Itbasbeen estimated that about one-third of the people beat Ihe other two-thirds out of a living, and the estimate is not far wrong.

Congressman Doatner has introduced a bill td make municipal and State bonds tbo basis for national and State hank circulation.

Henderson, of the West Point Foruin, seems to be having trouble with delinquent subscribers.

Sunny South. iMr. Editor YiU will havelo I'Xcuso hip 1 his week lor I hiii sick. A lailv irienU ol mine tonl me about a J;nl v Incnd of hers ho was fullering nne nilit frutir a wretched headache. She whs a wrHche'l woiiuiiuiikI nhvavR knell brsiile her bed niul paid com-idcr-tiblufilpiil prayers before retiring, but on tlii iiiTHxinn flie Btmd up and said : 1 Good Lord, you know how sick I am please excuse me Iti-niirlil'' and lo bed rhe wenl. Treasp xcu-e me, Mr. Ediior, from willing my weekly leiier, for I am sick and llie doctor 8-us I mustn't w rite nur think for a few days, fori am threatened with sidleiiint: til tlio bruin ami 1 must not do anything lo strain my mind. Softeniiior ol tlie brain has been my apprehension lor a year it two. Ii is akin to dotage, ami is almost as bid for an old limn as hardening of 1 he heart is for a young one. So 1 will have to" suspend until ihe doctor ge's throutili with nip and patches me up. There is only one half of my bend affected now and one eve. At lir-t I fuQ'ered a pain in front, but now it has creep . . .1 .it 1 en over to ir.e cereuuium as ne calls ii, and I cun'l sloop down nor get up suddenly without a dash of pain fhooling all over my cranium. Il comes and it toes like those electric lights in Ihe slre-els of At lanta. Sol lliought that I would write you wiih Hie other side ol my head und ask lo be excused, for I dun t waul to strain tnv mind have been in bei all day taking medicine every hour and receiving calls and sympathy, and rummai insoii easy 1 1 1 i 11 tr. but have to be cartful about slruinini; 111 v mind. The doctor says lhai I must be calm and serene, lie askeu me what 1 hud beeiv reading lately and I told him I had been tryinu to keep up with the Unties trial 1 fftw him knit his eye-brow, for he was a Haptisl, und he said that Ilio abstruse melaphyfics of thai discus-ion was enough to tun any ordinary man distracted. I lold him us how before 1 he liriggs case wassi'liled theSmiih case came on as a side show and how Ohio turned Smith out und Mew York let Urigg slay, in, and there was nothing settled 111 a national way about inerrancy and plenary in spiration, and 1 Imd been si raining tnv mind to hud out what I must Ihiiik ur believe about the busi ness. ".Slop il," faid the doctor, "quit thinking, you will lind out .all about il in n few years yes in a tew vents, il von don't quil strain 111 your mind. Lt ihese absttu-e, scienlilicover educated gentlemen ahme. A the L"rd said lo Job, Who are thev that darken counsel bv words williout knowledge? Wheje wast I lion when I laid llie foundation of the eiirih, and where were the loundanons 1 listened, and where was the corner a'one laid when the morning slarsgang to gether and llie sons of God shout ed lor jov V " 1 hen 1 inid the doctor how I had been retidine upon -the tariff and McKinley bill and was Irving lo make tip my inind"' Irom a non puriisan s taudiinint, and 1 was very much perplexed and had strained toy mind lo determine which wu Ihe right thinti to do, lor il we reduced th lanll 1 tluln'l see how we rould eel enough rev nue 1,0 run the covernmciit, unless we pissed an iticomo tax and nil down ihe pensions, a:d I dfdn'l believe ihe Democrats would dare do either. This thins had sorter addled my mind, and right on lop of il I had to tackle tlie silver bill and Iree coinage, and had read what Mr. Fairchild said about H. He is a very smart aian. He said lhai f3.74(),0(0 ot treasury notes paid lor 4,500,000 ounces of silver under the Sherman net at 43 cents and the greater danger vf business was colossul purchases and hiive an immediate revival. Just so. I think I almost understand ihnt,btii il has strained my mind. Then I read what Mr. Si. John,' the great New York banker,said which was tho best thing lo 'do wis to find out what the Republican lenders want you lo do and Ihen not do it and how the irold mines were produc ing by 33.000,000 a year and rich l pen months ago I here were 17, COO.000 ounces of bullion and now I here were but 3,000.000. and Ihe great country was growing faster and faster and bigger and bijger, and we were obliiieil lo have more money and if we couldn't gel gold we musi hate silver and paper and go ahead ftreiiin and dump every thing into Hie boundless sea. 1 ex pect il was good Democratic lalt, but it ftMined my mind. The doctor looked solemn nt me and, sorter pitiful, and ilien I told him Imw I was tangled up over Jny Clould's death and w hat tlie editors and preachers and fotne of the wo men raid about him and I was si ruining my mind to locate him, for some of these days I expect to go lo that undiscovered country myself, and how 1 pot nome relief when I read the editorial in the Review of Reviews, w hich 1 appre ciate and enjoy more limn any modern literature, lor it is always fair and square and a man of my caliber can read il and under.