Ah l'atrlck Honry r.id, " It in uao
loas to cry peace when thuro la no
poaco." llonry Uu-ly novor loved the
nation into poaco for moru than uhout
a wook. Butter take that inscription
ulT hie mouuinout. What alarms me la
the fact that tho Northorn papers that
are most hitter against us arc tho most
popular with their peoplo. This is a
bad sign. Tho Now York Press boasts
that its circulation Is twice as great as
that of all tho Kopublican papers of
Now York and Brooklyn combined, and
It lb Increasing overy day. It is ably
and bitterly odltod. Not a dally Ibhuo
but has boiiio Hing or slander against
tho 8outh. I wouldn't caro for what an
editor said if hiu roaderBdldontapprovo
and ondorso it, and it is roasonaolo to
to suppose that tho million Northorn
readers of Tho I 'reas hato us as cordially
as does tho editor. I can't account for
this antipathy for we aru not doing any
thing to thorn. In last Sunday's paper
Tho 1'roaa says that wo "should build
a monument to 1'aul Sloan, tho doputy
sheriff of Lake Charles, La., because
ho lost his lifo in trying to protect a
negro from a mob." That is not so bad,
but ho continues his remarks and Bays
we "should sot up his statue in place
of one of thoso erected to Calhoun and
Tanoy and Davis, whom tholr own fol
lower! admit woro incurably wrong In
ovory question of their time and tho
Northorn mind readB l'aul Sloan's title
to a monument as clearly as John
What Is tho uso of trying to keop
calm and serene under such provoca
tions. (Jhlof Justlco Tanoy and John
0. Calhoun woro dead before our civil
war and 1 did not know that any ro
Bpectablo cltlzon of tho United States
would daro to dishonor tholr groat
names. Thoy were statesmen, not poli
ticians, and tho tributes and eulogies
paid to them by Northern men woro
full ol praiso and overtlowing with na
tional lamentation. Even Daniel Web
stor spoko with much emotion in his
beautiful eulogy on Mr. (Jalhoun. Hut
now at this lato day tho same old fa
natical cry is hoard that caused Now
Kngland to send John lb-own on his
hjbIIoIous and devilish errand. Tho
same malignant howl that inspired
John C. Whlttler to writo of Webster :
" So fallen ! bo lost! the light withdrawn
which once ho wore
The glory from his gray hairs gone for*
All else is gone: from those great eye- the
soul has lied
When faith is lost and honor dies, the man
And this because ho honored Cal
houn and In his old ago dared to say in
his speech at Capon Springs that a
Stato had the Hght to aecodo from tho
Union whon tho compact was brokon.
My father was from Massachusetts and
honored Mr. Wobstor above all men,
and was intenaely indlg'jant at Whit
tlor'B fanatical, puritanical verses.
That triumvirate Wobtter-, Clay and
Calhoun was his idoal of great men,
patriots and statesmen, and it is mine
today. My contempt for old Whlttior
is very great and none of his slander
ous etTuaiona shall ?nd a place in my
collection of pooma. I was surprised
to lind a lot of them In William Cullon

