Nobody oan explain this periodical
cry. Now and then tblsgs tighten, the
purse strings tighten, and money is al
leged to be scarce, and yet nobody can
explain or tell the reason why. The
usual remedy?economy ?- necessarily
enhances the difficulty, and makes mat
ters worse. When nobody buys and
nobody lends of course there is paraly
sis, and business is stagnant. When
times get better and easier and confi
dence is restored the reason is still bard
to Und, tho solution difficult. This
Beems to be the situation at the South
at this juncture with no particular rea
son to bo assigned. There is one way
however to partially relieve conditions.
It may not always booonvenlent to pay
large debts or to pay all small debts.
But things can bo kept alive and mov
ing by every man paying as far as he
can. A morchant having a hundred
claims of a hundred dollars each if he
is receiving daily ten. twenty-five and
fifty per ce~nt. of them, oan keep up his
bank oredit, keep his business alive,
and accomodate his eustomera with
credit. And so with overv Hoe of bus
iness. "When the cry of bard times
comes then lot overy man who can,
help to relieve tho situation?it is no
time to retreat to the cellar when the
cry ot fire tills the air.
Tho President and our good Gover
nor MeSweoney, set apart to-morrow
as a day of Thanksgiving for all our
people. We all have reason to be
thankful?and for a thousand thing?.
Some will go to the ohurch with
grateful hearts for untold blessings;
Some will tenderly remember tho poor
ot God's creatures and contribute if
never so little towards helping them to
think better of tho world; some, young,
strong and hopeful) under the restraint
of usoful employment, will go out to
take in the (ields, tho woods and tho
glorious sunshine. The Adveutibkk
bespeaks for every one a day to be
chalked with glowing color.
A New Treaty.
Lord Paunceforte, Minister from
Great Britain to this Goverment,
brought over a New Treaty, abolishing
the Lytton-Bulwer treaty and giving
the United States control of the pro
Fiosed isthmian Canah It now looks
ike tho canal might be built. How
far the great Railroad lords who own
and control tho trans-continental lines
to the Pacllic may be able to persuade
Senators, remains to be seen. Should
the enterprise be carried out, In mag
nitude, it will eclipse anything in the
past, and set the pace for tho 20th cen
tury on a mammoth scale.
A broom Factory has never been

should be a day of small things, and
the day of big tbiogs would follow.

F. A. WEHM AN, OF BALTIMORE, 8AY8:
Baltimorr, Md., March 30, 1901.
Gtntltmtn 1 ? Being entirely cured of deafness, thanks to your treatment, I will now gire you
? full history of my case, to be used at your discretion.
About five years ago my right ear began t> sing, and this kept on getting worse, until I lost
my hearing in this ear entirely.
I underwent a treatment for catarrh, for three months, without any success, consulted a num
ber of physicians, among others, the most eminent car specialist of this city, who told me that
only an operation could holp me, and even that only temporarily, that the bead noises would
then cease, but the hearing in the affected ear would be lost forever.
I then saw your advertisement accidentally in a New York paper, and ordered your treat
ment. After I bad used it only a few days according to your directions, the noises ceased, and
to-day. after five weeks, my hearing in the diseased ear has fcc?n entirely restored. I thank you
heartily aud beg to remain very truiy yours,
