THE EONfi AGE. We copy the following- able and interesting alhcle on till subject from Texas Farm and Ranch of July 10th, and commend its care ful perusal to our readers : "Classical literature tells us about the golden age, the silver age, the brazen age, the heroic age and the iron age. Contem porary literature and current ex perience tell us much about the bond age (the space between the words mav be omitted without changing the sense) . The golden age, we are told by both Hesoid and Ovid, was characterized by simplicity and purity; the silver age by voluptuousness and god lessness; the brazen age by wild ness, war and violence: the heroic age by virtuous aspiration, and the iron age by the absence of justice, piety and faithfulness. The historian of the future, when characterizing the bond age (or bondage") will tell us that during the period free men voted them selves and their posterity into slavery at the instigation of cun ning men, and for the hope of present erain. There is nothing truer in ancient or modern litera ture than the wise proverb ''the borrower is slave to the lender." And it applies alike to individuals, cities, counties, states, nations, internal improvement or irriga tion districts. If a courthouse is .needed and the question arises, shall we build a 85,000 house and pay cash, or a S50,000 one and pay in bonds, the people will vote for the bond issue. Bonds, are issued for every conceivable pur pose, and people will clamor for" their issue and curse the tax col lector when the 'interest must be paid the bonds are not paid, but refunded by issuing more bonds, and our children and grand children inherit from our folly a burden that never grows lighter The bonded indebtedness of the United States is a fair illustration of the working of this scheme for enslaving the people. Although the amount of the national debt has been paid two and a-half times, we now owe more than the entire amount, and there is hardly a hope that, how ever much we pay, it will ever grow less. The theory of bonded indebtedness is a cunningly de vised scheme to override the con stitutional provisions exempting the homestead from forced sale. In our state the home cannot be mortgaged directly, and,this pro vision has always been opposed by the money lenders. The bonding scheme is a device of the devil; acting through his obse quious servants, the avaricious lenders, to make the homes of the people security for their cent per cent. Most of these bonds are held in England as hostages for the tribute for which our people have become liable through their issue. It has already become a serious question with political economists whether this country can ever get rid of the burden which already costs between 8300,000,000 and 8400,000,000 a year in interest. How can the principal be paid when the inter est equals the net profits of our nations industry.'' JLet every body know that every bond issued constitutes a mortgage on every home within the county, muni cipality or district, and that the interest is tax that must be paid every year until the full amount of the bonds have been paid, and after all this, the same bonds and the same mortgage exists, and the same interest must be paid as before. It is perpetual motipn once 'started, it never stops. When the bonds get ripe they can be gathered, but another crop is always ready to take their place. This is called refunding A better word is renewing. And I fflllC thie lrfOrTT -vf flTOTArtinl r-lnt O . ery survives the generation that!

We were told a year ago, says the Sherman Courier, that just as soonas McKinley was elected that confidence would be restored and that prosperity would at once take up its abode with us. We looked in after the election for good times, but we were confront ed then with the proposition that better times could not'reach their fulfillment utitil 'after the inau guration. After the inauguration we ae told that we must wait till the tariff bill passes. So the Re publican party will go on setting the time ahead, for prosperity can never come only to the favor ed few under its extravagant, mercenary leader, Mark Hanna. The Greenville Herald insists that there never was any truth in the contention that it was the un certainty of punishment from the laws delay that caused mobs to break the neck qf rapists. When men place themselves below the level of, wild animals it is natural for other men, not rendered effemimate by the "refinements" of civilization, to deal with them as they would with wild animals. This may not be right but it is according to the nature of things. Hon. C. B. Bush, president of the ttilmrr County (V. Va ) Court, says that he has had three cases of flux in bis family during the past summer, which he cured in less than a week with (Jnamoerlain u uolio Cholera and Diarrhoea Eemedy. Mr. Bush also states, that in some instances there were twenty hemor rhages a day. Glenville, W. Ya. Pathfinder. This remedy has been used in nine epedemics of flux and one of cholera, with perfect success. It can always be dependended upon for bowel complaint, even iu itp most severe, forms.

Procure a bot-1 tie at R. E. Luhn's drug store. The St. Louis Republic pre dicts that the brace game being played against poor old John Sherman by Hanna and Mc Kinley will probably soon reach its shameful climax in the pathetic retirement of Sherman from the McKinley cabinet, aged, discredited and laughed at by his bunkoers. 1'rench Orpramlies worth "O cents will le cut to .1 cents per yard Onnfl Yards Imported, Demitj. worth AJJJ 15 cent, will be But to 3 cents Mr J nrd.
