Lane, beloved wife of Mr. T. P. Lane,
which occurred on the 29th ulP. She
was known and loved far and wide for
her many noble traits, lovely disposi

relation of life she showed her large
heartedness. As a friend, she was
loyal and true. In her home, her in
tense devotion to husband, children,
and the sister to whom she had been
as mother, was the beautiful part of
her character; a devotion which seemed
only to enlarge and broaden her sym
pathy with the outside world. Sad
indeed is the Providence which has
removed her tender care from those
she loved so well. She was a -niember
of the Baptist church and trusted with
an implicit faiLh in a loving Saviour.
Only for a brief space was she allowed
to grieve for the daughter whose death
had crushed such bright hopes. Now,
side by side, they sleep at Rosemont.

I highly approve. In so far as it "stand

against other classes, but only in the in

classes, no one endorses it more heartil;
than I do. I took an active part in th

Everything has its funny side and
the late storm is no exception. One of
our young men had gone to see his bess
girl Sunday night. He gvt home about
12 o'clock and went to bed, but the
storm was raging with such fury tI at
he soon dressed and ran for a diten
near the house. The ditch wasa raging
torrent. About that tine there came
a lull in the storim he retired again but
the storm increased and tile young

and untying his shoes that night, and
Burt Neil says he prayed so loud that
be heard him.
Harris' Springs and the Indian Doc
tor seems to be the rage now. One of
the largest men in tIe "Nation" who
seems to be a little stiff in the joints,
went to see the Indian Doctor this
week. He asked the Doctor if he
thought lie could make a new man out
of him. The Doctor, after quietly
looking him over, said: "Yes, I can
make a new man out of you, and have
enough left to make a 'pozsun dog."
Jii Hendrix was delighted and spoke
for the dog at 6uce.

No. 6 is all right. Her young men

farmer. and not a war on other elasses of
our people. 3y views on this subject
are imnehan-ed. Bat while I approve III
certain resPects of the Alliance, in other
respects I disapprove of it in toto. I dis
appr e of it. in the first pIn:s a errt
1O h-bo ."l organi::ation. i see no need
of secrecy in suoh im order if its pur
poses ue honest and honoraNe. Then I
regard it to, or the duty of. good citizens
to act independently and on their ij(di
Yidual judgiment as to men and measures,
m!,d not to be fettered-enslaved-by a
secret oath to act in a certain way. Then
I object to the Alliance as a secret politi
eal factor. Secret political organizations
have alwavs proved dangerous to free in
stitutions. Then. too. I object most Ser;
ously to the bitter warfare it is engaged
in wamng against other classes and other
important interests in the country; against
sound ard honest money; against rail
roads and corporations of every kind, as
if they were not necessary to the pros
perity and development of the country.
There should be no warfare between
our farmers and other important inter
ests in the country. They are mutually
dependent on each other for prosperity;
and any individual or organization that I
sows the seeds of hostility and distrust
between them, as the Alliance is doing,
is contrary to the interest of both sides.
Mr. Bowden seems much disturbed
about money to move our cotton crop. I
am inclined to think and hope his fears
are groundless. But if there be any
reason for them, it come in the first place
from the persistent efforts of Alliance
men and free silverites to prevent the re
peal of the Sherman law, which is the
main cause of the trouble in money mat
ters; and so far as we locally are con
cerned from such mischievous intima
tions as our Alliance governor has just
been ind dging in about a stay law. Let
that threat be carried out, and capital
will shun'our State, and our bankers may
be unable to secure money to move the

this is the manner in which it is to be
