CLEVELAND PRESSED THE BUT
TON. A GREAT PARADE.
The International and Cotton States
Exposition is Now in Full Blast.
With the auspicious accompaninent of mil
itary romp and civic dignity, leading an im
men=e crowd of people, and honored by tht
presence of the dignitaries of the Church and
representatives of foreign countries. the Cot
ton States and International Exposition was
formally opened to the world on Wednesday
The parade was a. brilliant one. Jacking
the tedious encumbrance of a great miscella
neous throng. It was composed entirely of
military boditsand bands of music. headed
by the United States Fifth Infantry and the
Washington Artillery, of New Orleans, and
followed by several regiments of Georgia
The parade moved promptly from tho
starting point at the centar of the city, at
the intersection of rBroad and Marietta
streets. and was about an hour in traversing
the distance of three miles to the exposition
ground-, reaching there about 3:30 o'clock.
The exer,ises at the auditorium were im
posing and impressive. It was a gratifying
surprise that the auditorium. though erowd
ed, was comparatively cool and the acoustic
properties were almost perfct, so that the
tpeakers could be distin-lly heard in all
parts of the building. President Collier re
ceived a great ovation when he arose to
speak. as did 3rs. Joseph Thompson. presi
dnt 4t the Women's iari.
The speeches w-re all god. and the ora
tion by Judge Emory Spter. of the United
Status Court. wa: a profound utterance.
Tb- bit of the day was by Booker T. Wash
ington, the representative ot tlhe negro race,
vho. in a 20 minute speech. ! voked greater
applu-e than all the others put together.
IIe P"ened to have the ear of the audience.
and pensed both whites and blacks.
S orme ultra conservative people who have
doubted the propriety of inviting a negro to
take a prominaent part in the programme
were enthusiastic in their praise of his speech,
and it is generally conceded that its effect
will be a happv one.
The exposition is much nearer completion
than the put-lic had supposed. The actual
opening revealed a series of displays nearer
completeness than any ever shown by an ex
position at its opening.
TRE PRSSzING oF THE BUTToN.
A great crowd of people gathered in the
Machinery Hall before the close of the ex
ereises in the auditorium. waiting to see the
majesti, influence of the touch that would
come over the wires for a thousand miles to
set the machinery in motion. The big Frick
engine was in readiness. and a row of bat
teries rested near the engine. Just at 5:54:20
the President touched the button, the
whistle sounded. the engine moved off at a
lively gait and all the machinery followed
suit. The great crowd sent up a shout that
shook the roof. Almost simultaneously hun
dreds of are lights flashed out on the plaza.
and myriads of incandescent lights gleamed
and seintillated from the -orniets and domes
of the Woman's Building and the Govern
ment Building. It vas just duk, and in the
gathering darkness tLe shouts of the crowds,
the flash of the 'ights and the noise of the
bombs of the PresAientjal salute emphasized
the formal opening .. che exposition.
The transportation facilities proved equal
to the occasion and there was no confusion.
With double tracks on the Southern Baitway
to Atlanta and lines of street railways, the
crowds suffered no inconvenience. The ter
minal facilities were fully adequate, and
there was every facility for ingress and
egress at the grounds.
At Buzzard's Bay the President received
the following telegram before 5 o'clock from
ex-Governor Bullock, chairman on the comn
mittee of arrangements:
"The committee on ceremonies are in
structed by the President and director for
and by the board of directors to express to
the President their high appreciation and
thanks for the great interest the President
has shown, both in this and on other occa
sions. and in behalf of the success of the ex
position. Under the guidance of the hand
of President Clev'eland, one of the most im
portant commercial and industrial events
ever attempted in oursection has now start
ed on its career for the upbuilding of our
material interests by closer commercial re
lations with all portions of our country and
with sister republics South of the Unit'd
States. The mingling of people from all
sections, made possible by the President's
approval and aid to our efforts, will render
future ill-will between the sections impossi
At the request of the committee, the
President was asked to send his message be
fore the button was prsssed in order that ii
might be read to the vast assemblage. h1r.
Cleveland kindly consented and wired the
following at about 5:30 o'clock:
"To the President and Board of Directors
of the Cotton Stat.e and International Expo
sition. Atlanta. Ga.: ully appreciating the
value and importance of the exposition in
augurated to-day, I am especially gratified
to be related to its inception and prc -ess
and to participate in its opening ceremonies.
I sincerely congratulate those whose enter
prise and energy have accomplished such
splendid results, and heartily wish that the
exposition they have set on ft .t will be com
pletely successful in consummating all the
good results contemplated by its promoters.

