WAYSIDE NOTES. The Union Labor party (not tihe Mc Glynn-Georgoorganization) calls upon the followiing, "without regard to sex," to elect delegates to its State Convention which is to meet on August 10, at Rochester. Knights of Labor assemblies, farmers' alliance, land and labor clubs, protective tariff clubs, temperance societies, agricul tural wheels, anti-monopoly clubs, gran gers and trade and labor organizations. N. O. City Item. The fortress of Gibraltar is declared to be no longer impregnable. The armament of the famous stronghold consists almost en tirely of old-time smooth-bore guns. There is not a shell gusn or machine gun, or quick tiring arm of any kind on the rock, and only two torpedo boats of questionable value for water service. Any ironclad could knock the whole lace of the rock to pieces without receiving a shot in return, so far as the fortress is concerned.

Timid Republicans, who, without looking into the matter, have supposed that there was danger of trouble over State rights if Democrats should be appointed to the Su preme Bench, may be reassured by Justice Miller's address. "The necessity of theau tonomy of the States and their power to reg ulate their domestic affairs" have been es tablished by a Republican Supreme Court, and there is no longer any issue between the two great parties on this long-disputed question.-New York Evening Post. It is quite evident that certain politicians are trying to use the G. A. H. for their own private ends. It would be a deplorable disgrace if they should succeed. "Noblesse oblige" is a motto which is especially bind ing upon those whose loyalty has been best proven. The soldier's record for faithfulness to duty does not lessen, but rather increases, his obligation to continue the example of respect to the ruling au thorities." He is not a good soldier or a good citizen who forgets the first principle of a soldier's duty.--Boston Pilot. No class of people born on foreign soil becomes so rapidly assimilated to our free institutions as intelligent Germans, and, having become part and parcel of the American republic, they haye become quick to see the cyil effects of uncontrolled immigration. They well know that the great majority, even of worthy people, from foreign soil are unfitted to immediately take part in the governmoent of the repub lic, and umore than once have they endea vored to secure modifications oftthe natura lization laws.-Chicago Inter Ocean.

"What ship is this comes sailing Across the harbor bar, So strange yet half familiar, With treasure from afar ? O comrnades shout, good bells ring outt, Peal loud your merry din! O joy! At last across the bay ty ship comer sailing in. Men said, in low whispers. "It is the passing bell. At last his toil is ended." They prayed, "God rest him well." "110o Captain, my Captain, What store have you on board ?" "A treasure far richer Than gems or golden hoard. Sl:e broken promise welded firm, The long forgotten kiss, The love more worth than all on earth, All joys life seemedto miss!" The watchers sighed softly ; "It is the death-change! What vision blest has given That rapture deep and strange?" "O Captain, dear Captain, What are the forms I see On deck there beside you ? They smile and beckon me And soft voices call me, Those voices sure I know !" "All friends are here that you held dear In the sweet long ago." "The death smile," they mnurmnured, "It is so passing sweet, We scarce have heart to hide it Beneath the winding-sheet." "O Captain, I know you! Are you not Christ the Lord ? With light heart and joyous I hasten now on board. Set sail, set sail, before the gate, Our trip will soon beo'er; To-night we'll cast our anchor fast Beside the heavenly shore!" Men sighed: "Lay him gently Beneath the heavy sod." The soul afar beyond the bar Went sailing on to God." LEAD US NOT. I think I will tell you about it, Mary. I have often thought that it might be easier to bear if I spoke to some one. Perhaps all the time I have been exag gerating things in my own mind, and need not have worried so. But it is very hard to speak about it; I don't think any one else can quite realize all the circumstances. I know I could not speak to any one but you, who will understand a good deal that I cannot tell. You remember little Hal. Though it was twenty years ago, you have not forgotten how bright and strong he was. Do you. remember telling me once that he had the look of a St. George with the dragon ? You could not have said anything to please me more. That is what I am going to tell you about. I had always thought that be had a strong face for such a little fellow. Not because he was handsome; there is some beauty that I am afraid of; but certainly his was not a weak face. I used to think it was an innocent face until-I mean, it seems to me, there was something better than Innocence in it; the look of a St. George. We were so proud of him ! and there was so much we might well be proud of. IIe was always bright and frank; never sulky; never Ill-tempered; he was gay, affectionate, happy with sim ple