It is the game old friend to which the old folks pinned their faith and were never dis appointed. But another good recom mendation for it is, that it is better than Pills, never gripes, never weak ens, but works in such an easv and natural way, just like nature itself, that reiiet comes quick and sure, and one feels new all over. It never fails. Everybody needs take a liver remedy, and everyone should take only Sim mons Liver Regulator. lie sure you get it. The Red Z is 011 the wrapper. J. II. Zeiliu & Co., Philadelphia. LOOK HIGH, OH SOUL. "Look Iiigh, O soul : for what is earth but dust, And the lleeting shadow of better things ? The heavens are thine if thou wilt use thy wings, And sighs are songs if thou Avilt only trust. "Aim high, O soul : for on the higher forms Is alwavs room. The lower walks are filled. Who climbs the heights will find earth's noises stilled And sweet calm and peace above the storms. "Re high, O soul ; scorn that which is low and base. 'Child of a King,' they call thee. Ee a king ; And troops of vassals shall their tribute bring To crown thee heir of glory, child of grace." Srlrcted. There are Better Tines Ahead of us. lloxhoro Courier. It does soem that the world is travel ing by waves. Rounds and rebounds control everything. It comes in the lives of individuals and in the lives oi nations. When misfortune comes, it most often comes with very heavy step, and it leaves a crushed mass be hind it. When success comes, it is usually obundant success, heaped up and running over. Two ears ago we were in the midst of a terrible panic. Great fortunes were going down in a day. The result of years of thought and toil were wiped awav in a dav. Men in the morning counted their wealth by the hundred thousands, and before night they were paupers. Strong banks went down like feeble men. Rut the wave of the pan ic has ."pent its force, and now prosper ity is coming with a bound. We read dailv of the fires being kindled in new furnaces or red i, ! the old. Men who have been idle f-r months are now- working daily. Some who have held their positions at reduced wage?, are laving tliem increased. The factories closed a few months ago are now run ning on double time and many are n- arging their capacity. Xew ones are eing builded. AH this means a com ing day of prosperity. Itetter wages, more men at work, more to be consum ed and more consumed this is the wave upon which wo arc now mount ing. Cannons Made of Paper. X. Y. Evening &vn.

Mr. Polk Miller recently made a vis it to Texas. He wrote an interesting letter to the Richmond Disvn'ch. We p; 'int a few of the things he wrote. "1 had often heard of Texas, and ex poeted to see something grand m the- way of fine farms, rich lands, c., but I found on getting there that "the half bad never Ix'en told." Such crops of corn, oats, hay, and cotton I never saw, and the garden truck, such as we are in the habit of seeing in the nicest gar dens with us, grows luxuriantly there on almost anj- spot you may pick out. I was told by the old citizens that they had never seen such things as fertiliz ers, and I did not see a manure-pile in all my trip of 2,500 miles. Unlike Alabama, Georgia, Xorth and South Carolina, the farmers do not seem to employ negro labor except to a very limited extent. There are many negro farmers, but they have little patches of their own. White men were using the sulky-plows in the Jcotton fields while the negroes still hold on to the hoe. The hew improvements in the plow now called' the cultivators? seem to have revolutionized the old way of "hoein' o' de corn," such as we were used to in our childhood. I havs heard tnat an "old plantation negro, on seeing a white man riding a sulky-plow, said : "Dar, now, I knowed clat when de white man had ter come down ter wuk at de plow he'd find out some w jy ter ride." "During my stay of about a month in Texas I did not see a man with a pistol or gun, nor did I hear of a fight or a quarrel, nor did I see any drunk enness, l was in eighteen anterent towns, and travelled over two thousand miles. I never saw a more gentleman ly set of men, and there was a total ab sence of everything like boisterousness on the part of the travelling public. They would come into the trains as quietly as they would enter a church, and ladies coming into a crowded car would have to decide which to occupy of a dozen or more seats offered them by the men. Xo white man is allowed to ride in a car marked "For Xegroes," md no negro is allowed to ride in the car marked "For Whites." "Comanche is a place of three or four thousand inhabitants. The peo ple are thrifty both in the surrounding country and in the town, and the local ity is well known as the only place in Texas in which the colored brother is not allowed to live. It was a few years back the home of quite a large negro population, and on every court-day there were trials of negroes for theft of various kind. Then there occurred one of those shocking crimes Avhich the courts in the South will never be al- owed by the people to handle. The hrute