YEARS OF INTENSE PAIN.
Jr. J. II. Ji'attH, druggist and physi
cian, HuriUxjl.lt, Neb., who suffered with
heart j iM-ii.se for four years, trying every
remedy and all treatment known to him
self and f-!io -practitioners; believes that
bi art disease is curable. He writes:
"I wiih to ti ll what your valuable medi

h art iis-ase of the. very worst kind. Sev
eral physicians I consulted, said It was
Rheumatism of the Heart.
It was almost un
endurable; with
shortness of
breath, palpita
tions, severe
pains, unable to
sleep, especially
on the left side.
No pen can de

during the last
months of those
four weary years.
I finally tried

THE NEWSPAPER.
WHAT IT MUST BE TO FILL ITS TRUE
MISSION.
A Veritable Storehouse of Knowledge
A Power for Good and for Evil, the
Press Should be in the Hands of
Honest and Conscientious Men The
Position Occupied by the Editor No
Less Important and Responsible than
that of the Preacher.
f Rev. N, II. Pittmau, in Lumberton Kob
esonianj The newspaper is policemen, judge,
lawyer, jury, statesman, legislator,
teacher and preacher. It mast report
correctly on music, agriculture, botany,
poetry, theology, politics and law. It
must rightly represent synod, confer
ence, association, legislatnre, alliance,
parliament, missionary tea, Christmas
entertainment, card party, circus,
dance, art levee, oratorical contest and
church services.
The newspaper must be a library, a
thesaurus and an encyclopedia. Its
utterances must meet the exact and
sensitive demands of a world of special
ists in every department of thinking.
To successfully manage a first-class
newspaper requires knowledge like the
wideness and deepness of the sea.
The newspaper is accessible to every
body. It was said of Noah Webster,
the man of the famous "blue back spell
ing book," that he taught millions to
iead and none to sin. As a teacher the
newspaper has not that golden blame
lessness which was claimed for old
Noah Webster; but the newspaper is
the inightest educator on the earth. It
teaches monarchs and presidents, sen
ators and congressmen, farmers and
merchants, preachers and professors,
mechanics and musicians, historians
and philosophers, millionaires and pau
pers, bankers and bootblacks, reformers
and thieves, sailors and pirates, clowns
and gamblers, saints and sinners. It
goes everywhere. People speak and
rulers listen. It utters the wisdom of
all the people for all the people. Nation
hears from nation. Friend hears from
friend. Enemy hears from enemy.
Wickedness listens to the wisdom of
goodness and goodness hears the voice
of folly. The merchant tells his prices,
the preacher his text, the jury its ver
dict. Here death brings its mourning
and marriage its white and floral glad
ness. Fire and flood and famine and
pestilence and war and panic here tell
their story of suffering among men and
beasts. Fortune, wealth, fame, relate
their triumphs and their struggles, their
extravagance and folly. Tragedy and
comedy ask for your tears and your
laughter.
He who is friternal to his fellow-
men, lie wno wouia Know tne nopes
and fears of the human race, he who
has knowledge and hope and love be
yond the shadow of himself cannot be
complete without the newspaper.
I think it was Thomas Jefferson who
said: "If I had to choose between a
government without newspapers and
newspapers without a government, I
would choose the newspapers without
the government." It may be that the
voice of Thomas Jefferson, the voice of
freedom, the voice of our "Declaration
of Independence," will awaken and
refresh appreciation of newspapers.
If religion has had its martyrs, so
has the newspaper. Freedom of opin
ion and freed mi to utter it may yet
give us a book on martyrology. To
the editors of France a French states
man once said: "Suffer yourselves to
be blamed, imprisoned, condemned,
suffer yourselves to be hanged, but
publish your opinion. It is not a right.
It is a duty."
In our editorial chairs are men as
patriotic as Patrick Henry, who said in
the face of frowning England: "Give
me liberty or give me death." As
true to their country's honor as Leon
idas, who died in the Pass of Ther
mopylae; as consecrated to all that
philanthropy means as was John How
ard; as brave as the soldier who never i
lowered his crest to an enemy. Such I
men cannot escape the penalty of being
somewhat akin to the apostles.
The newspaper is my friend. The
earlier years of my manhood were
spent in a newspaper office. For seven
years of my mature manhood I was on
the editorial staff of one of the best
religious newspapers in this country.
The newspaper is not the pulpit's rival.
It is the pulpit's-ally,
"But," says someone, "there are
bad and hurtful newspapers which are
unfit for the shop or the home." That
is so. His brethren sold Joseph for
twenty pieces of silver. Judas sold
Christ for thirty pieces of silver. But
Joseph and Christ have not thereby
lost our esteem. Against the home,
God's first institution, wrong has waged
unwearied war. There may be dis
mantled and hurtful homes, but the
home existed before sin came into the
world. It will continue to exist in
spite of sin in the world, "and to the
end of time true Americans will sing
"Home Sweet Home." Bad newspapers
supply the bad demand of bad people.
Our delight in sensationalism must not
lead up to neglect the clean and health
ful and homeful newspaper. The ex
istence of wicked newspapers ought not
to be a testimony against good news
papers. Many merchants are well aware that their
customers are .their best friends and take
pleasure in supplying them with the best
goods obtainable. As an instance we men-
tion Perry & Cameron, prominent druggists
of Flushing, Michigan. They say: ''We
have no hesitation in recommending Chain
berlain's Cough Remedy to our customers,
as it is the best cougli ruedicine we have
ever sold, and alwavs gives satisfaction." 1 aeanugs wiin me roau turougn mm re