pleasures, seeming, you used to say yourself, Mary, as if lie would never have a fault. It is har4er to tell you than I thought; but unless I tell you now, you will imagine it something worse than it was; for I am sure, as I think it over with the wisdom I have gained in twenty years, that I exagger ated it; that I need not have been so troubled over a childish fault. I had been missing some of my money; sometimes out of my drawers sometimes out of my desk, sometimes out of my purse. Very little, of course; but I was always very exact in my accounts, and I should have known it a cent were gone. I thought, at first, that I had made some careless mistake in counting; but there came a time-though all this was in only a few days-when I knew that it could not be my mistake. It seemed impossible to suspect my ser vants-all old servants who had been faithful to me for years; and, besides, I had never been careless, and had al ways kept valuables under lock and key. I had, too, an elaborat, system of hiding my keys, whien had amused Louis as such a perfect "woman's way;" it did not seem possible that the servants could have made out this sys tem of hiding, even if I had suspected them of any willingness to open my drawers. I knew that any one from outside, If he had succeeded in opening the drawer, would have taken the jew elry and other valuables lying close at hand; for it was only a little-only a very little--money, Mary, that I missed. Still, it has been taken; and my heart misgave me. For only Ial knew where my keys were. I had let him see me iput them away, and had sometimes let him hide them from possible robbers. Tne agony I suffered when the thought first came to me was something that I cannot speak of even now. You know me well enough to trust me; to feel sure that I did not blight my child's soul with terribl, suspicion till I was sure. I cannot tell you all about that; but I was sure. And I could not let it rest there; I could not rest with lock inrg up things more carefully; I must know that the blot was not inef faceably on my child's soul; I must trust him. Of what use to take away temptation if there was that In his heart that would have been tempted? Of what use to lock my drawer if I could not lock my boy's soul against a demon ? Icannot tell you how 1 told him that I knew. Gently, tenderly-Oh, surely, Mary, you can trust me for that! When he burst into tears and confessed, one dreadful agony loosened in my heart; if he felt it, if I could make him under stand what he had done--surely I need not despair. I did not punish him; wehat punishment could a mother's heart devise that would not seem petty, compared to what he had done ? For it was terrible to me to know that he knew he was doing wrong. If he had simply taken it in some careless way without a thought, but that I would be perfectly willing for him to have it, I should have trusted to making him understand; but I knew that he knew; I knew that he had meant for me not to find it out ! I did not punish him, as I told you; it was far too grave a thing for punish ment, I relied on nothing but what I could say to him. I cannot tell you what I said, Mary; I could not re member now, even if It were not too sacred; but I think that God makes a mother eloquent in such suffering as that. I know that what I said moved him; I could see him shrink with shame, and 0, Mary, that was some thing, was it not? I could not let it pass or be forgotten. I did not spare him. I did not mean tospare him. I meant him to feel the lull weight of my scorn, and it com forted me a little that he did feel it. I could see him pale and shrink before my eyes; I knew it was not because he feared that I should punish him; I had told him It was too terrible a thing for punishment. If I could not make him understand the dreadfulness of doing it, there was no hope that I could save him by making him fear punish ment. And he did feel that he had done a shameful thing. I was very tender with him, Mary; I am sure I made him feel that it was because I loved him so that it was all so terrible to me. I put my arms about him and kissed him more tenderly than even I had over kissed him before. But my eyes never relented; they followed, they questioned him, they held him, with remorseless sternness. I meant him never to forget; I was sure that he understood. Every day he grew more thougtful, more tender, more frank and brave and manly. You all noticed it ;-how Hal developed that year. I found my. self thinking of that wonderful pro blem about sin in the -Pfarble Faun, and how Hawthorne thought that sin might have its mission in developing the soul. One thing that comforts me, in looking back, is to remember that he had never taken any but that money from my purse. Small sums were always lying about the house, on the sideboard, or the mantle-piece, or in the kitchen, ready for the gas-bill, or the baker, or the newspaper boy, and none of it had ever been touched. I felt sure that he had some curious feeling about it, not being exactly wrong to take it from me, who gave him always so much and so gladly. And now that I had made him understand that, I was sure that I had no need to dread an actual blot in his nature. No, not sroe; I don't suppose I ever felt quite sure: but I believed that he was safe. And every day when I counted my money it was always right. 