And now about that Scriptural enig

VIKWS OF MH. BlIAiY SANDHIIM.
Xlm HiiHtlinj; (Quality ol "Mark" antl
the llenovolont Philosophy of
Joel Chandler Harris tu World'? Work.
Mr. Hilly Sanders baa his own way
of looking at passing ovents, and his
cotntnents thoroon bolng something
out of tho usual ordor, ho is treated
with great consideration and respect
by tho rising generation In his com
munity. When ho comes '.o town, he
usually goes to the hotel which hus a
wldo und pleasant verundn. There he
la suro to tind a sympathetic uudlence,
which, in spite of tho familiarity his
humor invites, hus grout respect for
his opinions. His interest In politics
continues unabatsd, though ho pro
fesses u grout contempt for the whole
Uo is hardly over without an au
dience of Bumo kind ; for when he fulls
for u duy or two to como to town, tho
young men, and, indood, some of the
older onos, make, it u point to pay him
u visit ut his com fort U Die home, whore
thoy uro nlways sure of finding a warm
welcome. Uo drawa a very delicate
distinction, however, between hia home
and the tavern, as he persists In calling
tho hotel. At the tavern, ho leads
and monopolized tho conversation ; in
his own houso, it la with Jllliuulty that
he cun he drawn out. lie mnintnlDs
that it id discourteous fur a bust to take
hold of a suhjocl and discuss it in a way
to rido over tho opinions and viowr of
his guests. " Whou I ax a man to
dinner," he says, "I might as well help
myself to tho vi tiles fust, as to up an'
do all the talkin'."
Therefore, it Is on tho veranda of the
tavern that Mr. Sandors is at his best.
He fools that he has the privileges of
a .nest, and ho takes advantage of
them, lie mado his appearance there
recently after a somewhat prolonged
absence, and tho young men who were
sitting in its shadow mado haste to
place a chair for him and to luqttlro
about his health.
" Woll, 1 toll you," said Mr. Sanders,
" I've felt bettor'n I do, an' then aguin,
I've folt lots WU88. I reckon you'll
have to locate the state of my condition
eom'ora betwixt the ham and the shoul
der?sorter mlddlin*. 1 ain't com
plalnin'. I've boon blessed beyan' my
desorts. 1 Hung away my specs the
yoar they yorkod Cleveland uut of the
HulTalo beer-gyarden an' sot him up as
tho demmycratlo Joshway; l don't have
to hoi' my ban' to my year for to hear
myself snore ; an' 1 ain't had no call for
a third set of teeth."
"Mr. Sanders is the Coi ly philoso
pher wo have loft," explained one of the
young men, after introducing the old I
gentleman to a commercial traveler
from Ohio who was making his lirst
trip to the section of Georgia In which
Harmony Grovo is situated.
" Don't bo onjust to tho rest ol 'cm,"
suggustetl Mr. Sanders, giving a casual
but critical glance ut the btrangcr.
" Don't leave any fond, familiar names
off'n tho list; givo'cm all far play.
Don't forgit Mark an' Mack when
you'ro a-huntln' for tho ginnywlne |
brand and sample.'' His lone was
solemn and assured as bis clear blue
eyes onco more threw tholr search
lights on the fetrangor.
" Woll, Mr. Sandors. what Is your
system of philosophy . " asked one of
tho young men.
"I ain't wedded to no special system,"
replied tho old man, after a pause.
" You have seed men aforo no.'' wl' a .
wholo passel of walkin' canes?one for
ever' day In tho week, if need bo, an' a
gold-headed ono for Sunday. Well,
that's the way wi' me. Yit I'll not
dony that I've got a pi t system. It's
on wheels an' It'll run on tho samo
track wi' Mack'd. I dldn' Invent it?
oh, no 1 It was old In years long before
I was born, an' 1 ain't no spring chicken.
1 don't wan tor snatch no man's laurel
patch from him. Yoj seo, it's this
way ; thero come a time in the history
of tho world when men-folks thought
thoy'd cut a pur tier Qgger wi' britches
on than they did wi' nothin' on hut a
night shirt or somethin' of that sort.
Well, britches como into fashion, an'
Iben Satan put it into some folior's
head to put pockets In em' an' right
then an' tbar was hatched the philoso
phy that s ketched mo an' Mark an'
Mack. Mind you, I ain't bruggin' on
it; I'm jest a'giviu' you the plain
"Oursydtem has evoluted consider'
bul senco tho britches-pocket was in
vented ; it'd expanded. No longer'n
t'othor day a good neighbor of mine
got caught In usaw-mill and when they
unlimbercd the machine he want
nothing but a lump of clay, as vou may
say. Well, sir, 1 brung me an' Mack'd
philosophy to my aid, an' you'll be sur
prised to know low well I stood It.
Conslderln' my ago an' tho general
fooblo condition of both body and mind,
1 boro up under It wonderful well. It
may astonish you, hut I boro up bet
ter'n tho inan'd wlfo an' oblldrcQ.
TbtttS where iue un' Mack and Mark
have tho advantage of so muny people;
wo'ro philosophers by trade.
"Mark is specially gifted that way,
an' l in kinder envious of hid talent?
be jigged of I ain't. Ho hollered pros
perity when he woke up, an' he il go to
bed vellin' it. Kf he wa? ealled into
the l'ennsylvany coal mines tomorrer,
he'd bounoo aroun' amongst the men
au' wimmen that ain't hannled no
money wages in a year an' sing the
same tune ; an' he'd laugh an' joke, an'
hunoh tho gals wi his elbow, an' poke
tho hungriest In the short ribs wi' his
thumb, an' ax em why In the worhl
they wasn't spendiu' at least a part of
the season at Cooney Islan' or some of
tho other watorin'-plaees. You see
what philotophy'll do for a man.
" Hut Mark ain't the only hueklo
berry on the hush. There's Mack. I'm
reel fond of Mark ; but Mack coined
the Highest to hein' my kind of a
philosopher. Why, you can look at
that man's plctur's an see benevolence
007.In' out like ro/./.uin on the sunny
side of a loblolly pine ; an' of it's so in
tho plotur'd, what must bo tho state of
the man hissolf? Why, he's got a
smile that you co lid reek a baby to
sleep in. Oh, yet>! Mack's my kind of
a man of I'm to have a sesso in ohoosln'
apardner. I had a right hearty laugh
at tho way Mack hrung his benevolence
to b'ar on the Porto Klean tariIT busi
ness. It was like eatin a suet puddln'
after camping out in the hushes for a
fortnight or more. In gener'l, the
tar 111 Issue is calculated to gl' mo a
caso of the heaves, hut Muck has put a
twist on It that's new enough to draw a
" I had a right hearty laugh when
the hoys in congress lifted the curtaiu
a little an' gi' me a chanco to see the
ditTrenoo botwixt Mack's maxims an'
his morals. At fust 'twas our plain
duty for to have free trade wl' I 'orto
liico, then when tho sugar folks had
collogued wi' the sugared crowd, Mack
made up his mind that tho worP
wouldn't end of we only done a part of
our plain duty."

