Old Times.
Ed. Register One lovely day in the
latter part of October, I took Old Betsy
on my shoulder and started out to kill
an old buck. For once, I took Old
Ring and Old Cuff the two dogs. I
very seldom let a dog go with me when
hunting for deer; but I just thought I
would let them go, as I wanted to see
Old Ring fight an old buck. I had
just got to where Mr. Wm. Thomson's
lake is and I saw, about two hundred
steps from me, a splendid old ten-point
buck feeding along, going quartering
away from ire. He stood in such a
position I could not just tell where his
heart was, but I drew down on his side
so as to hit his heart. It is very
difficult to get a sure aim when a deer
is going from jou; but I made the best
eruess I could, and fired. At the crack
of my rifle that old buck kicked high
and ran about a hundred yards and
laid down, right under these great oak
trees in Mr. Thomson's yard. The
dogs wanted to go for the deer, but I
told them to just hold on till I got my
gun loaded again. I could see the
deer all the time I was loading. After
I got ready I walked slowly towards
the deer. I could have shot the buck
again, before he could get up, but I
wanted to see a fight, so I let the dogs
loose, and before they could get a hold
on the deer, he was up and off for the
hills. As those dogs followed the deer
I could hear Old Ring's voice as he
ran. Soon I heard them make a turn
and coming back towards where I was.
In a few minutes I saw them all coming-towards
me; the old buck was hook
ing at one dog, then .at the other.
The dogs did not seem to be trying to
catch him, but just driving him to me.
As he came I walked oyer to them; I
thought when they saw I was there
they would take hold of him. So I
set my gun up against a tree that hap
pened to be standing near and told
the dogs to take hold of him. And
don't you think those dogs walked off
and sat down, as much as to say,
"here's your deer, now kill him your
self if you want him killed!" The mo
ment the dogs left that deer put down
his head and made a jump at me. As
he did so I just stepped to one side.and
as he passed me I caught bis left horn
with my left hand and jumped astride
of his back and clinched my feet to
gether under the deer, and away the
old buck went, and I riding him! I
said, "good, old hoss! I can ride as
fast as you can run." I tell you he
was a splendid riding pony. He car
ried me about a hundred yards when
he came to a little dry branch that
ran across our way. He made a jump
to cross the branch, but I was too heavy
for him, and he came short of the oth
er side and pitched head first into the
branch, and I top of him! As he
could not get up with me on top, he
tried to kick me off with hi hind feet;
so I stretched myself flat on the deer's
side and stuck my feet against his
hind legs close to his body, so he could
not kick me off. I then pulled his
head around I had never let go of his
horn and with my right hand got my
knife out and cut his throat; and I
never let up on him as long as I could
feel his flesh quiver until he was
dead, dead. I then got up and cut me
a good gad and I walked up to Old
King and took him by the nape of bis
neck, and I just gave him a good whip
ping; then went to Old Cuff and served
him the same way.
I found Old Ring was not much on
the fightbut he was a splendid tracker.
1 found that when a dog is trained to
run in packs he is not much good by
himself; and on the other hand a dog
that is trained to hunt alone is no good
with a lot of strange dogs. Well, I
found, atter keeping Old Ring a few
weeks, why his old master was so will
ing to let me have him, for a bigger
thief and suck-egg could not be found
in the State of Missouri! I tell you,
the women part of our family made
war about that dog. They could not
leave a pot or kettle any where that
that hound could reach it, but he
would have his nose in it. He would
sneak into the pantry, into the cellar
and milk room, if there was a possible
chance. He kept the women mad
night and day.
A black man came to father's one
day, with a team, for a load of pota
toes to take to Fredericktown. He
saw Old Ring, and he took a great
liking to the dog. So he bantered me
for a trade. He had a big hunting
knife, and he said, "I will give you
my knife for the dog." I let on like I
did not care about letting the dog go,
for I was afraid he would ask me if he
was a suck-egg dog; but as he did not
I finally told him he might take the
dog. and he gave me the knife. I was
most afraid to take the knife, but as he
was a negro I thought he was used to
just such dogs, so it would be all the
same to him; and you may be certain
the women folks were glad to see the
dog go.
I never liked a dog to go hunting with
me much, although I have had some
real good dogs; yet I had always rath
er bunt all by myself, all alone.
Well, well! I love to think over the
good old hunting days that I have
spent in the woods, and the nights I
have slept on the ground before a good
camp fire, and slept while my meat
was roasting before the fire. Ob, if I
could live some of those good old days
over, I think it would make a young
man of me again; but unfortunately we
can travel that road but once. Ob,
well, I think I got as much good out
of my hunting days as most men ever
did; so that's one comfort. T. P. R.
Oar Financial System a Failure.
Many of our readers find it difficult
to understand why our gold continues
drifting to Europe, and they wonder
why 70,000,000 people should allow
England to control their finances.
