They Differ With Each Other Greatly Some Outside Testimony That Makes Interesting Reading The South Can Manage its Own Affairs in its Own Way, Says One of Them. lAtlanta Constitution. J The Rev. A. F. IJeard, I). D., of New York, corresponding secretary of the American Missionary Association, who has recently traveled through the South, gies the following summary of the situation, as he understands it : " There are three classes of white neoole in the South. The first class look upon the negro as a fairly good citizen, but still its members refuse to accept him as their political and social equal. The second class would. like to see the negroes kept apart from the whites. They hate to see their colored brother advancing in civilization and think he should be kept in slavery. "The remainder of the whites are known as the lawless class, who want to wipe out the blacks entirely. It is to this class that the cause of so many lynchings is due. The feeling against the negro is so intense that it becomes dangerous for even a missionary to try and help the blacks. " The race question will never be settled until the whites agree to edu cate the blacks and acknowledge them as their equals. The last annual re port of the Association shows that ? 1 1,000,000 has been spent on the negrfj of the South. We send $1,000 daily to the South, where we have from twelve to fifteen normal schools to prepare teachers." We do not know of any locality in the South where it is dangerous for a missionary to help the blacks. Dr. Heard shows his unfortunate bias when he says that the race question will never be settled until the whites agree to educate the blacks and acknowledge them as their equals. The whites of the South are taxed to the utmost practicable limit for the education of the negroes, and it would be unreas onable to expect them to do more. The suggestion that we should recog nize the negro as our social, as well as our political equals, is too wild and visionary to merit serious considera tion. Dr. Beard's Northern neighbors and church people do not treat the blacks as their social equals. They refuse to live in the same block with negroes, and give them employment in only the most menial positions. How can they ask the whites of the South to do what they refuse to do themselves ? lut there are many outsiders who do not share Dr. Beard's views. Mr. 1'linn, the able staff correspondent of the Chicago Herald, who has spent much of his time in the South, says in his paper : "The savage instincts ot the negro manifest themselves in the South in two ways in murders and in rapes. These manifestations are almost inex plicable. They are certainly mysteri ous. The negro almost invariably commits a great crime in u manner which seems to demonstrate either his utter disregard for consequences or his temporary insanity. He either at the time does not know how to cover his trucks or he does not care to cover them. He acts with all the blindness of a mad man and all the ferocity of the savage. If his sight or his sense returns with the commission of the crime his attempts to hide it or to escape punishment are at once clumsy and childish. Cupidity almost inva riably drives him to murder. He is as likely, when in this fiendish mood, to take a life for a dollar as to tkae it fur a thousand dollars. That which drives him to the commission of the other and most horrible crime, which is frequently followed by murder as ! well, in the face of almost the cer-1 tainty of a speedy retribution, is a savage impulse, which is puzzling the minds of the best thinkers of the South. How best to deal with it is a question that has not as yet been satisfactorily decided. Lynch law has certainly had a decided tendency toward checking the evil. But the fact remains that it continues in the face of lynch law. In Atlanta and Fulton county the courts have dealt with it thus far in a sum mary manner, and to the satisfaction of the people, so far as the execution of the law is concerned." Mr. I'linn thinks that there are times when even lynch law fails to meet the requirements of the case, and he says that the good people on both sides of the Atlantic who are trying to stop lynchings in the South would change their minds if they lived there. This is the way he puts it : "They would soon learn that there are times when even lynch law falls short of meeting the requirements. Any man who imagines his w;fe, daughter, sister or sweetheart, or the wile, daughter, sister or sweetheart of his neighbor in the fiendish embrace of a lecherous and murderous black devil, can judge for himself whether or not he would be prepared to join a lynching party. People who shed tears ovtr the fate of the Armenians at the hands of Kurds and Bashi ta?ouks must remember that the people of the t 1 South have to protect tnemseives against savages equally as cruel and ferocious at times, and that were it not for the restraining influence of the rope since the war closed African bar barism would have subjugated white civilization in Dixie." The testimony of this fair-minded out-sider covers the whole business, and he is exactly right when he says that the Southern people must be left free to deal with the problem in their own way and solve it in their own fashion. THE PASSING YEAR. Mv door stamls open wide to-night, la token of a parting guest. Who twelve months since, with keen de light, I welcome to my homely rest. lie stands there now, wan, wasted, old. His race quite run, his