mado an assault upon a res
pectable white woman, and that somo
livo hundred enraged white mon woro
hot after his blood, and that it took a
strong guard to protect tho negro from
tho court of Judgo Lynch. Vorily, tho
determination to protect tho virtuo of
our decent womon is not conflnod to tho
South. Tho editors of tho South havo
recently been preaching that lynch law
had not proved successful iii chocking
thc committal of tho brutal, unuamable
crime. It scorns, also, that all tho cen
sure visited by tho press on tho hoads of
thoso who wreak swift vongoanco on tho
criminal has also failed to confino Judgo
Lynch's court to tho Southern pooplo.
rho press of tho South as wol) as that of
tho North have carried thoir criticisms to
ii disgusting extent; so much so, that in
thoir severo cousuro of lynchers they
have forgotten ti condemn tho orimo
which callB for swift punishment. Thoir
condemnation baa and will fail to check
tho mob, as they denominate it, until
there is a means of swift punishment do
vlsi to lake tho placo ot lynching, and
that, too, without humiliating our ino
ilest ladies by an appearance in public to
testify on such outrageous chargCH.
Thc writers, both South and North, may
howl against lynchings, hut they will pro
ceed all tho same as long as brutes com
mit tho crime calling for lynchings. Wo
suggest that tho teachings of editors
might be moro elToetivo should their pons
ho wielded awhile against that detesta
ble crime So little has been written
against tho crimo that many have almost
overlooked tho fact that a most hoinous
ono had boon committed boforo thoro
was any lynching. Lotus turn looso tho

Tho Michigan Stato industrial Behool
for girls ls being investigated by a legis
lativo committee and BOH?O of tho wit
nesses toll harrowing taloh of tho nioBt
dreadful cruelty practicod upon tho Btu
donts by tho toachors. AB roportcd in
tho Chicago Record, ono of tho pupils,
Ar.iiabolla Echtinaw, was given a hot
bath,, tho wntor hoing heated from a
Btcol coil in tho bottom of tho tub. Ono
of tho toachors, M?SB Oaks, who was
present, described it as follows:
Tho girl cried out: "Aro you going to
scald mo?" Sho was hold th twenty
minutes and on coming out becamo un
conscious and died in twonty minutes.
Miss Oaks said hot baths wore a method
of punishment. Sho also testified to
holding a girl's hands while Mrs. SicklcB
gave bor twenty-fivo or thirty blows
with rubber tubing split into piocos.
Sho had alBo scon girls' mouths covered
with courtplnstor for answering back.
Ono of tho pupils testified that she had
boon strippod and given thirty-six lashes
with a rubber hose as a punishment for
a remark about ono of tho toachors. Sho
was black and blue for a month. Tho
"Mrs. Helen M. Babcock, a former
housekeeper nt tho school, testified that
tho boatings tho girls got woro sicken
ing. Ono instance sho spoko of was that
of Rcssio Force, who had boon imperti
nent, Mrs. Sickles toro off hor clothos
and gave her thirty blows af tor sho had
boon in a solitary cell." Mrs. Babcock
cont in nod :
" 'Why don't you cry?' said Mrs. Sick
los, when she finished. Resido was as
white as a shoot ami trembling. She
said: 'I can't cry, Mrs Sickles.' 'You'll
cry or I'll kill you. Take off your
clothes,' said Mrs. Sicklos. Bessie took
ort her eloUics. Mrs. Sickles went Into
Another room and got. a trunk strap au
inch and a quarter wddo. She made Bes
sie Ho aoroaa a sofa thoro in tho ofilco
and gavo her, vory deliberately, about
ton blows on tho naked limbs. I could
not bear thc spectacle, so I stood at n
window and looked out. Bessio WSB
screaming: 'Oh, Mrs. Sickles, don't kill
mel don't kill nie?' "
All'of this occurred in a Stato collcgo
for girls in Michigan. As an evidencoof
barbarity it is pretty conclusivo, but no
ono will bo BO foolish as to bcliovo on
that account that Michigan is not civil
ized, although tho occurrences certainly
clo not speak well for that State.
It would seem that thoro is a lino fiold
for Mrs. Homo and hor Boston co-labor
ers who havo worked themselves up to
such a pi tell over Southern barbarism.
Ono of their own sox is accused of scald
ing a tender young girl to death, which,

They aro largoly actuated by a desire for