The fact is our financial system is a
miserable failure. England alone
holds $2,500,000,000 of United States
securities, bearing interest, including
exchange, of 6 per cent, payable in
gold. This is what London statistic
ians say. and they also say that France
and Germany hold $530,000,000 of
American securities. So we owe Eu
rope $3,000,000,000, imposing an in
terest charge, including exchange, of
$180,000,000 per annum in gold.
These facts fully account for the
steady flow of gold from this country.
About 10 per cent of the principal of
our foreign indebtedness matures eve
ry year. The principal is generally re
newed, but when Europe has made
bad investments elsewhere she throws
Americans securities on the market to
meet her losses. This was th e course
pursued after the Argentine collapse.
Foreign capital seeks our market be
cause we have not enough capital, and
the reason why we lack capital is be
cause we cut off our own money supply.
We produce more precious metals than
any other country in the world, and yet
we decline to coin the money metals,
which we have in abundance. A re
cent writer says:
We decline to coin the American sil
ver product, by the use of which the
entire cotton crop of the south and the
great substances of the west could be
produced. Silver is the equivalent of
gold in every country of the world
where the law so declares. It was so
in the United States when the law so
declared. All money is the creature
of law; there cannot be inequalities in
law between things that the law makes
equal. If the United States would
freely coin her own silver product at a
ratio to gold fixed by law, and endow
it with the same money function as
gold, the parity of the two would be
permanent in tnis country. A larger
supply of capital would be furnished
to carry our own securities at home,
and we would cease to be enslaved by
foreign power. The secretary of the
treasury declares that the cause of the
investment of so much foreign money
on this continent is our own inability
to invest from lack of native money.
We have the means to supply ourselves
with the additional amount, if we
would.
England, Germany and France pur
sue a different policy. Tbey hold
their own securities, and do not stint
their money supply to make a field for
the investment of foreign money.
At present we pay Europe $180,000,
000 per annum in gold for interest,
and if the annual maturing of 10 per
cent of the principal of our indebt
edness is not renewed, we must pay
an additional $300,000,000 a year in
gold. This makes an annual gold
drain of $480,000,000, and to this we
must add the $80,000,000 in gold spent
in Europe every year by American
tourists.
If this is to go on it will bankrupt
us. Our government, banks and peo
ple hold only $750,000,000 in gold, and
still we are foolish enough to make
gold our single monetary standard.
So long as we stick to it Europe can
disturb and convulse our money mark
ets at will.
The remedy is to remontize silver
and re-establish state banks under
proper safeguards. Free silver coin
age cannot hurt our European credi
tors who have gold contracts with us.
The silver would give us a domestic
currency that would develop the coun
try, and with state banks of issue we
would be able to carry our own secur
ities by our own means, like all other
great countries. This would stop the
outgo of gold and free us from outside
financial domination.
This is only a brief outline of the
financial system suited to our needs
and our resources, but it is full enough
to suggest something of the indepen
dence and prosperity that would follow
its adoption. Every great and weal
thy nation makes its currency for its
own use; it does not make it for the
use of other nations and then become
their debtor. Atlanta Constitution.
Miss Willard and the W. C. T. TJ.
The address of Miss Frances Willard
before the twenty-first annual conven
tion of the Woman's Christian Tem
perance Union at Cleveland 'last Fri
day, was remarkable for its mclusive
ness. The W. C. T. U. is an out
growth of the Ohio praying bands of
1873. It has since split into two bod
ies, one of which calls itself non-partisan,
and seems to be of little import
ance comparatively, and the other
presided over by Miss Willard, and
interesting itself, if we may judge by
her address, in a number of subjects
that seem to have little or no connec
tion with temperance. Temperance,
by the way, appears to be synonomous
with total abstinence and liquor pro
hibition in the vocabulary of Miss Wil-
lari's society.
The most novel of Miss Willard's
suggestions was her proposition that
there should be a new member of the
Cabinet, to oversee public amusements.
Miss Willard appears to overlook or
disdain the impohsibility of submit
ting the recreations of the people to a
Government censorship and direction
without an extension of the powers of
the Government to a degree that
would be an intolerable paternalism,
and would revive the old tyrannies
and absurdities of the narrowest sump
tuary and puritanical legislation. A
Cabinet officer fulminating against
living pictures or lithographs of the
almost "altogether," or suppressing a
skirt dance, would be an absurdity
that would bring contempt upon the
Government. Miss Willard mentioned
with approval the course of Lady Hen
ry Somerset, Mrs. Ormiston Chant.and
the other enthusiasts that have found
the bum of all iniquities in the "prom
enade" of the London music balls. Ev
idently a Secretary of Amusements
would have to be rigorous to suit her
notions of the proper discharge of his
functions. For the local supervision
of amusements she would depend upon
local committees composed in part of
women. It is not clear, from the re
port of Miss Willard's remarks, how
compulsory the programmes of amuse
ment adopted by these committees
should be. She desires that by their
means "the whole amusement ques
tion should be lifted to the plane of
reason and ethics as well as art." We
don't fully understand what the amuse
ment question is, perhaps, but a part
of it seems to be the somewhat inex
plicable desire of some people that
other people shall not amuse them
selves in the way they want to.