SCANDAL MONGERS.
Do you hear the scandal mongers
Passing-by.
Breathing poison iu a whisper,
In a sigh
Moving cautiously and slow,
Smiling sweetly as they go.
Never noisy, gliding sinoothy like a snake,
Slipping here and slipping there.
Through the meadow fresh and fair,
Leaving subtle slime and poison in their
wake.
Saw you not the scandal monger.
As she sat.
Beaming brightly 'neath the roses
In her hat?
In her dainty gloves and dress,
Angel-like and nothing less
Seemed bhe, casting smiles and pleasing
words about.
Once site shrugged and shook her head,
Raised her eyes and nothing said
When you spoke of friends, and yet it left
a doubt.
Did you hear the sea ml a 1 monger
At the ball,
Through the music, rhythm, beauty.
Light and all?
Moving here and moving there,
With a whisper light as air.
Casting shadows on a sister woman's
a whisper, word or glance
As .she floated through the dance,
And the world is busy with a spotless
name.
Vou will find the scandal mongers
.everywhere.
Sometimes men. but oftetrwemen,
i oung and fair.
Yet their tongues drop foulest slime,
And they spend their leisure time.
Casting mud on those who climb by work
ana worth.
Shun them, shun them as you go,
Shun them, whether high or low,
They are but the cursed serpents of J tho
earth.
WHAT NEXT?
A few papers and a good many in
dividuals have sought to make the sil
ver question the paramount issue, but
they are greatly in the minority. Fur
thermore we do not want to be at the
mercy of the silver men any more than
we want to be in the clutches of the
gold men. Progressive Farmer.
The foregoing paragraph must have
been written by some one of the office
force while the editor of the paper was
away discussing free silver to some of
his Populist friends. Those who have
been constant readers of the Progres
sive Farmer during the past two years
will not be persuaded to believe that
editor Ramsey was in earnest if he act
ually penned the above lines. What
strange influences have been brought
to bear upon him since the new year
was ushered in? If we are not badly
mistaken the Progressive Farmer has
"sought to make the silver question the
paramount issue," and told its readers
that they could get no relief until
Congress enacted a law providing for
the free coinage of silver. We had
been led to believe that the Populists
would make this the paramount issue
in the coming campaign, as they have
talked about little else during the past
two or three years. But our Raleigh
contemporary takes issue w'th us and
appears to think that the silver question
will not cut much of a figure in the
campaign after all the fuss that has
been made over it.
Probably the leaders of Populism are
preparing to spring a new issue. It is
about time for a new one. They
thought they had found the panacea
for all the country's ills when they in
troduced the sub-treasury scheme,
They soon had to abandon the idea of
having the government build them
warehouses where they could store
away their produce and draw on it
They then got up a scheme for the
government to buy up the railroads
and operate them. This issue soon
found a substitute in the money ques
tion. Isow comes the Progressive
farmer and says that the money
question is not the paramount issue
The Populists' plan is to drop an issue
when it commences to grow unpopular,
What issue will they spring next?