0, Mary ! I could weep with pity for myself even now, when I look back upon those days when I used to count my money? It was not that I feared to miss large sums; I feared to miss a cent. It seemed to me if I had found one cent gone, my soul would have sunk with terror. I locked away nothing now; I knew there was no hope un, less he could see the temptation and face it. I was careful for him to know that not a bar or bolt was in the way; nothing but his sense of right and honor. I even sent him upstairs to my purse or money-box to bring ome little sums. I made him feel that I trusted him ; that I was sure it had all been some terrible mistake; that now he understood; and could never, never dream of such a thing again. One day I could not account for two dollars; I counted over and over, and tried to think if I had spent it without putting it down but I knew, O, I knew I was far too watchful now to have done that. I counted it again, and it was not there! I sank down into a chair almost lifeless. Then as ay eyes fell in closing, I saw the two bills lying on the floor at my feet, where they had fallen as I st'.od at the teble count ing them so feverishly! O, Mary! 1 shall never, never, again know such a moment of bliss as when I saw them there and stooped for them ! I kissed them, and put them in my bosom, and laughed and wept over them; and when I went out I took them with me and bought with them a great cluster of white lilics. And every day, every day for a whole year, the money was always right. Gradually I grew-not easy: I suppose I never could have felt quite easy again-but easier. Ialn grew in every way so much stronger, so much sweeter, so rnuc'h dearer; and there was that between us which bound us in a comradeship, surpassing the mere lve of mother and son. Then it came. I could not tell you about that, Mary, but you rememnlbr; how he was brought home to us on a stretcher, and there was no hope from the first. It had been a terrible ascci. dent-there was never any hope. 1 remember how calm I was, as only mothers are calm who know that their own misery must not add a feather's weight to the suffering of the child slipping away from them. And then he asked to be left alone with me, and you all stole away and left me kneeling on the floor beside his bed. You know how strangely wise the dying some times are; how clear our sight be comes for all that we are leaving ; and children, 1 am told, are often preterna turally wise. 1 knew that he was try ing to think of something to comfort me. He did not seem to need any comfort for himself; I did not feel that I must speak to him-bid him farewell-he did act need me, O, my God ! my child did not need me ! I only knelt there in dry, tearless misery, reaching out to him for all that he could give to me before he went. He watched me quietly, speaking as if he were feeling his way-not knowing quite what to say. "Mamma-mamma-you must not look so. You must not feel so about It mamma. I am not in any pain now. Mamma-mamma--don't Jou remember that you said it would be better for ime to (die Y" 0, Mary, was it any wonder that I shrieked ? In an instant I was calm again; calm to wave you back when you hurried into the room, in terror lest, if I were not calm, you would not leave me with him again; leave me with him for those last precious mo ments-I could not tell how few-leave me to blot out from his soul at any cost those terrible words of mine. I cannot tell you what I said to him; I do not know; but I think God tells us what to say when we are suffering like that : when a little child that He loves needs to be comforted. And all the time I was pouring out the wild words of love to him, I was battling in my soul for his life-for my child's life. I was praying - praying -praying - that he might not die. It was too awful for a little child to diefeeling that his mother wanted hint to die. 0, Mary, pity me ! And then beside-it was not wholly that. Now that it all came back to me, I knew that I wanted him to live to conquer temptation. I did not want to know that he was safe; I wanted to know that he was good. It he were to die now, Icould never, never know-never be sure-that he would have grown up a good man. Always there would be the doubt-perhaps he had that ter rible flaw in his nature. But if he lived, I should know, and I believed he would conquer. I wan. ted to know that he could conquer. In agony I prayed, "0, God ! give him the chance ! Let him live! let him struggle ! Give him to me a little lon ger-not for the sweetness of it, dear Lord, but for Thine honor and glory I! Let me teach him-let him live-O, God ! let my boy live a little longer I" But in all my agony, Maery. I never prayed as if to a cruel, angry God who was snatching my child from me; no, I