April 38, 1892. SOUTHERN MERCURY. Household Hints. The small, dark checks in crock- ery are caused by cleansing in too hot water. At some hospitals, almost the only gargle used for the throat is hot salt water. Grained woods should be washed , with cold tea, and then, after be- ing wiped dry, rubbed with linseed oil. A sack of the best salt standing where there is a smell of fish or any opjectionable odor, will absorb the flavor. Chandeliers and picture frames, if rubbed occasionally with oil of lavender, will not be injured by flies. After the juice is squeezed from lemons, the peels are useful to rub brass with; dip in common salt, "then brush with bry bath-brick. When you polish your stove, shave as much hard soap as you use of the polish, boil together in a little water, and apply. By rubbing with a flannel dip- ped in whiting, the brown discolor- ations may be taken off of cups which have been used for baking. In making custard, pumpkin or lemon pie, it is better to partly bake...

Apt 11 28, 1892. SOUTHERN MERCURY. 9 are ¿ mon' set th' i Tb btr / r \ y --t- u i IS GOLD A CURSE? What did the English banker mean, when he admonished the American congress to "go slow on the money question?" Said he, "I fear the American people will demand an absolute money!" The question is: What did this En- glish banker mean by "absolute money?" It cannot be gold or silver, or both, because English bankers are in favor of the "gold standard," but they do not claim that it is abso- lute money. A little investigation will show why gold, silver, or any other metalic money, is not abso- lute money. All kinds of metalic money comes from the earth, through the agency of labor, and has a commcrcial value, and when a metalic 100 cents, coin value, is made out of a piece of metal that has a 70 cent commercial value, it lacks 70 cents in the dollar of be- ing absolute money; in other words, there is 70 cents commodity, and 30 cents absolute money in the metalic dollar. Consequently full ...

Organized labor of New Jersey has secured the passage of many important bills this session, among which is a law to establish an ar- bitration board, protection of trade marks and labels, for the incor- poration of trade unions, an anti- Pinkerton law, fifty-five hours work in factories, and Saturday half holiday. Golden promises of work on a railroad in New York led 200 col- ored laborers to leave Columbia, Tenn., recently, and while on their way to the Empire State became stranded in this cfty.

April 28.1892. SOUTHERN MERCURY. 13 ALLIANCE ALLUSIONS We are out of Rituals, but will fill all orders as soon as we ejet them. The secretary of Johnson County Alli- ance is a young lady, Miss Fannie Moss. Crawfordville Alliance No. 1940 passed resolutions endorsing Harry Tracy and denouncing his maligners. Bro. T. M. Johnson, writing us from Farmington, says that Bro. Albright made a great success in his work at that place. The County Alliance of Fayette coun- ty adopted the St. Louis conference plat form, and resolved "that we will not be- sidetracked on false issues." A letter from a Shandon, Cal., sub- scriber says: "I read a half dozen re- form papers, but none are more fearless and outspoken than the Southern Mek- cury." J. B. Chaffln writes: "I want to con- gratulate you on the Mercury. It gets better every week, and I must say that the two last papers are worth the price of the paper for a year."

The Need of a Postal Savings Bank. We have had frequent inquiries about the postal savings bank fea- ture in the financial plank of the "St. Louis platform." This part of our demands haft not been dis- cussed as fully as some others, yet it will prove upon investigation, to be of vast benefit to the people. The views of Samuel Patterson of Ohio, which we subjoin will throw some light on this question. In the Chicago Express of recent date he says: What our country has lost for want of a postal savings system may be reckoned in hun- dreds of millions, if not billions of dollars. That g. o. p., about which we have heard so much in the past score pf years, made one of its greatest blunders in all its financial records in not instituting a system for savings throughout the postoffice department....

Whaley, two and a half miles north of .Lancaster, in this (Dallas) county, writes us that last Sunday night some one poisoned his well and cistern water with "Rough on rats," but that the poison was detected before any damage was done. Mr. Whaley is said to be an old resident, a very peaceable, and in every respect a good citizen, and why one should do such a fiendish act, is a mys- tery. People should be on their guard. The exponents of plutocracy, are continually throwing the assertion into the teeth of the agriculturists, that the breadwinners in the cities will desert them on election day, and return to their old political al- legiance. In the cities, the same gang are dinning it into the ears of the artisans, that the farmers want high produce and low wages. They have not learned that those who feed, clothe, house, warm, and move commerce, have talked the matter over, and agreed that all they want i...

SOUTHERN MERCURY. Hay 5, 1892. WILL YOU BE FIBMP There is no sense in equivocat- ing and hesitating. Business is business. If we expect or desire success we must adopt methods that are the results of careful, thoughtful, deliberate considera- tion* Our aims should be clearly and distinctly defined, and boldly and considerately defended. In the lingo of the day we must "keep in the middle of the road." Instead of making our principles and demands conform to party de- clarations, demand that party de- clarations and platforms shall con- form to our demands and princi- ples. If our demands are just, let us stand by thern in a spirit of truth and loyalty. If they are not the sooner we abandon them the bet- ter it will be for all. The history of all reforms, civil, social or relig- ious, is marked by clear cut plans, devised by brave and intelligent leaders. Opposition' is one of the evidences of success. No great innovation was ever perfected, yea inaugurated, without strenuous oppositi...

By the way, this moving business is one of the beautiful features of your benign legislation, an. out- growth of yonr boasted political reforms; but really, you look so smiling and satisfied, one would think you had just waked from a dream in which you was in fancy transported to the full realization of your most ardent desires and sanguine expectations.

May 5, 1898. SOUTHERN EEHCUHY. ) : ! \ j I . L Independent Folitioal Action Our Only Hope. Enough progress has already been made in the selection of dele- gates to the national conventions of both the democratic and repub- lican factions, to leave no doubt that Grover Cleveland will receive the democratic nomination, and Benjamin Harrison the republican nomination for president in 1892. Enough has been said and pub- lished to make it certain that the platforms of both parties, in 1892, will be in essence a repetition of those of 1888. Such being the case, the last door of hope for reforms, beneficial to the masses, is closed, and those who desire reforms in line with good government, must look elsewhere. This is the out- look, and it will become a reality within the next sixty days. The only hope visible, is in independ- ent political action. Those who were cognizant of the trend of af- fairs, and familiar with the policy of the powers behind the throne of the democratic and republi...
