Children Cry for Pitcher's Castoria.
An esteemed correspondent In La
clede county, "a Democrat in warp and
tilling,' Informs us that a patriot of
his locality has secured a pension for
sore eyes resulting from service to hiv
country though ever since the war he
hastieen "a regular shooting sports
man' and a constant competitor in tin
county shooting nmtcho. Our corre
spondent thinks il might be expedient
to direct the ntlenlion of the propel
authorities to this fraud, but a

Ths Ttnant Fsrmsrs ol Michigm
Tho commissioner of the bdmr bn
reau of Michigan has just made a re
port which gives some startling stall -tics
in regard the condition of Hit
fanners of that state. He has been
gathering facts respecting the mort
gages held on farms in Michigan, and
his figures indicate that probably oik
half of ibe farming land of the stale
and possibly more is incumbered with
these Imrdcns. Of '.o:t farms about
w hich the commissioner was able to
leani 41,070 were mortgaged in whole
or in part, or alfout 47 per cent nf the
entire number, while the nmrigflge.
amounted to fioni ,V to o per cent of
tho assessed value of t lie land. On
these mortgages the farmers are now
paving an average rale of interest as
high as 7.2 per cent, w hich mean that
they are paying the mortgages Ins en
tire loan every fourteen years in addi
tion to being held for the principal
This is a lamentable condition of af
fairs, and under which no agricultural
community can maintain even the i
pcarance of prosperity fo any length of
time. The Michigan farmers are seem
ingly engaged in a struggle to enricl
tbe money lenders of the state, instead
of to render themselves independent,
and the records show that their history
is not peculiar among agricuturalist
The farmer will never wrest a good iu
heritauce from the ground until he is
content to live within his means and
ceases to discount the future by borrow
ing on the security of his homestead. -New
