the large boat and the small boat glide over
gentle Gennesaret. But the sailors say
there is going to be a change of weavier.
And even the passengers can hear the moQ .
ing of the storm as it comes on with ")-g
stride, with all the terrors of hurricane and
darkness. The large boat trembles like a
deer at bay trembling among the clangor o.
the hounds: great patches of foam are trag
into the air; the sails of the vessels loosen,
and the sharp winds cra:k like pistols:
the small boats like petrels pcie
on the cliff of the waves and then plunge.
Overboard go cargo, tack:ing and masts, the
drenched disciples iush into the back part of
the boat and lay hold of Christ and say to hit.
"Master, carest thou not that we perish."
That great personage lifts his head from the
pillow of the fisherman's coat. walks to the
front of the vessel and looks out into the
storm. All around him are the smaller boats,
driven in the tempest, and through it comes
the cry of drowning men. By the lass of
the lightning I see the ca.lm brow of Chrin:
as the spray dropped from his beard. lie

amazement, now looking into the calm sea.
then into the calm sky, then into the caltm
of the Saviour's countenance, and then cry
out, "What manner of man is this, that even
the 'winds and the sea obey himT'
The subject in the first place impresses me
'with the fact that it is very importan: to
have Christ in the ship, for nil those boats
'would have gone to the bottom of Gennesaret
if Christ had not been present. Oh, what a
lessorn for you and for me to learn: What.
ever voyage we undertake, into 'whatever
enterprise 'we start, let us always have
Christ in the ship. MIany of you in these
days of revived commerce are s:arting out.
in new financial enterprises. I bid you good
cheer. Do all you can do. Do it on as hig'n
a plane as possible. You have no right to
be a stoker in the ship if yotu can be an aut
miral of the navy. You have no right to be
a colonel of a regiment if you can comnar~d
a brigade. You have no right zo be engi
neer of a boar on river banks or near the
coast if'you can rake the ocean steamer from
New York to Liverpool. All you can do.
'with utmost tension ot body, mind and so:n!,
you are bound to do: but, oh, have Christ i
every enterprise, Christ in every voyage.
Christ in every ship:
There are men 'who ask God to help them
at the start of great enterprises. lHe has
been with them in the past. No troutble can
overthrow them. The storms might come
down from the top of MIount liermon and
lash Gennesaret into foa? and into agony-.
but it could not hurt thems. But here is an
other man 'who starts out. in worldly enter
prises, and he depends upon the uncertain
ties of this life. He has rno God to help him.
After awhile the storm comes and tosses off
the masts of the ship. H e puts out his life
boat. The sheriff and the auctioneer try to
help him off'. They can't help him oti. lie
must go down. No Christ in the ship: Here
are young men just starting out in life.
Your life 'will be made up of sunshine and
shadow. There may be in it arctic blasts or
tropical tornadoes. I know not wh::t is be
foeyou, but I know if you have Christ wi:
you all shall be well.

The Generai Oatiook -Weekn y Buntiit.zin
of the Weath)r inareaui Ined Lrast Week
by Director B.ner.
The following weekly tatemient of
the crop and weather conditions for
this section has been served by Direct
The first of the week was beloe the
normal temper ture and the latter
part decidedly in excess. Day temit
perstures were high with maximum
of 1(1 on the 2Sh at Liberty. Daring
the early portion of the week she
nichts were cool with a minimum
temperature or 57 on the 23., 24th and
25:h at Walhalla.
The weekly mean temnerature of
46 reporting stations was 7;, while the
noratal for the same period is about 77.
There was but little rain during the
week and was continued to light local
showers over the extreme western,
northwestern, norther-n aod southeast
ern counties on the 23, 24th and 25:h.
Tre central counties were without
rain :ne erntire week. With the ex
ception of the little rainfall just nocd,
the mcasurements reported this week
refer to the rain of the 21st, which
fell too late to be inrluded in last
week's reports and should be credited
to the previoas ;wee's rainfall.
Twenty-one measurements of less than
an inch were received, 10 of from 1 to
2 inches, and four of over 2 inches,
with a maximum fail of 4.50 at White
Hall. The normal for the week is
approximately 1.4S, and the average
ofall measurements is 1.00.
Light hail accompanied a rain storm
in E:igeneld over Toibert and adjoin
ing townships on the 23, doing consid
erable injury to crops. A severe nlail
storm occurred about seven miles
from Charleston on the evening of
the 29th, with hail-stoh es ranging in
size f rom peas to chesnuts, and dam
ain corn seriously over a lii~ited
There were a few local high
winds. which, ho wever, did no injury.
The sunshine was largely in excess
of the normal and ranged from 60 to
100O per cent. of the possible, with an
average per cent, of $2 for the State.
The week's weather w,:. very favor
able for harvesting rice, making hay,
pulieg fodder, digging potatoes,
nicking cotton and also favorable for
growing crops generally. Worms
and caterpillars have almcst entirely
disappeared and are confined to limit
ed areas in a few counties only. Sea
sonable farm work advanced rapidly
during the week.
The reports on cotton are with few
exceptions unfavorable to the crop
and note deterioration in condition in
every county except York, Spartan
burg. Oronee and portions of Marion.
Chester, Sumter. Lauces, Anderson,
Abbeville and Green tvood, where on
heavy soils the plant continues to
grow and hold the fruit it puts on.
Over the remainder of the State gen

