A MONUMENT TO SLAVES.
Tribute to Their Fldelltj by Min Solarl, a Southern Woman. In the hearts of the mighty fallon ls deep rooted tho feeling of inextin? guishable gratitude to thc loyal slaves to whose care the women and children were intrusted daring the entire period of the wnr between tbe states, lt is n sentiment that still remains ?moldering In the souls of those who owned them. To those slaves who watched the tire side, tilled the soil, helped spin, weave nnd make raiment for the master and his son on tbe battlefield to those slaves who protected and provided for the families nt home is due a monu? ment tbat will tell the story to coming generations tbat cannot be taugbl the lesson of self Mcrlflce and devotion of tbe slave In any other way. If a time is ever ripe for a noble deed, now 1 ls that time, for the grand, courteous I southern slave owner is fast passing 1 away, aud to erect Uie monument ' would be to hand down to posterity an i ' open book in which our southern ehil- I 1 dren can learn that every negro is no ' "black fiend." The north would not I understand tbe sentiment. Of course ' not. Erecting this monument would iuliu- ' ' ence for good tbe present and coining J generations and prove that the people of the south who owned slaves valued nnd respected tin lr good qualities as no one else ever did or will do. Tt would bespeak the real conception of ( . the affection of the owner toward the slave and refute tbe slanders and * falsehoods published In "Uncle Tom's * Cabin." , There did exist In the days of trial i and hardship uot only a perfect under? standing, but the kindest sympathy, and in thousands of plantations and homes where every white male on the place able to bear arms would ko to tlie battlefield the helpless families of women aud children were left entirely , to the care and protection of the trust? ed slaves. . No one who was rocked to sleep by the sweet lullaby of the faithful black "mammy." listened to her weird ghost stories, nursed at her breast or played about her cabin door would ever be willing to have these tender me: 'orles die out. There is the side of sentiment, the ?lde of gratitude, that those who have felt the touch can never jive np nor can they forget the debt due the faithful "10 per cent of slaves that re? mained with their masters after free? dom." Erect tbe monument, lt will result In much Rood, as it will tell future generations that the white men of the south were tlie negro's best friends then and that the men of the south are thc negro's best friends today. Instances portraying the fidelity of the slaves might be told to till endless volumes and would recite the sweetest stories of heartfelt devotion, tl* unselfish acts, prompted by pure love; self forgetting, they would sacrifice comfort?yea, even go hungry?nnd witb a smile serve those to whom they felt an undying fealty. They could not express all they felt, but for mammy's "girl" or "boy" tbey could work and suffer and teach a blessed lesson of endurance and glorified fortitude, for, as Miss Dromgoole so sweetly ex? presses it: Her face 13 as black as ebon, Wrinkled -and seamed and old. But her heart, I know, is as white as snow And true as the rarest gold. Her brown hands, old and feeble With the touch of passing years. Would banish each trace of care from my lace And brush from my heart the tears. Mammy and friend, 1 loved her, Humble and all unfamed, But I love to trace in her love the face That robber years have claimed. Her face is as black as ebon, Her soul as fair as the day, And her prayers, 1 know, wherever I bo Will follow me all the way. ?Confederate Veteran. SpllttlnK of Chun-hen. Division is not a bad thing in itself. All living things grow by division. Churches, live churches, follow tlie same law, but the simple division of the cell into two equal, similar and inde? pendent cells is confined to the lowest branch of the animal and vegetable kingdoms. It is ia church history as lt is in natural history. When we find on opposite sides of the road two little white churches exactly alike, except that the steeple is on the north end of one and on the south end of the other, we know it belongs to the proto? zoan period of ecclesiastical develop? ment. We have outgrown the stage of the multiplication of churches by the primitive processes of splitting, seces sion and recession. Even In Scotland, where the process was formerly most active until a church was reduced to "me aud Sandy" with doubts as to the latter's orthodoxy the title bas turned and the churches are reunit? ing.?Century. Value ot the 'Weather Man. In spite of the standing Jokes about the weather man it is probable that for every dollar spent on the weather bureau ten are saved. At tbe time of the Mississippi Hood of 1MI7 $15,000,000 worth of live stock and other property were saved as a result of warnings Issued s week ahead, sin nals displayed for a single hurricane have detained tn port vessels valued. with their cargoes, at g20,000,000. Tbe West Indian stations, established in 1898, inform us of hurricanes as soon as they begin. The course of the hur? ricane tbat caused the Galveston flood was charted for a week bet or*- it struck our shores-for hurricanes move slow? ly. Eighty-five per cent of the fore? casts now- come true, nnd by the aid of rural free delivery 25,000,000 fore? cast cards were distributed last year to farmers, many of whom could not .Save hud them fi.-e years ego. THREE JURORS CURED of Cholera riorbus with one small Bottle of Chamberlain's Colic, Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy. Mr. G. W. Fowler of Hightower, Ala,, relates an experience lie had while serving on a petit jury in a murder case at Edwardsville, count v seat of Clebourne county, Alabama He says: While there I ale some fresi meat and some souse meat and il gave me cholera morbus in a ven severe form. I was never more sic! in my life and sent to tbe drug sturt for a certain cholera mixture, bul the druggist sent me a bottle of Cham berlain's Colic, Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy instead, saying that lie ha( what I sent for, but that this modi cine was so much better he wonk rather send it to me in the fi\ 1 wa in. I took one dose of it and wa better in five minutes. The se-con dose cured me entirely. Two fellov jurors were afllieud in the sam manner and one twenty-five cen bottle cured the three of us."

