Tho mine shaft and tho hold;
Toiling slaves of moneyed greed

The lille horders that fret
And chant in fitful measure
For help that comes nor yet,
Side hy side with luxury
Of gorgeous pageantry
The blanched face of poultry
On every hand ye seo.

Toko up tho White Slave's burden -
Go, see the grimy hordes
Of densely crowded cities
Jostling corporate lords.
The almshouse and the palace
And Mammon's temple high,
Thc gulf twixt Dives and Laz'rus
Yo see with callous eye!
Take up the White Slave's burdon

Through hills and valleys ring.
Tyrant days of pomp and greed
Are como to chain men's hands,
The feminines of Mammon
Increase the pauper bands!
Take up thc White Slave's burden
Thy victom's cry is loud,
Go search your sordid conscience;

Tho poor mali and the rich mau

on seo n seil in Iiis easy chair, he
would road indifferently of the
vast increasing army of tho
unemployed or would peruso the
details of the desperate deed of some
unfortunate suicide. Hut his heart
remained untouched with pity. I IIB
feelings were rather those of incred
ulous horror. These ghastly results
of our system of civilization scorned
so alien to the spirit of his happy
homo that his imagination failed to
recognize tho cruelly of tho condi
tions that hied them.
So the family drifted contentedly
along on the calm current of pros
perity and no whisper of a darker
destiny troubled their peaco of mind.
It was a bright day in early Oc
tober that marked the beginning of
a great chango in their lives. When

later when tho babies are asleep."
Ile tried to reassure her with a
smile as James, junior, proving the
truth of thc adage about little pitch
ers, protested loudly against the
stigma of being termed a baby.
Mrs. Davis was uneasily conscious
of some threatening disaster. When
she found time to join lier gloomy

"We are treated liberally," replied
.lames, "a year's salary to each one
and recommendations that ought to
secure other situations for us."
After the first effect of tin; news
passed away thc couple became rec
onciled to the situation. Mary pos
sessed no doubt as to her husband's
ability to procure a paying position.
She was childly concerned because
of the rude breach in old and valued
associations. She mourned over the
breaking of tender ties of friendship,
many of which had to be severed
amid the inevitable changes.

When tho second winter made its
unwelcome appearance Mary Davis
had become the breadwinner of the
family by doing such sewing as she
could find to do. Their stock of
money was lessening fast, and even
this scanty addition to their income
was welcome. Later, when it be
came necessary for the boys, who
had been gently nurtured, to also
assume their share of the burden of
support, it broke their father's heart.
Ile had never felt any sympathy for
the newsboys from whose half frozen
finget s ho had callously taken so
many times in past winters his daily
papers. Hut now at last he recog

Tho message was delivered by

that thc powers should not advance

To this inquiry tho following re

"Goodonow, Consul General,
"I do not think it expedient to
submit tho proposition of Karl Li to

Since thc Chinese government ad
mits that it possesses the power to

Negotiations are advisable until tho
Chinese government shall have put

that they will not support him.
Dr. Wyoho was the first speaker.
He made a capital speech and was
listened to attentively by tho crowd.
Ile began by saying he favored ro
tation in office, claiming it to bo tho
slogan of tile reform movement in

it worked to the interest of tho
American manufacturer aud against
tlie laboring class of people who
have to pay thc large per cent placed
on goods, lie claimed that tho only
chance for tho South to prosper was
by the fostering of manufacturing
enterprises. That tho South is
naturally adapted to this as it lias
tiie climate, tlie material and tho
labor and that by welcoming these
enterprises it would open up a mar
ket for the farm products. Ile is
against tho trusts and would uso

tho paramount reason for electing
any one to oflioo. That it was not
tho position a man took, but his rea
sons for doing so that should bo
considered, lie was opposed to freo
silver and gave his reasons for his
position. He made a very sensible
talk on tliis issue and challenged his
opponents to show Wherein he was
mistaken. Ho claimed that if this
was made a law, and he saw no
chance of it ever becoming such,
that it would raise the price of com
modities and would give us a cheap
money and in the end tho farmer
would bo in HO better condition.
That tho price of cotton is made in
Liverpool under the gold standard,
hence, if free silver was adopted in
thc country tho poor farmer would
pay more for his goods and get no
more for his cotton. He criticised
tho free rural delivery and made tho
assertion (hat it would cost fc'JO per
family to have the mail delivery and
while it would riot be a di root tax on
tho people, that it would bo an indi

tho people were familiar with II?B

that ho had been faithful to tho
trust imposed on him by thc voters
of the Third District, and if elected
ho would continue to serve them as
ho thought best for their interest.