-tand it without s trail ing his mind. "Did you locate him?'' said Ihe doctor, "No, faid J." But I lo cated the property. D is all busy in moving trains and trot ids and people and operating fhops where t herd are thousands of men nt work, and his money is siill run ning tlie telegraph, Hint so l.ir ns we are concerned, il makes nodil lerence whether the seventy-two millions were controlled by one man or by sevcnlv-t wo men with a million apiece. The Lord's hand is in it all, and 1 beliey e I hat Miss Helen will do some big lliing wilh her share betore she dies, and maybe Ueorge will loo. There are l roubles nearer home that worry me nmre than Jay tlould. There is trouble in Macon in ihe collece and one of mybest friends is in it, and there is trouble rmlu here fit home and two preachers are in i, and it has stirred up the lown and you can hear much and find out but little, and b.im Jones is going lo move away, and my waler pipes have bur-ted und there is a curtain down and no boy but mp, and the tax manrcame yesterday and took the last dollar 1 had in the world 10 help pay the coutt' expenses and lo educate Ihe everlasting ne cro; and we've been at it h.r twenty live years, and the more we do it Ihe more thev go to Ihe chaingang, lor there are over 2,000 there now, and only 11)5 white per pons, and 1 am tired ol Ihe experi ment, lor it is a failure and a bur deu upon us and is no good lor them thai 1 can see. This, is the biggest lax I hat I ever paid and I have less property lo payonlhau 1 tuvo, had lor five years, and here is the town tax lhai is on :hc same line, and we are tired of edticaimg other children, especially the black ones, and there iB loo much patri otism in our government, both Stale and Malional, and 1 know rich men who are drawing pen sions liom the ttate, and poor men who fought just as hard and just as long und get notlunsr, and the principle is all wrong lor no soldiers ouijht lo he pensioned but the needy, ami dial's my doctrine. I went down lo Atlanta lheolh er day to borrow $200 to bridge oyer the impecunious chasm and pay these luxes and a few of these darn little just debts lhat I owe, and one bank said they were mov ing the cotton and it took all their money, and another bank said thev only discounted local paper for their depositors, and Ihen I went lo Uiipiam Lowr.v ai lh 1 al ly ho bank and he greeted me with smiles as he always does, bul said that money was mighty close lhat day, bul that if I would come back the lasl of next week he would see what Iu could do. I haven't been back, fori am sick and I thought lhai llie captain would send il up to me by express, bill he hasn't. If a man deposits with an AlUuta bank he ran borrow some of it back occasionally wilh a tiood en dorser so George Adair told me. The lacl is 1 suspect tho-e banks havn'l any money lo speak of ex cept Ihe deposits, aud the Slate's money, and Ihe city's money, and Iheyare always qnarrelins about who shall have it. They harvest ed mostly oa Steve Ryan's money, and when & man breaks ihey hus tle round wilh alacrity to gel a re ceiver appointed who will help out their deposits. But it is a 1 noth ing to me so Ioi:g as I am playing L iziirus, and the dogs are licking my fores. 'Stop,'' Faid the doctor, "yon must not allow such imaginary troubles lo disturb your iniini. You nnist bo calm and serene, and "Rul I can'l." said I. "for I've been dosing wilh quinine, until 1 am as nervous as a man wilh ihe lonthasche. 1 haven't got but half sense now, wilh only half a h?ad you know, and when 1 get plum out of money I haven t hardly any. I want n bank, n whole bank, fnrabnuta week, I saw Ciptdn Lowr.v the other day uiiviug his tallyhn lour-in hand, and tooling his little lmrn and lie had Adlai Stevenson and his beantilul daugh ters and his retinue and posse com itntus, and I enjoyed it and wish ed that I was up there or in there, und ilo CapiiiiiiV. beiiminsr counte nance reminded me of the old WO' man who, lur ihe lirsl time in her life, WH'nt lo a circus, aud w hen iha beatiiilul horsHj, cmne piancinaiu wiih their spangles all shining and their riders nil drepd up like Ihe ncieiit knight, her old man huiicned her and sa'd : 'Sully, what do you think of I bul?" "Johu," said she, "hit almost lake my breath.