Cuntomn uud Deltefa. l'rofcssor Myllus Eriksen, writing of M heathen Eskimo lu northern U re-en md, says: -He lacks Imagination, but is powers of observation are very cute. In spite of the tact that his life i au uninterrupted struggle for exlt>t n.-e the Oreenlander is always in a ..od humor, and his boisterous laugh an be heard sounding far over Ice aud uow fields.

A TALE OF TWO SCOUTS. Sarro*?T Kncape Fiflin a Rattler aud a Hu ml of Indian*. lu Cyrus Townsend Brady's "Indian Fights and Fighters" ls a tale of two scouts, Trudeau and Stillwell, who carried to General Carpenter through an Indian Infested country the news that Major Forsyth was being besieged in the sands of Beecher's Island by a thousand warriors. Here ls one Inci? dent of their journey: "During this day a large party of scouting Indians halted within 100 feet of the wallow whore tbe scouts were hiding. Simultaneously with their ar? rival u wanderiug rattlesnake made its appearance in front of the two scouts, who were bugglug the earth aud ex? pecting every minute to bc discovered. "In his way the rattlesnake was as deadly as tbe Indian. Tlie scouts could have killed him easily bad lt not been for the proximity of tbe Chey? ennes. To make tbe slightest move? ment would call attention to their bid? ing place. Indeed, tlie sinister rattle of the venomous snake before he struck would probably attract the notice of the alert Indians. Between the sav? age reptile and the savage men the scouts were in a frightful predicament, which young Stillwell, a lad of amaz? ing resources, instantly and effectually solved. "He was chewing tobacco at tbe time, and as the snake drew near him and made ready to strike Stillwell completely routed him by spitting to? bacco juice in his mouth and eyes and all over his head. The rattlesnake fled. He could not stand such a dose. Tbe Indians presently moved on, having noticed nothing, and so ended perhaps the most terrible half hour .the two men had ever experienced.** To Scare Away Crows. I can give a sure preventive against corn pulling by tlie black rogues. I had tried all sorts of devices and was rigging a scarecrow, when a gawky came along nnd said, "Tie ears of com to the tops of poles around your field, and the crows won't stay nigh it." I said, "Tliey will eat the corn, and you and tbey will both laugh at me." I tried tlie plan, however, and sure enough they looked at those poles and went away and stayed away.

OBESITY A DISEASE. Vigorous Measures For Ita Removal Should He Taken. At middle age certain organs lose functional activity and shrink and waste away, demanding less blood and nerve energy. This decreased need for nutrition, If not heeded, will result In taking Into the body more food than can be oxidized and used either to build up tissue or for the generation of heat and energy. Tlie result ls kid? neys, liver and other excretory organs are overworked la the effort to remove the body wastes and become diseased, lays ? writer In the Housekeeper. Then nature stores up this foul material In the form of fat lu ull tiie lymph spaces, between the fibers of the muscles and 1 lu every other odd corner lu the body where lt can be stowed away, lu time this lifeless, useless structure of fat crowds out muscle, gland aud other normal tissue? aud takes their place. Tills is what ls known ns fatty degen? eration and always shortens life, end? ing often In sudden death from heart' failure, apoplexy, diabetes or kidney disorders. The prevention of oln'sity means reg? ulation of diet, especially in middle life and wheu changing from an active out of door occupation to u sedeutary in? door life. Often the amount of food Should be cut down from ouo-fourth to one half, especially avoiding fats and sweets, also soft foods, which tend to gormandising from deficient mastica? tion and too hasty eating. No wine, beer or alcoholic drink or tea or coffee should he used. At meals even the use of water should be restricted. Exer? cise should be taken In the open air and deep breathing practiced to In? crease the Intake of oxygen and burn up and oxidize bodily toxic matter. For those women who are overstout, yet retain a fair amount of physical vigor, the day should begin with a cold bath, plunge, spray, cold towel rub or sponge bath, after which should be tak? en active exercise in the form of work, either in the open air or In a well ven? tilated room, horseback riding, bicy? cling or a brisk walk for an hour or more. Exercise lu a well ventilated gymnasium may be substituted for the out of door, but ls not so effective and Invigorating. POINTED PARAGRAPHS.

Every one has had more happy days in his life than wretched ones, but how he lets the wretched ones stand out! There are so many -operations of late that a man can become distinguished by arriving In heaven all in oue piece.

"Gold In tbe morning, silver at noon and lead at night" ls always used with reference to fruit. Most people think lt means that the explanation of the prov? erb is that digestion ls strongest in the morning and weakens as tbe day goes on. But you will note that the proverb refers to fruit alone. If lt has to do with tbe digestive power only lt should be applied to all foods. The real expla? nation ls very different. It ls that fruit freshly gathered ls fitted for eating and lessens In value ns the hours pass. That ls true not of fruit only, but of all veg? etables. That which comes direct from the garden to the table ls the most pal? atable and In every way best fitted for consumption. Deepest Haul Kver Made.