mission o'er. And when the midnight hour is tolled We part to meet no more. He came to me in merry guise, With hopes and promises not a few ; Ah ! who could look within those eyes And deem that they were all untrue ? But expectations all have fled, The promises are broken, too, The hopes lie withered, crushed and dead Not one of all but proved untrue. And there he stands, decrepit, wan. Who came to me a merry elf ; A few sands more he will be gone. And with him gone part of myself. So come and go the passing years That bear us to the silent sea, But bright with smiles, or dim with tears, They come in love, Dear Lord, from Thee. THE DYING YEAR. It is with irresistible sadness that we draw near to the death of a year. It is like standing by the bedside of some departing human friend with whom we have held sweet counsel. One year more claimed by the past ! Another book of annual accounts closed ! Another volume sealed, and stamped on the back with those solemn words the past. We are always grateful that the figures of the departed year were not carved on the marble over our dust. They have been graven thus on many a tablet ; among them, over some friends very dear to us. Thus it has proved a woeful and heart-breaking year, for to some the past year has been full of surprises. We had no thought a year ago of being where we now are or doing what we now do. To others it has been a year of dis appointments and reverses in business : plans thwarted, hopes dashed. How could they have anticipated their woes? All this proves to us how closely we are held fast in the hands of God and led, unable of ourselves to come or go without His direction. Many errors there are of which we repent. We have all fallen short of our ideals. Some of us have repented and sought to live new lives. Yet the year has been to none of us spiritually all that we hoped it might be. Who of us has walked with God closely as our hearts desire and our consciences bid ? Who of us has worked for the Master in proportion to his love for us? But Oh! the grace of God has been very good to us notwithstanding all. And we have reason to bless Him for His loving kindness and tender mercy. Thou crownest the year with Thy goodness, and Thy paths drop fatness. The editor of the Concord Times has seen a copy of the bill proposed to be passed by the new Legislature for the control of the whisky traffic in this State, and for the enactment of which petitions will soon be in circula tion. The law is the one that is now in force in the State ot Mississippi, the salient points of which are that the ; applicant for license to retail liquors shall first obtain the consent of a majority of the qualified voters of the township wherein he proposes to do business, and shall execute a bond with adequate penalty conditioned for his faithful compliance with the law. Kindness From the South. I Korfolk Virginian. The Philadelphia Telegraph makes a feeling reference to the suggestion of sending a train load ol corn and meat from the South to the drought sufferers ' in Nebraska, and says that Nebraska says will not forget the kindness bestowed, and in giving aid to Northern sufferers the Southern people will be commend ing themselves to the kindliest con sideration of all right-minded citizens in every section. It says that " the broad spirit of humanity has been touched, and Southern men, them selves largely the victims of misfortune, propose to do what they cap to help others worse off than themselves. This incident will not fail ot general notice, and it will do much to helj- along that great reunion of the sections which has been the dream of statesmen, the hope of patriots, for a generation past. This is all very true, but it has ever been the way with the people of the Southland. Its people have always been broad-minded, liberal and true and ever ready to extend a helping hand to their distressed brethren, whether they happen to dwell North or South. In this particular case the South is happy to be able to give of its abundance the little the unhappy people of Nebraska so badly needed. The Discovery Saved His Cite. Mr. ii. Caillouette, druggist, Beaversville, 111 , says: "To Dr. King's New Dis covery I oweniy life. Was taken with La Gripte and tried all the physicians for miles about, but of no avail and was given up aud told I cout.l nut live. Having Dr. King's New Discovery in mv store I sent for a bottle and began its use and from the first dose began to get better, and after using three bottle was up and about again. It is worth its weight in gold. We won't keep store or house without it." Get a free trial bottle at Melville Dorsey's drug store. Rich gift of God ! 'J Wittier. A year of time! OUR LAW MAKERS. PERSONNEL OF THE NEW LEG ISLATURE. Names of the Members of the Senate and House of Representatives, Elect ed in November Many New and Untried Men, But Good and Con- servatlve Ones, Let Us Hope. l ne oest calculations mat can now be made indicate that there will be 9 Democrats, 15 Republicans and 26 Populists in the Senate. In the House it is more difficult to tell exactly the mt a i . . comparative strength of the Populists and Republicans. It is very hard to ascertain the names of the Fusion can didates who have been elected in some of the counties, and even when this is done, their politics is, in many in stances, an unknown quantity. At present, however, it seems that there will be in the House, 46 Democrats, 36 Republicans, 33 Populists and 1 Prohibitionist.

