Nov. S, 1898. SOUTHERN MERCURY. 14 Care For the Eyes. Never rub your eyes or allow your children to do so from their cradles. Veils are tad for the sight, especially those spotted or covered with a pattern, so eschew veils when you can, or wear the softest, dearest net when obliged to do so. Never read in bed or when lying on the sofa. Sit with your back to the light when en- gaged in reading or working. Pale blues and greens are most restful wall papers for the eyes, whereas red is exceedingly fatiguing. Do not read, write or work longer than two hours together without resting your eyes and closing them for at least five minutes. These are the vcorrts of a French woman „ who is aid uo know what she is talking auaut. Who Is Responsible f Who is responsible for this con dition? The democratic and re- publican parties for its present state. You will be responsible if it continues. Neither Harrison nor Cleveland will represent the masses. Both oppose silver free coinage.

SOUTHERN KBKCKY. Hot. t, MM E* How Will Ton Meet The Xuuef No luting good is accomplished by evasion. The truly courageous man will never seek to dodge, but will meet every difficulty and op- position fairly and squarely and strive to overcome it. The present is a critical period in the world's history. Everywhere is a feeling of unrest and nneasinesp. This feeling is not oonfined to any class. It is snared by rich and poor, by wise and unwise. Let us then lee what is the trouble and calmly discuss the best way to overcome it. flere is the explanation: The toiling masses (bv the toiling masses we mean tne people who work with their hands as well as with their brains) are dissatisfied with their condition and are deter* mined to improve it. They have studied the matter and they do not think they are suffering from their own intemperance; for mostofthem are not intemperate, while many wealthy and prosperous people are. They do not believe their lack of industry is the oause; for they ...

SOUTHERN MERCURY. Not. 10,1891 monet kings. BT DR. LYMAN ALLEN. Reliable information regarding the number of millioDaires, and especially the amount and source oí individual wealth, are not readi- ly obtainable. A statement of the amount of wealth ot any of our great millionaires phould be taken as approximate. We have, asa rule, no means of ascertaining wi h exactness the wealth oí rich men in the United States, except after their death. In England, where an income tax is collected from the rich, it becoims the business oi the government to know the wealth of individuals. But we muy learn the amount of the wealth of our rieh men with sufficient accuracy for our comparisons. Mr. Thomas G. Sherman, in his Forum article, has made an exten- ded enumeration of some of our great millionaires, with an es* i mate of their individual wealth, which is probably as nearly correct as may be iound. The New York Tribune has also lurnished an ex- tended list of men throughout the country who are r...

Jennings and others in- cluding the estate of Charles Pratt, representing the Standard Oil trust have a combined wealth of about $300,000,000. There is a considerable number of millionaires who have made their fortunes mainly in banking and in merchandising, but there is no instance oí a fortune having been made in eisher ot these lines which amounts to even one-half as much as those of the great railway kings, unless we except the Astor estate, and this was not, for it was built up mainly by the rise in value of New York real estate. Neither bankers, merchants, nor men engaged in any other ordinary calling, where there is no special opportunity for controlling an en tire line of trade, have furnished any very marked examples of great miUionaires. The n ost prominent ot these are A. T. Stewart, H. B. Claflo, John V. Farwell and Mar- shall Field among merchants and F. A. Drexel, A. J. Drexel, J. S. Morgan, J...

It is all very well to talk of in dividual rights, of the freedom of contract, of the value of competi- tion and of other elementary prin- ciples. But it is not no weU to ig- nore the revolutionized conditions under which such conditions have to work. New problems may require new solutions. As we reasoned last month, federated cap- ital and federated labor make pos sible a sort of coi flict thai can only be averted by some such new remedy as official arbitration. In like manner may it not be possible that the huge excrescence on legit imate trade, known as "short sell ing" or dealing in "futures" and "options" may justly and wisely be subjected to official remedy? Selling limitless quantities of wheat or cotton that the seller does not possess and that the buyer does not expect receive, is a comparatively Dew thing under the sun. It subjects the market for st...

SOUTHERN MERCURY, '1 ■Sk*—j$¿ ANCE Has been practiced for over two hundred years and in the last half century it has grown with such rapidity that it is now one of the greatest interests in the world. The assets of thirty old line American companies far exceed the com- bined capital of all the National Banks in America. WHAT HA THE PATRONS ? r In a direct way, not a cent. Since organization the old line investment companies of America have paid policyholders or their heirs and now have on deposit over $200,000,000 more than they have received in premiums. In addition to paying all death claims, matured policies and expenses by judiciously loaning and investing the money, the companies have earned the policy holders, as ab we stated, over two hundred million dollars on their savings. They have paid to widows and orphans hundreds of millions of dollars, and to-day living policy holders are receiving millions of dollars per annum from matured policies and annuities to as...

We again ask the attention of our reaners to another article which throws light on the so-called "future" business, and reveals in some measure its calamitous effects upon the South, and especially on our cotton growers.

It agriculture is ever relieved of its unjust burdens and the pro ducing classes ever triumph to the extent of repealing iniquitous and discriminating legislation, their organizations must necessa- rily be perpetuated. Producers as individu lis have never gotten any concessions from the law making powers of this country, says the Journal of Agriculture. It was not until the farmers organized, formulated their grievaeces and thui dered them in the ears of leg islatures and that the voice of pro ductive lab>r was heard. The individual farmer or any other laborer has no influence on politi- cians; but a man with a few mill ions ot dollars that class legisla- tion has given him can, on account of his "superior intelligence," his contributions to campaign funds and fcis ability to furnish votes, dictate the kind of legislation he wants and is even allowed to draf...

14 SMJTKSRN MRftiRT. Nov. 10, 189* The Basulta of Disoorery. Four hundred years have passed away sinoe Columbus discovered the New World, and it behooves us, as thinking men and women, to pause and ask ourselves, "What effect has this great discovery had npon our race, and have the expec tations of philanthropists been realized?" The first century after the discovery was, as history telli us, spent in explorations of the new territory and bears plain marks of that praotical spirit which hao always marred the human charac- ter, and will probable continue to mar it, until more equitable and humane conditions bear the super- structure of sooiety. Every poten- tate of Europe fitted out expedi- tions and hastened to appropriate some of the tempting plunder, some basing their aggressions upon the right of discovery, others on that of conquest, and others again upon the grant of the pope, all ignoring the right of the previous ownership. It is hardly worth while to weigh the validity of th...
