The Bondage of Ignorance.
It is a common and chronic excuse
with thousands of farmers and work'
ing men that they have "no time to
read." With all due respect to them
this statement is not true. All of
them, no matter how busy they may
be, have more or less time to spare
for reading. The plea of ignorance
and the claim of "no time to read"
are. poor and unworthy excuses in
this modern day of the omnipresent
printing press and era of cheap book9
and newspapers. The man who has
no time read has no time to live, and
in fact he does not live in the fullest
and truest sense. He is merely a
machine without intelligent thought,
a mental slave wno tons ir the
benefit of others and a mere pittance
for himself. Those who have "no
time to read," are simply drudges
the benefit of whose labor is utilized
by those who do read and think.
The politician reads; the capitalist
reads; the schemer, the trader, the
campaign managers, the shrewd men
who live by the labor of others, read
They read and think and plan and
study; they work with their heads as
well as with their hands, for they
know that knowledge is power and
that ignorance is slavery in its worst
form. The farmer and the laborer
who make the pitiful, unreasonable
excuse that tney nave no time to
read toil on like Issachar's ass bear
the burdens and receiving the
kicks and cuffs they can not hope to
escape while they are steeped in
ignorance, while their minds that
might otherwise be strong and pro
ductive remain neglected and unculti
vated. Intelligence rules the world.
It holds the reigns of leadership, die
tates the policy of the government
and makes the laws of the nations,
Ignorance grovels in the dust, is a
burden-bearer and slave to intelli
gence and wears the shackles of
mental and physical bondage.
It i3 useless for the laborer to plead
ignorance and lack of time to obtain
information. Literature is absurdly
cheap and ho who seeks the truth to
make him free will always contrive
to find time and opportunity. A
finished education is denied to the
great majority indeed it is gainec;
by few but common intelligence
and practical information are within
the reach of all. The farmer who
claims he has no time to read forgets
the rainy days, the winter evenings
the hours he idles away in town, the
long noon hours, etc. Some of the
world's greatest thinkers obtained
their education while following the
plow. Elihu Burritt was educated
in a blacksmith shop; there is a way
where there is a will. The laborer in
the shop or factory has time to read
if he will only take it; the Sundays,
the rest hours, the occasional idle
fluvs. thp ninrhfj Ihp nrkl mnmpnts
that come to even the busiest. If he
has no time to read then he has no
time to visit saloons, to get drunk, to
frequent bagnios, to "take in the
town" and in other ways which are
too common with many of them,
worse than idle away the time not
given to actual work. There is not a
laborer in Knoxville, or Chattanooga,
or any where else, who cannot keep
fairly well posted in political history
past and current, in social and politi
cal economy, literature, mechanical
science, etc., if he so wills it. Most
of them do rind tiiL,e to keep posted
on baseball and- prize-ligh'ing, and
similar matters. They follow their
tastes, but it Is for the gratification of
worthless pleasure, not or the sake
of valuable information or practical
The laboring classes will never bo
successful in their efforts to amelio
rate their condition ortosustain them
selves in any struggle for their bet
ferment or advancement so long es
they neglect to seek knowledge, and
allow others to do their reading and
(linking. So long as they have "no
time to read" so long: will they be
the underdog in tho fight, the mud
sills of tho social superstructure. An
intelligent thinking minority will al'
ways win against a thoughtless ig-
These facts are coming to be more
and more appreciated. The laboring
classes ton large extent are being
awakened to the necessity of mental
improvament, A campaign of educa-
ion is in progress, and thousands of
aborers are going to school. The
farmers are aroused and are reading
and thinking to-day as never before.
All this agitation and discussion will
result in final and substantial benefit.
The greatest danger is that many
may be lead into wrong ideas by
false teachers, but the errors will be
demonstrated in the end and the
experience will be valuable, as
experience always is. The
aboring men in the shops, mines
and factories are becoming better
posted, better informed. In their
trades unions and labor organiza-.
tions they are discussing, investigat-
ng, thinking. The intelligence
with which many of them discuss
the problems that now perplex the
public would be surprising to many.
They realize that it must be not only
through organization but by intelli
gent thought and action that their
efforts can be made in any degree
effective, and they are striving for
knowledge. Their greatest draw
back is those among them who make
the pretense that they have "no
time to read."
So long as a people merely growl
and mutter their achievements will
be small, but when they begin to
think, look for results 1 Thought is
the mainspring of intelligent action;
it is the greatest power; it moves the
world, and to the intelligent readers,
students and thinkers the non-readers
and the non-thinkers must pay
tribute. Let those who pretend to
have no lime to read or think re
member this fact, a fact that has been
demonstrated through all the ages.
Merit wins, as the marvelous sue
cess of Hood's Sarsaparilla shows. It
possesses true mtdicinal merit. Sold

