" i. still live." I was ruminating
about the last words of grea'. men, and
those of Daniel Webster always im
press me with peculiar force. On the
very confines of eternity, on the brink
of the everlasting change that he knew
was at hand, his great mind seemed to
he studying and waiting for the mo,
ment of his departure---waiting and
watching for the separation of the soul
from the body, and wondering how he
would pass the crisis. There was no
fear, no dread, as he calmly whisper
ed, " l still live," and immediately
died. His body died, and what was
the next vision of his great soul the
world would like to know, but it is for
bidden. I thought of all this not long
ago as I seemed to be drawing near the
end and approached the confines of
that undiscovered country from whose
bourne no traveler returns. I was
Serions and solemn with expectation,
but was not alarmed, for my faith is
that my Maker will take care of inc
and of all others who love Him and try
to do right. All that troubled ile was
the separation from those I love and
their grief at my departure. Two
months is a long time to be a child
again without vital force enough to
walk alone. But I have passed the
crisis, and though weak and nervous
am on the up-grade, and can walk
ab-mt the garden and carry the little
grandchild in imy arms and give him
flowers and feast on his smiles and
Well, that is enough on that line.

prosy commentarios on sickness and

Let us enjoy the day and be tbankful
that we still live. But to drop rever
ently from the sublime to the ridicu
lous. I recall that when I was young
a number of us were quoting the last
words of great men such as Seneca and
P1lato and Calvin and Luther and one
said: " Well, you know what Daniel
.Webster said'?" No, we did not re
member and he replied: " Why he
opened his great big eyes and looked
at his friends who were weeping around
him and whispered, ' Boys, don't cry;
I am not deai yet.'
Forty-one years ago last Sunday the
battle of Manassas was fought. It
was the fIrst hattle of the civil war and
made a deeper impression upon those
engaged in it than any other. Comu
pared with the great battles that came
after it, it was almost insignificant, for
theic was only four hundred and
seventy Federal killed and three hun
dred and seventeen Confederates. The
Federal account gives sixteen hundred
of their army as missing. That is a
mistake, for by four o'clock they were
all missing. Our cavalry couldn't find
them, though they followed their trail
of discar,ed guns and haversacks for
miles and miles. There never was
such a rout and such a panic during
the war. We didn't have enough wa
gons next (lay to gather up the scat
terel munitions of war, and it took
McDowell a month to call in his army
of twenty-seven thousand men and re
organize. But in the long run they
got even with us and a little ahead, and
the Grand Army is still bragging how
four of them whipped one of us in four
years. That's all right. We are
satialled with our record and it, grows
brighter as t,he years roil on. Anno
Dlomini will tell.
The other day my doctor said I must
take some exercise and lie took his
mother and me up the river road for a
few miles to the ruins of the Cooper
ironi works. 1I, was awild, weird, ghostly
lace on the banks of the Etowah,
where once were rolling milla and
foundry and furnaces and flour mills
andl tan yards and hundreds of cottages,
where happy laborers and mechanics
lived. But Sherman's army burned
and dlestroyed -everything, and since
thein most of the crumbling walls have
fhalleL and1 the trees have grown up in
their midst, and wild vines have climb
ed the trees and nothing is visible but
ruins and the sad spectacle of a cruel
amti brut,al war. But this is one burn
ing that, according to the rules and
usages of war, was justified, for these
iron works wore making cannon for
the Confederacy. 'It, was the lone
-sonme chimneys of the poor all along
his line of march that marked his bru
tality and proved his assertion that
"war Is hell."
But no more of this. While view
ing these ruins my memory went back
to the time when Joe Brown was
Governor and ordered that 5,000 pikes
he made with a spear point and a side
blade curved downward like a reap
hook and a long handle in a socket, so
that, our boys might take 'em coming
and going. If they didn't run we were
to spear 'em, and if they did run we
were t,o overtake 'em and hook 'em
back. -That's what old, man Lewis
told me, and he was the master mechanic
who miade themi, and he still lives near
here and is in his 88th year. I saw
him today and he steps light and
springy, ie is an Englishman. "Mr.
Lewis," said I, " why didn't the Geor
gia boys use these pikes ?" " Well,
you see," said he, " the old army of
Ilecers who were drilling our boys at
ig Shanty looked at these pikes and
saidl to the Governor; * What will the
enemy be doing with their guns whle~
our boys are rushing on t,hem with
these pIkes? They will shoot our boym
down before they can,.get to them,' and
-they made so much fun over the pikem
that,. they were refused. West, Poli
wouldn't have anything that was noi
bused at, West Point."
And so the ft.rther manufacture o
pikes was stopped and those that were
made are now scattered all over the
country as curios for museums. A
sister of mine says she saw one of them
not long ago in a museum in Boston.
But still 1 don't see why spears are
any more out of order than bayonets
when a desperate charge is to be made.
" Charge bayonets!1" is in the West
Point tactics, and why not " Charge
pikes?" They are an awful looking
weapon, and if they were coming at
me and my gun was to miss fire I
should drop it and run like a turkey.
I had rather be bored with a bullet
than stuck like a hog. But it is all
over now, and we have beaten our
spears into pruning hooks according to
Scripture and will not learn war any
more, except when the mulattos and
niggers refuse to give up their lands to
us. We want more land for teiritory
and more niggers for subjects.
But I hear the dinner bell and must
go-not to partake of the feast, but to
say grace and pieside and inhale the
savory odor of roast lamb and green
corn pudding and look at the peaches
and cream for dessert. They let me do
that and give mo nothing but soup and
rice for my share. My tomatoes are
now in their prime and it pleases me
to gather them in the early morn. My
largest weighed two pounds, lacking
two ounces, and was a beauty. It was
working them in the hot sun and then
filling up with ice water that laid me
up. trLL ARP.