quares and young bolls, and on 11,.ht
sandy soils the plant is apparently
dying rapidly and is done fruiting.
Black rust is prevalent, and im places

the rains of the previous week.
Sea island cotton is not materially

in the general deterioration of upland

IThe first peanut oil factory in the
United States will be established in
Norfoin, Va., at an early date. The
oil is highly valued in Europe, as it
stated that fully $5,000,000 worth of
peanuts are brought into Marseilles
annually for tae manufacture of oil,
which is used in toilet soaps and for
other purposes. Tue peanut flour is
quite extensively used in Europe and
made into bread, cases, biscuits, &c.
It is one of the favorite articles of
food, according to consular reports,
in hospitals in Germany. The capi

$60,00, and it is operating under the

was esecrrd over to Ridgewood Park,

be held. It was a most urdesirable
pice to hod a meetin,yet the crowd
was a bi.z one, more than :3, J men

Henry Nicholis presided over the
meeting and made a short spceeh, in
which he extolled the provisions of
the Chicago platform and berated the
Democrats who left the party because
Tillman was introduced as the "the
people's advocate and the foeman of
the Sugar Trust and every other form
of monopoly." His speech was not
arzumeut, but assertion, interspersed
with jtsta and jeers. Here are some
of the thir es he said:
"The Dauccracy was born 100 years
ago and went down to defeat in its
firs: struggle through the eforts of the
aristocrats. A new, regeneratcd Dc
mccracy was born in Chicago last
year, and it went down to its first de
ieat under the blows of the aristccrats
and the influence of the tens of mit
lions of tribute levied upon them by
Mark Hanna. But just as sure as you
live that regenerated De:nocracy will
come to the front again in 1900 and
will elect William Jennings Bryan.
"The Republican party in its thirty
years of rule succeeded, with the aid
of an occasional so called Democratic

South Carolinian walked into the Troy
house he was a tired man, but a flash
of fire appeared in his right eye when
risked whether he had read The Sun's
story about what cx Senator Irby had
sid in a recent stump speech in
M4annin^, S. C. In that speech Irby
declared that Tillman had been made
coverror by a falsifdentien of the pre
liiay v .ute.
"Well," said the senator, as he
dr'oe d in"o the nearest seit. "so far
as I know there was no cheating. The
prcceedings of the convention, as far
as my knowledge goes, were entirely
re gur.Why, Irby and I have
tai'-ed .bout the matter time and time

