Stand and Deliver.
Robin Hood and his descendants In
ling and were romantic Knights of tho
road and made it. lnt< resting for lonely
wayfaring people traveling the high
ways. They rarely attacked other than
gentlemen and ladies In their four-in
hand coaches, and their earnings were
charitably divided among the poor and
distressed. The adventures of theso re
man'ic knights are the Christmas read?
ln^ for our lads and lasses to their ad
miration, inspiration and edification.
Prank M. Brown book-keeper of a Ken
lucky bank, has skipped with f!200 000,
the entire assets of the Institution.?
Alvord, of New York, stole seven hun
dred thousand from the First National
Bank of Now York, and Is now in ar
rest and will soon be wearing stripes in
KOino fashionable House of Detention
for BUch elegant gentlemen. But if
Robin Hood and Iiis bold moon-light
riders of the centuries back can learn
of the beautiful hauls of their modern
descendants, how they must envy their
glorious opportunities, while they blush
that their earning:, are gotten without
the gallantry and heroism anciently at
tending their vocation. There is even
S flavor of romance and heroism In halt
ing a train Jesse .lames fashion and
lighting for a hundred miles through a
wilderness to hold the booty. Hut to
loot a concern by the tamo process of
book-keeping should shame the hero of
a vulgar midnight burglary.

It is now thought that'll will not be
done. The Republican leaders think
they would Rain nothing by the course
President McKinley is also reported
Opposed to tin policy as it would inter
fere with hi', hope of a white Southern
republican pa ty. It Is conceded very
generally that the South would prefer
losing representation to restoring uni
versal ignorant negro suffrage. A mem
ber of Congress desiring re-election met
an old farmer who told him of his sur
prise that ho should want to go back as
his party wits usually beaten and ac
complished no good for tho South. The
politician suggested that allowance
f-hotlld be made for the big Yankee
majority, the voter replying that an
old farmer went into his cotton field
with a shot gun on his shoulder and a
rabbit getting up the farmer tired, al
lowing four rows for the rabbit's jump,
and missed the rabbit. And so it seems
that Southern Congressmen bag littlo
game except for a particular homo
measure when toadying to Northern
sentiment and Northern interests.

The cotton crop in our section is
about all picked and sold and the order
of the day is sowing wheat and oats.
There have boon a great many oats
sown and they are doing finely. If tho
woather is such that will admit there
will be plenty of wheat sown, and tho
preparation of tho land has been much
better than common. I think the farm
ers In this section are going to profit by
past experience. I think they have con
cluded ong ago that the shortest road
to bread is to sow plenty of wheat, no
matter what the price of cotton may
be. We were not at the wheat farmers'
association meeting, Saturday, llth