'emarkable and certainly mobt inter

tale in other countries after they have
)assed wholly out of the control and f
he knowledge of umnufaturers ; but,
o far as the managers of mills are able
,o trace their products, they furnished c
goods for export during the year 1899
1900 to the value of $15,357,502, or c
ibout live-eighths of the value of cloth t
;xported during the fiscal year. Almost c
;0 per cent. of the total value repre.
onts the product of Southern mills t
md nearly 37 per cent. the goods of
New England. It is an interesting
fact that South Carolina, which was 1
istorically and politically during the
years precedling the civil war the most,
conspicuouis champion of a policy fa- i
vorable to the exportation of raw cot
ton, upon which the planters most re
lied, andl opposed1 to the fostering of
manufactures of cotton, spunl in its I
own mills in 1900 a quantity of cottoni
exceedimg the half of its own cropm andi

cotton~ cloth reported to the census as
having been dispatched to foreign<
countries. The exact percent,age of

The Atlanta Journal , in commenting
upon the census report concerning cot

any words that could be used on the
The official figures of the last census
show that the capital invested In the
South in the textdle industry was but
$25,379,140 in 1880 and by 1900 had
grown to $146,840,155. The capital
in the same indlustry in New England1
in 1880 was $201,61,147. In 1900 it
was $524,899,302. Thus while t,he
capital in the textile industry of the
South had increased 478 per cent, in
tweny years that, of New FCngland h ad
increased only 100 per3 cent.
The actual and relative increase in
the value of thme textile product,s of the
South was quite as remarkable. 1t
grew from $25,6318,246; in 1880 to
$114,887,668 In 1900. The figures for
he Neew England mills were $310,542,
352 in 1880 and $412,876,976 in 1900.1
Tlhe value of the textile product of tIhe
South inereased in twenty years 348
per cent. and that of New England
only 32 per cent. The Increase of t,he

dustry in the Sorith represented 0 per
cent. of all in the country, and in 1900
14 per cent. In the same period the
proportion of the value of the products
in the South advanced from 4 to 1:1
per cent. of the total for the country.
The South has gone much further
forward in the textile industry than
she was in June, 1900, when these
figures were taken. The next census
will have a report to make o: Southern

more marvelous than that at which the

Charleston Evening Post.
In the United States Circuit Court
today judge Simonton handed down
his decision in the case of the State of
South Carolina against the Virginia.
Carolina Chemical company, granting
the motion of the plaintiff for the re-'
mand of the case to the State court.
The decision is a victory for Attor
ney (eneral Bellinger. It will be re- t
called that several months ago Attor
ney General Bellinger brought action
against the Virginia-Carolina Chemi- e
cal company, in the Richland County
court, under the anti-trust act, alleging t
that the company was purchasing and e
acquirimg a mionop)oly of the fertihzter ,
industry, contrary to law.
The attorneys for the company e
inoved before Judge Buchanan for a
transfcr of thle suit, to tho Federal ~
ourt. alleging the act to be in deroga- a
Aion of the constitution of the United
Slates. The judge refused the motion, V

