A SHOCKING ACCIDENT.-Mrs. Susan
B. Stokes, who was living at the resi?
dence of her son, John H. Stokes, Esq.,
near Lunenburg Court House, met with
a most deplorable fate last Sunday week.
One of ber grand-danghters left her up
stairs, sitting up in a chair before the
fire, and went down to dinner. Some
hours afterwards, the scent of something
burning attracted the attention of a
member of the family, and on ascending
the stairs to her room, imagine the inde?
scribable horror in finding all her hair
and clothes burnt off, and tho chair in
whioh she was sitting badly burnt. Dr.
Henry May was immediately summoned
to her assistance, but arrived only in
time to see her breathe her last. Mrs.
Stokes was about eighty years of age,
had been paralyzed for some time, and
was partially deaf and dumb; hence her
inability to signal her situation.

TUE RATE OF INTEHEST-THE STORM
SIGNAL-Tho Boston Traveller presents
some sober thoughts on the prevailing
> high rate of interest-the rate of ten to
twelve per cent, being uniform through?
out the country, tho great money centres,
Boston and New York, alono excepted.
This journal says: "The gradually in?
creasing rate of interest should make
people wary of borrowing money for
speculative purposes, and especially of
hiring it for the purchase of unproduc?
tive property, or in the expectation of
obtaining permanently high rents. It
is tho high rate of interest which evory
feT years causes a general breaking up
of business, when property aud products
fall in prioe. This also it is which causes
wealth gradually but steadily to concen?
trate into the hands of comparatively a
few persons in the community. Take
any series of ten, twenty or thirty years,
or moro, and the longer tho series,
the moro positive and conclusive be?
comes the evidence of the fact, and it
will be seen that the most profitable
business in the world is tho lending of
money. Tho high rate of money, high
taxes and high rents must, in the course
of a few years, tend to such a concentra?
tion of wealth us cannot fail to be inju?
rious to society, and will ultimately so
straiten the debtor classes as to necessi?
tate to a very great extent tho process of
wiping out old accounts and beginning
In our own section, tho rate of inte?
rest is such that no mau eau afford to
borrow money, except for a speculative
purpose. No man in regular business
can afford to pay from fifteen to twenty
per cent, per annum, or return to the
lender a sum as interest, equal to tho
whole amount borrowed, and tho princi?
pal beside, in four or five years. Sooner
or later, there will be a collapse, and we
four with much suffering.
