and gallant little amy the confederate soldier realized at in the language of Caesar The die was cast and all was over The use he loved so well ancktor which he had fought bled and suffered pet ration and hardship was forever lost to him For a moment his breast aved with emotion his frame trem ed and he bowed his head and wept then turning his back upon the battle lds he took up his long and weary march homeward Behold him as he trudges along his p is slow and his once strong frame is reduced to a mere shadow his cheeks are hollow and his body is racked with- inpa When night comes on and he seeks a place to rest the earth is his d and the blue and canopy of the avens his covering When morning dawns be resumes his journey homeward and as he proceeds his tattered and ragged uniform his emaciated ame tells the story for him and he is ministered to with kind hands and loving hearts Now he is nearing me familiar scenes present them selves on every side and his tread becomes quicker and his eye brighter At last he gains an elevation which commands a view of his once stately me and wide plantation and pauses th bowed head perhaps in pray rhaps fearful to behold the ruin tellmAt length he raises his head and looks upon the scene of devastation He had passed through many battles where shot and shell were as numberless as tbe sands of the seashore and bad charged to tile flaming mouths of the cannon and his courage had never iled but the sight of his home in ruins and his plantation laid waste was a greater test of courage than he had ever known before He had gone forth to fight for that which he believ ed just and right country and home and being overpowered he had sought solace in his homeit was gone Hope and despair battled for supremacy At st loving arms were entwined about neck and a sweet bright face looked up into his ownWoman his south land stood by him speaking words of cheer and urging him onward Hope took up its abode in his heart thus aided and the battle was won Woman hound up his wounds and nursed him back to health and strength and imbued him with hope and courage to begin life anew A cabin of unhewn logs was made and she who had been reared amid luxurious surroundings took up her household duties therein with a cheerful mien A mule was found on the range and with rudely constructed harness and plow the con federate soldier took his place behind plow with tbat indomitable will battlede Gradually order was brougbt out of chaos and fields and grounds sumed partly their former appearance until today the sweet sunny south stands tbe wonder and admiration of atthe worldthe envy of the North and target for all the vile vituperation of the Northern press With these facts before is it any wonderand Isnt it right that the man of the south should love and esteem woman his southland above all other things of the earth Aye and he will defend and protect her from the Insults and outrages of tbe black imps of hell whom tbe North would lovingly emhrace and defer from justice isThe negro rapist goes through a 1country selects an innocent white girl victim awaits a favorable portunity and then assaults and mur ders her The people of tbe South leave nil stones unturned to captu and burn him at the stake death entirely too humane fortbe crime per petrated and the North daubs the Southoutlaws barbarians and other meatiokn When au incompetent negro is appointed to office in the South the North looks on and applauds but when an office was created and a negro appointed to fill it recently in Boston the warblers and proper talkers pawed up tbe earth a mile deep Bas ton is admixed town where negro bucks marry white women This fact alone shows the depraved condition of thing up there It is the kind of cattle that is forever and eternally sticking up the bloody shirt in frontof us Jeff Da vis of Arkansas did a pious act last year when be pardoned a negro buck from the state prison on the condition that he would become a citizen of Mas sachusetts Immediately The people of that state had roared so long and loud that Davis was deslous of showing them what kind of black devils be had to contend with Of course this raised a louder howl but little did Davis care The South is now the better part of the United States in many ways Her manufacturing enterprises are rapidly increasing and ere long will outstrip tbe north The intelligence of the uthleaving out the negroes accord tag to numbers exceeds that of the north At the close of the war the south was a waste but within forty years ithas grown to be pne of the leading sections of the globe This is due to southern IIget you go for man ner of conducting things It is absolutely unnecessary for the Administra tion to appoint negroes to office in the compeIshould have the appointments In view of this fact the recent negro ap polntment at Charleston looks like spite work A newspaper stated edi itoraly few days ago that the Dem ocratic press was kicking about the Charleston appointment and that it had evldentally overlooked the fact tbat two negroes were lee out of office in the south not long ago and white men installed The southern Republicans of the white faction are raising more sand than the Democrat press and I say keep on raising sand until the negro office holding curse is removed We dont need the black element there for they only create discord and mischief As for the two negroes Teddy removed from office they were like all others of their colorIncompetent- and he had to kick them out Keep the negro in his place and there will be no trouble but put him in a white mans shoes and the devil increases business right away God in all his wisdom made the white man first and he should still b first in every thing Tbe Indian says God made white man first red man next dog next and bigger last I Teddy is so anxious to Rive Sambo job he should try him in the North awhile and let the long suffering persecuted South have a term of peace J Mc S CS

operation was per formed Thursday morning Jan 1stI the surgeon took five stones from the left kidney He had grown very weak as a result of his serious condition and long confinement but she stood the operation fairly well for one in his condition and was perfectly rational after the operation but was quite weak Friday morning Jan 2 he grew weak er and aally at 12 oclock M he succumbed The sews of his death was telephoned to Giddings immediately and it cast a pall of sorrow over the community for his friends we legion Tbe remains were brought Giddings Friday sight and on Sate day afternoon

of a man Is sot in the forum or the field not In the market place or the amen corner but his own fireside There he lays aside his mask and yoj may judge whether he is imp or angel king or cur hero or humbug I care not what tbe world says whether it crowns him win bays or pelts him with bad eggs I care not a copper what his reputation may be it his babies dread his homecoming and his betterhalf swal ows her heart every time she asks for a five dollar bill hes a fraud of the first wateri fe When the children rush to the front gate to meet him and loves own sunshine illuminates the face of his wife when she hears his footfall you take It for granted that he is pure gold for his home is a heaven and the humbug never gets that near to the white throne of God He may be a rank atheist and a red flag anarchist a Mormon and a mugwump he may buy votes In blocks of five and bet on the election and may deal them from the bottomot the peak and drink beer until he cant tell a silrerdollar from a circular saw and still be Infinitely a better man than the cowardly little hypocrite who is all suavity In society yet makes his home shellwho vents upon the helpless heads of his wifeand children the Illnature that he would like to inflict upon his fellowmen but he dares not 1 can forgive much in that fellow mortal who bad rather make men swear than women weep thee world than the contempt of his