Judge Simonton's decision is lengthy, r
.otaining many law citations. The (
ourt notes that, accompanying the r
ecords, there is no order of the State r
ourt removing the suit. " But from e
idmissions," continues the court, e
nnde at the bar and from the t
rhole tenor of the arguments, it ap- t
ears that the absence of the order, 1
emoving the cause, was not based 4
ipon the insufliciency of tie bond, but n
ipon the legal ground that the case
nde by the plaintiff, (lees not raise u
lie Federai question on which alone e
his court can take jurisdiction. The
uestion involved in this discussion is r
;rave and beset with difliculty. The e
tato has the right to have the case
rought by her, tried in her own
ourts, unless the constitution of the
Jutted States has secured to the do
endant the right of protection in the
Oederal court."
Judge Simonton ruled that the Fed
ral question did not appear on the V
ace of the record, and lie was bound c
o go by the record and remand the e
ase to the State courts. The decision
hows that the act of the Legislature t
ontained no mention of the constitu- t
ion of the United States, and no rights, e
laims, privileges and .immunity of r
ederal statutes which would bring t
lie act into any relation or conflict
'ith the Federal law. The court etates,
towever, that a Federal question might a
e raised hereafter in the State courts, t

-ie Tilinks a Private Citizen
IIN Greater Jiotir Than i
On Saturday afternoon, in the pre
senCe of an audience of 4,000 persons
assembled in the amphitheatre of tho
Mountain Lake Park Chautauquan As
:ociatioi, Md., Win. Jennings Bryan
liscussed the problems of government.
Mr. Bryan prefaced his address, which
was of two hours' durati-n, with a
lenial that he will again seek to be
eomc the national stannard bearer of
ie Democratic party, his denial being
,ontained in the following phrases:
"I hope you will give me credit for

han to be satisfied with the oilce of
L'resident of the United States. I am
;oo democratic to covet an ambition
hat only a few in one generation can
hare. I prefer the honor of being a
rivate citizen, an honor greater than
hat of a King."
Throughout his discussion of the
nomentous problems now engaging
ho attention of the two great polilical
arties Mr. Bryan occasionally tapped
vein of quiet humor that generated
miles on many countenances.
" You will recall," he said, " that
lie Republicans have had two telling
hances at me, and on this occasion I1
tould seek one at them. In dealing
nth the theme of 'Problems of Gov- 1

ir. Bryan delined as the harmonious
evelopment of the human race, e
iorally, mentally and physically, he
egar(led the cultivation of the moral t
lenient as a paramount issue and do- j
lured that history supported his con- i
.ntion that moral decay had preceded
lie ruin of every nation that had fal

He further denounced what he

''ii i":U RA i. Sciioor.-Mr. Bran.
Soi, of (eorgia, has recently told in
the World's Work the story of the
model rural schools which the Fedora
tion of Wonon's Clubs is helping to
establish in that State. In speakiug
of one, he said, '' The common school
siubjects will be taught, of course.
But cooking, the cultivation of school
gardons, a hif-dozen forms of remun
erative handicrafts, a school library, a
mother's club, and a fortnightly insti
tite for the teachers of the county will
be somuo of the features of this school."
Yea, verily; why not,? Why not include
in the work of the school so much of
the work of the community as the chil
dreu can appreciate and employ in
their own education ? A school is a
place in which children should live
atd move and have their being. It
should reflect the larger life without
aid prepare its pupils for a better life
mo the future by helping them to live a
truer, more normal life in the present.
That which is treated with respect in
school, whether it he arithmetic or
gramnmar, cotton picking or hog rais
ing, religion or poities, will rarely be
an object of contempt after school.
Time and experience will eliminate
what is useless or harinful in the cur
riculum and methods of such experi
mental schools.-'e WVorlI's Iork.
Added now to the joys of smoking is
the knowledge that smoking may pre
vent some diseases. Dr. l)umon has
st.udied the action of tobacco smoke
upon the various organisms found in
the cavity of the mouth and has found
that, while it has no effect upon ty
phoid fever germs or tetanus (lock
jaw), it greatly retards the growth of
the bacilli of influenza, of diphtheria
and of consumption.
A bottle, containing a letter asking
the finder to state where he found it
was cast into the Mackinaw river, Cen

'The bottle must have floated into the
Illinois river, the Mississippi, the gulf
of Mexico, the Atlantic ocean and by
way of Cape Horn into the Pacific, a
voyage of 10,000 miles.

There is a disease prevailing in this
country most dangerous because so decep
tive. Many sudden deaths are caused by
it-heart disease, pneumonia, heart failure
or apoplexy are often .the result of kidney
disease, If kidney trouble is allowed to ad
vance the kidney-poisoned blood will attack
the vital organs, or the kidneys themselves
break down and waste away cell by cell.
Then the richness of the blood-the albumen
-leaks out and the sufferer has Bright's
Disease, the worst form of kidney trouble.