the Eastern Part of .North Carolina
Would be as Healthy as any Other

IJudge
Walter Clark, in Tho Orphans'
friend, j
That is a fair land, with broad and
fertile acres on which the sun first
shines, as its rays fall upon North Car
olina. There, many and navigable
streams are commercial arteries which
defy the burdens which corporation
exactions can placeupon shipments
from less favored regions. For no
section of the State, or indeed of the
whole republic, has nature done more.
But it must be confessed that its ma
terial development has not been in
proportion to its manifest natural ad
vantages. The towns are not large,
the manufacturing element is not con
spicuous, its enterprising young men
too often remove towards the setting
sun, and few come from elsewhere to
build up fortunes and prosperity in
this highly favored region.
The reason is obvious. Ask any
man at random in Eastern North Car
olina as to the healthfulness of his
place of residence. His loyalty to his
town or neighborhood will cause him
to reply, in good faith: "There is no
healthier spot anywhere, but just a
little lower down ." As it is just
those sickly places a little lower
down prevent the immigration of
young active men from other sections
and hold back the development of
what is naturally one of the finest sec
tions in the whole Union. And the
obstacles could be so easily removed!
Those who have travelled West and
South and made enquiries know that
the valleys of the White, the Wabash
and countless other rivers in the
Northwest were formerly in the homes
of deadly misasma and malaria. Now
they are almost free from it. In the
Mississippi bottoms in places where
formerly a white man could not safely
spend a night, now white men reside
with immunity the year round. The
change is due to the fact that science
ascertained that malaria is not in the
air but it is embodied in the water.
Our State Board of Health took the
matter up, and proofs and demonstra
tions that this is also true of Eastern
North Carolina will be found in the
very interesting report of that board
of 1894. It is there demonstrated
that driven wells of 15 to 40 feet were
a great benefit to those who could not
bear the expense of deep wells, while
artesian and deep wells were a sure
remedy. One of the most interesting
letters there published is on page 207,
from Dr. W. H. L. Goodman, of
Franklin, Va. He states that when he
removed to that place in 1885 mala
rial troubles were prevalent. In 1887
the first artesian well was put down,
with an immediate improvement in
health, and now the town has twenty
five wells, averaging each a flow of
fifteen gallons per minute and over
500,000 gallons per day. The popu
lation has doubled and malaria is un
known. The wells average 140 feet
deep and the temperature of the water
is 60 degrees. In a letter since to the
writer of this he reiterates this state
ment, and adds that these are all over
flow wells, spouting up four feet above
the surface, the size of pipe two inches.
The water is light and can be drunk
in large quantities without any un
pleasant results. The average total
cost of these wells is only $60. At
that place, about oo feet below the
surface, a hard sandstone is struck
which is 12 to 15 inches thick. Below
that, clay, black sand and finally white
sand are passed through by the borer,
when the overflowing stream of living
water, pure and health giving is found.
While the particular strata at any
given place, or the depth at which
water may be found, may differ, there
is no doubt a belt more or less wide,
on our ocean front clear across our
State in which these chief overflow
wells can be put in by a little enter
prise, rendering such a belt absolutely
as free ftom malaria as the tops of our
grand old mountains in the West,
which are gilded by the rays of the
uprising and the setting sun. Between
this belt, where artesian wells can be
put in, and the foot hills which stretch
along from the falls of the Roanoke to
the falls of the Tar, the Neuse, the
Cape Fear, etc., (which geologists say
mark where the shore formerly stood,)
between this artesian belt and these
foot hills, deep wells of 150 to 300
feet can be sunk cheaply by the ma
chinery now used for that purpose.
The water will not overflow as in the
artesian belt but when the proper
strata is struck the water will rise to
within a few feet ot the surface and can
be pumpted up. This is the result in
the valleys of the rivers of the North
west and West where the artesian or
overflow wells are rare, in the cane
brake region of Alabama and in many
other places, and the water has proven
as healthy as that of the overflow wells.
It has made every community using it,
free from malaria. There is not a
spot between the falls of rivers and the
ocean shore line where one class or the
other of these wells cannot be put
in. Special machinery is built for the