Mr. Richard Watson Gilder, editor of the Century, spent Christmas eve in what is called the East Side slums of New York city, ministering to the poor and inquiring into their needs. Mr. Gilder says he found enough of misery and poverty there, to be sure, but not so much of either as existed years ago. "I have covered the city," said he, " very thoroughly for the past few months and visited the very worst places, but I did not find anything like the squalor and wretchedness which used to prevail when as a boy I visited the Five Points' with my father." The conditions, he says, are steadily improving, and his conclusion is that despite recent developments the great city of New York is growing better. Indeed, he thinks, the world is growing better all the while. There is more charity and benevolence than ever before and men's hearts are big ger. Just why this is so is not stated. But the solution is not difficult, and may be summed up in one sentence the spread of God's Word. Besides, there is more intelligence in the world than ever before, and as men become more enlightened, better characters are formed, and as a consequence bet ter lives are led. It would be sad to know that as we grow older we grow worse, and that the evening ol lile is fraught with misery. llewiire of Ointments lor Catarrh That Contain Mercury, As mercurv will surely destroy the sense of smell and completely derange the w hole system when entering it through the mucous surfaces. uch articles sbo.uld, never be used except on prescriptions Jr6,iu reputatable physicians, as the damage they will do s ten fold to the good you can possibly derive from them.

CharUt Bell. A GREATLECTURE. JUMPIN' JOE OF CHEROKEE IN A NEW ROLE. He Does Himself Proud Niagary Falls, the Alps, Napolean and the Pilgrim Fathers All Shown Up in Their True Light, With Side Remarks by the Lecturer. I hev bin reshinglin, repaintin and otherwise improvin the lectur' which goes with my panoramy until it now stands forth a bold faced and enthoo siastic as follers : Pictur' of Niagary Falls." This pictur' represents one of the most notorious and succesful waterfalls on the face of the airth. It has bin rushin biziness fur the last ten or fifteen thousand y'ars, workin twenty-four hours a day and seven days in a week, and the performance isn't half over yit. I sot out with a detarrainashun to git thar or bust, and though a leetle old fashioned in some of its ways it has secoorcd the confidence of the critical public and established a reputashun ot which it may well be proud. Feller critters, as yer gaze upon this patriotic wonder of natur' let it be a great moral warnin to ye to persevere in the paths of sobriety, integrity and trooth. Thar's nuthin but plain water yere, nuthin mixed in and no nutmeg floatin around on top to flavor it, and even if ye own a saloon the moral is plain and can't be disputed. At the proper time I shall interdooce my jumpin frog and giv everybody present an opportunity to bet that he can't jump nine feet without any sort of encouragement from the undersigned." Pictur' of the Alps. "Thar ar' no pertickler moral lesson connected with this pictur, but who among this cultivated and enlightened aujeence kin gaze upon it without bein impressed by the mighty power of natur'? The hosspower required to heave up the airth and create sich mountains as these is sunthin beyond calkerlashun. The Alps, as nigh as I kin make out, ar' mostly in Switzerland. The idee was to git 'em all in thar, but it was too crowded, and a few had to hunt other locashuns. It ar needless to add that a fall from the top of one of them peaks to the vally below would seriously injoore any one not used to sich performances. My Cherokee sassyparilly kin be taken in conection with this pictur' with the happiest results. Warranted to tech the vital spot in case any remains to be reached." Pictur' of Napoleon. " This pictur' represents a critter whose career furnished the hull world a moral lesson to profit by. He wasn't satisfied with a good thing, but itched and yearned and ached to git sunthin bigger and better. He was makm his $10 a day and over as emperor of France, with the best of board and lodgin throwed in, when he got the big head and started out to round up the hull creashun. He fit and fit. and he licked everything he run up agin fur two or three y'ars, but just as he got ready to swing his ole hat and declar' that he was the broadest and biggest and heftiest kuss on the claim along cum an army which throwed him down and made dog meat of him. Be not too vain and conceited and puffed up. lie not too arabishus to conker and win new power. When ye hev a good thing, hold on to it and hev hoss sense nuff to know what a good thine ar'. Ambishun and enthoosiam ar' to be cultivated with profit up to a sartin pint. When ve eit bevand that when ye jump on yer hat and declar' that ye ar' the only critter in the world who weighs a ton and kin bite a railroad spike in two at one chaw, thar s a calamity gittin ready to stampede and run over ye and tread ye into the airth. War yer hat on yer ear like Napoleon, sot on yer hoss as ye see him thar, but don't let vainglor'us ambishun gallop ye up agin a barbed wire fence on a dark night. My magic cement, warranted to be the best thing ever used by a respectable fam'ly, kin alius be bought arter the close of each exhibishun." Pictur' of the Landin of the Pilgrims. .t Just sight of this pictur the gineral idee among my large and cultivated aujeence is that these pilgrim fathers and mothers hev heard of a , boom in America and ar' in a power-; ful hurry to stake out claims and git j two or three towns under way. That idee does them injustice. They ar' j simply in s'arch of personal liberty, and they hev cum to the right spot to find it.

