bonus for something that alreaJj
belonged to them. New York
thrives on the money which the
6.000 banks throughout the United
States keep in that city. 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.

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.
'Tis ever thus forevcrniore
Until we are dust.
Good-night, Old Year, good-night

We are in the greatest measure
under obligations to Heprcsenta
tive Finis J. 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

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.

he would call up tbe resolution the

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. You may be

TRAINED NURSE
Writes a Letter to the People.
To whom It may concern: I am a
trained nurse of nine years' experience
in hospitals and private cases, and for
the benefit of the people of Union
City I wish you would publish my ex
perience with the cod liver prepara
tion. Vlnol.
"1 was completely prostrated from
overwork. 1 had no appeiite, could not
sleep, my kidneys, liver aud bowels
became inactive, and as I grew weak
er I could not retain either medicine
or rood on my stomacn, ana raisca
blood. The doctors said my condition
was critical and I would probably
die.
"As 1 had seen v inol prescribed for
my patients with such remarkable re
sults. I decided to try it. After the
first bottle I began to improve. I con
tinued its use, and soon began to sleep
and eat well; every organ in my body
was strengthened and became normal,
until it seemed good to be alive and I
was restored to perfect health ana
strength.
"1 advise all my patients who need
strength, rich, red blood, and flesh
tissue to take Vlnol, as it Is so far su
perior to old-fashioned cod liver oil,
emulsions, or other tonics."' Eliza
