fully aid in any legitimate en
terprise that would arrest the
stringency that the banks have
brought upon the country, we
are inclined to view this move,
as in violation of law, in support
of which opinion we quote from
the General Statutes :
Section .1078-"No body pol
itic or corporate within this
State, shall bc allowed to issue
any bills of credit in the nature
of a circulating medium, or other
than such as answer the purpose
of contracts, under penalty of
$10 for each and every dollar is
sued. Provided, nevertheless,
That tins clause shall not be so
construed as to effect the char
tered rights of any banking insti

rated by an act of the Legista
If, however, we are wrong in
our legal view of the situation,
we think tho expedient of doubt
ful propriety, and warn our
friends if they can't get lawful
money for their cotton to let it
lie oil the plantation. Pay up
your indebtedness either in cot
ton or currency, and take no
script from anybody and you
will be safe.-Florence lief or m

Tho ofliccr understood tho joke,
and replied :
"All right, general."
"Tho Arkansas mau, exhibiting
no '.hum, said :
''?Bile mo a ham. eap'n, stew up
a couple o' chickens, bake two or|
three hoe cakes, fetch a gallon o'
