Old Man Awake* and Find* a Fire Burn ing. It is the custom among a certain re ligions sect in the mountains of south- Ii Virginia to make every prepara for death some little time before r demise. They are usually fore tied of the approaching solemn oc 3i) by a dream, or a presentation eh they believe to be of divioe source. The following story is told of a certain farmer, who, though he lived as blameless a life as most mortals do, was not assured of bis soul's salvation: One night in a vivid dream he was told that be would die on a certain day. He immediately began preparations for leaving this world, made a will aud prepared to go to bis future home One warm afternoon while strolling through his fields he became fatigued and threw himself on a comfortable hay stack and was soon fast asleep. Some small boys in the neighborhood, know ing of his expected death, aud finding hin asleep in the field, in a spirit of mischief set tire to the hay. Waking suddenly, theold man found everything around him in a bright blaze. Rubbing his eyes and staring! around him, he remarked: "In h—l at i Blood and Nerve Remedy An Explanation Wanted. The Public cailsattention tojthe fact that about five years ago, when Cleve land was running his endless chain for the benefit of Wall street gamblers, he notified Congress of his intention to sell $62,500,000 of unauthorized and needless bonds, and stated that if Congress would authorize the payment of the bonds in gold instead of coin, he' could get $16,000,000 more for them. The request was very properly refused, and among the Republicans who voted against tbe gold clause were Hspburn, Dolliver, Grosvenor, and the present Speaker of the House, Henderson. Now these same Republicans vote to pay these identical bonds in gold. The whole transaction was a swindle from start to finish. The Democrats have repudiated Cleveland for his part of the scheme, while the Republicans heap new honors on the members of their party who were concerned in it. Why do Republicans keep their ras cals in, while the Democrats turn theirs out ? Will some good Republi can explain V Bad Blood—Cure Free.

Johnson and M. S. Weaver have figured out that in view of the present high price of twine it will be cheaper for our farmers to have their wheat bound by hand. It requires, they say, 2i to 3 pounds.of twine per acre for wheat averaging 25 to 30 bush els, and at 14 to 18 cents per pound, ac cording to quality, the outlay for twine will be from 42 to 54 cents per acre. At that rate it will cost $1.68 to $2.16 for binding with a machine 4 acres, which could,he clone by oue good hand for $1.00 per day and board. Many farmers have help enough to harvest their crop without spending much for extra labor, but if they have not it would be better for them to give it to gome worthy laborer rather than to continue feeding the insatiable twine trust which is laying its hand so heavily upon them." The above we take from tht Warren Sentinel, and we commend it to the consideration of the farmers. We do not know much about the cost of uar vesting, but if the above figures are correct it would be well for the agri culturists to teach the trust a lesson by letting them keep their twine and at the same time help many worthy laboring men by giving them work.— Edinburg Sentinel.

A lady onco asked John Wesley: "Mr. Wesley, supposing that you knew that you weie to die at twelve o'clock tomorrow night, how would you spend the intervening time?" "How, madam ?" he replied. "As I intend to spend it now. I should preach this evening at Gloucester again at 5 tomorrow morning. After that I should ride to Tewkesbury, preach in the afternoon, and meet the societies in the evening. I should then repair to friend Martin's housi, who expects to entertain me, converse and pray with them as usual, retire to my room at 10 o'clock, commend myself to my heaveuly Father, lie down to rest, and wake up iv glory." Making Preparations. "I have just given an order, "he said, "for agatiinggun, a rifle, two revol vers, and a bowie knife." "Great Scott I exclaimed the other.

Bea/ - * liw Kind Yon Haw Always Bought An Illustration. Why should not a nation have the moral courage to do what is right? Holy writ gives us instances of the Jewish nation when the powers en throned turned from tbeir wickedness, how God prospered them. Why should not Britain turn away from its wick ed purpose to destroy the Boers and dare to do justly in spite of pride? What a contrast between this mercen ary man Chamberlain and tbe great Gladstone. There's millions in it for Cnamuerlain, what does he care for the death and misery he is causing. Just so in this country. The reward of all the death and blood and treas ure, of wretched lives, and torn hearts and devasted homes, will lie in rich profits to the few government officials and speculators who have chances in the commercial schemes they are working in the Philippines. The curse of the mailed hand must be kept upon the miserable Filipinos because Mr. McKinley and his beuchmen says so, McKiiiley, speaking through his pro phet aitd bench man, Beverridge, claims to have actually formed a trust with the God of the universe iv the matter of tbe Filipinos aud that these poor people are rebels against both the par ties to that trust.— Eastville Herald.