knew that it was a Father who was reaching down from Heaven to take my child into infinite care and keep. Ing; to save him from all sin and sor row and failure. But I did not want Hal to be saved ; I wanted him to save himself. I was not praying God not to be cruel : I was praying Him not to be kind, not take my boy out of temptation till I knew that he could conquer. But suddenly, in all my agony, I heard Halt's voice breaking in upon my misery. He spoke so softly, so wistfully-hesitat ing always-watching my face, feeling his way to my heart ! I felt sure that his feelings were not really hurt-that he knew that I loved him-that he mnust know that f did not want him to die. "Masmma," lie said, "mamma, you say it was only once; that it was a lit lie thing; that I must not worry; that it does not trouble you; but, mamma, I understand; I know that it is better -mamma- " Ills voice grew softer, slower. I could not think why he was watching me so intently. "Mamma, do you remember that you left ten cents on the sideboard yes terday? It was such a little, mamma-" lie stopped suddenly. My heart stied still. MIy soul was frozen, dumb. I did not suffer-i felt nothing. All my misery, all my sorrow, all my dread slipped from me. lie hesitated-for the tir.t time his face grew troubled-as if wondering why htie had failedl to say what would make me see that it was best. I reached out my arms and clasped him close and then from my arms (God took him. But it was not this that I wanted to tell you, lMary. Not even to make It easier to bear by hearing you tell me that I had perhaps been morbid about it. I could not have told you, if this wereall; but what I want you to know is this: two days afterward I saw the little tn-cent piece shining in thie dust on the sideboard ! lie had not taken it? I fell in a dead faint on the iloor. When I came to, I still saw it shining -shining-shining-in the dust. 0, blessed little sliver star! I seizedl it, kissed it, hid it in my bosom; it is there still, Mary. See, here on this little golden chin--I wear it always. I want it t'i be hurled with me when I die. 1 never knew what was in his mind; wheither, groping in strange, childish fashin,m for some word to cenmfort me, he fancled, in some way, that I should be happier to know him safe from temptation, or whether he really had felt the temptation, for a moment and wanted me to know that he had conquered it. In my terror I had fro zen upon his lips the very words that might have comforted me. But God spoke to me. O, Mary, how good God was to me ! It was the bitterness of death for me, not that my child should die, but that he should die without my knowing that he was good. It seemed to me that I could only know if he lived-lived -long years and resisted temptation always. God could not let him do that; my boy must' die; there was never any hope from the first; but God pitied me! He let me know, let my boy be the angel to speak to me. He let me know that Hal had resisted once; and if once, Mary, my heart was comforted. --Alhe I'ellinglon Rollins in the Rporh. The Inter-State Conventon. The proposed Atlanta Inter-state Farmers' ,Convention should collate the experlense and practice of a large number of farmers all over the coun try; and by eliminating similar fac tore, after modern methods of arith metic, the essential factors in thie pro blem may be discovered and the se cret made plain. After such careful analysis and solution, we believe it will appeal that the agricultural press of the country, representing as it (toes the views of the best theorists and agricultural scientists, and the experi ence and practice of the best and most successful practical farmers, has been all along advising and pressing upon the farmers the very same suggestions and advice, and thus anticipated the conclusions that will be reached by the convention. It will be found that every farmer must "work out his own salvation." Co-operation merely for the sake of co-operation can never he enforced by any means in our power. Each farmer must be convinced that the system he is advised to adopt, the remedy he is asked to apply, is the best for his ease, regardless of what others may do. Successful co.opera tive effort among farmers can only re sult where the course enjoined upon each individual is the best that he can pursue independent of what others may do. Co-operation on any other basis will ever be a failure. Every farmer must be assured that his suc cess will depend on his own efforts, aided by all the light that he can gain from others. In no case will' his pros perity depend upon what others may do. We are hopeful of good to the cause of agriculture from the work of the convention. Such bodies may not generally accomplish at once the ob jects in view, nor give satisfaction to those whose interests are sought to be promoted; but they rarely fail to stimulate individual effort, individual reform and a spirit of independence and self-reliance, and thus accomplish indirectly what may not be done directly.-,Southern Curltivat(or for .Idull.

