THE SQUTH'S ENEMIES. DUl Arp Write a Few L nm About In Clls, Sherman 4k Co. It is curio 113 how our thoughts run, away and meander around and then come back and take a new start. The will do this in spit of us and we won der how they got away off from the matter we were thinking about. But there is always some provocation or hey wouldn't go. I was ruminating about Senator IngalU and his great learning and scholarship and wonder ful gifts as an orator and thinker. 1 was wondering how he could prostitute those talents to the low-down, mean, contemptible business of slandering the South and manufacturing willful and malicious lies about our people. Then I thought of John Sherman in the same connection and it seemed to me a monstrosity that men should have such brains and the deTil control their hearts. How is that?

When free from toiling through the live-long day. There come to me from changeful embers gleaming Familiar faces long since passed stray. There come to me the melodies of childhood. Like flute-notes wafted on the twilight air, Or bird-song from the dingle in the wildwood. When deeper shades of evening gather there. .And vagiant fancy, like some minstrel rover. Wakes tuneful notes Xrom mem'ry's golden keys, Until I catch the scent of blooming clover And hear the low, sweet murmur of the bees. Until again in woodland haunts I ramble With bare, brown feet, and heart untouched with care. Or gather tribute from each grape and bramble. As songful as the mock-bird singing there. Until, alas ! the feeble embers dying. The pleasing phantoms vanish from my sight; And naught is heard save tearful, sad winds , sighing. And in my ...

He does believe, how ever, in unhesitating submission to the -constitutional will of the majority af ter it nas oeen declared in forms pre scribed in the constitution or under it a.nd not opposing it. This latter belief -he holds in common with all Denio- rats. Few Democrats are ready to adopt his views against second terms. They reason that if Washington. Jef ferson, Madison and Jackson served second terms. Mr. Cleveland, in view of such precedent." can afford to sacri fice his private opinion to the constitu tional will of the majority. There is uo issue involved.