was hung to a tree, and every ne gro in the county was ordered to leave it once. They did so, an1 there has not been a"1 case of theft tried there in five years. It is curious to see iront doors and windows to dwelling-houses standing wide open all night, and fam- ilv trunks sitting out in the front porches, l nose peopiu na ts a peimct hatred for a sneak-thief, and the little bovs who snatch pocket-books out of the hands of ladies on our streets and the hall-thieves who pull hats and overcoats of! our hat-racks in Rich mond would never be caught the sec ond time. I told them that we felt that we could not get along without the negro in nnr country, but thev said : 'If you'll just try it once you'll never want to see another.' RED-HOT OVER rROHIRITIOX. "I thought I had seen here a little ex citement over prohibition, but down there the people are "red-hot" over it. In several towns, principally in Waco and Paris, the people were very much wrought up, and the preachers were talking it from their pulpits. 1 saw two leading men in Paris, who are themselves very sober, steady individ uals, and who favor prohibition on ecen eral principle, but who said they in- j tended voting the et ticket ju-t le-j I cause their minister- had made whis-j i 1 key-drinking the subject of their Sun- day-morning talk, and that thev didn't j believe in preachers meddling in ?uch j matters. The good "dominie" ha 1 said that "any man who votes the wet ticket is not a fit member of the church." This didn't sot well on the boys, and particularly since prohibition d:d not stop the drinking. One of them told me that i:i the towns that had gone dry the "blind timers' and the drugstores were doing a thriving illegitimate traffic in liquor. I herrd a man say that there were physicians in the dry towns who wrote prescrip tions for 25 cents each, and that one doctor was making over 10 a day writ ing prescriptions lor whiskey. All they want down there is the enforce ment of the liquor laws. The only man whom I saw intoxicated during my four-weeks' stay in the State was in a town that was ' dry." There are a large majority of people in favor of breaking up the bar-rooms, but many do not favor the breaking up of li censed saloonis and throwing the trade into the hands of men who will sell it in a sneaking way, and "beknowin"' to the officers of the law, who will not bring them to justice. Texas is to-day a prohibition State, but the people will not vote that war, and allow -blind tigers to take the place of the licensed dealers. But it is cominer, cominir. coming, and in less than two years the law officers will be changed, the new men will enforce the law, and the State will be "as dry as a powder-horn." Temperance and Thrift. niot. Industry, economy, and foresight are the essential conditions in creating and multiplying the conveniences and com forts of life. People, in comfoitaliJe circumstances neither poor, nor rich, constitute the best communities. Thev are the most orderly, contented and trustworthy class. They endure with more patience the draw-backs of life ; are least affected by the temptations and diversions that sweep periodically over communities and debase them ; and possess the staying power that make so important a factor in race-suc cesses. Thrift material accretions to the measure of the actual demand of li v- ing is an essential element in social and national permanence. Thrift nev er obtains, as a permanent characteris j.i i . it tic of a people, who are not sober ; who do not plan and work when the mind and the body are in the normal condi tion to supply and to press adeqate and feasible programmes of action. The saloon that deranges the nervous sys tem, confuses the intellect and ener vates the will, destroys the essential condition of material progress and well doing. Money represents all values pro cures all values and any force that de feats money getting and reduces the chances oi lawful acquisition, invades dangerously and cripples fatally the economic forces that underlie comfort able circumstances. The Word "Wife." What do you think the beautiful word "wife" came from? It is the great word with which the English and Lat in languages conquered the French and Greeks. I hope the French will one dav get a word for it instead of thr.t of "femme." Hut what does it come from? The great value of the Saxon words is that they mean something. Wife means "weaver." You must eith er be house-wives or house-moths, re member that. In the deep sense you must either weave men's fortune and embroider them, or feed upon them and bring them to decay. Wherever a true wife comes, home is always around her. The stars may be over her head, the glow-worm in the night's cold grass may be the fire at her feet ; but home is where she is. or ior a noble woman, it stretches far around her, better than houses ceiled with cedar, or painted with vermillion, shedding its quiet life for those who are homeless. This I be lieve is woman's true place and power. JULY 18, 1895. Af". .1.." V. Jlondy, in C.'i(' .f.. Tim 9-11' raid.