At night Governor McKinley matde a speecb
and it is estimated that he addressed 25.000
people. He spoke only twenty minutes and
his reception was in the nature of an over
w'helming ovation. Ladies made up nearly
half the audience.
The national encampment to the Son= o1
Veterans has transacted nmo business of pu"lic
importance on acc-:unt of the nmmrous
public functions, further than to hear the re

not because I come under your pbysical
r-yesight, but becauso I realie the truth
that I stand before so many immonal
spirits. The probability is that your b,d.y
will at lasi find a semulcher in some or the
cemeteries that surround this city. There is
no doubt that your obsequies will be decent
and respect ful. and you will be able to pillow
your head under the maple, or the Ncrway
spruce, or the cypress, or the blossoming fir,
but this spirit about which Stephen prayed,
what direction will that take? What guide
*111 scort it'? What gate will open to re
ceiveit? What clont will be cleft for Its
pathway? After it hts got beyond the light
of our sui will there b. torehes lighted for
it the rest of the way?
Will the soul have to travel through long
deserts bef e it reaches the good lant'? I
we should lose our pathway will there be a
castle at whose gate we may ilsk the way to
I the city? Oh, this mysterious spirit within
us! It has two wings, but it is in a cage now.
It is locked fast to keep it, but let the door
of this cage open the least, and that soul:is
off. Eagle's wing could tiet catch it. The
lightaings are not swifft enough to come up
with it. When the soot leaves the body it
takes fifty worlds at a bound. And have I
no anxity about it? Have you no anxiety
I do not care whit yot do vith my body
when my soul is gone. or whether you be
l:eve in -remation or inhumation. I shall
sleep just as weil in a wrapping of sackcloth
us in satin linod with eagle's down. But my
s'ul-b'ore I close this discourse I will r d
out where it will lan 1. Thank God for the
utimation of my te.xt that when we die
Jesus takes us. That answers all questions
for me. What though there were massive
bars between here and the City of Light,
Jesus could remove them. What
though there were great Saharas of
darkness, Jesus could illume them.
What though I get weary on the way, Christ
rcould lift me on His omniotent shoulder.
What though thire were chssms to cross
His hand could transport me. Then i94
Stephen's prayer be my dying litany, "Lord
Jesus, receive my spirit." It may be in that
hour we will be too feeble to aay a long
prayer. It may be in that hour we will not
be able to say the Lord's Prayer. for it has
seven petitions. Perhaps we may be: too fee
ble even to say the infant prayer our mothers
taught us, which John Quincy Adams.. se'?
enty years of age. said every night when he
put his head upon ht~ pillow:
Now I lay me down to sleep.
I pray the Lord my soul to keep.
We may be too feeble to employ either of
these familiar forms, but this prayer of
IStephen is so short, is so concise. is so earn
Iest, is so comprehensive, we surely will be
able to say that, "Lord Jesus, receive my
spirit." Oh, if that prayer is answered, how
sweet It will be to die! This world: is clever
enough to us. Perhaps It has treated us a
great deal better than we deserved to be
treated, but if on the dying pil.low there shall
break thbe light of that better world we shall
have no more regret than about les.vinig a
small, dark, damp house for one large, beau
tiful.and capacious. That dying minister in
Philadelphia, some years ago, beautif'ully
Idepicted it when, In the last moment, he
threw up his hands and cried out, "I move
Pass on now, and I will show you or.e
more picture, and that is Stephen asleep.
With a pathos and simplicity pecular to the
Scriptures the text says of Stephen, "He fell
asleep.'' "Oh," you say, "what a place that
was to sleep! A hard rock under him,
stones falling down upon him, the blood
streaming, the mob howling. What a place
it was to sleep'." And yet my text takes that
symbol of slumber to describe his departure,
so sweet was it, so contented was it, so
peaceful was It. Stephen had lived a very
laborious life. His chief work had been to
care for the poor. How many loaves of
bread ho had distributed, how many bare
feet he had sandaled, how many cots of sick
newr and distress he bad blessed with minis
tries of kindness- and love, I do not know'
Yet fro-n the way he lived, and the way he 'I
preached, and the way he died, I know be
was a laborious Christian. But that Is all
over now. He has pressed the cup to the
last fainting Uip. He has taken the last in
suit from his enemies. The last stone to
Iwhose crushing weight he Is susceptible has
been hurled. Stephen Is dead! The dis
ciples come. They take him up. They wash
away the blood from the wounds. They
straighten out the bruised limbs. They
brush back the tangled hair from the bror;,
and then they pass around to look upon the
calm countenance of him who had lived for
the poor and died for the truth. Stephen
I have seen the sea driven with the hurrn
cane until the tangled foam caught in the
rigging, and wave rising above wave seemed
as if about to storm the heavens, and then I
have seen the tempest drop, and thec waves
crouch, and everything become smooth and
burnished as though a camping place for the
glories of heaven. So I have seen a mnan
whose life bas been tossed and riven com
ing down at last to an infinite calnm in whic~h
there was a hush of heavei's lullaby.
I saw such a one. He fought all his days
against poverty and against abuse. They
traduced his name. They rattled at the
doorknob while he was dying with duns for
dents he could not pay. Yet the peace of
God 1:rooded over his pillow. and while the
world faded heaven dawned, and the deep
ening twilight of earth's night was only thie
opening twilight of heaven's morn-. Not a
Isigh. Not a tear. Not a struggle. Hush!
I have not the faculty as many have t o tell
the weather. I can never tell by the setting
sun whether there will be a drought or not.
I cannot tell by the. blowing of the wind
whether it will be fair weather or foul on the
morrow. Blut I can propnesy and t will
prophesy what weather It wv1il be when you,
the Christia. come to die. Yo,u may have
it very rough'now. It may be this week one
annoyanee, the next another annoyance. It
may be this year one bereavement, the next
another b"reavement. But at the last Christ
will come in, and darkness will go out. And
tb->ugh there may be no hand to close your
eyes, and no breast on which to rest your
Idyving head, and no candle to lift the night,
Itlie odors of God's hanging garden will re
gale your soul, and at your bedside will halt
the chariots of the k!ng. No more rents to
pay. no more agony because flour has gone
up, no more struggle with "the world, the
fih and the devil," but peace--long, deep,
everlasting peace. Stephen asleep!
Asleep in Jesus, blessed sleep. -
From which none ever wake to weep:
A calm and undisturbed repose,
Unnured by the .last of foes.
Asleep in Jesus, far from thee
Thy kindred and thy graves may be.
Buit there is still a blessed sleep,
From which none ever wake to weep.