Miss Willard holds that "the saloon,
the gambling house, the haunt of
shame, are so closely t elated that no
reformer who studies one can fail to
see that all must be incorporated into
the same general movement." She
believes that labor reform must be in
cluded, and advocates a combination
of the Populists and Prohibitionists.
She believes in the single-tax gospel
and compulsory arbitration, and agrees
with the Hon. Kodomonte Sovereign of
the Knights of Labor that the number
of State and Federal troops should not
be increased. She favors the nation
alization of "all means of locomotion
and communication," and the owner
ship of the newspapers by the people,
that is to say, by the Government.
The Woman's Christian Temperance
Union means to cut a very wide swath,
if Miss Willard represents the inten
tions of that body, and not merely her
own opinions. N. T. Sun.
Caused by Falling Prices.
The New York Sun holds that in the
south populism rises as cotton falls,
and in the west it rises as wheat and
corn go down.
The populists polled about 2.000,
000 votes in the recent election, but
these votes were more in the nature of
a protest against the policy which has
caused falling prices than a sincere
indorsement of the populist platform.
Sensible people know very well that
the overproduction argument will not
stand. The world's population increas
es over 200,000,000 every twenty years.
Tho wheat crop has been growing
smaller for three years past, and yet
with a much larger population to con
sume it every year we find that in that
period the London price, which con
trols the world's price, has fallen more
than 40 per cent.
Hon. Henry Chaplin, a British mem
ber of parliament, hits the nail on the
head when he 9ays:
The more closely you examine into
this question the more you will find
that there is only one thing which is
able to sufficiently account for the
enormous and unprecedented change
which has occurred in prices during the
last twenty years, and that is the
change which has occurred, not in pro
duction, nor in commodities, but in
the value of money itself, and which I
believe to be entirely due to the great
monetary revolution which occurred
some fifteen or twenty years ago upon
the continent of Europo and to the
abandonment of the bimetallic system.
There you have the explanation in a
nutshell!
We can easily believe that populism
is caused by falling prices, and wo
look for still more disagreeable results.
Discontent and poverty are not easily
controlled. They will not be satisfied
with predictions and promises. They
will revolt against party leadership,
desert one standard for another, or set
up a new one.
It is unnecessary to be more explicit.
The republican goldbug and the demo
cratic goldbug are in the same boat.
They will soon discover that they are
leaders without followers. No politi
cal party in this country can hold its
followers if it sticks to a policy which
enriches the few and improverishea
the many. Atlanta Constitution.
The Congo Known From Source to
Sea.
The second in volume of the great
rivers of the world is known at last
from its main source to the 6ea. Sev
enteen years ago Mr. Stanley paddled
down the Congo for 1,200 miles and
handled his boats around 300 miles of
rapids. Since that time no part of the
world has been the field of so many ex
plorations. We are now indebted to
Mr. Mohun, our Consul on the Congo,
for filling up the last gap in the pre
liminary survey of the main river.
About two years ago Mr. Alexander
Delcommune followed the Lukuga
River to the Congo. The riyer was
long a puzzle; geographers were di
vided in opinion as to whether it was
the outlet of Lake Tanganyika. It
was twenty years after the lake was
discovered before exploration had con
clusively established the fact that its
waters flowed westward through the
Lukuga. In tracing the river to the
Congo, Delcommune did what many an
explorer has been compelled to do:
He applied the sponge to the map of
Africa, besides adding details to it.
The Arabs had said that the Lukuga
and the Congo' mingled their waters in
a large lake named Landjii. The Bel
gian explorer proved that this was not
so, and Lake Landjii is now disappear
ing from its familiar place on the Af
rican maps.
No traveler had ever traced the Con
go between its junction with the Lu
kuga and Tippu Tib's old town of
Kassongo, which several explorers!
have made well known. This is what
Mr. Mohun has done. Ho has added
about eighty-five miles of surveys to
the map. His discoveries are purely
of geographical interest, for thi
stretch of river adds nothing to the
Congo's importance as a commercial
highway. In no other part of tho
Congo's course have rapids and cata
racts been found so numerous and
crowded so closely together.
A while ago we could not have said
that Mr. Mobun's journey completed
the preliminary survey of the Congo,
because it was not then known wheth
er the Luapula or the Lualba branch
of the upper Congo was the better en
titled to be known as the- main river.
Delcommune's investigation showed,
however, that at the point where
these rivers meet, the Luapula sup
plies much the largest quantity of wa
ter. The Lualaba, not yet completely
known, is therefore the tributary; and
the little river Chambesi, which rises
near the northern end of Lake Nyassa,
and after passing through Lake Bang-
weolo becomes the Luapula, is entit
led to fame as the head stream of the
mightiest river in Africa N. Y. Sun.