influenced the change in votes on the
second ballot which carried the nomi
nation by one vote. If there was any
fraud I don't know anything about it.
I was not there. I do not believe that
I was 'cheated in.' Irby is a sharp
politician and likes to talk."
"What do you thin k of the tactics
being pursued by Itby?"
Well, I suppose they are consid
ered good politics. As I said before,
Irby is a very shrewd man."
"What show does he stand of get
tir. the senatorial indorsement?" was
"oh, as for that," replied the sena
tor dryiy, "why. really, 1 don't care
to express ar.y opinion. Ir by is sharp,
"But do you think he will carry the
primary next Tuesday ?"
The senator looked up at the big
clock ticking away on the wall,
hummed a bar or two of the "Ei Cap
tan" march, and then said:
"Oh, I don't know. Just watch the
primary. The man who captures it
will go to the United States senate.
Toe legislature is bound to carry out
the will of the people thus expressed."
"What do you care to say about
Irby's statement that he hatched you."
"Tfat's all talk," answered the sen
ator somewhat contemptuoasly.
"Hatch me, indeed."
"Irby says that he originated the
March convention a year back to give
you the nomination on a silver wait
"So I sce. Why, that March affair
wasn't a convention: it was merely a
caucus of 1%mocratic factions. At
the t me there was some doubt as to
the wisdom of the nomination. In
fact, there was considerable feeling
en the matter. Now, as to Irby's re
lation to me politically. Irby has al
ways been a smart politician. I think
I said that before. He proved an ex
cellent lieutenant to me. He takes a
2reat deal upon nimself whcn he says
he made me," said the senator, with
a merry laugh.
"What about prosperity, senator?2"
"I can't say that I have seen any
very material evideraces of it during
my travels. What prosperity there
is I think is only spasmodic, a hot- bal
loon affair that will soon collapse.
This w heat boonm is merely speculative
and is designed to aid Mark Hanna.
There is not such a wonderful crop of
wheat as some people would have oth
ers believe. If there is I can't get any
proof of the fact. Prosperity ? Why,
the country will not be prosperous un
til the farmer gets out of debt. The
story that the so called big wheat crop
will take the farmer out of debt is
nonsense. Suppose that the west does
profit some. What of it? Won't it
be at the expense of you people nere
in the east? If wheat goes up, so will
the price of bread. And I understarnd
that the bakers of Troy have already
increase:1 the price of bread. Is it so?
Done at a meetmng held last night, eh?
Well, I was right, wasn't I?'
Then the senator drifted to the tariff
"The Dingley tariff bill," he said,
"is the most infamous surrender to
trusts I ever heard of. It is nositively
appalling. I- will do more to harm
tnis country and check prosperity
than anything ever heard of dreamed
The denreciation of silver has not
lessened the senator's ardor for the
white metal. Neither has it decreased
his admiration for William Jennings
"If Mr. Bryan were to be voted for

with the ]arge yield we have here at
hcme wheat would command not
nce than nity cents a bushel now.
and would be fed, as it was a few years
ago, when we had a large crop, to our
liev stock. A mere teraporarv relief
has come to the wheat farmers of this
country at this time, because of cruel
drouths and unpropitious weati er in
most of the cer wheat producing
sections of the world. Or wheat
farmers' good fortune is based on the
misfortunes of wheat farmers in other
sections of the world, and it is a very
weak foundation to base the presperi
ty of the world upon. At the best it
primarily reaches but one class of
nroducers, and that a small class. If
we could have dollar corn and ten
cent cotton for this year's product, it
would reach every farmer, for every
farmer raises corn and cotton and has
it to sell. It is true by helping the
wheat farmer, other classes to a greater
or less extent will be benefitted, for he
will be enabled to pay the interest on
his mortgage indebtedness, to pay
his store bills, taxes, etc., to rpatron
ize mechanics and merchants, and
all will feel more or less the ben
efits of the influx of money from
abroad into his pockets. But will the
present increased price of wheat be
any index to any permanent prosperi
t3 ? Does it give any assurance that
we will have dollar wheat a year from
now? On the other hand does it not
give the assurance that in a year from
now, wheat will be begging for buyers
at fifty cants a bushel or less, unless
some great and world-wide calamity
should again befall the crop? We
have been watching closely for a quar
ter of a century the result of such un
expected upheavals in price of certain
farm crops, and we here make a pre
diction that one year from now wheat
will be selling at half the price it is
today. The increase in price will
stimulate production the world over.
It will not be confined to this country,
for the price is high everywhere.
More wheat will be planted and be put
in the ground in better condition, and
be better fertilized in France and Eng
land, in Russia and Prussia. in Tur
key and India and in Argentine and
indeed in all countries where wheat
can be grown, than has been planted
for years. The higher price of this
year will stimulate all wheat growers
to plant more laagely with the expec
tation that such prices will be main
tained. Oar own American farmers
will travel the same road. History
will repeat itself. Over production
is as sure to come another year as the
year itself is to come, and nothing but
seme great world-wide calamity can
prevent it. Where will be the sweet
consolation then, with 'vheat at forty
or fifty cents a bushel, which many
of our friends are now enjoying over
the great general prosperity which
dollar wheat is bringing to our coun
try. It is a false hope, because it ap
plies to but one farm crop out of a
hundred-the others being still in the
slough of despond. We should be
able to lock at things squarely in the
Some Happy Farmers.
"The return of prosperity and the
ieign of dollar wheat with its blescing
of financial relief to the farmer is an
old story," says the Augusta Chroni
cle. "We have seen a few statements
going the rounds of the press of a
Kansas farmer who bought a small
farm last y ear, on credit, and paid for
it with this year's wheat crop, and
other farmers who have paid off mort
gages on ineir farms. We do not
know how well authenticated these
stories are, and where names are given
they are not known so far from here.
But it is our pleasure to be able to furn
ish this morning a galaxy of names that
shine in the agricultural firmament
and are kno wn not only to farmers,
but the world at large. These are
men who have taken the tide of dol
lar wheat 'at its full' when it led on
to fortune, and their fellow farmers,
all over the country, will rejoice in
their prosperity. Ex Secretary Frances

