??Dead Game Sports."
A newspaper fails of its mission If it
Is not a chronicle and record of the
times. In the early days we had the
Olympic games in Greece of whloh
Jove in' his nearby habitation on
Olympus was the ohief patron. All
Greece was in the quadrennial con
test, historians, orators, dramatists,
and athletes contending for the vic
- tor's crown, usually a wreath of oak or
'laurel. In these civilized States the
great contests are just closing with the
charming Indian Summer days. The
'Kings and Queens of the turf have
just had their great test of spoed upon
the fashionable courses-and and are
laid up cow for the winter. In North
Carolina under the oaptalnoy of young
Prince Lorillard, son of tbre* Now York
Tobacco King, the fanoy setters and
pointers of the nation during the last
week were brought together by the
"dead game sports" and their noses
and heels put to the test. In old Ken
tucky the followers of the ohaso aro as
sembled from all parts of the land and
some half dozen ounning reynards aro
run down eaoh day to test tho speed of
the silver tonguod hound. A few eve
nings since Gentry, the fastest harness
horso In the world, was auctioned olY at
Madison Square Garden, New York,
(where Bryan spoke) before three
thousand Knickerbockers at 910,000, a
half dozen bands discoursing rioutous
music. All the same, our pigs aro

triots (sooallod) aro reported brighten

Atlantic and Gulf Coast fortifications
are being brushed up. Those faots,
coupled with Consul General Lee's
visit to the States, backs the sugges
tion that President Cleveland will re
cognize Cuban Independence on Jan
uary 1st and thereupon Spain will in
stantly declare war against this Gov
ernment. In the tussle tho Spaniards
would loose Cuba and wo would fall
heir in the long run to sugar and to
bacco plantations of that "gem" of tho
Antilles. Sugar and tobacco fit In
nicely. Every man of us Southern

"Our gold standard friends, who,
some weeks ago. were promising a, rise
in the price of cotton in the event of

hedging by asserting that if Bryan
had been elected the price would havo
been lower. Just how this would have
been, of course, we are unable to say;

KN, who hold the purse strings, often deprive women of articles
of inestimable value. The wife pleads with her husband for
a Piano or an Organ, which is tenfold more essential fhan the
cigar and other luxuries in which he indulges. The daughter
asks father, or guardian, to buy an Instrument to enable her to
cultivate that beautiful talent, music. Does any sane man not
relize this a reasonable right to plead and ask for? Reflect a minuto !
Think of the means expended for instruction, and the many tedious
hours employed in practice by wife and daughter, and of their glowing
anticipations subsequently to be realized.
Now, father, husband, or guardian, arc you going to blast all
these bright anticipations by denying them of this merited right?simply
the gift of a Piano or an Organ ?
