Ins reply is as follows : My Dear Mabamk : Absence and illness have pre vented earlier attention to vour esteemed favor of the 3rd ir.st. 1 now have Ihe honor to say that, vvniie ine question has not been tdjudicated, I think Ihe general policy of Ihe law being to exclude woman from participation, in such matters Iho signature of a woman leal estate owner is not to bo counted any more than it should be in the case of a minor. I regard the question, however, as one of doubl. When it comes lo the case of counter petition, however, the aw provides that they must be signed by qualified voters which of course excludes I lie opposite sex. Very respectfully, your obe dient servant, 1 . M. Miller. The richt of appeal and petition belongi to everybody under a free government, without respect to age or sex and is the only defense of the helpless. An abridgement of this right ly an individual is an act of violence. Is it any less an act nf violence when committed ljy ine Mule f llus is the liM time. probably, there has been occasion to bring this subject into public consideration. If ihelawsof Mississippi permit tho right of petition to Ihe kind of woman who will sign a liquor pe til ion and denv it ti the christian women of the commonwealth, this injustice must have occurred through inadvertence, and public indignation will demand a correc tion from the next Legislature. II a woman can petition for the sale of liquor and is forbidden to peti tion against its sale, it is a greater tyranny, if possible, than taxation without representation, becau-'.e it is a tyranny of a class over half Ihe people and against the interests of the whole people.

It does not require a genius to make money. The accumulation of wealth is, after all, an easy mat ter. It does not require an educa tion, breeding or gentle manners, and certainly luck has nothing to do with it. Any man or woman may become wealthy if he or she begins aright. 1 lie opportunities for gathering the nimble dollar are very numerous in this country. But (here are certain fundamental rules that must be obeyed. The first step lo acquiring a for tune lies in hard work. 1 could give you no belter advice than that given by poorKichard : "Save something each day. no matter how little yon earn.'' Cultivate thrifty habils. Make vour toil count for all you can. Always save some porlion of vour wages. anu men be on (he alert tor invest ment. If you do this wisely, your money will begin to accumulate, aotibie, treble, ana in a lew years, perhaps, you may be a millionaire. The beginning is the most diffi cult. This magnificent Lidies Home Journal of to dai was not born ini-iieugeu. Advancement was made from Iho first number issued But the beginning was right : the foundation was sure; and so to-day the whole structure is a delight to the eye, and its fortune is made. Lay a good foundation for your lortune. Be brave, be generous, be help ful, be honest, do not over work, keep in good health, cultivate your mind, be pure, anil lo Iheso add thrift, and you need not fear. You cannot, fail. Begin rightly. 1 would say to all fathers and I mothers, teach your children tho value of money. When they are old enough make them understand the worth of a penny. Fur the chik's savings bank in the play room to the millionaire's bank tic count is not a long stop. It. is short and easy span. Keep a bank oceount. When von have saved $100, or SLW, or y(iu, look abotil for a good investment. Do not take up this or mat scheme at a venture, but examine it carefully, and If you see your way clear, put your mon ey Into it. Real estate is usually a good investment. More money has been made in real estate than you could estimate in a day. first mortgage u, in nine cases out of ten. safe. But take advice on the subject before vou invest. Go losome good conservative man and get his views. I should advise the same course if you should put your money in stocks or bonds or rail way shares. In fact, I should urge, before you invest a penin-, that you get Ihe best counsel on Ihe subject to aid you in taking the course. it your nrst. investment pros pers, by careful management and by always being on the alert, you can increase your lortune by rein vesting your profit'. A man w ho had c.nly a few hun dred dollars left out of a fortune called one day at a banking house and asked lo see the manager, who was a man of conservative mind and fully acquainted with Ihe best and most profitable investments. Ihrowing down Ihe bank notes. he said : "Invest this for ir.e. Use your own pleasure with it. I'm going lo the country lor the re mainder of Ihe summer. I will leaV9 my