[New York Herald.] Every man in the North congratu lates the people of the South on the tremendous industrial gait they have struck during the last three or four years. They have tightened their belts for a long race, and in the course of the next decade or two will give some of, the manufacturing interests of the North a pretty serious competitive rub. List year-1886-was the banner year in the commercial history of our wide awake neighbors between the Potomac and the Gulf. The amount of capital represented by new enterprises in min ing and manufacturing, and the en* largement of old plant+, which were compelled to increase their facilities to meet the growing demand, reached very nearly the large aggregate of one hundred and thirty millions. This was a great advance on the previous twelve months, when only one-half of that sum was Invested. Kentucky took the lead with over twenty-eight millions, and following close on her heels was Tennessee with twenty-one millions, while Alabama was a plucky third with twenty millions. The other States brought up the rear-Virginia, West Virginia and Maryland with eight millions each, and the rest with sums varying from a couple of millions to a few hundred thousands. Thlis was not the result of a tempo rary boom which will leave the South stranded by and by. It was Indicative of healthy progress and Indefinite growth. During the first six months of 1087 the figures which we have named have been startlingly enlarged. Every city and' town is increasing in size; real estate is climbiing up and the promise of good results in almost all kinds of investments has attracted a large amount of European capital. It is very clear that the South has recognized the value of its natural re sources and proposes to make the most of them. Old King. Cotton, who for three generations ruled with undis puted sway, has found a mighty, rival in the immense beds of Iron ore which have been unearthed in Alabama, Georgia, North Carolina, Mtesouri and half a dozen other localities. In 1880 Alabama had a capacity for producing 130,000 tons of pilg.ron, but last year she ran the figure up to nearly 400,000. Tennessee gave a jump frojn 181,000 to 8i0,000, and Virginia emulated her ex ample by leaping from 129,000 to 278, 000. It is closely estimated that in the next ten years the Southern States will be able to turn into the market some. thing like 2,000,000) tns of pig-iron annually. 'T'here are also foundries, steel rail mills, carriage and wagon factories, lumbqr mills, agricultural Implement factories, cotton mills, and, in a word, every kind of enterprise which draws capital and Invites Immnigration. All this constitutes one of the hap plest omens of our national future. The old eoud which had its origin in slave labor and made it impossible for North and South to shako hands with anything like genuine cordiality has died out. It was the solo cause of the thousand misunderstandings which fretted and teased every patriot, and were the dismay of every statesman. Thclirobrand has been thrown into the Atlantic. l:very possibility of sectional dieagreement was extinguished at the same timhne. To-day there is through out the North a genuine and hearty pride in the dualsh, courage and tenacity of the commercial spirit throughout the South. We ourselves had in ear lier years the same indescribable ex perience of discovering that thie land under our feet is absolutely exhaust less in thie resources ii offers, and If we went wild over thie material develop ment of a country that semtnod -u te It continental horn of ple'nty the South will alpprecitoe our conditi(on (if mind, for it Is now eujoiylng the s:amu thing itself.