1 For the Philippine Islands you have had to repeal the Declaration of Independence For Cuba you have had to reaffirm it and give it new luster 2 For the Philippine islands you have had to convert the Monroe doctrine tats a doctrine of mere selfish nessFor Cuba you have acted on it and vindicated It 3 In Cuba you have got the eternal gratitude of a free people In the Philippine islands you have got the hatred and sullen submission of a subjugated people 4 From Cuba you have brought home nothing but glory From the Philippines you have brought home nothing of glory 6 In Cuba no man thinks of count InK the cost The few soldiers who came home from Cuba wounded or sick carry about their wounds and their pale faces as it they were medals of honor What soldier glories in a wound or an empty sleeve which he got in the Philippines 6 The conflict in the Philippines rehas cost you 8600000000 thousands of tarr6youththe health and sanity of thousands more and hundreds of thousands of Filipinos slain MPRMONISM AND THE SENATE Apostle Reed Smoot has been no bydture The nomination is of course equlva lent to an election and in the near ture the Conscript Fathers at Was ngton will find themselves face to fu with the questino Shall a Morman be allowed to sit in the United Sta Senate Smoot is a member of life Council of Morindeon e for the presidency of that mostuni American institution IonThatthere can be no doubt He is a Mormon of the Mormons and bin proaelyt t alNir Ms J InK voice has been has been beapc allover the country as well as tbt ugh out England and tbe continent That this man should be mm rated and elected to the ht6lhotlJce of United States Senator by the Mormons of Utah is not a matter of surprise but it will be a very great surprise if Smoot is permitted to take his place in the upper council of the nation CHARACTER IS WORTH Character is what a man really is Reputation is what he appears to be or Issupposed to be Not every time dj character and reputation coincide in the same Individual Men who do not care for character because they know they are not honest will do everything in their power to protect their reputa tlon says tbe New Orleans Picayune Character amounts to so much in this world that reputation for honesty comes exceedingly valuable because it may save a man from being publicly as a good character is it is not sufficiently appreciated by employers It should be rewarded particularly when coupled with business ability But the unscrupnlous employ er does not want a man who may re ruse to do his bidding in some crooked transaction and so the honest man sometimes goes begging But the fact remains that never be tore was there such a need of honest men and women and the world will sooner or later find itout Sharp prac tice does not always win and custom ers who are cheated find out the fact and in time the world will go back to honesty and the sharpers will be cast out Let the honest workers stand to theirprlnciples They are the founda lion upon which the vast and noble structure of virtue and honor is built and must ever remain The number of men who tall on count of lack of courage is enormous The number who would refuse to let go of a dollar if they knew positively it would bring back two is astonishing Such men merely exist They dont live They never really amount to anything The men who win are tbe men who think out the right course to ursue then back up their convictions with their last penny and their las ounce of energy The first goods John Wanamaker ever sold broughthlm 36 He delivered his goods in a wheel barrow He

to the action oflthe Democratic party ifR MOOT There will likely be an effort on the part of many people to prevent the newly elected Senator from Utah from taking his seat in the U S Senate and just what the result will be can not yet bf determined Mr Reed Smoot high official of the Mormon Church and a staunch Republican is the man who holds the certificate of election from the Utah Legisla ture About two years ago Mr Roberts elected by the voters of his district to a seat in Congress presented his certificate to that body and was given the grand bounce because he was a member of the Mormon Church but he was also a Democrat Now it is up to the Senate whether or not it will reject Mr Smoot on the same ground that the House kicked out Roberts If Mr Smoot is accept ed then Mormonism cuts no figure provided a Mormon has agree able political convictions If is e rejected then the Senate will have indorsed the rejection of Mr Roberts as well as Mr Smoot In our judgment Congress established a dangerous precedent in the Roberts case Wo take the position that a mans religious connection should not bar him from office nor aid him to get it It will be asserted no doubt that Roberts had a pleurality of wives and that Smoot has only one This will afford a dodging point only but willnot be sufficient to hberat tho Republican party from the odium of rejecting a Democrat who was honestly elected and not questioned because he was a Democrat rather than his attachment to a religious creed Mr Smoot it not a practical Mormon in the sense of a polygamist but out theoretically He stands high iu the councils of his Church He baa done the missionary act in the Old World He has not sought to expell puljg amy from his Church Re is an guilty as Roberts Both houestlv elected then both should have their offices and if the teaching and practice of the Mormon creed is a violation of national lawn cram against the States thou each should answer to an lit dictment from the bodies in which they sit Rev Irl RHioks has the foi lowing to B ay concerning the weather for this month We do not hesitate to say now that we be lieve that February will be one of the roughest months of the

On one occasion after questioning Mr Rigney as to his position on a number of questions then agita ting the people and getting an swers that were always satisfactory to hishearers Capt Boone ask ed the old gentleman how he stood on the doctrine of trans substantia tion Mr Rigney had doubtless never heard of the word and it was a stumper He thought a mo ment and then brought down the house and