Let me remind you that God is ever
present,and sees the inmost thoughts;
and while he allows every one to act
freely, he gives to such as earnestly
and honestly desire la do right all
the needed strength and encourage'
ment to do it. Therefore do not
cheat yourself by doing what you hm
pect may be wrong. oi are as
much accountable to your Maker for
an enlightened exercise of your
conscience as you would be to me to
use due diligence in taking care of
a bag of money which I might send
by you to some one else. If you
were to throw it upon deck, or into
the bottom of the coach, you would
certainly be culpable; but It you
packed it carefully in your trunk
and placed the trunk in the usual sit
uation, it would be using common
sense. So in the exercise of your con
science: if you refuse to examine
whether an action is right or wrong
you voluntarily defraud yourself of
the guide provided by the Almighty
It you do wrong, you have no better
excuse than he who done so willing
lv and wilfuly. It is the sincere de
sire that will be accepted.

' The Farmers are Losers.
New York, July 81. The Farm
ers' Alliance In the South last year
tried to bring about a better price lor
cotton bv holding back a part of the
crop. Whether they knew it or not
they were playing against the specu
latorsand the money power of Wall
Street, and they have lost. It is est!
mated that 600,000 bales of last year
crop have not been sold. Now the
experts who make estimates in the
interest of speculators simply add
these (500,001) bales to the estimated
crop of 1801. The speculators fix the
price of cotton, and the price is basec
on the estimated crop. This cotton
held back by the Farmers' Alliance
is now estimated as a part of this
year's crop, and, if sold this season
will bring at least half a cent a pound
less than it would have sold for last
year, unless some Unexpected acci
dent cuts short the growing crop
The speculators are much amused
at the ease with which they have

you must shut the gate right away,

These are good words, actions,

you must open the gate right away

"Well, Maggie," asked a teacher
of a little girl, "haw iait you are so
late this morning to school?"
"Please; sir," was the reply,
"There wis a wee bairn cam' to oor

"Ah" said the teacher, with a
smile; "and wasn't your father very
pleased with the new baby?"
"No, sir; my father's awa' in Eden-

It was a guid thing my mither was at

Is there a single particle of blood poiiOS
In your veins? Beware! Like the de
Touring Hame, it increases in force and
leaves only destruction in its track.
Poison in the blood is due sometimes to
contagion. Sometimes it is inherited. It
ruins health, no matter from which source
it springs. It feeds in a horrible manner
on the liesli, and devastates every organ
of the body. Pitiable in the extreme
would be the condition of that man await
ing death from the effects of scrofula,
syphilis, deep-seated ulcers, rottening of.
the bones, sloughing of the flesh, aching
Ioints, etc., were there no salvation for
tim. But there is; for, although these
conditions continuo to grow worse if neg
lected, he nevertheless can bo saved to a
life of usefulness, and every trace of blood
poison can be eliminated from his system
and he be mado Bate from further suffer
ing, and his posterity insured against the
possibility of a fearful heritage, easily and
quickly, if he will only use that infallible
antidote for blood poison, Dr. John Bull's
Sarsaparilla. It contains just such ingre
dients as nature has provided for cleans
ing the blood of every impurity, for re
storing strength tp the digestive processes,
for assisting in the correct assimilation o
nutrition and building up new tissue.
Try it when otler remedies have failed.
It has never and never will disappoint any
one. J. B. Morse, Clinton, Inu., writes:
" I was for many years affected with con
tagious blood poison. Portions of my fleah
geemed to be fairly putrid and mortifying.
My hair foil out, and I was an object of r--pulslon
to every One. My breath smelled
horrible, and I had catarrh so fearfully bud
that pieces of frontal bones rotted and came
out Miy nostrils. I lost the sense of taste
and smell. I Became a veritable Dag o'
bones, and weighed only eighty-nine
pounds. I could hardly sleep from pa)n,
nd was jo weuk I could hardly walk. The
doctors said I could not live many month.