A Happy Release AfIter Iloth Had About
From th.- Ctwiaian. Clinton. . 'Z.
We had been reliably informed that J. F.
Bailey. of Warsaw. Dublin Co., N. C., had
been cured of consumption, and sent a re
porter to see him and make a report. believ
ing that the fac'ts would be welcome to many
readers of this paper. We found Mr. Bailey
strong in the belief that he had had con.
sumption, though his physieian. Dr. W. P.
E ennedy, sinted the case in a little different
way. The dioctor said:
"Mr. Bai!ey was suflfering from overwork
and chronic malarial poisoning, with some
of t he symptoms of chronic rheumatism and
a general tun-down condit>n of his system.
"Boils prevented him from work a part of
the time. Blronchitis and spitting of blood
were sources of great annoyance to him.
It is probab!y true that the doctor was cor
ret, though without doubt Mr. Bailey would
eventually have gone into consumption, as
this disease frequently follows the symptoms
and conditions above given. He was thor
oughly cured, however. Mr. Batley said to
"In the spring of '94 I began farm work.
Soon I found my health failing and a hack
ingecough my constant companion.
"I grew so weak that I could no longer
work. My cough became so severe that I
was unable to sleep, and I was constantly
spitting up bloor1 and corruption. My phy
sician could give me no relief and I contin
ued to grow weaker andl weaker. I had well
nigh given up all hope of living, much less
being restored to my ust.a: strezagth when a
friend called nmy attentioa to hastimonia!s as
to ths value of Dr. Williams,' Pink Pdis for
Pale People. I at once left off using the
medicine prescribed by my physician and
began to take the Pink F~IlS. I felt the good
effects of this wonderful medicine within
three days. In less than two months' time
I was a w' .i man, and three boxes of Dr.
Williams' Pink Pill, did the work.
"Is it any' wonder." quericd Mir. Bailey,
"that I sing the vraiss of Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills when they~ have done so much
for me? Blut for the timely use of them I
would to-day be in my g-ave and I want the
world to know of their incalculable value as
The reporter havring heard that Mr. John
H. Loftin. or Warsaw. had been cured of
rheumatism by the use of three boxes of Dr.
Williams' Pink Pila, irnterviewed him with
the fellzwing result. Said Mr. Loftin: "'I tu
ferel intensely vwith rheumatism for ten
months. I was entirely helpless for two
months. I tried various remedies but none
of them did me aoy good. Having heard of
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills and their wonderful

the use of thecm with wonderful effect. In
two weexs' time I was a ble to leave my bed,
and in a few months' time I was able to do

Caterpillars and Eye Diseases.
It will come as a surprise to many
persons to learn that caterpillar3 are
responsible for an affection of the
eyes which may entail prolonged suf
fering and even result in serious dam
age to vision. That such is the case
has been abundantly proved by the
number of instances on record in
which more or less intractible inflam
mation of the eyeshas been found to be
associated with the presence of hiirs.
whicb, after removal, have been iden

Ophthamological Society a ese was
related in which a lad was struck in
the eye by a caterpillar thrown at him
by a playial schoolfel!u. He picked
up the insect to examine it, and the
hand which seized it became red and
developed papules and other indica
tions of local irritation. A day or two
later the eye became the seat of what
proved to be a very troublesome in
