fm m Mystery of Deadman's Flat 1 CHAPTEB 1IL In one of tho rooms of a handaom* bouse in New York a dainty luncheon was set out, tho table being resplendent with polished glass, silver and luxuriant flowers. The men servants had just left tho room, dismissed by tho girl who sat alone at the head of the table. Her dhaas was costly and beautiful, like everything also in the room; her face was refined and protty, too; but it looked very troubled, and the tears that gath- ered slowly in her eyee and fell upon her folded hands showed the reason for her wishing to be alone. It was hateful to have to sit there to nako a pretense of eating when her heart was aching, and sho felt that every mouthful would choke her. The old uncle with whom sho lived, though lav- ishing every luxury upon her, was a ■tern martinet and would have thought that the orderliness of his household was In danger of being disturbed if his niboe did not sit down every day at the same hour to the bountiful repasts laid ou...

If I understand the word properly, it simply means two or more persons going into any kind of an undertaking or employment together,—such as cutting wood, splitting rails, farming, or any other kind of work, for the purpose of benefiting themselves indi- vidually and the public generally. If aman benefits himself, to a certain ex- tent that man benefits otheis So, to co-operate properly, they must begin at the right place—the starting point. Then, they must agree in every thing, and woik or pull together; for if one pulls this way and the other pulls in a different way, as a matter of <act there could not be any co-operation. But where the pulling is done all one way, it would be proof that there is or was pulling together done. Hence, the word "co-operation," which very clear- ly demonstrates the fact that there is, or was, pulling togethe...

Is it possible to devise a method for the issuance of this currency that will be constitutional and in consonance with the genius and spirit of our free and democratic institutions, which are opposed to all forms of paternal govern- ment, and to an increase beyond due limits of federal patronage? Pause and reflect upon these proposi- tions. If these methods proposed by the farmers cannot be made to conform fully to them, they should not be adopt- ed; if they can, do they not deserve, and should they not receive, the support of all classes?. At the fore-front of the argument it is demanded that the proposed currency must be sound and stable, and that it shall pass at all times on a gold basis; this is fundamental. The body politic abhors a depreciated currency. Busi- ness congests beneath its blighting in- fluence, and se...

Devoted to a Dineustfioii of nnd JuH-roLungc of Ideaft, as to tht Needs, Duties uud "Rights" of the Farmer's Wife. Dear Sisters:— I have heard it said that one reason why women do not take their places more rapidly by the sides of men as biead winners is because, while men will catch at the first thing that offers, hoping l y faithfulness and industry to win his way higher, when the same place is offered a woman she will hesi- tate and consider; and it is said that the woman who hesitates fails. This is very true. We must have confi- dence in ourselves, else how can we hope to impress others. Woman must merit every preferment given her, hence the question is not so much a matter of propriety as of fitness, for there is absolutely no closed doors for the efficient hand. The secret of sue- cess is to learn one thing thoroughly. The wide awake, energetic girl of to- day has f...

i> ,r THE SOIJTHVK* \|«I tfKir* DALLAS, fttXAft, TH'**--' V. OOfOttfcUt 9, j v < Qreensand Marli. (By Prof. E. T. Mumfcell, State Geologist] It is well known that in almost ev- ety county ia the timbered region of East Ttxas a laige proportion of the soils are o' a sandy character, and if of any une at all as farming lands soon wear out. These are in part the pine lands of that region. Any meihod of restoring their fertility which combines certainty of such increase with very little outlay must be of interest to the owners of such lauds and to those who till them. The reports of the Geological Survey contain much of the information de- sired; out as the edition of those re ports is necessarily limited they are not accessible to the great majority of those to be benefited by them. I therefore take this method of giving greater publicity to one of the import- ant facts developed by the Survey, and hope the publishers of Texas newspa- pers will assist in disseminating the informa...

Again, we fail to see how our brother would keep his volume of cur- rency from expanding, and, thereby, distributing its stability, if he should base it upon population, or from ex- panding and contracting, as commercial values increase or decrease, if he should base it upon commercial val- ues; and aside from this, we can not see how he could avoid "an additional tax upon the labor of the country" to take the census every year, and thus by keeping a horde of census takers continually amongst the people, in- crease the patronage of the president. We are not so sure that the plan, if enacted into law, would not be "class legislation" of the same sort that we have had so much of for twenty-five years. It might be a "pic-nic" for gold and silver "bugs." We are no stickler for the sub- the...

In the possession of trae morals and Christian virtues America has no equal but it is painrully evident there is not a nation on the face of the earth in which bad men have such facilities for acquiring and retaining power. They win election to seats in the national legislature by fraud and bribery; they pcrch like foul birds in the offices of great cities; they fatten upon public spoils; they disgrace Christian civiliza- tion and free institutions; they debase the moral sense of the nation. Who is responsible for this ? Not the badtnen uuinly, for if the devil is permitted to manage the politics of a nation, we expect him to do it. Poli tics are in his particular line.
