Compared with Philadelphia and eome other leading towns New' York produces of itself relatively very little wealth. But it uses the money of 80,000,000 people. The cash which New York sends South and West to move crops every autumn is cash which the banks from those sections have loaned in Wall street. It is not New York's money, al though, judging from that town's comments, anyone not familiar with the true facts might suppose otherwise. Now we witness the spectacle of America's so-called financial center being the only spot where a premium is paid for cur rency. The reason is because that city suffers a money famine, since the rest of the country has with drawn only a part of the cash which it had been lending there. What would happen if the right ful owners should take all that bo- longs to them may only be imag ined." There would be a crash, from which the whole country would suffer. But so long as the money from other communities, other banks, is tied up in New York, so long will there be a money panic in those communi ties. And not until local banks resume unreserved payment of currency will confluence be re stored. The situation as to money does not look encouraging so long as New York pays a premium for currency. Nashville American. An Oda to the Passing Year. I The winter winds blow warm to-day, Isrinjfing great white flakes of snow White as the souls of paradise; Souls I've loved always. ii Sweeping the year away forever, Tbe wluds from the South to-day, With an Orient sweetness, Drifting tideward In dreams Of what the old year has been to me. in Each and each, by kisses wedded, The old on the new drifting Into the tioal farewell One Into life the other Forever pierced with a dagger bright A resurrection and a burial Of the Old Year to-night. The flowers I bring this eve For thy bier bo white Are the forget-me-nots of heaven God's gifts I place upon thy brow With a lingering caress Wishing that 1 could bid thee stay, For I fain would keep thee Old Year that's passing now. The new 1 welcome not; Untried it fetters me A tangled web, a mystery With too much warp And skeins too many and hard I fear for me to tread the way, Yet destiny beckons onward.

Garrett for the intro duction pf a bill asking for an ap propriation with which to secure a site and erect a public building in Union City. Ihe largest amount of postal revenues in the entire Congressional District are received at Union City. It is the only place having city delivery, and is there fore entitled to a Government post office building. We sincerely trust that Mr. Garrett will be able to secure the passage of the bill. Of course we know that our Con cressman with the minority in Congress is placed at a great dis advantage, but that he will do his dutv honestly and fearlessly no man has the temerity to question. Whatever his views upon any pub lic question he has our pr found confidence in his sincerity. MONEY IN NEW YORK. When about two mouths ago the failure of certain banks in New York caused a panic the bnks all over the country began to with draw their deposits from New York. This cash did not belong to Wall street or New York, but was merely kept on deposit there and its owners had aright to with draw it nny time. But the banks there refused to let it go. As the Philadelphia Tress says: "One might suppose from the cries that come from Wall street that the 6,000 banks not in that town were committing a crime by demanding their ewn money. As a matter of fact the New York banks locked their doors and refused to permit outside banks to get their own money except by paying a large ON BEADING BOOKS. Within certain limits spontanei ty is the best of all principles in reading Provided that the proper supervision has been exercised to eliminate the unfit and trival, boys and girls might as well be left to shift for themselves" in libraries and catalogues. The thing that particularly attracts them, is the thing that they should read. Girls re often forced to waste time on nsipid and colories stories, where-1 as it is books of healthy adventure, travel, description and biography that they crave for, envying the happier brpthers and boy friends who have access to such stimulating works. In the matter of classics greater discrimination should be exercis ed, ., Some standard books should be excluded from school reading because they are too profound and vital to be "sacrificed" in the name of culture. They can dispense with compulsion when the readers are fit to enjoy them. The fear that they might never be read at all is not wholly groundless, perhaps, as things are, but the college pro fessors and critics and other liter ary guides anu irienas 01 young readers cun do much to remove that danger. However, the great fact remains that all great literature is good for all ages and meant for all. The same book will yield a certain kind and amount of pleasure at 18, and a different degree of pleasure at 40 or later. They are men who read "Don Quixote" every five or ten yeara or so, and they never find it "unsuitable." Tbe same is true -;f Shakespeare, of Milton, of the great histories and biographies. It is, of course, pre-eminently true of the Bible. Indeed, the litera ture that is limited to this or that age is of the special and techinal kind that scarcely deserves to be classed as literature. And it is the reading and re-reading, the assimi lation and enjoyment of the best in literature that should be fostered among men and women of all ages and environments. Indianapolis Star. Get our prices on all Building Stone, &c. BQM Democrats Determined- Washington, Dec. 21. Demo cratic leaders in Congress are de termined to pass the Clayton reso lution declaring against a third term. Senator Culberson will press the resolution for adoption in the up per branch of the national legisla ture. As a majority of the lie publican Congressmen favor the nomination of Speaker Cannon, and many of the Republicans Sena tors are opposed to the President, there is little doubt that it will go through. Mr.Clayton declared to-day that uesf 0f SemOlieS & Sons Foundry. he would call up tbe resolution the nrst thing when tongress recon venes. Representative Ileflin. of A&- bama,to-day stated that one reason why the Clayton resolution should be passed was to make certain that President Roosevelt was not re nominated in Chicago next June. "The resolution went home to the President," said the speaker, "for he straighway repeated what he had said on election night 1904. It is possible that the President hastened to repeat this statement in the hope that the Clayton reso lution would be dropped. Then, if tbe Republicans nominate him against his wishes, there would be no condemnation of such a course by Congress. The President could then say it was up to Congress,and no action was taken.