address with you and you can let me know what vou do wiMi it." The man walked out and was not seen again br many months. His mouev was i'ld.cioiisly invest ed on his carte blanche order and began to accumulate. The house duly informed him, according to its business methods, of his good luck, but nothing was heard from him personally for some lime. borne months afterwards he pre sented himself at the banking house, rosy health beaming in his I ace, well dresseJ and portly. The manager failed to recognize him at first, but when his memory was re freshed he recalled the circum stances of Ihe case. Mow, this was an examtde of a nan who more than doubled his savings by simply taking Ihe ad- Vice of an exiierienced and relia ble man. And tins is nut a solita ry case. It is one of many 6uch thai happtn every day throughout the lengt h and breadth of our land. How did Samuel J. Tildrn at tain hi elevated position and im mense fortune f Simply by the ex ercise ol thrift and industry, to gether w ith a certain degree of common sense, the capacity for taking advantage ol Ihe chances throw n in his way and his own smartness for turning them lo the best account. It will not do f rany one lo tit down and wait for Ihe coming of to the accumulation ol money. I have myself some little knowl edge of the toil attendant upon the amassing of wealth, and I have Ihe highest and sympathy for ihe man who, in the face of adverse cir cumstance, turns his pennies into dollars, and his dollars into millions. THEY DID TUEIlt DlTfC Governor Stone, of Missis8:Dni. in his address belnre the Confed erate veterans at Natchez,t he other day. fitly expressed the feeling of the New South in Ihe following eloquent words: "I pity Ihe poor coward, if there be such, who apol ogizes for, or Ihe blatant braggart w ho boasts of what he did as a con federate soldier. He who did most only did his duty fo his count ry. He who did less" deserves its condemnation. The Confederate soldier, like Ihe Union soldier, owed his allegiance to his country ; and like the Union soldier, he fought and died for a righteous cause. Then away with' the cow ardly cant that pities and apolo' gizes, for Ihe Southern soWier be cause he fought and. fell in a cause that he beleived to be right. I as sert to day as confidently as did Yancey or Toombs or Davis, in' 1861, that it was n just and right eous cause, and that the Confeder ate soldier not only thought he was right, but he fought and died fir that cause, and is intitled fo trW same meed of praise, and of hohor, and of glory from his people, as is the faithful Northern. soldier who fought and died beneath the stars and stripes fighting for the integrity of the Union."

In an interview printed a Tew days ago Edison announced anoth er electric triumph which is the sensation of the hour among rtfit mal men, since they have every reason to believe lliat there is no mistake about the success or tlio importance of an invention an nounced by him. Mr. Edison, for obvious reasons declines for the present lo fully ex plain his newly discovered method' of applying electric power, but says that it takes Ihe street tracks and cars just as they are ; dispenses wiih cables, trolleys and storage batteries ; uses the regular motors under the cars; gels the electno' current from the rails in a perfect ly safe way ; can pick it up through two and one-half inches of mud, and can move any of the present cars on any of the exisling lines, or on a track costing one-third less than a cable track. and doit much more cheaply and satisfactorily than it is -'one by- cable or Irolley system how. , Mr. Edison also savs that he i building an electric locomotive o 300 horse power, which will apply still another new system of con duction without trolley to Ihe big railroad--, and move cars much more cheaply, rapidly, and safelv than a steam locomotive can. He says the cohesion of steel will be the only limit to the speed of his electric trains, and that wiih a triple expansion engine stationary on a solid foundation, every tweiv ly miles along the line, he will de liver horsepower to trains in mo tion at one-third the cost of produy inzit in moving locomotives. Such results as he claims to have obtained and demonstrated by the most through tests, means a com plete revolution in rapid transit tor cities and also in general railway transportation a revolution prom ising faster, lighter and more fre quent trains for cities, lower pas senger and freight rates and with in cities the disappeatance of Ihe cable slot, Ihe Irolley wires and Ihe gangs eternally tearing up and obstructing the streets to repair the tracks.