A Practical Philaathropist.
When the present governor of Michi
gaa was mayor of Detroit he proposed
that all the vacant lots in the city
sbculd be planted in potatoes for the
poor. He was subjectel t2 much ridi
cule on account of this scheme, and
"Potato" Pn tes became famous
throughcut the land, Pingree is a
man of firm purpose, and he persisted
in his plans until those who had tried
to laugh it away stood abashed before
its practical and beneficent results.
Potato patches for the poor have be
come part of the fixed policy of De
troit's municpal government. No
less than 1,536 families that have been
dependent upon charity to a greater
or less extent are working potato
patches this year. Their operations
cc. var 403 acres of land, something less
aban a quarter of an acre per family.
They planted 3.000 bushels of potatoes
at 20 cents a bushel, and $3,500 worth
of seeds. All that they raise is for their
own consumption. The 1,536 families
at work represent, according to Mr.
P. H. Dwyer, the secretary of the
board of poor commissioners,
about 10,000 persons or about one
twenty-fifth of the entire popula
tion cf Detroit. It is said that the
Pingree system has done good far be
yond a mere temporary supply of food
to the pcor. It has taught industry
and self dependence and has had an
elevating influence on the habits of
many who have worked in the Pin
gree patches. The experiment suc
ceeded so well in Detroit that it has
been adopted with some modifications
in Chiergo. The difference between
the two systems is that while Pingree
gardens in Detroit are supplied by the
city they are supplied in Chicago by
private subscriptions. It is claimed
that the Chicago plan works better,
but it has not so far distributed its
benefits so widely. Chicago has only
149 families engaged in this industry,
while Detroit with about one-eighth
as much population as Chicago, has
at work on Pingree's plan 1,536 fami
lies, representing nearly 10.000 per
sons. The ofiicial reports show that in
Detroit last year 1,700 lots were culi
tivated by 1,700 families; the work
cost t'se city $2,400, an average cost of
$L48Sa lot. The total product was
estimated to be worth $3u,998, giving
$18.23 worth of vejketables as tthe aver
age production of each lot. The re
suits this year are expected to be even
more satisfactory. L is too late to
laugh at Pingree. He is a practical
philanthropist, and has helped thous
ands of his suffering fellowmen.
New Ergiand DriveL.
It is surprising to find in the Spring
field Republican, a newspaper which
has-enjoyed a reputation for sound
sense and good judgment, an editorial
in which the wiiter says that the af
fliction of lynchings in the south is a
divine judgment "upon those through
whom this offense of negro importa
tion and servitude came." The Atlan
ta Journal very truly says the Spring
field Republican should not permit hy
pocrisy and cant to make it obvious to
the history of African slavery in this
country and the part which New E ag
land played in it. The importation
of negroes and the establishment of
slauery in the United States was al
most exclusively a Ne w England in
dustry. The south brought some ne
groes from Africa to be sold as slaves,
but it was long after this section had
been largely supplied with slaves by
enterpri ing Yankees, who grew rich
in the in famous tralie-. Tte exchange
of New England ru~n, the worst arti
cle of its hind ever made any w here,
for aegrees on the c.:aat of Mfrie. was
for man~y years a tiriving business.
It was found that the negroes could
not stand the New Englan~d climate
and they were worked off on the
south by the ancestors of the people
who afterwards oscame horrifi :d at
savery and led the movement for its
abolition. The main responsibility
