McKinley gave you a starter by ap
pointing a negro over a white com

took the back track. It was just such
? case as you have now in Mississippi
at Indianola, for the people at Hogans
ville went 1 milo to get their mail
rather than take it from a negro-a
dirty politican." Teddy has done no
florae on the postoffi.ee line. The
postoffices are the people's not the
president's. They aro almost as near
to as and as sacred as is our preacher
or our family physician. No greater
insult, no greater outrage upon our
rights, could bo perpetrated by a
tyrant than to appoint a negro as post
master in a white community. The
difference between Teddy and Mr.
McKinley is that the latter played
fool for a while and quit, but Teddy
keeps it np and grows more defiant of
southern opinion and southern indig
nation. Sometimes providence afflicts

Think of Henry Ward Beecher oreaoh

were better than Bibles to convert
the slave owners of the South, and so
his people bought tho rifles and tho
ammunition and told John Brown to
go ahead. But the niggers were loyal
to their masters and wouldn't burn
nor kill nor destroy. And hence Lew
Wallace and Adams and many others

sent me the "Princess of Glendale,"
and I reluctantly took a glanoe at the
first page and got caught. I turned
the leaf and read on and had devoured
one hundred pages before breakfast
and all of it during the day. It is a
faithful and charming recital of south

with its distresses, and Forrest with
three hundred men pursues .Straot

as a heroine in guiding Forrest across

Richmond has lately suffered at the

not avoid an allusion to the local

there are about!" he said: "why don't
you constables arrest them?" The

A Milk Epidemic
Of the typhoid epidemics traced
to milk one of tho most typical was
that at Springfield, Mas3., where in
July and August of 1892 150 cases
occurred concentrated in one of the
most beautiful suburban districts of
that city. The investigation by Pro
fessor W. T. Sedgwick showed that
the path of the pestilence was coin
cident with tho route of a certain
milkman. It was next found that a
portion of his product came from a
farm where several cases of typhoid
fever had occurred during tho pre
ceding summer. Shortly before tho
outbreak of tho epidemic the dis
charges from tho patients wero
spread upon a tobacco field. Manure
from this field carried-on the boots
of the farmhands was* obvious ^about
and in a well near by. On-tho bottom
of this well and submorgAd in leaky
cans stood the milk to-bo cooled'be

'~~ HOME OF THE MOLE.
8?ne of the Peculiarities of This Odd
Tho home of the mole, if not Mug j
else,.would provo that it is not tho j
dull creature most people imagine it |
to bc. Viewing it from tho outside, [
this home would appear to lie oniv
o hillock of firm and well trodden
earth, but if it were possible for you
to pay t ie molo a visit you would be
greatly surprised at what you would
find under the mound of earth-a
6nug, leaf lined sleeping chamber in
thc very heart of the hillock, two
galleries, ono near thc top, another
near the bottom, connected with
each other and with the main high
road and tho "runs" which radiate
from it in every direction by pas
sages of various lengths.
Ic would all be very bewildering
to you, but to thc little builder it is
all plain-every passage, where it
begins and where it leads. And if by
chance it hp surprised in its nest it
can withdraw into the central cham
ber and reach the highroad at once.
The mole is said to be a very thirsty
animal, and if its home be not near
a stream of water it digs a number
of little pits or wells along its "run"
to catch the rain or dew.
A mole's eyes are very small (lar
ger ones would bc useless under
ground), but when it requires to use
them it can bring them forth very
quickly from the mass of fur which
protects them. Thc quick car, thc
acute sense of smoll and the delicate
sense of touch seem to serve tho an
imal in its dark journeys through
the earth instead of sight, and it is
by means of theso senses that it se
cures its food and escapes its foes.
The most extraordinary thing
about a mole is the paw or hand
with which it digs. Thc two fore
paws are very large and are fur
nished with strong flattened nails.
The hands are turned outward to
enable thc animal to throw tho
earth out of its way. Another curi
ous part of the mole is its fur, and
no matter how damp and slimy tho
mold through which the animal bur
row's the fur remains perfectly
clean and velvety. That is because
it has no "grain," but lies smooth in
every direction. The short hairs
grow perpendicular from the skin
and are capable of turning with ev
ery direction of the animal.
Food For Toy Dogs.
Most people overfeed toy dogs,
and the result is a fat, unhealthy
looking specimen, with a foul breath
and rough, staring coat. Some food
is supposed to be better than others
in the growing of coats. My experi
ence has been that there is nothing
so good for toy dogs as a judicious
mixtvre of finely cut up boiled meat
-beef or lamb necks are the cheap
est and answer tho purposo admira
bly-soared bread from which the
yeast has been squeezed out, boiled
vegetables, such as potatoes, carrots,
spinach, beans, etc., and occasional
ly rice, barley and oatmeal. To this
siiould be added the soup in which'
the meat has been boiled, the mix
ture when finished being sufficiently
firm to take out in a spoon without
spilling. Once a day is sufficient for
the average toy dog, but for this
there is no cut and dried rule, an
active dog of a nervous tempera

A WORD TO FARM TOILERS.
The Home Friend of the
Farmer and His Family.
After the labors arni toils of thc summer time,
and harvesting of crops in thc early autumn,
many of our farmer*, their wives, daughters,
and sons, find themselves in a condition of
health demanding careful attention if suffering
is to be avoided later on. Many experience
kidney trouble in some form; with some the
liver is torpid; there is biliousness, nausea, and
vomiting, with loss of apatite and depression
of spirits. Thousands who have l>cen exposit
to cold, damp winds ami rains while toiling in
the harvest fields, now feel thc twinges of
terrible rheumatism; others run down by
worry, overwork, and irregular dieting, are
tormented with the pangs of dyspepsia.
To the thousands of run down, sickly, and
half dead men and women in farm homes we
recommend with all honesty and confidence
the worker's friend, Taine's Celery Compound,
the only medicine that can quickly and fully
restore strength to tho weak body and vigor to
the muscles. Taine's Celery Compound tones
the stomach; it removes poisonous acids from
the blood which cause ihcumatism; it feeds
the weak and diseased nerves and banishes
neuralgic tortures; it purifies the blood and
gives true vitality and hie. The usc of Taine's
Celery Compound in uJtumn means thc estab
lishing of a perfect physical vigor to withstand
thc rigors of a severe winter.

Bodily Health and Mental Condition
Are Both Benefited by lt.
Some of the sunniest dispositions,
are those of. confirmed invalids who.
have the strength of will to ignore,
their own sufferings in order not to
cast a gloom over their family and
friends. So that it is not so much a
condition of bodily health as of
moral, and we cannot doubt that the
physical condition is largely influ-.
enced by tho prevailing state of our
mind. It is not only that "a merry
heart makcth a cheerful counte
nance," but it also helps to make a
healthy body, for we are told by the
same authority, "A merry heart do
eth good like a medicine."
Tho correctness of ibis latter
statement is seen in thc fact that it
is much easier for a person to recov
er from an attack of illness if he ia
cheerful and hopeful than when ho
is cither indifferent as to Iiis recov