seded. Our penitentiary authorities
on the State farms in the East could
not do better than to sink some of
these wells, at once improving the
health of the convicts and giving an
object lesson to Eastern North Caro
lina. With the success of a syste
matic movement of this kind for the
sanitation of Eastern North Caroli a
(which is approved by science and
large experience in ot er States) a new
impulse would be given to that part of
our State which would fairly revolu
tionize it. '
Some one has said, do what you
can for your fellow man for you
"will not pass this way again." With
that motive I have written this
for your paper, on a subject to which
I have devoted some labor and study,
in the hope that it will fall under the
eyes of some who will have the energy
and the public spirit to do for the
"Sun Rise" laud of North Carolina
what has been so successfully accom
plished for the public health in many
other States.

RIDING A FREE HORSE.
After Doing This Don't go Elsewhere
to Hire Another.
One Mr. Burns, of poetical fame,
made a nice remark about seeing our
selves as others see us.
Some other sage, philosopher or
statesman also said something about
'Consistency beiug a jewel."
Another trite sayiug is never to for
get the bridge that carried you safely
over the stream or words to that ef
fect. We are forcibly reminded of these
things by numbers of incideuts within
the past year and previously.
We can number our friends by the
score in certain emergencies that is
to say, when they are pecuniarily in
terested in an enterprise aud want it
heralded abroad in flaming head letters.
In such cases they cannot say enough
good things about us; but their memory
is very much like the old darkey's
mule awful thick hide and extremely
short memory. They forget that in
order to bo in a position to aid them
we must publish a paper all the year
round. To do this takes money and
lots of it, yet these friends, when they
get into a position when they want
work done for which they kuow they
will have to pay, they are not in evi
dence at this oliice. In other words,
after riding a free horse until he is
jaded they go elsewhere to hire an
other.
It may be noted, also, that even in
the way of advertising iu this paper
these people are not in it, and if per
chance a small ad is required to com
ply with the law, they often go else
where or, as the old fellow said "jew"
us down, or at least try it. Greens

Why She Didn't Laugh.
A little three-year-old girl went to a
children's party. On her return she
said to her parents:
"At the party a little girl fell off a
chair and all the other girls laughed
but I didn't."
"Well, why didn't you laugh?"
'Cause I was the one that fell off.'
The Forum For January.
Following- M. Paul leroy-Beaulieu's
notable article in the December Forum,
the January number of 27ie Forum con
tains "Some Sustentions on Currency
and Banking," by Mr. Adolf Ladenburg,
a promiuent banker of New York City.
As a panacea for our financial ills, Mr.
Laden burg suggests that the banks in
every city or small district combine and
form a sort of Clearinp-llouse Hank, and
that these Clearing-House Banks com
bine and form a State Clearing-House
Bank, and that the State Cleariug-Hoiise
Banks eventually unite and form a Na
tional Clearing-House Bank. He sai's
that when this is accomplished we
would have a central institution
of finance (dealing with its members
only) which would represent allthebanks
of the country and be guaranteed by
them, and to it should ultimately be
delegated all power to issue currency. It
would be a great central reservoir from
which every little bank in the country
would derive its strength to supply its
customers with bank-balance mouey and
currency, and under judicious manage-1
ment would cive a confidence and stabil
ity to commerce not hitherto experienced
in this country.

Mrs. James Taylor, who resides at
No. 82 Bailey avenue, Kingsbridge,
New York, on the 14th of December,
1894, said : ' My age is 65 years.
For the past two years I have had
liver trouble and indigestion. I
always employ a physician, which
I did in this case, but obtained no
beneficial results. I never had any
faith in patent medicines, but having
seen Kipans Tabulcs recommended
very highly in the New York Herald
I concluded to give them a trial. T
After using them for a short time,
I found they were just what my casa
demanded. I have never employed
a physician since, which means $2
a call and $l for medicine. One dol
lar's worth of Kipans Tabules lasts
me a month, and I would not le
w ithout them if it were my last dollar.
They arc the only thing that ever
gave me any permanent relief. I take
great pleasure in recommending
them to any one similarly affected.
(Signed), Mrs. J. TAYLOR."
