Chickansauza Park.
Sept. 19 and 20, 1863, the great bat
to of Chickamauga was fought. The
'Odication of the battlefield as a national
military park, Sept. 19 and 20, 82
years later, will be an ocoasion of pro
found interest to both north and south.
Unanimous as was the good feeling be
tween the old Union and Confederate
soldiers who took part in tho Gettysburg
exercises, it will be probably exceeded
in demonstrate veness at the opening of
Chickamauga. More of the soldiers on
both sides than have ever come together
since the war aro expected to meot then.
They nre those who fought each other
on the field of Chickamauga till it ran
in blood. Now they meot as brothers to
oonsecrato the ground where comrades
on both sides fell and to dedicate mon
uments to the fallen.
It will be melancholy to tho survivors
to recall how few of the generals are
left to take part in tho exercises Sept.
19 and 20, 1SS5. Bragg, cotfmandor in
chief of the Confederate forces, died in
Texas 19 years ago this very September.
General Longstreet. who couimariflod
the Confederate left wing at Chickamau
ga, will revisit tho scene of his former
thrilling experience.
Soldiers from 28 states fought iu tho
battle of Chickamauga. Kentucky had
regiments on both sides. So did Mis
souri. Tho state of Missouri has erected
monuments to her fallen, and with per
fect impartiality has divided them
equally among Union and Confederate
dead. It will be news to many of our
leaders that the United States govern
ment has set up eight monumental
shafts to the memory of eight generals
killed at Cliiekamanga, and four of
those generals are Confederates Helm,
Dcschler, Colquitt and Preston Smith.
The Union ollieers to whose memory the
national government built monuments
are General V. H. Lytle and Colouels
iieg, King and Baldwin.
New National Song,
A song which we may hope will take
its place along with "Rally Round the
Flag' and the "Star Spangled Banner"
has been written by Dr. Thomas Dunn
liugli.-h, who lives in Newark, N. J. If
"lie new song is as successful as Dr.
English's gn at Trilby lyric, then we
shall have par excellence the American
national air. We need good patriotic
songs very much iu this country
stirring airs and burning words that
will thrill tho hearts of tho boys and
girls at school. Wo want something
that will roll on the air gloriously on
the Fourth of July, songs our Ameri
can boys can march out to ba'tlo by, to
victory or death. Who will write the
oidsr Who will write tho music? We
cannot have too many of them.
Dr. . 'glish calls his national anthem
"Old Glory," which is a very good
name. He is 70 years old, but declares
he is not done with the world yet,
whereat his countrymen will rejoice.
Dr. Kuglish wrote the words of "Old
Glory," and a friend, also an American,
composed the music. Tho refiain is
patriotic enough. It is:
Olil Glory, Old I ; lory!
Our banner ruii.I. I'M tilery!

No doubt many Americans are ex
claiming in their minds against tho
"unjust discrimination" of foreign
countries against American beef cattie.
They are apt to attribute it all to the
jealousy of foreign governments toward
this great and prosperous country.
Well, the report of tho United States
consul at Havre would throw some light
on the minds of these patriotic Ameri
cans. Mr. Chancellor says tho arrange
ments tor our foreign cattle shipping
show that common sense is badly lack
ing in the shippers. No proper provi
sion for the safety and comfort of the
animals is made, he declares. The im
portation of United States cattle into
Europe was stopped because the steers
came "jammed into steamers, seasick,
haltered, bruised, crippled and fam
ished." Consul Chancellor further says
that no live beeves should be shipped
unless they are provided with padded
stalls, swings and other appliances to
keep the lurching of tho vessel from
crushing them. Above all, they should
be shipped in tho care of "humane, reli
able and intelligent attendants, who
will not beat and prod them from
wanton and vicious cruelty."
The state of Tennessee has practically
discovered herself since the wau Yet
as a state she autedates Ohio by six
years. At the celebration of her cen

Tennessee will show that in the matter

she beats the world. If the spirit of
Andrew Jackson can look down upon
her next year his heart will swell big
with pride.