Yere was a man ! who sot on the fence and thunk it all ; out by hisself. Hoss sense- told him that they hadn't yit diskivered more'n , half land nuff to make up a world. ; Sunthin warned him that America had I been overlooked and left out or the deal. He wanted to sot out and diskiver us, but he was laughed at and ridiculed and p'inted out as an April fule. He was dead broke and fur from home, but he'd got his dander up and dertarmined to hang on if it took both legs. He sold his cow, mortgaged his mewl and pawned his overcoat, and when the people at length realized his airnestness in the matter they cum for'ds and took a few sheers of stock. Even when he was ready to sot out every feller he met up with throwed him down, and he was not yit outer sight of land when the sailors threatened to put a head on him if he didn't turn back. Forty different times Mr. Columbus was on the p'int of throwin up his hand and goin out of the game, but 40 different times he bit off a fresh chaw of terbacker, called up his sand and made a fresh start.

But if our pathways meet 110 more In meadow-land or heather. Believe that when the uight is come We'll be at home together. So here's a hand that's true, my friend, And steadfast, come what may, God grant our paths ruu side by side And part not all the way ; But if it be that part we must God only knowcth whether There's comfort in the thought that night Will bring us home together. welCsaid. There is t. Vast Deal of Truth and Horse Sense in This. Stillwater (Minn.) Frison Mirror. It would appear that the American people love to have mud thrown at them, from the manner in which they toady and fete the snobs and would-be reformers Europe periodically indicts upon them. In the early summer, some reform society, who were never heard of out side the parish where they were raised, came over here to investigate and show us how to regulate, or prevent the necktie parties our Southern brethren, sometimes justifiably, indulge in, by sending out of the world in a summary manner, wretches who have committed crimes, some of which, have darkened England's pages for ages. Next a doctor, who is the author of a few books, comes over, sizes up a few Anglo-Maniacs ; feted toasted, lionized, only to go back home and call us vulgar, not up to things Lunnun, you know ! And now Burns, points out Chicago as Hell. Well, he ought to know, he was there two hours ; and yet can tell you more about it than he can of London where he has lived all his life. Who is this man anyhow ? What startling thing has he ever accomplished toward the improvement of the human race to qualify him as a critic of men or morals? He cried as he walked through the Italian quarters of Chicago. Wonder if he ever walked through some fort ions of the little Isle con tiguous to his beloved England? He would find sights there to draw tears out ol Sphinx. These people can never see their own faults ; they must come to America, and the sycophants will crowd around them, fete, and pass them free all over the country, and then calmly listen to their diatribes. We venture the assertion, from personal observation, that there s more crime and destitution in the White chapel districts of London or Scotland road in Liverpool, in a day, than there is in New York or Chicago n a week. it some American go to Ixmdon fur the purpose of investigation and criticism of the moral condition of its people and see how much consider ation will be shown him ; lake the platform and condemn their munic ipalities and he would e;ther be ! thrown into jail as a meddlesome busy- body or ducked in some horse-pond, and it would serve him right. He yfould at least be given to understand j that he roust mind his own business, j America is fast becoming the laughing; stock of all Europe. Aitators of everv ! Utamn rnme over heri t.rlrer iK.j suckers dollars, live higher than they ever did before for a few months, go home and laugh at the vulgar Yankee, The deuce of it is, :t is getting worse, Let these notoriety seekers pay their own expenses while in this countrv. Show them, if anything, that part off oar glorious country, of our incora-j parable cities, with which there is ; nothing in Kurope to compare, and ' not assist them in ferreting out the dirtiest and meanest side. They will form better impressions of the country and its inhabitants. At present they meet nothing but the vulgar, who stir up the mud to be thrown at them. Mr. George IT. Tuley Benjamin, Missouri.