The difference of cost between a
good and a poor baking powder
would not amount for a family's
supply to one' dollar a year.
The poor powder would cost
many times this in doctors' bills.
Royal Baking Powder may cost a little
more per can, but it insures perfect,
wholesome food. In fact, it is more
economical in the end, because it goes
further in leavening and never spoils
Royal Baking Powder used always
in making the biscuit and cake saves
both health and money.
You cannot, if you Value good health, afford
to use cheap, low-grade, alum baking pow

do endanger the health. AU physicians will
tell you that alum in loud is poisonous.

AN APPEAL TO VOTICUS.
The State Chairman Asks (or a Full
Vntn and SirIch the lleasons
Chairman Wilio Jones, of tho State
executive committee, had iudued the
To the Demooratto Voters of South
In view of the present apathy
which seems to oxist among tho Demo
crats of this State as to voting at tho
general election, 1 fool It to bo my duty
ad your chairman to address you In
thib public man nor and urgo that you
all come out on November 6th and cast
your votes for tho Democratic ticket
from president to coroner. Our peo
ple have gotten into tho way of think
ing that when they have caBt their
votes in the primary there is no furth
er uso to vote. Hut thld is a very
dangerous policy to pursuo and may
result in great harm to our State. Our
State and county tickets are safe, as
the Republicans have put up no op
position at all.
Tho Republicans have au electoral
ticket In tho hold composod mostly of
negroes, and they have a candidate in
every congressional district In this
State hoping to have tholr candidates
seated by the Republican house. Let
ovory Democratic voter como out and
vote for the Democratic nominees in
his district and olect them by such an
overwhelming majority that not ovon
a Republican house would dare unsoat
them or oven consider a contest.
The Democrats of this nation have
given you one of the grandest, purest
and most brilliant tnon this country
has over produced, and the Democrats
of this State have givon you seven of
your best men as candidates for con
gross, and I cannot boliovo that you will
not come out and vote for thorn. Wo
have heard of lato various threats on
all sides that our representation In
congress would be reduced by a Repub
lican congress on account of our small
vote in tho general election.
Now, follow Democrats, do not allow
this serious charge to ho made against
you. WlLlK Jones,