A Lay Preacher's Sermon, and
Profitable One.
a Very
One of the best sermons I have read
in a long time has been preached by
Eleanor Kirk in her "Idea." The test
is "Mine Own Arm. " She quotes from
Isaiah, sixty-third chapter, fifth verse:
"I looked, and thero was none to help,
and I wondered that there was nouo to
uphold. Therefore mine own arm
brought salvation unto mo, and my
fury, it upheld me." There never was
a difficulty that there was not away out
of it. Eleanor Kirk herself has demon
strated that, and she now seeks with all
her enthusiasm, "fury," the text would
call it, to make other women see the
same thing. Whatever wo want or need
in reason wo can get it in this life, and
wo can get it ourselves. Tho reason
that men have nearly all the power,
property, learning, influence and every
thing elso good in this world is that
they have simply gone and taken this
good with their own arms. Women have
hung back anil waited for men to bring
it to them. When men did not, because
they wanted it for themselves, ami
there was not enough left over to do
auy good after they got what they de
sired, women simply sat down and wept
and suffered in silence. Had not those
they loved bidden them always to be
meek and quiet and told them that was
the kind of w omen mcu liked best ? But
the time came when women were forced
into breadwinning occupations by the
changes in our civilizattun. They did
not want to go. They thought it was
not aristocratic. They lingered, shiver
ing on the brink Hll they were absolutely
shoved off the ragged etlgo into the
current of work. Once there they found
they could swim just as well as men
could, and they liked it. By their own
brains, thinking and planning by their
own hands, they conquer all tilings. A
lady tells me that she had always de
pended on others to provide for her old
age. She was approaching middle life,
and no provision had been made. She
faced the inevitable; then she pulhd
herself together with mighty resolve.
She determined that thence on she
would never depend on auy human be
ing but herself to take care of herself.
She would enter into business, get
money and lay up money. From the
moment she made that resolution things
seemed to come her way. The deter
mined will to secure good is the key
that unlocks all the treasures of tho
universe. The lady prospered and laid
up money and is already in possession
of a modest competency. Oh, my friends,
you can work miracles "by mine own
arm. ' '
A friend who lives on Staroti Island
writes: Mrs. Julia K. West, the school
commissioner elected two years ago in
Richmond county, X. Y. , has displayed
more backbone in ferreting out and an
tagonizing local evils in the eounty
sehutd system antl resisting tho encroach
ments upon her rightful authority of
the state superintendent's depart metit
than any man official in tho county.
She is now making a hot tight against
the state superintendent in the matter
of his recent decision declaring her
acts in a certain district rc.rganizut i u
case null and void. The superintendent
quotes law to her, and she .-ays .-lie will
give him more law than will plea.-o
him. Even her political opponents de
clare that she is the right person i -r the
place, because, womanlike, "when she
will she will and when she Won't she
won t," not if the heavens fall.

Miss Mary O. Francis, a talented
and plucky girl, fornifily conm ctotl

unusual business.
When a woman in New York il--s at
length find a foothold in journalistic
work, she is kept so busy that the work
she does is almost beyond human power
to accomplish, one would think at first
glance. Miss Frances M. Benson fur
nishes a case to the point. She is sole
editor of Tho Oueon of Fashion. She se
lects or writes every line i f that paper
and gets the illustrations fov the fashions
and other things. Besides editing the
paper itself she has also charge of thecx
tensive paper pattern department which
is operated in connection. There is not
a newspaper man in New York city who
can do more work than this energetic
and brilliant young woman.

Instoad of trying to pass an ordinance

Alderman Crabtree ought to have intro

residents of Chattanooga from looking
at tho bloomer women.

Contradictory Abortions of tho Calamity
SIowlerH Jut Tlicm Iu I-mlierous 1'osi
tious Ket-kl.ss Agitation About Wool.
It lias Come to Stay.
In their eager search for arguments
against the new tariff the calamity
howling organs fall into tho most con
tradictory and ludicrous position'!, savs
the Philadelphia Record. In one and tho
Fame breath they assert that the tariff
is ruining tho woolen industries of the
country and that the enormous impor
tation of wool is death to sheep growing
on the Rocky mountain ranges. They
next assert that the enormous increase
in importations of "shoddy" (which
they estimate at 1 ,000 per cent!) is de
stroying the production of woolen fabrics
a statement which may bo left to tho
slandered manufacturers themselves.
As the importation of shoddy was prac
tically prohibited by the McKiuicy tar
iff, this percentage- trick is as shallow
as it is dishonest.
But the organs do not mention that
tho imports of rags, waste, noils and
other materials of shoddy do not amount
to more than T per tint of the froo
imports of Wool under the now tariff.
This fact would completely destroy the
trick of percentages. NVr tlo they men
tion that the imported materials of
shoddy cost American manufacturers
by the pound per cent more than
most of the wool imported under tho
McKinley law. Nov yi t i!o they even
mention that the importations uf wool
now consist for the must part of the fin
est foreign fleeces, w hich formerly sel
dom reached the mills of this country.
As for the p ur wivdgrow ers, tho
enormous annual slaughter of sheep for
the American consuim rs of mutton is
attributed by the calamity organs to the
destructive i nil nonce of the new tariff.
If no domestic wool should bo u--ed by
American manufacturers, .--hoop growing
would still be profitable in this country
for its meat. Wiihmost American farm
ers who raise sheep i he wool is the least
consideration. But with the enormous
tiest ruction of domestic sheep, and with
the enormous importations of wool,
what has become of all tho wool if tho
wooK u ir.du.-trn
ly destroyed as the calamity howlers
assert ': Tho manufacturers must have
eaten the wool along with tho mutton in
order to engage exclusively in the pro
duction of shoddv fabrics! In their
